The characters that change the most throughout the anime
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a unique series divided into multiple parts, each focusing on a different protagonist and antagonist. It is therefore important to give characters the necessary development in the same role and Araki has shown countless times that he is excellent in this area.
Many characters in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure have undergone several changes; both good and bad. Changes in their behavior affected each game and its outcome. While most changes are fleshed out over an entire game, there are instances where characters have appeared in multiple games and exhibited behavioral changes.
8 Jotaro Kujo
Jotaro Kujo is the main character of Stardust Crusaders. In this particular part, Jotaro appeared as a high school student who had to save his mother from death. In Stardust Crusaders Jotaro came across as a very cold person with a very one-dimensional personality.
However, as he appeared in the other parts, Jotaro became friendlier and more mature. He calmly stayed out of the spotlight and helped the other characters develop. In particular, his involvement in ocean of stone was exceptional, as he redeemed himself in his daughter’s eyes, going so far as to sacrifice the chance to defeat Pucci to save Jolyne. His character growth was simply immaculate.
7 Jonathan Joestar
Jonathan Joestar was the very first Joestar to be introduced on the show. He was raised by his father, who was an extremely wealthy man. Unfortunately, due to his father’s immense wealth, Jonathan has become a spoiled brat.
Growing up, Jonathan became an extraordinary gentleman, who treated everyone kindly, including his enemies. His courteous behavior earned him praise and admiration from those around him. When he finally died, even DIO was visibly shaken as he knew he had lost someone important.
6 Rudol Von Stroheim
Von Stroheim was originally introduced as a villain in Fight Tendency. He wanted to use the power of the Pillar Men to make Germany the greatest force in the whole world. However, after realizing he had made a mistake, he sacrificed his body to try and stop Santana.
Later, Von Stroheim made a comeback and tried to help Joseph save the world from the threat of the Pillar Men. It was quite refreshing to see a supporting character join the good side and let go of their evil ways.
5 Dion Brando
Dio’s case is complex. Initially, he came across as a mean individual who had no respect for other people’s lives. However, after multiple confrontations with Jonathan, Dio began to hide his intentions and pretend to be nice, allowing him to trick the world into thinking he had turned nice.
Once Dio’s true intentions were revealed, he only got worse. After being defeated in Part 1, he returned crueler and more powerful, but he was defeated again. By the time of his death, Dio had already met many people, who were introduced in later parts. The people he met would continue to affect the Joestar family even decades after his death.
4 Joseph Jostar
When first introduced on the show, Joseph Joestar was shown to be an easy-going individual. He also seemed arrogant as he didn’t get along with Caesar for a long time. However, as the game continued, Joseph grew more humble and respected the people he was fighting.
When he appeared in Part 4, he had gained a reputation for being a bad parent because he had never met Josuke. When he came to Morioh, he tried to gain Josuke’s trust and even went so far as to cut his wrist to help Josuke find the invisible baby.
3 Jolyne Cujoh
Jolyne’s life has not been easy, especially when she was just a young girl. She was raised by her mother as Jotaro was too busy with work. When Jolyne spoke to Jotaro in prison, he said he was trying to protect his family, but it wasn’t easy for Jolyne to come to terms with her father’s decision.
However, when Jotaro sacrificed his own life to protect Jolyne from Whitesnake’s attack, she began to understand why her father stayed away from them. Jolyne’s awareness helped her make better decisions and enabled her to save her father’s life. At the end of the stone ocean, Jolyne had become one of the best characters in the series.
2 Johnny Joestar
Johnny Joestar is the main protagonist of Steel ball racewhich is often considered the best Jojo part. Compared to the other Joestars, Johnny’s character development is on a whole different level. Initially, he was a selfish person, who followed Gyro because he wanted to regain his ability to walk again.
However, Johnny’s character slowly went through a transformation that made him a very amazing character. He became more concerned about Gyro’s well-being and wanted to protect his friend at all costs. The greatest display of his love for Gyro was when Johnny willingly gave up all of the Saint’s corpse parts to save Gyro from death.
1 Josuke Higashikata
Josuke Higashikata is the main character of the latest Jojo part- Jojolion. He also shares his name with Josuke from Part 4, so in order to avoid confusion, Josuke from Part 8 is known as Gappy. For the most part, Gappy was confused as to his identity as he had absolutely no memory of who he was in the past.
Gappy’s main goal was to regain his memories and in his quest, Gappy showed many changes in behavior. At first he believed it was him against the world, but gradually he began to trust others around him, but he continued to be ruthless when his life was in danger.
