Rubber Soul is a
user of the Yellow Temperance Stand, which allows him to devour flesh,
enlarge himself, and assume any form. He first appears diguised as Noriaki
where (unknown to Jotaro at the
time) his (Noriaki) strange behavior makes Jotaro punch him, which causes
a seemingly unremovable glob to attach to Jotaro's hand; neither ice nor
fire can remove it. As the two engage in a battle inside a cable car again,
Jotaro breaks the bottom of the cable car, drowns Rubber Soul in the lake
underneath so that Rubber Soul is forced to deactivate his stand to breath,
thus removes Jotaro's glob. Jotaro threatens Rubber Soul to give information
about Dio's squad, which Rubber Soul knows little about. However, Rubber
Soul manages to reach the land nearby and sends Yellow Temperance through
a manhole to noose Jotaro. Jotaro counters by blocking the entire manhole,
sending water pressure back to Rubber Soul, drowns him once again and beats
him to the depths.
A running gag in the
chapters is Rubber Soul's unusual taste for fruits and other living beings.
Before his identity is being discovered, he eats cherries by rolling them
with his tongue and making "rero rero" sounds. Later after Jotaro defeats
Rubber Soul he finds out that the real Noriaki likes to play with cherries
in the same manner...
In the game, JoJo's
Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future; He is disguised as Noriaki
for the most of the time, and has some similar moves as Noriaki does. The
major differences are that Rubber Soul does not have a stand mode, and
that he is not as fast as Noriaki is to deliver large combo, and he is
voiced by the same seiyuu as Noriaki. Rubber Soul is named after The Beatles
album, "Rubber Soul".
