Scary monsters and super creeps, from Jonathan's ripple up to Josuke's Soft & Wet.

Way too tough of a question, I'm going to have to give a little bit of thought to this one and come back later.

I will say that I'm partial to the Stands that are versatile in terms of use, are given good fight(s), have a fitting name or just have a cool appearance in general.

So many choices.

I really liked the ripple and was sad when it was gone but I guess it was inevitable since it was too limited in the ways it could be used.

As for the Stands King Crimson is my favourite. It had a creepy/cool design the most AWESOME name ever (seriously say it out loud..."King Crimson"...it's just cool) and an ability that I still don't fully understand to this day (I spent hours pondering just how it works and had alot of fun doing so)

D4C was great for similar reasons, although it's ability kinda changed (whatever happened to "can make different worlds exist in the same place at the same time" that lead to the Rashomon thing with Johnny getting shot when it was first introduced?).

Stopping time ist just an incredible ability. I liked The World's design way better than Star Platinum.

Crazy Diamand and Gold Experience were both really versatile and you never knew how Josuke and Giorno were going to use them next.

And that's just a few of dozens of great Stands. You really have to admire Araki for his imagination.

I honestly wasn't expecting Horus to get any votes.

It's a bit tedious though, most of the shit Dio uses it for that is.

One of my favorite moments is when Dio's on the streets, freezes time, and pushes women down and sticks a fork in some guys eye. I chuckled a bit and went "what a douche".

The car scene with Senator Wilson Phillips was also hilariously over the top douchebaggery on Dio's part.

But just think about it.

Wilson tried to run out of the car, but ended up running into the other side of it.

Hilarious as it is, in order for that to happen, Dio literally had to stop time, grab wilson and move him about 50 ft, get back in the car and start time once again.
and he did it in a loop no less.

1. Crazy Diamond
2. Jail House Rock
3. Soft & Wet
4. Sticky Fingers
5. Atum
6. Stone Free
7. Scary Monster
8. Cream Starter
9. The Hand
10. The World
(Honorable mention to Boingo's ridiculous stand, Thoth.)

Crazy Diamond with its power of "restoration" is definitely my favorite, but it's really hard to pick a top 10. There are a lot of cool ones.

Scary Monsters > Scary Monster personally.
You could always hide inside another dinosaur like Ferdinand did.
Then again, look what happened to him.

Transforming into a dinosaur is way cooler than hiding inside a dinosaur. Having a transformation stand making it possible to personally fight other stands is also an awesome perk.

In any case, Diego was eventually able to morph other creatures into dinosaurs (and dinosaur-themed furniture), so I think his version of the stand ended up being stronger.

Having an army of Dinosaurs fight for you is pretty badass aswell though.
I think Diego was better off without the ability to make other Dinosaurs honestly, it takes away from Ferdinand's character. I'd actually of been fine if the whole Silent Way arc where he mainly used the ability never happened... Of course Johnny would have to learn the Golden Rectangle through other means.
I just found it sort of lame that Soundman went corrupt and was killed by a deus ex machina even when aided by Diego's asspull abilities.

Diego turning people into Valentine's new furniture was hilarious though.

King Crimson. I've always though of the ability to erase time and predict moves too be a baller ability. 2nd favorite would have to go to GER for being so broken and third goes to Crazy diamond since its extremely versatile.

Yeah, if you imagine what's going on there, it's pretty damn hilarious. Same with the already mentioned Polnareff scene. Polnareff takes a step up the stairs. Dio stops time, grabs a motionless Polnareff and carries him down a couple of steps, then goes back up and sits down again. And why? Just because. Awesome! Ridiculous but awesome.

Ridiculous but awesome pretty much summarizes my thoughts on the Jojo series. In fact, thanks to you guys pointing this stuff out, I like The World and Dio even more now.

