|~ Josuke's Stand cry|
Josuke Higashikata is the main protagonist of Diamond is Unbreakable.
Josuke is a high school freshman residing in the town of Morioh. He soon meets Jotaro Kujo, who informs him that he is Joseph Joestar's illegitimate son. He takes it upon himself to protect his town from villainous Stand users.
He was voiced by Wataru Hatano, later Yuuki Ono in Japanese Version and Billy Kametz in the English dub.
Josuke is generally a docile, harmless and a pacifist... until someone insults his pompadour hairstyle. Upon hearing the insult, Josuke loses all restraint and rationale and unleashes his feral and violent persona. While angry, Josuke may not fix things 100% perfectly.
Josuke was born in 1983. His parents are Joseph Joestar and Tomoko Higashikata, though Joseph would remain unaware of his son's existence until 1999.
When he was young, Josuke and his mother were stuck in a blizzard, but were saved by a man with a pompadour. Josuke inspired his hairstyle after this man, and took offence whenever his hair got insulted.
Diamond is Unbreakable
Jotaro finds out that Josuke exists and because so he goes to Morioh to find him and tell him that he gets part of Joseph's will. After meeting Jotaro everything in Morioh goes to hell and now there's a bunch of malevolent stand users running around the place. Josuke gets to partake in riding Morioh of these Stand users.
They eventually come across the big killer in Morioh; Yoshikage Kira. They spend the last couple of episodes trying to find out who Kira is but fail because Bites the Dust exists.
Eventualy, Kira is cornered by the people of Morioh and Jotaro uses Star Platinum's The World to prevent Kira from using Bites the Dust and then Kira gets ran over by an ambulance. After the death of Kira life pretty much goes back to normal for Josuke.
- According to Araki, as of Steel Ball Run, Josuke is his favorite "JoJo". He explains that because of the general everyday neighborhood setting of Part 4, he felt more attached to Josuke, and considered him somewhat like a friend or a senior. In contrast, Jotaro was "more of someone you would admire as a hero".
- Josuke is the JoJo with the smallest killing spree, with only killing Angelo, Bug-Eaten and Yoshihiro Kira (indirectly).
