[[caption-width-right:350:Presenting Jupiter, now with 80% more Music/{{Versailles}}.[[note]]Left to right: Teru, Masashi, Zin, Yuki, and Hizaki.[[/note]]]]

Jupiter is a Japanese {{Symphonic|Metal}} PowerMetal band formed in April 2013 by guitarists Music/{{Hizaki}} and Teru, drummer Yuki, bass guitarist Masashi, members of the popular Japanese metal band Music/{{Versailles}}, plus a new vocalist, Zin.

Jupiter continues to showcase much of the VisualKei style previously seen in Music/{{Versailles}}: androgynous aesthetics; fancy, elaborate costumes; and eye-catching performances.

The band released their first single, "Blessing of the Future," in July 2013, through Universal Music. Their debut album, ''Classical Element'', was released in August of that year.

[[IThoughtThatWas Not to be confused with]] [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster Project Jupiter]].

----
!Tropes applying to Jupiter and its members:
* {{Adorkable}}: Hizaki and Teru.
* AlbumIntroTrack: [[SarcasmMode Creatively]] titled "Introduction".
* AmbiguousGender: Everyone except Masashi. Teru fits this trope to a T. Hizaki speeds right past this trope into DudeLooksLikeALady territory.
* BadassCape and BadassLongcoat: Masashi, Yuki and Zin wear these.
* TheBandMinusTheFace. Jupiter is just Music/{{Versailles}} with a new name and a new vocalist.
* BareYourMidriff: Teru
* {{Bishonen}}: Everyone. Nuff said.
** {{Biseinen}}: Masashi
* CastFullOfPrettyBoys
* ColorCodedCharacters: Interestingly, the members chose to avert this, as opposed to what was previously seen in Music/{{Versailles}}.
* CostumePorn: Considering that they're a spin-off of [[Music/{{Versailles}} one of]] the most [[BuffySpeak costume porn-y]] bands in [[VisualKei a scene whose entire shtick is costume porn]]...
* DarkerAndEdgier: Visually, compared to the bright and colorful aesthetics of Versailles. In terms of music, while it has a lot of similarities to Versailles, ''Classical Element'' in particular has more {{progressive|Metal}} influences and experimenting with different musical elements (pun not intended).
** "ALLEGORY CAVE" is this to their music in general; it's among Hizaki's harshest work, if not his harshest, due to it being rooted in MelodicDeathMetal.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Hizaki and Teru. Both are/were particularly notable for this, especially Hizaki (due to his status as one of the [[WholesomeCrossdresser most convincing crossdressers]] in VisualKei).
* ElegantGothicLolita: Hizaki's current style.
* EpicRocking: "Classical Element", which is ''exactly'' 12 minutes long.
* HarshVocals: "Allegory Cave" is unusual (by the band's/Versailles' standards) for consisting of primarily harsh vocals with occasional clean vocals, instead of the other way around.
* IAmTheBand: '''Inverted'''. Instead of only one man being the band, Jupiter consists of the members of Music/{{Versailles}} plus a new vocalist. And even if they didn't have a vocalist, they could still perform as a single unit.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Unsurprisingly, most of Jupiter's music clocks in around 6-8, with their {{Power Ballad}}s ("Nostalgie"[[note]]5[[/note]], "forever with you"[[note]]4[[/note]]) being lower on the scale. However, "Allegory Cave" is a 9--noticeably harder than any of Versailles' music.
* PowerBallad: "Nostalgie", "forever with you"
* RockMeAmadeus: [[CaptainObvious They're a]] SymphonicMetal [[CaptainObvious band.]] The title ''Classical Element'' is specifically a reference to this (as well as to the [[ElementalPowers classical elements]]).
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: See PowerBallad above.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Zin is occasionally accused of being one of these for Kamijo.
* TitleTrack: ''Classical Element''
