Dio Brando (Japanese: ディオ・ブランドー, Hepburn: Dio Burandō) is a fictional character appearing in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki. He is the main antagonist of the series' first part, Phantom Blood, appearing in the debut chapter "Dio the Invader" (侵略者ディオ, Shinryakusha Dio), published in Weekly Shōnen Jump in 1987. He later returns as the main antagonist of the series' third part, Stardust Crusaders. Now solely known as DIO (DIOディオ), he is a powerful vampire and user of the time-stopping Stand named The World. DIO was 121 years, 9 months and 6 days old.

The poor son of Dario Brando, an abusive alcoholic who worked Dio's mother to death, Dio holds an inordinate amount of enmity toward others. As the series' most prolific villain, his defining trait is his staunch ambition, which manifests in a peerless desire for power, no matter the cost. In the alternate universe of the series' seventh part, Steel Ball Run, a character named Diego Brando (ディエゴ・ブランドー, Diego Burandō) bears resemblance to Dio and appears as a major antagonist.
