! Jonathan "Johnny" Joestar (Stand: Tusk)
[[quoteleft:245:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/johnny_joestar.png]]
-> Voiced by: YuukiKaji (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven''), Creator/TakahiroMizushima (radio drama)

A young horse racing prodigy, Johnny's heyday as a horse jockey came to an abrupt end when a public incident left him paraplegic. He meets Gyro Zepelli before the Steel Ball Run begins and finds himself captivated by his steel ball ability. After fighting for Gyro's attention, the two team up for the race.

He's known for his cynical, self-centered, critical and fairly mean-spirited behavior. Despite this, he's a solid JerkassWoobie due to his terrible upbringing and self-esteem issues, and much of the story is about him growing out of this behavior to become a much nicer, self-sacrificing person. His stand is Tusk, which allows him to fire his fingernails as bullets. [[spoiler: Tusk has acts, much like Echoes from Part 4, and levels up as Johnny masters the spin. Act 2 allows him to move the bulletholes left by the nails, like dragging them along the surface. In Act 3, Johnny shoots ''himself'' to send the spin onto himself, allowing him to move through his holes and shoot from multiple angles. Act 4 allows Johnny to shoot a nail bullet with ''infinite spin'', meaning he gains the power of infinity against his opponent and can completely incapacitate them, along with destroying Valentine's infinite dimension-hopping powers by applying the spin to him, as it follows Valentine across multiple universes.]]
-----
* AbnormalAmmo: He shoots his nails.
* AntiHero: Johnny's the most ambiguously heroic of the Joestars for a number of reasons.
** ClassicalAntiHero: The neglect and contempt shown by his father, and [[BreakTheHaughty the events that led up to him getting paralyzed]], turned him into a bitter shadow of his former self, with deep-seated self-esteem issues. In fact, the reason he seeks to [[spoiler:acquire the Corpse Parts]] is so that a "useless person" like him could have a purpose for living.
** UnscrupulousHero: On top of that, Johnny is not really heroic. He just wanted the Corpse and is not particularly nice. To have the Corpse he'll do everything even if he must kill someone. He even proposed to Gyro to shoot a [[WouldHurtAChild child]] with a serious face. He does mellow down over the course of the story, but still.
** This is deconstructed when he admits that in a way, his goals are pettier than Valentine's [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned but insane scheme]], causing him to nearly side with the BigBad. The only reason he doesn't do so is because he's smart enough to test if Valentine was going to double cross him, and not because he had any sudden moral objections.
* [[spoiler:AnyoneCanDie: Bites it, 10 years after the events of SBR.]]
* AwesomeMcCoolName: Joestar.
** JohnnyMcCoolname: His nickname.
* {{Bishonen}}
* BreakTheHaughty: He wound up paralyzed, simply because he thought he was too rich and famous to wait in line.
* BrickJoke: Even in an alternate universe, [[spoiler:Dio manages to overshadow Jonathan in the eyes of his father...]]
* ByronicHero: See Contrasting Reboot Character below for more details.
* CharacterDevelopment: The whole story of SBR is basically about it. Over the course of the story, Johnny finds that there's more to life beyond the walls he had built around himself.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Other than similarities in their backstories, Johnny neither looks nor acts like Jonathan, in any way. Jonathan was a kind, idealistic, unselfish, and generous musclebound mountain of a man; Johnny is a cruel, cynical, self-centered, and petty scrawny kid (though partly justified by the atrophy caused by his disability). In other words, Jonathan was the IdealHero with scarcely any flaws, while Johnny is a very flawed ByronicHero with few redeeming qualities.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Comes off as whiny, incompetent, and overly reliant on Gyro. In-battle, however, it becomes clear that he can hold his own. This is especially apparent when [[spoiler:his "Dark Will" comes out]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Out of all of the [=JoJos=] that have appeared, Johnny's definitely the snarkiest of them all. He likes to reply with sarcastic remarks, particularly when it comes to Gyro and his indecipherable jokes and weird songs.
-->'''Gyro''': ~Pizza Mozzarella... Pizza Mozzarella... Rella Rella Rella~ What do you think?\\
'''Johnny''': Gyro... That's a damn good song.\\
'''Gyro''': Really?!\\
'''Johnny''': Ah... Oh man. It's great! It's awesome! This is insane! It's get stuck in your head so easily! Especially the "rella rella" part.. Its like... a masterpiece! I can't get it out of my mind! it'll definitely be a hit back in [[spoiler:Europe.]]
** He's also the only character to compliment Josuke's hair in ''All Star Battle''. The taunt is in the snark.
* Decoy Protagonist: Flip flopped, due to his namesake, readers may assume Johnny is the protagonist of the story. But according to Word of God, Gyro was originally written in the early parts of Steel Ball Run to be the protagonist. However, midway through the story Johnny starts to take more and more of a traditional protagonist role.
* {{Determinator}}: Getting his shit kicked out of him by a horse and having a piece of wood lodged in his leg will not stop this guy from learning the secret of [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Gyro's steel balls]], and later on, absolutely ''nothing'' will get between him and the corpse parts.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: [[spoiler:Jonathan Joestar, but he started calling himself "Johnny" after people started calling him "[=JoJo=]".]]
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: [[spoiler:Once he figures out the Golden Ratio, his nail bullets become incredibly powerful weapons which create movable rifts that seek out the target's vitals and destroy them.]]
* {{Expy}}: He doesn't have much in common with Jonathan at first, but then you find out his full backstory...
** It's more subtle, but he also takes [[CompositeCharacter some elements]] from Battle Tendency Joseph's personality as well. He used to be a [[TheCasanova Casanova]] {{Jerkass}} with a serious arrogant streak before LaserGuidedKarma struck, and towards the end, he also [[spoiler: [[AnArmAndALeg loses an arm]] soon after Gyro reveals his true name, although this time he gets better]].
* EyesNeverLie: [[spoiler:He sees no problem with killing an opponent if he thinks it's necessary. Gyro can tell just by looking at his eyes -- Johnny's killing intent is depicted as smoldering black flames in his pupils]].
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity: He calmly accepts his fate after Diego from an alternate universe hits him with his own infinite rotation. Subverted in that he does get better in the end.]]
* {{Fetish}}: He has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formicophilia formicophilia]].
* FingerGun: A more serious example than usual. He sometimes poses like this to aim Tusk.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Very early on in the arc, Gyro mentions to Johnny that mosquito bites are the number one causes of death. As we approach the climax, we find out about his little fetish...
** [[spoiler:And ultimately, Gyro dies from dozens of small wounds from [=D4C's=] ability, resembling mosquito bites.]]
* FriendshipMoment: [[HoYay A lot with Gyro]], but the most touching scene is the one where [[spoiler:he gave the corpse to the enemy in order to save him.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He gets a scar, after [[spoiler:he got shot]].
* GreenLanternRing: [[spoiler:The Golden Ratio also allowed him to use the rifts created by his nails to transport parts or all of him to other places.]]
* HandicappedBadass: Not being able to use the legs doesn't stop him from kicking ass, as well as participating in a country spanning horse race.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: How dangerous are his [[ItMakesSenseInContext spinning fingernail bullets?]] ''Very''.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: Johnny sacrifices himself to save his son, when using the corpse's power to save his wife backfires horribly.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: He literally thinks of himself as "less than zero".
* HotBlooded: He is a ''[=JoJo=]''. Tons of screaming and aggressive forcefulness is to be expected from him.
* ImplacableMan: The higher evolutions of Tusk turn him (and his nail bullets) into this. Not even hiding behind cover, deflecting his attacks, or [[spoiler:stopping time]] can protect you for very long.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He shoots his fingernails like bullets. Even for [=JoJo=], that's pretty over the top.
* InSeriesNickName: [=JoJo=].
* JohnnyMcCoolName: Johnny Joestar, although "Johnny" is a nickname he gave himself.
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: In [=JoJolion=], he stole the corpse that was supposed to have been sealed at the end of Part 7 in order to cure his wife from the unknown disease. Since the "curing" works on the EquivalentExchange basis, and not wanting to get the disease himself, Johnny really begs that some stranger will get it instead. That "stranger" turns out be his son George. In grief, Johnny repeats the procedure, now getting the disease himself, with fatal results. [=JoJolion=] calls this "Johnny Joestar's Sin".]]
* LetsGetDangerous: Deconstructed and subverted with his [[spoiler:Dark Will. When Johnny has his mind set on killing someone, that's ''all he's focused on''. He puts no other thoughts into his actions in this state, something easily exploited by his enemies.]]
* MundaneUtility: After Johnny first masters the Golden Ratio, and learns to [[spoiler:create rotational force around his finger]], he quickly finds innocuous functions, like grating cheese, wrapping spaghetti, and ''brushing his teeth''. It even makes Gyro jealous.
* NiceHat: His odd horseshoe-bandanna combo. [=JoJolion=] implies that at some point he traded it for a tasseled sailor's cap resembling Josuke's.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Of Axl Rose.
* ParentalNeglect: His father focused most, if not all, of his attention on Johnny's brother, Nicholas, who was even more skilled in horse racing.
* PerpetualFrowner: In twenty-four volumes, Johnny smiles only twice, that's even less than Jotaro who's a notorious PerpetualFrowner himself.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: When his father finally apologizes to him for all those years of neglect]].
* PhenotypeStereotype: To show how American he is, he wears a horseshoe hat, and star-patterned blue pants, and arm-warmers with the American Flag design on them. He replaces the hat for a Pork-pie hat with a star-patterned hem and gets rid of the original arm-warmers for some white ones.
* TheProtagonist
* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:He regains his ability to walk in the end, but it's a slow and gradual recovery; not a single, climactic, miraculous, and perfectly timed moment.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red Oni to Gyro's blue, at the beginning. Interestingly, the roles are reversed as the story goes on.
* SayMyName: ''GYROOOOOOOOOOO!!''
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In Japanese, even! In the first chapter his name is spelled ジョニー, but afterward it's ジョニィ.
* [[spoiler:SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: A flashback in [=JoJolion=] reveals that Johnny was killed in Japan ten years after the events of Steel Ball Run.]]
* SymbolMotifClothing: Stars are everywhere in his design, to show that he is a Joestar and an American.
* TookALevelInBadass: His stand, Tusk, keeps evolving as he learns to use the Golden Ratio in battle.
* TranquilFury: [[spoiler:When his "Dark Determination" kicks in, he barely speaks; this means that he ''really'' wants to kill you.]]
* TheUnfavorite: To his father.
* [[spoiler:VictoriousLoser: Not only did he NOT win Steel Ball Run, he was disqualified in the last 1000 meters. Yet, the sight of his father cheering him on with pride as he thundered past Broadway, and the thoughts of the memories of his epic trek with Gyro was more than enough. Johnny may have lost the race, but he won something far more precious; a true friend and his father's love.]]
* WellDoneSonGuy

! [[spoiler:Iulius Caesar]] "Gyro" Zeppeli (Stand: Scan / [[spoiler:Ball Breaker]])
[[quoteleft:251:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gyro_zeppeli.png]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/ShinichiroMiki (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven''), Creator/KenjiHamada (radio drama)

A mysterious racer who suddenly shows up in the U.S. for the Steel Ball Run. He ends up catching the eye of many people, good and bad, due to his unique ability to manipulate steel balls. He eventually acts as a sort of partner and mentor to Johnny after the race begins.

Gyro is fun loving, kind and intelligent, though this belies a ruthless and pragmatic heart that is able to think quick on his feet. He quickly bonds with Johnny. Gyro uses the ''Spin'', a kind of centrifugal force that has the power of infinity if used correctly, and can be considered a sort of counterpart to the Ripple. Gyro's stand is Scan, which allows him to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin scan the horizon for things of interest.]] [[spoiler: When he masters the spin, he gains Ball Breaker, which allows him to accelerate the energy of an object if he hits it with the spin, i.e accelerating a persons cells to the point where they rapidly age.]]

[[spoiler:Gyro hails from Naples and comes from a family line of executioners. After questioning the morality of the job when an innocent boy, Marco, is convicted of treason for failing to report his employers' conspiracy against the king, he sets out to enter the Steel Ball Run and land first place to curry the king's favor and earn amnesty for Marco, who is awaiting execution.]]
-----
* EightiesHair: He had a mullet when he was a kid.
* AnyoneCanDie: [[spoiler:No character named Zeppeli has ever reached the end of their given part alive.]]
* BadassBeard
* BadassNormal: He does not need a Stand to fight.
* BarbarianLongHair: Has a wild untamed mane, and being a physical fighter, has the right to claim it.
* BigBrotherMentor: To Johnny.
* {{Biseinen}}
* BloodFromTheMouth
* BroughtDownToBadass: After he willingly [[spoiler:gave "Scan" away by handing the corpse part over to Lucy Steel.]]
* CatchPhrase: Nyohoho!
* CloudCuckoolander: Gyro has a couple of quirky moments in ''Steel Ball Run'', his weird cheese song being one of the most notable.
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: [[spoiler:What killed him? Tiny scratches that by way of [=D4C=]'s secondary ability traveled to his heart, thus dying of internal hemorrhage.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: He shares an equal amount of page-time with Johnny in the first 21 volumes, but [[spoiler:following his defeat and subsequent death at [[BigBad Valentine]]'s hands]], he loses TheProtagonist role to Johnny, who is left to defeat the villain by himself.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: He has balls of steel.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Gyro is a [[spoiler:professional assassin]] with a huge pragmatic streak, but even he gets disturbed by how ruthless Johnny can be.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: The basis for the steel balls' power is their rotation. Based on the Golden Ratio, no less.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: His actual given name is [[spoiler:Iulius Caesar, the Latin form of "Julius Caesar".]]
* {{Expy}}: He's a CompositeCharacter who fulfills the older and wiser mentor role of Part 1's William, as well as the best friend role and [[spoiler: namesake]] of Part 2's Caesar. Likewise, his motive for freeing Marco calls to mind Mark from Battle Tendency as well.
* FriendshipMoment: With Johnny.
* GenerationXerox: [[spoiler:Like the other Zeppeli who have appeared in the series, he doesn't survive.]]
* TheHero: Johnny is the protagonist but Gyro is more heroic.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:'Tis the inevitable fate of the Zeppeli bloodline...]]
* TheLastDance
* MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext: All of his jokes, which even Johnny finds to be indecipherable.
--> Pizza mozzarella pizza mozzarella rella rella rella
* MeaningfulName: His nickname, Gyro, which means "revolve" in many romance languages, such as in "gyroscope" and "gyration". [[spoiler:His real name, Iulius Caesar, has the obvious meaning... but it also connects him to Caesar from Part 2, another co-protagonist who started out stronger than the main character before being killed.]]
* MentorOccupationalHazard: [[spoiler:Lesson 5...]]
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: [[spoiler:Named after Julius Caesar, much to his embarrassment.]] Unusual in that Gyro's case is the ''only'' time such a connection is acknowledged in the text.
* NiceHat: Cut to resemble a cyclist helmet. Also, there's a pair of goggles which, instead of lenses, just has a few holes cut kinda like Kanye West venetian sunglasses.
* MortalWoundReveal
* NonindicativeName: Minor, the chapter 'The Desert-Born Outlaws' shows us his steel balls are actually made of iron. Presumbly it's the shape that allows him to conduct the Spin through them, since every iteration of the "steel balls" that he makes after losing or destroying a pair of them bear the same design on their surface.
* ReallyDeadMontage: [[spoiler:He gets one.]]
* RealMenWearPink: When packing for the race, he decided a comic book and a teddy bear took priority over toilet paper, scissors, and a tooth brush plus tooth powder.
* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler:The kid he ran the race to save does get saved by Johnny in the end, but dies just a few years later from a fever.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In the French official translation, "Gyro" becomes "Jayro". It becomes "J Lo" in Italy, but that's pronounced the same way.
** NoPronunciationGuide: In Italian his name is pronounced 'Yee-ro', but in both [[VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle All Star Battle]] and the radio drama it's pronounced 'Ji-ro'.
* {{Technobabble}}: For those who aren't science or arithmetic buffs, the way his steel balls work will require some very serious research and at least one re-reading.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Eventually gains "Ball Breaker", a second stand.]]

