Jujutsu Kaisen, a name that has been doing the rounds lately in the anime community. Officially, it first premiered on October 3, 2020, and has been climbing the ladder of fame and quality ever since. Now this one is an ongoing anime with its next episode coming up tomorrow on 5th March 2021. A lot of anime fans are watching it and a lot are wondering if they should. If you ask us, the answer is, yes. You definitely should watch this anime if you have the patience to wait for great episodes coming out serially. What is it about?
Yuji Itadori is a gifted teen. Yuji joins the Occult Research Club at his school simply because it allows him much freedom compared to the track race team, even though he has a natural talent for running. On the side, he has a dying grandfather to look after. Soon, the inevitable comes to pass and his grandfather succumbs to his fate leaving behind two statements for Yuji. “Die surrounded by people,” and “always help people.” Moving forward, Yuji tries to carry on with his life when he crosses paths with a sorcerer who tells him that his Occult Research Club has opened up a sealed talisman which has attracted Curses to the school.
Curses are creatures that take form from negative emotions and gradually gain power by consuming magical powers from talismans or sorcerers. Desperate to protect his friends and Megumi—the sorcerer, Yuji swallows the talisman and becomes the host of the powerful curse Ryomen Sukuna. The next thing Yuji knows is he’s been spiraled into the world of Curses and Sorcery. He has to be exorcised and-in-the-process, killed to get everyone rid of the Curse. But Megumi’s teacher Satoru Gojo has plans to delay his death sentence.
If this description doesn’t get you, then this listing most certainly will. Here is a list of the top ten strongest characters from Jujutsu Kaisen.
He is a Mutated Cursed Corpse created by the principal of Jujutsu High—Masamichi Yaga. He studies along with the students and has a vibrant personality with his own humor and taste. Firstly, he is the best of his kind, so there are no Mutated Cursed Corpses stronger than him. Secondly, he is so strong that he’s fully able to exorcise Curses through physical strength alone. He has enhanced strength, enhanced endurance, and high intellect. So basically, he is capable of dealing with many aspects of a problem. This makes him worthy of the tenth spot.
9. Megumi Fushiguro
The sorcerer we talked about in the description, Megumi is one of the most important characters in the show. He is a student of Satoru Gojo, who we’ll be talking about later in the list. He entered the Jujutsu High as a grad 2 sorcerer. Even the King of Curses himself acknowledges Megumi’s potential. So what can he do? He uses the powerful Ten Shadows Technique which allows him to create magical beings called Shikigami out of shadows.
These Shikigami aid him in battle against his enemies. He can summon Divine Dogs, two shikigami which can chase down and maul any Curses in their way. With this technique, he can also summon an owl, a serpent, an elephant, a toad, an army of rabbits for distraction, and a powerful being known as Eight Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga. Note that the last one is the most powerful and most difficult and not a single shikigami user has been able to summon him except Megumi.
A powerful character who can bend people to his will. Toge has the ‘Snake and Fangs’ seal on his tongue and cheeks, this allows him to use his words and force them onto people. This cursed speech can literally make people do anything he says. If he says Explode, they’ll explode, if he commands ‘Get Twisted’ their bodies will twist without missing a beat. Toge doesn’t speak much in general so that he doesn’t accidentally affect someone with his cursed speech. He wears an extended collar which covers his mouth. It may remind you of Beast Jeanist from My Hero Academia.
He also carries around a cough syrup to help his throat because his powers often damage and strain it.
7. Yuji Itadori
The protagonist of the show Yuji Itadori only accidentally stumbles into the Sorcery world. Having consumed one of Sukuna’s fingers, Yuji becomes extremely powerful with a lot of Cursed Energy flowing through him. It seems he is somehow able to keep Sukuna under control which in itself is a bizarre thing to have happened. As already mentioned he has a great lot of Cursed Energy apart from physical and mental strength. He is also proficient with a powerful attack called Divergent Fists and Black Flash which dispel Cursed Energy enough to take down opponents. Yuji has a lot of potential because he can control Sukuna. There might be someday we see him as the strongest character of the anime. But until then, Yuji gets a solid number 7.
6. Kento Nanami
Kento also teaches Yuji along with Satoru but is completely opposite to him in personality. He is reserved and seems indifferent to most things. Even in stressful situations, he stands steady as a rock. This alone shows how confident he is with his experience. He uses a blunt sword and has some great techniques up his sleeves. He can pinpoint and create weaknesses in his enemy and the environment around them. He can grant himself greater Cursed Energy through a Binding Vow, as well as maximize the effects of Cursed Energy he can release. He is intelligent and knows how to put all his powers to use. This makes him worthy of the 6th spot.
An infestation of everything wrong humans does to nature. He is a Cursed Spirit, with a crazy reserve of Cursed Energy. He is so durable that supposedly he can withstand any Jujutsu attack thrown at him. He can regenerate limbs, manipulate plants made out of cursed energy, and use Domain Amplification—a technique that renders all cursed energy attacks neutralized and useless. A powerful antagonist indeed.
4. Aoi Todo
Aoi can be a beast on the battlefield. He enhances his physical strength mainly with his cursed energy. He also uses the aforementioned Black Flash energy which distorts spatial areas in the enemy’s view. He utilizes a technique named Boogie Woogie which allows him to switch places of anything he targets with a clap somewhat like Sasuke’s Rinnegan ability in Naruto. He also uses Simple Domain, which neutralizes cursed energy in the area it consumes.
Mahito is a twisted Cursed Spirit who loves to exploit humans and toy with their emotions. His group’s ultimate goal is to eradicate humanity and replace them with Cursed Spirits instead. He is the manifestation of humans’ hatred for one another. He can use Idle Transfiguration, which allows him to shape souls to his will. So he can heal himself, tragically disfigure enemies, and basically do a whole lot of creative things to himself and others reshaping their souls. He can merge souls together and create a severely transfigured human created out of many merged souls who can attack enemies on Mahito’s behalf. A fearsome foe without question.
2. Ryomen Sukuna
The King of Curses, Sukuna himself is our number 2. Not a whole lot has been revealed about him except for the fact that he’s extremely powerful. It is said that in the Golden Age all the sorcerers had to come together to defeat Sukuna. And even after all that, his body still survived in fragments as twenty fingers. One of which, as we know was consumed by Yuji. He is known as the King of Poisons as well because of his mastery over every known poison.
1. Satoru Gojo
As we promised, here is Satoru Gojo on the number 1 spot. Said to be the most powerful Sorcerer, Satoru is a teacher at Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College. He can manipulate space at an atomic level, slow things down to such an extent that they will never reach closer to him. He can use a gravity well sort of space vacuum and manipulate the center of gravity causing things to be pulled to a certain point. He can also inverse this technique and repeal things away and use a powerful force that erases anything in its path. It didn’t take a lot of thinking before putting him on our number 1.
So these were the top ten strongest Jujutsu Kaisen characters. Do you agree with this list? Let us know in the comments.
