The third "Joestar Group", featured in Stardust Crusaders.

The youth of this town have a golden spirit. The same golden spirit shining with justice we saw on our journey to Egypt. I saw it within Josuke and his friends... as long as it's there, they'll be fine. That spirit they embody will naturally course into others without a word, even those who know nothing about Yoshikage Kira, and into the next generation as well...

—Joseph Joestar, "Goodbye, Morioh Town - The Golden Heart"

The Joestar Group is a nickname given to the team of protagonists prominent in each part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. The group is composed of different members in each part, but generally consists of a JoJo, their "sidekick," and various other allies all following the same or a similar plan of action (i.e defeating DIO or protecting Morioh).


Phantom Blood[]

The original Joestar Group starts in 1888 with Jonathan Joestar, aided by his allies Will A. Zeppeli and Robert E. O. Speedwagon. Although Bruford was originally an enemy, he respects Jonathan after their battle and gives him his sword, Luck and Pluck. Later on, Dire, Straizo, Tonpetty and Poco assist Jonathan in an effort to deter the incoming threat to mankind, Dio Brando.

Stardust Crusaders[]

49 years later, in 1988, Jotaro Kujo, the grandson of Joseph Joestar, is pulled into stopping the reawakened DIO as his resurrection causes Jotaro's mother to fall into a deadly fever. Jotaro, who has now acquired a Stand called Star Platinum, hunts down DIO in Egypt with help from his grandfather Joseph, Muhammad Avdol, Noriaki Kakyoin, Jean Pierre Polnareff and a dog named Iggy. DIO called them the Joestar Egyptian Tour Group (ジョースター・エジプト・ツアー御一行様 Jōsutā Ejiputo Tsuā Goikkōsama).

  • The majority of the groups are not led by the centered JoJo but rather by an ally:
    • Part 1's group was initially led by Will Zeppeli before his death, all the while he was teaching Jonathan the basic mechanics of the Ripple.
    • Part 2's group was led by Lisa Lisa, the master of Joseph and Caesar, as well as the strategic leader in the war against the Pillar Men.
    • Part 3's group was led by Joseph, the eldest of them, who initiates the group's goal to find DIO and fight him in Egypt.
    • Part 4's group was led by Jotaro, the main rallying force for the active hunt for dangerous Stand users throughout the part.
    • Part 5's group was led by Bucciarati as the direct superior of every member, plus acting as a father figure to the group in general.
    • Part 6's group is the first group to be led by the current JoJo, Jolyne. She leads the group's moves and commands the respect of her companions.
    • Part 7's duo is a partnership, Gyro and Johnny agreeing to work together to reach each other's goals, however, Gyro is the Spin teacher and thus possesses a tactic leadership role.
    • Part 8's group is the second group led by the current JoJo, as Josuke's will is to uncover his identity is the main drive behind the duo's actions and later he joins up with Rai Mamezuku in order to retrive the New Locacaca branch.
  • With the exception of Part 4 and 8, the majority or half of those in Joestar Groups dies before the end of their stories with very few carrying over to the next respective part. (i.e. Speedwagon, Joseph, Polnareff, Jotaro, and Koichi).


  • Though not initially planned, Araki threw around the idea of Hol Horse joining the protagonists of Stardust Crusaders during their journey, but opted out due to balance issues with Polnareff's similar character. Araki mentions this is part of the reason Hol Horse shows up multiple times throughout the story and why there is at least one group shot with Hol Horse present.[1]
