Have I ever mentioned that I love JJBA?

Does a bear shit in the woods?

Having run for 25 years, over 8 arcs in which a whole new cast of characters is introduced each time, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has exactly one metric motherfuck of characters. And herein, I select something of a balance of personal favourites and generally great characters (admittedly my favourite of the lot is #3, but I don’t quite consider him the best).

P.S: A couple of these writeups will be copypasta’d in part from previous writeups because what even is the point in rewriting the exact thing I already wrote?

10. Jolyne Kujo (Part VI: Stone Ocean)

Jolyne is sort of a halfway point between her dad and her great-grandfather. She has Jotaro’s badass delinquency and one-liners, mixed with the thuggish hot-headedness of Joseph.

Though she’s never quite as good at being either of those two as they are, she also gets a decent backstory explaining her delinquency, featuring the all-too-common factor in JoJo backstories (daddy issues). And once she decides to try and reconcile with her father, she is perhaps the most determined and unflinching JoJo of the lot.


9. Dio Brando (Part I: Phantom Blood/Part III: Stardust Crusaders/Part VI: Stone Ocean)

Controversial choice, I guess, since Dio is perhaps the most iconic character in the whole franchise. But let’s face it – Dio is basically two-dimensional as hell. Aside from the “Daddy Issues” excuse, he’s completely irredeemably evil – he’s never even really displayed as anything else until the Stone Ocean flashbacks, when we see how he was around his allies.


COMPLETELY HETEROSEXUAL is what he was around his allies.


9. Johnny Joestar (Part VII: Steel Ball Run/Part VIII: JoJolion)

Even early on, though, Johnny wasn’t bad, though mostly because he had Gyro to bounce off of. In a way, their dynamic was similar to Caesar and Joseph from part II, but with the roles reversed.

Unlike them, though, the breathing room in Steel Ball run allowed for more Seinfeldian dialogue, building up the bromance between the two of them, allowing us to gradually get attached to Johnny whilst Gyro carries the weight. And once we learn about Johnny’s backstory, how he became crippled, and why he dislikes Diego – oh yeah, and Daddy Issues ™ – you understand his character a lot better. He starts off unmemorable but by the end he’s one of the best JoJos.


7. Jotaro Kujo (Part II: Stardust Crusaders/Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable/Part VI: Stone Ocean)

Jotaro is pretty much the poster-boy for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and with the possible exception of Dio he’s perhaps the most iconic and beloved of the lot. Following on from a ridiculously strong lead in the previous arc, Jotaro took the lead by letting the rest of the cast take the lead, allowing him to be cool, stoic, and rarely break a sweat, – Jotaro is about as cool as they come.


The one-liners help.

He’s calm and collected at all times, but this doesn’t keep him from emotional moments – if anything it serves to make them more intense. It’s been stated by Hirohiko Araki that he doesn’t really know how to act around people, and tends to assume people know what he’s thinking anyway (which is of course completely wrong). This comes back to bite him in his relationship with his daughter, in spite of him always having the best interests in mind for her.


6. Diego Brando (Part VII: Steel Ball Run)



Anyway, Steel Ball Run was where Araki finally got the hang of backstories. He’d tried them numerous times before, but with few exceptions (Jolyne, Pucci, the Zeppelis, and that’s about it) they were always superfluous.

Every significant character in Steel Ball Run has a backstory – and each and every one improves the character, providing basis for their motivations instead of being the only substance they have. And while Diego’s backstory is an obvious ripoff from Tezuka’s Dororo, it adds a lot to what could have just been a Dio clone, making him sympathetic where the original was not, having built himself up from his terrible childhood to a successful jockey.

Despite being similarly ruthless to the original, he’s not amoral, and straddles the line between villain and anti-hero, making him a dynamic character and a joy to watch.



5. Jean-Pierre Polnareff (Part III: Stardust Crusaders/Part V: Vento Aureo)


And the worst luck with toilets out of anyone ever.

