With the story hitting Jorge Joestar levels of craziness, expect lots of funny moments in both Dio's Bizzare Adventure and Jojo's Bizarre Summer Break. Sit back and grab some popcorn since this is gonna be a long list.

Due to the nature of the work, all spoilers are UNMARKED.

Dio's Bizarre Adventure

  • Chapter 1 sets off the tone of the story as it introduces our protagonist Dio going down the chariot to meet his new foster family. He is greeted by Jonathan Joestar, who is twice his height and Danny, who is a flaming hellhound.
    Dio: "Hey. He's burning."
    Dio: "He's burning you know? Your beloved dog"
  • Then Erina comes in, suddenly steals his first kiss and proudly proclaims it to Jonathan, who proceeded to beat Dio senseless anyway. George stops the fight, and it's revealed that he's wearing a sailor moon outfit. Dio doesn't know what to make of the situation.
    Erina: "Jojo... Have you ever kissed me? You haven't, have you? My first kiss wasn't with Jojo! It was with Dio!"
    • And at the end, Dio was able to reach his step-brother's height after seven years only to reveal that Erina has far outgrown them all.
  • Chapter 2 has Jonathan trying to introduce Dio to his Hamon master Will Zeppeli, while Dio tries to run away from him thanks to his past experiences with Jonathan's other acquaintances. Jonathan gives him a zoom punch for his troubles.
    Dio: "'Why are you running away' you ask? Of your acquaintances... Not a single one of them is decent Jojo!"
    • Before that Dio recounts his meeting with Speedwagon, who immediately kicks a chandelier to his face.
  • Turns out Zeppeli can only speak "Pa Pow" and Jonathan has to translate for him. Zeppeli explains what how Hamon can be useful and Dio is impressed. Zepelli then crushes his arm and punches him with his pinky to demonstrate his skills in Hamon which, unfortunately for Dio, doesn't work for him for some reason. His arm has to be placed in a cast for 3 months. Dio is not amused and refuses to learn anymore.
    Dio: "I don't want to stop being human Jojo! I don't intend to transcend humanity!"
  • Jonathan mocks Dio's sense of fashion in chapter 3.
    Jonathan: "Ow, What hurts? your sense of fashion?"
  • Advertisement:
  • So Dio is rummaging through Jonathan's desk and finds the stone mask. Sane people would leave it alone but Dio, who cut his finger panels before, curiously put on the mask. He accidentally turns himself to a vampire.
    Jonathan: "Wh-Wh-What do I do? Dio has turned into a vampire! Wow he can stick to the ceiling. He's like a Japanese ninja!"
  • So Dio kicks Danny to Jonathan's face, burning his clothes and the mansion in the process. He proceeds to strip himself naked.
  • So Dio wakes up stabbed in the gut, the mansion is burning and his father dead. Jonathan recounts how everything happened: Dio is out of his mind and keeps trying to kill Jonathan. Jonathan, the gentleman he is, hesitates to kill his step-brother. But the sight of his father wearing his pocket-watch like a loincloth snapped something inside the well-mannered gentleman, killing him in a fit of rage. He proceeds to carry Dio out of the burning mansion by stabbing him with the statue and carrying both outside. Even Dio doesn't know how to react when he's told of this.
    Jonathan: I kinda... How to put it... Lost it? My Mind? Anyway all of a sudden there was this *sharp stab* sound and I think I probably stabbed dad in a fatal spot.
  • Chapter 6 has Jonathan wracking his brain for a thesis subject while ignoring Dio pointing out the weird stuff happening around him. His way of choosing? Shouting Dio's name like he's having a tantrum which Dio dubs as "Dio-Telling". And the subjects he chose are Bruford and Tarkus, which he excitedly narrates to Dio while the latter just wants to go home.
    • Dio has to use a parasol whenever he walks out in the daylight.
