Awesome Music: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

Videogames

Capcom Fighter
  • If there is one thing that JoJo's Venture has over its update, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, it is in the Opening Theme, which the home ports of the latter kept.
  • The inspiring theme of the main hero, Jotaro Kujo.
  • The elegant theme of the only reason girls play this game, Noriaki Kakyoin.
  • The heroic theme of the our favorite French Butt Monkey, Jean Pierre Polnareff. It's so good it's remixed in the GioGio game.
  • The next thing you will say is: "The daredevil theme of Battle Tendency's JoJo, Joseph Joestar".
  • The I-Don't-give-a-damn theme of the Team Pet jackass Iggy.
  • I, Dio, have a theme superior to everyone's else because I, Dio, am a boss of this game.
  • As an addendum to the above, Shadow DIO's splendidly creepy theme as well.
  • The ever-menacing theme of Vanilla Ice keeps players engaged in battles against him.
  • The once-faceless Midler enters the challenge with an alluring and mysterious theme, fitting her bellydancer-inspired redesign for this game.

Anime/OVA

The Animation
  • The first episode episode ends, and instead of the usual J-pop, we get "Roundabout" by Yes. Awesome.
  • The second episode starts, and for the opening we get Sono Chi no Sadame! (JOOOOOOOOOOOOJO~) . The Ultra-Manly song the likes of which we seldom we see today outside of tributes to the Eighties.
  • The anime version of Phantom Blood is no slouch in the music department, with a score that combines both orchestral music and a little bit of rock.
  • The Battle Tendency arc has a great soundtrack in general. It was done by Taku Iwasaki, who is practically a CMOA factory, complete with tracks by Lotus Juice:
  • The OP for Stardust Crusaders, STAND PROUD, is just as excellent as the other two openings, while being SEVERAL TIMES AS MANLY.
    • And the new ED theme? None other than "Walk Like An Egyptian" by The Bangles.
    • There's also Stardust Crusaders that first plays during the credits of Episode 2, before "Walk Like An Egyptian" took its place from Episode 3 onward. Luckily, it can be heard during certain episodes and let's just say that any time this theme starts playing, the scene it accompanies is definitely a Moment Of Awesome. Also appears to have cemented itself as the signature theme of part 3's JoJo, Jotaro Kujo and Star Platinum. It helps that it sounds like a guitar-heavy remix of the OVA's opening theme.
    • "Virtuous Pope", an uplifting, heroic tune which plays for Kakyoin's and Polnareff's times in the spotlight. When this plays, you just know that the tables are gonna be turned on the bad guys.
    • Setting Off. While it may feel a bit out of place for JoJo, it's nonetheless beautiful and calming.
    • And, from the second half of Stardust Crusaders, we have "Sono Chi no Kioku ~end of THE WORLD~", which features the bands behind all three of the previous openings. Awesome CG visuals, a rocking song and an ending of a triple ORAORAORA may make this the manliest opening in anime history. And that's the tip of the iceberg.
    • Also from the second half, Pat Metheny's "Last Train Home" is a perfect way to come down gently through the Awesomeness Withdrawal.
    • The Oingo Boingo Brothers ED that appeared in the titular duo's debut episode. Not only does it replicate the hilariously terrible and creepy art style of Boingo's manga stand really well animated, but it's incredibly catchy as well. Both voice actors turn out to be great singers, especially Oingo. Notable also for being quite popular on the Japanese iTunes after it first aired, being number 20 at one point.
    • Happens again in the ED for the Hol Horse and Boingo team-up, with the same replication of the episode in Stylistic Suck and rivaling the original version in catchiness.

  • While it may have been crappy enough to never be released on DVD, the Phantom Blood movie at least had a pretty cool theme song.
