* TropesAreNotBad: Explains why the anime revival is one of the most well-received anime TV series in recent years. Yes the entire franchise is basically a ClicheStorm of both shounen and media tropes but its done with such a strong sense of self-awareness that its refreshing. A lot of praise for the franchise comes from the fact that it is able to be an action-epic while embracing its own campiness. For a lot of people this has made it the antithesis to other popular shounen like ''{{Franchise/Naruto}}'' which lost sight of what made them enjoyable in the first place or series like ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' and ''Manga/FutureDiary'' which are widely criticized for trying to combine shounen tropes with grimdark storytelling.

** [[BadassAdorable Foo Fighters]], to the point that she was one of the most requested DLC characters for All-Star Battle and the most common complaint about ''[[VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureEyesOfHeaven Eyes of Heaven]]'' is that she's not in it.
** At least in the English-speaking fandom, Ringo Roadagain is the subject of a great deal of awe, respect, and adulation.

she doesn't have any major appearances.
** At least in the English-speaking fandom, Ringo Roadagain is the subject of a great deal of awe, respect, and adulation. He was even intended to be playable in ''[[VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureEyesOfHeaven Eyes of Heaven]]'' but [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the idea was scrapped]].

** In Part 4, the plot needs Jotaro to pass the torch to Josuke and become a more vulnerable character, so it has Angelo and other villains know about a [[StoryBreakerPower certain little trick]] he learned to do at the end of Part 3. However, it's never explained how they figured out such a huge secret. Especially when you remember Jotaro himself said that, for whatever reason, he never used that power between the battle against DIO and his arrival to Morioh.

* AwesomeArt: While every part has its fair share, Steel Ball Run shows a noticeable increase in quality after the series was changed from a weekly to a monthly release, to the point that it exhibits some of the most beautiful art in recent manga history. The super-detailed "DIO's World" arc qualifies as well.

* FreudWasRight:
** Quite a few examples, but the most egregious probably being the overwhelming subtext in Pucci's flashbacks of Dio.
---> "Do you believe in ''gravity'', Enrico?"
** Kakyoin's habit of rolling cherries around his tongue. If only cherries didn't symbolize womanhood and femininity.
** Also, Dio Brando's bone.

** According to Hirohiko Araki, many fans were not on-board with the shift from Hamon to Stands when the latter were first introduced. It goes without saying that [[PopularityPolynomial this changed quickly in subsequent years]], as the element is known to be one of the features of ''[=JoJo=]'' that help it stand out from other action manga.

** Okuyasu is remembered as [[IdiotHero the guy]] who never used [[PortalCut his]] [[StoryBreakerPower Stand]] to the best of its abilities.

** Okuyasu is remembered as [[IdiotHero the guy]] who never used [[PortalCut his]] [[StoryBreakerPower Stand]] to the best of its abilities. That said however he does at the end to defeat Kira and it makes Kira's chances of winning go from really high to almost nothing in an instant.

* CrazyAwesome:
** The whole series. This ''is'' a manga which turned ''RockPaperScissors'' into an actual power and then used it for an epic battle to boot, complete with air jousting. Then there was that life-or-death game of catch in Part 6.
** Among the protagonists, Joseph Joestar in Part 2, defeating his opponents by weaponizing sheer audacity. [[{{Camp}} Part 2 in general as a whole seems to run exclusively on this trope]] moreso than any of the others.
** One of the most intense and nail-biting battles in the entire series has not a single punch being thrown, instead being settled with '''''a game of poker'''''. This battle is so iconic, it even provides the page image for the AbsurdlyHighStakesGame trope!
