Manga Debut: Steel Ball Run Chapter 42: Silent Way, Part 3
A pair of old horse riding boots originally owned by Nicholas Joestar who tragically died in an accident. One day, Johnny Joestar found out that his boots were too damaged for use, and sought to borrow Nicholas' boots. However, his father George objected to it as he cherished Nicholas' memory, loving him more than Johnny. They briefly fought over it, causing George to disown his son. Years later during the event of the High Voltage arc, George would wave these boots in front of Johnny as a silent reconciliation.
Gyro's Belt BuckleLink to this section
A belt buckled consisting of two metallic plates on which are engraved two hands normally pointing downward as to emphasize the crotch when the belt is worn. The plates are designed to be in the ratio of the Golden Rectangle, making it a good scale for Spin users to produce an infinite rotation although they generally rely on observation of nature. Gyro would use the belt buckle to push Johnny to his limits, making him realize where to really look to see the Golden Rectangle. Johnny would learn to produce an infinite rotation by observing his surroundings and use the belt buckle to make a metal bullet which granted him victory over Sandman.
Valentine's HandkerchiefLink to this section
Manga Debut: Steel Ball Run Chapter 87: Ball Breaker, Part 5
A handkerchief on which is embroidered the date "20 Sep. 1847", Funny Valentine's birth date. It was originally owned by Funny's biological father and the soldier used it as a memento of what he was resisting torture for. He hid it in his eye socket, enabling Capt. Valentine, his friend, to give it to Funny. It served to boost Valentine's resolve at the moment he was overcome by despair, facing the possibility of remaining buried alive forever due to Tusk ACT4's infinite rotation. Thus, it indirectly allowed him to conceive one last plan to defeat Johnny Joestar.
