Go To

Remnant's Bizarre Adventure: Beacon is Unbreakable is a RWBY and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure crossover, written by The Inkasters, or more specifically gorilla_fingers. This fic focuses on Josuke Higashikata, the illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar and resident of the mysterious Morioh Town colony, returning to the wider world of Remnant and learning within Beacon Academy with the intention of competing within the Vale Festival. He’s also joined by his two friends Koichi and Okuyasu, and they encounter the RWBY cast as they teach each other how things work in their respective worlds. However, not everything is innocent academy hijinks and occasional Grimm hunting. Dark forces from Morioh's past join with Cinder for her plans. And with the appearance of Stands, things are going to get a bit more... bizarre. If you want to know how bizarre things can get with the showy and stylish RWBY battles being coupled with the tactics as well as the mystery of JoJo, read it here.

This fic has examples of:

  • Adaptational Badass: As the settlers of Morioh decided to train children in the art of using Stands, many characters that either did not possess stands or did but awoke them much later in their life possess them now.
    • Joseph possessed his Stand whilst he was a teenager fighting the Pillar Men, as accounted by Stroheim.
    • Jolyne, only 10 years old, is close to awakening her Stand much earlier than in canon. Her mother believes it has to do with her Joestar genes.
    • Tomoko, Josuke's mother, is a full fledged Huntress with a Stand of her own.
    • Ryohei, Josuke's grandfather, was a full fledged Huntsman before he passed away. As all Huntsman in Morioh possess Stands, Ryohei assumedly had one himself.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Played with in regards to the nature of Stands. In canon, a Stand is a manifestation of a persons spirit, and could manifest in one of three ways: naturally born, a reaction via bloodline, or from surviving the Stand Arrow. Stands were in turn believed to be a result of the mystical properties of the Arrows, crafted from a meteorite. Here, Stands are an alternative form of Aura. As the Frontier was lacking in resources to constantly replace weaponry and Aura was insufficient on its own, they were left nearly helpless till the arrival of William Zeppeli, bearing a Stand Arrow. In exchange for the people of the Frontier helping him complete his goal, he would allow them to take the "Test of the Arrow", in which they were shot by the Arrow and had their aura reshaped into a Stand. However, the Test of the Arrow proved too dangerous, having a mortality rate of 7/10 people, so future huntsmen were trained as Children in the art of molding their Aura's into Stands, finding the aura of a Child was more malleable than that of an adult. Once Morioh was secure, the arrow was locked away, and training Children became the norm.
  • Alternate Universe: While for the most part the RWBY portion of the crossover remains the same in origin, the Jojo's portion is much different.

    • 100 years ago, shortly before the Great War, the four kingdoms sent expeditions into the Grimmlands in the hopes of colonizing it, both to expand humanities territory and claim more land before the other kingdoms could. Communication went dark however, and when search parties were sent, all that was found were massacres along the likes of Kuroyuri and Mt. Glenn. One settlement managed to survive the carnage however, the village of Morioh. The surviving settlers banded together, disregarding all forms of nationalism and racial tendencies for the sake of survival. Led by the likes of Johnathan Joestar, Robert E.O. Speedwagon, and William Zeppeli, Morioh managed to survive while simultaneously producing huntsmen capable of using Stands.
    • The practitioners of Hamon existed as a band of travelling monks allied with Zeppeli, and doubled as informants for the proceedings of the outside world. Until their then leader, Straizo, betrayed them.

