Polnareff attempts to climb up the stairs leading to DIO but keeps finding himself further down, realizing it has something to do with DIO's Stand, The World. Before Polnareff and DIO can clash, Jotaro's group arrive on the scene, learning about DIO's power and Avdol and Iggy's deaths from Polnareff. Pursuing DIO up to the top of his mansion, the group have Nukesaku open up DIO's coffin, only for him to suddenly be inside in an instant. Feeling murderous intent from inside the mansion, the group are forced to flee as the sun sets. While Polnareff, refusing to run away, is joined by Jotaro in pursuing DIO despite not knowing his power, DIO hijacks a limousine and pursues Joseph and Kakyoin, managing to block each of Kakyoin's attacks. Determining that The World is a close-range Stand like Star Platinum, Kakyoin comes up with a plan to expose its secrets.
