Anime jojo dio
Originally a man of low birth but peerless ambition, Dio is a cunning villain of little conscience and has an insatiable hunger for power. After becoming a vampire and later a Stand user, Dio has gathered many minions around him and is responsible for many major events of the series. His legacy and influence persists throughout the first six parts of JoJo , with characters either being related to him or inspired by him, such as Enrico Pucci. Wielding the all-powerful The World , he is the first main antagonist to be introduced with a Stand and is among the most well-known characters of the series. Dio is the father of Giorno Giovanna , the protagonist of Vento Aureo , as well as a handful of other illegitimate offspring. When he first arrives at the Joestar Estate , Dio wears typical formal boys attire from that era; a blue coat, white dress shirt, a tie, suspenders, breeches, and a pair of striped socks.

DIO was years, 9 months and 6 days old. The poor son of Dario Brando, an abusive alcoholic who worked Dio's mother to death, Dio holds an inordinate amount of enmity toward others. As the series' most prolific villain, his defining trait is his staunch ambition, which manifests in a peerless desire for power, no matter the cost. When beginning the series, Dio was the character that Araki looked forward to drawing the most. He also revealed that he had not thought up a weakness for the character and that it was difficult to come up with a way for Dio to be defeated.
In regard to Dio's characterization, Araki said that he was inspired by FBI profiling of serial killers, admitting that in a way he thinks they must be incredibly strong to be able to commit the heinous crimes that they do. How serial killers control their victims through psychological manipulation interested Araki as well, a trait similar to how Dio uses his charisma to ensure his followers to do his bidding.
Upon entering the Joestar estate after his father died, Dio wasted no time unequivocally making young Jonathan's life a living hell to take everything from him including abusing and later killing Jonathan's dog, Danny.
Dio underestimated Jonathan's retaliation for forcefully kissing his beloved Erina Pendleton, spending the next seven years feigning to be Jonathan's friend before enacting his plan to steal the Joestar fortune by poisoning George with the same poison he used to kill Dario.
When Jonathan investigates the matter for proof, Dio plots to use an ancient Aztec stone mask to murder Jonathan. However, Dio learns the mask transforms the wearer into a vampire when exposed to blood, and uses it on himself when his scheme is exposed. Although seemingly killed when Jonathan impales him on a stone statue and leaves him in the burning Joestar mansion, Dio survives, and proceeds to start his subjugation of England in the small village of Windknight's Lot, amassing sired followers to his cause.
Jonathan is sought out by Will A. Zeppeli, a master of an ancient martial art called Hamon, which can kill Vampires. He teaches Jonathan how to use this ability as Dio sends other vampires and zombies in his pursuit to kill him so he can take over the world. Jonathan seemingly kills him once more, but Dio's head survives. With the help of his servant, Wang Chan, Dio attacks Jonathan on a steam liner during his honeymoon with Erina in an attempt to claim his enemy's body for his own.
Despite having his throat fatally punctured by Dio, Jonathan is able to use Hamon one last time to overload the ship's engines, with Dio apparently destroyed in the resulting explosion. Erina, escaping unharmed with an orphaned girl, survives with their unborn son. As he is dormant in the sunken ship, Dio Brando does not appear in Battle Tendency , but the aftermath of his apparent death at the hands of Jonathan Joestar affects the plot.
George II's wife, the orphaned girl Elizabeth, hunted down this zombie and killed him with her Hamon. However, as none else recognized the zombie's true identity, she became a wanted murderer and was forced into hiding as Lisa Lisa with the help of the Speedwagon Foundation that was founded by Robert E.
Lisa Lisa would later encounter her son Joseph Joestar , teaching him Hamon so he can defeat the Pillar Man, Kars, whose creation of the Stone masks made him indirectly responsible for Dio's transformation. It is revealed in Stardust Crusaders that Dio survived the ship's explosion and attached himself as a head to Jonathan's headless body as the ship sank, confining himself in a casket at the bottom of the ocean for a century until a shipwreck salvage operation unintentionally retrieved him in Since Dio is using Jonathan's body, he could use Jonathan's Stand.
As his head is attached to Jonathan's body, Dio's acquisition of The World also awakens Stand abilities in all of Jonathan's living descendants. While Joseph Joestar and his grandson Jotaro Kujo have the resolve to control their Stands, Joseph's daughter and Jotaro's mother Holly has her very life sapped away from her own Stand because of her kind disposition.
Dio responds by preemptively trying to assassinate the Joestars before they can find him in his lair in Cairo , sending other evil Stand users, some of whom namely Kakyoin and Polnareff he controlled mentally before they joined the Joestars on their journey.
