Death Battle Fanon Wiki

Really? The "Let's do battle!" stance? You're not serious. No matter how you prepare, human ability is extremely limited and finite. Your Hamon training avails you nothing. It's USELESS, USELESS, USELESS, USELESS, USELESS, USELESS!
~ Dio Brando to Jonathan Joestar

Oh, so you still want to fight? It would appear pig-headedness runs in the family. How ungrateful can you be? You're blatantly ignoring your grandfather's wishes, even after he gave his life to tell you about the power of The World! Surely his pathetic pleas warranted a bit of consideration!
~ Dio to Jotaro Kujo

~ The battle cry of Dio's The World

Tell me, have you and JoJo kissed yet? I'll take that as a no. You thought your first kiss would be JoJo, but it was I, Dio!
~ Dio to Erina Pendleton

As Heaven Acension DIO[]


Dio was born in the gutters of 19th century London as the son of Dario Brando, an alcoholic and abusive father who he secretly despised for working his mother to an early grave. Having secretly poisoned him, Dario dies, telling Dio of the debt George Joestar believed he owes him twelve years prior and instructs him to use his wiles to take the Joestar fortune. Welcomed by George as a member of the family, Dio attempted to muscle the fortune by terrorizing Jonathan Joestar. But being caught off-guard by Jonathan's eventual retaliation after getting his love Erina Pendleton involved, Dio decides to bid his time until he proceeds to poison George while killing Jonathan with a stone mask that he assumed was a torture device.

But Dio later learned the mask turns its wearer into a vampire, using it on himself when his murder plot is exposed with a new ambition to take over Britain itself. Though Jonathan managed to decapitate him, Dio survived and killed his rival during his honeymoon across the Atlantic in an attempt to take the Joestar's body as his own. Despite Jonathan's attempt to kill his nemesis by sinking the ship they were it in, Dio succeeded in taking his rival's body and confined himself in a specially-prepared casket until 1983 when divers salvage it.

Traveling the world before making his presence known in 1987, working to remove the last traces of Jonathan's blood to gain full control of his new body, Dio becomes the nemesis of Jonathan's great-grandson Jotaro Kujo as he attempts to wipe out the Joestar line and then create "Heaven on Earth".

Powers & Abilities[]

  • Capable of fighting bare-fisted which he learned while living in the slums of London.
  • Naturally intelligent as he is cunning and perceptive while using his charisma to manipulate others like his followers or the many women he charmed through his life.
    • Calm, collective, and strategic, especially in Part 3.
    • When pushed to a corner, Dio discards his façade and becomes murderously unstable.
    • Willing to use deceit and dirty tricks to come out on top.


  • Inhuman Strength: Attains massive strength as a Vampire, allowing him feats such as forcibly walking on walls and single-handedly deflecting attacks such as Hierophant Green's Emerald Splash (Volleys of substantially-sized emeralds flying at speeds of at least FTL).
    • After absorbing Joseph's blood he is powerful enough to pick up and drop a steamroller on Jotaro.
  • Inhuman Speed: Also possesses enhanced speed and agility being able to barely react to Star Platinum's fists inches away from his skull and capable of deflecting Kakyoin's Emerald Splashes by himself.
  • Enhanced Sense: Demonstrated when placing his head on the ground to hear Jotaro's heartbeat, despite being a few meters away, Dio appears to have senses beyond human level.
  • Bloodsucking: Unlike stereotypical vampires, JoJo Vampires like Dio suck blood through tentacles in his fingers; he is able to regenerate through drinking blood this way.
  • Regeneration: Can regenerate his body faster than fire can consume it and can still regenerate from being blown into pieces (ex. Straits being blown up). His body is able to live even after having vital body parts amputated and he can also control his detached body parts (Ex. When he was still alive as a head in a jar).
  • Space Ripper Stingy Eyes: Is able to pressurize bodily liquid in his eyeballs and then create small openings in his pupils, eventually unleashing two fluid jets powerful enough to slice metal and stone. When Dio uses this ability for the first time, they were shown to be able to even reach clouds miles above his location.
  • Vaporizing Freeze Technique: By lowering the temperature of his own body drastically, Dio can freeze organic tissue with a touch. This technique is fast enough to freeze a full-grown man from the neck down in an instant.
  • Fusion: Capable of grafting parts of different creatures together to create hybrids, having used it to create half-human pets while in Windknights Lot and later grafted his bodiless head on the decapitated body of Jonathan.
  • Spores/Evil Implants: Can create parasites that he can use to take control of others, inserting them into their brains. If they are removed, the spores grow tentacles and attempt to kill both their former host and their would-be killer.
  • Hypnosis: Hypnotizing Jack the Ripper and village boy into doing his bidding (Anime Only).
  • Teleportation: Shows the ability to disappear by fading into darkness (Anime Only).
  • Healing: Can heal other people's wounds (Ex. Pucci's wounded foot by simply touching it).
  • Resurrection: Can bring people back to life as vampires by splashing his own blood on the body (Ex. Bringing Vanilla Ice back as a vampire after the former dying from decapitating himself).

