Who Is Johngalli A In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure?

Johngalli A is the antagonist in part 6 of JJBA titled Stone Ocean. He is a blind assassin and a loyal follower of Dio. Despite being blind, Johngalli A is an adept sniper who disguises his rifle as a cane and carries it all the time.

Out of his loyalty to Dio, Johngalli hates Jotaro (Dio’s killer) and his daughter Jolyne and wants nothing more than their death.

Aiming to take revenge on the Joestar family, Johngalli A frames Jolyne Cujoh for murder. As Jolyne ends up in Green Dolphin Street Prison, he plots to kill her and Jotaro Kujo inside the prison with the help of his Manhattan Transfer Stand.

Manhattan Transfer is the Stand of Johngalli A which he uses to snipe the Kujos in the prison. It appears in blue color both in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga and anime. It looks like a small satellite consisting of a round, metallic core around which four, rectangular wings are regularly positioned.

Manhattan Transfer Stand

The Manhattan Transfer is a Stand that has no combat ability of its own but it has a long-range and set of powers that makes Johngalli A’s sniping perfect. It allows him to shoot his targets from a great distance with precision, and also through blind spots.

How Does Manhattan Transfer work?

Manhattan Transfer can sense the movement of a person or an object by reading the air currents around it and sensing the shifts. This Stand transfers this information to Johngalli A psychically who can visualize what is happening around him, estimate the position of his targets, and even get an idea of their general appearance.

The biggest advantage of this Stand is that it can change the direction of bullets shot by its user. So Johngalli A can change the trajectory of his bullets to shoot around covers and blind spots.

However, the Manhattan Transfer also has a weakness. Since it is dependent on reading air current, it is possible to fool Johngalli A. into misreading the wind. For instance, creating different layers of gases will result in the distortion of the air currents.
