"Nobody can track me. Nobody knows the truth about Yoshikage Kira. That is, nobody will, after I get rid of you." - Yoshikage Kira (Kira Yoshikage, 吉良 吉影)


Killer Queen is the stand of Yoshikage Kira,, the main antagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.

Unlike other stands in-game, other than its punch barrages, Killer Queen specializes in explosive attacks. With this ability, the stand can deal an incredible amount of damage very fast. This stand also has a shiny counterpart of itself called Creeper Queen.

This stand is a part of the Arrow Stand Pool, in which it has a 33% chance (C Tier percentage) of obtaining from a Stand Arrow. As for its shiny, there is a 1% chance (S+ Tier percentage) of obtaining it. Additionally, with the use of a Requiem Arrow, Killer Queen will obtain the Requiem Form of itself, Killer Queen: Bites The Dust


Killer Queen is a visibly muscular humanoid Stand about as tall as the user and is light in color overall. Its crown is flat, while two sharp, triangular shapes resembling cat ears stand on both sides of the top of its head. The stand has several accessories on its waist and below, such as a brown belt with a golden skull and a black pair of pants that also have a golden skull while having a pair of sandals.

On the other hand, Sheer Heart Attack takes the form of a plated sphere with a superficial, removable knob on its top and tank treads on either side. Embedded at its front is a cat-skull similar to those on Killer Queen's body, with the addition of a downward dagger on the forehead, a movable jaw, and a short spike as a nose.

As for Killer Queen's shiny, Creeper Queen, both stands contain several differences in terms of their appearance, as Creeper Queen is a complete reskin of the stand. In short, the shiny is basically Killer Queen but with the creeper skin texture overriding the model. Its skin has a green-colored appearance, having cat-like ears on its head and the iconic creeper face covering its facial areas. Its Sheer Heart Attack model also takes the texture of a Minecraft TNT, a reference to how both objects explode.

Removed/Reworked Abilities:

F - Bites The Dust

This ability was removed after the ''Killer Queen Requiem'' update. It was similar to the BTD we have currently, but there was no animation. Of course, everybody would explode, and time would reverse.

Evolved Forms:

(LMB + Requiem Arrow) - Killer Queen: Bites The Dust

Killer Queen: Bites The Dust is the Requiem Form of Killer Queen. The stand has a similar appearance to Killer Queen, only having crossed arms, and a shadow-like aura surrounding them, with the top of their body shaded. with the same model as Killer Queen. Killer Queen: Bites The Dust is obtainable by using a Requiem Arrow while having a Killer Queen.

Note: This evolved form will NOT apply to Killer Queen's shiny, Creeper Queen.

Battle Strategies:

General Combat Knowledge:

KQ is mostly a short-range stand, with few ranged projectiles. Keeping pressure on your opponent is absolutely essential, and the good news is that you have the perfect tool for it. Your T, The Sheer Heart Attack, constantly follows the opponent closest to you endlessly, and although it's too slow to do much, it deals lots of damage if anyone gets too close. Having an R as an AOE attack is incredible. Keeping them constantly on the move means they are either forced to run or approach, either way resulting in a swift victory for KQ. Your barrage is also a very useful tool in keeping your opponents locked in place to combo with your R or Y. Your close range is even better, with your R and F dealing very high damage. SHA forces them to not move, so they can‘t get attacked, take advantage of this, and get the hits.


One of the strangest parts of KQ's move mechanics is that if you have a bomb already planted in someone. you are unable to use your R, F, and Y, so its very recommended to detonate the bomb on the perfect time, you can combo with it. An interesting attack is your F, which is essentially an extra R, allowing you to mix up whatever option you decide to go with. Another problem that new KQ users might experience is that they can plant a bomb on their Sheer Heart Attack, most likely with Y, so try to avoid doing that as much as possible.
