Dio / Neo Dio
dio-worldheroes-portrait.gif (7979 bytes)


Dio is the final boss of World Heroes 2. Because of the failure of his previous creation, Geegus, Damudo created a new, stronger, better artificial soldier: Dio. However, Dio developed his own consciousness and now roams different eras, killing many people. "Neo Dio" is an improved version of Dio that returns to exact revenge. Neo Dio's name translates into "New God" (and is ironically spelled similarly to Neo Geo). 

Fun Facts: Neo Dio parodies some of Dio Brando's lines from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, including "Wryyy!" and "Muda muda!". Visually, Neo Dio shares a resemblance to Ikuro Hashizawa when he transforms into Baoh, and is apparently based on the "Ultimate Life Forms" of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (hence some of his win quotes).

World Heroes Perfect, Neogeo Battle Coliseum, Card Fighters Clash DS 


Page Updated:  Jan. 11th, 2014

His design was kinda sketchy/laughable in the World Heroes series, but SNK reinvented him in NeoGeo Battle Coliseum... making him a lot cooler to say the least. Nobody expected Neo Dio to return to fighting games, which in itself made his comeback pretty effective. He also lost the silly pink hair, and obtained a cooler looking moveset. Although... his "re-design" does resemble Gill for obvious reasons. :/
