Created by a YouTube user named Teso Teragoya, the Passione 24 Hours series is the outcome of corrupting the PlayStation 2 video game adaptation of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo, which produced results as hilarious as they are horrifying. There are 12 episodes in total, with partial translation available here.

Passione 24 Hours contains examples of:

  • Accidental Pun: Even though it almost certainly was not intended by the author, the ones familiar with the actor Bruno Kirby can certainly find an additional cause of amusement watching Bruno's battle with Diavolo, during which the former takes the appearance of Kirby.
  • Adaptational Badass: Many characters end up being far more action - involved than their original source counterparts.
    • Over the course of the story, Leaky-Eye Luca gets revealed as Polpo's Stand, Dio, and the Stand user of Notorious B.I.G, in addition to repeatedly coming Back from the Dead in order to exact his revenge on Giorno. Compare this with his original role in the manga, where he is just a regular gangster who gets killed in the same chapter he debuted in.
    • The old janitor in the manga is an ordinary old man who accidentally gets murdered by Black Sabbath. Here, despite him still dying, he somehow comes Back from the Dead to stop Luca from retreating into the shadows and later (temporarily) kills Secco by drop - kicking him in the face. He is also heavily implied to be a part of the Joestar bloodline.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Despite Giorno already being an Anti-Hero in the original material, he never sank so low as to kill an innocent man for interrupting his dance; neither did he murder one of his allies for being a jerk or practice human experimentation.
  • Alternate Universe: Judging by the backstory provided at the beginning of Episode 1, this series might as well be set in a parallel universe where the plot of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure manga is completely different.
    • Part 1 is called Napoli Resident Uncle and, surprisingly, doesn't diverge that much from the source, aside from Jonathan now living in Napoli.
    • Part 2, Battle Second Rate, features Joseph and friends fighting against Ultimate DIO, Earthware DIO, and Ainz DIO, with Joseph eventually being obliterated and Ceasar suffering the same fate as the original manga's Kars. Also, Lisa Lisa was revealed to be the Ultimate Lifeform.
    • Part grandson, which is titled Stardust Dadadadadars, seems to be about Jotaro travelling to Jotaro in order to defeat Jotaro and save his grandson.
    • Advertisement:
    • Part Jotaro, named Jotaromond is unbreakable, is set in the year 9999 and ends with the entire universe being destroyed as a result of the protagonists pursuing 9ra 9kage.
    • This game is apparently adapted from Part 9, with no mention made of parts 5 - 8.
  • Anti-Hero: This series's version of Giorno is even more brutal than the original, and is willing to kill people for simply annoying him. He even used Gold Experience Requiem on Bucciarati at the end of their fight.
  • Ascended Meme:
    • In Episode 2, one of the first things Leaky-Eye Luca says when confronting Giorno before his Boss Fight is "Rero"
    • The "Diavolos" meme is alluded to in the Episode 12, where at least ten copies of Diavolo are shown to exist in the "Groundhog Day" Loop Giorno put him into.
    • Earlier in the same episode, Mista becomes King Crimson, completely with a tiny version of his face acting as Epitaph. As already stated on Part 5's Memetic Mutation page, it's a common joke among the Part 5 fans to call King Crimson "Mista's true stand" due to design similarities between them.
  • BFG: During his confrontations with Ghiaccio, Mista's gun increases in size, becoming a fully-fledged bazooka. It happens once again in Episode 10, when he is fighting Secco.
  • Body Horror: Where to begin with... The top picture contains just the most benign examples.
    • At one moment during his chase after Bucciarati in Episode 1, Giorno's head is detached from his spine, bouncing at the level of his crotch.
    • Fugo turning into a giant head on legs in Episode 4. Luckily, later Fugo's head returns back to normal... but his right hand becomes bigger than his whole body.
    • In Episode 8, Leaky-Eye Luca makes his comeback as a pair of eyeballs, one of which has limbs growing from it.
    • Every single member of La Squadra appears extremely deformed (even by this series's standards) during their game of football with Doppio in Episode 9. The most outstanding out of them all, however, is Illuso, who has mutated into an enormous hand with his head attached to it.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall:
    • In Episode 3, Trish asks Narancia to buy her a copy of the Vento Aureo game.
