A detailed chronological summary of the life of Jotaro Kujo.

Background (1971-1988)

Jotaro as a young child
It's already been more than twenty years since my beloved daughter married a Japanese... Why did she have to go at the other end of the world? My grandson won't even recognize me!
—Joseph Joestar, Chapter 113: The Man Who Crossed the Atlantic

Jotaro Kujo was born in 1971, to Holy Kujo and Sadao Kujo. Much of Jotaro's youth was that of a normal Japanese child. He participated in a wide variety of activities, including playing ball as a toddler, running track as a young boy and attending school. Throughout his childhood, he was supported and supervised by his mother, Holy, while his father Sadao was constantly on tour.[1] The details of Jotaro's eventual shift into delinquency by the age of 17 are unknown.

The information below derives from the Stardust Crusaders TV anime which was not written by Araki. As such, it may not be considered canon.

The anime adaptation shows that Jotaro lives in a fictitious district called Kugyo (公暁, Kugyō), with flashbacks showing he attended Kugyo Primary School (公暁小学校, Kugyō Shōgakkō) and the Prefectural Kugyō Higashi High School (県立公暁東高等学校, Kenritsu Kugyō Higashi Kōtōgakkō).[2]

Jotaro in his jail cell
He used to be such a good boy... and now I don't know what's happened to him!
—Holy Kujo, Chapter 114: Jotaro Kujo, Part 1

In 1988, at the age of seventeen, Jotaro severely injured four gang members in a fight. Knowing his strength could not grow to such a length, he began thinking he was possessed by an "evil spirit" and so turned himself to the police. Despite the police and Holy telling him he was free to go, Jotaro insisted on staying in his jail cell, demonstrating the danger by taking one of the policeman's guns and shooting himself in the head. He was not killed, however, as a third arm appeared to him and was able to catch the bullet in mid-air.[1]

Jotaro's first Stand battle

Holy soon called her father, Joseph Joestar, to work out the situation. After a brief chat between Jotaro and Joseph failed to sway Jotaro, Joseph sent out his Egyptian friend, Muhammad Avdol. Avdol then sent out his own "evil spirit", known as Magician's Red, and trapped Jotaro's limbs with rings of fire.[3] In defense, Jotaro's "evil spirit" fully appeared before Jotaro and successfully released him from the fire. Joseph then revealed that the "evil spirit" was known as a Stand, a manifestation of a person's life force. While breaking the iron bars of his cell, Jotaro accidentally let himself out of his cell. With Jotaro freed, Joseph told him the real reason he and Avdol came to Japan. A century-old vampire known as DIO, an enemy of Jotaro's great-great-grandfather Jonathan Joestar, had risen once more.[4]

Later, Joseph showed his Stand, Hermit Purple, to Jotaro. Using its ability to put visions of distant places onto film, Joseph produced a picture of DIO for Jotaro by striking a camera. The picture revealed that DIO's body was actually Jonathan's due to the Star Birthmark that all blood members of the Joestar Family possess, being on the nape of his neck. Even with Joseph’s proof, Jotaro still barely believes his story.[5]

Battle Against Noriaki Kakyoin

True evil... are those who use the weak for their own gain, then crush them underfoot when they're through! Especially an innocent woman! And that is exactly what you've done, isn't it? And your Stand gets to hide from the victim, the law, and the consequences. That's why... I will judge you myself!!
—Jotaro Kujo, about to defeat Kakyoin, Stardust Crusaders Episode 2: Who Will Be the Judge?!

The next day, Jotaro walked to school, constantly being hit on by his many female classmates. While walking down some steps, Jotaro's leg was cut, sending him flying into the air.[5] After catching himself with some branches, Jotaro encountered a transfer student, Noriaki Kakyoin, who gave him a handkerchief to clean his wound. At the school nurse's office, Jotaro opened up Kakyoin's handkerchief which revealed that Kakyoin would kill him. The nurse then began going insane, trying to stab Jotaro with a pen. Kakyoin then appeared, calmly telling Jotaro that the nurse was under his control using his Stand, Hierophant Green.[6] After freeing the nurse by pulling Hierophant Green from her mouth, Jotaro was forced to take Kakyoin's signature attack, Emerald Splash. Jotaro survived the attack and, after proclaiming Kakyoin was evil for manipulating the weak, was able to deflect the next Emerald Splash, take hold of Kakyoin, and mercilessly beat him up.[7]

Jotaro removes the bud on Kakyoin

Jotaro brought the unconscious Kakyoin to the Kujo Mansion in order to get information about DIO. There, Joseph told Jotaro that Kakyoin was being controlled by a flesh bud of DIO's. The bud caused Kakyoin to become loyal to DIO and would also kill him in a few days, an operation to remove it would only damage his brain. Using the precise hand movements of his Stand, Jotaro began removing Kakyoin's flesh bud. Despite the flesh attacking him, the removal was successful, allowing Kakyoin to return to his senses.[8]

The next day, Jotaro found that his mother had gained a Stand ability due to DIO's influence. But due to Holy having a much gentler persona, she could not control her Stand. Avdol then estimated that she would die in 50 days and the only way to cure her would be to kill DIO. Thanks to his Stand being able to draw an Aswan We-We fly from their photo of DIO, Jotaro was able to confirm that DIO was in Nile River in Cairo, Egypt, as the fly was known to only live in that area. Knowing DIO's location, Jotaro, Joseph, Avdol, and Kakyoin, who owed a debt to Jotaro for saving his life, began their quest to Egypt. Avdol then gave Jotaro's Stand a name, Star Platinum.[9]

The Journey Begins

Battle Against Tower of Gray

Jotaro caught by Tower of Gray on the plane

After giving a final goodbye to Holy, who was in the care of the Speedwagon Foundation, the four left from Narita airport on a flight to Cairo. While above the East China Sea, they noticed an insect on the plane. The insect then began attacking Jotaro, who quickly deduced that it was a Stand.[10] Avdol was then able to figure out that the Stand was known as Tower of Gray and its user had caused many crashes, making them look like accidents. While Jotaro was able to fend it off, Tower of Gray was able to kill a few innocent people, taking their tongues. However, Kakyoin was able to trap Tower of Gray with Hierophant Green and rip the Stand to shreds. With the Stand defeated, the identity of the user was quickly shown to be Gray Fly, an old man who was on their flight.[11]

Despite Gray Fly's defeat, the group quickly found out that the pilots had already been killed by Tower of Gray earlier. Gray Fly, with his dying breath, then told the Jotaro and the others that he was only the first of many assassins and that they would never reach Egypt. With no other choice, Jotaro and Joseph were forced to land the plane 35 kilometers off the coast of Hong Kong and now knew that they now had to head to Egypt by either land or sea.[12]

Jean Pierre Polnareff's Attack

Arriving in Hong Kong, the group discussed their status over a meal. They soon met a Frenchmen named Jean Pierre Polnareff, who quickly revealed himself to be one of DIO's men. At the Tiger Balm Garden, Avdol faced off against Polnareff's Stand, Silver Chariot. After defeating him, Avdol recognized Polnareff's chivalrous ways and chose not to kill him. Jotaro then quickly removed Polnareff's flesh bud, just as he did to Kakyoin.[12]

While waiting for their next mode of transportation at a ship dock, Polnareff agreed to join Jotaro's group and told them his original reason for joining DIO. Polnareff's sister had been killed by a man with two right hands and had now come to the conclusion that the killer was one of DIO's men.[13]

Battle Against the Imposter Captain Tennille

Jotaro battles Dark Blue Moon underwater

While on the ship, Jotaro saved the life of a child that had fallen overboard from a shark. The child, who Jotaro quickly saw to be a girl, had hidden on board earlier. As they were swimming back to the ship, Jotaro and the girl were nearly attacked by a creature in the water, which turned out to be an underwater Stand. Back on board, Avdol suspected the girl of being the Stand user. However, Jotaro correctly suspected the Stand user to be the ship's captain, Tennille, after fooling him into admitting himself to be a Stand user. Tennille, who admitted himself to being only an imposter of the real Captain Tennille, then used his Stand, Dark Blue Moon, to kidnap the Runaway Girl. Jotaro was able to quickly punch out Tennille and rescue the Runaway Girl while Tennille fled into the water. As Jotaro was pulling the Runaway Girl back up, he was pulled down to the ocean by Tennille. Underwater, Tennille covered Star Platinum in barnacles, sucking away Jotaro's strength. Dark Blue Moon then caused a whirlpool to appear which sucked Jotaro in. Jotaro was able to concentrate all his strength into Star Platinum's fingers which then sliced part of Dark Blue Moon's head off, killing Tennille.[13]

Battle Against Forever

Jotaro sees Forever's abilities

Soon afterward, the ship began exploding, Tennille having planted bombs on the ship earlier. After some time on the lifeboat, Jotaro and the others came across another ship. As everyone looked throughout the ship, they found the ship to be empty, with the exception of an orangutan. The situation proved to be dangerous when one of Tennille's crewmembers was killed by one of the ship's hooks. Jotaro and the others searched the ship for a Stand or its use but could find nothing. While searching, Jotaro found the orangutan, Forever, almost assaulting the Runaway Girl. Jotaro fought Forever and realized that it was the Stand user. As Jotaro continued his fight, Forever began using objects from the entire ship to attack him, as well as being able to absorb into the walls. When Forever was at a safe distance, objects from the ship began strangling Jotaro and capturing Joseph and the others. It quickly became apparent that the entire ship was Forever's Stand, Strength. Jotaro was able to escape the objects by annoying Forever. Using one of his school pins and Star Platinum's precise finger movements, Jotaro was able to subdue Forever. Forever then surrendered, showing Jotaro his belly, but Jotaro did not forgive him and pursued to beat him to death.[14] With Forever dead, Strength began to slowly disintegrate. Jotaro and the others returned to their lifeboat and were successfully able to make it to Singapore.[15]

Battle Against Rubber Soul

Jotaro realizes Yellow Temperance's weakness

With their bodies tired from the recent experience, the group decided to stay a day in Singapore.[15] While traveling around Singapore with Kakyoin and the Runaway Girl, Jotaro saw Kakyoin nearly kill a petty thief. With Kakyoin's personality quite different, Jotaro immediately became suspicious. After almost being pushed down a large building by Kakyoin, Jotaro punched him, revealing Kakyoin to be an imposter. The fake Kakyoin then revealed himself to be Rubber Soul, a Stand user who could use his goo-like Stand, Yellow Temperance, to form into any shape or being.

