He's able to use a similar clairvoyance as Joseph because his body is Jonathan's from the neck down.

The Joestar's Stand is the unnamed Stand belonging to the body of Jonathan Joestar and handled by DIO, featured in the third part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders.

It is a plant-like Stand that bears a resemblance to Joseph's Hermit Purple and shares similar abilities. DIO uses its power to track down the Joestar group throughout their journey.


The stand is identical to Hermit Purple in appearance, manifesting as multiple thorn-covered vines that come out of DIO's arms, and depicted as purple in all its appearances.

Color Schemes

The series is known for alternating colors between media, the information presented below may or may not be canon.


Vines(Purple and blue, pink rose petals)


Similar to Hermit Purple, it can produce a psychic photograph by striking a camera (although the camera is notably not destroyed, unlike Joseph's usage, implying it to be a more efficient version of Joseph's Hermit Purple, or simply that Joseph puts too much effort into it compared to DIO). DIO used this technique to track the Joestars and their friends' current location to send Stand users after them. DIO can even use its power to interrupt Hermit Purple’s psychic divination, resulting the TV Joseph was using to be destroyed. This Stand is also capable of showing an image present in someone's heart through a crystal ball. DIO used it to show Polnareff one image of J. Geil, as that image represented the pain Polnareff felt in his heart. The fact that this version of Hermit Purple manifested within Jonathan's body could possibly explain why Joseph has Hermit Purple as well.

Along with activating his own Stand The World, it was stated that DIO's semi-precognitive abilities that seemed to have resulted from a Hermit Purple-like Stand were due to a Stand power that awoke in the body of Jonathan Joestar.[1]
