D-I-S-C-O  (ディ・ス・コ Di-su-ko) is a minor antagonist featured in the seventh part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Steel Ball Run, specifically in the "Chocolate Disco" story arc. D-I-S-C-O is the last of the assassins sent by Valentine.[1] He confronts Gyro, separating him from an injured Johnny, near Independence Hall, Philadelphia. He is a Stand User, wielding the gauntlet-like Chocolate Disco.

Appearance

D-I-S-C-O is a tall slim man, with medium-length messy, curly dark hair with a large, rectangular hair clip/accessory sitting on the left side of his head. Shaved beard and mustache can be spotted around his face as well as blue eyes.

He wears a long coat similar to ones worn by the police officers from the 18th century; wearing his Stand Chocolate Disco like an armband on his left forearm as well as wearing a handcuff for a belt.

Personality

D-I-S-C-O has a rather expressionless face and personality. He is very quiet, speaking only to reveal his Stand's name.

It is unknown which kind of relationship he might have with the President: he might be one of his loyal Stand users, though Gyro Zeppeli believes him to know nothing about Valentine's plan.

History

D-I-S-C-O is sent to fight Gyro

In Philadelphia, as soon as the president manages to find the head of the corpse, he decides to take the last missing part from Diego Brando: the left eye. In order to do so, he ambushes Johnny Joestar and tricks Diego and Wekapipo using his Stand's power. While Valentine confronts them, D-I-S-C-O is sent to take care of Gyro Zeppeli in order to prevent him from helping Johnny and the others.

As Gyro reaches a corner of a building, Valentine and D-I-S-C-O surround him from both sides. Gyro spots D-I-S-C-O but hears gunshots; wanting to help Johnny, Gyro tells D-I-S-C-O to stand still and the agent complies, before activating his ability as soon as Gyro turns his head. With his Stand Chocolate Disco, D-I-S-C-O makes a grid appear on the ground. While Gyro is shocked to glimpse Wekapipo hiding near his horses, Gyro must focus on the enemy. He throws a Steel Ball at D-I-S-C-O, but it is then teleported above him and Gyro is hit by his own Ball. Gyro tries to run towards D-I-S-C-O, but the agent makes nails fall on Gyro, wounding his leg.

D-I-S-C-O then takes bottles of acid out of his pocket, intending to douse Gyro with the acid. Worried, Gyro throws his Steel Balls, but D-I-S-C-O teleports them again. However, this time, the Ball misses Gyro. Surprised, D-I-S-C-O attacks again but misses too with his nails and acid. Suddenly, a hand with a Steel Ball appears near him. Gyro reveals that he has created a zone of high pressure that refracts the light and prevents D-I-S-C-O from knowing Gyro's location. Desperate, D-I-S-C-O takes out a gun but the Neapolitan quickly knocks out the agent.

Trivia

  • D-I-S-C-O's name was originally spelled as Disco (ディスコ Disuko) in the Ultra Jump serialisation, his name was changed in the tankobon release.
  • In the song "Chocolate Disco" by Perfume, the title is repeated many times in the lyrics; it is for this reason that Araki decided that D-I-S-C-O would not speak any more than necessary.[2]