Jotaro began to fight him, only for Yellow Temperance to throw him out of the cable car they were in. While Jotaro was able to save himself, he noticed a piece of Yellow Temperance had attached itself to him, slowly trying to eat his flesh. After seeing that fire and ice wouldn't work to stop it, Jotaro fought Rubber Soul again. Rubber Soul tried to completely cover Jotaro in Yellow Temperance, but with both now entangled, Jotaro was able to throw himself and Rubber Soul into the water. Since Rubber Soul had to uncover Yellow Temperance from his face in order to breathe, Jotaro used this opportunity to hit Rubber Soul.

Jotaro mercilessly beats Rubber Soul

Rubber Soul then begged for his life and told Jotaro about the killer of Polnareff's sister, J. Geil, whose ability involved mirrors. Rubber Soul then tried one final assault on Jotaro by using Yellow Temperance to pull Jotaro into a water pipe. Using Star Platinum's fist to plug up the water pipe, the water pressure caused Rubber Soul to fly into the water. Rubber Soul tried to give Jotaro another plea of forgiveness, but Jotaro gave him another barrage of attacks. Jotaro later joined back with the group, including the real Kakyoin, in order to get on a train to their next destination, India. Unbeknownst to Jotaro, the Runaway Girl, who had developed a crush on Jotaro, was following them closely.[16]

India and Pakistan

Arriving in Calcutta, Jotaro and the others quickly met the local people until eventually going to a café. There, Polnareff encountered a Stand that used mirrors, meaning that the user who killed his sister was in Calcutta. Deciding to take the battle into his own hands, Polnareff left to fight J. Geil by himself. Avdol and Kakyoin later joined Polnareff in his fight.[17] Later, Jotaro and Joseph found Avdol wounded, having been nearly shot in the head by J. Geil's partner, Hol Horse, with his Stand, Emperor that takes the form of a gun. They managed to treat his wounds and, so that Avdol could make a full recovery, decided to fake his death.[18] After taking Avdol to safety, Jotaro and Joseph managed to find Kakyoin and Polnareff, who had been able to successfully kill J. Geil. However, they were unable to stop Hol Horse from getting away.[19]

Battle Against ZZ

Jotaro takes Wheel of Fortune head-on

As they got close to the border, the group once again encountered the Runaway Girl. After some arguing, Jotaro decided to take her to the border, where they'd buy tickets for her back to Hong Kong. While driving to the border, a car they encountered earlier forced them to nearly collide with an oncoming truck, Star Platinum being their only way of escaping safely. Once the group reached a roadside cafe named Cafe Marhaba, Joseph spotted the same car there. Suspecting the driver to be one of the customers inside, Jotaro, Joseph, and Polnareff began to beat up all the men with muscular arms, due to the driver also having them. However, the brawl proved useless as the car began moving away, the driver's face still unknown. Due to the driver mixing up the road signs, the group entered a narrow mountain way and were pushed off a cliff by the driver's car. Thanks to the combined efforts of Hierophant Green and Star Platinum, the group was able to hook their car onto the enemy car and make it back up the cliff. With them back up, Jotaro used Star Platinum to punch the enemy car. The car soon appeared again, having actually been a Stand called Wheel of Fortune. Wheel of Fortune then transformed and proceeded to attack Jotaro, as well as Kakyoin and Polnareff. The group began running but Wheel of Fortune kept following them through both narrow edges and on top of cliffs. Using the gas that had been left behind from the wounds he caused, Wheel of Fortune was then able to light Jotaro on fire. Thanks to quick thinking, Jotaro was able to avoid the burns and used the opportunity to get close to Wheel of Fortune. With the user now in his range, Jotaro used Star Platinum to beat him.[20]

With Wheel of Fortune defeated, the group soon saw that the user, ZZ, was just a skinny man, his arms being the only muscular part of his body. In order to make sure he wouldn't attack again, they chained him to a rock and took his passport. The obstacle now cleared, Jotaro and the others put the Runaway Girl on the next plane back to Hong Kong, despite her protests.[21]

Battle Against Enya the Hag

Star Platinum sucks up Justice

Having made it to Pakistan, Jotaro's group stopped for the night in a town covered in fog. Moments later, they found the corpse of a man who seemingly died of shock. The man's body was completely covered with holes, yet there was no blood. They were then approached by an old woman, Enya, who offered a night's stay at her hotel. When Jotaro heard Enya call Joseph by his name, his suspicion was aroused and he asked how she knew it. Enya escaped being unmasked by claiming Polnareff had said it earlier. Later that night, Jotaro went looking for Polnareff, who had been gone for quite a while. Jotaro, who had been suspicious of Enya, proved his thoughts correct when she called him by his name. Jotaro then revealed to Enya that he had signed his name as "Qtaro Kujo" in the guestbook, thus solidifying his suspicions of her being a Stand user. Enya began attacking Jotaro with her Stand, Justice, which had actually been the fog that surrounded the town.

Polnareff and Hol Horse, who each had been attacked earlier, appeared and told him that Justice could take possession of someone with any wound on their body. This also included corpses, explaining the mystery of the corpse from earlier that day. Jotaro was able to stop Justice by having Star Platinum completely inhale it, thus defeating Enya.[21] With Justice now rendered useless, the entire town reverted to nothing more than a cemetery. The group decided to take Enya along with them because of her knowledge of DIO's Stand ability and his location in Egypt.[22]

Battle Against Steely Dan

Star Platinum beats up Steely Dan

In the city of Karachi, another Stand user, Steely Dan, appeared and told Enya that she had failed. Enya's flesh bud then killed her. Jotaro quickly attacked Steely Dan, only for the pain felt by Dan to also be felt by Joseph. Dan revealed that his Stand, Lovers had burrowed deep inside Joseph's body and any pain that was inflicted upon Dan would also affect Joseph. With his grandfather's life at stake, Jotaro was forced into doing whatever Dan wanting him to, threatening to hurt himself (and therefore Joseph) if Jotaro didn't comply. Elsewhere, Kakyoin and Polnareff had shrunk their Stands inside Joseph's brain and tried to find The Lovers. After some fighting, Hierophant Green was able to defeat The Lovers, forcing it to leave Joseph's brain. In the last effort, Dan tried to control Jotaro and then a small girl until he saw that Kakyoin had tied Hierophant Green to The Lovers. Jotaro then beat Dan harder than any of his previous opponents and threw a piece of paper at him containing all the cruel things he had done to him, calling it his "receipt".[22]

Arabia and the Red Sea

Battle Against Sun

The Joestar group finds out the truth about The Sun

Due to unrest in the area, the group chose to not go to Iran and Iraq, instead of passing along the strait from Karachi to Abu Dhabi. Riding on camel-back, they traveled across the Arabian Desert from Abu Dhabi to Saudi Arabia. As the heat raged on, Joseph surprised the group by revealing that it actually should be nighttime. They soon realized that the Sun itself was a Stand when it was rising from the west. The heat grew worse, with even the scorpions not being able to handle the heat. Kakyoin even tried to attack The Sun directly, only for it to bounce the attack back. However, after finding shade under a rock, they were able to find the user, Arabia Fats, who had been using a mirror to hide. With a simple stone throw, Fats was knocked out and the group were able to continue in the cold desert night.[23]

Battle Against Death Thirteen

Buying a Cessna plane in Yarpline, the group was forced to take a sick baby with them to the next town. While in flight, a sleeping Kakyoin began freaking out and messed up the controls. While Joseph was able to keep everything steady, they then ran into a coconut tree and crashed. Even though everyone ended up safe, Kakyoin's strange attitude continued as he tried to harm the baby, Mannish Boy. That night, after they all fell asleep, Jotaro and the others woke up in a dream world and were confronted by an enemy Stand, Death Thirteen, which was being controlled by Mannish Boy. They found themselves unable to use their Stands and were getting attacked. However, Kakyoin, who had summoned his Stand before going to sleep, was able to use Hierophant Green in the dream world. Kakyoin was able to subdue Death 13 and free the rest. With their Stands inactive in the dream world, everyone, sans Kakyoin, forgot these events.[24] It can be presumed that the heroes were rescued and Mannish Boy given to someone else's care.

