Born the son of George Joestar II and Lisa Lisa, Joseph Joestar would be a dead-ringer of his grandfather Jonathan Joestar were it not for their differing personalities. But like his grandfather, Joesph cared for his loved ones. In the 1930s, when he heard rumors of the death of his family's friend Speedwagon, Joseph ended up having his own bizarre adventure when he faces the mysterious Pillar Men and their leader Kars. Joseph ends up having one final bizarre adventure in the 1980s, helping his grandson Jotaro Kujo put an end to his grandfather's nemesis, Dio Brando.

Powers & Abilities[]

  • Hamon Hair Attack: Joseph infuses his Hamon into strands of hair to make them hard enough to block incoming projectiles. He used it to block bullets fired by Santana after ripping Stroheim's hair off.
  • Overdrive: Much like any other overdrive, the technique sends a large pulse of Hamon through an object. During his fight with Esidisi, Joseph used it to send the Hamon through the thread of his hat and onto Esidisi's being.
  • Rebuff Overdrive: Joseph charges Hamon into his elbows and delivers a powerful strike.
  • Zoom Punch: Similar to his grandfather's move, Joseph uses Hamon to momentarily dislocate his arm and extend it to strike opponents at a longer range.
  • Hamon Overdrive: Joseph channels the Hamon into his arm and does a powerful chop attack. This slowly transfers the Hamon blast through the point hit, making it advance until blowing up. Joseph used it against Kars to cut off his sabre and blow his arm.
  • Near-Death Survival Technique: After he lit his scarf on fire, Joseph told Kars that he was putting his life in danger so he would be pushed beyond his own limits to find a new technique before the flame reached him. This was actually part of a plan to trick Kars, who would be too distracted to notice Joseph's plan to save Lisa Lisa.
  • Hamon Beat: Joseph charges his hand with Hamon and strikes his opponent with a chop. This attack is not capable of harming Joseph himself even if he directs it to himself, as the Hamon used is his own.
  • Clacker Volley: Joseph chucks the clackers into his opponent's direction. This can be done a number of ways, but to produce the best effect, he can hide them behind his back. From there, he can slingshot them from his back at the enemy from all directions.
  • Clacker Boomerang: Joseph chucks both pairs of clackers into a beam or pillar behind the opponent. This is in order to fool them into assuming he missed them when using Clacker Volley. One is thrown into the partition, causing one side of it to be lodged in place. The other side grabs onto the 2nd pair of clackers, and essentially flings them back towards the opponent from behind, much like a boomerang works.
  • He used a Tommy gun to shoot Straizo and then connected a grenade to his scarf, the pin of which was attached by strings to the pins of several other grenades on his back.
  • He used Hamon to pop the tops off of a cola bottle against a corrupt police officer and two tequila bottles against two Nazi soldiers as high-speed projectiles.
  • He used the yarn of a wool hat (Which is highly conductive of Hamon) to form a net underneath the spike-filled arena against Esidisi.
  • He wielded a large sledgehammer in the chariot race against Wamuu. He also used a heavy crossbow to fire an iron ball at the wall of the arena where it spun around the entire wall and hit Wamuu from behind.
  • The Joestar Family's "Secret Technique": Usually utilized as a last resort, Joseph invented this move to use when battling the enemy seemed hopeless. In reality, it was actually used to stall time in order for Joseph to formulate a plan. The secret technique is running away.


  • Hermit Purple: Joseph's Stand that manifests itself as a tangle of thorny vines, which Joseph can wield as both a weapon and a defense, as well as channel Hamon through the vines. He can use the vines to ensnare enemies or grab objects from a distance and can be used as a rope to pull his body out of danger. Joseph has had this Stand since he was young, however, he has come to know of its existence when he was an old man. (NOTE: The Hermit card primarily gives a meaning of solitude, introspective, or soul-searching, which could symbolize Joseph's lifelong journey. It also carries a more direct meaning of teaching or advising, which is Joseph's main role in Part III).
  • Divination: Hermit Purple's main ability is to divine information. By using any object or material in conjunction with Hermit Purple, Joseph Joestar can display any information he wishes to see. To date, he has used Hermit Purple to:
    • Produce psychic photographs by destroying a camera. The broken camera then produces a photograph which will reveal the information as it is in that moment of time, such as a person in their current situation.
    • Produce live psychic videos on a television. It can either randomly display different TV channels to formulate a coherent sentence which will show a person's thought or film a place, even the most improbable ones such as the interior of Joseph's brain.
    • Conjure a map out of dust on an unpaved road, with precision on the location of the desired item.
  • Ripple Transmission: Joseph has shown the ability to transmit the Ripple through Hermit Purple as an extension of his body. Joseph has used this property of Hermit Purple to attack DIO or prevent him from touching him by wrapping himself in it.


  • Defeated Straizo, who is comparable to Dio, without any training or fighting experience against Vampires.
  • Defeated all 4 Pillar Men.
    • Defeated Santana without any training, Santana is a lot stronger than both Straizo and Dio.
    • Outsmarted the likes of Esidisi, who was smart enough to trick Joseph several times and has been to China during the lifetime of the famous strategist Sun Tzu.

    • Managed to send Kars drifting into deep space.
  • Dodged a beam of light shot from the Red Stone of Aja.

  • Has extreme luck and strategy on his side, uses anything around him as an advantage planned or not
  • Grew to be the oldest JoJo alive, living up to 1999 - Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable (Possibly until 2011 - Part 6: Stone Ocean).
  • Survived 4 plane crashes in his lifetime (Two in his youth: 14-18 and two in his elder years: 67).
  • Survived being drained of blood by DIO, and immediately pretended to be possessed by DIO once Jotaro managed to revive him.

  • Despite his clackers being his signature weapon, they rarely do anything.
  • Hamon is less effective against living beings.
  • Incredibly hotheaded, impetuous, and confrontational.
  • Not very serious or focused.

  • Was nearly killed by DIO.
  • Became senile some time before Part 4.