    • At the end of Episode 10, the identity of the boss is revealed to be Hirohiko Araki himself, leaving Polnareff to weep in horror.
    • Araki appears once again in Episode 12, this time approaching Diavolo in the Infinite Death Loop.
  • Breast Expansion: During the entirety of Episode 8, Trish's boobs randomly change in size.
  • Broken Record: Giorno has a tendency to use this to insult defeated opponents. After winning the first fight against Bucciarati, he began sarcastically chanting "Are you alright Bucciarati? Are you alright Bucciarati? Why are you running away?" over and over again. He later does the same to Diavolo after he was trapped in the death loop.
    • Leaky-eyed Luca continuously yells "You are finished!" long after his death.
    • Pericolo continuously says Bucciarati's name during his fight with Trish.
  • Butt-Monkey: Not only is Bruno completely bald and needs to wear a wig because his teammates won't be able to recognise him without one, he always ends up losing his wigs under various circumstances.
    • There is also Melone, who is constantly told by his own stand to shut up, even when he isn't present (which, thanks to Melone being Dummied Out in the original PS2 game, is most of the time). And his only actual appearance in the series ends with him getting hit in the face by a football.
  • Call-Back: Extremely abundant.
    • Formaggio has Mickey Mouse's ears and nose at one point in the Episode 3. Later, during Episode 9, a statue of him in his Mickey Mouse attire appears. He also possesses the same look while playing football with the rest of La Squadra.
    • At the end of Episode 5, when Bucciarati said "Arrivederci!", the subtitle translated it as "Sayonarancia" instead of "Sayonara". In Episode 7, the narrator actually says "Sayonarancia" when Bucciarati told Narancia not to follow him.
    • In the Episode 7, Narancia knocks Bucciarati' s wig off his head as a reaction to a bad pun. Upon Narancia's death in Episode 11, his disembodied soul does it again before departing.
    • The final episode has many callbacks to the glitched text in the first episode, such as "げんた誰ごす?" and "ジョルルノジジババァナ".
  • Death by Adaptation: Surprisingly, Joseph Joestar, who gets obliterated by Mom Kars at the end of Part 2 (at least according to the beginning narration).
  • Decomposite Character: Diavolo and Shadow Diavolo/The Boss seem to be two separate characters here, with Shadow Diavolo even going along with Bucciarati's team to defeat Diavolo. Episode 10 reveals Shadow Diavolo's true identity as Hirohiko Araki himself.
  • Desecrating the Dead: After finding Risotto's (very noisy) dead body, Bucciarati, apparently annoyed at his constant interruption, decided to pour Abbacchio Tea on him.
  • Dying Curse: In Episode 3, Formaggio, with his dying breath, declared that Bucciarati will soon die. Doubles as Five-Second Foreshadowing, since not even a minute after he said that, Aerosmith (which uses Bucciarati's model) gets devoured by Notorious BIG.
  • Fan Disservice: Giorno spends most of the second episode dressed in nothing but a two-piece swimsuit. This would normally count as Fanservice, if not for the fact that his head at one point gets replaced with the old janitor's.
  • Fate Worse than Death: After Abbacchio's death, Narancia momentarily brought him back to life by kicking him. Giorno then attempted to heal him with Gold Experience, but the healing was so painful that Abbacchio decided that death was better.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: The assassin squad is apparently called "fluffy toys" in this continuity, which does not make them any less dangerous.
  • Gag Haircut: Bucciarati's wig choices include such things as a red clown afro, Fugo's hair and Giorno.
  • Gainax Ending: After Diavolo is defeated, everyone save for Giorno becomes bald Bucciarati (even the deceased characters), and Coco Jumbo turns into Fugo's hair. The house that Giorno was in then collapses on him.
  • Gender Flip: As revealed at the end of Episode 7, Narancia here is actually a female, with this fact even serving as his Commonality Connection with Trish in this version.
    • Also seems to be the case with Kars, judging by how he is called "Mom Kars" by the narration.
  • Grand Theft Me: Starting from Episode 7, Trish's body constantly gets possessed by the ghost of Pesci, transforming her face and voice into Pesci's.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Pesci uses Prosciutto's corpse as a fishing rod during his battle with Bucciarati.