Initially, Polnareff was a distant, lone wolf (and in the anime version, he was also willingly working for Dio as opposed to having been brainwashed). He felt no loyalty to the team, and was only working with them out of convenience to try and find the man who killed his sister. By the end of it, he’s extremely loyal to, uh… the surviving members of the team, partly through the sacrifice of certain others.

You know what, I’m just going to stop there. I can’t really go into more detail without saying who dies. If you’re annoyed that I told you that anyone dies, don’t be, someone always dies in JJBA. It’s a given.

Anyway, short version is that he’s lovably stupid and has some pretty solid character development.


4. Gyro Zeppeli (Part VII: Steel Ball Run)

Part VII wasn’t just where Araki got the hang of backstories – the dialogue is noticeably much better, and Gyro supplies the bulk of it.

Though Johnny is technically the protagonist, Gyro firmly led the story, bringing Johnny into the Steel Ball Run to begin with, being the first to have a backstory and a motivation to be in the Steel Ball Run, and most importantly, being one of the most instantly loveable and attention-grabbing characters in the entire JoJo saga.

It’s quite hard to not love Gyro – he’s wacky, loveable, creative, compassionate, and has one of the most noble goals in an arc full of noble goals.

3. Funny Valentine (Part VII: Steel Ball Run)

At this point you have probably worked out what my favourite arc is, if you didn’t already know.

Funny Valentine is quite easily the most underrated JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure character (seriously, 9 MAL favourites, what the fuck).

Despite being the arc’s villain, he has perhaps the most noble goal of anyone – to secure prosperity for his country. If he wasn’t so deliciously evil about how he did it, he wouldn’t even be a villain.

But thankfully, he is. And due to the nature of his stand, he’s ridiculously good at it. D4C makes him damn near unstoppable, and he executes every action he takes with it in the utmost of style. “Dojyaaaaaaa

Like pretty much everyone in Steel Ball Run, his backstory makes him so much better than he would otherwise have been. Even before he went into politics, he’d fought tooth and nail for his country. He’d been through hell for it, even having the Stars and Stripes carved onto his back in the process (incidentally this is like the coolest piece of character design I swear).


He is also an extremely dynamic and unpredictable character. His face is an unreadable mask, and he is all too silver-tongued when he needs to be. In spite of his willingness to do anything to reach his goal, he has a sense of honour, ensuring to keep his promises – though sometimes only in the most literal sense.

His defeat is one of the best moments of characterisation in JoJo, though. I won’t say exactly why what with spoilers and all, but his final actions are equal parts one of the most heroic and evil things in JJBA.


2. Yoshikage Kira (Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable)

Kira’s characterisation revolves around an excellent paradox: his desire to live a perfect, normal life, in contrast to his carnal desire for women’s hands… forcibly separated from their bodies.

This is shown excellently by his various strange and meticulous habits, but more than anything by his stand. Killer Queen is one of the stands stated to have formed as a manifestation of its users will. Ignoring for a second that Killer Queen has an absolutely bitchin’ design and a brilliant name pun that works on god knows how many levels (listen to the song in question if you don’t get it), it’s a perfect representation of Kira. It suits him down to the personality, the appearance, and especially how well its ability suits both him and his needs. It’s probably the most perfect stand-to-user matchup in the entirety of JJBA.

This even carries over to his afterlife as shown in the Deadman’s Questions arc of Under Execution, Under Jailbreak. While most of his previous life is a mystery to him, his drive for normalcy in the face of being born into deranged circumstances is what drives him. I think it’s a great reflection of his character.

Also, fun fact: his design is based on David Bowie.


1. Joseph Joestar (Part II: Battle Tendency/Part III: Stardust Crusaders/Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable)

Joseph Joestar is perhaps the quintessential JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure character.

While Joseph is a dead ringer for Jonathan in appearance, you would never mistake one for the other – they’re polar opposites in terms of personality. Where Jonathan was noble, gentlemanly, and generically heroic, Joseph is brash, loud, and not afraid to pick a fight.

