Wang Chan (ワンチェン Wan Chen?) is a minor antagonist featured in Phantom Blood.

Originally a black market merchant in the slums of London, he becomes a faithful servant of Dio Brando.


Wang Chan is an elderly Chinese man, scrawny and short. His hair is spiky and it firmly stands upwards, and he has very long eyebrows and a fu manchu mustache. He has a small mole under his right eye.


As a human, Wang Chan has shown a nasty and greedy personality, selling a poison to Dio without any regard for its use and heading back to the Joestar mansion after it burned to the ground to salvage for treasures and antiques. Upon becoming a zombie, however, he becomes entirely devoted to Dio's wishes. At first very quiet, the zombified Wang Chan becomes more brutal and cruel.

Being versed in the art of fortunetelling, Wang Chan is supremely confident in his prediction and knew that Dio would escape imprisonment at the Joestar mansion.


Phantom Blood

Originally only known as the "Oriental Man", he owned a curiosity shop on Ogre Street. Wang Chan sold Dio the poison which Dio used in the murder of his father, Dario Brando, and his attempted murder of George Joestar. However, Wang was not concerned with what the poison was to be used for. He told Dio, without much, if any, intent to provoke him, of a man in his own land who had a similar birthmark to Dio's who had a harsh life, but in the end lived to be over 183.[2]

Sometime after, he is captured by Jonathan and taken to the Joestar Manor. When he is used in an attempt to force Dio to go with the police, he again mentions his fortune telling, saying that Dio is far too lucky to fully have to give up this early. Dio uses George's blood to become a vampire, taking Wang Chan as his subordinate when the latter goes to search the Joestar manor for valuables.[3]

Wang Chan then takes care of Dio while he is recovering from his injuries, showing great loyalty to him. He is seen pushing Dio around in a wheelchair during their encounter with Jack the Ripper.[4] He attacks Jonathan during his training, but is defeated and escapes, informing Dio about the Ripple.[5] When the group of heroes reach Dio's mansion, Wang Chan remains hidden, being the only zombie to survive the battle. He finds Dio's head and guards it, lamenting that Dio didn't have a new body.[6]

Dio trusts him enough to be responsible for his head and implanting it onto Jonathan's body. He manages to stow away on the ship Jonathan and Erina board and after being spotted by Jonathan reterives Dio's head from a coffin. The following events did not go according to plan however, as Jonathan used the last of his strength to crush Wang Chan's head and sent a ripple throughout his body. The impact from the attack sends Wang Chan's headless body flying into the ship's machinery and disrupts it due to the ripple controlling his carcass, causing the ship full of zombies to explode.[7]


As a human, Wang Chan was a fortune teller and an expert on oriental poisons. He successfully predicted that Dio would have great luck in his life, which proved to be true in his many near-death survivals.

After being zombified, he appears to have retained his personality, though he shows a more bloodthirsty side and selflessly serves Dio. In terms of physical ability, he can jump great distances much like one trained in martial arts, and is confident enough to kill a human by a simple swipe of his rigid claw-like hands. However, as

one of the zombies shorter in stature, he usually takes to running away or hiding in self-defense, unless directly told by Dio to attack.

After Dio loses his body, Wang Chan is also shown capable of fighting one handed, whilst the other hand holds Dio's head. He also turns the head to fixate Dio's vision, allowing the vampire to use his Space Ripper Stingy Eyes.

Claws: In battle, Wang Chan chooses to wear gloves with giant-sized claws. This way he is able to increase his power and attack range, though this proved to be unsuccessful against Jonathan's Zoom Punch.[5]

In Video Games

Heritage for the Future (PS1/DC/Arcade Game)

Wang Chang appears as the "child" version of Shadow DIO when attacked by Alessi's Stand. After the move, Shadow DIO turns into Wang Chang holding the jar containing Dio's severed head. In this state Wang Chan can attack by using his claws, or the head of Dio can attack using Space Ripper Stingy Eyes.

Phantom Blood (PS2 Game)

Wang Chan appears as the first boss Jonathan faces after learning the Ripple. Much like in the original story, Wang Chan uses his giant claws to attack and poison his opponent. Wang Chan also appears in the final chapter of the game, carrying Dio's head in a large jar, as he maneuvers around and Dio uses the Space Ripper Stingy Eyes attack.

Wang Chan is also playable on some chapters in EXTRA MODE in his original form.

All-Star Battle (PS3 Game)

Wang Chan appears in the PS3 game as a navigation character for the GALLERY MODE STORE.
