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
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. Later, Jonathan discovers it by accident, realizing that Dario was suffering the same symptoms as his currently sick father, George. This leads 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 HolmesW 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.
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.
The statue of the Goddess of Love is featured in the Joestar Mansion stage of Eyes of Heaven. As a dramatic finish, the defeated enemy falls off the railings and is impaled by the statue. While the demo of the game actually displayed the character being stabbed by the statue, it was censored in the final version of the game with a white flash.
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
A scarf made with the yarn of a fictional insect called the Satiporoja Beetle. Crafted from 30,000 scarabs, these types of scarves were used by both Straizo and his student Lisa Lisa. The scarf has the property to conduct 100% of the Ripple it receives, making it both a handy weapon for a Ripple Master and a good protection against it. Straizo would compare it to a lightning rod.
|Manga Debut: Chapter 66: Ultimate Warriors from Ancient Times, Part 2|
Special metallic wires with a hook attached at the end 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 strapped 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. Lisa Lisa uses it to train Joseph to prepare him against the Pillar Men.
The miniaturized ultraviolet lasers were anti-vampire weapons developed by the Speedwagon Foundation. These weapons are basically two UV lights attached to the shoulders and powered by a miniaturized battery which the user wears as a backpack. The miniaturized UV Lasers were put into use by the SPW Foundation's special force and the Wehrmacht during a battle against Kars' Vampire army near the Skeleton Heel Stone. These weapons enabled the humans to stand up to the Vampires. Unfortunately, Kars exploited them to activate the Stone Mask combined with the Red Stone of Aja, becoming the Ultimate Lifeform.
Part 3: Stardust Crusaders
Photographs taken by Joseph Joestar as a result of 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. One particular photograph of DIO allowed Star Platinum to spot a Hue Hue Fly in the background, enabling the group to confirm his presence in Egypt. Another photograph would hint the group about DIO's lair, facilitating their journey.
In Diamond is Unbreakable, one spirit photograph warned Jotaro Kujo and Josuke Higashikata about Anjuro Katagiri. The threat of the photographs also lured Akira Otoishi in the open, enabling his defeat.
|Manga Debut: Chapter 174: Judgement, Part 1|
|Manga Debut: Chapter 179: High Priestess, Part 1|
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 in the manga until Vento Aureo.
The anime adaptation expands on this photograph by showing the group actually taking it and Jotaro dearly holding onto it on several occasions.
A rope with jewelry originally decorated on Mariah's mini skirt. When Bastet turned Joseph Joestar into a human magnet and steps onto an escalator, the metallic jewelry flew towards him and wrapped around his neck, making Joseph stuck on the escalator. Joseph begins crying, and shouts in remorse over his pathetic death as Muhammad Avdol presses the emergency stop button.
A collection of poker chips Daniel J. D'Arby keeps in an album. The poker chips are in fact souls of people D'Arby gambled with and won against, which Osiris molded into poker chips. D'Arby then places the poker chips into special cavities in the pages and writes down the soul's name and the date at which it was acquired. During the events of the story arc D'Arby the Gambler, Daniel temporarily added Jean Pierre Polnareff and Joseph Joestar to his collection. When Daniel went mad from playing poker with Jotaro Kujo, he liberated every soul in his collection.
A collection of puppets Telence T. D'Arby makes personally and keeps in a cabinet. They are in fact modeled after people D'Arby has played and won against, and whose soul Atum put into. Though not as extensive as his brother's collection, Telence considers his collection more interesting as the puppets are still sentient, being able to move and speak. He periodically changes their clothes and makes accessories for them. During the events of the story arc D'Arby the Player, he temporarily added Noriaki Kakyoin to his collection.
A fictional video game played by Noriaki Kakyoin and Telence T. D'Arby in their match. It is a racing game heavily inspired by F-ZeroW. In the game, cars must complete laps on racing tracks. Players have an energy bar that determines their 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, with 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 on the tracks but are difficult to cross.
A fictional video game played by Jotaro Kujo and Telence T. D'Arby. It simulates a game of baseball, in which two players face off using different baseball teams. One player must select what kind of throw his pitcher perform, while the opponent must react to the throw as the batter. The players' positions will be switched after three outs or when their turn has ended. It is possible to customize the appearance of the teams, as Jotaro and Telence make each of their team members resemble their respective Stands.
