The JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series features a large cast of characters created by Hirohiko Araki. Spanning several generations, the series is split into eight parts, each following a different descendant of the Joestar family. Parts 7 and 8 take place in a separate continuity from the previous six. Many of the characters have supernatural abilities which give them a variety of unique traits.

Creation and conception[edit]

Part 1: Phantom Blood[edit]

When first beginning the series, Dio Brando is the character that Araki looked forward to drawing the most. Inspired by FBI profiling of serial killers and how they control their victims through psychological manipulation, he gave Dio a similar trait, using his charisma to ensure his followers do his bidding. Araki revealed that he had not thought up a weakness for the character and that it was difficult to come up with a way for Dio to be defeated.[1] As the first Joestar, Araki created Jonathan to be "a symbol of purity and dignity", which he admitted might have resulted in him being "boring." Jonathan's physical transformation during the seven year skip was done with his upcoming battle with Dio in mind and inspired by muscular film actors popular at the time, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. A fan of karate manga as a child, Araki also wanted JoJo to exude an aura of strength like in Karate Baka Ichidai, leading to the character learning the supernatural Hamon technique.[2] As Jonathan's teacher, Araki modeled Will A. Zeppeli after martial arts masters in Jackie Chan movies and Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid, whose "silly" appearances hide their strength. Araki dressed him as a magician and modeled his mustache after those of Salvador Dalí and the character Iyami from Osomatsu-kun. The Zeppeli name is derived from the English rock band Led Zeppelin.[3]

Part 2: Battle Tendency[edit]

Because it was "unprecedented" to kill off the main character in a Weekly Shōnen Jump manga, and wanting to shift from physical battles to more "cerebral" fights, Araki made Part 2's protagonist look very similar to Jonathan but with a more adventurous and confrontational personality. The author referred to Joseph as "a muscle-bound B.T.", the main character from his earlier series Cool Shock B.T.; a shōnen manga hero who bends the rules as he fights.[4] Having not been able to show a friendly rivalry between Jonathan and Dio, Araki introduced Caesar Zeppeli to present a more positive friendly rivalry between him and Joseph. Wanting each user to have a different type of Hamon with a unique design, he gave Caesar the seemingly fleeting-bubbles as a "representation of his fate and the burden he is carrying." He enjoys giving characters weapons with faults and having them make up for it with strategy. The author stated that these "spheres" were inherited by both Gyro Zeppeli in Steel Ball Run and Josuke Higashikata in JoJolion.[5] Araki created the warrior-type Lisa Lisa, based on a neighborhood girl he knew as a child, to stand out compared to previous shōnen manga female characters who were typically cute and designed to be "a man's ideal woman". He stated that at the time it was hard to get Japanese readers to remember a foreign name, so he chose something with repetition.[6] Having to surpass Dio, the Pillar Men's designs were based on Roman statues, Egyptian sphinxes and Japanese nio statues to give them godlike features. Araki designed Kars with a turban to show his superior intelligence and that he is their king, his Brilliant Bone Blade ability harkening to Araki's earlier series Baoh.[7]

Part 3: Stardust Crusaders[edit]

Although a Japanese protagonist, Araki modeled Jotaro after American actor Clint Eastwood, including his poses and catchphrases. Although the author said the character might seem "rough" compared to other Jump protagonists, Jotaro fits his own image of a hero perfectly as a "loner" who does not do the right thing for attention. Araki said the character wearing his school uniform in the desert has its roots in Mitsuteru Yokoyama's Babel II, and that if he were to draw the part over again, he would base the Stands on Tetsujin 28-go.[8] Araki said he had a lot of readers asking him to bring older characters back. Although he is not a fan of bringing them back simply for nostalgia, he did not hesitate having Joseph return to save his daughter because it is completely true to the character. The author thought of having Joseph drop out partway through due to his age, but ended up "playing it by ear" as serialization continued. He gave him the role of "navigator", introducing the readers to the Joestar family, Dio, Hamon and Stands, and his own Stand being a support ability rather than offensive.[9] Araki said he gave Avdol an "ethnic" design to have some sort of connection to Egypt and that at the time of serialization, he and most of the readers had a strong interest in the "birthplaces of civilization," making the design a "product of the times."[10]

Araki stated that he had Kakyoin act as a foil to Jotaro. Although they both wear school uniforms, Kakyoin's well-tailored one gives him the feel of an honor student, while Jotaro's loose-fitting one and accessories convey that he is a delinquent. He made him Jotaro's first real Stand opponent to visually convey the concepts between short-range and long-range Stand abilities. The author revealed that he always read the kanji for Kakyoin's given name as "Tenmei," but his editor approved the reading Noriaki for the tankōbon much to his surprise.[11] In order to not have him overlap with Jotaro and Joseph, Polnareff was given a distinctive look and personality, which in turn made him shine on his own. Because he is a versatile character who could say goofy lines or serious ones, he "needed" to make more appearances. More appearances means more fights, and because he made it through so many life-or-death situations, Araki feels that Polnareff grew the most in the story. The author used foreign models as reference for his hair, and also drew it like Rudol von Stroheim's from Battle Tendency. The character's name was inspired by those of Araki's three favorite French people, actors Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo, and musician Michel Polnareff.[12] Not having any limitations on what he can put in the series, Araki has animals appear and even had one join the Joestar party. Although he feels that The Fool is a perfect fit for Iggy, it just happened to be the last tarot card for him to assign aside from The World. Additionally, he thought of assigning The Fool to an enemy instead, but things just "ended up working out the way they did." Being the first time he made an animal a major character and the first time he showed one in battle, Araki used Yoshihiro Takahashi's Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin as a reference.[13]

With the series meant to be long-running, Araki took great care in deciding which unique Stand user to put the main cast against and when, in order to keep readers interested. He designed Strength, Ebony Devil, and Yellow Temperance so that their appearances and abilities did not overlap. But as these were all one-on-one battles, he then decided to introduce Hol Horse and J. Geil as a team. He had always planned on having Noriaki Kakyoin and Jean Pierre Polnareff switch allegiances to the good guys, but not Hol Horse. Although he drew a color illustration with Hol Horse alongside the Joestar group and had the character return several times through the story, he suspects he did not go through with it because his personality overlaps with Polnareff's. He also said that because he did not put many limitations on Hol Horse's Stand, it kind of got out of control, plus it overlaps with Kakyoin's Emerald Splash. He did enjoy Hol Horse's "why be number one when you can be number two" philosophy, which the author carried over to Yoshikage Kira in Diamond Is Unbreakable, and his outlaw appearance is similar to that of Gyro Zeppeli from Steel Ball Run and might have been inspired by Buichi Terasawa's Cobra.[14]

Part 4: Diamond Is Unbreakable[edit]

With Part 4, Araki said that he moved away from "muscle men" as they fell out of popularity with his readers and he wanted to focus more on fashion. When designing his characters' outfits, Araki considers both everyday fashion and "cartoonish, bizarre clothing that would be impractical in real life." He also forgoes using specific color schemes for his characters and gives his readers different impressions through various color combinations.[15] Araki said that while he drew several characters in Parts 1 through 3 naked to evoke Greek or Roman gods, he stopped doing it so much from Part 4 onward to be a "bit closer to home."[16]

Part 5: Golden Wind[edit]

Araki said that the main focus of Golden Wind was to draw "beautiful men" who can only exist in a world where there is "beauty in meeting one's doom." He wanted the characters and fashion to be in the style of the Italian city of Rome. The curls in Giorno Giovanna's hair were inspired by Michelangelo's statue David. Araki cited Guido Mista and Prosciutto as characters he enjoyed drawing; the former due to his positive attitude and for being "true to himself without doubts" and the latter for his "brotherly relationship" with his subordinate Pesci and fun Stand power.[17] Araki decided to grant Trish Una a Stand power while writing the series, creating Carne's Stand simply for her to fight it, and had more fun drawing Carne than his Stand.[18]

Part 6: Stone Ocean[edit]

For Stone Ocean, Araki wrote a female protagonist for the first time which he found complicated, but also interesting due to the humanity she could possess.[19]

Part 7: Steel Ball Run[edit]

For Steel Ball Run, having not specifically set out on creating a disabled character, Araki explained that Johnny Joestar's Paraplegia was a natural result of wanting to show a character who could grow, both physically and mentally, during a race where "he would be forced not only to rely on other people, but horses as well."[15]

Part 8: JoJolion[edit]

For JoJolion, Araki stated that the -lion in the title is derived from the Ancient Greek εὐαγγέλιον (evangelion), in reference to the Gospels; "By combining this word with 'JoJo', I've meant for the title to signify the existence of the protagonist 'Josuke' in this world".

Characters[edit]

The series' protagonists are the members of the Joestar Family (ジョースター家, Jōsutā Ke), with a majority of its members bearing a star-shaped birthmark above their left shoulder blade. In Parts 1–6, the Joestar bloodline was inherited by the Kujo Family (空条家, Kūjō Ke) and Josuke Higashikata. Dio, having stolen Jonathan's body at the end of Part 1, fathered a few sons bearing the Joestar bloodline while awakening use of Stands in Jonathan's descendants. In the alternate universe depicted in Parts 7 and 8, Johnny Joestar marries Rina Higashikata with the Higashikata Family becoming a distant branch of the Joestar family.

