- The Zeppeli Family practices supernatural martial arts and crafts separated from Stand power, unlike the Joestar Family. In the first universe they are proficient in the art of the Ripple, and in the Steel Ball Run universe, they practice the art of the Spin.
- It is a recurring theme that a Zeppeli will sacrifice themselves to further their cause, usually while directly assisting a Joestar by giving them their power and knowledge.
