Dio / Neo Dio
dio-worldheroes-portrait.gif (7979 bytes)


Dio is the final boss of World Heroes 2. Because of the failure of his previous creation, Geegus, Damudo created a new, stronger, better artificial soldier: Dio. However, Dio developed his own consciousness and now roams different eras, killing many people. "Neo Dio" is an improved version of Dio that returns to exact revenge. Neo Dio's name translates into "New God" (and is ironically spelled similarly to Neo Geo). 

Fun Facts: Neo Dio parodies some of Dio Brando's lines from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, including "Wryyy!" and "Muda muda!". Visually, Neo Dio shares a resemblance to Ikuro Hashizawa when he transforms into Baoh, and is apparently based on the "Ultimate Life Forms" of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (hence some of his win quotes).

World Heroes Perfect, Neogeo Battle Coliseum, Card Fighters Clash DS 


Page Updated:  June 30th, 2020

Neo Dio's design was kinda laughable in the original World Heroes series, but SNK completely revamped and reinvented him in NeoGeo Battle Coliseum. Yeah, his "darker" version is obviously a lot cooler... badass actually. After such a long absence (since the World Heroes series never took off), it was totally unexpected and pretty awesome to see Neo Dio actually make a comeback. His new moveset and animations in NGBC are extremely well done.

On a side note, Neo Dio's redesign shares some similarities with Gill. I guess Gods don't really need to wear clothes.
