Cioccolata is a minor antagonist in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. He is a member of Diavolo's elite team Unità Speciale, alongside his servant Secco, and one of the last two Stand Users that Team Bucciarati faces before their confrontation with the Boss. Cioccolata wields the Stand known as Green Day.
In Japanese, Cioccolata is voiced by Ryuzou Ishino in the PS2 game GioGio's Bizarre Adventure, Naoya Uchida in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle, and Atsushi Miyauchi in the anime adaptation. In English, he is voiced by Bill Butts in the anime's dub.
A student who was always at the top of his class, Cioccolata volunteered to take care of the elderly at the age of fourteen, a act noble enough for the mayor to give a commendation. Despite this noble guise, this was the perfect breeding ground for Cioccolata's habits, feeding them unclean food and drugs while also abusing his patients psychologically. These torture would usually end with the subject often taking their own lives, with Cioccolata recording their expressions of true despair. After doing this to nine people and securing the material in twenty-five tapes, Cioccolata moved on to become a surgeon, delivering purposeful misdiagnoses to operate them and delivering low does of anesthetic for them to view his deeds. He was eventually caught after killing one of his patients, and despite being fired, the death was considered an accident by the authorities.
At some other point, he manages to acquire his underling and former test subject Secco. Together, they entered Passione, used only as a last resort from Diavolo due to their genocidal, unloyal habits. The anime also reveals that he was the one who cut Sorbet to pieces to give as a warning to La Squadra, a act so frightening that Gelato chose to smother himself with his own gag to save his own life from further torture.
In the present, Cioccolata and Secco are first mentioned by Diavolo when he tells Doppio that there is no other choice but to turn to them in order to stop Buccelati's Gang at Rome. Diavolo orders Doppio to look after them, knowing that they would cause mayhem and destruction throughout the city. When Bucciarati and the rest strand on Rome, they notice that all of the people around the harbor are either dead or dying because of Cioccolata's stand, Green Day, that inflicts deadly mold on living organisms. Cioccolata himself is observing from a distance in glee while Secco records everything on a videotape. Narancia and Trish are inflicted by the mold but they manage to strand without it spreading any further.
When Bucciarati manages to hijack a car, Cioccolata takes on a helicopter to fly above the city so that he could spread the mold even further which results in mass casualties around Rome. After noticing that Bucciarati is unaffected by the mold, Secco challenges him on a duel while Giorno and Mista decide to take on Cioccolata himself. Giorno uses his Gold Experience to turn Sex Pistols' bullets into vines and manages to reach Cioccolata's helicopter. Cioccolata sneaks up on Giorno by severing himself to pieces and then knocks Giorno off the heli.
Giorno has an ace up his sleeve, as he uses one of the pistols' bullets to hit Cioccolata in the head, mortally wounding him and causing the helicopter to trap on the vines. Cioccolata pretends to be dead, only to use his severed hand to sneak up on Mista and threatening to slit his throat. Fortunately, Giorno had turned the bullet inside Cioccolata's head into a stag beetle which destroys his head and brain from the inside. Giorno then finishes Cioccolata, beating him with Gold Experience within an inch of his life until pieces of his flesh start flying, before knocking him off the roof and into a combustible garbage disposal truck, killing the vile gangster for good.
|“|| Narrator: Cioccolata. 34 years old, former physician. Two years ago, after a minor error seemingly killed a patient, he was let go from the hospital, and picked up by Passione. He had suffered a humiliating fall from grace, but the boss soon realized Cioccolata's value when the young doctor acquired a Stand. It was not a mistake that had killed the patient, but Cioccolata's murderous motives. He would purposely misdiagnose healthy individuals to get them on his operating table! Part of his routine involved reducing their anesthesia, so they would wake up during surgery. Even as a child, he was at the top of his class. At the age of fourteen, he decided to begin volunteering at nursing homes. Little did people know, however, that the teenager was administering unknown drugs to his elderly charges. And also...|
Cioccolata: Your family tells me you're nothing but a burden, and they can't stand the sight of you.
Narrator: Each day, he'd whisper venomous lies, driving those in his care to suicide. Sitting on his bookshelf at home were twenty-five tapes, in which he had documented the horrified expressions of his victims. Once he had claimed nine lives, Cioccolata has decided to become a doctor. No activity brought him more ecstasy than observing death in action, and being a physician allowed him to watch the dying suffer up close. To see his victims decay in such vivid detail filled him with a sense of superiority, and made him feel as if he truly understood the mind of man. Cioccolata's sole partner in his depravities was Secco. Little is known beyond the fact he was once Cioccolata's patient. Their chemistry led to a arrangement where Secco only follows Cioccolata's orders. And even among Passione's many vile-hearted Stand Users, the wickedness of this particular duo stands out. So goes the story of Cioccolata and Secco.

Powers and Abilities
|“||As long as it's living, then Cioccolata's Green Day... will kill it... always...||„|
Cioccolata's stand, Green Day, has many similarities with Fugo's Purple Haze, but instead of toxins, it has the ability to destroy the flesh of living organisms using a freshly produced mold. The said mold causes the victim tremendous pain and agony as their body falls apart slowly. This power has a drawback however, since the mold can only spread further when the user moves to a higher altitude than the victim. The higher the altitude, the faster the spread. Things that are not living have an immunity to this power as the mold cannot be produced on lifeless subjects. Cioccolata can also use the mold on himself, which doesn't kill him but allows him to amputate himself one limb at a time and then close all of the blood vessels to prevent bleeding, meaning that he can also reanimate his limbs while in pieces by having the mold connect all the nerves. Unlike Purple Haze, which inflicts the virus within a 10 meter radius, Green Day has a seemingly infinite range, as the mold can spread from one corpse to another. This makes its ability very dangerous in largely populated areas, causing massive amounts of carnage and destruction in a cataclysmic fashion.
- Cioccolata is in fact so deranged and repulsive that everyone in the organization despises him. Even Diavolo refers to him and Secco as scum and feels disgusted with himself for asking for their assistance. This, however, seems more like a pragmatic reason as Diavolo hates Cioccolata because of his chaotic nature which is bound to get him unwanted attention, yet he still dispatches him upon Bucciarati's crew despite the mass civilian casualties.
- Cioccolata's name is a feminine form for the word "cioccolato", which is Italian for "chocolate".
- Oddly, his name was switched to the more correct Cioccolato partway through the original Weekly Shonen Jump publication, though this name change is ignored in most media.
- Cioccolata suffers the longest beatdown in the entire series which lasts for seven pages in total (30 seconds in the anime), surpassing even Steely Dan, whose beating lasted three pages (roughly 20 seconds in the anime).
- The volume release of Cioccolata's beatdown had two extra pages added to it that were not present in the original release of it in Weekly Shonen Jump.
- Cioccolata is considered to be the darkest and most evil villain in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise, due to his excessively sadistic personality, history and actions. He is the only character aside from Pucci and Dio to attempt to cause deaths in the millions as he attempts to kill everyone in Rome, in contrast to J. Geil and Angelo, who only caused deaths in the dozens.
- Green Day's lower body is never shown in the original manga. The PS2 game, which adapts the story, gave it a slug-like foot whereas the anime adaptation gave it regular human feet.
