Jotaro thrives on an offense-oriented playstyle, more on poking the enemy until they budge. Jotaro players are generally known to be very pesky and can push the fight to either side of the field in a short amount of time. This is due to their nature of gameplay prioritizing offense over defense, mostly to take advantage of the strength from his Blazing Fists special.
Due to his Blazing Fists (Stand Off) and ability to attack while Star Platinum performs a move, he is a lot more effective with Stand Off. This, in turn, increases the hits and the damage in comparison to attacks with Stand On.

Near the Canary Islands, a strange coffin is lifted from the bottom of the sea. Some time later, a teenager named Jotaro Kujo locks himself in a Tokyo jail cell, convinced that he has been possessed by an evil spirit. At his mother Holy's request, Jotaro's grandfather Joseph Joestar visits Japan and attempts to coerce him out of his cell. When Jotaro refuses, Joseph asks his friend Muhammad Avdol to remove him by force. After the fight, Joseph explains to Jotaro that the appearance of his "evil spirit", later named Star Platinum, is caused by the Joestar family's enemy DIO, who has reawoken after a hundred years. Secret Factor: So you got me out of the cell? (牢屋の外、してやられたというわけか)

Who Will Be the Judge?! (裁くのは誰だ!? Sabaku no wa Dare da!?)
At his high school, Jotaro comes across an enemy Stand user named Noriaki Kakyoin. Summoning his Stand, Hierophant Green, Kakyoin reveals that he was sent by DIO to eliminate the Joestars. After the fight, Jotaro removes a flesh bud made of DIO's cells from Kakyoin's brain, freeing him of DIO's influence. When Holy's own Stand begins to weaken her, the Joestars and their allies board a plane to Egypt in order to kill DIO. Secret Factor: Ora-ora! My Stand will be the judge! (オラオラ裁くのは俺のスタンドだッー)

A Maritime Trap?! (Adventure) (海路のワナ!? Kairo no Wana!?)
Polnareff tells the Joestar group that he is searching for a man with two right hands, who was responsible for his sister Sherry's killing; suspecting that his target is allied with DIO, Polnareff joins the Joestar group as they board a ship to Singapore. In the middle of the voyage, a little girl is discovered to have stowed onto the ship; the girl jumps overboard to escape the sailors, but is grabbed by the underwater Stand Dark Blue Moon, forcing Jotaro to save her. When the ship's Captain Tennille appears on deck to apprehend the girl, Jotaro tricks him into revealing that he is an impostor and Dark Blue Moon's user. The fake Tennille grabs the girl and pulls her into the water; Jotaro saves her again, but is pulled underwater by Dark Blue Moon's barnacles. Though the Stand creates a whirlpool to trap Jotaro, Star Platinum extends its finger and slices its head. Secret Factor: Seems you're the one who became sashimi. (やっぱりてめーだ刺し身になったのは)

The Empty Ship and the Ape (Mini-Game) (無人船と猿 Mujinsen to Saru)
The group disembarks the now-captainless ship using one of the lifeboats. While at sea, they encounter and board a large freighter. The ship is devoid of life save one orangutan, whom Jotaro suspects to be a Stand user. The battle with the orangutan, Forever, plays out as a whack-a-mole-style shooting game: Forever appears at one of nine spots, and the player must shoot him and any debris he throws to win. Occasionally, the stowaway girl will appear; shooting her or being hit with debris will cause Jotaro to take damage. After the battle, the ship begins to collapse, revealed to be the orangutan's Stand, Strength. The group escapes the ship on the lifeboat they arrived in. Secret Factor: This is a bit heavy for a little girl! (女の子にゃあきつすぎるぜ)

The Man-Eating Temperance (人喰いテンパランス Hitokui Tenperansu)
In the city of Singapore, Kakyoin punches Jotaro and laughs it off as a prank, leading Jotaro to suspect that something is influencing him. In an attempt to wake him up, Jotaro punches Kakyoin, only to discover that Kakyoin's form itself is a Stand ability. The enemy, Rubber Soul, reveals his true form beneath his Stand Yellow Temperance's disguise before further taunting Jotaro with his supposed good looks. After the fight, Jotaro interrogates Rubber Soul, who reveals that four more Stand users are after the group: Death Thirteen, Empress, Hanged Man, and Emperor. Jotaro turns to leave and tell Polnareff, but Rubber Soul attacks from behind; unfazed, Jotaro pummels him and knocks him out. Secret Factor: Rero rero rero rero rero... (レロレロレロレロレロレロ)
Have Rubber Soul perform a taunt.
Passing Towards Death (Adventure) (死への追い越し Shi e no Oikoshi)
On a mountain road to Delhi, a car passes the Joestar group and blocks their way. When the unseen driver of the car signals them to go ahead, the group is nearly hit by a truck. The group pursues the car down a dead-end cliffside path, but the car appears behind them and tries to push their own car off a cliff. Luckily, Kakyoin is able to grab the car's wire-winch, throwing the enemy car off the cliff while saving their own. The car reforms itself and begins driving up the cliff; the driver, ZZ, reveals his car to be a Stand named Wheel of Fortune. The car spills gasoline on Jotaro, which ZZ ignites with an electric spark. Though he seemingly burns to death, Jotaro manages to dig a tunnel and leave his coat to burn as a decoy. Jotaro pummels Wheel of Fortune, knocking ZZ out of his vehicle and revealing him to be a scrawny man with muscular arms. Secret Factor: A road is something you have to carve out yourself. (道というものは自分で切り開くものだ)

