He-llo? Could you say that again? More slowly? In a language I understand? Depending on what you said, I might kick your ass!

—Joseph Joestar in his younger years

Joseph Joestar (ジョセフ・ジョースター Josefu Jōsutā?) is the main protagonist of Battle Tendency, a core ally in Stardust Crusaders, and a supporting character in Diamond Is Unbreakable.

A survivor, Joseph meets the fantastic threats approaching him throughout his life with initiative and ingenuity.

He is the second most recurring JoJo in the series after Jotaro Kujo and is one of the series' most well known characters.


Battle Tendency

18 years old, Joseph is tall (195 cm/6'5"), handsome, and powerfully built, with light eyes. He has short, dark and unkempt hair, parts of his bangs shooting outwards in spikes, apart from which he closely resembles his grandfather Jonathan Joestar.

Joseph's primary outfit is relatively minimal and pragmatic. He wears a tank top cut above the navel, gloves studded at the knuckles, fitting pants with a leather belt, and knee-high leather boots. In Switzerland he dons a long, broad, striped scarf; and later, as a gift from Caesar, a long, thin headband patterned with a row of tessellated triangles.

Initially he wears a white collared shirt with tie and suspenders, and a greatcoat chequered across the shoulders. Other articles include an aviator's hat (as motorcycle gear), a knit cap, and a breathing mask designed for Ripple training.

Later depictions of Joseph include the aviator hat and goggles, both of which were permanently added to differentiate him from Jonathan and compliment the overall "mechanical feel" brought about by the various planes and motorcycles present in Part 2.[7]

Stardust Crusaders

At 69, Joseph retains most of his health and muscularity, though his face displays his age (due in part to having neglected his Ripple training). His hair is short and gray, and he sports a thick, well-trimmed beard.

During the group's journey to Egypt, he wears a fedora; a light, short-sleeved, buttonless shirt; khaki pants (often compared to this extent to Indiana Jones' basic outfit); dress shoes; and white gloves with dark wristbands concealing his prosthetic left hand (a result of his fight with Kars).[8] At his introduction he also wears a trenchcoat and a turtleneck sweater.

Diamond Is Unbreakable

At 79, Joseph has aged normally. While his stature is still apparent, he is hunched over and uses a cane.[9] He wears a diminutive pair of pince-nez spectacles, and a spotted, brimmed woolen hat with ear flaps reminiscent of a ushanka. He wears a thick trench coat, a collared shirt and tie, and baggy pants.
