* GameOverMan: Daniel J. D'Arby appears on the continue screen. Continue, and he says "[[CatchPhrase GOOD!]]" and gives you an approving thumbs-up before sending you back to the Character Select screen. Don't, and his Stand, Osiris, [[JumpScare leaps in from the dark background]]; taking your character's soul by smashing them between its hands and turning them into one of D'Arby's poker chips, as he looks on disappointedly.

** One of DIO and Shadow DIO's special moves is Space Ripper Stingy Eyes, the same EyeBeams he used to fatally wound Jonathan at the end of Part 1 (and was used by Straits in Part 2).
** Nena (One of DIO's Stand assassins) cameos in one of Hol Horse's intros where he dismounts an elephant and bids her farewell. ("Jada, aishiteru ze."[[labelnote:translation]]"See ya. I love ya."[[/labelnote]])

* NonLethalKO: The game makes sure to note (In Japanese) that the loser is "Unlikely to recover". This, too, is a manga reference; any enemy not explicitly killed was listed as "[Name]:RETIRED" at the end of their chapters.

* OffModel: Several instances, sometimes the portraits don't match the style used in the story mode. Also, compare the artwork from the Arcade flyer and the one used in the game; it's understandable, however, because Araki was already drawing Vento Aureo, and the game uses a lot of his older, more gritty art.

* PaletteSwap: Rubber Soul is a yellow recolour of Kakyoin (fitting enough); however, he's also slightly taller and has a slightly different face and animation set.

* WombLevel: In Super Story Mode, the battle against Steely Dan consists of [[UnexpectedGameplayChange a side-scrolling shoot-em-up]] with a shrunken Hierophant Green and Silver Chariot travelling through Joseph's body to combat The Lovers.

Added DiffLines:

* TracedArtwork: The game naturally reuses the artwork from the manga. However, the character of Midler, who is [[TheGhost unseen]] in the original work, is redesigned by author Creator/HirohikoAraki in order to be properly adapted in the game. Her artwork is traced from the character of Yukako Yamagishi of the sequel work, ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable''. [[https://www.reddit.com/r/ShitPostCrusaders/comments/g1nh8m/midler_is_yukakos_mom_confirmed/ Picture here.]]


* CallForward: One of Polnareff's supers has a Stand Arrow fly out of nowhere and [[spoiler:[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureVentoAureo turn Silver Chariot into its Requiem form]]]], putting the opponent to sleep while Polnareff remarks that he can "feel fate within the bow and arrow." (Although Polnareff's still alive this time and the Stand reverts to its previous form afterward.) Furthermore, one of his win vocals translates to him telling the opponent (and the player) that they'll "meet again in the future, in Italy." If you want to be technical, the Arrow could also reference Part 4, where it debuts.

** When DIO dies in most JJV endings, he flies off-screen in the censored version. In the uncensored version? He ''explodes violently.'' Interestingly, it can be uncensored in the HD version, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar and it doesn't get an M rating from that in the US version!]][[note]]In the EU version, it gets a 16+ rating though.[[/note]]

*** His Hamon Crossbow special is the same weapon he used when fighting Wammu. The H version of the move where he fires it backward and the ball whirls around the arena, hitting the opponent from behind, is the same trick he used against Wammu.

*** Hol Horse turns into the kid with Hanged Man in his eye, from Polnareff and Kakyoin's fight against J. Geil.

Mariah, even [[ParasolOfPain using an umbrella as a weapon]] just the same as there.
*** Hol Horse turns into the kid with Hanged Man in his eye, from Polnareff and Kakyoin's fight against J. Geil. In a variation, he ''does'' de-age in his Hol Horse/Boingo incarnation; but [[DirtyCoward hides beneath Boingo's box the whole time and sends Boingo out to fight instead]], taking pot-shots from beneath it with Emperor.


* GoneHorriblyRight: The story for the hidden character "[=JoJo=]" starts with [[DeathByDeaging Alessi]] trying to de-age Joseph with his Stand. It doesn't end well for Alessi: the amount of time Sethan took to de-age Polnareff or Jotaro into kids wound up de-aging Joseph to the age of 19, when he was in his physical prime and an expert in using the power of Hamon.

* MovesetClone: Jotaro and DIO have pretty similar movesets save for their supers. DIO himself has his Shadow form as well. Meanwhile, Kakyoin has both New Kakyoin and Rubber Soul, Polnareff has his Black variation and Hol Horse has a variation with Boingo replacing Hanged Man. Both Josephs also share most normals but have few overlapping specials.
* MultipleEndings: It is a fighting game, so everyone has an ending (Young Joseph and Shadow DIO didn't in JJV), but Avdol and Mariah have two different endings depending on what option the player picked, reminiscent of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun-Li]] and [[VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes Thanos']] endings...although the only problem is, you have to choose between one tarot card from 2 face down cards which you obviously can't see.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGrappler: Joseph Joestar plays like this, though his range is better than most thanks to [[CombatTentacles Hermit Purple]].


* SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou: Hol Horse shoots some holes in some manga panels and then points his gun right at you in JJBA's first AttractMode movie.

Vanilla Ice does the same thing in the second, but he uses his Stand, Cream, to [[PortalCut cut perfectly circular holes in the panels]] instead.

Added DiffLines:

** Khan is an even more extreme version of Black Polnareff: someone picking up the game for the first time can probably figure out his whole kit in about five minutes, but once the player actually knows what they're doing, they'll find his skill ceiling is practically hugging the dirt.

* LethalJokeCharacter: Hol Horse repeatedly proves himself over the course of part 3 to be one of [=DIO's=] most incompetent, cowardly henchmen, constantly relying on his allies and failing despite his extremely powerful Stand. In the right hands, this game's Hol Horse can be a devastating master of keepaway and leading people into ridiculously powerful supers. Even with the version of him who's partnered with Boingo, easily his lowest moments in the manga, can be deadly in the right hands, albeit less so than before.