Part 1: Phantom Blood[edit]

Set in England in the 1880s, the Joestar family adopts the orphaned Dio Brando.

Jonathan Joestar (ジョナサン・ジョースター, Jonasan Jōsutā)

Main article: Jonathan Joestar

The main protagonist of Phantom Blood, Jonathan is the son of George Joestar I who carries his surname with pride while striving to be a gentleman who never betrays his code of honor and defending those in need even when at a grave disadvantage. He is a passionate person, he wants to be the best at everything that he does, whether it is fighting or even table manners. Jonathan's life becomes one of misery when Dio Brando is adopted by George, eventually resulting in his father's death as Dio sought to kill both of them. This motivates Jonathan to learn how to utilize Hamon energy from Will A. Zeppeli to settle the score with Dio, though his power later increases drastically when a dying Zeppeli transfers his remaining Hamon into him.
Danny (ダニー, Danī)
A great dane owned by Jonathan Joestar, who was killed when Dio placed the dog in the incinerator to be burned to death as revenge for being defeated by Jonathan.
Dio Brando (ディオ・ブランドー, Dio Burandō)

Main article: Dio Brando

The main antagonist of the series, Dio secretly murdered his father Dario Brando before becoming a member of the Joestar household with the intent of inheriting it for himself. When this ultimately fails after Jonathan catches him in the act of poisoning George Joestar, Dio uses the Stone Mask to transform himself into a vampire with the intent of using his zombies to conquer England. Though defeated, Dio resurfaces in the 80s under the name of DIO as the antagonist of Stardust Crusaders, having took Jonathan's headless body for his own while manifesting his time-stopping Stand The World (, Za Wārudo). Despite his death at Jotaro's hands, Dio directly influenced many events that transpired in Golden Wind and Stone Ocean.
Wang Chan (ワンチェン, Wan Chen)
Wang Chan is a Chinese apothecary who provides Dio with the poison to kill George Joestar, the same kind he used to kill his own father Dario years ago. Later, he gets brought back to the Joestar Estate and narrowly escapes the flames. As Wang Chan searches for the Stone Mask in the rubble, Dio emerges and turns him into his zombie servant. He serves loyally, and after Dio's penultimate defeat, he takes his master's head on board the ship carrying Jonathan and Erina. Despite his efforts and Jonathan being mortally wounded by Dio, Wang Chan is killed by Jonathan, who uses Hamon to destroy his head and subsequently control his corpse in order to sabotage the engine of the ship and ensure its destruction with Dio and the other zombies on board.
Robert E. O. Speedwagon (ロバート・E・O・スピードワゴン, Robāto Ī Ō Supīdowagon)
Robert E. O. Speedwagon first appears as an Ogre Street thug boss attacking Jonathan, but soon realizes the young man's worthiness and dedication, becoming his good friend. He helps uncover Dio's plot to assassinate George Joestar, using poison, and from that point onward remains by Jonathan's side, helping in whatever way he could to defeat Dio. By the 1930s, Speedwagon's success upon founding his own oil company enables him to found the Speedwagon Foundation, a powerful and influential organization which assists the Joestar family a great deal in subsequent story arcs. He appears in Battle Tendency as a supporting character, where he is captured by Nazi commander Rudol von Stroheim in order to get information on the Stone Mask and the Pillar Men. He is saved by Joseph after the latter sneaks into the Mexican base that Stroheim occupies.
Will A. Zeppeli (ウィル・A・ツェペリ, Wiru Ē Tseperi)
Will A. Zeppeli was on a ship with a crew studying Aztec ruins as a young man, when his father put on the Stone Mask and killed everyone in the crew but his son. After this horrific event, Will travels the world in order to destroy the mask, and sees a man cure someone using Hamon. Will is then directed to his master, Tonpetty, who teaches him to use Hamon. However, Tonpetty foresees Will's death during his training, warning him that should he complete his training he will surely die. He trains Jonathan in Hamon after the Joestar's house burns down and joins him to destroy Dio and the mask.
Straizo (ストレイツォ, Sutoreitso)
Straizo is a Hamon user who first appears as one of Tonpetty's pupils, aiding Jonathan in the fight against Dio. However, in the 1930s during Battle Tendency where he succeeded his mentor, Straizo admitted his desire for youth and envied Dio. This motivated him into betraying Speedwagon and using one of the newly discovered Stone Masks to become a vampire. Straizo makes an attempt on Joseph's life and is defeated on the Brooklyn Bridge, destroying himself with the Hamon he stored in his body prior to becoming a vampire. He is also the adoptive father of Lisa Lisa, who is Joseph's mother.
Bruford (ブラフォード, Burafōdo)
Bruford was formerly, along with Tarkus, a powerful knight from 16th Century Great Britain sent to fight Jonathan Joestar by DIO's orders. After being resurrected, Bruford still possessed a warrior's code of honor as he asked for Dio's blessing to duel Jonathan, once Jonathan made a direct hit on him after literally disarming him, Bruford regained his former humanity from the Ripple slowly destroying his body. Accepting his defeat with grace, noting he lost his hatred, Bruford only expressed only content to be reunited with Mary in the afterlife. After learning of Jonathan's name, Bruford gives the youth his sword, which he renamed Luck and Pluck before he died and completely turned to ash.

Part 2: Battle Tendency[edit]

Set in 1938–39, about 50 years after the events of Phantom Blood.

Joseph Joestar (ジョセフ・ジョースター, Josefu Jōsutā)

