"Reading Jojo is kind of like those pretend fights you had when you were younger. You know the ones where you said something like "I shot you! You're dead!" But then your friend said "Nuh-uh, I have a diamond bullet proof vest!" To which you retort, "Well I shot you with a diamond bullet-proof vest piercing bullet!" and you just went back and forth like that until you just couldn't top the other kid."
An Anonymous 4chan user describing the series.

Jonathan Joestar

"Leave me alone! Go away! I didn't attack them for your sake! I want to be a true gentleman! You were a Damsel in Distress, a true gentleman needs to be brave enough to go into a fight he know he'll lose. But one day... I'll be strong enough to win..."
—His reasoning to save Erina Pendleton, his future wife, in their first meeting.

"NANI WO SURUNDA!? YURUSAN!" (In English "What are you doing!? Unforgivable!"/In the dub "What was that for!? How dare you!")

—Jonathan while beating the shit out of Dio

"(Even Speedwagon is afraid!!)"
—Jonathan's line of thought when looking at a terrified Speedwagon on Dio's first vampirism (Manga only)

— Jonathan to Dio

"Farewell... to you... my beloved..."
Jonathan's dying words

Dio Brando

(Devil that you were, you drove mother to an early grave. I'm glad you're dead; may you burn for your sins. The riches that eluded your grasp — I will claim them in excess. You lacked the cunning to take what you wanted, but I'll prevail!) "Now burn!" *spits on his father's grave
—His thoughts about his father and his early Establishing Character Moment.

"Know this. I may be your guest in your home but I'm not one to be trifled with. In all things, I am number one! Look down upon me and you will regret it! (....) And another thing, I despise all mongrels. They don't scare me, I just can't stand them fawning over the unworthy. So keep your mangy mutt away from me, Joestar!"
—Making it clear that he plans to ruin Jonathan's life, and why he kicked the dog before.

"Tell me, Have you and JoJo kissed yet? I'll take that as a "no"... You thought your first kiss would be JoJo, but it was I, Dio!"
—Dio after stealing Erina's Sacred First Kiss

—To Jonathan while leaving him to fall in fire

—Anytime someone proving too weak attacks him, before brutalizing them

"I don't know; how many loaves of bread have you eaten in your lifetime?"
—His response to being asked what his kill count is

"Your hamon training avails you nothing. MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA—!! (Dub: IT'S USELESS USELESS USELESS USELESS USELESS USELESSSS—!!) A mere monkey can never defeat a lion. In comparison to my power, you are but a mere monkey, JoJo!!"
— The very first utterance of repeated "MUDA!" (Also the English translation of one of his quirky phrases "MONKEY NAN DA YO")

"JoJo! Let me go! Release me! Think of what we can achieve! You'd like a taste of eternity, would you not?! I can heal your wounds! You and Erina can live together, forever! JOJO!, it's too late...he's dead..."
—Dio's last dialogue in Phantom Blood

Robert E.O. Speedwagon

"Is he a victim of circumstance, you're wondering? Not on your life!! He's been evil since he drew his first breath!"
—To Dio

"You're wrong! All that was good in that man, he passed it along to Jonathan, every bit of it! You can be sure JoJo's gonna live an upright life, using what his father gave him. Rich folks are rubbish. Watching 'em flounce around, I wanna throw the whole lot of them into the Thames! But not the Joestars. They're heroic and merciful and, just... the whole damn lot of them are giants among men!"
—On the death of George Joestar and someone saying that the kindness of George ended that day.

"I wasn't cut for that job anyway. I'll come back later. Speedwagon withdraws coolly."
—On seeing Jonathan already being tended by Erina


Dio: JoJo, it was hubris that led me to this ignominious end. This fall from grace has taught me well. However one may scheme or assemble, my downfall tonight is part of the human condition... A condition I now forsake.
Jonathan: Wait, forsake? What do you mean?
—Dio becomes a Vampire

    Battle Tendency 

Joseph Joestar

"You made the wrong move, you stupid pig!"
—After punching said cop in the face while he was giving his answer

"Your next line is X/Next you'll say X/I know just what your next line is: X!/Here's a glimpse of what you're about to say next: X"
—Joseph's Catchphrase. X being whatever his opponents are going to say next.

"What did you say? Depending on your answer, I may have to kick your ass!"
—Joseph to a mobster

"I brought tequila with me. Is it OK if I pass here? Hmmhmm? (....) Damn it, my self-esteem took a blow... At least this uniform is less suspicious."
—Joseph, crossdressing, towards German soldiers. And once he's off the guise.

"Happy! Joy! Nice to meetcha!"
—Joseph in his attempts to talk to Santana

"Run as fast as I can! Make way!"
—Joseph runs after dealing with a nearly-obliterated Hamon user

"If I was told to wait, then waiting is what I'll do. Now where to spend half an hour? I think the best place is here by Lisa Lisa's door! Would it really be all that wrong if I took a peek through the keyhole to check things oooooooout!? (peeks at naked Lisa Lisa) Ooh ooh, oohohohohohoo!! NIIIIIIICE!"
—Joseph peeking at Lisa Lisa, his mom

"OH NO!"
— Another Catchphrase

After finding out where Caesar's body was.

One last all-or-nothing gambit! (...) Yeah! It's my final move! (...) Listen up! This is something you're going to have to do for yourself! (...) Hmmmmhmmmmhmmmhmmm.... RUN FOR YOUR LIIIIIIIVES!
— To Smokey, Speedwagon, and Stroheim on his plan to deal with the newly empowered Kars.

Rudol von Stroheim

—To Speedwagon

I'm a proud servant of the German Army! I am prepared to do my duty! I would proudly give a few legs for the sake of the Fatherland! Do it now, Joestar!
—To Joseph, showcasing a positive Patriotic Fervor to get his leg cut off and defeat Santana.

—To Kars before firing his eye laser at him (Translated in English as FOOOOOOOL! GERMAN SCIENCE IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD!!/dubbed as "YOU UTTER FOOOOOOOL! GERMAN SCIENCE IS THE FINEST IN THE WORLD!").


