Similar to Star Platinum, this Stand shares a lot of resemblance to its respective counterpart. However, some of the movesets and abilities of this Stand are different from said Stand.
Star Platinum (Stone Ocean) is a humanoid Stand, resembling a tall, well-built man. A wavy line runs from each arm to the front of its torso, continuing down its legs.
It has a minimal range of clothing and armor, including a short, circular yellow scarf, shoulder pads with a spiral design, long gloves with studs on the back, knee and elbow guards, a loincloth, and short boots, which became knee-length in part 6 Stone Ocean.
However, since Star Platinum (Stone Ocean) is different from Star Platinum, some of the notable differences are on its appearance is the color of its skin, pauldrons, and scarf. Its face and body have varying shades of purple. It has long, flowing hair with a darker shade above its eyes and on the bridge of its nose, blurring the distinction between its hair and head.

|Star Platinum: Stone Ocean brings back its right arm for a short period of time, then rushes forward at the opponent, grabbing them and pulling them in towards its user and additionally dealing a mediocre amount of damage. Star Platinum was able to do this move.|
|Similar to Shadow The World's teleportation move, Star Platinum (Stone Ocean) will teleport the user to wherever their crosshair is placed. During the teleportation, the user's screen will turn black and white for a split second when teleporting. You can also use this ability without summoning your Stand.

General Combat Knowledge:
Star Platinum Stone Ocean might seem like a weakened, old SP at first, with a very bad durability, but once you look further into the Stand, it is quite durable, and it has a lot of difference to old SP. First of all, your most important combo will be V + R, just like Star Platinum - The World, however, SPSO's V is a teleport move instead of a dash, making it less predictable. Your Y move is probably the best move in the game due to it being unpredictable, a combo finisher, and basically free damage. But the most important part of SPSO is that it has insanely low cooldowns, an example being its R move, having only 4 seconds of cooldown. Overall SPSO has a lot of good matchups against most of the Stands and specs in-game. Overall, SPSO is a really strong Stand that shouldn't be underestimated at high level play.
Your Time Stop is, most likely, the best non over heaven time stop in the game, due to its cooldown: it's just 20 seconds, it's extremely low, making you able to spam your TS. V is a move that should be always used during any sort of PvP, since it's a very good movement option, and you can use anything after the teleport. Your T move, the spear throw, is an insanely good projectile, it's not too fast, but it can act as a combo starter. It also has only 15 seconds of cooldown while dealing 45 damage. Star Pull is also a good combo starter, however, it is quite slow, so only use it when you know it will land. Lastly, Time Smite is an amazing move, but you shouldn't throw it out randomly. Instead, try using it as a combo finisher, since during combos most people won't be able to evade the move or block it.
Star Platinum Stone Ocean is a generally fast Stand that can do insanely quick combos and rack up a ton of damage in mere seconds. So here are few ways to counter this Stand:
- Blocking. Blocking is by far the best way to counter this Stand. You will negate most damage done to you by the Y move (unless you have a Stand with a bad durability), and SPSO can't really do much to you other than a V + H + R combo to you while blocking.
- Speed. Stands like Star Platinum, King Crimson, Samurai will absolutely obliterate this Stand, since they have really fast moves and really good blocking abilities (except King Crimson). Using them might grant you victory.
