Top 25 Powerful Characters in Jujutsu Kaisen Anime

Jujutsu Kaisen, a blockbuster, reaffirms anime viewers’ faith in Shonen storytelling. Featuring stunning visuals by MAPPA Studios, it offers everything a Shonen fan desires: intense battle scenes, an engaging plot, and exceptional characters. From Gojo Satoru to Maki Zenin, each character is meticulously crafted and gradually endears itself to the audience. Curious about the most formidable characters in Jujutsu Kaisen? Look no further; we’ve ranked the top 25. Discover the strength of your favorite character.

Spoiler Warning: This article contains spoilers about characters featured in the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, up to the end of the Shibuya Incident arc. It also includes one manga reference (not a spoiler). We recommend watching Jujutsu Kaisen anime Seasons 1 and 2 and the JJK 0 movie to preserve your experience.

We’ve listed the 25 most powerful characters in Jujutsu Kaisen’s sorcerer universe (anime-only):

25. Noritoshi Kamo

Our first encounter with Noritoshi Kamo was at the Kyoto Goodwill event, where he engaged in a 1-on-1 battle against Megumi. Hailing from one of the three prominent families in the Jujutsu world, Kamo is the successor of the Kamo Clan, inheriting their cursed blood manipulation technique—a skill for manipulating one’s blood and utilizing blood-infused items.

During the event, Kamo demonstrated his adeptness at blood manipulation by integrating it with his bow and arrows. He exhibits precise control over the trajectory of his arrows and various other objects. Utilizing blood packets at his disposal, he can swiftly construct cages or traps, providing a diverse array of offensive and defensive strategies.

Noritoshi possesses significant cursed energy, likely comparable to a Grade 1 cursed spirit. He can manipulate his blood to enhance his physical abilities and vitality. Undoubtedly, Noritoshi is a promising sorcerer from the Kamo Clan. However, he ranks towards the end of our list as we await further demonstration of his cursed techniques.

24. Takuma Ino

Takuma Ino was introduced in Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie and later debuted in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2. He holds the rank of Grade 2 sorcerer and is closely associated with Nanami, requiring Nanami’s approval to advance to Grade 1. Nanami highly respects him, which speaks volumes about his abilities.

In the Shibuya Incident arc (JJK Season 2 Part 2), we witness Ino’s formidable powers against formidable opponents. Ino excels in cursed energy manipulation and hand-to-hand combat. Takuma’s Auspicious Beasts Summon mirrors Megumi’s Ten Shadows technique but allows him to summon and embody the beasts’ traits.His self-confidence and reliance on Nanami hindered his progress. We anticipate seeing more of him in future seasons.

23. Mechamaru (Kokichi Muta)

Due to his Heavenly Restriction, Kokichi Muta was born with a weak and fragile physique (opposite to Toji’s). It’s a cursed restriction impacting cursed energy, exchanging enhancements or restrictions to physical appearance. His body may have been constrained by this restriction. However, with his vast cursed energy and puppet manipulation jujutsu, he employs a mechanical-cursed corpse, Mechamaru. In season 2, he regained his original body by spying on the Jujutsu schools, aided by Mahito. Sadly, his sudden death followed shortly after.

During the first season, in his confrontation with Panda at the Kyoto Goodwill event, the deployment of Ultimate Mechamaru disregarded his physical frailty. We now witness the culmination of his abilities in his original form, nearly resulting in Mahito’s demise. This transformation endowed the mechanical body with capabilities akin to Iron Man (a prominent member of the Avengers in Marvel), including Ultra Shield, boost, cannon, ultimate cannon, and other enhancements. Mechamaru, classified as a semi-grade 1 sorcerer, demonstrated his prowess conclusively in his final battle, solidifying his status as one of the most formidable characters in JJK.22. Maki Zenin

Maki endured mistreatment and rejection from her family due to being born a non-sorcerer in one of the three major sorcerer families. She departed from the Zenin clan to pursue greatness in the Jujutsu world. Presently, she remains at Grade 4 sorcerer rank as the Zenin clan dominates the Sorcerer society, impeding her advancement. However, despite her reliance on glasses to perceive cursed spirits and struggles with cursed energy manipulation, Maki compensates with formidable combat prowess and mastery of cursed weapons.

Fighting against Hanami and showcasing her skills during the Kyoto Goodwill Event, Maki defied expectations. Despite being labeled the weakest during the Shibuya Incident arc, she fought relentlessly. Alongside her combat prowess, Maki demonstrated her ability as a mentor by training Yuta and Megumi.