"Awaken, my masters!"
—Wamuu freeing Kars and Esidsi

    Stardust Crusaders 
Jotaro: "Shut up! Get outta my face, you bitch!"
Holly Kujo: "Okay!~"
— Jotaro's Establishing Character Moment with his mother

DIO: "Oh? So you still want to fight? It would appear pigheadedness runs in the family. How ungrateful can you be? You're blatantly ignoring your grandfather's wishes, even after he gave his life to tell you about the power of The World. Surely his pathetic pleas warranted a bit of consideration."
Jotaro: "I have to move closer if I want to beat your sorry ass to a pulp."

Jotaro Kujo

"Good grief."/"Yare Yare Daze"
—Jotaro's Catchphrase.

"Look, no one ever said Jotaro Kujo was a nice guy. I beat the crap out of people, more than I have to. Some are even still in the hospital. I've had idiot teachers who like to talk big, so I taught them a lesson, and they never came back to class. If I go to a restaurant and the food's bad, I make it a policy to stiff 'em with the bill. But, even a bastard like me... can spot true evil when he sees it! True evil are those who use the weak for their own gain, and crush them underfoot when they're through! Especially an innocent woman! And that is exactly what you've done, isn't it!? And your Stand gets to hide from the victim, the law, and the consequences! That's why... I will judge you myself!"
—To Kakyoin, "Who Will Be the Judge!?"

Jotaro: Oh, good grief.
Rubber Soul: Eh?
Jotaro: You're right. You really don't have any weaknesses. Maybe you are the world's strongest. And that's terrifying. But I'll tell you, we Kujos—No, wait—I mean Joestars, we use strategy to fight our way past any obstacle. You haven't won yet, and I still have one strategy left.
Rubber Soul: Really?
Jotaro: And that's to...
Joseph: And that's to...
(Star Platinum punches the cable car's floor)
Jotaro: away.
— Jotaro uses the Joestars' "secret technique" in an attempt to escape from Yellow Temperance

Rubber Soul: What the hell? You're in the middle of being alive, you dumbass! My Stand's got a hold that you can't escape and you say you run away? Don't make me laugh!
Jotaro: When I said "run away"...
(Jotaro and Rubber Soul land inside the river water)
Jotaro: I meant into the water!
Rubber Soul: Dammit! I-I can't breathe!
— Jotaro reveals that he was "running away" into the river water to immobilize Rubber Soul.

"Your Stand may be invincible, but you sure as hell aren't! If I destroy you, then your Stand dies too. Do you understand? Listen, I've had it up to here with that cocky-ass mouth of yours, alright? I just happen to be the type of guy who takes these things to heart!"
— To Rubber Soul, followed with a punch in the face.

"Just shut up already. I have nothing more to say to you. You're way too pathetic... I'm done wasting my breath."
— Final words to Rubber Soul before complete, final beatdown.

"Good grief. I know this is obvious, but you really are a piece of work. What you owe me... can never be paid back with money!!"
— To Steely Dan when he tries to bribe him to not beat him up, with a very long beat down.

"Good grief. Don't underestimate me because I'm a kid."
—To Alessi after he turned Jotaro into a kid and got punched in the face by him.

"Wait, I still have my rights to raise." (...) "I raise you my mother's soul!" (...) "I came to Egypt to save my mother, so if I wager her soul, she won't mind. But, D'Arby, you'll have to match my mother's soul. For that... I'll have you tell me the secret of Dio's Stand!" (...) "So, do you call or fold!? Let's hear you say it out loud, D'Arby!!"
—Extreme bluffing against Daniel J. D'Arby to the point the latter shut down without any beating.

"You want to know whether I'll forgive you, why don't you just do what you do best and read my mind?" (NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!) "Answer this. Will I hit you with my right fist, or decide to deck you with my left? I'd love to know." (Well, since you're asking, you'll use... your right one? ) (NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!) (Then... your left?) (NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!) (You're... not going to use both, are you!?'') (YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!!)
—The final conversation against Terrence T. D'Arby (continued in Joseph's section)

"If this were the Wild West, the hero would say "It's High Noon." Now get off the ground and draw your piece, DIO. You're getting one shot."

"You only made one mistake, one that got you killed. DIO, this whole thing might have ended differently, but... You went and pissed me off. Was it worth it?"
—After finally defeating DIO for good.

Joseph Joestar

—Joseph's Catchphrase

—Joseph's other Catchphrase

—Joseph's other, other Catchphrase

"Jotaro! How dare you talk to your mother that way! And Holly, stop smiling at him, you'll only encourage it!"
—Joseph trying to stabilize his daughter and grandson's relationship

"Now I think even a glorified pimple like you should the difference in our fighting experience. When your opponent starts boasting, he's already lost! That, shrew, is a line from my wilder days! Like a fine wine, I guess I just get better with age. And now! A Stand will defeat another Stand! Next you'll say, 'Please stop it, I beg you!'"
—Joseph after completely outsmarting The Empress and giving a Call-Back to his younger self's habit.

Joseph: "Yes, yes, yes, oh my god!"
—The final conversation with Terrence

Joseph: "My name is Joseph Joestar! I was born in September 27, 1920. My wife's name is Suzi Q. I like to read comic books!"
Jotaro: "Who was the female lead in the 1981 film Tarzan the Ape Man?"
Joseph: "Bo Derek!"
Jotaro: "Who sang Eat It, the parody of Beat It?"
Joseph: "Al Yankovic!"
Jotaro: "Good grief... I guess only you would know useless things like that..."
— After being revived and showing off his trivial knowledge

Muhammad Avdol

—To Polnareff, original Japanese

"Yes! You had better believe I am!"
—To Polnareff, dubbed version

"Cameo of the judgement card, was it? I’ll give you hell. HELL 2 U!"

"Mohammed Avdol is alive.” This is bad news. Shouldn’t you hurry and tell DIO and your other Stand user buddies about it?"
— To Cameo

"This isn't within my line of image! Disasters in the bathroom is Polnareff's thing!"
—While escaping women's bathroom for a sneaking mission gone wrong.

Avdol's last words

Noriaki Kakyoin

"JoJo's mother, Ms. Holly, is a woman capable of calming the hearts of others. People feel at ease around her. This may sound awkward... but if I were to fall in love, I'd like it to be with someone like her. I would give my all for her. And I would want to always see her warm, happy smile."
—His oath to save Holly, incidentally marking him as a MILF hunter amongst fans.