Battle Against High Priestess

Jotaro fights the elusive High Priestess

After picking Avdol back up[25] (and finally telling Polnareff the truth about Avdol's supposed "death"), he revealed that he had bought a submarine that would take them across the Red Sea. The sailing went well for a while until they were attacked by High Priestess, an enemy Stand controlled by a user named Midler. Using its ability to transform into anything glass, metallic, or rubber, High Priestess tried to drown them and attack them using metallic objects. As the submarine sank, Jotaro and the others were forced to take scuba gear and swim. High Priestess then formed into the body of the ocean and proceeded to eat them. It tried to crush Jotaro with its teeth, but Jotaro was able to use Star Platinum to completely smash High Priestess's teeth, thus breaking Midler's own teeth and knocking her out. They then swam out of the Red Sea. After 30 days of dangers, they had finally made it to Egypt.[18]


Jotaro learns of his mother's worsening condition

Upon request by Joseph, the Speedwagon Foundation sent extra help in the form of another Stand user, the user of The Fool. The user turned out to be a dog named Iggy who could manipulate the sand around him. Before leaving, the Speedwagon employees also told Jotaro and Joseph that Holy's condition was getting worse with every passing day and that she only had about two weeks left. They also told them they saw nine other people going to the same area that DIO was thought to be hiding before taking off.[26]

Battle Against Geb

Jotaro buries N'Doul in the Egyptian sand

After some time driving through the sands, Jotaro and the others found one of the employees have died from drowning. The other employee was quickly decapitated when the water from Joseph's canteen came out and ripped his head inside. Realizing they were now under attack from a water Stand, Geb, the group tried to separate. Geb went for Kakyoin, slashed his eyes, and then went after Polnareff. Before Polnareff could be hurt, the dead employee's digital watch began to beep. Geb instead attacked the watch, indicating that it detected its targets through sound. After multiple attempts to either run away or attack it directly, the heroes' car was destroyed by quicksand and Avdol was badly wounded. With no other choice, Jotaro forced Iggy to use The Fool in order to fly them to the location of the Stand user. Jotaro saw that the user, N'Doul, was blind and solely relied on sound to attack. Jotaro was able to distract N'Doul by throwing Iggy towards him and took this moment in order to get behind N'Doul and land a strong punch. Defeated, N'Doul chose to kill himself with Geb. While he did not fear death, he did not want to be killed by DIO, his savior, for his failure. Before dying, N'Doul told Jotaro that Geb was one of the Nine Gods of Egypt, implying the other gods were Stand users as well. Jotaro buried N'Doul in the sand and seemingly began a friendship with Iggy (though it was a rough start).[26]

Battle Against Anubis

Jotaro is stabbed by Anubis-controlled Silver Chariot

Jotaro and the others quickly took Kakyoin and Avdol to a hospital in Aswan.[27] While Avdol was able to recover quickly, Kakyoin had to stay in the hospital. The good news was that his pupils weren't damaged and he'd be able to join them in a few days. Later in Kom Ombo, Polnareff came across an enemy, Chaka, but quickly defeated him and took his sword. While at a barbershop in Edfu, the sword, Anubis the living Stand, took possession of the barber, Khan, but Jotaro and Polnareff were able to stop him and break the sword. But Anubis soon took possession of Polnareff instead and used Silver Chariot for a twin swords attack. Despite getting stabbed, Jotaro was able to shatter the hilt of the blade and free Polnareff of Anubis's control. Unbeknownst to Jotaro, the remainder of the sword eventually fell into the river, where it rusted several days later.[28]

Alessi's Attack

Jotaro and Polnareff prepare to beat up Alessi
Even as a kid...when push comes to shove, Jotaro gets the job done...

In Luxor, while Joseph and Avdol were dealing with another enemy user,[29] Jotaro and Polnareff were soon involved in their own battle. Polnareff was turned into a child by the ability of enemy Alessi's Stand, Sethan. Alessi took advantage of Polnareff's size and tried to kill him. Jotaro eventually came to the scene but Alessi quickly changed him to a child as well, roughly seven years of age. Since he had only recently gained Star Platinum, he now found himself unable to use it. Despite this disadvantage, Jotaro, who had always been strong even as a kid, was still able to knock Alessi out and revert them back to their original ages. When Alessi awoke, Jotaro and Polnareff continued to beat him into oblivion. They soon met back up with Joseph and Avdol.[30]

After receiving a call from the Speedwagon Foundation, Joseph informed everyone that Holy had only four or five days left to live. In order to speed things up, they then took a train from Luxor to Cairo.[31]

Battle Against Daniel J. D'Arby

Reaching Cairo, Joseph used Hermit Purple in order to gain a photograph of DIO's new mansion. They kept asking around but could not find anyone that knew its location. Near the pyramids of Giza, they then met a man, Daniel J. D'Arby, who claimed to knew the whereabouts of the mansion. However, being a gambler himself, D'Arby told them they had to gamble with him in order to learn such information. Polnareff played a game in which he guessed which piece of beef jerky a cat would get. But Polnareff lost the bet when the cat took the other piece and D'Arby took his soul in the process. D'Arby revealed himself to be an enemy Stand user and anytime someone lost at his games his Stand, Osiris, would take their soul. Joseph played a game involving dropping coins in an already-full glass of liquor, the loser being the one that made the liquor spillover. Joseph was seemingly winning the game (using tactics of his own) until D'Arby was able to get one more coin in, Joseph's next coin being the one to lose. Checking the glass, Jotaro found that D'Arby had actually cheated again using a plan involving melting chocolate that had already been placed in the glass earlier. Seeing that D'Arby had once again cheated, Jotaro challenged D'Arby at his own game of poker.[32]

Jotaro takes on D'Arby in a game of poker

Jotaro demonstrated to D'Arby Star Platinum's precise vision and accuracy, telling him that he would not be so easy to cheat against. Even after this, D'Arby tried another tactic at cheating, resulting in Star Platinum breaking his index finger. Using a nearby boy as the dealer, Jotaro bets his soul in order to start the game. D'Arby made Joseph's and Polnareff's souls into six chips each, meaning Jotaro would have to win a minimum of two hands in order to win them back. Jotaro lost the first hand, losing three of his six soul chips. On the second hand, Jotaro chose to not look at his cards and also raised the hand with Avdol's soul. D'Arby called the hand with the rest of Jotaro's soul and all of Polnareff's, but then raised him all of Joseph's soul as well. Jotaro, keeping a cool face, called the bet with Kakyoin's soul. In order to intimidate D'Arby, Jotaro used Star Platinum's speed to light himself a cigarette and get some juice. He then bet his mother's soul as well and told D'Arby that the only way to call it would be to tell them the secret of DIO's Stand. With the possibility of losing (and therefore telling the secret and then being killed by DIO for being a traitor), D'Arby fell unconscious, automatically folding the hand. Seeing D'Arby's hand of four kings, Avdol was surprised to see Jotaro's hand was nothing important. D'Arby's forfeit freed everyone's souls but D'Arby had become so mentally fatigued that they were not able to learn the location of the mansion.[32]

Continuing their search, Jotaro and the others eventually ran into Hol Horse once more. He tried to take Polnareff hostage but he was easily beaten. A moment later, a truck hit them but they were able to make it out with only minor injuries. Unbeknownst to them, Hol Horse ended up accidentally wounding himself in the process.[33] They continued their questioning until they found a beggar that had much information. He did not return, giving the possibility he may have been killed by another Stand user.[34]

The Joestar Group approaches DIO's mansion

The next day, Iggy, who had just recovered from a serious battle against another enemy, and Kakyoin, who had finally been released from the hospital, met up with them. With all six now joined together once more, Iggy led them to the location of DIO's mansion.[35]

Battle Against Telence T. D'Arby

Jotaro plays against Terence T. D'Arby

The team arrived at DIO's mansion and were greeted by its butler, Telence T. D'Arby, younger brother of Daniel J. D'Arby. D'Arby quickly separated Jotaro, Joseph, and Kakyoin from Polnareff, Avdol, and Iggy and took them to his game room. D'Arby then challenged the trio to video games and if they lost their soul would be transferred to one of his dolls. First, D'Arby challenged Kakyoin to a racing game. While Kakyoin put up a good challenge, D'Arby was still able to win and took Kakyoin's soul. D'Arby then challenged Jotaro to a baseball video game named Oh! That's A Baseball!. In the beginning, Jotaro kept on missing and giving D'Arby the lead. However, having "memorized" the gameplay, Jotaro was able to successfully score four hits and take the advantage. But this did not distract D'Arby and he was able to take the lead once more. As the game continued, Jotaro was able to figure out that D'Arby's Stand, Atum, must be able to read an individual's mind. Jotaro then began announcing what his next movements would be, but the movements he actually did were different. D'Arby stared into Jotaro's soul but found that he wasn't lying. Jotaro continued this tactic and was able to defeat D'Arby in the process. D'Arby's loss was able to return Kakyoin to his body and the trick was revealed to be Joseph using Hermit Purple to control the game. With Kakyoin now safe, Jotaro beat D'Arby hard enough to paralyze him.[35]

Jotaro defeats Nukesaku

With the game won, Jotaro, Joseph, and Kakyoin proceeded further into the mansion. Not long after that, the mansion began to crumble, indicating Polnareff and Avdol were fighting another enemy somewhere else inside.[36] They then headed towards the tower of the mansion, where they suspected Polarneff and Avdol to be.[37] They were soon confronted by one of DIO's remaining lackeys, Nukesaku, whom Jotaro easily beat. In exchange for letting him live, they took Nukesaku with them in order to gain any last-minute information they needed.[38]

