—Midler (game version)

Midler (ミドラー Midorā?) is a minor antagonist appearing in Part III: Stardust Crusaders.

She challenges the group as they travel by submarine in the Red Sea.

AppearanceEdit

Midler is never seen, except waist-down in two frames of the manga; from which she appears to be a woman of average height and build, wearing a simple dress. At her defeat, Polnareff cannot bear to look at her, having lost all of her teeth when Star Platinum punched them out of her Stand.

Heritage redesignEdit

Midler recieves a complete design for Heritage for the Future. A woman of average height and slim build, she is dressed in the minimal style of a belly dancer.

She wears a headscarf, mouth-veil; bands at her arms, wrists, thighs and ankles; high heels; a bikini-style bra, and a fine, loose wrap at her hips. With dark, curly hair, ~5 stars stand on pins in her headscarf; two stars also forming the cups of her top.

PersonalityEdit

Like Mariah, Midler is flirtatious and lascivious, mentioning that as a cool and quiet man, Jotaro is "her kind of guy". She says that she regrets having to kill him and wishes that they could have been lovers; and that unfortunately, Dio is even more attractive to her.

The group tries to persuade her not to kill them, telling her Jotaro is interested in her sexy voice; angering her, provoking her to tell them to shut up, and that she hates lies.

AbilitiesEdit

Main article: High Priestess

Midler's Stand is High Priestess, possessing mineral materials in order to form shapes large and complex with which she may attack.

SynopsisEdit

Stardust CrusadersEdit

Midler is a famous Stand user (as Avdol knew about her) hired by Dio to kill the Joestar group, infiltrating her Stand on Mohammed Avdol's submarine to trap them in a closed space. Taking the form of different things, her Stand continuously attacks and escapes from the group, while Midler taunts them talking through her Stand. Eventually trapping them in her own Stand's mouth, Midler claims that her teeth are harder than diamonds and tries to crush Jotaro with them, but instead has her teeth punched out by Star Platinum. Jean Pierre Polnareff, wanting to take a look at her, goes to her convulsing body but says it isn't worth to look, because of her now toothless face.

Video GamesEdit

JoJo RPG (SFC)Edit

The events from HIGH PRIESTESS appears on the game with some alterations. Midler is a stewardess on the same plane the team is attack by DEATH 13, and her Stand takes on the shape of the restroom's doorknob. Much like the story, she dosen't appear herself in the game, only her Stand is faced by the heroes.

Heritage for the Future (PS1/DC/Arcade)Edit

Her story mode tells a drastically different tale from her fate in the original manga. She trails Jotaro's group in order to carry out Dio's orders to kill them and successfully wins against them, one by one. After she finally defeats Jotaro himself, she returns to Dio's mansion to report the good news. Cream informs her that Dio needed Joseph or Jotaro's fresh blood, and she is forced to defeat him in order to get past and see Dio. However, when she finally reaches Dio, he reassures her - before declaring that he only needs her blood, as the blood of one more person will enable him to take full control of Jonathan's body. He then asks if she will willingly give him her blood, to which she agrees. In her ending, Dio punctures her neck with his fingers and drains her blood, killing her.

As a playable character, Midler's Stand makes her a great medium-to-long range fighter. While her normal attacks have a fairly good range, most of her attacks uses High Priestess ability to change into something, such as scissors, razor blades, harpoons, tractor, cars and an anvil. Hes first super move allows her to transform High Priestess into a Harppon Launcher and shoots severals Harppons on the opponent, each one hiting hands and legs, ending by a harpoon on the opponent's head (in the HD version of the game the move got censured, colloring the red blood into white color, however it can be changed on the options), her second super move transform High Priestess into several cars, making combos on the opponent if got hit, her third super move allows High Priestess to appear on the floor as a giant face, swallows the opponent and start chewing him/her making several hits on the opponent (similiar to how he used to attack Jotaro and Star Platinum).

Stardust Shooters (Android/iOS)Edit

Despite not appearing in the game herself, Midler's Stand, High Priestess, appears as one of the several Metal Strikers avaible to choose. It's FINISH move is a regular scratch done on the defeated opponent's Metal Striker.

TriviaEdit

  • When Capcom produced Heritage for the Future , they wanted to use Midler. However, as her face was never shown, they asked Araki to redesign her into something like a belly-dancer. Since then as shown in the JOJO A-GO!GO! artbook this new look is now her canon look.
  • In the SFC game, she appears as a stewardess and her Stand takes on the shape of the restroom's doorknob.
  • In the game Heritage for the Future Midler can use her Stand even after being de-aged by Alessi, implying she either was born or developed her Stand ability at a young age.
  • It seems that Avdol and Midler had previously met, since he knew about her beforehand and instantly recognized her after seeing her (while Joseph wondered if she really was the Stand user).
  • Midler was the last Tarot Card Stand user villian Jotaro's group met until Dio, as the users henceforth have their Stands named after Egyptian Gods.
  • Her "Super KO Defeat" portrait appears to be based on a panel featuring Yukako Yamagishi of Part IV.
