Between the 12th and 16th Century AD, an Aztec tribe performs a human sacrifice during which a man donning a Stone Mask drips his Mask in a murdered young woman's blood. The Mask activates, and many spikes pierce the man's skull. This gives him the ability to suck another's blood with his finger as well as superhuman strength. It is revealed that this tribe tried to take over the world, but was somehow stopped.
Tinerețea cu Dio Brando
In Liverpool, England, 1880, the young Jonathan Joestar, known to his friends as JoJo, is peacefully living at his father George's wealthy estate. Another young boy from London, Dio Brando, is adopted by them due to having recently lost his father, Dario. George believed that he and his infant son were rescued by Dario during a stagecoach accident, in which his wife lost her life. As it turns out, Dario was trying to loot their corpses.
Jonathan attempts to befriend Dio, unaware of his plan to break his spirit through constant bullying and earn George's trust so that he can become the sole heir to the Joestar fortune.
As part of his scheme, Dio torments Jonathan in ways such as "mistaking" his dog Danny as aggressive as an excuse to knee it in the jaw, violently beating him in a boxing match while turning his friends against him, all of which is done while presenting himself before Jonathan's father as a better gentleman and student than his adoptive brother. When Jonathan finds solace in a relationship with Erina Pendleton, Dio steals her first kiss.
This one affront makes Jonathan angry enough to openly confront Dio, as well give him the strength to beat him for the first time. Dio discovers that Jonathan is tougher than he thought. After burning Jonathan's dog Danny to death in an incinerator as revenge, decides to bide his time and try to earn Jonathan's trust.
Masca Din Piatră
A Letter from the Past
Seven years later, in the year 1888, Jonathan and Dio have become friendly and trustworthy toward each other. The two have also become top students, nearing graduation in their respective fields. The two visit George, who has fallen ill in the interim. Jonathan becomes suspicious of Dio's excessive care for him, certain that he has ulterior motives. While continuing his research on the Stone Mask, Jonathan discovers the letter written by Dario Brando that was sent to George Joestar upon his death. In the letter, Dario describes his symptoms, which are identical to George's mysterious illness. Jonathan confronts Dio, believing that Dio must have poisoned his father and is planning to do the same with his own father. Jonathan steals a dose of George's medicine for testing, and Dio decides to dispose of Jonathan before he is exposed.
Jonathan Îl Demaschează Pe Dio
A little over seven years later, in the year 1888, both Jonathan and Dio have now become friendly and trustworthy to each other, which follows Dio's scheme. They have become top students and are about to graduate in their respective fields. Unfortunately, George has been ill for some time. Jonathan becomes suspicious of Dio's excessive care for him and is certain that he has ulterior motives, especially after discovering an old letter written by Dario Brando on his deathbed requesting George Joestar to care for Dio. In his letter, Dario describes his symptoms, which were identical to George's mysterious ailment. Jonathan believes that Dio must have poisoned his father and plans to do the same with his own father. Jonathan confronts him about his suspicions, and Dio decides to dispose of Jonathan before he is exposed.
Returning home, still shaken from the recent events, Dio is surrounded by police constables summoned by Jonathan. In a daring trip to Ogre Street, Jonathan had managed to befriend the honorable criminal Robert E. O. Speedwagon, obtaining from him the address of the Chinese merchant Wang Chan, who had originally sold Dio the poison. Though Dio appears to be cornered, Dio brandishes the Stone Mask and attempts to stab Jonathan. George takes the blow, but his blood is sufficient for the mask's activation, and Dio dons the Stone Mask triumphantly before being shot down by the policemen.
However, to be assured of the lethal effect of the mask, Dio experiments with it on a drunken beggar he finds in the streets. To his horror, the exposure to the mask's bony hooks not only does not kill his test subject but transforms him into a Vampire blessed with superhuman strenght and the ability to rejuvenate as he sucks Dio's blood. Dio is saved from the monster's attack when it is bathed in the morning sunlight and dies.
Returning home, still shaken from the recent events, Dio is surrounded by police constables summoned by Jonathan who, in a daring investigation in Ogre Street, managed to befriend the honorable criminal Robert E. O. Speedwagon and obtained from him the address of Chinese merchant Wang Chan, who provided Dio with the poison. Cornered, Dio attempts to stab Jonathan but hits George instead. After the knife hits George, Dio dons the Stone Mask and is then shot down by the policemen.
As George's life begins to fade, he tells Jonathan to forgive Dio. Dio then comes back as a vampire and slaughters the policemen. A tense fight between Jonathan and Dio ensues. Jonathan, attempting to find a way to kill the seemingly invulnerable creature, resorts to burning down his whole mansion while keeping Dio trapped inside. With great difficulties and impressive feats of strength performed, Jonathan manages to skewer the Vampire into the Statue of the Goddess of Love and escapes before being consumed by the flames himself.