The trio soon met back up with Polnareff, who was in the middle of fighting DIO. DIO then took the chance to run higher up the mansion's tower. Polnareff then told them of Avdol and Iggy, both of whom had died fighting DIO's right-hand man. Holding back their sadness, the four went to the top of the tower and found DIO's casket. They then forced Nukesaku to open the casket. However, instead of DIO, they found Nukesaku himself in the casket. It was their first chance at seeing DIO's Stand, The World. Sensing the danger, Jotaro and the others fled the castle. With nightfall, they knew DIO would begin to chase them.[38]

Struggle Against DIO

There's only one reason you lost... just one simple reason. You pissed me off.
—Jotaro Kujo, Chapter 264: DIO's World, Part 18
Jotaro and DIO begin their battle

Now in Cairo, the team decided to split up, Jotaro and Polnareff on one end and Joseph and Kakyoin on the other. Needing an immediate mode of transportation, Jotaro and Polnareff stole a motorcycle and continued to search for DIO. They found two destroyed cars, indicating Joseph and Kakyoin were already in battle with DIO. Jotaro was able to find Joseph, who revealed that The World's ability was to stop time. Joseph was then stabbed by a knife DIO threw while in the frozen time and was rendered unconscious. Angered by this, as well as Kakyoin's death that had occurred moments earlier, Jotaro began his fight with DIO.[38]

DIO, invader of Jonathan's life, gets his World invaded by Jonathan's descendant

As the fight started, Jotaro saw that The World had similar strength and speed to Star Platinum. They began pummeling each other, seemingly to equal ends. But The World proved slightly stronger and injured Jotaro. DIO then froze time but was shocked to see that Jotaro, even by just a little bit, was also able to move in the frozen time. However, DIO found a magnet on himself and Jotaro. Both magnets were on the same side, giving the illusion that Jotaro could actually move. DIO then moved in for the killing blow, but Jotaro was able to land a powerful punch in the frozen time, indicating the magnets to be a red herring. However, DIO quickly recovered after taking the blood of an innocent bystander.[38]

Jotaro, surrounded by a terrifying amount of knives that DIO had thrown at him

DIO froze time once more and proceeded to hit Jotaro with a barrage of knives from all sides. Jotaro was able to block several knives in frozen time but found himself unable to stop them all once time return to normal. He was stabbed multiple times and fell to the ground. However, anticipating such an attack, Jotaro stuffed his jacket and hat with magazines, thus preventing his body and head from actually getting injured. But he still had been stabbed deeply in his arms and right leg. DIO then came to see if Jotaro had truly died. To make sure, he was about to cut off Jotaro's head, until Polnareff came and stabbed DIO in the head. Using another time stop, DIO beat Polnareff. DIO then checked Jotaro's heartbeat, forcing him to use Star Platinum to stop his heart. DIO continued on with his original plan to cut Jotaro's head off but Jotaro was able to use this opportunity to land a strong blow directly into DIO's head and shatter part of his skull. Heavily wounded, DIO tried to retreat. But at every angle, Jotaro easily followed DIO and continuously beat him. But luck fell on DIO, as he was able to make it back to where Joseph's body was. Draining Joseph's body, DIO's wounds were all healed and he transformed into a much stronger form.[38]

The final attack

Joseph's soul then appeared to Jotaro and told him to stay calm despite what anger DIO may cause him. DIO then completely drained Joseph's body, causing Jotaro to charge directly at DIO. DIO froze time again and Jotaro was able to move in frozen time more. But DIO, now supercharged, could move for an even longer time as well. DIO's strength had also increased and he began constantly beating Jotaro. To finish off Jotaro, DIO froze time again and brought forth a Road Roller to crush Jotaro beneath it. Jotaro tried to push it back with Star Platinum, but was unable to continuously do it and was seemingly crushed. It had seemed that DIO was finally victorious in his century-long feud with the Joestars. But DIO soon found himself unable to move because Jotaro himself was able to stop time. Jotaro used his newly-discovered advantage to heavily injure DIO's legs. DIO then sprayed the blood from his legs onto Jotaro's eyes in an attempt to obscure his sight and began a strong kick with his good leg. However, Jotaro was able to see through Star Platinum's eyes and counterattack with his arm. DIO's The World then began to crumble from the attack, causing DIO's body to break down as well. Even as he shouted how his defeat was impossible, DIO's head exploded, finally marking his death. With DIO dead, the Joestar Group's journey ended on January 16, 1989.[38]

At Journey's End

Jotaro and Joseph bid farewell to Polnareff

Jotaro and Polnareff's injuries were dealt with by the Speedwagon Foundation. Since DIO had taken much of Joseph's blood, Jotaro asked for a blood transfusion from DIO's body to Joseph's. After using Star Platinum to restart Joseph's heartbeat, the transfusion began. The shriveled-up body that Joseph had after losing so much blood began returning to his normal muscular figure and Joseph fully revived. Later, Jotaro and Joseph took the remainder DIO's body outside, where it evaporated with the rising sun. They then gave one final moment of thought for Kakyoin, Iggy, and Avdol.[39]

According to Enrico Pucci, Jotaro also consulted DIO's Diary the same day, committing DIO's plan to reach Heaven to memory before burning down the notebook to erase the knowledge.[40]

At the airport, Jotaro and Joseph gave a final goodbye to Polnareff, who was ready to return to his home country of France. The trio gave their final goodbyes and left, promising to see one another again someday. In Japan, Holy awoke fully healed and freed from the curse. Even miles away, she knew her son and father were coming home.[39]

Pre-Diamond is Unbreakable (1989-1999)

Jotaro and Polnareff in the '90s investigating the Arrows

Sometime after DIO's defeat, Jotaro and Polnareff discovered the existence of the excavated Stand arrows and spent the 1990s tracking them down, with Jotaro going to the Americas and Asia while Polnareff searched Europe and Africa.[41]

After graduating, Jotaro studied marine biology and eventually became a marine biologist renowned for his research on sharks and whales. He married an American woman and had a daughter named Jolyne in circa 1992.

While looking through Joseph's will, the Joestar Family discovered that Joseph had an illegitimate son named Josuke Higashikata in Morioh, Japan. In an attempt to get a picture of him using Hermit Purple, Joseph discovered an ominous figure in the photos instead, prompting the then 26-year-old Jotaro to travel to Morioh on Joseph's behalf to discuss with Josuke on Joseph's inheritance and to warn him about the figure in the photographs.

Diamond is Unbreakable (1999)

Meeting Josuke Higashikata

Jotaro questions Koichi
Jotaro and Josuke's first meeting goes poorly

Arriving at Morioh in the Spring of 1999, Jotaro met Josuke Higashikata and his classmate Koichi Hirose. Josuke proved to be a kind person but would get angry when someone would insult his hair. His Stand, Crazy Diamond, had the ability to restore organisms and heal, as well as break down an object to their original components. After accidentally insulting his hair, Jotaro got into a fight with Josuke. Crazy Diamond's attacks were powerful enough to break through Star Platinum's defense, but thanks to the latter's time stop, Jotaro was able to subdue him. Jotaro took this time to show Josuke a photo of a man named Anjuro Katagiri, a convicted serial killer and rapist. While he didn't elaborate further to Josuke, he told him to be careful.[42]

Battle Against Anjuro Katagiri

Jotaro and Josuke are trapped by Angelo

Later, Jotaro called Josuke to inform him that Angelo's Stand, Aqua Necklace, could disguise itself as any type of liquid. Without much of a fight, Josuke was able to capture it. However, after taking his eyes off of it, Aqua Necklace was able to escape and kill his grandfather, Ryohei Higashikata. Following the funeral, Jotaro and Josuke waited three days for Angelo to attack, drinking only bottled water in the duration. Angelo took advantage of the climate when, during a rainy day, slipped into the house and turned on all the pipes and anything that let out water and steam. Angelo surrounded Jotaro and Josuke throughout the house until he finally had Aqua Necklace go inside Josuke's mouth. While it seemed like Angelo had won, in actuality, Josuke had earlier placed a plastic glove inside his mouth and used it to catch Angelo.[43]

Josuke traps Angelo into a rock

Now helpless, Angelo told them that, due to Japanese law, they had no right to kill him. However, Josuke uses Crazy Diamond to fuse Angelo into the rock. While being fused, Angelo told Jotaro and Josuke that he had gained his Stand when a man with a Bow and Arrow had shot him. Instead of dying, he gained his Stand powers and was later able to escape prison. With this information, Jotaro was able to conclude that the Bow and Arrow was how DIO had gained his Stand abilities ten years ago. Angelo took this time to have Aqua Necklace, still inside the glove, try to strangle a child, taking a hostage in the process. He then insulted Josuke's hair, which resulted in Josuke breaking part of the rock Angelo was in and deactivating Aqua Necklace. While Angelo lived, he could no longer speak and was trapped in the stone forever.[43]

Pursuing the Arrow

Red Hot Chili Pepper's Attack

Checking with the Speedwagon Foundation, Jotaro confirmed that it was Enya that had used the Bow and Arrow on DIO over a decade ago. With Enya's death, the whereabouts of the Bow and Arrow had gone missing. Someone else then got a hold of it and began creating Stand users, mostly around Morioh. Jotaro knew it was time to find the Bow and Arrow and destroy them. Around this time, Josuke and Koichi were involved in a fight involving the Bow and Arrow's owner, Keicho Nijimura and his brother Okuyasu. By the end of the conflict, Okuyasu became an ally but Keicho was killed and the Bow and Arrow were stolen by someone else.[44]

