Created by Gege Akutami, Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most popular manga of the moment. But who are the most powerful characters?
the Shōnen Jump Magazine has been able, in recent years, to offer us series all more impressive than the other. Between My Hero AcademiaThe classic One Piece or, more recently, the very popular chain saw man, the preprint magazine offers many particularly interesting series. Among the biggest commercial successes of the latest series launched by the magazine, there is one whose animated season 2 is eagerly awaited by fans: Jujutsu Kaisen. Full of ultra badass characters, the story is that of Yuji Itadori, a teenager, almost like the others, who finds himself, somewhat by chance, under threat of execution. Yuji is indeed the receptacle of the most powerful master of plagues ever known, the so-called Sukuna.
That’s if we want to make it short. But beyond the threat of his execution, Yuji is also the target of many plagues, including Kenjaku, who dream of overthrowing the established order and thus taking over the world as we know it.. To face his various adversaries, Yuji is not alone. He is indeed accompanied by other exorcists, some professionals, others still students, and all more tough than the others. And the further we go in the story, the more powerful characters appear. So we wondered which characters were currently the most powerful. Here is our TOP 5 of the most powerful Jujutsu Kaisen characters and that we don’t wish you never to face!
5- Maki Zenin, the rough diamond not to be underestimated!
In the first volumes of Jujutsu KaisenMaki is introduced as the black sheep of the Zenin clan. Indeed, the young woman is totally unable to visually perceive occult energy and must therefore use an accessory, in this case her glasses, to overcome this “small” problem. She is nevertheless a skilled fighter capable of standing up to almost anyone in hand-to-hand combat. It is only very recently that Maki has unblocked its true potential.
Indeed, in the current arc, Maki watched helplessly as her twin sister Mai died. Although in the first chapters they were presented as rivals, Mai instead sought to do everything to protect Maki from the wrath of the Zenin clan. After he passed away, Maki simply eradicated their clan and found himself facing Naoya, their cousin who had become a plague. It is during this confrontation, and following the intervention of another character, that Maki will unlock her power and thus surprise everyone.. An otherwise bewildering fight that would have silenced Clan Zenin if the members had been still alive. Maki is certainly one of the most versatile characters, but also the most powerful at the moment in Jujutsu Kaisen. It remains to be seen if she will continue to gain power or if an adversary will send her to join her sister.
4- Suguru Geto, aka Kenjaku’s receptacle
In volume 0 of Jujutsu Kaisen, Suguru Geto already reveals an extremely powerful power. A power that will also allow him to beat Maki, Panda and Toge quite easily who have come to protect Yuta. Faced with the damage suffered by his new friends, it is also the young Yuta who will make the decision to ask Rika for help in order to beat Suguru. In order to ensure the success of the operation, Yuta will also be ready to offer his life.
Since these events, Suguru Geto, who one might have thought dead, has not disappeared from history. Quite the contrary. He returned as Kenjaku, a millennial exorcist who keeps changing vessels and whose ultimate goal is to evolve humanity using dark energy. Ever since Kenjaku took over Suguru Geto’s body, he hasn’t really shown what he’s capable of.. Nevertheless, when we analyze his doings and gestures, but also the ease with which he managed to trap Gojo Satoru, it seems obvious to us that Kenjaku is a character to be wary of. His latest show of force came in the face of the US government as he tried to offer them a deal. In the final chapter, released on October 30, Kenjaku comes face-to-face with Choso, which should make for a pretty out-of-this-world fight.
3- Rika & Yuta, an inseparable duo
Of course, we could have chosen to integrate them separately. Nevertheless, in our opinion, Rika & Yuta are simply inseparable from each other. And for good reason, if you have read volume 0 or seen the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 produced by the studio MAPPA, you certainly know that the feelings that bind them to each other are indestructible. Moreover, the two complement each other perfectly to the point of functioning as one and the same being. Separating them would therefore make no sense.
But if you know the story, you also know that things weren’t easy, especially for Yuta. Indeed, although still a child, the young boy witnesses the sudden death of his friend and then unlocks exceptional exorcist skills. His gifts are so powerful that they will allow him, unconsciously, to curse Rika and make her the queen of the plagues that we know today. It is following yet another violent event that Yuta will find himself immersed in the world of exorcists and will become aware of the talents that inhabit him. While he is still a simple beginner, he is, as soon as he arrives at the Tokyo school, classified as a class S exorcist. A very high level which lets us think that he still has a lot of things for us to show.
2- Sukuna, the king of plagues
Whether in the manga or in the anime, we ultimately know very little about Sukuna, the king of plagues. Nevertheless, the little he deigned to show us proves to us that, even though he is largely diminished, he has quite spectacular power. Remember in the early chapters. He, without any difficulty, took control of Yuji’s body to rip out his heart without any qualms.
Also, in the later chapters, Megumi and Yuji finally found the player dubbed Angel. The latter, who is a plague in a human vessel, seeks to kill a player of the mortal hunt called the fallen angel. A player who is none other than…Sukuna. Of course, it is still unknown why the angel wishes Sukuna dead, but we suspect that it is to avoid his return among the plagues. Indeed, if Sukuna were to regain all of her power, we don’t give a lot of humans. Besides, if you remember, Sukuna made a deal with Yuji whose terms are still unknown. It would be interesting to know what Yuji will give to Sukuna in exchange for returning to the living.
1- Gojo Satoru, the most feared exorcist
From the beginning of the history of Jujutsu Kaisen, Gojo is presented as the most powerful exorcist. A member of one of the three most powerful clans in the world of exorcism, he is above all the first holder of the Power of Infinity and the Sixth Eye in 400 years. Two complementary skills that allow him to take down opponents who get in his way quite easily. In the anime, each of his fights is a real feast for the eyes, but makes us shudder with terror as his power is beyond comprehension.
For the moment, it seems that we have only flown over the talents of this dear Gojo, still a prisoner of the Edge of Torment since the events of Shibuya. Despite his nonchalant and immature side, Gojo seems to have a resentful side and should not hesitate to use all his power in order to thwart Kenjaku. It remains to be seen whether his students will be able to free him in time.
