"Bites the Dust was born from my absolute desire to not encounter you...Bring it on!" - Yoshikage Kira (Kirā Kuīn Baitsa Dasuto, キラー・クイーン バイツァ・ダスト)
Killer Queen: Bites The Dust is the "Requiem Form" of Killer Queen, the Stand of the main antagonist Kira Yoshikage from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable, the 4th Part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
Like Killer Queen, this Stand is extremely powerful, as it also does a lot of damage with its explosive abilities. Along with its Bites The Dust ability, this Stand can be extremely dangerous and powerful.
In appearance, Killer Queen Bites the Dust is a very detailed Stand. Its crown is flat, while two sharp, triangular shapes resembling cat ears stand on both sides of the top of its head. Its eyes comprise cat-like vertical pupils in front of its generally red-colored sclera. It has no nose, and its mouth is not visible, due to the black mist surrounding it.
It wears dark grey, studded, leather-like forearm-length gloves, mirrored in style by a garter belt-like band at its waist and ankle-height footwear.
Four short spikes line the top of its back. Its shoulders, the hands, belt buckle, front of its crotch, ankles and the top of its feet all bear the emblem of a skull with ears resembling. Overall, this stand has a similar appearance to Killer Queen, only having red glowing shining eyes and a dark mist/aura surrounding it, with the same model as Killer Queen. When Killer Queen: Bites the Dust isn’t out, it gives the user red glowing eyes and a dark mist aura.
|Whatever touches Killer Queen: Bites The Dust's hand while using R or F turns into a bomb. This bomb can later be exploded with R.|
|Killer Queen: Bites The Dust's explosions will cause damage to anybody near it. The damage will change depending on your position to the explosion. 40 being the minimum and 55 being the max damage.|
|Killer Queen Bites The Dust appears in front of the user and unleashes a more "enhanced" version of its original barrage with 10 extra punches, this hitting the target 50 times and dealing much more damage and slowing down the enemy.|
|With a swift poke of the finger, Killer Queen Bites The Dust turns whatever it touches into a bomb, Once the user presses R again, the opponent will instantly explode, dealing incredible damage.|
|Using Stray Cat, Killer Queen: Bites The Dust deploys a bomb-infused bubble. Similar to Sheer Heart Attack, the bubble will slowly follow the nearest player until it reaches them. Once you're ready, press T again to deliver them an incredible explosion! The explosion used to be instant, however, it now has a small delay of around 2 seconds between the activation.|
|Killer Queen Bites The Dust throws a coin at the target, which plants a bomb in the player, dealing pitiful damage, but can be detonated for an explosive surprise with R, which will deal extreme damage to the target.
Note: You can only plant bombs in players.
|Third Bomb: Bites The Dust||After quickly punching the target for pitful damage, both Killer Queen and its user float into the air, hovering there for roughly 7 seconds, before returning everyone around them including the user back to their original positions, while also dealing superior damage to everyone around them except the target. You are invincible to any kind of attack during this state.
If you use Bites the Dust on an object, it'll act as a normal bomb that can be later detonated with F.
|Killer Queen Bites The Dust grabs the opponent and blows them up, dealing incredible damage. This move used to be able to heal the user but got removed.
Note: This ability will only work in players.
|Killer Queen will peform a donut attack that deals moderate damage. If the attack lands and you have a bomb planted in someone else, the bomb transfers to the person who got hit by this attack.
Note: If you use Bites The Dust after using J, the bomb will switch to the primary bomb able to use R/Using J will place a bomb to the enemy that you can activate with R.
