Egypt 9 Glory Gods
The Stands of the Egypt 9 Glory Gods are named after some of the Ennead and other ancient Egyptian gods. They are sent by DIO in an attempt to kill the Crusaders as they travel across Egypt to reach DIO's mansion in Cairo.
The members each travel to different locations in Egypt. N'Doul is the first assailant to attack the Crusaders as soon as they reach Egypt in a desert. He wounds Kakyoin's eyes but is defeated by Jotaro Kujo and Iggy. In Aswan, Oingo and Boingo attempt to assassinate the group through various methods but fail each time, with Oingo eventually getting injured from his own weapon. Next, Anubis possesses a boy named Chaka and confronts Polnareff at Kom Ombo Temple. Anubis later manages to possess Polnareff before he is defeated by Jotaro in Edfu.
In Luxor, Mariah battles Joseph Joestar and Muhammad Avdol, while Alessi fights Polnareff and Jotaro. The Crusaders defeat their opponents and move on to Gizeh. Daniel J. D'Arby challenges them to various games and manages to steal Joseph and Polnareff's souls before Jotaro bluffs his way to victory. After reaching Cairo, they are attacked by Boingo again, who has teamed up with Hol Horse. Once the duo fails, Boingo decides to give up on fighting them and turns over a new leaf but is defeated by Iggy. Later, Pet Shop finds Iggy by the gates of DIO's mansion and pursues him. The dog successfully kills the falcon but suffers from severe injuries.
The Joestar group finally reaches the mansion and is greeted by the last Glory God, Telence T. D'Arby, who drags Jotaro, Joseph, and Kakyoin into a hole which takes them to another room. In a battle of video games, D'Arby is the winner against Kakyoin and steals his soul, but he is ultimately defeated by Jotaro and Joseph who cheat their way to victory.
List of Cards
Creation and Development
Atum's card was the only one to not be present in the manga or anime. However, it was included in Adventure Battle Card and the Stardust Crusaders OVA 2007 boxset, despite Telence T. D'Arby not appearing in the OVA.
- The title, "Egypt 9 Glory Gods" is derived from the Greek term "Ennead"; which was used to describe the nine primary deities in Egyptian mythology. The Ennead's membership consists of the gods Atum, Shu, Tefnut, Nut, Geb, Osiris, Isis, Set, and Nephthys.
- Of the members of the Ennead, only four of them were adapted into Stands.
- In JoJo's Venture and its revisions all Tarot and Egypt 9 Glory Gods cards are vertically-oriented including cards of Osiris, Bastet, Sethan and Anubis that are originally horizontally-oriented.
- Daniel J. D'Arby can't be fought in Arcade versions of the game, so card of Osiris can't be seen there but it can be seen in fortune-telling mini-game in PS1 version instead.
