Give us, weebs, a handsome, insanely strong and notorious
villain and the popularity of the show never goes down. Such an anime is
Jujutsu Kaisen and such a villain is Jujutsu Kaisen’s Sukuna Ryomen. Let’s talk
about our favourite new generation mass murderer alongside Eren Jaeger, Sukuna
ORIGIN AND PAST :
Many consider Sukuna to be an imaginary demon; however, he
was a human Jujutsu sorcerer. He existed over a thousand years ago, but at the
time, the people around him did not recognize him as a human. During the Heian
era, Sukuna was a natural calamity, with his name conjuring nothing but terror.
During the Golden Age of Jujutsu, sorcerers tried numerous times to defeat him,
but were ultimately defeated. He acquired the title of King of Curses as a
result of this trait, regardless of his profession as a sorcerer. Ultimately, a
group of Jujutsu sorcerers came together to defeat Sukuna, and the spirit he
had become was sealed inside his 20 fingers in order to become cursed objects
after his death. No matter how hard the shamans tried, they were not able to
properly dispose of Sukuna's remains since his fingers were preserved in their
own grave wax and the cursed objects that he left behind continued to instill
fear in the minds of sorcerers.
In describing Ryomen Sukuna's appearance and powers,
Akutami-sensei cited Japanese mythology as inspiration. As Sukuna's description
in the manga is similar to what is described by Japanese mythology, he had two
pairs of arms and legs on each side of his body. As mentioned in chapter 3,
Satoru describes Sukuna as having four arms and two faces, as well as a cover
for chapter 117 that was a representation of Sukuna's real form within the JJK
universe. In the anime Sukuna looks so similar with Yuji Itadori because he
uses Yuji’s body as his vessel.
At Sugisawa High School in 2018, one of his fingers was
found in an outdoor thermometer box. The school's Occult Club had inexplicably
removed the seal covering the finger and placed the finger back in the
thermometer box. The finger's tainted powers began attracting Cursed Spirits
who attacked club members as soon as the energy was released from its sealed
power. In order to protect a club member, Yuji Itadori consumes the finger
which turns him into Sukuna’s vessel.
POWERS AND ABILITIES :
In the entire series, Sukuna has been called King of the
Curses, because of his power and skill levels. In the present, even with his
power limited due to his incarnation not having eaten all his fingers, Sukuna
still remains a formidably lethal threat and Kenjaku's group saw his complete
awakening as being capable of ensuring the success of their plans. He proved
capable of effortlessly defeating Special-Grade Curses: With just two fingers,
he completely outmatched and defeated a Finger Bearer. With more fingers, he
seriously injured Mahito when angered and left the latter terrified at his
might. With 15 fingers, Sukuna easily defeated Jogo without much struggle and even
managed to ultimately Mahoraga, something no user of the Ten Shadows Technique
and even a member of the Gojo Family with the Six Eyes had done. Even Satoru
Gojo acknowledged Sukuna's strength and considered a fight between them as
being difficult even for him, while Yuji believed with Satoru sealed away, only
Yuta Okkotsu, a Special-Grade Sorcerer of comparable strength to Satoru, could
challenge and defeat him if he goes on a rampage. Sukuna possesses
overwhelmingly massive levels of Cursed Energy that makes him capable of making
continuous usage of his cursed techniques without any strain and far exceeds
any other Special-Grade Cursed Spirits. His presence upon awakening could be
felt through the entire Shibuya. Simply exerting his Cursed Energy alone could
easily overcome Mahito's efforts to use Idle Transfiguration on Yuji and even
destroy his Domain Expansion. Sukuna's Cursed Energy was considered to be close
to Satoru Gojo's own, who was regarded as the strongest Jujutsu Sorcerer with
superhuman levels of Cursed Energy, in terms of immensity while being
overwhelmingly more evil and sinister.
Domain Expansion: Malevolent Shrine:- Sukuna's Domain
Expansion is extremely potent and unique, taking the form of a Buddhist shrine
that has been disfigured to enshrine a demon such as Sukuna himself. The shrine
has horns on the roof, skulls hanging at each of the corners of the roof,
mouths coming out of each side of it, and is surrounded with bull-shaped
skulls, in that it doesn't create a separate space with a barrier, making it a
truly divine technique, as the ability to realize one's innate domain without
using a barrier is akin to an artist drawing a masterpiece on the air instead
of on a canvas. He allows an escape route from his domain to form a Binding Vow
that vastly increases the guaranteed hit's effective area with a maximum radius
of nearly 200 meters and he can narrow down the radius if desired, allowing him
to utilize Cleave and Dismantle to relentlessly attack anything in its radius.
Sukuna can set it to automatically target any inanimate objects with dismantle,
and cleave anything with cursed energy to cut them down.
Sukuna’s Innate Technique is yet unknown but he was shown to
use this technique to slash his opponents. In fact, he has fire abilities too.
One of the default Sukuna’s slashing attacks includes Dismantle.
It’s mostly used for inanimate objects. But, it can also be used against cursed
spirits. Cleave includes slashing of his opponents instantly
depending upon their physical toughness. It takes huge cursed energy to perform
this technique and is known to be very effective too. Fire Manipulation is
also one of Sukuna’s Techniques. He can manipulate fire however he likes. These
were exceeded on Jogo who’s a special-grade curse.
Being extremely skillful with immense strength in him,
Sukuna is a powerful close-quarter fighter. He’s physically fit which
leads him to fight very well in hand-to-hand combat. It is very difficult to
fight with Sukuna hand-to-hand. Despite having Immense Strength, he’s
considered to have immense speed as well! He moves at an incredible speed which
confuses his opponents. He was constantly able to defeat Jogo by confusing him.
He moves very rapidly it can easily induce dizziness in his opponents. Sukuna
even confronted Panda and Atsuya Kusakabe who are quite
MANY FINGERS DOES SUKUNA HAVE :
Sukuna has 20 fingers since he was sealed in his old form
when he had 4 arms.
X MEGUMI THEORY :
When Sukuna inherited Itadori’s body, he already started
planning for his resurrection. Megumi’s 10 shadows technique allows him to
create a shikigami. Sukuna is highly interested in this technique. Given that
Sukuna is very selfish and he is really interested in Megumi, the only
conclusion we can draw is that Sukuna wants to somehow use Megumi for his
