—Jotaro Kujo

Jotaro Kujo (空条 承太郎 Kūjō Jōtarō?) is the protagonist of Part III: Stardust Crusaders. He appears prominently in Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable, and again in a key role in Part VI: Stone Ocean.

Serious, stoic and intelligent, Jotaro lends great power and stability to his allies.

Jotaro is the first JoJo introduced with a Stand, and is among the most well-known characters of the series.

Appearance

Jotaro is a tall (195 cm/6'5"), handsome, and well-built man. He has dark hair, a strong jaw, bold eyebrows, and light eyes. He also bears a mild resemblance to his great-great grandfather Jonathan Joestar and his grandfather Joseph Joestar when he was a young man.

The superficial theme of Jotaro's attire changes in each Part. His trademarks are a visored, ornamented cap, torn at the back and blending with his hair, and a roughly mid-calf-length coat with a standing collar.

Stardust Crusaders

Jotaro wears a dark, modified Japanese school uniform. His outfit appears in various color combinations between illustrations,[8] but the most common scheme is a purple shirt and navy blue hat, coat and pants.

Jotaro's cap is adorned near the centre with a golden button and a rectangular golden piece with a palm design (reminiscent of abhayamudra, later replicated elsewhere in JoJo media and as a trademark of Araki's) on his left. It is torn at the back, appearing to merge with his hair.

Jotaro wears a trenchcoat-length gakuran/tsume-eri with a tall, stiff collar, pierced on the left with a golden chain. Underneath he wears a fitted sleeveless shirt. He wears a pair of slim-fitting ¥20,000[9] pants of very short, sharp flares; and two slim belts, often differently colored, patterned in a row of alternately colored tesselated triangles (reflecting Caesar/Joeseph's headband). He wears a pair of dress shoes without socks.

Diamond is Unbreakable

Jotaro's outfit undergoes a few transitions during this arc. Each features his trademark combination of a visored cap and a trenchcoat. He wears wide-legged pants, and his hat, coat and pants are white.

In his first outfit, the shirt is white, and his hat has a golden "J" emblem added to his earlier palm, now enclosed by a heart.

Later, he wears a black turtleneck shirt with a square golden palm emblem at his neck. His hat has a row of black Venus symbols (♀) with an arrow at the bottom of the cross, along with another palm emblem. He wears two black belts, while his cuffs inherit the triangular pattern formerly seen on his belts. He wears a small, open, lapelless waistcoat patterned with alternating circles and crosses.

Vento Aureo

Seen only in the first few chapters, though dissimilar, his outfit resembles that worn in Part IV.

Stone Ocean

Jotaro again wears a dark overcoat; this time of more detail, primarily in gold (when colored). Lines ring the top and the base of his collar; joining to run the length of the coat's opening. The surface of his collar bears two star pins, with one on the inside, along with a small chain piercing the left. Two lines run the top of the shoulders, with two more radiating from his collar to their sides.Two zips lie between the chest and the stomach. The sides of the shoulders bear large (green) stars, beginning a light stripe reaching his cuffs (also bearing a star) that reads "JOJO", repeatedly. A line runs from the armpit to the end of the coat. 

He wears a light undershirt, printed at the chest with a large star. His shoes and pants are of a piece in a snakeskin texture. He wears a single leather belt, studded in two rows, folded behind itself after the buckle.

Jotaro's torn, blending cap is also again dark. The visor is square, with a subtle arch. A light gold bar at its joint maintains a gold palm emblem like his original. Two lines run the top of the visor, while a widened (green) star spans the front of the crown, its topmost point running onto the top.

    • Seeing as there doesn't appear to be anyway of adding the Tabs above the character images using the current article tabs, I guess we'll have...
    • All of the tabs have been added to the main character articles but Joseph Joestar still needs pictures for his other appearances.
