Terraria Mods Wiki

Stands are the main feature of the mod. They allow the player to use a variety of abilities depending on the Stand that's equipped. Each Stand has it's own set of abilities, and can be upgraded into more powerful tiers as you progress through the game. Upgrading a Stand enhances it's stats and unlocks new powers, or upgrades powers that it already had.

From the Fandom Wiki:

"Stands are defined as personifications of "life energy" (although it's later changed to "spiritual energy") whose abilities are given visual form. When first presented, the term is written as "Stand" (Sutando), with furigana to change the pronunciation of what literally means "Ghostly Ripple" (幽波紋 Yūhamon) in kanji. According to Joseph Joestar, the name "Stand" comes from the fact they usually manifest standing next to the User: ready to act. Stands can come in many different shapes and sizes, they also have many different abilities (Such as, Stop Time, Erase Time, Control the Weather, etc).

A Stand can also represent the manifestation of an individual's innate "fighting spirit" and embodies, to an extent, the individual's psyche. However, Stands may also derive through the exploration of possibilities and expression of the mind, in which case, only a large amount of mental strength is required. Beyond that definition, Stands present themselves in a large variety of forms and with different behaviors, if they are sentient at all. They follow a loose set of rules, with no definite standard by which one can fully classify them. As an embodiment of someone's psyche, Stands are therefore as varied as human minds can be.

Due to their diversity, Stands are not made equal. Some can be incredibly powerful due to their User's outstanding grit, others can be highly situational because of a defining quirk of character, or even detrimental to their User if they do not have the necessary fighting spirit.

When Stands were first introduced in Stardust Crusaders, they were named after the cards of the Arcana of the Tarot, and sometimes a color (the color of the Stands body), and then Ancient Egyptian deities, with their designs often featuring motifs of those cards or mythological figures. Towards the end of Stardust Crusaders and in all subsequent story arcs, Stand names are references to musicians, bands, albums, and songs from American, Australian, British, and European music scenes; only one Stand's name has ever referenced Japanese music.

Stands are connected to an alien virus contained in the rock of a meteorite that fell in Cape York, Greenland. It is explained that the virus can infect people and for the most part kills them, but the few who survive are granted a Stand ability."

Stand Stats[]

Stands have their own set of stats, as they have their own damage class. Stand Users can equip Accessories in order to enhance certain stats. Stands have their own Damage: Crit Chance, Attack Speed, Ability Cooldown, and Player Defense boost. Take into account that some stats are more important to certain Stands than others. For example, Sex Pistols doesn't benefit from Stand Damage boosts, as it gives a fixed boost to Ranged Damage, as it works around guns.

Obtaining Stands[]

There are five ways to obtain a Stand:


Upon spawning your character in for the first time, there is a 20% chance to spawn with a random Stand's tier 1 upon creating a new player. This is considered Inheritance.

Arrow Shard[]

The way most players will get their first stand is by asking Jotaro the Marine Biologist for Stand Help, and he'll give you an Arrow Shard, which you can use use to stab yourself and manifest a Stand. Doing this will give you a buff named Pierced! that lasts 10 minutes. After this wears off, you will receive a random Stand's Tier 1. If you die before the Pierced! buff wears off, the Pierced! buff will go away, but Jotaro will give you another Arrow Shard. After you get a Stand, Jotaro won't give you any more Arrow Shards, and the Stand Help option will start giving you advice about the Stand you have in the Stand Slot.

Viral Meteorite[]

After getting a Stand from Jotaro, you won't be able to get another Stand until after killing Skeletron. Doing so will cause a Viral Meteorite to fall the next morning. You can make Viral Meteorite Bars using this, which you can use to create Stand Arrows at the Remix Table. You can either use it as it is to see if the arrow deems you worthy, or you may combine the Stand Arrow with a Will to create a Stand of your choice.

How to summon your Stand[]

1. Put the Stand in the Stand Slot
2. Bind a key to "Stand Out" in Controls
3. Press the "Stand Out" bind while the Stand is in the slot. All Stands takes up 1 minion slot, so if you're playing as a Summoner, you'll need to save a slot for your Stand.
