In JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Jotaro seems able to move even while Dio stops the time. On the other hand, Dio can't when Jotaro stops the time.

Jotaro planned to stop when the limit of Dio stop time was finishing.

This happened when Jotaro did finished blow after he survived from the road roller attack.

And when Dio stop time, Jotaro don't use ability but can feel the situation in time stop world, so, Jotara can trigger the ability while he is in Dio stop time by use his time limit between the Dio stop time is triggering.


I think Dio can't move in Jotaro's stopped time after the Road Roller attack because he already used up his stopped time.

I assume Dio would actually be able to move in Jotaro's stopped time if he didn't already use up all his stopped time during the Road Roller attack before, but since that's the only time Jotaro uses his stopped time during the battle against Dio we can just assume that he would be able to move in that case.


Actually, you don't need to think so hard to understand it. Just consider Jotaro fighting Dio at the start, where Dio throwed knives at Jotaro. Jotaro uses his time_limit(Capacity in seconds to stop time) and can't move after it, until time resumes again. This same applies to Dio, he can't stop time again until time resumes.
