If you’re following me on Youtube or just been following me along in general, I did a let’s play of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: 7th Stand User, a pretty good Jojo fangame and a good RPG Maker game in general. I even got a proper review of it over here.
One of the notable things about 7th Stand User is that you can get one of many multiple original Stands to play through the game with. The Stand you get is decided by a personality test you’re given at the beginning, sorta like the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon stuff. Now, if you want to play along, you may be wondering what Stands there are and what your answers have to be to get them.
So, here’s a short guide on Stands! Of course, there’s a wiki for the game, but also, I fucking hate Fandom dude, I hate the ads. So, I hope to lessen the pain for others by transcribing the useful bits to this ad-free site.
There are nine groups of questions correlating to a personality trait, which the wikia labels as A to I. You are first asked two unique questions that will put 1 to 3 points toward one of the personality groups and asks you a question from it. Depending on your answer, you’ll then be asked a question from the previous or next group (ex: answering in group I will lead to a question from group H or A), which also adds a point to that personality group. The question asked depends on how many points you already have in that group.
The quiz ends when you get five points in a trait. A sub-trait will be decided based on which adjacent trait got the second-most points and you’ll then be awarded with a Stand.
Using my results as an example, I answered the first question saying that I prefer to be away from others and the second saying that my trust in someone depends on the circumstances. This randomly gave me 3 points in Group D, so I was first asked the third question from D. From there, I got 5 points in D, 3 points in C, 2 in B and 1 in E. And so, D was chosen as my main trait and C as my sub-trait, which gave me Wildhearts; had I leaned more toward a colder personality (E), I would have gotten Miracles instead.
Here are the sets of questions transcribed from the wikia. If you’re trying to get a specific Stand, use this to game the system. If you’re just a casual reader trying to figure out what Stand you have, get out a pen and paper and mark off points.
1 ) Where are you standing [in social circumstances]?
- Mingling with the group
- Right in the center
- Off in my own place
2 ) Do you think it’s best to give people the benefit of the doubt, or is your trust something to be earned?
- I trust them from the outset
- I distrust them
- Depends on the circumstances
If you’re just kinda following along, for the sake of sticking to the spirit of this thing, get a random number generator to give you a number from 1 to 3. Remember to stop playing along when you get 5 points in a group!

And now, the part we’ve all been waiting for: what Stand do ya got?
A – B (Serious-Cooperative)
It’s very powerful for a long-range stand, but the trade-off is low durability, hit rate and high SP consumption.
It has low durability for a short-range Stand but makes up for it in raw damage; its status as a short-range Stand and its lack of long-range moves means it’s ineffective against long-range enemies.
Looking at its moveset, this guy specializes in wind-attacks, buffs, and debuffs.
A mainly earth elemental attacker that also specializes in inflicting status ailments.
Along with heals, it has decent elemental and status inflicting attacks, but unlike its fellow Gun, lacks any serious AOE attacks.
Apparently they’re like Sex Pistols and can talk to the player with individual personalities, so I dig them. Some moves and their normal attack has the chance to halve an enemy’s stats with their unique ailment, Specials.
Low stats but makes up for it with a variety of skills. Has a sub-stand called Endless, Nameless that can do damage over time when unleashed.
Has very low attack and is more geared toward disabling enemies and has a skill that lowers the encounter rate.
Is the premiere Support Stand and token healer girl.
Dubbed to be pretty well-rounded and good for beginners; try to aim for this one if you don’t plan on being honest in the personality quiz and just want to do a casual playthrough.
Swarm Stand that specializes in electrical attacks. Can inflict the unique ailment Surrounded, which does continuous damage over time and lowers hit rate.
A really good attacker – as long as the enemy is within its strong range.
Another talking Stand that can attack at all ranges. Can transform into Caravan Act 2, which transports you to a special shop.
Is generally balanced offensively and defensively but lacks long-range attacks. Also specializes in buffs and debuffs.
She has low accuracy, speed and defense but is the strongest Stand in the game.
Lacks power for a short-range Stand but has a variety of elemental skills and has access to a one-hit KO skill very early on.
Can do continuous damage against enemies with Vampire skills while debuffing them. Can inflict Bugs, but the wikia doesn’t really explain what that is or does.
