One, two, Death XIII's coming for you...
"What in the blue hell?! That crazy blighter's inside a horse! Good God! This one's mad as a hatter! Dio's evil, yeah, but I ain't seen him jump out of any animal so far!"
Robert E. O. Speedwagon towards Jack the Ripper's emergence from a horse.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is known for its awesomeness in its epic moments, its tragic history and quirky events, as well as its few moments of genuine happiness.

However, it didn't start off as this; it initially focused on a man turned into a vampire and his Legions of Hell, and the Gorn could get extreme at times. It only gets worse with all the Body Horror of the Pillar Men and Stands in later parts.


  • In one of Rohan's spinoffs, he goes to a mountainous area that is said to be haunted. The story behind said haunting? A young woman accidentally killed her boyfriend, but his body bleeds copiously even after he's dead. She hides his corpse under her house, becomes obsessed with it, and somehow has a child with it. Then, while exploring the mountains, Rohan bumps into a girl who begins to bleed the same way. It turns out that the girl (and her father, the corpse) were possessed by some sort of yokai that reproduces by creating an intense obsession in the people who 'kill' its host; in other words, you're brainwashed into loving a supernatural parasite inside a dead body.

  • Another Rohan spinoff features him telling the reader the story of how his hand got broken. From his perspective, he got in some friendly competitions with another man in the gym only for the man to suddenly make it Serious Business where the loser would be jettisoned out a broken window by the treadmill. Rohan uses Heaven's Door to find out what his problem is, only to learn the man murdered several people- including his own girlfriend- for infractions as minor as ringing his doorbell at 7 pm. After Rohan wins the rematch, he refuses to look out the window just in case the guy is still out there.
