  • Character Tiers; One thing that's for certain is that Kakyoin is very much high tier due to his Mystic Trap setups. Petshop, meanwhile, is broken enough that he's tournament banned.
  • Common Knowledge:
    • Despite what the flash animation told you, DIO does not screech out "WRYYYYYYY!" in his Road Roller super. It's instead screeched by Shadow DIO in his "Charisma!!" super.
    • Despite what M.U.G.E.N and Warusaki 3's conversion of him may have told you, the version of DIO with his jacket on is not a playable character, but an unusable boss form. You only get to use DIO without his jacket or Shadow DIO.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Hol Horse appears to be one, especially considering his inclusion in All-Star Battle.
    • Midler's redesign was so popular that it becomes much more well-known than her actual design in the manga.
  • Evil Is Cool: DIO, to the point where one of Shadow DIO's supers, where he attacks you with hair spores, is named "Charisma!!"
  • Fountain of Memes: Jotaro and DIO. This was the game where half of DIO's memes originated from, for cripes sake!
  • Fridge Brilliance: It was mentioned on one Jojo Fridge Brilliance page that DIO couldn't use his old vampire techniques (such as blood freezing) in part 3, since his body from the neck down isn't his. However, this game has DIO and Shadow DIO still able to use Space Ripper Stingy Eyes, which makes sense as the head and half of the neck is obviously still DIO's.
    • If you let the timer run out on the continue screen, Daniel D'Arby will turn your character into a poker chip. In the main series, his stand would do this to his target once they felt completely defeated. By allowing yourself to get a Game Over, you are telling him that you are defeated.
  • Fridge Horror: Fighting Bonus Boss Death 13 may make you remember, damage done to Stands is felt by the wielder, right? Then that means you're beating up a baby. An evil, Ambiguously Human baby, sure, but still.
  • Funny Moments: DIO's time over lose animation has him repeatedly backdash away off screen. Combine this with Mariah's Noblewoman's Laugh and...
    • The final fight in Iggy's story mode. Iggy fights DIO and wins, complete with DIO exploding into gore. To reiterate - DIO loses a fight to a dog, not to mention that thanks to Iggy being a Game-Breaker, the fight will be a Curb-Stomp Battle if you know what you're doing.
  • Game-Breaker:
    • Iggy's size makes him difficult to hit, coming up to most character's knees. In particular, this makes him immune to non-low attacks, at least when he's not using his Stand.
    • Petshop is broken enough to be tourney banned, with some advantages including a smaller hitbox than almost the entire cast (only beaten by Iggy, as mentioned above), never needing to block low by default, a hugely enhanced aerial game, and a super cheap multi-icicle shot super that can be chained for an infinite.
    • Jotaro's story mode can be played through with little to no effort by simply backing opponents against the side of the screen and spamming Star Platinum's jabs. That is, until he gets to High DIO.
  • Good Bad Bugs:
    • It's possible to have DIO and Jotaro win a round and then stop time between rounds. This prevents the game from actually recovering the opponent's health until time resumes, so if this is done just right, when the opponent was in the middle of standing back up, the time masters can just do a One-Hit Kill and win a second round for free.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Bits of N'Doul were found in the game's coding that hinted at him once being planned as playable. Then came Eyes of Heaven where he's finally playable.
  • Memetic Molester: Alessi thanks to his Stand turning most of its victims into children.
  • Memetic Mutation: This game was responsible for almost HALF of Jotaro and (especially) DIO's memes.
    • Mudada! MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAAAAAAH!translation  ZA WARUDO! explanation  Toki yo tomare!translation  *throws knives* Soshite toki wa ugokidasu...translation  Rodo rora da!!translation  WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!overall explanation 
  • Most Wonderful Sound: The announcer, thanks to his pleasantly deep voice and amusing pronunciations. Going by his appearance on the mode/select screens, it's implied to be Daniel J'Darby speaking.
    Black und whiiiiiite. FUH-HIIIIIGHT!
  • No Problem with Licensed Games: The game is generally fondly remembered for what it is, between its unique mechanics and the fun nods towards the original manga.
  • Older Than They Think: Of a sorts. This game's English localization was the first to change Vanilla Ice's name to Iced. While the Part 3 OVA that featured Ice was made in 1993, it was not dubbed into English until around the early 2000s along with the newer OVA episodes, long after the game was released.
  • Tear Jerker: Both of Kakyoin's endings, his new version is similar to his death in the Manga, the original one however, shortly after the plane he and Jotaro were riding in takes off, he passes away from his injuries, cue Jotaro saying his name in a rather panicky way.
  • That One Boss: At least in Jotaro's story, the final battle against High DIO is a surprisingly sharp spike in difficulty. While nearly all previous opponents (including regular DIO) could be easily beaten by backing them against a wall and continuously hitting them with Star Platinum's jabs, High DIO's A.I. is incredibly smart and will effectively block and counter most of your attacks while dealing out devastating combos in the blink of an eye. It's very jarring breezing through a slew of easily-broken matches only to be met with an opponent that can actually put up a fight.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Alessi's Stand was used as a way to bring Part 2 Joseph into the game. There was a perfectly good opportunity to see what would happen if he used it on DIO and see if it would have allowed Jonathan (as well as the Part 1 version of DIO) to be playable too.
    • Every character introduced in the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure version doesn't show up in any existing characters' story modes - for example, Iggy doesn't fight Petshop in his story mode, despite the fight being one of Iggy's most noteworthy feats. Justified, however, as none of the added characters had any AI made for them. Eventually averted in the Playstation port's Super Story Mode, which does give them AI and includes fights with them.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Chaka's super move visual effect, which causes the entire background scenery to suffer a Clean Cut.
