Main Heroes


    Jonathan Joestar (Stand: Ultimate Hermit Purple) 
Son of George Joestar and Dio's older brother. He is a master of Hamon and an Archaeology Major. Later he gains the use of the "Ultimate Hermit Purple" thanks to being hit with the stand arrow.
  • The Ace: He is one of the best Hamon fighters in the world. And after 100 years, he was the only one to gain a stand using the stand arrow, whereas it's noted that everyone else died when hit by the arrow.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the original, young Jojo was incredibly strong, athletic, and a good boxer; Dio just happened to be even more skilled. Here, he's pretty much over-classed Dio in every way, was a proficient Hamon user, and acquired the strongest stand via the arrow, where it's noted that everyone else who got hit by it died.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: It's not through being a Joestar alone that everyone respects and fears Jonathan.
  • Bash Brothers: With Dio.
  • Berserk Button: Crossdressing, courtesy of George I. Hell, even mentioning his father's name will make him react the same way Dio did with his father in the actual manga.
  • Big Brother Bully: Has well-meaning intentions towards Dio, but the results look like this is happening. Though that is a reason for him bring a coffin to his own wedding party just to prank Dio.
  • Big Good: He is both the patriarch and most powerful member of the Joestar group.
  • Blood Brothers: With Dio, by the end of Dio's Bizarre Adventure. In a literal sense too, since Dio still ends up with Jonathan's body (with Jonathan taking George's body in turn).
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Shares this dynamic with Dio. Exactly which of them is either the Boke or Tsukkomi varies though.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Whenever he uses Hamon.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Big time. Both Joseph and Jotaro inherited this from him.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: He serves as this to Dio, making sure that Dio's rampant curiosity doesn't get him into too much trouble.
  • Cuckoosnarker: Jonathan is one of the kookiest characters, whose quirks have included, but are not limited to, making fun of Dio whenever he gets the chance, having a hellhound as a pet and does "Dio-telling" when he runs out of ideas. He can also be quite snarky when he gets the urge.
    Jonathan: (to Dio) "'Ow?' What hurts? Your fashion sense?"
  • Freak Out: When he learns that the body he is using is his father's body, he went on a rampage that lasted a day.
  • Genius Bruiser: Even more powerful than his original incarnation, and no less knowledgeable.
  • Happily Married: To Erina, who is a very large woman in this story.
  • In the Blood: He retroactively establishes Joseph and Jotaro's complete Cloud Cuckoolander tendencies. He also passed onto Jotaro his hard head, figuratively and literally.
  • Irrational Hatred: Develops one after killing his father for wearing his pocket watch. Which is funny since it's shown that he respects his father up to that point, even overlooking his crossdressing tendencies.
  • The Jinx: Every ship he rides is bound to malfunction and sink. It can be presumed that he activated his curse when the ship they used for the wedding exploded, as Jotaro's curse was activated the same way.
  • Nice Guy: He's still a nice guy, even hesitating to kill Dio when the latter was on a rampage. As long as you don't ever mention his father's name or crossdress in his manor, as Dio and Nukesaku found out the hard way.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Contributed to Bruford and Tarkus turning into zombies by punching Dio in the face to stop him from pulling a lever. The blood he drew dripped into the coffins, which revived the pair as zombies who immediately tried to kill him and Dio.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Is stated to be 120 years old as of JJBA yet looks like he didn't age a day thanks to his Hamon abilities.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Kills George I for using his pocketwatch to cover his groin. Notably, no one holds this against Jonathan (possibly because they are too afraid to.)
  • Skewed Priorities: He forgives Dio for attacking him and burning the Joestar manor down, but kills George for using his pocket watch as underwear.
  • Superpower Lottery: Gained the "Ultimate Hermit Purple" stand or ULPU for short. Nearly all its stats are infinity with the exception of accuracy and growth.
  • Walking Wasteland: To the point where there is an alarm whenever he activates ULPU. It's shown that his rampage has destroyed fields and even a mountain.
  • World's Strongest Man: Even more so than his canon counterpart that Dio Brando is very afraid of his wrath even if it's not directed at him. He even grows stronger 100 years later when he gains the Ultimate Hermit Purple stand.