! Lucy Steel (''née'' Pendelton) [[spoiler:(Stand: Ticket to Ride)]]
[[quoteleft:243:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lucy_steel.png]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/HoukoKuwashima (''All-Star Battle'')

The much younger wife of Stephen Steel, unwittingly dragged into the world of the Steel Ball Run and [[spoiler:the Holy Corpse.]] Though living in constant danger of the wrath of the president, and overwhelmed by the gravity of the situation she is in, for the sake of her husband's safety, she opposes Valentine behind the scenes.
-----
* ArtisticAge: She's pretty tall and... well-developed for a 14 year-old.
* BadassAdorable
* BrickJoke: [[spoiler:How she defeats Alternate Universe Diego Brando. She brings the original Diego's head close to him, which, because of how the same people from alternate universes die by being forcibly fused together, causes his head to explode into a bloody mess]].
* CallBack: She has the same maiden name as Erina from Parts 1 and 2.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Sometimes she looks her age (at the beginning and at the near end), sometimes she [[YoungerThanTheyLook doesn't.]]
* {{Determinator}}
* GuileHero: She has no supernatural abilities whatsoever, so she has to rely on her wits to survive.
* TheHeart
* IntergenerationalFriendship: [[spoiler:With Stephen Steel. It's far stronger than any normal friendship, though it doesn't necessarily qualify as "love".]]
* MsFanservice: So much so that [[Main/EvenTheGirlsWantHer the President's wife took an interest in her.]]
* PregnantBadass [[spoiler:When the Holy Corpse took residence in her womb to mature into a complete form again.]]
* SelectiveGravity: [[spoiler:Subconsciously, during the second stage of being the host]].
* SilkHidingSteel: Pun aside, the fact that this young lady is willing and able to stand to the occasion in spite of being terrified out of her wits makes her as brave as any hero.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Ever notice how alternate Diego never got to seal the corpse in the vault before he died? When Stephen gets there, the door is already closed, and it is heavily implied that Lucy herself closed the vault. As it was built so that only the person who closed the vault could open it, this sets the stage for Johnny to take the Corpse from said vault to Japan many years later.]]
* TearsOfFear: Sheds these during her closer encounters with Valentine and his subordinates.
* TookALevelInBadass: Several by Book 24, enough to [[spoiler:kill Diego Brando, who has The World as his stand]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: She's actually 14, but she looks about four, five, or maybe even six years older than that. She's rather tall, pretty curvy, and is fetishized a lot more than many other 14-year-olds are. [[spoiler:Valentine spent a few chapters trying to catch her and rape her.]]

! Stephen Steel
[[quoteleft:196:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/steven_steel.png]]
->Voiced by: Mitsuru Ogata (radio drama and ''All-Star Battle'')

A one-time explorer and adventurer, who's gained and lost several fortunes. The MC and creator of the Steel Ball Run, though he doesn't realize what the President actually wants it for.
-----
* AnimeHair: His hair looks less like hair and more like a broken eggshell, just like [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart6 Foo Fighters'.]]
* TheCameo: He runs the Campaign mode in ''All-Star Battle''. And is ''extremely'' enthusiastic about it.
* CoolOldGuy
* {{Expy}}: Of the older Speedwagon from part 2.
* {{Gonk}}: It's the hair, which is cartoonishly simple compared to his otherwise realistic face, that makes him look so out of place.
* IWasQuiteALooker: An early chapter reveals he was more handsome in his youth.
* {{Lolicon}}: How his marriage to Lucy makes him look.
** IntergenerationalFriendship: [[spoiler:The true nature of their relationship, and it's stronger than many actual romantic marriages.]]
* UglyGuyHotWife: Due to his age, it looks like this. [[spoiler:[[IntergenerationalFriendship It's not]]]].

! Mountain Tim (Stand: Oh! Lonesome Me)
[[quoteleft:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mountain_tim.png]]

-----
* BackForTheDead: [[spoiler:It looked like he was killed off by Oyecomova's Stand, only to turn out to be OK... only to be killed by Blackmore.]]
* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler:Shot in the head by Blackmore.]]
* DecoyProtagonist: Early arcs and covers after his debut set him up to round out a PowerTrio with Johnny and Gyro, recreating part 1's Joestar-Zeppeli-Speedwagon cast, and it's with his help that they're first clued into the true plot and intrigue behind the titular race. Instead, he leaves them be shortly after, and Steel Ball Run remained a BuddyPicture with frequent [[GuestStarPartyMember temporary companions]].
* DefiantToTheEnd:[[spoiler:refuses to give the identity of Lucy to Blackmore, resulting in his death.]]
* {{Expy}}: His scar, long hair ,and hat makes him look a bit like Speedwagon. He's also firmly good-aligned and has a one-sided crush on Lucy.
** His NiceHat and cowboy trappings also call Hol Horse's design to mind, though thankfully not his personality.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Towards Lucy Steel.
* MadeOfPlasticine: His Stand allows him to break his body up into pieces without harm as long as they stay connected to his rope. [[BodyHorror Not that it looks all that nice if you look at the part of his body the segments were originally attached to.]]
* NiceHat: A zebra-patterned cowboy hat.
* ScarsAreForever

! Hot Pants (Stand: Cream Starter)
[[quoteleft:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hot_pants.png]]

-----
* {{Bifauxnen}}
* {{Bokukko}}: Tended to use Japanese male pronouns to keep up her SweetPollyOliver facade. After the reveal, she started to use gender-neutral pronouns instead.
* ChurchMilitant
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:The death of her brother, for which she's partially responsible]].
* DroppedABridgeOnHer: [[spoiler:During the fight against Valentine, she becomes a victim of his new ability thanks to Love Train. However, because of how fast it happens and how nobody really pays attention to it much after, lots of fans tend to forget this fact, likening it to a similar incident earlier on in which she was in danger, yet somehow escaped off screen.]]
* EnemyMine: She double teams Valentine with the help of [[spoiler:Diego Brando.]] Yes, really.
* SwissArmySuperpower: Cream Starter is incredibly versatile for a Stand based around spraying flesh.
** BodyHorror: Naturally. Also one of Hot Pants' favorite kill tactics, sealing the target's mouth and nose shut to stop them from breathing.
** DetachmentCombat: She can use it to separate parts of her body from herself.
** GoodThingYouCanHeal: Comes in handy when the heroes need to get patched up after a battle.
** MasterOfDisguise: It can flawlessly immitate a person's appearance, up to changing someone's voice to create an even better disguise.
* SweetPollyOliver: Convincingly passed as a guy to the point where [[LadyLooksLikeADude the viewer might actually think she's one at first]].

! Sandman/[[spoiler:Soundman]] (Stand: In a Silent Way)
[[quoteleft:216:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sandman.png]]

An American Indian, a black sheep of his tribe, who enters the Steel Ball Run to secure his tribe's land. The first character we meet in Part 7.
-----
* AntiVillain
* BadassNative
* BadassNormal: In a race involving horses, he's the only one to run completely barefoot, yet he's almost always in the top running.
* BraidsBeadsAndBuckSkins
* {{Expy}}: To Part 4's Koichi Hirose, since both Echoes and In A Silent Way involve manipulating sounds [[spoiler: and can manifest those sounds as active effects in the case of Echoes Act 2]]
* HorseOfADifferentColor: Sort of; he ''runs barefoot'' in a horse race.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:The first victim of Tusk Act 2.]]
* MakeMeWannaShout: His Stand allows him to manipulate sound.
* MagicalNativeAmerican: By way of his Stand.
* {{Mondegreen}}[=/=]IAmNotShazam: His name is not Sandman, it's actually [[spoiler:Soundman. Though people continue to refer to him as "Sandman" after the reveal]].
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: The (non-canon)''Jorge Joestar'' novel gives his full name as Goyathlee [[spoiler:Soundman]], after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geronimo Goyathlay]].
* NobleSavage: Sandman is a MagicalNativeAmerican who participates in the Steel Ball Run to get the necessary money for his tribe to legally own their land. He is reasonably nice, and honorable enough to help contestants in need. [[spoiler: Even then he decides being a PunchClockVillain to Valentine is a better option to help his tribe than the race.]]
* NeutralNoLonger: [[spoiler:Although he appears at the very beginning of part 7 as a sympathetic character, and even seems like he may become an ally of Johnny and Gyro, his dedication to saving his homeland and people ultimately aligns him with Valentine.]]
* TragicVillain
* WeaponsGradeVocabulary: His Stand can create the sound effect ''kana'' that, when touched, induces the related effect, i.e. "burning", "cutting", or "stabbing".

! Pocoloco (Stand: Hey Ya!)
[[quoteleft:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pocoloco.png]]
->Voiced by: YasuhikoKawazu (''All-Star Battle''), Fumihiro Okabayashi (radio drama)

The son of a former slave, disinclined to hard work. His Stand, Hey Ya!, gives him seemingly nonsensical advice that always turns out in his favor.
-----
* BoringInvincibleHero: Arguably a ShadowArchetype for Gyro and Johnny. While all three seek to win the race (and Johnny's main goal isn't so much the money as figuring out Gyro's spin secrets), Pocoloco's absurd luck means the race has no personal meaning to him, and he never grows as a person because of his complacent dependence on his power. So while he may have [[spoiler:won the race and the money]], it pales in comparison to Gyro and Johnny's struggles and personal growth, represented by their greater cause to stop Funny Valentine from obtaining the whole Corpse.
* BornLucky: The effect of his Stand.
* TheCameo: An ''extremely'' rare post-match effect in ''All-Star Battle'' Campaign mode, he shares his "pot of luck", completely refilling your energy.
* TheFool: The man's a dimwit, and yet he is blessed with ''crazy'' luck.
* HumbleGoal: He's after the prize money so that he can afford to just watch the clouds, and so his father doesn't have to be a sharecropper anymore.
* MeaningfulName: The (non-canon) ''Jorge Joestar'' novel gives his full name as Pocoloco ''Tripleseven'', emphasizing his ridiculous luck.
* MistakenForBadass: Despite being a complete dolt, thanks to his amazing luck, he is commonly mistaken as a racing genius [[ObfuscatingStupidity who only looks like a moron at first glance.]]
* NiceGuy: An easygoing and humble guy who just wants to relax and watch the clouds. [[spoiler: This helps take the edge off the audience when he ends up winning the Steel Ball Run.]]
* RagsToRiches

! Sugar Mountain
[[quoteleft:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sugar_mountain.png]]
A young woman who is the representative of a Stand-possessing Tree, which has the Stand named Sugar Mountain's Spring.
-----
* ElegantGothicLolita: She even quotes ''{{Literature/Lolita}}'' at one point.
* HonestAxe: Anytime something gets dropped into the spring, she is compelled to offer the actual object or something more extravagant. If you're honest, she'll give you both. Gyro figures out her game [[spoiler:and drops rabbit ears into the spring, earning him and Johnny the corpse ears]]. The catch is that [[spoiler:if you don't use all of the items you earned by sundown, your soul will be trapped in the tree by the spring]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:She's around 66, although she was trapped by the Tree for about 50 years]].

! Norisuke Higashikata
[[quoteleft:241:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/norisuke_higashikata.png]]

An old Japanese man famous for being "the man with two navels", who enters the Steel Ball Run. May or may not be the ancestor of Part 8's Higashikata family.
-----
* BaldOfAwesome
* CoolOldGuy: Anyone who survives, let alone wins even a single stage in the Steel Ball Run at the age of ''68'' more than qualifies. It also helps that he has [[CrazyAwesome two navels.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:His two navels foreshadow the next arc]].
* RedHerring: During the confrontation with the Stand "In A Silent Way", Johnny (and by extension, the reader) presumed that he was the user. [[spoiler:No less than three pages later, we find out it's actually Soundman.]]

* BlackGuyDiesFirst: He might not have died, but he's the first to be "eliminated" from the race.
* {{Expy}}: Of Mohammad Avdol, though Avdol was far less of a dick.
* HorseOfADifferentColor: He enters the race riding a ''camel''.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Slams his camel into any horse that gets close, hoping to drive their riders out of the race. He thus brings it on himself when Gyro lures him into a patch of cacti.
* NiceHat: He wears a turban.

* BiTheWay: She thinks that Lucy is ''really'' cute, and is more than willing to have sex with her.
** DepravedBisexual: Lucy drugs her and sneaks into Valentine's room to steal his corpse part. Scarlet wakes up and ambushes her, furious that Lucy had just pretended to like her to get to Valentine.
* TheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Even though she's more than willing to cheat on her husband with another woman, she genuinely loves Valentine, and sees him as a kind and compassionate soul.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Killed by Mike O.'s stand, as his balloon dogs had caught wind of 'Scarlet's' (actually Lucy in disguise thanks to Hot Pants) scent and tracked down and killed her.

* TookALevelInJerkass: While the original universe Dario was a drunk and [[AbusiveParents an abusive father]] that led Dio to evil, he still ultimately cared for his welfare. Here, he's an unrepentant {{Jerkass}} who throws Diego into the river in hopes he'll die to not have another mouth to feed.

! Funny Valentine (Stand: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap[[note]]Shortened to "[=D4C=]"[[/note]])
[[quoteleft:236:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/funny_valentine_7.png]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/YasuyukiKase (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven'')

The President of the United States ([[AlternateHistory of Valentine]]...). The mastermind behind the Steel Ball Run; the race actually stops along the locations of the corpse pieces, which he intends to take for himself.

