He's clearly lying! My Talking Head is stuck tight to his tongue!

—Tiziano

Talking Head (トーキング・ヘッド Tōkingu Heddo) is the Stand of Tiziano featured in Vento Aureo.

Appearance

Talking Head appears as a semi-humanoid looking Stand about the size of a human tongue. While its torso looks human, a segmented tail replaces its lower body parts. Above the tail is a plate with horizontal lines similar to it's eyes.

Talking Head has a disproportionately huge human looking head, which features lips, robotic segmented eyes, but no nose. From the head sprout three tentacles which are used to attach itself to a tongue, as well as two small horns.

According to JOJOVELLER, its design is based on a squid tentacle and an alien baby.[1]

Ability

Talking Head is a fragile remote-controlled Stand with no combative ability whatsoever (its Stand stats also indicate it has negligible speed and power[2]), but is nonetheless useful as it can force a chosen victim to lie, enabling Tiziano to manipulate his enemies.

Forced Lying

To take effect, Talking Head must first latch onto the victim's tongue[3]. While Talking Head is attached, the victim is automatically forced to tell lies: whether the victim speaks, writes, or gesticulates, they will always express something false. If Tiziano so desires, Talking Head can force a victim to speak up and tell lies or remain silent, depending on the victim's resilience[3]

Tiziano can also freely toggle Talking Head's power, suddenly enabling his victim to tell the truth at an opportune moment to better manipulate his targets.[4]

While partially controlled by Talking Head, the victims are fully aware that they are forced into lying[3]. A savvy interlocutor may understand that something is wrong by watching the clearly distressed victim of Talking Head[5].

Tongue Control

Talking Head also has the ability to control and elongate the tongue of its victim. This is demonstrated when it uses Narancia's tongue to turn on bathroom sinks to draw the attention of Bucciarati's Gang, later snatching his knife out of his own hand and cutting him with it.[5]
