Jujutsu Kaisen has a heap full of powerful characters especially with sorcerers and curses fighting around. The supernatural horror shōnen anime series of Jujutsu Kaisen brings about the powers of every character along with the thrill and suspense mixed up in one anime series giving a different taste to anime fans and viewers with curses, occult, and mystery happening all at once.
In Jujutsu Kaisen, every living being is naturally having Cursed Energy flow through the body coming from negative emotions and because these are beyond the control of normal people, they lose their Cursed Energy giving way to the birth of the Curses. And the curses, these are purely evil creatures who are just so vile, they kill whenever they can.
To counter these powerful curses, there are the Jujutsu sorcerers who have the ability to control and manipulate their Cursed Energy where they can reduce the release and use these energies like those in the high ranks who can refine their Cursed Energy to perform Cursed Techniques fitting for the user of their lineage.
MAPPA made it happen for Jujutsu Kaisen to reach the screens as it is from the pages of the supernatural shōnen manga series of the same name by Gege Akutami which is published in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump. Jujutsu Kaisen also has a light novel series of its own. Just early this year, Jujutsu Kaisen manga ranked second in Oricon's weekly manga ranking.
The anime has been consistent with high ratings ever since the inception of the show making it worth watching. Given that it is down to only one episode and that it just opened a new story arc from the manga series, the Death Painting Arc, the chance of Jujutsu Kaisen scoring a second season is quite high and could have another 24 episodes to run the whole anime series.
Here are some of the most powerful characters in Jujutsu Kaisen, ranked based on their strength.
Panda is known for being a corpse of a mutated curse where he was created by Masamichi Yaga, the principle of Jujutsu High. Being from a curse, he studies with the students in Jujutsu High. Among his kind, Panda's strength reverberates because he can fully exorcise the curses through the use of brute force. Panda has enhanced endurance, enhanced strength, high intellect, and most of all, he has a really colorful personality coupled with humor.
Toge is really powerful especially with his ability to make people bend to his own will. He can force his words on anyone with the use of his "Snake and Fangs" seal which could be found on his tongue and cheeks: the cursed speech. His words can command anything. But because of this, Toge has to wear an extended collar to cover his mouth. His powers can also do some damage to his throat as well, a cough syrup works on him, though.
8. Megumi Fushiguro
Megumi is one of the most essential characters of the show and he just keeps on getting stronger. His teacher is Satoru Gojo and when Megumi entered Jujutsu High, he is already a grade 2 sorcerer, way ahead of others. Megumi can summon the Divine Dogs, a pair of shikigami to chase any curse and bite them to death.
This is from the Ten Shadows Technique used by Megumi. He can summon any animal and the most powerful that he can summon is the Eight Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga, one that only Megumi can summon. With Megumi, it would be like you'll be fighting with two because two heads are better than one, right?
7. Kento Nanami
Kento is a highly intelligent sorcerer and is one of the teachers of Yuji. Although he seems indifferent, Kento is very steady when in a fight. He has a blunt sword and he can also determine the weak points of the enemies surrounding him. He calls upon the maximization of his cursed energy through the Binding Vow.
6. Yuji Itadori
Yuji is the main protagonist of the show. He was just another student who wasn't supposed to be in the sorcery world but that is, until, he consumed one of Sukuna's fingers. He's new to sorcery and he has the potential to reach the top spot, the most powerful character but given that he is still learning, for now, he's still behind a few characters in terms of strength.
Yuji still has potential to harness but he's really strong considering he was able to host Sukuna and keep him within his control. Yuji now wields Divergent Fists and Black Flash which he uses to attack his opponents and take them down. He is still not at the top of the list as Yuji still needs to learn more to better refine his abilities and best all of the characters in the future.
Hanami is a cursed spirit who infests everything coming from the wrong humans put on to nature. Hanami is not easy to fight with because he can regenerate his limbs, he can manipulate plants, and he can take on any Jujutsu attack that is put on him. Of all, he uses Domain Amplification which allows him to neutralize the attacks thrown on him.
Aoi, basing on his physique, easily translates strength. He is the beast of the battle with his enhanced physical strength coupled with his use of the Black Flash. More than that, Aoi has the Boogie Woogie, his technique that when he claps, he could switch places wherever he wills. He also has Simple Domain under his list of capabilities enabling him to neutralize any cursed energy in the area where he prefers.
Mahito is a cursed spirit who is so twisted, he plays with human emotion. He is the curse born out of the hatred humans have between one another and he uses this to eradicate humanity and replace people with cursed spirits. Mahito has a lot of abilities to wreak havoc with: Idle Transfiguration which gives him the ability to shape souls the way he wanted them to, he heals himself making it hard to kill him, and he plays with souls where he can merge them and create disfigured humans. So messed up.
Sukuna is the King of the Curses, so why isn't he number one? Well, there's a reason for that. The first is that someone can control him and that's his host, Yuji. But that doesn't mean he is not powerful. He carried so much power through the ages that even when all the sorcerers in the Golden Age got together to defeat him, he survived being in fragments of 20 fingers.
Having survived that, he must really be powerful, and they're sure is more to him than what meets the eyes. Sukuna is known for his ability and mastery of all things poison that he knows how to use poison to his advantage.
1. Satoru Gojo
Satoru Gojo is the teacher of Yuji and the sorcerers in the Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College. It is believed that he is the most powerful sorcerer as his abilities are really powerful that it is centered on the atomic level: he can manipulate space there, he can use it to slow down the pace of someone coming after him, he can will gravity to create a space vacuum, and he can use the center of gravity to use its pull to his will.
Not only that, but he can also use all those the other way around for repealing curses and even erasing whatever is in the path that he wanted to eradicate. He teaches Yuji how to wield his powers and with Yuji being the potential most powerful character in time, that would be because of Satoru.
Who do you think is the most powerful of them all?