I voted for Horus because I had a love for eagles since I was young.
Even more so, intelligent animals that serve English vampires in Egypt that are capable of freezing an entire sewer, impaling a taxi or just being an ice machine gun with wings are just so rare a sight in anime/manga.
http://i.imgur.com/hWT6cI0.jpg Pictures speak louder than words at most times. http://i.imgur.com/U1oSeM9.jpg
Another reason why I voted for Pet Shop's stand as an ability was because after I watched Homura using time stop, I realised that without any weapons to take advantage of it, there's little offensive potential at all besides having 5 seconds or so to move around doing pranks. In that case, I would rather prefer something with more utility like being able to refrigerate food on the go, make an ice skating rink on a small pond or just cycle over water like Aokiji in One Piece. There's really infinite potential I can think of that Horus has.
I'll just leave this here. http://imgur.com/a/VvHft

My second choice would definitely be Moody Blues. Having the ability to look into/relive the past would be able to help solve many crimes or just be a wonder for gathering information/dirt on people. Not to mention using it to perform magic tricks would be a blast.
Nice to see people answering something other than The World, Gold Experience in favor of King Crimson and Sticky Fingers.

I chose Diego Brando stand the way he transfer into dinosaur and attack with awesome reflects not to mention changing anything into mobs is really something Awesome.

And if I could I would like to choose Cars ultimate form with all the things you want to do to him you can't finish him off at all. That is so Awesome, and how did he end up in the space was the only thing you can do to him. JOJO is really my favorite manga of all the time.

But something bothers me about JOJO at the end of part 3 when Joseph Joestar should be dead he brought him back to life was a bit of uncool. I felt at that time that the author doesn't want any JOJO family to die except part 1 which had a good ending. And I didn't like how Gyro end at part 7 if I remember right JOJO had one bullet at least why didn't he save him as he did when he got that overpower hit that go to the heart. I got the conclusion that the Authors doesn't simply kill any JOJO character as he did to other characters.

I think Araki just wanted to keep the tragic fate of the Zeppeli bloodline running through both Universe'.
Unfortunately yeah, I completely forgot to add the Pillar/stone mask abilities, and I think I'll put them into 1 spot at the end of the poll if I still can. It's probably too late though.

If not for Crazy Diamond's versatility and my bias towards Josuke, I'd of voted D4C aswell, some of it's complexity was lost around the love train arc though.

And to think Pet Shop was only around for 5 chapters of the series. Moody Blues really was the perfect stand for someone with a strong sense of justice such as Abbacchio.

Well, there's no denying Horus is a great stand, Cryokinesis would be an awesome ability.
The Enrico picture is awesome btw, reminds me of Savage Garden.

Yeah, so many great, complex and versatile Stands but I'll go with Dio's World ...
Sure partially because of Dio and his maximum (ridiculous) douchebag moves which he uses The World for.

I am surprised Sticky Fingers got so many votes.

If we talkin' about the Design, and only it, I'd vote D4C all day it's so fabulous (for me) I can't put it in words.

But Born This Way (or Going Underground) really hooked me in term of ablity+design, as much as I love D4C, I'll choose Born This Way as my favorite stands in general.



The artist should add Kyo Nijimura (And her stand) in there

he takes what he's lost and discards what he's won, he's every bit as alive as you and I

Difficult to pick favorites. Some are awesome because they look just too damn cool, others because they have such unique abilities.
Designwise I would put these 5 on top:
-C-Moon
-Killer Queen
-King Crimson
-Paisley Park
-The Grateful Dead

It's great how Araki always manage to nail the final antagonist's stands. Most look really impressive.
Honorable mention to Jobin's stand for giving me a very good first impression. I'm really looking forward to see more of it.

Abilitywise, it's much more difficult to pick favorites since so many of them have so incredibly bizarre powers. My favorite might be Bohemian Rhapsody. It features the best non final fight of the series.
Whitesnake, Sticky Fingers, Sex Pistols, Civil War and Heavy Weather are also examples of unorthodox powers that simply worked outstandingly in the world of Jojo.
