** In addition, although Part 5 is also wildly popular in Japan, getting its own video game adaptation and being the most popular among the {{Doujinshi}} community, many non-Japanese fans actually regard it as one of the worst ones and see it as plagued by a large number of problems, such as excessive MonsterOfTheWeek fighting, a [[SupportingProtagonist bland and uninteresting protagonist]] (though poor English translations may be partly to blame), careless [[DroppedABridgeOnHim dropping of bridges]] and established abilities, and an ending that reeks of DeusExMachina, even by [=JoJo=] standards.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Unlike [[SoBadItsGood Part 4's Duwang scans]], Part 5's not as well received since it watered down the characterizations of the cast and made the overall dialogue bland and near-incomprehensible. Giorno gets hit hard the worst, causing him to be very polarizing among many English-speaking fans.

** Part 5, sort of. Thanks to a proper translation, many people have begun appreciating the Part and see its initial reception as undeserved.

** A common complaint with Part 4 is that some of the story arcs prior to [[BreakoutCharacter Rohan's appearance]] go on for far too long and that it doesn't GrowTheBeard until Kira appears. To top it off, Part 4 is the longest [=JoJo=] part that is published on a weekly magazine.

** The 1993 OVA of ''Stardust Crusaders'', which started InMediasRes and was a CompressedAdaptation that cut out most of the fights and humor of the original. Did it [[AdaptationDecay butcher the source material]] by taking out what made it popular in the first place? Or is it entertaining FanService to manga fans who just want to see their favorite fights animated? Are the changes to some of the fights and Dio's character design an improvement or do they make things worse? Or is it all just SoOkayItsAverage and only worthwhile for serious fans?

** Joshuu from part 8, due to him being a petulant, entitled and self-absorbed brat, who's consistently an asshole to the main character and almost takes advantage of Yasuho when she's under the effects of Tsurugi's stand. Most fans admit his Stand power is pretty cool, but it does little to quell the animosity since the character proper is so unlikable.

He is slowly becoming better received due to the recent chapters, with people finding his stupidity amusing.

* FoodPorn: Pops up often, especially in Part 4. Yoshikage Kira/[[spoiler: Kosaku Kawajiri]]'s [[http://aidoru-ojisan.tumblr.com/post/150512011602 cooking]] is given a lot of detail in the anime, with soft music and lots of close-ups to empasize how mouth-watering it is. But then you remember [[{{SerialKiller}} why he's so good with knives]]...



*** As of recently there have been many JJBA fans who are also fans of ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' which has a similar tone to JJBA and the author was even inspired by the JJBA franchise. Due to the similar tones that combine over the top humor, characters, and action with some serious dramatic moments some have even seen ''Assassination Classroom'' as a SpiritualSuccessor to JJBA now that JJBA no longer runs in Shonen Jump.

It helps that Mr. Matsui, the creator, actually did a few cooking videos with Hirohiko Araki, although they were on a Japanese-only site that has since pulled them down. Only the promos (and a brief comic by Matsui about meeting his idol) remain.


Added DiffLines:

** A lot of fans also seem to be into either ''{{WesternAnimation/Spongebob Squarepants}}'' and/or ''{{Television/Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia}}'', judging by the large quantity of crossover memes.

*** When Creator/VizMedia announced that they would release the first season of the anime on Blu-Ray (Warner Bros. still own the rights to distribute the show on DVD), they stated that the release would include an english dub... but didn't specify whether it would be the same english dub from Warner's DVD release or a brand new english dub, leading to debates on whether Viz should actually bother redubbing the first season or simply include the Warner Bros. english dub.

** Yoshikage Kira seems to be the most popular main antagonists after Dio despite his first appearance being halfway into Part 4.

** Yoshikage Kira seems to be the most popular main antagonists after Dio despite his first appearance being halfway into Part 4. His stand, Killer Queen, is also a fan favorite among stands designs and powers. [[spoiler: The fact both characters ([[AlternateContinuity kinda]]) appear in Jojolion doesn't hurt]].

Added DiffLines:

** With some exceptions, Stands are just mindless automatons. Fans love to give them a personality, like Killer Queen acting like a cat, or The World being Jonathan mindless spirit. In fact, some fans even like to portray King Crimson as the true villain of Part 5, being a Stand that gained control of its user, like Anubis. It helps that Diavolo backstory is pretty ambiguous.

** Kakyoin has it big in Japan, where he's been paired up with all the crusaders (including Jotaro from future time periods and Joseph in his younger years), [[FoeYay Dio, Terence D'Arby]], [[LikesOlderWomen Holly]], [[ScrewYourself himself]], Stands, [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight to even characters he's never met]] like Caesar, Lisa Lisa, or Josuke. [[CrackPairing To the truely bizzare]] such as Kars, Diego, or Kira.
