Diego Brando from Another World (並行世界から来たディエゴ Heikō Sekai kara Kita Diego), also referred to as Alternate Diego Brando, or just Alternate Diego, is the final antagonist featured in Steel Ball Run.
This Diego is introduced to the "root world" of the Corpse by Funny Valentine after the death of the original. He is a racer from a similar Steel Ball Run happening in another parallel world. As a final precaution, the President had tasked this Diego with coveting the Saint's Corpse in his place, should he be defeated by Johnny Joestar. Alternate Diego confronts Johnny in the final stage of the "root world" Steel Ball Run.
He is a Stand User like his original counterpart, but unlike the original, does not wield Scary Monsters. This version of Diego possess the mighty Stand THE WORLD, which is stated to be the true Stand of all Diegos, but the original Diego had not unlocked his own version before his demise.

Differing slightly in appearance, this Stand replaces hearts in its design with "D" emblems (e.g. on its knees), sports clocks on its shoulders and hips, and lacks the gloves/knuckle plates on its arm braces as well as a belt. It possesses a much slimmer physique while removing its pseudo-robotic arm pivots and knee hinges with joints under solid "skin" to appear more humanlike.
