They're mid tier in the overall JoJoverse. Ultimate Cars is upper-mid tier. They can beat weaker stands like Emperor, Hierophant Green, Magician's Red, etc. but they lose to higher ranked stands like Star Platinum, The World, Crazy Diamond, Killer Queen, and the like. That's not even getting into more powerful stands like Cream and White Snake. --- PSN: Alaster_Angelo http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6jn7vfYqd1qi7eg5o1_1280.jpg
It's just weird. Since bows and arrows have been around for at least a 1000 years. Stand users could have easily subjugate the pillarmen's race, but ripple was used instead. The once considered ultimate beings turned out to be inferior to humans with stands.