The game also makes an appearance in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.
Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable
|Manga Debut: Chapter 312: Red Hot Chili Pepper, Part 6|
A homemade 65.2 cm long guitar Akira Otoishi carries with him. Akira built it out of Mahogany wood from Honduras for the body, hard walnut wood for the neck, and a humbucker to diminish main hums and give the guitar more power. It is also equipped with a tremolo arm to make the sound reverberate efficiently. The Mahogany wood is said to be the best material for sound resonance, able to absorb sweat thus making the sound smoother. The hard walnut neck results in an overall deep and throaty sound quality.
|Manga Debut: Chapter 311: Red Hot Chili Pepper, Part 5|
A remote controlled plane resembling a Supermarine Spitfire which Akira Otoishi planned to use to get his Stand Red Hot Chili Pepper to Joseph Joestar's boat in three minutes. It can go as fast as 150kmph.
A winning national lottery ticket, bearing the winning number 121314 for the SG Group. It was thrown away by the original buyer "Ichiro Morishita", whose name and phone number "1774-4284" are written on the back, but then Harvest collected it and Okuyasu uncovered its worth and finally Josuke had to tamper with the ticket with Crazy Diamond, changing the name to "Ichiro Kinoshita" and the phone number to "1771-4281" to get the prize. It brought five million yen to Josuke, Okuyasu and Shigechi. They briefly fought over the paycheck before Josuke tore it down to distract Shigechi and beat him.
High-class sandwiches sold at St. Gentleman's bakery. They are usually filled with tenderloin, salad and a tomato slice, plus an unnamed sauce. The bread is baked fresh every day at 11AM, and the surplus is thrown away by 1PM. The tenderloin is said to be freshly fried, so it is still crisp when bought. Due to their quality, the sandwiches are sought after and usually sell out quickly. One day, a dog stole Shigechi's sandwich under his nose, prompting the boy to take another St. Gentleman's bag nearby, happening to be Kira's.
Yoshikage Kira likes to keep one severed hand of his victims as 'girlfriends'. After killing a woman, he gets rid of her body, with the exception of the hand, and will mimic a romantic relationship with it, acting as if the hand was sentient. He notably talks to it, gives it a ride through town, and offers it several gifts, generally pampering it. Once the hand starts to rot, Kira destroys it and moves on to another "girlfriend". Shigechi fatefully discovered one of these girlfriends and is killed, impelling the heroes after the murderer.
A button from Yoshikage Kira's ValentinoW jacket. A fairly ordinary button, it became the heroes' first clue toward discovering Kira's identity after Shigechi snatches it from him and gives it to Josuke through Harvest. It eventually led Jotaro and Koichi to the tailor who had fixed the jacket in question, and Kira's eventual change of identity.
Lipstick put into an ornate tube bearing Aya Tsuji's Cinderella beauty salon's emblem that she gives to Yukako Yamagishi after Cinderella operates on her. In accord with Aya's view that miracles take dedication, after Yukako upgrades to "capturing love", the lipstick must be applied by Yukako every 30 minutes every day, except when sleeping, to keep the charm on. Failure to do so results in becoming unsightly and the eventual crumbling of whatever feature was modified by Cinderella.
As a hobby, Yoshikage Kira has been keeping a record of his nails' growth over the years since 1983, detailing the growth of each fingernail & toenail. Moreover, he stores his nails in small glass bottles, labeling each by the year of the nails' collection and keeping them stored in a cabinet for unknown reasons.
While his nails ordinarily grow by around 8 centimeters every month, they sometime grow at an accelerated rate, reaching 30 centimeters per month. A rapid growth served to indicate whenever Kira had the best 'hunting luck'. Jotaro Kujo and Josuke Higashikata found this record in Kira's house.
Part 5: Vento Aureo
|Manga Debut: Chapter 441: Gold Experience, Part 2|
A metal shovel on which is engraved the initialism SPQR ( Senātus Populus que Rōmānus, meaning "The Senate and People of Rome"). Luca uses it as his weapon of choice against Giorno Giovanna, but ends up caving in his own skull when he tries to bash a frog created by Gold Experience and the damage is reflected back at him.
