If you want to know about filler episodes in Jujutsu Kaisen, then come take a look at our Jujutsu Kaisen Filler List!

STRONGEST CURSED TECHNIQUES!!

16. Tool Manipulation

16

Kicking it off with tool manipulation and obviously, it gives the user the ability to control different kinds of objects telepathically. Its known user so far is Momo Nishimiya, a 3rd year student from Kyoto Jujutsu High.

For Momo’s case, she mostly uses tool manipulation on the broomstick that she brings along with her and rides it in mid-air making her look like a witch. She can even use it as an offensive weapon by using it as a scythe that releases strong wind blades (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 135).

15. Rot Technique

15 rot

Rot Technique is a skill that allows the user to control dark blood and imbue it with poison making it deadlier and more corrosive to the target. It’s an extremely lethal power to have because once it touches the skin of a human, the blood can easily burn through it and corrode the body!

Users of the rot technique are only a few and these are Eso and Echizu. They first displayed this ability of theirs when they fought against Yuji Itadori and Nobara by applying “decay” on their body. Once “decay” is applied on the target, patterns are formed on the skin and will destroy the body after a certain duration (Jujutsu Kaisen, Episode 24).

14. Puppet Manipulation

14 puppet

Puppet Manipulation is literally the power of being able to control puppets and Kokichi Muta is one of the Jujutsu Sorcerers who possess this kind of ability. Muta is a 2nd year student who also attends Kyoto Jujutsu High along with Momo Nishimiya. He is one of the Jujutsu Kaisen characters that we would like to know more about !

When it comes to puppet manipulation, Muta uses a robot called Ultimate Mechamaru as his puppet and is the one who attends school for him. I’d say that this is a really convenient technique to have since he can also use his robot to fight for him in battles (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 32)!

13. Straw Doll Technique

13 straw

Next up is the straw doll technique and its known user of this cursed technique is none other than Kugisaki Nobara! Even though she’s just a 1st year student at Tokyo Jujutsu High, Nobara has displayed true expertise in using her straw doll technique.

It may seem weak in the beginning because the weapons used here are nails and a hammer, however, the technique is very powerful especially with Nobara’s “Resonance”. Resonance works by pinning a straw doll on one of your enemy’s body parts and slamming it down with a hammer that unleashes strong cursed energy towards the opponent (Jujutsu Kaisen, Episode 3).

12. Construction

12 construction

Construction is a technique mainly used by Mai Zenin and just from the name itself, it allows the user to create any object it wants to construct. It does sound very useful in battle but the downside here is that it uses up a lot of cursed energy and will have a negative impact on the body if they’re not strong enough.

For Mai Zenin’s case, her limit of using this ability was constructing one bullet a day due to her main weapon being a revolver and this already resulted in her having a nosebleed. After improving this technique of hers, she doesn’t seem to have any problems anymore when creating several bullets a day as she fought against her sister, Maki (Jujutsu Kaisen, Episode 17).

11. Idle Transfiguration

11 idle

Idle Transfiguration is one of the cursed techniques that Mahito possesses in the series. Mahito is an antagonist in Jujutsu Kaisen known for killing humans by transfiguring their body. He displayed this ability several times and it’s just so grotesque in every way you look at it! Other than that, Mahito can also use idle transfiguration on himself and can transform certain parts of his body into weapons (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 28)! Now if you can’t wait for season 2, we got some details about that with our Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 blog!

10. Disaster Flames

10 flames

Coming up next is “Disaster Flames” which is one of the abilities of the antagonist, Jogo, who is also a part of Mahito’s group. Disaster Flames is a power that can easily burn down any of its targets especially if it’s a normal human being.

Since the user of this technique is very ruthless, he unleashed this ability towards humans in a restaurant and it resulted in them experiencing an instant death. Other than burning people, Disaster Flames also allows the user to create small volcanoes that can release a burst of lava (Jujutsu Kaisen, Episode 7).

9. Ratio Technique

9 ratio

“Ratio Technique” is an ability that Nanami possesses and so far, he’s been the only one who can do this technique. Basically, his ability works by creating weak spots on his opponents with a ratio of 7:3. Which means, it doesn’t matter if the opponent doesn’t have a weak point because Nanami’s technique can create one for you! But this series, doesn’t seem to have any weakness, can it become the best shōnen anime, based on your reviews?

