History

Background

Kenny G. is first shown preparing himself to battle the Joestar group with Vanilla Ice and Telence T. D'Arby. When Nukesaku suggests he could help them, the group threatens to kill him should he interfere in their battle.[2]

Stardust Crusaders

In order to aid Telence, Kenny G. uses his Stand to trap Joseph Joestar and Jotaro Kujo with Telence. With this, he manages to separate them from the rest of the group so Vanilla Ice could attack. He then created several illusions to confuse the ones left, making DIO's mansion display much more staircases and ways than it actually had. By the time they arrived at his location, however, Muhammad Avdol easily discovered where he was hiding using one of Magician's Red's abilities. Iggy then used The Fool and disposed of him before he could do any damage.[3]

Spin-Offs

Kenny G. lets Hol Horse enter his hideout to speak to Mariah, but only after Hol Horse agrees to unsummon his Emperor. Even then, Kenny G. doesn't deign showing himself.