Despite criticism, Maki persists and will inevitably rise, akin to a phoenix (IYKYK!). She emerges as a formidable contender among the anime’s strongest characters.

21. Panda

Initially mistaken as an actual panda, Panda is not one, but rather a mutated-cursed corpse crafted by Principal Masamichi Yaga of Tokyo Jujutsu High. Independent, Panda possesses its own reservoir of cursed energy, eliminating the need to draw from the Principal. Furthermore, Panda can exorcise curses using solely physical prowess.

Panda operates with three cores within its form: the balanced-type Panda, the Power-type Gorilla, and a third, a hybrid of Triceratops or Rhino. Currently, Panda holds the rank of Grade 2 sorcerer in the Jujutsu realm.

Panda transforms into more powerful and swifter versions by swapping his cores, thanks to his vast cursed energy supply. Only two Panda variants have appeared in the anime so far, with a potential third in the upcoming season. Due to his body’s nature, Panda naturally possesses strong physical and defensive abilities.

20. Atsuya Kusakabe

Like other characters on this list, Atsuya Kusakabe debuted in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2. He is a Grade 1 sorcerer and serves as an instructor at Tokyo Jujutsu High, akin to Gojo and Utahime. According to Mei Mei, he’s the only sorcerer to reach Grade 1 without an innate technique. A highly skilled swordsman, his prowess was quickly recognized by Kenjaku during the climax of the Shibuya arc.

Easily, he secures a spot on the strongest Jujutsu Kaisen characters list. However, his self-centered nature and cowardice hinder his progress. Despite his formidable powers, he prioritizes his own safety above all else, leading to poor decision-making and a tendency to flee or avoid battles.

19. Hanami

Hanami, alongside Jogo and Mahito, ranks as a special-grade cursed spirit in JJK. Driven by a peculiar desire to avenge nature’s mistreatment, Hanami harbors a lethal impulse to kill. In an anime flashback, Mahito acknowledges Hanami’s strength with the words, “You’re much stronger, aren’t you?”

Despite starting at Jujutsu High alongside Yuji and Megumi, Nobara Kugisaki stole the finale spotlight. Just when we thought her ferocity couldn’t be topped in Jujutsu Kaisen, she showcased her A-game. Nobara exhibited her strength and powerful “hairpin” technique in her battle with death-fighting siblings Eso and Kechizu, thoroughly dominating them. Her straw doll technique, complemented by her cursed tools—a hammer and nails—proved formidable.

During her confrontation with the death-womb siblings, Nobara showcased her tactical brilliance. She possessed the acumen to swiftly alter circumstances. Just as we anticipated her ascent in the rankings, her overconfidence proved detrimental. Nonetheless, she exhibited valor throughout the Shibuya arc, driven by genuine altruism toward her companions.

17. Toge Inumaki

The Inumaki clan’s “Cursed Speech” technique was passed down to Toge Inumaki, another skilled character in the JJK world. His tongue and face were marked with the Snake & Fang seal at birth since he inherited the cursed speech. This seal enables him to infuse his cursed energy into whatever he says, and the person has to follow his orders. For instance, Toge saying “blast away” to Hanami caused him to be thrown out of the way. Toge is currently a semi-grade 1 sorcerer in the Jujutsu world, which speaks about his levels.

The cursed speech is an extremely potent technique that needs a lot of cursed power and endurance. Toge has enough cursed strength and energy to combat a special-grade cursed spirit, as shown in the anime. Toge’s inherited techniques give his opponents a hard time, as they’re difficult to predict.

But he lacked screen time in the Shibuya Incident arc in JJK, despite contributing with his powers. Unfortunately, Sukuna’s rampage nullified his efforts, resulting in the loss of many lives and his left arm. Nevertheless, Toge remains a beloved character and ranks among the top sorcerers.

16. Naobito Zenin

Naobito Zenin, a Grade 1 jujutsu sorcerer, debuted in the second season after making a cameo in a flashback scene during season 1. Former head of the Zenin clan and an alcoholic prioritizing clan interests, he ultimately assisted during the Shibuya Incident arc. Displaying lightning-quick powers, he revealed himself as one of the fastest sorcerers, though incomparable to Gojo.

Naobito, head of the Zenin clan, showcased his tactical intellect through his innate technique, Projection Sorcery, and cursed energy. His mastery of cursed techniques was remarkable, cementing his status as one of the series’ strongest characters.

