Sukuna is a cursed spirit and one of the main antagonists of Jujutsu Kaisen.

Reigning as the prominent figure in the realm of curses, he is widely recognized as the King of Curses.

Over a millennium in the past, he existed as a human sorcerer whose formidable might led to the unanimous desire among fellow sorcerers to defeat him.

When he died, he transformed into a cursed spirit. His curse was so potent that, despite having been deceased for over a thousand years, his body did not completely disintegrate.

Instead, his 20 fingers remained intact and were preserved in grave wax.

These were considered cursed objects that grow strong when gathered. One day, Yuji Itadori swallowed one of Sukuna’s fingers and became the vessel of the King of Curses.

Aside from those that were mentioned, there are still a lot of things fans don't know about Sukuna, especially about his mysterious cursed technique.

As a powerful cursed spirit, Sukuna is expected to have a powerful technique under his sleeve.

His first ability to be revealed was the manipulation of his body and now Yuji’s body.

After Yuji becomes a vessel, the jujutsu sorcerer oftentimes develops another set of eyes below his original pair that are closed when he is in control of his body.

Sukuna can also develop a mouth in different parts of Yuji's body. Whenever Sukuna is in control, he can do whatever he wants with Yuji's body, including ripping out the young sorcerer’s heart.

Sukuna can also use the Reverse Cursed Technique so he can heal others and himself.

This was proven in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 8 when the King of Curses healed Yuji’s hand and once again in Chapter 117 when Sukuna healed Megumi.

This special ability shows how advanced Sukuna’s skills are as only a few skilled sorcerers can do this.

In Chapter 119 of the manga, it was explained that Sukuna has two slashing attacks called Cleave and Dismantle.

Cleave is an attack that can be adjusted based on the victim’s ability while Dismantle is a slashing attack.

While it may appear that Sukuna's technique usually focuses on slashing, his use of fire in his battle against Jogo in the Shibuya Incident arc is quite intriguing.

The way he manipulates flame and whips out the Fire Arrow to take down Jogo confirms that Sukuna has the uncanny ability to adapt or copy others' cursed techniques.

Interestingly, Gege Akutami has not delved deeper into Sukuna's Fire Arrow technique in the manga yet.

Hopefully, we will learn more about this spectacular fire technique and several more versions of it.
