But to actually contribute to the topic. I always saw Dio's minor antics with the world as more intimidation to try to get (or in this case keep) people on his side. It SEEMS childish from a third person point of view. But when time bending antics start to happen, you're too terrified to think about the childish implications. He'll drop the nice act and get downright brutal when it's obvious the mind games won't sway them.
Of course, Dio's always been a brilliant but petty dick. We ARE talking about a guy who burnt a dog when he was 12 to soothe his ego.
