However many new anime fans have come to associate him with Avdol and after voicing him Miyake would get more important anime roles. Araki jokingly attempted this with the Sun arc. His intention was to make Arabia Fats and his Stand come off as so powerful that readers would be mislead into thinking it would last for several weeks. In reality Arabia Fats and his Stand are outsmarted fairly easily and have one of the shortest arcs in this part.

Then he gets killed again for real in one hit, before the fight even started. Magician's Red's power is fire-based. Screw This, I'm Out of Here! As soon as Avdol sees DIO's hair tentacles, he jumps through a window and high tails it rather than join or fight him.

For some reason, Avdol seems to know a lot of DIO's assassins by reputation, and has at least heard a bit about their powers. Spell My Name with an "S": Downplayed, Avdol keeps a stone faced calmness, but he's able to emote well with his companions and ham it up when necessary.

He also represents the Magician's being Tarot I, Avdol is the first person to properly use his Stand, the first person to start a fight in Stardust Crusaders, the first to meet DIO, and the first of the Crusaders to die.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Part 3--Stardust Crusaders, Vol. 1
Word of GodAvdol is supposed to be in his late 20s, but his experiences with Stands along with Araki's art-style back then made his face harden, making him look much older than he is. Noriaki Kakyoin Noriaki Kakyoin Stand: Wields the Stand Hierophant Green, named after the Hierophant card, which can generate emerald-based attacks and stretch itself.

According to the interview with Araki in Jo Jonium Volume 12, his first name was actually supposed to be Tenmei, but his editor went with Noriaki.
He has a mullet and that's fairly normal, but then there's the large, wavy strand of hair residing at the right side of his face. His hairstyle in his debut scene in the manga however looked even more ridiculous, which was an alternative costume for him in the fighting games.
The Villain in Name Only variant when he was introduced. Kakyoin was never evil, just brainwashed by DIO's flesh buds. Bad Powers, Good People: His Stand grants him the power of possessing people, but Kakyoin himself is the most genuinely nice person in the main cast of Part 3.
Though only in comparison to the other main characters. The art style of Part 3 doesn't make him look particularly "pretty", but he's less "built like a tractor" than every other guy in this series and he has quite a few female admirers In-Universe. Fanartists like to portray him as a completely straight example. This is, however, played quite straight when Araki draws him in his new art style.
Blood from the Mouth: During his dying moments, Kakyoin's first attempt at firing his Last Breath Bullet is interrupted because he coughs up blood.
His second attempt is successful, though, and he dies just after it hits the clock tower. The first of DIO's mind slaves that was introduced.

He likes to roll cherries around on his tongue before eating them, a trait closely copied by Rubber Soul when he disguises himself as Kakyoin, but it turns out that his partners had never noticed it until after the battle; as such, he only does it exactly once onscreen.
Kakyoin is handsome, calm, polite, and friendly, which comes in handy, because he usually is the one who has to clean up Jotaro's messes. Not as much as Jotaro, but he does attract some female admirers of his own. Crazy Enough to Work: His plan to defeat Steely Dan's The Lovers is to have Hierophant Green and Silver Chariot shrink to a microscopic level and enter Joseph's blood stream to perform brain surgery Hierophant Green can disassemble itself into tendrils to attack and block. Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Where's Caesar was proud and prone to acting on emotion, but preferred to look as a suave lady charmer, Kakyoin is a smart, strategic fighter who doesn't hide behind a fake persona.
Also while Caesar was antagonistic towards Joseph due to their bloodlines and clashing personalities, Kakyoin is antagonistic only because he's being brainwashed by DIO. Both die in similar ways but different reasons. Caesar goes out boldly, refusing to abandon his pride as he passes the torch onto Joseph, while Kakyoin figures out DIO's abilities and dies exposing it. Interestingly Joseph arrives after Caesar dies whereas he witnesses Kakyoin's death firsthand.

Joseph straight up states in his battle with DIO that Kakyoin didn't die in vain. Defeat Means Friendship ; Justified. Kakyoin was never evil, only brainwashed. In addition, Kakyoin is willing to join Jotaro's dangerous mission because he had never met anyone else that could see his Stand, and is overjoyed to have friends that could understand him. He has a mullet aside from his bang.
Exactly What I Aimed At: DIO initially mocks his poor aim, but it becomes clear that Kakyoin wasn't trying to land a killing blow, but instead reveal the secret of The World's power despite being too injured to speak. Notes that he doesn't feel like he can relate to people without Stands, and thus never really had the desire to make friends most of his life.
To Jotaro, in both fighting style and appearance, with JoJonium going into detail that Kakyoin is the honor role type student to Jotaro's Delinquent and having a long range stand in contrast to Jotaro's short range.
Araki's design choice for their uniforms also showcases their foil, with Kakyoin having a tidy, all buttoned-up gakuran, and Jotaro having it wide open and heavily accessorized. He also foils Polnareff, being the calm, collected, and strategic guy, as opposed to the latter's reckless and hot-blooded personality. His Stand, Hierophant Green, has a target on its stomach.
