"It was me! I was the one that took the napkin first!" - Funny Valentine (Dī Fō Shī - Rabu Torein, D4C -ラブトレイン.)
D4C: Love Train, also commonly referred to as D4C: LT or CD4C is the evolved form of the stand Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (D4C) belonging to Funny Valentine, the main antagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Steel Ball Run, which is the seventh part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
As an evolved version of D4C, Love Train is an overwhelmingly powerful stand, with its main ability being to direct or reflect the damage of certain abilities or movesets back to the opponent. This stand also includes some of the original form's ability, as it still has the ability to fire a projectile and summon clones.
Similar to D4C, it possesses similar traits in terms of appearance. It still has its long horns, with the only difference being that it is missing its left one. There are pink stitches covering its entire sidearm, eyes, and legs. The X's on its legs and knees are still present.
The main difference of D4C: Love Train is its cracked feature, as simply said, it is just D4C but it has a lot of broken/missing parts, similar to Cracked Gold Experience. Some of the broken parts include one of its horns and left arm. Unlike D4C, it also has a gear-shaped pallet sticking out of its back and chest, with pink stitches on the inner part of the gear. Half its face is also destroyed.
D4C: Love Train also consists of the main color scheme of pink and light blue, similar to D4C. However, Love Train also has some differences in terms of its colors, with its chest gear having glowing/neon pink stitches on its chest and its eyes. When idle, the stand will have a bright orange aura to it, similar to the color of Love Train. When the user walks, it will leave behind a trail of effects that have similar appearances to the Love Train ability. Unlike the user, it’s clones will not have the trail effect.
|Type of Ability||Name||Description|
|The user's walkspeed is increased to 18 (from 16).|
|D4C: Love Train strikes the enemy with a powerful shove, dealing a significant amount of damage and a decent amount of knockback to the enemy player.|
|D4C: Love Train strikes the enemy with a Brutal blow dealing damage and a significant amount of knockback. This move is very similar to D4C's slapping combo.|
|D4C: Love Train will shoot a bullet at the opponent, in which it will also summon a clone that will redirect the bullet towards the nearest opponent. Long story short, the bullet shot by the original user will act as a homing bullet that will hit the nearest enemy.|
|Just like D4C, D4C: Love Train enters a pocket dimension that is surrounded by a wall of light, redirecting any and all misfortune heading towards the user. All damage will be redirected to the attacker. While Love Train is active, you can use any ability you wish except for Dimensional Hop.|
|D4C: Love Train along with its will glide on his flag in high speeds. You can jump while using this move to avoid obstacles.|
|D4C: Love Train will summon a clone that looks similar to the user, which will then lead to the clone kicking the enemy from the air, dealing superior amounts of damage and a significant amount of knockback to the opponent.|
|Similar to Shadow The World's teleportation move, D4C: Love Train and the user will teleport to the cursor's position as long as it's within a small radius around the user.|
|D4C will summon a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 clones that will shoot the closest target. Each clone has 200 HP. These clones can be damaged, however, they act as NPCs, unlike the other two clone related moves for D4C: Love Train.|
T - Dimension Hop
D4C: Love Train will make the user will disappear for 15 seconds, during this time, the user cannot use any abilities or attack anyone. However, he/she cannot be attacked either. This move is useful to regenerate HP safely or escape from a Timestop.
Note: This move is currently disabled due to some big bugs like being invisible forever, following a statement made by the developers of ABD to rework the move.
General Combat Knowledge:
D4C: Love Train is among one of the most powerful Stands in the game and unlike other powerful Stands, is relatively easier to learn and master. Despite being described as a combo Stand with the likes of Stands such as King Crimson, there is little room for combos and as such should be treated as a raw damage Stand instead. Even with its nerfs, D4C: Love Train can prove to be a GODLY Stand.
The E and R moves are virtually identical with the exception of damage; the E move does 15 more damage than the R move. Regardless, both moves knock the target away at a considerable distance. This sort of move is useful against close-range high damage Stands such as Star Platinum (Over Heaven) or Gold Experience Requiem.
The T move (currently disabled) is normally used as a getaway or repositioning move, very similar to King Crimson's Time Erase but with a few key differences: the user cannot attack, activation is instant, and the ability lasts longer (15 seconds vs KC's 10).
The Y move is your best friend. It is essentially a free hit move dealing 25 damage no matter what, regardless if the target is blocking, using Epitaph, or even has Gold Experience's Frog Deflection active. What makes this move powerful is its homing ability, akin to Tusk ACT2's Homing Nail Bullets. The bullet however, will only target the closest target, so be sure that your intended target is closest to you if you're fighting near other people. Keep in mind that it has a considerably long cooldown, so time it wisely.
The F move is arguably the entire point of D4C: Love Train. When active, it will protect you from almost all damage (some exceptions exist). However, it does not reflect damage unlike the old Love Train, so it's more for pure defence than anything. Another reason that makes Love Train a good move is the Z move; it changes the usual Stand jump for a more unique flag slide, similar to Tusk ACT4's nail glide, except it only lasts for three seconds. It's possible to combo both Z moves; you first Stand jump, then activate LT, then hold Z again.
The H move is a somewhat high risk high reward move, due to the relatively unpredictable hitbox. However, the clone hits right when you press H, not when the clone kicks. This information is vital, as it could be used as a surprise tool.
The V move is essentially the same as STW's V move, being instant teleportation. This move is very good for appearing next or behind your target and immediately retaliating, and is to an extent spammable.
Your B clones are a great tool, and for good reason: they have ranged attacks. The clones fire one bullet approximately every second, so in a 1v1 they can be your trump card. However the bullet hitboxes are bugged, so the rounds may not always hit. It is also advisable to use your clones only when you are alone, as the clones will target the closest person instead of your enemy.

Pros and Cons:
- Good combo potential.
- Great damage output.
- Good durability.
- Walk speed boost.
- Love train.
- Teleport is good for surprise attacks.
- Clones can be very good; it can even kill people and bait.
- Amazing gun move, no aim required for it. However, you could hit others on accident.
- H has amazing knockback.
- No barrage.
- E and R are short range.
- Attacks don't ragdoll the enemy.
- Love Train has a long cooldown.
- Gun and clones can hit other people instead of the person you want to hit.
- Using Clones can sometimes be punishable.
- Clones' aim are really bad.
- D4C: Love Train has 3 voicelines (N): "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.", "It was me! I was the one that took the napkin first!", and "My soul is in clear, unclouded tandem with my actions! I am a Real American Hero!"
- When posing, D4C: Love Train will play "Love Train," a song composed and performed by the American R&B band "The O' Jays." However, the pitch of the song has been increased due to copyright reasons. For now the theme is replaced with one of the ROBLOX copyright themes.
- In Stand storage, D4C:LT is actually called "CrackedD4CStand".
- D4C: Love Train is also commonly known as Cracked D4C, or CD4C due to its visual appearance and for simplicity purposes.
- When using LT, NPC’s such as DIO or F.V. (Only enemies) will not target you, so you can attack them freely, but when it runs out, they will start attacking you. During the Old LT, they would target you and you’d do the damage reflection.
- This used to have a passive where D4C: Love Train would heal 2 HP per second, but was removed after the regeneration update in 8/29/2020.
- Clones also shoot other clones, so you can basically make a game out of it.
