JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future/Old Joseph

From SuperCombo Wiki
Joseph-Challenger.png

Joseph Joestar (ジョセフ・ジョースター Josefu Jōsutā) is the main protagonist of Battle Tendency, a core ally in Stardust Crusaders, being a grandfather of the story's main protagonist, Jotaro Kujo. Joseph is the last character in the story of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure to use Hamon, a fighting art focused on breathing to create energy waves, originally invented to fight against vampires.
He combines Hamon with the power of his new stand, Hermit Purple. The community calls him Old Joseph or Oldseph for short.

Old Joseph is one of three Weapon Type users in the game, and unlike many other characters, his primary focus is on playing defensively and making every hit count; often hitconfirming into custom combo and/or command grab whenever possible. His pseudo-grappling style attacks don't really work that well in a fast-paced game like JJBA: HFTF, thus putting him into the lower part of the tiertist. Still, he is a very honest fighter with a unique playstyle you might find interesting to try out.

Pros Cons
  • All around solid normals and good hitconfirms
  • Command grab does unscaled damage, can be comboed into, and leads to hard knockdown
  • Consistent 50/50 okizeme across the cast, which leads to more oki
  • Can run instead of performing dashes
  • High defense
  • Strong Guard Cancel in Stand ON mode
  • Stand ON roll that lacks i-frames which will only act as a blight upon your gameplay
  • Big crouching hurtbox makes it hard to avoid some moves
  • Slow movement
  • Command grab, despite looking powerful, isn't very useful outside of combos and okizeme
  • Slowest wakeup in the game, tied with Young Joseph
  • Okizeme is easily punished if the opponent guesses right
