Horus (ホルス神 Horusu-shin) is the Stand of Pet Shop featured in the third part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders. Bound to ice, it vaguely takes on the appearance of a bird skeleton and allows Pet Shop to generate extreme cold temperatures.
Horus rarely appears in its true form, spending most of its time bound directly to Pet Shop's body. When it does manifest separate from its master, it appears as a large, skeletal creature with the head of a pterosaur. It has multiple limbs ending in bird-like talons, including six small arms on its torso and several pairs of legs on its lower body, giving it some resemblance to a spider or centipede.
In the colored manga, Horus is presented as being icy blue with yellow eyes, and in the anime as being grey with red eyes.
It represents Horus, the Egyptian God of the sky.
Horus is a powerful ice Stand that allows Pet Shop to perform powerful ranged attacks, which, coupled with Pet Shop's agility and flight as a falcon, make for a fearsome opponent in battle.
Horus gives its master the ability to generate ice in large quantity and at a rapid rate. Pet Shop uses the ice in various ways to fight.
Horus is so powerful it can generate blocks of ice large enough to crush a car and make the temperature around it drop noticeably despite the hot and dry atmosphere of Egypt. In a humid environment, its real potential is unleashed and the cryokinesis is even more efficient.
This power is often used offensively to create icicles that can be thrown with incredible force toward a target, acting like missiles. The ice is usually generated a decent distance away from Pet Shop but it can also generate shards in his own beak as a close-range attack.
Horus's ice can also be used to create blocks or walls to restrict enemy movement, as well as simply freezing everything around itself to trap a target. It can also be used to freeze over Pet Shop's wounds, preventing them from bleeding out.
Pet Shop is also shown to generate ice on his talons to presumably augment their dangerousness.
