Red Hot Chili Pepper (レッド・ホット・チリ・ペッパー Reddo Hotto Chiri Peppā?) is the Stand of Akira Otoishi, featured in Diamond Is Unbreakable.


Red Hot Chili Pepper resembles an alien with a beak and a lizard-like tail. Its head bears a resemblance to a Pachycephalosaurus. Its body is covered in a radiant glow that slowly diminishes the longer the Stand is in use without electricity. Its design is a combination of the strong head-butting dinosaurs from Kyouryuu Daikikou and Frieza from Dragon Ball Z.[2]

It possesses a codpiece of varying length which is given a consistently less prominent appearance in the anime adaptation.

After his fight with Josuke & Crazy Diamond, Red Hot Chili Pepper was thrown into the ocean, dispersing its electrical power as well as its body. The Stand itself was effectively broken, with a dismembered look, as most of its body was left in the ocean. 


In order to hide his identity, Akira speaks and is able to express various emotions through his Stand and its facial features (giving the strong impression that the Stand is responsible).


  • Absorbing Electricity: Red Hot Chili Pepper is capable of absorbing electricity to use as energy for a number of things, including increasing its raw strength, movement, healing its wounds, levitating, and covering itself in an electric coat. However, this strength also limits the Stand's range, as it must remain near power to avoid depleting all of its strength. Upon depleting the electricity it has absorbed, it will weaken and take upon a rusted look instead of its shiny gold coat and slowly begins to vanish. If it doesn't intake electricity again, the Stand will die, causing the user to suffer the same fate.
  • Electrical Transmission: Red Hot Chili Pepper can pass through electrical systems, including power wires or batteries, at light speed. If Red Hot Chili Pepper holds on to an object, it can turn it into electricity and move it where it desires. This is how Akira stole many items, including his guitars. If this move is used on a living person, they are electrocuted and eventually die, though not immediately. It can even stealthily spy on people that way.
