A lost life can never be regained... but if you wish... If you want it badly enough... you'll be able to preserve her memory. Her heart and soul... That is your ability.
DIO, SO Chapter 129: Heavy Weather, Part 5

A DISC (DISC(ディスク) Disuku) is an item conjured and manipulated by Enrico Pucci's Stand, Whitesnake.

Appearance

The DISCs are similar in appearance to compact discs but have the word "DISC" engraved on them in capital letters. A Stand can be seen inside the Stand DISCs while memories can be glanced at in Memory DISCs, although a full examination requires the insertion of the DISC.

Despite their appearance, the DISCs feel rubbery and elastic,[1] instead of like plastic, making them impervious to physical damage. The DISCs are perennial, existing even long after Whitesnake ceases to exist, and are indestructible unless inserted into a dying person, causing the inserted DISC to slowly crumble.

Unlike Stands, an ordinary person can see the DISCs.[2]

Function

There are two main types of DISCs:

Jotaro's DISCs
  • Stand DISC (スタンドのDISC(ディスク) Sutando no Disuku): These DISCs contain the Stand of the person in question. A person with his or her Stand DISC taken from them will collapse into a near-death state. Stand DISCs can be inserted into compatible users, even enabling some such as Emporio to temporarily bypass the one-Stand rule.[3] A Stand DISC may reject an incompatible host (such as Star Platinum's did Jolyne),[4] so Pucci will typically seek out people whose personalities align with the Stand's abilities, such as the suicidal Thunder McQueen being granted Highway to Hell.
  • Memory DISC (記憶DISC(ディスク) Kioku Disuku): These DISCs contain the memories of the person in question. Depending on Pucci's wishes, a Memory DISC can either store the entirety of someone's memory or individual memories.

These DISCs are mainly used to store information and abilities for later use and can be consulted or used by putting the disc inside someone's head.

Pucci is able to create other types of DISCs. By inserting DISCs with information or impossible situations, Pucci can command people to follow his bidding.[5][6] Some DISCs containing a person's sense, like sight, can be extracted.[7]
