Complex machines and anything more powerful than my normal form is impossible. I'm also unable to copy faces.

Earth Wind and Fire (アース・ウィンド・アンド・ファイヤー, Āsu Windo ando Faiyā) is the mysterious power possessed by Mikitaka Hazekura, featured in the fourth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series Diamond is Unbreakable. It grants him the ability to shapeshift.

Due to the mysterious circumstances surrounding its user, it is unknown whether Earth Wind and Fire is an actual Stand or an inherent extraterrestrial alien ability.


Like all abilities directly conferring supernatural powers to their users, Earth Wind and Fire does not actually possess a physical form. Instead, it is bound to its user's body.

Mikitaka's Earth Wind and Fire is a harmless shapeshifting power whose usefulness is mitigated by Mikitaka's eccentricity. As a result of Mikitaka's self-proclaimed alien identity, there is speculation regarding the true nature of Earth Wind and Fire and its origin. Due to the circumstances surrounding Mikitaka and the author's own intentional ambiguity, it is unknown if it is an alien ability or a Stand.[3]


Earth Wind and Fire allows Mikitaka to transform into any object.[4] When transforming, Mikitaka decomposes himself into a cluster of strips of an unidentified substance before recomposing himself into one or several objects of his choosing, replicating their appearance, weight, and texture.[5]

Mikitaka transforming into a (wildly inaccurate) die

When transformed into an object, he also takes on the properties of the object. Thus morphing a hand into an ice cream cone will make it cold[6] or morphing himself into a pair of binoculars enables him to also observe things from afar.[7] He can also partially undo the transformation.

Although he can theoretically perfectly replicate objects, Mikitaka is subjected to several limitations.

  • He cannot reproduce complex items like machines or something that requires more strength than his own to operate.
  • He considers all humans to look the same and cannot be subtle enough to copy someone's appearance.
  • He must have a precise idea of what he's transforming into lest his replication ends up largely inaccurate (ex. Morphing into an inconsistent die).
  • He is still subject to his bodily weaknesses; being thrown around as a pair of dice makes him sick and he will throw up, ruining the masquerade.[4]
  • He requires some amount of concentration to operate; if he panics when hearing a siren, he loses control over his power and the shapeshifting becomes random, eventually forcing Mikitaka into his human form.[8]

More importantly, Mikitaka's own ignorance about Earth and human society signifies that he has no idea how he is supposed to act, and when transformed can easily act suspicious.

Earth Wind and Fire seems able to combine its strength with those of other people; when Mikitaka turned into sneakers for Josuke to wear, he notes that their strength combined is what made them able to move so fast.[5]

Chapters / Episodes



  • Earth Wind and Fire was not given a proper name until several years later after Part 4's publication, where it was revealed in JOJO A-GO!GO!. The name was initially written in Japanese as Āsu Uindo ando Faiyā (アース・ウンド・アンド・ファイヤー),[9] but the spelling was later changed to Āsu Windo ando Faiyā (アース・ウンド・アンド・ファイヤー) in JOJOVELLER and the anime.[10][11]
  • Hirohiko Araki mistakenly reused the name "Earth Wind and Fire" (with its original Japanese spelling) in Stone Ocean for the name of Planet Waves in SO Chapter 66 in its Weekly Shonen Jump publication and early tankōbon versions. The Stand's name was changed to Planet Waves in later tankōbon editions and the bunko edition.