    Dio Brando (Stand: The World) 
Jonathan's adoptive brother and the focus of Dio's Bizarre Adventure. Here, he is not a jerkass unlike the manga, and has a very close relationship with Jonathan, even if he does not like to admit it.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Unlike the original series, Dio here is completely on the side of good and a firm ally of the Joestars.
  • Awesome by Analysis: He is able to imitate Jonathan's Hamon technique just by watching him while the latter trains. He was successfully able to create Hamon in one try.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: He retains all of his downright creepy vampire powers from canon, but only uses them for good.
  • Bash Brothers: With Jonathan.
  • Blood Brothers: With Jonathan, by the end of Dio's Bizarre Adventure. In a literal sense too, since Dio ends up taking Jonathan's body and thus becoming a Joestar by blood, even if under different circumstances than canon.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Shares this dynamic with Jonathan. Exactly which of them is either the Boke or Tsukkomi varies though.
  • Butt-Monkey: This universe is not kind to Dio Brando. He gets adopted by the absolutely bonkers Joestars, accidentally turns himself into a vampire, and dragged to really bizarre situations he'd rather not get part of.
  • Cool Uncle: Or rather great-great-granduncle to Jotaro. Not than Jotaro would ever admit it.
  • Curiosity Is a Crapshoot: Dio's curiosity gets him into trouble quite often, with Jonathan being forced to bail him out.
    • When he discovers the Stone Mask in Jonathan's drawer, he immediately decides to put it on. Right after accidentally cutting himself. He promptly turns into a vampire and wrecks the mansion.
    • He also gets caught in a very obvious trap in the tomb of Tarkus and Bruford.
  • Drunk with Power: He was accidentally hit in the back of his head with a flesh bud thanks to it bouncing back from Jotaro's head. Amusingly, this caused him to assume Canon!Dio's personality and even has the same mannerisms as his canon counterpart.
  • Forced Kiss: Erina's first kiss was forced onto Dio. It doesn't end well for Dio, as Jonathan showed him.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: This Dio remains friends with Jonathan after becoming a vampire (which was accidental in the first place), and doesn't intentionally hurt anyone with his new powers.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Channels Hamon himself defeat Tarkus and save Jonathan, despite knowing that it will have the same effect on him that sunlight does. Luckily, he was able to cut off his head and attached it to Jonathan's body.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: In a reversal of his memetic scene, this Dio loves dogs even if that dog is a flaming hellhound.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Despite being a much nicer person and specifically not wanting to lose his humanity, he still turns into a vampire and takes Jonathan's body. This time because he decided to try on the Stone Mask without knowing what it did, and later lost his own body using Hamon to kill Tarkus.
  • Kick the Dog: Like in canon, Dio kicks Danny. Unlike in canon, this is during his rampage after being turned into a vampire, and a sign that Dio is Not Himself.
  • The Lancer: To Jonathan.
  • Large Ham: Of course. This is DIO we're talking about.
  • Mundane Utility: He uses his vampiric superpowers to excel at rugby.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He accidentally turned Tarkus and Brufort into zombies when his blood dripped into cracks in their coffins.
  • Off with His Head!: Dio does this to himself in order to not be affected by his own Ripple and accidentally pulls a Grand Theft Me on Jonathan's body.
  • Power High: He took a massive boost of power after he got hit in the back of the head by a flesh bud. His personality was switched to canon!Dio's personality, even declaring his Kick the Dog tendencies.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Is stated to be 120 years old like his stepbrother and looks like he didn't age a day thanks to his vampire powers.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Jonathan is still the main focus of the first webcomic with Dio going along for the ride. He's given the chance to shine in his fight with Tarkus and how he saved the others from the exploding ship.
  • Time Master: Of course this is Dio we're talking about.
  • Was Once a Man: In this continuity, he wound up a vampire by complete accident; he tried on the Stone Mask right after getting a cut on his finger.
  • Weakened by the Light: Which comes with being a vampire. He was almost killed by Arabia Fats cause of this.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: When it looks like nothing bad will happen there would always be an accident that would make his life miserable.

