The Mist of Emptiness, Vanilla Ice, Part 3 (亜空の瘴気 ヴァニラ·アイス その3 Akū no Shōki Vanira Aisu Sono San)[1] is the seventieth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime, the forty-fourth episode of Stardust Crusaders and the twentieth episode of the Egypt Arc. It covers the second half of Chapter 244 through Chapter 247 of the manga.


Despite having accepted his fate, Polnareff discovers he was saved by Iggy, who used the last ounce of his strength to pull him out of the way before succumbing to his injuries and dying. Angered upon losing another comrade, Polnareff takes advantage of the fact Vanilla Ice had been turned into a vampire by DIO and uses sunlight to destroy him.

Meanwhile, Suzi Q pays a visit to Japan to visit Holy, having fully understanding that her daughter's life is in danger and deciding the best thing she can do for her is to have faith in Jotaro and Joseph.

Back at DIO's mansion, Jotaro, Joseph, and Kakyoin come across one of DIO's weaker servants, Nukesaku, seeing through his attempt to disguise himself as a woman and coercing him into guiding them to DIO's whereabouts. Meanwhile, Polnareff, having patched up his injuries, comes face to face with DIO himself.