15. Yuji Itadori

Itadori Yuji, the main character of the JJK anime, strives to rapidly increase his strength and power. Even prior to consuming Sukuna’s fingers, he displayed superhuman strength and athleticism in earlier episodes. However, upon becoming Sukuna’s vessel, he began to excel as one of Jujutsu High’s talented students. He is among three sorcerers whom Satoru believes can eventually surpass him, alongside Yuta and Hakari, showcasing Yuji’s abilities and qualities.

Itadori possesses incredible reflexes, superhuman strength, and uncontrollable speed, establishing himself as one of Jujutsu Kaisen’s premier hand-to-hand combatants. Notably, he has consumed fifteen of Sukuna’s fingers. Itadori has held his own against formidable opponents like Choso and Mahito in Shibuya. However, he remains in his learning phase, aspiring to reach the pinnacle of his abilities. Itadori stands as one of anime’s emerging talents.

14. Megumi Fushiguro

Megumi Fushiguro, a Jujutsu prodigy, swiftly ascended to Grade 2 sorcerer status despite being just a first-year student at Tokyo Jujutsu High. Descended from the formidable Zenin clan, Fushiguro inherited the rare Ten Shadows Technique. Given his mother’s second name, he is known as Fushiguro rather than Zenin. Sukuna recognized Megumi’s hidden potential, ultimately saving him from Mahoraga and later capturing him for his own interests, as depicted in the upcoming seasons.

Megumi harbors significant cursed energy and excels in both weaponry and hand-to-hand combat. Among Jujutsu sorcerers, he exhibits exceptional endurance and the ability to summon various creatures, including the Divine Dog, Nue, Serpent, Toad, and Elephant. His formidable Ten Shadows Technique is complemented by his partial utilization of the “Chimera Shadow Garden” domain expansion towards the series’ conclusion. Megumi emerges as a promising star alongside Itadori Yuji, leaving us to anticipate his future endeavors eagerly.

13. Mei Mei

Mei Mei, the true senpai of Gojo and Geto, is a fan-favorite character and one of the strongest in the series, as evidenced by her role in the Shibuya incident. Rated as a grade 1 sorcerer, many argue she exceeds that designation. Even Gojo himself has acknowledged her strength, a testament not to be underestimated.

Living her life as a formidable Jujutsu sorcerer, she frequently teamed up with her brother, Ui Ui. Despite being born with a weak innate technique, she rose to become one of the strongest. Mastering weaponry techniques with her battle axe, she displayed exceptional tactical intelligence, winning numerous battles. Her ease in previous battles in Shibuya was evident, marking this recent threat as a significant challenge. Consequently, she stands out as one of the most formidable characters in JJK.

12. Aoi Todo

Aoi Todo’s initial impression in JJK wasn’t the best. However, fans grew to adore his character and bond with Yuji, making him Yuji’s best friend. In the Jujutsu world, Todo currently holds the title of Grade 1 sorcerer. Despite lacking a sorcerer background, Todo emerged as one of the most formidable sorcerers. During Geto’s assault in Kyoto, he single-handedly battled five Grade 1 spirits and one Special Grade cursed spirit.

Todo dominates battles by melding martial arts with cursed energy techniques, granting him supreme power. With unmatched physical prowess, Aoi Todo excels in hand-to-hand combat, characterized by irrational speed. Noteworthy is Boogie Woogie, an attack he frequently employs. Through a mere clap, Todo can alter the positions of all cursed energy-emitting objects within his reach, utilizing the Boogie Woogie technique.

He knows how to utilize cursed energy and can use Black Flash. Despite his limited role in the Shibuya Incident arc, his cameo was impactful. Todo was a game-changer during his fight with Mahito. Todo’s physical prowess and abilities make him one of the strongest characters in Jujutsu Kaisen.

11. Choso

Choso made only a brief appearance during the Season 1 finale of Jujutsu Kaisen. He is the elder brother of the death-womb siblings Eso and Kechizu. We predicted Choso would be an important character in the JJK universe, and we were right.

Choso, a special-grade cursed spirit, has honed his skills for over 150 years, mastering the Blood Manipulation technique. Initially an antagonist, he nearly defeated Yuji until a sudden memory triggered a change of heart. Understanding his true history and relationship with Yuji, he switched sides, ultimately facing off against Kenjaku and Uraume. Choso’s formidable powers will persist in the upcoming season.

