|Death Battle Combatant|
The Stardust Crusader
|Origin||JoJo's Bizarre Adventure|
|Appearance(s)||Jotaro VS Kenshiro|
Jotaro Kujo is one of the main protagonists of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. He appeared in the 90th episode of DEATH BATTLE, Jotaro VS Kenshiro, where he fought against Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star.
Jotaro Kujo is the 3rd starring member of the Joestar lineage, predated by the fallen Jonathan Joestar and his grandfather Joseph Joestar. He grew up as a normal young man until the age of 17, where he was imprisoned for injuring a few gang members. Believing that his power could not stretch to that level so suddenly, he went under the belief that he had been possessed by an evil spirit, and would not leave the prison even after his time was complete, saying that this "evil spirit" was too dangerous for the outside world, and showcasing this by showing the police various items that he had obtained and, most notably, stealing the officer's gun and shooting himself with it, only for the bullet to stop right before his head.
However, this would change when his mother Holy would call upon his grandfather Joseph Joestar (along with his friend Muhammad Avdol) to get him out. Reuniting, the two revealed to him that they had similar spirits, and that they were known as stands.
Finally leaving the cell, he was informed that Jonathan Joestar's ruthless vampire brother Dio Brando had returned, sporting his brother's body. Later on, after meeting another stand user named Noriaki Kakyoin, his mother Holy would end up gaining a stand - but being too weak to utilize it, it became a disease, slowly killing her. The group came to the conclusion that they would have to travel to Egypt and kill Dio in order to save her. Leaving her with the Speedwagon Foundation, they set off on their journey.
