The stand named 'Survivor' is the 'weakest'. But it's a handful.

—DIO to Enrico Pucci

Survivor (サバイバー Sabaibā) is the Stand granted to Guccio by Whitesnake featured in Stone Ocean.


Survivor appears as a multitude of small round and flat creatures equipped with two eyes, a small mouth, and a multitude of tentacles sprouting from the main body which form a ring around it.


Survivor is an automatic and thus uncontrollable Stand which, unlike most Stands, simply creates general chaos by manipulating people around it. It doesn't have any real use besides causing mayhem somewhere and hope that the intended victims dies.

Aggressiveness Stimulation

Survivor dramatically exacerbates the aggressiveness of those under its spell[1].

Survivor travels across wet surfaces and stimulates the human limbic system with a tiny electric potential of 0.07 Volts and an otherwise negligible current, which is stated to increase an individual's anger or fighting spirit[2]. Any feeling of aggressiveness will be greatly multiplied to the point those affected by Survivor will fight each other with reckless abandon. For instance, Sonny Likir, a prison guard punched his comrade so hard he not only tore away part of Westwood's flesh, but also exposed his knuckles due to the severity of the punch.[1] Afterward, the victims may even actively seek confrontation regardless of the consequence, such as a prison guard releasing all the prisoners of the isolation ward to fight them.[3] Since Guccio's ability to make other people fight combines with Survivor, Guccio remains unaffected by Survivor.

Survivor indirectly increases the fighting prowess of its victims, as they ignore pain and fear, and are focused on fighting and hurting their opponents, making them capable of otherwise inhuman feats and able to simply counterattack as they are attacked.[3][4] Additionally, those under the influence of Survivor are granted the ability to visualize the muscles of the enemy, seeing the strong points as shining stars[1], while weak points are blackened[4].


  • DIO names Survivor as the "weakest" Stand he had ever encountered because its ability does not distinguish between allies and enemies.
  • Although Survivor originally belonged to a French lodge owner, DIO somehow learned about it and got hold of it, giving it to Pucci afterward.
