Strategy and Preferred Items

Jeff is the easier of the two starting characters to play. His high HP allows him to tank attacks and his handgun can shoot from long range, allowing easier avoiding of threats.

  • Items that increase speed, such as Soap Bar and Choco Bar, will allow Jeff to get around with greater ease.
  • Items that reward taking damage, such as Spiked Bracelet and Spiked Boot, can be used more due to his high health.

  • Despite his incredibly aged appearance Jeff is actually only 43 years old.
    • It's been said that something in his past caused this graying but as of now we don't know what that is.
  • His license on the character select screen has his name as "Jeff Trucker".
    • This was confirmed to be his full name by the devs in a livestream.
  • Jeff has been called Digby's father in passing/jest by the some of the dev team. However, it's also been said that they are unsure if that was ever made officially canon.
    • This is why the image of Jeff and Digby playing catch was more than likely included in the ending credits.
  • Jeff's pose at the end of the true ending cutscene is based off of Jotaro. His B Costume's pose is not based off of any jojo character, making it the only pose not referencing anything.