  • Hairstyle Malfunction: Poor Bruno can't stop losing his wigs, be it to a sudden gust of wind, flying Narancia, or some other occurrences.
    • Other than ever-suffering Bucciarati, there is also Fugo, who gets his hair punched off his head by Giorno in Episode 9. Luckily, it grows back after a couple of seconds.
    • Diavolo, or more exactly, every single Diavolo, loses his hair upon seeing Araki approach him.
  • Hartman Hips:
    • In Episode 3, Narancia grows in size tremendously while fighting Formaggio (despite Little Feet only being able to shrink things), and, for some reason, his giant form sports extremely wide hips.
    • Mista also has them at one point in Episode 7. In fact, his hips are so big that the ground shakes under his weight whenever he takes a step.
  • Heroic BSoD: Araki being revealed as the Boss at the end of Episode 10 sends Polnareff into one.
  • I Believe I Can Fly: Narancia flies away and snatches Bruno's wig upon being told an unfunny pun in Episode 7. A similar situation occurs again in Episode 11, only this time he steals the Stand Arrow in Bucciarati's head instead.
  • Idea Bulb: At one point in Episode 10, Secco gets one in the shape of Bucciarati's head (with tiny legs growing out of it).
  • Identical Stranger: This series's version of Aerosmith happens to look exactly like Bucciarati, with no explanation as to why.
  • I Never Told You My Name: For some reason, Fugo instantly recognizes Illuso when he sees him in the mirror.Explanation 
  • Interface Screw:
    • Due to Ghiaccio's dialogue subtitles glitching, the words he spoke ended up blotting out the screen, making the fight with him much more difficult. For some reasons, the Sex Pistols also block the screen during that fight.
    • At the end of Episode 9, Cioccolata's dialogue subtitles tend to block the view in similar way to Ghiaccio's. Thankfully, it's a cutscene instead of a boss battle, and the actual Boss Fight with him does not have these nuisances.
  • Interactive Narrator: The narrator occasionally interrupts the dialogue of the characters.
    • Episode 10 implied that the narrator was actually Shadow Diavolo.
  • It's Raining Men: Beginning with Episode 10, various numbers of Seccos start falling from the sky every now and then.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: In Episode 7, Bucciarati repeatedly asked Narancia not to follow him, telling him "Arrivederci, sayonarancia!" Narancia reacted by transforming himself into Aerosmith and knocking his wig away.
  • Laughing Mad: How Episode 2 begins, courtesy of Mario Zucchero, who wasn't even in the series proper.
  • Leitmotif: ''Staff Roll'' tends to play when someone (most often, Bucciarati) loses their hair.
  • Lost in Translation: Some of the puns are impossible to adequately translate into English.
    • In Episode 5, after Bruno loses his hair, Giorno's disembodied voice says "シンプルな丸刈り/shinpiru na marugari", the most accurate traslation of which being "a simple buzzcut". The original line is derived from Giorno saying that he wants to enjoy a simple Margarita, which is pronounced as "marugarita" in Japanese.
    • During Diavolo's time in the Infinite Death Loop, a dog shouts "one, one!" at him. You can only understand the humor of this moment if you know that English "one" happens to be pronounced the same as Japanese "wan", an onomatopoeia for barking.
  • Made of Iron: Mista survives getting shot in the head 20 times without any ill effects.
  • Me's a Crowd:
    • There are six iterations of Ghiaccio (and one Polpo) running around during the second phase of his Boss Fight.
    • Mista gets followed by a pack of Polpos that repeat his every move while battling Secco in Episode 10.
    • It occasionally starts raining Seccos every now and then, beginning with Episode 10.
    • In Episode 11, Bucciarati has to battle three Silver Chariot Requiems.
  • Mind Screw: This series, in spite of its nonsensical nature, seems to actually have some kind of lore. However, what exactly is that lore is anyone's guess, since the events shown are still extremely hard to comprehend.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • During Trish's fight with Notorious BIG (which is set on a plane), its texture is replaced with a picture of Joseph's face, possibly referring to his tendency to crash every plane he pilots.
    • Bruno, Narancia and Giorno reenact the infamous Torture Dance in Episode 8. An episode later Giorno attempts it again, this time with Abbacchio and Moody Blues as his dance partners.