    Joseph Joestar (Stand: Hermit Purple) 
Jonathan's grandson and Jotaro's grandfather. He was called to Egypt by his grandfathers to investigate the stone mask and to track down whoever stole it in the first place.
  • Back from the Dead: Like the others who got hit by their canon fates, he got his blood sucked dry by Straizo and was sent to the museum as a mummy display. He was revived by a blood transfusion.
  • Fountain of Youth: Hamon keeps him young. He actually never aged after Battle Tendency, and takes the form of an old man in Stardust Crusaders because no one believes him when he says that a teenager is the CEO of Joestar Real Estate.
  • Captain Crash: Exaggerated from canon. It's said to be a curse of his, much like how Jonathan always sinks ships he sails on and Jotaro crashes cars.
    Joseph: Out of all 299 plane rides I've ridden, all 299 planes crashed. But I think we'll be fine
  • The Charmer: Was able to charm Mariah into deleting the embarrassing photos of him and Avdol with his young appearance.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He's odd and is a crossdresser. It seems to be a familial trait, as Jonathan and Jotaro can attest.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's cool enough to buy tickets to an amusement park for everyone, and he's respected by nearly everyone.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: When he's wearing the tequila outfit in his old man appearance.
  • The Gadfly: Does the same prank he did to Jotaro towards Caesar and Avdol. Both are not amused.
  • Gratuitous English: This is Joseph Joestar we're talking about.
  • The Jinx: He can't ride a plane without it crashing, an exaggeration on his bad luck with planes in the manga.
  • Manchild: He likes to crossdress, throw pranks at anyone, and decided to buy tickets to an amusement park instead of calling Dio as Avdol suggested.
  • Show Some Leg: Does this to Mariah to persuade her to not post the picture of him in drag on Twitter.
  • Slept Through the Apocalypse: He was revived by Caesar via blood transfusion, but was knocked out by the latter's punch thanks to his prank.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Likes to wear his Tequila Joseph dress. Somehow manages to hide the whole thing underneath his normal clothes... which include a pair of pants.

    Jotaro Kujo (Stand: Star Platinum) 
Jonathan's great-great-grandchild and the hero of Bizarre Summer Break. He is a delinquent who refuses to come out of his home until his grandfather Joseph visits the Kujo household. It's also noted that he's a stand user since birth.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Thanks to his Manchild tendencies. He speaks his mind without any filter, will turn his back from messy situations he caused, and insult people without thinking.
  • Awesome by Analysis: He has a near-encyclopedic knowledge of animals and also knowledgeable of other cultures ( though Kakyoin taught him that one) as he shows in the luxury liner.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Arrived in the nick of time to save his uncle Dio from Arabia Fat's stand.
  • Chuunibyou: Described as such by his grandfather.
  • Childhood Friends: With Kakyoin, ever since he learned that Kakyoin has a stand.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Oh so much so that he's unrecognizable from his original characterization. Not a bad thing since this trait made him more endearing to the readers.
  • Cowardly Lion: Tries not to show fear whenever someone tells a scary story or if he encounters anything unnatural such as his Identical Stranger Oingo. Even the mention of a baby ghost is enough for Star Platinum to reflect his frightened mental state.
  • Cry Cute: Cried when Polnareff was about to board his flight. It changed Polnareff's mind into staying at the last minute.
  • Curiosity Is a Crapshoot: He will disregard every single warning and keeps getting into trouble. Only Kakyoin and Polnareff can keep him in line.
  • Determinator: Nothing can stop him from saving Dio, even unintentionally activating his own Joestar curse on the way.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Of course, he had just commandeered a car and was desperately trying to save Dio at the time. It still activates his Joestar Curse- any car that he's in will inevitably crash in some way.
  • FanBoy: Of Polnareff, and the concept of justice in general. He's also a big fan of Steely Dan and even received his signature after giving the latter a pep talk.
  • Geek: Socially inept, but also a huge fanboy of several things, such as the concept of being a hero.
  • Genius Ditz: Is a total manchild and isn't bright most of the time. However, he was able to trick Enya into revealing herself and was able to out-trick DIO in their fight.
  • Genre Savvy: Played for Laughs. He was able to identity Polnareff as a stand user thanks to his Ass Kicking Pose.
  • Identical Grandson: To his grandfather Joseph to the point he mistakes the latter as his Doppelgänger when Joseph wore his clothes.
  • Innocently Insensitive: This Jotaro says whatever on his mind, usually insulting people without meaning to. He calls Avdol ugly many times before he learns his real name and commented on ZZ's weird arms, which sets him off so much he broke his chains and chased after them.
  • Irrational Hatred: The reason he's pissed at DIO? DIO promised to visit him again but didn't for 10 years.
  • The Jinx: Unknowingly activated his curse by crashing Senator Phillip's car. Now he can't ride a car without crashing it.
  • Manchild: He's turning 18 in a few months so he counts. This Jotaro is very socially inept, gets easily scared by ghost stories and acts like a really young kid even holding a petty grudge against DIO for almost 10 years just because he didn't visit him like he promised.
  • The Stoic: Or tries to be. No one else is fooled by his attempts to be cool.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Makes decisions that would have killed or severely injured him (falling in a whirlpool, insulting ZZ, stopping his heart as a prank to DIO). The only reason why he's not dead is that his allies keep close watch over him.
  • Tsundere: Type 1 in general, but especially towards Dio.

