JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - Episode 3 (OVA)
Silver Chariot and Strength (ADVENTURE3 銀の戦車&力 Adventure 3 Shirubā Chariottsu ando Sutorengusu) is the third episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OVA. It adapts Chapter 124 through Chapter 127, along with Chapter 130 through Chapter 133 of the manga.
The private jet carrying Jotaro and his companions to Egypt suddenly bursts into flames. The plane is above the ocean and the crew is forced to perform an emergency water landing. The group now wait for a rescue party on their lifeboat and incidentally cross path with a large freighter.
The group boards the boat but finds no crew inside. However, Joseph feels that someone is following them. The heroes do find a orangutan in a cage and guess that someone must be taking care of him. Worryingly, the boat activates by itself and the mysterious captain of the boat still eludes the heroes. The group hears music and follow it, and eventually find a man having a feast and declaring that he's acquainted with DIO.
The man reveals his Stand Silver Chariot, presents himself as Jean Pierre Polnareff, and picks a fight with Avdol and his Magician's Red. After an exchange of boasts, Polnareff leads the heroes toward the upper deck to have a fight fair. Although Silver Chariot's speed is formidable and its armor protects it from the fire, Avdol guides his flames under the deck to perform an attack from below. Polnareff recognizes his defeat, pushing the heroes to spare him.
Suddenly, the ship comes alive and kills the pilots. The captain of the boat reveals himself as the ape from earlier, who manages to bind the entire group. Thankfully, Silver Chariot slices the orangutan in two. The freighter thus collapses and the group manage to retrieve a small boat. Polnareff eventually reveals that he's after the man who killed his sister Sherry, said man having two left hands. Learning that DIO does know the assassin, Polnareff figures that he'll tag along the heroes to find DIO again. Meanwhile, Enya reports her first failures but is confident that her son J. Geil's Stand, the Hanged Man, will prevail against the Joestar Group.
|Episode 3 (OVA): Silver Chariot and Strength|
- The lead-up to the encounter with Strength is now the plane crash and not the Impostor Captain Tennille sabotaging their boat.
- Instead of being introduced in Hong Kong, Polnareff appears on the ship with Forever.
- Forever is sliced in half by Silver Chariot, instead of being killed by Star Platinum's punch barrage.
- In the flashback about Sherry's death, her friend is shown being fully decapitated by Hanged Man instead of just being cut in the chest like in the manga.
- This creates a plot hole since this means that there was no one to inform Polnareff about J. Geil's rain shield and his two right hands.
- DIO is shown in Polnareff's flashback without his parrot nor is he shown using Jonathan's Stand with a crystal ball.
