This is a list of unnamed characters found in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series. These characters played minor but varying roles throughout the storyline. Most of the titles from earlier parts were translated from the encyclopedia found in JoJo6251.
Throughout the entirety of the series, a disembodied narrator comments on the events of the series, providing extra information about the characters, their past and state of mind, as well as giving context for the plot, for instance describing the era or the place the characters find themselves in.
A young woman whom the Aztec Chief and his cult bound on an altar as a sacrifice in a ritual. When the chief plunges a dagger into her chest, her blood splatters all over his mask, activating the mask and turning him into a vampire.
Like the Aztec Chief, the maiden is shown in the 1993 OVA. Although she doesn't appear in the 2012 anime, the mural in the Phantom Blood anime's ending depicts her sacrifice.
A cannibalistic cult that existed during the 12-16th century, led by their chieftain. They cheer on as the chieftain sacrifices a young woman on an altar for her blood. After his Stone Mask is soaked in her blood and he becomes a vampire, the chieftain drains the blood of one of his cult members after they consent. At some point, this tribe disappears from history for unknown reasons, leaving only ruins in their wake.
A woman that appears during the flashback of George Joestar's carriage accident. Dario Brando says that she was a woman he met in a bar. She notices the dead woman and the baby inside the carriage and informs Dario. She is reluctant to go along with Dario's moneymaking schemes of stealing from the victims of the accident, but is soon persuaded. She would later testify to the inspector against Dario.
A man that appears during the flashback of George Joestar's carriage accident. He was driving George and Mary in their carriage when at some point the carriage slipped off the cliff due to the rain. He was killed in the accident.
Little is known about her. She was a poor woman married to Dario Brando. Dio blames her untimely death on his father for making her suffer and "working her to death," though he disdained her as well for devoting herself to such a man. The year of her death was between 1867 and 1880.
A pair of youths who bully Erina Pendleton, with one of them stealing her doll before Jonathan Joestar intervenes. The two recognize Jonathan as a Joestar and proceed to beat him up before walking off. The two later appear as associates of young Dio Brando and witness to him forcefully kissing Erina. One of them expresses an admiration for Dio's bold move.

The bullies appear as enemies in the first fight of the Phantom Blood PS2 game, facing off against a young Jonathan. In addition, they are playable for two fights in Extra Battle Mode.
The announcer of the local boxing ring. Jonathan Joestar was originally going to fight the champion Mark Watkin but the announcer declares there's a change in plans and the new challenger is Dio Brando. The announcer thinks that boxing will be a good way to get to know Dio's personality as they know nothing about him. He explains that boxing is no mere child's game, but Dio accepts the challenge and wagers his entire monthly allowance from George Joestar, surprising the announcer. He explains the rules before the match finally begins.
The former friends of Jonathan Joestar. Jonathan spots them having fun while he's up on a tree and he calls them to come up and smoke a pipe with him. They leer at him spitefully, mentioning to each other that some weirdo is looking at them and that they should head the other way because the place is dangerous since Jonathan would snitch on them. Jonathan jumps down from the tree and punches one of them, but the larger kid knocks Jonathan on the back of his head. After they leave, Jonathan realizes that Dio must be spreading lies about him.
A butler of the Joestar Family. He works in the Joestar Mansion taking care of George, Jonathan, and Dio. One day, while he is taking out the trash, he notices a wooden box inside the incinerator and figures one of the maids left it there. He turns on the incinerator until he hears a loud noise from inside the door. Realizing his mistake, he immediately opens the door, and Danny bursts out completely on fire. The butler notices that someone had tied together Danny's maws with wire so he wouldn't be able to bark or bite free. Guilt-ridden, he apologizes to Jonathan and tries to console him as Danny is buried. In the anime, his feelings of guilt are removed, as he is replaced with another caretaker during Danny's funeral scene.
