Can I ask you one thing though? How did you know they call me "Nukesaku"? (ひとつ問いてもいいですか?どうしてわたしのアダ名が「ヌケサク」ってわかったんですか?Hitotsu toite mo ī desu ka? Dōshite watashi no adamei ga "Nukesaku" te wakatta ndesu ka?)
—Nukesaku, Chapter 247: DIO's World, Part 1

Nukesaku (ヌケサク Nukesaku) is a tertiary antagonist featured in the third part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders.

He is a Vampire henchman of DIO that disguises himself as a woman as an attempt to attack Jotaro when the Joestar Group infiltrates DIO's mansion. Having no Stand,[2] he is used as a punching bag and unwilling guide to his master's coffin.

Appearance

Nukesaku Appearance.png

Nukesaku is a small, pale-skinned male vampire.[2] He has long dark unkempt hair spiked backwards and a large widow's peak. Nukesaku wears a dark jumpsuit with an assorted vest and scarf on top. He also wears boots, a loincloth, multiple ringlets on his wrists and ankles, and an animal print taqiyah.

On his backside, he has a second, female face and female breasts, which he keeps covered using his breastplate while assuming his natural form. Disguised as a female, Nukesaku wears simple earrings, a light dress, and a stylish belt.

In the anime, Nukesaku is seen wielding a sawed-off double-barrel shotgun to test the power of DIO's Stand, The World.

Personality

Nukesaku suffers from an inferiority complex due to his abilities being looked down upon by DIO's other henchmen, who refuse to let him join the battle. When they are defeated, Nukesaku immediately jumps at the chance to demonstrate his abilities and defeat Jotaro and company, but is careless in the placement of his body parts. Even when he is forced to lead the group up to DIO's tower, he still maintains a hopeless belief that DIO will use the opportunity to defeat the Joestars, and is greatly surprised when he realizes that his master has executed him for his failure, demonstrating that even DIO found his abilities useless.

His carelessness, name which literally means "fool", and the incident during which Jotaro calls him a fool and Nukesaku subsequently asks how he knows his name, suggest that Nukesaku is indeed exceptionally dim-witted.

Abilities

Nukesaku's second face

As a vampire, Nukesaku has the natural ability to dislocate his body parts. In conjunction with his "Female Face", he can use it to trick people into believing he's actually just an innocent woman.

Female Face: Nukesaku has a female face on the back of his head, along with breasts located on his back. Using the female face, he can use it to talk and make expressions. While somewhat useful, he often forgets to fixate his body to match the way this face is looking.

History

Background

Nukesaku apparently suffers abuse from the rest of DIO's allies, being treated as a burden due to his lack of Stand power, to the point of being given the title "The Idiot". Even when there are very few Stand users left to guard DIO's mansion, they threaten to kill him should he interfere. After the ones left (Vanilla Ice, Kenny G. and Telence T. D'Arby) are defeated, Nukesaku sees his chance to prove his value.

Stardust Crusaders

Nukesaku attempts to use his ability to trick Jotaro and company into believing he's an innocent woman trapped in DIO's mansion. He, however, is greeted with a punch to the face by Star Platinum, and it is then that Jotaro tells him that he was careless, due to the fact that he had not reversed his hands as well. Nukesaku notes that he forgot his thumbs pointed in the opposite direction when he was clasping his hands. He is forced to lead the group to DIO and believes that DIO will use this opportunity to defeat the Joestars, but when he removes the lid of his master's coffin, he finds himself sectioned to pieces in the coffin instead.

Heritage for the Future (PS1/DC/Arcade)

Nukesaku appears on the cutscene where the group finds DIO's coffin and he appears inside totally injured, much like the original storyline. Nukesaku can also be a playable character via Alessi's Stand ability on DIO character, where instead of becoming a younger version of himself, DIO will turn into Nukesaku, who can only run away or use medium punch.

If censorship (regulation in the arcade options, triggered by certain region settings) is enabled, or in the HD remake, expressions disabled, he will instead be wholly trapped inside DIO's coffin in utter disbelief, without the dismemberment of the original, and the crusaders leave him helpless upon realizing DIO is in the vicinity.

All Star Battle (PS3)

Nukesaku appears as a stage hazard on DIO'S MANSION stage, after one of the players is thrown into the hazard indication area, Nukesaku will appears on the stage's wall. Excited, he will drop down on a location equally distant between both fighters, skewing towards whichever character has more health. Characters he lands on will bounce on the ground and take considerable damage. If hit himself by any source, Nukesaku will be sent reeling before retreating back to the ceiling. Attacked or not, he will continue to drop down from the ceiling periodically for the rest of the match.

Trivia

  • In Weekly Shonen Jump 1997 Issue No. 22/23, Araki confirms in an author's note that Nukesaku is a vampire and does not have a Stand ability. This had apparently been a frequent question asked of him by fans.[2]
  • In Over Heaven, Nukesaku is merely a Zombie.