10. Kento Nanami

Following Gojo Satoru, Nanami Kento stands out as a premier sensei at Jujutsu High. He mentors Itadori Yuji and holds the esteemed rank of Grade 1 sorcerer. Nanami, a master tactician, employs his 7:3 ratio method to pinpoint an opponent’s vulnerability, swiftly exploiting it with his blade. Proficient in both swordplay and hand-to-hand combat, Nanami epitomizes the ideal Grade 1 sorcerer.

In his clash with Mahito, Nanami showcased the potency of his ratio method and cursed tool. Despite facing Mahito’s superior cursed technique, Nanami adeptly countered with tactical prowess, effectively defending against transfiguration. This prowess persisted into the Shibuya arc, revealing a ruthless side of his character.

9. Jogo

JJK fans remember Jogo’s defeat by Gojo Satoru in season 1 and again in season 2. However, Jogo possesses greater power than displayed. He ranks among the special-grade cursed spirits featured in the anime. In a conversation with Geto, it’s revealed that Jogo’s power equals 8 or 9 fingers of Sukuna, a significant level. Unfortunately, he fell victim to two of history’s mightiest sorcerers, who easily overpowered him.

Jogo should be recognized as more than just a humorous adversary. He possesses a vast reservoir of cursed energies and can summon ember insects with a potent stinger capable of exploding like bombs. His domain expansion, “Coffin of the Iron Mountain,” remains an impressive technique that should not be underestimated. Despite his formidable power and potential, Jogo ultimately succumbed to Sukuna and perished at his hands. Nonetheless, he stands out as one of the most formidable cursed spirits depicted in the anime.

8. Mahito

Mahito, a special-grade cursed spirit, wields immense strength and a powerful innate technique. He is noted for his cleverness among other cursed spirits, as demonstrated in conflicts with Yuji and Nanami. Throughout the first season, Mahito evolves as an antagonist, showcasing remarkable reflexes, strength, and intelligence.

Mahito’s “Idle Transfiguration” cursed technique alters a person’s soul with lethal effect. He killed countless people, including Nobara and Nanami during the Shibuya arc, and successfully fought against formidable opponents like Nobara, Nanami, Yuji, and Todo. He proved to be the MVP for the antagonist side of this arc, capable of healing himself during combat and disfiguring his victims’ bodies. Despite being a pawn manipulated by Kenjaku, Mahito emerged as one of the strongest characters in JJK history.

7. Geto Suguru

Disdaining those who abstain from curses, Geto Suguru embraced the path of evil, solidifying his reputation as the most notorious curse user. While absent from season 1 of the anime, his prowess was revealed in the JJK 0 movie and season 2. His adeptness at manipulating cursed spirits amplifies his terror, cementing his status alongside Gojo as the strongest sorcerer duo.

He controls all cursed spirits he devours, converting them into orbs with his manipulation technique. For instance, in the climax fight with Yuta, he unites 4,000 cursed spirits into one and assaults Yuta with it. Consequently, Geto is firmly positioned as the seventh-strongest character, emerging as the most formidable adversary to sorcerers in Jujutsu Kaisen. You can discover Geto’s final interaction with Gojo and his words to him in the linked article to grasp his true character.

6. Toji Fushiguro

Toji Fushiguro, despite his brief screentime, showcased remarkable strength. His non-sorcerer status outshone sorcerers, leveraging his superhuman physique and heightened senses from the Heavenly Restriction. Toji’s lack of cursed energy became an advantage, propelling him to dominance as the “Sorcerer Killer.”

If you’ve caught Season 2 of the anime, you know Toji defeated Gojo and Geto consecutively. Once hailed as the strongest sorcerer duo, they proved powerless against him. Toji, possessing genius intellect and formidable powers, aligned himself with the antagonists. However, Gojo’s evolution into a superior sorcerer, overcoming Toji’s exploited flaw, led to Toji’s downfall. Undoubtedly, Toji ranks among Jujutsu Kaisen’s mightiest characters.

5. Yuki Tsukumo

Yuki Tsukumo, one of four special-grade jujutsu sorcerers in the series, is a prodigy akin to Okkotsu Yuta and Shinju Hakari. Her talents, powers, and skills were exceptional from the start. After Gojo’s sealing, she single-handedly rescued other jujutsu sorcerers from Kenjaku’s grasp at the end of the Shibuya arc. Fans eagerly anticipated her powers since her season 1 cameo, and now witnessed her formidable strength, which will undoubtedly persist into the next season.