"I'm not sure myself of why I want to go... but you awakened me. That's all."
—To Jotaro, on why he'd join the group against DIO

—Kakyoin sucking on a cherry — both himself and Rubber Soul.

—Hierophant Green's signature move

"Now it's time for your punishment, baby."
—Kakyoin to Death 13

"Polnareff, that's not what you say here. When taking revenge, you shouldn't say, "Why, you..." You say this. My name is Noriaki Kakyoin. To avenge my friend, Avdol, and so that the soul of my friend Polnareff's sister may rest in peace, I will have you pay with your life."
—Kakyoin to J. Geil

"I always thought living in a big city would mean meeting a lot of people. But how many people meet others that they can truly understand, and who truly understand them? I probably won't ever find someone who sees me for who I am. Because I don't have a single friend that can see my Hierophant Green."

Jean Pierre Polnareff

"Guys like him get in the way, that’s why I said I’d do this myself! It really annoys me... having people up and die on me... it just annoys me so much!"
To Kakyoin about Avdol’s first death

"You're really good at crying, J. Geil. Well, you're about to fall down to Hell, sobbing the whole way down. But there's one thing I can't rely on the guardians of Hell to do for me. And that's... To turn you into a pincushion!"

"Aww, man. And I have one hand signal I'm ready to show..." (shows the hand signal) (Kakyoin: "Your panties are showing.") "YEAH!!"
—In a nearly sinking submarine, followed with a silly handshake.


"Good grief. I can't let a kid who likes dogs... get killed!"
—Iggy after saving a child from Pet Shop


—or in Japanese, "ZA WARUDO! TOKI YO TOMARE!"

"Polnareff, have you ever considered why humans wish to live? Humans live hoping to conquer their anxieties and fear, and attain peace of mind. Seeking fame, controlling others, and acquiring wealth are all done to achieve peace of mind. Marriage and friendship are also pursued as means of attaining peace of mind. When humans say they wish to help others, or that a thing is done for love or justice... it's all merely to give themselves peace of mind. To achieve peace of mind is the goal of all mankind. Now, given that, what anxiety could you possibly feel towards serving me? Any other peace of mind would come easily if you do. Doesn't challenging me, even knowing that it may spell your death, bring you anxiety? You are a very capable Stand user. It's a waste to kill you. Why not cut ties with Joestar and the others, and serve me for eternity? I can promise you peace of mind for eternity."
— DIO trying to bring Polnareff back to his side.

"This makes seven seconds! My power grows exponentially! I can stop time for even longer! But as for you, Jotaro, you wasted the opportunity you had to move. Gambling on getting me two seconds before time resumed was all for naught. What a miscalculation. Ufufu~! I feel so marvelous I could serenade the world! The moment I've dreamed of for so long is finally upon us! Eight seconds have passed! I've been an immortal being for an entire century. But never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined I'd feel something this exhilarating! Fufufufufufufufufu! The blood of the Joestars suits courses through my veins! THE BLOOD OF THE JOESTARS COURSES THROUGH MY VEINS!!"
— Or in the original Japanese, "The Joestar blood suits me very well! This is the greatest HIGH!!".

"Now to unleash all of my Stand's power! Jotaro, weren't you mumbling something about being angry? Is this all the power you possess? MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA MUDA—!!"
— DIO to Jotaro, before unleashing The World's "MUDA Kick" on him.

— The whole ROAD ROLLER scene, on DIO's POV.

"This insignificant whelp... How dare he mock me! Though I shouldn't be surprised. Of course he would use this opportunity to make such a human declaration. You think like a true mortal, cursed with a fleeting life destined for obscurity. "A bad taste in your mouth," you say? What? Are you afraid you'd regret killing me? That reasoning is as pathetic as your species, your foolish honor will be your demise! That is where you and I differ. My vision is clear and my mind is focused on a single goal: I want to dominate! Nothing more, nothing less. It's the only thing that will bring me fulfillment! But how I go about doing that... doesn't matter in the slightest!"
— DIO's last thoughts near the end of his fight with Jotaro.

— DIO's dying words. For good.

Senator Philips

"W-who the hell are you!? Do you think you're going to get away with this!? (to himself) No, of course he won't. No one could get away with doing this to me. I graduated high school and college at the top of my class! I was captain of my college wrestling team! Even after I graduated, I was respected and revered! That's how I became a politician! I have a villa on a thousand acres in Hawaii! I married a beautiful model who is 25 years younger than me! I pay 50 times more in taxes than ordinary people! I've defeated every enemy I've faced! I'll eventually become President! I am Senator Philips!
—To DIO after getting his front teeth ripped out by him

    Diamond Is Unbreakable 

Josuke Higashikata

"Sure. But first... Question: can you repeat what you just said about my hair, sir?"
— Josuke's fires back at a senior who insults his pompadour during their first meeting.

"I DARE YOU TO INSULT MY HAIR AGAIN! (...) Whoever insults my hair will get the full brunt of my fury! I WON'T STAND FOR THAT BULLSHIT!"
— Josuke's go-to Catchphrase whenever someone insults his pompadour.

— Josuke's other Catchphrase.

"Since you've got a clean bill of health from Crazy Diamond, when I pound into the ground, I can avoid looking like a coward, right?"
— To Yuya Fungami after healing him and before beating the shit out of him

"Man, I feel so invigorated! I feel like it's the early hours of New Year's day, and I just put on a fresh pair of my favorite underwear!"

"I'm gonna 'fix' that spaghetti and reduce it to its original ingredients!"
— Almost immediately after punching Tonio's spaghetti when it had mysteriously fixed Okuyasu's broken tooth.

" No matter how you look at it, I look like a normal high school student, so why would you ask me to help?"
— Josuke to a wounded Kira.

