My Stand Khnum is a transforming Stand! I can alter my height, weight and scent!

Khnum (クヌム神, Kunumu-shin, lit. "God Khnum") is the Stand of Oingo, featured in the third part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders. It is also a member of the Egypt 9 Glory Gods, a group of Stands representing ancient Egyptian gods.

Khnum is a pure ability and allows Oingo to mold his face to disguise himself as anyone.


Khnum is a Stand that confers the ability to change shape to its user, Oingo. Thus, it doesn't have an appearance or a personality.

The Stand represents the Egyptian God, Khnum, the god of rebirth and creation, alluding to Oingo's ability to reshape his body in any way he sees fit.


Khnum is a Stand with no combative ability, whatsoever, but is useful for approaching people multiple times without them becoming suspicious. Thus Oingo manages to nearly assassinate the Joestar Group[2] and was foiled only by bad luck.


Oingo can change appearance

Khnum enables Oingo to alter his appearance,[3] height, weight, scent and presumably voice[4] at will.

To do so, Oingo can mold his face as if it were clay to modify it.[3] He cannot change his clothes but can alter his own hair, doing so to match Jotaro's hat at one point.[4] Oingo claims he can freely undo his alterations, although he is never seen doing so.[5]

Creation and Development

Before its creation, Araki states he had only been thinking about various ways to attack, like with fire or water. With Khnum, it was around this point that he wanted to bring in an ability that could add some suspense to the story.[6]

In the anime, Khnum's card is shown as it is normally depicted but a new design of it can be seen as the design on Oingo's shirt. This makes Khnum the only Stand of the Egypt 9 Glory Gods to receive an original design of its card from the anime.
