"A unit of Egyptian foot-soldiers, 30 in total, made entirely out of electricity. Attacks with spears, but does damage using electric currents rather than physical force. As a result, its destructive power is relative to the conductivity of its target, and it can disperse its attacks at will." (In-Game Description)

"A quiet and composed intellectual. Shy and hard to get to know, you often read too much into what others say. However, when entrusted with something important, you'll pour your entire heart into it. You're a good listener, but like to argue for the sake of argument, matter-of-factly drawing your conclusions." (Personality Evaluation)

Base Stats[]

In addition to these base stats, the Stand itself gives a bonus of Power/Spirit +1 and Speed +2.

1God of Thunder is learned before the battle with Joey in the Fishing Village if your level is 40 or above, but can still be learned at level 50 otherwise.

2Thunder Phalanx and Lightning Whip can be learned randomly by staying in the hotel with Joseph. The latter can also be learned rarely by staying with Abdul instead. When getting Lightning Whip your character will talk about how Joseph's stand isn't fighting based, when getting Thunder Phalanx Joseph will talk about how you have many stands but could control them better.

Author's Notes[]

In short, "someone who reads too deeply". The image of electricity expresses the tense personality of a person who is intelligent but refuses to give up on things. Electricity also represents the intelligence of mechanical civilization. While the user is not a bad person, they're the kind of person who gets angry at others for answering their problems with sound arguments.


  • Pharoah Sanders' name is a pun; in Japanese, Sanders (サンダース, Sandaazu) is identical in pronunciation to "Thunders".
  • According to Clayman, Pharoah Sanders represents the Enneagram type 6w5.
