|“||"The Sun" card's Stand... He was a formidable opponent, but once you've figured out his trick, he's just another idiot.||”|
—Jotaro Kujo about Arabia Fats
Arabia Fats is a short overweight man who has short spiky hair. He is seen wearing a T-shirt bearing a rising sun symbol much like the Imperial Japanese flag.
His real personality is unknown.
Arabia Fats had been following the Joestar group up into the desert in a car equipped with air-conditioner. He stayed camouflaged by using a mirror device attached to his car that reflected the sand's image in the desert, so the group couldn't notice him.
Suffering with the heat produced by Arabia's Stand, the group then suspected the sun itself to be a Stand. Believing it to be a Stand, Noriaki Kakyoin attacked it but received a counterattack from Sun, confirming the group's suspicion. Giving trouble to the Joestar group at first, Arabia Fats was discovered when the gang noticed that there were two of the same rock, with their shadows pointing at opposite directions, thus meaning one was being reflected. Jotaro Kujo used Star Platinum's precision to identify where exactly Arabia Fats was and instantly defeated him after throwing a rock to his face. Finding Arabia Fats unconscious, the group claimed that his Stand was rather childish and Fats an idiot for using such a trick, with Jotaro wanting to believe his intelligence was affected by the heat while Joseph lamented for not getting to know Arabia Fats's and Sun's names.
In Video Games
Arabia Fats posses a special mini-game, as the player takes control of Star Platinum's vision and needs to find his hideout and throw a rock on it before Arabia Fats hits the player with Sun's rock; the player needs to do this four times to deplete Arabia Fats's life bar. After the mini-game, Arabia Fats appears on a cutscene, knocked out in the sand as the group states that his Stand was rather childish.
- Arabia Fats only has one panel frame in the manga, being the character with the least on-page appearances of Part III (the second being Midler, with only two manga panels). Arabia Fats is also the character with the least dialogue, his only speech being his scream after being hit by Jotaro's rock. Arabia Fats is given extra dialogue in the PS1 adaption of the arcade game.
