Valentine's Subordinates (ヴァレンタイン の 部下, Varentain no Buka)[a] mainly consist of Stand users following the orders of President Funny Valentine and are the primary antagonistic force of Steel Ball Run, constantly appearing to confront Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppeli.
In his search for the Saint's Corpse, President Funny Valentine has hired an assorted array of men to watch the Steel Ball Run and take the Corpse Parts from any participant who'd have the luck and courage to acquire one.
They primarily watch the race from afar and bide their time until their targets, typically Gyro Zeppeli and Johnny Joestar, are vulnerable. Although their first goal is to seize the Corpse Parts from the duo's corpses, they can perform other tasks that will contribute to Valentine's goal, such as informing him of any remaining locations. Most of Valentine's agents are assassins. However, a handful of them are responsible for his protection, including Mike O. and Blackmore. Valentine's agents seldom work as a group and seem to follow his orders directly, only occasionally cooperating.
Despite working for Valentine, they each have a wide range of motivations, from loyalty to Valentine to monetary gain, though not all of them go explored.