His Stand is Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, sometimes just shorted to [=D4C=], which allows him to [[spoiler:interact with alternate universes]].
-----
* AgentPeacock: His style.
* AnimalMotif: Rabbit, as the UpTheRealRabbitHole, white color scheme, ability to multiply himself to large numbers, and upward-pointed horns of his Stand implies.
* AnimeHair: How does his hair manage to stay that curly?
* AntiVillain: Arguably the most sympathetic BigBad so far, being driven by his [[FreudianExcuse desire to protect his country at all costs.]]
* AcheyScars: [[spoiler:During his time as a soldier, he was tortured and left with scars resembling the Stars and Stripes on his back. He claims they usually ache, but stop doing so during the race, which he takes as a sign]].
* AffablyEvil: Charismatic, dignified, and polite at all times.
* AlternateUniverse: [[spoiler:Manages to actually weaponize dimensional hopping]].
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:One of [=D4C=]'s abilities.]] [[ImmortalLifeisCheap He uses it a lot more often than one would expect.]]
* BadassLongcoat
* BigBad: Of Part 7, although at first, he's more sympathetic than most of the previous Big Bads. Valentine's clever use of his stand, and sheer determination that rivals even the main duo's, make him a deadly adversary.
* BigBeautifulMan: Even before [[spoiler:he became a well-toned hunk]], Valentine looked quite attractive, thanks to the nature of Araki's artstyle.
** {{Biseinen}}: Would you believe he's pushing 50?
* CampStraight: With an AgentPeacock style.
* {{Catchphrase}}: [[http://youtu.be/rsVgXCMIYec Dojya~~~n]]!
* TheCharmer: Valentine is president of the United States for a reason; he's incredibly charismatic and many of his followers believe him for his rhetoric alone. Interestingly enough he was able to convince Johnny to forgive him for killing Gyro and all of his other actions; and would have probably found an ally in him had Valentine not hidden a gun behind his back. During the epilogue his approval rating was around 91%.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He demonstrates the best way to drink out of a can by piercing its bottom and drinking from there. He can also play the mandolin ''with his feet.''
* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: Takes Pucci's KnightTemplar tendencies fueled with a FreudianExcuse to the extremes, to the point where he skews towards AntiVillain territory. Also compared to most [=JoJo=] villains, Funny Valentine may be the most dignified and honorable of the lot, being a man of his word, always calm under pressure, and wanting to do what's best for America, even if it has to be over the corpses of others. He is still no less ruthless and amoral than the other villains.
* TheCynic: More or less sums up his motivations. Since he sees life as a zero-sum game where there is a set amount of "fortune" and "misfortune" to be distributed amongst the whole of humanity, he wishes to give his country as much "fortune" as possible while pushing away all the "misfortune", even if it means dooming non-Americans to more suffering.
* DubNameChange: In the simplest way possible -- [=D4C=] is never called by its full name in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''. There are, however, cheeky references to no one knowing what [=D4C=] stands for, or the statement that Valentine will do anything "for a fair and honest price"... but you can ''hear'' him saying "Dirty deeds done dirt-cheap" in GratuitousEnglish. Surprisingly, his "Love Train" ability is still called that.
* EagleLand: An interesting mix of type 1 and 2. On the one hand, he's a dignified man who works hard for the good of his country, treats his underlings and enemies with respect, yet still possesses a quirky and buffoonish side to him that makes him likable on a personal level. On the other hand, his patriotism perhaps goes too far, as he's willing to bring suffering to the entire world if it means more happiness for America. He's also very self-righteous, ruthless in his methods, and the fairly rapey vibes he gives off towards Lucy might paint him in a darker light.
* EvilVirtues: Ambition, Determination, Diligence and Resourcefulness.
* FamilyThemeNaming: The (non-canon) ''Jorge Joestar'' novel introduces two relatives of his named Funnier and The Funniest.
* FatBastard: At first, but at some point he gets a FanservicePack involving a rugged jaw and a chiseled body. [[spoiler:He may have switched himself with a sexier version from an alternate universe, as it's implied he has done so several times before, and may have been using Fat!Valentine as cover.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: To [=D4C=] and its powers - notice that in the first few chapters, Funny Valentine is surrounded by people who look exactly like him, save for one or two features (like height or facial hair). [[spoiler:Notice also that they never touch him.]]
* FreudianExcuse: His father died in battle for America's stability, leading him to do the same.
* FourIsDeath: The name of his stand is shortened to D'''4'''C.
** Also, the C is pronounced as ''shi'', making it a bilingual deathly pun.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He secretly tries to bring a gun from an alternate dimension in order to kill Johnny . Unfortunately for him, Johnny tosses the gun from the main dimension to him, which merges with the alternate one and exposes Valentine's treachery.
* HopeSpot: When he discovered [=D4C=]'s powers, he thought it would give him a chance to visit an alternate version of his father who survived the war so he could see him one last time. [[spoiler:Tragically, his father's death is one of the constants throughout all the the parallel realities.]]
* IGaveMyWord: He promises Lucy Steel that he'll save the life of her husband, Stephen, and holds to it even after [[SpannerInTheWorks Stephen interferes with his plan]]. But even if he ensures Stephen doesn't die, he'll [[FateWorseThanDeath punish him with pain]].
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[spoiler:Literally. I.e, he weaponizes the ''abstract concept of improbability and karma to fight the heroes.'']]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:''Weaponized.'' When Valentine stands in the dimensional gap created by the Corpse, any attack against him will be reflected on somebody else in the world in the form of KarmicDeath.]]
* LightIsNotGood: Not only is he a blonde and [[ManInWhite wearing white clothes]], but his stand is also white in color.
* ManInWhite: His clothes.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:On the verge of being defeated, Valentine puts off a RousingSpeech at Johnny, mixed with FreudianExcuse and MotiveRant, at least convincing him that Valentine had the moral upper ground, and almost convincing him that he would spare the latter.]][[spoiler: Almost.]]
* MesACrowd: [[spoiler:At one point, Valentine along with two other alternate dimension copies attack Diego Brando. [[CurbstompBattle They lost]].]]
* MrFanservice: He's attractive and shows it.
* MundaneUtility: It's implied that he's used his Stands to walk without the sound of footsteps.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: [[spoiler:If more than one iteration of a person or object exist in the same universe, their presence will end up annihilating both. [=D4C=]'s power protects Valentine himself from this effect, but he weaponizes it against others.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Johnny [[spoiler:eventually dies doing what Valentine tried to do with the Corpse Parts; shunting the misfortune of those he cared about onto others.]]
* OverlyLongName: "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" is tied with "Killer Queen Bites the Dust" for the series' longest Stand name so far, which is likely the main reason it's generally called [=D4C=].
* PresidentEvil: Albeit, a more sympathetic one, especially since he's a [=JoJo=] BigBad
* QuickDraw: [[spoiler:How Valentine is finally defeated.]]
* RealMenWearPink: Wears a bright pink longcoat in the colored manga and ''Eyes of Heaven.''
* TheRashomon: A side-effect of [=D4C=]'s abilities.
* SuperpowerLottery: Keeping with [=JoJo=] villain tradition, Valentine hit the jackpot.
** AlternateUniverse: [[spoiler:[[OffScreenTeleportation By closing himself between two objects, he can transport himself to one]].]]
*** WeaponizedTeleportation: [[spoiler:He can also do the same to any other person, and if they meet themselves in the alternate universe, [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet they'll both disintegrate.]]]]
** ImmortalLifeIsCheap: [[spoiler:[=D4C=] can transport [[BrainUploading Valentine's consciousness]] to an [[WeHaveReserves alternate universe body]] if he suffers a mortal wound, then [[BackFromTheDead bring the fresh body back.]]]]
*** MesACrowd: [[spoiler:He can also simply just transport a private army of himselves to attack en masse.]]
** KarmaHoudini / WindsOfDestinyChange: [[spoiler:Weaponized, but only while under the effect of Lucy's "Love Train". When standing inside the dimensional gap, all "misfortune" will pass through him and hit another victim in another part of the world. It also alters the karma of his enemies, by giving him an UnblockableAttack: Even the smallest scratch he gives you on the arm will transform into a small scratch on your vital organs, such as your heart.]]
* TheUnfettered: No act is too amoral for Valentine, if it means certain glory for America.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Becomes a lot more arrogant once [[spoiler:he utilizes Lucy's Love Train effect]] and becomes virtually invincible, believing that he has been marked for greatness by the Holy Corpse.
* UpTheRealRabbitHole: He constantly refers to his original world as the root world. [[spoiler:Justified, since the root world is the only world where the Holy Corpse exists]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Until the story of his father's death "inspired" him.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Averted, which is unusual for a [=JoJo=] villain, especially a BigBad, who all go down screaming at their fate; in fact, after being overwhelmed by Johnny's new power, he quickly re-composes himself by playing to his soft side in order to get a shot at him. And even when that failed, he made sure he'd had an ace by bringing alternate universe Diego Brando in order to get the Corpse.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: The public adores Funny Valentine. Our heroes, and their companions? Not so much.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Valentine's main motivation for obtaining the Corpse is patriotism, as he wants to use the Corpse's [[WindsOfDestinyChange ultimate power]] for the sake of the United States. His main fear, as he explains to Johnny and Dio, is that the corpse falls into the hands of another country's leader.]]
** [[spoiler:Jesus approved of him. Do we need to say more?.]]
* WindsOfDestinyChange: [[spoiler: Valentine weaponizes ''abstract concepts such as luck, karma and probability'' to take down the heroes. It works extremely effectively.]]

! Diego "Dio" Brando (Stand: Scary Monster[[spoiler:/The World]])
[[quoteleft:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diego_brando_4.png]]
->Voiced by: TakehitoKoyasu (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven''), Masayuki Katou (radio drama)

A genius racer from England. After his mother died due to terrible treatment while working in hellish Victorian England, he bitterly vowed to achieve the top place in society. After grabbing a hold of [[spoiler: one of the Corpse's eyes]], he eventually gains Scary Monster as a Stand, which allows him to turn himself and others into dinosaurs.
-----
* TheAce: Everybody recognizes him as a genius jockey. [[spoiler: He not only thoroughly kicks Valentine's ass, he also kicks the asses of several alternate universe Valentines and even his Stand at the same time.]]
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Diego was always recognized as more talented than Johnny, much to George Joestar's chagrin. Throughout the race, Johnny continuously tries to come on top over Dio[[spoiler:, but ultimately fails to ever defeat even him, even with the power that allowed him to defeat Valentine, Tusk ACT 4.]]
* {{Animorphism}}: After he fuses with one of the Turbo Eyes shortly before Dr. Ferdinand's death, he gains the ability to change into a dinosaur at will, thus gaining his own stand. The Ability itself comes from Dr. Ferdinand's Stand "Scary Monsters", thus the derived name.
* AntiVillain: Unlike the main universe one, Diego was portrayed as a sinister yet still tragic figure wanting to have his existence acknowledged; it may be hard to call him a good guy, but his goals and actions eventually line up with the heroic side.
* {{Bishonen}}
* TheBluebeard: Diego is rumored to have murdered his 83 year-old wife for the money.
* ChickMagnet: Girls love him so much they jumped on him '''when he was still racing'''.
* DemotedToDragon: The original Diego was essentially the GreaterScopeVillain of the first universe.
* {{Determinator}}
* DragonAscendant: To Dr. Ferdinand, taking the latter's power for his own [[spoiler:after his demise]] and using it in far more inventive ways than the original user. For example, at one point he transforms two men into dinosaurs to make them obey him, and then he transforms the dinosaurs into ''dinosaur lamps''. [[http://bato.to/read/_/138471/jojos-bizarre-adventure-part-7-steel-ball-run_v97_ch68_by_jojo-project/5 He points out that they won't light up, though.]]
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:He reluctantly teams up with Hot Pants to take down Valentine.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Has the power to invoke this by turning himself and others into dinosaurs.
* EvilBrit: While he is very unfettered in getting his way and implied to have done nasty things to get to where he is, he is far more humane and sympathetic than the original Dio.
* {{Expy}}: Of Dio Brando, albeit slightly less evil, and much more sympathetic. He also looked much like Giorno as a child.
* GlasgowGrin: When he uses Scary Monsters in a more humanoid form.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:How the original Diego dies, as he's cut in half by a train.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Was originally opposed to Gyro and Johnny, and had even teamed up with Valentine, then decides to go against Valentine.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: Even when he (technically) sides with the heroes, it's mostly so that he could have the [[spoiler: Holy Corpse]] all to himself.
* LetThemDieHappy: [[spoiler:The original dies believing he defeated Valentine.]]
* NiceHat: Sports a stunningly fabulous one, with his name literally on it.
* NominalHero: [[spoiler:The first Deigo is in his own league of who to align himself with.]]
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Long-time [=JoJo=] fans might get a bit unnerved when they see Dio Brando ''playfully joke around'' with a Joestar and a Zeppeli.
* PowerIncontinence: At first, he doesn't have the greatest control over his dino shapeshifting.
* TheRival: Johnny's and Gyro's.
* ScaledUp: The power of Scary Monsters.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler: Technically, he did kill Valentine, three times no less, but doing so brought on a new Valentine with a new power.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid: While the Original Dio was an asshole since his birth, Diego turned evil only because of his father.

! [[spoiler: AU Diego "Dio" Brando (Stand: The World)]]

[[spoiler: Funny Valentine eventually uses his Stand to summon another Diego from an alternate universe, who has The World as a Stand to fight his enemies]].
-----

* AlternateUniverse: [[spoiler:He is an alternate Diego is brought into play by Valentine as a backup if he died. This Diego doesn't have Scary Monster as a Stand, but he does have ''[[OhCrap The World]]''.]]
* BrickJoke: [[spoiler:How is defeated by ''Lucy Steel'']].
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: [[spoiler:AU!Diego's version of the World is pretty much the same (in appearance) as the original Dio's, but it has "D"s where the original The World had hearts, and seems to be slimmer (the original The World was as muscular as Star Platinum, maybe even more)]].
* DragonAscendant: [[spoiler:The original was not Valentine's dragon, and in fact eventually opposed him, but this Diego is this to Valentine]].
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: The last enemy after Valentine death]].
* GrievousHarmWithABody: [[spoiler:AU Diego whacks Johnny with his own leg. He also gets killed by Lucy Steel when he uses the head of the original Diego against him.]]
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:AU!Diego shows up with '''''[[TimeStandsStill The World]]''''']]. There's also the fact that [[spoiler:he's just as much of a {{Jerkass}} as the original Dio]].
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: [[spoiler:AU Diego is defeated when Lucy brings him the head of the original Diego, causing the two to explode.]]
* YourHeadASplode: [[spoiler:How AU Diego meets his demise]].

! Mrs. Robinson
[[quoteleft:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrs_robinson.png]]
Don't let the name fool you. This character is actually a ''he'', and is always referred to as such. An outcast from a village after losing a duel and being left to die by being tied to a cactus. He's only interested in killing superior jockeys to claim the prize money for himself.
-----
* BadassNormal: Doesn't have a Stand, has a girlish name, can kick your ass regardless.
* TheBeastmaster: With beetles. Although, the less said about [[EyeScream *where* he raises and trains those beetles, the better]].
* CreepyCrossdresser: Definitely ''looks'' like a woman, if nothing else.
* FlechetteStorm: When attacking Gyro and Johnny, he has his beetles' movements set off the nearby cholla's needles. The beetles can quickly get out of the way, leading to the needles becoming a bullet fusillade.
* GenderBlenderName: Subverted; you'd expect one of the characters to make a comment about his unusual name. There isn't.

