To survive as a jujutsu sorcerer in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen, knowing your strength compared to your enemy is a must. When coming up against the strongest cursed spirits, it helps to have the strongest sorcerers, but who are the special grade sorcerers in Jujutsu Kaisen?
What is a Special Grade Sorcerer?
All sorcerers are ranked depending on their ability, with most new students starting at grades three or four. As they progress, they go through the ranks.
However, very few sorcerers will ever make it to special grade, which is reserved for anomalies and generally dangerous people.
The special grade sorcerers have the strength to wreak havoc on the world if they put their mind to it, which makes these characters so interesting!
One of the most recognisable characters from the series, it’s clear from the very start that Satoru Gojo isn’t your average jujutsu sorcerer.
For those that don’t know, Satoru Gojo is one of the main teachers at Tokyo Jujutsu High. He also serves as a protector and a mentor for many new students, including Yuji Itadori as he manages his development alongside being Sukuna’s vessel.
Often, Satoru comes across as a laid-back and comedic person. However, behind his blindfold not only lies immense power but a particularly angry and dangerous individual.
Thanks to Satoru Gojo’s power, he is widely regarded as the strongest sorcerer in Jujutsu Kaisen. He has the ability to activate Domain Expansion at will multiple times in a day, alongside exceptional martial arts skills. He’s also very tactically aware in combat, making him almost impossible to overcome in a fair fight.
The most dangerous thing is that Satoru knows that he is the strongest. His self-awareness makes many in Jujutsu society uncomfortable, as Satoru can completely wipe everything out if he so wished.Advertisement
Suguru is one of the main antagonists of the Jujutsu Kaisen series. He received his training alongside Satoru Gojo and was once considered his equal before going astray.
Suguru carries a burning hatred for normal human beings that developed during his time in training, believing them to be a lower race compared to sorcerers.
Suguru is an exceptional fighter in hand-to-hand combat and has incredible cursed energy that he can manipulate expertly. However, what makes him most dangerous is his cunning, which surpasses anybody else. Suguru often forms pacts with cursed spirits to launch surprise attacks on jujutsu sorcerers.
Yuta Okkotsu has recently shot up in popularity thanks to his starring role in the prequel story Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
Similar to Yuji, Yuta Okkotsu was an ordinary kid with no intention of becoming a jujutsu sorcerer. However, when he becomes haunted by the cursed spirit of his childhood friend Rika, he ends up under the tutelage of Satoru Gojo.
Yuta is much less experienced than any other special grade sorcerer and initially struggled to control his power. Due to his connection with Rika, it’s believed that Yuta actually has more cursed energy than anyone else, including Satoru.
Despite being naturally timid, when forced into a corner, Yuta is able to utilise all his power, seemingly comfortable with killing enemies to protect his friends.
Yuki is arguably the most distant and normal of the four special grade sorcerers. She operates separately from the Jujutsu High system that most sorcerers are part of, choosing to go her own way to create a world in her image.
While she doesn’t appear much in the story until the Shibuya Incident Arc, she is one of the main influences behind the outspoken Aoi Todo. He convinced him to become a jujutsu sorcerer, provided some early training that resulted in his trademark scar, and gave him the signature phrase “What kind of girls do you like?”
Similar to Suguru Geto, Yuki has her own ideas about the future of mankind, believing that humanity needs to break away from cursed energy entirely.
Given how little she appears in the story, the exact nature of her abilities is unknown. However, from what we do know, she’s considerably more powerful than regular jujutsu sorcerers, as her rank would suggest.Advertisement
We can’t wait to see more of these awesome fighters in action when Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 arrives!
