Josuke Higashikata is the protagonist of Part 4 of the anime/manga JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.


Josuke is the 16-year old illegitimate child of Joseph Joestar and Tomoko Higashikata, the hot-tempered daughter of a policeman in Morioh, Japan. When Joseph's grandson Jotaro Kujo arrives in Morioh in the summer of 1999 to inform Josuke of his lineage and and to warn him of the arrival of a dangerous serial killer, Josuke is thrown face-first into a series of bizarre adventures and mysteries in order to protect his hometown.

He's a friendly, clever, and dependable kid, the sort who always tries to do the right thing, even if he doesn't seem to be the heroic type himself. However, he has a weakness for cash, and if you insult his hair, may the Lord above have mercy.

Powers & Abilities

  • Crazy Diamond: A short-range Stand similar to Jotaro's Star Platinum, but with the ability of being able to restore anything to it's previous state.

It may also fuse objects, such a person with a rock. This Stand can deliver blows at a speed faster than light.
