"WRYYYYYYYYYYY!" - Dio Brando (Dio Burandō, ディオ・ブランドー)

Summary

The Vampiric Minions are agressive NPCs that can be found in the Sewers as Dio Brando's allies. They can drop items such as Water, or a Banknote. They have 300 health Points (the strong has 750 Health points).

Vampiric Minions are a direct reference to Dio Brando's vampiric minions from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood.

Vampiric Minions are furious and strong, they will rip you into shreds if you try to kill them. But if you have a great fighting knowledge and strategy, you can pull out a successful battle.

There is a chance that Vampiric Minion 1 can spawn as the strong variant. This variant has x2.5 more health, redder teeth than the basic minions, and has a new ground slam move. When killed, it drops two items instead of one item.

Appearance

Vampiric Minions have a simple appearance, they have green skin and wear tattered, dark-colored clothes. Their heads have no hair and it is a brighter skin tone than the rest of their body. The Vampiric Minions' faces have red eyes and fangs, giving them a scarier vibe compared to the rest of the NPCs in the game. Vampiric Minions don't wear any shoes.

The Strong Vampiric Minions are a larger variant compared to the base version. The only discernable difference in appearance besides size is the Strong Minion's redder teeth. The Strong Minion's Ground Smash cracks the floor it is used on.
