JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (2023)

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is an epic shonen/seinen series written by Hirohiko Araki. The series is divided into several parts, and each part focuses on a different protagonist and antagonist. Currently, Araki is writing part 7, or JoJolion. Though the manga isn't finished, plenty of fans still love the series for what it currently offers.

Like many popular anime, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has its own power system. For the first two parts, Hamon was the preferred power, but Araki later changed it to what are known as Stands. Each Stand is unique, and has a distinct ability that separates them from the others. However, not all are created equal — some Stands are more powerful than others.

Updated on November 22, 2022, by Suzail Ahmad: With JoJolion finally reaching its conclusion, JoJo fans have been waiting for Araki to start working on his next work. There are rumors that it won't be long before the next part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure starts serializing. A new part means new characters and Stands. Araki has already shown that he is a creative genius, so it will be rather interesting to see what new powers he comes up with. Fans of the series are always looking forward to seeing new potent Stands. In the eight parts that have been finished, Araki has designed some very powerful Stands. While each Stand bears a unique power, not all of them can claim to be powerful Stands. So, here are some of the strongest Stands in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

20 Vitamin C

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (1)
  • Can liquefy individuals

Vitamin C is a unique-looking Stand that belongs to Tamaki Damo. The Stand has multiple hands, which not only gives it a cool appearance but also allows the Stand to leave fingerprints on several surfaces.

Any individual who comes in contact with these fingerprints has their body softened. They lose their rigidity, causing them to liquefy, and turn into a puddle of flesh. The targets are left completely defenseless and at the mercy of Damo, who can take his time torturing them. The biggest shortcoming of the Stand is its limited range. If a person manages to leave its vicinity, they immediately turn back to normal.

19 Diver Down

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (2)
  • Can Restructure solids
  • Store attacks on surfaces

Diver Down is the Stand of Anasui, who is an important character in Stone Ocean. The Stand has a limited range, but makes up for it with its incredible physical abilities. Diver Down has two special powers that make it among the best Stands in the series.

It can store its strikes on any surface, and they can be released on Anasui's commands. This is an effective method of catching opponents off guard. The other ability of the Stand is to phase through solids and rearrange them completely.

18 Soft and Wet

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (3)
  • Powerful physically
  • Works with spin that produces special bubbles

Soft and Wet is the Stand of Josuke Higashikata. It is strong in melee combat, and it can dominate most Stands in a physical fight. Soft and Wet can create bubbles that can steal away properties of other objects.

The Stand also has some qualities of Yoshikage Kira's Stand, so it can produce minor explosions with the help of the bubbles. Finally, the most powerful attribute of the Stand is its ability to create bubbles that go beyond regular physics. These bubbles spin at an incredible speed which makes them "non-existent" and allows them to bypass the defenses of Stands such as Wonder of U.

17 Green Day

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (4)
  • Produces mold that can destroy an entire city

Green Day belongs to Cioccolata, a member of Passione. He was originally a doctor, who performed sick and sordid experiments on his patients. Even Diavolo was cautious about sending him on a mission.

Cioccolata's Green Day is a close-range Stand that can wipe out entire cities in no time. The Stand produces mold, which starts to attack any living thing which moves from a high to low altitude. Even seemingly innocuous activities, such as picking up keys, can be fatal.

16 Wonder of U

  • ​​​​​Manipulates calamities
  • Cannot be attacked

Wonder of U has a case of being the strongest Stand in the series. It is a sentient Stand that can function on its own. Wonder of U possesses a number of abilities that make it an extremely dangerous stand. It can create illusions of itself, which can confuse the target.

However, the biggest strength of the Stand is its ability to manipulate calamities. Any person who harbors any kind of negative intentions toward the Stand is affected by calamities. To activate the Stand, a person must have looked at its back, while it was in its human form.

