Clash! Chomp! Rip his throat to shreeeeds!!

Clash (クラッシュ, Kurasshu) is the Stand of Squalo, featured in the fifth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Vento Aureo.

Taking a form similar to a shark, it can teleport between bodies of water or other liquids in order to attack quickly and viciously; it can also grow or shrink to suit its current environment.

Clash appears as a mechanical shark-like being with two eyes on the sides of its head and a single large eye in the middle. Its size varies depending on the size of the body of liquid it occupies.

Its design is based on ancient, armor-plated fish,[2] most likely those of the class Placodermi and more specifically the fish Dunkleosteus.

Color Schemes

Eyes(Dark Gray lateral eyes, red medial eye)


Clash is a long-distance Stand that can be precisely manipulated by Squalo from afar. Although fragile, Clash has the ability to appear inside any mass of liquid and rip off body parts of its target, making it a Stand appropriate for deadly ambushes.

Liquid Warp

Clash is a fish Stand, thus it must stay inside liquids to persist and is only able to make brief leaps out of liquid to attack.

However, it can instantly teleport into any body of liquid of a minimal size near the one it is occupying at the moment.[3] Liquids it has occupied include hot soup, wine,[3] fresh or seawater, and even someone's tears.[4] Clash can also sink inside and emerge out bodies of liquid as if they have depth despite being extremely shallow, as well as take anything or anyone along with it when transferring between liquids. Thus it could drag Giorno away through a puddle of water from a leaking pipe.[5]

It cannot, however, teleport into sealed bodies of liquid[6] or teleport more than 2 or 3 meters away from its current position according to Narancia.[7] Moreover, the warping process can become slower if Clash is hurt.[7]

It also takes a practical size depending on the liquid that it occupies:[6] when in a wine glass, it is about the size of a small fish[3] but appears to be larger than a canoe when swimming in one of Venice's canals.[4] It seems to be dependent on how much surface the water is covering, as Clash can appear as big as a cat when inside a shallow puddle.[5]

GioGio's Bizarre Adventure

A 3D model for Clash is present in GioGio's Bizarre Adventure, however, it ultimately went unused.



  • Araki decided to make its abilities based on liquids because it appears in Venice, which is known as the City of Water.[2]
  • Squalo/Clash's theme in the anime seems to be inspired by the Jaws theme. Jaws is also Araki's 2nd favorite horror movie.[8][9]