The Puppeteering Justice (Mini-Game) (あやつり正義（ジャスティス） Ayatsuri Jasutisu)
The Joestar group arrives at Multan, where they check into a hotel run by an elderly woman. Soon after, Polnareff goes missing. Jotaro confronts the hotel's owner over Polnareff's disappearance; when she refers to him by his real name, Jotaro reveals that he signed the hotel's guest book with a fake name, outing her as an enemy. The hotel owner, Enya Geil, reveals her mist-controlling Stand Justice, which has already possessed the town's inhabitants. The fight with Enya plays out as an altered version of the normal battle system: the player, as Jotaro, must face an endless horde of Justice's zombies. After defeating thirty of her minions, Enya herself will appear and begin attacking with Justice; depleting Enya's health ends the mini-game. After the battle, Jotaro announces his intention to finish off Enya before she can take another breath. Enya attempts to prove him wrong, but finds she cannot exhale; Star Platinum is inhaling her Stand, soon causing her to pass out. Secret Factor: Ora-ora-ora-ora-ora! (おらおらおらおらおらおらあっ)

The Desert Sun (Mini-Game) (砂漠の太陽 Sabaku no Taiyō)
While crossing the desert to Abu Dhabi, the Joestar group realizes that the sun is still up despite their watches showing that night should have fallen. The group is struck with horror at the realization that the sun itself is a Stand, but Jotaro calmly suggests finding the Stand's user. The battle with Sun takes the form of a hidden-object game: a mirrored version of the user's location is shown at the botton-right of the screen, and the player must find that location and throw a rock at it four times to win. If the player attacks the wrong location, Sun will counterattack with rays of light, causing the temperature to increase; if the temperature fills the thermometer at the top of the screen, the player loses. After the battle, Sun dissipates, leaving the Joestar group to ponder the foolishness of its user, Arabia Fats. Secret Factor: Now let's continue to our next destination. (さぁ次の目的地に行きましょう)
End the mini-game within thirty seconds.
Diamond Molars (ダイヤモンドの奥歯 Daiyamondo no Okuba)
After arriving at Jiddah, the group takes a well-deserved coffee break. However, the group soon realizes they are holding six cups instead of five, and Joseph is taken out by a Stand within the extra cup named High Priestess. As the Stand can possess metal objects, the group deduces that the Stand is hiding underground and splits up. Soon after, Jotaro finds the Stand's user, Midler. After the fight, Jotaro narrowly dodges an attack from High Priestess, who claims that its teeth are as hard as diamond; Jotaro proceeds to smash the Stand's teeth, soundly defeating it. Secret Factor: Those teeth were hard, but I knocked them all out. (硬い歯だったがたたき折ってやったぜ)
End the fight with Jotaro's Ora-Ora special move.
The Earth God Geb (Mini-Game) (大地の神ゲブ Daichi no Kami Gebu)
Having finally reached Egypt, the Joestar group meets up with the Speedwagon Foundation at Abu Simbel. The Foundation delivers an ally Stand user: Iggy, a dog who wields the sand-manipulating Stand The Fool. As it departs, the Foundation helicopter suddenly crashes; a few seconds later, Kakyoin is attacked by a water-like Stand, putting him out of commission. The Stand prepares to attack Polnareff, but Jotaro rushes off to find the Stand's user, using Iggy's nose as a compass. The battle with the water Stand, Geb, plays out the same way as in JoJo's Venture: the player must navigate a long stretch of desert to reach the user, N'Doul, who can be defeated in a single hit. Along the way, the player must avoid Geb as it lunges, blocks, and creates pitfall traps. After the battle, Jotaro tries to interrogate N'Doul about DIO, but N'Doul kills himself with his own Stand to avoid betraying him. Secret Factor: He's not moving... He's keeping still. (動いていないじっとしているぞ)
End the mini-game with Jotaro's Puttsun Ora super move.
Be Careful When Shaving (ヒゲ剃りに御用心 Higesori ni Goyōjin)
Jotaro and Polnareff visit a barber named Khan, Polnareff still carrying Chaka's sword. Polnareff gives Khan the sword and asks it to place it down somewhere; upon unsheathing the sword, the barber announces himself to be Anubis and attacks. After the fight, the barber praises Jotaro's Star Platinum before passing out, and the two heroes realize the sword can possess people. Secret Factor: Impossible... He caught the blade! (まさか・・・白刃取りをやるとは)
