Jotaro Kujo is the protagonist of Part 3 of the manga JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, written by Hirohiko Araki.

Backstory

Jotaro Kujo is the grandson of Joseph Joestar, the previous JoJo's Bizarre Adventure protagonist. One day, Jotaro severely injured four gang members, which caused him to believe he was possessed by an evil spirit, since he'd never shown the amount of strength to do that before. After he turned himself to the police, his grandfather came and explained to him what was going on. Dio, the vampiric adoptive brother of Joseph's grandfather Jonathan Joestar, has reawakened and gained a Stand, a manifestation of his fighting spirit that he can summon, and since Dio's head is attached to Jonathan's body, the rest of the Joestar bloodline awakened Stands on their own. However, Jotaro's mother also awakened a Stand, which was slowly killing her due to her inability to control it, which is caused by her unwillingness to battle, and her gentle nature. This led to Jotaro, Joseph, and some other Stand users to travel to Egypt, defeat Dio, and save Jotaro's mother.

Powers & Abilities

  • Master Strategist: Due to his intelligence, Jotaro is a master strategist. he is able to plant a magnet on Dio by tricking him to know where he was, and was able to trick Enyaba despite being cautious to not mess it up. 
  • Star Platinum: Jotaro's Stand, Star Platinum, is a manifestation of his fighting spirit that he can summon to fight for him. Like most Stands, it can only be seen by another Stand user. It is one of the strongest and most versatile Stands in the series, despite its simple power set.
    • Superhuman Strength: Star Platinum has immense physical strength. It can lift a jeep carrying four people with one hand, rip apart steel bars, and shatter giant diamond-hard teeth with its punches.
    • Superhuman Speed: Star Platinum is considered massively faster than light, being able to throw thousands of punches in seconds, rival the armored Silver Chariot in speed, and catch point-blank bullets.
    • Precision: Star Platinum's precision is astounding, being able to remove objects embedded in people's skulls without ill effects and catching bullets in its fingers.
    • Self-Preservation: Star Platinum's main instinct is to protect Jotaro from harm, and it will shield Jotaro from harm at all costs.
    • Enhanced Eyesight: Star Platinum has eagle-like eyesight. It's able to see from four kilometers away, and follow card shuffles performed by professional gamblers.
    • Star Finger: Star Platinum can extend its middle and index fingers at opponents to stab them from far away.
    • Time Stop: During the final battle with Dio, Star Platinum learned it had the ability to stop time for five seconds, with only Jotaro and Star Platinum being able to move during the stopped time. The time stop is able to reach out to the edges of the observable universe, but it also strains Jotaro's heart when it's in use, so he can't repeatedly use it. The only downsides are that it requires a short cool down between uses and that it strains and weakens Jotaro's heart when used.
