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

From SuperCombo Wiki

Jean Pierre Polnareff (ジャン・ピエール・ポルナレフ Jan Piēru Porunarefu) is a core ally in Stardust Crusaders and appears with his stand, Silver Chariot. He fights along the Stardust Crusaders, heading for DIO in Egypt.

Polnareff was injected with a parasite given to him by Dio after his encounter with him while searching for his sister's murderer. DIO told Polnareff that the man he's seeking has two right hands, and that he will help him find that man if he got rid of Jotaro and company. His desire to seek revenge caused him to be blinded by DIO's evil, and be tricked into attacking Jotaro and company. Luckily, Jotaro and his friends defeated Polnareff and safely removed the parasite that was controlling his mind. Polnareff joined Jotaro and company hoping to get revenge for his sister and DIO's manipulation. After a while, they faced the man who killed his sister, J. Geil and he got his revenge on him. Ever since he got revenge, he aimed to get revenge on DIO.

Polnareff is a charge character that dominates neutral in Stand ON with his excellent normals, and completely dictates the pace of a match in Stand OFF with Shooting Star, allowing him to constantly pressure the opponent from anywhere on screen, and force them into oppressive high/low mix with solid damage and corner carry. Offensively, Polnareff leans heavily on combo resets, ending early to go back into Shooting Star high/low mixups, as his Okizeme is basically nonexistent. Defensively, his fast, disjointed, and extremely non-committal Stand ON buttons, most notably S.4B, one of the best pokes in the entire game, makes it a struggle for any opponent to get in. At his core, Polnareff is a character that does nearly everything you could ask for, and can work for just about any playstyle, through his strong offensive and defensive buttons, and his unparalleled mixup potential. Just be wary of the fact that he cannot block while Shooting Star is out.
