Baby Face (story arc)
Baby Face (ベイビィ・フェイス, Beibī Feisu) is the twelfth story arc in Vento Aureo. It narrates the battle between Giorno and Baby Face, a homunculus which can decompose itself into cubes, as Baby Face tries to kidnap Trish.
Melone, a member of La Squadra Esecuzioni, arrives at the scene of Pesci and Prosciutto's deaths and retrieves a sample of Bucciarati's DNA. Using this and his Stand Baby Face, Melone "impregnates" a hot-headed young woman on board the train in order to "birth" a remote Stand that will pursue Bucciarati. This remote Stand (also called Baby Face) quickly grows to full size, killing its mother and catching up to the gang using Melone's motorcycle.
The gang is in the process of stealing a car when Baby Face catches up to them. Capturing both Trish and Bucciarati, Baby Face steals a piece of Giorno's throat, rendering him unable to call to the rest of the gang for help. However, Giorno realizes that Gold Experience and Baby Face are opposites: Gold Experience creates life while Baby Face takes it away. This inspires Giorno to transform objects into human body parts to heal himself.
After a tense give-and-take between the two, Baby Face tires of following Melone's advice and tries to attack his enemy head on, allowing Giorno to easily defeat it; he then turns the Stand's corpse into a snake, which returns to and kills Melone.
