Joseph Joestar of Rome (ローマのジョセフ・ジョースター Rōma no Josefu Jōsutā), originally The Pigeon and the Girl (ハトと女の子 Hato to Onna no Ko) in the WSJ release, is the nineteenth chapter of Battle Tendency and the sixty-third chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.


After their abrupt introduction, Joseph, Caesar and Speedwagon are seen gathered around a large fountain. Speedwagon attempts to calm the dispute between Joseph and Caesar, but is cut short as Caesar mentions his strong Italian pride in comparison to Joseph's lack of training in the Ripple. Antagonized, Joseph challenges Caesar to a fight and charges towards him. Caesar claims that even a woman could beat Joseph, who claims that even a pigeon would best Caesar. Moments later, a woman Caesar had kissed begins to strangle Joseph, having apparently been put under mind control by Caesar's Ripple. The woman grabs Joseph and throws him into the fountain.

Caesar follows this by jumping into the air and introducing his secret technique. Using a soapy substance in his gloves, he is able to launch bubbles fused with the Ripple from his hands. The bubbles hit Joseph and send him flying, then surround him and form one giant bubble. Inside the large bubble, Joseph is unable to break it with his level of Ripple and begins losing air. Caesar attempts to kiss the girl once more to break the spell, but, suddenly, a Ripple-infused pigeon flies out of her mouth and into Caesar's. With his concentration broken, Joseph is freed from the bubble and their match ends at a stalemate.
