** YouTube "Top Ten" Creator WebVideo/TheQuarterGuy has been a huge fan of JJBA for a long time frequently referencing the Dio steamroller special from the Capcom game in his videos as well as making countless references to the anime.



* ''[=JoJo's=] Bizarre Adventure''. It is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. ''Everything'' in this series is just mindblowingly bizarre. From the cyborg Nazi guy whose looks inspired [[Franchise/StreetFighter Guile]], to the timestopping vampire who is also TheCasanova, to the vampires who eat other vampires, to the PsychicPowers which can have the most ridiculously specific abilities, to the [[AnimeHair ridiculous hairstyles]] and the fabulous clothing.
** And there's a 16-year-old who has a 30-year-old nephew because his father was in his fifties when he was conceived. That's before we even get into where Giorno Giovanna fits into the Joestar family: Giorno is Dio's son, conceived after Dio stole Jonathan's body, which makes Jonathan Giorno's biological father. This makes Giorno ''Joseph's'' uncle. Note that Joseph is in his eighties by the time Part 5 starts and Giorno is ''fifteen''. ''No'' series can top this one when it comes to sheer [=WTFness=].
** By sheer nature of his never having been human, no villain can top Kars for [=WTFness=]. (Except perhaps an out-of-it Pucci in one particular chapter.) Of course, this also applies to just about any other series as well. The stuff he could do, simply unreal!
* But the most bizarre thing is the mangaka himself -- he hasn't aged a day in over 20 years (either that, or he's aging backwards). Recent photographs show him looking ''younger'' than he did when he started on ''Phantom Blood''...back in 1986.

** Fugo was originally planned to be TheMole for the Boss in ''Part 5'' with Giorno killing him as a result but Araki found the idea too heartbreaking.

** Fugo was originally planned to be TheMole for the Boss in ''Part 5'' with Giorno killing him as a result but Araki found the idea too heartbreaking. Some fans suspect that Cioccolata, with his [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute flesh-devouring mold stand]] and appearance as one of the final enemies in Part 5 before the Boss is faced (as well as receiving the longest NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from Giorno), were conceived to replace Araki's planned ideas for Fugo.

** 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.

*** In addition, many fans speculated at the time that, had Toonami licensed the show, they would've skipped the ''Phantom Blood'' and ''Battle Tendency'' parts in favor of starting with ''Stardust Crusaders''. When the show eventually premiered, Toonami instead opted to start at the beginning with ''Phantom Blood''.

** 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]].

** Many fans first became familiar with the series due to the Capcom fighting game which came about during a time when the manga wasn't released in the west yet.