Koichi Hirose

" Why do I have to regretfully run away in fear of a murderer like "Please, god, help me"!? Shouldn't it be the other way around!? Why do I think that I'd rather be looking for a public restroom while I have diarrhea if I could only get out of this situation safely!? Isn't something wrong!? The one who should be running away in fear... is you, murderer!"
— Koichi fighting Sheer Heart Attack

"Yeah, yeah, whatever. You're going to kill me. Good for you. But..... I found out your name. That makes you pretty careless. You might get away for now, but will you be able to live with the fact that some fucking brat got your name so easily? Let me say that again... some fucking brat...... got your name! You're totally exposed! I'll be waiting for you in Hell!"
— Koichi cursing Kira after revealing he knows everything about him

Jotaro Kujo

"Nice watch. Go ahead and take on last look at it, cuz I'm about to bust it up. To be clear, by "it" I mean your face."
— Jotaro to Yoshikage Kira

"Good freaking grief, I take it back, up close that watch is tacky as hell. Although, to be fair, I see it as the least of your worries now. There's something that's gonna look a lot worse than that piece of junk. And that, my friend, is your putrid face."
— Jotaro to Yoshikage Kira, moments before unleashing a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown rivaled only by the one delivered to Steely Dan.

"Koichi, you're the most reliable guy I've ever met."
— Jotaro to Koichi after the latter disabled Kira from using Bites The Dust

Joseph Joestar

"I just wanted to look cool in front of my little boy."
— When Josuke asks him why he cut his nerves to find a baby.

Rohan Kishibe

"If... If I bait him into coming... if I hand him over to you... w-will you really keep your promise and spare my life? I need to hear you say the words." (...) "Sorry, but I refuse! You should know that one of Rohan Kishibe's favorite pastimes is saying "no" to fools who think they're tough shit. So, I'm afraid your meal has been canceled."
— While being held by Highway Star and given a way to get rid of him by handing him to Josuke.

"DO YOU THINK THAT I, ROHAN KISHIBE, DRAW MANGA FOR MONEY AND FAME!? I draw comics because I want to be read! That's the one and only reason. I couldn't care less about anything else!"
— Rohan to Koichi when he questioned his motives for attacking him.

"You may think that hairstyle is cool, but it doesn't suit you at all! It's lame!"
— Rohan insulting Josuke's hair to get him susceptible to Heaven's Door...which fails miserably.

Yoshikage Kira

"What a beautiful Duwang! (chew) There must be no other place as pretty as this town. This feels like a picnic."
— While contemplating the beauty of Morioh in the infamous Duwang Scanslations

"PHEWWW~ When I was a kid... you know Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, right...? I saw it in an art book. When I saw Mona Lisa's hands folded by her knee... how do I say this...? It's a bit crude, but... I got... a BONER."
— While discussing how he discovered his hand fetish.

"When I was a kid, I saw Mona Lisa from my garmmar school art book. The first time I saw her, with hands on her knee... how do I say this... I had a boner..."
— The above line as it appears in the Duwang Scanslations (surprisingly enough, it's rather accurate to the Japanese version, save for the "garmmar" typo)

"I want to show that woman the true Yoshikage Kira. I want her to hear how I feel deep inside. That I want to take your slender neck into these hands and strangle you to death."
— Kira fighting against his impulses to adjust to his new life as Kosaku Kawajiri

— Kira losing it after getting so close to satisfying his urges

"Sorry, but Killer Queen has already left its mark on the doorknob."
— Kira before killing Shigechi with Bites the Dust

"Behold the genius of my Killer Queen. All evidence of my true self has been destroyed."
— Kira after killing Shigechi with Bites the Dust

"You can call me Yoshikage Kira. I'm currently 33 years old. Not that you care, but I reside in northeast Morioh's villa district, also I've yet to marry. In order to make a living, I work for Kame Yu department stores. After a long day's work, I return home no later than 8 PM. I don't like smoking, but do enjoy the occasional drink. I'm always in bed by 11 PM, and I make it a point to get no less than 8 hours of sleep each night. Before bed, I drink a warm glass of milk, it's always coupled with 20 minutes of stretching to decompress from the long work day. Sweet dreams are the usual result of this. I then awake as refreshed and recharged as a newborn child, ready to take on the day's challenges, and after my last checkup I was given a clean bill of health. For as long as I can remember, I've done everything in my power to live a productive life that allows me to pursue a lasting inner peace. This may be a foreign concept, but I choose not to concern myself with winning or losing, life's troubles, or enemies who bring sleepless nights. That is how I cope with this backwards life we find ourselves living, it's what brings me happiness in a world fraught with hardship and misery. Of course, if I were ever to engage in combat, I would win the battle without question."
Revealing his identity to Shigechi with the knowledge that he will not be around long enough to tell anyone

"When I was a child, you’ve heard of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, right? When I saw that painting in an art book, when I first saw that, I don’t know how to put it. Um this is a bit dirty, but… I got an erection… I just cut out the part with her hands and hung it in my room for a while. I want to cut off yours too! My name is Yoshikage Kira! I’ve killed 48 women with beautiful hands up to now. You’re the only one! You’re the only one who will know my identity!"
— Kira revealing his past and motives to a hospital worker and preparing to use Bites The Dust.


Jotaro Kujo: (to the girls) Hey, you can cackle like hens about his hair on your own time.
(Josuke Higashikata becomes triggered about the mention of his hair)
Dark brown-haired groupie: This guy has no idea about the beast he's just released.
Auburn-haired groupie: Why'd he talk about his hair that way?
Josuke Higashikata: Bastard! Do you want to repeat what you just said about my hair?!
Auburn-haired groupie: Oh. This isn't good.
Dark brown-haired groupie: You don't have to tell me. The one thing that sets Josuke off like nothing else
Koichi Hirose: This is just what happened before.
Jotaro: Hold on a minute, Josuke. I wasn't trying to take a shot at your hair...
(an angry Josuke charges towards Jotaro, activating Crazy Diamond in the process)
Jotaro: Damn! Here he comes!
(Star Platinum punches Josuke in the jaw, causing him to spit blood)
— Josuke and Jotaro's misunderstanding on the former's hairstyle

    Vento Aureo 

Giorno Giovanna

"Luca... Don't make me say the same thing twice. I've told you that I already paid, so I don't have any. So please don't make me say it a third time."
— To Leaky-Eye Luca

