Josuke Higashikata (東方 仗助, Higashikata Jōsuke?), the Suke (助 Suke?) in his name may also be read as "Jo", is the protagonist of Diamond Is Unbreakable. He is the fourth JoJo of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series.
Josuke is a high school freshman residing in the town of Morioh. As Joseph Joestar's illegitimate son, he is also Jotaro Kujo's half-uncle despite being much younger. After the death of his grandfather, he takes it upon himself to protect his beloved town from malevolent Stand users.

Josuke is a tall, handsome young man of average build. He wears a small stud in each ear. The feature most important to him is his well-maintained pompadour, styled after that of an unknown man who saved his life as a child. His pompadour has a tendency to become spiky with his mood, such as when he is irritated or angry.
Josuke wears a dark, modified Japanese school uniform. His jacket conforms to his body, extending to the middle of his thigh, accompanied by a pair of wide-legged pants. He keeps his jacket unbuttoned and pinned aside, revealing a light undershirt with a short zipper on each side of his chest.
Josuke wears a number of metallic/golden emblems. On the left of his collar he wears a modified anchor, and on his right a row of two small hearts. Pinning his open jacket to his chest on his right is a peace sign (☮), and on the left is a heart (occasionally enclosing a palm, like on Jotaro's hat). He wears a gold band at both wrists, above his sleeves (under more elaborate pieces in several illustrations).
Valuing footwear, Josuke wears a pair of Mr. Junko original socks and ¥25,000 black Bally shoes.
Josuke's most common color scheme consists of either a dark blue or purple uniform and a green or yellow undershirt.
