*** [[Creator/TakahiroSakurai Rohan's new anime voice actor]] also previous voiced Bucciarati in the Part 5 [=PS2=] game; which apparently can easily be fitting in that both Rohan and Bucciarati have fought against their arc's respective protagonists at one time (with rather serious intent) while also ending up as one of their closest allies down the line. Both of them have also died at least once.

** Rohan Kishibe and Yoshikage Kira's new voice actors in the anime both played [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Griffith]]. They are also [[VideoGame/FInalFantasyVII Cloud and Sephiroth]], making their interactions (which are very little) funnier.

*** In regards to ''VideoGame/Persona4'', both Creator/RomiPark and Creator/DaisukeNamikawa have respectively voiced Giorno in the [=PS2=] game and in ''All-Star Battle'' onwards; cue ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' where both characters Park and Namikawa voice happen to voice characters who fight with similar avatar/FightingSpirit-summoning mechanics ''just like in the [=JoJo=] fighting games''.

Not helping matters is that recently there's also Creator/ShowtaroMorikubo (as Yosuke and Akira Otoishi), Creator/TakehitoKoyasu (as Dio and [[Anime/PersonaTrinitySoul Ryo Kanzato]]), Creator/MiyukiSawashiro (Jolyne and Elizabeth/Chidori/Jun Kanzato) and several other VA's in the mix between both ''[=JoJo=]'' and ''Persona'' in general.

** [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart3 Kakyoin]] is voiced by Creator/DaisukeHirakawa, who plays [[SchoolDays Makoto Itou]], [[spoiler:who also ends up killed by [[NamesTheSame Sekai]]]]. In All Star Battle, he's voiced by Creator/KojiYusa, aka [[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog]] (cue the Emerald motif). Now, remind me who voices [[Creator/DaisukeOno Silver the Hedgehog]] again?

** ZUN, the creator ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', is an admitted fanboy of JJBA, and as such there are several references within his games. Most notable is Sakuya Izayoi, who references DIO in both her [[TimeStandsStill powers]] and [[KnifeNut weapons of choice]], as well as her association with vampires. Additionally the kanji for Touhou (東方) are the same as the ones used in Josuke's family name; and in a few fanworks, three-to-four voice actresses who have voiced characters in them also voiced JJBA characters as of ''All Star Battle'' (including Sakuya's Japanese VA in ''VideoGame/KoumajouDensetsu'', Creator/MiyukiSawashiro).

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/DaisukeOno doubles as both this and PromotedFanboy since he stated that ''[=JoJo=]'' was what got him into voice acting in the first place; speed up to ''All-Star Battle'' where his dream came true of being able to voice one of the main iconic characters.

** Creator/KappeiYamaguchi's role as Shigechi goes a little bit meta if you take into account he's the official dub voice of ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunny'' in Japan and his stand(s) Harvest are shaped like ''bugs''.

Not helping this is that Okuyasu's voice is Creator/WataruTakagi, the official dub voice for ''WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck''.

*** Joseph's constant complaints about having to fly to Japan to visit his family and having to do things the Japanese way while there are likely a reference to this.



** Apparently in Part 3, Avdol was going to stay dead and [[HeelFaceTurn Hol Horse would join up with the heroes]] and replace him. However due to Avdol's surprising popularity, as well as Araki realizing that Hol Horse was already very similar to Polnareff, his death was changed and Hol Horse remained a villain.
** The new universe that Part 7 and beyond take place in partially runs on this, with [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of prior characters often doing things that Araki would have liked to do with the original parts. For example, Part 7's BuddyPicture nature forms from Araki wishing he could have done more with the Joestar-Zeppeli relationships.

** Araki said that he initially wanted to make Lisa Lisa's design more realistic (presumably for the 50-year-old woman she was), but his editor prevented it [[SexSells for some reason]].


Added DiffLines:

* The "Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe" spin-offs were originally intended to not be related at all to the series. It was even forgotten to include an already existing character. However, Araki then decided to include Rohan anyway, thus tying these one-shots to Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

* FanTranslation: The ''Stardust Crusaders'' RPG for the SuperFamicom has one by the Aeon Genesis group. Several exist for the manga itself, as well.

Added DiffLines:

** Kazuma Kaneko, Co-creator of the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series is a big fan of Araki's work. This is partly what lead to the creation of the now famous ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' subseries. This also run in reverse as well with Araki being a fan of Kaneko's art as well.
