25 Days of Jojo’s - #16: Terence T. D'Arby

(Fair warning: there will be spoilers abound in this series of posts, as I find there are major moments that define some of these characters late in their respective story arcs. So in the event that you have not yet read/watched a particular part of the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure storyline, you may wish to skip over certain entries.)

#16 – Terence D’Arby – The younger brother to Daniel D’Arby, Terence similarly wagers souls, albeit in matches of video games, with the intent of storing them within marionette puppets. Whereas Daniel resorted to trickery, Daniel has no need for such underhanded methods, as his Stand, Atum, allows him to read the soul of any opponent with ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers to questions, such as which move they will make next. Terence makes a point of mentioning how he even beat up his brother when they were younger, due to Daniel attempting to steal his girlfriend, which grants Terence an intimidating parallel to his otherwise suave image from the start of his video game duel with Kakyoin, Jotaro, and Joseph. Terence’s powers provide him with a distinct advantage during his first match against Kakyoin, but are ultimately exploited during his baseball match against Jotaro, who gains a leg up on Terence D’Arby by capitalizing on everything he learned during his previous battle with Daniel D’Arby. Faced with an impending smackdown from Star Platinum, Terence’s true colors are revealed, as he begins to sweat in panic, begging that Jotaro just get it over with already and unleash his signature ‘ORAORAORA’.
