What a pain/Gimme a break... (Yare Yare Daze)

You lost for one reason DIO, one simple reason. You pissed me off.
~ Jotaro to a defeated DIO

You're a joke, DIO. And your reality... It's all just a fantasy.
~ Jotaro to a soon defeated Heaven Ascension DIO

Good grief. You truly are the lowest scum in history. What you owe me... CAN NEVER BE PAID BACK WITH MONEY!!!
~ Jotaro to Steely Dan

Possible Opponents


As a young boy growing up in Japan, Jotaro Kujo was a nice but strong kid. As he grew into the age of 17, becoming a delinquent, Jotaro put himself in jail on the account of having an "evil spirit". His grandfather, Joseph Joestar came from New York to inform him that his "evil spirit" is an entity known as a Stand. Joseph reveals this to be connected to the body of their ancestor Jonathan Joestar taken by DIO for his own use, awaking Stands in Jonathan's descendants. This also affected Jotaro's mother Holy Joestar Kujo, whose lack of fighting spirit is calling her Stand to kill her. This forces Jotaro and accompanies his grandfather and four other Stand users; Avdol, Kakyoin, Jean-Pierre Polnareff, & Iggy, to Cairo, Egypt to kill DIO and break his influence on the Joestar line. Since DIO's defeat, Jotaro had taken up the duty of investigating other Stand users and hunting down hostile Stand users such as Anjuro and Akira, cleaning up the last of DIO's followers.

Death Battle Info (Fanon)

Powers & Abilities

  • Intelligence: Jotaro is remarkably calm under pressure, and aware of his environment and capabilities; combining to make him a very reliable fighter.
  • Knowledge: It is implied that Jotaro has accumulated a considerable amount of varied knowledge. At the beginning of Part III, in his cell, in order to understand his Stand, he had collected a number of books on the theme of the paranormal. In Part IV, it is revealed that he specialized in marine biology; and he briefs Josuke skilfully for the task of hunting two Stand-wielding rats.
  • Toughness: Jotaro is naturally confident and intolerant to suggestions that he should defer in any way; backed up by his own strength, as well as that of his Stand.
  • The Joestar family's "Secret Technique": running away, is usually utilized as a last resort. It is used by Jotaro in the series during his fight against Rubber Soul.

Star Platinum

  • Super Strength: Star Platinum possesses immense strength; able to throw a Jeep carrying four men and a girl out of the path of an 18-wheeler with one hand, later pull the same Jeep out of a canyon with only a car as a counter-weight, and destroy multiple car-sized artificial diamonds.
  • Super Speed:  Star Platinum can catch a bullet fired at point-blank range, throw thousands of powerful punches within seconds and is stated to be able move faster than the speed of light.
  • Self-Preservation: Star Platinum possesses the awareness and reaction speed to protect Jotaro in many instances that he himself seems unaware; halting a bullet he experimentally shoots at his own head; protecting him while frozen by Dio's Time Stop, and reviving him from near-death by directly pumping his heart.
  • Precision: Star Platinum is incredibly precise; able by hand to surgically remove an object embedded in a person's skull without ill effect, and catch a bullet between his thumb and forefinger in midair.
  • Enhanced Eyesight: Star Platinum utilizes eagle-like eyesight throughout Stardust Crusaders. By his Stand, Jotaro sees at one point across a desert for four kilometres, as well as identify meaningful details, such as a specific type of fly, in high-resolution images. It can also follow a card shuffle performed by a professional gambler, subsequently recounting the entire new order of the deck.
  • Star Finger: Star Platinum can suddenly and forcefully extend his middle and index fingers to a length of one or two meters for attacks like stabbing a faraway opponent. During its first execution, it seems able to lengthen its entire arm to an extent as well akin to the Zoom Punch technique used by Hamon users.
  • Time Stop: Discovered during Jotaro's climactic battle with Dio, like The World, Star Platinum is able to stop time, with an absolute limit of five seconds. Jotaro describes the execution of this ability as exhausting, and he requires a varying length of rest before he may freeze time again, unlike Dio, whose immortality allows him to stop time with much more ease. Out of disuse, the length of time Jotaro can maintain Time Stop is diminished to one to two seconds during Part 4. Measures of time during Time Stop correspond to normal measures, as shown by Jotaro's unwilling reduction in the duration of Time Stop affected by Made In Heaven.

Star Platinum Over Heaven

  • Has all of the other abilities of the original Star Platinum.
  • Super Speed:  Star Platinum Over Heaven is faster than the normal Star Platinum. It was able to defeat Heaven Ascension DIO who can hit Tusk Act 4 and Gold Experience Requiem, two Stands that can move in stopped time and erased time respectively.
  • Reality Warping in the form of Reality Overwrite: While fighting Heaven Ascension DIO and his Stand The World Over Heaven, Jotaro unlocked a the same ability which upgraded Star Platinum to Star Platinum Over Heaven (though it is never called Star Platinum Over Heaven, it should be). Allows Jotaro to rewrite virtually anything in time. The potential extent of this ability appears to be limitless, as this power can be used to rewrite the existence of anything he wants (except for his Stand's range), steal/absorb souls and use them as slaves, heal himself, resurrect the dead and completely negate almost any ability that the series has to offer (as demonstrated when Heaven Ascension DIO went against the abilities of Tusk Act 4 and Gold Experience Requiem and both of their abilities were nullified).
    • However, this power is eventually revealed to suffer from a major limitation; It can only be initiated through Star Platinum Over Heaven's fists, meaning that the Stand would have to punch something in order to rewrite it.


  • Being the only person that DIO truly feared, Jotaro killed DIO at his most powerful state (At the time).
  • Stopped his own heart to try and get DIO close to him.
  • Star Platinum caught a bullet Jotaro fired at himself at point-blank range between its fingers.

  • Defeated Enyaba's Stand, Justice.
  • Was repeatedly attacked by The World and was sent into a metal sign so hard that he knocked it off of the building and he only fractured three bones.

  • Beat down a fully grown man while de-aged into a kindergarten-age kid without his Stand.
  • Survived being blown up by Sheer Heart Attack, a bomb that can atomise an enemy it comes in contact with (Though Jotaro was placed in a near-death stat because of this).
  • Beat down Yoshikage Kira on two separate occasions, one of those occasions Jotaro was in a near-death state.
  • Killed Heaven Ascension DIO after he absorbed all the souls of every hero in the series and the Corpse Parts.

  • Has been nearly killed by Bug Eaten, Yoshikage Kira and Enrico Pucci.
  • Was killed by Yoshikage Kira's third bomb Bites The Dust (Though due to Bites The Dust's ability, Jotaro wasn't killed a second time which kept him alive).
