! Josuke Higashikata (Stand: Crazy Diamond)
->Voiced by: Creator/WataruHatano (''All-Star Battle'' and ''Eyes of Heaven'')

The illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar. Josuke is known for his unique hairstyle and fierce temper regarding said hair. His adventures started when Jotaro tracked him down and informed him that he was Joseph's son and warned him about the deadly Stand user Angelo, who killed his grandfather shortly after the start of the story. Following that, he is pulled into the search for the serial killer that threatens Morioh-cho.

His Stand is Crazy Diamond, which allows Josuke to repair objects as he sees fit. This can be applied in several ways, including healing wounds, breaking two objects and combining them into one, and reducing something to its original components.

Note that going with the ThemeNaming of [=JoJo=], the second kanji in his first name, can also be read as "jo," as well as that his proper name would be Josuke Joestar.

His stand is named after the Music/PinkFloyd composition [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zACEJdFOpA&feature=kp "Shine on you Crazy Diamond."]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Much like his father in his younger days, [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/148147/jojos-bizarre-adventure-part-4-diamond-is-unbreakable_v41_ch388_by_the-invincible-trio/4 he's a big dork]].
* AndIMustScream: Usually what he does to enemies he ''doesn't'' befriend.
* AnimeHair: His epic pompadour.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBaritone: He has a rather deep voice in ''All-Star Battle''.
** BadassFamily
* BerserkButton:
** Never make fun of his hair, unless you want your face to literally be rearranged. This gets to the point of Josuke being driven literally ''blind with rage'', preventing Heaven's Door from affecting him.
** Also, never mess with his mom. Angelo and Terunosuke have learnt this [[AndIMustScream the hard way]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He will not, under any circumstance, kill you. But he will hurt you ''a lot'' if you piss him off.
* ButNotTooForeign: He's half Japanese and half British.
* ChickMagnet: Like those in the Joestar line, though he's not nearly as bitter about it as Jotaro.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Even more prominent when you actually have the protagonist of the last part in the new one as well. From their first meeting alone, Josuke is a visibly far more relaxed and friendlier individual than Jotaro ever will be. As a result, Josuke [[DefeatMeansFriendship befriends]] and gets along with people that Jotaro never could, like people with rotten personalities and his own silly mother. Josuke is also flightier and more prone to getting involved in silly antics and convoluted schemes than his StraightMan nephew. On the other hand...
** NotSoDifferent: Josuke also has a ''lot'' of the traits that Jotaro had when he was a delinquent himself; Same attachment to their favorite head ornaments ([[DelinquentHair hair]] and [[NiceHat hat]] respectively), same disregard for rules that inconvenience them, same lack of father figure in their lives, same intense sense of justice and loyalty to their friends, and same explosive attitude. This also extends to Josuke and his father Joseph, despite Josuke's initial hangups. Both of them are the goofiest and most personable Joestars to date.
* CruelMercy / IronicHell:
** After defeating Angelo, [[spoiler:he used Crazy Diamond to fuse him with a rock, and then he slapped a sign on him that read: "Please leave your doggy's waste in front of the rock". Angelo really hated doggy waste.]]
** When faced with Yuuya Fungami, then bed-ridden villain and pathetically begging "you wouldn't bully a weak and helpless cripple now, would you?", Josuke ''healed him back to pristine health'' with Crazy Diamond, and THEN:
--> Josuke: [[HarmfulHealing The way I see it, if I make you well again,]] [[InsaneTrollLogic and]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown [=THEN=] kick your ass, I won't be "bullying the weak" then,]] '''''[[ToThePain now will I?]]''''' [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown DORA!! Dorararararararararara! DORAAAAA!!!]]
** After coming back from being turned into a paper, he [[spoiler:turned Terunosuke into a book]].
* CombatMedic: His Stand, Crazy Diamond, is almost on par with Jotaro's Star Platinum when it comes to melee combat; it's also one of the rare instances where the healing power itself doubles as an offensive measure.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: To a ridiculous extent. Almost everyone he faces ends up becoming his ally.
* DubNameChange: The English release of ''All Star Battle'' renames his Stand to "Shining Diamond" to avoid copyright problems with PinkFloyd (The reference is still there but more subtle).
* {{Expy}}: Before Araki changed his art style to resemble ''"Fist of the North Star"'' less, there'd be some shots of him where you'd be most forgiven for thinking that he was related to Kenshiro. His personality of absolute kindness (Crazy Diamond being proof of his wish to protect everyone) screams [[PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madoka Kamane]]...[[BerserkButton as long as you don't mock his hair,]] or [[TheGamblingAddict let him near any Pachinko machines.]]
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet: Crazy Diamond.
* TheGamblingAddict: Ask the pachinko owner. He also demonstrates this when trying to get extra money for the summer from Rohan.
* GenreBlind: Joseph tells Josuke that a Stand is suddenly turning the immediate area around a baby they found invisible. Josuke assumes he's senile. This can be a bit frustrating to a reader who has just finished ''Stardust Crusaders'', where the characters would immediately assume [[ProperlyParanoid anything even a little out of the ordinary was the work of a Stand]].
** However, this is the only time Josuke acts this way, and only because he was under the, mostly correct, impression that Joseph was senile. Otherwise, he reacts the same way the Stardust crusaders do: Realizing it's a stand after three or four obvious attacks.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Crazy Diamond is capable of restoring almost anything, including living beings, to their original state. This eventually gets used for healing some [[MadeOfPlasticine seriously messy injuries]]. However...
** NoSelfBuffs: ...to prevent him from becoming NighInvulnerable, Josuke is incapable of using Crazy Diamond's healing powers on himself.
* HeroicBastard: Joseph's illegitimate son. Joseph was sixty-five at the time, meaning Josuke is actually ''younger'' than his nephew, Jotaro.
* HonorBeforeReason: Good heart be blamed, as he took this trait to absurd levels! And it backfired on him on several occasions, [[spoiler:but his positive LaserGuidedKarma always triggered during those moments.]]
* InSeriesNickName: [=JoJo=].
* JapaneseDelinquents: Partially subverted. He looks like one thanks to his [[SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack perpetual uniform]] and his characteristic pompadour, but personality-wise is mostly the opposite [[BerserkButton provided said pompadour is not even remotely insulted]].
** Taken UpToEleven in All Star Battle, where Crazy Diamond's VA sounds like he is outright ''screaming'' into the microphone.
* NiceGuy: Well, [[BewareTheNiceOnes most of the time]]. He ''is'' one of the nicer [=JoJos=] in the series.
* OddNameOut: The "[=JoJo=]" ThemeNaming isn't as obvious in Josuke's name as it is in the others.
* PersonalityPowers: As Jotaro discovered, the nature of Josuke's stand is a reflection of his good heart and desire to help those around him.
-->'''Jotaro:''' ''Humans thrive on the destruction of others. But among them, there's you, and your power is the kindest, most generous ability one could ever have.''
* PowerIncontinence: If Josuke is distracted or angry, things tend to look really weird when he repairs them.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Okuyasu's Red.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler: Of sorts. While Kira manages to kill the rest of the group with Bites The Dust, Josuke manages to avoid it and thus save the others just by oversleeping and not getting to Kira's house on-time (though Hayato calling him so that he shows up before the GroundhogDayLoop kicks in plays a part as well.)]]
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Resembles Jotaro.
* SwissArmySuperpower: His ingenuity allows him to use his power to repair (and rearrange) things in plenty of creative ways.
* SymbolMotifClothing: Hearts.
* ThouShallNotKill: Notable for being the only [=JoJo=] [[spoiler:of the original timeline]] who doesn't kill a single person (except some Stand-using rats). He even went to great lengths to save the life of some of his foes.
** However, he does inflict many a FateWorseThanDeath on the more evil foes, multiple times going into AndIMustScream territory.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Turtles?]]: Averted. He is first seen confronting his fear by trying to touch a turtle; this is the only time he ever encounters one, it poses no obstacle to him whatsoever, and he even heals it after its shell gets shattered by some local thugs. Not that this stops him from getting spooked again by it shortly afterwards.
* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Grandfather]]: He eventually gets to punish Angelo for what he did.
* YoureNotMyFather: He was initially cold and indifferent to Joseph's attempts to be a father to him, and angrily tells the old man to not even bother trying after being absent all his life. In Joseph's defence, he was never told about the boy's existence; and when Josuke saw just ''how'' sincere he was about wanting to be a loving and strong father-figure, he finally comes to respect and love him in return.
* ZanyScheme: He managed to pull a couple of ingenious and successful money-making ploys... [[HilarityEnsues but not without incidents.]]

