JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future/Jotaro/Introduction

From SuperCombo Wiki

Jotaro Kujo (空条 承太郎 Kūjō Jōtarō) is the protagonist of Stardust Crusaders and the main character in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage For The Future. He is the first character introduced with a Stand, Star Platinum.

One day Jotaro claims to be possessed by an evil spirit and locks himself at a prison. His grandfather, Joseph Joestar and his assistant, Muhammad Avdol pay him a visit and explain to him that his evil spirit is actually an emanation of his spiritual power, called a Stand and that its sudden appearance is related to the awakening of Joestar's sworn enemy, the vampire DIO. Jotaro's mother, Holly, also becomes affected by this and develops a Stand that drains her of her life due to her spirit not being powerful enough. After defeating the first two assassins sent by DIO, Kakyoin, and Polnareff, Jotaro saves their lives from removing DIO's flesh buds that controlled them. Now the party of 5 travels to Egypt together to find and stop DIO before Holly dies due to her Stand.

Jotaro is an absolute powerhouse in HFTF. Often listed as a top 5 character due to his incredible damage potential and dominant up-close game.
Using his Star Finger Oki, Jotaro can pretty much end the round with a good knockdown that leads into a true 50/50 against most characters. He heavily relies on being in his opponent's face, but that doesn't mean he can't stand his ground outside of it, having access to both far-reaching dashing attacks that can confirm into full combos and one of the strongest supers in the game - Stand ON Star Breaker. Jotaro is a very scary character to fight, especially if you can convert into big damage consistently.
Simple enough to use on low-level play while still having a high skill ceiling for the player, combined with his overall strength makes Jotaro a perfect pick for those who want to play a rushdown-based character with a very strong neutral.

Difficulty: Average/Above Average

Pros Cons
  • Very strong and fast Normals, including a 1f jab. Hard to get in on and hard to get off you.
  • Has simple combos that take away 1/4 of your opponent's life, as well as more advanced Touch of Death combos.
  • An abundance of hard knockdowns and a volatile 50/50 with Star Finger lets him end rounds in two touches!
  • Easiest Stand Crashes in the game that can lead into Touch of Deaths, having your stand out against Jotaro is a major risk!
  • Stand ON Star Breaker, arguably one of the strongest supers in the game. An invincible, long range whiff punish tool that can be feinted and hits like a truck.
  • Insane meter gain from just whiffing moves and performing combos.
  • Has some of the strongest Tech Chasing in the game, there's no escape!
  • Low Stand Gauge, meaning he can be Stand Crashed easily.
  • Limited range, some matchups rely on star breaker reads or well-spaced poking to get in.
  • His Star Finger okizeme isn't consistent across the cast, and he has to use other means of mixing some of his opponents.
