Noriaki Kakyoin

Kakyoin wields the Stand Hierophant Green, which has the power to extend it's limbs to an unlimited distance. Initially a student who has traveled to Egypt, Dio Brando sensed his Stand powers and asked him for a demonstration, which turned out to be a fight. Afterwards, Kakyoin is brainwashed by Dio using buds from his own cells into following his will, which is to kill Jotaro Kujo.

The manner in which he carries out his assault upon Jotaro differs from the Manga and Anime. In the manga (and the videogame), the assault happens inside a clinic of a school. In the Anime, he attacks Jotaro by possessing the body of a female student with his Stand. He is defeated by Jotaro either way. Jotaro soon discovers that Kakyoin was under the influence of Dio. Jotaro then used his own Stand, Star Platinum, to remove Dio's implant buds from Kakyoin's head in spite of the risk that it may openly attack both of them. Kakyoin is freed from Dio's slavery afterwards.

Kakyoin? That has to be one of the oddest names I've ever heard. Still, any dude who can pull off fighting in a Gaku-Ran is cool in my book. He's a bit odd at first, but definitely has an original personality & fighting style to the genre. His role in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure story is also pretty cool... no spoilers here.

In comparison to other characters from JJBA, Kakyoin is somewhat of a sleeper design. He isn't as charismatic, flashy, or as exciting as other designs from the series. However, his stand is pretty interesting and his appearance in the JJBA fighting games were well done and pretty memorable.
