If you want to understand JoJo’s bizarre adventure how it is nowthen you must know Stardust Crusader. This arc of the long-running manga introduced important new characters and concepts, such as Jotaro Kujo and Stands. Additionally, this arc wraps up many loose ends regarding the Joestar/DIO feud.
Unfortunately, unlocking the Stardust Crusaders JoJo Glossary in All-Star Battle R requires you to win three boss fights in ASB mode. And the most brutal fight is a five-star difficulty fight between Noriaki Kakyoin and DIO. Luckily we fought those battles and put the glossary content together for you!
