The Nijimura Brothers (1)
The Hand appears as a humanoid figure typically in attire similar to football pads, though it has several spikes jutting from them. A towel-like object drapes over its shoulders, with a $ symbol on one end and a ¥ symbol on the other – corresponding with Okuyasu's own fashion theme of currency symbols. On each side of the Stand's face are blinders that cover its headlight-shaped eyes and limit its vision, a result of Okuyasu's own impulsive demeanor. Its right hand has spiderweb-like lines on the inside.
The Hand, is a heavily battle-oriented Stand. Similarly to Polnareff's Silver Chariot, all its powers are either destructive or used to get an opponent in range of its powers. The Hand is possibly as strong as Crazy Diamond, though not as quick.
- Elimination: The space The Hand's right palm touches when it does a swiping motion with its arm is erased from this universe. Similar to Cream's ability, this ability effectively removes whatever is in its path from existence according to the user's will and it seems the objects are eliminated like an extremely sharp blade had sliced clean through them. Okuyasu states that not even he knows where the voided objects go. This ability is so powerful that even Killer Queen's touch and explode bombs are completely useless to The Hand's ability. After a space erasure, the voided space will be filled by space and objects filling the void, effectively moving them This property allows the normally short-range Stand a better than average fighting range, as it can simply remove the space between itself and a target to bring them within range, and bring itself and Okuyasu into range, effectively using teleportation.
- "The Band", which was the basis for The Hand's name, when written in Japanese Katakana, is only one diacritic mark off from "The Hand".
- Interestingly, like Vanilla Ice and Cream, Okuyasu and The Hand are able to eliminate space, but their uses of their abilities are otherwise restricted by their personalities. Also to note is that their statistics differ by only one letter, with The Hand having more developmental potential.
