Memes: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
  • Thanks to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage For The Future, plus a certain Flash video, Dio is one of the most infamous manga villains of all time.
  • "Even Speedwagon is afraid!"
    • It's fun to make variations of his name: Speedbump, Rapidtrolley, Fastkart, Velocityvehicle... who is nervous, impressed, timid, astounded...
    • "Speedwagon withdraws coolly."
    • Speedwagon also has the Fan Nickname Moewagon.
  • The infamous "DUWANG" Translation Trainwreck of part 4 has brought some memorable lines such as "Get a feeling so complicated...", "Who in FACE are you?!" and "What a beautiful Duwang". The improved translations in the making keep a few of those as in-jokes and the TV anime is being "translated" in this style.
  • Whenever an argument about who would beat whom in a fight comes up, the answer is always Giorno. Along with The Flash, he's perhaps the person most commonly brought up in power level debates.
  • The series' distinctive art style has become a meme, being a popular choice for Art Shifted fanart of other series.
    • Similarly, if someone randomly throws around the Japanese "dramatic tension" Unsound Effects ゴゴゴゴゴ (GO GO GO GO GO) and ドドドドド (DO DO DO DO DO), it's guaranteed to be a JoJo reference.
  • "Out of Function/Retire(再起不能/リタイア)"note 
  • Araki's habit of drawing the characters in very weird poses, such as Diavolo's final pose (when he's running from the little girl), Giorno's "gang-star" pose, and Anasui's model-esque pose, has also spawned some memes.
  • The infamous anatomy description that appears for Kars when he becomes the Ultimate Being. Partly because it's reminiscent of many a bad deviantART Gary Stu, but especially for one stand-out entry pointing out that for Kars, "Sex: USELESS".
  • People being confused about how King Crimson works will often result in everyone saying no one knows how it works.
    "It just works."
  • YA YA YE COCO JUMBO YA YA YE note 
  • Joseph's penchant for provocative clothing and poses even by the manga's usual standards (especially in promos) has led to more than a few stripper jokes. It's since spiraled into prostitution jokes in the same vein as the edits from K-On!.
  • Fans have noted a fair number of coincidental similarities between Part 2 and the movie Zoolander (if Joseph is Derek). The main character's lack of common sense in many areas, the rivalry between Joseph/Derek and the new blonde ripple user/model that comes on to the scene, the large emphasis on posing, the odd fact that some scenes just look familiar, and the fact that both characters had their friends killed by Wamuu.
  • "Giant bara deer": A term for the musclebound men in the first parts of JoJo that arose after this animated .gif of Jonathan appeared on /a/ with the filename "giant_bara_deer_caught_in_headlights.gif".
  • Calling Wamuu's Holy Sandstorm attack the "Holy Wubstorm", after the Pillar Men's dubstep leitmotif.
  • Esidisi's crying face.
  • Rohan's response of "But I refusenote /Like hell I will!note /Daga kotowarunote /だが断る" when Highway Star commands him to call Josuke for help and thus lead him into a trap, is also a popular meme in the Japanese community, applied to any less than stellar Jojo-related info, product or news, or even anything in general. Ironically, Rohan uses this line and claims that he likes to say "NO!" to the faces of people who think they're hot shit, despite Rohan himself fitting that bill a good deal. Its also seen as an act of badass on Rohan's part, as he was in mortal peril and an inch away from losing his life to Highway Star only to rudely deny Highway Star's demand anyhow.
  • AWAKEN, MY MASTERS!/MEZAMETAMAE, WAGA ARUJITACHI YO!/目覚めたまえッ!我が主たちよ!Explanation 
  • Ahh! Sto-sama is dead!/あーん!スト様が死んだ! Explanation with mild spoilers for Battle Tendency 
  • "The first time I saw her, with her hands on her knee... how do I say this... I had a boner..."Explanation 
  • "Your stand is like your asshole. You can't go around showing it off to other people." Explanation 
  • You are a worthless child Jonathan Explanation 
  • Goodbye, JoJo! Explanation 
  • Anything Joseph says with Gratuitous English, the fans shall never forget.
  • "NANI WO SURUNDA!? YURUSAN!!!" Explanation 
  • "You thought this would be [X], but it was I, Dio!" Explanation 
  • Diamond is Not Crazy Explanation 
    • Also, Filthy Acts at a Reasonable Price. Explanation 
  • How deep can I hit it? Balls deep! Explanation 
  • With the TV anime premiere of Stardust Crusaders, it has become popular to swap out Dio's Hermit Purple-generated photo with just about anything else.
  • Did something, anything, happen? Then shout, "This must be the work of an enemy Stand!", which seems to be the usual (and correct) assumption in Stardust Crusaders.
  • Shadow Jotaro Explanation 
  • "Dio did nothing wrong!" Explanation 
  • Expect 「people」 who talk about Jojo to at least write a 「sentence」 with words closed by 「Japanese quotation marks」 and formatted in bold. Occasionally used to determine if someone has a 「Stand」.
  • Your next line will be: "[X]" ! Explanation 
    • [X]! ... Uh!? Explanation 
  • Because of a comment he made regarding his admiration of Jotaro's mother Holly, it's common on most sites to portray Noriaki Kakyoin has having a sexual preference for mothers.
  • NO WEAKNESS Explanation 
  • "This taste... it's of a LIAR! Giorno Giovanna!" Explanation
