After becoming a vampire and later a Stand user, Dio has gathered around him many minions and is responsible for many major events of the series, from the death of Jonathan Joestar to the Joestar Family 's sudden acquisition of Stand power, and his legacy persists throughout the series. Dio is the father of Giorno Giovanna , the protagonist of Part 5, as well as a handful of other illegitimate offspring. DIO dons a jacket with a tight tank-top underneath, as well as chaps with an exposed crotch. His face is now in full-view, and on his head is a heart-shaped circlet to match his knee guards. This is his form during the beginning of the DIO's World story arc. In most depictions of him, DIO's outfit is tinted orange or yellow. He also wears a necklace covering his neck scar and heart motifs above his feet and on his pant legs, but he quickly stopped sporting them after his first stairway confrontation with Polnareff.

A long-running shonen manga series like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is going to be packed with cool villains big and small, and the Joestar family has faced its fair share of bad guys. The next two parts introduce Yoshikage Kira and Diavolo as villains, but what if some fans want Dio back? As far as the anime is concerned thus far, Dio is completely gone, and there are mixed reasons to want him to come back somehow. Not counting the bizarre content of the later arcs of the manga, what are some good reasons to want Dio back? Or should he stay in the past? For some fans, the sheer nostalgia factor may be enough to bring back a character like Dio Brando. Nostalgia can be a powerful thing, and some creative decisions may be based on the fans' or creator's desire to relive the past and enjoy it. Dio is a time-honored villain, and that gives some credence to the idea of bringing him back for more action later in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. More than a few fans would rejoice if they heard news like that.
The poor son of an abusive alcoholic who worked his mother to death, Dio holds an inordinate amount of enmity toward others. As the series' most prolific villain, his defining trait is his staunch ambition, which manifests in a peerless desire for power, no matter the cost. When beginning the series Dio is the character that Araki looked forward to drawing the most. He also revealed that he had not thought up a weakness for the character, and that it was difficult to come up with a way for Dio to be defeated. In regard to Dio's characterization, Araki said that he was inspired by FBI profiling of serial killers, admitting that in a way he thinks they must be incredibly strong to be able to commit the heinous crimes that they do. How serial killers control their victims through psychological manipulation interested Araki as well, a trait similar to how Dio uses his charisma to ensure his followers to do his bidding.