! Jotaro Kujo (Stand: Star Platinum)

See [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart3 part 3]]

! Koichi Hirose (Stand: Echoes)
->Voiced by: Creator/RomiPark (''All-Star Battle''), Creator/RioNatsuki (''Vento Aureo'' video game)

A schoolmate of Josuke's. He led a perfectly normal, boring life until he was pierced by the Stand Arrow. While he was too weak for it to work and was fatally wounded, Josuke healed him with Crazy Diamond, allowing him to eventually use the Stand granted to him by the Arrow.

Koichi uses a sound-based Stand named Echoes which comes in several "Acts", each with a different power set. He can only use one version of Echoes at a time.
* AnimeHair: Starts off with long slicked back hair, then cuts his hair into a flat top to get rid of Yukako's hair. Whenever he gets excited or determined, his hair forms pointed clumps and stands up like a [[Manga/DragonBall Super Saiyan]]
* BadassAdorable
* BerserkButton: Don't touch his mother or sister.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Much like Josuke, Koichi is nice up to a point. But mess with his friends or family, and he will ''ensure'' that you regret ever doing it. The change from "nice to badass" is more pronounced than Josuke, however, in that Koichi's normally soft features become much harsher-edged (and he grows a [[{{Manga/DragonBall}} Super Saiyan-like]] aura) when he's pissed.
* CrossDressingVoices: Voiced by women in all adaptations he's in.
* CharacterDevelopment: He starts off as a weak and shy youth, but as the series progresses, he began to be more confident and even gained the respect of Jotaro Kujo. Hell, even his Stand symbolizes his change.
* DeathGlare
* DefiantToTheEnd[=/=]TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: A non lethal example. He was ready to die and clearly said to [[spoiler:Kira]] that he sucked:
--> ''"Your stupidity has exposed you! I will wait for you in the other world!"''
* DubNameChange: As with Crazy Diamond becoming Shining Diamond, Echoes became [[PunnyName Reverb]] for the English version of ''All-Star Battle'' in order to keep Pink Floyd from suing.
* EvolutionPowerUp[=/=]MultiformBalance: Echoes has three forms. Each successive form has more powerful combat abilities, but drastically reduced movement range compared to the previous form.
** Act 1 can plant a written sound on something, which will repeat and increase in volume; it remains relevant despite Acts 2 and 3 due to its excellent movement range making it a useful scout.
** Act 2 can also plant written sounds, but these will instead "become real"; for example, if it plants the sound "whoosh", a strong gust of wind will appear; if it plants "cracklecrackle", flames will appear; etc.
** Act 3 has Act 2's sound powers along with the ability to generate a gravity well under anything it punches. It's the strongest form.
* {{Expy}}: Shares the same name and a similar appearance and personality to a character from Araki's first serialized manga series, ''Magic Boy B.T.'' [[Manga/DragonBall He is also an expy of Gohan, Echoes Act 2 is an expy of Frieza, and Echoes Act 3 is an expy of Cell]].
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Echoes' power to attach a sound to a person may be easy to dismiss in a fight, but in its first appearance ever, it defeated a villain by driving him nearly insane from [[BrownNote extremely loud, painful sounds ripping into his ears constantly]]. This is rendered irrelevant later when Echoes Act 2 and 3 gain much more useful abilities.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Unlike other characters, Koichi visibly struggles early on with learning how to summon or control his Stand, because he would have been one of the people that doesn't survive the Arrow, yet being healed by Josuke allowed him to cheat death and get a Stand when he normally wouldn't be capable of getting it.
* MagneticHero: Through his actions, he became appreciated by many characters in the manga, even his old enemies. [[{{Jerkass}} Rohan]] himself stated that he appreciates him.
* NiceGuy
* OfficialCouple: He ends up being [[spoiler:Yukako]]'s boyfriend.
* OlderThanTheyLook: His height's probably to blame.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Echoes Act 3 is about as tall as Koichi. It also packs a ''mean'' punch.
* [[SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan Sensitive Guy]]: To Josuke and Okuyasu's Manly Men.
* SirSwearsALot: Echoes Act 3 is very foul-mouthed, even in the Japanese original.
* TookALevelInBadass: Several times, actually. The first time he did, his Stand was created, the other times his Stand leveled up with him.
* UnsoundEffect: Echoes's first ability.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

! Okuyasu Nijimura (Stand: The Hand)
-> Voiced by: Creator/WataruTakagi (''All-Star Battle'')

Josuke's schoolmate. At first, he antagonizes Josuke at the behest of his elder brother, but the two later become friends. [[IdiotHero He's a bit slow on the uptake.]]

Okuyasu's stand is The Hand. When he swings his right hand, anything along the arc's path will vanish, and the resulting gap will close; for example, if Okuyasu erases the middle section of a sign, the two ends will join in the middle. Okuyasu commonly uses this ability to teleport by erasing the air in front of him and zooming in to replace it. Despite the incredible potential of this ability, Okuyasu is too stupid to consider its implications and is poor in a fight. [[BewareTheSillyOnes Well, most of the time.]]
* AvengingTheVillain: His determination to stop [[spoiler:Akira]] stems from his desire to avenge [[spoiler:his brother]], even though he acknowledges that he probably got what was coming to him.
* BackFromTheDead: In the final battle, Okuyasu comes back from [[spoiler:getting ''a large chunk of his abdomen blown to smithereens'']].
** BigDamnHeroes: Just in time to save [[spoiler:Josuke, too!]]
* TheBigGuy: The Hand is essentially pure strength in Stand form.
* ButtMonkey: Like Polneraff and Narancia, he is usually the first person to get subjected to enemy Stands.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Expect to see this a ''lot'' where Josuke is concerned.
* DumbMuscle: His catchphrase is even some version of "Shut up! I ain't that smart!"
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Okuyasu's very first fight has Keicho reminding him how powerful his Stand is and that he better not screw up. Later in the fight, he showcases his Stand's ability to pull things towards him by doing it to Josuke...and accidentally pulling a nearby potted plant forward in the process, which hits him right in the head and knocks him out. Josuke then remarks that he'd be a lot more dangerous if he wasn't such an idiot.
* {{Expy}}:
** Shares a lot of similarities with [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart3 Jean-Pierre Polnareff]]. Both are impulsive, a bit dim, and are usually the first guys to be affected by enemy Stands. But at the same time, they are determined, and more loyal to their TrueCompanions than anyone else.
** [[YuYuHakusho Kuwabara]], being both soft-hearted and extremely gullible.
* FacialMarkings: His face has an odd set of lines best described as )(, circling around his eyes and not quite touching.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish to Keicho's responsible.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Josuke. They are almost always seen hanging out together.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: How he's initially defeated. Josuke doesn't even need to lay a finger on him, because he accidentally KO's himself with his own powers.
* HotBlooded
* IdiotHero: And well aware of it. Notice that he tends to attach himself to people who actually think before they act.
* TheLancer: Shares this with Koichi and sometimes Rohan to Josuke.
* LethalJokeCharacter: The Hand ''erases from existence anything it swipes''. This would be one of the single most dangerous stands in the franchise if it was being used by... well, anyone smarter than Okuyasu.
* PortalCut: Okuyasu personally believes that this is how The Hand's ability works, but claims that he has no idea ''where'' the portal leads.
* {{Power Palm|s}}: There's a reason his stand is called ''The Hand'', after all.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Josuke's Blue.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Looks even less of a teenager than Josuke despite being the same age as him.

