—Jonathan Joestar

Jonathan Joestar (ジョナサン・ジョースター Jonasan Jōsutā?) is the protagonist Part I: Phantom Blood. Son of nobleman George Joestar I, Jonathan is an honest, kind and positive man whose life is fraught with tragedy after meeting antagonist Dio Brando.



As per a certain norm of the Victorian era, Jonathan's childhood attire consisted of a jacket, white dress shirt, breeches and a pair of long socks with black shoes. As a nobleman, he also wears a flamboyant looking ribbon tie and a vest much like his father's. His outfit remains consistent all throughout his childhood, though he takes the jacket off at times to lounge outside or fight. In more formal boxing matches, Jonathan will don the typical boxing shorts and white tank top.[5]

Adult YearsEdit

In his older years, Jonathan replaces his breeches with longer dress pants and tends to roll up his coat sleeves to match his mature appearance and profession as a scholar in Archaeology. He also wears a striped team uniform during University rugby games. When he sets out to Ogre Street to find a cure for his father's illness, he dons a detective like outfit, complete with a cap and long coat.

During the journey to Windknights Lot, his outfit is a mixture of his formal and detective-like outfit, though its completely altered after his fight with Tarkus. Towards the later half of the arc and his final battle with Dio, he dons a sleeveless tank top with shoulder guards, giving him an appearance similar to Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star.
