Polnareff may have been one of the most interesting characters, both in terms of visual appeal and backstory, when it came to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. However, when the character made a surprise return to season five of the franchise, Golden Wind, he was having the absolute worst year of his life. Perhaps due to fans celebrating his doomed return, JoJo fanatics worldwide noticed a certain fashion sense that immediately reminded them of the Silver Chariot wielding frenchman in Jean Pierre Polnareff.

Even Polnareff's fashion sense couldn't save him from the fate that befell him at the hands of Golden Wind's antagonist, Diavolo. Attempting to find the extraterrestrial arrow that was unlocking the stands within random citizens, Polnareff came face to face with Diavolo but was horribly mangled in the process. Recovering, Polnareff's stand of Silver Chariot was exposed to the arrow and went berserk, with the new name of Chariot Requiem.
Aside from creating a race to get the arrow, Chariot Requiem switched the minds of everyone within a certain range of its presence, even locking poor Polnareff into the body of the Stand wielding turtle. Barking out orders from his new amphibian frame, Polnareff is attempting to do his darndest to defeat Diavolo with what little power he has left with Giorno, Trish, and Mistah. Whether or not they'll be successful will be revealed in a few weeks when the Golden Wind finale airs.
