I was traveling far and wide in search of my ideal cooking when I first realized I had this fantastical power.

Pearl Jam (パール・ジャム, Pāru Jamu) is the Stand of Tonio Trussardi, featured in the fourth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Diamond is Unbreakable.

When mixed with other ingredients, it is capable of healing a person's ailments.

Pearl Jam is a Stand possessing multiple bodies; each appearing as a cross between a tomato and a pearl onion, with arms and a face. The bodies are extremely small (as they need to be ingested to do anything); as well as seemingly invisible whilst bound to Tonio's dishes. Its design is based on a tomato and various Italian vegetables.[3]

Color Schemes

The series is known for alternating colors between media, the information presented below may or may not be canon.
(Orange body, green and dark orange stem with red jewel on top, light orange lips and arms)
Eyes(Yellow eyes, orange outline)
(Red and orange body, green stem and arms, red jewel, white lips)
(Light yellow sclerae, green irises, black pupils, white outline)


When uncovered by Josuke with his stand Crazy Diamond, they appear to express surprise, along with vocalizations like "meshaa!"/"meshii!" and "gii!".


Although shocking to witness, Pearl Jam is an entirely beneficial Stand centered around cooking and curing illnesses and is exclusively used as part of Tonio's restaurant service.

Curative Cooking

Pearl Jam cures Okuyasu's teeth

Pearl Jam has the ability to cure ailments through the ingestion of a specific dish. The limits of this ability are unknown, though it can heal incurable illnesses provided the right ingredients are involved.

After Tonio diagnoses specific ailments through palm reading,[4] he prepares a high-class dish and in the process infuses Pearl Jam in it.

It is ambiguous whether Pearl Jam influences the eater's perception of the dish or not between Okuyasu Nijimura's overenthusiastic reactions to each dish and Tonio's inherent skill as cook. However anyone who has tasted a dish of his acknowledged that it was delicious.[4]

Once inside the body, Pearl Jam uses the nutrient contained in the meal and the curative properties of the ingredients to cure whatever ailment is targeted by triggering physiological processes such as tear excretion[4] or tooth growth[5] of unnatural intensity or speed, or forcibly ejecting whatever organ is ill while replacing them. In a more extreme case, Pearl Jam opened Okuyasu's belly up in order to eject his intestines affected by diarrhea.[6] The customer's body then comes back to normal as if nothing had happened, but with the ailment now completely cured.[4] It is notable that a specific dish is compatible with a specific ailment, meaning the eater may be served a dish they are unwilling to eat (for instance Okuyasu detests spicy food but is given pasta made with peppers)[5] and inversely an incompatible eater won't be cured (Josuke doesn't react to the still water of the restaurant).[4]

The quality of the food and ingredients also affects how quickly and how strong the healing ability of his Stand is: the greater the ailment, the more expensive and high quality the ingredients have to be. In a Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan chapter, Tonio illegally harvests particularly high quality abalone in order to cure his lover Virginia's cancer, as he was unable to do so with any of the standard ingredients at his disposal.[7]