Dio kills Jotaro's friend Kakyoin in combat and temporarily kills Joseph after draining him of his blood, but Jotaro's own Stand Star Platinum proves to be The World's equally powered counterpart, and Jotaro's own rage at Dio being the cause of his friends' deaths and his mother's dwindling health leads him to kill Dio with Star Platinum. After the Speedwagon Foundation revives Joseph via blood transfusion from Jonathan's corpse, he and Jotaro take their ancestor's corpse out into the desert and expose it to sunlight, vanquishing Dio once and for all.
Dio is not present in either Diamond Is Unbreakable or Golden Wind , but his influence on the story is still present.
In Diamond Is Unbreakable , it is revealed that Dio acquired his Stand by means of an ancient artifact known as the "Bow and Arrow", which has reappeared in the fictional Japanese town of Morioh because the children of one of Dio's former lackeys, Mr. Nijimura, are seeking out someone who can possibly kill their father and put him out his misery due to the strange mutation he has suffered as a result of Dio's death. In Golden Wind , the protagonist Giorno Giovanna is Dio's son, but because Dio was in possession of Jonathan's body at the time of Giorno's conception, Giorno is biologically Jonathan's son and thus a member of the Joestar family, and his own virtuous soul prevents him from becoming evil as Dio was, thanks to his encounter with a heroic gangster in his childhood life.
Dio's influence on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure returns in Stone Ocean , where it is revealed that he met the story arc's main antagonist, Father Enrico Pucci, shortly before the events of Stardust Crusaders.
He told Father Pucci of his desire to use his Stand, The World in order to reach "Heaven", and saw in the young priest a friendship that would help him achieve his goals. Father Pucci's reverence for Dio drives him to carry out his plans decades later, manipulating events to frame Jotaro Kujo's daughter Jolyne Cujoh for murder in order to trap her in the prison where he serves as a chaplain, using the final physical remains of Dio to evolve his Stand to reset reality in what he believes is Dio's vision of Heaven, a world where everyone knows their own destiny, and more importantly a world free of the Joestar bloodline.
However, his hubris leads to his defeat at the hands of Jolyne's last surviving friend Emporio, who manages to reset reality back to what it once was, but not quite exactly the way it was before, as, in this new version of the world, Pucci is missing instead of the Joestars. Dio Brando himself does not appear in Steel Ball Run , set in an alternate universe in , and is replaced by Diego Brando. Like Dio, Diego is the child of an abusive household, and one who reveres his mother.
She instilled in him a sense of pride that he took with him as he became a masterful jockey in his adulthood. As a result of this encounter, however, he gains his own Stand Scary Monsters, which grants him the same abilities that he now has under his control.
Diego is hired by United States President Funny Valentine in his quest to seek out the pieces of the Saint's Corpse scattered along the racecourse, but after some time fighting against the heroes Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppeli, he realizes that President Valentine's plans are more dangerous to the world as a whole and joins the heroes in an attempt to stop him, only to die during his quest as well.
Valentine then uses his Stand's powers to summon a Diego Brando from an alternate universe. This Diego possesses the same stand powers as the original Dio Brando, due to having his own version of The World as a Stand. He manages to defeat Johnny Joestar in battle and wins the Steel Ball Run, in addition to obtaining all of the Saint's Corpse and hiding it in a secure location, even though President Valentine has already been killed by Johnny in a fight.
However, in this alternate universe Diego meets his demise at the hands of Lucy Steel, who uses the skull of this universe's Diego Brando to obliterate his own head as a result of the effects of Valentine's Stand.
Above all else, Dio Brando is known for his cunning and careful consideration. He attains superhuman speed, regeneration, and strength insofar as he can lift a road roller with ease - a frequent source of references in popular culture. While powerful, it does not kill people instantly seen at the end of Phantom Blood, a victim of the attack survives - although he died shortly after.
He can also graft body parts of different beings together, an ability he used to take Jonathan Joestar's headless body as his own. Once he returns years later with Jonathan's body, Dio lost many of the abilities he had in his original body. Despite this, Dio's new undead body enabled him to develop his signature Stand, The World, once it was pierced by the Bow and Arrow. As a psychic manifestation of Dio, it has all of his aforementioned superhuman abilities and facilitates melee attacks, though its signature ability is to stop time.
This time-stopping ability only lasts for a limited amount of time which in the anime adaptation of Stardust Crusaders is heavily exaggerated , though this limit can be extended through practice or through other means of increasing the user's strength such as when Dio was able to increase his limit by several seconds after drinking Joseph Joestar's blood.