! Andre Boomboom (Stand: Tomb of the Boom 1)
[[quoteleft:251:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/andre_boom_boom.png]]
-----
* BloodyMurder: The point of his initial contact with Gyro and Johnny wasn't just to get fire to treat his lizard bite. It was also to get some of his blood on them for his Stand to start work with. His Stand, by the way, manipulates magnetism. Now, consider that blood contains iron...

! L.A. Boomboom (Stand: Tomb of the Boom 2)
[[quoteleft:241:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/l_a_boom_boom.png]]
-----
* TheDitz: He apparently inherited his uneven intellect from his mother. Unfortunately, [[AbusiveParents Benjamin]] and even Andre don't hold back from tearing into him for it, although Andre isn't nearly as brutal about it.
* DudeLooksLikeALady

! Benjamin Boomboom (Stand: Tomb of the Boom 3)
[[quoteleft:221:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/benjamin_boom_boom.png]]
-----
* AbusiveParents: You really have to feel bad for his sons. What with all the upbraiding he sends their way, ''especially'' to L.A.... And then there's intentionally ''shooting through Andre's own wound'' to get more blood on the heroes, ''and'' not really paying attention when it's clear Andre's starting to succumb to the lizard venom...
* {{Jerkass}}
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He can take advantage of his prosthetic iron jaw by using Tomb of the Boom to reshape it ''[[BodyHorror into]]'' his face and from there reshape his face into someone else's (e.g. Johnny Joestar's).

! Oyecomova (Stand: Boku no Rhythm wo Kiitekure[[note]]lit. "Listen to My Rhythm"[[/note]])
[[quoteleft:251:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oyecomova.png]]

An anti-monarchist from Naples, out to kill Gyro as part of a plot to destabilize the monarchy. His Stand, Boku no Rhythm wo Kiitekure ("Listen to My Rhythm"), allows him to attach grenade pins to anything in his vicinity. If not held down, whatever they're attached to will detonate.
-----
* HolierThanThou: Not as bad as Blackmore, but he tends to regard his terrorist deeds (and, for that matter, his Stand awakening) as God's will.
* RiverOfInsanity: At one point, he creates bombs attached to ''the surface of a river'' -- meaning there's nothing to apply pressure to keep them from popping. Gyro and Johnny have to implement an OutrunTheFireball plan, keeping their horses moving faster than the bombs can explode.
* SpamAttack: Have fun trying to disarm all those bombs before they go off...
* StickyBomb: Can create grenade pins with clock heads that can attach to anything and explode when pulled or let loose. [[BeeAfraid And]] [[RiverofInsanity we]] [[WhyAmITicking mean]] '''[[SmokeOut anything]]'''.
* WesternTerrorists: Oyecomova is rather determined to assassinate the King of Naples. He targets Zeppelli on account of how his winning would rally the people back behind the monarchy.

! Fritz von Stroheim
[[quoteleft:265:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fritz_von_stroheim.png]]
-----
* ArmCannon
* {{Expy}}: Of Rudolf von Stroheim.
* WesternTerrorists: Stated as one.

! Pork Pie Hat Kid (Stand: Wired)
[[quoteleft:216:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pork_pie_hat_kid.png]]

Pork Pie Hat actually seems to be his first name, being referred as such a number of times. A bizarre assailant who attacks Johnny and Gyro, seeking their Corpse Parts.
-----
* {{Expy}}: Of Pesci.
* ExtremeOmnivore: He likes the taste of ink, he wonders if his own teeth taste good...No wonder Wired's bound to his tongue.
* FunetikAksent: He has a problem pronouncing Johnny's name.
* {{Gonk}}: Once he loses the pipes on his head...ugh...
* HooksAndCrooks: Pork Pie Hats has to two hooked chains coming from his mouth which he can send through various objects to attack.
* VerticalKidnapping: Pork Pie Hat hooks his victims from above via falling feathers.
* WesternTerrorists: By now, it becomes clear to Gyro and Johnny that the terrorists are after one thing, the components of the Saint. Even if they have to kill to do it.

! Dr. Ferdinand (Stand: Scary Monsters)
[[quoteleft:236:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dr_ferdinand.png]]
-----
* TheBeastmaster: Well, first he has to transform other beings into at least partial utahraptors, but once ''that's'' done...
** He can also turn them into other dinosaurs, such a a bear into a T-rex and mice into some Compsognathus.
* BerserkButton: More calm than most other instances, but doing anything that looks even a ''little'' disrespectful to the ground is one very fast way to get on his bad side.
* {{Bishonen}}: To [[DudeLooksLikeALady insane]] levels.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Once Scary Monsters is disengaged, it turns out it was at the worst possible time for Ferdinand, because the two utahraptors nearest to him had originally been ''mountain lions''. Unhappy mountain lions, at that. Cue one savage mauling.
* InsaneTrollLogic: He seems to think that the dinosaurs died out because they disrespected the environment.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: If Scary Monsters affects you, and you're not holding a piece of the Saint's corpse, you get to look forward to becoming part utahraptor.
* ScaledUp: The power of Scary Monsters.
* WesternTerrorists: Willing to turn an entire town into dinosaurs in order to carry out his goals.

! Ringo Roadagain (Stand: Mandom)
[[quoteleft:165:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ringo_roadagain_8.png]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/HirokiYasumoto (''All-Star Battle'')

A man who lives in the woods along the Steel Ball Run course. He seeks to duel those who come his way in order to purge himself of fear and uncertainty. His Stand, Mandom, lets him rewind time by six seconds, leaving everyone with the memory of what happened in those seconds.
-----
* AffablyEvil: He's very polite, willing to let Gyro without any hidden agendas, and a very honest and honorable warrior.
* BadassBaritone: His voice in All-Star Battle is very deep and smooth, fitting his calm and purposeful behavior.
* BadassBeard: His goatee is shaped like a skull. He's just that awesome.
* BloodKnight: Pretty obliquely, though. He intentionally gets those in his orchard bound into Mandom's effect so they grow desperate enough to kill him. He believes that if he engages in duels only with those who seek only his death, with no spite or the like involved, his spirit will be purified of uncertainty, and he'll grow ever more useful to humanity.
* TheCameo: He's in charge of Versus mode in ''All-Star Battle'', bringing his ideal of fair play with him.
* DeathSeeker: Seeks death to be purified of uncertainty to be useful to humanity.
* ExplainingYourPowersToTheEnemy: As per his ideals of honorable combat, he insists that both sides know exactly what the other is capable of before the fight starts.
* GoOutWithASmile: Because he clears all chance and doubt from his fights, he dies ''knowing'' his killer was the better fighter, exactly what he wanted.
* GroundhogDayLoop: Only six seconds worth, and they have to be spaced out by at least a minute. But everyone gets to react to what they know will happen in those six seconds.
* TheGunslinger: Type D, the Quick Draw. Goes hand in hand with his power. By his being able to turn ambushes into a moot point, the only thing left you can do is go head to head with a man who can quite clearly out shoot you, nor flinch in the slightest, due to his DeathSeeker tendencies.
* HonorBeforeReason: Good news: He explains ''everything'' that could be a factor in a fight. He's purifying ''chance'' out of his duels.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Possibly of Creator/CharlesBronson.
* RapeAsDrama: Well, almost raped by a vagrant murderer who'd already killed the rest of his family. "Almost" because of Mandom's power. Basically, the threat of rape was what awakened Mandom.
* TimeMaster: And, oddly for [=JoJo=], he's not the main antagonist even though he has this sort of power.

! Blackmore (Stand: Catch the Rainbow)
[[quoteleft:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blackmore.png]]

One of Funny Valentine's assistants, sent to find who intercepted a carrier pigeon whose message contained the location of a Corpse Part. His Stand, Catch the Rainbow, gives him near-complete control of his body in the rain.
-----

* APlagueInBothYourHouses: Dies while cursing Johnny, Gyro and Lucy and calling them sinners.
* TheAtoner: After seeing Jesus, his actions are the result of trying to atone for even thinking about betraying Valentine.
* DetachmentCombat: He can detach his body parts. He mainly uses his mouth to bite and intimidate via speech.
* TheEeyore: Acts like this, consantly apologizing and looking sad, although when he gets going...
* HazardousWater: He can manipulate raindrops into platforms, blades, bandages, etc.
* HolierThanThou: Once he [[spoiler:sees a vision of Jesus in connection with the pieces of the Corpse]], he gets ''really'' bad when it comes to confronting the heroes.
* LivingOnBorrowedTime: He uses rain to fill the wounds caused by him geting shot by Lucy, but he knows that at the moment it stops raining, he wounds will open and he will die.
* ScaryCompetentTracker: He discovers Lucy and Mountain Tim in a blink. He is way more observant than the average president underling.
* SituationalSword: Catch The Rainbow only works if it is raining.
* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: His dialogue is... broken... up in a... very odd manner.
* SwissArmySuperpower: Catch The Rainbow has an amazingly versatile set of abilities, perhaps one of the more versatile in the entire manga. Catch is, it only works when it's raining.
* VerbalTic: "Im so-rry".
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Although he creates it using his Stand, meaning it's InvisibleToNormals.
* WouldHitAGirl: He had every intent to kill Lucy Steel.

! The Eleven Riders (Stand: Tatoo You!)
[[quoteleft:245:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eleven_men.PNG]]

Eleven nameless men, sent by Funny Valentine to retrieve the Corpse Parts from Johnny and Gyro. They share a Stand, Tatoo You!, which allows them to travel between each other's bodies, even if some of their number are dead.
-----
* HiveMind
* IAmLegion
* {{MIB}}
* NoNameGiven: To the point another name some fans use for them is "Eleven Nameless Men".
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In the original Japanese, the Stand's name is indeed written "TATOO YOU!"

* TheBeastmaster: An interesting sort, in that his breath transforms pieces of metal into balloon animals that act like their real-life counterparts.
* TheDragon: If only because he's the White House's head of security.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: His stand turns nails into balloon animals. The things he can pull off with this border cringeworthy, at times.
* MonsterClown: Is dressed in a flamboyantly poofy and spikey outfit and wears face paint that make him look more like a court jester than the president's top bodyguard. It certainly fits his ability to create deadly balloon animals.
* YourHeadASplode: [[spoiler:What happens when Hot Pants makes it impossible for Mike to properly exhale Tubular Bells.]]

! Wekapipo
[[quoteleft:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wekapipo.png]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/KenNarita (''All-Star Battle'')
-----
* BadassNormal: Wekapipo lacks a Stand entirely. His ability Wrecking Ball is just a variant of the Zeppeli family's Steel Ball techniques.
* TheCameo: A pre-match effect in Campaign mode in ''All-Star Battle'', he uses Wrecking Ball to weaken your opponent.
* CynicismCatalyst: The death of his sister triggers this. [[spoiler:He gets better when it is revealed that Gyro's father is protecting her]].
* {{Expy}}: [[spoiler:He has a connection to Zeppeli/Gyro, knows some Hamon/Spin techniques, joins the heroes, and is ultimately offed by Dio/Diego. Kinda like Dire. On the other hand, his backstory and the fact that he pulls a HeelFaceTurn after being misguided by his hatred also makes him comparable to Polnareff.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler: You know how Funny Valentine can trigger a NeverTheSelvesShallMeet? He does it to Wekapipo. Valentine traps Diego in another dimension with the intent to kill him, but Diego quickly realizes how [=D4C=] works (allowing things to travel between dimensions when they get caught between two things) so Diego gets himself stuck between ''the two Wekapipos'']].
* HeelFaceTurn
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:On figuring out that Gyro can use the wolf corpse to calculate the Golden Rectangle, he buries it under the ice with Wrecking Ball... which throws ice chips and melted water into the air. Given the freezing temperatures, they immediately become ''snow'', which Gyro promptly uses to work out the Rectangle and defeat Wekapipo.]]

! Magent Magent (Stand: 20th Century Boy)
[[quoteleft:236:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/magent_magent_9.png]]
-----
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:His final confrontation with Diego and Wekapipo forces him to activate 20th Century Boy underwater. Far underwater. And 20th Century Boy's aegis extends to not letting him drown. Since no one can find him there, and deactivating his Stand will kill him, and it won't let him do that, he's now an underwater edition of Kars/Anubis.]]
* EyeScream: Try to remember that what goes up must come down, next time!
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: [[spoiler:Much like Kars, Magent Magent's brain stops working after an unspecified but presumably lengthy period of being trapped underwater.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Being forced into activating his own stand leads to his imprisonment at the bottom of the sea.]]
* NighInvulnerable: Magent Magent can wear 20th Century Boy to become this, with the added side-effect that it renders him completely immobile as well. [[spoiler:This comes back to bite him, as he is trapped underwater and unable to move presumably forever until his mind breaks down.]]
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He appears to be based on Marc Bolan of T. Rex fame. His stand name supports this.
* NoIndoorVoice: Although we can't hear his voice per say, the translation team assures us that due to the way his speech is written in Japanese that he sounds like "a more coherent Donald Duck or a male Fran Drescher".
* NoseNuggets: Magent Magent is...''disgusting''. His nose is constantly running, and while that can be attributed to the cold weather when he sneezes into his hands he ''licks up the snot''.
* RepetitiveName
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Many people translated his name as "Magenta Magenta", as his namesake is a SOUL'd OUT song by that name; however, the Japanese translation of his name doesn't have an A at the end.

! Axl RO (Stand: Civil War)
[[quoteleft:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/axl_ro.png]]
-----
* ShapeshifterGuiltTrip: Manifests and brings to life objects the victim feels guilt over. This includes the Stand owner, who can actually bring himself back to life if he's killed by someone who feels any form of guilt over his death
* SurvivorGuilt: The basis of Civil War's power. Also Axl's backstory as a Civil War lookout who failed to warn a town of an incoming army.
* ThanatosGambit: Willingly lets himself be killed to force his own personal guilt onto his foe. [[spoiler:Ends up being HoistByHisOwnPetard when Johnny uses his own ThanatosGambit to return Axl's personal guilt back onto himself.]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: Clean water forces the objects summoned by Civil War to leave their victims.

! D-I-S-C-O (Stand: Chocolate Disco)
[[quoteleft:249:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d_i_s_c_o_9.png]]
-----
* HomingProjectile: Chocolate Disco allows D-I-S-C-O to do this with everything, from nails to acid. Unfortunately for D-I-S-C-O, the [=JoJoverse=] works on HeartIsAnAwesomePower and PhysicsGoof.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Lasts two chapters, only to serve as a distraction to Gyro. The only time he speaks is to give the name of his stand. The rest is D-I-S-C-O getting [[CurbstompBattle curb-stomped]] by Gyro.

! Jonathan "Johnny" Joestar (Stand: Tusk)
[[quoteleft:245:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/johnny_joestar.png]]
-> Voiced by: YuukiKaji (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven''), Creator/TakahiroMizushima (radio drama)

A young horse racing prodigy, Johnny's heyday as a horse jockey came to an abrupt end when a public incident left him paraplegic. He meets Gyro Zepelli before the Steel Ball Run begins and finds himself captivated by his steel ball ability. After fighting for Gyro's attention, the two team up for the race.

