D'Arby the Player, Part 1 (ダービー·ザ·プレイヤー その1 Dābī Za Pureiyā Sono Ichi)[1] is the sixty-sixth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime, the fortieth episode of Stardust Crusaders and the sixteenth episode of the Egypt Arc. It covers Chapter 228 through most of Chapter 232 of the manga.


The servant, who reveals himself to be D'Arby's younger brother Telence T. D'Arby, brings out his Stand Atum to drag Jotaro, Kakyoin, and Joseph into an illusionary world. There, D'Arby reveals a collection of dolls which, similar to the Elder D'Arby's poker chips, contain to souls of people he has defeated. With his Stand managing to grab onto Jotaro's arm when he attempted to attack it with Star Platinum earlier, D'Arby challenges the trio to a series of video games with their souls on the line in order to have him relinquish Jotaro. He first challenges Kakyoin in a racing video game, with both players using their Stands to perform advanced techniques. With the race neck-and-neck throughout most of the course, the pair soon enter a dark tunnel, with D'Arby gaining a slight lead.




Manga/Anime Differences

  • A scene where DIO seduces Kakyoin to his side is expanded upon.


  • The graphics on D'Arby's video games were converted in full 3D; which wasn't technically possible for gaming consoles in the late 80s.