On top of that, he’s not just willing to fight dirty – fighting dirty is his defining character trait. Not that he is without a sense of honour, though – his reasoning for picking fights is always noble (well, almost), and does not hesitate to put himself in harm’s way for a loved one.

While this does, to some degree, make him sound like a standard idiot hero shonen protagonist, the key factor that sets Joseph apart from the ilk is that his attitude is misleading – he’s incredibly smart and quick-witted, and always prepared. Joseph is a big fan of Sun Tzu’s “The Art Of War”, and it shows in his continued pragmatism in combat and his constant trickery.

Or just post a comment. That’d be kinda nice.

Thank you from FandomSpot

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of my favorite franchises of all time.

Amalgamating the absurd and the touching into one unique package, Araki managed to craft a compelling story of progression and improvement.

Each part expands on the previous ones, constantly referring itself to create an experience unlike any other.

One of the series’ greatest strengths are its characters, all able to stand out and leave an impression. And for this list I’ll be ranking the 25 best ones, so some spoilers ahead!

This is naturally going to be a subjective list – and we’ll be going over the parts yet to be adapted, too – so please bear with me here… I had to narrow this list down from 70.

25. Noriaki Kakyoin

25 noriaki kakyoin jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 3: Stardust Crusaders.

After a visit to Egypt resulted in brainwashing by DIO, Kakyoin tries but fails to kill Jotaro Kujo. Following the influence, he dedicates himself to the Stardust Crusaders to hunt DIO down and kill him.

He’s a womanizer and a loyal companion for his teammates. One of the best JoBro’s out there.

His friendship with Jotaro Kujo, and his complex Stand – Hierophant Green – makes him a versatile best friend character who leaves a large impression by the end.

24. Narancia Ghirga

24 narancia ghirga jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 5: Golden Wind

When his mother died and his father became estranged to him, Narancia turned to the streets.

After being deceived by his friend and spending a yar in a detention center, he was saved from homeless starvation by Bruno and recruited to Passione.

His loyalty towards his friends, illiterate and under-educated attitude, and aggressive temperament, make him a consistently engaging character.

His enthusiasm is contagious, infecting his group (and the audience) on their travels across Italy.

His Stand, Aerosmith, is a small fighter plane capable of packing a punch and tracking a person’s breath.

23. Ringo Roadagain

23 ringo roadagain jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 7: Steel Ball Run

Ringo is a minor character who makes a large impression due to his muted personality, honor system, and interesting Stand.

As a child, he was constantly ill and weak until one day when a man murdered his family, prompting Ringo to kill in self-defense.

Ever since, his constitution has improved with each battle he engages with. Believing that conflict betters his soul and body.

He is a gun wielding duelist who can use his stand, Mandom, to rewind time up to 6-seconds.

Despite having so little presence, Ringo is an unforgettable part of the overall narrative that leaves an impact on our protagonists. I love his click, clean design, too.

22. Risotto Nero

22 risotto nero jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 5: Golden Wind

Risotto first got his hands dirty avenging his cousin at the age of 14, which quickly threw him into the professional world of assassination.

In his late 20s, he’s given leadership of La Squadra Esecuzioni, a squad called upon for hitman purposes.

However his team decides to revolt against the boss of Passione, making them core antagonists for Team Bucciarati to overcome.

His stand, Metallica, allows him to manipulate metal via magnetism.

This is powerful on its own, but when compounded with the iron found in blood, allows him to literally form a pair of scissors in your body. He’s a lethal, ruthless personality who is always alert to any enemy he may encounter.

I love his cold, complex behavior and flamboyant neo-Gothic design.

21. Kars

21 kars jojos bizarre adventure screenshot

From Part 2: Battle Tendency

The main antagonist of Battle Tendency, Kars, is the leader of the mysterious Pillar Man.

Centuries ago, he crafted the Stone Mask (that turned Dio into a vampire).

