—Josuke Higashikata

Josuke Higashikata (東方 仗助, Higashikata Jōsuke?), the Suke ( Suke?) in his name may also be read as "Jo", is the protagonist of Diamond Is Unbreakable. He is the fourth JoJo of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series.

Josuke is a high school freshman residing in the town of Morioh. As Joseph Joestar's illegitimate son, he is also Jotaro Kujo's half-uncle despite being ~12-13 years younger. He takes it upon himself to protect his beloved town from malevolent Stand users.


Excuse me... What did you say about my hair?!

—Josuke Higashikata

Josuke is a tall, handsome young man of average build. He wears a small stud in each ear. The feature most important to him is his well-maintained pompadour, styled after that of an unknown man who saved his life as a child.[4] His pompadour has a tendency to become spiky with his mood, such as when he is irritated or angry.

Josuke wears a dark, modified Japanese school uniform. His jacket conforms to his body, extending to the middle of his thigh, accompanied by a pair of wide-legged pants. He keeps his jacket unbuttoned and pinned aside, revealing a light undershirt with a short zipper on each side of his chest.

Josuke wears a number of metallic/golden emblems. On the left of his collar he wears a modified anchor, and on his right a row of two small hearts. Pinning his open jacket to his chest on his right is a peace sign (☮), and on the left is a heart (occasionally enclosing a palm, like on Jotaro's hat). He wears a gold band at both wrists, above his sleeves (under more elaborate pieces in several illustrations).

Valuing footwear, Josuke wears a pair of Mr. Junko original socks and ¥25,000 black Bally shoes.[5]

Josuke's most common color scheme consists of either a dark blue or purple uniform and a green or yellow undershirt.
