* IdiotBall: Koichi grabs a hold of it during the Sheer Heart Attack arc. Instead of using Echoes to protect himself from the bomb as advised by Jotaro, Koichi instead opts to track down the bomb's user. This oversight leads to the bomb exploding and Jotaro nearly getting killed trying to protect Koichi.



* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler:Kira, a serial killer who murders women and cuts off their hands, has his own hand ripped off just before he's dragged into the afterlife. For bonus poetic justice, his very first victims (a young girl and her dog) are the ones to do it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ReverseWhodunnit: Kira is revealed almost immediately after his introduction to be the SerialKiller who murdered Reimi (along with many other victims in the town of Morioh), but the protagonists don't know until he slips up when Shigechi accidentally takes [[ALoveToDismember one of his severed hands]] due to it being in an identical bag to his sandwich. [[spoiler:It goes even further when Kira murders and steals the identity of another man: we get several scenes, and even a VillainEpisode, of him attempting to fit in with his new "family", while trying to resist the urge to kill, but the protagonists are left unaware of his new identity until the very last fight.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RunningOverThePlot: Inverted. The main villain Yoshikage Kira is ultimately defeated when [[spoiler:an ambulance accidentally runs over his head when he's lying on the street after Jotaro beats him up.]]


* LackOfEmpathy: Subverted with Jotaro and Josuke: when it seems like Okuyasu has been killed by Red Hot Chili Pepper, Koichi breaks into panicked tears, while Jotaro and Josuke apparently coldly discuss the aforementioned Stand's capability. When Koichi angrily calls him out on this, it turns out they were only certain that Okuyasu would make it out alive because of Crazy Diamond's power.

** Several villains, however, play this trope horrifyingly straight.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: The first few chapters assume that you are aware that Jotaro defeated Dio in Egypt, Dio's Stand "The World" was capable of freezing time, and Jotaro had learned that Stand power himself.

Added DiffLines:

* FoodBasedSuperpowers: Tonio Trussardi is an Italian chef whose Stand, named Pearl Jam, grants curative properties to the food he prepares. Each dish has a specific effect (for example, his Spaghetti Alla Puttanesca can treat dental cavities).


* {{Mondegreen}}: The third anime opening contains the line "let the joy of love give you an answer" in GratuitousEnglish. Due to the singer's {{Engrish}}, it sounds like "let the joy of love give you cancer".

* MookMaker: Part 4 features a [[spoiler: pair of]] mystical bow and arrows that can induce stands in people, used to create most of the stand users in Part 3, and passed on through different characters ([[spoiler:Keicho Nijimura, Akira Otoishi and Yoshihiro Kira]]) in Part 4 as they create more stand users to hassle the protagonists and further their own ends.

Set in 1999, this part stars the friendly, confident high school student Josuke Higashikata, the son of an extramarital affair between [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency Joseph Joestar]] and a Japanese college student. [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Jotaro Kujo]] travels to the northeastern Japanese town of Morioh to track down Josuke in order to sort out his placement in the aging Joseph's will, as well as warn him of a dangerous Stand user Joseph foretold. After encountering this Stand user, Jotaro and Josuke learn that he obtained his Stand as the result of being struck with an ancient arrow fired from a bow used by a local high school student. Jotaro stays in town to find the bow and arrow, believed to be the source of the Joestar family's Stands, while Josuke encounters multiple Stand users created as a result of the arrow, including classmates Koichi Hirose and Okuyasu Nijimura and local famous manga author Rohan Kishibe. After the bow and arrow is retrieved, and Josuke reunited with his father, the group learns from the earthbound ghost of a murder victim that there is a Stand-using serial killer loose in town. Josuke and his friends must find the murderer, Yoshikage Kira, before his murder spree continues, thwarted by several other Stand users created by a second bow and arrow.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: While Rohan may be a grouchy, grudging InsufferableGenius, his anger with Josuke for trying to scam him out of his money, unprovoked, was quite justified.


* DancingTheme: To acknowledge the shift in tone to a more SliceOfLife style, Part 4's anime uses a more lighthearted disco/funk theme ("[[EarWorm Crazy Noisy Bizarre Town]]" by The Du) with 2D animation, in stark contrast to the first three season's hotblooded, CGI animation-filled themes. Most of the characters (Josuke, Koichi, Okuyasu, Yukako, and Tonio, for example) dance and pose along with the music, while [[TheComicallySerious Jotaro]] just stoically walks on by, though he does smile and pose a little bit, turning his signature finger-point into a [[Film/SaturdayNightFever John Travolta-type pose]], denoting his CharacterDevelopment.