His constitution forbids him from being in the sun, and so he aims to claim the Red Stone of Aja to grant him immunity and become an Ultimate Being.

His presence can be felt throughout the entire series due to being an immortal ancient being, setting off many of the events from before part 1.

20. Joseph Joestar

20 joseph joestar jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 2: Battle Tendency

Known for his cocky, dishonorable, and conman attitude.

Joseph is a troublemaker who knows when to give up, always willing to unleash his ultimate move of Running Away.

He’s an integral part of the JoJoverse, appearing in multiple parts at different ages.

Joseph is a natural Ripple user, and eventually gets his own underpowered Stand – Hermit Purple – that allows him to track people through technology.

19. Enrico Pucci

19 enrico pucci jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 6: Stone Ocean

The antagonist of Stone Ocean, Enrico Pucci, is a devout chaplain priest overlooking Green Dolphin Street Prison. His goal is to achieve heaven, a goal laid out to him by his lover DIO.

He is a strong believer of determinism and wields this belief with arrogance and confidence.

He acquires three different Stands throughout the series. Whitesnake can take a person’s soul and Stand ability in the form of a disk; C-Moon makes him the center of gravity, shifting the orientation of his enemies within a large radius; and Made in Heaven, which can accelerate the rate of time through universe gravity manipulation.

He’s a formidable, uniquely designed antagonist.

18. Jean Pierre Polnareff

18 jean pierre polnareff jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 3: Stardust Crusaders

The boasting Frenchman Polnareff is on a quest to avenge his sister, killed by a man with two right hands.

We’re first introduced to him when he attacks our protagonists under the belief one of them killed her.

When he discovers this was a lie made by DIO, who himself if harboring the murderer, he joins the Stardust Crusaders on hunting him down.

Driven by a strong honor code and peculiar, exaggerated sensibilities, Polnareff is a standout character of JoJo’s. His Stand – Silver Chariot – is simple but effective; it wields a sharp rapier lade and is one of the fastest.

17. Jolyne Cujoh

17 jolyne cujoh jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 6: Stone Ocean

Our first introduction to Jolyne is when she’s being carted off to Green Dolphin Street Prison after being framed for driving under the influence and killing someone.

Soon, weird things start happening around her and she realizes she needs to escape – except she has a score to settle with prison warden, Father Enrico Pucci.

We quickly discover she’s the estranged daughter of a previous protagonist, and within no time she receives a Stand.

Stone Free permits Jolyne the ability to unravel herself into string, making her a versatile and difficult person to encounter.

16. Slow Dancer

16 slow dancer jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 7: Steel Ball Run

An old 11-year-old appaloosa known for its communicative difficulty.

However once bonded with, it’s a fast and reliable steed able to maintain great speeds with stellar intelligence.

He becomes one of Johnny and Gyro’s greatest allies, always there when they need him and playing a key component in their battle against the President of the United States of America.

15. Yasuho Hirose

15 yasuho hirose jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 8: JoJolion

Yasuho is an inquisitive university student living in the quiet village of Morioh. At the beginning, she discovers the protagonist of JoJolion and rescues him after discovering he has no memory.

Throughout the series she serves as his rock, always rooting him to reality and reaffirming his new identity through his romantic connection to her.

Her stand, Paisley Park, can manipulate technology to investigate – it’s like the ultimate Google.

14. Giorno Giovanna

14 giorno giovanna jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 5: Golden Wind

Giorno suffered from the abuse of his stepfather until befriending and saving a gangster in the streets.

From that day, he knew what his dream was: to become a top gangster and use his power for the good of the people.

Calm, collected, composed.

Giorno Giovanna is the embodiment of resolve and determination, not letting anything stop him and his stand, Gold Experience – which can embed life energy into anything.

13. Doppio Vinegar

13 doppio vinegar jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 5: Golden Wind

The secondary antagonist, working directly with the Boss, Doppio is an unassuming man with eccentric behavior.

He often hears the Boss communicating with him through environmental object.

He possesses half of King Crimson – Epitaph – which gives him a ten second glimpse into the future.

