Th-this hallway was an illusion!

Tenore Sax (ティナー・サックス Tinā Sakkusu) is the Stand of Kenny G. featured in Stardust Crusaders. It allows Kenny G. to create complex illusions.

Summary

As a Stand that generates illusions and whose user was swiftly defeated, its appearance and personality, if any, are unknown.

It is one of the first Stands to not correspond to a tarot card or an Egyptian god and instead makes a musical reference.[1]

Abilities

Thanks to its illusions, Tenore Sax may be a useful Stand, but was defeated too rapidly to determine any strength other than disorienting enemies. One weakness is that it doesn't create olfactory illusions, as Iggy's nose was able to detect Kenny G.'s presence.

Illusion

Tenore Sax has the ability to generate illusions that can distort the inside of DIO's mansion, producing incomprehensibly large rooms or complex labyrinths. The Stand can replicate not only a specific area's appearance, but its composition as well; in the case of Telence T. D'Arby's island, the feeling of the water and ocean breeze were identical to the real thing.[2] To dispel the illusions, it is necessary to defeat its user, Kenny G.

Trivia

Tenore Sax' card in the Capcom game.
  • Tenore Sax is one of two stands in Stardust Crusaders not to be named after a Tarot card or an Egyptian god, the other one being Cream. Both were not given proper names until a few years after Part 3's publication, where they were revealed in JoJo6251.
    • It's also the only stand in the series to have a musical reference that isn't related to a specific band, song, or album.
    • The Capcom game gives both Cream and Tenore Sax their own Tarot cards.
  • Araki admits he simply created Tenore Sax to give the story some resting time. Having been a fan of the artist, Kenny G, he apologizes in hindsight for making the character so dispensable.[2]
