A pack of Tarot cards

Tarot (タロット Tarotto) refers to a deck of cards which determine an individual's fate and suggests their Stand abilities, featured in the third part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders.[1]

Standard tarot decks consist of 78 cards. However, Stardust Crusaders only features Stands based on the Major Arcana set of tarot decks, consisting of 22 cards. Each card has a deep meaning, which changes depending on whether the card is in the normal position or in the opposite position (upside down).

Summary

The tarot cards in Stardust Crusaders each have their own designs and symbolism which may relate to the Stand abilities. They were all designed by Hirohiko Araki, appearing similarly to real tarot cards but in Araki's own style. Muhammad Avdol first mentions the tarot cards to Jotaro Kujo so that he can determine Jotaro's destiny and name his Stand after Jotaro draws a card.[1] Throughout their journey to Egypt, the Joestar group is attacked by various tarot Stand users sent by Enya the Hag.

With the exception of Vanilla Ice's Cream, Kenny G.'s Tenore Sax, and the Egypt 9 Glory Gods, all of the remaining Stands are based on the tarot cards. However, the Nine Gods of Egypt also have unique cards which are displayed when the Stand user is introduced.

The tarot cards have been sold as merchandise in Adventure Battle Card. They were also included with DVDs for the Stardust Crusaders OVA and as a limited edition bonus in the Volume 2 Blu-Ray of Stardust Crusaders - Battle in Egypt.