One of my favorite characters for his unusual attitude and killer design.

The further you get, the more about Doppio is revealed.

12. Josuke Higashikata

12 josuke higashikata jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable

Josuke is just about to start his first year of high school when his nephew arrives to the quiet town of Morioh searching for a serial killer.

In no time at all, his humdrum life is turned around when he begins encountering Stand users threatening to disrupt the relationships made in his town.

He’s a carefree, though very caring soul who only gets angry when you insult his hair or harm those he cares for.

His Stand, Crazy Diamond, can reverse damage and repair anything, making him a fantastic combat support.

11. Guido Mista

11 guido mista jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 5: Golden Wind

When he was a child, a neighbor of Mista’s adopted a kitten from a litter of four that then proceeded to claw the owner’s eyes out.

This left him with a crippling feat of 4 (tetraphobia). Then, in his later teenage years, he rescued a woman from assault – only to enter an altercation with the men. He somehow avoided every bullet before returning fire with perfect accuracy.

He was sentenced to thirty years in jail, only pardoned thanks to the sway of Bruno Bucciarata and requested for his power.

10. Jotaro Kujo

10 jotaro kujo jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 3: Stardust Crusaders

Many people’s favorite JoJo character, due to his stoic and calm attitude that unravels over the course of the franchise and his repeated appearances.

We first meet him in a jail cell he refuses to leave due to the ‘ghost’ possessing him.

When his grandfather Joseph reveals it as a Stand, and requests his help in taking down DIO, he refuses.

Until his mother falls sick, and he decides to join the Stardust Crusaders.

His stand is legendary. Star Platinum is strong – very, very strong – and fast.

This is because he distorts the perception of time when it punches, though its true power had not yet woken.

9. Jobin Higashikata

09 jobin higashikata jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 8: JoJolion

Jobin puts his wife, Mitsuba, and son, Tsurugi, above even himself.

He’s searching for a Locacaca fruit in order to cure Tsurugi of the ailment that has cursed the Higashikata family.

His design is really cool, wearing a black hoodie underneath a thorned jacket.

He’s fascinated by beetles and collects them avidly. Despite his honorable, complex side – he’s considered a major antagonist for the protagonists of JoJolion.

His Stand, Speed King, can produce and manipulate intense levels of heat with things he’s in contact with.

8. Rohan Kishibe

08 rohan kishibe jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable

Rohan is a prolific, renown manga artist who holds the art in the highest regard.

He is often dragged into the mischief of the town against his will, but quickly grows a trusting relationship with the cast except Josuke who he inherently distrusts.

His design is stellar; neat an unique, with his layered hair almost acting as a crown.

His Stand reflects his career and outlook on people. Heaven’s Door lets him read people, and even alter their ‘story’ by writing or editing things.

In the right hands, Heaven’s Door would be one of the strongest, were it not owned by someone who just wants to draw.

7. Yoshikage Kira

07 yoshikage kira jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable

Kira is torn between his two instincts: to have a peaceful, lonesome life, and to murder and salvage human hands.

Naturally, they’re opposing sides threatening to collapse into one another.

When he accidentally raises his infamy, he attracts Josuke and his friends. He uses his Stand, Killer Queen, to put an end to anybody who gets in the way of that peaceful life. It can explode anything it touches, among other things.

6. Dio Brando (DIO) (Diego Brando)

06 dio brando jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 1: Phantom Blood

One of the best antagonists of all time. Witty, completely arrogant, and unwilling to be perceived as anything less than a God.

I love all of his designs, and he steals the show with each appearance.

Dio Brando is a commoner of grandiose ambition, adopted into the Joestar family where he plots to usurp his new brother Jonathan.

However, he becomes a vampire after encountering the Stone Mask.

DIO is a 100-year-old immortal vampire keen to conquer the world and rule supreme, wielding his powerful Stand, The World, which permits him to stop time for up to 9 seconds (which can decrease / increase based on training).

