The only thing you should worry about... is what will happen when you're pulled apart and left on the ground by my zippers.
—Bruno Bucciarati, Chapter 447: Bucciarati Is Coming, Part 5

Sticky Fingers (スティッキィ・フィンガーズ Sutikkyi Fingāzu) is the Stand of Bruno Bucciarati, featured in the fifth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Vento Aureo. Sticky Fingers is a short-range humanoid Stand that can create zippers on any surface.



Sticky Fingers is a humanoid Stand of a height and build similar to Bucciarati's. Its face is hidden apart from the mouth by a helmet-like covering adorned with a mohawk-like row of short spikes. Its body is covered in a dark body suit, with the chest and stomach exposed, and has pieces of padded armor over the shoulders, arms and wrists, knees and feet.

Zippers varying in size hang from the base of its neck and abdomen, the back of its hands, and the top of its feet.

Most media featuring Sticky Fingers portray it as being white and blue.

Sticky Fingers is one of the few Stands used in conjunction with its user's Stand cry. Bucciarati's trademark line begins by stringing "ARI, ARI, ARI, ARI" along with his rapid punches; followed by "Arrivederci!" ("Goodbye" in Italian) at his finishing attack.


Sticky Fingers is a close-range Stand whose excellent strength and speed make it suitable for direct combat. In addition, it possesses a very versatile ability in the form of its zippers.


Sticky Fingers' primary ability is to create zippers on any surface it touches with its fist, which it can remotely open or close at its leisure. For example, Sticky Fingers can hit a wall, unzip it to create an opening and go through it, then close the zipper.[3] The idea of a zipper stand comes from the Sticky Fingers album's cover.[4]

Sticky Fingers detaching its arm for increased range

Bucciarati can even create zippers that cut through the entirety of objects, allowing him to dismantle them. With this ability, he can separate enemies into multiple pieces[5] and even perform a cutting attack by detaching something and then canceling the zipper. Bucciarati has control over whether sectioning by zippers inflict actual damage or not. Non damaging examples include when Bucciarati zipped his head into two halves to evade an attack,[6] and when he detached Mario Zucchero's head, yet Mario was still alive.[7] Damaging examples include when Bucciarati split his heart in half to cease its beating,[8] and when he sectioned Pesci in to numerous pieces, which was instantly fatal.[5]  

Inversely, Bucciarati is free to attach several things together with his zippers. It allowed him to block King Crimson's arm when it impaled his chest[9] or even attach another's arm to his body.[10] It also enabled Abbacchio to heal his severed hand.

Bucciarati can remotely open and close his zippers

Because the zippers are remotely opened and closed, Bucciarati can take advantage of the zipping itself. He can create long zippers over surfaces and control the zipping to rapidly reposition himself if he holds the zipper's handle, for instance, to move down a lift shaft using the zipper to slow down his descent.[11] Moreover, nearly cutting an object in two then rapidly closing the zipper from a distance creates a makeshift pincer.[12]

If Bucciarati opens a zipper to inside a voluminous object, it actually doesn't show the interior of the object but a dark space in which Bucciarati can put objects like precious items to safely store[13] or himself to hide.[3]
