"My Stand can take your soul at the moment of your loss!!"
― Daniel J. D'Arby, the Elder to the Joestar Group (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part III Stardust Crusaders)

The power to remove souls from oneself and others. Sub-power of Soul Manipulation. Not to be confused with Essence Removal.

Also Called

  • Soul/Spirit/Spiritual Extraction
  • Soul/Spirit/Spiritual Liberation
  • Soul/Spirit/Spiritual Removal


The user can remove the souls from others, possibly resulting in apathy and psychopathy due to lack of emotions, especially empathy. Once removed, the souls may be vulnerable to damage, and restoration of the damaged soul may cause mental damage to the victim, such as madness.
