The Nendoroid (ねんどろいど,nendoroido) series is a brand of figures created by the Japanese Good Smile Company since 2006, with the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure line being manufactured by Medicos Entertainment. They typically depict characters from various anime, manga or video games designed in a chibi or super deformed style, with a large head and smaller body. Composed of ABS and PVC, they can be posed in many ways and are often used as both collector's items or toys. Each figure comes with three facial expressions, a plastic stand and various character-related accessories.

The packaging for the 'Jojo's Bizarre Adventure' line of Nendoroids generally follow the standard template that most Nendoroids follow, such as having a front box window, suggested poses on every side of the box, and the series logo and figure manufacturer's logo on the front of the box. However, there are several distinct aspects unique to the 'Jojo's Bizarre Adventure' line. The front, top, and bottom of the boxes are white, and feature several iconic onomatopoeia from the series embossed into them. The sides and back of each box are generally a single color, and feature a repeating embossed pattern, which differs depending on the part the character is from:
Boxes for characters from Diamond is Unbreakable feature a repeating harlequin pattern, with either a heart symbol or the emblem of Morioh at the center of each diamond.
Boxes for characters from Golden Wind feature a similar repeating harlequin pattern, made up of repeating horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines. One of Giorno Giovanna's ladybug brooches, or the head of a Stand Arrow, are at the center of each diamond.
Upon release, the Nendoroid for DIO featured a defect where the faceplates included lacked the 3 moles on DIO's left ear. Good Smile Company and Medicos Entertainment promptly apologized, and began sending corrected replacements to those who contacted their customer support departments.
