I'm the one doin' the talking here! I'm the one in control!

—Mario Zucchero

Mario Zucchero (マリオ・ズッケェロ Mario Zukkero) is a minor antagonist featured in Vento Aureo.

Zucchero is a Passione operative and Sale's partner, but also a Stand User. He ambushes Bucciarati's Gang with his Soft Machine for the possession of Polpo's treasure.


Zucchero is a man of average build and height, keeping his hair attached in a strange looking ponytail.

Zucchero wears a spiked jumpsuit.


Mario Zucchero is a rude individual, violently threatening Bruno Bucciarati when he has him cornered in his boat and repeatedly shouting curses in the process.

Zucchero is also reckless, suddenly jumping out of a car he was driving as soon as he heard of Polpo's treasure.


Main article: Soft Machine

Zucchero's Stand, Soft Machine, has the ability to deflate people and objects by stabbing them with its short sword.


Vento Aureo (2001)

Introduced as one of the pursuers of Polpo's treasure, Zucchero attacked the boat that Bucciarati's gang was on before deflating everyone except Leone Abbacchio and Bucciarati with his Stand.

He is soon defeated by Bucciarati after getting his head "zipped off" in a ranged surprise attack. Later, Bucciarati's gang tortures him by hanging his head off a fish hook while having his eye roasted by a pair of spectacles to interrogate him on the whereabouts of his partner.

Thanks to Abbacchio's Stand, the group learned that Zucchero has already given off their location and the rest of the plan involving Capri Island. After Sale's defeat he was left unconscious on the boat.
