Enigma (エニグマ Eniguma) is the Stand of Terunosuke Miyamoto, featured in the fourth arc of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Diamond is Unbreakable. It has the ability to seal objects and people into pieces of paper through visual symptoms of fear.
Enigma is a dark colored humanoid Stand. Its body is covered in lighter colored standards resembling question marks. Other features include dotted round eyes and heart shaped kneepads. When Enigma's ability is activated, its body will sometimes morph to complete the image that is created when its target is turned into paper.
Enigma is not suited for direct combat, but its esoteric ability to seal people inside pieces of paper makes it a fearsome Stand difficult to fight and escape from.
Enigma is able to transform objects and people, including the user, into pieces of paper.
For simple objects and animals, Enigma can simply apply its ability. However, to trap a person in paper, the user must discover the habits the target displays when afraid. Once he has witnessed them display their habit enough to be 100% sure it's their "tell", the Stand can capture the target the next time they display such "tell".
When its ability is activated, part of the object is literally transformed into paper and the rest of it is slowly but inexorably absorbed. The patterned design produced is reminiscent of the works of M. C. Escher. Once transformed, Terunosuke must keep the paper folded to keep the item inside but is free to unfold it later whenever he needs the trapped object or person released. Anyone is free to release something by unfolding the piece of paper.
There is no restriction to what Enigma can transform. Terunosuke may seal anything ranging from fresh noodles to taxi cabs (including the driver), fire, and loaded guns. The condition of the object or person trapped in the paper remains the same as long as the paper is kept in one piece but damaging the piece of paper results in an equivalent damage on said object or person.
In addition, Terunosuke himself can transform into paper. The transformation is instantaneous, allowing him to evade attacks, and he can freely undo it as well. When as a piece of paper, Terunosuke can hover around to reposition himself.
