How fierce! It strikes like a bomb, and departs like a storm... Truly, a Stand that reflects his personality. (「どう猛」! それは……『爆発するかのように襲い…そして消える時は 嵐のように立ち去る…… まさに そう性格を象徴したようなスタンドだな'Dōmō'! Sore wa… "Bakuhatsu suru ka no yō ni osoi… soshite kieru toki wa arashi no yō ni tachisaru"… Masani sō seikaku o shōchō shita yōna Sutando da na.)

Purple Haze (パープル・ヘイズ Pāpuru Heizu) is the Stand of Pannacotta Fugo, featured in the fifth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Vento Aureo. The Stand, alongside its user, plays a key role in two light novels inspired by Vento Aureo: Golden Heart, Golden Ring and Purple Haze Feedback.

Purple Haze is a fierce humanoid Stand that stores a deadly flesh-eating virus in the capsules on its hands.

Purple Haze is a humanoid Stand with a similar height and build to Fugo's. Its face and body are patterned by horizontal lozenges of alternating shade, and it has spikes along its back. Armor pieces are present on its shoulders, elbows, and knees. The Stand's lips and appendages are loosely stitched, and its eyes have distinct irides with miotic pupils. Adorning its head is a helmet inspired by Roman design[2], with a transparent visor in the approximate shape of a beak.

In the anime adaptation, Purple Haze receives a long, flowing cape. The Stand is surrounded by a purple mist in most of its appearances.

Purple Haze is a Stand with an unstable personality. It usually behaves with unrestrained violence in its actions, and is prone to incomprehensible mumbling and roars of rage in equal measure. However, Fugo is still capable of controlling it. Despite its tendency to drool uncontrollably, it also possesses a habit of obsessively cleaning the drool off itself until it bruises its own arm. It is stated that its temper, cleanliness, viral ability, and desire to "clean" everything reflect Fugo's own personality.[1]


Because of its deadly ability and potential for indiscriminate destruction, Fugo rarely uses Purple Haze, as stated by Abbacchio.[3] However, it is undeniably a powerful close-range Stand.

Killer Virus Infection

The three capsules on each of Purple Haze's hands contain a particularly deadly flesh-eating virus.[1]

The virus inside of Purple Haze's capsules can decompose flesh quickly

When one of the capsules breaks, usually when Purple Haze punches something, the virus is released and surrounds the Stand. Anything that enters the virus's range is infected; the virus then rapidly multiplies within their body and overrides their metabolic functions, causing them to rot from the inside. An adult human being will melt into organic goo within 30 seconds of contracting the virus.[1] Once the virus infects something, even Fugo himself is incapable of curing them. In cases where Purple Haze is unable to shatter the capsules through direct contact, it can also shoot them from its hand like a pressurized gun.[4]

Because the virus indiscriminately attacks friends and foes,[1] including its own user,[5] Purple Haze's appearance is extremely dangerous for both Fugo and his allies. Fortunately, the range of the virus is short, and the virus can be weakened by light from any source.[1] Despite the deadly nature of the virus, an organism with the right antibodies can survive Purple Haze. Thus, a snake Giorno creates from a brick inside the range of the virus is able to naturally create antibodies and survive; Giorno is then able to use the same antibodies to create a vaccine and save himself from being devoured.[4]
