JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is one of the biggest spectacles in the world of anime. Spanning multiple seasons that take place all over the world, the series follows the Joestar family as they take on enemies using a strange power called Stands. 

Who are the best characters in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure? That depends on your personal preferences. Do you go for dramatic and intense villains like Dio Brando and Kars? Then those two delectably evil gentlemen might appeal to you. What about hotheaded rebels with a wicked sense of humor? In that case, you probably like Joseph Joestar. 

This list will only be featuring characters from the anime. While the manga includes some truly unforgettable figures like Jolyne Cujoh and Johnny Joestar, those characters won't be included here.

Every character has something to offer, so vote up the ones you like the best.
