*** 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.

* 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.

* 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.