  • Captain Obvious: Used his special cards to predict that they are facing a stand user. While inside a labyrinth that can only be created by a stand user.

  • Kill It with Fire: Destroys the fake Avdols that Jotaro had wished.

    Kakyoin: No, it's a shit.
    Jotaro: You're saying that I'm a shit to you?
  • Dragged by the Collar: Kakyoin had zero intention of accompanying the Joestar group to Egypt, preferring to spend his summer break relaxing at home. Unfortunately, Jotaro was very...insistent (knocking Kakyoin out and dragging him along while unconscious).
  • Gut Punch: Still got a hole in his stomach, this time courtesy of Straizo. He got better.
  • Last Breath Bullet: He didn't die, but was able to repay Straizo back by tearing his body apart with an emerald splash.
  • Likes Older Women: He even says the same quote as in the manga.
  • Only Sane Man: Relatively speaking, compared to everyone else.
  • The So-Called Coward: Acts like a coward during his fight with Straizo, but was stalling for time to possess the hostage with his stand. He was able to impress Straizo with his tactics and ability to fight.
  • Straight Man: Most of the humor Kakyoin provides is his contrast with the other characters' bizarreness.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Jotaro, though it's more on his end. He constantly chastises Jotaro for being reckless and a huge Manchild sometimes, but they're very close.

    Jean-Pierre Polnareff (Stand: Silver Chariot) 
A globetrotting hero of justice who hunts down stand users that are abusing their stands for evil. Ever since his sister Sherry died, he took up the sword to prevent such evil from hurting anyone again.
  • Berserk Button: Don't ever mention J.Geil's name.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's one of the friendliest characters, yet if you mention J.Geil's name or anger him he gets angry to the point his stand manifests as a monstrous creature.

  • Combat Pragmatist: The second he realizes that Ebony Devil's user is in the mini-fridge, he tapes it up and throws it out the window.
  • Cool Big Sis: Big brother version. Jotaro looks up to him for being a "Stand user of justice". He is even this to Sherry and is the reason why he got attached to Jotaro.
  • For Great Justice: Is famous for embodying this, and looked up to by Jotaro for this.
  • Fighting Your Friend: After being possessed by Anubis, he fights Jotaro and Iggy.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Hol Horse.
  • Irony: Calls himself a "Stand User of Justice" yet has a hard time keeping it together when facing his demons to the point that he acts villainous and Silver Chariot even turns monstrous in design.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He doesn't need a stand to chase and punch a hole in someone's torso.
  • My Name Is Inigo Montoya: After remembering how Jotaro stopped him from pummeling Enya, he gave an epic one to J.Geil as his farewell gift before killing him.
    Polnareff: "My name is J.P. Polnareff! In the name of my sister's soul so that my sister can rest in peace... I shall defeat you"
    Polnareff: "I'll leave the rest to the devil."

Jonathan's childhood friend and fiance. For some reason, she grows up to be an 18-foot giant in the story.

  • Childhood Friend Romance: Jonathan and she are childhood friends and love each other, though that still doesn't stop her from stealing Dio's first kiss.

  • The Cameo: was shown in a few scenes visiting and looking over Holy.

Servants of Jonathan and Dio

    In General 

  • Adaptational Heroism: Since Dio is good and firmly allied with Jonathan, the same goes for many of his servants. Most who aren't directly allied with the Joestars are instead neutral/unaffiliated.

    Daniel J. D'Arby (Stand: Osiris) 
One of Dio's servants in the Joestar mansion. His stand is Osiris, which can take the souls of people who lose in games against him.