  • Chapter 7 reveals that Jonathan developed an Irrational Hatred towards his father for wearing his pocketwatch. Canon!Dio would be so proud of Jonathan.
  • Jonathan and Dio takes a shortcut to the Wind Knight's lot, which is a tall cliff. Dio's understandably hesitant even with his vampire powers. Dio reaches the top by walking up the cliff. Jonathan falls and pretty much reenacts the scene where he's falling in the manga, complete with iron spear, only for the part of the cliff he's holding fall off anyway.
    Jonathan: "Goodbye Diooooooo!"
    Dio: "What... Really..."
    • How does he save himself? He whips out his belt and uses it to catch Dio's foot who's barely clinging on the top of the cliff. Poor Dio has to drag both of them out and is a mess after everything.
  • Dio can't contain his curiosity and keeps dragging himself into trouble, like being caught in the trap that pulls them to the room of dragon decapitation. Jonathan can free himself and poor Dio has to beg just to be let go. Not learning his lesson, he makes that mistake again when he accidentally revived Tarkus and Bruford.
  • Thunder Cross Split attack has no weakness! except when the user can't do it.
    Jonathan: "Flawless in offense and defence! No one has ever defeated this incredible killing technique..."
    *Cut to Dire splitting in midair*
    Jonathan:I really can't do it. That technique... All it has is a cool name"
  • A bit of Black Comedy here, but Jonathan being overdramatic after Bruford beheaded him.
    Jonathan: "Ahh, I'm in such a sad state. I'll die drenched in tears... But anyone who saw my corpse wouldn't cry. At most they'd sigh, huh"
  • Bruford's honorable death was Played for Laughs here. He reenacts his death scene alone with after seeing Jonathan's head, even with the flowers. Speedwagon thinks he's gross.
  • Chapter 12 skips what happened in chapter 11 and heads straight to Jonathan and Dio rushing the latter's thesis. It's revealed that Jonathan dilly-dallied on his thesis after their battle and the end result is them rushing it one day before the deadline. Jonathan keeps making mistakes like writing Bruford's sword name as Pluck and gets so stressed that he mishears Dio's question
    Dio: "What's the minimum number of pages your department requires you to write?"
    Jonathan: "What was that? How many breads have you eaten in your life?".
    • Then he has to run all the way even if there are only 15 minutes left before deadline.
      Speedwagon: "Will he make it?"
      Dio: ... And Jojo can run 100km/h when he's at his best so it's fine. He has plenty of time"
  • After Jonathan comes back in that mansion in chapter 13, Dio is very hesitant in telling him what really happened after Tarkus' fight. After Jonathan 'persuades' him to cut the crap, it's revealed that Dio actually has Jonathan's body. When the implications dawned to him, Jonathan didn't take it well (For those who don't know, Dio gave Jonathan George's body).
    Jonathan: "Dio... I just had the most terrifying thought..."
    Dio: "It's okay Jojo! That body is 195 cm tall and 105 kg! Nothing has changed! You're just like you were before!"
  • His actual freak out is not shown but it's implied that he's so crazed that everyone have to be evacuated around the mansion. He even says that he's never gonna forgive Dio for that, even injuring himself just to keep from killing him even though Dio has nothing to do with it.
  • Dio's graduation speech: "Jojo's heart may be small, but I want to become a man with big aspirations."
  • Jonathan and Dio fight like children on Jonathan's wedding party in the boat. Both do petty tricks that irritate the other until they just snap and have a fist fight. Both wrecks the whole place only to run back and abandon ship when Wang Chan sets the ship to explode.
  • It take Dire 4 chapters to execute his Thunder Cross Split attack.
  • Why is there a coffin in the boat? Jonathan plans to prank Dio with this. It comes in handy in saving their lives.