15 White Album

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (6)
  • Can freeze things instantly
  • Increases the user's strength and speed

White Album is arguably one of the most underrated Stands in the series and was wielded by Ghiaccio, a member of the Hitman Squad. Instead of appearing separately as most Stands, White Album appears as a suit that covers Ghiaccio's entire body.

The Stand is able to freeze anything in its surroundings. While using Gently Wipes, it can bring the temperature down to -251°C, and at this point, can freeze air itself. Furthermore, White Album also increases Ghiaccio's strength and speed. The only real weakness of the Stand is that it has an open hole at the back of its neck.

14 Cream

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (7)
  • Capable of erasing anything from existence
  • Protects the user from harm

Vanilla Ice was one of the penultimate villains in Stardust Crusaders. His stand, Cream is among the most lethal Stands in the series. The Stand allows the user to enter its mouth, where they remain safe from any potential harm. Within its mouth lies a different dimension, and anything except the user will be consumed and disintegrated by its power.

The only real drawback of this Stand is that the user can't see what's going on outside unless they take their head out of the stand's mouth.

13 Heaven's Door

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (8)
  • Can make opponents obey every command

Heaven's Door is the Stand of Kishibe Rohan, one of the main characters in Diamond is Unbreakable. The Stand has incredible potential for growth. With Heaven's Door, Rohan is able to learn about his opponent's strengths and weaknesses.

He can even write commands on the bodies of his opponents, which will be carried out as long as they are within the limits of the human body. However, the Stand lacks the physical strength to fight against other close-range Stands, and a person who is blinded by emotions won't be affected by Rohan's power.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (9)
  • Grants invisibility
  • Allows the user to manipulate magnetic metals

Risotto Nero's Metallica is different from most of the Stands in the series, as it operates in colonies. The Stand has the power to manipulate iron using magnetism.

Risotto uses his stand to manipulate iron inside the target's body, creating sharp objects. Using up iron inside the target's body causes the hemoglobin levels to plummet, resulting in a slow and agonizing death. Metallica can also turn its user invisible by sticking iron particles on their body, which causes the body to reflect light. It's an incredibly versatile Stand, which is a big part of what makes it powerful.

11 ​​​​Bohemian Rhapsody

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (10)
  • Huge range of attack
  • Brings fictional characters into reality

There is no better Stand at causing untold chaos than Bohemian Rhapsody. The stand's range is astounding; it is capable of affecting the entire world with its power. The Stand can bring fictional characters to life with its power.

Any person who meets a character that they adore ends up being dragged into the character's story. There is no other way to defeat Bohemian Rhapsody except for creating a fictional character that would eliminate the other fictional characters, and thus effectively canceling the Stand's power.

10 Killer Queen

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (11)
  • Creates two types of bombs
  • Capable of creating time loops

Killer Queen belongs to Yoshikage Kira, the main antagonist of the arc Diamond is Unbreakable. The Stand isn't the strongest in terms of physical power, but it overcomes this shortcoming with its unique ability to create bombs by touching the surface of an object or a person.

Killer Queen has two types of bombs: Sheer Heart Attack, a long-range bomb; and Bites The Dust, which Kira can plant inside the body of another individual. The latter stays inside the body of the individual, and explodes when Kira's identity is revealed. The explosion creates a time loop, rewinding time by half an hour.

9 Notorious B.I.G

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (12)
  • Stand activates after user's death
  • Absorbs energy to grow

Notorious B.I.G is an autonomous Stand that can function even after its user's death. The Stand activates once the user expires, and then it feeds off energy to grow in size. It can also absorb Stand energy, which makes it immune to Stand attacks.

The Stand can be impaled and diced into smaller pieces, but due to its power of regeneration, it cannot die. However, Notorious B.I.G is not unbeatable, and it can be bypassed since it doesn't have a user.

8 The World

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (13)
  • Can stop time

The World is a powerful Stand that belongs to DIO, who has some of the most iconic poses in the anime, making him easy to identify. The Stand boasts of a very high offensive power, which gives it the edge in a 1v1.