! Rohan Kishibe (Stand: Heaven's Door)
-> Voiced by: Creator/HiroshiKamiya (''All-Star Battle'')

A mangaka noted for his incredible success at just 20 years old and his ''extremely'' eccentric personality. His stand is Heaven's Door, which makes anyone who sees his artwork (tracing his finger in the air is adequate) into an "open book" that he can freely read and write notes in. With these notes, he can alter people's personalities with phrases like "I cannot attack Rohan Kishibe" or "I speak fluent Italian"; even things like "I will fly backward 10 meters" will have an effect.
* AntiHero: Mostly a NominalHero since he tends to be rude, callous, and sociopathic. Though it should be noted that when the situation's dire enough, he's capable of sacrificing himself for others.
* AnimeHair: What the ''hell'' is that jagged bit on his head? A headband? Part of his scalp? It's never explained or even mentioned by anyone.
* AuthorAvatar: Subverted. Although he shares many traits with Araki, the latter has mentioned in interviews that his personality is nothing like Rohan's despite the superficial similarities. For one thing, although Araki likes Josuke, Rohan can't stand him.
* BareYourMidriff: Most of his outfits.
* BreakoutCharacter: Very popular among the fans. He's also the main protagonist in several side stories such as the "Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe" one-shots. Also, Araki said that fans were asking him [[spoiler:when will he appear in part 8. Although, it has to be his counterpart.]]
* BrutalHonesty: Really, really brutal.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's a very capable mangaka, but he has a lot of quirks.
* CallForward: According to ''Episode 16: At A Confesssional'', in the time of his recuperation after the battle against Josuke, he went to Italy to do researching for Pink Dark Boy. The next arc, Vento Aureo, is set in Italy.
* TheCameo: He's briefly namedropped in ''Stone Ocean'' as one of the few mangaka who are still making their deadlines after Made in Heaven takes effect. Keep in mind, that means he's [[BeyondTheImpossible drawing entire chapters of manga in a couple minutes each when time is going so fast that the ink on his pen should be drying out before he can touch paper]].
** CerebusRetcon: According to the ''Jorge Joestar'' novel, this incident wasn't a joke. Rohan was so utterly absorbed in his work that Made in Heaven simply didn't affect him and he carried over into the next universe ''unchanged''.
*** Of course said novel is a non-canon CrackFic written by the author, so take that as you will.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Initially, he's portrayed as being reclusive, extremely rude, and possibly even mentally unstable. As time went on, those traits got toned down considerably to where he seemed more eccentric than anything else. He almost seems like a different character in the one-shots compared to how he seemed at his first appearance.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Given his popularity, it's no surprise he has starred in many one-shots. He's even sometimes considered as a "bonus" protagonist.
** SpinOff:... and from what it looks like, Araki could serialize his "Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan" one shots at least a couple of times a year if it's either in ''Weekly Shounen Jump'' or in ''Jump SQ'' without interrupting his current serialization of Part 8 in ''Ultra Jump''.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Only partially. Rohan gets along very well with Hazamada and Koichi, but not Josuke. He was defeated by the latter, mind you.
* {{Fiction 500}}: The wealth gained from the popularity of his manga allows him to buy Gucci, Armani and ''mountain ranges'' with enough money to make [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Scrooge McDuck]] green with envy. The last of those temporarily bankrupted him, mind.
* {{God Mode|rs}}: His Stand amounts to this, especially once it becomes clear in ''Rohan au Louvre'' that he can even use it on himself. He can make it impossible for others to attack him, and if he had just a little more motivation, he could have been one of the most fearsome characters in the series with it.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* {{Haunted Hero|ine}}: From the manga to the one-shots, every story about Rohan involves him encountering ghosts.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Rohan believes that normal people are a waste of his precious time, and will ONLY show his ''barely'' kind and caring side to those who earn his respect.
* ItsPersonal: He's even more motivated to bring down Kira when he learns that one of Kira's victims once babysat him at her home on the same night Kira chose her as his newest [[ALoveToDismember "girlfriend" donor]]. She [[HeroicSacrifice neglected her own safety so she could ensure that Rohan would not be killed as well]]. Suffice to say that Rohan becomes determined to repay her sacrifice.
* LackOfEmpathy: Caused by a combination of his inborn eccentricity and his pride in his skills as an artist. He ''does'' slowly gain some after befriending Koichi.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: By turning people's flesh into pages, he can rip the pages out, taking their memories and weight.
* MadArtist: He is eccentric, arrogant, reclusive, and initially comes across as sociopathic, though he shows his nicer side later.
* AManOfWealthAndTaste: Wealthy, yes. Buys top classy brands, oh definitely. Taste? Well... His are as "different" as his personality.
* MeaningfulName: In ''Rohan au Louvre'', he explains that his parents combined the characters for "tied to" and "the ephemeral" to give him the name "Rohan". This explains why he seems to always attract wandering spirits.
* NiceHat: Heavens's Door has one.
* NoExportForYou: Invoked. His comics have Taiwanese and French translations, but no English. According to Rohan, [[TakeThat the American industry has no taste and won't publish him]].
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace
* OneLiner: From the Highway Star arc:
--> ''"However, I refuse."''
* PersonalityPowers: Heaven's Door is perfect for someone with writer's block.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: In his debut arc, he started out very plain-looking. After Araki's drastic style change in the middle of the story, he becomes one of the most well-known {{Bishonen}}s in Part 4.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Another point to bring up in the whole AuthorAvatar thing. In the author's note section of volume 35, Hirohiko wrote that he's against environmental destruction, and brings up that he recently visited his hometown, and a mountain that was there has been bulldozed to make room for a housing complex. Pretty much the same thing happened to Rohan in ''Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe - Mutsukabekaza'', but Rohan just bought the entire mountain range instead of letting it get bulldozed, going bankrupt in the process. So, it's pretty obvious that Araki didn't take this lying down.
* ReclusiveArtist: An InUniverse example, and he's somewhat infamous for it.
* RewritingReality: His stand, Heaven's Door, has the ability to alter a target's thoughts, memories, and even their physical space. It even makes them capable of doing physically impossible things if he wishes - he saves Koichi from the hands of the dead by writing "Koichi flies backwards at 70 KPH" in him. As of ''Rohan au Louvre'', he can even use the ability on himself.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: He bought a few mountains in order to stop construction so he could proceed with research for his manga in an undisturbed environment. He went bankrupt in the process, but money is never an object to him anyway.
** ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: When Josuke attempts to trick him into betting enormous amounts of money in a gambling game [[spoiler:involving an alien disguised as dice]], Rohan becomes so focused on figuring out how Josuke cheats that he fails to notice that his ''very'' expensive home is '''on fire'''. He then proceeds to '''''[[{{Determinator}} ignore the fire entirely]]''''', still hell-bent on figuring out Josuke's scheme. Later on, it is shown that he was quick to pay for the extremely high housing repair costs incurred due to the fire without so much as batting an eyelash.
* {{Shonen}}: Apparently Rohan's editors believed that he needed more [[BuxomIsBetter large-breasted female characters]] for his manga to be successful. It seems that his manga, ''Pink Dark Boy'', is an action story full of young men and was able to become [[AuthorAvatar a massive hit]] even without the addition of more female characters.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: While they do appreciate him, nearly everyone agrees that Rohan is an extremely unpleasant individual. Even [[NiceGuy Koichi]] is still unnerved around him from time to time. This suits Rohan just fine, since he has little interest in the rest of them in return, beyond being his allies in uncovering Kira. The only exceptions to this are with Koichi, [[OnlyFriend the only friend he truly respects]], and Josuke, [[WithFriendsLikeThese the only friend he]] '''[[WithFriendsLikeThese really]]''' [[WithFriendsLikeThese hates]].
* WriteWhatYouKnow: Invoked. Like Araki, he believes in researching reality to improve his stories. ''Maybe'' unlike Araki, he does some extreme things for that purpose. Early on, he tortures a spider to see how it reacts to pain, then kills it... but not before '''tasting''' it with a casual lick.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: In-universe example. Being able to literally read people like books comes in handy for when he needs inspiration for new characters...
* TheWorfEffect: Despite having one of the most broken stands in Part 4, Rohan constantly falls for traps set by enemy Stand users. It doesn't help that he's fairly short-sighted outside of his work.

! Reimi Sugimoto
-> Voiced by: Creator/RyoHirohashi (''All-Star Battle'')

The ghost of Yoshikage Kira's first victim. She clues in Koichi and Rohan to the presence of a serial killer in Morioh.
* BigFriendlyDog: Her ghostly sidekick, Arnold.
* BigGood
* CoolBigSis: Was this to Rohan.
* CuteGhostGirl
* JacobMarleyApparel: Kira apparently leaves the same scar on everyone he kills, and the scar also appears on their ghosts.
* MeaningfulName: Aside from the ShoutOut below, "Rei" also means "spirit".
* NothingIsScarier: When she shows a person her scar, we never get to see it. One can only wonder how badly Kira used to mutilate people before Killer Queen gave him a cleaner way of handling corpses.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent
* ShoutOut: She and her dog Arnold are named after two Syd Barrett-era PinkFloyd singles, ''See Emily Play'' ("Reimi" is an anagram of "Emiri") and ''Arnold Layne''.

! Hayato Kawajiri
-> Voiced by: Creator/YukoSato (''All-Star Battle'')

Kosaku Kawajiri's son.
* BadassNormal: Has no Stand power. Catches onto the villain first, escapes his elaborate trap, and throws himself in harm's way in a determined attempt to make sure Kira gets what he deserves. As a kid in elementary school, he more than qualifies.
* DrivenToSuicide: Tries to kill himself with an Exacto knife when [[spoiler:Bites The Dust is about to trigger and kill Josuke's group]]. Unfortunately for him, [[spoiler:Bites The Dust is designed to keep ''him'' alive]].
* PapaWolf: Ironic in that, being just a child, he's willing to die and even kill to protect his mother from [[spoiler:Kira in the guise of his father.]]
* ProperlyParanoid: He places hiddin cameras around the house and films his father while he is going to work for months, because he suspects that he has been replaced by someone who looks exactly the same.


