You could be one inch away, pointing at me with ten guns... The ten bullets wouldn't even touch my Stand!

Tower of Gray (タワー・オブ・グレー(灰の塔), Tawā obu Gurē) is the Stand of Gray Fly, featured in the third part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders.

Specializing in making attacks look like accidents, it takes the form of a giant stag beetle with an extending second jaw and the ability to move at incredibly fast speeds.

The Tower

Tower of Gray appears as a large, dark stag beetle about the size of one's hand with intricate patterns on its shell. A hidden, toothed, secondary jaw can spring out from its mouth.[2] Despite having the general form of a beetle, it also possesses teeth in its mouth.[3]

It represents the tarot card The Tower, which symbolizes the interruption of a journey by something unexpected and chaos.[3]

High Speed Flight

Tower of Gray evading the Emerald Splash

One of Tower of Gray's greatest traits is its amazing speed. Tower of Gray is able to easily outmaneuver other very fast Stands, such as Star Platinum and even can avoid Hierophant Green's Emerald Splash at close range. Its speed is so incredible that, according to Gray Fly, Tower of Gray could have several guns shooting at it at the same time at point-blank range and it would still escape unscathed. Tower of Gray has great flight control, as it's able to write words in cursive while flying and can navigate its way through Hierophant Green's Emerald Splash multiple times unharmed. However, it cannot dodge something it doesn't see coming and is vulnerable to sneak attacks.[3]

Tower of Gray's possesses a secondary jaw at the end of an sectioned appendage which protrudes from its mouth. It has very sharp teeth and enough force to tear flesh apart or pierce its way right through. Combined with its great speed, Tower of Gray is capable of killing multiple people in a very short amount of time and by flying through the head of a person with ease.[2]

  • Hirohiko Araki chose to start off with the less popular Tarot cards for the enemies. He was inspired to create Tower of Gray after imagining how annoying it'd be if an insect was trapped inside of an airplane mid-flight. He also thought the meaning of the Stand's corresponding Tarot card is scary.[4]
  • The plane crash that Tower of Gray is said to have caused in England may be a reference to the Pan Am Flight 103 disaster, in which a plane flying over Britain was bombed and crashed into the ground, killing 270 people. The attack happened in 1988, the year the events of Stardust Crusaders take place.
