Doobie (怪人ドゥービー Kaijin Dūbī, lit. "Doobie, the Phantom") is a minor antagonist featured in the first part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Phantom Blood.

Doobie is a monstrous Zombie created by Dio Brando with several venomous snakes emerging out of his head. He briefly fights Jonathan Joestar after attempting to eat Poco's Sister.

Appearance

Doobie is a large, muscular zombie who is bald and has fangs and claws. He wears a gunny sack on his head as a mask to hide the multiple snakes lurking in his face. The mask has one hole on the left side. Additionally, he wears a deerstalker cap and a scarf. His body is adorned with various jewelry and armor including a necklace, bracelets, wristbands, shoulder pads, and cloth wrapped around his ankles.

True face

His chest and thighs are left exposed, while an armored plate covers his stomach. Below it, he wears a belt and underwear. His body is also coated in some sort of liquid.

Doobie has many holes in his skull for his snakes to freely move through his head. After being attacked by Jonathan, he gains a large hole in the center of his forehead with a snake sticking out of it and also loses his left eye, allowing a snake to live inside the eye's hole. His bottom eyelids appear unnaturally hardened. Several tiny worms also stick out of the top of his head, resembling hair.

Personality

Doobie is animalistic and vicious. As soon as Dio introduces Doobie to Poco's sister, he immediately acts on his urges and pounces at her, ripping her skirt off. In his brief appearance, he speaks primitively, mostly screeching or repeating his words.

Abilities

Zombie

As a Zombie, Doobie's strength, durability, and speed are multiplied. He can climb up to high places and withstand an anvil stabbing the back of his head, feeling perfectly fine after the initial pain.[3]

Snake Manipulation

Venomous SnakesLink to this section
Doobie Snakes.gif
Doobie can control several snakes who live inside his head, including venomous cobras and flesh-eating vipers. He hides them with the sack on his face so he can catch his opponents by surprise, having his snakes extend themselves and bite his opponents when they are off guard.

This technique is not effective against skilled Ripple users such as Jonathan Joestar, who can easily extract the venom out of their skin.

History

Doobie watching Poco's sister from above

In late 1888, Dio Brando makes Doobie into a zombie in Windknight's Lot. Some time later, Doobie stands on a ledge above a window watching Dio attempt to persuade Poco's sister to join him by offering to give her eternal youth. After she refuses by slapping Dio, he introduces her to the monstrous Doobie and leaves her alone with him. Doobie jumps down from the ledge and grabs Poco's sister, ripping her skirt off. As he squeezes her neck, Jonathan throws an anvil which pierces through the back of Doobie's head, causing him to lose his left eye.

Doobie eaten by his snakes

Doobie grabs his head in pain wondering who attacked him. He then suddenly sends several snakes through the hole in his mask, inflicting Jonathan with bite wounds. Doobie cheers that he managed to bite Jonathan a lot and then removes the sack over his head to reveal his face and his weapons. A large number of venomous and flesh-eating snakes dwell inside his skull. Jonathan manages to eject the venom from his bloodstream by exploiting his new Ripple powers inherited after Zeppeli's death. Doobie charges at Jonathan attempting to bite him again, but Jonathan catches Doobie's snakes and boils their blood a little bit with the Ripple. The Ripple manipulates the snakes into turning against their master, leading to them devouring Doobie. As he is being eaten and melted by the Ripple from the bites of each snake, Doobie wonders why his snakes betrayed him.

Trivia

  • Doobie's cap and sack over his head is a reference to Joseph Merrick,[4] an English man with several deformities who was nicknamed "Elephant Man" when he was exhibited at a freak show. Merrick wore a cap and gunny sack over his head with a hole in it so he could travel without drawing undue attention.[5]