! Joseph Joestar (Stand: Hermit Purple)

See [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart2 part 2]]

! Tomoko Higashikata

Josuke's mother, who is deeply in love with Joseph. She's rather normal, being as good of a parent as she can to Josuke.
* BerserkButton: Coming on to her. She slams a guy's head into his car when he tries to flirt with her.
* DistressedDamsel: Gets held hostage several times throughout Part 4.
* TeenPregnancy: Conceived Josuke when she was still in college.
* YourCheatingHeart: Inverted case. She knows Joseph is married, but is still madly in love with him.

! Ryohei Higashikata

Josuke's grandfather. A police officer who served in Morioh for 35 years. A jokester who is somewhat neglectful of his duties, but genuinely eager to help his community. Gets killed by Anjuro.
* CoolOldGuy
* FriendlyTarget
* LetsGetDangerous: Gets a fearsome look in his eyes when he finds out a serial killer's on the loose. [[SubvertedTrope Sadly, since the killer recently gained supernatural powers...]]
* OverprotectiveDad: Looks the other way when Tomoko slams an overly flirtatious man's face into his car.
* SacrificialLamb

! Nijimura Family Patriarch (Stand: Nijimura Family Patriarch's Stand)

The father of the Nijimura brothers. The loss of their mother and the family's descent into poverty made him abusive, but his financial problems were solved by joining Dio's henchmen. However, the flesh bud implant that came with this ran wild upon Dio's death, causing him to mutate into a monstrous form that would impair his intelligence and ability to speak and heal any wounds instantly. Keicho subsequently searches for a means to end his father's miserable life.
* AbusiveParent: Towards his sons, until he found Dio.
** KarmicTransformation: He became the savage beast he was to his sons.
* AndIMustScream: Being turned into a blob that can't think or speak properly, it's the fate of anyone who has a seed of Dio inside them.
** Even worse, despite not being able to speak or otherwise communicate, he remembers who he was -- enough that he's spent ten years trying to reassemble a torn-up photograph of his family and crying for days on end between attempts.
* BodyHorror: Mutated into a massive green blob.
* HealingFactor: His unnamed stand seems to give him this power, allowing him to regrow a severed arm.
* HumanoidAbomination: Mutated into an almost mindless green blob monster with a beakish mouth.
* NoNameGiven
* ProgressivelyPrettier: Starts off being utterly disgusting before ArtEvolution made him into a {{Mon}}-like creature.
* SanitySlippage: The seed not only decreased his looks, but his rationality as well, being completely animalistic by the time of the story.

! Tamami Kobayashi (Stand: The Lock)
-> Voiced by: KazunariTanaka (''All-Star Battle'')

A local thug who shakes down people for money by using his Stand, The Lock, which places a heavy padlock on a target's heart that amplifies feelings of guilt. After his defeat at the hands of Koichi and his newly awakened Stand, he ceases his criminal activities and helps the party from time to time.
* ArtEvolution: When he's first introduced, he's a regular sized man with a regular amount of hair. Over the course of a few chapters, his design drastically changes to one in which he's about the same size as the diminutive Koichi and his hair is drawn more pronounced.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: After being defeated, he becomes a follower of Koichi.
* DrivenToSuicide: If The Lock becomes heavy enough, its victim ''will'' become so guilt-addled that they'll think suicide the only proper thing to do.
* HeelFaceTurn: Brought on by not wanting to have his eardrums explode by Echoes.
* {{Jerkass}}
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Becomes this after being humbled by Koichi.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: A Stand user himself, and is a fan of Rohan Kishibe's works. In ''Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe: Mutsukabezaka'', he receives an autograph made of coffee in a paper sheet.
* LoanShark: Becomes this post-HeelFaceTurn.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He was an average-sized man until Koichi defeated him, which somehow resulted in him shrinking to midget size.
* WeirdnessMagnet

! Toshikazu Hazamada (Stand: Surface)
-> Voiced by: Creator/TaikiMatsuno (''All-Star Battle'')

A bully at Koichi's high school. He uses his stand, Surface, to alter a life-size wooden mannequin into an exact double of someone. If the Surface-doppelganger makes eye contact with whoever its imitating, the real person will be locked into copying the mannequin's movements.
* ArtEvolution: In the same vein as Tamami Kobayashi, he was originally introduced as a regular sized man. However after being discharged from the hospital following his initial encounter, he became much more smaller, being practically just a head taller than the diminutive Koichi.
* AxCrazy
* CasanovaWannabe
* DefeatMeansFriendship
* DisproportionateRetribution: How he is introduced; Tamami narrates to Koichi and Josuke how he used his stand to [[EyeScream force someone to rip his eye out]] just because the guy had argued with him.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* {{Goth}}
* GreenEyedMonster: Really hates popular guys like Josuke.
* HeelFaceTurn
* OlderThanTheyLook: After being defeated by Josuke and befriending Koichi, Hazamada suddenly looks quite a bit younger than before, partly because he suddenly looks a lot shorter. On the other hand, Koichi ''is'' the primary point of view, so this may be an indication of Hazamada no longer being a threat to him.
* {{Otaku}}: A big fan of Rohan Kishibe's ''Pink Dark Boy'' and nerdy interests in general.
* NoRespectGuy: ''His own Stand'' makes fun of him.
* PeoplePuppets: Surface uses an interesting version of this. Once it begins mimicking a person, it can actually control their actions so long as it maintains eye contact. Specifically, whenever it makes a motion while doing so, the one mimicked will wind up doing the same motion, albeit with the other side of their body, as though they were Surface's mirror reflection.
* TheSociopath: Rohan's use of Heaven's Door on him reveals he tortures animals and his younger brother and nearly raped a girl he had a crush on...[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and as such, is absolutely terrible writing material for Rohan]]. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Naturally, he's really crushed by it]].

! Yukako Yamagishi (Stand: Love Deluxe)

A beautiful classmate of Koichi's who falls deeply in love with him due to his pure heart and potential. Her Stand, Love Deluxe, makes her hair prehensile.
* AlliterativeName
* BlackEyesOfEvil: As a side-effect of Aya's Stand Cinderella after she forgot to apply a lipstick.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Being bested by Koichi, then [[spoiler:rescued from a certain death by Echoes, who pasted a "Boing" sound into a cape]].
* HeelFaceTurn
* MoodWhiplash: [[spoiler:Finally kisses Koichi in a rather heartwarming moment which is immediately followed by [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/jojo_s_bizarre_adventure_part_4_diamond_is_unbreakable/c010/18.html her face becoming black eyed and hideous]]]].
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler:Koichi]].
* PrehensileHair: The power of Love Deluxe.
* PutOnABus: After the "Yukako Yamagishi wants to be Cinderella" chapters, she only appeared at the end to salute Reimi.
* StalkerWithACrush: Towards Koichi, although after he successfully defeats her, she greatly tones down her aggression.
* {{Yandere}}: Until Echoes defeats her, anyway.

