Personality

During the fight with Dio 50 years ago, I admit that I admired him... that power, that beauty, that immortality! I want the power of the Stone Mask for myself! Now that I've grown old, I want to become a being that surpasses all!
—Straizo to Joseph, Chapter 46: Joseph Joestar of New York, Part 2

When Straizo appears alongside Tonpetty and Dire, he initially has the impression of being a noble Ripple user who wants to put an end to Dio's ambitions of world domination in order to protect humanity. He also has the habit of uttering the phrase "I, Straizo will show no mercy".[5] Straizo then becomes an acquaintance of Speedwagon during the 50 years leading up to Battle Tendency, with the latter trusting him to destroy Santana before he had reawakened.[6]

Straizo confidently bearing his fangs

Straizo was, however, revealed to be a villainous person with gerontophobia. Straizo explained that he trained in the Ripple to become stronger, but his powers only made him even more aware of his human limitations.[7] He admits having admired Dio's overwhelming strength as a Vampire and when the Ripple proved insufficient to preserve his youth, decided to use a Stone Mask. In his search for a way to stop his aging process, Straizo killed friends and followers. He was ready to die for it, which was demonstrated when he killed the expedition group, along with his disciples, and nearly ended Speedwagon's life.[8] He died satisfied, knowing he would go to Hell as a young man rather than die of old age.[9]

He claimed that, unlike Dio, he would not toy with his enemies to explore the limits of his powers and would eliminate any potential threat as soon as possible,[10] going after Erina and Joseph because they knew of the Stone Mask. He was also aware that Joseph could become a potential threat to him in the future. Straizo's carefulness in his actions is further proved when he is revealed to have brought a scarf made of beetles from Tibet in order to negate Joseph's Ripple.[11] He also repeatedly shot the same pressurized eye liquid Dio used to mortally wound Jonathan. He further showcased his ruthlessness in order to test Joseph's spirit by taking a woman hostage and tearing out one of her teeth to show how serious he was about the threat.[12]

However, Straizo did maintain some good within him, as he didn't want to bring a bigger danger to Earth just to maintain his youth and warned Joseph about Santana's awakening in order to prepare him for the upcoming threat.[9] In spite of his faults, he managed to be a good enough adoptive parent to Lisa Lisa to have her become conflicted when she learned Joseph had killed him.

Abilities

Straizo is a skilled human trained in the art of the Ripple by Tonpetty. He is capable of channeling the Ripple through solid objects to destroy multiple zombies.

After becoming a vampire, Straizo shares their basic characteristics of regeneration and increased strength. He has the advantage of also knowing how to use the Ripple, being the only vampire to do so. Although using the Ripple as a vampire would kill him, his knowledge allows him to easily bypass the tricks of a Ripple user like Joseph.

His regeneration is notably much quicker and more efficient than Dio's as he was able to pull himself together from being blown to several pieces by Joseph's hand grenades at a quick pace without the need of having to drain the blood of a person first.

OldStraizoFirst.PNG
Constant exercising of the Ripple can slow one's aging process, as Ripple breathing imbues the user with life force. However, aging isn't completely stopped. Speedwagon points out that Straizo appears a lot younger than him even though they are both 75 years old. Despite this, Straizo misses his youth and desires to use the Stone Mask.

StraizoKick.gif
Straizo's arms and legs are strong enough to kill anyone with single chops or kicks. He slices the bodies of his disciples and the Speedwagon Foundation excavators with only his arms. When he kicks Speedwagon, the force slices Speedwagon's head open, although Speedwagon remains alive.


After becoming a vampire, the strength of his finger pressure is stated to be 235kg/cm2, and he can jump up to 4.22m while in his weakened state.[13]

Techniques

Overdrive / Ripple Overdrive(波紋疾走(オーバードライブ) Ōbādoraibu, lit. Ripple Dash/Sprint)Link to this section
StraizoOverdrive.gif
The most basic application of the Ripple. Straizo attacks with either his limbs or an object imbued with the Ripple. He uses it directly onto a chandelier to destroy Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam.

