Pericolo is a Capo in Passione. He first appears to retrieve Polpo's ¥600,000,000 from Bucciarati and grants him the rank of capo. Immediately after, he gives Bucciarati Polpo's mission to bodyguard Trish Una, the Boss's daughter. Unlike many of his co-mobsters, Pericolo is an ordinary human that does not possess a Stand.
Pericolo is a short, mature man, adorning a beard connected to his short hair and a mustache. One of his eyes constantly wanders, alternating between the two but never at the same time.
He is introduced disguised as a janitor but dons a suit for his later operations.
Pericolo greatly appreciates the boss for giving him a life when nobody else would take him and takes his job very seriously, to the point of committing suicide after passing on a message through Abbacchio's Moody Blues when presented with the order to do so. He is also a friend of Bruno Bucciarati, who greatly appreciates the old man's presence and advice.
The anime adaptation develops his character, showing him as a particularly amiable man despite his job. He is notably shown greeting Giorno Giovanna and welcoming him into the gang as well as warmly laughing when Mista and Narancia excitedly ask to touch Polpo's treasure.
Pericolo is introduced in a janitor disguise along with a disguised Trish Una. Upon receiving Polpo's treasure, he grants Bucciarati news of his promotion to capo and gives him his mission to protect Trish before leaving.
Pericolo is next shown through Moody Blues replaying his presence within Coco Jumbo's room. After relaying the message of a CD being hidden in a statue, he burns the photograph of the area the disk is in and shoots himself in the head to prevent himself from being caught and interrogated by the enemy. Unfortunately, the members of La Squadra Esecuzioni piece together the photograph anyway and chase Bucciarati's group to their next location.
