ZIO has the ability to use ZA WARUDO, which is a manually activated ability. This ability freezes or stops the enemies within his range from moving for 5 seconds. Enemies outside his range are unaffected and continue moving. It has a 50 second cooldown, which includes the 5 seconds of freezing. It is recommended to use Mysterious X instead because his Timestop lasts 0.7 seconds longer.

Road Roller

An upgraded version of ZA WARUDO where ZIO stops time and then drops a road roller onto enemies. The damage dealt is six times ZIO's damage. This also has a 50 second cooldown.


Troops sell for half their cost of deployment plus upgrades.


  • His name went from Zio Brundo to ZIO due to him being only referred to DIO in Part 3.
  • ZIO is the only unit in the game with two manually activated abilities.
  • ZIO is the second cheapest timestop unit in game, the cheapest being Jokato Koju.
  • ZIO was the first tradeable unit in the game to have an evolution. Due to this, a trading outburst of Dios occurred, with price gouging going as high as Kovegu for a few of these.
  • Despite ZIO having Jon Jo's body, none are needed to evolve into him, but five are required for ZIO (ASCENDED).
  • ZIO also appears as the boss of the final mission in the the Burning Savana Story Mode Map.
