|“||The 'time for Heaven'. It has finally arrived...||”|
This Stand is the final metamorphosis in a chain following Whitesnake and C-Moon; one of the very last elements of the plan referenced in DIO's Diary. It was considered by DIO to be the ultimate Stand and the key to achieving "heaven".
Made in Heaven takes the appearance of a thin, masculine humanoid fused at its waist to the front end of a horse (resembling a two-headed, two-legged centaur). A large cable, forming a clean arch, joins the humanoid half between its shoulder blades to the truncated posterior of the horse.
The horse wears blinders and reins, held in the hands of the humanoid half, which wears a collar of long feathers, and a long vine wound around its crown. Its head may be compared to that of the Alien films' Xenomorph; slightly elongated, with a smooth, black surface; embedded with a large clock face in the region of its eyes and nose, with its mouth on its jaw as a piece with the majority of its light or white body.
It has large speedometers also embedded in its body at the side of the joint of the horse's legs and the horse's forehead, with smaller ones on side of the humanoid's shoulders, its forearms, and the back of its hands, and on the horse's blinders.
In contrast with its predecessors, it does not have "GACT" symbols on its body.
Made in Heaven increases the speed or rate of the flow of time; achieved through its ability to control the gravitational forces of the earth, moon, and seemingly the entire universe (in reference to aspects of the theory of relativity).
Additionally, the Stand seems to have retained some of DIO's ability to see into stopped time, as Pucci seemed to be subconsciously able to dodge the spear that Jotaro Kujo had thrown during the stopped time.
Exception for living organisms
It should be noted that while time speeds up for all non-living processes, the biological clocks of the people themselves do not and still remain the same as if time has not accelerated. As shown by the rapid decomposition of Pucci's kills, micro-organisms are the exception and speed up along with everything else, likely due to operating through chemical processes and being too simplistic to possess body clocks.
To those fighting its user, he would appear like he is constantly moving even as he is standing still.
As time continues to travel, the universe will hit a "vanishing point", and a new universe will be created, where everything repeats itself, according to "fate".
The Stand's user may then alter the characteristics of the universe and the fates of the people in the recreated universe and create the perfect world they desire. Anyone that is killed by this Stand in the previous universe will not cease to exist, but simply replaced by a similar substitute, though Pucci states that their souls and personalities will have been erased and that they will appear as completely different people.
The fates of the people cannot change unless Pucci himself performs some action that changes them, though Pucci cannot control how his actions change the fates of others.
Despite being able to speed up time and move at incredible speeds, the user of the Stand is not invincible while doing so. Accelerated time will not enable the user of the Stand to recuperate from his injuries, though it will enable blood to clot faster.
Moreover, Pucci is injured by breathing in too high a concentration of oxygen when Weather Report increased the oxygen concentration in Emporio Alniño's ghost room, perhaps due to his rate of breathing increasing as a side effect of his ability to keep up with the accelerated time.
When the user of this Stand is killed, the universe resets again into an alternate timeline.
- The original name of this Stand was Stairway to Heaven (
天国への階段Suteawei Tu Hevun?), based on the song of the same name by Led Zeppelin. Later, in the tankōbon release, it was changed to Made in Heaven, the name of a single by Freddie Mercury and an album by Queen.
- Interestingly, Made in Heaven shares a completely different design and power than Heaven Ascension DIO's ultimate Stand, The World Over Heaven; despite both having followed the same instructions listed in DIO's diary.
