It wasn't before but Bridget's Overdrive Super certainly looks like a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure reference in Guilty Gear Strive

Especially when paired with that sound clip

Yes, the whole "is that a JoJo reference" meme has been played out for arguably years now, but we can't exactly help it when it appears to be legit.

Bridget's return to Guilty Gear Strive this week also brought in an updated version of her Loop the Loop Overdrive, and the Super does indeed appear to be a reference to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

While it may be too quick to notice immediately during normal gameplay, modder TonicSpirits recently showed off what happens when 2 Bridgets clash their adorably ferocious teddy bears together overlayed with JoJo sound effects.

The rapid punches of the Rogers look pretty darn similar to the flurries we see in the manga / anime franchise for protagonist stand users like Jotaro Kujo, Josuke Higashikata and Giorno Giovanna.

Just replace Dio's road roller drop at the end with the bears, which comically sends the characters flying away.

Roger coming in to throw blows wasn't part of Bridget's Super in past titles, so this is a new inclusion.

This is far from the first time Guilty Gear has paid homage to JoJo over the years with fighters like Zappa, Zato-1 and Axl even copying Jotaro's iconic point pose for his time-stopping One Vision Overdrive.

So why stop now?
