Even More Awesome Stands

SPOILER ALERT!!! CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM ALL PARTS OF JOJO. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

Hello fellow Jojo fans! It’s time for us to take a look at some more awesome stands. I hope you guys are ready for truly crazy abilities. Now, let’s strike a pose, and have a great time!

  • Purple Haze Stand User: Pannacotta Fugo (Part 5 Golden Wind) Type: Close-Range Appearance: A humanoid creature with a purple body, stitched lips, diamond patterns, a roman helmet, and transparent visor. First Appearance: Golden Wind Chapter 12  Personality: This stand is emotionally unstable, and will often lash out with violence without a seconds notice. Ability: Killer Infection: The stand houses a deadly flesh-eating virus in the 3 bulbs on each hand. The bulbs break upon impact, and the virus will surround its body. Those infected by the disease will turn into organic goo in 30 seconds. This also rots the person’s body from the inside out. The user isn’t immune to this effect, and must be extremely careful when using it. The range of the virus is shortened when exposed to light.

Purple Haze is an extremely dangerous stand that has only been used once in the series. Due to its incredibly lethal ability, Fugo only uses it as a last resort, and the effects are horrific.

  • Pearl Jam: Stand User: Tonio Trussardi (Part 4 Diamond is Unbreakable) Appearance: A fusion of a pearl onion and a tomato with a small body and sharp teeth. Ability: Curative Cooking: The Italian chef uses this stand to cure all kinds of ailments when incorporated into various meals. First Appeared: Diamond is Unbreakable Chapter 10 Let’s Go Eat Some Italian Food. 

In my opinion, this is one of the coolest stands in the entire series. I love anything that has to do with great food, and the episode where this is first introduced still makes me smile to this day. Watch the episode, and you won’t be sorry!

More Awesome TV Tropes

Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another Tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some juicy pop knowledge. Now, let’s begin!

  • Advancing Boss of Doom: This is an often annoying trope that is used in multiple video game genres. It deals with a boss that will keep moving towards the player, without stopping. Some examples include; The Mecha Dragon from Megaman 2. This is the first boss of Wily’s castle, and it is tough! You start by jumping from platform to platform, and then it shows up. It chases you for a while, and then finally stops to battle you. Also, if you miss any platform, you die immediately. Next, we have Heavy Lobster from Kirby Super Star. This giant mechanical lobster chases Kirby through the halls of the Halberd. Lastly, we have the Demon Wall from Final Fantasy IV. The boss fights you, and will continuously move towards the party.

  • One-Hit Kill: An incredibly popular trope that’s used in multiple forms of media. It deals with an attack, or power, that destroys their opponent in a single hit. Some examples include; The Boomerang from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. In this game, The Boomerang is the most powerful weapon available. Unlike in other games where it just stuns enemies, in this game it deals ridiculous amounts of damage, and can kill the final boss in a single hit. Next, we have The Home Run Bat from the Super Smash Bros series. This item is immensely powerful, and using a smash attack with it is almost always an instant K.O. Lastly, we have Die For Me from Persona 4. This is Alice’s ultimate attack, and has a 80% chance of instantly killing the target.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • Socrethar by Wrath Sos Dovah Type: Warlock Legendary Minion Tribe: Demon  Appearance: An incredibly cool looking red demon with chaotic powers. Mana Cost: 9 Attack: 9 Health: 7 Effect: Lifesteal. Your adjacent minions have Taunt and Lifesteal.

Here we have an immensely strong Warlock minion with a very good effect. Lifesteal is a great tool at the Warlock class’ disposal, and this minion acts like a buffed up version of Dire Wolf Alpha. Keep up the great work Wrath!

  • Draconic Fluency by Iouxyl Type: Mage Common Spell Appearance: A Dragonborn solider with glowing blue magic. Mana Cost: 1 Effect: Add a random Dragon to your hand. If you’re holding a Dragon, this costs (0). 

This is a perfect card for the upcoming expansion, and it has great Dragon support. It essentially is a Dragon’s Roar for Mages, and could be a meta-defining card. Keep up the great work!

More Crappy Book Covers

Hello fellow Book Lovers! It’s time for another Crappy Cover post! I hope you guys are ready to cringe and laugh profusely. Now, let’s begin!

  •  Angry House by Alexis Kennedy (February 1st, 2018) Genres: Horror and Ghost Fiction Pages: 244 Brief Summary: A widowed writer moves to the countryside to an old White House. The house holds a terrible secret, and the writer must learn this the hard way.

I really like the premise of this book, but the cover is complete trash. It depicts a shadowy figure that closely resembles death. There’s also a horrible Jpeg of flames that surround the title of the book. In conclusion the cover gives missed potential to an otherwise fascinating story.

  • Blood of Our Fathers by Sonny Girard (July 28th, 2010) Genres: Crime Thriller, Crime Fiction, Literary Fiction 592 Pages Quick Summary: A reformed mafia member tries to restart his fractured life.

Another wonderful concept for a book completely destroyed by an absolutely shitty cover. The art looks like it was done in about 5 minutes, and it smells very amateurish. It’s just a picture of a gun with a couple of bullet holes surrounding it.