  • So Jotaro and Dio finally meet, with Dio on top of the stairs. Jotaro excitedly runs up only to trip and roll back downstairs. Kakyoin asks what happened since he just came back and Polnareff replies with this gem:
    Polnareff: "I'll tell you exactly how it went down. I thought Jotaro was climbing up the stairs, but he went down instead!"
  • Before entering the mansion, Dio warns Joseph not to crossdress and shows what happens to those who break the rules. After that Telence greets the group by sliding on the floor. Meanwhile Jotaro falls down on a hole made by Vanilla Ice.

  • Daniel D'arby accompanies Joseph to the cafe since Avdol is very near his Rage Breaking Point.
    Avdol: "D'arby, you are a cool-headed person. You use calculated action instead of relying on brute force. You truly are a strong person. As for me, I can't remain calm and get easily fired up. So the next time Mr. Joestar strips naked, I'll probably burn him to death."
  • Joseph, whose hobby is crossdressing and who walked around naked in daylight, calls Straizo a filthy old geezer for shutting up a woman who wont stop screaming.
    Joseph: "Bastard! I bey your next line will be "If you don't Ill kiss you with my tongue!" right!?"
    Narrator: "Unjust suspicion"

    *shows him wearing a scrunchie*
    Narrator: "Look who's talking."

  • Everyone is split up by Straizo's underlings and has to fight for their lives. Amusingly, Dio has to deal with The Sun, which is his biggest weakness.

Meanwhile Polnareff just finished doing his business in the bathroom and was surprised at the turn of events.
  • Avdol finally reaches his Rage Breaking Point thanks to Kenny G.
    *text on the wall*: When you see these scribbles, turn back and you are-"

    *text on the wall*: an idiot (lol).
    Avdol: "How Annoying!"
    • Amusingly, Vanilla Ice had the same reaction a few chapters later after Kenny G appeared to escape.
    Vanilla Ice: "How Annoying!"
    • In order to get back at him. Avdol remarks that Kenny G looks might be an alien that's why he had a hard time locating him. But it's only a ruse to let Vanilla Ice sneak up on him.
  • Jotaro basically hijacks Senator Phillips' car in order to make it back to the Joestar Mansion. The two then have a Ham-to-Ham Combat wherein they pretty much screams the Navy Seal Copypasta to each other. Jotaro drives like a maniac so much that when he crashed the car he unknowingly activated the Joestar curse, which is all automobile cars that he is on will crash for no reason.
    • Later, he proceeds to throw the senator's body to Arabia Fats in order to knock him out. He then drenches Dio in gasoline in trying to cool him.
  • Dio is pretty much useless in his fight with The Sun, especially since he can't do anything on it. He even thinks of the same choices as Polnareff in the manga and goes to a Corner of Woe when he thinks that it's futile.
  • Kakyoin accidentally encounters Straizo who figures out that he's a part of the group thanks to Joseph's scent rubbing off him. Kakyoin proceeds to feign ignorance and act like a coward, even screaming that he's dragged there against his will.
    Kakyoin "So you really are Straizo... when will you fight me? I hereby surrender myself."
    *Narration Box* "Kak-you ain't getting me into this mess-in"
  • Chapter 89 shows how Kakyoin and Jotaro became friends, where he first sees Jotaro acting like a child and trip himself over the stairs.
  • Kakyoin can be very brutal in snarking his dearest friend Jotaro in his flashback:
    Kakyoin:"I drew some shit as well"
    *Shows his drawing of Jotaro*
    Jotaro: "...Hey you. Isn't that me?"
    Kakyoin: "No, it's a shit"
    Jotaro: "You're saying that I'm a shit to you?"
  • After their fight and him giving a last ditch effort to stop him, Kakyoin turns his dying message from the manga into a petty grudge against Joseph.
    Kakyoin: "Before I lose consciousness, I shall leave a message to Mr. Joestar just in case. Because of your smell getting to me, Straizo got me done for. This message... Mr. Joestar... Please notice it... Please let it be known... my Grudge to you...
  • Joseph is revived thanks to Ceasar's help and proceeds to prank him by pretending to be taken over by Straizo. He answers all the questions correctly, but Caesar punches him in the face anyway and accidentally knocks him out making him miss all the action.
  • Dio just cant help his curiosity and finds Straizo as a result. Straizo tries to hit him with a flesh bud but Dio skillfully dodges only to reveal Jotaro following him from behind. It hit's Jotaro's head, but bounces back to the back of Dio's head, turning him into a rampaging psychopathic maniac. Or in other words, just Canon!Dio
    Dio: "Wryyyyy! I bloody hate dogs!"

Gio Gio's Bizarre Treasure Hunt

  • Once again, Abbachio tries to trick Giorno into drinking his urine. It bites him in the ass, though, when Giorno tells Bucciarati that Abbachio pissed himself.
  • The Running Gag of Giorno's creatures being comically oversized. It's even how he got hired!
  • Narancia getting blown away by a gust of wind after getting shrunk. Especially because it's clear Formaggio didn't think that that would happen.

How well does it match the trope?
