Not all of JoJo’s bizarre adventure stalls throw punches or trigger explosions. Some challenge the enemy in a risky game of chance.
JoJo’s bizarre adventure ‘combat system has come a long way since the early days of Ghost blood and the concept of hamon versus vampires. Starting with Stardust Crusaders, the system went to the pits. While some of them are melee warriors such as Star Platinum or Crazy Diamond, others are much more difficult in combat.
Many other booths use tricky effects like shrinking people or teleporting, and a few in particular are like game show hosts, giving this already new combat system a unique twist. Four particular stands in Jojo are known to oversee the games that unfold between the users of these booths and their enemies – and these contests aren’t always fair.
Osiris supervised a game of high stakes poker against Jotaro Kujo
Jotaro Kujo and his allies met Daniel J. D’Arby in a cantina in Cairo, Egypt, where the latter challenged his enemies to a few games of chance. The arbiter would be his Stand, a humanoid named Osiris who has no mercy. Anyone who loses a game against Daniel will have their soul ripped from their body and stored as a poker chip, and Daniel proudly displayed his collection of captured souls to Jotaro’s party. Joseph and Polnareff both lost when Daniel cheated on them – Osiris only cares about who recognizes defeat in their heart, not who plays by the rules.
Then Jotaro played poker against Daniel, kept his cool and bluffed his way to victory, betting his mother’s soul against information about DIO. Daniel, who wasn’t used to being on the defensive, broke under the pressure. Osiris felt defeat in his owner’s heart, declaring Jotaro the victor before freeing all the captured souls.
Atum turns Terrence’s victims into dolls
Terrence / Telence D’Arby was the reverse of his brother Daniel in JoJo’s bizarre adventure, using games of skill and mind rather than cheating to win and even beating Kakyoin Noriaki in an off-score F-Zero Game. He then played against Jotaro Kujo in a baseball game that Terrence’s Stand, Atum, was watching.
Atum, a humanoid stand like Osiris, also claims the souls of those who lose to its user. In this case, Terrence’s victims are turned into dolls in a vast collection, and Jotaro saw Kakyoin’s doll with his own eyes before tackling Terrence himself. Atum and his user were defeated when Jotaro cleverly used Joseph’s purple hermit stand to manipulate his controller and dodge Terrence’s mind reading, thus disabling his game. Terrence lost and Kakyoin’s soul was finally freed. of Atum’s hold.
Boy II Man demands a game from Janken
In Jojo’s bizarre adventure: the diamond is unbreakable, Kishibe Rohan, the brilliant associate of Josuke’s mangaka, ran into a boy named Oyanagi Ken, who asked for a set of Janken (rock-paper-scissors). Oyanagi’s booth Boy II Man is yet another soul-stealing game show host. He can steal a piece of the opponent’s soul every time he loses a throw against Oyanagi, until there is nothing left.
Rohan faced Oyanagi and won two games, sparing him the wrath of Boy II Man – but the latter then started playing mind games and won two more throws, claiming two-thirds of Rohan’s soul. . Even his use of Heaven’s Door couldn’t get him out of there, as having a partial soul weakened his Stand. Fortunately, Rohan won the final throw against his crafty opponent and reclaimed his Boy II Man soul.
Marilyn Manson is the ultimate debt collector
The recently released JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean introduced Joestar’s very first heroine, Jolyne Cujoh. She is serving a sentence at Green Dolphin Prison, where more and more fellow inmates are exhibited as users of the booth, including Miraschon, whose booth is called Marilyn Manson. This humanoid is yet another nonviolent Stand that only cares about games and betting.
Miraschon enjoys making fancy bets with her fellow inmates, and it’s not just money that’s at stake. Marilyn Manson can chase the debtor anywhere and collect both her money and her internal organs to sell them. on the black market. Miraschon supervised a baseball throw match between Jolyne and Foo Fighters under the watchful eye of Marilyn Manson. On several occasions, Miraschon almost won the bet and seized the organs of his opponents. In the end, however, Jolyne outsmarted her and Marilyn Manson was powerless to protect Miraschon from a classic beating by Joestar.
