Jujutsu Kaisen: Yuki Tsukumo’s Star Rage, Explained
Yuki’s status as a Special Grade Sorcerer stems from her Innate Technique, which allows her to assign imaginary mass to herself and her shikigami.
On this note, the techniques used by the main cast of Jujutsu Kaisen are as emphatic as they are varied, with each individual Cursed Technique and its applications offering an entirely different set of merits or demerits when compared to others. Among these abilities, some boast such devastating destructive power that they can overpower opponents without letting them put up any resistance, permitting their users to conclude fights dramatically. Hence, here is a ranking of the best finishing moves in Jujutsu Kaisen.
8 Chimera Shadow Garden – Megumi Fushiguro
Used To Defeat The Finger Bearer In The Death Painting Arc
- Manga Chapter: 58
- Anime Episode: 23
Although it may have been an incomplete version of his Domain Expansion with the Ten Shadows Technique he inherited, Megumi Fushiguro’s choice to push past his limits yielded a momentous conclusion to his battle against the Finger Bearer. Pinned against the wall by a seemingly stronger Cursed Spirit, Megumi was forced to imagine a future version of himself that could exploit his Cursed Technique to its fullest, and with this vision, he activated a crude form of his Domain Expansion.
As a result, he was able to freely summon shikigami from the shadows surrounding him, and also create clones of himself from the shadows to misdirect his opponent. Eventually, Megumi managed to take his adversary by surprise and stab the Cursed Spirit in the back with Divine Dog: Totality, ending the fight.
7 Maximum: Uzumaki – Kenjaku / Suguru Geto
Its Miniature Form Ended The Fight Against Yuki Tsukumo
- Manga Chapter: 207
- Anime Episode: N/A
The most destructive application of Suguru Geto’s Cursed Spirit Manipulation Technique, Maximum: Uzumaki combines multiple absorbed Cursed Spirits into a single sphere of condensed cursed energy. When released, the ensuing blast can destroy anything it comes into contact with, and the only real way to counter it is by applying Cursed Energy of equal or greater force.
Jujutsu Kaisen: How Strong is Kenjaku?
The ancient sorcerer Kenjaku has been shown to be the mastermind working behind the scenes. Just how strong of an enemy is he?
While its first application against Yuta Okkotsu failed and contributed to Suguru Geto’s eventual death, Kenjaku was later able to reapply miniature versions of the technique against Yuki Tsukumo to catch her by surprise and defeat her.
6 Flame Technique – Ryomen Sukuna
Overwhelmed Jogo’s Firepower And Exorcised Mahoraga
- Manga Chapter: 115
- Anime Episode: 40
While the true mechanics behind this technique have not yet been revealed, it has been used to conclude fights against two extremely powerful entities in Jujutsu Kaisen. By chanting “Open,” Sukuna gains the ability to manipulate flames, which were first used to burn through the fire powers of the Special Grade Cursed Spirit Jogo during the Shibuya Incident.
Subsequently, it was used against Eight-Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga, after the shikigami had adapted to Sukuna’s Domain Expansion, allowing him to surprise it with an attack it did not know of.
5 Cursed Energy Blast – Yuta Okkotsu And Rika Orimoto
Destroyed Suguru Geto’s Maximum: Uzumaki In A Final Clash
- Manga Chapter: 0-4 (Jujutsu Kaisen 0)
- Anime Episode: Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie
Through a Binding Vow with which he pledged his entire life to her, Yuta Okkotsu was able to transcend the limits of his Cursed Energy to match Suguru Geto’s Maximum: Uzumaki Technique during the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons.
After fully manifesting the Special Grade Cursed Spirit of Rika Orimoto, Yuta chose to give up his own life and join her in death for all eternity. This act opened up Rika’s eye and allowed the Cursed Spirit to take on an even more powerful form, where she manifested a beam of “Pure Love,” that ultimately defeated Geto’s most powerful attack.
4 Malevolent Shrine – Ryomen Sukuna
Sliced The Finger Bearer To Shreds Instantly
- Manga Chapter: 8
- Anime Episode: 4
Sukuna’s Domain Expansion permits him to use his Innate Techniques “Cleave” and “Dismantle” continuously upon anything within effective range. The Domain Expansion also does not have an enclosed barrier, which makes the prospect of destroying it by normal means virtually impossible, and the only way to dispel it is by severely injuring Sukuna himself.
Jujutsu Kaisen: Gojo’s Limitless, Explained
Bringing the concept of “Infinity” into reality, the Limitless is an inherited technique that is at the core of why Satoru Gojo is so powerful.
Moreover, Sukuna can customize aspects of Malevolent Shrine with a Binding Vow, or contract its range within a maximum radius of 200 meters. First used to completely wipe out the Finger Bearer in the Eishu Juvenile Detention Center, Sukuna later applied it in his battle against Mahoraga in Shibuya, in the build-up to his use of his Flame Technique.
3 Unlimited Void – Satoru Gojo
Completely Incapacitated Jogo In Their First Fight
- Manga Chapter: 15
- Anime Episode: 7
A truly formidable technique that can destroy a target’s mental faculties in mere moments, Unlimited Void is the Domain Expansion of the Limitless and one of Satoru Gojo’s most powerful abilities. In essence, the technique brings opponents within the Limitless itself, subjecting them to overwhelming amounts of raw information to render them unable to move or respond to any external stimuli.
When first used by Gojo, this ability dominated Jogo’s own Domain Expansion and left him in a near-catatonic state. The technique was also later used multiple times in Gojo’s battle against Sukuna, albeit not as a move to conclude their fight.
2 Dismantle – Ryomen Sukuna
The Slash That Struck Down Satoru Gojo In Shinjuku
- Manga Chapter: 236
- Anime Episode: N/A
Even though several versions of Sukuna’s long-range slash attack “Dismantle” have been executed throughout the series, the attack in question here is the “slash that cut the world” utilized during his climactic showdown with Satoru Gojo in Shinjuku. The base form of the technique slices through targets such as inanimate objects, Cursed Spirits, and Jujutsu Sorcerers.
However, the version used by Sukuna to defeat Gojo was based on Mahoraga’s adaptation to the Limitless Cursed Technique, altering the target of the slash from his opponent to the world itself, effectively making the Limitless’ intangibility useless.
1 Hollow Purple – Satoru Gojo
Tore Through Toji Fushiguro’s Body In One Go
- Manga Chapter: 75
- Anime Episode: 28
By combining the Limitless’ Cursed Technique Lapse: Blue with the Cursed Technique Reversal Red, Satoru Gojo collides the amplification and reversal of Infinity to create an imaginary mass that erases everything in its path in the form of Hollow Purple. An extension technique known to only a few within the Gojo Family, Hollow Purple is a truly fearsome ability that can lay waste to the entire area around the caster if left unchecked.
Gojo was only able to execute it after unlocking the secrets of the Reversed Cursed Technique when left on the verge of death after his first fight against Toji Fushiguro during the Star Plasma Vessel Escort Mission. During their rematch, Toji was unaware of Hollow Purple’s existence and could not contend with it, as it left a gaping hole in one side of his body, effectively ending the fight.
