You wretched hicks! I'm going to stand at the apex of society! (くそ田舎者どもッ! オレは必ず社会の頂点に立ってみせる!)[2]
ASBR Diego title call.png

Diego Brando (ディエゴ・ブランドー, Diego Burandō) was confirmed as a playable character alongside Robert E. O. Speedwagon, Mariah, and Pet Shop during the Street Date trailer.[1]

His moveset is similar to that of his Eyes of Heaven appearance, with modifications made and new aspects added to better fit him in with All-Star Battle R's different style of gameplay.

In the English version of All-Star Battle R, the name of Diego's Stand, Scary Monsters, is localized as "Frightening Monsters", the same name used in Eyes of Heaven.

As Diego's voice actor in Eyes of Heaven, Takehito Koyasu reprises his role in this game as well. As with the majority of the game's roster, voice lines for Diego were either added or re-recorded.

Gameplay

Diego has 920 health and uses the both the Mounted (騎乗, Kijō) and Stand (スタンド, Sutando) Battle Styles. The Mounted Battle Style allows Diego to freely mount and dismount his horse, Silver Bullet, dynamically changing his moveset in the process. Unlike most other characters with the Stand Battle Style, Diego uses his Stand, Scary Monsters, in a variety of attacks that either transform parts of his body into those of a dinosaur's or summon dinosaurs to attack his foes. His Heart Heat Attack allows him to fully transform into a dinosaur, gaining an entirely-new moveset for the duration of the transformation.

As a Steel Ball Run character, three parts of the Saint's Corpse will slowly appear on the ground as Diego fights. He can pick up these parts to receive progressively better blessings that can boost his performance in combat. If Diego battles Johnny Joestar, Gyro Zeppeli, Parallel World Diego, Funny Valentine, or another Diego, both combatants will have to fight over the same three parts.

Style/Specials/Etc. [Unmounted] (スタイル/特殊技/その他)
Mounting (騎乗切り替え)
ASBS.png ON GROUND

Diego can summon his horse, Silver Bullet, to mount it, or dismount and send it away, shifting his movement and available abilities. Silver Bullet improves his basic mobility, attack range, and power. However, he loses the ability to Stylish Guard and will be forcibly dismounted if he is hit by a move that hard knockdowns.
If the Style input (ASBS.png) is chained from normals while unmounted, 'Quick Mount' is triggered at the cost of Heart Heat, whereby Diego mounts Silver Bullet much faster, and the act of flipping onto his horse can knock the opponent into the air. This provides an easy and quicker method of mounting as well as transitioning Diego's unmounted combo into a mounted one.

My speed is supreme. (「スピード能力」はオレの方が上だ)
ASBDPad6.png + ASBM.png ON GROUND
Diego shifts forward and delivers a stabbing claw strike. A command normal that can chain into Diego's skills.

Attack type: High
Damage: 30
Startup frames: 15

You hesitated! (躊躇(ちゅうちょ)したなッ!)
ASBDPad6.png + ASBH.png ON GROUND

Diego performs a spin while moving a distance forward and unleashes a double-handed claw slash, knocking the opponent to the ground. This deals significant Guard damage and allows Diego to pass through the opponent to their other side. (Comboable)

Attack type: High
Damage: 44
Startup frames: 23

KUAAAAAAAAAA (クアアアアァアアアアアアアーーー)
ASBDPad3.png + ASBH.png ON GROUND
Diego turns around as he whips his dinosaur tail upwards, launching the opponent into the air. This is a command normal that can chain into Diego's skills.

