Hate Sink / JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

Go To

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has a huge cast throughout the course of its run. There are some characters that are beloved, and there are some who are just meant to be loathed by everyone.

  • Phantom Blood: Dio's abusive drunkard of a father, Dario Brando, is no slouch in this department. He constantly abused his wife (to whom he had no compassion for at all) during their marriage until she died from exhaustion (even wanting to sell her dress after she died to get money), mistreated Dio throughout his entire youth, and overall, showcased smug, toxic, and dominating behavior over his entire family. He then proceeds to milk George Joestar's kindness by forcing Dio to become his foster son in the hopes of retaining their family fortune. It's arguable whether or not Dio would have become the sadistic megalomaniac he is now if it weren't for his horrible father's upbringing (hinting that Dio may have inherited that from him anyway), but it's all thanks to Dario that Dio and Jonathan even met each other in the first place. He is easily one of the most loathsome and unlikable characters in the series which makes his fatal poisoning at the hands of his own son one of the few murders committed by Dio that can actually be considered justifiable.

  • Battle Tendency:
    • The racist Dirty Cops bullying Smokey Brown. Despite their brief appearance, they easily come off as loathsome pieces of shit. They not only physically throttle Smokey for stealing Joseph's wallet, but they also try and extort money from him through the wallet he took. When Joseph shows up to defend Smokey and try to peacefully resolve the situation by saying that the wallet was a gift, one of them smugly walks up to him to wipe a booger on Joseph's face. Happily, they both proceed to get an extremely well-deserved ass-kicking from Joseph.
    • The unnamed gangster with brass knuckles, an early antagonist, that Joseph and his family come across in a fancy restaurant. He is vulgar, sloppy and throws racial slurs at Smokey and mocks the restaurant for allowing African-American customers. His terrible behavior eventually comes to bite him in the ass when Erina of all people allows Joseph to fight him. When he's defeated, the other restaurant patrons applaud Joseph for putting the bastard in his place.

  • Stardust Crusaders:

  • Diamond is Unbreakable:
    • Anjuro "Angelo" Katagiri, despite being a Starter Villain, quickly establishes himself as one of the darkest and most repulsive villains in the franchise so far. He's a murderer and a Serial Rapist, but actually could be even worse as we get to see just how brutal he can get when he graphically murders a dog (and later, its owner) by biting the dog's face off. So much so that even Jotaro is unnerved by his wanton cruelty, which included raping and murdering three teenage boys. His ultimate punishment at the hands of Josuke was well-deserved.
    • Toshikazu Hazamada, one of the minor villains, is a perverted and creepy loner who fantasizes about killing and raping his classmates. He even used his Stand to gouge his friend's eye out simply over a disagreement over a manga. Even the eccentric Rohan has nothing but contempt for him, finding him poor writing material that no one would care for.

  • Golden Wind:
    • Giorno's mother is a piece of work. She was noticeably distant and neglectful towards her son, leaving him alone in her apartment so that she could party. When asked about leaving Giorno, still a little child in his crib alone in her apartment, she replies that she's not going to waste away her youth raising him. On top of that, while her husband and her son's bullies were intimidated by the unnamed gangster into treating Giorno decently, she seems to have completely gotten away with neglecting her son.
    • Giorno's stepfather is arguably even worse than his mother, since he was actively physically abusive to Giorno when his wife wasn't watching, implying that she wouldn't have stood for that sort of treatment. His behavior also results in Giorno having trust issues and constantly scrutinizing others' expressions, due to how two-faced his stepfather was.
    • Even in a cast full of ruthless murderers and gangsters, Cioccolata could very well be the vilest and most depraved of the lot. He's a Mad Doctor who gets kicks from torturing his patients in gratuitous fashion and even gaslights elderly patients to make them commit suicide out of despair. And on top of it, he's an egotistical and narcissistic asshole who thinks he's above everyone else and only cares about his own morbid view of life. His soul is so evil and sadistic that his Stand, Green Day, has the power to create a mold that makes people rot to death. Everyone in-universe, even Diavolo, except his assistant Secco, are absolutely disgusted by him and consider him the lowest of the low. He then goes on a cataclysmic killing spree while bragging how watching death and suffering of others is the true source of happiness in life. It's only fitting that he's subjected to one of the most violent and drawn-out (and definitely deserving) punishments in the series by far; a seven page/40 second No-Holds-Barred Beatdown at the hands of Giorno, who finishes said beating by punching him into the back of a garbage truck that crushes him inside, then takes the resulting bloody mess away to be incinerated.
    • Cioccolata's assistant, Secco, isn't much better than he is. While Secco has less direct involvement in much of the carnage the two cause, he takes an equal amount of perverse pleasure in killing and filming the deaths of others. He is the only one to approve of the mad doctor's torture of others, only beginning to act on his own after Cioccolatta is killed by Giorno (and this clearly is not out of fear of Cioccolata, as Secco's Stand makes him immune to Cioccolata's attacks.) After that, Secco admits he never really cared about Cioccolata, only sticking around to take advantage of his strengths and get fed treats. In addition, he's an unpleasantly narcissistic Smug Snake, and his painful death by bleeding out from having his throat sliced open by Bucciarati is well-deserved.
    • Despite being only a character in a flashback, Narancia's "friend" is one. He framed Narancia for assaulting an old lady, which was already bad enough. But he goes even further by spreading rumors that Narancia's eye infection in prison was inherited from his mother, which causes everyone to avoid him, for no reason other than he could. But the worst part of it all? He gets no onscreen comeuppance for all the crap he put Narancia through.
    • Also a flashback only character, in both the anime and Purple Haze Feedback, is Fugo's university professor. Depending on which version of Fugo's backstory, he either mocked Fugo and berated him for letting his grandmother's death affect his grades (Feedback), or he was repeatedly harassing or even molesting Fugo, who was only thirteen at the time, even trying to pressure him into giving him sexual favors in exchange for telling him what's in the next exam (anime). Both ways end with Fugo triggered into beating him senseless with an encyclopedia. Worse yet, much like Narancia's "friend", the professor gets no seen comeuppance for his actions (aside from Fugo's beatdown) and Fugo is arrested and disowned by his parents as a result.

