I do not fear death, but I don't want to be killed by that man... Evil needs a savior as well...

N'Doul (ンドゥール, Ndūru) is a secondary antagonist featured in the third part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders, specifically the ""The Fool" Iggy and "Geb" N'Doul" story arc.

As a loyal assassin for DIO and the user of Geb of the Egypt 9 Glory Gods, he relentlessly battles the Joestar group without fear.


N'Doul is a blind athletic man of medium height, with dark unkempt hair and blank eyes that are always nearly shut due to his condition. N'Doul dons a simple attire consisting of a striped vest on top of a sleeveless shirt, armbands, pants, shoes and a drape to protect himself from the sun in the Sahara. He also wears a headband and two hoop earrings.

N'Doul carries a cane that is segmented and decorated with three jewels on the handle.

Star Platinum is said to be the most powerful Stand. Once I kill Jotaro, Master DIO is going to be happy... For DIO, I will defeat Jotaro using my whole mind and soul.
N'Doul's undying loyalty to DIO

N'Doul's strongest trait is his loyalty to DIO and determined focus to carry out his will. He battles the Crusaders relentlessly and even goes as far as to fatally injure himself to escape questioning. N'doul fanatically idolizes DIO fully knowing his evil, stating that people like him deserve a savior.

Despite his ferocity, N'Doul keeps a cool head and found joy in his battle against the Crusaders, often giggling whenever he was at the advantage. He is confident in his ability as a Stand user, referring to himself as the "the great N'Doul", but not without good reason. N'Doul is a very competent fighter and strategically combats the Crusaders from a distance. He analyzes problems and needs to attentively watch the enemy's movement due to his condition. His overconfidence becomes a weakness, with his stand being nearly lured in the open by Avdol, a move which he praised. He shows respect when outsmarted, and willingly revealed information to Jotaro after his defeat.



Main article: Geb

Geb is a long-range Stand made of water N'Doul can remotely control and shape into anything to attack his foes from afar, notably as a sharp water stream able to slice flesh.

Enhanced Hearing

N'Doul can identify someone's footsteps from far away

N'Doul is blind, but has phenomenally sharp hearing. He is able to determine the position of a fly simply by listening to it fly or hear faint sounds such as grains of sand bouncing against an obstacle hundreds of meters away from him. Using his cane, N'Doul can feel vibrations coming through the sand even kilometers away from his position, memorize's multiple people's whereabouts or identify someone by analyzing the sound of their footsteps.



N'Doul was a blind man who, thanks to his Stand, never feared anything in his entire life, not even death. It allowed him to do anything he wanted and get away with it without consequences, as even the police wouldn't find out about his crimes, although no one ever saw his true value. One day, he encountered DIO and was charmed by his charisma, DIO being the only person to see his true value. N'Doul started to admire that man so much he saw him as his savior, later claiming that "even evil needs a savior".

Stardust Crusaders (1989)

In the anime adaptation N'Doul is shown killing a spy from the Speedwagon Foundation and brings his corpse to DIO for him to feed on.

N'Doul watching the heroes in the desert

N'Doul is introduced shortly after Iggy joins the Joestar Group in the Egyptian desert as he spies on them from a nearby hill. After the group take supplies from a Speedwagon Foundation envoy, N'Doul attacks their helicopter offscreen and causes it to crash. He drowns one of the pilots and hides Geb in a canteen, having himself settled nearly four kilometers away. When the Joestar Group sees the helicopter and investigate it, they find the other pilot and give him the canteen, thinking he's thirsty. Geb then jumps out and decapitates the pilot. He attacks the Joestar group soon after, hiding in the sand. He takes Kakyoin by surprise and slashes his eyes. Kakyoin is taken out but Polnareff thankfully avoids being attacked as N'Doul is distracted by a ringing wristwatch and attacks it, allowing the heroes to know how he detects them.

Polnareff takes Kakyoin and tries to run to the safety of the group's car, with Geb sliding behind him. Geb only manages to cut Polnareff's leg but the Frenchman still reaches the car. However, N'Doul makes the car sink in the sand. Noticing that Iggy's nose allowed him to jump out of the car before the attack, N'Doul contemplates attacking the dog but decides otherwise when he sees that Iggy is indifferent to the group's fate. The heroes are stuck on the sand. Avdol tries to trick N'Doul into attacking an empty spot by throwing his bracelets in the sand. However, N'Doul sees through the trick at the last moment and manages to take out Avdol, only receiving a burn on the arm in return. To distract N'Doul, Jotaro runs toward Iggy to force him to participate in the fight. While Iggy tries to flee by creating a sand glider, Jotaro easily catches the glider and disappears from N'Doul's radar.

Jotaro defeats N'Doul

Midair, Jotaro has an easier time scanning the horizon but he's soon forced to take a single step to give The Fool more altitude. It tips N'Doul on Jotaro's current plan but Jotaro eventually sees N'Doul too. By blowing sand in the air, N'Doul is able to hear the grains hit the glider and he thus starts harassing Jotaro and Iggy. Fearing for his life, the dog tries to go down and leave Jotaro at Geb's mercy but Jotaro then uses Star Platinum to throw Iggy and The Fool at N'Doul, catching him off-guard. N'Doul is forced to recall Geb to his side to protect himself and is also distracted by the dog and loses track of Jotaro. It is there that Jotaro gets to N'Doul in the commotion and defeats him. After being defeated, N'Doul killed himself to prevent his memories from being read by Hermit Purple, likely knowing that his own savior would kill him otherwise. Afterwards, in his dying breaths, he warns Jotaro of another eight enemy Stands. Seeing his valor, Jotaro buries N'Doul's body in the desert.

Eyes of Heaven

The information below derives from Eyes of Heaven which was not written and only supervised by Araki. As such, it may not be considered canon.

When Heaven-Attained DIO starts to rewrite reality, N'Doul is resurrected and he resumes working for DIO.

N'Doul appears alongside a brainwashed Noriaki Kakyoin to attack Jotaro Kujo, Joseph Joestar and Robert E. O. Speedwagon on the rooftops of Cairo in the year 1989. Though they are defeated, N'Doul escapes and disappears but Kakyoin is restored to his right mind by the heroes. N'Doul doesn't reappear in the story afterwards.

Creation and Development

Name spelled as "N'Dyoul"

N'Doul's character is based on the Zatoichi movies' eponymous character. Hirohiko Araki thinks that Zatoichi is just a "scary guy, rather than the hero".[5] Also, N'Doul's outfit design might have been inspired from Antonio Lopez's Tales from the 1001 Nights.

N'Doul's name was originally spelled as "N'Dyoul" (ンドュール, Ndyūru) instead of "N'Doul" (ンドゥール, Ndūru) in Weekly Shonen Jump 1990 #36.

At the time of Vento Aureo's publication, N'Doul was one of Araki's favorite characters.[6]



N'Doul's unused portrait
  • For the Capcom Fighters, cut content reveals that N'Doul may have been planned to be playable at some point. Including unfinished sprites, a portrait, text and concept art.[7]
  • N'doul in the French dub of the OVA, and Kars in the French dub of the anime share the same voice actor, Emmanuel Gradi.