He's known for his cynical, self-centered, critical and fairly mean-spirited behavior. Despite this, he's a solid JerkassWoobie due to his terrible upbringing and self-esteem issues, and much of the story is about him growing out of this behavior to become a much nicer, self-sacrificing person. His stand is Tusk, which allows him to fire his fingernails as bullets. [[spoiler: Tusk has acts, much like Echoes from Part 4, and levels up as Johnny masters the spin. Act 2 allows him to move the bulletholes left by the nails, like dragging them along the surface. In Act 3, Johnny shoots ''himself'' to send the spin onto himself, allowing him to move through his holes and shoot from multiple angles. Act 4 allows Johnny to shoot a nail bullet with ''infinite spin'', meaning he gains the power of infinity against his opponent and can completely incapacitate them, along with destroying Valentine's infinite dimension-hopping powers by applying the spin to him, as it follows Valentine across multiple universes.]]
-----
* AbnormalAmmo: He shoots his nails.
* AntiHero: Johnny's the most ambiguously heroic of the Joestars for a number of reasons.
** ClassicalAntiHero: The neglect and contempt shown by his father, and [[BreakTheHaughty the events that led up to him getting paralyzed]], turned him into a bitter shadow of his former self, with deep-seated self-esteem issues. In fact, the reason he seeks to [[spoiler:acquire the Corpse Parts]] is so that a "useless person" like him could have a purpose for living.
** UnscrupulousHero: On top of that, Johnny is not really heroic. He just wanted the Corpse and is not particularly nice. To have the Corpse he'll do everything even if he must kill someone. He even proposed to Gyro to shoot a [[WouldHurtAChild child]] with a serious face. He does mellow down over the course of the story, but still.
** This is deconstructed when he admits that in a way, his goals are pettier than Valentine's [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned but insane scheme]], causing him to nearly side with the BigBad. The only reason he doesn't do so is because he's smart enough to test if Valentine was going to double cross him, and not because he had any sudden moral objections.
* [[spoiler:AnyoneCanDie: Bites it, 10 years after the events of SBR.]]
* AwesomeMcCoolName: Joestar.
** JohnnyMcCoolname: His nickname.
* {{Bishonen}}
* BreakTheHaughty: He wound up paralyzed, simply because he thought he was too rich and famous to wait in line.
* BrickJoke: Even in an alternate universe, [[spoiler:Dio manages to overshadow Jonathan in the eyes of his father...]]
* ByronicHero: See Contrasting Reboot Character below for more details.
* CharacterDevelopment: The whole story of SBR is basically about it. Over the course of the story, Johnny finds that there's more to life beyond the walls he had built around himself.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Other than similarities in their backstories, Johnny neither looks nor acts like Jonathan, in any way. Jonathan was a kind, idealistic, unselfish, and generous musclebound mountain of a man; Johnny is a cruel, cynical, self-centered, and petty scrawny kid (though partly justified by the atrophy caused by his disability). In other words, Jonathan was the IdealHero with scarcely any flaws, while Johnny is a very flawed ByronicHero with few redeeming qualities.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Comes off as whiny, incompetent, and overly reliant on Gyro. In-battle, however, it becomes clear that he can hold his own. This is especially apparent when [[spoiler:his "Dark Will" comes out]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Out of all of the [=JoJos=] that have appeared, Johnny's definitely the snarkiest of them all. He likes to reply with sarcastic remarks, particularly when it comes to Gyro and his indecipherable jokes and weird songs.
-->'''Gyro''': ~Pizza Mozzarella... Pizza Mozzarella... Rella Rella Rella~ What do you think?\\
'''Johnny''': Gyro... That's a damn good song.\\
'''Gyro''': Really?!\\
'''Johnny''': Ah... Oh man. It's great! It's awesome! This is insane! It's get stuck in your head so easily! Especially the "rella rella" part.. Its like... a masterpiece! I can't get it out of my mind! it'll definitely be a hit back in [[spoiler:Europe.]]
** He's also the only character to compliment Josuke's hair in ''All Star Battle''. The taunt is in the snark.
* Decoy Protagonist: Flip flopped, due to his namesake, readers may assume Johnny is the protagonist of the story. But according to Word of God, Gyro was originally written in the early parts of Steel Ball Run to be the protagonist. However, midway through the story Johnny starts to take more and more of a traditional protagonist role.
* {{Determinator}}: Getting his shit kicked out of him by a horse and having a piece of wood lodged in his leg will not stop this guy from learning the secret of [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Gyro's steel balls]], and later on, absolutely ''nothing'' will get between him and the corpse parts.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: [[spoiler:Jonathan Joestar, but he started calling himself "Johnny" after people started calling him "[=JoJo=]".]]
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: [[spoiler:Once he figures out the Golden Ratio, his nail bullets become incredibly powerful weapons which create movable rifts that seek out the target's vitals and destroy them.]]
* {{Expy}}: He doesn't have much in common with Jonathan at first, but then you find out his full backstory...
** It's more subtle, but he also takes [[CompositeCharacter some elements]] from Battle Tendency Joseph's personality as well. He used to be a [[TheCasanova Casanova]] {{Jerkass}} with a serious arrogant streak before LaserGuidedKarma struck, and towards the end, he also [[spoiler: [[AnArmAndALeg loses an arm]] soon after Gyro reveals his true name, although this time he gets better]].
* EyesNeverLie: [[spoiler:He sees no problem with killing an opponent if he thinks it's necessary. Gyro can tell just by looking at his eyes -- Johnny's killing intent is depicted as smoldering black flames in his pupils]].
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity: He calmly accepts his fate after Diego from an alternate universe hits him with his own infinite rotation. Subverted in that he does get better in the end.]]
* {{Fetish}}: He has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formicophilia formicophilia]].
* FingerGun: A more serious example than usual. He sometimes poses like this to aim Tusk.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Very early on in the arc, Gyro mentions to Johnny that mosquito bites are the number one causes of death. As we approach the climax, we find out about his little fetish...
** [[spoiler:And ultimately, Gyro dies from dozens of small wounds from [=D4C's=] ability, resembling mosquito bites.]]
* FriendshipMoment: [[HoYay A lot with Gyro]], but the most touching scene is the one where [[spoiler:he gave the corpse to the enemy in order to save him.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He gets a scar, after [[spoiler:he got shot]].
* GreenLanternRing: [[spoiler:The Golden Ratio also allowed him to use the rifts created by his nails to transport parts or all of him to other places.]]
* HandicappedBadass: Not being able to use the legs doesn't stop him from kicking ass, as well as participating in a country spanning horse race.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: How dangerous are his [[ItMakesSenseInContext spinning fingernail bullets?]] ''Very''.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: Johnny sacrifices himself to save his son, when using the corpse's power to save his wife backfires horribly.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: He literally thinks of himself as "less than zero".
* HotBlooded: He is a ''[=JoJo=]''. Tons of screaming and aggressive forcefulness is to be expected from him.
* ImplacableMan: The higher evolutions of Tusk turn him (and his nail bullets) into this. Not even hiding behind cover, deflecting his attacks, or [[spoiler:stopping time]] can protect you for very long.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He shoots his fingernails like bullets. Even for [=JoJo=], that's pretty over the top.
* InSeriesNickName: [=JoJo=].
* JohnnyMcCoolName: Johnny Joestar, although "Johnny" is a nickname he gave himself.
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: In [=JoJolion=], he stole the corpse that was supposed to have been sealed at the end of Part 7 in order to cure his wife from the unknown disease. Since the "curing" works on the EquivalentExchange basis, and not wanting to get the disease himself, Johnny really begs that some stranger will get it instead. That "stranger" turns out be his son George. In grief, Johnny repeats the procedure, now getting the disease himself, with fatal results. [=JoJolion=] calls this "Johnny Joestar's Sin".]]
* LetsGetDangerous: Deconstructed and subverted with his [[spoiler:Dark Will. When Johnny has his mind set on killing someone, that's ''all he's focused on''. He puts no other thoughts into his actions in this state, something easily exploited by his enemies.]]
* MundaneUtility: After Johnny first masters the Golden Ratio, and learns to [[spoiler:create rotational force around his finger]], he quickly finds innocuous functions, like grating cheese, wrapping spaghetti, and ''brushing his teeth''. It even makes Gyro jealous.
* NiceHat: His odd horseshoe-bandanna combo. [=JoJolion=] implies that at some point he traded it for a tasseled sailor's cap resembling Josuke's.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Of Axl Rose.
* ParentalNeglect: His father focused most, if not all, of his attention on Johnny's brother, Nicholas, who was even more skilled in horse racing.
* PerpetualFrowner: In twenty-four volumes, Johnny smiles only twice, that's even less than Jotaro who's a notorious PerpetualFrowner himself.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: When his father finally apologizes to him for all those years of neglect]].
* PhenotypeStereotype: To show how American he is, he wears a horseshoe hat, and star-patterned blue pants, and arm-warmers with the American Flag design on them. He replaces the hat for a Pork-pie hat with a star-patterned hem and gets rid of the original arm-warmers for some white ones.
* TheProtagonist
* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:He regains his ability to walk in the end, but it's a slow and gradual recovery; not a single, climactic, miraculous, and perfectly timed moment.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red Oni to Gyro's blue, at the beginning. Interestingly, the roles are reversed as the story goes on.
* SayMyName: ''GYROOOOOOOOOOO!!''
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In Japanese, even! In the first chapter his name is spelled ジョニー, but afterward it's ジョニィ.
* [[spoiler:SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: A flashback in [=JoJolion=] reveals that Johnny was killed in Japan ten years after the events of Steel Ball Run.]]
* SymbolMotifClothing: Stars are everywhere in his design, to show that he is a Joestar and an American.
* TookALevelInBadass: His stand, Tusk, keeps evolving as he learns to use the Golden Ratio in battle.
* TranquilFury: [[spoiler:When his "Dark Determination" kicks in, he barely speaks; this means that he ''really'' wants to kill you.]]
* TheUnfavorite: To his father.
* [[spoiler:VictoriousLoser: Not only did he NOT win Steel Ball Run, he was disqualified in the last 1000 meters. Yet, the sight of his father cheering him on with pride as he thundered past Broadway, and the thoughts of the memories of his epic trek with Gyro was more than enough. Johnny may have lost the race, but he won something far more precious; a true friend and his father's love.]]
* WellDoneSonGuy

! [[spoiler:Iulius Caesar]] "Gyro" Zeppeli (Stand: Scan / [[spoiler:Ball Breaker]])
[[quoteleft:251:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gyro_zeppeli.png]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/ShinichiroMiki (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven''), Creator/KenjiHamada (radio drama)

A mysterious racer who suddenly shows up in the U.S. for the Steel Ball Run. He ends up catching the eye of many people, good and bad, due to his unique ability to manipulate steel balls. He eventually acts as a sort of partner and mentor to Johnny after the race begins.

Gyro is fun loving, kind and intelligent, though this belies a ruthless and pragmatic heart that is able to think quick on his feet. He quickly bonds with Johnny. Gyro uses the ''Spin'', a kind of centrifugal force that has the power of infinity if used correctly, and can be considered a sort of counterpart to the Ripple. Gyro's stand is Scan, which allows him to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin scan the horizon for things of interest.]] [[spoiler: When he masters the spin, he gains Ball Breaker, which allows him to accelerate the energy of an object if he hits it with the spin, i.e accelerating a persons cells to the point where they rapidly age.]]

[[spoiler:Gyro hails from Naples and comes from a family line of executioners. After questioning the morality of the job when an innocent boy, Marco, is convicted of treason for failing to report his employers' conspiracy against the king, he sets out to enter the Steel Ball Run and land first place to curry the king's favor and earn amnesty for Marco, who is awaiting execution.]]

* EightiesHair: He had a mullet when he was a kid.
* AnyoneCanDie: [[spoiler:No character named Zeppeli has ever reached the end of their given part alive.]]
* BadassBeard
* BadassNormal: He does not need a Stand to fight.
* BarbarianLongHair: Has a wild untamed mane, and being a physical fighter, has the right to claim it.
* BigBrotherMentor: To Johnny.
* {{Biseinen}}
* BloodFromTheMouth
* BroughtDownToBadass: After he willingly [[spoiler:gave "Scan" away by handing the corpse part over to Lucy Steel.]]
* CatchPhrase: Nyohoho!
* CloudCuckoolander: Gyro has a couple of quirky moments in ''Steel Ball Run'', his weird cheese song being one of the most notable.
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: [[spoiler:What killed him? Tiny scratches that by way of [=D4C=]'s secondary ability traveled to his heart, thus dying of internal hemorrhage.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: He shares an equal amount of page-time with Johnny in the first 21 volumes, but [[spoiler:following his defeat and subsequent death at [[BigBad Valentine]]'s hands]], he loses TheProtagonist role to Johnny, who is left to defeat the villain by himself.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: He has balls of steel.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Gyro is a [[spoiler:professional assassin]] with a huge pragmatic streak, but even he gets disturbed by how ruthless Johnny can be.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: The basis for the steel balls' power is their rotation. Based on the Golden Ratio, no less.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: His actual given name is [[spoiler:Iulius Caesar, the Latin form of "Julius Caesar".]]
* {{Expy}}: He's a CompositeCharacter who fulfills the older and wiser mentor role of Part 1's William, as well as the best friend role and [[spoiler: namesake]] of Part 2's Caesar. Likewise, his motive for freeing Marco calls to mind Mark from Battle Tendency as well.
* FriendshipMoment: With Johnny.
* GenerationXerox: [[spoiler:Like the other Zeppeli who have appeared in the series, he doesn't survive.]]
* TheHero: Johnny is the protagonist but Gyro is more heroic.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:'Tis the inevitable fate of the Zeppeli bloodline...]]
* TheLastDance
* MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext: All of his jokes, which even Johnny finds to be indecipherable.
--> Pizza mozzarella pizza mozzarella rella rella rella
* MeaningfulName: His nickname, Gyro, which means "revolve" in many romance languages, such as in "gyroscope" and "gyration". [[spoiler:His real name, Iulius Caesar, has the obvious meaning... but it also connects him to Caesar from Part 2, another co-protagonist who started out stronger than the main character before being killed.]]
* MentorOccupationalHazard: [[spoiler:Lesson 5...]]
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: [[spoiler:Named after Julius Caesar, much to his embarrassment.]] Unusual in that Gyro's case is the ''only'' time such a connection is acknowledged in the text.
* NiceHat: Cut to resemble a cyclist helmet. Also, there's a pair of goggles which, instead of lenses, just has a few holes cut kinda like Kanye West venetian sunglasses.
* MortalWoundReveal
* NonindicativeName: Minor, the chapter 'The Desert-Born Outlaws' shows us his steel balls are actually made of iron. Presumbly it's the shape that allows him to conduct the Spin through them, since every iteration of the "steel balls" that he makes after losing or destroying a pair of them bear the same design on their surface.
* ReallyDeadMontage: [[spoiler:He gets one.]]
* RealMenWearPink: When packing for the race, he decided a comic book and a teddy bear took priority over toilet paper, scissors, and a tooth brush plus tooth powder.
* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler:The kid he ran the race to save does get saved by Johnny in the end, but dies just a few years later from a fever.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In the French official translation, "Gyro" becomes "Jayro". It becomes "J Lo" in Italy, but that's pronounced the same way.
** NoPronunciationGuide: In Italian his name is pronounced 'Yee-ro', but in both [[VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle All Star Battle]] and the radio drama it's pronounced 'Ji-ro'.
* {{Technobabble}}: For those who aren't science or arithmetic buffs, the way his steel balls work will require some very serious research and at least one re-reading.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Eventually gains "Ball Breaker", a second stand.]]