General Combat Knowledge:
KQ:BTD, if used correctly, can be one of the most terrifying Stands to encounter during a PvP scenario. Possessing two unique, and very powerful passives: its ability to plant bombs on anything, and every bomb being an AOE, allows users to either destroy opponents as quickly as possible, leaving them with no time to react, or set traps and explode opponents remotely, resulting in little to no damage being done to the user
Every single move KQ:BTD utilizes are capable of dealing an incredible amount of damage, with every explosive move being able to induce ragdolling. Its Enhanced SHIBO Barrage (E) is capable of doing up to 300 damage (full duration), while crippling the opponent's speed. Primary Bomb/First Bomb (R), KQ:BTD's signature explosive move, is able to dish out a maximum of 55 damage, much higher than most other stand's Heavy Punches. Explosive Homing Bubble (Stray Cat) (T) performs as the name implies; the creation of a homing remote detonation bomb, that is completely invincible. Yen Coin Throw (Y), KQ:BTD's only ranged move, is technically the most powerful projectile in the game, capable of dealing the same amount of maximum damage as KQ:BTD's (R). If a user is facing an opponent that relies on aggressive rushes, Explosive Grab (H) cuts their assaults short, immobilising the opponent and explodes them straight up. Have an idle bomb sitting somewhere and need to plant it somewhere else? Bomb Transfer (J) allows you to do just that without having to explode then and replant a new bomb, saving the user precious cooldown seconds in a PvP.
If all else fails, every KQ:BTD user has one more deadly trick up their sleeves. Killer Queen: Bites the Dust (F). After planting this bomb on a player, this allows the user to explode EVERY SINGLE PLAYER AROUND THE USER (apart from the bomb holder him/herself), without fail. During this move's activation, the user poses in the air while gaining nigh indestructibility. Every user affected then gets reverted back to their previous positions in the past few seconds, and then explodes.
While being a short-ranged Stand, with only one ranged projectile, KQ:BTD makes up for this through its ability to dish out an incredible amount of damage at once. Having pretty much every move being an AOE attack is incredible, allowing you to take on multiple opponents at once. Plus, every bomb move is able to bypass block, while also inducing ragdoll.
Being able to convert any solid surface into a bomb, combined with your (T), the Stray Cat Bubble, allows you to keep your opponents constantly on the move. This means that they are either forced to run from you or attempt to get close, resulting with them being exploded, one way or another. Your barrage is also a handy tool in keeping your opponents locked in place for a short amount of time, allowing combo opportunities.

Pros and Cons:
- Godly damage output.
- Great ranged attacks.
- Good combo potential.
- Most of the bombs bypass Love Train.
- Can place bombs on absolutely anything.
- Explosions can hit multiple people.
- High barrage damage.
- Using R on the bubble will create a double bomb, allowing you to land T with ease (Note: you need to detonate your R bomb BEFORE you detonate your T)
- Good for farming Dio Brando.
- Most of the attacks still suffer from rather high cooldowns, so its highly dependent on the R.
- Struggles against opponents with greater mobility.
- Lacks Sheer Heart Attack.
- Explosive Homing Bubble doesn't explode instantly, allowing the opponent to dodge.
- KQBTD voice lines are "...Hayato...", "Killer Queen's ability, is to turn everything it touches into a bomb." and "Oh dear... It seems that you have found it.".
- Explosive Homing Bubble used to explode instantly when you pressed T again.
- KQBTD back in the day was called KQR (Killer Queen Requiem). It is still called Killer Queen Requiem when you check or trade a player with it.
- KQBTD used to have no idle pose. But it was brought back.
- When posing, Killer Queen: Bites the Dust will play Yoshikage Kira's Theme "Killer".
- This stand's name is a reference to the song "Another One Bites the Dust " by Queen
- For some strange reason, this stand has the decal of Star Platinum's face. This may be a bug.
- Before, you could get this automatically when you have Requiem Obtained: true, but now you will need the help of a Requiem Arrow to get it.
- Contrary to popular belief, Killer Queen Bites the Dust isn't a requiem stand but rather a completely separate sub stand, think of it as "getting another sub stand/stand". Requiem only occurs when the stand itself is pierced by an arrow.
- This stand will get a shiny variant called "Charged Creeper Queen", which is the "Requiem" (Bites the Dust) form of Creeper Queen.
- For some reason, you can plant a bomb on your own explosive homing bubble. (T move)
