Jojo's Bizarre Adventures: All Known Joestars, Ranked In Terms Of Strength (2023)

Jojo's Bizarre Adventures, an action-packed adventure series officially released in 2012, has been a hit with every new season/part. Presently, the series is divided into eight parts in the manga while featuring six animated parts. Jojo has an incredibly loyal and passionate fan base, which isn’t surprising, following the show’s superb plot.

The first part of the series opened, placing Dio – an undying character who was the mortal enemy of the Joestars as the main villain. Later on, the trans-generational series evolved from the Dio-Joestars conflict initially spiked by Hamon control, to the battle between Stands – the external manifestations of the user’s life energy. Among Stand users, the Joestars dominate the top. Here’s a list of every Jojo main character, ranked in terms of their strength and abilities.

8 Jonathan Joestar – Hamon User

Jonathan Joestar is the first protagonist of the Jojo series; he was a selfless man constantly geared towards doing the right things. Raised with his malicious adopted brother, Dio, Jonathan still tried to go along with him without hating him. Even after Dio committed the heinous act of killing George Joestar, his father, Jonathan's retributory actions were not lined with hatred or malice but with a justice-inclined affirmation that Dio must be eliminated.

Out of all the Jojo protagonists, Jonathan stands out in terms of nobility, inspiring even Speedwagon, a former thug. Another notable feature of Jonathan is his undisputable physical strength, exceeding any Joestar protagonist. Furthermore, his battle wits were impressive; he managed to defeat Dio, a vampire, using half-baked Hamon techniques he hadn't fully mastered. Unfortunately, Jonathan ranks the lowest in terms of overall power since he wasn't a Stand user.

7 Joseph Joestar – Hamon & Hermit Purple

After Jonathan's death, resulting from his self-sacrifice, his son, Joseph Joestar, took the Jojo stage. Still, in the same Jojo part, Jonathan Joestar was introduced with his incredible Hamon skill. Unlike his father, Joseph was properly trained in Hamon usage, allowing him to defeat Wamuu, one of the major secondary antagonists. Unlike any other Joestar, in battle, Joseph relies on cunning tricks and even dirty play, a stark difference from his noble-minded father.

Regardless, his crafty actions aided his escape from many near-death situations. In JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Joseph was shown to have manifested his own Stand, Hermit Purple, which turned out to be a weak Stand. Still, Joseph was the only character that could expertly use Hamon and a Stand.

6 Josuke Higashitaka – Crazy Diamond

Josuke Higashitaka is the central protagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable. Part 4 presented Higashitaka Josuke as the illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar. Usually, Josuke is a calm kid who rarely blows up, except when his questionable hairstyle is the center of discussion. After Josuke’s somewhat quiet town is portrayed to be a nest for evil Stand Users, Josuke takes it on himself to rid the town of these villains.

Josuke’s stand “Crazy Diamond," which debuted in Chapter 266 of the manga, possesses powerful physical strength, surpassing most Stands in the series. However, the Stand's classic ability is not its immense strength or speed but its ability to restore objects and people back to their original state, like a reverse-time ability skill.

5 Jolyne Cujoh – Stone Free

The central character of currently airing, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 6: Stone Ocean is none other than Jolyne Cujoh, the daughter of Kujo Jotaro. As a child, Jolyne was constantly neglected by her father, Jotaro, who concentrated solely on his work. This factor spurred Jolyne into becoming a juvenile delinquent. However, she changed for the better until an accident involving Romeo, her date.

The whole situation escalates, and Jolyne is thrown into prison, where she manifests her Stand: Stone Free. Similar to Jotaro's Stand, Stone Free is a powerful and versatile stand that gives Jolyne a wide range of choices during battle. The Stand's speed supersedes bullet movements, and its destructive power is unique even among Strength-based stands. In addition, Stone Free’s strings offer a wide range of functions such as pickpocketing, eavesdropping, and entrapment.

4 Josuke Higashitaka/Gappy – Soft & Wet

Josuke Hishagitaka, who shares a similar name with “Diamond is Unbreakable," is the main protagonist of Jojolion. In Jojolion, Josuke, the son of Josefunmi Kujo and Yoshikage Kira, is depicted as an amnesic, lacking any memories of his identity or past life. This makes the story interesting since Gappy's past is shrouded in mystery, and he constantly tries to uncover the truth his memories hold.

Despite Josuke's shortcoming, his Stand Soft & Wet is among the strongest in the Jojo franchise. Josuke’s Soft & Wet possesses formidable destructive strength, with a wide range of support-oriented abilities, and is efficient and deadly during close-range battles. Soft and Wet's signature ability is to steal properties from an object or organism, ranging from sound and smell to even friction.

3 Johnny Joestar – Tusk Act 1, 2, 3 & 4

Although Johnny Joestar isn’t as popular as other Jojo Protagonists, he is the main character of Steel Ball Run and a powerful Stand user. Johnny Joestar is the seventh Jojo protagonist in the series; he manifested his Stand, Tusk, during an SBR race to discover whether the Gryo's Steel Balls could heal his legs. Johnny's Tusk is graded into four different acts. The higher the Act, the stronger.

Tusk Stand operates using Spinning Nails. Act 1 allows Johnny to use the Spinning Nails kike high-speed bullets and blades. However, the Stand becomes deadly in the Act 3 stage, creating a dimensional wormhole that disintegrates anything that enters it. In the Act 4 stage, Tusk's ability peaks, allowing Johnny to move freely within a time-stop for up to four seconds.

2 Kujo Jotaro – Star Platinum

Among all the Jojo protagonists, Kujo Jotaro is undeniably the most popular with his swagger and self-confidence, which is evident during fights. Kujo Jotaro, the ace of Jojo's Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders, is the grandson of Joseph Joestar. Jotaro’s Star Platinum's immense strength ranks above any Stand in the Jojo Franchise.

Coupled with his high-level intelligence and advanced battle sense, Star Platinum makes Jotaro an almost-impossible opponent to defeat, even with powerful Stands. Star Platinum’s strongest ability, similar to Dio’s The World, can freeze time, giving him an edge over most Stands.

1 Giorno Giovanna – Gold Experience & Gold Experience Requiem

Jojo's Bizarre Adventures: All Known Joestars, Ranked In Terms Of Strength (8)

Giorno Giovanna is the main protagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 5: Golden Wind, released in 2018. The plot features a mafia-oriented setting, where the main characters are trying to uncover the head of Passione’s true identity. Giorno’s Stand, Gold Experience was a versatile one, with the god-like ability to create and manipulate life.

In terms of offense-based attacks, Gold Experience wasn’t really an extraordinary Stand. However, this changed after Giorno jabbed the Stand with the unique arrow that births Stands, upgrading it to Gold Experience Requiem. Gold Experience Requiem has a frightening ability, which reverts any action back to zero. In other words, it tweaks reality.
