Evil Incarnate DIO (邪悪の化身ディオ, Ja'aku no Keshin DIO) or Shadow DIO in the English localization, appears as a playable character in the Capcom games. He was part of the original roster in JoJo's Venture as a secret unlockable character.

Command List and Gameplay

In the game where Active Stands are prevalent, Shadow DIO is a passive Stand user. He can deal a lot of damage with full offensive attacks without an Active Stand via a solid amount of frame-traps and pseudo-disjointed pokes with his silhouette-version of The World, even though he lacks the more defensive and utility-type traits of having an active Stand. His Stand attacks are effective as surprises, and capable of juggling and/or short bread-and-butter combo finishers. Combined with his own attacks, he deals a lot of damage in a short time, more so within The World, when he stops time.

In Super Story Mode on the PS1 version, after finishing Super Story Mode once, four extra stages are unlocked adapting various characters' encounters with DIO.

With the tremendous power of his Stand, The World, DIO put an end to the Joestar bloodline. Along with the influence of his Stand, DIO's twisted and evil life continued on.


Descendants of Jonathan... Destruction was the only path on which fate could lead you. He who conquerors the world yields to nothing. Not even fear. I have destroyed the Joestar bloodline, and in doing so, have eliminated the only reason to fear! Ha ha ha ha!
