Hirohiko Araki (born Toshiyuki Araki), is the legendary manga-ka behind ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', one of the longest-running manga series ever, running continuously from 1987 to date. He is well-known for his distinctive (read: FABULOUS!) art style, incredibly clever fights, use of strange character poses, and the fact [[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/343/315/b9c.jpg he never ages]]. He's also [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/symmetricalaraki.jpg almost perfectly symmetrical]].

Other works by Hirohiko Araki:
* Buso Poker (1980)
* Autoto Man (1982)
* Virginia ni Yohroshiku (1982)
* Manga/MagicBoyBT (魔少年ビーティー mashōnen bītī 19821983)
* Manga/{{Baoh}} (19841985)
* Gorgeous Irene (19851986)
** The Story of the Girl's Mansion (1985)
** The Girl That Came to the Slums (1986)
* The Lives of Eccentrics (2004)

''[=JoJo=]'' spinoffs
* Under Execution, Under Jailbreak (1999)
* Dolce and His Master (1999)
* Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe. Episode 16: At a Confessional (1999)
* Dead Man's Questions (1999)
* Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe - Mutsukabezaka (2006)
* Front cover of Cell (scientific journal) (September 7, 2007): Imagine that chemicals were stands. Apparently, the scientist who discovered that SCRAPPER blocks [=RIM1alpha=] was a big JJBA fan.
* Rohan at the Louvre (2010)
* Rohan da Gucci (2011)
* Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe. Episode 5: Village of Millionaires (2012)
* Jolyne, Fly High with Gucci (2013)
* Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe. Episode 6: Poaching Coast (2013)
* Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe. Episode 4: Mochizuki Family Moon Viewing (2014)

!!Tropes common in Araki's works beyond JJBA:
* AnyoneCanDie: To the point where he commonly crosses into WeHaveReserves territory.
* ArtEvolution: One of the most prominent examples.
* CloudCuckoolander
* CostumePorn: Even for historical figures!
* {{Gonk}}: Especially short fat people.
* KickTheDog: Almost literally, evil is frequently shown as something that likes to kill dogs or other animals.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He was born in 1960. There's a reason why fans think that Araki is immortal.
* WeHaveReserves: This seems to be an intergral part of his writing style. No shonen mangaka has killed off as many characters as him.
