    Whenever you think you've made a hax Stand, you remember that Araki has already one-upped you.

    Anyways, an interesting Stand. The user reminds me very much of Yhwach from Bleach being that he was born with no senses and uses supernatural powers to gain them from others.

    Yeah, there are quite a few parallels with Yhwach, except this guy doesn't steal senses permanently.

    He was lowkey inspired by Yhwach, yeah. That and part 8 Josuke's 『plundering』 ability. In any case, I'm glad you two liked it!

    Just got a flash of inspiration this morning and wrote up a new Stand idea. I think this is one of my favorite ones yet. Feels like the kind of thing Araki might really come up with IMO, especially with the amount of detail I needed to explain its concept. It might not be at "How the hell does King Crimson work?" but I'm getting there... Of course, comments and feedback would be much appreciated.


    『Back In Black』


    Stand User: 『Tod Kennedy』. A career criminal who uses his ability to force other people into serving as 『fall guys』 for his crimes. Due to the nature of his Stand ability, it's unknown how long he's been getting away with his crimes, but it's likely the fall from grace of at least a few previously beloved public figures was caused by him.

    Name is a reference to the punk rock band Dead Kennedys, Tod meaning "death" in German.


    Appearance: Back In Black is normally bound to the user's shadow. When summoned it rises up and coalesces into the shape of a grinning obsidian skeleton wearing a jet black leather jacket. Its face sports a pair of V-shaped gold sunglasses and a wide, leering grin. The Stand's body is nebulous around the edges, as if it were a shadow itself.


    Stats:

    Power- E

    Speed- B

    Range- D (A when 『Shadow Scapegoat』 is active)

    Durability- E

    Precision- E

    Potential- E


    Abilities:



    『Shadow Scapegoat』
    Back In Black can steal people's shadows. When Back In Black steals a shadow, it takes the place of the victim's own shadow, making them look like they have the user's shadow. However, the true power of Back In Black is that when the user steals someone's shadow, he also steals that person's 『karma』. 『Karma』 being a rather nebulous concept, but in this case referring to responsibility for the actions one commits, and inevitable consequences arising from one's good and bad deeds in life.

    By stealing someone's karma, the user can force them to bear the weight of all the ill karma he accumulated, while he gains the victim's karma. To illustrate, say the user punched 『person A』 in the face in broad daylight, then stole 『person B's』 shadow. Any bad consequences the user would normally face from punching 『person A』 will instead be redirected to 『person B』 whose shadow he stole. 『Person A』 and any bystanders who witnessed the act will remember him being punched by 『person B』 instead of the user. If the police were already tracking down the user, they'd unconsciously shift to pursuing 『person B』 instead, without even realizing anything changed.

    This ability even affects written records, photography and forensic evidence, which will all be rewritten to indicate 『person B』 committing the crime instead of the user. The only person unaffected is the victim(s) themselves, who'll find themselves seemingly stranded in a parallel reality where everyone blames them for something they have no memory of doing. On the user's end of things, he'll benefit from all the good karma the victim accumulated prior to the swap. If the victim had a good reputation, people will come to instinctively trust the user, even without knowing why.

    The switch is undone if the user is killed or loses consciousness, returning the stolen shadow and accumulated karma to its rightful owner. However, after 24 hours the stolen shadow will become his permanently, reshaping itself to look like his own shadow. The victim is thus put in a race against time to find the user and defeat him before 24 hours is up and the swap becomes irreversible.

    Back In Black's Range stat is normally D, only able to manifest a few metres away from the user. However, when the Stand binds itself to another person in place of their shadow its Range increases arbitrarily, following the target everywhere they go much like an actual shadow.


    『Cat's Eyes』
    Back In Black's trump card. The user can save himself from a single lethal blow by sacrificing his stolen shadow, making it take the hit in his place.

    However, doing so will immediately return the stolen shadow to its proper owner, so he'd only do this as a last resort.

    Hmm... I'm left questioning how someone would even fight against this Stand if once Tod has stolen a person's shadow, if everyone including physical records are completely deceived.

    I mean, there's still the option of physically chasing down the user and beating him up to try and force him to return the shadow. It basically forces the victim into a "on the run from the law" thriller plot, but Tod himself is certainly not invincible. Also, the victim could still rely on any friends who'd believe in their innocence even if the whole world and all the evidence was against them. (I imagine any Jojo's true companions would still believe in him/her).