Main article: Joseph Joestar

Joseph is the main protagonist of Battle Tendency and the grandson of Jonathan Joestar. Having been brought up by his grandmother Erina and Speedwagon, he developed a coarser and more rebellious attitude than that of his gentlemanly grandfather, but he still has a noble heart. While able to use Hamon like his grandfather, Joseph is not initially as skilled in its use until he trains under Lisa Lisa. He initially uses a pair of Hamon-empowered clackers in battle, but relies more on mind games rather than brute strength in fights, employing his uncanny ability to predict his opponent's actions down to what they say. He returns as a main character in Stardust Crusaders. Now 50 years older, he has acquired the vine-like Stand Hermit Purple (, Hāmitto Pāpuru) which he uses to fight or perform predictions using electronic equipment such as cameras and television sets (though doing so destroys said equipment). He can also use Hermit Purple's vines as wires to channel Hamon. Joseph leads the team of men to confront DIO in Egypt to save his daughter, Holly Kujo. He returns as a supporting character in Diamond Is Unbreakable, where he meets his illegitimate son Josuke Higashikata and is shown to be physically and mentally weaker now due to old age. Araki reveals that even in Stone Ocean, Joseph is still alive.
Rudol von Stroheim (ルドル・フォン・シュトロハイム, Rudoru Fon Shutorohaimu)
Commander of the Nazi forces sent to research Santana in Mexico after the other Pillar Men were discovered in Rome. Stroheim is responsible for not only saving the life of Speedwagon, though only for intel on the Stone Mask for his government, but also helping Joseph defeat Santana by blowing himself up. He returns later as a cyborg to assist in the fight against Kars, upgrading himself with ultraviolet lamps. After providing Joseph with his artificial hand prior to World War II, Stroheim dies in 1943 on the front-line during the Battle of Stalingrad.
Caesar Anthonio Zeppeli (シーザー・アントニオ・ツェペリ, Shīzā Antonio Tseperi)
A suave ladies' man and the grandson of Will A. Zeppeli. He is rather cool and collected, especially compared to Joseph, with whom he is grudgingly paired to fight the Pillar Men. But over time, Joseph starts to grow on him so much that he is able to understand his strange thought patterns and they form an unbeatable duo. He infuses the Hamon into soap bubbles he creates with his specially-made gloves.
Pillar Men (柱の男, Hashira no Otoko)
The Pillar Men are the main antagonists of Battle Tendency, the last four members of an ancient race of humanoids encased in pillars whose extraordinary strength, intelligence, and lifespan made them revered as gods and demons. But Kars, motivated by his race's true potential, wiped out his people when they opposed him for endangering the world with the Stone Mask. Despite their apathy to humans and Kars's conduct, the other Pillar Men are chivalrous warriors who battle Hamon users in fair fights. Each has total control over their body, able to transform it to suit their needs while able to digest non-Hamon users via physical contact, Kars, Esidisi, and Wamuu having honed unique specialties called Modes (, Mōdo) to combat Hamon users.
Santana (サンタナ, Santana)
Santana is discovered in a Mexican pyramid in 1938 by Straizo's Speedwagon Foundation team and then taken by the Nazi forces under Stroheim for live human experiments to see if he can be used to power the German army, even using a Stone Mask vampire on him to see how much more powerful he is. Santana escapes, as he can contort his body to escape through a ventilation shaft, and shows he has mastered human language and the mechanisms of the Germans' weaponry when he manages to withstand their attacks. Joseph and Stroheim manage to stop him by escaping to the outside, as Joseph traps him in a well at high noon, turning him back to stone. His remains are taken to a Speedwagon Foundation laboratory while permanently exposed to ultraviolet lamps to trap him.
Esidisi (エシディシ, Eshidishi)
Esidisi has an erratic temper, quick to sob uncontrollably and just as quick to calm himself down. His Heat Control Mode (怪焔王の, Kaiennō no Mōdo) allows him to make his blood boil to 500 °C (932 °F), which he injects into his foes to burn them alive by extending his needle-like blood vessels out of his own body. Esidisi's search for the Super Aja leads him to Venice, where he faces Joseph after murdering Loggins. Claiming to have intimate knowledge of The Art of War as he was in China during the lifetime of Sun Tzu, Esidisi matches Joseph's own quick wits in a battle of deception. But Joseph takes advantage of Esidisi's lack of knowledge of sleight of hand to defeat him with a Hamon attack via a cut and restore rope trick, destroying Esidisi's body. Esidisi survives, but is reduced to a disembodied nervous system, possessing the body of Suzi Q to get her to mail the Super Aja to Kars and then plans to destroy her from the inside with her heated blood killing the Hamon users. However, Joseph and Caesar's contrasting Hamon abilities force Esidisi out of Suzi Q's body, which results in the weakened Pillar Man's permanent death when exposed to the sunlight.
Wamuu (ワムウ, Wamū)
Wamuu is Esidisi and Kars' loyal servant, who is a strong and honorable warrior, but reflexively attacks anyone who steps on his own shadow. His Wind Mode (風の, Kaze no Mōdo) allows him to control the air in his lungs, turning it into a powerful wind at his disposal, from using it like a razor sharp blade to rendering him invisible. He spares Joseph's life after the young man wounds him, allowing him a month's reprieve to master Hamon while placing a poison ring in the human's heart as added incentive while revealing the antidote in his lip piercing. His next fight is against Caesar, who manages to hold his own, but cannot defeat Wamuu's Wind Mode. He fatally wounds Caesar, allowing the dying man to obtain the antidote out of respect for the human's valiant effort. Wamuu later faces off against Joseph in a deadly chariot race, blinding himself to regain a psychological advantage over his opponent, before he is defeated by Joseph's wits and Hamon mastery. As Wamuu's disembodied head lays dying, Joseph eases the Pillar Man's passing by giving him drops of his own blood. Wamuu returns the favor by killing off a horde of vampires that attempts to kill Joseph in revenge, asking Joseph to take the antidote to give him peace of mind while expressing gratitude for facing such a worthy opponent.
Kars (カーズ, Kāzu)
Kars is the leader of the Pillar Men and the creator of the Stone Masks. He is intelligent and ruthless, and single minded in his dedication to become the Ultimate Being (, Arutimitto Shiingu). This led to Kars wiping out his own people when they deemed his intention as sheer madness. Later facing Hamon users in his quest for a Super Aja stone to perfect the mask's use for his kind, Kars developed a Light Mode (光の, Hikari no Mōdo), which allows him to produce saw-bladed appendages from his body which produce a radiant glow. Unlike his subordinates, Kars has no honor whatsoever and intends to fulfill his goals by any means. Kars finally succeeds in getting the stone by deceiving Lisa Lisa during their match with a vampire decoy and then tricking the Nazis into exposing him to ultraviolet rays while wearing the Aja-embedded stone mask. Once evolved, now immune to sunlight and able to tap into his own genetic structure, Kars can produce animal-like extensions of himself, undergo reactive evolutionary mutations, and utilize Hamon. In the end, Kars is defeated as a result of his own hubris, using a Hamon attack on Joseph, who uses the Super Aja to intercept it in a volcano. The resulting eruption blasts Kars into the vacuum of space, causing his immortal body to freeze solid. Because he is unable to die, he drifts through space for the remainder of time, eventually ceasing thought.
Lisa Lisa (リサリサ, Risa Risa)
A mysterious female Hamon master and Caesar's Hamon teacher who lives in Venice, Lisa Lisa is one of the few remaining Hamon users and keeper of the Super Aja, a perfectly cut Red Stone of Aja which she guards from the Pillar Men. She is revealed to be Joseph's mother Elizabeth (エリザベス, Erizabesu), who Erina saved as an infant on the night of Jonathan's death and entrusted to Straizo. Elizabeth married Erina's son George Joestar II and was forced to go on the run after killing her husband's murderer, one of Dio's surviving vampires who infiltrated the Royal Air Force. Lisa Lisa fights with Hamon by conducting it through her specially made scarf. Because of her Hamon abilities, she appears to be in her mid 20s despite actually being in her 50s.
Suzi Q (スージーQ, Sūjī Kyū)
Lisa Lisa's personal assistant who is ditzy and forgetful but loyal to her cause. She develops a crush on Joseph after seeing his face without a special Hamon training mask on for the first time. She is possessed by a disembodied Esidisi and is forced to send the Super Aja to the Pillar Man's allies and then attack the others before Caesar and Joseph manage to use Hamon to force the Pillar Man out of her body without endangering her life. She nurses Joseph back to health after his battle with Kars, and then becomes his wife in the end of Battle Tendency, but forgets to let everyone else know that Joseph survived his battle with Kars. She later gives birth to their daughter Holly. Suzi Q makes a return appearance in Stardust Crusaders to watch over her daughter while Joseph and Jotaro are en route to Cairo to destroy DIO.

Part 3: Stardust Crusaders[edit]

Set from 1988 to 1989, the series follows Jotaro Kujo and his comrades who travel to Egypt from Japan in search of the evil and immortal vampire Dio Brando, now referred to as DIO.

Jotaro Kujo (空条 承太郎, Kūjō Jōtarō)

Main article: Jotaro Kujo

The main protagonist of Stardust Crusaders and the grandson of Joseph Joestar through Holly. He is depicted as a rough delinquent with a kind heart as he journeys to Egypt with his grandfather and allies to defeat DIO and save his mother's life. Jotaro tends to have an introverted mindset, rarely showing emotion. However, he uses this to his advantage to keep calm and make a plan in a dire situation. His Stand is Star Platinum (, Sutā Purachina) whose power is incredible strength, speed, and precision. Star Platinum also has enhanced eyesight, allowing Jotaro to see things that can normally not be seen with the human eye. Later on, Star Platinum gains the ability Star Platinum: The World (スタープラチナ ザ・ワールド, Sutā Purachina Za Wārudo), allowing Star Platinum to stop time. He returns in Diamond Is Unbreakable to meet his biological uncle Josuke while investigating enemy stands in the town of Morioh. Since DIO's defeat, he has become a famed marine biologist. He makes a minor appearance in Golden Wind when he sends Koichi Hirose to Italy to spy on DIO's son, Giorno Giovanna. He returns in Stone Ocean to aid his daughter, Jolyne Cujoh, against the forces of Enrico Pucci, but falls unconscious after both his Stand and memory discs were stolen by Pucci's Stand, Whitesnake. Pucci uses Jotaro's memories to aid in his plan to transform Whitesnake into C-Moon, and Jolyne spends most of the Part trying to retrieve Jotaro's discs. After the discs are returned to him, he awakens and assists Jolyne in the final battle with Pucci. He nearly kills Pucci, but is killed instead after C-Moon evolves into Made in Heaven. However, Jotaro appears to have been revived after Pucci is killed and the universe resets once more, as Pucci's death also erases his existence. While he is not seen in the ending of Part 6, it is mentioned that his daughter and her allies are driving off to meet him.
Mohammed Avdol (モハメド・アヴドゥル, Mohamedo Avuduru, محمد عبد) Mohammed Abdul
An Egyptian ally of Joseph and Jotaro Kujo from Cairo, a fortune teller who narrowly escaped from DIO and helped Joseph understand Stands. His Stand is Magician's Red (, Majishanzu Reddo), which allows him to manipulate fire, usually in the shape of the ankh. Magician's Red's signature move is Crossfire Hurricane (クロスファイヤーハリケーン, Kurosufaiyā Harikēn), which sends out several fiery ankhs at the target. While in India, Avdol is seemingly killed by the combined efforts of Hol Horse and J. Geil, but is later revealed to have survived and rejoins the group at the Red Sea. During the group's infiltration of DIO's mansion, Avdol is vaporized after he sacrifices himself to save Polnareff and Iggy from Vanilla Ice.
Noriaki Kakyoin (花京院 典明, Kakyōin Noriaki)
Originally sent by DIO to kill Jotaro under mind control, his life is instead saved by Jotaro, whereupon Kakyoin pledges to work with him to kill DIO. His Stand is Hierophant Green (, Haierofanto Gurīn), which he can shrink down to enter people and control them from the inside, produce strange tendrils that can thrash people, or perform a long-ranged attack using blasts of green energy known as Emerald Splash. Hierophant Green was originally known as Hierophant Emerald (ハイエロファントエメラルド, Haierofanto Emerarudo). He is later killed by DIO in Egypt and uses his final moments to inform the group about The World's ability. He had no friends for all his life, only having Hierophant Green but had best friends for a whole of 50 days.
Jean Pierre Polnareff (ジャン・ピエール・ポルナレフ, Jan Piēru Porunarefu)
A French traveler initially under DIO's control, Polnareff attacks Jotaro's group during their stay in Hong Kong before being defeated by Avdol. After reforming, he joins them on the hunt for DIO in order to find his sister's murderer, J. Geil. Polnareff is chivalrous and honorable, but is also goofy and naive, and tends to get into trouble frequently. His Stand is Silver Chariot (, Shirubā Chariottsu), an armored knight wielding a rapier that can boost its blinding speed further by casting off its armor while producing a series of afterimages, while sacrificing defense. Polnareff later makes an appearance during the events of Golden Wind, having been crippled by Diavolo who stole the Arrows from him. Polnareff kept one arrow he intended to give to Giorno's gang, but was forced to use it on himself with his dying breath to enhance his Stand into Chariot Requiem (チャリオッツ・レクイエム, Chariottsu Rekuiemu) as a final gambit to protect the arrow. Chariot Requiem, acting on its master's last command, can manipulate the souls of others in various ways like causing souls swap bodies with someone nearby. Further exposure to Chariot Requiem causes living bodies and souls to mutate. Chariot Requiem acts as a shadow to people's souls, and when they look at it, its shadow always falls in the opposite direction. It creates a sun-like light source behind them but if that light source is destroyed Chariot Requiem is destroyed as well. Chariot Requiem's abilities ends up saving Polnareff as they transfer his soul into Coco Jumbo, a turtle that was used by Giorno's gang. After Chariot Requiem is destroyed, Polnareff still manages to survive inside the turtle's body and now accompanies Passione's new leader, Giorno. It is unknown if ever Polnareff will learn of Giorno's connections with both the Joestars and Brandos.
Iggy (イギー, Igī)
A stray Boston Terrier who thwarted the New York animal control officers for years until Avdol managed to capture the dog for the Speedwagon Foundation. He is recruited to the group when they arrive in Egypt. To keep him calm, the Speedwagon Foundation and the Joestar Group offer him coffee-flavored chewing gum as a treat for his compliance. His Stand The Fool (, Za Fūru) is one of few that possess a physical form, a biomechanical being with two wheels instead of hindlegs that can manipulate sand and dirt, forming wings to allow Iggy to glide away from danger. The Fool can also use sand to shape-shift into different objects, and even people. Iggy is thought to be a self-serving coward as he avoids fighting N'Doul and many other Stand users as the group heads to Cairo, but he shows his intelligence during his fight with Pet Shop and his bravery and loyalty when he saves Polnareff from Vanilla Ice at the cost of his life.
Hol Horse (ホル・ホース, Horu Hōsu)
An arrogant cowboy and the wielder of the Emperor (, Enperā) Stand, which takes the form of a revolver. Upon being fired, the Emperor can control the bullet's flight path, allowing it to turn in midair. He prefers to operate with a partner, as his Stand is fairly weak and not effective without backup. Hol Horse is originally hesitant on working for DIO, and even attempts to shoot him behind his back, but eventually accepts DIO as a master after he experiences the power of DIO's Stand first hand. While originally seen working with J. Geil, he later becomes partners with Boingo.
Enya the Hag (Enya Geil) (エンヤ婆(エンヤ・ガイル), En'ya-baa (En'ya Gairu))
An elderly woman with two right hands who is Dio's apparent confidant in Part 3, she is revealed in Part 4 to have played a role in awakening Dio and the Joestar line's ability to use Stands through ancient weapon sets known the Bow and Arrow. She provided Yoshihiro Kira with one Bow and Arrow set years before the events of Part 4, later revealed in Part 5 to have acquired the Arrows from Diavolo. Her Stand Justice (, Jasutisu), a massive mist with a skull and hands, allows her to manipulate anything with an open wound like a puppet. After the death of her son J. Geil, one of Dio's assassins who made an enemy out of Polnareff, Enya decides to personally attack the Joestar group before being captured and later killed by her allies to keep the nature of Dio's Stand a secret.

