Main article: Name Variants

Crunchyroll lightly censors the episodes of the anime, and mainly changes the script of the subtitles and episode titles. This is done to hide several name that in the original version refer to music bands albums and songs. Most of them are carried over from the games JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven (e.g. Gold Experience to Golden Wind or Crazy Diamond to Shining Diamond), though there are some instances where Crunchyroll adapted a new name (e.g. Black Sabbath to Shadow Sabbath), or name changes used in previous media isn't used at all (e.g. Jean Pierre Polnareff's name being unchanged). The voices in Japanese are not changed. Some shots in specific episodes are altered so that legally troubling names are not seen written in the episodes.

Otherwise, the Crunchyroll broadcast uses the censored TV versions of the episodes due to its simulcast. Thus, the most gory shots of the series are darkened, as well as specific details such as Jotaro's underage smoking. However, nudity is not censored.

Stardust Crusaders

The "Oingo Boingo" part of the title that's seen on Tohth was censored and removed entirely; however, there are some scenes where it is left unchanged.