After the battle, Jonathan is hospitalized. Through chance, Erina Pendleton serves as his nurse, and the two rekindle their relationship. Meanwhile, Wang Chan searches the ruins of the mansion to find and sell the Stone Mask, but is instead zombified by Dio, who has survived his fight with Jonathan.
Zeppeli și Unda
- Main article: Jack the Ripper and Zeppeli the Strange (story arc)
- Main article: Ripple Overdrive (story arc)
Some time after the fire, Jonathan and Erina meet Will Anthonio Zeppeli, an Italian baron who utilizes a strange energy called the Ripple (波紋 Hamon). Zeppeli explains that the Ripple is a martial arts technique that allows the user to focus bodily energy into other kinds of energy, including sunlight energy, via proper breathing. After Zeppeli teaches Jonathan how to use the Ripple, the two encounter Wang Chan, who is defeated by Jonathan's Zoom Punch technique but escapes.
The two Ripple users, now accompanied by Speedwagon, take a stagecoach through the tunnel leading to the town of Windknight's Lot, where Wang Chan has escaped to, according to Speedwagon's information. However, the group is soon attacked by a zombified Jack the Ripper. Zeppeli manages to wound Jack, but he escapes into an underground labyrinth hidden in the tunnel. Zeppeli tells Jonathan to finish him off without spilling a drop of a glass of wine. In the tunnels, Jonathan learns to use the Ripple in conjunction with the glass to sense the zombie's position, and kills him via his Ripple Overdrive.
The group exits the tunnel, and Windknight's Lot comes into view. Suddenly, a boy named Poco steals the group's luggage, forcing Jonathan and Zeppeli to chase him. However, after being knocked down by Jonathan's Ripple, Poco retains no memory of his encounter with the group. Having been lured into a graveyard during the chase, the group realizes that Dio had hypnotized the boy to act as a trap. Dio appears to the group, having fully healed from his injuries, and his zombie army begins its assault. Zeppeli attacks Dio, but discovers with horror that Dio has developed a freezing technique to counter the Ripple. Though Jonathan steps in to assist Zeppeli, both are overwhelmed by Dio's ability and knocked away.

- Main article: Pluck for Tomorrow and the Successor (story arc)
Now confident in his superiority to the Ripple users, Dio summons two exceptionally powerful zombies: Bruford and Tarkus, legendary knights who had served as key individuals in the 1565 feud between Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots. Having retained his pride, Bruford asks Dio to challenge Jonathan alone. Dio, assured of his victory, gives his assent and leaves for Windknight's Lot. With Tarkus preventing the group from interfering, Bruford and Jonathan have their duel. Though Bruford drives Jonathan underwater, Jonathan discovers that both water and the metal of Bruford's sword Luck easily conduct the Ripple, and manages to gravely injure the knight.
After recovering almost completely, Jonathan meets Will Anthonio Zeppeli, an Italian baron with a strange power called Ripple (波紋 Hamon), which is subsequently revealed to be a martial arts technique that allows the user to focus bodily energy into other kinds of energy via proper breathing (primarily the energy of sunlight, which is effective against vampires). After teaching Jonathan how to use the Ripple, they set out to seek the defeat of Dio, accompanied by Speedwagon.
Tarkus suddenly jumps toward the group, causing them to crash into a cliffside castle that once served as a training ground for knights. Tarkus's incredible strength allows him to not only survive the fall, but to climb the wall towards the group. Jonathan steps inside the ruins to find a safe place for Poco to hide, but finds himself trapped by a collar around his neck as the door closes. Tarkus recognizes the Room of Dragon Decapitation, and collars himself to engage Jonathan in a Chain Deathmatch.
Terenul Windknight și Cavalerii Negri
Out of the tunnel, Windknight's Lot is now in sight. Suddenly, a boy named Poco steals the group's luggage, instigating a chase after him. However, after retrieving the boy and luggage, Poco shows no signs or memories of the event. Soon after, Dio and his army ambush the group, revealing to have hypnotized the boy to act as a trap for Jonathan's group to fall into. Jonathan and Zeppeli then discover with shock that Dio developed a counter to the Ripple, and Zeppeli's arms are frozen by him. Due to the new defense method that Dio had acquired, he can no longer conduct the Ripple and is rendered useless.
