Dio Brando, also referred to as DIO, is one of the main antagonists in the Japanese manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Within the fandom, the character is most well-known for his over-the-top personality and gratuitously arrogant attitudes.


Dio Brando first appeared in the first chapter of the original manga series, during the events of Part 1: Phantom Blood. In the opening chapter, Dio gets adopted by the Joestar family, a powerful clan comprised of the main protagonists in the series, following the death of his biological father Dario Brando[1]. In the following chapters, Dio spends his years tormenting his adoptive brother Jonathan Joestar by placing him in alienation from his father and friends, stealing a kiss from his girlfriend and getting his dog burned alive. As the story progresses, Dio turns into a cruel and ruthless villain as a vampire with the help of an ancient stone mask, though his reign of terror gets ultimately stopped by Jonathan and his allies. After a noticeable period of absence in Part II: Battle Tendency, Dio Brando makes his return in Part III: Stardust Crusaders as "DIO," fully resurrected as the archenemy of the Joestar family with the power to stop time using his supernatural power (otherwise known as The Stand) of The World.