    • In Episode 9, Fugo saves Doppio by crashing Aerosmith into Risotto and killing him, which is most likely a reference to how Araki originally intended for Fugo to return as an enemy working for the Boss.
    • In the same episode, after Abbacchio's death, Mista comments that he's eating at a restaurant, referencing his ultimate fate in the manga.
    • Narancia's soul turns into Aerosmith and flies into the sky at the end of Episode 11. The similar happened in the David Productions anime (although, of course, Narancia didn't steal Bruno's wig there).
  • Nightmare Face:
    • The most well known example is Abbacchio's epic Death Glare in Episode 4, where his eyes seem to sink deep into his head, leaving only black holes behind.
    • Everyone's faces (with the exception of Giorno and Bucciarati's) become extremely screwed up during the second half of Episode 9. Trish is possessed by Pesci's ghost once again; Fugo has no neck and appears to either be wearing sunglasses, or more disturbingly, have no eyes altogether; Narancia's face is stretched in every direction, resembling some kind of fleshy star; Abbacchio once again has his eyes missing, but in addition to this his nose now is located somewhere on his forehead; and there's something cardinally wrong with Mista's lower jaw.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Played with. As demonstrated near the end of Episode 7, everyone in the team except Giorno cannot recognize Bucciarati when he loses his wig, so Giorno has to cover up his head by any means necessary so he can finish talking.
  • The Right Hand of Doom: During the second fight with Illuso, Fugo enlarges his right arm to a ridiculous size and uses it to pummel him to death.
  • Running Gag:
    • Bucciarati losing his hair in some way.
    • The Capcom logo and the title screen glitching in a different way at the start of every episode.
    • The old cleaner's disembodied voice saying that there's no problem at all.
    • Narancia's disembodied voice saying "Huh, me?" and "Bikini nanda!"
    • Baby Face's disembodied voice telling Melone to shut up.
    • Giorno saying "That's Polpo's Stand!" every time he sees a new Stand.
    • Every time someone says "You're finished!", Leaky-eye Luca's voice chimes in and say the same thing.
    • The Boss' disembodied voice randomly shouting "Stay away from me!" (Yes. There is a lot of disembodied voices in this game.)
    • Trish's face being replaced by Pesci's (and the other way around).
    • Bucciarati randomly asking people to go shopping.
    • Giorno repeatedly asking Bucciarati if he's alright.
    • Various characters' heads turning giant.
    • Joseph Joestar, both the young and the old version, appearing out of nowhere.
  • Samus Is a Girl: At the end of Episode 7 Narancia reveals himself to be a girl.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: On several occasions, characters (most notably Fugo) actually say the "do do do" sound effects out loud.
  • Screw Yourself: Trish and her Stand share a passionate kiss in Episode 8.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Leaky - Eye Luca is directly stated by the narrator to actually be DIO (among other things), which does not in any way stop Giorno from murdering him several times.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Leaky-Eye Luka mentions something called "Tamaemon" during his battle with Giorno in Episode 2.
    • In Episode 3, Formaggio says "But, this is my swamp" after being defeated. He also sports Mickey Mouse's trademark ears and nose at several instances.
    • Before his battle with the aforementioned Formaggio, Narancia utters "Mario Sega Jotaro".
    • Bucciarati ending all his sentences with "pon" at the end of Episode 3 could be a shoutout to Magical Girl Raising Project's Fav.
    • In Episode 4, Fugo escapes the mirror world by copying Orga's infamous "don't you ever stop" pose.
    • At one moment in Episode 4, Fugo's right arm becomes enormous in size, making him look similar to the mutated William Birkin or, alternatively, to the "Coomer" meme from 4chan.
    • In Episode 5, when Prosciutto shot Mista repeatedly, Mista reenacted the "Worst Movie Death Scene Ever" meme from Kareteci Kız.
    • For almost the entire length of Episode 6, Mista is dressed as Spiderman, while Ghiaccio seems to be cosplaying DIO.
    • At the end of Episode 6, Mista and Narancia transform into Running Astroganger.
    • During his battle with King Crimson in Episode 7, Bucciarati turns into Kirby. Given that in the very same battle King Crimson gets reduced to nothing more than two giant hands, one can argue that it became Crazy Hand and Master Hand.