    Terence J. D'Arby (Stand: Atum) 
One of Dio's servants in the Joestar mansion. His stand is Atum, which can take the souls of people who lose in video games against him.
  • The Comically Serious: He skates on the floor as his introduction.
  • Friendly Rivalry: To Kakyoin, to the point he invites the latter is playing with a very rare version of F-Mega when he heard he was going back to Japan.
  • The Jeeves: is this to both Jonathan and Dio.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Jonathan and Dio to the point that they willingly let themselves be questioned with a fleshbud attached to their head.

    Vanilla Ice (Stand: Cream) 
One of Dio's servants in the Joestar mansion. His stand is Cream, which can create a pocket dimension and send stuff that it hits over there.
  • The Comically Serious: This Vanilla Ice is very fond of putting holes in the manor walls, making it look like swiss cheese. Terence notes that he does this every day.
  • Emergency Transformation: Is transformed into a vampire to save his life after he cuts off his own head, like in canon.
  • Not So Different: Destroys a wall to let Jotaro inside Dio's room read his Diary.
  • Odd Friendship: Formed a bond with Avdol after their fight with Kenny G.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Played for Laughs just like Avdol, he snapped easily when they lost track of Kenny G.
    Vanilla Ice: "How Annoying!"
  • There Was a Door: Remember when Vanilla Ice left a room through a wall in canon? This Vanilla Ice makes a habit of doing this.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He still cuts off his head when Dio asks for his blood... but this time, all Dio wanted was to test the Stone Mask, which only requires that some blood touch it. Dio has to turn him into a vampire to save him.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Jonathan and Dio to the point that they willingly let themselves be questioned with a fleshbud attached to their head.

    N'Doul (Stand: Geb) 
One of Dio's servants in the Joestar mansion. His stand is Geb, which lets him manipulate water in long distances.
  • Fastball Special: In an inversion of their fight, N'doul throws Iggy to stop Jotaro from stepping on a bomb.
  • The Gadfly: Says that he can find Jotaro with his cane, only to say it's a wild guess then says he wants to play shoot the ring after asking the group to throw him a ring.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Jonathan and Dio.
  • Super Senses: Has a very sharp sense of hearing, which is how he knows Jotaro's location and that he was about to step on a bomb.

Dio's pet bird. He's a big fan of Iggy and really wants to be his underling.

One of Dio's servants in the Joestar mansion. His body is put up in display as a warning to those who break the rules of the mansion.


    Gray Fly (Stand: Tower of Gray) 
An old man who has the Tower of Grey stand.
  • Accidental Murder: His stand was crushed by Jotaro's weight when he was knocked out by Kakyoin to prevent him from punching a hole in the plane.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Canon Grey Fly loved causing horrible crashes and ripping out peoples' tongues. This guy just seems to be overly curious and has had his stand in the wrong place at the wrong time.

     Captain Tenille 
The luxury ship's captain. He was killed by Anne after trying to catch her for being a stowaway.

    Hol Horse (Stand: The Emperor) 
A bounty hunter and J.Geils partner until he was killed by Polnareff. Now he and Polnareff are rivals in catching their intended targets.
  • Butt-Monkey: Even more so than the manga. He got pushed out of the boat by an Elephant, was a victim of Enya's attacks, got almost crushed by Jonathan's ULPU, and Polnareff always kills his targets before him. Polnareff even notes that he's good at it.
    Polnareff: "Ah Hol Horse can take it. If there's one thing he's good at, it's having bad luck."
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Hol Horse's Stand can control the bullets from his gun. And this time we was sucessful in shooting coins flying at high speed.

  • Made of Iron: Was fine after being hit by a rampaging elephant and thrown overboard the cruise ship.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Polnareff. Even if Polnareff gets to his target first, he doesn't hold a grudge against him.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Save for one moment.

A young Indian woman and lover of elephants, currently on vacation on the same cruise ship the Jojos are.

A Sakuban monk whose training actually includes chaining himself upside down to a rock, instead of the Crusaders leaving him like that and putting up a sign so no one would free him.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Sabukan monks get triggered very easily by any blunders against them, as Jotaro found out the hard way.
  • Super Speed: He can run so fast that it appears that an automobile is chasing the group down.
  • Training from Hell: ZZ is shown to be chained upside down on a rock and the sign says that he's training and should not be disturbed, this time it's for real.
  • Vow of Celibacy: Explained that all Sabukan monks vow to keep themselves pure and clean. That's why he fainted after seeing an Indian nude photo thrown by Anne.

