Strongest Characters in Jujutsu Kaisen Ranked Based On Anime

Jujutsu Kaisen is hands down one of the best Shounen anime out there. It delivers solid comedy when required and, at the same time, makes you feel the brevity of a grave situation.

With the reported conclusion of the manga as announced by Gege Akutami (the creator of Jujutsu Kaisen).

The clash between Gojo and Sukuna was much anticipated, with fans buzzing and teeming excitedly; however, fans were enraged to see Gojo defeated and possibly dead at the hands of Sukuna.

For now, it seems that the King of Curses has taken the top spot on our list, with Gojo demoted to the second place.

I’m still recovering from that shock; it’s like killing Levi from Attack on Titan. The whole fandom would be a tumultuous uproar. Hopefully, the blue-eyed man we love makes a comeback stronger than bleach!

Here’s a list ranking the strongest characters in JJK so far.

11. Itadori Yuji

Itadori has immense potential; he is the vessel of the King of Curses, after all, but as of now, he is only a budding sorcerer climbing up the ranks.

Itadori has great physical prowess. Even without using any cursed energy, he is able to beat world records with ease and bend a soccer goalposts with ease.

Remember the first episode? I was in awe of his brute strength.

Even our man Gojo acknowledged his potential and commended that he is at the level of Yuta Okkotsu and Kinji Hakari, students whom Satoru believes will surpass his strength.

He beat Nanami’s record of Black Flash and was even able to withstand Mahito’s curses.

Eventually, we will see Itadori grow and become much stronger as he is a proficient learner.

Though Maki, Inumaki, and Panda are more experienced, the growth rate of Itadori, along with Sukuna’s powers, is the reason why he made it on the list.

10. Aoi Todo

Aoi Todo is a Grade 1 sorcerer despite being born into a non-sorcerer family. He is exceptionally strong and is one of the strongest students, standing only next to Yuta.

He is not the typical hollow-brained, cliche muscle man. Todo’s got both brains and muscles.

He has a deep understanding of Jujutsu and was able to help Yuji grasp the understanding of Jujutsu along with teaching Itadori Black Flash.

He partnered with Itadori, our favorite besto frendo duo, who were able to fight Hanami when most of the other students were totally crushed in defeat.

He is known for singlehandedly defeating five grade 1 spirits and one special grade spirit. Let that sink in.

9. Kento Nanami

Kento Nanami is a Grade 1 sorcerer who is well-trusted by Gojo. He was the underclassman of Gojo and Geto, who left to work as a salaryman but returned later on.

Nanami is an exceptional Jujutsu Sorcerer, even acknowledged by his opponent Mahito, a Special Grade Cursed Spirit.

Nanami is an astute character with an innate technique, his 7:3 ratio method, which divides his targets with ten lines, exposing an enemy’s weak point and slashing it with his iconic blunt blade.

His signature move is Overtime; it kinda suits his appearance, don’t you think?

This ability limits the amount of cursed energy he can use while working officially. Once he crosses this time, his energy rises exponentially.

Before Itadori broke his record, Nanami held the record for most Black Flashes.

8. Hanami

Hanami is a special-grade curse that is manifested from the fear of Land-based natural disasters. His desire to kill stems from the mistreatment of nature by Humans. Kinda sounds noble when you put it this way.

Hanami is on par with Jogo in strength and cursed energy. He has the ability to manifest cursed plants into reality. He can also launch buds that feed on cursed energy and weaken the target.

Also, he can move through plants and erase his presence completely, making it hard to track him down. He is extremely durable as he can regenerate over and over again.

Even Gojo commended Hanami’s ability, as he was able to sense and evade the Six Eyes’ strong perception and is bound to surpass Jogo.

7. Mahito

Mahito is one of the most unpleasant characters we encounter in Jujutsu Kaisen, but we can not deny that he is a very strong curse.

Mahito is a special grade curse that has manifested from humanity’s hatred. He has rapidly developed in a short period and is said to possess as much strength as Sukuna’s three fingers.

Mahito depicted his strength and tactics in the two-on-one battle with Nanami and Yuji and would have most likely defeated both of them had it not been for Sukuna’s intervention.

He was even able to conjure his Domain Expansion when his life was dangling by a thread.

His ability, Idle Transfiguration, helps to change the shape of the souls he touches.

His Domain expansion allows him to be in contact with all the souls that fall within the environment, enabling him to transfigure them at will, which is quite a gruesome scene.

6. Geto Suguru

We do not see much of Geto Suguru in season1 but season 2 shed light on his and Gojo’s friendship and it was quite painful to watch.

Like Todo he was also born in a non-sorcerer family and hence, had a rocky start cause he was like the black sheep of his family and was belittled. This is why Jujutsu High felt like home for him, a safe abode.

Geto’s major strength comes from his tactical ability, and he was one of the sharpest students in Jujutsu High and used to help Gojo out.

Geto’s character was also expanded in Jujutsu Kaisen 0. He has the ability to control cursed spirits, which is a terrifying ability. He has 4,461 cursed souls under his control.