N'Doul was a blind loyal assassin for DIO, he is the first of the Egypt 9 Glory Gods the Joestar Group encounters upon entering Egypt, attacking them in the middle of the Sahara in the second half of the Stardust Crusaders. Your Stand called Geb (ゲブ神, Gebu-shin), he is introduced shortly after Iggy joins the Joestar group, when he kills the two pilots of the helicopter that Iggy came in. He attacks the Joestar group soon after, managing to injure Kakyoin's eyes and keep him from assisting the group for a period of time. After Avdol found out that N'Doul could only locate the group through the sounds they made, Jotaro forced Iggy to cooperate with them, as he was the only one capable of detecting N'Doul's attacks.

Your Stand is called Cream (クリーム, Kurīmu).

Part 4: Diamond Is Unbreakable[edit]

Set in 1999, 10 years after the events of Stardust Crusaders, in the fictitious Japanese city of Morioh.

Josuke Higashikata (東方 仗助, Higashikata Jōsuke)
The main protagonist of Diamond Is Unbreakable, Josuke is a freshman in Morioh who is the illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar. When Josuke was four years old, he awakened a Stand due to DIO's influence of the Joestars in the events of Stardust Crusaders. But because of his gentle nature, his Stand worked against him, causing him to become fatally ill, similar to Holly's illness in Stardust Crusaders. While en route to the hospital, his mother gets her car stuck in the snow, but an unknown delinquent with a pompadour helps his mother release the car from the snow and drive Josuke to safety. Overwhelmed by the selflessness and kindness of the unknown delinquent, Josuke wears his hair in a similar pompadour to honor him, and erupts into a violent rage if anyone insults his hair, as he associates his hair with the delinquent who saved him. His Stand is Crazy Diamond (クレイジー・ダイヤモンド, Kureijī Daiyamondo),[a] a close range Stand which has the ability to restore objects to their original form, including healing other people's injuries and also any inanimate object such as food and drink, for example it can use its ability to revert lemonade back to water, sugar and lemons. However, Crazy Diamond cannot be used to revive the dead, nor can it be used to heal Josuke himself.
Yoshikage Kira (吉良 吉影, Kira Yoshikage)
The main antagonist of Diamond Is Unbreakable, Kira is a handsome office worker who holds a strong desire to live a simple life, but has a murderous obsession with female hands, stemming from an erotic experience he had with the Mona Lisa as a child. He has been murdering women in Morioh for over 15 years, with Reimi Sugimoto as the first of his victims. Once killing his victim, Kira will keep their severed hand as a "girlfriend", carrying it around with him and using it for various fetishtic purposes before discarding it when it begins to decay. Kira later manifests his Stand Killer Queen (キラークイーン, Kirā Kuīn)[b] with the Arrow that his father Yoshihiro acquired from Enya, the Stand possessing the ability to disintegrate Kira's victims to make it appear they went missing. The Stand also possesses a secondary ability called Sheer Heart Attack, an indestructible tank-like bomb linked to Kira's left hand that relentlessly locks on to heat signatures.
Kira is eventually exposed by Josuke's group acting on Reimi's behalf and murders a man named Kosaku Kawajiri (川尻 浩作) while fleeing his pursuers, forcing Aya Tsuji into using her Stand and give him Kosaku's face and fingerprints before killing her off. Kira attempts concealing himself in the Kawajiri household while fighting his murderous urges, with Kawajiri's son Hayato eventually realizing the truth. Kira acquired a new ability when pierced by the Arrow called Bites The Dust (, Baitsa Dasuto) which he implants in Hayato, placing the boy on a time-loop where anyone who learns of Kira's identity from the boy is killed with their death fixed. But Hayato exploits the time loop to trick Kira into exposing himself and cancel Bites the Dust to defend himself against Josuke, eventually killed off when run over by a reversing ambulance and becoming a wandering spirit after being dragged off by the spectral hands of Ghost Alley. He makes a return appearance in the side-story Dead Man's Questions as a wandering sprit with no knowledge of who he really is.
Koichi Hirose (広瀬 康一, Hirose Kōichi)
A classmate of Josuke's who meets him when Jotaro is searching for Josuke, resulting in the two becoming quick friends. Koichi is a young freshman in high school, and despite his age, he is very short. Throughout the series, he forms a student-teacher relationship with Jotaro. When Koichi is stabbed by the Arrow from Keicho Nijimura, the Arrow did not choose him, which fatally wounded him. However, Josuke was able to heal Koichi before the Arrow killed him, awakening his Stand Echoes (エコーズ, Ekōzu),[c] which has three distinct forms, or ACTs, that he gains as he develops as a character. However, Koichi can only call upon one at any given time. Echoes ACT1 can replicate sound effects, such as a train alarm; he can attach these sound effects as written Kana to anything, and if he attaches them to an opponent, he can overwhelm them with sound. Echoes ACT2 also writes out sound effects in Kana, but rather than replicating the noise, it replicates the phenomenon that would create that sound effect (e.g. attaching the word "whoosh" causes a gust of wind to blow by, or "sizzle" will cause something to glow with heat). ACT1 & ACT2 are also long range, and Koichi can use either of them as a scout to find a specific target. Echoes ACT3 loses the former abilities and its long range, but gains the ability "3 Freeze," which causes a target to become extremely heavy to the point that it is incapable of moving. ACT3 also shows its own sentience separate of Koichi, which is rare in Stands. It talks in a monotone voice, and frequently says vulgar phrases in English.
Okuyasu Nijimura (虹村 億泰, Nijimura Okuyasu)
The youngest of the two Nijimura brothers who are responsible for creating the majority of Stand users in Morioh via the Bow and Arrow. Okuyasu is overly dependent on his elder brother Keicho to make hard decisions. After his brother dies, he seeks revenge against the user of the Stand Red Hot Chili Pepper, Akira Otoishi, and becomes friends with Josuke and Koichi. Okuyasu's father is a bizarre creature that can regenerate rapidly, making him unable to die. He was mutated by a flesh bud made from DIO's cells after the latter's death at the hands of Jotaro. At first, Okuyasu and Keicho plotted to kill their father to relieve him of his suffering, creating Stand users via the Bow and Arrow for this very purpose. However, after he learned that his father still had sentience, he gave up on the plan. His Stand is The Hand (ザ・ハンド, Za Hando), which erases whatever space it swipes with its right hand, drawing objects closer to Okuyasu or drawing Okuyasu himself closer to an object. Should he erase the middle of an object, the two remaining halves will snap together (demonstrated when he erases the middle of a sign, causing it to say something different with the middle portion gone). While this ability is quite useful and could be devastating in the right hands, Okuyasu himself is rather unintelligent, rarely using it to its full potential.
Rohan Kishibe (岸辺 露伴, Kishibe Rohan)
An abrasive but well meaning mangaka who writes the manga Pink Dark Boy for Weekly Shōnen Jump. He eventually befriends Koichi and the two comes across Reimi Sugimoto (杉本 鈴美, Sugimoto Reimi), a ghost who warns the two about a serial murderer in Morioh. It is revealed later that 15 years prior to the events of Diamond is Unbreakable, Reimi was Rohan's babysitter. On the night Reimi was murdered by Yoshikage Kira, she sneaks the four year old Rohan out the window to save his life. This inspires him to help Jotaro and the others find and stop Yoshikage Kira. His Stand is Heaven's Door (ヘブンズ・ドアー, Hebunzu Doā), which allows him to peel a person's skin open like a book and read their memories and abilities. He can also write commands in the pages which the recipient must follow. Heaven's Door originally appears as a manuscript that one must consciously look at to be placed under effect. Later on, it gains a physical form resembling the unnamed protagonist of Pink Dark Boy. Rohan is subject of multiple one-shot spinoffs such as Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan and Rohan at the Louvre.

