Find Polpo's Fortune! (ポルポの遺産を狙え! Porupo no Isan o Nerae!) is the fifth episode of Golden Wind and the one hundred eighteenth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime. The episode covers from Chapter 456 to Chapter 458 of the original manga.

Summary

This section requires expansion.

As Bucciarati and Giorno walk in the streets of Napoli, Bucciarati describes to him how their gang Passione works. The gang is split into independant teams with different works, and working under "lieutenants", officers within the gang having authority over several teams, and above the rest, the Boss. The Boss is very secretive and no one knows his name or his face, with many of Passione's member following suit to avoid being targeted. To move up the ranks, what Bucciarati claims is essential for the two of them is a team one can trust.

Meanwhile, Polpo's apparent suicide is creating waves in the underworld. Two of Passione's members, Sale and Mario Zucchero, are discussing the consequences of that death. Sale explains that rumor has it that Polpo had a stash of treasures that is now open, and that Bucciarati is the most likely gangster to know about it. Zucchero jumps out of the car, eager to take the treasure.

Bucciarati and Giorno arrive at the restaurant the team is awaiting them in. One of the team members, Guido Mista, is loudly complaining about the four slices of cake they had been served (the number 4 being unlucky for him). Meanwhile, Pannacotta Fugo helps out Narancia Ghirga with his math. When Narnancia gets the answer incorrect, Fugo grabs a fork and violently stabs Narnancia in the cheek with it, grabs him by his head and slams him into the table as Mista asks Leone Abbacchio if he's going to eat his slice of cake. Narnancia then pulls out his knife, threatening Fugo. When Bucciarati comes, they resume their activity and ignore Giorno while he formally introduces himself. When Bucciarati is called away because of a call, Abbacchio urinates into a teapot and serves it to Giorno, starting to victimize him. At the same time, Bucciarati learns about Polpo's death. When he returns, he sees Giorno gulping down his cup, to the team's astonishment. Giorno has turned one of his teeth into a jellyfish absorbing all the liquid, and manages to impress his teammates with his confidence. Bucciarati then immediately tells the gang to move. On their way to the docks, Giorno can see that Bucciarati is a popular man; at the same time, Bucciarati is disturbed by the pleas of the citizens against the drug trade plaguing the city.

In the docks, Bucciarati rents a yacht while Narancia gathers some snacks and the team set sails toward the sea. When Bucciarati deems that they are sufficiently far from the coast, he tells his team that Polpo has died, that there is indeed a treasure hidden in Napoli, and that he intends to take it and use it to become a lieutenant. Amidst the excitement among the gang, Narancia is suddenly pulled away from sight and disappears although there is nowhere he could hide. In turn, Mista and Fugo disappear too. Bucciarati, Abbacchio and Giorno find themselves cornered, but when they begin to wonder whether their teammates are dead, Giorno assures that they are alive because the fly he's created from Narancia's shoe is still seeking its proprietor. Abbacchio has the perfect Stand to solve the situation, but he doesn't trust Giorno and is reluctant to summon it. Determined, Giorno makes a gamble and recklessly exposes himself to an attack. As a result, he is stabbed and dragged away from sight by an enemy Stand. Impressed despite himself, Abbacchio finally summons his Moody Blues.

    • Team Bucciarati is now sitting in an isolated corner of an occupied restaurant instead of the middle of an empty room.
      • Since the front door is no longer positioned opposite of the team's table, Bucciarati enters into the scene leaning against an entrance archway from the restaurant's main room.

    • Abbacchio is seen taking a slice of shortcake while Mista rants about the four slices.
    • While Mista asks Abbacchio if he's going to eat his slice, Fugo can be heard slamming Narancia's face into the table a few more times; the table is also shown shaking each time he does it.
    • Bucciarati is moved by a phone call away from Giorno during the meeting and learns about Polpo's death through the call. This is also when he's approached by Ms. Menini and her friend.

    • Giorno internally notices that Bucciarati indeed has the trust of a number of citizens during this conversation.
