~ Gold Experience's battle cry

Giorno ger jojoeoh by crashrexez-db33hut
This is... Requiem. What you're seeing is indeed the truth. You are seeing the movements created by your abilities, but you will NEVER arrive at the truth that's going to happen. None who stand before me shall ever get there, regardless of their abilities. This is the power of Gold Experience Requiem!
~ Gold Experience Requiem to Diavolo


Giorno Giovanna is the illegitimate son of Dio Brando in Jonathan Joestar's body, and is the fifth "JoJo" in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and the main protagonist of Part V: Vento Aureo. Born in Japan as Haruno Shiobana, he moves with his mother to Italy when she marries his new stepfather. Years later in 2001, he is encountered by Koichi Hirose after he had been informed by Jotaro Kujo that he is DIO's son. His intentions reveal that he wants to become a "Gang-Star" and later become the Boss of Neopolitian Gang Passione. After fighting Bruno Buccellati and passing Polpo's trial, he joins the Gang, becomes involved in a week-long mission of protecting Trish Una, and then aids Bruno in betraying the Gang and to assassinate the Boss of Passione.

In the showdown with the Boss, he acquires the Requiem Arrow and upgrades his Stand from Gold Experience to Gold Experience Requiem.

This is not the case for the corpses infused with Golden Experience's energy, however), Adaptation (A brick in an area exposed to a virus was turned into a snake with immunity to said virus), Enhanced Senses (Many of them, Giorno has taken advantage of this by making them follow his foes), Poison Manipulation (Snakes, scorpions, etc.), Flight (Birds, mosquitoes, etc.)

Weaknesses: Any damage taken by Gold Experience will be reflected onto Giorno. Gold Experience needs to hit an object to transform something. Its healing ability is not meant to heal and is rather painful when used that way. Needs a sufficient amount of heat to create the most life. | Any damage taken by GER will reflect onto Giorno.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Life Creation
  • Life Preservation
  • Life Giving
  • Body invasion through an animal
  • Organ Creation
  • 7 Page Muda Beatdown against Cioccolata
  • Gold Experience: Gold Experience is a yellow, humanoid Stand with green ladybug-themed decor scattered across various parts of its body. It uses melee attacks, but could also attack with lifeforms it creates.
    • Life Creation: Anything Giorno or Gold Experience touches that is abiotic will be able to become a life form of Giorno's choosing. Said organisms birthed can be preset to have advantages an evolved organism would have (i.e. immunity to a virus or life sensory), and any actions it is capable of performing is commanded by Giorno. If he gives life to an object inside a person, then he can even spawn animals inside people.
      • Life Preservation: Anything that was created into a living organism, once created, will never be able to be harmed. Any attempts or damage meant to connect with an object modified by Gold Experience will reflect at the person or object attacking it and damage them; possibly killing/destroying them.
      • Organ Creation: Gold Experience can turn inanimate objects into pieces of a human body or organ that can replace any damaged or removed ones from Giorno or anyone else he wishes to help. This can be seen as a technical form of "healing" but the process of replacing said organs is described as complicated and painful.
    • Life Giving: Anything that is already living that is punched or touched by Gold Experience will get a boosted amount of life. On humans, their thought processing accelerates to the point of them not being able to "correlate correctly" between body and mind. Senses are amplified and feel prolonged during this time (i.e. the duration of feeling pain would seem to increase, but in reality it is normal).
    • Zero Reset
    • Enhanced Life Giving
    Gold Experience Requiem:
    GER is a yellow humanoid Stand that is an upgraded form of Gold Experience. Its key feature is the head of the Stand Arrow placed on its forehead. It uses melee attacks and seems to have a voice and personality of its own. It can operate outside of Giorno's consciousness, and still retains the original abilities of Gold Experience.
    • Return to Zero: GER can take the entirety of something and revert it to a previous state. This includes any action the target takes and leaves GER unaffected by it (i.e. Giorno would be affected by time stop, but GER would not). This puts anything it affects in a constant loop of being put back to zero depending on what GER has done to the target. If GER was to kill a person, they would be constantly put in an infinite loop of deaths, each one varying from the next. This loop lasts forever and can be activated from contact to as little as its attention. It can be described as taking the "effect" out of "cause and effect".

Key: Gold Experience | Gold Experience Requiem

Note 2: It is truly unknown whether Giorno's stand lost its Requiem form or not when the Stand arrow fell off after the fight with Diavolo.