Jotaro is shocked by Red Hot Chili Pepper

Several days later, Jotaro received a phone call from a stranger who claimed to be the one that killed Keicho and stole the Bow and Arrow. He told Jotaro to leave Morioh soon or else he would kill him and Josuke. Using his Stand power, Red Hot Chili Pepper, the stranger was able to electrocute the phone line, nearly shocking Jotaro and destroying the telephone.[45] At another time, Josuke called Jotaro and informed him of an enemy Stand in the area. In order to fill in the details, they agreed to meet at Morioh Station. When Jotaro arrived, Josuke revealed that the one that called him was an imposter, used by a Stand user named Toshikazu Hazamada. He is nearly stabbed when Toshikazu uses his Stand to control Josuke before the goons Toshikazu attacked showed up and beat him up.[46]

Jotaro meets with a Speedwagon Foundation employee

Jotaro has later relayed a message from the Speedwagon Foundation that said that Joseph would be arriving in Morioh soon. Using Hermit Purple, Joseph would be able to find the user of Red Hot Chili Pepper. Gathering in an area without electricity, Jotaro talked to Josuke, Okuyasu, and Koichi about Joseph's arrival. Red Hot Chili Pepper appeared, having stowed in the battery of Okuyasu's motorcycle, and started going to the Morioh Harbor where Joseph was expected to arrive. Okuyasu stopped Red Hot Chili Pepper and the two began to fight. While Okuyasu was winning, Red Hot Chili Pepper was able to gain a boost in energy from an underground cable and defeat Okuyasu. Splitting into groups, Jotaro went with Okuyasu to the boat Joseph was on, while Josuke and Koichi stayed on land to fight off Red Hot Chili Pepper and its user Akira Otoishi. Josuke was successful in defeating Otoishi, but Akira was still able to get on board. However, Okuyasu was able to stop Akira once and for all and Akira was sent to jail. With Joseph safe, Josuke was able to meet his father for the first time.[47] Later, rather than destroying it, Jotaro took the Bow and Arrow to the Speedwagon Foundation for safekeeping.[48]

Battle Against Rats

Jotaro and Josuke track a rat Stand user

While imprisoned, Akira confessed to having used the Bow and Arrow on a rat. Jotaro took Josuke on a hunt to find the rat, using ball bearings and their Stands' speed and accuracy to hit. While setting up traps, they found a group of dead rats having been fused together into a cube. Following one of the storm drains, they found a house and farm that was completely empty. The two searched the house but couldn't find any holes in the walls. The two then split up to check different rooms. Jotaro found one rat that used its Stand, Ratt, to shoot poison darts. While Star Platinum caught it, the dart automatically began to melt Jotaro's arm. Meeting back up with Josuke, who had killed another rat that used the same Stand, Jotaro's arm was fixed. After calling the Speedwagon Foundation, Jotaro learned that Akira had actually hit two rats. With one now dead, they continued their search for the other.[49]

Jotaro and Josuke caught in Ratt's crosshairs

Following any bite marks, droppings, and other tracks left behind, Jotaro and Josuke continued following the other rat, whom Jotaro named Bug-Eaten, past the storm drains. After some time, the tracks stopped, indicating that Bug-Eaten backtracked to some distance away. Now at a distance, Bug-Eaten used Ratt to shoot a dart into Josuke's neck. But Jotaro used Star Platinum to stop time and remove the dart safely. Realizing Bug-Eaten was waiting for nightfall in order to escape, Jotaro acted as a distraction for Bug-Eaten to hit at while Josuke tried to hit Bug-Eaten. Jotaro was able to avoid the shots at first, but Bug-Eaten began throwing more shots ricochet off rocks and hit Jotaro. Jotaro continued hit distraction, his body melting more and more until Josuke was able to trick Bug-Eaten and kill it.[49]

Pursuing the Killer

The Killer Makes Himself Known

Josuke gives Jotaro Kira's button

Soon after the events involving Shigekiyo Yangu's disappearance, the group met up and discussed the circumstances around it. They concluded that the killer may be a Stand user, due to the unusual lack of evidence. Reimi Sugimoto did not know how or why they had met, but she confirmed that Shigechi was murdered by the same killer that killed her. Just before his death, Shigechi's Harvest delivered Josuke a button which seemed to have fallen off the killer's suit jacket. Jotaro decided to deliver the button to the Speedwagon Foundation to be analyzed; he figured the button should be able to narrow their suspects down due to it belonging to one certain brand.[50]

Star Platinum punches Killer Queen in the head

One morning, Jotaro was questioning the clothing stores around Morioh about the owner of the button when he encountered Koichi. They entered a shoe store called Mukade-ya, where they found a suit with the very same buttons hanging on a rack inside. However, before they could learn about the suit's owner, the shopkeeper was attacked by Yoshikage Kira's Sheer Heart Attack. Jotaro froze time and landed several punches on Sheer Heart Attack, but none of these attacks seemed to affect its hard body. He soon discovered that the Stand was automatically attracted to heat and urged Koichi to keep his own Stand close by; an order that Koichi ends up disobeying. When Sheer Heart Attack turned on Koichi, Jotaro stopped time once more and started a fire, thus diverting the explosion to him. Jotaro was disabled by the attack for some time, forcing Koichi to fight Kira alone. He regained consciousness sometime after Koichi was punched through the chest by Killer Queen, and managed to punch Kira senseless and end the fight in a draw. Joined by Josuke and Okuyasu, the four chased after a weakened Kira only to find that he had changed his appearance completely.[51]

Battle Against Yoshihiro Kira

Star Platinum isolates Yoshihiro

Josuke, Okuyasu, Koichi and Jotaro visited Kira's old home to find clues on his personality and whereabouts. While searching for a room with Josuke, Jotaro found a picture album and a record that Kira kept on the growth of his nails. Suddenly, a camera on the desk went off. The two looked at the photo and noticed that Kira's father Yoshihiro was sitting crouched in the background. Yoshihiro attacked Jotaro and Josuke using his Stand Atom Heart Father's ability. However, Jotaro outwitted the man by taking a new photograph and isolating Yoshihiro in it. This kept the ghost inside the photo until Okuyasu mistakenly opened the sealed photograph and released him. Yoshihiro stole the Stand arrow that Josuke discovered and made his escape.[52]

Battle Against Yoshikage Kira

Jotaro, Josuke, Okuyasu, and Koichi interrogate Hayato...
...Leading to their untimely demise.

On the morning that Kira activated Killer Queen Bites the Dust, Jotaro and a number of other Stand users had decided to gather to discuss their findings on Kira's whereabouts and identity. They encountered Hayato Kawajiri and recognized him as the boy from the photograph that Rohan Kishibe took, and immediately began to question Hayato about it. This activated Bite the Dust, and Jotaro, Josuke, Okuyasu, and Koichi were subsequently killed by Killer Queen. Time rewound, and on his next try, Hayato succeeded in exposing Kira's identity. A final showdown between Josuke and Kira began.[53]

Jotaro, Koichi and Rohan heard loud noises coming from down the street and went to investigate. They found Kira, bloody and wounded from his battle with Josuke (and Okuyasu). Kira attempted to invoke Bite the Dust once more on a female nurse, but Koichi uses Echoes ACT3 to weigh down Kira's hand and prevent him from pulling the trigger. Using the opportunity, Jotaro stopped time and punched Kira with Star Platinum. Kira was crushed by a nearby ambulance and finally defeated.[54][55]

Farewell to the Golden Heart

Jotaro and Joseph bade farewell to Morioh

Following Kira's defeat, Jotaro and the rest of Morioh's Stand users bade Reimi farewell. Jotaro and Joseph prepared to leave Morioh on a boat, while Josuke sent them off. Jotaro was concerned that other Stand users like Kira may appear, but Joseph assured him that Josuke and the others would protect the town with their golden spirits. It is revealed that Jotaro later earned a professor's degree for the thesis on starfish that he wrote while he was in Morioh.[56]

At some point while Jotaro was in Japan, Jolyne was suffering from a very high fever, yet Jotaro did not go back to visit her.[57]

Vento Aureo (2001)

The Son of DIO

Jotaro receives a call from Koichi

In 2001, Jotaro asked Koichi to go on a mission to Italy. His objective was to get a skin sample of a boy named Haruno Shiobana, which would then be given to the Speedwagon Foundation for analyzing.[58]

Sometime later, Koichi reported back to Jotaro that Haruno Shiobana, who now went by Giorno Giovanna, was a Stand user. Jotaro then revealed to Koichi that Giorno was the son of DIO and wanted to get his skin sample to investigate him further. However, now knowing that he was a Stand user, Jotaro called off the mission.[59]

Pre-Stone Ocean (2001-2011)

A picture of Jotaro and his wife

Due to his busy lifestyle (including his excursions dealing with supernatural threats), Jotaro had a poor relationship with his wife and daughter.

In 2006, Jolyne was framed for pickpocketing and sent to prison. Jotaro's wife called him to come help bail her out, but he refused and hung up because he had to go to Tokyo for an emergency. Jolyne was ultimately sent to juvenile detention, resulting in their relationship worsening.

At another point, Jolyne took Jotaro's car out for a joyride and was accused of stealing it. However, Jotaro left to another country, having work to do.[57] Jotaro eventually divorced his wife,[60] furthering deteriorating the relationship between him and Jolyne. Despite the large gap between the two, Jotaro still ultimately cared about Jolyne.