An ornate metal lighter given to Giorno Giovanna by Polpo. It serves in Polpo's test, in which Giorno has to keep the lighter lit for 24 hours in order to be admitted in Passione. A janitor accidentally puts it out. It is tied to the Stand Black Sabbath, and when it is put out and lit again, the Stand appears in order to pierce anyone close with an Arrow.
A metallic badge with intricate design given to those who pass Polpo's test as proof of their status as Passione gang members.
A set of precious jewels Polpo bought with money swindled from Passione. It is worth 600 million yen. Polpo ordered Bruno Bucciarati to hide it, and Bucciarati put the jewels into the walls of a public toilet in Capri. Upon Polpo's death, his treasure was coveted by both Bucciarati's Gang and Mario Zucchero & Sale. Bucciarati got a hold of the treasure and gave it to Pericolo, earning himself the rank of lieutenant instead of Polpo.
An ornate key in which is embedded a transparent marble. On the marble is engraved instructions for finding Coco Jumbo in Naples' train station, in which it fits a cavity on the turtle's shell. The key is heavily linked to Mr.President, as it activates the Stand and taking it out of the shell forcibly ejects any living being from the room inside Coco Jumbo. It was placed in Pompeii near the dog mosaic, and Giorno, Fugo and Abbacchio were sent to retrieve it. The assassin Illuso fought them over it, but the trio managed to seize it.
A floppy disk which was put by Diavolo in the lion statue of Venice's Santa Lucia train station. Bucciarati's Gang was ordered to retrieve the disk, and Giorno and Mista managed to take it from Ghiaccio's hands. The disk contains the following instructions:
A ladybug brooch about the size of a hand that Giorno always has on his chest. When Bucciarati had to accompany Trish alone to meet Diavolo, Giorno gave life to one of his brooches, planting some of Coco Jumbo's cells and gave it to Bucciarati so that he could plant it on the Boss and follow him. However, a fight ensued and the brooch was used to detect Diavolo during the fight and temporarily imprison him when the brooch transformed into a clone of Coco Jumbo.
A knee-high small-heeled boot worn by Trish Una, first appears in Chapter 486. During the Plane accident, Trish was targeted by a small Notorious B.I.G.. When she drops a glass bottle with water, the water splashes and soaks her right leg's boot, which make Notorious B.I.G target the small drops going down the boot. However, the boot strangely falls off from Trish's leg, and is destroyed and eaten by Notorious B.I.G. Trish then sees her own Stand, Spice Girl, offering her counsel and asking for a command. Trish finally realized her power and defeated Notorious B.I.G., but is never shown on screen getting her boot replaced after the battle.
A photograph of Donatella Una taken in 1985 by a young Diavolo, then named Solido Naso, near a stele in La Costa Smeralda on the island of Sardinia. When he checked the results of La Squadra di Esecuzione's investigations of Donatella's room, Diavolo spotted the photograph, which made Diavolo go to Sardinia as he sensed Trish was heading toward the island, thus guiding Bucciarati's Gang toward a place Moody Blues could investigate. 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 altogether. 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.
|Manga Debut: Chapter 550: Like the Falling Sky|
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. Their effort didn't bear any result but caught the attention of Jean Pierre Polnareff who contacted the gang to ally themselves against Diavolo. Strangely, the face on Diavolo's bust resembles Doppio instead.
Part 6: Stone Ocean
A pendant resembling a beetle which was given to Jolyne Cujoh from her father Jotaro Kujo. It can be opened and in fact, contains a shard of an Arrow. Jolyne pricked herself with the Pendant and threw it away, only to be picked up by Ermes Costello. Ermes also pricked herself with it and she sold it to Gwess. Thus it served to awaken Stone Free, Kiss, and Goo Goo Dolls. Jolyne took it back from Gwess, and it accompanied her until Jolyne threw it toward her father in a fit of anger.
A mini-submarine Jotaro acquired from the Speedwagon Foundation. Positioning it near the island where Green Dolphin Street Jail is situated, Jotaro planned to break Jolyne out of prison and then escape with it. 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. It was also crucial in fighting Donatello Versus when Emporio used it to make research on a plane crash in whose memory Jolyne and Ermes were trapped, enabling them to find a way to escape death.
Part 7: Steel Ball Run
A worn out teddy bear owned by Gyro Zeppeli. It eventually became so worn out Gyro abandoned it during the 7th stage before confronting Axl RO. Apart from his affection for it, it is otherwise unremarkable. However, a double of the teddy bear was summoned by Civil War and contributed to incapacitate Gyro by covering him with a membrane alongside other abandoned items.
