Pesci (ペッシ Pesshi?) is an antagonist from Part V: Vento Aureo and a member of La Squadra di Esecuzione. He operates together with Prosciutto.


Pesci is timid near his introduction, using his Stand power almost hesitantly. However, with Prosciutto's words of assurance, he gains confidence in himself, and nearly kills Bruno Buccellati during their battle. Buccellati notes, however, that Pesci's bravery dissolved into useless threats when the assassin attempted to threaten his friends inside Coco Jumbo.


Pesci is introduced as an overeager crony of Prosciutto's, eager to complete their mission to kidnap the Boss's daughter. When he confronts Guido Mista on his own, he is nearly killed and his confidence quickly dissolves. However, he could be considered to be one of the most developed villains of the story, as, after seeing the extent of Prosciutto's determination, he regains the confidence to complete his mission and challenges Buccellati, almost defeating him and even forcing him to admit that Pesci was more dangerous than Prosciutto in a one-on-one fight. However, Pesci is defeated by Buccellati when he attempts to kill Buccellati's companions inside Coco Jumbo, a move that Buccellati deems useless. He is separated into several pieces by Sticky Fingers.

In Video Games

Giogio's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Whirlwind (PS2 Game)

Pesci appears as the enemy faced on chapter 9 where you play as Buccellati. The fight is set outside the train, a place where Pesci has a great advantage due to his Stand ability, Beach Boy.

During gameplay Pesci will always get away as far as possible and use his Stand to try to catch the player. Beach Boy's ability will throw a string in the player's direction, and if the string catches its target, they have to press all the buttons as quickly as possible to get free, otherwise Pesci will keep pulling the player near him. If the player is totally near Pesci, he will kick his opponent and run away again, restarting his game strategy.

Unlike the manga, his death is shown as him being beaten up severely by Sticky Fingers.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle (PS3 Game)

Pesci appears as a stage hazard and situation finish on the PART V's Naples Train Station stage. Both him and Prosciutto appears near the train during the beginning of the match. If one of the fighters is thrown into the hazard indication area, Pesci and Prosciutto both enter the train. Prosciutto encourages Pesci by saying he needs to trust himself, and then Pesci will throw his Stand's string into the stage. The player who got caught by this attack will suffer damage and will be thrown away.

As a situation finish, Pesci's Beach Boy hooks the opponent by the head from the train. The train then moves and the unfortunate loser is dragged away and both players can hear Pesci's laughs.


  • Pesci refers to Prosciutto as big brother ("aniki") though it is never made clear if it's blood relation or not. "Aniki" is a title that Yakuza members call their superiors.
