SPOILERS FOR JOJO PART 5!

Diavolo is my favourite villain.
He also happens to be incredibly interesting to psychologically dissect.

Let’s talk.

    Actually, the thing about two diffrent souls does not contradict the analysis unless we go with the version where diavolo was just always seperate. Like you said in the video, we can take it as the series just putting an over the top-spin on the situration where Diavolo managed to develop his own fractured off soul after some time as he was the one in charge for most of the time, which is why he is older than doppio. This is supported by the script by his soul not being normal. It does not switch bodies normally when affected by silver chariot requiem.
    There are also some interessting deeper topics regarding how split personalities interact in jojo, but that is unnessesary trivia overall.

    What is also interessting to note is that Doppio and DIavolo seem to have their own issues that they just cannot move past. Doppio suffers from a fragile mind(to the point where there was a moment where he blew up in anger for no reason and diavolo of all people actually had to calm him down) and an actual sick and insane denial of any kind of hardship and weight of what he does and what happens. He does not seem to remember the past correctly or just does not care. It does not occur to him that there is something majorly wrong with the year he is walking in relative to his age and even when diavolo is not in control, he rather talks around any issue of discomfort and moves away from it.

    Meanwhile, Diavolo completely accepts what is happening and is a much more stable person who seems more aware. His issue however is his crippling addiction to be at the top as an invincible individual and his unwillingness to change. He will always try the same approach even when he already should know that it is not going to work. He could easily win his fights, but he has this incredible ego that even Dio could not compete with that makes him monologue during times he really should not and thus giving up his advantage. He even does stupid stuff just to mess with people because he thinks himself above others.(case in point, his confrontation with polnareff. He pretends to be doppio just to mess with the guy and then says "you are beneath me!". In that scenario, had he not shown himself, he could have easily done a sneakattack of some kind.) To top it off, he does not care about anyone really. He does not have the willingness or compassion to form real bonds in his insistance to purge his past, so he has no one to fall back on if things go south. Well, except doppio of course, but he is not really helping that much.

    This actually reminds me of a fan comic I read
    Diavolo: Doppio isn't evil, he just lacks empathy and goes into disassociative states and commits attrocities. I, on the other hand am evil.

    In our country there is a saying that goes:
    "He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination."
    It's very similar to Diavolo's case. In his pursuit of anonymity and power, he has forgotten and tried to erase his past, which is his last and only trace left of his humanity.

    Plot Twist: Doppio was born with a Stand, King Crimson, but his weak spirit caused King Crimson to affect him. Like how Holly's Stand made her physically sick. King Crimson made Doppio mentally sick. This resulted in the creation of the Diavolo personality to deal with his Stand. Then after finding the Stand Arrows, Doppio/Diavolo used one to awaken Epitaph, in the same way Kira awakened Bites The Dust on being pierced a second time by the Stand Arrow.

    Diavolo is such a well written character. Idk how Araki even came up with this idea but I love how despite the slight exaggeration, it all perfectly makes sense

    I actually really genuinely enjoyed watching this, the analysis itself, I didn't find any points I disagreed with and in general all of them sound, quite genuinely, really reasonable for someone we know so little about, Doppio being the original personality would be pretty likely, looking at the connection between your points and the source, although how they could be completely different souls if they were separated individually during the body swap is questionable, it might just be another exaggeration on Araki's half if it turns out they really are.

    Multiple personality disorder and DID are the exact same thing. the DSM just reclassified it more recently from multiple personality disorder to DID or dissaociative identity disorder

    I don't think Epitaph is Doppio's stand since, in the final arc of the history, their 'souls' are separated in two bodies and Doppio dies (?), but Diavolo can still use both stands without restrictions.

    As someone with D.I.D I think I know why his ability to earse time is because when someone with D.I.D switches they feel as there time has been earse and don't know how long they been gone for sometimes.
