The Hand (ザ・ハンド) is a stand featured in Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable. Its user is Okuyasu Nijimura, a central character in the story. Its name is based on the band The Band (which, when written in Japanese, is only one diacritic mark different from "The Hand").


The Hand appears as a humanoid figure in yellow and black attire similar to football pads, though it has several spikes jutting from them. A towel-like object drapes over its shoulders, with a $ symbol on one end and a ¥ symbol on the other – corresponding with Okuyasu's own fashion theme of currency symbols. It seems to have some type of blinder or front-open helmet on the outside of its headlight-shaped eyes, and its right hand has spiderweb-like lines on the inside.


The Hand is a heavily battle-oriented stand. Similar to Polnareff's Silver Chariot, all its powers are either destructive or used to get an opponent in range of its powers. The Hand is possibly as strong as Josuke's Crazy Diamond, though not as quick.

Elimination of Space: This ability is one of the most powerful in the Jojo Universe, as The Hand is able to erase whatever space its right hand touches. Like Cream's ability, this effectively removes whatever is in its path from existence. Okuyasu states that not even he knows where the voided objects go, but it seems the objects are eliminated like an extremely sharp blade had sliced clean through them. This ability allows the normally short-range Stand extreme distance in its attacks, as it can simply remove the air between itself and a target to bring them within range. It also seems to apply some type of force on inanimate objects that it moves forward, as a pair of trashcans were sent crashing into Okuyasu from across a street when it was used. Okuyasu has used this ability to move himself, allowing himself to "teleport" short distances. This may mean it works under the principle of a vacuum cleaner - sucking matter into itself rather than completely removing the space it touches.

Super Strength: Even though The Hand's major power is its ability, it is not weak. Josuke notes that its right hand is strong enough such that even a normal punch from it would likely cause considerable damage to Crazy Diamond. A knee to Josuke's side made him vomit blood, and an uppercut sent the grounded Crazy Diamond flying backwards.
