Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Scary Monsters: Scary Monsters is a Stand that is bound to Diego's body at all times; the ability itself stolen from a Dr. Fernindad via the Left Eye of the Holy Corpse. Since it is bound to his body, it can fight hand-to-hand with other Stands and damage them, despite being a normal human.
    • Infection: When Diego touches or scratches an object, they become infected with a virus that slowly transforms them into dinosaurs. These said dinosaurs are always under his will and will obey his commands. Each dinosaur created varies in size and power depending on the object or organism he infects.
    • Transformation: With Scary Monsters, Diego can transform parts of his body or himself completely into a dinosaur. Even without transforming, he gains traits of a dinosaur, such as enhanced strength, speed, stamina, and senses. He also gains a digestive system that allows him to eat, digest, and regurgitate normally impossible objects such as rocks.
    • Fossilization: When Diego infects something, he also has the choice of turning them into a hardened state or shell, similar to a fossil. While it hasn't been used much, he was capable of fusing objects together to create a camoflague and transformed two guards into dinosaur-themed lamps.
