    Also for what it's worth DIO and Diego's Stands aren't actually the same.

    One is
    ザ・ワールド
    世界
    , the other is THE WORLD. Also they don't look identical.

    So there's a difference beyond DIO being a vampire and Diego not being one.

    it basically is.
    Helm of Hidden Infidelity. The Noble Phantasm of Saber of Red, Mordred. She hid her face with a helmet given to her as a set with a suit of armor by Morgan in order to prevent King Arthur and his subordinates from learning of her true identity.
    It’s a little like a simplified version of “For Someone’s Glory: Not For One’s Own Glory” from “Fate/Zero”. The condition to negate the effects of this Noble Phantasm is solely the act of her removing her helmet on the battlefield, so it will continue to hide her stats even if she walks around normally with her face unhidden. I understand it seems like a bit of a lame excuse, but walking through the streets in a suit of armor only works in a Fantasy RPG world, so please bear with it.
    Perhaps due to having being enchanted by Morgan, both the helmet and armor are quite sturdy in terms of defense as well. Furthermore, “Clarent Blood Arthur: Rebellion Against My Beautiful Father” cannot be used until the helmet is removed. As a result, Mordred keeps it almost always removed after she first takes it off the time.
    This is a bit of a digression, but the helmet isn’t placed down anywhere when it’s off, but instead is inserted into the armor (the reverse is also possible). I found the scene where the protagonist of a certain Sci-Fi Horror TPS Game equipped their helmet to be really cool, so I fervently requested it of Konoe-san (TL note: the illustrator). Even if the author was satisfied with it, it was probably a huge annoyance to him. Sorry.

    that's called an expression.

    Could you please provide me with Araki's quote on Star Platinum and The World being faster-than-light? I mean, I'll still find it completely ridiculous based on what's actually shown in the manga, but you got me curious about it.

    Certainly the user's mental strength is an important factor to determine the power of all Stands, but The World's improvement during the fight with Jotaro is explicitly attributed to Dio drinking Joseph's blood: http://mangafox.me/manga/jojo_no_kim...8/c262/18.html

    Would having a corpse part infer a divinity rank? as if so most part 7 jojo characters would have minor divinity at some point.
    With the way the keep adding shit to gils vault, soon he will have the root in it.

    Life is short, we don't need to shitpost at eachother about nasu.

    That they're not visually identical is probably a reflection of the different psyches of their users, not that both are different Stands altogether. As for the name change, the original Dio's name is also written differently in Parts 1 and 3 as an artistic decision to showcase the changes in the character, not that he's two different people; I'd say the same applies in this case.
    Although that is cool to know, so thanks for the info.

    The same manga has Jotaro time stopping against Pucci when he notices Pucci approaching, during a fight where Pucci has days compared to everyone else having a few seconds.

    I like Escanor more than Gawain. He's like a wage-slave salaryman by night, Superman by day.
    I hope he and Merlin are actually married. But she totally just leaves him and does whatever.

    did we ever do DIO vs arc
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    So now that I take a lot at the F/E's let's play, it looks like Gawain was so strong he couldn't even be scratched, his skill is also described as invincibility in-game. Also, kinda late but now that I think about it being 2x a Servant with no boost and 4x a Servant with boosts means boosted Arc is roughly on the same level as Gawain. Quite impressive since it means you are pretty much invincible, I guess that's where affinity and NPs come into play.
    The priest was waiting for the arrival of the princess, who was only an enemy of all of them.
    For the priest, the golden princess was the one and only main heroine.
    Everyone else was unworthy of his respect, no matter how strong they were.

    actually his skill was described as 90% damage reduction in-game.

    Sorry, I meant to type in-story. Rin called it like that. Though I guess that's only from the POV of the MC.

    Isn't Escanor much, much faster than Servants? Pretty sure he takes this easily.
