Reality is the lifeblood that makes a work pulse with energy. Reality itself is entertainment!

—Rohan Kishibe

Rohan Kishibe (岸辺 露伴 Kishibe Rohan) is a side character introduced in Diamond is Unbreakable. First featured as an antagonist, he becomes an ally in the search for Yoshikage Kira.

A successful professional mangaka, Rohan is often roped into paranormal events while conducting research for his latest manga. He is a Stand User who uses his Stand, Heaven's Door, to transform others into books and read them for inspiration.

He is notable for being featured as the protagonist in a variety of spinoffs to the main JoJo story, including the series Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan; Rohan at the Louvre, and Rohan Kishibe Goes to Gucci.
