Awesome: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle
  • A meta example. The game sold 500,000 copies in pre-orders alone, one of the biggest openings for a fighting game in Japan ever. In response, CyberConnect2 announced that one of the new DLC characters, Pannacotta Fugo, would be free as thanks. Although it may have also been to address the fanbase's frustration with the presence of on-disc DLC as was discovered soon after the game was release.
    • Another example is getting a Perfect score in Famitsu Magazine (40/40), one of the rare licensed games to have the honor, as well as being the first game by CyberConnect2 ever made to obtain such a score. Less of an achievement than it used to considering Famitsu's open admittance of relying on the Four Point Scale and its now rather liberal distribution of 40/40 scores, but still impressive.
  • A lot of the situation finishers can be this, depending on who you use them on. Throwing DIO into the sunlight? Knocking Kira into his desk and disturbing the book that reveals his evil agenda — or launching him into the alley where he's dragged off to the afterlife? All of them are possible; all of them are badass.
  • The fact that, if the player manages to pull it off, Kosaku!Kira can revert Pucci's Made In Heaven move or C-Moon stand back to Whitesnake using Bites the Dust.
  • The game is being released in the West, finally avoiding JJBA's long-standing problem with No Export for You.
    • While name changes are to be expected from this to avoid copyright complications, several screenshots and a press release show that amazingly, Funny Valentine, the most blatant, managed to keep his name intact.
      • If you think about it, not dubbing the game's soundtrack is a stealth one - sure, they had to rename Stands into things like "Zipper Man" or "Li'l Bomber"... but you still hear them say "Sticky Fingers!" or "Aerosmith!" CyberConnect2: giving copyright law the finger.
  • Rush Mode involves two characters, normally Stand users, pummeling each other For Massive Damage, akin to the franchise's tradition. Except that it also involves Jonathan, who isn't a Stand user, and can go toe to toe not only with the likes of Star Platinum and The World but also Polnareff's Silver Chariot, Narancia's Aerosmith and Guido Mista's Sex Pistols.
  • Since Baoh can't talk beyond his war cry of "Baru!", the narrator describes his actions and calls his attacks. When Baoh does his GHA, the narrator's voice echoes:
    Narrator: "Baoh: Break Dark Thunder Phenomenon!!"