! Antonio Trussardi (Stand: Pearl Jam)
-> Voiced by: DaisukeMatsubara (''All-Star Battle'')

An Italian chef who sets up shop in Morioh. His stand, Pearl Jam, allows his dishes to correct poor health.
* BerserkButton: Kitchen hygiene is something that Antonio takes very, ''very'' seriously. He does not take ignorance of said hygiene well, as Josuke found out.
* BodyHorror: While his cooking is beneficial, it also has the unfortunate side effect of doing some rather gross things to the person who eats it in the process (like causing Okuyasu's eyes to deflate and a dog to start puking up his intestines.)
* DubNameChange: Pearl Jam to Opal Jam in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''.
* FaceOfAThug: Pearl Jam looks like a swarm of grimacing, sharp-toothed parasites, but it cures the illnesses and pleases the taste buds of Tonio's customers.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Subverted. It looks like he's flying into a rage when Josuke and Okuyasu see his KickTheDog moment. Turns out he was just pissed that they didn't come in with the proper hygiene.
* KickTheDog: Shockingly subverted, considering this series' track record for the trope. Josuke and Okuyasu witness Antonio feeding some of his food to a sickly dog, and witness said dog [[BodyHorror puke up his intestines]]. Turns out (as Okuyasu finds out the hard way) that it's just Pearl Jam's way of curing people, as they need to expel the damaged body parts. The dog turns out to be perfectly fine and better than before.
* MundaneUtility[=/=]PersonalityPowers: Pearl Jam was awakened by his resolve to perfect his culinary arts, and its ability reflects that -- it quickens the body's digestion and utilization of food to repair any diseases the eater is suffering from.
* WhatYouAreInTheDark: ''Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe - Poaching Reef'' gives a bit of background for Tonio's reason to migrate from Italy to Morioh. [[spoiler:He wanted to find a cure for his lover's tumor]].
* WeirdnessMagnet

! Shizuka Joestar (Stand: Achtung Baby)

An invisible baby found by Josuke Higashikata and Joseph Joestar. Her Stand ability, "Achtung Baby", allows her to turn her and anything at short range invisible.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Despite being adopted by Joseph at the end of part 4, she hasn't appeared since. [[spoiler:And given the cosmic retcon in Stone Ocean, it's possible she never will.]]
* {{Invisibility}}
* MeaningfulName: Shizuka means "calm" or "quiet"; both appropriate for someone with a stealth-themed Stand, and something her caretaker is going to hope for, as her ability causes trouble if she gets upset.
* ShoutOut: The "disguise" that Joseph and Josuke gives her might be a reference to ''{{Literature/The Invisible Man}}''.
* WeirdnessMagnet

! Shigekiyo "Shigechi" Yanguu (Stand: Harvest)
-> Voiced by: Creator/KappeiYamaguchi (''All-Star Battle'')

A fat middle schooler with a greedy streak. He commands Harvest, a 500-man stand resembling tiny bee men.
* AnyoneCanDie
* BestFriendManual
* BigEater: Is very touchy when someone threatens his lunch. [[spoiler:This in part gets him killed.]]
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: One application of his Stand.
* [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Even Jerkasses Love Their Parents]]: He's a selfish money-grubber, but when [[spoiler:Kira threatens his parents after damaging him heavily]], he spills the beans about Morioh's search for Reimi's killer.
* FatBastard: While he is one of the good guys, Shigechi is also greedy, quick to blame his friends when something goes wrong, and has a tendency to go back on his word. Justified in that he hasn't exactly been treated nicely in the past.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* {{Gonk}}: He's short, fat, and has ''bumps'' on his head instead of hair.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: One day, he buys an expensive sandwich made in limited quantities. He misplaces it and finds another bag from the same bakery. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:Yoshikage Kira also bought and misplaced the same sandwich and left his current "girlfriend" in the bag. Shigechi finds Kira's sandwich bag and discovers his "girlfriend", so Kira kills him because he cannot leave any witnesses alive]].
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: One of the best examples in the series. Shigechi's stand seems like nothing special, being just a bunch of tiny creatures with a stinger that has practically nil offensive capability, and with a little compartment in their head in which they can store anything that fits, which is not much. However, multiply that offensive capability by ''five hundred'' and you actually have a potentially pretty dangerous stand, and he can also command his stand to look for things to bring him which manage to fit in their head, such as coins. If he commands them to go find 100 yen coins, it means he'll get back five hundred of those. ''That's roughly $500 American dollars'', which he can ask the stand to bring him pretty much at will. Him getting those five hundred 100 yen coins every day would ''set him for life''.
* MundaneUtility: He uses his Stand to collect lost coins around town.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He only shows up in two arcs, his introduction and [[spoiler:his fatal meeting with Yoshikage Kira]]. The latter ends up finally giving his friends a lead on the serial killer.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler: Kira is so DangerouslyGenreSavvy that the cast most likely would've been spinning their wheels for a long time trying to find him if Shigechi hadn't stumbled onto him and gotten himself killed trying to tell the others.]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe

! Aya Tsuji (Stand: Cinderella)

The manager and chief beautician of the Cinderella spa. Her Stand, Cinderella, allows her to change the body features of any person.
* AffablyEvil: A JackassGenie variation; while her stand does inflict BodyHorror on Yukako, she notes that it was because she didn't continue to apply the lipstick she was given.
* AmbiguouslyBi: When Yukako comes back for another 30-minute treatment, she acts rather... odd.
-->'''Aya:''' I'll need to touch you in all sorts of places...
** Basically she just feels her lips and lowers Yukako's shirt, which isn't bad, but then out of nowhere, she just grabs Yukako's breasts. It's kinda funny that Yukako doesn't even react, but she does slap her whilst stonefaced.
** It also says something that in response to getting slapped, she just giggles.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:She gets detonated by Kira so she can't reveal how she altered his features ''and'' so they won't revert. Note that said detonation occurs ''very'' shortly after the heroes find her after Kira's escape from her shop.]]
* FairyGodmother: How she sees and acts herself.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows Too Much
* MagicPlasticSurgery: Done through Cinderella, it pretty much ''is'' magic.
* MundaneUtility: Cinderella was awakened due to Aya's desire to be like the FairyGodmother from the story. When Cinderella alters a woman's features, it also amplifies her luck while the features are in effect. This includes gaining Mr. Right.
* PersonalityPowers: See MundaneUtility.
* VerbalTic: Tends to end her sentences with a visible sigh or heavy breathing sound because of her naturally low blood pressure.

! Mikitaka Hazekura / Nu Mikitakazo Nshi (Stand(?): Earth, Wind, and Fire)

An alien. [[AmbiguouslyHuman ...Maybe]]. His Stand ([[AmbiguouslyHuman ...maybe]]) is Earth, Wind, and Fire, which allows him to shapeshift into anything.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: He claims to be an alien, but it's never confirmed. It's not even clear if his shapeshifting power is actually a Stand -- while it fits all the other criteria, the Stand arrow ''swerves away from his body'' when fired at him, which... shouldn't happen. He also can't see Stands, an ability every Stand user is supposed to have.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Even if he really ''is'' an alien.
* DubNameChange: Earth, Wind, and Fire to Terra Ventus in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''.
* TheMasquerade: He claims that he is maintaining this in front of his mother.
* MundaneUtility: His first appearance has him acting as rigged dice.
* NiceGuy: He always wants to be helpful to Josuke, even when the latter is annoyed by it.
* PointyEars
* VoluntaryShapeshifting
* WeirdnessMagnet

! Yuuya Fungami (Stand: Highway Star)
* ChickMagnet: Is continually attended by three girls.
* DubNameChange: Highway Star to Highway Go Go in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''.
* FightingAShadow: His stand is capable of separating into multiple moving shadow footprints, capable of chasing someone for up to 60 km/h.
* GorgeousGeorge
* HeelFaceTurn: Although he was actually compelled to help by Josuke in order to deal with Enigma.
* JapaneseDelinquents: Part of a biker gang; he got his Stand when Yoshihiro's arrow caused him to end up in a massive auto accident.
* TheNoseKnows: He could tell if a peach has gone bad from across the room, and track down a person with scent.
* VampiricDraining: Or "nutrients", in this case.

! Kosaku Kawajiri

An anonymous salaryman.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
* ExtremeDoormat: From what we hear of him.
* InnocentBystander: He got the bad luck of crossing paths with [[spoiler:Kira]] while in Aya's workplace.
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler: By possibly ''seconds'', but by the time he appears on-panel, he's already dead, and Kira has taken his face and fingerprints.]]

! Shinobu Kawajiri

Kosaku Kawajiri's wife.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Kira's actions when [[spoiler:disguised as her husband]] ignites romantic feelings in her.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She is the only named character who didn't know about [[spoiler:the murder of her husband and posthumous use as a disguise for Kira]].


! Yoshikage Kira (Stand: Killer Queen)
[[caption-width:315:Click [[labelnote:here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kawajiri_Kira_2656.jpg[[/labelnote]] to see [[spoiler:Kawajiri]]]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/RikiyaKoyama (''All-Star Battle'')
-> Sheer Heart Attack voiced by: Creator/TsutomuKashiwakura (''All-Star Battle'')

A simple businessman and serial killer who has been secretly operating in Morioh for nearly 20 years. He targets beautiful women, and after killing and disposing of their bodies, keeps their hands, which he treats as a girlfriends, including taking them on dinner dates and buying them gifts of jewelry, until they finally rot. He first runs afoul of the heroes when he is forced to kill a student who accidentally discovers Kira's current girlfriend. A chase ensues, but Kira is clever enough to force a makeup worker to alter his face to resemble a local nobody, and gets away. The rest of ''Diamond is Unbreakable'' deals with the [=JoJo=] team searching for him.

