  • While writing Vento Aureo, Araki had listened to RapW as a means to develop the hoodlum (ワル) atmosphere of the part and its gangsterW protagonists. He gives Snoop Dogg's album "Doggystyle" as an example, mentioning it as particularly "scary".[1]
  • Since the arc takes place in Italy, the series title is generally written in Italian as Le bizzarre avventure di GioGio and Parte 5 when translated within Japan.[TL Note 1]
    • For the 2018 anime, the title is instead translated into English as JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. "Vento Aureo" has been used in nearly all Japanese media until this point, such as on the cover of the 2005 re-print of the manga,[2] the text and decorative endleaves of JOJOVELLER, the box set for the bunko editions, and in the trailers for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle.[3][4] The English language localizations of All Star Battle[5][6] and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven[7] also use the Italian phrase "Vento Aureo" as the title of Part 5 within the game, whereas the English phrase "Golden Wind" was the name given to Gold Experience for international distribution.
      • The Italian language editions of Part 5 use the title "Vento Aureo"[8] while the French editions use the title "Golden Wind" (in English).[9]
      • The second ending sequence for the anime ends with a shot of a 3D animated reliefW sculpture depicting the main characters. The text "Vento Aureo" and "GIO GIO" is featured at the top of the sculpture.
  • The conclusion of Part 5 is similar to the conclusion of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather with mafiosos embracing Michael Corleone's hand.
  • In this part, many characters' names are derived from Italian foods instead of music references.


  1. In Italy, the manga series as a whole is actually named Le bizzarre avventure di JoJo.
