     Jolyne not recognizing Jotaro 
  • When Jotaro and Jolyne meet, Jolyne acts like she doesn't recognize him, but later claims they met last a few years ago. Surely Jolyne would recognize her own father in that timespan?
    • She could've just been being cold. She hates Jotaro.

     Why was Thunder Mc Queen arrested? 
  • In the Hermes Costello arc when Thunder Mc Queen's backstory was done why was he arrested? It is nearly impossible for a gun to simply go off while it is being cleaned due to the force needed to pull the trigger. Why didn't anybody question the angle at which the woman was shot at if she was already falling? Why was it not questioned that the woman was already falling? And why did Thunder not know the gun was loaded? Was that gun even Thunder's to begin with he didn't know before cleaning it that it was loaded?
    • Guns have gone off in real life while their owners were cleaning them, including at least one case where someone shot himself in the foot. It generally happens when the person cleaning it is being careless. The woman looked like she was mostly vertical while falling, meaning it would be easy to assume that she was shot while standing up and not falling to her death anyway. It's also possible that any witnesses didn't actually see her jump. They may have only seen her mid-fall with blood coming out, or they just found her body after the fact. In that case, there's no one that can back Thunder's claim that she was already falling.
     Where did FF get the sixth body to disguise itself? 
  • Where did FF get the sixth body to disguise itself? Did it just create a fake, or something? It seemed to be shedding out of SOMETHING physical. Also, does it still have someone else's Stand Disc inside it, or did it awaken its own Stand when the Disc fell into it? After all, foreign discs can be knocked out, since they don't actually belong to the users, as shown with Mc Queen, but nothing like that ever happened to FF.
    • It's stated that she created it from the two male inmates she killed previously. Her Stand Disc is from someone else like every one of Pucci's henchmen. Foreign discs can be knocked out from severe blow to the head or incompatibility like Jotaro's Stand Disc.
     Why was Emporio spared the big reset of the universe? 
  • Why was Emporio spared the big reset of the universe? I'm talking about the first one when he was on the dolphin. As far as I recall, there's no explanation as to why he alone was spared the reset aside from Pucci (spared for obvious reasons), so what's the deal?
    • His stand, Burning Down the House, acts as a hide-away. It's a memory of a room rather than a real room (i.e. a physical room in our universe.) Since it's not real, Made In Heaven can't affect it.
    • Emporio wasn't "spared the big reset". He survived it. Those who didn't survive were replaced by vaguely similar substitutes, but everyone who survived the process went right back to their original life... but having experienced it all before, they were aware of their future in advance and their actions were locked to their fate. This was the whole point of Pucci's actions throughout Part 6. Emporio at least knew why all this was happening, whereas to anyone else it would be like a strange sense of precognition.
     What did Jolyne do with the busted tire? 
  • In "Heavy Weather, Part 13", what was Jolyne doing with that busted tire that let her fling herself towards Pucci?
    • It's shown that she wrapped her string around the tire, put her hand on the gas pedal to have the tire spin forward such that it flings her forward towards Pucci.
     How do Whitesnake and Stand/Memory discs work? 
  • How do Whitesnake and Stand/Memory discs work? At first, Pucci's Stand is shown to have the power to remove people's Stands and memories, storing them on separate discs. Fine. But the heroes often manage to retrieve Stands and memories themselves by simply beating the shit out of people and taking the discs! This could potentially make sense with the Stands that initially belonged to other people and were taken by Whitesnake and given to the user that the heroes fight. Since it's not really their Stand, maybe it ejects after their defeat. But how can the heroes access the genuine memories of defeated enemies? At no other point in the series did anyone's memories just conveniently pop out of their head on a disc! Only Whitesnake should be able to cause that.
    • Also, during the Green Baby arc Pucci inserts a NORMAL COMPACT DISC with a recording of Handel's "Messiah" on it into Guccio's head, and Guccio starts playing the music! How is that possible? Does Whitesnake just have the ability to make compact discs work in a human in all the ways they should work in a computer?
      • They don't insert it in all the way and yes, that is also how Whitesnake's ability also works.

     The snail-eating bugs not turning into snails 
  • In Stone Ocean, when people and animals turned into snails (thanks to Heavy Weather bullshit power), a new threat appeared in the form of snail-eating bugs. Except if these bugs tried to eat people turned into snails, themselves would change into snails, no?
    • Those bugs had been shown having eaten snails inside the stolen car without changing so, like the snails, they're also part of the hallucination.
     Mc Queen's stand name 
  • Considering the prison setting, wouldn't Institutionalized be a better name for Thunder Mc Queen's stand? I mean, the song was performed by Suicidal Tendencies, and if you were to describe Highway to Hell in just two words, Suicidal Tendencies would be a perfect description.
