Polnareff AA

I-I'll tell you exactly what just happened!” (あ…ありのまま今起こった事を話すぜ!, A-arinomama ima okotta koto o hanasu ze!) is a scene in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure that conveys Polnareff's shock after experiencing DIO's stand. It's been turned into AA and had became a meme.


In Stardust Crusaders, DIO appears atop a staircase where Polnareff was recovering and uses his stand to mess with him. His stand's ability hadn't been revealed at the time, so we get a short scene of Polnareff frantically trying to explain “what just happened” to his allies who came bursting in. Further reading suggests that DIO used his stand, The World, to stop time and place him down a few steps as he's walking up.1)
