There are times when a gentleman has to be courageous and fight, even when his opponent is bigger than he is and he knows he's going to lose!
~ Jonathan Joestar


Jonathan Joestar, nicknamed JoJo, is the first "JoJo" of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and the main protagonist of Part I: Phantom Blood. He discovers the malicious intent that his adopted brother, Dio Brando, had been planning against his family for several years. This leads to the penultimate discovery based on his research of the Stone Mask that Dio had brought upon himself. To counter Dio and his new supernatural forces, he trains in the art of the Ripple to end his brother's path of evil.

Weaknesses: He must maintain a proper breathing rhythm in order to use Hamon. His breathing can be interrupted by outside forces and stop the flow of Hamon.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Sendo Hamon Overdrive
  • Zoom Punch
  • Scarlet Overdrive
  • Underwater Turquoise Blue Overdrive
  • Metal Silver Overdrive
  • Life Magnetism Overdrive
  • Sunlight Yellow Overdrive
  • Clash with Dio
  • Hamon effect on undead.
  • Hamon/Ripple/Sendo: Hamon/the Ripple/Sendo is a form of energy that relies on breathing techniques to replicate the power of the Sun. It can be used to enhance physical attributes, heal wounds, and acts as both an offensive and defensive tool. Due to it's solar connection, it has an advantage over creatures weak to sunlight. Jonathan, through the use of Hamon energy can: increase jumping height, walk on water, strengthen objects and increase their potency, revive plants, bypass and hit targets behind armor and objects, store hamon within organisms like snakes and roses, infuse objects with hamon, mind control, null pain, heal scars, broken bones, wounds and more.
  • Zoom Punch: Jonathan stretches the joints in his arm via Hamon in order to extend his reach launching his fist forward and strike his opponent.
  • Sendo Hamon Overdrive: Hamon releases from Jonathan's arm and into whatever he releases it into. It can be used as both a direct and indirect attack, as it has gone from simply transfering into another living being and traveling from walls and mountainsides to release from a specific point.
    • Scarlet Overdrive: Jonathan creates a ripple of flame onto a select part of his body. It can transfer onto other objects, which can also catch on fire.
    • Underwater Turquoise Blue Overdrive: Jonathan releases a tempest that propels enemies and water away from him. This technique was only used and is likely only to be used under or with water.
    • Overdrive Barrage: Numerous Overdrives are sent at once through consecutive attacks.
    • Metal Silver Overdrive: Jonathan sends a Ripple that transfers through types of metal. This technique was used against Bruford with his sword.
    • Life Magnetism Overdrive: Jonathan either draws life from or gives life to plants. It was used to both draw leaves together like a magnet into the shape of a hang glider (with the aid of Zeppeli) and to revive the wilting flowers of a dead tree.
    • Sunlight Yellow Overdrive: JoJo's signature and most powerful attack. Jonathan unleashes a powerful flurry of Hamon-filled punches, attacking fast enough to create afterimages with his fists.
    • Supreme Deep Pass Overdrive: Used on Jonathan by William Zeppeli. It had transfered all of his life energy into Jonathan, permanently boosting all of his physical abilities beyond that of his own.
  • Hermit Purple#2: DIO, after taking over Jonathan's body, awakened a Stand that was originally Jonathan's. It's completely identical to Joseph Joestar's Hermit Purple, which can produce psychic photography used to track the Joestars, and as such should be capable if performing the feats the original had accomplished.

Others: Not to be confused with Steel Ball Run's Johnny Joestar.