A collar hanger bearing the crest of the Royal Family of Naples. It is the symbol of status of the royal executioners and stealing one of these is akin to insulting the whole country. Gyro's collar hanger got lost when one prisoner rebelled and fought Gyro, only for Marco to take it and try to fix it. The incident pushed Gyro to object to Marco's death and subsequently participate to the Steel Ball Run race in order to free the young boy.
A map of the Americas on which are marked the nine approximate location of the Saint Corpse Parts, despite dating back to the 1st century AC. Joseph of Arimathea was one of Jesus' followers. When Jesus resurrected, in drew a map of the America in which were indicated the location of his future Corpse Parts. Joseph of Arimathea witnessed the miracle and drew the map on a parchment. It was subsequently hidden in an English abbey until it was stolen during the 15th Century. Its whereabouts became unknown, until Funny Valentine found the map in the Parliament in 1889. He then used the map to organize the Steel Ball Run race.
A message sent via messenger pigeon by Ringo Roadagain to Funny Valentine. It contained the coordinates for the Spine of Jesus: 36° 6' 24" North, 94° 40' 6" West. Lucy Steel intercepted the message, and managed to take the Spine, giving it to Johnny and Gyro. However, its theft was noticed and set the government on a chase after her.
A pair of old horse riding boots originally owned by Nicholas Joestar who tragically died in an accident. One day, Johnny Joestar found out that his boots were too damaged for use, and sought to borrow Nicholas' boots. However, his father George objected to it as he cherished Nicholas' memory, loving him more than Johnny. They briefly fought over it, causing George to disown his son. Years later during the event of the story arc High Voltage, George would wave these boots in front of Johnny as a silent reconciliation.
A belt buckled consisting of two metallic plates on which are engraved two hands normally pointing downward as to emphasize the crotch when the belt is worn. The plates are designed to be in the ratio of the Golden Rectangle, making it a good scale for Spin users to produce an infinite rotation although they generally rely on observation of nature. 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 Sandman.
A handkerchief on which is embroidered 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. It served to boost Valentine's resolve at the moment he was overcome by despair, facing the possibility of remaining buried alive forever due to Tusk ACT 4's infinite rotation. Thus, it indirectly allowed him to conceive one last plan to defeat Johnny Joestar.
Part 8: JoJolion
A tasseled "dixie cup" sailor hat. It is sold in the SBR hat shop in Morioh and was bought by Yoshikage Kira three days before Josuke emerged, and is remarkable as Josuke's first clue toward discovering his true identity since it led him to Kira's apartment. Josuke is never seen without the hat.
A local culinary specialty of Morioh, the Sesame Honey Dumplings are bite-sized mochis filled with honey-like sesame seed, edamame or cream. They spill easily and are supposed to be bitten with the back teeth. Yasuho gave a box of them to Josuke, who found the dumplings delicious and would later associate them with his romance with Yasuho. He also bites them with the front teeth, spilling the filling.
A sculpture of Yoshikage Kira's hand. It was ordered by Yoshikage Kira himself, as the narcissistic man wanted to admire his hands. It is notable for being the proof that Josuke isn't Kira.
A shrine dedicated to Johnny Joestar situated near Shakedown Road. It is a typical Japanese shrine whose characteristic is a sailor cap and collar on a Buddha statue, recognizable because of his bindiW and KhakkharaW. It commemorates the death of Johnny Joestar with his name engraved below the statue. The locals regularly give donations and take care of the shrine.
A dessert served in the Higashikata Fruit Parlor in order to recycle unsold melons, specifically muskmelons given the color. It consists of nine layers of from top to bottom:

|Manga Debut: JJL Chapter 51: Vitamin C and Killer Queen, Part 2|
An eye medicine, only remarkable in that it served as a distraction for Josefumi Kujo and Yoshikage Kira to steal branches of the Rokakaka from Aisho Dainenjiyama. Josefumi and Yoshikage pretended that Eye Eye Syaa was a miracle medicine, pushing Aisho to take one and try it. They then used that distraction to their advantage, and Aisho was stolen from without knowing and thinking that the medicine was great.
The name references Hol Horse's catchphrase 'Aye Aye Sir' from Stardust Crusaders.