His Stand is Killer Queen, who is able to make anything into a touch-activated bomb that leaves absolutely no evidence; this is what kept him off the police's radar. Other abilities include Sheer Heart Attack, an indestructible heat-seeking bomb on tank treads, and [[spoiler: Bites The Dust, a bomb that can create a time loop in which activities will endlessly repeat in the same order, no matter the circumstance, until Kira calls the bomb back.]] Killer Queen's largest weakness is, apart from it being a close-range Stand, that only one Bomb can be active at a time.

His Stand and its powers are named after Music/{{Queen}} songs and albums: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killer_Queen Killer Queen]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheer_Heart_Attack the album Sheer Heart Attack (which houses the song)]], and [[spoiler: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Another_One_Bites_the_Dust Another One Bites the Dust, which was released several years after Sheer Heart Attack.]]]]
* AffablyEvil: Unlike the previous {{Big Bad}}s, while a [[TheSociopath sociopath]], his {{Cloudcuckoolander}} traits are genuine, going out of his way to tell Shigechi his lifestyle and commenting on joining a gym because he saw it. At least at first.
** FauxAffablyEvil: Once he [[spoiler:usurps Kosaku's identity and gets Bites The Dust]], he becomes notably sarcastic and demeaning with a sly wit.
* AmbiguousDisorder: His SuperOCD, {{Cloudcuckoolander}} attitude, and his obsession with his "girlfriends", make it clear something is mentally not right with him.
* AnimalMotif: Cats. Killer Queen has very feline features, can be dangerous when his lifestyle is threatened, and even gets a power boost from a Stand called Stray Cat. Kira's finicky mannerisms and constant need to trim his nails also fit the motif, and later on he ends up living with a pet cat and gains a pet "cat" of his own.
** CatsAreMean
* ArcVillain / BigBad: While he is regarded as ''the'' villain of Part Four, he doesn't show up until about halfway through and is only dealt with intermittently afterward. Before and between these encounters, Josuke's main concern is minor villains like Akira Otoishi and pestering Rohan.
* ArtificialStupidity: Sheer Heart Attack is completely automated (which means it can have the strength of a short-range stand despite technically being a long-range stand), but can be easily fooled if it's would-be-victims are clever enough.
* ADayInTheLimelight: In ''Dead Man's Questions''.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassInANiceSuit: With a tie patterned with the logos on his Stand.
* BarredFromTheAfterlife: ''Dead Man's Questions'' shows that [[spoiler:after his defeat and posterior death at the hands of the Ghost Alley's victims, he wanders as a revenant in Morioh, having lost Killer Queen, but can't go to either heaven or hell]].
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Assuming the player one character colors in ''All-Star Battle'' are the canon colors, Kira is a blond guy.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Subtle, but it's there. Kira acknowledges that what he's doing is wrong several times in the story... but rather than seeing it as an evil act, he sees it as a bad habit, like being an alcoholic. It's also noteworthy that he legitimately loves his father, and later when [[spoiler: he's disguised as Kousaku, he begins to care for Shinobu and off-the-bat treats her better than Kousaku ever did.]]
* BornLucky: Kira often finds himself on the end of much good fortune and lucky coincidences that help his plans. At one point even boasts of having fate on his side. [[spoiler:Ironically, this plays heavily into his defeat, as it is his boasting of this that alarms Josuke of his true identity, and later he is run over by an ambulance that was called to help him, by chance]]. See also MeaningfulName.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He saves his nail clippings and only kills during years where his nails grow especially quickly. And he "dates" severed hands... hey, he's a serial killer.
* CluelessChickMagnet: Played with. Although Kira is actually well-liked, he's almost asexual due to finding dates boring and usually wanting to go home if stuck in one. On one hand, he's only attached to hands. On the other, the very first thing he did when he took over Kousaku's life is ''make dinner'' after ignoring Shinobu's scolding and then continued to ignore her beliefs that something was up because this had never happened before, then manages to somehow ignore Shinobu's obvious crush for the rest of the story until [[spoiler: gaining Bites the Dust]].
* [[ContrastingSequelMainCharacter Contrasting Sequel Big Bad]]: Kira is the black sheep among the villains for many traits that wouldn't be utilized again until [[JoJosBizarreAdventurePart6 Part 6]]: quiet, subdued, dressed moderately, his voice is almost always flat, and when provoked he still keeps his head for a large part of his appearance. He also holds a job anyone could get, had a relatively normal childhood, and above all really is someone you could meet on the street. He's also the only main villain to not only try and avoid fighting (as his first plans for [[spoiler: Shigechi]] were to completely ignore him and just grab the bag and run) but also lacks any kind of grandiose plan and simply continued the plot by surviving. He appears mid-way through the story and starts the plot himself and, interestingly, [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight never once looked into what Stands were]] [[HowDoIShotWeb and just assumed he had some kind of special power]]. Furthermore, compared to Dio and Kars, Kira had neither any comrades he recruited himself and upon showing even the slightest bit of care for someone he immediately brushed it off as being a result of wanting to seem "normal".
* CreepyChild[=/=]EnfantTerrible: He is a serial killer that started when he was just out of high school, but had urges to kill earlier than that.
* CreepyMonotone: What makes him creepier than Dio is that he's not very hammy, having a normal tone to not stand out.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Due to his irrational paranoia, Kira is extremely savvy of the kind of mistakes that usually get [[SerialKiller serial killers]] caught. His preparations to counter everything are done so well, that only [[PrideBeforeAFall his arrogance]] manages to undo his plans.
* DeathByIrony: The man who claimed that luck is always by his side [[spoiler:gets [[DeathByAmbulance run over by an ambulance]] that was called to help him, by chance]].
* DissonantSerenity: The father-son speech with Hayato, especially since he's much calmer than he usually is.
* DramaticIrony: All he wants is to live, in his words, a "Quiet Life", with his "girlfriends". [[spoiler: Once he takes over Kosaku's identity, he gets exactly that with a family and son, but quickly reverts to his old ways. This ends up leading to his defeat.]]
* DubNameChange: ''All-Star Battle'' turns Killer Queen into Deadly Queen, while Sheer Heart Attack is shortened to Heart Attack. Surprisingly, Bites the Dust is unchanged; even though it's only part of a song title, that reasoning didn't stop a number of other name changes.
* EvilGenius: Even without taking into account his deadly cunning, he's shown himself to be extremely good at performing advanced mathematical equations in his head, [[spoiler:which comes in handy for him when he uses it to weaponize Stray Cat's air bubbles]].
* FateWorseThanDeath: Heavily implied at the end of Part 4 when he's [[spoiler:grabbed by hellish-looking hands in the border to the afterlife]]. The spinoff ''Dead Man's Question'' shows that [[spoiler:he got away from that, but at the expense of losing Killer Queen]].
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet: Interestingly, despite having Killer Queen for more than decade, his first reaction to seeing Harvest was "What in the world is this!?" because Kira had ''never heard of the concept of Stands before''.
* GhostAmnesia: In ''Dead Man's Question''. He can remember his name, but nothing else.
* GroundhogDayLoop: When pierced by [[spoiler:his father's Arrow]], he gains an ability called [[spoiler:"Bites the Dust"]], which allows him to create brief versions of this. [[spoiler:He can even control whether or not they elapse... and even if they DON'T repeat, whomever he killed to start one ''will'' die anyway, as long as he doesn't retract his Stand beforehand...]]
* HavingABlast[=/=] StuffBlowingUp: Killer Queen has the ability to imbue things with explosive energy. Whenever someone touches the imbued thing...'''BOOM'''. Not the object, by the way, but ''the person''. He can also directly make people explode, and because it's a Stand, no one hears it.
** MadBomber: There's definitely something horribly wrong with his thought process.
** LudicrousGibs: Hard subversion, though, as Killer Queen is made to erase evidence. In fact, Kira's so skilled in this ability, he can cause Killer Queen to erase everything but certain parts of the human body.
** BlowYouAway: Stray Cat can produce nigh-invisible air bubbles which, upon being tagged by Killer Queen, become ''very'' dangerous.
* HiddenDepths: During his bout with Stray Cat, he protects his "wife" Shinobu and experiences a sense of protectiveness, much to his confusion. While he tries to dismiss his feelings as simply being a desire to protect his identity, this is possibly the closest thing Kira has to a redeeming factor after being portrayed as a completely ruthless serial killer throughout the story.
* IcyBlueEyes: Shown to great effect during his Great Heat Attack in VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Though his definition of "normal" is "live without anything obstructing his rituals". He wants his life to be predictable... by him and Yoshihiro's standards, at least.
* [[IronicHell Ironic Drag To Hell]]: [[spoiler:Kira is dragged off to hell by hundreds of hands.]]
* ImplacableMan: Sheer Heart Attack is completely indestructible and will track the hottest target it can find. That said, it knows when it blows up a human and when it doesn't.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:Turning Hayato into a literal TykeBomb]] in order to keep his identity secret.
* KnightOfCerebus: While many of the villains in ''Part 4'' were definitely horrible people, they usually had a few humorous quirks. Kira, on the other hand, has an air of creepiness about him starting from his first appearance, and his mannerisms are just downright disturbing. He further cements this trope when [[spoiler:he murders Shigechi after four long chapters of trying to comedically steal his "girlfriend" back]], averting the normal standard of the other arcs in Part 4 having a mixture of comedy and seriousness but being mostly harmless in the end.
* ALoveToDismember: Erotic fascination with women's hands, absolutely no use for the rest of the woman's body. Take it from there...
* ManInWhite: Same rationale as the BlondGuysAreEvil trope; assuming ''All-Star Battle'' is using the canon colors, this trope applies.
* MadeOfIron: Sheer Heart Attack forces Jotaro to go all out, and even he fails to destroy it. Koichi's Echoes, while upgraded, can only slow it down. [[HumiliationConga Kira, on the other hand....]]
* MeaningfulName[=/=]NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: "Yoshikage" means "lucky shadow", and he's a serial killer named "Kira," predating ''Manga/DeathNote''. Maybe this is part of why Light was unimpressed with his fans' nickname for him -- unoriginal.
* MultiColoredHair: [[spoiler:Gains this along with "Bite The Dust" once he's hit by the Stand Arrow again.]]
* NiceHat: Sports a bowler hat in ''Dead Man's Question''.
* {{No Celebrities Were Harmed}}: Of David Bowie.
* NotSoHarmless: His first interactions with the protagonists is trying to comically get back the hand of his latest victim. [[spoiler:He then kills Shigechi with his Stand effortlessly]].
* RedRightHand: His fingernails grow unnaturally fast. They seem to be growing faster when he's thinking about killing, too. A more straightforward example is Sheer Heart Attack, a self-operating bomb that's directly attached to Killer Queen's left hand.
* SelfMadeOrphan: Thanks to Josuke's trickery during the final battle.
* SerialKiller: A DangerouslyGenreSavvy one that tries to keep a low profile.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Official art books and the like commonly list his name as "Yoshikage Kill·A". ''All-Star Battle'' plays with this by naming [[spoiler:Kosaku Kawajiri's]] theme "KILL-A".
* SuperOCD: The reason why he's so obsessed with having a normal, predictable life. He even delays finishing off Koichi after noticing that his sock was inside out, and couldn't concentrate until he put his sock and shoe back on right, despite knowing that Josuke would be arriving to help in less than a minute.
* TongueTied: [[spoiler:Bites The Dust]] can turn any {{Muggle}} who knows Kira's secret identity into [[spoiler:a carrier of a miniature Killer Queen]]. If anyone tries to interrogate them about Kira, [[spoiler:Bites the Dust]] will cause an internal explosion that destroys the interrogator, then causes a repeating temporal time loop that only ends when Kira lets time resume normally or retracts [[spoiler:Bites the Dust]] to defend himself.
* UnwantedSpouse: '''Subverted''', believe it or not, and subverted hard. ''Kousaku'' was this, having married Shinobu only because they had a kid and then somehow surviving so many years married to her in a dead-end job. Kira, on the other hand, not only repaired the marriage between Shinobu and Kousaku by taking the latter's position, but he officially starts it by doing something so stupidly illegal in order to save himself, he charms and wins over Shinobu's heart. By the time Stray Cat happens, Shinobu is so completely in love with Kira, she's making up excuses to fling herself at him.