Part 5: Golden Wind[edit]

Set in 2001 Italy, two years after the events of Diamond is Unbreakable.

Giorno Giovanna (ジョルノ・ジョバァーナ, Joruno Jobāna)
The main protagonist of Golden Wind, born Haruno Shiobana (汐華 初流乃), Giorno is the illegitimate son of Dio Brando. However, because DIO's head was attached to the decapitated body of Jonathan Joestar at the time of Giorno's conception, he is technically a Joestar, Jonathan's biological son, and bears the Joestar birthmark as proof of his Joestar lineage. Bearing a similarity to both men in regard to personality (Jonathan's sense of morality and Dio's indifference to his enemies), he is initially observed by Jotaro and Koichi in case he became a threat like DIO. Giorno's dream of becoming a "Gang-Star" in the Passione mob family after rescuing a wounded mafia member however has changed his motivation and prevents him from becoming as evil as Dio was. As a combination of Dio and Jonathan, he is kind, caring, and calm, a trait traced from Jonathan; but also confident, brutal, and a cunning strategist, a trait inherited from Dio. He aspires to overthrow Passione's boss, to end the drug trade, and turn the gang into an organization which helps the people of Italy, much akin to Robin Hood.
His Stand is named Gold Experience (ゴールド・エクスペリエンス, Gōrudo Ekusuperiensu),[d] which has the ability to imbue things with life, which is mostly used to turn inorganic objects into living organisms. Later on, Giorno learns how to create body parts with Gold Experience, giving him the ability to heal himself and others (albeit causing significant pain in the process). Giorno can also use Gold Experience to sense the lifeforce of others. When the Requiem Arrow chooses Giorno, his Stand becomes Gold Experience Requiem (ゴールド・エクスペリエンス・レクイエム, Gōrudo Ekusuperiensu Rekuiemu),[e] which greatly evolves its life-giving properties and also has the ability to return any kind of process back to a state of "zero", nullifying any desired action. Its ability to nullify things can even affect death, and the act of returning a person's death to "zero" places said person into an infinite loop of endless deaths (in which the target doesn't actually die, but is put in a state leading to death over and over again) of greatly varying causes.
Bruno Bucciarati (ブローノ・ブチャラティ, Burōno Bucharati)
Initially a caporegime in the Passione mafia family, Bucciarati teams up with Giorno and leads a group of rogue gang members against their boss. Bucciarati grew up in a fishing village and after his parents divorced, he chose to live with his father. When he was twelve years old, his father was shot by drug dealers who had hired his boat and when they tried to kill him in the hospital, Bruno fatally stabbed them. He entered the world of the Passione mob for protection, but years later was horrified to discover that Passione was responsible for what happened to his father. Bucciarati's Stand is Sticky Fingers (スティッキィ・フィンガーズ, Sutikkī Fingāzu),[f] which has the ability to place a fully functional zipper on any object just by touching it. For example, Sticky Fingers can place a zipper on a wall, unzip it, and then pass through the resulting opening. The zipper can also be used to take things or people apart, or even mismatch various objects, and he can use this ability on himself if necessary. Bucciarati's hatred of drugs aspires him to help Giorno's dream of overthrowing the boss. During their first confrontation with Diavolo, Bucciarati is killed, but Giorno's Gold Experience manages to keep Bucciarati alive, albeit in a corpse-like state, until he fully passes on in the final battle with Diavolo after giving Giorno the arrow he needed to defeat the boss.
Leone Abbacchio (レオーネ・アバッキオ, Reōne Abakkio)
A member of Bucciarati's gang, Abbacchio is a former policeman who aspired to protect people, but became disillusioned upon realizing that the ungrateful public he swore to protect disrespected the police, and that richer criminals bribed their way out of punishment using the general corruption present in law enforcement. He soon learnt to work with the contradictions, and eventually accepted a bribe from a criminal. Sometime later a break-in was reported at an old man's house committed by the same man who'd paid him said bribe. He hesitated to shoot the man, and as a result his partner leapt in front of a bullet fired at him by the thief, killing him. Labelled a dirty cop, he lost his job, and fell into a drunken depression, and lost hope of life until Bucciarati recruited him to the gang. His Stand Moody Blues (ムーディー・ブルース, Mūdī Burūsu)[g] can repeat the past of anything or any person like a 3-D video recording, transforming into that person. While doing so, Moody Blues becomes an easy target for enemies to attack since it cannot defend itself when it is "rebroadcasting". Once it is out of "rebroadcasting" mode, it can attack again. Abbacchio can also use Moody Blues' transformations to disguise his Stand as a person. When Giorno joins the gang, Abbacchio trusts him the least out of the group and frequently confronts him on his decisions. Abbacchio is later killed by Diavolo after the boss disguised himself as a young soccer player while Abbacchio was using his Stand to recreate the boss's face. In the afterlife, he is reunited with his deceased partner, who commends him for his commitment towards helping his comrades.
Guido Mista (グイード・ミスタ, Guīdo Misuta)
Another member of Bucciarati's gang. He was sentenced to prison for killing gang members that had attacked him after he'd come to the aid of a woman being assaulted, with the court not believing the truth that Mista had been acting in self defense, since he hadn't been injured. Somehow through the will of destiny, all of the bullets fired at him had missed, and Mista fired back four shots with pin-point accuracy whilst under fire. Bucciarati arranged for the charges to be dropped, and recruited Mista to his gang. Mista uses a revolver as his weapon of choice in conjunction with his stand, Sex Pistols (セックス・ピストルズ, Sekkusu Pisutoruzu).[h] Sex Pistols is represented by six bullet-shaped humanoids, numbered from #1 through #7 with no #4. Mista controls them by telling them to send the bullet ricocheting in a certain direction. Each of them have distinct personalities; they love to eat, and if not fed, will not work. Sex Pistols has no #4, due to the number 4 reminding Mista of a cat who scratched a little kid's eye out when said little kid chose it from a group of four cats. Because of this, Mista is tetraphobic, and associates the number 4 with bad luck or danger much like the Japanese and other Eastern cultures, despite being Italian.
Narancia Ghirga (ナランチャ・ギルガ, Narancha Giruga)
A member of Bucciarati's gang. He was abandoned by his father after his mother died from an eye disease, as a result Narancia became a run-away street-living delinquent. He was savagely beaten by the police, after another delinquent he looked up to framed him for a burglary. He developed a persistent eye injury, having spent a year in a junior offender detention center. At age 15, filthy, ill and homeless, he was picked up by Fugo and taken to meet Bucciarati who funded his return to health. Narancia was so overwhelmed with Bucciarati's kindness that he vowed to follow him forever. After joining the gang, he befriends Fugo and looks up to him as a role-model and mentor. His Stand Aerosmith (エアロスミス, Earosumisu)[i] is a toy-like tiny airplane, equipped with machine guns and bombs to attack enemies. It detects expelled carbon dioxide on a radar-like display, but Narancia cannot distinguish between his targets and other sources of carbon dioxide such as innocent bystanders or open flames. Narancia is eventually killed by Diavolo while he was in Giorno's body as a result of Silver Chariot Requiem. Though Giorno is able to heal his body of the punctured wounds Diavolo inflicted, Narancia's soul was already gone by the time his body healed.
Pannacotta Fugo (パンナコッタ・フーゴ, Pannakotta Fūgo)
He was the first person to join Bucciarati's team, and in the anime was molested by his college professor when he was 13 years old, which resulted in him savagely beating his abuser, resulting in him being expelled and disowned by his family, who'd never cared much for his well-being at all. Fugo tends to have an erratic temper, erupting into a violent rage before quickly calming himself down. His Stand is Purple Haze (パープル・ヘイズ, Pāpuru Heizu),[j] a humanoid with a violet-and-white diamond pattern skin and a glass-like gladiator's helmet, it also has a cape. Its main form of attack comes from the three globes on the back of its hands, each of which contains a powerful "Delay virus". The globes will break when they strike something, or if its strike is not stopped properly (i.e. if the globe detaches from the stopped fist). Once this happens, the virus will spread and rapidly devour organic matter—a human body will be annihilated in about 30 seconds. However, the virus is destroyed by sunlight. Purple Haze is difficult for Fugo to control in even the best of situations, since it represents everything he hates about himself, which explains its manic behavior surrounding the idea of cleanliness, and its inability to distinguish friend from foe, due to sharing his hair-trigger temper. He is the only member of Bucciarati's team who refuses to join him when Bucciarati decides to turn on the boss. He later stars in the light novel Purple Haze Feedback, which takes place after the events of Part 5. In the events of Purple Haze Feedback, he meets Giorno again and undergoes a crusade against Passione's remaining drug team as a form of atonement for his departure from Bucciarati's team.
Trish Una (トリッシュ・ウナ, Torisshu Una)
Trish is the daughter of the boss, although she'd never met him, a result of her parents union when he was living under the pseudonym "Solido Naso." She is protected by Bruno's team from her father's enemies, until it is revealed he'd only had her protected so that he could eliminate the threat she posed to him due to her very existence. She eventually awakens her own Stand Spice Girl (スパイス・ガール, Supaisu Gāru)[k] which has the ability to soften any material giving it a similar sensation to rubber.

