Who Is The Strongest Character In Jujutsu Kaisen?

Jujutsu Kaisen Yuji Itadori and Aoi Todo

Jujutsu Kaisen is one of Shonen Jump’s most beloved series. With its 2020 anime adaptation, Jujutsu Kaisen only became more popular. The series follows Yuji Itadori, an athletically-inclined high schooler who stumbled upon the supernatural world after his occult research club accidentally unleashed a cursed spirit by unwrapping one of Sukuna’s cursed fingers.

Yuji swallowed it to save his clubmates and his new friend, Megumi Fushiguro. He became Sukuna’s vessel and enrolled at Jujutsu High to fight cursed spirits and keep the King of Curses in check. Jujutsu Kaisen is full of powerful characters, but some are stronger than others.

20 Miwa

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>

Miwa is a grade 3 sorcerer. She’s super hard on herself and even gave herself the nickname “Useless Miwa,” even though she’s far from it. She showed off her impressive swordsmanship during the Goodwill Event during her fight against Maki. Unfortunately, Maki overpowered her and broke her sword.

Miwa also participated in the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons and helped her classmates ward off Suguru’s mob of cursed spirits. Miwa doesn’t have an innate cursed technique, but she’s capable of activating a simple domain that spells instant injuries for whoever walks inside.

19 Principal Gakuganji

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Gakuganji from Jujutsu Kaisen holding his guitar.

Principal Gakuganji’s sorcery grade is unknown, but he showed off some of his skills during the Goodwill Event when the gang needed to ward off Mahito’s group. His innate technique is literally electrifying.

Gakuganji uses his body like a guitar amp, and every strum of his electric guitar sends soundwaves of cursed energy out into the atmosphere, swiftly getting rid of any cursed spirit in his radius. Nobody expected an electric guitar to become a cursed tool, but it just proves that anything is possible in Jujutsu Kaisen.

18 Noritoshi Kamo

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Noritoshi Kamo from Jujutsu Kaisen.

Even in the manga, not much has been seen of Noritoshi Kamo. However, it’s obvious that he’s strong. Kamo is a semi-grade 1 sorcerer and inherited the Kamo clan’s Blood Manipulation technique. He also blends jujutsu with his expert archery skills.

Kamo proved his strength when he stood on a level playing field against Megumi and his Ten Shadows Cursed Technique. After that, he proved his strength when he fought alongside Megumi and Inumaki when Hanami attacked. Fans hope to see more of Kamo in the future.

17 Kokichi Muta

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Kokichi Muta, or Mechamaru, from Jujutsu Kaisen.

Kokichi Muta is one of the many tortured souls fans are introduced to in Jujutsu Kaisen. Kokichi has an immense amount of cursed energy that he can manipulate remotely. Unfortunately, he has a very sickly body and Heavenly Restriction, so he must use his Puppet Manipulation to attend school as Ultimate Mechamaru.

Kokichi showed off his skills during his fight against Panda at the Goodwill Event. Despite the severe toll his cursed technique takes on his body and mind, it’s clear why Kokichi is already categorized as a semi-grade 1 sorcerer so early in his training.

16 Nobara Kugisaki

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>8 Times Nobara Kugisaki Stole The Spotlight In Jujutsu Kaisen

Nobara isn’t called the “Girl of Steel” for nothing. Wielding a hammer, nails, and occasionally a voodoo doll, Nobara has defeated some of the series’ most terrifying curses and has severely injured others. Nobara showed off just how far she’s willing to go to win a fight during her battle alongside Yuji against Eso and Kechizu.

Nobara challenged the Death Painting siblings to a deadly game of chicken after stabbing herself with a nail to drain their poison. Obviously, she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty if it means she’ll come out victorious in the end. Nobara is currently classified as a grade 3 sorcerer, but it’s clear that she’ll continue rising through the ranks.

15 Panda

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jujutsu Kaisen's Panda in his Gorilla Mode.

Panda is not actually a panda. Panda is, however, stronger than even he fully comprehends. Wholly unique among jujutsu sorcerers, Panda is an abrupt mutated cursed corpse created and raised by Jujutsu High’s principal, Masamichi Yaga. Besides being highly intelligent, Panda is incredibly strong and capable of exorcising curses through physical strength alone. His naturally high grade of Cursed Energy lets him fortify his body, making him a formidable defensive fighter.

What especially sets Panda apart is his three inner cores: Panda, Gorilla, and a currently unidentified “sister” mode. In Gorilla Mode, Panda’s strength and speed intensify, and he unlocks his ability to use Unblockable Drumming Beat — sending shockwaves past his opponent’s defenses. Already a grade 2 sorcerer, there’s no telling how powerful he’ll become after fully unleashing all three of his cores.

