—Ringo Roadagain

Mandom (マンダム Mandamu?) is the Stand of Ringo Roadagain, featured in Steel Ball Run.

Appearance

Mandom takes the shape of a head as the centre of what looks like an enlarged, wrist-based item of metallic jewellery, splitting and extending at its ends into long, flowing tendrils. Dark, its face is featureless except where patterned by a number of small spheres resembling eyes; joined by lines to form a pattern of horizontally oriented lozenges.

Its design was inspired by the "Major League Training Brace" from the Star of the Giants manga series.[2]

Ability

Time Reversal: By turning a hand on his wristwatch, Mandom will rewind time by exactly 6 seconds; returning everything to how it was 6 seconds ago. However nearby individuals affected by this ability will partially remember the events of those rewound seconds. The ability has a 6 second cool-down period after activation, this is to prevent Ringo from exploiting Mandom by rewinding beyond 6 seconds.

Even though the process of rewinding back 6 seconds is supposedly instant and unnoticeable according to all individuals effected, Time Reversal is represented by everything being rewound. Similar to replaying a video in reverse.

Trivia

  • The wristwatch that Ringo wears, acts as a psychological switch. Ringo cannot activate Mandom without it.
  • Aside from the 2nd Diego Brando's THE WORLD, Mandom is the only time-manipulation Stand belonging to a minor antagonist.
  • Mandom is a Japanese brand of perfumes and deodorants. Ringo and his Stand's name are likely to be inspired by their TV commercial featuring Charles Bronson and the song "Lovers of the World";[3] named "男の世界" ("True Man's World") in its Japanese release; the lyrics of which mention "living in the world of Mandom".
  • Mandom makes a sharp mechanical switch sound when activating it's main ability. [4]