Debut: Chapter 50: Straizo vs. Joseph, Part 3 / Episode 11: Master of the Game
SatiporojaBeetleCloth.gif
A Ripple Master can use cloth woven from the dried intestinal fibers of Satiporoja beetles, an insect native to Southeast Asia. The cloth is capable of conducting the Ripple at 100%. Straizo and Lisa Lisa use scarves that are made of 30,000 beetles. As it conducts and disperses the Ripple far better than the human body, it acts similarly to a lightning rod and can completely absorb an opponent's Ripple attack.
Space Ripper Stingy Eyes(空裂眼刺驚(スペースリパー・スティンギーアイズ) Supēsu Ripā Sutingī Aizu, lit. "Space-Splitting Eye-Spiked Surprise")Link to this section

After turning into a vampire, Straizo is capable of using the Space Ripper Stingy Eyes, a pressurized liquid shot from his eyeballs powerful enough to penetrate human skin.
Instant RegenerationLink to this section
Debut: Chapter 50: Straizo vs. Joseph, Part 3 / Episode 11: Master of the Game
StraizoRegeneration.gif
As a vampire, Straizo can quickly regenerate. He connects his flesh and organs back together after being blown up by several grenades. However, completely regenerating his destroyed body uses a lot of energy and leaves Straizo in a weakened state afterwards.

Debut: Chapter 52: Straizo vs. Joseph, Part 5 / Episode 11: Master of the Game
StraizoExplode.gif
By using Ripple breathing as a vampire, Straizo builds up the energy of the Ripple within his body. He does so in order to kill himself, as vampires are weak to the Ripple. The energy eventually swells up and causes his body to explode.

History

Phantom Blood (1888-9)

Straizo with Tonpetty and Dire.

Straizo is, along with Dire and Will Anthonio Zeppeli, one of Tonpetty's followers. During the events of Phantom Blood, Straizo accompanies Tonpetty to the English town of Windknight's Lot after they have received a letter from Will asking for help in destroying the Stone Mask, but they arrive too late to prevent his death. He helps Jonathan in the fight against Dio Brando and his minions, easily defeating Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam to protect Poco and his sister. During the fight, Straizo witnesses the power of the Vampires firsthand. He later appears to wish Jonathan and Erina a good honeymoon.

Post Phantom Blood

Straizo, posing for a photo with Erina, baby Elizabeth, and Speedwagon.

After giving birth to George Joestar II, Erina gives the infant she saved from the night of Jonathan's death to Straizo to raise as his own daughter. Later succeeding Tonpetty as head of their order, his Ripple skills allowing him to slow his aging, Straizo raises the girl Elizabeth as the Ripple user later known as Lisa Lisa. Called by Speedwagon to meet him in Mexico, Straizo gives Lisa Lisa the flawless Red Stone of Aja known as the Super Aja to guard it in his place.

Battle Tendency (1938-9)

Straizo, age 75.

After giving Lisa Lisa the Super Aja, Straizo is welcomed by Speedwagon upon answering his call to meet him in Mexico. Soon after, he is brought to an underground chamber under a recently discovered pyramid where he sees various stone masks and the figure that Speedwagon needs his help to destroy. However, having checked Speedwagon's translation notes the night before and asking about Joseph Joestar's Ripple mastery, Straizo suddenly kills his disciples and Speedwagon's men. After kicking Speedwagon to the ground, Straizo admits that he's envied the youth and vigor Dio kept from using the stone mask. Straizo then helps himself to one of the masks, using the blood of his victims to activate it while explaining his intent to eliminate all loose ends starting with Speedwagon and then the Joestars. The vampirized Straizo then dumps Speedwagon and the corpses into the nearby river, assuming the former will drown while ensuring the Pillar Man will not be revived by his victims' blood.

Straizo as a vampire.

Once at New York City, Straizo stalks Joseph Joestar while he is eating out at a dinner after sunset. Joseph notices Straizo, feigning ignorance of his identity as he leaves the dinner to inspect him before taking out a concealed Tommy-Gun to blast Straizo through the bar's window. As a vampire and using a special scarf to safely neutralize Joseph's Ripple attacks, Straizo thinks that he has the upper hand but underestimate Joseph's resourcefulness, who ties several grenades to his scarf. The resulting explosion blows Straizo into several pieces, which gradually reassemble as Joseph runs off. Once fully regenerated, the naked Straizo kidnaps a lady reporter and intercepts Joseph at the Brooklyn Bridge where threatens to kill the girl if he runs again. Explaining that he is testing Joseph's character to deem if he is truly a threat to him or not, Straizo rips a tooth out of the girl's mouth to prove he means business and provoke the Joestar into fighting him. The fight ends with Joseph, using Ripple-infused shot glasses to redirect Straizo's eye beams, and then knocking the vampire off the bridge with a punch to the face.