14 Megumi Fushiguro

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jujutsu Kaisen's Megumi Fushiguro hands together

Often stealing the spotlight, Megumi certainly lives up to his family legacy. As a first-year student at Jujutsu High, he’s already considered a grade 2 sorcerer whose potential has attracted the attention of the King of Curses, Sukuna. Descended from the notable Zenin Family, Megumi inherited his line’s Ten Shadows Technique, allowing him to use shadows to summon ten shikigami to fight and devour curses.

The full lengths of Megumi’s Ten Shadows cursed technique are yet to be explored. Even so, Megumi’s enhanced physicality, tactical intellect, and advanced martial arts skills make him one of the most formidable Sorcerers in the series.

13 Yuji Itadori

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Yuji (and Sukuna's mouth) from Jujutsu Kaisen.

Yuji Itadori’s strengths have yet to be fully revealed at this point in Jujutsu Kaisen. However, it’s always well-known that he’s naturally gifted with impressive physical strength and agility. He’s a fitting match to become Sukuna’s vessel, especially since he has the willpower to keep the King of Curses in check.

Yuji’s sheer strength and martial arts expertise, combined with his cursed energy manipulation, make him on par with many of the greatest grade 1 sorcerers. He’s only eaten three out of Sukuna’s 20 fingers, but he’s already incredibly strong. Fans are excited to see how Yuji’s power grows as he consumes more cursed fingers.

12 Maki Zenin

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Maki fighting Hanami in Jujutsu Kaisen.

Maki Zenin can’t control cursed energy, and she can’t see cursed spirits without her glasses. Regardless, she’s proven herself a strong sorcerer. Maki’s currently stuck with a grade 4 classification because of the power the Zenin clan holds in jujutsu society, but everyone agrees she should at least be classified as a grade 2 sorcerer.

Maki is an impressive combatant and a master of weapons. However, a polearm seems to be her main weapon of choice. Maki is skilled enough that she’s able to train others — like when she trained Yuta or the first-year students.

11 Toge Inumaki

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jujutsu Kaisen's Toge Inumaki preparing to use his Cursed Speech.

Some characters fall victim to Heavenly Restriction to prevent their full powers from coming out. However, in Toge Inumaki’s case, his restraint is a choice. Often considered quiet and unassuming, the second-year student is one of the most naturally powerful and talented students at Jujutsu High.

Toge comes from a prominent sorcerer family and inherited the Cursed Technique, Cursed Speech, from his line. Toge was born with the “Snake & Fangs” seal on his tongue and cheeks. This infuses cursed energy into everything he says, forcing everyone who hears him to obey his commands. Since his attack commands can range from the relatively harmless “Sleep,” to the fairly lethal “Get Crushed,” Toge limits his vocabulary to rice ball ingredients to protect everyone around him.

10 Aoi Todo

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jujutsu Kaisen's Aoi Todo.

Jujutsu Kaisen has received praise for its versatile view on what makes a person strong. In a mystical society, not everyone needs an exceedingly showy ability to be considered a powerful sorcerer. Kyoto third-year, Aoi Todo, is one of the strongest Jujutsu High students and ranked a grade 1 sorcerer despite being born into a non-sorcerer family.

Although Aoi Todo possesses a great amount of cursed energy, he primarily uses it to fortify his physical attacks, becoming a powerhouse on the battlefield. While the anime hasn’t featured him much so far, he’s already got a formidable reputation from single-handedly defeating five grade 1 and a special grade cursed spirits during the Kyoto Nite Line attack.

9 Kento Nanami

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jujutsu Kaisen's Kento Nanami using his Vow Overtime.

Although Kento Nanami doesn’t seem like the strongest jujutsu sorcerer, his understanding of cursed energy manipulation is otherwise unmatched. Kento’s innate technique, Ratio, utilizes a seven-to-three grid that forcibly creates a weak point for Nanami to exploit. His technique is surprisingly effective, allowing Nanami to slice through opponents with his signature blunt blade.

On top of his masterful swordsmanship, Nanami utilizes Binding Vows to customize his Technique, seemingly to avoid exerting more effort than what’s absolutely necessary. By evoking Overtime, Nanami’s energy output increases after his shift as a Jujutsu High employee ends. Nanami’s jujutsu magic is all about practicality, and the man prefers to work smarter rather than harder.

8 Choso

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jujutsu Kaisen's Choso.

Fans were immediately interested in Choso after Jujutsu Kaisen’s first season finale. They were intrigued by his punk rock appearance and wanted to know more about his relation to the other Death Painting Wombs, Kechizu and Eso. Jujutsu Kaisen manga readers grew to love Choso after seeing him in action.

Choso’s Blood Manipulation makes him the strongest Death Painting Womb thus far. He can poison people with his blood, draining their stamina and eventually depleting their oxygen. He can also convert cursed energy into blood. Choso’s can also use his blood to stab and cut his opponents by hardening it and sending it in their direction. He can turn it into various different weapons or even make it explode like a supernova.

