Curses or Cursed spirits are the main antagonists of the JJK universe and are insanely strong and have been responsible for the deaths of multiple members of the main cast. Even the weaker ones are as strong as numerous cursed wielders but the strongest are in a league of their own.
Cursed Spirits are formed due to the negative energy or cursed energy that originates from humans’ negative emotions and thoughts. These fears materialize and form a physical temporal body with its mind otherwise known as curses.
List of Most Powerful Curses in Jujutsu Kaisen
This list will be based on the raw strength of the cursed spirit, their cursed techniques, the fights we witnessed in the anime and manga, and their importance to the plot as a whole. So let’s start.
10. The Finger Bearer
One of the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen, Finger Bearer was found in the prison facility where Yuji, Nobara, and Fushiguro were sent to check upon the curse responsible for the deaths of many criminals. However, this curse proved to be very strong.
He had ingested a finger of Sukuna which made him unimaginably strong and even Yuji and Fushiguro couldn’t defeat him with their combined force and it even resulted in the apparent death of Yuji. No wonder it was the first special-grade curse shown in the anime.
A special-grade curse that manifested itself from Mankind’s combined fear of cockroaches, it also takes the form of a man-eating cockroach man who can even use its cursed energy to make a special sword known as the “Festering Life Sword” which he uses.
He can also summon an army of cockroaches which he uses to fight his enemies. He was a part of Kenjaku’s culling game and was defeated by Yuta Okkotsu narrowly simply cause of his reversed cursed energy. Thus he is one of the most potent curses in Jujutsu Kaisen.
8. Rainbow Dragon
A special grade cursed spirit that was used by Geto Suguru back when he was still a student at Jujutsu High. This dragon is insanely strong and has a skin of diamond-like scales and is near impenetrable skin and can overpower others due to its immense size.
This spirit was used by Geto to fight against Toji Fushiguro and is still defeated by his cause of Toji’s immense physical strength and because of his complete absence of cursed energy. Because of this, it is one of the most potent curses in Jujutsu Kaisen.
The eldest of the Nine Death Womb Paintings, Choso was an experiment by Noritoshi Kamo who in turn was controlled by Kenjaku. He is extremely strong and can even use the Blood manipulation technique that is a trademark of the Kamo Clan. He has been around for more than 150 years.
He is extremely protective of his younger brothers and considers Yuji as one and has helped him in his fight against Kenjaku and Sukuna. He has mastered Blood manipulation to the level where he has been able to be graded a special grade. He is one of the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen.
While we have not seen his mature form in the anime in the manga we have seen, just how strong he can be. Even in his cursed womb form, in which Dagon looks like an octopus his domain expansion was capable of creating an entire beach where Geto and Mahito can be seen.
His power seems to be focused on sea creatures and he formed from humanity’s collective fear of water-based disasters and it took the combined power of Maki, Fushiguro, Naobito, and Nanami to finally defeat it. For this, it is one of the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen.
Among Mahito’s group of Special-grade curses is Hanami. He is extremely strong and is born out of mankind’s fear of land-based disaster. He has an intense hatred for humanity and wants to wipe them cause of their mistreatment of nature.
He uses plant-based moves like branches and vines and even refrains from using his left arm to test the true limits of strength. he fought both Yuji and Aoi singlehandedly and even managed to defeat them both. He is one of the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen.
One of Mahito’s allies, Jogo is also a special-grade curse who was born from Mankind’s collective fear of the subconscious. He uses volcanic-type attacks and even his head is shaped like a Volcano with steam blowing from it. He has the appearance of an old man.
He believes that curses are real humans and wants to get rid of humans. he believes humans are full of lies and curses are pure. He is very strong-headed and also extremely strong. He fought with Gojo and survived but was eventually killed by Sukuna. One of the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen.
Part of Pseudo-Geto’s group of curses, he is a special grade and has been responsible for the deaths of so many characters. He has been tormenting Yuji for a long time. He has a unique power that can change the shape of the soul of anyone he touches.
Anyone who doesn’t have cursed energy has no chance. He can also use one of the strongest domain expansions and has killed Nobara, Nanami, and many others. he can also change the shape of his body by changing his soul. One of the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen.
2. Rika Orimoto
Known as the Queen of curses, Rika Orimoto is perhaps the second on the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen and is so immensely strong that the whole jujutsu world was left scared in her wake. She was originally a human and Yuta’s childhood friend but turned into a curse after her death.
Her deep bond with Yuta made her still regain some portion of her memories but otherwise her every self was distorted turning her into a horrendous curse. Though she has helped humanity many times, she is still incredibly powerful and one of the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen.
1. Ryomen Sukuna
The undisputed king of curses and the strongest cursed spirit in existence and history, Ryomen Sukuna is also what gave Itadori his power and cursed energy. Existing in his full form long ago, he was finally defeated by the Jujutsu organization and was sealed.
Everyone thought that his reign of terror had ended but that was not the case as once Yuji consumed one of his fingers and eventually other curses and Yuji himself consumed other fingers, his presence became so strong it couldn’t be ignored,
In the most recent chapters, we can see how he can fight toe to toe with none other than Gojo Satoru who is inarguably the strongest sorcerer in existence which is only a testament to his massive strength.
So this was our list of the most powerful curses in Jujutsu Kaisen and in this, we have ranked the most powerful and scariest curses who have immense power and strike fear in the hearts of the Jujutsu association and the fans alike.
This list was made possible because of prolonged research and we hope you liked this list.
