Dio Brando (ディオ・ブランドー, Dio Burandō) is a playable character in Stardust Shooters with twenty-three different units in rarities ranging from SSR to N. Both his Part 1, and Part 3, incarnations appear as playable Metal Strikers. For his Part 1 variations, his younger self's Finish Move attacks the opponent with a punch followed by a fingerprint (mimicking the same finishing blow he dealt to Jonathan in their first fight), while his vampire versions attack the opponent with his fingers while sucking their blood.
One of the units, Dio Brando (Commemorative) cannot be set as a member of the team, but its ability can be used when equipped to another unit.
Jonathan's eternal rival. He tries to get rid of Jonathan, but it fails and he ends up drinking and getting into trouble in the port city.