Coco Jumbo

Coco Jumbo is a tortoise that accompanies the heroes. Its Stand, Mr. President, manifests as an interdimensional hotel room inside its shell.
Diavolo (ディアボロ, Diaboro)
The main antagonist of Golden Wind and dominant personality of Vinegar Doppio (ヴィネガー・ドッピオ, Vinegā Doppio), speculated to have come about as a result of dissociative identity disorder. When he takes control of Doppio it is depicted in a similar manner to possession. The two are distinctive enough from each other that the two identities have separate souls. He is the father of Trish Una and the boss of Passione. He is obsessed with erasing any trace of his past to preserve the secret of his identity, and his appearance. He orders Bucciarati's team to protect his daughter and bring her to him so that he can murder her; he believes their link as genetic relatives could be used to track him, putting his anonymity in jeopardy. He is defeated by Giorno at the end of Part 5, being sent into an infinite loop of being killed thanks to the power of Golden Experience Requiem.
His Stand is King Crimson (キング・クリムゾン, Kingu Kurimuzon),[l] which has the ability to erase the time in which an action will take place, altering what happened in between two intangible points, the effect of which is a sudden time-skip covering up to ten seconds. Time flows normally for Diavolo in skipped time and he alone may interact with objects in erased time (visually represented as Diavolo and the object superimposed on each other, in a fashion akin to Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2). For example, this stops Risotto Nero from killing Diavolo when he takes control of Aerosmith in a last ditch-effort to take Diavolo with him, since he uses the time skip to move out of the way of the hail of bullets. King Crimson has a secondary ability called Epitaph (エピタフ, Epitafu)[m] that exists as a second face on King Crimson's forehead and can be used to predict 10 seconds into the future. This method allows him to see within the erased time; any object or individual other than Diavolo must behave according to the prediction.
Hitman Team / Execution Squad (La Squadra Esecuzioni) (暗殺チーム, Ansatsu Chīmu)
An execution squad of Stand users within the Passione group under the leadership of Risotto Nero, consisting of Formaggio, Illuso, Prosciutto, Pesci, Melone, Ghiaccio, Sorbet and Gelato. Sorbet and Gelato planned to overthrow the boss, but the boss found out and had them brutally executed. The rest of the team serve as the main antagonists of the part's first half, planning to overthrow the Boss themselves via receiving his whereabouts from Trish.

Part 6: Stone Ocean[edit]

Set in 2011-12 Florida, USA ten years after the events of Golden Wind.

Jolyne Cujoh (空条 徐倫, Kūjō Jorīn)
The main protagonist of Stone Ocean, Jolyne Cujoh is the daughter of Jotaro Kujo and an unknown American woman. Framed for a DUI murder, she is sent to Green Dolphin Street Prison, where she investigates and battles Dio's most trusted disciple, Father Enrico Pucci. Initially bitter against Jotaro for being absent during her childhood, it becomes her priority to recover his memories and Stand after they are stolen. Her Stand is Stone Free (ストーン・フリー, Sutōn Furī),[n] which allows her to turn her body into elastic but relatively fragile thread. However, when the thread is tightly coiled together, she can create a much more durable and powerful puncher.
Enrico Pucci (エンリコ・プッチ, Enriko Putchi)
Enrico Pucci is the main antagonist of Stone Ocean and a loyal follower of DIO, using his Stand Whitesnake (ホワイトスネイク, Howaitosuneiku)[o] to steal people's spirits and memories, even Stands, in the form of compact disks that can be freely inserted into other people and objects. Enrico later evolves his Stand into the gravity manipulating C-Moon (, Shī Mūn)[p] and into Made in Heaven (メイド・イン・ヘブン, Meido in Hebun),[q] which can accelerate time to such a degree that the universe resets itself, all to put the world into an infinite loop of events where everyone knows their destiny and where the Joestar bloodline was never created, which he believes to be Heaven. However, Pucci is killed before his new universe can be made permanent, and in the resulting universe, the Joestar bloodline is intact (including the members he'd killed) while Pucci himself has never existed. Made in Heaven was previously named "Stairway to Heaven" (, Suteawei Tu Hebun) in the serialization, but was later changed in the tankōbon volumes.
Ermes Costello (エルメェス・コステロ, Erumēsu Kosutero)
Ermes Costello is Jolyne's friend in prison. When she was 17, her older sister allowed herself to be spotted by a homicidal car salesmen named Sports Maxx, subsequently saving Ermes from his wrath but ending her own life in the process. Enraged, Ermes deliberately had herself arrested in an effort to track Sports Maxx down. Her Stand, Kiss (キッス, Kissu),[r] is a humanoid-like Stand covered in stickers depicting a woman's lips. Releasing the stickers will duplicate an item perfectly for as long as the sticker is on it. When the sticker falls off, the original item and the duplicate will violently smash into each other and fuse back together, leaving the original object damaged.
Weather Report (ウェザー・リポート, Wezā Ripōto)
Weather Report is an amnesiac prisoner who seeks his memory back after Father Enrico Pucci took it and allies himself with Jolyne. Weather was originally born as "Domenico Pucci" (ドメニコ・プッチ, Domeniko Putchi) to the wealthy Pucci family, being the younger twin brother of Enrico Pucci. He was stolen from the clinic nursery by a woman whose own baby had died the same day, soon after birth. He lived as Wes Bluemarine (ウェス・ブルーマリン, Wesu Burūmarin) until Pucci found out that they were brothers from the woman who kidnapped him at a confessional. Pucci hired detectives to separate Wes from their sister, Perla, who he had been dating. Unbeknownst to Pucci, the detectives he hired were part of the KKK, and seeing Wes' stepfather as a black man, assumed he was of mixed race. They lynched him and seemingly killed him, prompting Perla to commit suicide. Wes survived and killed the racist detectives with his newly-awakened Stand, Weather Report. Pucci used his own Stand to remove Wes's memories. With no memory of his past or name, Wes adopted the name of his Stand, and eventually ended up in Green Dolphin Street Prison. He regained his memories later in the part thanks to Donatello Versace's Stand, Underworld. This unlocks both his true, more cocky and sinister personality, as well as his Stand's true potential - an ability named Heavy Weather (ヘビー・ウェザー, Hebī Wezā) that creates rainbows which transform any who look at them into snails. He is consumed by rage against Pucci, suicidally attempting to kill him. However, he was killed soon after before he could end Pucci. Weather's Stand of the same name is used by Emporio to kill Pucci at the end of Part 6.
Narciso Anasui (ナルシソ・アナスイ, Narushiso Anasui)
Anasui is an inmate in Green Dolphin Street Prison that was sent to prison for murdering his girlfriend, who was having an affair with another man. He falls in love with Jolyne to an obsessive degree, believing that he would be able to "purify" himself both by courting and marrying her, and helping her defeat Pucci. He is killed by Pucci and Made in Heaven at the end of Part 6. Anasui wields the Stand Diver Down (ダイバー・ダウン, Daibā Daun),[s], which allows him to enter objects and restructure their insides.
Foo Fighters (フー・ファイターズ, Fū Faitāzu)
Foo Fighters, commonly referred to as F.F., is a fusion of Stand and Stand User. She is a colony of plankton that is organized, maintained by, and essentially equivalent to the Stand, Foo Fighters. She was at first created to serve Enrico Pucci, guarding Jotaro's Stand Disc, but upon being defeated by Jolyne, she allies herself out of gratitude, possessing the body of the prisoner Atro (エートロ, Ētoro). F.F sacrifices herself for Anasui, preferring death with her memories over being remade as a new being with no sentience.
Donatello Versus (ドナテロ・ヴェルサス, Donatero Verusasu)
Donatello is one of DIO's illegitimate sons, and the half-brother of Ungalo, Rikiel, and Giorno Giovanna, when he fatefully meets Enrico Pucci. After failed to eliminate Ermes Costello and Jolyne, Versus betrayed Pucci by stealing Weather Report's Memory Disc using his Stand, Underworld, an angered Pucci demanded Versus to give the disc back to him, panicked of Weather regaining his memories. Versus' final moments in the manga would come when Jolyne and Anasui attack Pucci while Whitesnake activated its illusory powers, however, Anasui realizes that he attacked Versus instead of Pucci, killing him. Donatello uses the Stand Under World (アンダー・ワールド, Andā Wārudo).

