Top 10-4 ranking of the strength and ability of enemy characters in Jujutsu Kaisen

10th place: Dagon

In the ranking of the strength and abilities of enemy characters in Jujutsu Kaisen, the character who ranked 10th is Dagon. Dagon is a special grade curse born from human fear of the sea, and its power is sourced from water. This allows Dagon to generate large amounts of water and manipulate water-based techniques. It masters the inexhaustible aquatic life summoning technique called “Shiruruyuugun.”

Furthermore, within the “Touunheisen” territory, when using “Shiruruyuugun,” it can unleash attacks that are nearly impossible to dodge or defend against. Dagon displayed its strength by pushing Zen’in Naobito, Fushiguro Toji, Nanami Kento, and Zen’in Maiko to their limits but was ultimately killed by Fushiguro Jin.

9th place: Hanami

In the ranking of the strength and abilities of enemy characters in Jujutsu Kaisen, the character who ranked 9th is Hanami. Hanami is a special grade curse born from human fear of forests, and its power is sourced from forests. Its muscular and incredibly tough body is impervious to conventional sorcery and cursed tools.

Additionally, Hanami can neutralize opponent’s techniques using its “Muscle Sensory Manipulation” technique and activate “Kekka” within Daito Kaigenkai, rendering opponents powerless. It overwhelmed Gojo Satoru, Fushiguro Megumi, Kamo Noritoshi, and Zen’in Maiko. Hanami’s durability allowed it to withstand attacks from Itadori Yuji and Fushiguro Aoi, making it a formidable opponent. However, it was killed by Gojo Satoru.

8th Place: Choso

In the ranking of the strength and abilities of enemy characters in Jujutsu Kaisen, the character ranked 8th is Choso. Choso wields Red Blood Manipulation, a technique that allows him to freely control blood. Moreover, Choso’s blood is highly toxic to other living things, so being attacked by Red Blood Manipulation renders normal people unable to fight. Furthermore, by converting cursed energy into blood, he will not bleed out as long as his cursed energy does not run out.

However, he cannot manipulate blood freely when it is mixed with water, which is a weakness. Despite the weakness, he has demonstrated his strength by pushing Yuji Itadori and Naoya Zenin to the brink of death, and damaging Uraume with his blood’s toxicity. Although he pushed Itadori to near death, he later came to believe Itadori was his brother during the Shibuya Incident, and began working together with Itadori and the others.

7th Place: Uraume

Ranked 7th in the ranking of enemy characters is Uraume. Uraume is Sukuna’s exclusive cook, but is also a jujutsu sorcerer with 1000 years of experience. Uraume has very high combat ability, wielding ice manifestation techniques that freeze the surroundings.

This power is formidable enough to instantly freeze and incapacitate Nanami, Choso, Panda and others. Additionally, Uraume can use reversal techniques, regenerating lost fingers instantly and other advanced techniques. There are not many combat scenes, but as one of the few who can use reversal techniques, and with many of Uraume’s abilities still unclear, they are ranked 7th.

6th Place: Mahito

Ranked 6th is Mahito. As a special grade cursed spirit born from humans’ fear of the earth, his source is the earth itself. He wields techniques to produce volcanic craters and eruptions from walls and ground, and to shoot flames from his fists. Additionally, he can use Domain Expansion: Self Embodiment of Perfection, which incinerates anyone inside instantly.

This domain is powerful enough to instantly kill Nanami, and grievously injure Maki and Kento. However, in later fights he could not match Gojo’s strength, and was left in critical condition. Although saved by Hanami, he died fighting Sukuna during the Shibuya Incident.

5th Place: Geto

Ranked 5th is Geto. Originally one of Japan’s four special grade jujutsu sorcerers, he became a special grade cursed user after massacring civilians. He wields Cursed Spirit Manipulation to take control of curses. Moreover, he can use grade 1 curses unlimitedly, making him extremely strong. He fought equally with special grade Uzumaki, and heavily injured Maki, Toge and Panda. Although he demonstrated his strength fighting Uzumaki, he was ultimately dealt a fatal blow by Gojo.

