Phantom Blood

References in Phantom Blood

Battle Tendency

References in Battle Tendency

    • The cave in which Santana is discovered resembles the interior of the derelict spacecraft on LV-426 from the movie Aliens.
    • The scene in which Joseph brands Caesar's bandana prior to fighting Wammu is a nod to a scene from Rambo: First Blood Part II in which the titular character dons a piece from his love interest's dress as a headpiece before charging towards Soviet and Vietcong soldiers sent after him
      • In the JoJoveller re-release of Battle Tendency, Araki mentions that Joseph is partially inspired by Sylvester Stallone, commenting that: "To put it simply, Joseph is more of a musclebound B.T. I put some Stallone into B.T. and added some cheerfulnes for good measure to make him more of a jolly fellow"

    • Joseph is shown reading a Superman comic when he and Speedwagon are attacked by a group of hijackers.[12]
      • In the anime version of the hijacking scene, Joseph is reading a Baoh the Visitor manga instead of a Superman comic, presumably to avoid legal issues with DC Comics. However, the scene still references Superman in a more subtle way, as the Baoh comic's cover is based on that of Superman #1.
    • Araki's previous creation Cool Shock B.T. is listed as an inspiration towards Joseph's character, with Araki envisioning the character as a shonen manga character that uses the playbooks of a swindler to win using cunning and logic.

    • The design for Rudol von Stroheim, particularly his hairstyle and monocle-styled lens, is inspired by an illustration made by fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez for Italian luxury brand Missoni.

    • Chapter 49 is named after Master of the Game, a 1982 novel by Sidney Sheldon. The story spans four generations of the McGregor/Blackwell family, similar to the Joestar Family. Hirohiko Araki mentions reading the novel during the early chapters of Part 1. The novel is also used again for Episode 11 of the TV Anime.
    • The minor character Bruto appears to be a direct expy of the character Bluto from the series Popeye.
    • Sun Tzu's military treatise The Art of War is referred to by both Joseph and Esidisi during their battle.