    Yeah but, wouldn't he just take someone's shadow discreetly to avoid such a thing, and if he knows the victim is coming after him couldn't he just take another person's shadow to throw them off the scent?

    So I just edited the Stand's stats to clarify things a bit, but Back In Black's A-ranked Range is only for when it attaches to another person. Normally it can only manifest roughly where the user's actual shadow would be, so while Tod could try to steal shadows discreetly, he'd still have to get close enough for the target to see his face to do so.

    Also, I didn't make it very clear in the description, but anyone who gets their shadow stolen by Back In Black is immune to its memory-altering ability from then on. So if Tod steals person A's shadow and then switches it with person B's shadow, person A won't start thinking person B stole their shadow instead. Otherwise you're right his ability really would be almost invincible.

    Thanks for the feedback in any case, Skull.

    The scenario you imagine sounds a lot like what happened in Bleach's Fullbringer Arc with Tsukishima's past cutting ability, in which he inserted himself into the pasts of the opponents he fought, but they still kicked his ass anyway due to faith in Ichigo.

    A Stand I jotted down a while back. I imagine it might've been Jotaro's Stand if he hadn't gotten Star Platinum. Namesake is the Vocaloid song Sky Aquarium, which got an English cover by my favorite singer Nano.

    Of course, comments and feedback would be welcome.


    『Sky Aquarium』


    Stand Appearance: A small mechanical dolphin with musical note symbols emblazoned across its body. Its side fins have feather-like ridges, making them resemble wings. The Stand's body is mostly light blue, with rainbow stripes along its underbelly. When not active, Sky Aquarium usually rests on the user's shoulder like a parrot.


    Stats:

    Power- C

    Speed- A

    Range- B

    Durability- D

    Precision- B

    Potential- C


    Abilities:


    『Like the Fish That Swim Around, Inside This Vast Blue Sky』

    Sky Aquarium can swim through air as if it were water, lending it a great deal of manueverability both in and out of combat.


    『Dive In Your Eyes』

    Sky Aquarium's signature ability. The Stand can 『dive』 into empty space and disappear, entering its own parallel dimension that the user calls the 『ocean in the sky』.

    True to its name, this world resembles a vast and endless blue sky with no land in sight. The only things breaking up the endless blue are the occasional pale white cloud dotting the scenery. Although it looks like the sky, this world is actually underwater. Anyone who enters will find themselves floating through the air as if in zero gravity, able to maneuver themselves by 『paddling』 the empty air. However, despite being underwater, those within can breath freely without fear for oxygen.

    While it's in the 『ocean』 no attack, whether physical or spiritual in nature, can reach Sky Aquarium. The Stand is effectively completely invulnerable as long as it remains in its own isolated world. Conversely, nothing the Stand does in the 『ocean』 can affect anything in the real world, forcing it to 『surface』 before attacking. Space Sky Aquarium passes through ripples like water, letting those in the real world track its movements.

    Space inside the 『ocean』 overlaps with space outside, so Sky Aquarium can bypass obstacles in the real world by travelling through it and then 『surfacing』. For instance, say that the user wanted to get his Stand past a solid wall. Sky Aquarium could simply 『dive』 into the 『ocean』 and swim past where the wall would be in the real world before 『surfacing』 on the other side. Or, say an enemy Stand threw a punch at Sky Aquarium. It could dodge by 『diving』 into the 『ocean』, swim right through where the foe is standing in the real world and then 『surface』 behind them, ready to counter-attack the likely disoriented enemy.

    However, this ability does have a weakness. Sky Aquarium can only stay in its 『ocean』 as long as the user holds his breath. Once he takes a breath, the Stand will be forced to 『surface』 and return to reality. To maximize his usage of this ability the user has trained himself to hold his breath for up to 15 seconds at a time. This ability is best suited for short bursts of rapid travel, as remaining in the 『ocean』 for more than 10 seconds taxes the user severely.


    『In My World』
    Sky Aquarium can also pull others into its pocket universe, by grabbing on to them with its mouth before it 『dives』. Though the victim can move freely inside the 『ocean』, they won't be able to leave unless they can find one of the portals Sky Aquarium creates and escape through it before it closes. The user mainly uses this ability as a way to put his enemies out of commission without killing them. He can also store objects inside the 『ocean』 to retrieve later.

    If the user dies or is knocked unconscious, anything and anyone inside Sky Aquarium's world is ejected all at once, reappearing in reality.
