That is the name of the Rock Insect. A second Rock Insect. It's part of my evacuation drill. (わたしは岩昆虫の名前を言ったんだよ…2匹目の昆虫の名前というワケだ。わたしの避難訓練に含まれている。, Watashi wa Iwa Konchū no namae o itta ndayo... Ni-hikime no konchū no namae toiu da. Watashi no hinan kunren ni fukumareteiru.)

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (オブラディ・オブラダ, Oburadi Oburada) is a tertiary antagonist featured in the eighth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, JoJolion.

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da belongs to a particular species of Rock Organisms. During Wonder of U's evacuation, it releases this leech-like organism on Josuke.


Technically speaking, it is not an insect. It lacks jointed legs or a body separated into three segments. (正確には昆虫ではない。節足がないんだ、体も3つの部位に分かれていない。, Seikaku ni wa konchūde wanai. Sessoku ga nai nda, karada mo mittsu no bui ni wakarete inai.)

Each Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da looks like a small, flat, round disc resembling a cookie, with six stubs protruding from its edges. It visually has a four-toed paw print on its back. When duplicated, the bodies seem to link together via their stubs. Akefu calls Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da an insect but notes that its species aren't technically insects, as they lack a three-segmented body or jointed legs.[3]

Color Schemes

The series is known for alternating colors between media, the information presented below may or may not be canon.


Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is a parasitic Rock Organism, as it feasts on other organisms' blood and bodily fluids. It is shown to be virtually motionless, only moving whenever attacking or being attacked.[3][4] It is shown to protect its master, Wonder of U,[3] and it can be inferred that it is subservient to Toru. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da's species target any animal from above or below.

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is afraid of water, as it prefers to live in dry areas[3] and is shown to shriek whenever it's submerged underwater.[4] As a Rock Organism, it also hates storms and rising waters.[1]


Despite its small size, the organism is shown to be relatively strong enough to deflect Soft & Wet: Go Beyond's bubbles.


Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da latching itself onto Josuke

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da can latch itself onto its victims, like a tick, via a highly sticky substance secreted from its underside. This is effective for the Rock Organism to burrow into the victim's skin and absorb their essence. This creature inhabits a cliff in the wilderness and jumps down on other animals passing beneath it. Once latched, it sucks the body fluids and blood of its victim.[1]

Body Replication

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da expanding its body

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da can spawn copies of itself at a rapid pace from its victim's blood[1] to the point of overwhelming its victim within seconds. Attempting to attack or pull off one of the pads spawns more of its bodies, proving any attack against it seemingly futile. When the body multiplies, its copies form out of one of its stubs.



Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da originally lived on a dry, sloped cliff.[3] It was acquired by Toru and the Locacaca Organization at some point.


Wonder of U keeps the Rock Insect attached to its cane.[3] While evacuating, as Josuke shoots a bubble at it with his finger, Wonder of U releases Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da to stop him.

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da deflects the incoming bubble and latches itself onto Josuke's hand, eating at his flesh. Josuke tries to pry the insect off, but to no avail; the organism clings on and spawns duplicates of itself all over Josuke's arm. He tries shooting at the Rock Insect, but Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da again duplicates itself, swarming him until it completely covers his body. He then tries to fire one last shot at Wonder of U, but Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da spawns some duplicates over his finger, deflecting the bubble. Losing energy as Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da continues devouring him, Josuke eventually collapses.

However, Josuke manages to hit Toru with an invisible bubble, which helps decrease the severity of what Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is inflicting on Josuke. He manages to stand up and, after quickly consulting a map, finds the shower room of the hospital and dives into a pool, which causes the Rock Insects to drown. They shriek, and their corpses surface as they detach from his body.