! Anjuro "Angelo" Katajiri (Stand: Aqua Necklace)

A serial murderer and the first villain of the story. Carries the Stand Aqua Necklace, who can travel through any liquid body and kill people from their insides.
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:His fate after Josuke ''melds him into a boulder.'' Although it's probably more a scream of fury than a scream of agony that's building up in him.]]
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Jotaro's interest and build up of his character makes him seem like this, but it turns out he was a PsychoForHire for Keicho.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* {{Jerkass}}
* MakingASplash: Aqua Necklace's power is a lot like [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart3 N'Dour's Geb]]. The main difference is that while Aqua Necklace can't control as much fluid as Geb could at a time, it's a lot more precise, and can even control water vapor.
* SerialKiller: A very depraved one; his background is that he kills little boys and rapes them. Notably, one of his worse acts is nailing one unlucky victim's body parts to a wall.
* TokenMotivationalNemesis: He kills Josuke's grandfather.

! Keicho Nijimura (Stand: Bad Company)

Brother of Okuyasu Nijimura and wielder of the Stand Bad Company, an army of miniature soldiers, toy-sized helicopters, and tanks who deal a lot of damage.
* AloofBigBrother
* DiscOneFinalBoss: TheManBehindTheMan of Angelo.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Keicho was actually doing pretty well even after [[spoiler:Josuke defeated him. Then Red Hot Chili Pepper drags him and his Arrow through a power line. This happens to leave the carried things intact, but still kills living things in the process.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Less evil than typical villains in the series though. And he seems like he wants to [[spoiler:kill his hideously-mutated father]] out of compassion (though it could just be disgust instead).
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet: Bad Company.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The responsible to Okuyasu's foolish.
* KarmicDeath[=/=]LaserGuidedKarma: In his pursuit of creating a Stand user to kill his father, he is killed by [[spoiler:one of the people he turned into a Stand user in the first place. Even his brother Okuyasu knew he had it coming.]]
* TheMinionMaster: His Stand, Bad Company, is a battalion of toy-sized army men. [[DeathByAThousandCuts All of their projectiles do very real damage.]] [[OhCrap And his army includes tanks and helicopters...]]
** {{Synchronization}}: Notable for its partial ''aversion'' of the long-time Stand rule that harming a stand will harm the user. In Keicho's case, he only cares about the destruction of a few soldiers because it temporarily screwed up his army's formation.

! Akira Otoishi (Stand: Red Hot Chili Pepper)
-> Voiced by: Creator/ShowtaroMorikubo (''All-Star Battle'')

A rock guitarist who tries to kill Joseph. He wields the stand Red Hot Chili Pepper, who can travel through (and use) electricity.
* BadassBoast: Said he could beat Josuke with his pinky finger.
* BreakoutVillain: A minor villain in the series who made it into VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle as a playable character.
* ConfessToALesserCrime: [[spoiler:He gets 3 years for burglary of five million dollars worth of goods, after he murdered Keicho and attempted to murder Joseph. Granted, Keicho wasn't a very good guy either and nobody can actually reveal the details of Keicho's murder without [[BrokenMasquerade having to explain the complicated nature of Stands]]. Akira prefers the jailtime anyways, as he's absolutely terrified of what Jotaro and Okuyasu would do if they caught him again]].
* DiscOneFinalBoss
* DubNameChange: The English version of ''All-Star Battle'' drops the "Red Hot" from his Stand's name to avoid copyright issues.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* {{Jerkass}}
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: A Stand user himself, he is a fan of Rohan Kishibe's works. In ''Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe: Mutsukabezaka'', he receives an autograph made of coffee in a paper sheet.
* LargeHam
* MeaningfulName: "Otoishi" means "sound rock".
* SmugSuper
* ShockAndAwe: We're talking about a Stand that can manipulate ''the entire power grid of Morioh.''
** PsychoElectro
* WeaponizedTeleportation: Being dragged through a high-voltage line by Red Hot Chili Pepper is pretty lethal.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

! "Bug-eaten" and an unnamed rat (Stand: Ratt)
Two rats who were pierced with the Stand arrow, granting them both the stand Ratt. Jotaro nicknames one of them "Bug-eaten" due to one of its ears having a large chunk missing. Ratt resembles a small turret-like robot and fires toxic barbs, which melt anything they hit into a sort of blood gelatin for the rats to eat later.
* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: They're very skilled tacticians.
* BodyHorror: Prepare to shudder when you see what happens to living things hit with Ratt's barbs...
* NoNameGiven: Jotaro made up "Bug-eaten"'s name. If it has a real one, it never gets revealed, unlike the Stand-using animals from part three.

