*** To make it even more of a friggin' epic win: by that time, D'arby had already stolen the souls of Joseph and Polnareff, and made Jotaro gamble his soul to play. Jotaro not only bets his soul, he bets Avdol's, ''Kakyoin's''(who's in the hospital disabled at this time) and '''''his own mother's''''', all to force a SadisticChoice to which the above blinded D'Arby to the [[TakeAThirdOption third option]] [[note]]That option, of course, would be to call Jotaro's bluff; if D'Arby refused to spill his guts on Dio's Stand, Jotaro would break more than just his hand, whereas if he did spill his guts, Dio would kill him[[/note]]. End result: D'arby becomes a complete wreck.

** After encountering Dio, Kakyoin [[spoiler:manages to entangle a plethora of buildings in his Stand. He specifies that it will detect anything that Dio or the World happen to do when they come in contact with it. Dio bypasses it completely, by using his Stand's Time Stop power, and is able to impale Kakyoin with the World's arm. Despite living his last moments, Kakyoin manages to keep calm, analyze the ability that the World possesses, and even pass on his conclusion to the rest of the group by blasting a clock tower with his Emerald Splash.]]

* Polnareff has a better one: his whole fight with Vanilla Ice. [[spoiler: After seeing two of his friends die by Ice's hands and being pushed to the brink of death, he figures out Ice only survived being stabbed in the head because Dio turned him into a vampire, and forces him into the sunlight.]]

* The Part 3 2014 anime has a subtle one - Star Platinum's punches have a sound that can only be described as a gun firing when it punches, so we get a amazing scene of Star Platinum closing it's fist, one finger at a time, and launching into it's very first ORA ORA ORA - it sounds like someone firing a machinegun and its INCREDIBLY thrilling, it adds completely to showing how fast and intense Star Platinum's punches are.
** To add, [[spoiler:Dio's]] own attacks sound like a ''turret'' is going off! It goes to show just how truly powerful [[spoiler: The World]] is, even compared to Star Platinum.

Not only does it have the usual added sound effects, but we get a few changes too; such as the [[spoiler:knife headed for Joseph's throat replaced with Dio's hand, and a shot of Star Platinum guarding Jotaro from the multiple knives thrown at him.]]

** Followed up by the anime's portrayal of Jotaro's trump over Dio, standing behind the vampire as a triumphant score plays, breaking his legs with a kick from Star Platinum, and then, even blinded briefly by blood, delivering a decisive blow to The World's leg [[spoiler:shattering The World and, by the rules of Stands, Dio himself along with it.]]
** Points has to be made to TakehitoKoyasu's performance as Dio, who definitely delivers the [[LargeHam ham]] that made the character a meme in the first place. You can tell he had a lot of fun recording him in these past few episodes.

* Dio himself has his moments to shine, most notably in Part 3 where he decides that the most effective way to kill Jotaro would be to drop a steamroller on him. This moment was considered so awesome that it became [[MemeticMutation an internet meme]] via a popular [[http://dagobah.net/flash/mudah.swf flash video]].

** One of Dio's best moments, coming from the OVA, is something that requires a little thought. Remember when Jotaro has Star Platinum carve a minaret in half and throw it an approaching Dio, then he explodes out of it to punch Dio a few times? What's cool isn't that Dio was able to chew away the building by punching it, without the assistance of The World, and not that he completely repels Jotaro's attack anyway, but that Jotaro was only able to get close enough because he occupied Dio's attention with the minaret. Dio is so tough that a ''building'' thrown at him is a ''distraction.''

** Dio deciding to use his infamous FlechetteStorm on Jotaro, knowing he wouldn't be able to block all of them. And he checks the ground to check Jotaro's heartbeat and breathing, and then decides to decapitate him with a stop sign. If not for Polnareff, he would've killed him.
*** Polnareff's attack becomes even more of a CMOA in the original OVA, since not only Jotaro hadn't restarted his heart yet, and was thus completely defenseless; but Polnareff forced Dio to use his TimeStop against him, thus leaving himself completely open to Jotaro's attack.

* At the official [=JoJo=]'s panel at Anime Expo 2016, Viz Media teased a special guest appearance. Turns out, it was a video message from ''Hirohiko Araki himself'', [[{{HeartwarmingMoments}} thanking the American fandom for their support]], and saying he'd like to visit eventually. Not only that, but the panel came with the announcement of more manga, an English translation of Araki's "how to make manga" book, Blu-Rays of Parts 1-4, and another sneak preview of the long-awaited Stardust Crusaders dub. Alongside the fan panel, acknowledgement at the Warner Bros. Anime panel (where limited edition Stardust Crusaders postcards were given out), and ''Eyes of Heaven'' being playable at the Bandai-Namco booth, it looks like the series finally went from NoExportForYou to CashCowFranchise in the States!

* The anime making it onto Creator/{{Toonami}} on Creator/AdultSwim, ensuring that many more audiences beyond those of streaming services will be able to see it (with an english dub, to boot). Props especially go to Creator/VizMedia securing the distribution rights from Warner Bros., otherwise the show quite possibly wouldn't have aired at all (due to Warner Bros. not being interested in airing the show on television).

* During the fight with Axl R.O., Johnny figures out a new way to use Tusk... but its first use gets him in trouble by saddling him with Axl's own "sacrifices" (which manifest as angry, murderous ghosts). Axl swipes his Corpse Parts and makes a break for it. Johnny's solution? [[spoiler:''Let Axl kill him'' - as he learned earlier, killing someone while Civil War is active makes them one of your "sacrifices" and brings them back. So he unhesitatingly lets Axl stab him in the throat, which causes him to appear unharmed right next to Axl ''and'' puts all of Axl's "sacrifices" back on their original owner.]]
