|Japanese Name||ソニック・ユース (Sonikku Yuusu)|
|Namesake||Sonic Youth (alternative rock band)|
|User (Default Name)||音峰 (Otomine)|
"A humanoid Stand that can manipulate sound. Depending on the melody it plays, it can create powerful shockwaves, sharp air blades, or echolocation-based radar just by strumming on its guitar. In addition, it can use hypnosis to induce various effects on opponents and allies alike." (In-Game Description)
"You're a methodical person who doesn't like to leave a job undone, but you're also very excitable and cheerful. Family-oriented, you are unguarded and immediately open up around anyone. You're friendly, have a great sense of humor, and take pride in your strong sense of right and wrong. You're easily touched by the sentimental, and are sometimes taken in by sob-stories." (Personality Evaluation)
Base Stats[edit | edit source]
In addition to these base stats, the Stand itself gives a bonus of Speed +2 and Durability/Spirit +1.
Sonic Youth has a very high Spirit stat, allowing it to hit hard with wind-based attacks. This inflicts BlowBack fairly easily, but the real strength of Sonic Youth lies in its wide array of stat-altering moves. The late-game skills Recital and Orchestra in particular are extremely powerful, and Recital comes with the added bonuses of inflicting statuses and lowering SP.
The recommended tactic for Sonic Youth is Flee, which reduces its inconsequential Power stat in exchange for Speed.