"You wouldn't believe me if I told you it was an accident, would you? So I'm going to be disposed of, right? And you came here fully prepared, right? When you're going to dispose of someone, you always prepared for the possibility that you could end up being the one disposed of, right?"
— To Bucciarati

"I plan on defeating your boss and taking over this city. In order to get rid of gangsters that sell drugs to children, I'm going to have become a gangster myself."
— To Bucciarati

"I, Giorno Giovanna, have a dream!"
Giorno's Catchphrase

"You told me there were two paths, but sadly, you only have one."
— Giorno to Black Sabbath

"So an act of disrespect is justification for murder in your book, huh? I see now. You taught me a very important lesson. Which is handy since you disrespected the life of that innocent old man. I took the liberty of changing one of your guns into your favorite snack. It's your last meal, Polpo. Hope you enjoy it."
— Indirectly to Polpo moments before his death

Cioccolata: B-but you said... th-that if I just stayed still... that I-I would still m-make it out of this alive...
Giorno: "Oh, give me a break. If you really thought I was being serious, then you're the worthless fool... I don't spare pieces of shit!"
— Giorno before subjecting Cioccolata to the infamous 7 page/30 seconds beatdown.

Bruno Bucciarati

"This taste... Is the taste of someone who's lying! Giorno Giovanna!"
— Bucciarati after licking Giorno's face to intimidate him

"Speak! You know who's responsible. Were you told not to tell anyone? Let's have you tell me who did Luca in."
— Bucciarati during his interrogation of Giorno over Luca's death

"I can tell you've lived life as the eternal screwup. Don't change on my account."
— To Pesci before defeating him.

— To Pesci after defeating him. (''It's Italian for "Farewell")

Bucciarati: The boss had us act as her bodyguards so that he could kill his daughter with his own hands. Because she shares his blood, she could have figured out his true identity. I found that out and... I couldn't forgive him. I couldn't just come back and pretending I didn't see that. That's why I betrayed him!
Fugo: How could you...?
Mista: Are you insane, Bucciarati?
Abbacchio: You know exactly what happens to traitors, no matter who it is. The boss never lets anyone get away. Hell, Venice could be already be surrounded by the boss' elite guard.
Bucciarati: You're right, and that's why I'm going to need help. If any of you are willing to accompany me, come down these stairs and get on the boat. But, I will not order any of you to come with me. I won't even ask you to come with me. I did this all on my own, so you don't need to feel obligated to come with me. This may come off as arrogant, but I'm going to say it anyway: I did this because I believe I'm right. I have no regrets. Despite the world we live in, I want to continue on the path that I believe in. If we can just find his weakness... Though we're only fleeing now, I will defeat the boss, no matter what. I will find his weakness, no matter what!
— To his team members, defending his reasoning for betraying the boss.

"Giorno... Actually, I was reborn. When I met you back home in Naples, when I betrayed the organization... My soul had been fated to slowly die, but it was reborn, thanks to you. This is what true happiness is. This is how it should be. Don't worry about it. Please give everyone my regards."
— Bucciarati as his soul ascends into the sky during the battle with Chariot Requiem and Diavolo

Leone Abbachio

"Stupid shit? No. This has to do with my safety. I can’t just carelessly reveal my Stand ability in front of a stranger I can’t trust. Bucciarati, I don’t know what made you trust this guy, but I don’t consider him a part of the team."
—Abbachio refusing to reveal his Stand while he, Bruno, and Giorno under attack.

"Giorno Giovanna, you’re one crazy bastard. All this just to prove yourself... What the hell is wrong with you?"
— When Giorno willingly lets himself get attacked to get Abbachio to use Moody Blues

"Fugo's absolutely right. What you did is basically suicide. No matter where in the world you might run to, you'll never find a safe haven again. Besides, I pledged my loyalty to the organization. It's not like I pledged my loyalty to you. That being said... I never had a home or place I wanted to go. The only time I'm ever at ease... is when I'm with you, Bucciarati."
— Abbacchio deciding to join Bucciarati to defeat the boss.

Panacotta Fugo

" You stupid delinquent! Are you messing with me!? How many times do I have to teach you this before you learn!? YOU SHIT FOR BRAINS! You said 6 times 5 equals 30! So how the hell is the answer less than 30!?"
— Fugo to Narancia after stabbing him in the face with a fork for getting a math problem wrong.


"Leave this place, Bruno Bucciarati. If you emerge from that pillar, you will die."
— Diavolo, to Bruno Bucciarati before swiftly making due on his promise.

"This is a test. I've accepted this test to stand victorious against my past. A person grows once they are able to defeat their weaker self. Wouldn't you agree, Jean Pierre Polnareff?"
— Diavalo, to Polareff, after revealing himself as Doppio

"Only the results! In this world, only the results matter!"
— Diavolo's signature phrase, and his greatest belief.

Gold Experience Requiem: The answer... is plain... truth. Your eyes are not deceiving you, what you see is very real. Playing out before you are the results of your actions. However... though you might be able to witness the truth, you can never hope to reach it. Your powers are immaterial. It doesn't matter who you are, no one could ever overcome this barrier. Behold... Gold Experience Requiem's true strength. Its nature remains as secret even to my user, Giorno Giovanna.
Diavolo: ...lest he's punished! I'll even strip you of any chance chance to regret your actions, you brat! (Wait, that's...right before--but I...) How dare you! Only I may bend time! (No, but premonitions... always become reality! The future has already been written: King Crimson is bound for victory!)
— The buildup to Diavolo's infinite death loop courtesy of Gold Experience Requiem

Diavolo: Bungling amateurs...In the end, you failed to kill me. Unsurprising. But still...something troubles me: My premonition clearly showed that I would be one to why? What twisted powers did Requiem give him? When I get my hands on you, you'll pay! But first things first, I must break free from this damn current! Heheheheheh. luck is turning...
(Diavolo gets pushed back as blood flows out of his torso)
Drugged killer: Nice try, cazzone! D-Don't you... s-snatch my coat! I'll cut you I swear! Just try me, I'll serve you like a deli slice! Hehehehehe! What's wrong? You curious? I think you think I won't do it? Think again, bitch! Hehe, hahahahahahah! I'll show you, dumbass! Hehehehe! I'll poke ya full of holes, ya weird strawberry with legs!
Diavolo: (sees his hand covered in blood and gets knocked back, lying on the ground in pain) W-what...did you!?
Drugged killer: Come on!!
Diavolo: This can't... (coughs up blood) What is this...?
Drugged killer: It's my coat, ya bitch!
Diavolo: I-I cant...I can't move! (coughs up more blood) Why the hell can't I move...? (coughs up more blood) Please help, somebody!
Drugged killer: It's my coat... You ain't never gonna get it...
Diavolo: This can't be how I die... I-I am...I am Diavolo! A common hoodlum couldn't possibly be my undoing! That doesn't make any sense! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
— The first of Diavolo's infinite deaths

