Your favourite Part 4 characters?

Postby ColonelMagenta943 » Sun Jun 19, 2016 3:49 pm

1. Kira (Best antagonist to have graced the shonen demographic)

2. Rohan (one of the best characters Araki has ever created)

3. Hayato

4. Shigechi

5. Josuke (a cool protagonist but not part of top 3 favourite JOJO)

6. Jotaro


Yuuya (he redeemed himself in Enigma arc).

Mikitaka (my headcannon is that he's an Alien stand user)

Counting only the characters who debuted in Part 4.

(1) Kira Yoshikage. My favourite villain so far and one of the more intriguing characters.
(2) Koichi Hirose. The sheer volumes of growth he goes through DiU makes it seem like he's the protagonist at some points.
(3) Okuyasu Nijimura. One of the best bros, so amusing every time he's on screen.
(4) Yuuya Fungami. Despite only appearing twice, he left quite an impression on me.
(5) Rohan Kishibe. Here for similar reasons as Koichi. I didn't think I'd like him at first but he really grew on me.

Honourable mentions: Josuke and Mikitaka, rivals for 6th place if there was one.

1) Joseph Joestar because he's already the best Jojo.
2) Koichi Hirose because he's a great character whose evolution is really interesting to follow and he's such a nice guy.
3) Rohan Kishibe because I like his irreverent attitude.
4) Yukako Yamagishi because she is a well made yandere and her arcs were both great.
5) Mikataka, he's such an oddball, I like the fact that he's ambiguously human.

I'd love to put him up there too but I don't feel like he has enough screentime and characterization to warrant it, although what we do see of him is such a perfect, respectful portrayal of a frail and aged JoJo.

I refuse to judge Joseph and separate his appearances.
Joseph in part 4 is still the Joseph I followed in the previous two parts.
He changed yet he is still the Joseph we know.

1) Yukako, for being a genuinely unique (as far as JoJo goes) and tough character whose story arcs were entertaining to read.
2) Kira, for his understated appearance, his goal of having a "quiet life" being at odds with his uncontrollable desire to kill women for their hands, and pretty much everything about Killer Queen.
3) Otoishi, for being just a really fun antagonist who possesses one of my favourite Stands in the series.
4) Reimi, for feeling like a real teenage girl with a sympathetic goal, and the badass scene where she reveals to Kira that he's dead and effectively sends him packing for Hell. Also, she's probably the prettiest girl Araki's ever drawn.
5) Mikitaka, for his cloud-cuckoo-lander personality and general kindness. I just wanted to give him a big hug when he revealed his reason for helping Josuke and Okuyasu escape Super Fly. He's just so innocent and well-meaning.
6) Fungami, for being another fun antagonist with a cool attitude and interesting Stand. I would've liked to see more of him. The Highway Star arc, in particular, gave us one of the best Stand 'fights' in all of JoJo, as well as some of the funniest and most badass moments.

Honorary mention goes to Jotaro, especially during the Ratt arc, for actually becoming more than just the strong, silent badass-type who beats the shit out of the opponent. His relationship with Koichi was especially touching, and he's just generally used better in Part 4 than he ever was in Part 3 (in which the only time I actually liked him was during the D'Arby arcs, which I believe nailed his character).

You'd think Josuke would be more popular as the protag of prety much everyone's favourite part.

Well, he's a good, solid character, but apart from his "What did you say about my hair?!" quirk (which gets old fast; even Araki stopped using it after the Rohan arc), he's just your average teenage boy with a knack for making money. He's vastly overshadowed by characters like Koichi (who got more character development than anyone else, really) and Rohan. It's a bit like the problem Jotaro had in Part 4, except Josuke does do a lot more than "Yare yare" and "ORA ORA" people (seriously, Jotaro only ever began to get interesting in the fight with the older D'Arby) while trying to act cool.

I think Josuke is one of the last reasons Part 4 is so great; the entire Part 4 cast is one of the best in JoJo (even if some of them don't do much past their introductory arc).

Josuke was a little bland sometimes.

Hayato is criminally underrated.

He's a loveable character but as a character, he didn't progress the story unlike Rohan, Koichi or Jotaro. I still like the characters antics.

Same. But he had so much potential.

I pretty much feel the same way about Josuke. I felt like even Okuyasu's growth overshadowed Josuke's. :nope

Joseph was also criminally underused.

All three were forgotten for Koichi and Rohan.

Josuke is super entertaining, and he does have some nice character moments, but sadly he stops there. Somewhat the same problem Kira had, they aren't able to shift properly to their Hero Villain dynamic until the very end, mainly my reason why they are not my favorite JoJo or final villain. No complaints about their fight, though.

Thus why Koichi, Rohan and Jotaro are my favorite characters in this part, they are both entertaining and fun while also fitting their role of heroes very well.

Part 4 should have went on longer. :angry
I wished we had more Tonio, Joseph and Mikitaka antics.
Kira's arcs were one of the best parts of this series, there was a pic of Araki wishing the best for the character somewhere around the site. :rotfl
Okuyasu and Josuke interactions were very lovely however.

Part 4 is a character driven series and the Seinfeld's X Twin Peaks description is perfect for his this series (I'd give this series a rating of 9.6 out of ten, rounded out to 10).

1. Yoshikage Kira (is the best antagonist in Jojo)
2. Josuke (best Jojo)
3. Okuyasu (second best bro-jojo)
4. Rohan
5. Koichi
6. Hayato (the real hero)

Watching the anime made me realise just how much better Jotaro fits as the mentor character rather than the protagonist. As a result I like him immensely more from Part 4 onwards.