Stone Ocean (2011)

Battle Against Johngalli A.

Jotaro loses his memory and Stand to Whitesnake, putting him in a coma

In 2011, when Jolyne was imprisoned in Green Dolphin Street Prison for a crime she didn't commit, a 40-year-old Jotaro learned of Johngalli A.'s link with his former enemy DIO and comes to the prison to have Jolyne escape, aware that it is a trap designed for him. However he and Jolyne are attacked by two enemies instead: Johngalli A. and the Stand Whitesnake cooperate to take down Jotaro; despite his prowess, Whitesnake manages to steal Jotaro's Stand and memories, storing them in the form of DISCs, and he falls into a coma. Yet, before falling unconscious, he confesses his affection for his daughter, prompting Jolyne to stay in prison and try to retrieve the DISCs.

Coma and Return

Jotaro climatically returns to save his daughter

For most of Jolyne's adventures in Green Dolphin Street Prison, Jotaro was trapped in his coma, being taken care of by doctors from the Speedwagon Foundation who watch over his slowly decaying body and experiment with his condition. The doctors discover among others that he still has instinctive memories of certain things, such as Jolyne and his hat.

After Jolyne successfully sends his Memory DISC back to him, Jotaro makes a slow recovery. However, he makes a full return during Jolyne's second confrontation with Enrico Pucci in Cape Canaveral along with Ermes Costello. Appearing just in time to save Jolyne from being shot, Jotaro punches Pucci upside the head with Star Platinum. Now fully mastering his Stand, he confronts Pucci and has Ermes shoot the priest, stopping time in order to follow up and launch a spear straight at Pucci's head. However, Pucci somehow is able to see and react to the spear and narrowly avoids being killed, while also making use of the spear's momentum to send him toward the ideal location to unlock the Stand Made in Heaven.

Battle Against Made in Heaven

The heroes see that time is accelerating

Some time later, Jolyne wakes up, she and her companions unharmed while approaching helicopters confirm that gravity has returned to normal. Somehow, everyone was moved 200 meters from the shuttle, and the priest has disappeared. Jotaro can still sense Pucci though, and Ermes claims that Pucci is hiding, entering a building to protect herself from an incoming rain. However, everyone finds themselves soaked, and the rain has already stopped. Suddenly, the automatic door of the building closes itself at a tremendous speed on Ermes. Dumbfounded, Ermes escapes with some difficulties due to the speed of the door. Jotaro now notices that he's dried off, and Anasui, trying to stop an unbalanced rock from falling on Ermes, realizes that it's already fallen. Jolyne, looking at the already setting sun, realizes that things are going way more rapidly than usual.

While everyone decides to move away from the open space, Jotaro stops time with Star Platinum, managing to see the new Stand briefly. To Jotaro's dismay, time resumes before he could act. Anasui and the others pull Jotaro up a roof, and Anasui uses this moment to stupidly ask permission to marry Jolyne from her father, dumbfounding Jotaro to the point that he holds Jolyne in a protective manner away from him. Jotaro stops time and sees Pucci and his Stand Made in Heaven bending a palm tree to use it as a catapult, eventually thrown to the roof faster than Jotaro can react.

Due to his overwhelming speed advantage, Pucci mortally wounds Jotaro but Diver Down absorbs the damage. The roof is unsafe now and thus the heroes ties themselves together. Shooting a bullet while holding a replica of the bullet from Kiss, they are able to "fly" around but Pucci still pursues them. It is here that Anasui dooms the group and tells Emporio to shoot towards the sea where Pucci has supposedly nowhere to hide. During the flight, Anasui formulates his plan. With the heroes so close together, Diver Down can protect them all and shield them. The moment Pucci attacks, Jotaro will have an opportunity to retaliate. Seeing hope in this plan, Jolyne motivates Anasui by telling him that he can ask her to marry him after they survive this battle.

The Last Moments of Jotaro Kujo

Jotaro's death

In the water, the group realizes their mistake. The accelerating time causes a heavy tide and the waves block the view. Pucci manipulates Stone Free to kill Anasui and throws knives at Jolyne. Fearing for his daughter, Jotaro loses time pushing her aside. Time resumes before he can properly attack Pucci and the priest swiftly evades the attack. Pucci explains to Jotaro that the Joestar bloodline's greatness weakness is their own bonds and that in the end, Jotaro's weakness was his own daughter. Afterwards, Made in Heaven swiftly splits Jotaro's head in two.

In the anime adaptation, Jotaro weakly calls out to Jolyne before perishing, with the latter believing her father will save her no matter what.[61]

Once the universe continues its unstoppable acceleration, Jotaro's corpse rots in the ocean water.


When Pucci resets the universe and brings forth a new continuity, Jotaro and Jolyne were both replaced with alternate versions of themselves, with distinctly dissimilar faces and slightly altered appearances (i.e. "Jolyne"'s tattoo is a bee, "Jotaro"'s hat lacks the hand sign) from the originals. The two are in the middle of arguing about the daughter breaking out of jail, before being interrupted by the appearance of Emporio, having survived Pucci's assault, but being pursued by him.

Later, after Emporio defeats Pucci and the universe resets once more, a young woman named Irene (who retains Jolyne's soul) mentions her plans to visit her father to him when they meet. It is implied that Irene's unnamed father is Jotaro's alternate universe counterpart, retaining Jotaro's soul.

One-Way Trip from the Desert to Hell City

Oil tanker flying over the Joestar Group

After the fight with N'Doul, the Joestar Group is forced to traverse the desert on foot with little remaining water while being assaulted by the scorching heat and the blinding sunlight. Polnareff is incessantly complaining about the sunlight and his hoarse throat, much to Jotaro’s annoyance. Joseph shuts down Polnareff’s chatter and tells him not to waste his energy. Jotaro sympathizes with Polnareff; in such a desperate situation, it was crucial to keep the mind active. Kakyoin, who has been carried by Avdol for the past three days, suddenly moans out in pain. While Joseph treats Kakyoin’s wounds with whiskey, Jotaro tosses Polnareff his uniform and tells him to put it on, to which Polnareff reluctantly agrees. As the group rests, they pass around the remaining flask of water, emptying it completely.

On the horizon, they see a city, one of the numerous mirages they've seen in the past three days. They get up and continue walking. From the mirage, a black oil tanker begins moving through the sky towards them. It passes over them and disappears on the opposite side of the horizon. Polnareff begins to doubt his sanity, but Joseph points out that the water that has fallen from the ship is real. The group comes to the conclusion that they are being attacked by a Stand. On the same day, a fuel tank truck and a medieval European castle fly over them.

At night, the group is besieged by a sandstorm. As they continue walking, the wind becomes weaker, as if it's being blocked by a large object. To their surprise, that object turns out to be a working diesel locomotive. Joseph convinces his allies that they have no other choice but to board the train. Jotaro steps into the locomotive. The LED message panel lights up, saying that at the last stop, Hell City, they will be connected to an express train to Aswan, their destination. The rest of the group board the train.

The Joestar group encountering Satanic Coupler

As the train leaves, Jotaro inspects its insides for anything suspicious and notices an odd mismatch in its technology: the oustide is of a 60's model, the inside looks as if it was made in the 30's, while having an LED screen from the 80's. The train's driver, Absalom, introduces himself and his train, Satanic Coupler, through the speakers. The sandstorm stops an hour before arriving at their destination and is immediately replaced by a mirage, which manifests itself as countless pieces of the United States. The group's attempts to stop or escape the train prove to be in vain, as the train is in Absalom's full control. The Joestar group unleashes their Stands and begins pummeling the insides of the train. It was, however, to no success as the train morphed and expanded to cushion the blows. Kakyoin loses his patience and unleashes his Emerald Splash in spite of his teammates' protests. The emeralds bounce off the walls and hit Kakyoin and his allies, covering the floor with their blood. Kakyoin is guarded by Jotaro, who takes the full brunt of his attack. From Satanic Coupler emerge numerous tentacles, wrapping around the group and releasing a paralizing liquid. The walls of the train become transparent to reveal a nightmarish mirage of a city. Absalom, with uncharacteristic aggression, declares his desire to cruelly punish the civilized men before they die.

Satanic Coupler has already been moving through the city for several hours. After another announcement from Absalom, the tentacles, wrapped around the Joestar group, begin pumping out their blood, extracting information from their brains. The train begins to transform, becoming more modern. On top of that, Iggy’s perception of locomotives as monsters causes the train to grow horns and quills all over its surface. Jotaro and Polnareff coincidentally come up with the same plan; they begin pumping the Stand with advantageous information. The tentacles retract, and the fixed windows change into manual-opening windows. Jotaro and Polnareff escape successfully with Iggy, but Joseph, Avdol, and Kakyoin react too late, and the windows become fixed again. The three land safely on the pavement, using their Stands to cushion the fall. Satanic Coupler abruptly stops and begins moving towards them. They turn left into a narrow alley, followed by the train, smashing through the walls. Jotaro realizes that the ability to create mirages comes from another Stand user. He looks at the driver's cabin with Star Platinum and sees Michal sitting beside Absalom. They run into a dead end, so Jotaro tells Iggy to call out his Stand. He grabs The Fool as it extends its huge wings and steers it towards Satanic Coupler's cabin. The Fool crashes into the windshield, terrifying the woman into recalling her Stand. Jotaro and Polnareff, now surrounded by a desert, use their Stands to create a wave of sand which briefly engulfs the train. Absalom regains vision after two or three seconds, but the three are now out of his sight. He assumes that they went flying into the air with The Fool. Satanic Coupler vanishes beyond the line of the horizon in search of the three. Jotaro, Polnareff, and Iggy emerge from the sand, covered by Jotaro's uniform.

