Story Arcs

Battle Tendency

ACDC first appears inside the stone pillar alongside Wham and Cars. He awakens shortly after Wham kills all of the Nazi officers in the area and transfers the blood to them. The three begin to discuss their goals about obtaining the Red Stone of Aja and soon meet Joseph Joestar and his group. However, the Pillar Men deem the group no threat and continue on outside until they are stopped by Joseph. ACDC and Cars then give Wham time to fight Joseph and continue on outside. After a minute passes, ACDC comes to check on Wham. He eats the dynamite that Joseph was going to use before it goes off. He then places his Wedding Ring into Joseph’s throat and leaves alongside Cars and Wham.

After some time, the Pillar Men learn that Lisa Lisa is holding the Red Stone of Aja and begin to search Venice. Twenty seven days after his initial encounter with Joseph, he encounters Loggins who was waiting for Joseph and finishes him off in one kick to the chest. Before he could leave, Joseph intercepts him and the two begin to fight. ACDC is initially surprised by Joseph progress but still deems him no match for himself. Joseph, however, takes advantage of Master Loggins body and cuts of ACDC’s arm with wiring. ACDC then goes into a crying fit which both surprises and disturbs Joseph. ACDC then quickly regains his composure and uses Loggins’ arms as a replacement. He then reveals his Flame Mode to Joseph and soon takes the upper hand in the fight by disabling and seeing through Joseph’s plan to use a hidden rope to send the Ripple to him. However, Joseph tricks him by using the Cut and Restore Rope Trick and sends the Ripple directly into his body seemingly killing him. However, ACDC brain survives, grows tentacles and attaches itself to Joseph’s back.

He manages to possess Suzie Q after her conversation with Joseph and sends the Red Stone of Aja to Cars in Switzerland. He tries to turn Suzie Q into a bomb into order to hit everyone with his blood but Joseph and Caesar attack her body and heart at the exact same time in order to keep her unharmed while simultaneously forcing ACDC out. ACDC the tries to cling himself to Joseph once again but is vanquished by the sunlight.
