Each part follows the journey of a member of the Joestar bloodline on their various journeys that take place across the multiple countries, multiple points in time and even multiple universes.
Jonathan Joestar, the heir to the Joestar Lineage, has his life turned for the worse when, Dio Brando, the son of the man who saved Jonathan's father's life is adopted into their family and Dio decides to try and ruin Jonathan's life and kill his father so Dio can get all of the inheritance.
During a fight, both Jonathan and Dio learn that a Stone Mask that their father owns has mysterious powers which Dio learns more about when he uses it on a homeless man and it turns him into a vampire. Dio then uses the Stone Mask to turn himself into a vampire and murders Jonathan's father.
After a fight when Dio gets burned alive in a mansion, Jonathan meets Will Anthonio Zeppeli, a Hamon Warrior who teaches Jonathan how to gain and use Hamon, life energy that the Sun emits to kill zombies and vampires so that Jonathan can kill Dio and stop him from taking over the world.
Fifty years after the events of Part 1, Joseph Joestar, grandson to Jonathan and Erina, moves to New York City after Speedwagon moves him and Erina over to the United States of America after becoming an oil tycoon.
Joseph finds out that Straizo has killed Speedwagon and has become a vampire after putting on a Stone Mask found in an Aztec temple with a mysterious lifeform living in the stone of the temple. After killing Straizo, Joseph learns that Speedwagon is still alive and is being held captive by the Nazis who are interrogating him to learn more about the mysterious lifeform that was found in the Aztec temple. As it turns out, the mysterious lifeform is a being known as a Pillar Man, a race of super-powered lifeforms that ruled the Earth before most of them died.
Fifty years after Part 2, Jotaro Kujo, Joseph's grandson and son of Joseph's daughter Holy Kujo and a Japanese Jazz Musician, locks himself in prison after learning that he is possessed by a violent evil spirit and his grandfather, Joseph and his friend Muhammed Avdol visit Jotaro in prison and reveal that it isn't an evil spirit possessing him it is a manifestation of Jotaro's soul which aids and protects him called a Stand. Joseph reveals to Jotaro that he gained a Stand because DIO has emerged from the ocean after the events of Part 1, he has placed his head on Jonathan's neck and has gained a Stand which has given Stands to both Jotaro and Holy.
After Jotaro defeats Noriaki Kakyoin, a student who was being controlled by DIO to kill Jotaro, Holy falls ill because she can't handle her own Stand which is killing her with the only way to save her is to kill DIO before fifty days pass. After figuring out what spices of fly is in the picture of DIO, Jotaro, Joseph, Avdol and Kakyoin head off to Egypt to kill DIO and save Holy's life. While on their journies they gain Jean Pierre Polnareff, a French man looking to avenge the death of his sister and Iggy, a dog that the group kidnap to help them on their journies.

Power of the Verse
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure contains many weak characters in terms of sheer brute force with all of the high tier characters being Large Town Level (Which includes Powerful Stands, Powerful Hamon Warriors, Powerful Vampires and Pillar Men) with weaker characters ranging from Below Average Human Level to City Block Level (Fodder Vampires, Weak Hamon Users, Weaker Stands and most Stand Users). Aside from a few other characters that are City Level and even Island Level. The God Tiers of the verse are the characters that range between High Universe Level and High Multiverse Level+.
In terms of speed feats, most of the characters fall into the MFTL speed since they are comparable to Silver Chariot which moved faster than a beam of light and blocked several beams of light at the same time. Characters from Part One and early Part Two are Hypersonic by comparing to Jonathan who reacted to a high-pressure water jet.
- Hamon: Hamon is the power that the main character's of Parts 1 & 2 use. It is accomplished by breathing, which absorbs Hamon energy (Otherwise known as Life Energy) into their body and uses that energy to attacks which travel into the opponent's body. It can be stored in living beings, water and metals. It can be used to nullify the regeneration of vampires. Hamon can be used to heal injuries as major as a broken neck and heal other beings.
- Vampires: Vampires are the main villainous race of Part 1 & 2. They have supernatural strength, speed, durability, senses and regeneration. They have full control over their bodies to various effects, they can lower the bodily temperature to freeze their opponent's body, fire off liquid like a high-pressure water cannon from their eyes and can stick their flesh into others to control people. Vampires are easily destroyed by sunlight or powerful light-based attacks.
- Stands: From Part 3 onward every major character possess the ability to summon a being known as a Stand. Stands are the physical manifestation of the user's soul that the user fights with. Unless they are bound to a physical object (Such as a vehicle or the user themselves) these are always invisible to all Non-Stand users. Stands have a vast array of abilities such as several forms of Time Manipulation, Spatial Manipulation, Causality Manipulation, Reality Warping.
- Stands come in various forms, Close-Range Stands which are powerful but cannot move far from its user, Long-Range Stands which are weaker but can travel further from its user, Automatic Stands which can move as far as it wants from its user and any damage that the Stand takes the user doesn't take, however, the Stands are predictable in nature, Bound Stands which are bound to physical objects which means that anyone can see and interact with them but the user can use them as an actual weapon to protect themselves and are typically bigger than other Stands, Colony Stands which are a group of small Stands that look identical which are much weaker, however, the user takes less damage when one his harmed because of the fact there are multiple Stands, these can range from six to one hundred and Sentient Stands which are Stands that the user can control but also can think for themselves and can come up with plans that the user might not have thought of while protecting.
