Specifically, the older Joestar had cheated on his loving wife Suzy Q with a woman from Japan named Tomoko Higashikata. This would result in the beloved protagonist Josuke Higashikata, but tarnished Joseph’s reputation for many fans.

9 DIO, the rainbow in the dark

DIO turns sadistic in JoJos Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders

Born as Dio Brando, the now all caps DIO of stardust crusaders has moved from his the good son style shenanigans Part 1: Ghost Blood.

8 The Useless Saint Kujo

Holy Kujo Happy JoJO

Holy Kujo, daughter of Joseph Joestar and mother of Jotaro Kujo, may be the catalyst for the story in Part 3, but in addition to representing a clock, she falls squarely into a clichéd damsel-in-distress archetype that even in late ‘The Years. 80 had already been exaggerated in the manga (and most of the fiction).

What makes things worse is the method by which he gets sick. Unlike his father or son, Holy cannot contain the power of his latent resistance. She is so overwhelmed by it that she is slowly killing it. This is a very strange choice considering later in the part that animals and literal babies are shown to be more than capable Stand users.

7 The terrifying masculine boy

Mannish Boy uses his support to attack while people sleep

Mannish Baby was the bearer of one of the most terrifying supports in the history of the series. Not so subtly based on horror icon Freddy Krueger and his Nightmare on Elm Street movies, this support allowed the user to chase the dreams of their targets where if they died in the dream they died for real.

Thanks to the skill and skill of the late Noriaki Kakyoin, the sadistic boy is defeated and spends the final moments of the arc literally eating his own feces.

6 vicious pet shop

Pet Shop, armed with the support called Horus, was one of DIO’s deadliest henchmen. While the main cast of heroes never encountered the bird of prey, his poor pet Iggy witnessed the full extent of his wrath. Fortunately, Iggy would survive (for the time being), but at the cost of his leg.

Pet Shop’s deadly ice attacks and sadistic mentality made him a fan-favorite of JoJo’s antagonists, at least until he showed up at Capcom. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Inheritance for the Futurewhere his little hitbox made him so disgustingly overpowered that he’s still banned from tournaments to this day.

5 The Derivative Terence T. D’Arby

The opening battle with Daniel J. D’Arby is considered one of the best, if not the best, in all of Part 3. However, while the battle with his brother Terence is a fun and entertaining game in itself, it’s also it is. generally regarded as a less exciting redux of the original.

Appearing almost out of nowhere when the Stardust Crusaders enter DIO’s mansion, young D’Arby challenges the heroes to a battle of video game skill for their mortal souls. When fans listen to D’Arby, they often think of the elderly Daniel, leaving Terence in relative obscurity.

4 the meaningless ana

Some ideas or characters, for one reason or another, are ultimately written by the author so that they can focus their attention more on concepts that their audience enjoys or best fits.

What starts out as a good boyish sidekick quickly turns awkward when he becomes the target of a disturbingly sexual orangutan. That and her out-of-place and tacky shower scene make it pretty clear that the Part was better off ditching her rather than doubling down on whatever ideas Araki wanted to convey.

3 The predatory creep, J. Geil

Another adversary who caused Polnareff to abandon his comical, laid-back demeanor was the man who murdered and sexually assaulted his sister, Sherry. J. Geil. Renamed by the dub as Centerfold, Geil was the son of later Part 3 opponent Enya the Hag, who teamed with her partner Hol Horse in an attempt to defeat the Stardust Crusaders.

His position, the Hanged Man, could attack his victims through the reflection of light, from something as small as a coin to something as large as a puddle. Polnareff took revenge on the creep and left him sliced ​​and diced in the desert sand.

two The much creepier, forever

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 3 Stardust Crusaders Forever Strength

To put it bluntly, Forever is a super-intelligent orangutan, powered by Stand, who spends a great deal of time lusting after the women, and specifically the fellow toddler in the group. That alone is enough to put it so high on the list.

His position is also quite unnerving, as the Force masquerades as a large ship that can transform and kill at will. The Force arc is one of the most difficult parts of the series for some newcomers. JoJo’s had always been a pretty R-rated series, but Forever’s unsettling character put it on another level.

1 The predator still CREEPY, Alessi

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 3 Stardust Crusaders Alessi

Alessi appears as a minor antagonist midway through the series sporting strange attire and a disturbing obsession with children. His stand, Sethan, allows Alessi to turn anyone whose shadow touches his stand to lose their age. Polnareff becomes the unwitting victim of this event, as he first becomes a toddler, and eventually a toddler.

The entire arc features some awkward depictions of children in somewhat sexual situations. This arc, along with the Force arc, remains one of the most troublesome moments in JoJo’s history. Fortunately, Alessi is sent by Jotaro, but unfortunately it seems that he is allowed to go free and never appears again in the manga.
