—Cameo, Chapter 178: Judgement, Part 5

Cameo (カメオ, Kameo) is a tertiary antagonist featured in the third part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders, specifically the "Judgement" story arc.

He isolates Polnareff from the Joestar Group on a secluded island in the Red Sea while they are there to retrieve Avdol. Cameo is one of DIO's henchmen and a Stand user who wields the genie Stand, Judgement.

Cameo is a cruel man who pretends to be a genie using his Stand, Judgement. He initially takes on the guise of a grateful genie and is lenient, allowing Polnareff to confirm if he wants to make a wish Cameo deems boring and even cancel a wish after confirming it.[2]

Cameo reveals his true nature soon enough after Polnareff wishes to revive Sherry and Avdol. In reality, he is manipulative and callous, toying with people's hearts to kill them with their own deepest desires. He enjoys watching his victims suffer from their own wishes[3] and continues to taunt his enemies even when an unexpected disadvantage arises.[4] He also displays a realist perspective, mocking Polnareff for believing someone could come back to life.[5]

Although arrogant, Cameo is a coward. He flees to avoid any harm if Judgement is overpowered. In person, he goes to great lengths to hide himself so only his Stand can get into any conflict. If threatened, he cries for mercy.[4]



Main article: Judgement

Judgement is a hulking humanoid Stand which is very strong and resilient but also manipulates clay to create fake objects and humans. It fakes being a genie and twists its victim's wishes against them.

Cameo after being burned by Magician's Red

Cameo is one of the mercenaries hired by DIO to kill Jotaro and his party, waiting on the island where Joseph is visiting Avdol's father. Cameo spends the entire fight underground, inside a hole dug by himself, wearing swimming goggles and a breathing straw. He uses his Stand Judgement to make Polnareff believe it to be a genie and express his three wishes. Polnareff asks it to revive Sherry Polnareff and Muhammad Avdol, and so Cameo creates clay-imitations of them who end up attacking Polnareff.[5]

The real Avdol shows up and saves Polnareff from Judgement's imitations, destroying them and finding Cameo's hideout. Much more easy-going than before his "death," Avdol suggests to Polnareff that they should torture him a little, blocking his breathing straw with his finger for a few seconds and laughing, all the while Cameo suffers from the lack of air. Polnareff begins by dropping dirt, a spider, ants, and a lit match down the straw, but Cameo manages to persevere. Avdol then mentions that "Nature is calling" and to "use the time-tested male bonding technique of taking a piss together". The pair end up urinating into his breathing straw, which prompts a terrified Cameo to reveal himself and beg for forgiveness. Avdol refuses and uses Magician's Red to burn him as his fourth and last wish.[4]

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (SFC)

The group encounters Cameo in a very different way portrayed in the manga. In Pakistan, the player finds him on the second floor of a Big Mansion where, after opening a treasure chest, Judgement will appear stating that it will grant the group three wishes. The first wish it grants is to level up the group, which requires fighting three clay dolls of Jotaro. The second wish allows the group to find Hol Horse, though this turns out to be a clay doll as well. The final wish pits Judgement itself against the group with the exchange of DIO's secret as the prize. Once Judgement is defeated, Cameo himself will appear and admit that he does not know anything about DIO, but urges the group to travel to Egypt to find a Stand user who is presumably not working for DIO.


JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (PS1)

Cameo or Kameo in the English localization, appears as a battle in Super Story Mode. Polnareff has to primarily defeat his Stand, Judgement, who is accompanied by two clay-imitations of Avdol and Sherry. When Judgement is defeated, Cameo then surfaces from his hole to be burnt by the real Avdol.

In international releases, instead of urinating into Cameo's breathing pipe, Avdol and Polnareff drop pebbles into it, inflicting a similar but less-humiliating form of torture.

The Magic Lamp (Mini-Game)
(魔法のランプ Mahō no Ranpu)

While crossing the Red Sea, the group stops on an island, where Polnareff comes across a lamp; as he inspects the lamp, he accidentally releases the Stand Judgement hiding within it. Judgement gives Polnareff three wishes; still wary, Polnareff wishes to revive his sister and Avdol. Though the Stand seemingly fulfills his wish, the clay replicas he creates are half-formed; desperate to be completed, they begin feeding on Polnareff. However, a second Avdol appears and burns the clay replica: Avdol had faked his own death in Calcutta, and has now returned to save Polnareff. The battle against Judgement plays out in a similar manner to the Justice battle, albeit with Avdol instead of Jotaro. As clay replicas of Avdol and Sherry attack the player, Judgement floats in the air, often dropping down to attack or reviving destroyed replicas; once Judgement's health is depleted, the mini-game ends. After the battle, Judgement runs away. Avdol and Polnareff find a pipe sticking out of the ground; at Avdol's suggestion, the two urinate into the pipe until the user, Cameo, surrenders. Magician's Red then burns him, putting him out of commission.
Secret Factor: My third wish is to make you cry out in regret! (第3の願いは「後悔の泣き声」だッ!)
