This is a list of minor items appearing in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and related medias.
The items featured in this list do not have enough information to justify an article, mainly due to lack of relevance, but are still notable.
Part 1: Phantom Blood
Dario Brando's Letter
A letter sent by Dario Brando to George Joestar asking him to take care of his son Dio. It was then put into a box in the library of the Joestar Mansion and forgotten, but when Jonathan discovered it by accident, he saw that Dario was suffering the same symptoms as the then-sick George before his death. It led Jonathan to suspect Dio of having poisoned his own father and George as well.
The address on the letter is changed from "225 Baker Street East, Liverpool" to "221B Baker Street, Liverpool" in the anime, making it a Sherlock Holmes reference.
A slow poison from Asia sold by Wang Chan to Dio Brando. Dio used that poison to kill his own father and disguise his murder as sickness, and planned to do the same with George Joestar. When Jonathan found Wang Chan, it instead incriminated Dio.
Statue of the Goddess of Love
A statue of a woman draped in a toga holding a jar. It represents the Goddess of Love, said to be the guardian of the Joestar Family. Situated in the main hall of the Joestar Mansion near the main stairs, it was used to impale Dio when the Mansion was burning down, imprisoning the Vampire in the inferno.
Luck and Pluck
Initially named "Luck", this was the name of the sword belonging to legendary knight Bruford, which he would use in conjunction with his prehensile hair in combat. When a resurrected Bruford was defeated at the hands of Jonathan Joestar, he came to respect the young man and granted him his sword, using his own blood to re-baptize it "Luck & Pluck". The blade proved a precious and invaluable weapon during Jonathan's battle with Dio.
Dio used a reinforced and booby-trapped coffin carved with his name in golden capital letters as a shelter on the boat which transported Jonathan and Erina to America. Though Dio planned to use it to shelter himself with Jonathan's body, it became a makeshift lifeboat for Erina, her unborn child, and the infant Lisa Lisa when the boat exploded and sank.
It then somehow served as Dio's shelter at the bottom of of the Atlantic Ocean, and the coffin wouldn't be pulled back to the surface until 1983, freeing the Vampire from his underwater tomb.
Part 2: Battle Tendency
Ripple conducting Scarf
A scarf made with the yarn of a fictional insect called Sathiphorosia Scarab. Crafted from 30,000 scarabs, these type of scarfs were used by both Straizo and his student Lisa Lisa.

Anti Ripple Wires
Special metallic wires at whose end is attached a hook crafted by the Pillar Men as a defensive and offensive weapon against Ripple users. Attached to the user's head, they can create small tornadoes strong enough to destroy a Ripple infused projectile when the user shakes his head. Moreover the small tornadoes act as invisible projectiles which can severely injure the enemy.

A metal mask specially designed to train people to breathe in order to produce the Ripple. It is straped to the user's head, covering both the nose and mouth and cannot be removed without outside help. If the wearer breathes as if he produced the Ripple, he will be able to have air, but if he breathes incorrectly, he'll suffocate. It is undeniably cruel but effective as a training tool.

Part 3: Stardust Crusaders
Photographs Joseph Joestar has taken by smashing a camera with his hand and Hermit Purple. During the events of Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable, they would serve to give clues to the Joestar Group about their enemies.

A photograph the third Joestar Group took in Egypt as a commemoration. It features Jotaro Kujo, Joseph Joestar, Muhammad Avdol, Noriaki Kakyoin, Jean Pierre Polnareff, and Iggy. Although surely taken during the event of Stardust Crusaders, it wouldn't appear until Vento Aureo.
The anime adaptation expands on this photograph by showing the group actually taking it and Jotaro dearly holding onto it at several occasions.
Mariah's Jewelry Rope
A rope with jewelry originally decorated on Mariah's mini skirt. When Bastet turned Joseph Joestar into a Human maganet and steps onto an escalator, the metallic jewelry fly towards him and wrap around his neck, making Joseph stuck in escalator.

A fictional video game used by Noriaki Kakyoin and Telence T. D'Arby in their match. It is a racing game heavily inspired from F-Zero in which racing cars must complete laps on racing tracks. Players have an energy bar which determine a car's power, and the players can mash the buttons before the start to get a speed boost. It is more complex to play than at face value, the physics allowing a player to spin their car, drive on walls, and fly; moreover segments of the game are played with the cars in complete darkness. Shortcuts are available in the tracks but are difficult to cross.
Oh! That's A Baseball!
A fictional video game used by Jotaro Kujo and Telence T. D'Arby. It simulates a game of baseball, in which two players will play using different baseball teams.

Mr. President's Key
An ornate key in which is embedded a transparent marble. On the marble is engraved instructions for finding Coco Jumbo in Naple's train station, in which it fits a cavity on the turtle's shell.

Diavolo subsequently managed to kill Risotto Nero and Leone Abbacchio.
Diavolo can communicate with Doppio through any kind of object while not in control, granting his subordinate the belief that his alter ego is another person all together. Although we haven't heard the quality of these "calls" yet and whether or not the objects alter the quality of Diavolo's voice, Doppio can always hear his alter ego's voice through the object. Doppio also, on occasion, forgets that he's been able to communicate with Diavolo, but he consistently has never realized he's been using a broken or non-phone object. These "phones" have ranged from ice cream to frogs, to cigarettes to toys, and of course Doppio always carries on him a broken or dismantled phone headset.
Negative and bust of Diavolo
After Leone Abbacchio managed to rewind time near the stela in Donatella Una's photograph, Bucciarati's Gang retrieved a negative of "Solido Naso"'s face and fingerprints, which they made into a bust and then used to research the Boss' past.

However, Jolyne decided to let Jotaro go alone and stayed in order to find whoever stole Jotaro's Star Platinum and memories.
A ghost computer Emporio uses sometimes and brings with him when he escapes the Green Dolphin Street prison. It proved instrumental in defeating Miu Miu when Emporio faxed an image in binary of the chief warden to Jolyne, enabling her to identify Miu Miu with only two memories.

Gyro would use the belt buckle to push Johnny to his limits, making him realize where to really look to see the Golden Rectangle. Johnny would learn to produce an infinite rotation by observing his surroundings and use the belt buckle to make a metal bullet which granted him victory over Soundman.
A handkerchief on which is sewed the date "20 Sep. 1847", Funny Valentine's birth date. It was originally owned by Funny's biological father and the soldier used it as a memento of what he was resisting torture for. He hid it in his eye socket, enabling Capt. Valentine, his friend, to give it Funny.