! Yoshihiro Kira (Stand: Atom Heart Father)
-> Voiced by: Creator/BinShimada (''All-Star Battle'')

Yoshikage's father, dead before the story starts but living as a ghost in the Kira estate thanks to his Stand, Atom Heart Father, which also allows him to bind himself to photographs.
* DeathByIrony: In the final battle, [[spoiler:he gets killed by one of Killer Queen's air bombs]].
* TheDragon: To his son, Yoshikage.
** TheHeavy: Nearly every Stand that was introduced after Atom Heart Father was due to Yoshiro personally shooting their users with the Bow and Arrow. [[spoiler:Including Kira's Another One Bites The Dust.]]
* DubNameChange: Atom Heart Father is shortened to Heart Father in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''.
* EvilOldFolks
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Think Atom Heart Father sounds weak? He came within inches of killing both Jotaro and Josuke. It's because any person in a photo with him in it is bound by the area that the photo covers, and whatever Yoshihiro does to the people in the image will happen to the actual people, without any way to stop it. The only way to defeat this is to [[spoiler:take another photograph that makes him the only feature]].
** Even when his stand's main power is defeated, it still allows him an extreme amount of autonomy since he's still able to manipulate the photo itself and interact with the outside world.
* MoralMyopia: He stands fast by the idea that he should support his son's desires. Even when that son, as early as his teens, had an unstoppable need [[ALoveToDismember kill women and take their hands for his own.]] If you're ''not'' his family? He couldn't care less about you, and ''will'' kill you horribly if you threaten Yoshikage's peace of mind.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: The only reason he's sticking around is because his Stand binds his soul to photographs.
* PapaWolf
* PosthumousCharacter
* RealityChangingMiniature

! Ken Ooyanagi (Stand: Boy II Man)
-> Voiced by: Miho Hino (''All-Star Battle'')

Also called "the RockPaperScissors kid". A young admirer of Rohan Kishibe who also wants to challenge him to a RPS duel. He wields the Stand Boy II Man, who can drain the energy of another Stand user by playing a Rock Paper Scissors game and winning it.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: After losing, he throws himself into the way of a truck to avoid having his powers locked by Rohan. Impressed, Rohan jumps along and the truck [[BornLucky misses them both by chance.]]
* CreepyChild: It's bad enough that this kid stalks Rohan to challenge him to Rock Paper Scissors matches, but then it turns out those matches have Rohan's life energy at stake.
* DubNameChange: Boy II Man is renamed [=BoyManMan=] in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* MagicAIsMagicA: There are some rules to the usage of Boy II Man. It can only play 5 matches, take portions of the energy in thirds, and if it loses, he must return the energy.
* RockPaperScissors: Yes, Boy II Man uses that as its modus operandi. He can compel someone to play a 3-of-5 match with him. That's it... until he wins. If he ever gets to finish a match and win, ''he'll permanently hijack the loser's Stand''.
* TheFatalist: Really obsesses over the power of luck until Rohan defeats him.
* WoundThatWillNotHeal: The hole in his cheek from Yoshihiro's arrow, like actual wounds of that nature, doesn't heal naturally.

! Gatta (Stand: Stray Cat)

Once a normal a cat (British Blue) living in the Kawajiri estate who hates Shinobu Kawajiri. He was hit with an Arrow, died, and got reborn with a new Stand, Stray Cat, attached to him. Stray Cat allows him to manipulate air and create air bubbles.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Of the sort that afflicts most cats - Kira is able to distract him by giving him golf balls to play with.
* BerserkButton: Don't try to take away its sunlight. Also, don't be Shinobu Kawajiri (she was responsible for the cat dying).
* BlowYouAway
* CatsAreMagic: Though it could be considered a subversion, since at this point in the series, there'd already been a magical orangutan, a magical dog, a magical falcon, and two magical rats, but what ''is'' magical about it is that it's a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot plant with a cat's mind that can manipulate the air around it]].
* CoolPet: Flower. With. A cat's brain. If you don't get why that's cool, ''you're reading the wrong manga''.
* DubNameChange: "Stray" becomes "Feral" for the English version of ''All-Star Battle''.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Its eyes are on the inside of its petals.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: It can manipulate air and make bubbles. Doesn't sound like much, but when those bubbles pop, they put out a ''lot'' of force. [[spoiler:And then it almost killed Kosaku by ''forcing an air bubble into his veins''. Oh, and Kira can turn those bubbles into bombs...]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:The epilogue of ''Part 4'' states that Okuyasu's dad adopted him as a pet]].
* KillerRabbit: He's a flower with the mind of a cat. ''[[spoiler:He almost killed Kosaku]]''.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He's just a plant with a cat's mind! How dangerous could he be? Answer: '''''Very'''''. And that's before Kira [[spoiler:realises that he can use him to make air bombs...]]
* {{Planimal}}
* [[WhenTreesAttack When Flowers Attack]]

! Toyohiro Kanedaichi (Stand: Superfly)

A hermit living a lonesome life in an old, retired telephone tower. The tower itself wields the Stand Superfly, a completely autonomous Stand which restrains the user's freedom by keeping it within its reach.
* AntiVillain: All he wants is to escape from Superfly. Even as he plans to leave Josuke trapped in it, he offers up some advice on how to get out, like getting his friends to help him swap places with a criminal. He doesn't actually try to kill Josuke until he gets too stubborn in trying to force him back in. [[spoiler: In the end, he reveals that he's been stuck for so long that part of him didn't actually ''want'' to leave, and he eventually agrees to stay behind.]]
* CallBack[=/=]MythologyGag:
** To [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart3 Anubis]] in part 3, as Superfly cannot be controlled by its user and possesses it.
** Though more so Gray Fly, and old man that uses an insect as a stand named "Tower of Gray". Comparing it to Kanedachi who uses an tower named after an insect...
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He's rather athletic because of his unusual living conditions.
* GeniusLoci: His Stand is bound to the telephone tower he lives in. While it's great that it attacks autonomously, [[PossessiveParadise it also really hates when people try to leave it, user included.]]
* {{Gonk}}: [[spoiler: Once it's revealed that he wears a mask, it starts looking more and more like this as the fight goes on, though what he actually looks like under the mask is never revealed..]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Is convinced by Josuke to let him go, and stays in the tower. He ends up becoming a landmark in Morioh and enjoys a small amount of fame with curious tourists]].
* LatexPerfection
* NotGoodWithPeople
* TheTower
** WeirdnessMagnet

! Terunosuke Miyamoto (Stand: Enigma)
-> Voiced by: Makoto Naruse (''All-Star Battle'')

A man obsessed with fear. Wields the Stand Enigma, which can turn people and objects into paper sheets by tricking them in order for them to show their CharacterTics.
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:Josuke binds him into a ''spiral-bound book'' in order to put an end to Enigma's threat. However, a legend develops that the Miyamoto book can be heard whispering, so it might not completely apply.]]
** KarmicDeath: Or rather a [[FateWorseThanDeath karmic demise]], seeing as he doesn't die.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde
* DubNameChange: Enigma to Misterioso in the English version of ''All-Star Battle''.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* {{Hammerspace}}: Enigma can give paper this property.
* IKnowWhatYouFear: Enigma can trap a living person inside paper too, as long as Terunosuke knows what CharacterTics to look for in each person.
* IronicEcho: His power to trap people requires him to predict a person's CharacterTics when they're afraid. [[spoiler: Josuke does the exact same thing just before inflicting a FateWorseThanDeath on him.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Deeply enjoys scaring people, and does so far beyond what he needs to utilize Enigma.

! Masazo Kinoto (Stand: Cheap Trick)

A quiet and timid, yet greedy architect. Wields, although against his wishes, the Stand Cheap Trick, who acts by inflicting fear in its wielder saying that anyone who can see his back is bound to death.
* BodyHorror: Anyone who's had this Stand removed will have their back opened and die, as well as shrink down to a shriveled corpse the size of the palm of your hand.
* DraggedOffToHell: Rohan specifically does this as a command for Cheap Trick.
* EnemyWithin: Kinoto wasn't strong-willed enough to control a Stand, so it manifested as an externalization of his own fears and went along with Yoshihiro Kira's plan to kill Rohan, knowing that it would kill its own User.
* FightingSpirit[=/=]WeirdnessMagnet
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Overlaps with Yoshihiro Kira for creating Cheap Trick. Cheap Trick tried to get Rohan to burn the photos he had of Hayato following people with a Camcorder, confirming that Kira was one of the crowd people.
* {{Omniglot}}: Cheap Trick's voice can be heard and understood by anyone, even [[AnimalTalk animals]]; it uses this talent to insult anyone it can in order to get people (or dogs and cats) to attack its host.
* {{Synchronization}}: A rather interesting case in this series, as it essentially attaches and becomes a separate Stand to whoever sees the back of the previous person.
* VerbalTic: Cheap Trick tends to repeat or reaffirm everything it says. ("Burn the photos! Do it!")