Straizo destroying himself.

But Joseph catches him at the last second, demanding answers concerning Speedwagon's death. Straizo reveals the existence of the "Pillar Man" that he and Speedwagon found, telling Joseph that he will cross paths with the being and learn the meaning of evolution. Straizo then releases the Ripple stored in his body to self-destruct, revealing he has no regrets for his actions and prefers going to hell in his prime.

Video Games

Phantom Blood (PS2 Game)

Straizo appears as a playable character during one of the final chapters (against Page, Jones, Plant and Bornnam) and "Extra Battle Mode". If the player manages to use his Special Ripple Move during the fight, a cutscene will appear and automatically end the chapter. Straizo, Jonathan, Zeppeli, Dire and Tonpetty are the only Ripple-user characters in the game.

As Straizo's role in Phantom Blood was fairly minimal, his game appearance and moveset is based on his only fight scene, with his special Ripple move being a continuous series of kicks beginning with "I, Straizo...". As the attack ends with a more powerful kick, he finishes his sentence with "...will show you no mercy!".

JORGE JOESTAR

The information below derives from a source not written by Araki. As such, it may or may not be considered canon.
Straizo picking up Lisa Lisa

Straizo has a supporting role in the light novel JORGE JOESTAR. Straizo adopts Lisa Lisa when she is a baby but doesn't officially live with her until she turns twelve. He lets Erina Joestar raise Lisa Lisa and George Joestar II together while they are young. They decide that after Lisa Lisa turns twelve in 1900, she will celebrate Christmas with Erina and George and then Straizo will come pick her up after the New Year.

After the incident with Antonio Torres and Alejandro Torres, Straizo informs George that the remains of the two had been cleaned up. While the villagers of La Palma spent a terrifying night locked in their homes, Straizo, Lisa Lisa, and the other Ripple warriors travelled around the island killing other monsters. George feels ashamed of himself for getting in Lisa Lisa's way while she battled Alejandro but Straizo comforts George and encourages him to grow up to be a fine young man.

Straizo and his friends decide to stay in La Palma until it is time to take Lisa Lisa back to Italy. They train her while ensuring the island is kept safe. On New Year's Eve, the Ripple warriors all have dinner at Erina's house, eating and drinking a lot. The next morning, he heads off to Italy with Lisa Lisa and the others.[14]

Penelope, Straizo, George, and Lisa Lisa

Five years later, Straizo and Lisa Lisa return to La Palma. He sips tea with Erina at her home while Lisa Lisa goes out to find clues about the Mothman. Erina eventually reveals the story of Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando to George, Lisa Lisa, and Penelope de la Rosa. Straizo mentions after the story that ever since Dio opened the door to the land of the dead, monsters have been popping up in many countries and they've been unable to completely stop the fallout.[15]

Several months later, Straizo is surprised to see George suddenly with Lisa Lisa in Rome after her quest to retrieve the Red Stone of Aja, since George should be in England. Straizo praises Lisa Lisa for reaching the treasure room and questions how she wasn't afraid. He also mumbles with the other Ripple warriors about how it was possible George suddenly arrived in the underground temple since they were standing by the entrance the whole time.[16]

In 1915, Straizo questions how they could fight zombies flying in fighter planes since they can't lace bullets with the Ripple, and they wouldn't be able to touch the zombies directly while sitting in a cockpit. Lisa Lisa remarks that George can simply shoot them all down. In 1920, Lisa Lisa becomes pregnant with Joseph Joestar and George wonders how Straizo will react. Lisa Lisa thinks he won't care and decides to wait a while before telling him.[17]

After Joseph is born, Straizo occasionally checks up on Erina and Joseph to make sure everything is okay with them.[18]