Diavolo: Where am I? Hold on... how did I get on this table? Just a moment ago, I barely managed to escape the river...
Doctor: Let's see... procedural date is the 25th. Time 11:20 a.m. File Number 68. Acting Physician, Dr. Monica Ultello here. The deceased looks to be an adult male, 30-40 years old. Identity is unknown. Condition of his skin suggests time of death was 48 to 50 hours ago. Commencing autopsy to find out cause of death.
Diavolo: Enough of this! I won't play your sick game!
Monica: The body was discovered in close proximity to the river... (Diavolo: Are you deaf, woman? I demand you explain yourself now! HEY, LADY!)
(Dr. Monica Ultello grabs a scalpel)
Diavolo: Ugh! Not again... W-Why can't I move?... The hell did you do to me?! That felt hurt... I'm talking to you, don't ignore me! Who do you think you are? Put that thing away!
(Dr. Monica Ultello dissects his chest)
Diavolo: GAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!! Dammit... why am I just letting this happen? The pain... IT'S UNBEARABLE! Somebody help!
Monica: Cause of death is a laceration to the liver, likely caused by a knife. The lack of hesitation wounds means this was not suicide. I'll open up his abdomen and check, just to be sure.
(Dr. Monica Ultello pulls out Diavolo's liver)
Monica: His liver is in good health, the color's excellent.
(Dr. Monica Ultello grabs a bone cutter and starts dissecting Diavolo's abs)
— The second of Diavolo's infinite deaths

Diavolo: Thank God. Was it all just a horrible nightmare? No, this isn't where I was...
(The traffic light goes green as Diavolo watches the cars pass on the street)
Diavolo: Hold on, now. What time is it? Where am I? Last I recall, I'd been thrown into the Tiber... Then there was that terrible pain... I can still feel the cold steel... It was far too real to be a damnable dream! But... how am I still alive?
Old man: Excuse me. You okay there, sir? You really shouldn't sit there. If you need medical attention, I can call an ambulance.
(The old man's pet dog starts barking at Diavolo)
Old man: Back off, girl!
(Diavolo tries to get away from the dog, but trips at the edge of the sidewalk as an oncoming car arrives)
Diavolo: What is this madness? None of this makes sense! How could I meet such an undignified end? Don't tell me... This is...
(Diavolo lands on the tarmac as the car gets closer)
(The car runs Diavolo over)
— The third of Diavolo's infinite deaths

"How many deaths must I die!? What will happen to me next? How much longer do I have to wait for the end?! Stay back! L-Leave me be! D-Don't come closer... STAY AWAY! LEAVE ME ALONE!!!"
— Diavolo's last words, after being subject to a never-ending experience of death courtesy of Gold Experience Requiem.


"So naïve, do you really believe this... is the end? If only you had accepted the stone's mercy, all would be peaceful. But you chose to remain enslaved to fate, that which is carved in stone cannot be changed. Whoever you are, I hope you're ready. A perilous journey of hardship awaits, and for some of you... it will be the last one. I wonder... are all of you like him? That young man flung himself off a tall building... all for a chance to save his friend. Perhaps... the path you are bound to walk isn't one of meaningless suffering. The adversity that you'll endure may well be the crucible of hope for another, and perhaps, it could be the birth of a greater purpose. Wishing for their safety will do nothing. I can only hope that they are sleeping slaves. That's it... sleeping slaves who will eventually awaken to discover some meaning in their suffering..."
— Scolippi, in the epilogue flashback, and foreshadowing the events of Part 5.


"Everyone knows the capital of France. But English speakers pronounce it "Paris", while most say "Paree", the way it's supposed to be. But somehow, "Venice" has replaced the real "Venezia" as the global standard. Like those stories, The Merchant of Venice and Death in Venice... (clenches his teeth, then throws out his frustration) WHY?! CALL THE DAMN BOOK DEATH IN VENEZIA! IT'S NOT THAT HARD! ARE WE NOT GOOD ENOUGH?! LEARN A LITTLE ITALIAN, PUTTANA, AND CALL THE THING WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE! WHAT KIND OF POMPOUS BULLSHIT ARE THEY ON ABOUT?!"
— Ghiacco, being pissed at the spelling of Venezia/Venice.


Random rich guy: The hell are you doing, you spindly little shit!? You think I'm gonna let you get away with this!? This stain is gonna cost you! My suit cost four million lire, pal! Now I'm gonna make you pay!!
Narancia: (smacks the guy with a glass of wine) So you're our next foe!
Mista: What!?
Narancia: (kicking the unconscious guy on the ground) Don't hear you denying it!
Mista: (also kicking the same guy) You're trying to start trouble!?
Narancia: (still kicking) Take that, cazzone! And that! And that! And one of these!
Abbacchio: (looks at the kicking, takes a sip of wine... then joins the kicking) (Stops a bit) Hey, pump the brakes for a second. I don't think this guy's an enemy. He's out cold. A random citizen. Go figure.
Narancia: Wha!? Are you for real!? Oh shit, what am I gonna do now!?
Mista: Yeah, sucks for you, the stain's not going anywhere. Guess that's what happens when you mess up and spill red wine on a white suit.
Narancia: No way I can pay for something this fancy!
Mista: Putting a button there should cover it up nicely, so good thing for you, the stain is where it is.
Abbacchio: (feeds the guy with their meals, suspected to be poisonous) Before we let this guy go, let's have him taste our food for poison...

