Doctor Wu (ドクター・ウー, Dokutā Ū) is the Stand of Dr. Wu Tomoki, featured in the eighth part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, JoJolion. It is a pure ability Stand that allows Dr. Wu to decompose himself into small particles.
Doctor Wu is an ability-type Stand that only manifests itself within its user as a supernatural ability and thus has no real appearance of its own.
Doctor Wu grants Tomoki a useful ability that makes him both elusive and dangerous, as the particles he turns into can bypass the defense of his foes and are difficult to attack. On the other hand, this same granular state limits his ability to act and makes him vulnerable to new objects, such as being stuck.
Doctor Wu allows Wu Tomoki to break apart his body into small independently controlled stones, then reconstruct himself. The particles themselves have no power besides floating around with the wind.
His gravel form seems to induce an allergic reaction in those he attacks if inhaled, as he is essentially a foreign body. He can also add other substances to his gravel form, such as ground-up sleeping pills, which he uses to try to subdue Mitsuba Higashikata and Yasuho Hirose.
Body & Stand Manipulation
When Wu transforms into gravel, he can invade someone's body by entering through their bodily orifices. He fuses with body parts such as bones, ligaments and tendons. However, it seems the ability to parasitize someone is tied to a particular rock acting as a beacon for the rest of the gravel and paralyzing its victim at the same time. If Wu manages to enter a person's body, he can take control of their movements, as well as control their Stand to some degree. An example of this would be taking control of Mitsuba's body, as well as her Stand ability, Awaking III Leaves. During his invasion of Mitsuba's body, Wu made Mitsuba send out several arrows from her Stand ability.
- The name of the Stand was first hinted at the Hirohiko Araki JoJo Exhibition: Ripples of Adventure where early design artwork of Wu Tomoki also identifies him by the name Doctor Wu (ドクターウー, Dokutā Ū).
