Jujutsu Kaisen has a lot of immensely powerful and cool characters. It is impossible to determine which is more powerful because everyone’s power is so different. So who exactly is the strongest character in the anime? Do you think it’s Gojo Saturo? Is it Ryomen Sukuna, the king of curses? We’ll find out. The following are the eight strongest Jujutsu Kaisen characters, in order. 

8. Nanami Kento 

Nanami Kento was a student at Jujutsu High before dropping out. Nanami is reputed to have a great deal of cursed energy. The techniques he uses are the Ratio Technique, Overtime Technique, and Collapse Technique. Even though he is a grade 1 Jujutsu sorcerer why is he ranked so low on this list? Although Nanami’s technique is quite impressive in itself, when he is up against someone such as Mahito, his technique is rendered useless. This is one of the reasons why Nanami is ranked so low on this list.  

7. Yuji Itadori 

The 7th position belongs to none other than Yuji Itadori, our protagonist. Yuji is Ryomen Sukuna’s vessel. Being the vessel does mean that he will eventually die in the story, but it has perks too. Some include poison resistance and even resurrection. His combat skills are unparalleled and his cursed energy is overwhelming. Throughout the anime, we saw him hold his own against Mahito and even defeat a Special Grade Curse. 

6. Aoi Todo 

The only student at Kyoto Jujutsu High School who is a Grade 1 Sorcerer is Aoi Todo. His accomplishment speaks for itself. Physically strong and extremely skilled in hand-to-hand combat, he has a lot to offer. The Boogie Woogie technique is used by Todo to change the position of anything within range with just a clap. It is simple but extremely effective in combat. 

5. Jogo 

Jogo is also a cursed spirit of high grade. While battling Gojo Saturo, he displayed a range of techniques. Flames of Disaster, Insects of Ember, and the Maximum: Meteor are among them. Additionally, we have seen Jogo’s domain expansion Coffin of the Iron Mountain. This domain expansion can burn people that enter it and you have to be an extremely powerful sorcerer like Gojo Saturo to get out of it alive.  

4. Hanami 

The next strongest character in Jujutsu Kaisen is Hanami. He is a cursed spirit. Hanami is capable of a number of other tricks. During his fight with Todo and Yuji, we were able to witness some of these such as disaster plants, roots, wooden balls, cursed buds and flower fields. The students of Jujutsu high were all overpowered by him when he battled them together. Hanami is even capable of absorbing the life from plants and turning it into cursed energy. This means, if he is in a forest or garden, he has an immense supply of cursed energy. In the anime, Gojo had to show up in order to finally stop him.  

3. Mahito 

Mahito is also a cursed spirit who is more powerful than Hanami and Jogo, but nowhere near Sukuna though. Nanami, a grade 1 jujutsu sorcerer was helpless against Mahito until Yuji showed up. Nanami and Yuji together couldn’t take him down. With his Idle Transfiguration technique, he can reshape souls. This is how he killed Junpei and we JJK fans will never forgive him for that.  

2. Ryomen Sukuna 

Next on our list of strongest characters in Jujutsu Kaisen, is the King of Curses himself. Sukuna was once a human sorcerer who went rogue. After death, he became a cursed spirit. He has left 20 of his fingers scattered all over the world. Yuji has already eaten 3 of them at the end of Season 1. Now Sukuna’s spirit lives inside Yuji. Sukuna hasn’t reached his full potential yet in the story since Yuji has eaten only 3/20 fingers which is only 15% of his full power.

1. Gojo Saturo 

Gojo Saturo seems to have taken the term looks could kill a tad bit too seriously. Our conversation isn’t about his charming nature or amazing body, but rather his six eyes. Due to the Six Eyes, Satoru can reduce his cursed energy consumption from technique activation to an infinitesimally small amount. This means that he will never run out of cursed energy during combat. His infinity literally makes him untouchable. He definitely is the strongest character in Jujutsu Kaisen.

  1. Definitely a fun list. I assume it’s based purely on season 1 of the anime so with that in mind I’d definitely agree with these. I would only switch the order of Mahito to put him under Jugo and Hanami though. I’m not convinced that he is strong enough to beat those fighter at this point in time

  2. This is an interesting list! I’ve always thought Okkotsu would be included somewhere in there. I feel like he would be stronger than Todo but not as strong as Gojo.
