destroy the vampire who caused his daughter Holly to become ill.
Joseph uses a Weapon Stand, but he fights fairly effectively without it as

4.0-How to use Joesph Joestar effectively

Joesph Joestar,at first,may seem like a hard character to use,especially
the 360 moves. But,once you get the feel of him,you can let loose. Try
to not to use his Hermit Web to often,as it always usually gets blocked.

Joesph's Hop Kick(F+A) is excellent when you feel like "poking",but
don't use it to often,as it can be countered easily.

Joesph's jumping Heavy attack is perfect for jumping in. Use this to
your advantage,such as comboing into a Masters Teachings super.

Without his stand,Joesph is just as good. Use the Turqouise Blue
Overdrive if you want to keep your enemy away.

His Master Teachings is one of the dopest supers in the whole game.
So flashy and cool,although it's not really that powerful. Use it
when the you see an opening,and when the opponent is near death,for
some good results. A good way to set up a Masters Teachings is to
go up to them,press the Medium Attack button,Joesph will uppercut them
into the air,then before the land,do the command for the Masters
Teachings,and BAM! You've just shown them that age has plenty of

A good stragety against Vanilla Ice(Iced) is right before he activates
his stand,jump up quickly to him,and press the medium attack button.
Joesph will do a sort of uppercut move that will knock him into the
air,then,just keep on doing this until he runs out of life! This works
ESPECIALLY WELL in the corner. He'll keep trying to break out of it,
which is actually pretty funny. But once you start,don't stop! If you
do,he'll just recover quickly and hit you easily.
