Golden Wind - Episode 9
Team Bucciarati acquires Polpo's treasure and give it to the capo Pericolo. As a reward, Pericolo promotes Bucciarati. However, Pericolo gives gives him the mission to bodyguard the Boss's precious daughter Trish Una from a squad of hitmen.
After Guido Mista's victory over Sale, Team Bucciarati gathers inside one of the restrooms of Capri. In here, Pannacotta Fugo gives Mista crude first aid by stapling his wound shut, which shocks but also amuses Mista and Narancia Ghirga. Just as Bruno Bucciarati prepares to announce where Polpo's treasure is located, he is interrupted by two oncoming janitors. Narancia tries to tell them off, but the younger janitor antagonizes him and a fight ensues. The scuffle is defused when the second janitor reveals himself, who Bucciarati recognizes as the much-respected capo, Pericolo.
Pericolo has come to Capri on Bucciarati's request to examine Polpo's treasure. To the team's surprise, Bucciarati had hidden it in the walls of the restroom with his zippers. Upon examination, Pericolo deems the jewels to be worth billions of lires in the market and, to reward Bucciarati's contribution, makes him officially a capo.
However, Pericolo then explains that The Boss of Passione has immediate orders from him: Bucciarati must protect his daughter, who is none other than the young janitor in disguise. Pericolo explains that The Boss's daughter is named Trish Una, although the family name comes from her mother, a woman by the name of Donatella. Donatella was once the Boss's lover, back when he operated under the alias of Solid Naso. Although the Boss left Trish's mother behind, she recently fell ill, and, sensing her impending death, began to investigate "Solid Naso." This caught the attention of Passione, but more alarmingly the attention of a rogue team who plans to overthrow the Boss. The Boss immediately sensed Trish was Donatella's child and had ordered her to be secured, but the rogue team is currently trailing her and Team Bucciarati must now bodyguard her until the traitors are dealt with. Because the task was originally Polpo's to fulfill, Giorno worriedly deducts that the rogue team must be a group of Stand users.
Pericolo then leaves Bucciarati while Trish, who's gone to the restrooms and changed clothes, reappears. She asks Fugo for his jacket, and conceitedly wipes her hands on it before listing several instructions, suggesting her to be a spoiled girl with luxurious tastes. Departing from Capri with the rest, Giorno privately thinks that safeguarding Trish is now his best bet to approach the Boss, although failure will certainly mean death. Meanwhile, one of the operatives from the rogue group, Formaggio, discusses online the consequences of Polpo's death. Polpo was supposed to handle Stand-related business, but his death means that another capo will be guarding the girl.
Some time later, the group has relocated into a countryside hideout. Bucciarati sends Narancia in town to buy groceries alone, despite Fugo's reservations about him being able to avoid being trailed. However, Abbacchio explains that with Narancia's Stand ability, it will be easy for him to detect and deal with any pursuer. After the groceries are done and Narancia puts the bags inside his car, he notices Formaggio who has mysteriously appeared inside. Narancia tries to play dumb against Formaggio's insistent questioning and falsely affable attitude, until the rogue assassin summons his Stand, Little Feet, to claw Narancia's face.
Angry, Narancia unleashes his own Stand Aerosmith, a miniature plane that flies inside the car and begins to fire everywhere inside it. Formaggio understands how powerful yet imprecise Aerosmith is and that he is at a disadvantage in a cramped space. When Aerosmith launches a bomb, he is forced to use his power and disappears in the explosion of the bomb while Narancia kicks the car in anger. Suddenly, Narancia's right shoe falls off. Meanwhile, Formaggio has used Little Feet to shrink himself and sneakily jumps into Narancia's pocket. From there, Formaggio spots the women's items Narancia had bought and easily deduces that Bucciarati is indeed guarding Trish. Narancia, shrinking at a slow pace, will soon be at a disadvantage.

With a peaceful aura and small stature, it is difficult to imagine Pericolo being a capo. Director Takahashi recalls. the difficulties of making him appear dignified, but his regal words and Bucciarati's deference towards him cements the importance of his position.
2. Trish the Cleaning Crew Member
"Did you all notice that Trish's figure when she's revealed to be the boss's daughter changes from when she first appears?" Takahashi explains that they designed two versions of her in cleaning clothes, one with an androgynous figure and one with a feminine figure.
3. The Car Keys
A Pinocchio doll was added to the keychain. "The doll was added for the match cut to the flashback scene, but you could also say we used it for its cute color design. I'm sure anyone who's been to Italy once can understand, but it's an item that shows up in every gift shop in Italy. It's very memorable."
4. Narancia's CarOne of Takahashi's favorite scenes is the pacing of the sequence where Narancia kicks the car as it explodes. "The tension created by the music, the sound effects, the animation, everything about this scene gets me going. It's what we had in mind during storyboarding, but seeing it go together so well felt great.
- Golden Wind Director Yasuhiro Kimura revealed that the square in which Team Bucciarati meet Pericolo and Trish is modeled after the Piazza Umberto I of Capri.
- Ghiaccio's message to Formaggio announcing Polpo's death has his name spelled as "Volvo" instead of "Polpo".
