* AMillionIsAStatistic[=/=]ShutUpKirk: His response to Zeppeli on how many people he killed post vampirism.
-->'''Zeppelli''': "Bastard...How many lives have you devoured to heal those wounds?"
-->'''Dio''': "Do you remember every piece of bread you've ever eaten?"



* AnIcePerson: One of the vampiric abilities he demonstrated in Part 1 was to snap-freeze parts of his body, which, in turn, would drain heat from, and freeze, the bodies of any who came into physical contact with him. This proves to be effect against not only close-range attacks, but Hamon as well: frozen blood can't carry oxygen throughout the body as effectively, and thus, considerably weakens his victim's Hamon.
* TheAntichrist: Very much so; he was evil from birth, [[TeensAreMonsters was a sociopathic teen]], and even gets vampiric LegionsOfHell once he vampirizes.

* AnIcePerson: In Part 1, he demonstrates the ability to freeze limbs solid through the use of really exaggerated [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evaporative_cooler#Physical_principles evaporative cooling]]. He replaces it with [[spoiler:the power to stop time]].
* IconicOutfit: His Part 1 outfit consists an ornate shirt and breeches, a large pair of boots, vambraces, and two suspenders attached to a band around his waist. The anime version of this outfit made it look like his legs were ''much'' bigger than they actually were.
** Part 3 had him wear a suit colored yellow. He wears a jacket with a backless tank-top underneath. He now also wears a heart-shaped circlet, and rings for his cuffs. His pants are held up... somehow, and also wears... elfboots. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer No, really]]. And he's still the most terrifying villain of the [=JoJo=] franchise.



* {{Irony}}: If Dio hadn't become a vampire, the [=JoJos=] wouldn't have gained the strength to fight future enemies like the Pillar Men and Stand Users, as Jonathan would've remained a normal man having normal descendants.

** Dio is quite the {{Badass}} but for all of his power he is almost always relying on the Joestar family for really, everything. To elaborate; he needed George's money and wealth for his own greed, [[spoiler: needed George's stone mask in order to become a vampire]], [[spoiler: needed Jonathan's body after he was reduced to a head]], [[spoiler: needed Joseph's blood to work better with Jonathan's body]], and [[spoiler: he relies on Jonathan's Hermit Purple #2]].

* DarkMessiah: A few of the part 3 hirelings, such as Enya and N'Dour, see him as at least akin to this [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk despite not caring for them in the slightest if they fail and treat them favorably if they succeed if only to have further use for them]]. [[OnlyFriend Pucci is possibly the only exception]]. As N'Dour put it, "even the bad guys...need a savior."

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the 2012 anime Jonathan is given [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]] as oppose to the brown hair he and the rest of his family has in the manga. Most likely this was in order to physically differentiate Johnathan from his IdenticalGrandson Joseph.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Speedwagon dedicated his life and beyond to helping the Joestars in Jonathan's memory, and it's noted that he never married. Joseph wonders in-universe if it's because Speedwagon is harboring feelings of his own for Erina, but the manga doesn't offer any further details on that front, and right before that he wonders about Speedwagon and Jonathan's own closeness.
