There are a few things that even hardcore fans of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure do not know. In the following section, you can find some of those characters.
Jojo Is the Inspiration for Kenshiro
Kenshiro is a popular character. The character finds its inspiration from Bruce Lee. The bare fists of Kenshiro can make the enemies down at any time.

Stand and Ripple of Joseph Joestar
Joseph Joestar, the grandson of Johnathan Joestar, is the only character in this animation series to have “Stand and Ripple” power. However, Joseph was a struggling character at the beginning. Due to his carelessness, his stature as a warrior was not great. As he matured, he turned into a southpaw like his grandfather. At the cost of his left hand, he had mastered the Ripple.
What Does Yare Yare Daze Mean?
The phrase “Yare yare Daze” became popular with Jotaro Kujo, the student of Joseph. Later, Joseph had troubles with Jotaro, and the reason probably is the karma. The way Joseph had treated Lisa Lisa was not good. Hence, he ended up having trouble with Jotaro. During the fights, Jotaro hardly wanted to do anything. Whenever he used to fight, he used to shout “Yare Yare Daze”. There is no literal meaning to this phrase.
Josuke Higashikata Is Araki’s Favorite Character
In JoJo Merch, Araki had never revealed his favorite character. In various interviews, the question was asked to him, and he calmly avoided giving a particular answer. But, it seems that Josuke Higashikata is the favorite character of Araki.