The three wander the desert until the sun sets. They arrive at the foot of a dune before collapsing from exhaustion. Jotaro sees an oddly familiar view: two hills and a bright star. It reminded him of The Little Prince, a book gifted to him by Holy, which he loved reading as a kid. Jotaro prepares to meet his end; his only regret being that he couldn't save his mother. He suddenly sees a little boy standing before him. He assumes him to be a hallucination of the Little Prince, but in reality, he was a young nomad. He notifies his village, and the men and the dog are brought there. They are offered water and food and quickly regained their physical and mental vigor. After thanking the elder, Jotaro tells him that they were looking for their friend, Absalom. The elder tells them that he lives on an oasis with his sister and mentions an accident that happened in Cairo. Suspecting DIO's involvement, Jotaro asks for more information. The old man tells about Absalom's past and his meeting with DIO.

Later, before bed, Jotaro and Polnareff discuss their plans and the story they heard from the elder. Polnareff complains about not being able to find his passcase, where he keeps girls’ phone numbers. Jotaro feels sympathetic towards Absalom, as his views and behavior are clearly a result of severe psychological trauma.

Jotaro, Polnareff, and Iggy receive some water and food from the old man and depart before sunrise. They see Satanic Coupler advancing towards them at full speed. They manage to dodge by a hair but are flung into the air by the shock wave. When they recover, Jotaro hears a terrified scream coming from Polnareff. He turns to see the "Little Prince" blocking the way of the train. With a loud thud, the boy is flung into the air before Absalom stops the train. A black object is dropped by the boy, which Polnareff identifies as his passcase. Jotaro tells the enraged Polnareff to bring the boy to the village, while he fights Absalom. Polnareff picks up the boy and heads to the oasis. Absalom charges at Jotaro. He throws himself on the ground to avoid the shockwave, Iggy hides in his pocket.

As the battle goes on, Jotaro's moves become slow, and the uniform is covered in tears and Jotaro's blood. Satanic Coupler manages to cut Jotaro's hand, causing him to cry out in pain. Absalom prepares to deal a killing blow but notices that there are two Jotaros. The one on the right looked slightly unusual, but Absalom, in his confusion, couldn't tell. They run in opposite directions, and Absalom unconsciously pushes the brakes. Absalom decides to pursue the Jotaro on the right since he has slower movements. When he was hit with the train's spikes, the right Jotaro splits in half and disintegrates into sand. Meanwhile, the real Jotaro had already reached the train's coupler and had now separated the locomotive from the passenger car. Absalom screams in desperation and stops the train with a turnabout. In a flash, the passenger car turns into a pile of steel beams with Joseph, Avdol, and Kakyoin. Smiling, they rush to Jotaro to thank him. Michal activates her Stand, Dark Mirage. Cisterns, factories, chimney stacks, intire office districts begin raining down, forming an industrial zone as maddening as the mirage-city. Following Joseph's suggestion, they run to the buildings in the newly formed industrial area.

Jotaro, Joseph, Avdol, and Kakyoin find themselves in the middle of a two-hundred-meter-long corridor, quietly anticipating the next attack. Satanic Coupler knocks down a wall and begins persuing the group, dodging their attacks by digging through the walls. While discussing their plan of action, Jotaro hears the train crashing through a wall 50 meters away from them and comes to the conclusion that Absalom is just hitting the hallway randomly. He suggests simply to run, to the surprise of his friends. After running about a hundred meters, they reach a stairway and, as per Avdol's suggestion, head to a warehouse. Avdol melts the door of the warehouse, and they get in. Satanic Coupler begins circling the warehouse, steadily coming closer. It makes a sharp turn towards them as they disperse. Joseph uses Hermit Purple to detach his prosthetic arm. When Satanic Coupler makes a turn, Joseph throws the arm under the wheels, spilling oil everywhere. Without any friction, the train couldn't move. Jotaro unleashes Star Platinum’s barrage of punches on the underside of Satanic Coupler. At the same time, Polnareff strikes Michal, which causes the mirage to dissolve completely.

Star Platinum's barrage against Satanic Coupler

Michal is unconscious, while Absalom is spitting out blood, not ready to give up. He reveals that he has sent a microscopic version of his Stand inside Avdol's body and that, if his psychic link with it ends, the boiler will explode. Jotaro shrinks Star Platinum and uses Star Finger to destroy the boiler. Absalom pukes out more blood and asks why they haven't killed him yet. Jotaro responds that he wants to give him a chance to redeem himself and mentions that, after they kill DIO, he and his sister will have nowhere to go. Suddenly the villagers appear, and, after witnessing the scene, the elder decides that the Joestar group are the subjects of a devil called Ababasubombo. He says that Absalom and Michal are very precious to them, so he and the other villagers drive them off.

On the evening of the fifth day, the Joestar group put an end to their battle. They continue their journey, heading to a city at the base of the mountains, ten kilometers away. They wonder what could be the cause of Absalom's hatred. Jotaro, touched lightly by a cool and damp breeze, turned around to realize how far he had traveled during those five days. Then he notices two dunes with a bright star above. Jotaro regrets turning around, realizing that the view was not at all unique. From the bottom of the hill, Polnareff tells Jotaro to get moving.

The Gravestone of Red-Hot Sand

Jotaro and Joseph discuss their next actions. Jotaro, ignoring Joseph’s suggestion to return to their hotel, heads into the crowd.

Night falls, Jotaro is looking for Joseph. He asks a street vendor if he's seen him, but, instead of answering directly, he tries to make Jotaro buy a bottle of perfume in exchange for the information. Jotaro caves in, so the vendor tells him about two foreigners entering an alley.

Jotaro facing off against the beast-goddess Ammit

The Scribe Ani is browsing The Genesis of Universe to find the right way to finish off Joseph, Polnareff, and Avdol. He then hears Jotaro's mocking voice behind him. In spite of Joseph's and Ani's warnings, he is sure that he'll be able to use Star Platinum before the old man finishes reading the selected passage to create another being. Unbeknownst to him, he had already summoned the beast-goddess Ammit under the road. Jotaro stumbles in the middle of a punch as the ground erupts beneath his feet, revealing the collosal demon Ammit. Star Platinum unleashes a barrage of fists on her, which proves to be completely ineffective; she doesn't budge even a little. But, while chasing Jotaro, Ammit disappears in a cloud of smoke. Ani, in utter disbelief, looks through the book and notices a hole. Joseph reveals that he and Polnareff, in their previous attack, damaged The Genesis of Universe on purpose. Ani, again, searches for the right passage while he's out of Jotaro’s range. Star Platinum acts quickly and throws a bottle of perfume at the old man, blinding him and giving Jotaro a chance to get close. Ani drops his Stand and starts rubbing his eyes. He tries to locate it on the ground, but it is already in Jotaro's hands. Under Star Platinum's flurry of punches, the old man and his Stand crumble into dust.

After being treated for their injuries, the Joestar group meets in a cafe. To Jotaro's great annoyance, Joseph brags to him about saving his life, with Polnareff chiming in to also take the credit. Avdol wonders about the identity of The Scribe Ani. After a long pause, Jotaro responds that it doesn't matter; he is now just sand in the desert.

In the light novel JORGE JOESTAR, Jotaro is mentioned to have killed DIO in Egypt like in the events of Stardust Crusaders. However, the DIO that Jotaro defeated is actually a vampire double that Dio Brando created.[62]

Eyes of Heaven

The story begins in the year 1988, in Egypt, as Jotaro fights and finally kills DIO on the Cairo Bridge. The following night, Jotaro discovers and burns a diary left behind by DIO, fearing a deeper meaning behind its contents. Jotaro, Joseph and Polnareff make their way to Cairo's airport and Polnareff leaves to return to his native France. As Jotaro and Joseph turn to join their flight to Japan, they are suddenly stopped by a young Robert E. O. Speedwagon. Moreover, Polnareff comes back, claiming to have been attacked on his airplane. Then, the thought-to-be-deceased Muhammad Avdol and Iggy reappear, but as hostiles enemies who say they were sent by a mysterious "him" to eliminate the heroes.

To avoid endangering civilians, the heroes fight on the rooftops of Cairo and win. Then, Noriaki Kakyoin and N'Doul also reappear despite having supposedly died early and attack the heroes. They are also beaten, and Speedwagon uses a part of a mysterious Saint's Corpse to restore Kakyoin's sanity, although N'Doul escapes. Speedwagon thus explains that the Saint's Corpse Part in his possession has led him through time in search of an unknown danger that is causing strange phenomena and slowly destroying the space-time continuum. The Joestar Group agrees to help the Englishman gather the remaining eight parts of the Saint's Corpse. The group quickly finds the Corpse's torso nearby, which is entrusted to Jotaro for safekeeping. Speedwagon then guides the heroes through a light rift that connects time periods and parallel worlds.

Jotaro and Speedwagon appear in Italy, 2001, at the Colosseum and meet Giorno, Mista and Trish who have just defeated Diavolo. They have to fend off a hostile Bruno Bucciarati, then Narancia with Fugo. Fugo escapes but Jotaro can restore Narancia with his Corpse Part. The group follows Bucciarati to the Naples Train Station where they fight him and Vanilla Ice. Giorno finds and secures the Head of the Saint's Corpse. From now on, the heroes also use Coco Jumbo the turtle and its Stand ability to travel in one room together to avoid being scattered.

