—Gold Experience Requiem
Gold Experience Requiem is a humanoid Stand of a height and build similar to Giorno's. Its head extends into pointed tips with the back of the head hollow, giving it the appearance of a crown. It has an extended ridge collar on the back of its neck and several indentations and various other patterns covering its body.
When it first appears, it wears the Arrow on its forehead; which eventually falls to the ground.
Nullification of Cause and Effect: Gold Experience Requiem's ability is to turn anything, including its opponent's attack and willpower, back to the state of "zero". Hence, it is virtually invincible, as all "supposed" actions created by an opponent would have been reset (back to point zero). It is mentioned by Giorno himself that he is unsure of the exact workings and limits of Requiem's powers, but it has been shown that its range of influence extends from finger beams, surface contact, and to even being in the mere attention of Requiem.
Requiem's abilities are seen by some fans to be the opposite of King Crimson's: King Crimson erases the "cause" and keeps the "effect" (i.e. time where a bullet would hit him is erased, causing the bullet to warp past him), while Requiem keeps the "cause" but erases the "effect", causing endless scenarios where actions and initiatives are started, but the effects of such does not occur (as shown when Requiem completely halted King Crimson's cause erasing ability).
If the opponent is "killed" by the Stand itself, then they will also continuously experience death, as they will die but repeatedly return to point "zero" (i.e Diavolo's endless death loops).
This ability renders Giorno essentially and absolutely untouchable by anything that would try to hurt or kill him and is perhaps the absolute strongest form of defense in existence.
Life Giver: Despite its transformation, Gold Experience Requiem appears to have retained its life-giving abilities after evolving. This is demonstrated briefly when Giorno breaks a column and a piece of it turns into a scorpion that then attacks Diavolo.
- In All-Star Battle, it is shown that Gold Experience Requiem functions normally under the time-accelerating effect of Made in Heaven, and that Giorno remains immune to the effect as long as he has Requiem active.
- After the Stand's first appearance, the Arrow tip falls from its head; leaving ambiguity as to whether Giorno has retained it.
- Eyes of Heaven introduces a Stand, The World Over Heaven, capable of nullifying Gold Experience Requiem's ability. This marks TWOH the only Stand known able to defeat Gold Experience Requiem's seemingly invincible power.