Stand: The World[]

  • Super Strength, Senses, Speed: The World possesses phenomenal strength, senses, and faster-than-light speed, being able to easily punch Kakyoin right through his abdomen.
  • Its main offense is generally characterized by a flurry of speedy punches and the occasional kick, mirroring Star Platinum.
  • Time Stop: Stops time, allowing itself and DIO to act within the duration of the time stop (5 seconds in his weakened state, 9 seconds and increasing by a second every time he activates the ability in his awakened state).

Stand: Hermit Purple 2[]

  • Hermit Purple 2 is Jonathan Joestar's Stand that DIO is able to use because he has control over Jonathan's body. Hermit Purple 2 has shown use Spirit Photography similar to Joseph's Hermit Purple but it also has the ability to view someone's mental weakness (E.g. Kakyoin's loneliness and Polnareff's want for revenge), with this information DIO can manipulate people.

Heaven Ascension DIO[]

In one reality where he defeated the Joestar Group, Dio was able to carry out his agenda to create a heaven on Earth by transcending himself into a god-like state while using the power of his evolved Stand to subjugate the world. But upon meeting Funny Valentine, Dio learns of the multiverse and decides to summon the Joestar bloodline and their allies from time and space to defeat them while taking the Saint Corpse to further increase his power and extend his dominion. Heaven Ascension DIO has all the prime universe Dio's abilities with additional abilities that include, teleportation, time/space travel, dimensional travel, instant regeneration, mind control, and lightning bolts.

The World Over Heaven[]

  • A Time Stop (How long DIO can stop time for is unknown).
  • Reality Warping: Allows DIO to rewrite virtually anything in time. The potential extent of this ability appears to be limitless, as this power can be used to rewrite the existence of anything he wants (except for his Stand's range), steal/absorb souls and use them as slaves, heal himself, resurrect the dead and completely negate almost any defense that the series has to offer (As he has shown when he overwrote the abilities of Tusk Act 4 and Gold Experience Requiem)
    • However, this power is eventually revealed to suffer from a major limitation; It can only be initiated through The World Over Heaven's fists, meaning that the Stand would have to punch something in order to rewrite it (Though it has been shown that DIO can create mysterious gas-like entities that can move and anything that they touch can be reality warped by DIO).

Ultimate Life Form DIO (Jorge Joestar)[]

  • Has all the previous abilities of the original canon Dio Brando.
  • The Ultimate Life Form: Gained from drinking Kars' blood, DIO has become an Ultimate Life Form like Kars, but not to the degree like him. He gains an increase in strength and heavily increased regeneration abilities. He hasn't shown the abilities of Ultimate Kars (Adaptation, Reactive Evolution, and Power Mimicry).
  • Soul Splitting: DIO can split a piece of his own soul out of his body and place it inside of another individual. When his soul is inserted, it will begin to take over their body until they become Dio himself, both physically and mentally. This was how he created his double for Part III: Stardust Crusaders with Giorno's body.

Stand: The World Ultimate[]

  • The World Ultimate: The World ultimate is a large, yellow hfouumanoid Stand with cog designs on its fists and air tanks on the back of its body. It uses melee attacks. It is also acausal, as seen by completely ignoring the effects of Gold Experience Requiem and strangling it.
  • Time Stop: The World Ultimate's main ability is to stop time, allowing itself and DIO to act within the duration of stopped time for up to an hour.

