Introduction

Guido Mista, a major ally in Vento Aureo, the fifth part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, is a hybrid zoner/rushdown character who uses his Stand, Sex Pistols, to change the properties of his bullets and the trajectory of his shots. Mista can extend his combos using the changed shots from Sex Pistols to add more hits and get followups off of moves he previously could not.

On offense, Mista is all about playing from a distance and making sure the opponent doesn't get in by using precise shots from his revolver. "Gonna light you up!" fires his revolver in the basic fashion, but this can be changed up a bit by using "Time to get to work!", loading a Sex Pistol into the next bullet he fires; this changes its trajectory a bit more to track and adds more hits per Sex Pistol loaded. Mista can also deploy Sex Pistols with "Places, everyone!", allowing him to use "Pass, pass, pass!" in order to shoot more precisely at the opponent by ricocheting off of the deployed Sex Pistols. Mista's HHA fires shrapnel across the entire screen, making it impossible to jump over, and his GHA fires all of his bullets with a Pistol riding each one, causing them to home in on the opponent; both of these moves refill his bullets as well as resetting all of his Sex Pistols, making them great tools to either cash out on damage or keep the opponent at bay.

On defense, Mista really struggles: while he has access to an invincible meterless reversal in "I'll ask the damn questions!", its slow speed makes it unreliable. His best option for defense is his HHA, as he can easily stop an opponent who is jumping in front of him, but not so much if they end up directly above and behind him. Mista wants to play defensively by making sure the opponent plays his game and keeping them in a combo for a long time.

  • Sex Pistols: Mista can load his Sex Pistols into his next bullet to change its properties or deploy them on the screen in order to ricochet off of them and make sure he hits the opponent.
  • Unlucky Number 4: Whenever Mista is hit or blocks an attack while he has 4 bullets left in his revolver's chamber, he loses HH Gauge per hit taken.
  • Piercing Bullets: While in Resolve Mode, Mista's bullets will pierce through non-HHA/GHA projectiles, in addition to becoming unreflectable.
Playstyle
JJASBR Mista Small Icon.png Guido Mista is a Stand character who utilizes his Sex Pistols to provide tricky zoning and extensive combos against the opponent.
Pros Cons
  • Tricky Zoning: By using Sex Pistols, Mista can make it much harder to beat or avoid his bullets, making him excellent at zoning.
  • Meter Battery: Mista does not use a lot of meter, as he is usually zoning, meaning he can save it for when he really needs it or to cash out on damage.
  • OTG Extender: "Gonna light you up!" can extend his OTGs to be very long in order to draw out the timer or installs.
  • High Execution: Mista's Sex Pistols are central to extending combos, requiring dexterity to load more into a bullet as combos progress. When combined with the need of setting Pistols in specific formations, this leads to Mista having deceptively hard combo routing.
  • Unlucky Number 4: Although uncommon, Mista will lose meter under certain conditions, which can cause him to lose everything very quickly.
  • Walls: Walls are almost always a huge detriment to Mista's combos, causing them to drop often. This leads Mista to try to keep the opponent away from the wall at all times.

Ammunition

JJASBR Ammunition-Sex Pistols Gauge.png

Most of Mista's special moves fire his revolver; as such, they are dependent on Ammunition in order to work. Mista's current Ammunition count is represented by the Ammunition Icons (colloquially called simply "bullets") which can be seen above his HH Gauge. He can carry a total of six bullets at any time, with the bullets having different colors depending on their current state:

  • Loaded bullets are colored purple.
  • Fired bullets are colored black.
  • Bullets that have at least one Sex Pistol loaded will flash red.

Ammunition is reloaded automatically when Mista tries to fire an empty revolver, but it can also done manually with "Reload" or "Quick Reload".

However, if Mista only has 4 loaded bullets, Unlucky Number 4 will take effect. When active, Mista will lose a certain amount of HH Gauge if he is hit by (or blocks) an opponent's attack. The amount of HH Gauge drained depends on the attack used against Mista, being much greater if Mista is hit directly than if he were to block the attack; for multi-hit attacks, Mista will lose HH Gauge per hit, meaning that a long combo can cause Mista to lose a lot of meter.

Sex Pistols

Unlike other Stand characters, Mista's Stand, Sex Pistols, is always active. As a result of this, Mista's Stand interacts with his moveset in unique ways:

  • Sex Pistols help Mista to hit all of his shots, being used either to change the properties of the bullets he fires or to ricochet the bullets towards the opponent.
  • "Time to get to work!" will load a Pistol into the next bullet fired by "Gonna light you up!" or "Pass, pass, pass!", changing how many hits it does and how much damage it deals, in addition to adding a tracking effect whose potency increases the more Sex Pistols are loaded.
  • "Places, everyone!" sets up a Pistol on the screen to ricochet a shot off of and can be done with all of his Sex Pistols. With at least one Pistol set, Mista gains access to "Pass, pass, pass!", where he fires directly to the Sex Pistols and lets them handle all the aiming.
  • All of the Sex Pistols can be reset by using "Get back here!", allowing Mista to load the next bullet or set up for ricochets in more desirable ways.

Mista fires 6 bullets from his revolver.

  • Assault Assist Stocks: 2
  • Reversal Assist Stocks: 2
  • Based on 236M
  • The bullets do not act as a true blockstring, but do combo into each other on hit.
  • Each additional bullet is considered a separate move from the first shot. As such, the Assist is considered to be 6 moves, therefore adding six steps towards damage scaling.

Mista loads a Sex Pistol into his next bullet.

  • Loading a Sex Pistol into a bullet increases its number of hits and damage, and adds a bit of tracking, all of which increase when more Sex Pistols are loaded.

  • Uniquely, this move can also be used during these specific scenarios:
    • When Mista is moving, including while jumping and during a Dodge.

  • Conversely, it cannot be used on the following situations:
    • While Mista is in the middle of an attack that whiffs.
    • If Mista has no bullets available.

  • Having a Pistol deployed on the field doesn't disable loading Pistols that aren't deployed into bullets.
  • If Sex Pistols are loaded into a bullet, pressing 5S while the bullet is travelling will cause all the loaded Sex Pistols to deploy at the bullet's current location.

Mista unloads his revolver with Sex Pistols riding a bullet each, causing them to home in on the opponent. On hit, Mista reloads his revolver and unloads again, this time with every bullet being passed between Sex Pistols to deal even more damage to the opponent as they are turned into swiss cheese.

  • Resets all Sex Pistols and reloads all bullets.
  • Unaffected by previous Sex Pistols actions.
  • Each bullet of the activator deals individual damage, potentially lowering its damage at further ranges.
    • Damage listed assumes all bullets connect.
  • Frame advantage on hit leaves enough time to buffer 66 > TK j.236M > 66 > 236H OTG.
  • Frame disadvantage listed refers to point-blank use, which causes some bullets to miss.
    • Move is -51 on block if all 6 bullets are blocked a bit further away from point-blank.