The Bloody Battle
The Three from a Faraway Land
- Main article: The Three from a Faraway Land (story arc)
Bruford is killed by Jonathan, but not before befriending him and giving him his sword: Luck & Pluck. Tarkus then challenges Jonathan. With Zeppeli still weak and Jonathan exhausted, Tarkus forces the group to flee using a glider made of leaves that are fused together with the ripple. During their fight, Zeppeli explains his tragic past shared by the history of the Stone Mask and how he came to learn the Ripple.
After Zeppeli's backstory, Tarkus suddenly jumps toward the group, causing them to crash into a cliffside castle that once served as a training ground for knights. Jonathan becomes trapped in a room with Tarkus, who collars him in preparation for an old form of fighting, leaving the others outside. Jonathan is unable to breathe properly due to the collar and is unable to use the Ripple, leaving him in danger. However, Poco manages to sneak inside the room and allows Zeppeli and Speedwagon to enter. Zeppeli recognizes a prophecy foretelling his death and sacrifices himself to save Jonathan, transferring his life force to him, letting Jonathan overpower and kill Tarkus. Afterward, the group honors Zeppeli before the Ripple Master passes from his wounds.
Confruntarea cu Dio
The battle between Dio and Jonathan begins. Jonathan throws a flurry of roses at Dio, moves to his blind spot, and slices Dio's head open with Bruford's sword, now called Luck & Pluck. However, Dio reveals that he has frozen the sword, trapping Jonathan's arms and legs. Dio begins injecting his zombie essence into Jonathan's carotid artery, but Jonathan manages to defrost himself with the fires surrounding them and ejects the zombie essence from his bloodstream. By setting his own hand aflame, Jonathan manages to land a direct hit on Dio, filling his body with the Ripple. Dio is sent flying off a balcony, firing high-pressure fluid from his eyes as a laser as a last-ditch attack. Jonathan and the group finish off Dio's remaining zombies and destroy the Stone Mask the next morning, having successfully saved the town; the group remains unaware that Dio has managed to tear off his own head before the Ripple can reach it, and that he has escaped along with Wang Chan.
În Castelul Windknight
The group finally reaches Windknight's Lot where Jonathan defeats a zombie named Adams. Zeppeli's Ripple master, Tonpetty, and his two disciples, Dire and Straizo, then show up to help Jonathan and Speedwagon. After rescuing Poco's sister from Dio's zombie Doobie, the group then directly confronts Dio. Dio calls off the horde that surrounded him, saying that Jonathan was his quarry and his alone. Dire steps forward, claiming his right to avenge Zeppeli before Jonathan and Dio can brawl. He engages Dio with his special move, the Thunder-Cross Split Attack, but is killed almost immediately by shattering after being frozen by Dio. Before he shattered completely, Dire managed to land a solid hit on Dio's face, which sent him flying into a rage. Dio calls upon his horde to attack the group while isolating Jonathan in the process, leaving the rest of the group to deal with Dio's zombie army.
Three months after the events in Windknight's Lot, Jonathan marries Erina. Jonathan's friends see the couple off as they board a ship to America for their honeymoon. But in the middle of the voyage, Jonathan suddenly spots Wang Chan. After warning Erina to hide in her room, Jonathan chases Wang Chan into the engine room, where it is revealed that Dio's head has boarded the ship in secret within a special explosion-proof coffin. Dio reveals to Jonathan that he plans to kill him and attach his own head to Jonathan's body before arriving in America. Dio again fires the eye fluid attack, piercing Jonathan's neck and rendering him unable to breathe. Erina arrives to witness Jonathan's wounded state, but a horde of zombies appear behind her. Though Dio commands Wang Chan to slice off Jonathan's head, Jonathan uses the last of his Ripple to destroy Wang Chan's head, causing his body to jam the ship's screw shaft, causing an explosion.
Jocul Crud al Destinului
Shortly after the events in Windknight's Lot, Jonathan marries Erina. The couple see their companions off and board a ship to America for their honeymoon. But in the middle of the ocean, Jonathan suddenly notices Wang Chan and follows him straight into a trap set by Dio, now being just a severed head, who had boarded the ship in secret within a special coffin. Dio reveals to Jonathan that he plans to kill him and attach his own head to Jonathan's body before arriving in America. Although Dio manages to mortally wound Jonathan in front of Erina, Jonathan uses the last of his Ripple to destroy Wang Chan's head, causing his body to jam the ship's engine and trigger an explosion.
Erina reflects on the life Jonathan Joestar lived. Though history will never know Jonathan's heroic deeds, Erina resolves that his descendants, including the unborn child inside her, will hear of the life he lived. Two days later, Erina is rescued near the Canary Islands, bringing the tale of Jonathan's life to a close but beginning a new era of adventure.
