Personality

Mannish Boy is an impossible genius: although he is a baby, he thinks and behaves much older. In public, Mannish Boy hides his true self and acts like an ordinary baby to throw people off.[3][4]

Mannish Boy baring his fangs

Although he cannot speak yet and at best can chuckle an evil "hee hee hee", Mannish Boy is a much more cunning foe than he lets on. Though he can't speak, he can express his true self through his Stand, Death Thirteen.[5] Mannish Boy is able to see a scorpion, identify it as a threat, and use a pin to kill it before it attacks him. He is also quick-witted enough to hide said scorpion in his mouth as Kakyoin searches his crib for proof of its eccentricity.[6] Mannish Boy is exceptionally cruel and sadistic as he enjoys playing with his helpless victims by submitting them to horrifying dreams (e.g. covering Kakyoin with eyeballs to silence him)[7] and humiliating them.[8] He is mostly foul-mouthed and arrogant, looking down on the heroes, frequently insulting them in thoughts[9][10] and rubbing in their powerlessness when he has them in his dreamworld.[11] Mannish Boy also smokes.[12]

History

Stardust Crusaders (1988)

Mannish Boy, a normal baby

Sent by DIO to kill the Joestar Group, Mannish Boy manages to reach Yarpline at the same time as the heroes. He tries to assassinate Noriaki Kakyoin but only manages to kill a nearby dog caught in Death Thirteen's nightmare world before Kakyoin is woken up by Jean Pierre Polnareff. In the dream, Kakyoin's hand was cut by Death Thirteen's scythe and the wound carried over to the waking world. Meanwhile, Mannish Boy is found near a well and pretends to be sick. He is given to the care of the Joestar Group by a woman claiming that they need to bring him to a hospital. They reluctantly agree, without knowing the woman was actually scared of him and that the baby was a Stand user.

Onboard an airplane, Mannish Boy uses his Stand to attack Noriaki Kakyoin and Jean Pierre Polnareff.[14] Kakyoin remembers everything and tries to warn Polnareff but Death Thirteen begins its attack. It almost kills Polnareff but the Frenchman is woken up by Joseph Joestar, who orders him to change the baby's diapers. Kakyoin is left alone with Death Thirteen, revealing that he is the baby. Kakyoin tries to cut his arm with a knife but Mannish Boy dismisses the move as futile. In addition, Kakyoin struggles hard and his violent movements in his sleep in response to the attack end up downing the plane.[15] As no one remembers what happened once awaken, everyone believes that Kakyoin is becoming unstable. Kakyoin then discovers the words "Baby Stand" carved on his arms and begins to suspect the baby. He accuses the baby of being an enemy but no one believes in him.[2]

Kakyoin suspects Mannish Boy

A scorpion crawls into Mannish Boy's crib, and he just as suddenly kills it with a pin. However, he's seen by Kakyoin who runs to the crib and tries to find the scorpion. Mannish Boy quickly and discretly hides the scorpion in his mouth which preserves his cover, although he's almost unmasked when Joseph tries to feed him. Desperate, Kakyoin reveals the carving on his arms, which only convinces the others that he's mad. As a last resort, Kakyoin decides to summon Hierophant Green and attack the baby but Polnareff knocks him out. Put back in his crib, Mannish Boy is able to spit out the scorpion and wait until everyone is asleep.[16]

Mannish Boy cornered by Kakyoin

The Joestar Group find themselves in Death Thirteen's nightmare world where he begins to torment the heroes. However, he's then attacked by Kakyoin and his Hierophant, because falling asleep with one's Stand out allows one to utilize them in the nightmare. Hierophant Green strangles Death Thirteen[17] but Mannish Boy sees that Kakyoin's going easy on him because he's a baby. By controlling his nightmare, he attempts to scythe Hierophant from behind but it has already infiltrated the inside of Death Thirteen. Mannish Boy is forced to heal Kakyoin's wounds and leave the others be.


In the morning, Kakyoin teaches Mannish Boy a lesson by mixing some of the baby's excrement into his baby food. Naturally, Joseph and Polnareff, who are clueless about this and believe Mannish Boy to be hungry, decide to feed him the food.[18]

Video Games

JoJo RPG (SFC)

The events of the Death Thirteen arc occur differently than in the original manga. Unlike the printed storyline, Mannish Boy attacks the group from inside a plane en route to India.

Capcom Fighters

HFTF Death 13.png

JoJo's Venture & Heritage for the Future (Arcade/DC)

Death Thirteen appears as a secret boss in Story Mode. The conditions for fighting him are different in both games but after completing them as someone in the Joestar Group, the player will face Death Thirteen. The fight is optional and Story Mode will continue as normal even when losing.

In Heritage for the Future, Fearless Kakyoin (恐怖をのり越えた花京院)'s Story Mode is set around Mannish Boy trapping Kakyoin in a bizarre dream as revenge for an earlier encounter.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (PS1)

PSXKakyoinInTheDream.png

In the PS1 port of the arcade games, Mannish Boy appears as a boss battle in Super Story Mode. Mannish Boy traps the Joestar Group in a dream and Kakyoin must defeat his Stand Death Thirteen, using Hierophant Green.

Death Thirteen's special battle can be unlocked in Book Mode, but the player can only play as one of the eight heroes (including Proud Lineage Joseph and Fearless Kakyoin).

En route to Egypt, the group finds themselves in a strange amusement park. A Stand named Death Thirteen appears and explains that they are within its nightmare world, only to be caught off-guard by the appearance of Hierophant Green; Kakyoin, having activated his Stand before falling asleep, prepares to fight the Stand. After the battle, Kakyoin finds the Stand's user, a baby named Mannish Boy, and scoops its feces into his food.
Secret Factor: It hasn't been severed! Its torso turned into string... (切断されてないッ!胴体を紐状に)

Use Kakyoin's "Stand Appearance Attack" move.