In addition, Dio gained access to a second stand through the use of Jonathan's body; this unnamed stand bears a resemblance to Joseph's Hermit Purple, and has the ability of divination. Dio's Part 7 counterpart, Diego Brando, first encounters Scary Monsters when he comes into conflict with its original user Dr. Ferdinand, Ferdinand "infects" Diego, as well as an entire village, transforming them into dinosaurs. After gaining the Left Eye Corpse Part, Diego gains his own version of Scary Monsters that allows him to transform himself or others including his horse Silver Bullet into dinosaur versions of themselves, partially or entirely.
Scary Monsters grants Diego increased strength, speed, healing, and "dynamic vision". Dynamic vision provides Diego with excellent eyesight however he can only see objects which are moving, similar to that of the Tyrannosaurus Rex in Jurassic Park. After Diego's death by the hands of Funny Valentine, Valentine summons a Diego from an alternate universe.
The design of Diego's The World is very similar to that of Part 3, apart from its skinnier profile and the replacement of the hearts on The World's knees for capital Ds. Dio has had many different voice actors in different types of media. He is voiced by both Kenji Nojima and Hikaru Midorikawa in the Phantom Blood video game and animated film as the younger and older incarnations, respectively.
Dio Brando has appeared in many video games related to the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise, usually as a player character or a boss. Furthermore, he has appeared as a playable character in several crossover video games, such as Jump Super Stars , Jump Ultimate Stars , and Jump Force.
Although the video game begins with the final scenes of Stardust Crusaders , the antagonist is a version of Dio from another universe who managed to beat the Joestar family. He seeks to control all universes by means of the Saint's Corpse , and uses his more advanced powers over time to bring all of the fallen heroes and villains back to life to serve him in preventing Jotaro Kujo and the other Joestars from obtaining all of the Saint's Corpse, or at least using them to gather the parts so he can steal them from them and achieve his ultimate power.
Dio has generally received praise from various reviewers of manga, anime, and other media; most praised his frightening and enjoyably evil personality making an appealing antagonist, as well as his influence on the rest of the series. Rebecca Silverman of Anime News Network notes that his far-reaching influence throughout the entire series works especially well as a stark contrast to his humble origins.
Readers of Anime News Network voted Dio number one in a poll of which anime villains would make the best friends in real life for his "cool composure" and "awesome lines". In February , a life-size statue of Dio was displayed at Wonder Festival to promote the event. Starting in June , Dio began appearing on cans of Japanese best-selling java Georgia coffee, as part of a special promotion of their Emerald Mountain Black flavor.
Several characters in Japanese anime, manga, and video games draw inspiration from Dio. One such example is Sakuya Izayoi from the Touhou Project. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

If you're looking for an isekai anime that doesn't take itself too seriously and does things a little differently, Uncle From Another World might be the isekai for you this summer! Here's all you need to know about Uncle From Another World Episode 3, its release date, time, and more! Reverse isekai are not yet as common as the ones who unironically use most genre conventions, but as the isekai genre becomes more saturated, you can expect deconstructions to pop up. By now, many viewers who had dismissed Uncle from Another World as just another isekai realize they might have been wrong. Uncle From Another World has elements of both normal and reverse iseaki. Takafumi's uncle was truly isekai'd to another world back in the 90s when he fell into a coma, but now he's back and has a lot to catch up with. So far, many of the viewers who were able to access the first episode of the show were left with positive impressions. So far, AtelierPontdarc didn't have a great reputation but the design of Uncle From Another World proved decent, and the anime looks pretty funny. The presence of such big names promises a recipe for success - at least as far as performances are concerned! Episode 2 was equally interesting, and the Sega references were much appreciated by viewers.

Newer fans of the long-running shounen battle anime JoJo's Bizarre Adventure will likely have been enticed to get into the series by way of its iconic battle sequences, dozens of quotable lines, outrageous powers, and memorable characters. The series is sprawling, however, and to get to that endlessly-memed battle between Dio and Jotaro in Part 3, newcomers to the series will have to watch or read Parts 1 and 2 to get the full context for what's going on. Impatience is a natural human failing, and is not uncommon among an anime fan with a considerable backlog of shows. This tendency has lead to the controversial practice known as "part skipping" among JoJo fans; wherein new viewers hop over Part 1 to get to the "good stuff" in Part 3 quicker. The practice while understandable, is misguided, because there's a lot of great stuff that shouldn't be missed in Phantom Blood.
Many people watch anime to escape reality. Upon the help of anime, they are able to experience what it would be like to live in a fantasy world. Many anime have various features, which they may enjoy while resting. Despite the fact that not every anime is filled with joyous themes, there are many anime where viewers must look at mortifying incidents.