Polnareff tries to pick up the unsheathed Anubis, but the blade possesses him as well. After the fight, Jotaro shatters the sword, waking Polnareff from its spell. The largest shard of the sword possesses a young boy, who tries to throw the shard at Jotaro; however, the boy trips on Iggy and misses, accidentally throwing Anubis into a river. Secret Factor: But now I've learned that, too. (しかしそれももう覚えた)
Have Anubis Dual-Wielding Polnareff counter Jotaro's Ora-Ora special move or Puttsun Ora super move.
The Soul-Stealing Gamble (Mini-Game) (魂を奪うギャンブル Tamashī o Ubau Gyanburu)
The Joestar group travels to Giza, where a gambler named Daniel J. D'Arby challenges Polnareff to see which of two pieces of meat a cat will eat first. Polnareff guesses incorrectly, and D'Arby takes his soul with his Stand Osiris, incidentally revealing that the cat is his. In order to save Polnareff, Joseph bets his soul on a game involving dropping coins in a glass of water; whoever drops the coin that makes it spill loses. D'Arby cheats at the game and drops more coins than the glass should handle, causing Joseph to mentally surrender and forfeit his soul. Fed up with D'Arby's antics, Jotaro challenges the gambler to his favorite game, poker. Should the player choose to bluff, Jotaro chooses not to look at his cards before betting Avdol's soul, as well as his mother's. D'Arby, unable to know if Star Platinum looked at or swapped his cards, goes insane under the pressure and folds, putting him out of commission. Secret Factor: I'd have been horrified if I knew. (もし知っていたらゾッとしたぜ)
Win either the cat or coin mini-game, or win the poker mini-game by bluffing.
A Video Game of Souls (Adventure) (魂のTVゲーム Tamashī no Tī Vī Gēmu)
The three abducted heroes find themselves on a strange island with Telence. At Telence's request, Kakyoin steps up to challenge the younger D'Arby brother in the racing game F-Mega. Both of their cars take off at the same speed, and manage to stay neck-in-neck through the first six curves. D'Arby's car gains the lead in an acceleration tunnel, but Kakyoin uses his car's energy to knock D'Arby off the track... onto a farther section of the course. Kakyoin internally admits defeat, and Telence's Stand Atum removes his soul. After Telence warns the Joestars that killing him means killing Kakyoin, Jotaro challenges D'Arby to a game of Oh! That's A Baseball!. Though Jotaro scores four home runs in his first inning at-bat, D'Arby scores three consecutive home runs, leading Jotaro and Joseph to suspect Atum can read minds. To counter this ability, Jotaro begins announcing the direction of his pitches in advance. Telence confirms Jotaro's forecasts are accurate, but is completely dumbfounded when the pitches change direction regardless. In his shock, Telence releases his grip on Kakyoin's soul. After learning that Joseph had been using Hermit Purple to play the game for Jotaro, Telence begs for forgiveness; reading Jotaro's mind, he realizes that the answer is a firm "Ora-Ora". Secret Factor: Is it the "Ora-Ora" thing, perhaps?! (もしかしてオラオラですかーッ！？)
Complete the stage without missing a single quick-time event.
Regardless of whether the player chose Jotaro or Polnareff, the group reunites soon after Vanilla Ice's defeat, with Kakyoin bringing a weak vampire named Nukesaku as a guide. The group reaches DIO's coffin and asks Nukesaku to open it, only for Nukesaku himself to be revealed inside. The heroes, mortified, quickly escape the mansion; with the sun now setting, however, DIO is prepared to hunt them down. Joseph and Kakyoin decide to retreat, but Polnareff goes off alone to face DIO head-on; Jotaro follows Polnareff, stating that the group will be attacking DIO from both sides.

Unfazed, Jotaro complains about his pants' ripped fabric. After the fight, Jotaro is seemingly killed. Wary of the Joestars' luck, DIO grabs a signpost and moves to cut off his head. Secret Factor: Comparing the speed of our rushes? (突き（ラッシュ）の速さ比べか)
Initiate a Blazing Fists Match with Jotaro's Ora-Ora special move or Puttsun Ora super move.
After confirming that Jotaro has no heartbeat, DIO prepares to cut off his head. Suddenly, Star Platinum attacks and Jotaro gets up, having stopped his own heartbeat. DIO, wounded by the attack, tries to escape, but Jotaro pummels him and sends him flying. However, DIO is thrown to the very same place he was trying to escape toward: the resting place of Joseph Joestar's body. Draining Joseph's blood, an invigorated DIO prepares to end the battle once and for all. Secret Factor: I stopped time... (おれが時を止めた・・・)
Have DIO stop time, then end the fight within stopped time by using Jotaro's Star Platinum The World super move.
