Sorry, but there's no way in hell I'm gonna lose to you. Not yet, at least.

You can't win unless you hunger, but not like Dio. You need to hunger in a much more noble manner.
~ Johnny Joestar

Choosing that horse was correct. Old horses have experience.

In this kind of race. They don't charge into dangerous territory on impulse and strain their legs. Unlike the young ones who are all about power.

~ Gyro Zeppeli to Johnny

~ Tusk

The rotation is alive! Even if the bullet becomes a hole, the Spin is alive within the hole...
~ Johnny upon gaining ACT2

I've realized! Where I should shoot my nail bullets...! I have to shoot myself! The Golden Rotation will take me toward a new path!
~ Johnny Joestar

It has, truly truly, been a roundabout path...Arigatou, Gyro.
~ Johnny Joestar
~ ACT4's battle cry

Part 8 Johnny
I won't use The Holy Corpse anymore. It will bring misfortune to someone somewhere.

George Joestar, I'm glad I was able to meet you... That is... Enough for me... I couldn't exchange that for anything. I have found a happiness... That can not be replaced.

It will be exchanged for something of equivalent value, but I have something here I can't exchange for anything.

~ Johnny Joestar's final words


Johnny Joestar is the seventh "JoJo" in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and one of the two main protagonists of Part VII: Steel Ball Run. A prodigy jockey in his youth, his life spirals downward when he is shot in the back and left a paraplegic. Years later in 1890, right before the cross-country Steel Ball Run race, he is lured by the mystical abilities of Gyro Zeppeli and his steel balls when touching one of them causes his legs to move. After numerous attempts, Gyro gives in and indulges Johnny in the Spin as long as he helped him win the race.

Johnny eventually becomes involved in the search of the nine parts of the Holy Corpse after attracting a left arm into his body. He believes that with the Holy Corpse, he can get himself back to "zero", but is conflicted by Funny Valentine and his patriotic ideals.

Powers and Abilities:

Extrasensory Perception (Capable of seeing ghosts and souls among some other supernatural forces that are normally otherwise invisible), Invisibility (Only other Stand Users can see Stands), Non-Corporeal (Stands are the incorporeal manifestations of one's vital energy, and can only be harmed by other Stands), Non-Physical Interaction (Stands can interact with ghosts and other Stands), Selective Intangibility, Flight (Within its effective range), Aura, Power Bestowal (Allows Johnny to fire nails like bullets and grant him access to the spin) with ACT1 | Same as before, Enhanced and homing nail bullets powered by the Golden Rotation that upon impact leaves a hole that will chase an intended target for several seconds, the holes can move damage from objects and targets to something else and the holes themselves negate durability with ACT2 | Same as before, Spatial Manipulation and Creation of holes or "portals" by shooting himself to reach a boundary between dimensions, while utilizing these portals Johnny can reach Small Size (Type 9) as well as control his body parts freely, also acts as a temporary case of Dimensional Storage with ACT3. The holes resist BFR

Attack Potency: Human levelBuilding level+ with ACT1 (Its shots could destroy a portion of this boulder and drew Diego's blood) | Building level+ with ACT2 (Johnny states that his bullets are stronger than ACT1's), Golden Rotation shots ignore durability | Building level+ with ACT3 (Johnny states that his bullets are stronger than ACT1's), Golden Rotation shots ignore durability | Building level+ with ACT4 (As it is the bullet shot by Johnny, it harmed THE WORLD in a blind shot). Unknown with the Infinite Rotation (Stated to generate infinite rotational energy, but whether this energy only causes the infinite spinning effect or is also applied as direct destructive force is unclear. Additionally, the attack is primarily hax based and thus bypasses durability, making it difficult to determine its strength)

Speed: Below Average Human initially (Due to being disabled, he is only forced to crawl at worst) with Massively FTL reactions (Shot Funny Valentine before D4C had a chance to attack him; shot THE WORLD in the shoulder). Massively FTL attack speed with ACT1 | Massively FTL with ACT2 | Massively FTL with ACT3 | Massively FTL with ACT4 (It is the bullet itself that Johnny shoots)

Durability: Wall level (Survived having being shot on several occasions including that to the head and neck, was thrown around by his horse for an entire day and night, even being thrown into a wooden fence breaking it, kicked by his horse to initiate ACT4). Wall level with ACT1 | At least Wall level with ACT2 | At least Wall level with ACT3 | Building level+ with ACT4

Stamina: Superhuman (Survived through several shootouts, managed to live even after having been shot in the head).

Range: At least 10 meters ACT1's nail bullets | Longer with ACT2 | Longer with ACT3 | At least 10~20 meters with ACT4. Multiversal with Infinite Rotation (Will chase people throughout multiple universes when in effect)

Standard Equipment: Slow Dancer (His horse), Tusk (His Stand), Zombie Horse (A long piece of thread that heals wounds and can reattach mutilated body parts as well as mending some internal damage), pieces of the holy corpse (Has the full corpse in Part 8), some herbs and plants used to accelerate his nail's regenerative process and one Steel Ball

Intelligence: High

Weaknesses: Paraplegic; Johnny cannot fire nail bullets if there are no nails left on him that haven't regrown. | No longer paraplegic although he still can't walk and move normally. Using the Golden Rotation will require longer times for his nails to grow back (about a minute upon firing). | Same as before. Using the Golden Rotation will require longer times for his nails to grow back. | Can walk normally now, ACT4 could only initially be called out by utilizing the energy generated by a horse's movement; without a horse, Johnny cannot use the Infinite Rotation (though this has been resolved before by mimicking the movement of one). The Infinite Rotation can transfer to Johnny if whatever is affected by it touches him.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Tusk ACT1: ACT1 is a small, pink Stand with an animal-like appearance and stars plastered all over its body. It does not physically attack or do anything, but it has carved messages into Johnny's arm and occasionally whispers to him.
    • Nail Bullets: Johnny incorporates the Spin into his fingernails, spinning them to become razor sharp and capable of firing them like bullets. They've easily cut through flesh and caused fatal wounds on people and Stand Users in just a few shots, and are more accurate and precise than standard bullets. Shooting one of these nail bullets will cost the removal of the nail fired, but will grow back after a short time.
  • Tusk ACT2: ACT2 is slightly larger than ACT1, gaining a lower torso among being bigger in general. It has the same colors and still does not attack physically.
    • Golden Rotation Bullets: Johnny incorporates the second lesson of the Spin, which involves a more advanced technique involving seeing targets and object like a golden rectangle, giving more powerful and accurate aureal rotation. These shots, once they make impact, leave a hole. These holes can travel among different surfaces and leave a trail as they do so. Shots act like homing missiles as they track down the object Johnny wishes to attack. Despite longer times for his nails to regrow, consuming herbs or tea can shorten these times of regrowth. Johnny can use the holes to move damage off himself onto something else or move the damage from one target to another. The holes created by this Stand can bypass dimensional walls and resist BFR and Spatial Manipulation.
  • Tusk ACT3: ACT3 is a bigger Stand with arms, legs, and spikes added on the ends of its limbs, finished with a large head and mohawk. It has the same colors and still does not attack physically.
    • Through the Hole: When Johnny shoots himself with the Golden Rotation bullet, he will be able to create an infinite hole for the area that is shot. These holes act like portals, which can be located separately and far away from Johnny. From this point, any part of his body that was shot will be removed from Johnny's body and moved to that location. If anything other than Johnny is sucked into that hole, it will be destroyed. Johnny can temporarily hide within the infinitely small space within these portals and move said portals manually.
