|Series||JoJo's Bizarre Adventure|
Sandman (true name: Soundman) is a minor antagonist from Part 7 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. He's a rebellious Native American who joined the Steel Ball Run race without a horse.
Sandman is a member of a Native American tribe who learned to read the "white man's" books. When the tribe discovers the books in his tepee, they hunt him down to scalp him. It is then that Sandman is revealed to have developed a special running technique that allows him to run long distances without having to rest.
Once he found out about the Steel Ball Run race, in which jockeys from all over the world travel through North America, he became interested in acquiring the prize money to liberate his village from the white man's control.
During the race, he came to an agreement with the President of the United States to help kill Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppeli, in order to prevent them from acquiring all the pieces of the Holy Corpse.
Powers & Abilities
- Superhuman Speed and Stamina: Thanks to a special running technique developed by him, Sandman can run at staggering speeds, which are more than enough to outrun horses. This, combined with his impressive stamina and extensive knowledge of the environment, makes him a true menace.
- Stand - In a Silent Way: A Stand developed by Sandman. With it, Sandman is able to manipulate and store sounds in objects, or make them into three-dimensional Japanese symbols. When a stored sound makes contact with another object or individual, it is released as a hazard characteristic of that sound (e.g. "burning", "cutting", "stabbing"). It is most effective when used underwater, since sound travels faster through liquids.
- Knife: Sandman always carries around a large knife, which can be used in conjunction with his Stand to create a 'Whoosh' sound effect that can deflect projectiles.
- Deflected Johnny's Golden Spin Nails.
- Can outrun horses on foot.
- Leaped across a large cliff.
- He's been stated to run at 40 km/h.
- Managed to dodge the Golden Spin.
- Survived getting hit by the Golden Spin once.
- Stabbed Norisuke Higashikata.
- Dealt a large amount of damage to Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppeli.
- His Stand is named after Miles Davis' album, In a Silent Way.