The butler later appears to bring George Joestar tea, as well as his medicine afterwards. Dio offers to bring the medicine up to George instead, but Jonathan confronts him asking whether he's poisoned it. Jonathan soon declares that George should only accept medicine from a few trusted doctors that Jonathan brought. This causes the butler to feel ashamed, crying that Jonathan doesn't trust him and the other caretakers to nurse George to good health. George calms down the butler, saying that he doesn't know his son's reasons, but he trusts him and they should follow his wish.
At some point in Wang Chan's life, he encountered a man in China with three moles on one of his ears. The man lived a harsh life but he lived to the age of 183. When a young Dio Brando visited his shop in Ogre Street to buy poison, Wang Chan points out the three moles on Dio's left ear and tells Dio of the man he encountered with the same kind of birthmark, implying the good fortune Dio would have.
Worried that Dio will try poisoning George Joestar again, Jonathan brings these doctors to his father's room and declares that he should only accept treatment from these four doctors and no one else.
After Jonathan leaves to Ogre Street, one of the doctors mentions that JoJo has grown into a reliable young man, having been somewhat unreliable when he was younger. He also states that Jonathan's features have changed him well. George mentions that he would often get more angry at Jonathan than necessary, and that the discipline was to his benefit. This scene is omitted from the anime.
After Jonathan Joestar discovers that Dio poisoned his father and sets off to find a cure, Dio becomes paranoid and wanders through the streets whilst drinking. He eventually bumps into two tramps and picks a fight with them. Dio decides to use one of them as a live test subject for the Stone Mask, believing it to be an instrument of torture and murder. He then forces one of the vagrants to put on the mask while stabbing his partner in the throat. The mask, now soaked in blood, turns the man into a vampire. He attacks Dio and becomes younger while absorbing Dio's blood, but disintegrates after being caught in the sunlight.
The vampire vagrant is fought during Dio Mode in the Phantom Blood PS2 game.
One of the police officers is a playable character during one fight in the Extra Battle Mode of the Phantom Blood PS2 game. In addition, two police officers fight alongside Jonathan and Father Styx during the final battle of Dio Mode.
A policeman at the Joestar Mansion who is killed by Dio Brando. Dio impales his fingers through the man's helmet, piercing his head. After draining him completely of his blood, the corpse comes to life desiring blood, becoming the first zombie created by Dio. The zombie attempts to drink Speedwagon's blood and grabs his face, but his meal is interrupted by Jonathan, who uses a spear to decapitate him. Despite him being a monster, Jonathan feels pain from killing the man and asks for strength from his late father.

The zombified policeman is fought by Jonathan during Chapter 06 of the Phantom Blood PS2 game, and is also a playable character for one fight in Extra Battle Mode.
A man who travels with Robert E. O. Speedwagon, Tattoo, and the Kempo Fighter in a steam car to visit an injured Jonathan Joestar after his battle with Dio Brando. He is presumably one of Speedwagon's friends from Ogre Street, although he was not featured in those chapters. He is distinguished by his hat and beaded necklace, which both have feathers attached to them. He holds onto a cane for Speedwagon, who has difficulty walking due to his wounds.
The man later appears with Tattoo, Kempo Fighter, Poco, Poco's sister, Straizo, and Tonpetty to see Jonathan and Erina before they board their ship to America. He is omitted from the anime.
The man returns to see Jonathan and Erina off on their journey
With the rest of Jonathan's friends in the PS2 game
The father of Erina Pendleton is a doctor who, in 1881, had to move to India for his work and brought Erina with him. They had moved back to England seven years later, with his daughter now working at his hospital as a nurse. By some chance, the hospital he owns was the same one Jonathan Joestar was staying in. This chance occurrence allowed Jonathan and Erina to reunite since their childhood.