The Passion[]

  • The Passion: The Passion is actually Johnathan Joestar's stand that DIO has access to thanks to taking over Johnathan's body. It originally appears as a secondary ability as a crown of thorns on DIO's head. Once Kars takes out The World Ultimate's Stand Disc and destroys it, The Passion makes its full appearance as a Stand. It looks similar to the biblical icon, Jesus Christ, and has the same crown of thorns DIO originally had on his head.
  • Bloodline Precognition: With The Passion, DIO is able to look into the detailed future of himself and anyone in his (The Joestar) bloodline. It is unknown how far into the future he can look into, but it allows him to plan for anything and everything that could pose as an issue to him and change the future in any way he desires. This was how he got past his original fated death in Part III: Stardust Crusaders and how he knew when to set his plan into action.


  • Broke a steel spear in half with one hand.
    • Has been stated that he became several times stronger after this.
  • Caught Dire's attack, Dire is able to move so fast that he created after images (At least 200 mph).
  • Dio's speed has been compared to a cheetah in the series (A cheetah's top speed is 75 mph).
  • Can react to Jonathan who can move faster the Tarkus who is faster than the eye can track.
  • Survived being bisected and decapitated while falling down a steep and tall cliff.
  • Survived a massive ship explosion when he was only a head.
  • Can lift over his head, drop and punch a steamroller with ease.
  • Can deflect Kakyoin's Emerald Splash with his bare hands
  • His stand can stop time for more nine seconds with a universal range (The stronger he gets and the more he fights the time stop's length increases) being able to stop a new universe being created (A speculation taken from Jotaro stopping time from preventing the universe being reborn into DIO's ideal World in Stone Ocean).
  • His stand is slightly faster and stronger than Jotaro's Star Platinum's Faster-Than-Light speed and diamond-breaking punch making his stand easily around Faster-Than-Light.
  • Discovered the existence of Made in Heaven so that Pucci could manifest it.
  • It appears he can react at Faster-Than-Light speeds himself without the use of his Stand.
  • Took a barrage of Star Platinum's punches (One even straight to the skull) and survived feeling nauseous and only strong enough to crawl around.
  • Can handle several Hamon users at a time and even prevent Hamon from touching him being able to freeze a Hamon user's bloodstream to prevent them from using it.
  • Technically killed Part 1 protagonist Jonathan Joestar and Part 2 protagonist Joseph Joestar in Part 3.
  • Killed: Noriaki Kakyoin (In approx. less than 2 minutes), Dire In about five seconds or so by freezing him and breaking him apart), nearly killed Hamon Master Will A. Zeppeli with one move.
  • Heaven Ascension DIO erased every Funny Valentine across the entire multiverse from existence.
  • Heaven Ascension DIO killed all of the protagonists and their teammates aside from Jotaro Kujo.
  • Heaven Ascension DIO nullified Diavolo's time loop of death from Gold Experience Requiem.
  • Ultimate Life Form DIO was able to reduce Ultimate Life Form Kars to a puddle of gore per attack, though Kars would regenerate from it (In Jorge Joestar, Kars flipped Britain).


  • Extremely arrogant & cocky, he prefers to humiliate an opponent and feel superior rather than simply finish them off quickly and efficiently.
    • Though a majority of his plans involve making the Joestar line suffer, Dio underestimated them and actually assured his own defeat by them. The best example would be his rivalry with Jonathan Joestar, having been defeated by him three times despite learning from their first bout how powerful Jonathan can get if pushed enough.
    • Despite knowing how dangerous Jotaro was, he still toyed with him, even after Star Platinum unlocked its time stop ability.
  • Dio has said that his occasional outburst of anger is one of his biggest weakness, making him act irrationally and more often than not ruining his plans.
  • All damage dealt to The World transfers to Dio.
  • Weak to Sunlight and Hamon based attacks which can disintegrate him in seconds.
  • Heaven Ascension DIO's ability to rewrite reality is dependant on The World Over Heaven's arms being able to hit the target if its arms are destroyed then DIO can't rewrite reality.
  • The Passion can only predict the future of the Joestar's and DIO's future, no-one else's.
