Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is a franchise that has spanned 25 years.

Surprisingly, they've aged quite well.
As you can see, JoJo's All Star Battle is not a typical fighting game, even by Japanese standards. Iggy is a DLC character, and he has some quite unusual techniques. And believe me, there's a reason I chose not to post the GIF version.