The much younger wife of Stephen Steel, unwittingly dragged into the world of the Steel Ball Run and [[spoiler:the Holy Corpse.]] Though living in constant danger of the wrath of the president, and overwhelmed by the gravity of the situation she is in, for the sake of her husband's safety, she opposes Valentine behind the scenes.
-----
* ArtisticAge: She's pretty tall and... well-developed for a 14 year-old.
* BadassAdorable
* BrickJoke: [[spoiler:How she defeats Alternate Universe Diego Brando. She brings the original Diego's head close to him, which, because of how the same people from alternate universes die by being forcibly fused together, causes his head to explode into a bloody mess]].
* CallBack: She has the same maiden name as Erina from Parts 1 and 2.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Sometimes she looks her age (at the beginning and at the near end), sometimes she [[YoungerThanTheyLook doesn't.]]
* {{Determinator}}
* GuileHero: She has no supernatural abilities whatsoever, so she has to rely on her wits to survive.
* TheHeart
* IntergenerationalFriendship: [[spoiler:With Stephen Steel. It's far stronger than any normal friendship, though it doesn't necessarily qualify as "love".]]
* MsFanservice: So much so that [[Main/EvenTheGirlsWantHer the President's wife took an interest in her.]]
* PregnantBadass [[spoiler:When the Holy Corpse took residence in her womb to mature into a complete form again.]]
* SelectiveGravity: [[spoiler:Subconsciously, during the second stage of being the host]].
* SilkHidingSteel: Pun aside, the fact that this young lady is willing and able to stand to the occasion in spite of being terrified out of her wits makes her as brave as any hero.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Ever notice how alternate Diego never got to seal the corpse in the vault before he died? When Stephen gets there, the door is already closed, and it is heavily implied that Lucy herself closed the vault. As it was built so that only the person who closed the vault could open it, this sets the stage for Johnny to take the Corpse from said vault to Japan many years later.]]
* TearsOfFear: Sheds these during her closer encounters with Valentine and his subordinates.
* TookALevelInBadass: Several by Book 24, enough to [[spoiler:kill Diego Brando, who has The World as his stand]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: She's actually 14, but she looks about four, five, or maybe even six years older than that. She's rather tall, pretty curvy, and is fetishized a lot more than many other 14-year-olds are. [[spoiler:Valentine spent a few chapters trying to catch her and rape her.]]

* AnimeHair: His hair looks less like hair and more like a broken eggshell, just like [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart6 Foo Fighters'.]]
* TheCameo: He runs the Campaign mode in ''All-Star Battle''. And is ''extremely'' enthusiastic about it.
* CoolOldGuy

* {{Lolicon}}: How his marriage to Lucy makes him look.

-----
* BackForTheDead: [[spoiler:It looked like he was killed off by Oyecomova's Stand, only to turn out to be OK... only to be killed by Blackmore.]]
* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler:Shot in the head by Blackmore.]]
* DecoyProtagonist: Early arcs and covers after his debut set him up to round out a PowerTrio with Johnny and Gyro, recreating part 1's Joestar-Zeppeli-Speedwagon cast, and it's with his help that they're first clued into the true plot and intrigue behind the titular race. Instead, he leaves them be shortly after, and Steel Ball Run remained a BuddyPicture with frequent [[GuestStarPartyMember temporary companions]].
* DefiantToTheEnd:[[spoiler:refuses to give the identity of Lucy to Blackmore, resulting in his death.]]
* {{Expy}}: His scar, long hair ,and hat makes him look a bit like Speedwagon. He's also firmly good-aligned and has a one-sided crush on Lucy.
** His NiceHat and cowboy trappings also call Hol Horse's design to mind, though thankfully not his personality.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Towards Lucy Steel.
* MadeOfPlasticine: His Stand allows him to break his body up into pieces without harm as long as they stay connected to his rope. [[BodyHorror Not that it looks all that nice if you look at the part of his body the segments were originally attached to.]]

* ChurchMilitant
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:The death of her brother, for which she's partially responsible]].
* DroppedABridgeOnHer: [[spoiler:During the fight against Valentine, she becomes a victim of his new ability thanks to Love Train. However, because of how fast it happens and how nobody really pays attention to it much after, lots of fans tend to forget this fact, likening it to a similar incident earlier on in which she was in danger, yet somehow escaped off screen.]]
* EnemyMine: She double teams Valentine with the help of [[spoiler:Diego Brando.]] Yes, really.
* SwissArmySuperpower: Cream Starter is incredibly versatile for a Stand based around spraying flesh.
** BodyHorror: Naturally. Also one of Hot Pants' favorite kill tactics, sealing the target's mouth and nose shut to stop them from breathing.
** DetachmentCombat: She can use it to separate parts of her body from herself.
** GoodThingYouCanHeal: Comes in handy when the heroes need to get patched up after a battle.
** MasterOfDisguise: It can flawlessly immitate a person's appearance, up to changing someone's voice to create an even better disguise.

[[quoteleft:216:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sandman.png]]

An American Indian, a black sheep of his tribe, who enters the Steel Ball Run to secure his tribe's land. The first character we meet in Part 7.
-----
* AntiVillain
* BadassNative
* BadassNormal: In a race involving horses, he's the only one to run completely barefoot, yet he's almost always in the top running.
* BraidsBeadsAndBuckSkins
* {{Expy}}: To Part 4's Koichi Hirose, since both Echoes and In A Silent Way involve manipulating sounds [[spoiler: and can manifest those sounds as active effects in the case of Echoes Act 2]]
* HorseOfADifferentColor: Sort of; he ''runs barefoot'' in a horse race.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:The first victim of Tusk Act 2.]]
* MakeMeWannaShout: His Stand allows him to manipulate sound.
* MagicalNativeAmerican: By way of his Stand.
* {{Mondegreen}}[=/=]IAmNotShazam: His name is not Sandman, it's actually [[spoiler:Soundman. Though people continue to refer to him as "Sandman" after the reveal]].
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: The (non-canon)''Jorge Joestar'' novel gives his full name as Goyathlee [[spoiler:Soundman]], after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geronimo Goyathlay]].
* NobleSavage: Sandman is a MagicalNativeAmerican who participates in the Steel Ball Run to get the necessary money for his tribe to legally own their land. He is reasonably nice, and honorable enough to help contestants in need. [[spoiler: Even then he decides being a PunchClockVillain to Valentine is a better option to help his tribe than the race.]]
* NeutralNoLonger: [[spoiler:Although he appears at the very beginning of part 7 as a sympathetic character, and even seems like he may become an ally of Johnny and Gyro, his dedication to saving his homeland and people ultimately aligns him with Valentine.]]
* TragicVillain
* WeaponsGradeVocabulary: His Stand can create the sound effect ''kana'' that, when touched, induces the related effect, i.e. "burning", "cutting", or "stabbing".

! Pocoloco (Stand: Hey Ya!)
[[quoteleft:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pocoloco.png]]
->Voiced by: YasuhikoKawazu (''All-Star Battle''), Fumihiro Okabayashi (radio drama)

The son of a former slave, disinclined to hard work. His Stand, Hey Ya!, gives him seemingly nonsensical advice that always turns out in his favor.
-----
* BoringInvincibleHero: Arguably a ShadowArchetype for Gyro and Johnny. While all three seek to win the race (and Johnny's main goal isn't so much the money as figuring out Gyro's spin secrets), Pocoloco's absurd luck means the race has no personal meaning to him, and he never grows as a person because of his complacent dependence on his power. So while he may have [[spoiler:won the race and the money]], it pales in comparison to Gyro and Johnny's struggles and personal growth, represented by their greater cause to stop Funny Valentine from obtaining the whole Corpse.
* BornLucky: The effect of his Stand.
* TheCameo: An ''extremely'' rare post-match effect in ''All-Star Battle'' Campaign mode, he shares his "pot of luck", completely refilling your energy.
* TheFool: The man's a dimwit, and yet he is blessed with ''crazy'' luck.
* HumbleGoal: He's after the prize money so that he can afford to just watch the clouds, and so his father doesn't have to be a sharecropper anymore.
* MeaningfulName: The (non-canon) ''Jorge Joestar'' novel gives his full name as Pocoloco ''Tripleseven'', emphasizing his ridiculous luck.
* MistakenForBadass: Despite being a complete dolt, thanks to his amazing luck, he is commonly mistaken as a racing genius [[ObfuscatingStupidity who only looks like a moron at first glance.]]
* NiceGuy: An easygoing and humble guy who just wants to relax and watch the clouds. [[spoiler: This helps take the edge off the audience when he ends up winning the Steel Ball Run.]]
* RagsToRiches

! Sugar Mountain
[[quoteleft:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sugar_mountain.png]]
A young woman who is the representative of a Stand-possessing Tree, which has the Stand named Sugar Mountain's Spring.
-----
* ElegantGothicLolita: She even quotes ''{{Literature/Lolita}}'' at one point.
* HonestAxe: Anytime something gets dropped into the spring, she is compelled to offer the actual object or something more extravagant. If you're honest, she'll give you both. Gyro figures out her game [[spoiler:and drops rabbit ears into the spring, earning him and Johnny the corpse ears]]. The catch is that [[spoiler:if you don't use all of the items you earned by sundown, your soul will be trapped in the tree by the spring]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:She's around 66, although she was trapped by the Tree for about 50 years]].

! Norisuke Higashikata
[[quoteleft:241:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/norisuke_higashikata.png]]

An old Japanese man famous for being "the man with two navels", who enters the Steel Ball Run. May or may not be the ancestor of Part 8's Higashikata family.
-----
* BaldOfAwesome
* CoolOldGuy: Anyone who survives, let alone wins even a single stage in the Steel Ball Run at the age of ''68'' more than qualifies. It also helps that he has [[CrazyAwesome two navels.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:His two navels foreshadow the next arc]].
* RedHerring: During the confrontation with the Stand "In A Silent Way", Johnny (and by extension, the reader) presumed that he was the user. [[spoiler:No less than three pages later, we find out it's actually Soundman.]]

! Urmd Abdul
[[quoteleft:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/urmd_avdol.png]]
-----
* BlackGuyDiesFirst: He might not have died, but he's the first to be "eliminated" from the race.
* {{Expy}}: Of Mohammad Avdol, though Avdol was far less of a dick.
* HorseOfADifferentColor: He enters the race riding a ''camel''.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Slams his camel into any horse that gets close, hoping to drive their riders out of the race. He thus brings it on himself when Gyro lures him into a patch of cacti.
* NiceHat: He wears a turban.

! Gaucho
[[quoteleft:201:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gaucho.jpg]]
----
* BadassSpaniard
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By Ringo.]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe: The first time he gets a line is [[spoiler:just before he dies]].

! Scarlet Valentine
[[quoteleft:251:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scarlet_valentine.png]]
----
* BiTheWay: She thinks that Lucy is ''really'' cute, and is more than willing to have sex with her.
** DepravedBisexual: Lucy drugs her and sneaks into Valentine's room to steal his corpse part. Scarlet wakes up and ambushes her, furious that Lucy had just pretended to like her to get to Valentine.
* TheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Even though she's more than willing to cheat on her husband with another woman, she genuinely loves Valentine, and sees him as a kind and compassionate soul.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Killed by Mike O.'s stand, as his balloon dogs had caught wind of 'Scarlet's' (actually Lucy in disguise thanks to Hot Pants) scent and tracked down and killed her.

! Dario
[[quoteleft:170:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dario.png]]
----
* AbusiveParents: UpToEleven if it were possible with Dario.
* {{Bishonen}}: To contrast the original's EvilOldFolks appearance, he's much more handsome. [[JerkAss Not that he's better; in fact, he's worse]].
* {{Jerkass}}: Even more than the original, if it were possible.
* KarmaHoudini: Nothing has been said about his fate except Diego wants to find him for what he did. [[spoiler:[[KilledOffForReal Unfortunately he didn't get a chance]]]].
* KickTheDog: His attempt to have Diego drowned in order to not have an extra mouth to feed.
* TookALevelInJerkass: While the original universe Dario was a drunk and [[AbusiveParents an abusive father]] that led Dio to evil, he still ultimately cared for his welfare. Here, he's an unrepentant {{Jerkass}} who throws Diego into the river in hopes he'll die to not have another mouth to feed.

! Funny Valentine (Stand: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap[[note]]Shortened to "[=D4C=]"[[/note]])
[[quoteleft:236:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/funny_valentine_7.png]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/YasuyukiKase (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven'')

The President of the United States ([[AlternateHistory of Valentine]]...). The mastermind behind the Steel Ball Run; the race actually stops along the locations of the corpse pieces, which he intends to take for himself.