Giorno: You were close. I drew out my speech in order buy myself time. The bullet tore a hole to your head still had to mature, before eventually making its way back to the initial wound. The shrapnel that drew it was lodged in your skull and returned to its original form as a beetle, one whose growth I happened to accelerate greatly with Gold Experience when I aimed for the propellers. I wanted to be certain you were completely neutralized meaning I had to finish you off, whether or not I can still hear a heartbeat.
Cioccolata: B-but you said... th-that if I just stayed still that I-I would still make it out of this alive...
Giorno: "Oh, give me a break. If you really thought I was being serious, then you're the worthless fool. I don't spare pieces of shit!"
Cioccolata: Rah! What did you just call me?!
— The build up to the 7-page/30-second beatdown.

Giorno: Oh, and there's one more thing: Since I'm not actually healing your body, you're still going to have a bit of residual pain.
Mista: GAH! WHAT THE HELL! Do you have to be so rough, Giorno? Take it easy on me, I'm injured!
Giorno: I already told you, there's nothing I can do. Settle down and take it like a Mafioso. Besides, there's about 18 more to go, and you'll have to strip it if you want this to work.
Mista: AAH! GIORNO!!
Narancia: Ah, there they are! Mista! Huh?
Mista: (in a very awkward positioning with Giorno) Would you stop doing so hard?! Ah, leave my damn clothes on, it's too intense! Gah! Woah! OOH!
Narancia: (GASP!) (cue making a Big "OMG!" face like Joseph Joestar (manga) or Dramatic Thunder (anime))
Bucciarati: Narancia? Did you find them?
Narancia: Huh!? Why, u-uh... No? But...Argh! There's something in my eyes! (covering his eyes) It's so hard to see in this early morning light! I'll keep after it, though!
Mista: Ah, Giorno! No! Stop! Agh! I can't take it anymore! NOT SO ROUGH, DAMMIIIIIITTT!!!!
The 'succ' scene (Giorno trying to heal Mista's wounds and ending up making extreme Double Entendre)

    Stone Ocean 

Jolyne Kujo

"Yare Yare Dawa./Good freakin' grief."
—Jolyne's Catchphrase

"Good freakin' grief, Gwess. Shut up and listen: You said everything has a name, did you? Then I'll name my abilty too... It'll be Stone Free... Because somehow I'm gonna free myself from this sea of stone! Did you hear me? STONE FREE! That's the name!"
—To Gwess before beating her to a pulp

"American style. French style. Japanese style. Italian. Specifically Naples style. The world's fingers for fuck off."
— Jolyne to Kenzo while Flipping the Bird in four languages.

"An organism that can have sex with anything it encounters... I'm kinda jealous... I mean—no! That's just gross!"
—Jolyne on Heavy Weather's snails

"Come on, Father Pucci!"
Jolyne's Last Stand against Pucci

"[You should have just released zero gravity from the start. You could have escaped from my wrath using the wind pressure. If you'd released it, well, you still had distance between yourself and Stone Free. Instead, because of your arrogance, you wait. Now the air is pulling you BACK TO ME!"
—Jolyne before beating Jumpin' Jack Flash for 2 pages/10 seconds

Jotaro Kujo

"I've always... cherished you."
— To Jolyne before he lost consciousness

Narciso Anasui

"Look at this, Weather. What a crappy guidebook! None of the characters are on it! I want to see the Disney characters goddammit! Where the fuck is Mickey?"
— In the Bohemian Rhapsody arc

Emporio Alniño

"Don't you understand? You lost to 'fate'! Walking the path of 'justice' is true 'fate'!"
— To Pucci during the final showdown

"Emporio. My name... My name is Emporio."
To Irene after the universe resets


"Do you believe in gravity?"

"Our Lord Jesus Christ was fated to be put on the cross. Our holy mother Mary was fated to lose her son. In order for humans to attain 'happiness', they have to overcome 'destiny'... And for Dio and I, the thing we must overcome is the Joestar bloodline!"
— Pucci to Jolyne just after getting C-Moon

"Jotaro Kujo, your daughter is your weakness."
— Pucci to Jotaro after achieving Made In Heaven

"In the name of God, I will destroy you! Emporio, your futile actions... You've merely turned your screams into the trumpets of hell!"
— Pucci to Emporio after Emporio tricks Pucci into inserting Weather Report's Stand disc in him.

"Subliminal effects are all in the mind. But, humans can age faster just by willing themselves to do so... And give themselves ulcers just by being stressed. Once the heart is impacted by this effect, it doesn't matter how hard one struggles to block it out of his mind. You would understand... You're a Stand user, after all. If I were to start filming what's going on right now... The people of this town would only see themselves as snails, rolling in the filth that they created, thinking that that is the truth. This phenomenon will continue as long as Weather is alive... and besides, Weather, you would have eventually noticed that I had taken my own ability to see. That's why I took the time to explain this ability to you."
— To Weather Report.

"No, you have to end this, Emporio! You can still stop Weather! Do not let him do this...! After I finally obtained the ability I worked so hard for! God wished it to be so! It was an ability that God chose for me to possess! A new history of humanity will be born, and the future of mankind will be saved! We haven't even reached the point in time yet, where time acceleration started in Cape Canaveral. Made In Heaven has yet to be completed. As long as it's after Cape Canaveral, I will gladly sacrifice my life! But if I die now, it will mean that everything I've done thus far would have been utterly meaningless! The fate of all humanity will be changed forever! If I die, people won't be able to see their future as it happens before them, which means they won't be able to face their fate! Don't you remember?! Accepting their fate is how they'll be truly happy! It was my mission to bring true happiness! I cannot die here!"
— Begging Emporio to spare him. It doesn't work.