His technique, “Maximum: Uzumaki,” lets him combine a plethora of collected curses into one powerful attack. His technique is a formindable one and which why he is feared among people.

 He used this technique to unleash the power of four thousand during the climax of his battle with Yuta and Rika.

He was also one of the four special-grade sorcerers and was on par with Gojo regarding strength.

5. Toji Fushiguro

Toji Fushiguro aka the Sorcerer Killer took over the internet like a storm. He is actually Megumi’s dad, but I’m sure we are all aware of that thanks to countless edits over Toji’s appearance.

He was one of the strongest most elite fighter furing his prime and guess what? He doesnt even have an ounce of Jujutsu.

In addition, Yuki Tsukumo, a special grade sorcerer discovered that since Toji had no Jujutsu, he was body had been trained so well he could sense curses like one of the 5 senses.

He was an adept killer as he had allot of intel on sorcerers thanks to the Zenin family, no wonder he was nicknamed as the “Sorcerer Killer”

He was a deft user of weaponry to make up for his loss of Jujutsu and has super human strength, I mean he obviously looks like he is strong.

Toji effortlessly took down Geto and was able to withstand against Gojo with a mere cut on the ear as an injury. Later on he was brought down by Gojo with the awakened form of Limitless.

4. Rika Orimoto

Rika Orimoto was introduced as a character in the Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Jujutsu High prequel series. She carries the lofty title of the “Queen Of Cruses” parallel to Sukuna.

She shared a special bond with Yuta, and after her tragic death, she was turned into a vengeful spirit and desired to protect only Yuta.

You know, like Gojo said “Love manifests the most twisted curses”

She stuck around like a cursed spirit around Yuta until he attended Tokyo Jujutsu High, where he learned to unravel the curse on her spirit, setting her free to pass on to the afterlife.

Yuta Okkotsu was able to defeat Geto and overpower all the cursed spirits he threw at them with Geto’s “Maximum: Uzumaki.”

3. Okkostu Yuta

Yuta was introduced in Jujutsu Kaisen 0, the movie. He was already one of the special sorcerers without any prior experience and had immeasurable cursed energy.

Initially, Yuta’s powers were mainly attributed to Rika. However, later on, it is revealed that Rika is as strong as she is due to Yuta’s immense cursed energy and becomes the Queen of Curses due to his influence.

During the series, Yuta was mentioned multiple times, and everybody seemed to respect him. He was acknowledged by Gojo, who claimed that Yuta had the potential to be a sorcerer on his level.

It seems like Yuta developed a lot after freeing Rika and became one of the most powerful and feared Sorcerers to exist.

His immeasurable cursed energy comes from his genetic relation to Michizane Sugawara, one of the Big Three Vengeful Spirits and an ancestor to both Satoru Gojo and Yuta Okkotsu.

2. Gojo Satoru

The iconic Gojo Storu had viewers thirsting over his captivating eyes and nonchalant yet goofy personality.

Apart from his sparkling eyes, Gojo is known for his strength and abilities. He is a special-grade Jujutsu Sorcerer and is widely recognized as the strongest in the world.

Gojo was unequivocally believed to be the strongest character in Jujutsu Kaisen anime.

However, due to the recent defeat and possible death at the hands of Sukuna, our king is gonna be at the second place for now.

Lets not forget that he reigns over shamans and spirits as the first person in a hundred years to possess both rarest cursed techniques – Six Eyes and the Limitless Curse Technique.

Limitless is a technique that grants him control over space at an atomic level. Infinity is a technique that allows him to slow things down. This power does not allow any attack to reach Gojo, providing absolute defense.

Apart from his remarkable physical strength, Gojo also possesses exceptional intelligence and strategic thinking skills.

 He can scrutinize his opponents’ vulnerabilities, develop efficacious combat tactics, and adjust his strategies accordingly.

We are all hoping for his comeback, just as Dazai’s.

1. Ryomen Sukuna

Ryomen Sukuna is the strongest character in the Jujutsu Kaisen series. A 1,000 years ago, it took several sorcerers to subdue and seal him as he couldn’t be beaten. Most recently, he achieved the unimaginable by beating Gojo, solidifying Sukuna as the strongest of all time.

He was incarnated when Yuji Itadori consumed one of his fingers and

Even with a mere fraction of his power, he was able to use a special grade curse, which instilled fear even in the viewers.

Moreover, I’m still recovering from the fact that he defeated Gojo in chapter chapter 236 of Jujutsu Kaisen manga. Apologies for traumatizing you.

Sukuna’s domain expansion, Malevolent Shrine, is quite unique. It takes the form of a Buddhist shrine that enshrines a demon such as Sukuna himself.

This does not create a barrier; rather, it allows an escape route by forming a Binding Vow, which expands up to a radius of up to 200m. It’s even considered a divine technique because of the missing barrier.

He was able to scare the shit out of Mahito with just his presence and got an entire army of people to thirst over him. He wrecked Mahito the second time he touched Sukuna’s soul.