His Stand is Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, sometimes just shorted to [=D4C=], which allows him to [[spoiler:interact with alternate universes]].
-----
* AgentPeacock: His style.
* AnimalMotif: Rabbit, as the UpTheRealRabbitHole, white color scheme, ability to multiply himself to large numbers, and upward-pointed horns of his Stand implies.
* AnimeHair: How does his hair manage to stay that curly?
* AntiVillain: Arguably the most sympathetic BigBad so far, being driven by his [[FreudianExcuse desire to protect his country at all costs.]]
* AcheyScars: [[spoiler:During his time as a soldier, he was tortured and left with scars resembling the Stars and Stripes on his back. He claims they usually ache, but stop doing so during the race, which he takes as a sign]].
* AffablyEvil: Charismatic, dignified, and polite at all times.
* AlternateUniverse: [[spoiler:Manages to actually weaponize dimensional hopping]].
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:One of [=D4C=]'s abilities.]] [[ImmortalLifeisCheap He uses it a lot more often than one would expect.]]
* BadassLongcoat
* BigBad: Of Part 7, although at first, he's more sympathetic than most of the previous Big Bads. Valentine's clever use of his stand, and sheer determination that rivals even the main duo's, make him a deadly adversary.
* BigBeautifulMan: Even before [[spoiler:he became a well-toned hunk]], Valentine looked quite attractive, thanks to the nature of Araki's artstyle.
** {{Biseinen}}: Would you believe he's pushing 50?
* CampStraight: With an AgentPeacock style.
* {{Catchphrase}}: [[http://youtu.be/rsVgXCMIYec Dojya~~~n]]!
* TheCharmer: Valentine is president of the United States for a reason; he's incredibly charismatic and many of his followers believe him for his rhetoric alone. Interestingly enough he was able to convince Johnny to forgive him for killing Gyro and all of his other actions; and would have probably found an ally in him had Valentine not hidden a gun behind his back. During the epilogue his approval rating was around 91%.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He demonstrates the best way to drink out of a can by piercing its bottom and drinking from there. He can also play the mandolin ''with his feet.''
* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: Takes Pucci's KnightTemplar tendencies fueled with a FreudianExcuse to the extremes, to the point where he skews towards AntiVillain territory. Also compared to most [=JoJo=] villains, Funny Valentine may be the most dignified and honorable of the lot, being a man of his word, always calm under pressure, and wanting to do what's best for America, even if it has to be over the corpses of others. He is still no less ruthless and amoral than the other villains.
* TheCynic: More or less sums up his motivations. Since he sees life as a zero-sum game where there is a set amount of "fortune" and "misfortune" to be distributed amongst the whole of humanity, he wishes to give his country as much "fortune" as possible while pushing away all the "misfortune", even if it means dooming non-Americans to more suffering.
* DubNameChange: In the simplest way possible -- [=D4C=] is never called by its full name in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''. There are, however, cheeky references to no one knowing what [=D4C=] stands for, or the statement that Valentine will do anything "for a fair and honest price"... but you can ''hear'' him saying "Dirty deeds done dirt-cheap" in GratuitousEnglish. Surprisingly, his "Love Train" ability is still called that.
* EagleLand: An interesting mix of type 1 and 2. On the one hand, he's a dignified man who works hard for the good of his country, treats his underlings and enemies with respect, yet still possesses a quirky and buffoonish side to him that makes him likable on a personal level. On the other hand, his patriotism perhaps goes too far, as he's willing to bring suffering to the entire world if it means more happiness for America. He's also very self-righteous, ruthless in his methods, and the fairly rapey vibes he gives off towards Lucy might paint him in a darker light.
* EvilVirtues: Ambition, Determination, Diligence and Resourcefulness.
* FamilyThemeNaming: The (non-canon) ''Jorge Joestar'' novel introduces two relatives of his named Funnier and The Funniest.
* FatBastard: At first, but at some point he gets a FanservicePack involving a rugged jaw and a chiseled body. [[spoiler:He may have switched himself with a sexier version from an alternate universe, as it's implied he has done so several times before, and may have been using Fat!Valentine as cover.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: To [=D4C=] and its powers - notice that in the first few chapters, Funny Valentine is surrounded by people who look exactly like him, save for one or two features (like height or facial hair). [[spoiler:Notice also that they never touch him.]]
* FreudianExcuse: His father died in battle for America's stability, leading him to do the same.
* FourIsDeath: The name of his stand is shortened to D'''4'''C.
** Also, the C is pronounced as ''shi'', making it a bilingual deathly pun.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He secretly tries to bring a gun from an alternate dimension in order to kill Johnny . Unfortunately for him, Johnny tosses the gun from the main dimension to him, which merges with the alternate one and exposes Valentine's treachery.
* HopeSpot: When he discovered [=D4C=]'s powers, he thought it would give him a chance to visit an alternate version of his father who survived the war so he could see him one last time. [[spoiler:Tragically, his father's death is one of the constants throughout all the the parallel realities.]]
* IGaveMyWord: He promises Lucy Steel that he'll save the life of her husband, Stephen, and holds to it even after [[SpannerInTheWorks Stephen interferes with his plan]]. But even if he ensures Stephen doesn't die, he'll [[FateWorseThanDeath punish him with pain]].
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[spoiler:Literally. I.e, he weaponizes the ''abstract concept of improbability and karma to fight the heroes.'']]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:''Weaponized.'' When Valentine stands in the dimensional gap created by the Corpse, any attack against him will be reflected on somebody else in the world in the form of KarmicDeath.]]
* LightIsNotGood: Not only is he a blonde and [[ManInWhite wearing white clothes]], but his stand is also white in color.
* ManInWhite: His clothes.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:On the verge of being defeated, Valentine puts off a RousingSpeech at Johnny, mixed with FreudianExcuse and MotiveRant, at least convincing him that Valentine had the moral upper ground, and almost convincing him that he would spare the latter.]][[spoiler: Almost.]]
* MesACrowd: [[spoiler:At one point, Valentine along with two other alternate dimension copies attack Diego Brando. [[CurbstompBattle They lost]].]]
* MrFanservice: He's attractive and shows it.
* MundaneUtility: It's implied that he's used his Stands to walk without the sound of footsteps.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: [[spoiler:If more than one iteration of a person or object exist in the same universe, their presence will end up annihilating both. [=D4C=]'s power protects Valentine himself from this effect, but he weaponizes it against others.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Johnny [[spoiler:eventually dies doing what Valentine tried to do with the Corpse Parts; shunting the misfortune of those he cared about onto others.]]
* OverlyLongName: "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" is tied with "Killer Queen Bites the Dust" for the series' longest Stand name so far, which is likely the main reason it's generally called [=D4C=].
* PresidentEvil: Albeit, a more sympathetic one, especially since he's a [=JoJo=] BigBad
* QuickDraw: [[spoiler:How Valentine is finally defeated.]]
* RealMenWearPink: Wears a bright pink longcoat in the colored manga and ''Eyes of Heaven.''
* TheRashomon: A side-effect of [=D4C=]'s abilities.
* SuperpowerLottery: Keeping with [=JoJo=] villain tradition, Valentine hit the jackpot.
** AlternateUniverse: [[spoiler:[[OffScreenTeleportation By closing himself between two objects, he can transport himself to one]].]]
*** WeaponizedTeleportation: [[spoiler:He can also do the same to any other person, and if they meet themselves in the alternate universe, [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet they'll both disintegrate.]]]]
** ImmortalLifeIsCheap: [[spoiler:[=D4C=] can transport [[BrainUploading Valentine's consciousness]] to an [[WeHaveReserves alternate universe body]] if he suffers a mortal wound, then [[BackFromTheDead bring the fresh body back.]]]]
*** MesACrowd: [[spoiler:He can also simply just transport a private army of himselves to attack en masse.]]
** KarmaHoudini / WindsOfDestinyChange: [[spoiler:Weaponized, but only while under the effect of Lucy's "Love Train". When standing inside the dimensional gap, all "misfortune" will pass through him and hit another victim in another part of the world. It also alters the karma of his enemies, by giving him an UnblockableAttack: Even the smallest scratch he gives you on the arm will transform into a small scratch on your vital organs, such as your heart.]]
* TheUnfettered: No act is too amoral for Valentine, if it means certain glory for America.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Becomes a lot more arrogant once [[spoiler:he utilizes Lucy's Love Train effect]] and becomes virtually invincible, believing that he has been marked for greatness by the Holy Corpse.
* UpTheRealRabbitHole: He constantly refers to his original world as the root world. [[spoiler:Justified, since the root world is the only world where the Holy Corpse exists]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Until the story of his father's death "inspired" him.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Averted, which is unusual for a [=JoJo=] villain, especially a BigBad, who all go down screaming at their fate; in fact, after being overwhelmed by Johnny's new power, he quickly re-composes himself by playing to his soft side in order to get a shot at him. And even when that failed, he made sure he'd had an ace by bringing alternate universe Diego Brando in order to get the Corpse.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: The public adores Funny Valentine. Our heroes, and their companions? Not so much.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Valentine's main motivation for obtaining the Corpse is patriotism, as he wants to use the Corpse's [[WindsOfDestinyChange ultimate power]] for the sake of the United States. His main fear, as he explains to Johnny and Dio, is that the corpse falls into the hands of another country's leader.]]
** [[spoiler:Jesus approved of him. Do we need to say more?.]]
* WindsOfDestinyChange: [[spoiler: Valentine weaponizes ''abstract concepts such as luck, karma and probability'' to take down the heroes. It works extremely effectively.]]

! Diego "Dio" Brando (Stand: Scary Monster[[spoiler:/The World]])
[[quoteleft:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diego_brando_4.png]]
->Voiced by: TakehitoKoyasu (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven''), Masayuki Katou (radio drama)

A genius racer from England. After his mother died due to terrible treatment while working in hellish Victorian England, he bitterly vowed to achieve the top place in society. After grabbing a hold of [[spoiler: one of the Corpse's eyes]], he eventually gains Scary Monster as a Stand, which allows him to turn himself and others into dinosaurs.
-----
* TheAce: Everybody recognizes him as a genius jockey. [[spoiler: He not only thoroughly kicks Valentine's ass, he also kicks the asses of several alternate universe Valentines and even his Stand at the same time.]]
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Diego was always recognized as more talented than Johnny, much to George Joestar's chagrin. Throughout the race, Johnny continuously tries to come on top over Dio[[spoiler:, but ultimately fails to ever defeat even him, even with the power that allowed him to defeat Valentine, Tusk ACT 4.]]
* {{Animorphism}}: After he fuses with one of the Turbo Eyes shortly before Dr. Ferdinand's death, he gains the ability to change into a dinosaur at will, thus gaining his own stand. The Ability itself comes from Dr. Ferdinand's Stand "Scary Monsters", thus the derived name.
* AntiVillain: Unlike the main universe one, Diego was portrayed as a sinister yet still tragic figure wanting to have his existence acknowledged; it may be hard to call him a good guy, but his goals and actions eventually line up with the heroic side.
* {{Bishonen}}
* TheBluebeard: Diego is rumored to have murdered his 83 year-old wife for the money.
* ChickMagnet: Girls love him so much they jumped on him '''when he was still racing'''.
* DemotedToDragon: The original Diego was essentially the GreaterScopeVillain of the first universe.
* {{Determinator}}
* DragonAscendant: To Dr. Ferdinand, taking the latter's power for his own [[spoiler:after his demise]] and using it in far more inventive ways than the original user. For example, at one point he transforms two men into dinosaurs to make them obey him, and then he transforms the dinosaurs into ''dinosaur lamps''. [[http://bato.to/read/_/138471/jojos-bizarre-adventure-part-7-steel-ball-run_v97_ch68_by_jojo-project/5 He points out that they won't light up, though.]]
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:He reluctantly teams up with Hot Pants to take down Valentine.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Has the power to invoke this by turning himself and others into dinosaurs.
* EvilBrit: While he is very unfettered in getting his way and implied to have done nasty things to get to where he is, he is far more humane and sympathetic than the original Dio.
* {{Expy}}: Of Dio Brando, albeit slightly less evil, and much more sympathetic. He also looked much like Giorno as a child.
* GlasgowGrin: When he uses Scary Monsters in a more humanoid form.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:How the original Diego dies, as he's cut in half by a train.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Was originally opposed to Gyro and Johnny, and had even teamed up with Valentine, then decides to go against Valentine.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: Even when he (technically) sides with the heroes, it's mostly so that he could have the [[spoiler: Holy Corpse]] all to himself.
* LetThemDieHappy: [[spoiler:The original dies believing he defeated Valentine.]]
* NiceHat: Sports a stunningly fabulous one, with his name literally on it.
* NominalHero: [[spoiler:The first Deigo is in his own league of who to align himself with.]]
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Long-time [=JoJo=] fans might get a bit unnerved when they see Dio Brando ''playfully joke around'' with a Joestar and a Zeppeli.
* PowerIncontinence: At first, he doesn't have the greatest control over his dino shapeshifting.
* TheRival: Johnny's and Gyro's.
* ScaledUp: The power of Scary Monsters.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler: Technically, he did kill Valentine, three times no less, but doing so brought on a new Valentine with a new power.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid: While the Original Dio was an asshole since his birth, Diego turned evil only because of his father.

! [[spoiler: AU Diego "Dio" Brando (Stand: The World)]]

[[spoiler: Funny Valentine eventually uses his Stand to summon another Diego from an alternate universe, who has The World as a Stand to fight his enemies]].
-----

* AlternateUniverse: [[spoiler:He is an alternate Diego is brought into play by Valentine as a backup if he died. This Diego doesn't have Scary Monster as a Stand, but he does have ''[[OhCrap The World]]''.]]
* BrickJoke: [[spoiler:How is defeated by ''Lucy Steel'']].
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: [[spoiler:AU!Diego's version of the World is pretty much the same (in appearance) as the original Dio's, but it has "D"s where the original The World had hearts, and seems to be slimmer (the original The World was as muscular as Star Platinum, maybe even more)]].
* DragonAscendant: [[spoiler:The original was not Valentine's dragon, and in fact eventually opposed him, but this Diego is this to Valentine]].
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: The last enemy after Valentine death]].
* GrievousHarmWithABody: [[spoiler:AU Diego whacks Johnny with his own leg. He also gets killed by Lucy Steel when he uses the head of the original Diego against him.]]
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:AU!Diego shows up with '''''[[TimeStandsStill The World]]''''']]. There's also the fact that [[spoiler:he's just as much of a {{Jerkass}} as the original Dio]].
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: [[spoiler:AU Diego is defeated when Lucy brings him the head of the original Diego, causing the two to explode.]]
* YourHeadASplode: [[spoiler:How AU Diego meets his demise]].

! Mrs. Robinson
[[quoteleft:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrs_robinson.png]]
Don't let the name fool you. This character is actually a ''he'', and is always referred to as such. An outcast from a village after losing a duel and being left to die by being tied to a cactus. He's only interested in killing superior jockeys to claim the prize money for himself.
-----
* BadassNormal: Doesn't have a Stand, has a girlish name, can kick your ass regardless.
* TheBeastmaster: With beetles. Although, the less said about [[EyeScream *where* he raises and trains those beetles, the better]].
* CreepyCrossdresser: Definitely ''looks'' like a woman, if nothing else.
* FlechetteStorm: When attacking Gyro and Johnny, he has his beetles' movements set off the nearby cholla's needles. The beetles can quickly get out of the way, leading to the needles becoming a bullet fusillade.
* GenderBlenderName: Subverted; you'd expect one of the characters to make a comment about his unusual name. There isn't.

! Andre Boomboom (Stand: Tomb of the Boom 1)
[[quoteleft:251:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/andre_boom_boom.png]]
-----
* BloodyMurder: The point of his initial contact with Gyro and Johnny wasn't just to get fire to treat his lizard bite. It was also to get some of his blood on them for his Stand to start work with. His Stand, by the way, manipulates magnetism. Now, consider that blood contains iron...

! L.A. Boomboom (Stand: Tomb of the Boom 2)
[[quoteleft:241:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/l_a_boom_boom.png]]
-----
* TheDitz: He apparently inherited his uneven intellect from his mother. Unfortunately, [[AbusiveParents Benjamin]] and even Andre don't hold back from tearing into him for it, although Andre isn't nearly as brutal about it.
* DudeLooksLikeALady

! Benjamin Boomboom (Stand: Tomb of the Boom 3)
[[quoteleft:221:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/benjamin_boom_boom.png]]
-----
* AbusiveParents: You really have to feel bad for his sons. What with all the upbraiding he sends their way, ''especially'' to L.A.... And then there's intentionally ''shooting through Andre's own wound'' to get more blood on the heroes, ''and'' not really paying attention when it's clear Andre's starting to succumb to the lizard venom...
* {{Jerkass}}
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He can take advantage of his prosthetic iron jaw by using Tomb of the Boom to reshape it ''[[BodyHorror into]]'' his face and from there reshape his face into someone else's (e.g. Johnny Joestar's).

