Hero Overview

Good grief...
~ Jotaro's catchphrase, better known as "Yare Yare Daze..." in Japanese.
Ora Ora Ora Ora Ora Ora ORA!
~ Jotaro as Star Platinum unleashes a barrage of punches, also known a "Stand Rush".
When the sun comes out, you'll be nothing but dust. You only made one mistake, the one that got you killed. DIO, there's whole thing I might end differently, but...you went and pissed me off. Was it worth it?
~ Jotaro after killing DIO for good.

Jotaro Kujo is the overall main protagonist of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga and anime series. He is a cameo character in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tedency, the main protagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, the deuteragonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable, a minor character in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo, and the tritagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean. He is also the main protagonist of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven video game.


Jotaro has been played by the following voice actors:

  • Kiyoyuki Yanada in the drama CD adaption of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders and in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future
  • Jūrōta Kosugi in the OVA.
  • Daisuke Ono in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle,JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, and the anime.
  • Natsumi Takamori as a child.
  • Yūsuke Iseya in the live-action movie adaptation of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.
  • Abie Hajtarkani in the English dub of the OVA.
  • Matthew Mercer in the English dub of the anime.


Jotaro is a tall, handsome, and well-built man. He has short, black hair, a strong jaw, bold eyebrows, and light eyes. He also bears a mild resemblance to his great-great grandfather Jonathan Joestar and his grandfather Joseph Joestar when he was a young man.

The superficial theme of Jotaro's attire changes in each successive part. His trademarks are a visored, ornamented cap, torn at the back and blending with his hair, and a roughly mid-calf-length coat with a standing collar.


Look, nobody ever said Jotaro Kujo was a nice guy. I beat the crap outta people, more than I have to. Some are even still in the hospital. I've had idiot teachers who like to talk big, so I taught them a lesson, and they never came back to class. If I go to a restaurant and the food is bad, I make it a policy to stiff 'em with the bill. But, even a bastard like me... can spot true evil when he sees it! 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 to a brainwashed Noriaki Kakyoin.

Jotaro has a tough exterior, introduced as even rather rough and delinquent. In truth however, he is dedicated, fair, and loyal. He is highly perceptive, intelligent and quick-witted, while keeping a perpetually cool, slightly neutral or disinterested attitude.

Two of Jotaro's schoolmates and the school nurse affirm that it seems impossible to best him in a fight. After gaining Star Platinum, this trait easily carries over to his encounters with new Stand users. The only exception being Enrico Pucci, who was the only one who could kill him after gaining Made in Heaven.

Jotaro loves his mother and respects his grandfather, although he may not be overt about it. It is not that he is unaware of his own love and/or respect - rather, he thinks anyone can tell his emotions just by looking at him, and probably thinks further effort in portraying how he feels to be a waste of time.

Jotaro is both fierce and gentle, and he shows these traits in various scenes, from the fight with N'Doul to the encounters with the D'Arby brothers. One shining example is how he spared Noriaki Kakyoin, instead of destroying him outright, even putting his own life in the line just to save Kakyoin from DIO's deadly slavery.

Jotaro is occasionally chased by adoring girls, including his classmates; whom he ignores or drives away; particularly when they begin to fuss or bicker.

He is DIO's main target, who acknowledges that Jotaro is his greatest threat. Apparently key to Jotaro's perceived chance of success in his final battle with Dio is the extent to which DIO is able to anger him.


Jotaro was born in Japan and was supervised much by his mother Holly Kujo. When he reached his teenage years, he began to go more tough. After badly beating up four gang members, he turned himself to the police. While in jail, he showed his danger by attempting to shoot himself, but an arm inside him stopped him. After Joseph Joestar failed to get his grandson out of jail, his friend Muhammad Avdol had no choice but to force him out. Joseph then reveals that Jotaro was in possession of a stand named "Star Platinum". On one of his school days, Jotaro was suddenly attacked by a young man named Noriaki Kakyoin and his stand "Hierophant Green". Jotaro then realized that Kakyoin was possessed by the Joestars' old enemy, Dio Brando (now renamed "DIO"), because of a flesh bud that Jotaro managed to bravely pull out. When Holly was developing an out-of-control stand, Jotaro realized that to save his mother, he had to kill DIO. The heroes then journeyed all the way to Egypt, fighting through many obstacles DIO threw at them. In Egypt, DIO manages to kill most of the Stardust Crusaders, but Jotaro, now in possession of the Time Stop ability, kills DIO and saves his family from annihilation.

Sometime after the final battle in Egypt, Jotaro visits the town of Morioh to visit his uncle Josuke Higashikata. In the town, he fears an outbreak of stand users popping up all over the town. While Akira Otoishi was originally thought to be the villain, he eventually finds out that it is actually a serial killer by the name of Yoshikage Kira.

Before Giorno Giovanna's adventure in Italy, Jotaro sends Koichi Hirose in his place to procure a sample of Haruno Shiobana for the Speedwagon Foundation. Five years later, his daughter, Jolyne Cujoh was framed for pickpocketing. Jotaro's wife calls him to come help bail her out but he refuses and hangs up because he had to go to Tokyo for an emergency. Due to his busy lifestyle, he divorced from his wife.

Despite the lage gap between his relationship between Jotaro and his daughter, he still cares about his daughter. When she was imprisoned for a crime she didn't commit, Jotaro learned of Johngalli A's link with DIO and comes to Green Dolphin Street prison to have Jolyne escape, aware that it is a trap. However he and Jolyne are attacked by Johngalli A and his Stand Whitesnake which 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.

For most of it afterwards, Jotaro is left in a coma waiting for Jolyne to give him back his Memory DISC. However when Jotaro is given back his Memory DISC, he managed recover and later saved his daughter from being shot by Pucci. 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. During the final struggle, Star Platinum's time stop becomes the only asset enabling the heroes to reach Pucci. Protected by Diver Down, Jotaro tried to stop time at the right moment, when Pucci would attack. Unfortunately, Pucci exploited his love for his daughter and during the crucial time stop, Jotaro realized that Pucci let knives fall down on Jolyne, echoing the method that DIO once tried to kill Jotaro himself with. Jotaro lost time pulling her away, and couldn't hit Pucci, who cut his face in half and killed him. Due to the effects of accelerated time from Made in Heaven, his body, along with Ermes' and Anasui's, quickly rot and disintegrate.

Powers and Abilities

Star Platnium

Look at you. You're pathetic. I have zero sympathy for your sorry ass. But. If I kill you while you're helpless, that'll leave a bad taste in my mouth. How long will it take for you to heal? Three seconds? Four seconds? As soon as you heal, Star Platinum will split your head open all over the street! So heal!
~ Jotaro Kujo on Star Platnium to DIO.

One of the strongest Stands in the series beside the other protagonists, Star Platinum possesses superhuman senses, strength, stamina, accuracy and speed. Like other physically powerful (or Close-Range) Stands, Star Platinum suffers from a narrow range of activity; active only within a 2-3 meter radius from Jotaro. It is similar to Dio Brando's The World, and, as it turns out, can likewise be used to stop time; an ability revealed at the very end of his fight with Dio. The Tarot card The Star, after which it is named, symbolizes hope above all.

Star Platinum: The World is the evolved version of Star Platinum which first appears near the end of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders during the climactic battle against DIO and is the highest form to which Jotaro is shown to develop his Stand. Star Platinum: The World can stop time for as long as five seconds. It is stated that it can freeze time for longer, but five seconds is the limit for human endurance under stopped time.


  • Due to being the most recurring Jojo and having a major role or importance in every story he appears in, Jotaro is effectively the protagonist of the entire series.