Attack type: Low
Damage: 15
Startup frames: 27

Dinosaur Kinetic Vision (恐竜の『動体視力』)
ASBDPad1.png/ASBDPad2.png/ASBDPad3.png then ASBDPad7.png/ASBDPad8.png/ASBDPad9.png (Unmounted) ON GROUND
A super jump skill. Diego bounds higher into the air than normal, covering a greater distance when leaping forward or backwards. This special can be used to better evade attacks, extend time for air-based maneuvers, or quickly cancel normal attacks for both offensive and defensive purposes.
Aerial Chain Beat (空中チェーンビート)
ASBL.png or ASBM.png or ASBH.png IN AIR OK
While in mid-air, Diego can chain his aerial normal attacks together in order of increasing power, much like any other character could on the ground. This ability synergizes with "Dinosaur Kinetic Vision", allowing Diego to freely continue aerial combos canceled from his Super Jump with said normal attacks.
Holy Corpse (聖なる遺体)
ASBDPad1.png/ASBDPad2.png/ASBDPad3.png while near Corpse Part ON GROUND
Diego receives a new blessing for every Holy Corpse Part he holds, but if successfully knocked down, drops the part and loses said blessing.
  1. Diego gains access to the follow-up skill "Are you ready?!"
  2. All of Diego's skills are enhanced in some form or another, mainly boosting their damage.
  3. The rate at which Diego's Heart Heat Gauge fills is increased.
Rumble Mode (ゴゴゴモード)
Activates below 30% health
This mode is automatically activated once Diego falls below 30% health. It increases his attack power, as well as the rate at which the Heart Heat Gauge rises, while also decreasing the rate at which the Guard Gauge drops.
Skills [Unmounted] (コマンド技)
Gouge (『えぐり出す』)
ASBDPad2.pngASBDPad3.pngASBDPad6.png + ASBL.png/ASBM.png/ASBH.png ON GROUND

Diego lunges forward off the ground and unleashes a barrage of alternating claw slashes before landing. If used while Mounted, this seamlessly transitions him into a Dismounted state as he leaps from atop Silver Bullet. The amount of hits and damage as well as how far Diego moves forward while leaping increases in ASBL.pngASBM.pngASBH.png order, inversely affecting his recovery speed afterward. (Flash Cancel comboable)
If Diego holds two Corpse Parts, he becomes invulnerable during this skill's start-up, allowing the attack to function as a reversal.

Attack type: High
Damage: ASBL.png 30 / ASBM.png 35 / ASBH.png 40

Are you ready?! (覚悟は出来てるかァーーーーーーッ)
(During "Gouge") ASBL.png/ASBM.png/ASBH.png (requires at least one Corpse Part) ON GROUND

Diego follows up on his attack by unleashing a powerful 3-hit combo of claw slashes, sending the opponent flying with the final two-handed strike. The damage dealt by the attack increases in ASBL.pngASBM.pngASBH.png order, inversely affecting Diego's recovery speed afterward. (Flash Cancel comboable)
If Diego holds two Corpse Parts, this attack inflicts more damage.

Attack type: High
Damage: ASBL.png 29 (1 part) 47 (2 parts) / ASBM.png 33 (1 part) 61 (2 parts) / ASBH.png 36 (1 part) 75 (2 parts)

Useless, useless! (無駄だ無駄ァァァッ)
ASBDPad6.pngASBDPad2.pngASBDPad3.png + ASBL.png/ASBM.png/ASBH.png ON GROUND IN AIR OK

Diego quickly somersaults while sprouting his dinosaur tail and whipping it downward to bounce the opponent off the ground. If used while Mounted, this seamlessly transitions him into a Dismounted state as he leaps from atop Silver Bullet, and the skill executes much faster. However, if the attack is blocked when used from Mounted Mode, he will recoil from the attack and be left vulnerable as he falls. Diego is invulnerable until after he leaves the ground, allowing the attack to function as a reversal. The amount of damage dealt and how far Diego moves while leaping increases in ASBL.pngASBM.pngASBH.png order, inversely affecting his recovery speed afterward. (Flash Cancel comboable)
If Diego holds two Corpse Parts, his invulnerability during this skill's start-up is extended to right before the tail attack begins.

Against human players, the ASBH.png variation of this attack can easily bypass blocking due to Diego having changed to their other side the instant before the attack is released (known as a "cross-up").

Attack type: Middle
Damage: ASBL.png 50 / ASBM.png 55 / ASBH.png 60

Dinosaurs! (恐竜ども!)
ASBDPad2.pngASBDPad1.pngASBDPad4.png + ASBL.png/ASBM.png/ASBH.png ON GROUND

Diego calls forth small dinosaurs that remain stationary for a brief period, then charge forward to bite at the opponent multiple times. The dinosaurs will travel the length of the area if allowed, and function as projectiles. The attack button inputted increases the number of dinosaurs summoned, with Light (ASBL.png) summoning one, Medium (ASBM.png) two, and Heavy (ASBH.png) three; However, Diego's recovery speed afterward is inversely affected. (Comboable)
If Diego holds two Corpse Parts, the dinosaurs inflict more damage.