  • Stone Ocean:
    • Despite only being in the story briefly, Jolyne's corrupt lawyer and the judge who sentences her qualify. After Jolyne is arrested, Johngalli A. bribes her lawyer and the judge, so her lawyer convinces her to plead guilty in order to get a reduced sentence, and the judge sentences her to fifteen years in prison anyway. It's little wonder that one of the first things that Jolyne does with her stand is strangle the lawyer. Unfortunately, the judge never receives comeuppance onscreen.
      • Jolyne's boyfriend Romeo is a subversion. Initially, after hitting a man with his car (which Johngalli A. set up), Romeo pins the blame for the hit-and-run on her. However, when she sees him again, he feels incredible guilty, and lies to the police to lead them away from Jolyne. Jolyne and Ermes use Kiss to damage his tongue anyway.
    • Sports Maxx quite effectively ruined Ermes' life for good by murdering her sister Gloria, the only one who came closest to being her actual mother, and driving their father morbidly ill in the process. He has no remorse either; blaming Gloria for her own death and smugly rubbing it in Ermes' face before attempting to devour her alive. Maxx is so despicable he gets killed by Ermes - twice, in fact. Worse yet, his other actions indirectly cause the end of the first continuity of the series, enabling Pucci to enact his master plan of resetting the universe and slaughter the majority of the main cast, Ermes included, effectively screwing the poor woman over even in death.
    • Even among the brutal, assholish prison guards in Green Dolphin Street Prison, Viviano Westwood and Sonny Likir are easily among the worst of them. They're both brass, rude and sadistic men who antagonize and brutalize the inmates and frequently make bets with each other on which of the inmates reaches their breaking point next. Fittingly, they're stationed in solitary confinement. However, they end up getting theirs not long after Jolyne is sent to solitary - Survivor causes Westwood to beat Sonny within an inch of his life and gruesomely twist his leg inwards, and Jolyne beats down Westwood himself, sending him careening down several flights of stairs in their bout.
    • Kenzō stands out as particularly repulsive even in a prison setting full of rapists, murderers and lowlifes. He's the former guru of a religious sect who manipulated his followers into committing mass suicide For the Evulz. On top of it all, Kenzō is an egomaniac with a god complex who wants to be worshipped by everyone and sadistically tortures F.F while laughing at their pain. According to him, even child molesters can't stand him.
    • The "private detective" hired by Pucci in order to force Pucci's sister Perla and Weather Report, who is actually their brother, to break up. However, it turns out that the "detective" was part of the KKK, and he and his cronies proceed to attack the couple and lynch Weather due to him being of African heritage. Not only that, they also killed Weather's mother and burned down Weather's home. This led to Perla committing suicide out of grief thinking Weather was dead, and in turn Pucci and Weather's Start of Darkness. It was extremely satisfying to see Weather get his revenge on the racist detective in the most gruesome and painful way possible.