    Steely Dan 
A Hollywood star who became famous in the movie "Lovers". He is posing as a Kebab seller after reading his script for "Lovers 2". In this version, all of the things he forced Jotaro to do for him while holding Joseph hostage are things that he's supposed to do in his next movie.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Canon!Steely Dan is one of the worst of the assassins sent by Dio, using Joseph as a hostage to humiliate Jotaro. This Steely Dan is an actor, and genuinely friendly.
  • Comical Overreacting: Was so distressed about being found out and learning his role in Lovers 2 is him crying and being a brown-noser that he began to use himself as a bridge while Jotaro stands on top of him.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: In-verse example. He's supposedly kicked the trend of "scumbag boom" of Hollywood actors. And he's nice enough to leave Jotaro an autograph as thanks for inspiring him even after the heavy beatdown he just received.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: On the receiving end of it, only this time Jotaro did it as a way to motivate him for his next movie.

  • Belly Dancer: She appears as her All-Star Battle incarnation.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's a beautiful woman in Belly Dancer clothing. Joseph even lifts up her skirt.

Oingo's brother and an aspiring artist. Although the drawings he made are pure nightmare fuel and creep out whoever reads them.

A taxi driver who looks exactly the same as Jotaro and Boingo's brother.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Not exactly hard to see when he looks like he can be Jotaro's twin.
  • Identical Stranger: Looks exactly like Jotaro so much that Jotaro believes him to be his Doppelgänger.
  • Nice Guy: Offers Jotaro a ride to the Joestar mansion for free after finding out they're look-alikes. And Boingo's threats of disfiguring his face either go right through his head, or he's just taking it as a joke.

A twitter celebrity who has lots of followers. She was able to get an embarrassing picture of Joseph and Avdol and plans to post it online to gain more followers
  • Gonk: Normally she's very attractive, but her most popular tweet is her hideous facial expressions when she's angry.
  • Social Media Before Reason: Wants to upload Joseph and Avdol's risque photo so much that she almost runs over a train while trying to get away.


A corpse accidentally brought to life by Dio's blood.
  • Blood Knight: He's barbaric enough to sever Jonathan's head while the other is caught off-guard.
  • The Brute: Relies on Super Strength and his surprising agility, and is undoubtedly crueler than Bruford.
  • Hero Killer: He managed to behead Jonathan and gave quite a pounding to Dio, whose vampire healing is the only thing that saves him from getting killed. Dio has to sacrifice his body to use Hamon just to kill him.

A corpse accidentally brought to life by Dio's blood.

    Devo the Cursed (Stand: Ebony Devil) 

    Enya Geil (Stand: Justice) 
J.Geil's mother. Basically the same as canon, though with no connection to Dio due to Adaptational Heroism.
  • Avenging the Villain: Tries to take vengeance for her son J. Geil's death.
  • Evil Old Folks: Can you believe that it's possible to see a resemblance between her and her son because of this?
  • I Never Told You My Name: Jotaro catches her with this, like in canon. Unlike in canon, she gives herself away by referring to Polnareff by name, though Jotaro hadn't told her who he was looking for.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: Small enough to get carried in the back by Polnareff.
  • People Puppets: Justice can possess people through their wounds.

A stand that looks like a sword that can possess people to do his bidding.

Another student of Ripple alongside Zeppeli and noted to be Joseph's honorary uncle. He stole the stone mask in an effort to become a vampire and gain eternal life.
  • Adaptational Badass: And how! Straizo was only a starter villain in the manga. This Straizo defeated Joseph in his prime, even using the other's tricks against him, almost killed Kakyoin, set Jotaro and Dio against each other and was able to fend off Jonathan himself.
  • Batman Gambit: Steals the stone mask in hopes that Jonathan and Dio will investigate. He also bets on Joseph flying towards Egypt to know that they are now suspicious of him and Jonathan is currently in Tibet in hopes of meeting him.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: He commits suicide by channeling Hamon into his body to heal Kakyoin after being defeated by Jonathan. Subverted that he is still alive and no one is wiser.