    • Bruno later takes the appearance of Pyramid Head while fighting Secco in Episode 10.
    • Giorno directly cites Kenshiro's famous line in Episode 12.
  • Sky Face: After Abbacchio's death, his face appears in the sky, and he laments that he always wanted to be a police officer since childhood. Unfortunately, Giorno and Narancia chimed in with their own wishes (Giorno wishes to be Gangstar and Narancia wishes to be a girl).
  • Stealth Pun: During the moment when the old janitor accidentally pours water on Giorno, the former has his model replaced with a pillar, making him a literal Pillar Man.
    • The car that Narancia is driving at the beginning of Episode 6 has four steering wheels. It's a four-wheel drive.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Judging by his fight with Bucciarati, Giorno apparently started out with Gold Experience Requiem. Though he never used it again until the final battle with the Boss.
  • Sudden Name Change: Due to the names glitching up, almost no character is ever called the same name twice. Most notably, Diavolo, at one point, calls his stand King Kong Crimson.
    • Leaky-eye Luca alone got almost half a dozen different names in the first episode.
  • Surreal Humor: This series in whole feels like a Jojo fan's fever dream, and the sheer weirdness of, well, everything that's happening on screen, somehow makes for a quite an amusing experience.
  • Team Killer:
  • Temporary Bulk Change: Narancia and Mista, for some reason, become extremely muscular after the "Golden succ" scene in Episode 6, but return back to their normal body types the next episode.
  • The Bus Came Back: Despite not leaving with the others, Fugo still manages to feature and play an active role in several episodes, most notably in Episode 9, where he lands a giant version of Aerosmith squarely on Risotto Nero, crushing him to death.
  • The Mirror Shows Your True Self: For some reason, at the end of Episode 3, Fugo appeared as the old cleaner in Illuso's mirror.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: In Episode 5, Prosciutto shoots Mista in the head 20 times (which is still not enough to kill him).
    • After repeatedly beating Diavolo up and throwing him into a river, Giorno decides to drop several cars on him just to make sure he's dead.
  • Title Drop: After Giorno finished Diavolo with Gold Experience Requiem:
    Giorno: His end is that there is no end. This is the ability of Gold Experience Requiem...
    Polpo's disembodied voice: ...24 hours.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Happens ever so often.
    • Polpo shoots himself in Episode 2, which doesn't stop him from participating in future events.
    • During Episode 7, everyone on Bucciarati's team except for Fugo ends up drowning because of Narancia sinking their boat. Come Episode 8, the whole gang seems to be fine.
    • Despite, well, all of La Squadra getting killed, they still come back to have a game of football together in Episode 9.
    • Secco gets killed by the old janitor at the end of Episode 9, but returns to fight Bruno in the very next episode.
  • Verbal Tic: Tons of characters gain one in this series.
    • Bucciarati abruptly started ending his sentences with "pon" after being ordered to retrieve the key from Pompei at the end of Episode 3.
    • Illuso ends most of his sentences with "the mirror" and "in the mirror".
    • Prosciutto ends his sentences with "the grateful".
  • Villains Out Shopping: Episode 9, among other things, features all the members of La Squadra (even Melone, who didn't appear in the game) having a game of football with Doppio.
  • Waddling Head:
    • Bruno turns into one on several occasions, including that one time he became Kirby.
    • Fugo in episode 4 is reduced to nothing but a giant head on legs at one point.
  • Weird Sun: The sun sometimes gets replaced by Bucciarati's bald head.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?:
    • Apparently Sticky Fingers's main ability is to brutally beat down different kinds of peaches. But only when Japan is closed.
      • It can also be used to add a tapper to objects statata sang songs on, whatever that means.
    • Aerosmith is unable to fly, but, according to its in-game description, can crash just like an airplane.
    • One of Purple Haze's abilities seems to be regenerating Fugo's hair in a space of seconds, if Episode 7 is anything to go by.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Giorno is, for some reason, wearing a bikini for at least a half of Episode 2.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Bucciarati's hair grows back blue after he takes a piece of ice from the ice machine.
  • Younger Than They Look:
    • Fugo is apparently six years old, despite looking and sounding like a teenage boy.
    • Exaggerated with Bucciarati, who is 20 seconds old.
