This article is about the Stand. For the character, see Foo Fighters.

Foo Fighters (フー・ファイターズ Fū Faitāzu) is a Stand featured in Stone Ocean.

Foo Fighters allows bundles of plankton to exist in a humanoid form. It adopts a personality, along with the nickname F.F.; siding with the allies of the story.

Appearance

Foo Fighters takes two main appearances. Naked, it is a tall, dark, robotic humanoid of masculine proportions, and an alien visage.

Later, it maintains the appearance of the dead prisoner Atroe; a woman of average height and slim build.

As F.F.'s identity develops due to its experiences with Jolyne, the true form of its Stand takes on a more human appearance starting to resemble the body she took over while still retaining some of the features of its older form.

Personality

Main article: Foo Fighters

Highly intelligent; originally commanded with a task by Enrico Pucci, Jolyne Cujoh helps it to discover a consciousness and identity. Its nickname is "F.F.".

Abilities

Foo Fighters is a unique mix of plankton colony and Stand. It is able in close combat and possesses a set of useful abilities. Although Foo Fighters is particularly resilient to physical attacks, it is very dependent on a constant water supply to keep the colony in water and breaks down the moment it is dehydrated[1].

Plankton Colony Form

Foo Fighters's peculiar nature as a sentient colony of plankton gives it several abilities.

First and foremost, Foo Fighters' nature means that it has no physical weakness. There is no limb to hurt or vital point to strike in order to kill it and thus it is impervious to conventional attacks. Only by damaging the whole colony can Foo Fighters be threatened. Although fragile individually, the colony can muster enough strength to pry open an automatic door[2].

As a hive mind, Foo Fighter is able to produce sub-bodies by splitting the colony in several like-minded but independent parts[1][3]. This ability allows Foo Fighter to effectively fight multiple opponents and generally act stealthily in the middle of battle. Even if a large majority of the plankton dies, only one needs to survive in order for Foo Fighters to be able to regenerate[4]. As long as there is water, the plankton colony can rapidly multiply[3], creating a new part of Foo Fighters rapidly and giving it great regeneration ability. With enough water, Foo Fighters can even cover a whole room and use its mass to attack[5].

It also means that ordinary humans can see the body[6].

On the other hand, Foo Fighter is extremely susceptible to dehydration. If its moisture is sucked away by dry matter, the plankton colony rapidly dies and it will disappear. Foo Fighter thus needs constant access to water in order to survive.[5]

Body Invasion

By infiltrating someone's body, Foo Fighter can take over their consciousness and have access to their memories[1]. That way, it can wear their skin as a disguise to infiltrate human society. It took over the corpse of Atroe and spends the rest of Stone Ocean impersonating her. It can also shape its host to its liking[7] and contort itself beyond what a human can do[8].

The parasitism allows Foo Fighters to survive without a constant intake of water, but it reduces its agility. Moreover it becomes susceptible to bleeding out and losing the moisture anyway.[9]

Water Control

Foo Fighters can manipulate water to some extent, with enough control to create a square mirror out of one third of a cup of water[10].

Plankton Shot

Inside a host, Foo Fighters can shoot small parts of itself as if it was using a gun (this is later shown to incorporate pistol parts into its hand)[11]. The bits of plankton colony can invade someone's body and take control of it.[12] The shots have enough strength to pierce through skin.[13]

Wound Seal

The plankton can help seal wounds, preventing someone from bleeding out and potentially saving them from dying.[14]

Trivia

  • Araki tried to draw something insectoid or reptilian. He thinks it looks more like a chameleon, a mutant, or a space alien than a microscopic organism.[15]