Part 7: Steel Ball Run[edit]

Set in a rebooted-universe in post-Civil WarAmerica.

Johnny Joestar (ジョニィ・ジョースター, Jonī Jōsutā)
Johnny Joestar is the main protagonist of Steel Ball Run. Born in Kentucky and spending some time in the United Kingdom, Johnny was a horse racing prodigy until an altercation left him paralyzed from the waist down. He participates in the Steel Ball Run in order to follow Gyro Zeppeli and learn how to use the Spin, as it is the only thing that has made him able to stand on his own again. Johnny races on the horse Slow Dancer (スロー・ダンサー, Surō Dansā) and eventually develops the Stand Tusk (タスク, Tasuku), at first allowing him to shoot his fingernails at people, but it soon evolves through a series of Acts. With Act 2 he imparts his fingernails with the Spin, allowing him to move the holes his fingernails produce. Act 3 allows Johnny to teleport parts of himself through the holes after he shoots himself with an Act 2 fingernail. The final form of Act 4 is the most powerful offensive Stand in the part, allowing Johnny to trap whoever his nail hits in a constant loop during which they cannot leave where they were located at the time of the attack until the Spin is stopped by Johnny, or else they will eventually be killed by the Super Spin literally unraveling their DNA; Act 4's physical form is also so strong that it can rend reality itself, ripping apart the barriers between dimensions to travel to alternate timelines or peeling the layers of his own dimension. In Jojolion, Johnny is revealed to have married a Japanese woman named Rina Higashikata with both the Higashikata Family and his universe's version of Joseph "Fumi" Joestar and his grandson Yoshikage Kira as his descendants.
Lucy Steel (ルーシー・スティール, Rūshī Sutīru)
Lucy Steel is a fourteen-year-old girl who tries to help Johnny and Gyro, and is the wife of the Steel Ball Run promoter Stephen Steel. She eventually obtains the Stand Ticket to Ride (涙の乗車券チケット・ゥ・ライド, Chiketto u Raido) that offers her a form of divine protection. In Jojolion, an elderly Lucy became an agent of the Speedwagon Foundation and encounters Fumi while investigating the Higashikata Family in 1941.
Funny Valentine (ファニー・ヴァレンタイン, Fanī Varentain)
Funny Valentine is the main antagonist of Steel Ball Run, and a dishonorably discharged American soldier who became the 23rd President of the United States. His ultimate goal is to reassemble the Saint Corpse and use its power for world dominion, using the corpse's heart to gain the Stand Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (, Dātī Dīzu Dan Dāto Chīpu (Itomo Tayasuku Okonawareru Egetsunai Kōi))[t] or D4C (, Dī Fō Shī) for short. D4C enables Valentine to travel between alternate dimensions by being pressed between two objects and transfer his mind into another version of himself, usually as a means to cheat death. The Stand also enables Valentine to summon others from alternate realities, though only he and his counterparts are immune to the usual demise of two iterations of the same person annihilating each other in the form of Menger sponges upon physical contact.
Diego Brando (ディエゴ・ブランドー, Diego Burandō)
Diego Brando, nicknamed Dio (ディオ), is a British racer in the Steel Ball Run, riding the horse Silver Bullet (シルバーバレット, Shirubā Baretto). He is initially just a rival to Gyro and Johnny, but allies himself with Valentine and grows to hate them. After being subject to the Stand of Dr. Ferdinand, Diego acquires one of the Saint Corpse's eyes and obtains the Stand Scary Monsters (, Sukearī Monsutā),[u] allowing him to transform into a dinosaur at will, as well as transform other living beings into dinosaurs or fossilize them. After he turns on the president, attempting to assassinate him, and dies, Valentine uses D4C to bring another Diego Brando into this iteration of reality. This alternate Diego possesses The World (, Za Wārudo).
Gyro Zeppeli (ジャイロ・ツェペリ, Jairo Tseperi)
Gyro Zeppeli is a disgraced magistrate and executioner from the Kingdom of Naples, who participates in the Steel Ball Run to free someone who he believes has been wrongly imprisoned, racing on his horse Valkyrie (ヴァルキリー, Varukirī). Gyro is a master of a mystical art called the Spin, which is channeled through Steel Balls and is the art of imparting the knowledge of the Golden rectangle into throwing the Steel Balls, causing the Spin to be transferred from the ball to the target. It has both healing and offensive properties, as the Zeppeli family has used the Spin in both their medical practice and in their work as executioners for the church. Gyro later develops an ability called Scan (スキャン, Sukyan) when one of his Steel Balls is imparted with a piece of the Saint's Corpse. Scan gives Gyro the ability to look inside people, making his Spin's attacks even more deadly. With the power of the Super Spin, accessed by having Valkyrie run at a fast enough speed to make everything incorporate the Golden rectangle, he develops the Stand Ball Breaker (ボール・ブレイカー, Bōru Bureikā), which, when a Steel Ball hits its mark, causes the vast energies kept by the Spin to accelerate the life of cells in the target so much so that the cells die. Gyro's real name is Julius Caesar Zeppeli ((ユーリウス・カイザー・ツェペリ,Yūriusu Kaizā Tseperi)).
Sandman (砂男サンドマン, Sandoman)
Sandman was a member from a Native American tribe, which he had become ostracized from for embraceming the "white man's" culture, he believes that the only way to stop the encroachment of his tribe's land is to play by the settlers' rules, thus he enters the Steel Ball Run race hoping to use the prize money to buy back his ancestor's land and protect his tribe. During the fight against Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppeli, Gyro uses his newfound Golden Rectangle technique to injure the overconfident Sandman, leading to his death. He uses the Stand called In a Silent Way (イン・ア・サイレント・ウェイ, In A Sairento Wei).

Part 8: JoJolion[edit]

The series follows the rebooted timeline as per Steel Ball Run, but the story takes place immediately after the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.

Josuke Higashikata (東方 定助, Higashikata Jōsuke)
The main protagonist of Jojolion, he was originally Josefumi Kujo (空条 仗世文, Kūjō Josefumi), a young man who was friends with his universe's version of Yoshikage Kira. When he helped Kira steal a branch of the Rokakaka Tree for his mother Holly, it resulted in Kira being fatally wounded before he and Josefumi were buried alive by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. The properties of the New Locacaca Fruit they created caused Josefumi to acquire parts of Kira's physical and genetic traits and effectively become a fusion of the two, an entirely different person with no memory of his past. He is found and named "Josuke" by Yasuho Hirose, who brings him into the care of the Higashikata family. When Josuke learns of his origins, he suffers an existential crisis until deciding to honor his components' intentions to save Holly and track down the New Locacaca.
Josuke possesses the Stand Soft & Wet (ソフト&ウェット, Sofuto Ando Wetto), which allows him to produce bubbles that upon contact with an object can steal an aspect of the object that can then be used for other purposes, such as a person's eyesight or the friction of the floor. Josuke is also able to freely control the size of these bubbles, creating small ones when he needs to steal something discretely or bigger ones when he needs to steal larger things, up to and including entire people. His bubbles are actually soft, spinning lines; thus revealing that his Stand is related to the Spin. Combined with Killer Queen's ability to create bombs, this unlocks a new ability called Soft & Wet: Go Beyond (S&Wソフトアンドウェット 越えて行く, Sofuto Ando Wetto Gō Biyondo), which creates explosive bubbles that can pass through any barrier, including Wonder of U's Flow of Calamity.
While Josefumi's connection to the Joestar family is ambiguous at best (he is inconsistently drawn with the Joestar birthmark, and his family tree beyond his parents is unknown), Kira is the great-great-grandson of Johnny Joestar, making Josuke the great-great-grandson of Johnny by proxy.
Yasuho Hirose (広瀬 康穂, Hirose Yasuho)
Yasuho is a young woman who discovers Josuke buried in the ground and helps him throughout the search for his true identity, and later helps him search for the Rokakaka. Her Stand is Paisley Park (ペイズリー・パーク, Peizurī Pāku),[v] which has the ability to "direct" things around Yasuho, although it often acts on Yasuho's subconscious needs rather than her being able to directly control it. Later gaining slightly better control over her Stand, Yasuho is eventually able to use Paisley Park to directly interface with different types of electronic devices and gather data from them.
Rai Mamezuku (豆銑 礼, Mamezuku Rai)
A man who is the Higashikata family's private fruit grower and appraiser. After being tracked down and attacked by a hostile Stand user due to his affiliations with the Higashikata family, Mamezuku decides to meet up with Josuke and Yasuho for help, eventually joining the two in their search for the Rokakaka. His Stand is Doggy Style (ドギー・スタイル, Dogī Sutairu), which enables him to unravel his body into prehensile ribbon-like wires, not only increasing his range but also increasing his durability to certain forms of attacks. He knows the Spin, and is the one who revealed the secret within Josuke's stand.
Norisuke Higashikata IV (四代目東方憲助, Yondaime Higashikata Norisuke)
The current head of the Higashikata family, and owner of the Higashikata Fruit Company. In the hopes of helping his family find a cure for the Higashikata Family Curse, a disease that gradually petrifies the firstborn male of every generation, he adopts Josuke Higashikata to help him recover his memories, as he knew that Josuke was searching for a cure in his past life. His Stand is King Nothing (キング・ナッシング, Kingu Nasshingu), which is able to break down into jigsaw pieces, and track a specific person or object with their scent.
Jobin Higashikata (東方 常敏, Higashikata Jōbin)
A major antagonist of the part, he is the eldest son of Norisuke, and the heir to the Higashikata Fruit Company. Jobin worked with Tamaki Damo's Locacaca Smuggling Organization to launder money for them, in the hopes of taking one of the fruits to cure his family from the Higashikata Curse, and elevate their place in society. Jobin is willing to push his family to the top by any means necessary, even resulting to murder. His stand is Speed King (スピード・キング, Supīdo Kingu), which has the ability to store heat in any object it touches, which can become as hot as 300° C, and can be transferred to humans who touch such objects, with the possibility of being lethal. Alternatively, he can simply use Speed King to touch humans, and heat them directly, which can place them in heat strokes, or worse.
Tooru (透龍, Tōru)
Tooru is the main antagonist of Jojolion, who is introduced in the Doctor Wu and Awaking 3 Leaves story arc. He is portrayed as Yasuho Hirose's ex-boyfriend from high school and a part-time worker at TG University Hospital with ties to the hospital's head doctor, Satoru Akefu. It is revealed later that Akefu is an alias for his Stand Wonder of U (ワンダー・オブ・Uユー, Wandā Obu Yū), and that he is the true mastermind behind the activities of the Rock Humans. His main goal is to obtain the New Locacaca, causing him to clash with Josuke and the Higashikata family. Wonder of U's ability is "Calamity", which causes anyone who attempts to pursue him or his stand to suffer spontaneous freak accidents via objects crashing into them with disproportionate force (A cigarette butt has enough force to pierce someone's hand). It is revealed near the end of Part 8 that his Stand only manipulated the flow of the Calamity towards those who pursued him, and that it was a force of nature itself. Upon Tooru's death, the Calamity continued to attack Norisuke IV, only being stopped by Josuke destroying it with Soft & Wet: Go Beyond.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Every Main Character, Ranked By Power Level