7 Suguru Geto

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Suguru Geto from Jujutsu Kaisen 0.

Fans haven’t seen the real Suguru Geto in the anime quite yet. In the second season, his identity will be expanded upon. However, in Jujutsu Kaisen 0, fans were properly introduced to him and quickly realized how powerful he was. Suguru was once a student at Jujutsu High, but he eventually became known as the most notorious curse user after his hatred for non-sorcerers drove him to villainy.

Suguru’s technique doesn’t look like much, but it’s actually terrifying to think about. He can control cursed spirits by consuming them after turning them into small orbs. Suguru combined a collection of over four thousand cursed spirits into one entity to attack Yuta in the movie. Suguru’s Cursed Spirit Manipulation is one of the most terrifying techniques in the series.

6 Jogo

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jogo activating his Domain Expansion in Jujutsu Kaisen.

Unfortunately for Jogo, it seems like he constantly finds himself in the worst matches for fights. This is partially his fault, since he constantly charges headfirst into battles against some of Jujutsu Kaisen’s strongest and expects that he’ll win.

Still, it’s important to remember that Jogo is a special grade cursed spirit. He literally blew his fuse and incinerated a diner full of people. His cursed techniques are certainly nothing to scoff at. In fact, Jogo’s abilities even won him Sukuna’s praises after their battle.

5 Mahito

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jujutsu Kaisen's villain Mahito activating his Domain Expansion.

Mahito is a special grade cursed spirit and a major thorn in the protagonists’ side. He prides himself on having manifested from humanity’s hatred. His Idle Transfiguration is equally overpowered and grotesque. By manipulating the physical shape of a person’s soul, he can reshape a person’s body, most often using it to turn people into what look like cursed spirits and dolls.

By transforming his soul, Mahito can effectively heal from life-threatening wounds, regrow his limbs, change them to suit his needs better, and complete an endless variety of physical transformations to aid him in combat — allowing him to hold his own against the likes of Nanami and Yuji in a two-against-one ambush.

4 Rika Orimoto

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Rika Orimoto producing a creepy smile

Since Jujutsu Kaisen 0 took place a year before the events of Jujutsu Kaisen, Sukuna was basically irrelevant to the story. However, he was still regarded as the King of Curses. When there’s a king, there’s always a queen looming in the background.

In Jujutsu Kaisen’s case, its Queen of Curses is Rika Orimoto. Rika is a special grade vengeful cursed spirit who, as Satoru Gojo suggested, proves that love is the most twisted curse of all. She’s haunted Rika ever since she died in a horrible accident. Yuta unraveled her curse in Jujutsu Kaisen 0, but she still stuck around to help him fight later on in the series.

3 Yuta

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Yuta Okkotsu on the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Poster

Even though Satoru is the strongest sorcerer, Yuta has even more cursed energy than him. Yuta was the protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen 0. When he was introduced, he was haunted by Rika, a vengeful cursed spirit. Upon enrolling at Jujutsu High, he was already classified as a special grade sorcerer without any prior experience.

After honing his skills and endlessly training, Yuta became one of the series’ strongest sorcerers. He even found a way to unravel Rika’s curse, so she could peacefully move on to the afterlife. Before fans learned about him in the prequel movie, all they knew was that Yuta was the only second-year Megumi deemed respectable. Todo also acknowledged Yuta’s skills.

2 Sukuna

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Sukuna on his throne in Jujutsu Kaisen.

Not too much is known about Ryomen Sukuna thus far in the anime. What has been revealed, however, leaves no question about his awe-inspiring strength. In life, it took the effort of all sorcerers to defeat him.

Even so, Sukuna’s body was too great to be fully destroyed, leaving 20 fingers behind as cursed objects, each containing an equal fraction of his power. Despite being trapped inside Yuji Itadori’s body and limited to a fraction of his power, Sukuna can easily defeat Special Grade Curses, and his Reverse Cursed Technique can regenerate Yuji’s limbs and even bring him back from the dead.

1 Satoru Gojo

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jujutsu Kaisen's Satoru Gojo.

Satoru Gojo is the strongest sorcerer on the planet. He comes from one of the three great jujutsu families. He was the first to inherit both the Six Eyes and Limitless techniques in 400 years. Fans are amazed every time Satoru works his magic in the series, and all of his cursed techniques are on another level of pure flashiness.

While Gojo’s abilities have yet to be substantially explored, he has displayed exceptional skill against special grade curses and advanced control over his Technique — including the ability to activate his Domain Expansion, Unlimited Void, with little to no effort. Since Gojo’s Limited Technique allows him to manipulate space at an atomic level, the full reaches of his cursed energy are sure to be awe-inspiring.
