If you assumed Diamond Is Unbreakable would be more digestible since it takes place in a small Japanese hamlet, think again! The fourth arc of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is like one giant sitcom, with an ensemble cast so big you would think it’s Cheers.
Thankfully, All-Star Battle R includes a JoJo Glossary that lists many of Morioh’s residents and their Stands’ abilities. However, these entries are locked until you defeat Yoshikage Kira and his enhanced alias, Kosaku Kawajiri, in All-Star Battle Mode. But, if you’d rather not have a “Heart Attack,” we transcribed the glossary’s content below!
WARNING: This guide contains spoilers from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable.
We alphabetically organized this guide into four sections. You can jump through these sections via the Table of Contents.
Stand: Chili Pepper. A budding young rock guitarist. He steals the "Bow and Arrow" and half-heartedly starts experimenting with Stands. He's retired after losing to Josuke Higashikata and Okuyasu, ending up in jail for theft.
Bow And Arrow
Those hit by these Arrows may develop Stand abilities, or may be killed if they do not possess the right qualities. The arrowheads are fashioned from fragments of a meteorite that hit the Earth millions of years ago.
The cliffside where Koichi and Yukako fought. It's famous for the urban legend about a young woman who jumped to her death, only to be bounced gently along the rocks below with a boing. Located in the northeastern part of Morioh Town.
Akira Otoishi's Stand that can manipulate electricity and travel at high speed through outlets and along power lines. It is a remote Stand that becomes more and more powerful as it absorbs charge.
Yoshikage Kira's Stand that turns objects it touches into bombs. Its left hand forms the autonomous, heat-seeking Heart Attack missile. In the latter half of the story, the Stand develops Bites the Dust, which can blow up time itself.
Okuyasu Nijimura's Stand that can erase the space occupied by whatever its right hand grabs. The resulting void closes up, therby creating the effect of instantaneous movement. No one, not even Okuyasu, knows where the erased objects go.
Shigekiyo Yangu's Stand. Its body is made up of 500 units and can harvest things with ease. Each unit is weak, but they exhibit power when swarming enemies. Damaging a single unit will still not harm the host.
A schoolboy, and son of Kosaku Kawajiri. He realizes his father is Yoshikage Kira in disguise. He battles against Kira even as he is suffering at the hands of Bites the Dust.
Rohan Kishibe's Stand, able to turn anything into a book and read all its innermost thoughts and history. By writing in the margins, he can control his targets, even rewriting events of their past.

The home of Yoshikage Kira. Josuke Higashikata and company visit the place in pursuit of Kira, only to discover another Bow and Arrow, different than the one belonging to Keicho Nijimura.
User of the Stand Reverb and one of Josuke Higashikata's classmates. Weak and unreliable at first, he slowly earns the trust of his friends, and even some enemy Stand users. Yukako Yamagishi's affections for him are eventually reciprocated.
Actually Yoshikage Kira disguised as businessman Kosaku Kawajiri, in whom is awakened the time-resetting ability, Bites the Dust. Kawajiri's son Hayato brings him up against Josuke Higashikata and company, and in the end he's run over by an ambulance, then dragged into the forbidden alley with his Stand.
Yukako Yamagishi's Stand. It allows her to control her hair like a limb. It can extend the hair to cover a building or make it strong enough to break glass. Damage turns it grey.

The home of Josuke Higashikata and company, with many famous landmarks. Josuke and his friends pursue serial killer Yoshikage Kira, who is at large in the town, eventually seeing him off with their hearts of gold. A town of the same name appears in Part 8.
