Opening theme: N/A Ending theme: "Bloody Stream" by Coda Characters Spoiler Joseph Joestar Voiced by: Benjamin Diskin Joseph is a trickster, less honorable than his grandfather Jonathan, and constantly scheming ways to humiliate his opponents. But it’s this scheming nature where his intelligence shines through, as he is usually able to predict his opponent’s moves and nature just by observing them. He is now the last Hamon user standing against Kars, but with his enemy now obtaining literal godhood, does Joseph even stand a chance? Kars Namesake: The Cars (band) Voiced by: Will Barrett The Ultimate Lifeform. Having obtained the Red Stone of Aja, Kars achieved his goal of becoming a being above all other life on Earth, becoming not just a superbeing, but a god. He is invincible, no longer affected by the sun, and seemingly unstoppable. Now he intends to make humanity bow beneath him or die, beginning with JoJo. Elizabeth Joestar (Alias: “Lisa Lisa”) Namesake: Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam (band) Voiced by: Wendee Lee Elizabeth Joestar was rescued as an infant by Jonathan Joestar aboard the ship which sent him and Dio to their watery grave. She was raised by Straizo and trained from a young age in the ways of Hamon. As a young woman, she fell in love with Jonathan and Erina’s son, Royal Airforce pilot George Joestar II, and the two had a child named Joseph. However, George was killed by a superior officer, who was in fact a Dio-created zombie who had survived through the decades. When Elizabeth learned of this, she assassinated the officer, but was labeled as a traitor and murderer, to be hunted throughout England all her days. Thanks to the Speedwagon Foundation, her name was changed to Lisa Lisa and she took up residence in Italy, becoming a master teacher of Hamon like her adopted father. While initially cold and distant towards Joseph, due to her inner turmoil of abandoning him as an infant, she cares deeply for him. Following Caesar’s death, she and Joseph were the only ones left to oppose Kars in his quest, but she was quickly incapacitated during her one-on-one fight with him. Rudol von Stroheim Namesake: Erich von Stroheim (actor) Voiced by: Dan Woren Thanks to the finest technology German science has to offer, Major von Stroheim was revived as a fully-functioning cyborg soldier. With impressive weaponry and his German pride, Stroheim is dedicated towards stopping the threat of the Pillar Men once and for all. Robert E.O. Speedwagon Namesake: REO Speedwagon (band) Voiced by: Keith Silverstein Following Jonathan’s death, Speedwagon set out west for America and struck it rich in the oil industry. With his newfound wealth, he built the Speedwagon Foundation, an organization which secretly investigates the paranormal and is dedicated towards assisting the Joestar family in whatever way possible. Smokey Brown Namesake: Smokey Robinson (musician) Voiced by: Robbie Daymond Smokey is a homeless NYC street kid who has recently become friends with Joseph. Being black during the 1930’s, he faces persecution everywhere he goes, but has been taken in by Joseph and Erina who see him as an equal. Erina Joestar Voiced by: Michelle Ruff Joseph’s grandmother and widow of Jonathan. On the outside, she is a strict no-nonsense woman, but underneath shows the same kindness towards the less fortunate that her husband displayed. Suzi Q Namesake: Susie Q (song) and Suzi Quatro (singer) Voiced by: Stephanie Sheh Suzi Q is Lisa Lisa’s assistant who possesses no Hamon abilities, acting more as a maid and errand girl. She has a crush on JoJo, and is holding him to a promise that they’ll see each other again. Meshina Namesake: Jim Messina (musician) Voiced by: Michael McConnohie Lisa Lisa’s servant who is well versed in Hamon. Alongside his departed friend Loggs, Meshina acted as an instructor for Joseph and Caesar during their training in the weeks leading up to the fights against the Pillar Men.

This time The final battle to decide the fate of the world concludes! Will Kars stand as the god of the world, or can Joseph find a way to topple him?