Yuki possesses the innate technique Star Rage, capable of crushing special-grade spirits. Her expertise extends to hand-to-hand combat, fueled by immense cursed energy, and she excels in Jujutsu intellect. These multifaceted skills establish her as one of the strongest sorcerers in JJK. Let’s anticipate her future in the upcoming arc.

4. Kenjaku (Pseudo-Geto)

With innate technique, he gains the cheat code to live long and retains the cursed techniques and powers of stolen bodies, making him one of the most powerful characters. Excluding his powers, he orchestrates chaos throughout the eras of Jujutsu Kaisen.

For example, in the current generation, he manipulates cursed sports to fulfill his plans and seals Gojo Satoru. He succeeds in everything he attempts with brilliant plans. Will he continue to do so to attain his true goal? We will see in upcoming seasons.

3. Yuta Okkotsu

Okkotsu Yuta, teased in the anime, gained popularity with the release of the JJK 0 movie last year. Discovering his untapped talent, Yuta became one of the four special-grade Jujutsu sorcerers, akin to Gojo. He’s a special-grade cursed person, cursed by Rika Orimoto, his late childhood friend, whom he later cursed himself. Yuta hails from a renowned Jujutsu clan, linked to “Michizane Sugawara,” one of the most legendary Jujutsu sorcerers.

Yuta wields special powers in Jujutsu Kaisen, becoming indestructible when he joins forces with Rika. He possesses strong abilities such as infinite cursed energy reserves and the capacity to replicate cursed techniques, regardless of their exclusivity.

Okkotsu can also cure others using the reverse cursed technique, one of the most challenging skills to master. Gojo predicts Yuta’s potential to surpass him one day, although Kenjaku disputes this notion. Absent from the Shibuya arc, Yuta is slated for a significant role in the upcoming storyline, cementing his status as the anime’s third-strongest character and on this list due to his exceptional potential.

2. Ryomen Sukuna

ChatGPT!ChatGPTRyomen Sukuna, known as the King of Curses, earned his title with undeniable prowess. During the golden age of Jujutsu, all challengers faced defeat or death against him. Sukuna’s cursed power was divided into twenty fingers, leaving behind cursed items imbued with a portion of his strength. Itadori Yuji, having ingested up to 15 fingers, has markedly increased in power, especially evident in the Shibuya arc.

Sukuna possesses unique skills, including the ability to regenerate limbs and even his heart using reverse cursed techniques. Throughout the anime, he demonstrated mastery in summoning special-grade cursed spirits and unleashing deadly domain expansions.

Now in JJK’s second season, we witnessed the King of Curses at his peak, obliterating Jogo, a special-grade cursed spirit.

Sukuna also claimed numerous lives, marking a substantial victory in this arc. How much stronger will the King of Curses become?

1. Gojo Satoru

Prior to delving into this article, you likely already recognized the individual occupying the top spot on this list, and your intuition is indeed correct. Gojo Satoru reigns supreme among all characters in the Jujutsu Kaisen anime. He swiftly displayed his formidable abilities upon his introduction, asserting, “It’ll be fine. I’m the strongest there is, after all.” Hailing from the esteemed Gojo clan, he commands the “Limitless” cursed technique along with the formidable Six Eyes, widely acclaimed as the pinnacle of power within the Jujutsu World.

Perpetually adorned with a blindfold, the enigma surrounding Gojo’s ocular concealment can be explored here. Presently acknowledged as one of the four special-grade sorcerers, he stands unrivaled as the paramount figure in the JJK anime.

Gojo wields numerous powers and techniques. His infinite cursed technique erects an imperceptible barrier, granting him sole control over what touches him. This advantage proves invaluable in combat, rendering opponents unable to make contact and leaving them feeling powerless. Additionally, Gojo showcases his Blue and Red cursed techniques, alongside the formidable Purple Hollow. With his vast cursed energy reserves, he can employ his domain expansion skill multiple times in a single day.

During the Shibuya arc, Gojo showcased his prowess by battling four special-grade cursed spirits and numerous others simultaneously. However, he fell victim to Pseudo-Geto’s trap, caught off-guard by the unexpected return of his late best friend. Despite this setback, Gojo managed remarkable feats, swiftly dispatching Hanami, obliterating Jogo, and mercilessly exterminating cursed spirits at Shibuya station.

Jogo’s acknowledgment came in the form of an iconic line: “Gojo Satoru, what is there that you are not capable of.” This statement underscores Gojo’s unmatched abilities, elevating him above his peers in the Jujutsu Kaisen anime.
