Silver Chariot (銀の戦車(シルバーチャリオッツ) Shirubā Chariottsu?) is the Stand of Jean Pierre Polnareff primarily featured in Stardust Crusaders and appearing briefly in Vento Aureo.

Appearance/Description

In appearance, it looks like a thin, robotic humanoid clad in medieval armor, armed with a cup-hilted rapier. Although Silver Chariot is thin, it wields a heavy plate armour spiked at the shoulder pads and elbow pads. Silver Chariot has a distinctive helmet which possesses a jewel at the foreheard and several pointed down projections protecting the mouth and cheeks. Chariot's sword can be unequipped for tasks that require two hands. According to JOJOVELLER, its design is a combination of a robot with an occidental armor[1].

Like most Stands, Silver Chariot is devoid of will or personality, serving Polnareff without question - though it does display a high learning ability, as Polnareff rarely gives it direct orders. Silver Chariot´s battle cry is "Hora Hora Hora"[2], and it seems to have had a tendency to shout "Pami" when Polnareff was a child[3].

The Chariot

Silver Chariot is a dedicated combat-oriented close range Stands. As such it usually doesn't stray far away from Polnareff, but still had the ability to move several meters away from him to attack[4]. Silver Chariot has the distinct weakness of not being able to see whatever its user cannot see, making it weak if Polnareff is in any way in a blind spot. It represents the Tarot Card The Chariot, which symbolizes invasion and victory.[5]

Abilities

Silver Chariot is a very powerful, battle-dedicated Stand: all its powers directly assist the Stand in battle but have limited use anywhere else. It is an incredibly agile Stand, able to attack enemies with barrages of sword slashes and thrusts before the opponent can react. It can also use this agility, along with its sword, to defend and deflect attacks aimed at it or its user.

  • Speed: Silver Chariot is an incredibly quick Stand, as it is able to appear in multiple places at once, due to moving at a speed faster than the human eye can process and creating illusory afterimages[2]. However Silver Chariot is weighted down by its armor and needs to shed it to reach its full speed[2]. Its speed is great enough that it is able to skewer several falling coins and balls of fire in an alternating pattern in one thrust, deflect bullets shot at point—blank range, and even match Star Platinum and its barrage of punches[6].

  • Power: Even though the majority of Silver Chariot's power is in its astonishing speed, it still has great destructive power, as it is able to slice through solid rock instantaneously[7]. Silver Chariot"s strenght is portrayed incoherently, first shown to be able to lift Polnareff[8] against Muhammad Avdol but then shown to be barely strong enough to slowly pull its user against Vanilla Ice[9]
  • Precision: Silver Chariot's speed is perhaps only matched by its precision. Polnareff having trained his Stand for several years, he has enough control over Silver Chariot's movement to be able to overall fight like an experienced fencer, to slice through a bullet,or skewer several coins and balls of fire in a single thrust when they align[5]
  • Armor: Perhaps Silver Chariot's oddest property is that it is clad in a heavy suit of armor. This armor lowers its speed, but also prevents it from being injured, as Polnareff does not receive the same injuries that the armor does. The armor is shown to be capable of withstanding extreme heat without melting[2]. This ability's trade-off seems to be Polnareff's inability to see through Silver Chariot's eyes. Polnareff is able to shed Silver Chariot's armor in order to gain speed, but renders his Stand more vulnerable as a trade-off[8].

  • Shooting the Sword: Silver Chariot's only ranged ability and a secret technique.[10] This launches his sword with great force and precision, capable of reflecting off objects and striking with enough force to pierce a human body. The major drawback of doing this is that Silver Chariot can only materialize one sword, so Polnareff must retrieve the weapon before being able to attack again.