Funny Valentine

"Suppose that you were sitting down at a table. The napkins are in front of you, which napkin would you take? The one on your left? Or the one on your right? The one on your left side? Or the one on your right side? Usually you would take the one on your left side. That is correct' too. But in a larger sense on society, that is wrong. Perhaps I could even substitute 'society' with the 'Universe'. The correct answer is that 'It is determined by the one who takes his or her own napkin first.' Yes? If the first one takes the napkin to their right, then there's no choice but for others to also take the right napkin. The same goes for the left. Everyone else will take the napkin to their left, because they have no other option. This is 'society'... who are the ones that determine the price of land first? There must have been someone who determined the value of money, first. The size of the rails on a train track? The magnitude of electricity? Laws and Regulations? Who was the first to determine these things? Did we all do it, because this is a Republic? Or was it Arbitrary? NO! The one who took the napkin first determined all of these things! The rules of this world are determined by that same principle of 'right or left'! In a society like this table, a state of equilibrium, once one makes the first move, everyone must follow! In every era, this world has been operating by this napkin principle. And the one who 'takes the napkin first' must be someone who is respected by all. It's not that anyone can fulfill this role... those that are despotic or unworthy will be scorned. And those are the 'losers'. In the case of this table, the 'eldest' or the 'Master of the party' will take the napkin first... Because everyone 'respects' those individuals."
— Explaining his outlook towards society

"Power! Glory! Happiness! Culture! Law! Money! Food! The Hearts of People! I have taken the first napkin!"
— After acquiring Love Train

"My heart and actions are utterly unclouded! They are all those of justice."
— To Johnny Joestar during their final confrontation


Josuke Higashikata

"My name... is Josuke Higashikata... and my memories from when I was born... are long gone from this world... and they'll never come back... but even so... there's something I'm certain of. I am your son. No matter where I go, or what era I live in, that's something certain that I can believe in. ...Mom... [...] I'll save you. I swear it. Wherever the New Rokakaka fruit is, I'm going to get my hands on it!"
— To an unconscious Holy Kira, after she saves his life, reaffirming his motivation.

Yasuho Hirose

This is a story about breaking a curse... The beginning of it... A curse, as explained by one person, is an impurity that has been handed down because of a sin committed by a distant ancestor you know nothing about. Some describe it using the example of hatred that continued to exist after Sakanoue no Tamuramaro subjugated the Emishi. And by yet another interpretation, when mankind first came into existence and things were firmly classified as black or white, the friction that grew between them is what a curse is. But whichever it may be, a curse is something that must be broken. Or else, you'll be defeated by it... This mysterious boy who was buried in the ground... who in the world is he? Where did he come from?
—Her soliloquy in Chapter 1, setting the tone for the rest of the series

"JoJolion"... This is a story about breaking a curse. There are things in this worlds that the eye cannot see. In JoJolion, that is the shape of a person's heart. The prices the Higashikata Family had to pay and the sacrifices they had to make were far too large... and cruel. That could be seen in the form of the eldest son collapsed in the passageway between the house and the garage... and in the form of the crying family members. A woman that hadn't seen her mother since she was a little girl, couldn't forgive her for everything she's done, and got upset, a boy that acted out of selfish desire and was injured, and a woman that had had a secret until a little while earlier and now just lost her husband. In this garage where that family had gathered, what do you think one could see? When you looked at the New Locacaca plant that had broken to pieces and was lost forever... and at the Higashikata estate that had been destroyed by a broken-off part of a plane... and at the debris among the playing cards scattered on the floor, just what could you see? It was not despair. To me, Yasuho Hirose, it looked like hope. The family all acted in the name of hope... After having fallen down in the hallway because of the calamity... after everything had ended, the members of the Higashikata Family moved further into the back of the garage. That was all for the sake of hope. In the smooth, shiny skin of the eldest son's cheek... the hope of the Higashikata Family was visible. Because at that moment... the curse was broken.
—Her soliloquy in Chapter 108, tying up the series

Norisuke Higashikata IV

"Your Stand is like your asshole: you can't go around showing it off to other people."
— To Josuke

Jobin Higashikata

"Humans... they're happy when they're trying to overcome something. Even for someone like me... someone fortunate enough to be born as the eldest son of a wealthy family. I need to keep climbing higher... or I will never be "happy". It's all relative."
— To Dolomiti to convince him to find his Blue Lagoon.

"There is good and bad luck in this world. That's... something I've been told. There are situations where if you'd gotten somewhere one second sooner, you might have been in an accident or avoided an accident. Or you met or didn't meet someone important when you went somewhere. Things were the results is good or bad, and the cause is good or evil. There're situations like that... I've been told. But that is a misapprehension. A societal misunderstanding caused by a large number of people living together. Once you clear away anything extraneous and view each individual in each individual situations, what we find existing around us is... simply strength and weakness. Good and bad luck, good and evil, legal and illegal, you can forget all that. There exist the strong that survived and the weak which are destroyed. Those two, and nothing more."
— To his wife, explaining his view on society

Satoru Akefu/Wonder Of U

"Did you perhaps… Come here… Intending to ‘Pursue’ me? I see… So you are pursuing me… I understand. So then, the lid of this jar, have you tried opening it? What I’m saying is… Simply looking at that jar from the outside, you wouldn’t know for certain that what’s inside it is a ‘Fruit’, no…? Isn’t that right? Though it certainly seems to be fragments of ‘Something’… But looking from the outside, those may be potato fragments… or perhaps onion fragments… it may not look like an onion… but that definitely looks like it could be a large mushroom! How can you be so definitive in saying that what’s inside that jar is a ‘Fruit’? I’m explaining the fact that you ‘Opened’ the jar. Because you received that package, you opened the lid with your hands, you ‘Smelled’ it. And it’s because it gave off the sweet and sour scent of a ‘Fruit’… that you came into this room thinking it was a ‘Fruit’. You got all excited thinking ‘I’ve got an exclusive scoop here’, didn’t you? And then… you perhaps got some fruit juice from the lid stuck to your finger. Just a little of it. Or perhaps you were careless and licked that finger. If fate were particularly unlucky, there’s a rather good chance that when you were putting the lid back on, some fruit juice seeped into a small cut on your skin or your fingernail."
— To the reporter Taoka, a very long-winded, threatening monologue to explain what he did to trigger his ability.

"Umm... so, personally... this is the first time this has happened, so I'm a bit surprised. Only a centimeter away... I mean, I don't think there's ever been someone who's gotten that close to me... without a, you know... calamity occurring. I'm not really... not really sure what happens at one centimeter away... 'cause it's my first time. I don't really understand it either. Seriously. But in the flow of calamity... there's nobody who can attack me. Not a single person. That, I know for sure. Wonder of U."
— After being cornered by Rai Mamezuku.