  • Steel Ball Run:
    • Benjamin Boom-Boom is lacking in any redeeming qualities. The man can barely speak a sentence without insulting his sons, even when one of said sons, Andre, suffers an extremely painful injury, he simply calls Andre a crybaby and asks him to move so he can shoot the heroes through the hole in Andre's stomach.
    • Much like his main universe counterpart, Diego's father Dario is a real nasty piece of work. He takes the main Dario's Jerkassery up to eleven, lacking even the original Dario's one Pet the Dog moment, when he outright tries to drown Diego when he was a baby simply to avoid having another mouth to feed and then abandons his lover when she changes her mind and tries to rescue Diego. And unlike the original Dario who gets his just desserts, this one gets off scot-free as Diego never got the chance to get back at his father.
    • Diego and his mother's savior shows his nastier side later on. When Diego's mother rejects his advances — not to mention that he felt entitled to her because he saved her and her son —, he responds by putting holes in the cups they used to get food, leaving them unable to eat and forcing Diego's mother to put the hot food in her hands in order to make sure Diego would be fed. This led in the long run to her death. While Diego swears revenge on both him and the others who let this tragedy happen, he never gets the chance.
    • The unnamed soldier from Ringo Roadagain's past attacks the then ill 10-year old Ringo's house, slaughters Ringo's mother and two younger sisters and attempts to rape him. When Ringo rejects his advances, he threatens to force him to watch as he dismembers his family and feeds their corpses to pigs. Described as a "vapid cow" and depicted as nothing short of loathsome and disgusting, his death at Ringo's hands when the latter fatally shoots him is nothing short of well-deserved.
    • While he only appears in one flashback, the husband of Wekapipo's sister stands out as being particularly awful. He beats his wife black and blue For the Evulz, causing her to go blind in one eye, and then refuses to divorce her when Wekapipo begs him to. And then he challenges him to a duel for "shaming" him. Even after Wekapipo wins the duel and kills him, he still manages to ruin Wekapipo's life, as his father pulls several strings to get Wekapipo banished from Naples. Wekapipo never ends up seeing his sister again after that.
    • Despite only appearing as the Final Boss of the part, Alternate!Diego Brando is one as well. He lacks the redeeming and sympathetic qualities of his main counterpart, instead being more in line with Dio's cruel and vindictive personality while also lacking his charisma and badassery. In his battle with Johnny he uses his own fangirls as Human Shields, and having the audacity to blame Johnny when one of them gets killed in the process. And like Dio did with Erina in Part 1, he tries to force himself on a Pendleton, namely Lucy. But he goes farther than Dio's "Take That!" Kiss to Erina, attempting to rape Lucy (who's 14). Only this time, Lucy is the one who gets the honor of finishing Alternate Diego off.

  • JoJolion: The unnamed bully who kept viciously tormenting Jobin when he was a child, frequently beating him and mocking him because of his memory loss issues. He is sexually depraved and abhorrent in every way a minor can be, lusting after Jobin's mom Kaato and forcing Jobin to take pictures of her while in shower. When a pair of panties stolen by the boy scout are eventually discovered, he covers Jobin in gasoline and threatens to burn him if he doesn't burn the house of the one who ratted on him. He even goes as far as to threaten Kaato with rape and murder which eventually trigger Jobin's stand ability, rendering the bastard unconscious. Worse yet, Kaato takes the blame and murders the boy scout which sends her to prison for 15 years.

  • The JoJoLands:
    • The two unnamed Dirty Cops who pulled over Jodio and Dragona in the first chapter qualify. They are both depicted as corrupt cops who like to molest teens of either gender as one of the cops sexually harassed and tried to rape Dragona while the other not only approved of it but tried to prevent Jodio from intervening to stop it. What is even more depraved is that these cops went as far as to put their hands in Dragona’s crotch during their harassment. They get their comeuppance when Jodio introduces his stand, November Rain to pummel then to a pulp with its specialized raindrops before beating them up with his fists.
    • The unnamed bully who kept terrorizing Dragona when they were a child also qualifies. Initially appearing to be a Nice Girl, she quickly reveals her vicious personality when she violently smacks Dragona in the face for accidentally hitting her with a volleyball, giving them a nosebleed. Later in a school bus, she and her cronies gang up on Dragona, making derogatory comments about their body and threatening to sexually assault them, using an eyelash curler to clamp on one of their nipples to "draw a bra". Even when Jodio comes to intervene, the girl mocks him and calls him a creepy child. She eventually gets retribution when Jodio uses November Rain to pierce one of her eyelids, and the reader likely won't feel much sympathy for her when, the next day, Jodio sets the bus on fire with her and her friends trapped inside it, having her end up hospitalized with major degree burns.