Diego Brando is a selfish genius jockey with parent issues keen to compete and win the Steel Ball Run race.

He soon enters an intense, violent rivalry with Gyro and Johnny. He achieves dominance of the Stand Scary Monsters, allowing him to transform himself – and other biological entities – into dinosaurs, enhancing his already superior senses.

5. Funny Valentine

05 funny valentine jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 7: Steel Ball Run

The main antagonist of part 7, and the 23rd President of the United States.

He observes the events of the Steel Ball Run race from the sidelines, hoping to creep ever closer to his ulterior goal.

His Stand, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (D4C) allow him to travel across the multiverse, bringing alternate versions of himself and others into his original timeline.

As such, his power is near-immeasurable in its potential – especially when it evolves to gain the ability, Love Train.

4. Johnny Joestar

04 johnny joestar jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 7: Steel Ball Run

Johnny Joestar lost the use of his legs when he was shot in the spine at the height of his jockey career.

His life subsequently went downhill after he caused the death of his dear brother, eventually succumbing to a deep and intense depression.

When he meets Gyro Zeppeli before the beginning of the Steel Ball Run, he sees hope for the first time and decides to follow the man into the race to overcome himself and improve his resolve. I love his determination and depth, so he quickly became a favorite for me.

His Stand manifests later, so he mainly revolves on the enigmatic power of the Spin taught to him by Gyro. However, his Stand is called Tusk.

It can spin his fingernails into bullets and evolve into three different forms.

3. Gyro Zeppeli

03 gyro zeppeli jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 7: Steel Ball Run

The Zeppeli family are masters of the Spin – a mysterious ability reliant on rotation and the Golden Ratio – and Gyro is its youngest member.

The Zeppelis are executioners of the Kingdom of Naples, and he enters the Steel Ball Run to pardon a child he was unable to kill.

Gyro is one of the most fleshed out, endearing characters in the franchise.

His design – the hat, the goggles, the grills! – feature wholly unique elements to him, making him stand out in an already vibrant cast. He’s an honorable warrior and serves as a teacher for Johnny Joestar.

His Stand depends on him executing an incredibly rare Golden Spin. Ball Breaker can travel dimensional barriers and rapidly accelerate aging.

2. Bruno Bucciarati

02 bruno bucciarati jojos bizarre adventure anime

From Part 5: Golden Wind

Bruno is a Mafioso of Passione, working directly under Polpo as a leader of his own team.

He’s sent out to find the killer of Leaky-Eye Luca, and quickly discovers and befriends the aspiring Giorno Giovanna. He’s tasked with protecting Trish, the daughter of the boss, though him and Giorno have ulterior motives.

His calm, motherly demeanor, and patient yet intense attitude, makes him stand out. Fabulous in his design, with various zips adorning his gorgeous suit, Bruno steals the show to become the true Best Girl.

His stand, Sticky Fingers, allows him to open zips in any surface to then enter or emerge from. This makes him a versatile, acrobatic, and unpredictable opponent.

1. Gappy (Josuke Higashikata)

01 gappy jojos bizarre adventure

From Part 8: JoJolion

Gappy (as fans call him based on his diastema) is my favorite JoJo’s character so far. He begins the story with retrograde amnesia – literally a blank slate – and aims to rekindle his true self.

But along the way he develops a new identity and sense of self, developing new friends, and even entering a new family, making him wonder whether he should.

He has four split-irises, four testicles, and a tongue made of two distinct shades and textures.

His brilliant sailor uniform design ends up becoming a huge defining part of his character, and the way he doesn’t properly fit in the town of Morioh.

Nonetheless, he’s perhaps the most sympathetic JoJo yet.

He feels human, weak and frail at times yet never lacking in that hallmark Joestar resolve.

His Stand is Soft & Wet; it can steal properties (eyesight of the eyes, light from a bulb) and redirect or extinguish them via small soap bubbles that pop to capture the targeted aspect.

I cannot wait to see JoJolion adapted!