    • The Pillar Men were believed to be a form of humanoid Grimm, and were stopped due to the efforts of Joseph Joestar, armed with his Stand Hermit Purple. Rudolf von Stroheim, a Mantle Operative on an assignment that led to him crossing paths with Joseph, tried to recount his tales to rest of the world, but was lauded as a madman.
    • 18 years ago, the fortune teller Muhammad Avdol traveled to Morioh, warning of a disaster that would befall Remnant at the hands of Dio Brando if not dealt with. To this end, the Stardust Crusaders were formed, led by Morioh Leader Joseph Joestar. During their travels they temporarily met with a pair of orphans, Nora Valkyrie and Lie Ren, before going their separate ways. Noriaki Kakyoin, Iggy, and Avdol would all lose their lives to Dio, while Joseph and Jotaro would return to Morioh. Polnareff however would instead go on his own, tasked by Joseph with looking into any potential Stand phenomena, only to discover the existence of another Arrow in Mistral, owned by the Mafia group Passione.
  • Big Good: Ozpin, Jotaro, and Joseph share this role.
  • Body Horror: Being a crossover with JoJo's, this is a given. But it’s especially obvious when Jotaro and team RWBY face off against Bug-Eaten.
  • Cassandra Truth: After the events of Battle Tendency, Rudolf von Stroheim tried to reveal what he'd seen to the rest of Remnant, even going as far as to publish an autobiography dubbed The Post War World. However, due to the bizarreness of his stories and his own eccentricities, Stroheim was disregarded as a madman.
  • Darker and Edgier: Due to crossing over with JoJo's, the RWBY characters get into situations that involve blood, cursing, serious injuries, and serious angst.
  • Dark Secret: It turns out Pyrrha got into Beacon in the first place to escape from Mistral, partly because mobs like the Passione were trying to make her work with them and partly because she had grown bored being the best of the best. Pyrrha is ashamed by the implications of this and how her friends, specifically Jaune, would think of her if they found out.
  • Didn't Think This Through:
    • Yang goes off to try and attack Bruno, an enemy she had never seen before or heard off. She went up against an enemy without knowing their full capabilities, which to be fair is typical in normal RWBY fights. However, going in without a plan and just throwing punches ends up with Sticky Fingers taking off Yang’s arm, albeit temporarily.
    • Played for Drama with Joseph marrying Suzy-Q He married a fun and attractive woman without really getting to know her, and realizes far too late that he was not in love with her but was trapped in the marriage due to his responsibilities.
  • Foil: Josuke and Yang have many parallels to one another. Both have had a parent absent in their lives (Josuke with being Joseph’s illegitimate son, Yang with her mother running out on her and her father), both have cheerful and jokey personalities, and both do secretly yearn for their parents while also having complicated emotions mixed with that yearning. And of course, both of them have a literal Hair-Trigger Temper.
  • Genre Shift: Due to the very nature of this crossover, the action-orientated battles of RWBY are discarded in favor of the more strategic, slower-paced ones that the JoJo series is known for.
  • In-Joke: Josuke's Team, Team JOJO, is this in a nutshell because the "Suke" part of Josuke's name can also be read as "Jo". Naturally, this is because Okuyasu and Koichi utilized this trope to their full advantage.
  • Parental Issues: Yang and Josuke obviously have these. However, Josuke's presence made Yang's bitterness towards Raven resurface and she tends to project some of her issues on Joseph, Josuke’s father.
  • Retcon: In this timeline, it was Nora and Ren who traveled with Jotaro's group to find Dio instead of Anne (the runaway girl). They stayed until Iggy joined the team, who Nora convinced to stay with the Stardust Crusaders.
  • Small, Secluded World: Morioh is one, due to being cut off from meaningfully communicating with the other kingdoms of Remnant and the Kingdoms not even knowing of their existence until the beginning of the story.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Neapolitan is a tad bit obsessed with Koichi and occasionally stalks him, and spends time with him while in her disguise.
  • Super OCD: Neapolitan has an obsession with making EVERYTHING half, from the colors of her room (pink and brown) to her daily routine (Half of the day is spent working for Roman, the other half on personal hobbies) down to the minute.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Joseph is, of course, this due to cheating on Suzie-Q with Tomoko Higashikata. However, it’s made clear that it had partially been due to the fact that Joseph realized far too late within his marriage that he did not love Suzy-Q. And that he slept with Tomoko because he did come to love her romantically. Needless to say, Josuke’s birth had lead to the end of the affair.
