THE WORLD! This time is only mine!

~ THE WORLD's battle cry


Diego Brando, commonly referred to as Dio, is the final antagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part VII: Steel Ball Run. Funny Valentine encounters him in one of the many parallel worlds after the death of the original Diego Brando. After the President's death, this new Diego is tasked by Valentine to take the completed Holy Corpse through Manhattan in the final sector of the Steel Ball Run race and store it in a sealed chamber. He is challenged by Johnny Joestar in the final sector as he carries the Corpse.
