These boxes...! This enemy's ability...! It's homing in on me!

Chocolate Disco (チョコレート・ディスコ Chokorēto Disuko) is the Stand of D-I-S-C-O, featured in Steel Ball Run.

Chocolate Disco manifests itself as an armband on D-I-S-C-O's forearm, which has the ability to divide the nearby environment into a grid and reposition anyone caught in the grid at will.

Appearance

Chocolate Disco appears in the form of an armband with a grid pattern of eight columns of pushable keys, on which coordinates are indicated with letters and numbers.

Abilities

Chocolate Disco functions as a tool that grants D-I-S-C-O great control over flying objects in a large zone. As a result, Gyro Zeppeli is at a disadvantage against him with his Steel Balls.

However, its tool-like nature and lack of any way to directly harm someone means that D-I-S-C-O is powerless at close range and relies on using miscellaneous objects he keeps on him to attack.

The gauntlet and grid are yellow-brownish in the colored manga.

Repositioning

When D-I-S-C-O activates Chocolate Disco, a grid with the rows labeled as letters and columns labeled as numbers appear from his feet, covering about twenty feet in front of him.[2]

By pressing one or several buttons on the armband, any flying projectile or object can be instantly transported to the corresponding area(s) (e.g. by pressing F5 on the armband, an object is teleported onto the F5 space), falling down.[2]

D-I-S-C-O typically makes various harmful objects like nails or acid fall down on his target and also defends himself from projectiles by teleporting them away from him and into the assailant.[2]

The weakness of this ability is that D-I-S-C-O must correctly assert in which coordinates he wants to teleport the flying objects to attack. If he misses, he becomes defenseless at close range.[3]
