4. Jonathan Joestar
Jonathan Joestar is the first JoJo and appears for the first time in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part. 1 Phantom Blood and Part. 2 Stardust Crusaders released for the first time in Japan in 1987.
Jonathan is the main hero of this JoJo Part. 1 and is considered by the fans like one of the best JoJo. Nicknamed "JoJo" by those close to him because of the first two syllables of his name and surname, a logic that will be perpetuated throughout the work of Hirohiko Araki.
Jonathan Joestar is the son of a rich English lord named George Joestar and a mother who died in a car accident that George survived with the help of a thief named Dario Brando. After Dario's death, George decides to adopt his son, Dio Brando, and raise him in his own home.
Unfortunately for him, Dio has inherited a narcissistic personality disorder and wants only one thing, to become the sole heir to the Joestar fortune. Although JoJo seeks to be friends with him, Dio only does him harm by stealing all his friends for example or by throwing his faithful dog, Danny, into an incinerator. (Not cool Dio...).
In this complicated situation, Jonathan finally finds comfort with a young girl named Erina Pendleton, that he falls in love with. However, Dio, who is obsessed with JoJo's unhappiness, decides to ruin his happiness once again by stealing Erina's first kiss. After that, feeling ashamed, Erina becomes unable to look JoJo in the eyes, driving him crazy with grief.
Later, Dio discovers a mysterious Aztec stone mask that reacts automatically as soon as blood is spilled on it and George Joestar falls seriously ill. Following this tragedy, JoJo discovers in a letter that Dario had died of the same illness, and infers that Dio used poison on George to try to kill him and recover their fortune.
The rest of the season will make us discover that the mask found by Dio is in fact an ancient relic capable of transforming his owner in Vampire which will lead to the famous fight JoJo vs Dio in episode 8 of Phantom Blood and to Dio's "death".
3. Giorno Giovanna
Giorno Giovanna is the fifth JoJo and appears for the first time in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part. 5 Golden Wind released for the first time in Japan in 1995.
Giorno is the son of Dio Brando conceived with the body of Jonathan Joestar. His goal is to join the Passione gang in order to climb its hiercharchy and take control of it to put an end to drug trafficking.
Having been created with the body of a descendant of the Joestar family, Giorno is a stand user and masters Gold Experience, a powerful stand that allows him to create life from inanimate objects and turn an attack against his assailant when he attacks them.
Moreover, when in contact with a person, Gold Experience can disrupt the reflexes of his enemies to take advantage of them, heal individuals and also detect the vital signs of a living being.
His stand will evolve later in the series into "Gold Experience Requiem" which will allow him to be able to cancel any action of an individual, such as his attacks or his Stands. Finally, when someone is hit by GER, he falls into a death loop that is impossible to get out of.
2. Joseph Joestar
Joseph Joestar is the second JoJo and appears for the first time in the second story arc of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Battle Tendency released for the first time in Japan in 1997.
Joseph Joestar is the grandson of Jonathan Joestar and the son of George Joestar II, an aviator in the English army assassinated by one of his superiors on behalf of Dio Brando. He is raised by his grandmother, Erina Joestar and Speedwagon.
Since his childhood, Joseph has developed a rude and rebellious attitude towards his very gentlemanly English grandfather. Dispute this line of character, he has a noble heart and proves it when he claims to have given his wallet to Smokey Brown, a young thief, to save him from being beaten by police officers in New York (just as his great-grandfather, Lord Joestar, did in favor of Dario Brando).
Like his grandfather, he is also a stand user and masters the Hermit Purple stand which, although very weak physically, allows him to possess powerful divination abilities, allowing him to divine future events and materialize any type of information, such as images, locations or even thoughts.
Although he is the protagonist of his own arc, Joseph's popularity allowed him to be considered as the best Joestar for a long time and to reappear in Stardust Crusaders and Diamond Is Unbreakable alongside Jôtarô Kûjô and Jôsuke Higashikata.
1. Jôtarô Kûjô
Jôtarô Kûjô is the third JoJo and appears for the first time as the main character of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part. 3 Stardust Crusaders released for the first time in Japan in 1989.
Jotaro is a 17-year-old high school student who lives with his mother, Holy Joestar, and Joseph Joestar, his grandfather. Despite the fact that he is a taciturn and rebellious boy, Jotaro shows a big heart and an unfailing sense of justice. However, his various acts of rebellion will often lead him to prison.
While locked in a cell, his grandfather finds Jotaro in a state of trance as if he were possessed by a spirit. It is then that Jotaro learns that he possesses a Stand, a psychic double represented in the form of an astral body that all the descendants of the Joestar lineage possess.
However, the new appearance of his Stand also means bad news. Dio Brando, the hereditary enemy of the Joestar family, has awakened from the dead and is the reason for the awakening of all the stands of the Joestar family.
Jotaro therefore has a stand, Star Platinum, a humanoid with a violent personality, but with very powerful hand-to-hand combat capabilities. He will later master the ability to stop time, the famous Time Stop, which will allow him to become even more fearsome in combat.
Unfortunately for her, Holy has a soul far too kind to support her stand and falls seriously ill. So Jotaro has no choice but to go to Egypt to kill DIO and annihilate the vampire army for good who have the order to slaughter the last survivors of the Joestar lineage. He will be helped in his quest by other secondary characters such as Polnareff, Iggy or Mohammed Avdol, a fortune teller from Cairo.
All this will lead him to confront several enemies, until the final boss, Dio Brando, calling himself DIO at the moment. The fight Jotaro vs Dio in episode 46 of Stardust Crusaders is one of the most popular episodes of the anime JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and remains a reference in terms of achievement and perfectionism.
