*** Even ''with'' his vampire powers, Dio doesn't have an easy time of it. In their fight in the Joestar mansion, Jonathan managed to fight Dio to a standstill, impaling him on the statue of Venus, while heavily injured and ''on fire''. All this [[BadassNormal before he even learned about the Ripple]].

** Even when Dio breaks the sword and fully heals himself, Jonathan '''sets his hand on fire''' and actually manages to punches through the mighty icy defense of Dio, reducing him to a head. Dio inflicts a last wound with his Space Ripper Stingy Eyes, but still got his first permanent damage. If not for Wang Chan, Dio would be dead. Even with Wang Chan, he can no longer freeze people and [[VillainousRespect respects Jonathan]] after this fight.

to:

** [[HeroKiller Killing Jonathan as a head and later taking his body.]]]] He even survives a hundred years underwater, his main coffin stolen and after a stab to the neck. A PyrrhicVictory, but still his greatest one!


** The gang leader, Speedwagon, isn't an ordinary thug and even manages to use a hat with spinning blades to inflict the [[CurbStompCushion only]] injury to Jonathan. Jonathan still wins with no powers and [[HeelFaceTurn redeems Speedwagon with his kindness.]]



*** In fact, Dio is far more desperate in the cruiser fight than Jonathan and he also doesn't get unharmed. When Jonathan defeats Wang Chan and causes the explosion, he saves Erina from sharpnels and even manages to stab Dio with one and grab his head. Dio was even offering immortality to him.



* Dire, despite being frozen and shattered, manages to spit a Ripple-infused rose in Dio's eye.

* Dire, despite being frozen and shattered, manages to spit a Ripple-infused rose in Dio's eye. This helps Jonathan figure out a way to beat him and creates a temporary weak point.



** In the ship, she manages to escape the explosion and reach America, saving also a baby that would become the badass Lisa Lisa.



** And, let us not forget, coming along for the ensuing journey despite not having any CharlesAtlasSuperPower or SupernaturalMartialArts to protect himself. He's that determined to be there for his friend.

*** In fact, in the castle fight, he even directly contributes, by fending off zombies with a sledgehammer. Tronpetty helps him just as they become too much for him.
* The entire castle fight in general. Jonathan and Dio engage in a battle of wits between equals. Dire creates a blind spot and hints Jonathan how to beat Dio. Jonathan does so and severs Dio's arm before slashing him nearly in half. But Dio heals and starts drinking blood while freezing Jonathan, though there is a flaw in their combination Jojo exploits by setting his blade on fire.

** [[AnIcePerson Using his ice powers]] in order to reduce heat so the Ripple can't touch him. In fact, he makes Dire and his [[MemeticMutation Thunder Cross Split Attack]] look worthless with his Ionic Freeze.



* Bruford and Tarkus getting the heroes in situations where they can't use the Ripple. Not bad for two zombies from a far begone era.

to:

** Though that's also an awesome moment for Jonathan. By destroying Dio's original body, he made him far weaker. Even when Dio stole Jonathan's body, he could never get back his full power without a Stand.
* Bruford and Tarkus getting the heroes in situations where they can't use the Ripple. Not bad for two zombies from a far begone era. Tarkus even gets Zeppeli killed, though he regrets it shortly after.


** Jonathan showing his smarts in finding out that Dio was poisoning his father. He does this by having him swear on Dario Brandoís honor as a gentleman that he didnít poison Jonathan's father. This is meant to test if Dio had any murderous intention or hatred towards Dario of any kind... Sure enough, Dioís lie catches in his throat and he snaps, punching him in the face. [[NoSell All it did was royally piss off Jonathan and confirmed his suspicions]]. Then Dio tries to gouge his eye like in their boxing match from when they were kids. [[PunchCatch Jonathan obviously wasn't gonna have any of that shit]], and hurls Dio down stairs. Until Dio became a vampire, Jonathan's tormentor was no threat to him anymore.

* The very nature of the Ripple powers is itself a CMOA. Through special breathing techniques the characters change the flow of energy through their body to match the wavelength of sunlight. Then they use this power to ''punch vampires to death'' with fists that '''literally''' burn with the glory of the Sun herself.

** Jonathan using his last moments to stop Dio's takeover after suffering a fatal wound to the neck, after using his last Ripple to have Dio's assistant cause the boat to go down. Counts as a major TearJerker as well since it allowed Dio to get a body after decapitating himself after being beaten by Jonathan.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzMfMH-ArnA epic combined]] ReasonYouSuckSpeech and BadassBoast he gives to Jonathan (and by extension humanity at large, on account of the [[DrunkWithPower power high]] he's riding on [[TransHumanTreachery since becoming a vampire]]), who has just rejected his vampire essence through sheer willpower, in all its [[LargeHam ham-tastic glory]]:
-->'''Speedwagon''': The Vampire Essence, he squeezed it out. ''He's not done!'' [[{{Determinator}} Jonathan won't give up!]]
-->'''Jonathan''': (''[[BringIt wordlessly takes up a fighting stance]]'')
-->'''Dio''': ''[[SarcasmMode Really.]]'' The "let's do battle" stance? [[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe You're not serious.]] No matter how you prepare, human ability is extremely limited and finite! Your Hamon training avails you ''nothing''. It's USELESS, USELESS, '''USELESS, USELESS, USELESS, ''UUUUUUSELEEEEEEESS!''''' A mere ''monkey can never defeat a lion!'' In comparison to ''my'' power... (''leaps at Jonathan'') ...'''YOU ARE BUT A MERE ''MONKEY,'' JOJO!'''

** Actually, him not being as badass as he would be in Part 3 is up for debate. In Part 3, the main character doesn't have Hamon, which is a weakness so great to Dio that even with a certain borderline StoryBreakerPower in his possession, he's still wary and fights the main hero (for the most part) alone. Here in Part 1, Dio is outnumbered and facing the greatest Hamon users and beats them through sheer cleverness.

** Jonathan using the HeroicSacrifice of Will Zeppeli in order to [[CurbStompBattle easily kill Tarkus, who had dominated the fight because the former couldn't attack metal]]. [[TookALevelInBadass Jonathan breaks the chain, and a whole lot of bones, too!]] It's even better in the anime because of the music, as seen when Tarkus finally disintegrates into nothing, leaving only his armor behind. The grand soundtrack goes silent as we witness this defeat... Then the camera cuts to Jonathan's stern expression, with blood on one side of his face and a SingleTear streaked down his other eye, all while an ominous horn blares and the screen tints magnenta for the {{eyecatch}}. We learn from this that if you push the kind Jonathan too far, he may bend his gentleman tactics to ensure '''your''' destruction.
