JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future/Devo/Introduction

From SuperCombo Wiki

Devo the Cursed (呪いのデーボ Noroi no Dēbo), also known as Debo or D'bo, is a minor antagonist featured in Stardust Crusaders.

An infamous Native American shaman and assassin in DIO's service, Devo ambushes Jean Pierre Polnareff in his hotel room in Singapore. His Stand, Ebony Devil, has the power to possess inanimate objects, but only after Devo himself was hurt, growing in strength as Devo grows more hatred to his opponent. This allows him to remotely control them from any distance.

If you're a fan of characters with the "Puppet Archetype" like Zato from Guilty Gear, or Carl Clover from Blazblue then Devo is the character for you, and a fun fact: He is also the first puppet character in fighting games. Devo has a unique mechanic in which he always stays on remote everytime he turns his stand on. He also has a niche mechanic in which his stand can walk along the wall and the ceiling but unfortunately his has little to no uses in a real match. Devo also doesn't recieve any I-Frames every time he transitions to Stand Off. Devo's gameplay relies on heavy neutral and ground control with the puppet. Devo is scary when his stand is behind you for the inability to hit the puppet, and when devo is close(sandwiched) he can perform his powerful combos that can kill or set okizeme.
