Phantom Blood

Mark Watkin

Manga Debut: Chapter 2, Dio Brando the Invader, Part 1 (Mentioned only)

Historical figures

Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart

Manga Debut: Chapter 27, Tarkus and the Dark Knight Bruford, Part 2
Anime Debut: Episode 5, The Dark Knights
Seiyuu:Yuka Keichō (Elizabeth I)


Elizabeth I (left) and Mary Stuart (right)

Elizabeth I (エリザベス1世 Erizabesu Issei) and Mary Stuart (メアリー・ステュアート Mearī Sutyuāto) were two queens of the Tudor dynasty who fought for the throne 300 years before Phantom Blood, in 1595. Mary was a beautiful 23-year-old woman with peace in her heart, her charm being enough to make men, no matter how strong, entrust themselves and feel that sense of peace. With great tolerance, she took the lonely dark knights Tarkus and Bruford with a smile, enough for them to pledge loyalty and swear to make her queen, even if it cost their lives. When Mary's husband Darnley died from unknown causes Elizabeth took the opportunity to charge her for his death, turning the population against Mary. Elizabeth took Mary prisoner and ordered her to be beheaded, using a impersonator later to trick Tarkus and Bruford into giving up. Their executioner, who was killed by Bruford's hair, was the same one who killed Mary.


Manga Debut: Chapter 27, Tarkus and the Dark Knight Bruford, Part 2 (Mentioned only)
Anime Debut: Episode 5, The Dark Knights (Mentioned only)

Darnley (ダーンリー Dānrī) was the husband of Mary Stuart. He died in an explosion caused by reasons unknown to history. His death was used as an excuse for Mary's execution, as Elizabeth blamed her for his death. Darnley is based on the real Lord Darnley.

Windknights Lot Residents


Manga Debut: Chapter 21, Jack the Ripper and Zeppeli the Eccentric, Part 4 (Mentioned only)

Mr. Harry (ハリー Harī) was a resident of Windknight's Lot whose daughter ran away shortly before Dio's arrival in town. It is possible that she was one of the women Dio and Jack the Ripper killed to suck blood. The other residents gossiped about how youngsters these days would run away without telling anyone, referring to her.

Jeff Back and Dan Hamar

Manga Debut: Chapter 41, Fire and Ice, Jonathan and Dio, Part 3 (Mentioned only)

Jeff Back (ジェフ・バック Jefu Bakku) was a farmer who spotted 4 outsiders (Jonathan Joestar, Robert E. O. Speedwagon, Tonpetty and Straizo) burning Dio Brando's clothes under the cliffs of his empty mansion 2 weeks after Dio's defeat. Dan Hamar (ダン・ハマー Dan Hamā) was a fisherman who reported to the police that his boat was stolen by some easterners the night of the incident, but his boat has yet to be found. Police are investigating if these two cases have any relation to the missing people of Windknight's Lot.

The 77 Rings Challenge Winners

77 Knights Winners

Three of the Five 77 Rings Challenge Winners

Manga Debut: Chapter 28, Tarkus and the Dark Knight Bruford, Part 3

Winzaleo (ウィンザレオ Winzareo), Eijkman (アイクマン Aikuman), and Caineghis (カイネギス Kainegisu) are three of the only five knights who survived the 77 Rings knights challenge, winning the challenge years before the dark knights Tarkus and Bruford, who won in 1563. Winzaleo, known as the Lion King, won in 1327, Eijkman the Lightning Knight won in 1389 and the one-eyed Caineghis won in 1408. The three are playable in the game Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood, where Winzaleo carries a giant battle-axe capable of breaking the ground, Eijkman uses an electrified halberd and Caineghis wields a poisonous scimitar. Their appearance is very different than the one featured in the manga.

Battle Tendency



Bruto as seen in the manga

Manga Debut: Chapter 51, Straizo VS Joseph, Part 4

Bruto (ブルート Burūto) was one of the many people who were outside the cafe during Joseph Joestar and Straizo's battle. In an attempt to impress a girl, he temporarily detains Joseph after the latter had blown up Straizo, along with the cafe. Joseph quickly kicks him in the nose and runs off, leaving Bruto on the ground holding his face while the girl says that Joseph is way cooler than him. His name is possibly a reference to the Popeye character Bluto.

Stardust Crusaders

Captain Tennille

Manga Debut: Chapter 128, Dark Blue Moon, Part 2 (Mentioned only)
Anime Debut: SC Episode 6, Dark Blue Moon (Mentioned only)

Captain Tennille (キャプテン・テニール Kyaputen Tenīru) was introduced to the Joestar group by the Speedwagon Foundation to aid in their trip to reach DIO. His background was checked to make sure he wasn't a Stand user, so everyone could trust him. The Impostor Captain Tennille killed him in Hong Kong and threw his body into the bottom of the sea, taking his place. Though the reader is never shown the true Captain Tennille, he was presumably almost identical to the impostor, since his men, who had worked for ten years on the same ship, did not even suspect the replacement.


Manga Debut: Chapter 138, Yellow Temperance, Part 3
Anime Debut: SC Episode 9, Yellow Temperance

Pocky (ポッキー Pokkī) was a dog eaten by Yellow Temperance.

Prince (プリンス Purinsu), Michael (マイケル Maikeru), and Lionel (ライオネル Raioneru) are three of the five chickens Muhammad Avdol raised on the secluded island he lived on after faking his death. Disguised as his father so no one would come after him as he recovered from Emperor's bullet wound, Avdol fed the chickens so they would grow fat and tasty, but didn't like it when they ate too fast. When Avdol rejoined the Joestar group, he left the chickens on the island with no one to take care of them. Prince, Michael and Lionel are named after musicians Prince, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie.[1]

Stephen was defeated and had his soul taken too. His father Garie Moor (ゲイリー・ムーア Geirī Mūa, Daddy Moor in the anime) tried to win his soul back, but was also beaten. Stephen may have almost won the gamble, as D'Arby remembered the date, place and even what he said before losing (the same words Muhammad Avdol said when Jean Pierre Polnareff was beaten). The Moors' souls were transported back to their bodies after Jotaro Kujo defeated D'Arby. Garie Moor is named for Irish singer Gary Moore.

Bothered by her bag next to him, Kira moved it away, and the couple accused him of trying to steal it. As they got off the train, Minako's boyfriend and Kira bumped into each other, knocking Kira's things onto the ground. Satoru yelled at Kira again, and the couple mocked his "lame" nail clippers.
