Joseph Joestar ★ Video Games
A summary of Joseph Joestar's history and movesets in video games.
Famicom Jump (FC)
Joseph makes his gaming debut as a playable character on the NES title as his young self (during Battle Tendency), along with other Jump Heroes (such as Goku from Dragon Ball, Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star and Seiya from Saint Seiya).
Famicom Jump II (FC)
Joseph returns as his older appearance (Stardust Crusaders) in the sequel. However, he takes on a lesser role as a non-playable character (Jotaro is the representative hero from JJBA franchise instead). He appears only as support character, where the player can talk to him in order to obtain information.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (SFC)
Joseph is one of the 6 main characters to appear in the SNES RPG game, along with Jotaro, Kakyoin, Polnareff, Avdol and Iggy, they must fight all the enemies and situations they faced in the manga story to find and terminate DIO.
Joseph makes a brief appearance in the game's introduction as an image behind Giorno (along with Jotaro, Josuke and Jonathan), after Koichi says that Giorno had a similar kindness to the Joestar bloodline and seeing Giorno eager to avenge the janitor killed by Black Sabbath.
Jump Super Stars (DS)
Joseph appears as Jotaro's 3-block support koma. He uses Hermit Purple to draw an enemy towards him, creating a opening for attack.
Jump Ultimate Stars (DS)
Although he's not playable he can be used as a support and help character in the game. In his 2 Koma support, Joseph Part 2 uses his special ability to predict the opponents line, inflicting paralysis effect on the enemy .
His 3 Koma support, now in his Part 3 appearance, he uses his stand, Hermit Purple, to grab the opponent and bring him near the player, creating a chance to attack. His help Koma gives the character the ability to see invisible characters.
Joseph also serves as an ally boost to Yoh (from Shaman King), by asking if he's a new stand user (since Shaman King character's can also use "spirits" to fight) and Franky (from One Piece), by asking if he doesn't burp after so much cola (a reference to Joseph's first appearance, where he used a cola soda to shoot an officer).
