Gold Experience is a humanoid Stand of slender build and average height, like Giorno. The top of its head is similar to that of a typical helmet of a soldier, with curved markings similar to the letter J coming down from the eyes on both sides. There are stylized wings on its shoulders and large ladybugs all over its body.
Its design is based on the scarab beetle, as a symbol of creation in ancient Egypt, and on ladybugs, symbolizing regeneration, with its angel wings as a symbol of peace.
It wears slings, similar to the suspenders on DIO's pants.
Life Giver: Gold Experience is capable of changing or converting inorganic objects into living organisms (flora and fauna) by transitioning through a form looking like Gold Experience itself (Koichi's luggage takes the form of its head before changing into a frog). A pen can be turned into a snake, a bullet into a beetle and so on. Giorno frequently produces small life forms (frogs, snakes, flies) and plants which he apparently has control over. He needs to touch something with its fists to trigger its abilities. When any of these are attacked indiscriminately, the creation will not be harmed at all; instead, the attacker receives the injury they would have inflicted, which can kill them. Though only shown once, Gold Experience can also speed up an already-existing plant's life through its ability, causing it to wither and expire immediately as a result of a greatly shortened lifespan.
Life Shot: Gold Experience's ability can also be applied to living individuals, causing their thought processes to greatly accelerate. This was employed in battles to cause enemies to lose temporal coordination of their bodies (their body cannot catch up with their minds). This also increases and amplifies the reception of the senses in one's body. For example, any pain that is felt would seem to last much longer than usual due to the heightened senses.
Flesh and Organ Creation: Later on, Giorno developed (or discovered) Gold Experience's ability to produce organic components of the body (e.g. transforming bullets stuck in someone's body into the very blood vessels and organs they destroyed) - evidently, these transformations are permanent. Giorno discovers this new ability after having his throat and foot "cubed" off by Baby Face's ability. Giorno subsequently takes up the "healer" role of the party. Unlike Josuke, however, Giorno can also heal himself. As it was not originally designed for healing, the process is quite painful.
High Potential Versatility: One of its most distinguishing features is its extremely high Development Potential characteristic, with its life and nature related abilities showing little to no limit over its usage and descriptions only scratching the surface of what it can do. While most other Stands have shown their own amazing usage and ability via tandem of acuity of wit and skill of a user with their Stand's powers and rules, Giorno has shown a wide application of Gold Experience's vast expanse of ability, be it to accelerate the growth of other floral life, use trees and other flora to entangle and capture opponents, or even reverse transform his creations in disguise to ambush opponents.
