Emperor and Hanged Man, Part 1 (皇帝(エンペラー)吊られた男(ハングドマン) その①, Enperā to Hangudo Man Sono 1), originally The Stand in the Mirror (鏡の中のスタンド, Kagami no Naka no Sutando) in the WSJ release, is the twenty-seventh chapter of Stardust Crusaders and the one hundred fortieth chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.


The group is finally crossing India, albeit worriedly. India is known for having beggars, thieves, curry-eating and disease-ridden people. Avdol assures them that it is a nice country and that all these stories are false. However, the group is surprised to see that all of these stories are actually true: Polnareff steps in cow droppings, Kakyoin's wallet is stolen, and Joseph's taxi stops in the middle of the road because of a napping cow, which is considered a holy animal in India. Avdol, however, tells them that India is a beautiful country once you get used to it, to which Jotaro agrees.

The group rests at a restaurant for now. Polnareff goes to the bathroom and is given a stick to use. Confused as to why he would need one, he finds a pig sticking its head out of the toilet. One of the employees informs Polnareff that the bathroom was built with a pig sty right underneath it. He shows Polnareff how to use the stick: he hits the pig to make it retreat back into its sty. He tells Polnareff that, according to his boss, he can let the pigs lick his ass to become cleaner. Disgusted, Polnareff decides to hold it until they get to the hotel.

As he washes his hands, Polnareff looks into the mirror and is surprised by a Stand with two right hands that he can only see in the mirror. Determined to avenge his sister, killed by the user of this Stand, Polnareff breaks the mirror and searches for the Stand user among the crowd.
