13 Joseph Joestar's Hamon Meme
Meme by Ketchem1985.
Joseph Joestar serves as the main protagonist of Battle Tendency, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's part 2, while also appearing as a supporting character in the two subsequent sagas. Joseph is one of the most beloved characters in the franchise, and a lot of that comes down to his approachable and often goofy nature.
Joseph's personality juxtapositions perfectly with Jotaro's no-nonsense approach to life. While one is unapologetically exaggerated, the other maintains an unshakeable facade in the face of nearly any obstacle thrown his way. Naturally, that includes a (gran)dad joke.
12 Farewell Free Time Meme
Meme uploaded by u/Norbaitek.
Free time is limited, particularly as you get older. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a massive series. The 2012 anime has produced 152 episodes and it's nowhere close to being done, with Stone Ocean already confirmed to be on the way. If that's not enough JoJo for someone, there is always the older show to check out and the manga to read; in fact, the latter should be prioritized as it's consistently fantastic.
With video games, movies, Western TV shows, anime, and so many other hobbies fighting for attention, something will have to eventually give way. However, that something is never JoJo.
11 Everything Is A JoJo Reference Meme
Meme uploaded by u/luigi77714.
Everything is a JoJo reference. This is known. The franchise's fanbase is passionate, so much so that many people are constantly seeking to find the hidden JoJo in every facet of the world. Even if something predates the creation of the manga, such as King Crimson's The Court of the Crimson King, this just means the creators were getting in their JoJo reference ahead of time.
Understandably, it can get tiring to be constantly living in a universe so JoJo forward. In such instances, it can be refreshing to just take something at face value and ignore the obvious reference to the manga.
10 Puberty Meme
It’s a tough job making a good meme that will stand the test of being compared to other memes online. It also takes a special mind to take two entirely different pieces of art and find a way to join them together in a funny meme. Which makes this Spongebob Squarepants and JoJo meme so much funnier because they fit so well.

The joke of the meme is that Plankton has hit puberty and now looks like the Foo Fighters from JoJo, which is funny on its own. But fans of JoJo will appreciate the meme so much more because Foo Fighters is a character comprised of a colony of plankton. It’s a clever combination that works for those who have never seen the show but adds something special for those who have, which makes this an awesome meme.
9 Polnareff Studying Meme
We’ve all been there, you’ve achieved that rare balance in college where you have a social life, your job is going well, and you have decent grades. Then the end of the semester hits and all your professors are ready to test just how much you learned. Sometimes we put it off, sometimes we forget, but when that dreaded day of exams is just around the corner, we all want to find a corner and weep.
This meme is effective for being funny, but also a little painful when those awful memories of long sleepless nights and stress-filled mornings resurface.
8 Running (Or At Least Trying To Run)
This meme hits home for practically everyone in January with a fitness resolution, February if we haven’t secured a date for Valentine's day, and May when we think about all that time we’ll spend on the beach and we aren’t sure we’d look all that great in our swimwear.
For whatever reason, we try running and immediately end up like this poor soul and wind up flat on the floor, paralyzed and out of breath. The shocked expression on his face is just a little too familiar, making this a really funny meme, but also very unfunny when we hop on the treadmill.
7 JoJo's Fabulous Characters Meme
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is highly regarded for its character designs, particularly during its earliest arcs that highlight the manga's Fist of the North Star influence. It's not just that JoJo packs the stage with muscular heroes and villains who look like they have been sculpted from stone, but the anime (and manga) celebrates these characters.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is over-the-top in the best possible way. The animation is vibrant and dynamic, the settings blend realism and fantasy well, and the character's poses are just iconic.
6 Mcree “High Noon” Meme
Memes do a great job of crossing over with other forms of media in funny and clever ways. While the internet is absolutely chock full of the Dio meme, this one stands out for targeting a great character from an unrelated video game.

There’s something entertaining about Dio’s face plastered over Mcree’s body from Overwatch and is yet another example of Dio appearing where people least expect him to. Many consider this overused meme dead, but like Dio’s unexpected appearance in the anime, we imagine this Dio meme is going to resurface over and over again for years to come.
5 Impatient Dio Meme
Everyone has been there; you’re in a rush to go somewhere, or you’ve been waiting a considerable time to go and your friend tells you it’ll just be a second before they’re ready to go.15 minutes later and you’re still waiting.
This Dio Brando meme gives a great portrayal of just how we feel on the inside while we’re waiting impatiently or don’t expect them to be ready when they say they will. It could also be we have a particularly short fuse that day and don’t want to wait on anybody for any reason. Either way, this meme is good for a laugh while you’re waiting that one second for your friend to get ready.
4 When Your Friends Agree To Watch
Anime and manga fans know the pain of convincing friends to join in on what they’ve become obsessed with, especially if they’re not accustomed to the strangeness inherent in these mediums. That’s why it’s so rewarding when we finally convince someone to try it.

Yet, there’s also a sinister satisfaction that comes with it. While the overall show might be great and a fun run, there could be some particularly bizarre and disturbing moments, especially in JoJo, that are bound to shock and confuse those caught unprepared. Which makes this sinister meme of triumph a great example of how good it feels to get someone to agree to watch this strange show.
3 When You See The Source Of The Memes
Memes are almost always funnier when you understand the context within the source material. Though JoJo memes have a habit of floating around the internet, only fans who’ve seen the show will actually understand the depth of a good JoJo meme.
This meme hints at this by showing Will Smith fascinated with what he sees and taking pictures, a reaction most people will have when the memes convince them to actually watch the anime or read the manga. If anything, JoJo memes serve as good advertisements for people wondering what on earth the context is in the image and go watch the anime to find out, only to be sucked into a truly bizarre adventure.
2 Non-English Dio Meme
You were warned earlier in this article that this particular meme wasn’t going to die and would likely make appearances again and again, and sure enough, here’s another Dio meme. This one stands out for being a clever play on the meme and the original manga it stems from.
In the original manga written in Japanese Dio says the phrase “Kono Dio Da!” which translated into English means “it’s me Dio!” But even non-JoJo fans will get a kick out of the play on the meme when we’re all expecting the typical saying, but getting it in an unfamiliar language.
1 When Memes Interrupt Work
Memes are great, and the internet combined with smartphones have made them viewable practically anywhere at any time. Which is great if you’re waiting on the bus, waiting your turn in the doctor’s office, or in the bathroom waiting for…you know.
But the other side of that coin is that it is easier than ever to get distracted. This great meme calls everyone out for looking at an endless stream of memes when they should be doing what they were hired to do. Perhaps some of you are browsing the memes in this article right now at work, but don’t worry, it will remain between us.
