"Which one of you primitives awakened me?" - Santana (Santana, サンタナ)


Santana is the first Pillarman antagonist featured in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency, although he plays a very minor role.

This spec can be obtained by using a Vampire Mask while having the Vampire Spec with a 15/18 (83.33%) chance. Santana can alternatively be obtained by using a Bizarre Arrow bought from the shop with a 2.04% chance of obtaining the Spec.


Santana does not have a physical appearance in the game, only the player being able to use its abilities with the player's own model. However, the visual effects of the abilities will be shown when used.

The Rib Blades resemble eight tusk-like objects that protrude out of the user's torso. In the front, there are two smaller, central ribs and two aimed farther to the side. On the back are two large ribs. Although they are somewhat hard to see, there are two small ribs that appear out of the user's side.