The World is among the few stands that have the ability to stop time. DIO was able to stop time for a maximum of nine seconds in Stardust Crusaders, and he admitted that this duration would continue to increase over time. The ability to control time is immensely powerful in any universe, making this Stand hard to contend with.

7 Star Platinum

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (14)
  • Incredibly strong in close combat
  • Can briefly stop time

The best-known Stand in the series, Star Platinum belongs to Jotaro Kujo, one of the main characters in the show. Star Platinum outshines most other Stands in the series in terms of speed and power.

The Stand has incredible precision and eyesight, which allows it to carry out attacks that are nigh impossible for others. In addition to its incredible physical prowess, Star Platinum can also stop time for five seconds — always an incredible feat.

6 King Crimson

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (15)
  • Predicts the future and erases time

King Crimson is the Stand of Diavolo, Passione's former boss. The Stand has two overwhelming abilities that can end a fight in a matter of seconds. The first is Epitaph, which allows the user to predict the future, giving them an incredible advantage.

The second is its ability to erase time. With this power, Diavolo can dodge any kind of attack and immediately put himself in a position of advantage. Then, with the physical strength of the Stand, Diavolo can easily kill his opponent with one well-placed attack.

5 Weather Report

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (16)
  • Manipulates weather
  • The Heavy Weather ability affects almost everyone

Weather Report is the Stand of Enrico Pucci's brother, Domenico Pucci. It is one of the most versatile Stands, as it provides its user with an array of options both while attacking and defending. Weather Report has the ability to manipulate weather, which can prove to be a real handful in battle.

Furthermore, the Stand has another ability known as Heavy Weather. This activated when Weather regained his memories from Enrico Pucci. Heavy Weather uses the natural subliminal effect to turn people into snails. The only way to counter this wild ability is to kill Weather Report.

4 Made In Heaven

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (17)
  • Can create a new universe
  • Can speed up time

Enrico Pucci had to toil a lot in order to evolve his Whitesnake into the "ultimate" Stand, Made in Heaven. Now, this Stand has the power to control gravity, which allows it to move at astounding speeds.

Made in Heaven can speed up time, which also speeds up non-biological phenomena. This can prove fatal for people living in dangerous environments. This ability can also counter Star Platinum's time stop ability, thus effectively nullifying the latter's power.

3 Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (18)
  • Creates infinite copies of its user
  • Interdimensional travel
  • Misfortune redirection

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, or D4C, is the Stand of the 23rd President of the United States, Funny Valentine. The Stand's ability allows Valentine to travel through multiple dimensions. If his original body sustained any serious injuries, Funny Valentine could just replace it with his counterpart from another dimension.

This ability to replace his damaged body with a new one essentially made him immortal. The Stand's power further increased when Valentine gathered all the parts of the Saint's Corpse. With the power of the corpse, D4C was able to redirect any misfortune that was aimed toward Funny Valentine, effectively rendering him invulnerable.

2 Tusk Act IV

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (19)
  • Attacks have infinite energy

Tusk Act IV is the result of Johnny Joestar growing in power over time. It is one of the few Stands that have different acts/forms. Tusk Act IV is the strongest form of the Stand and utilizes the Golden Spin for its attacks.

The Stand arguably has the highest offensive power, as each attack has limitless energy. In one episode, a single attack from Act IV trapped Funny Valentine, preventing him from escaping. The spin can bypass any dimensional barrier and can bypass the time-stop ability as well.

1 Gold Experience Requiem

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 20 Strongest Stands In The Series (20)
  • No attack can harm the user

Gold Experience Requiem belongs to Giorno Giovanna. Giorno managed to awaken its true power after piercing his Gold Experience with the Stand Arrow, resulting in a massive boost to the Stand's power.

Gold Experience Requiem has all the abilities of Gold Experience, as well as the added capacity to revert any action that can possibly harm Giorno. This was demonstrated in the fight against Diavolo, where Diavolo tried to attack Giorno, but all of his actions were reverted to zero.
