The Pillar Man, Santana, Part 8 (「柱の男・サンタナ」 その⑧, 'Hashira no Otoko Santana' Sono 8), originally The End of a Proud Man! (誇り高き男の最後!, Hokori Tataki Otoko no Saigo!) in the WSJ and tankobon releases, is the seventeenth chapter of Battle Tendency and the sixty-first chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.


With the sun shining on Santana, he begins to crumble. As Stroheim is congratulated by Joseph, Santana enters his body through his stubbed leg to escape the sun. Desperate to kill Santana, however, Stroheim prepares to blow both of them up with a grenade and pulls its pin. Before he does so, Stroheim tells Joseph that there are other Pillar Men and that Stroheim's division was sent to awaken Santana to discover another weakness besides the sun. Stroheim tells Joseph to go to Rome where he will meet someone very important. The grenade explodes, leaving Joseph with more questions than answers.

Santana, exposed to the sun, makes a last ditch effort to get to a nearby well, tackling Joseph into it, too. This proves futile, as the time is noon and the sun is shining directly above the well. The light, reflected in the water's surface, hits Santana from both sides and petrifies him.