Jotaro and Joseph then travel to Morioh in 1999. Joseph recognizes the town, but quickly changes the subject and walks off when Jotaro questions him. They meet and befriend Josuke Higashikata as well as Koichi Hirose. They are attacked by Okuyasu Nijimura and Rohan Kishibe but beat them. Jotaro can thus restore Rohan, but Okuyasu escapes. The group goes to Boyoyoing Cape. Jotaro and Josuke confront the brainwashed Shigechi and Akira Otoishi and beat them, but both escape. During a reprieve, Jotaro forces Joseph to tell him the truth about their relationship. Yukako Yamagishi attacks them, but she is beaten and escapes. Finally, the heroes are attacked by Enya the Hag and a group of zombies under her control. After they win the battle, Enya disappears. With the coast clear, Jotaro finds the Corpse's left arm and entrusts Josuke with it. Joseph then emerges from the turtle, revealing a camera he found inside. Via Joseph's Hermit Purple, the group finally glimpses their true enemy: the photo reveals none other than DIO himself, despite his certain death at Jotaro's hands.

The heroes traval to the year 1889 in the Joestar Mansion. Jotaro finds Jonathan Joestar, wounded after fighting off a horde of zombies to allow Speedwagon to find allies through space and time. Jotaro and Jonathan team up against the zombie horde and then a tag team between Dio Brando of this era and Diego Brando. Both are defeated and flee. The JoJos then have to fight Mariah and a revived yet brain-washed Will Anthonio Zeppeli, but the foes escape. As Jonathan collapses from exhaustion, Speedwagon returns the Corpse's eyes to him and accompanies him into the turtle.

Jotaro and Joseph travel to Air Supplena Island in 1939 where they meet Caesar Anthonio Zeppeli and Joseph's young self training. They are attacked by Lisa Lisa and Rudol von Stroheim but beat them. Stroheim escapes but Jotaro can restore Lisa Lisa, who remains unconscious for the moment. Caesar takes her inside the turtle. The heroes have to fend off Hol Horse who is defeated and flees. They are then attacked by the Pillar Men and an army of Vampires, but the older Joseph ultimately manages to bluff the Pillar Men into retreating by pretending the Red Stone of Aja is protected by a time bomb and they agree to fight in six days. Jotaro recovers the Corpse's ears and gives them to the younger Joseph.

Jotaro and co. travel again only to find themselves in a place where the floor has become a sheer cliff, gravity having been tempered with. They have arrived in 2011 at Kennedy Space Center in the middle of the fight against C-MOON. Jotaro spots Jolyne Cujoh and Emporio Alnino who are fighting Ermes Costello and Narciso Anasui who are brainwashed. They are happy to see Jotaro "back", but are stunned to discover it is a younger Jotaro from the past. Jotaro helps beat and restore Ermes and Anasui. Anasui becomes jealous because Jolyne seems close to him, but she explains Jotaro is her father, which surprises even Jotaro. Jotaro orders everyone in the turtle so that Joseph can bear the hassle of explaining everything. At this moment, Jotaro and Jolyne are attacked by a revived and evil Weather Report. They beat him but he escapes. Finally, they fight Enrico Pucci and Pet Shop. Despite Pucci's unsuccessful attack on the father-daughter duo, he announces his intent to guide the people of the world to eternal bliss through the true path to Heaven, which he dubs the "Eyes of Heaven." As he and Pet Shop depart, Pucci warns Jotaro that, once his group gathers the entire Saint's Corpse, "his friend" will draw open the curtains to Heaven himself.

Jotaro finds and entrusts the Right Arm of the Saint's Corpse to Jolyne. The group returns to Morioh and try to travel to another place through a light rift. However, Jotaro is strangely unable to enter the rift in spacetime. In fact, only Jonathan and Josuke can cross it. The rest of the group is trapped in Morioh. They soon meet Daniel J. D'Arby who is sitting at the Café Deux Magots. D'Arby coerces Jolyne into betting her soul on a coin flip and steals her soul when he wins. Jotaro discovers that D'Arby simply had a coin with tails on both sides. D'Arby then challenges Jotaro in order to get his revenge, but Jotaro eventually comes out on top and retrieves Jolyne's soul. Before disappearing, D'Arby warns Jotaro that "his" power is not to be trifled with. Jotaro deduces from Enya and Pucci's earlier clues that the true enemy's power has something to do with "overwriting the truth."

Jonathan and Josuke travel separately through space and time, and manage to retrieve two other corpse parts, and also bring back Johnny Joestar, Josuke from "JoJolion" as well as Joshu Higashikata to Morioh. Enya reappears and attacks the heroes, but she is beaten. However, she is strangely happy to know that the Joestars have collected eight corpse parts. Suddenly, everything begins to tremble as the reality around the group disappears into a celestial ocean. A figure approaches the group, proclaiming that their Corpse parts have reacted to the Corpse's spine and brought them to "the foundation of the world." The one speaking to them finally reveals himself: it is none other than DIO, though he bears a radically different appearance from his 1988 counterpart.

Somehow, DIO has managed to make his Stand even more powerful. It is now The World Over Heaven who can easily shrug off the powers of Tusk ACT4 and Gold Experience Requiem. Jotaro manages to wound it with Star Platinum but DIO still easily heals. After pummeling the three strongest Joestars away, DIO uses his own corpse part to draw the rest to him, absorbing the corpse parts and amplifying his power even further. Before DIO can eliminate the Joestars, however, light rifts appear at their feet. As his enemies escape, DIO realizes that he is missing one Corpse part: the torso, which remains in Jotaro's possession.

The Joestars escape back to Air Supplena Island. Suddenly, Funny Valentine reappears and challenges Jotaro to a fight, hoping to witness the power of Star Platinum. By doing so, Valentine realizes that Star Platinum and The World are the same type of Stand, even after their evolution, explaining why DIO was unable to take Jotaro's part of the Corpse. Valentine explains how during his travels through parallel worlds, he stumbled upon a version of DIO who wiped out the Joestars and evolved his Stand to its full potential, conquering reality itself. Valentine explains that he's working for DIO now, but that he wants to find a way to defeat him. He explains that no two same objects from the same universe cannot coexist because they will merge and disappear if they get too close. Thus, Valentine tells Jotaro to gather the original DIO's remains.

Jotaro returns to the Cairo of 1988, where he finds the bracelets of the original universe's DIO. Remembering Valentine's advice, Jotaro takes the bracelets in hopes that they might prove useful. Meanwhile, the other Joestars collect the Corpse Parts again. Jotaro and Jolyne follow the last Corpse part to the Joestar Mansion, where Pucci awaits him. Pucci, aware of what Jotaro is about to ask, states that there is nothing they can do against DIO's power, and that those foolish enough to oppose him will face Heaven's judgement. The priest sends a horde of zombies after the two, but they are quickly wiped out. Declaring his love for DIO one final time, Pucci throws himself from the second floor and impales himself on the Statue of the Goddess of Love, ending his life and preventing the group from uncovering DIO's weakness. Even with this setback, Jotaro retrieves the eyes of the Saint's Corpse.

The group finally returns to Egypt to confront Heaven-Attained DIO. Jotaro and Johnny face DIO in battle, where he demonstrates his power over space and time, including the power to turn his enemies against themselves. Despite all odds, the two seemingly defeat him, only for DIO to immediately heal his wounds. DIO additionally reveals that he discreetly marked Coco Jumbo with The World Over Heaven during the battle, thus obtaining power over all of those inside the turtle. As Jotaro and Jolyne stay behind to battle DIO once more, the other Joestars and Speedwagon use the light rifts to track down and restore their allies. However, Giorno realizes too late that DIO's true plan was to separate the Joestars and their allies from Jotaro and Jolyne, allowing him to overwrite the group and absorb their souls at full power, along with the complete Saint's Corpse. DIO, who now holds the power to rewrite the universe itself to his liking, strikes Jotaro decisively and proclaims his complete victory... and yet Jotaro remains standing. To the surprise of both DIO and Jolyne, Star Platinum has evolved into Star Platinum Over Heaven and countered DIO's ability, being the same type of Stand as DIO's. With their hope reinforced, the Kujos make one final stand against DIO.

Despite his defeat, DIO simply heals his wounds once more before killing Jolyne and absorbing her soul. DIO approaches a wounded Jotaro and prepares to finally eradicate the Joestar family for good. At the last moment, Jotaro remembers Valentine's advice and reveals the original DIO's bracelets, which fuse with Heaven-Attained DIO's bracelets and destroy his hands, putting The World Over Heaven's ability out of commission. Though DIO blinds Jotaro with his own blood, Jotaro finishes DIO with one final barrage, destroying him completely and putting a definite end to his menace. The souls DIO has absorbed leave his body as Jotaro's view is engulfed by light.

Jotaro finds himself in Cairo, at the moment after he burned DIO's diary. Joseph and Polnareff catch up to him, informing him that Avdol, Iggy, and Kakyoin are resting in the hospital. The three make their way to the city's airport, where Polnareff parts ways with the two Joestars to stay behind and take care of his friends. As they leave for Japan, Jotaro and Joseph promise to return to Egypt one day once their friends fully recover. As the game draws to a close, it is revealed that the Joestars and their friends in other eras have survived as well, a brighter timeline having come about despite all of the hardships they have faced.