  • Calling Your Attacks: "Space Ripper Stingy Eyes!"
  • Cool Old Guy: Was implied to be one before his Face–Heel Turn.
  • Eye Beam: And he had a blast practicing his eye beams.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He turns into a vampire sometime between DBA and Summer Break Adventure, jealous of Jonathan's power and youth.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: After Kakyoin hits Straizo with Emerald Splash, Dio and Jotaro find him naked while he's regenerating from his wounds.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He is jealous of Jonathan for keeping his youth and being the only one to gain a stand using the arrow.
  • Hero Killer: The closest one in the story. He almost killed Kakyoin with his Eye Beam.
  • Honorary Uncle: To Joseph. Notably, Joseph remembered how he loved him as his grandfather, causing him to momentarily pause in his attack, giving Straizo the chance to throw a knife at Joseph's throat.
  • Implacable Man: After becoming a vampire.
  • I Regret Nothing: Even after everything he's done, he doesn't regret becoming a vampire because he'd rather violently die as a young man than whither away.
  • Immortality Seeker: Even though the Ripple slows aging down, it can't stop it completely, which is why he becomes a vampire.
  • Karma Houdini: He was successfully able to escape from Jonathan after their fight by healing Kakyoin with ripple to look like he committed suicide. And the last time we see him is him walking around the airport where he presumably lives a quiet life.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His appearance introduces conflict to a story that had been a series of comedic vignettes up until that point. Suddenly, the heroes are faced with the very real possibility of being killed.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Wisely retreated when Jonathan finally arrived on the scene. And he made the right decision, as his ULPU has enough power to devastate Egypt though that doesn't stop him from punching Jonathan to prove himself.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Here he's very cunning and was able to predict the protagonist's moves while leading Jonathan to a wild goose chase.
  • The Necromancer: He uses the stone mask to raise an army of zombies.
  • Older Than He Looks: He might be old because of Ripple's natural age reduction, but Straizo can still go head-to-head with Jonathan.
  • Pulling Himself Together: After Kakyoin blows him up.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: His scarf doesn't just look cool, it's made from beetle intestines that let disperse the Ripple and was able to hide 15 grenades. And he uses it to cover himself while fighting Jonathan.

    Kenny G (Stand: Tenor Sax) 
A servant of Straizo. He faced off against Avdol, Iggy, and Vanilla Ice
  • Bizarchitecture: Tenor Sax made DIO's palace into this.
  • Human Aliens: Avdol claims that he is this that's why he cannot seem to sense his presence, though that is a ploy to let Vanilla Ice sneak on him.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Here he was able to trap and evade Vanilla Ice, Iggy and Avdol for a while, even putting up a fight.

    Arabia Fats (Stand: The Sun) 
A servant of Straizo. He cornered Dio with his stand "The Sun", which Dio can't do anything since he'll turn into ash if he removes his covers.
  • Man of Kryptonite: To Dio, who he's working against this time around.
  • Near-Villain Victory: He was this close to eliminating DIO with his stand, a minute more and DIO would have fried in the sun. He was only defeated by Jotaro throwing Senator Philips to him.
  • Power of the Sun: Was almost able to kill DIO with it.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Just like the manga, he (the user) only appears in one panel.

    J. Geil (Stand: Hanged Man) 
A servant of Straizo. This counterpart of J.Geil is already killed by Polnareff before and was resurrected by Straizo as a zombie.
  • Ax-Crazy: He's basically the same J.Geil from the canon-verse.
  • Back from the Dead: Was resurrected by Straizo as a zombie.
  • Back for the Dead: And he was killed again by Polnareff, only this time he was able to deliver the final blow as a 'Stand User of Justice'.
  • Bald of Evil: 100% bald, 100% evil.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Even more so than Straizo. Unlike Straizo, J. Geil has absolutely no comedic moments, being exactly the same sadistic monster he was in canon. Polnareff's fight with him is also probably the most serious in the story, with Polnareff nearly losing control of himself.
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming: And he's raped and murdered quite a few women in order to experience it, including Polnareff's sister, which he gloats about. Even Hol Horse had enough of this so he planned to separate from him as shown from his flashback.
  • Red Right Hand: His most defining feature, a left hand shaped like a right hand.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: He raped Polnareff's sister before killing her. Keep in mind that the confrontation was played very seriously unlike the other fights and Polnareff was very close to losing it.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: The goofy comedy completely evaporates the moment he shows up. Not surprising given he's the same sadistic rapist he was in canon.
  • Your Head Asplode: How he died by Polnareff's hands in their second fight.

How well does it match the trope?