! Oyecomova (Stand: Boku no Rhythm wo Kiitekure[[note]]lit. "Listen to My Rhythm"[[/note]])
[[quoteleft:251:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oyecomova.png]]

An anti-monarchist from Naples, out to kill Gyro as part of a plot to destabilize the monarchy. His Stand, Boku no Rhythm wo Kiitekure ("Listen to My Rhythm"), allows him to attach grenade pins to anything in his vicinity. If not held down, whatever they're attached to will detonate.
-----
* HolierThanThou: Not as bad as Blackmore, but he tends to regard his terrorist deeds (and, for that matter, his Stand awakening) as God's will.
* RiverOfInsanity: At one point, he creates bombs attached to ''the surface of a river'' -- meaning there's nothing to apply pressure to keep them from popping. Gyro and Johnny have to implement an OutrunTheFireball plan, keeping their horses moving faster than the bombs can explode.
* SpamAttack: Have fun trying to disarm all those bombs before they go off...
* StickyBomb: Can create grenade pins with clock heads that can attach to anything and explode when pulled or let loose. [[BeeAfraid And]] [[RiverofInsanity we]] [[WhyAmITicking mean]] '''[[SmokeOut anything]]'''.
* WesternTerrorists: Oyecomova is rather determined to assassinate the King of Naples. He targets Zeppelli on account of how his winning would rally the people back behind the monarchy.

! Fritz von Stroheim
[[quoteleft:265:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fritz_von_stroheim.png]]
-----
* ArmCannon
* {{Expy}}: Of Rudolf von Stroheim.
* WesternTerrorists: Stated as one.

! Pork Pie Hat Kid (Stand: Wired)
[[quoteleft:216:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pork_pie_hat_kid.png]]

Pork Pie Hat actually seems to be his first name, being referred as such a number of times. A bizarre assailant who attacks Johnny and Gyro, seeking their Corpse Parts.
-----
* {{Expy}}: Of Pesci.
* ExtremeOmnivore: He likes the taste of ink, he wonders if his own teeth taste good...No wonder Wired's bound to his tongue.
* FunetikAksent: He has a problem pronouncing Johnny's name.
* {{Gonk}}: Once he loses the pipes on his head...ugh...
* HooksAndCrooks: Pork Pie Hats has to two hooked chains coming from his mouth which he can send through various objects to attack.
* VerticalKidnapping: Pork Pie Hat hooks his victims from above via falling feathers.
* WesternTerrorists: By now, it becomes clear to Gyro and Johnny that the terrorists are after one thing, the components of the Saint. Even if they have to kill to do it.

! Dr. Ferdinand (Stand: Scary Monsters)
[[quoteleft:236:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dr_ferdinand.png]]
-----
* TheBeastmaster: Well, first he has to transform other beings into at least partial utahraptors, but once ''that's'' done...
** He can also turn them into other dinosaurs, such a a bear into a T-rex and mice into some Compsognathus.
* BerserkButton: More calm than most other instances, but doing anything that looks even a ''little'' disrespectful to the ground is one very fast way to get on his bad side.
* {{Bishonen}}: To [[DudeLooksLikeALady insane]] levels.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Once Scary Monsters is disengaged, it turns out it was at the worst possible time for Ferdinand, because the two utahraptors nearest to him had originally been ''mountain lions''. Unhappy mountain lions, at that. Cue one savage mauling.
* InsaneTrollLogic: He seems to think that the dinosaurs died out because they disrespected the environment.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: If Scary Monsters affects you, and you're not holding a piece of the Saint's corpse, you get to look forward to becoming part utahraptor.
* ScaledUp: The power of Scary Monsters.
* WesternTerrorists: Willing to turn an entire town into dinosaurs in order to carry out his goals.

! Ringo Roadagain (Stand: Mandom)
[[quoteleft:165:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ringo_roadagain_8.png]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/HirokiYasumoto (''All-Star Battle'')

A man who lives in the woods along the Steel Ball Run course. He seeks to duel those who come his way in order to purge himself of fear and uncertainty. His Stand, Mandom, lets him rewind time by six seconds, leaving everyone with the memory of what happened in those seconds.
-----
* AffablyEvil: He's very polite, willing to let Gyro without any hidden agendas, and a very honest and honorable warrior.
* BadassBaritone: His voice in All-Star Battle is very deep and smooth, fitting his calm and purposeful behavior.
* BadassBeard: His goatee is shaped like a skull. He's just that awesome.
* BloodKnight: Pretty obliquely, though. He intentionally gets those in his orchard bound into Mandom's effect so they grow desperate enough to kill him. He believes that if he engages in duels only with those who seek only his death, with no spite or the like involved, his spirit will be purified of uncertainty, and he'll grow ever more useful to humanity.
* TheCameo: He's in charge of Versus mode in ''All-Star Battle'', bringing his ideal of fair play with him.
* DeathSeeker: Seeks death to be purified of uncertainty to be useful to humanity.
* ExplainingYourPowersToTheEnemy: As per his ideals of honorable combat, he insists that both sides know exactly what the other is capable of before the fight starts.
* GoOutWithASmile: Because he clears all chance and doubt from his fights, he dies ''knowing'' his killer was the better fighter, exactly what he wanted.
* GroundhogDayLoop: Only six seconds worth, and they have to be spaced out by at least a minute. But everyone gets to react to what they know will happen in those six seconds.
* TheGunslinger: Type D, the Quick Draw. Goes hand in hand with his power. By his being able to turn ambushes into a moot point, the only thing left you can do is go head to head with a man who can quite clearly out shoot you, nor flinch in the slightest, due to his DeathSeeker tendencies.
* HonorBeforeReason: Good news: He explains ''everything'' that could be a factor in a fight. He's purifying ''chance'' out of his duels.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Possibly of Creator/CharlesBronson.
* RapeAsDrama: Well, almost raped by a vagrant murderer who'd already killed the rest of his family. "Almost" because of Mandom's power. Basically, the threat of rape was what awakened Mandom.
* TimeMaster: And, oddly for [=JoJo=], he's not the main antagonist even though he has this sort of power.

! Blackmore (Stand: Catch the Rainbow)
[[quoteleft:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blackmore.png]]

One of Funny Valentine's assistants, sent to find who intercepted a carrier pigeon whose message contained the location of a Corpse Part. His Stand, Catch the Rainbow, gives him near-complete control of his body in the rain.
-----

* APlagueInBothYourHouses: Dies while cursing Johnny, Gyro and Lucy and calling them sinners.
* TheAtoner: After seeing Jesus, his actions are the result of trying to atone for even thinking about betraying Valentine.
* DetachmentCombat: He can detach his body parts. He mainly uses his mouth to bite and intimidate via speech.
* TheEeyore: Acts like this, consantly apologizing and looking sad, although when he gets going...
* HazardousWater: He can manipulate raindrops into platforms, blades, bandages, etc.
* HolierThanThou: Once he [[spoiler:sees a vision of Jesus in connection with the pieces of the Corpse]], he gets ''really'' bad when it comes to confronting the heroes.
* LivingOnBorrowedTime: He uses rain to fill the wounds caused by him geting shot by Lucy, but he knows that at the moment it stops raining, he wounds will open and he will die.
* ScaryCompetentTracker: He discovers Lucy and Mountain Tim in a blink. He is way more observant than the average president underling.
* SituationalSword: Catch The Rainbow only works if it is raining.
* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: His dialogue is... broken... up in a... very odd manner.
* SwissArmySuperpower: Catch The Rainbow has an amazingly versatile set of abilities, perhaps one of the more versatile in the entire manga. Catch is, it only works when it's raining.
* VerbalTic: "Im so-rry".
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Although he creates it using his Stand, meaning it's InvisibleToNormals.
* WouldHitAGirl: He had every intent to kill Lucy Steel.

! The Eleven Riders (Stand: Tatoo You!)
[[quoteleft:245:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eleven_men.PNG]]

Eleven nameless men, sent by Funny Valentine to retrieve the Corpse Parts from Johnny and Gyro. They share a Stand, Tatoo You!, which allows them to travel between each other's bodies, even if some of their number are dead.
-----
* HiveMind
* IAmLegion
* {{MIB}}
* NoNameGiven: To the point another name some fans use for them is "Eleven Nameless Men".
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In the original Japanese, the Stand's name is indeed written "TATOO YOU!"

! Mike O. (Stand: Tubular Bells)
[[quoteleft:231:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mike_o.png]]
-----
* TheBeastmaster: An interesting sort, in that his breath transforms pieces of metal into balloon animals that act like their real-life counterparts.
* TheDragon: If only because he's the White House's head of security.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: His stand turns nails into balloon animals. The things he can pull off with this border cringeworthy, at times.
* MonsterClown: Is dressed in a flamboyantly poofy and spikey outfit and wears face paint that make him look more like a court jester than the president's top bodyguard. It certainly fits his ability to create deadly balloon animals.
* YourHeadASplode: [[spoiler:What happens when Hot Pants makes it impossible for Mike to properly exhale Tubular Bells.]]

! Wekapipo
[[quoteleft:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wekapipo.png]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/KenNarita (''All-Star Battle'')
-----
* BadassNormal: Wekapipo lacks a Stand entirely. His ability Wrecking Ball is just a variant of the Zeppeli family's Steel Ball techniques.
* TheCameo: A pre-match effect in Campaign mode in ''All-Star Battle'', he uses Wrecking Ball to weaken your opponent.
* CynicismCatalyst: The death of his sister triggers this. [[spoiler:He gets better when it is revealed that Gyro's father is protecting her]].
* {{Expy}}: [[spoiler:He has a connection to Zeppeli/Gyro, knows some Hamon/Spin techniques, joins the heroes, and is ultimately offed by Dio/Diego. Kinda like Dire. On the other hand, his backstory and the fact that he pulls a HeelFaceTurn after being misguided by his hatred also makes him comparable to Polnareff.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler: You know how Funny Valentine can trigger a NeverTheSelvesShallMeet? He does it to Wekapipo. Valentine traps Diego in another dimension with the intent to kill him, but Diego quickly realizes how [=D4C=] works (allowing things to travel between dimensions when they get caught between two things) so Diego gets himself stuck between ''the two Wekapipos'']].
* HeelFaceTurn
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:On figuring out that Gyro can use the wolf corpse to calculate the Golden Rectangle, he buries it under the ice with Wrecking Ball... which throws ice chips and melted water into the air. Given the freezing temperatures, they immediately become ''snow'', which Gyro promptly uses to work out the Rectangle and defeat Wekapipo.]]

! Magent Magent (Stand: 20th Century Boy)
[[quoteleft:236:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/magent_magent_9.png]]
-----
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:His final confrontation with Diego and Wekapipo forces him to activate 20th Century Boy underwater. Far underwater. And 20th Century Boy's aegis extends to not letting him drown. Since no one can find him there, and deactivating his Stand will kill him, and it won't let him do that, he's now an underwater edition of Kars/Anubis.]]
* EyeScream: Try to remember that what goes up must come down, next time!
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: [[spoiler:Much like Kars, Magent Magent's brain stops working after an unspecified but presumably lengthy period of being trapped underwater.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Being forced into activating his own stand leads to his imprisonment at the bottom of the sea.]]
* NighInvulnerable: Magent Magent can wear 20th Century Boy to become this, with the added side-effect that it renders him completely immobile as well. [[spoiler:This comes back to bite him, as he is trapped underwater and unable to move presumably forever until his mind breaks down.]]
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He appears to be based on Marc Bolan of T. Rex fame. His stand name supports this.
* NoIndoorVoice: Although we can't hear his voice per say, the translation team assures us that due to the way his speech is written in Japanese that he sounds like "a more coherent Donald Duck or a male Fran Drescher".
* NoseNuggets: Magent Magent is...''disgusting''. His nose is constantly running, and while that can be attributed to the cold weather when he sneezes into his hands he ''licks up the snot''.
* RepetitiveName
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Many people translated his name as "Magenta Magenta", as his namesake is a SOUL'd OUT song by that name; however, the Japanese translation of his name doesn't have an A at the end.

! Axl RO (Stand: Civil War)
[[quoteleft:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/axl_ro.png]]
-----
* ShapeshifterGuiltTrip: Manifests and brings to life objects the victim feels guilt over. This includes the Stand owner, who can actually bring himself back to life if he's killed by someone who feels any form of guilt over his death
* SurvivorGuilt: The basis of Civil War's power. Also Axl's backstory as a Civil War lookout who failed to warn a town of an incoming army.
* ThanatosGambit: Willingly lets himself be killed to force his own personal guilt onto his foe. [[spoiler:Ends up being HoistByHisOwnPetard when Johnny uses his own ThanatosGambit to return Axl's personal guilt back onto himself.]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: Clean water forces the objects summoned by Civil War to leave their victims.

! D-I-S-C-O (Stand: Chocolate Disco)
[[quoteleft:249:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d_i_s_c_o_9.png]]
-----
* HomingProjectile: Chocolate Disco allows D-I-S-C-O to do this with everything, from nails to acid. Unfortunately for D-I-S-C-O, the [=JoJoverse=] works on HeartIsAnAwesomePower and PhysicsGoof.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Lasts two chapters, only to serve as a distraction to Gyro. The only time he speaks is to give the name of his stand. The rest is D-I-S-C-O getting [[CurbstompBattle curb-stomped]] by Gyro.

* Decoy Protagonist: Flip flopped, due to his namesake, readers may assume Johnny is the protagonist of the story. But according to Word of God, Gyro was originally written in the early parts of Steel Ball Run to be the protagonist. However, midway through the story Johnny starts to take more and more of a traditional protagonist role.

* NonindicativeName: Minor, the chapter 'The Desert-Born Outlaws' shows us his steel balls are actually made of iron. Presumbly it's the shape that allows him to conduct the Spin through them, since every iteration of the "steel balls" that he makes after losing or destroying a pair of them bear the same design on their surface.

A genius racer from England. After his mother died due to terrible treatment while working in hellish Victorian England, he bitterly vowed to achieve the top place in society. After grabbing a hold of [[spoiler: one of the Corpse's eyes]], he eventually gains Scary Monster as a Stand, which allows him to turn himself and others into dinosaurs. [[spoiler: Funny Valentine eventually uses his Stand to summon another Diego from an alternate universe, who has The World as a Stand to fight his enemies]].

* AntiVillain: Unlike the main universe one, Diego was portrayed as a sinister yet still tragic figure wanting to have his existence acknowledged; it may be hard to call him a good guy, but his goals and actions eventually line up with the heroic side. [[spoiler:Alternate Diego, on the other hand, is closer to the [[JerkAss original]] in personality]].
