Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Man in The Mirror: Man in the Mirror is a humanoid type stand with a generally leathery aesthetic and what appears to be goggles for eyes. While it can use melee attacks, it is not meant to be a close combat stand. Instead, it is used to disarm its targets and bring them into the Mirror World. Illuso can bring things he chooses into the mirror world, and leave out other things. The things left still function, but only work on the outside world even if the person using them is inside the mirror world. Nothing alive exists within the mirror world except that which Illuso brings inside, and that which is on the outside cannot properly effect the Mirror World. Equipment, clothing, and other things on the person will be merely images made of spiritual energy while in the Mirror World, and thus have no actual function. Objects within the mirror world "belong to the realm of death" and can only be used, moved, or touched by Man in The Mirror. In addition, by taking in parts of people but not other parts, he can leave them part way through a mirror and incapacitate them, or divide them along the portals, splitting them as a result.
