|~ Soft & Wet's battle cry|
Josuke Higashikata, or Gappy to differentiate him with his alternate universe counterpart, is eighth "JoJo" in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and the main protagonist of Part VIII: JoJolion. He wakes up one day with no memory under the Wall Eyes in Morioh. He is adopted into the Higashikata household and later finds that he is the fusion of Yoshikage Kira and Josefumi Kujo. He intends to search for the Rokakaka that caused his fusion and save Kira's dying mother with its mysterious abilities.

Tier: 9-B. At least 8-B with Soft & Wet.
Name: Josuke Higashikata (Adoptive), originally Josefumi Kujo
Origin: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (Part VIII: JoJolion)
Age: 19 (the same age as Josefumi)
Classification: Human, Fusion, Stand User
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Adept Hand to Hand combat skills, Soft & Wet can "steal" a property from another object and manipulate bubbles to the point of morphing them out of water.
Attack Potency: Wall level (Physically, should be comparable to Josefumi. Had put the A. Phex Brothers into gibs). At least City Block level+ with Soft & Wet (Killed Damo, a victim of Sheer Heart Attack, in one hit. Damaged a rock Yotsuyu).
Lifting Strength: Peak Human. Unknown with Soft & Wet.
Striking Strength: Wall Class. At least City Block Class+ with Soft & Wet.
Durability: Wall level. At least City Block level+ with Soft & Wet.
Range: A few meters with Soft & Wet, higher with bubbles.
Stamina: Very High
Standard Equipment: Soft & Wet
Intelligence: Is quite high considering that he can use his complicated stand effectively and is a great strategist. Is also very knowlegeble on just about anything but knowing his history (is starting to slowly know more about this). Can accurately calculate/measure objects based on sight.
Weaknesses: Any damage taken by Soft & Wet will reflect back onto Gappy. Soft & Wet's plundering cannot affect Gappy himself. Soft & Wet's bubbles must make contact with an object in order to "steal" something from it. Soft & Wet's stealing properties are only limited to physical properties, and cannot steal things such as time or one's soul.
- Soft & Wet: Soft & Wet is a blue (or yellow depending on the source), humanoid Stand with a mechanical appearance. It attacks in conjunction with melee attacks and the use of its bubbles. It is a fusion of Josefumi's original Soft & Wet and Kira's Killer Queen.
- Plundering: Soft & Wet's main ability lies within its bubbles. If a bubble pops near an object, it can "steal" a property from that object. It can take away sight, sound, scent, physical properties, fluids or gases inside an object, friction, moisture, and potentially much more. He can also plunder only a partial amount of what he wants to take.
- Bubble Manipulation: The bubbles of Soft & Wet can combine for offensive properties, whether to enter one's skin and pop to cause bleeding, or to morph many bubbles into one, giant bubble that can trap opponents inside the bubble. Said bubbles can group together to perform small tasks such as retrieving items or lifting a person by inserting bubbles inside of them. Soft & Wet can also form bubbles out of water, as seen when Josuke formed a bubble to shield himself from infected blood by cutting a filled water bottle open. There are no limits to how many bubbles Gappy can send.
- Explosive Bubbles: This variant of Kira's original ability was seemingly unlocked during Josuke's fight with Yotsuyu Yagiyama. Upon contact or detonation once sent, these bubbles will explode. Any objects that are within the vicinty of the explosion will be damaged. The explosions are not visible or are activated similarly to an actual explosion, however.
Note: Not to be confused with his alternate universe counterpart from Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable.