A woman in Whitechapel, London. In her only appearance, she is out late at night, accompanied by a man. Realizing how late it is, she urges that the two of them hurry home. However, the man says that it's still early and they should go somewhere else. She refuses, worried that Jack the Ripper will appear, having been in many of the recent newspapers. Smirking, her date reveals that she shouldn't be terrified: she has been talking to Jack the Ripper the whole time. Stunned when seeing his scalpel, she is decapitated before she can react.
In the anime, her dialogue is omitted and only her scream and a glimpse of her body on the ground is shown.
Two old women that are residents of Windknight's Lot. The first woman asks her companion if she heard that someone moved into the castle on top of the hill. The other woman confirms she did, commentating that sickly folk always go there to recover. The same woman then changes the topic to ask the first woman if she had heard that Harry's daughter ran away from home. The first woman confirms she did hear of that, mocking it up to something young people are doing. They are omitted from the anime.
She is a resident of Windknight's Lot and is the daughter of Harry. At some point she ran away from home shortly before Dio's arrival in town. She is possibly one of the women Dio and Jack the Ripper killed to suck blood. She is not mentioned in the anime.
A fisherman that Will A. Zeppeli met on the Caribbean when he was young. The ocean where he lived was a deadly trap, with fearsome sharks over ten meters tall that killed several men from his village. When the man went out to fish, the sharks attacked his small boat, causing him to slip and fall into the water. To save himself, he cut off his leg with the blade of his harpoon. However, instead of escaping, he called a shark to him with the blood of his wound. As the shark approached him, he stabbed it in the head with the blade of his harpoon. His victory resulted in him becoming a hero of the village, and he lived out his life in happiness. Zeppeli refers to his bravery as the birth of a viking.
He is omitted from the anime, with only Zeppeli's dialogue about vikings remaining.
After Poco is hypnotized by Dio to lure Jonathan, Zeppeli, and Speedwagon to the graveyard of Windknight's Lot, they are attacked by several zombie knights who appear out of the ground. Zeppeli uses his own version of Sunlight Yellow Overdrive to karate chop one of them in the face, simultaneously killing three more when the body is sent flying into the zombies behind it. Speedwagon crushes one's head using his sledgehammer, and Jonathan decapitates another with a Zoom Punch.
After Bruford and Tarkus are resurrected, one of the zombies attempts to attack Jonathan from behind, exclaiming that he loves how cartilage pops when it is bitten. However, Bruford slices off the zombie's nose with a single finger.
In the anime, Speedwagon killing one of them with his sledgehammer is omitted.
An executioner working for Elizabeth I. Before executing Tarkus and Bruford, he gives them a "present": pointing to Mary Stuart's decapitated head on the ground, he boasts about being the one to kill her. He mentions that the woman imprisoned in the tower was just an impersonator to trick the knights, since letting her live would risk the chance of a rebellion. Enraged, Bruford and Tarkus scream and curse Elizabeth and all her descendants. Rigid from anger, Tarkus breaks several axes of the executioners with the flesh of his thick neck before fully giving way. As Bruford died, his long hair supposedly wrapped around the leg of the executioner tightly enough to dig into his flesh.
Two adult bullies of Poco drag him back to the graveyard in Windknight's Lot after he tells them he saw ghosts of dead knights. One of them, a bald man, says he won't be fooled anymore; he believed Poco when he was told that rabbit droppings were good for stomach aches. His friend threatens to tie Poco up and have him swing over the graveyard by a rope. As Poco cries out that they'll kill him, the bald man tells him to shut up and punches him. As they laugh at how scared he is, one of them steps on something elastic and recognizes a face. Frightened at the mangled faces of corpses mashed together, they realize Poco was telling the truth. They are immediately greeted by Tarkus and flee, leaving Poco to die. Jonathan saves Poco, but Tarkus grabs the two bullies by their feet, crushes them with his grip, and wrings them together until their flesh comes off, drinking their blood as it lands in his mouth. The anime omits these two bullies.
