Beacon Academy was already a strange place to begin with, but with the trickster of the Joestar bloodline now attending the school, Team RWBY's and Team JNPR's next four years here are now guaranteed to be truly bizarre.
Joseph Joestar: Hamon Hunter is a crossover between RWBY and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure written by lolrus555. After defeating Kars, Joseph was somehow transported to Remnant, but with his hand intact and the Red Stone of Aja in tow. This new world seems completely different, but Joseph discovers that there's more to this alternate world than meets the eye.
This fic contains examples of
- Adaptational Badass: Joseph was already a badass in Part 2 and Part 3, but he gets the best of both Parts in this fic. Not only is he at the prime of his youth and hamon training, he gets Hermit Purple much earlier and even uses some battling techniques of Jonathan.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: Joseph gets Hermit Purple at the prime of his youth (18) instead of when he's much older (67). Justified, since Dio has most likely gained stand powers at this point in Remnant's reality.
- Adaptational Villainy: Avdol wasn't so lucky in this reality, and fell victim to Dio's flesh buds. Thankfully, Joseph saves him and he becomes an ally like in canon.
- Age Lift: In the original canon of part 2 Joseph was 18 however, in this fan fiction he is 17 since he is now attending Beacon Academy, his age was reduced by a year so he can fit in with the rest of the RWBY cast.
- Alternate Universe: An interesting variation. The World of Remnant is largely the same, but it has an alternate history to the JoJo timeline. In this reality, Erina died with Jonathan on the ship, ending the Joestar bloodline. Speedwagon married in this reality, and the Speedwagon foundation is run by one of his decedents. Avdol seemingly fells victim to Dio's mind control, and Rohan Kishibe shows up as well. What makes things even more complicated is the appearance of Diego Brando, who's part of the Steel Ball Run timeline and is the alternate counterpart of Dio, yet in this world, his last name is Aureo and he seems to have a connection to the Joestar bloodline.
- Brutal Honesty: In the pool omake, Yang asks Weiss and Blake a rhetorical question about how Joseph dresses. They don't sugarcoat anything.Weiss: Like a male stripper.
Blake: Like a prostitute.
- Dreaming of Times Gone By: Early on in the story, Joseph has dreams about Jonathan Joestar's life. However, it turns out that this Jonathan Joestar isn't his grandfather.
- Female Gaze: A Running Gag of the story is the girls noticing how attractive Joseph is. Whenever he's shirtless, someone comments on it or gets a nosebleed.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: Played With. While he wasn't sent to a different time period, several instances in the story where Joseph expresses either awe or distaste at Remnant's futuristic commodities make it clear that he's having difficulties adjusting to RWBY's science-fantasy setting, fitting the bill nicely. Two prime examples of this are him repeatedly having trouble operating his scroll and wearing a 1930s appropriate wetsuit to Beacon's pool, the latter being much to Yang's (and Blake's) disappointment.
- Gratuitous English: It wouldn't be Joseph Joestar without this. He lets out a few as he crashes through trees.
- Mythology Gag:
- In his first appearance, Rohan Kishibe gets the shit beat out of him by a teenager with a literal Hair-Trigger Temper. Sound familiar?
- Diego's last name in this world is Aureo, a reference to Part 5.
- One Steve Limit: Oddly enough, both Dio Brando and Diego Brando exist in Remnant's mythos. Diego took the nickname due to the history behind it, but his last name is Aureo instead.
- Power at a Price: The good news? The people in this reality of Remnant can unlock Stands! The catch? They will lose access to their Aura that's because...
- As stated in chapter 15 "one's stand is the true power of one's aura. It's a reflection of the user's psyche, personality, soul, and just what they're truly capable of. And even if they do unlocked their Aura they only harnessed a fraction of their true powers, which is in fact a semblance. And they have no hope to unlocking a Stand. That's because "no individual can possess a stand in tandem with an aura and/or semblance."
- And as shown in the same chapter When Yang wanted to unlocked Joseph's own Aura it ended up making an explosion. And in a another chapter when Ruby wanted to fight Joseph during their combat classes, Professor Goodwitch puts up the monitor for their Aura health bar's while Ruby's is normal Joseph.... well let's just say they're some "technical issues".
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: The stand-using JoJos aren't around, but Joseph makes up for it by using the original; his grandfather's Sunlight Yellow Overdrive. Yang gets in on the action too.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The Joestar secret technique, naturally.
- You Remind Me of X: Joseph tells Weiss that she reminds him of Caesar, comparing how she and Ruby interact to how he and Caesar used to.