Attack type: High
Damage: 30 per dinosaur (1 part) / 36 per dinosaur (2 parts)

Throw (投げ技)
I'll cut you open and scoop everything out! (切ってえぐり取るッ!!)
2 ATK buttons at close range or ASBT.png (ASBDPad4.png to back-throw) ON GROUND
Diego picks his opponent up by their neck with one hand, then stabs his sharpened claws into their body with the other, and finally slashes outward to throw them away.

Attack type: Throw
Damage: 110

Heart Heat Attack / Great Heat Attack (HHA / GHA)
Scary Monsters! (スケアリー モンスターズ)
ASBDPad2.pngASBDPad3.pngASBDPad6.png + 2 ATK Buttons ON GROUND

Diego fully transforms into his Utahraptor form, known as Dinosaur Form. The stock of Heart Heat spent becomes a draining timer, canceling the ability upon depleting. Upon deactivation of Dinosaur Form, Diego will quickly revert with a jump, changing back to human form in mid-air and leaving him vulnerable.

Dinosaur Diego gains a new set of normal attacks and skills, drastically improving his overall damage output and range. He gains passive Super Armor at all times and cannot be staggered, knocked down, or launched, allowing him to power through any attack. Most prominently, Diego becomes immune to most opposing HHA and GHA; Heat Attacks that only continue upon connecting with a first hit will simply fail against Dinosaur Diego, and he will bypass any counters and counter-type Heat Attacks and strike the opponent without triggering them.

However, Dinosaur Diego is unable to guard, taunt, Flash Cancel, Stylish Evade, or Stylish Guard, leaving him little in the way of defending himself from incoming damage, and he can still be KO'd. Interestingly, when struck by an HHA and GHA, Guard damage (damage that would have been dealt to Diego's Guard Gauge upon blocking) is converted and added to the incoming attack's normal damage. This means Heat Attacks that would deal higher Guard damage, such as Gyro's GHA, still deal significant damage to Dinosaur Diego even if they would technically 'fail'. HHA that continue executing without an initial hit will still deal full damage to him as well, assuming he cannot interrupt the attack.

As HHA can be universally canceled into from most attacks including skills, this gives Diego a means to extend combos by chaining into its activation, instantly canceling an attack not unlike a Flash Cancel and allowing him to continue his offense into Dinosaur Form.

Scary Monsters! Gyaaaaaas! And back! (スケアリー モンスターズ ギャアァアアアアアアース! 戻る)
This is the "line" to the world that I'm going to inherit! (このオレがッ!! 手に入れるこの世界への「線」だッ!!)
ASBDPad2.pngASBDPad3.pngASBDPad6.png + 3 ATK Buttons, or ASBG.png ON GROUND

Diego's GHA can only be performed while unmounted, and he will automatically dismount from Silver Bullet when used while mounted; He cannot perform this GHA while in Dinosaur Form.

Diego partially transforms, readies his claws, lets out a battle cry, and charges forward in a melee strike. If the attack connects, he sics three small dinosaurs on the opponent that lunge and bite at them. Sprinting in after them, he leaps and delivers a series of relentless claw-handed blows to his opponent's body. Finishing the assault, Diego bears his fangs and screams his murderous intent, before unleashing a powerful upwards chop to cleave them up the middle.

Attack type: High
Damage: 360 / 431 / 540 (depending on HH gauge)

WRYYYYY! Dinosaurs! I'll kill you! Ushaaaah! I'm the winner! (WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY(ウリィィィィィィィィィィィィィィィ) 恐竜ども! ブッ殺してやるッ!! ウシャアアアァーーーーッ 勝ったのはオレの方だ!!)

Music

Diego's theme is ASBR Music.png Hungry! (『飢えた者』!, "Uetamono"!), and can be unlocked in-game by calling 3 Assists in a single round as Johnny Joestar in All-Star Battle Mode's Johnny vs. Diego Normal Battle.

Its name is taken from Johnny Joestar's description of Diego as compared to Gyro Zeppeli in Chapter 32 of Steel Ball Run.