4th Place: Mahito

Ranked 4th is Mahito. As a special grade cursed spirit born from humans’ fear of other humans, his source is humans themselves. He wields Idle Transfiguration which allows him to touch souls and alter their form to freely manipulate the physical body.

Those whose souls are altered by Mahito can never revert back, dying from shock. Mahito has a stock of humans whose souls he has touched and manipulates. His Domain Expansion, Coffin of the Iron Mountain, can also interfere with the souls of those inside.

Mahito killed Kento, nearly killed Nobara, and fought on par with Yuji and Megumi. However, he is presumed dead after being taken over by Geto during the Shibuya Incident.

Top 3 Enemy Characters in Jujutsu Kaisen Ranked by Strength and Abilities

3rd Place: Toji Fushiguro

Ranked 3rd in the ranking of enemy character strength and abilities in Jujutsu Kaisen is Toji Fushiguro. Although from the jujutsu Zenin family, Toji has no cursed energy. However, he has a rare Heavenly Restriction granting superhuman physical abilities and senses. Without cursed energy, he cannot exorcise curses without tools.

However, his Heavenly Restriction of Physically Gifted allows him to sense and resist curses. He also cannot be trapped in Domain Expansions. Utilizing his physical abilities fully, he fights with various jujutsu tools. Toji has nearly killed Geto and Gojo.

As the only one who nearly killed teen Gojo, his immense strength is clear. He also instantly left grade 2 sorcerer Tsumiki in critical condition, and killed Dagon instantly, demonstrating his power. Although finally killed by Gojo, he is an incredibly strong enemy character.

2nd Place: Kenjaku

Ranked 2nd in the ranking is Kenjaku, said to be the root of all misfortune, a very calculating curse user. He can take over others’ bodies, allowing him to live for over 1000 years. Using their physical abilities and techniques, he has accumulated immense strength taking over countless bodies, currently Geto.

He can also use reversal techniques to regenerate lost limbs. His Domain Expansion: Womb Realm also ranks him at 2nd.

1st Place: Sukuna

Ranked 1st is Sukuna, a cursed spirit from the Heian era with 20 fingers remaining as special grade cursed objects. Each contains massive cursed energy, unleashed when Yuji swallowed one, manifesting Sukuna’s domain in Yuji’s mind.

Normally dormant, taking over Yuji’s body reveals his markings as he revives as Sukuna. Called the “King of Curses”, he is the strongest in Jujutsu Kaisen. His reversal techniques can heal others, and he wields Domain Expansion: Malevolent Shrine.

While his techniques are unclear, his combat ability is immense, unleashing devastating slashes and controlling fire. If all 20 fingers are reunited, his power may exceed his current level.

Objectives of Jujutsu Kaisen Villains

Cursed Spirits’ Objectives

The main objective of cursed spirits in Jujutsu Kaisen is to create a world only for cursed spirits. They are born from humans’ negative emotions of fear.

Therefore, as long as humans have negative emotions, cursed spirits will continue to exist. However, they are exorcised by jujutsu sorcerers due to being born from humans’ negativity. Thus, to create a world just for themselves, they sealed away Gojo who interfered with their goal.

Geto’s Objectives

Let’s also look deeper into the objectives of Geto, who leads the cursed spirits. Geto’s goal is to “find new possibilities in humans and create a new world.” When Geto was enrolled at the Tokyo Jujutsu High School, he lost many important comrades during missions. These events made him develop a hatred for non-sorcerers. He then set the goal of “creating a world only for jujutsu sorcerers.”

To achieve this goal, Geto massacred civilians and became a curse user. Originally, Geto and the cursed spirits aimed to “create a world only for cursed spirits.” However, now Geto looks down on both cursed spirits and sorcerers. His current goal is to “create a new world where the power of jujutsu alone is justice.”
