D'Arby the Gambler (ダービー・ザ・ギャンブラー Dābī za Gyanburā) is the twenty-second story arc in Stardust Crusaders.

It narrates the Joestar Group's predicament as they get cornered in several gambles against Daniel J. D'Arby, who can steal souls.

Summary

On the outskirts of Cairo, Joseph is unsuccessful at having people recognize a photo of DIO's mansion, until one man says that he does recognize it. That man demands that they bet on something and Polnareff complies. However he loses the bet and gets his soul stolen from him. The gambler reveals himself as Daniel J. D'Arby, user of Osiris who can steal the soul of anyone who recognizes defeat in any form. D'Arby then tells the group that the only way to get Polnareff's soul back is to win it. Joseph then challenges D'Arby in a game where they put coins in a near full glass of water and whoever makes the glass spill loses. Joseph tries to cheat but D'Arby is a better cheater and wins Joseph's soul. Jotaro then challenges D'Arby at his best game: Poker.

Jotaro first disables D'Arby's hand because he saw him cheating during the deal, and calls a random child to serve as a dealer. Unbeknownst to Jotaro and Avdol, everyone in their place is on D'Arby's payroll, and D'Arby wins the first hand. During the second hand, Jotaro doesn't look at his cards, which fazes D'Arby a little. Jotaro then repeatedly makes objects appears in his hands and quietly raises the stacks to ridiculous amounts, accepting to bet the souls of everyone. D'Arby suspects that Jotaro has cheated somehow and can't handle the pressure. When Jotaro bets the soul of his mother in exchange for information on DIO's Stand, D'Arby becomes mad from the pressure and releases the souls of everyone. However he is too unstable to answer any question.