Later, Poco recalls being bullied by teenagers who tease him and push him around for not looking at their faces. In the manga, one even tries to burn him with his cigarette. When Poco's Sister shows up to confront them, they flee out of fear.
A young man who calls himself a doctor. He uses the Ripple to heal the diseases and injuries of his patients. Zeppeli finds him in India as he heals an old man using the Ripple by simply touching the patient's leg. Western medicine would have to amputate the leg to save his life, but the doctor instantly turns the man's skin pink again, informing him that he should be able to walk again in 10 days. Zeppeli asks how the doctor got his powers, and the doctor tells him to go up the Salween River and seek his master, Tonpetty.
A woman who pleads with Dio to spare her baby. Dio promises that he and his men will not harm her infant. He turns the lady into a zombie and she immediately eats her child while it cries. Dio calls it a tragedy that she chose for herself.
Men that couldn't stand the terror of Dio and sacrificed their souls to him. Dio uses them as an example when trying to convince a mother that it's better to join them and be like a family. They stay behind Dio, standing on the ceiling while the woman looks at them in fear.
Mutated creatures created by Dio Brando as a result of experimenting with his prey. He mixed the heads and bodies of various humans and animals. One of the creatures interrupts while Dio is trying to bring Poco's Sister to his side, saying that she's young and full of life energy so she must be tasty. Angered due to the creature lacking etiquette, Dio kicks the chimera into the air and stomps on it, killing it.
When Poco returns home, he finds his father, who slaps him and asks him where he has been. Poco doesn't answer the question, instead asking his father where his sister is. His father replies that she went to look for him, causing Poco to fear the worst.
Zombies who are loyal to Dio for giving them freedom after their executions. One of them asks Dio to give them the order to execute Jonathan, and another says he'll rip him apart with his fangs. Before Dio can respond, one of the zombies hiding on the ceiling above Jonathan charges at him with his claws. However, Jonathan easily dodges and slams the zombie's head into prison bars, with enough force to slice its head open. Dio tells the zombies that Jonathan is his opponent and his alone, so they attack Straizo and Tonpetty instead. The Ripple warriors kill them after the fight.
In the anime, they are replaced with Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam. However, zombies slightly resembling their designs are later shown crowding around Straizo, Tonpetty, and the others.

Jonathan fights the executed zombies in Chapters 20, 21, and 22 of the Phantom Blood PS2 game. Two of them are playable characters for one fight in Extra Battle Mode.
A man working at a bar in London near the ship docking area. Speedwagon is sitting at his bar reading the London Press newspaper when he realizes Jonathan and Erina are about to leave on their ship to America. He rushes out of the bar without paying, causing the bartender to chase after him. After a lengthy chase, he finally grabs onto Speedwagon and yells at him to pay for his meal, only to be knocked down by Dio's coffin. He is omitted from the anime.
Three men carrying a large coffin who accidentally bump into Speedwagon on their way to Jonathan and Erina's ship. They apologize, saying that they have to hurry and get to the ship before it leaves. The men wonder why it's so heavy, noting that a strange oriental man paid them a lot of money to bring it onto the ship. One of the men hears a sound and realizes that something is inside it, but the man behind him tells him to stop talking and focus on loading the coffin onto the ship.
On Dio's command, Wang Chan drinks the blood of a single crewman on the ship Jonathan is aboard; eventually, the entire ship is infested with zombies. They begin killing human passengers on the ship, including a mother trying to protect her baby. When Jonathan uses his final Ripple and forces Wang Chan to grab the ship's screw shaft, Dio orders the zombies to devour Wang Chan's body. However, they are immediately engulfed by the ship's explosion.
The mother of a baby named Elizabeth. She is on the same ship as Jonathan and Erina when Dio's zombies attack. Although she cries out for help in her final moments, she falls down the stairs and dies carrying her baby in her arms. Although it is unclear who her husband could be, he was murdered on the ship by zombies as well. Jonathan notes that she reminds him of his own mother, who died holding him in her arms.
