|“||I do not fear death, but I don't want to be killed by that man... evil needs a savior as well...||„|
|~ N. Doul|
N'Doul is a minor antagonist from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders.
In Japanese, he was voiced by Yūji Kishi in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future, Kouji Nakata in the OVA, and Kentaro Ito in both JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven and the anime. In English, he was voiced by an uncredited voice actor in the OVA and Greg Chun in the anime.
N'Doul was born a blind man, living his life as a beggar and using his stand powers to commit small crimes without being noticed. However, he wanted to find someone who saw his true value. One day, he met with Dio Brando, becoming instantly enticed by him, as he could see his value. Dio convinced N'Doul to help him defeat his enemies, sending him to kill Jotaro an his group as soon as they arrived in Egypt. N. Doul attacks the group in the middle of the desert, standing kilometers of distance from them. An helicopter of the Speedwagon Foundation rendezvous with the group, bringing supplies as well as Iggy, a dog who controlled the Fool stand. After Iggy messes around with Polnareff, he notices the presence of N'Doul watching over them.
N'Doul in initially attacks the helicopter shortly after it takes off, killing one of the SPW crew members. The group come to rescue the crew, finding one of them near death. Joseph tries to give him water from their canteen, but a water hand comes out of it and decapitates the man. The water hand appears again, slicing Kakyoin's eyes and attacking the wristwatch of the dead crew when it's alarm runs off, which is when the group realizes they are being tracked by the sound vibrations. The group all jump inside their car, but the stand attacks again, creating a hole on the sand to drag the car. N'Doul notices when Iggy jumps out of the car after anticipating his attack, but decides to leave him be when Iggy just starts to sleep.
Avdol attempts to trick the stand by using his bracelets, tossing them in front of himself to simulate his steps. However, N'Doul notices the trick when the steps suddenly stop, dodging Avdol's attack and hitting him. He prepares to finish Avdol, but Jotaro suddenly starts running. He noticed Iggy could sense the presence of the enemy, so he grabs the dog and forces him to tell him where he is. Iggy uses his stand to form a glider, so Jotaro grabs him and lets him carry him. When he kicks the ground to give impulsion to Iggy, N'Doul is finally able to track them, realizing they are floating, so his stand starts pursuing them, scattering sand around to use as a sonar to track their exact location. Iggy attempts to leave Jotaro behind and escape, but Jotaro grabs the dog and toss him on N. Doul's direction, forcing the two to defend themselves from the collision. Jotaro uses the distraction to safely approach N'Doul, attacking him from behind.
Defeated, N'Doul uses his stand to attack himself on the head, in order to prevent them from interrogating him. Before dying, N'Doul reveals how he doesn't want to be killed by Dio, not out of fear but of his admiration of him, also telling about himself and his stand, named Geb after one of the nine Egyptian Gods of prosperity. As he dies, Jotaro buries his body beneath the desert sand.

- N'Doul is named after the Senegalese artist Youssou N'Dour.
- Geb's abilities was inspired after series creator Hirohiko Araki heard a story of someone drowning with just a cup's worth of water in a washbasin, and thought after reading it about the idea of someone drowning in a desert being interesting.
