- The character featured in this article is commonly referred to as "ACDC".
PersonalityEditLike Wamuu and Kars, Esidisi is very confident in his powers and abilities and sees humans as inferior. However, he has a more violent temper than the others to the point that he has to cry and sob to calm himself down.
Esidisi has shown to act dishonorably and deceptively as long as it will bring Kars' goal to fruition, as shown when he possesses the defenseless Suzie Q to stall Joseph and co. for some time. However, Joseph notes that this marks a loyal side to Esidisi's personality, in that he is willing to give up his own honor and pride for the success of his friends.
Sometime between the formation of his group and the beginning of his millenia of rest, he and his comrades would travel to Rome and fight a battle with the ripple users that would end in their victory; how they ended up resting in the wall is unknown.
Esidisi, along with Wamuu and Kars, were discovered by Nazis in Rome. He later appears with Wamuu and Kars in pursuit of the Red Stone of Aja held by Lisa Lisa before helping in attacking a Nazi facility and killing Mark, a Nazi Caesar befriended. He follows Wamuu when he is taken away by Joseph in order to protect Caesar and Speedwagon, foiling Joseph's plans by swallowing the dynamite he had planned to use. In desperation Joseph bluffs that with only one month of training he could defeat the two of them. Intrigued, Wamuu and Esidisi both implant a wedding ring inside him, which will kill him if he does not defeat them and take their antidotes within a month. On that note they leave in search for the Red Stone.
After learning of the whereabouts of the Red Stone of Aja, he attacked and killed Loggins, initiating a fight with Joseph Joestar. In his battle with Joseph, he tries to intimidate him by disabling Joseph's deceptive tactics. Esidisi cuts the hidden rope through which Joseph plans to send "ripple" energy to hurt him with his boiling hot blood vessels, which he also utilizes to attack Joseph. Nevertheless, he falls for Joseph's more sophisticated deception, for Joseph had predicted his action and employed the Cut and restore rope trick.
His bones and muscles are destroyed but his brain and blood vessels possess Suzie Q, who takes the Red Stone of Aja and sends it to Kars in Switzerland. Esidisi then turns Suzie Q into a "blood bomb", but Joseph and Caesar attack Suzie Q at the same time, their ripples cancelling each other out and keeping Suzie Q unharmed, but forcing Esidisi out of her body. Esidisi clings onto Joseph but is finished off by the sunlight.
Just like vampires, Esidisi can only be killed if his brain is destroyed. If its the only thing left, he can grow tentacles from it to attach himself on someone else and possess them. He also has blood-based abilities, possibly a reference to the Foreigner song, Hot Blooded.
Master Strategist: Despite his violent temper, Esidisi is a brilliant tactician, being able to see through Joseph's deception and even managing to thwart his insidious plans using his own, something no other villain in the series demonstrated. Esidisi also traveled to China and is knowledgeable in Sun Tzu's Art of War, and knows about his theory "all warfare is based on deception".Flame Mode (炎の流法 (モード) Honō no Mōdo?): Using Flame Mode, Esidisi is able to raise his body temperature in order to heat his blood up to 500 degrees Celsius, then hurl it out melting anything the blood touches.
Erratic Blaze King Mode (怪焰王 Kaien'nō Mōdo?): After entering his Heat Mode, Esidisi extends his blood vessels out of his body and makes them into long, prehensile needles with which he injects his boiling blood into enemies.
Erratic Blaze King's Giant Cartwheel Prison Mode (怪焰王大車獄の流法 Kaien'nō Daishagoku no Mōdo?): After creating several holes in his back, Esidisi makes a huge spinning jump, while extending his blood vessels out of the newly created holes, similar to a hedgehog's spines. He then attacks using his blood vessels to surround his enemies, giving them little room to escape.
Self Detonation: As a last resort, Esidisi is able to detonate his own body, in order to cover a wide area with his boiling blood to kill a big group of enemies. Presumably, not even Esidisi himself can survive after preforming this attack.
In Video GamesEdit
Famicom Jump: Hero RetsudenEdit
Esidisi is one of the many playable characters in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle. Along with Wammu and Kars, they are the only character to use the "Mode" as their fighting Style. As he only had one battle in the original series (against Joseph Joestar) the developers took the liberty to make his moveset a little more compatible with the rest of the game's cast.
One example is his GHA Blood Vessels attack, which never actually managed to hit Joseph in the story, but in-game the attack makes the opponent burn and explode, much like how Esidisi explained it before trying to attack Joseph. His HHA makes him use a fire-based kick on the opponent (the same kick he did to kill Logins) then sucks a little of the opponent's blood to recover some health. Most of Eisidi's attacks consist in using his Blood Vessels as a long-range attacks or to grab the enemy and bring him near him creating chances for combos. Eisidisi can also use his famous crying lines "HEEEEEEEEY, NOT FAIR!" as a counter attack (similar to Joseph's "Your next line is gonna be..."). If Eisidisi is defeated on the final round, his brain will come out of his body and evaporates (similiar to his death by the sun's light).
- In the game Imperishable Night from Touhou Project the comment for Kaguya's Spell Card Divine Treasure "Salamander Shield" (Lunatic) references Esidisi.