The story of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is packed with powerful and colorful characters, most of whom are either Stand users, Hamon/ripple users, or vampires. The anime has covered the first five story arcs so far, from Phantom Blood to Golden Wind, and that was more than enough time to introduce some true powerhouses.

RELATED: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 10 Stand Users Who Could Take Over the World

The fighters in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure are famed for using clever, resourceful, and unpredictable moves to win the day, but they don't do this at the expense of sheer power. Ten particular JoJo characters wield brute strength beyond anything the other characters are capable of, either through vampirism, Hamon, or their Stand.

10 Carne Could Devour Any Enemy With His Stand, Notorious B.I.G

The minor villain known as Carne is an odd case, since his incredible powers are activated after his death. Once he lured Guido Mista into shooting and killing him, Carne was able to launch his attack with his ravenous Stand, Notorious B.I.G. This thing was downright unstoppable.

Notorious B.I.G acts entirely on its own, sensing motion to track its next victim. This Stand can gobble up anything and grow bigger, and there was no obvious way to destroy it. This Stand was defeated by being dropped into the ocean, where it couldn't harm anyone.

9 Vanilla Ice Could Take Out Nearly Any Foe With Cream

This vampire Stand user appeared near the end of Stardust Crusaders, and he was one of the strongest Stand users of the entire arc. Vanilla Ice's Stand, Cream, was a humanoid that could be worn like an oversized suit of armor, and Vanilla Ice often operated it while nestled inside.

Cream can enter an alternate dimension and attack out of nowhere, making it difficult to predict or evade. It can also vaporize anything it eats, teleporting the matter to who knows where. Both Muhammad Avdol and Iggy met grim fates at the hands of Cream until Polnareff finally triumphed.

8 Wamuu Was The Master Of Wind

Wamuu was one of the Pillar Men whom the hero Joseph Joestar faced, and he nearly won during his chariot race with Joseph one fateful night. Wamuu can control wind, and that, combined with his great physical strength, made him a formidable foe.

RELATED: JoJo: 10 Most Gruesome Deaths, Ranked

Wamuu can create a divine windstorm to shred human foes to bits, and he can use even stronger wind-based moves, at the cost of needing time to recuperate after using up so much energy. He's also a crafty tactician, making him even more deadly.

7 Yoshikage Kira Could Blow People Up Out Of Nowhere

The assassin-like villain Yoshikage Kira haunted the Diamond is Unbreakable arc, lurking in the shadows and killing women to steal their hands. Kira is a bit awkward in a straight-up fight compared to characters such as Wamuu, but his powers are truly fearsome, and he often uses the element of surprise to his advantage.

Kira can turn anything, living or not, into a powerful bomb with a touch, and this power is ideal for laying traps. His Stand, Killer Queen, can also perform melee attacks, and Killer Queen has a mini-Stand called Sheer Heart Attack that will chase the enemy and blow up. It's near-indestructible, too.

6 Josuke Higashikata Can Punch Or Repair Almost Anything

If punching was Josuke's only trick when using Crazy Diamond, he wouldn't be nearly as impressive as he is. Crazy Diamond is a powerful melee Stand, to be sure, but it can also fix or heal things by striking them, and that power is shockingly flexible in combat.

RELATED: 10 Strongest Weather Manipulators in Anime, Ranked

With that repair ability, Josuke can heal his allies, trap enemies inside damaged objects by repairing them, track enemies by repairing them and having the broken-off piece follow them, and much more. It helps that Josuke has a clever and resourceful mind, too.

5 Jotaro Kujo Was The Ultimate Fist-Fighter With Star Platinum

Jotaro Kujo is arguably the most iconic hero of the franchise, and he was the one who triumphed over DIO during the climax of Stardust Crusaders. Jotaro is a sly and stubborn fighter, like his grandfather, and he has a Stand to match: Star Platinum.

Star Platinum is the master of close-range Stand combat, boasting incredible speed, strength, endurance, and reflexes. After seeing The World in action, Jotaro was also able to freeze time for a brief duration.

4 Dio Brando Mastered Time Itself With The World

Dio Brando returned in the 1980s as DIO, the world's most powerful vampire and the wielder of The World, a truly incredible Stand. DIO wasn't as clever as Jotaro, but his Stand was slightly stronger overall, and DIO has the added benefit of being a vampire.

RELATED: 10 Strongest Laser Users in Anime, Ranked

All this makes DIO nigh-unbeatable for most Stand users, and at one point, he could freeze time for well over eight seconds, more than enough time to slaughter his enemies with impunity.

3 Diavolo Could Cut Away Segments Of Time With King Crimson

The ultimate villain of Golden Wind was Diavolo, the boss of the dreaded Passione crime family. He doesn't like to fight in person if he can help it, but once Bruno Bucciarati's squad cornered him, he fought back with his incredible Stand, King Crimson, and its fearsome ability.

King Crimson is a deadly melee fighter, and it can also manipulate time to avoid all enemy attacks while launching a counterattack. The time is then erased, but the effects of Diavolo's attack still take place. Diavolo can easily outmaneuver and kill any foe with this ability.

2 Kars Sought To Become An Ultimate Being

During the Battle Tendency arc, Joseph Joestar managed to defeat Esidisi and Wamuu, but Kars was another matter entirely. He had immense strength and speed, not to mention those blades, and then he became the ultimate life form once he used the Red Stone of Aja.

Kars became the embodiment of all life, from squirrels to birds and beyond, and he was seemingly indestructible. Not even the sun could harm him, and he survived a volcano, too. He was only defeated when he was flung into space, where he froze up.

1 Giorno Giovanna Became Truly Unstoppable With Gold Experience Requiem

Ordinarily, Giorno Giovanna is quite powerful with his Stand, Gold Experience, but he's not the strongest character of the entire JoJo anime. All that changed when he got his hands on Gold Experience Requiem via the Stand Arrow. Thanks to this power, he was able to defeat Diavolo at long last.

Gold Experience Requiem is the ultimate Stand in the JoJo anime thus far, and it can famously use its "return to zero" ability to trap a target in infinite loops of their own death. This ability is automatic and doesn't require Giorno's input at all. Diavolo was helpless as GER forced him to die forever and ever.

The essence of the neighbor's request was as follows. Either because of the harsh climate of the Arctic, or the transitional age, or maybe for some other reason, Natasha started having health problems. The parents took the girl to doctors and examinations, put her in a sanatorium and fed her with fresh fruit.

In recent years, the ailments have receded, but the doctors still strictly ordered to carefully look after the daughter and immediately take action at the slightest pranks. Of her young body.

Then she told me to stand in a knee-elbow position to examine my colon. Taking out the expander from the box, she thickly lubricated it and my anus with lubricant. And I felt that that cold beginning would enter me rather quickly. And then expanding in my ass, it hurt me, it felt like my gut would burst. She moved the expander deeper and deeper and in different directions, I moaned softly, from pain and discomfort.
