This rain... I can't help but feel it's odd for this rain to suddenly show up out of nowhere... This doesn't seem like a natural phenomenon...

November Rain (ノーヴェンバー・レイン(11月の雨), Nōvenbā Rein) is the Stand of Jodio Joestar, featured in the ninth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, The JOJOLands.

It has the ability to summon rain showers that have a selective crushing weight.

Appearance

November Rain has a humanoid head and broad torso attached to a downward-pointing cone. Its face and neck are heavily creased with lines converging in the center of its face. It has a light, concave plate of armor covering the center of its face and neck, serrated at the top of its head. The armor is curved inward at its eyes and neck to leave them exposed, giving November Rain an angry expression. The armor also has a slit on each side below its eyes, small holes beneath the slits near its chin, and a single hole on its forehead. Oval-shaped armor covers each side of its head, split into three pieces. The irises of its eyes are split by vertical lines.

November Rain's torso is plain, but feather-like appendages project from the cone at its stomach. The cone itself is grooved horizontally, splitting it into four parts. It bears two congruent triangles connected to each other that are split between a dark and bright half, matching the symbol on Jodio's outfit.

Finally, November Rain possesses four long thin legs, with two emerging from the front out of its shoulders, and the other two from its back. Each leg is articulated with ball joints, and its front legs are thicker than the back.

Abilities

Heavy raindrops crushing a police officer

Heavy Rain

November Rain is able to produce localized rain showers with heavy raindrops. When the raindrops touch someone, they dig into the victim's skin, and enough of them are able to completely crush a human. It is unknown how long the effect lasts, as victims have been shown to revert back to normal once the Stand is called off.[2]

November Rain is able to select what it will crush with its rain. Jodio has shown a fine-tuned control that allowed him to destroy incriminating evidence in the hands of a DEA agent without harming her by destroying the plastic bag it is held in, while also piercing holes in surrounding police officers' shoes without harming them either.[3] The rain's destructive power can seemingly be altered throughout the entire course of the fall, since Jodio was able to make the raindrops seep through a carpet without tearing it, and then break the concrete floor beneath.[4]

The Stand's range where it can produce rain is a 3 meter radius and a height of 4 meters.[5] The rain seems to fall parallel to Jodio's own head to toe axis, which lets him change the direction of rainfall by adjusting the position of his body. For example, while hanging upside down by a rope, Jodio could swing himself at the right angle to shoot the raindrops horizontally.[6] When used on water, the rain only reaches the water's surface and cannot go in deeper.[5]
