1. The Genesis of Gold Experience Requiem
GER is the Requiem Stand of Giorno Giovanna, a central character in the fifth part of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series, Vento Aureo. This stand is a humanoid entity that bears an uncanny resemblance to its prior form, Gold Experience. GER came into existence when Gold Experience was pierced by the Stand-creating Arrow, thereby evolving into a formidable manifestation of power and control.
2. The Appearance of Gold Experience Requiem
GER is a humanoid Stand of a similar height and build to its user, Giorno. It bears many features that are reminiscent of the original Gold Experience, including the ladybugs on its hands and the oblong grooves across its body. GER’s head extends into pointed tips with the back of the head hollow, giving it the appearance of a regal crown or a flower in full bloom.
The Stand’s eyes are distinctively designed, with ‘eyeballs’ embedded in a cross-like structure within slanted sockets. Adorning its neck is an extended ridge collar, while its body is covered with several indentations and patterns. GER first appears with the Arrow on its forehead, which eventually falls after Giorno’s victory over Diavolo.
3. The Color Schemes of Gold Experience Requiem
The color schemes of GER vary across different media. The most commonly represented scheme features an ivory-white body with brown, amber, and violet features. Other variations include a dark cream body with purple or pink features and an Arrow of different shades.
4. Personality of Gold Experience Requiem
GER exhibits a rather mechanical and polite tone, akin to a robot. It can operate independently of Giorno’s consciousness, as evidenced when it speaks to Diavolo in the erased time, a period typically occupied only by him and his Stand King Crimson. GER is aware that even Giorno isn’t fully acquainted with its ability and confidently states that no other Stand can ever oppose it.
5. Abilities of Gold Experience Requiem
GER is a sentient close-range Stand that boasts an incredible increase in both speed and destructive power compared to its original form. It wields the arcane power of nullifying the will and actions of any opponent, effectively undoing their attacks, a power that even triumphs over the time-erasing ability of King Crimson.
GER’s ultimate ability is to nullify the actions and willpower of anyone who opposes it, preventing their actions from becoming reality. Once struck by this effect, there is no escape, and the opponent will have every action they’ve performed reverted regardless of their ability.
If an opponent is killed by GER, they will be forced to continuously experience death. This is seen in the case of Diavolo, who is forced to die perpetually after attacking Giorno. Through this ability, GER is able to create a new “truth” in which the results of every action Diavolo makes are made useless.
Despite its transformation, GER appears to have not only retained its life-giving abilities but also enhanced them. This is demonstrated when Requiem fires a small stone at high-speed with enough power to pierce Diavolo’s hand before it transforms into deadly scorpions that attack him.
6. The Stand Stats of Gold Experience Requiem
One of the prime factors contributing to the invincibility of GER is its superior Stand stats. It is widely believed that this Stand is powerful enough to permit Giorno to levitate. Owing to its increased power, GER can fire a stone fast enough that it ceases to be visible to the human eye, and has enough power behind it to penetrate through a hand and destroy part of a building.
7. The Manga and Anime Appearances of Gold Experience Requiem
GER makes several appearances in both the Manga and Anime versions of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. In the Manga, it first appears in the chapter “Gold Experience Requiem, Part 1”, and subsequently appears in several other chapters. Meanwhile, in the Anime, GER first appears in the episode “King of Kings”, followed by other episodes.
8. The Quotes of Gold Experience Requiem
GER has several memorable quotes that reflect its confident and powerful nature. Some of these include “This is… “Requiem”!!”, “Yes, what you see is indeed reality”, and “You… will not… go anywhere… More precisely, you will never reach the truth!”
9. Gallery of Gold Experience Requiem
There are numerous stunning images of GER that beautifully depict its unique features and abilities. These include images of the first glimpse of GER, GER with Giorno, GER defeating Diavolo, and various closeup shots of GER’s face, arm, and foot.
10. Trivia about Gold Experience Requiem
According to an Animation booklet released alongside the Blu-Rays of Golden Wind, GER was originally supposed to pose alongside Giorno in the third version of Uragirimono no Requiem, but this was ultimately scrapped from the final version.
11. Other Stands That Could Potentially Defeat Gold Experience Requiem
Despite its formidable power, there are other stands that could potentially challenge GER. Some of these stands include The World/Star Platinum/THE WORLD, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Chariot Requiem, Bohemian Rhapsody, Tusk/Ball Breaker, Soft and Wet – Go Beyond, and Wonder Of U.

While the transformation of Gold Experience into Gold Experience Requiem was triggered by a specific event, it’s not entirely clear if this transformation is permanent.

This is a topic of intense debate among fans. While Giorno and his Stand, Gold Experience Requiem, possess formidable abilities, it’s uncertain how these would fare against Goku’s superhuman strength and Saiyan powers.
Can Giorno beat Saitama?
Again, this is a contentious topic. Saitama, also known as One Punch Man, is known for defeating his enemies with a single punch. This, against Giorno’s ability to nullify any attack, could lead to an interesting battle.