He used this ability when he fought against transfigured humans and a 1-on-1 fight against Mahito. In this fight, he managed to break one of Mahito’s arms off easily by using the said cursed technique (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 22).

8. Ten Shadows Technique

8 ten shadows

The “Ten Shadows Technique” is a rather unique one because it is passed down only among members of the Zenin Family including Megumi Fushiguro who is a Zenin descendant. The Ten Shadows Technique is an ability where you can summon twin wolves and use them in battle as your shikigami.

However, that’s not all there is because you can even summon more shikigamis you want only if you make them submit after you fight them during an exorcism ritual. Only then you will be able to use the new shikigami, pretty awesome right? (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 117)

7. Rika

7 rika

Another unique technique user is Rika, who is a cursed spirit and is connected to a character named Yuta Okkotsu as his cursed technique. Initially, Rika was once a human named Rika Orimoto and known for having a cursed spirit. After her death, she became a vengeful spirit famed for her title as the “Queen of Curses”.

Because of Rika’s connection to Yuta, she can allow him to use her cursed energy and copy various cursed techniques from different opponents they encounter. Other than that, Rika also has a wide range of weapons inside her body that Yuta can borrow whenever he wants (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 178)!

6. Black Flash

6 black flash

Next up is “Black Flash”, a common technique used by various Jujutsu sorcerers like Yuji, Gojo, Nobara, and a whole lot more! However, it may be a common move you’ll often see in the series but it’s still an extremely powerful one since it can enhance the physical abilities of a user by mixing it with cursed energy.

Its power was impressively displayed by Itadori Yuuji when he faced off against Hanami. All thanks to Todo giving him the knowledge in using this cursed technique, Yuuji was able to not just use this as his finishing move to Hanami but also managed to execute 4 consecutive “Black Flash” in an instant  (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 50)!

5. Cursed Speech

toge

Next up is the cursed technique of Toge Inumaki from the Inumaki family, the cursed speech. “Cursed Speech” is definitely not just a powerful technique but also a deadly one to have especially if this one falls into the wrong hands. Luckily, Inumaki is one of the good guys so we won’t have to worry about that.

So the cursed speech basically works with a user who can use words as a weapon. If a guy like Inumaki says the word “explode” to his target, then the target will literally explode itself. It’s as simple as that and that’s the reason why characters like Inumaki don’t talk much and only use words that are non-harmful.

4. Reverse Cursed Technique

4 reverse

“Reverse Cursed Technique” is a move that can be done by several powerful Jujutsu sorcerers such as Gojo, Yuta, and others. It works by converting negative cursed energy into a positive energy and is used mostly for healing purposes.

Since the normal cursed energy can’t be used to heal sorcerers, they will have to require the opposite of that cursed energy which is why the reverse cursed technique is practiced. One of the healers who utilize this ability is Shoko Ieri and she is considered a valued individual in Jujutsu High (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 113). Ifthis series has piqued your interest, then you should also check other manga like Jujutsu Kaisen!

3. Dismantle and Cleave

3 dismantle

Next thing we have here is some of Sukuna’s cursed techniques called “Dismantle” and “Cleave”. Even though this is already considered as one of the most powerful techniques, for Sukuna’s case, this is just his normal attacks and yes, he’s definitely more overpowered than you thought!

Sukuna’s “Dismantle” is basically just a slashing attack and is pretty straightforward when used in battle. However, the “Cleave” one is definitely much more unique because the effectiveness of this skill depends on the strength and amount of cursed energy of the target. The stronger the enemy, the stronger the impact of Sukuna’s “Cleave” making it a real deadly move (Jujutsu Kaisen, Episode 4).

2. Domain Expansion

2 domain

For our 2nd place, well this already goes without saying and it’s ‘Domain Expansion”. It is a skill used by many Jujutsu sorcerers and it’s considered as a special ability because the environment of these domains vary from different sorcerers!

The main function of “Domain Expansion” works similarly among sorcerers and that is to trap your enemies in a separate dimension and only the user will have full advantage of that domain. As to how you will fight against the enemy in that domain depends on the sorcerer’s skills and what cursed technique they will be using.

1. Limitless

1 limiltess

Now for our top spot would be Gojo Satoru’sLimitless” or “Infinite Void” and it’s a cursed technique exclusive only to the Gojo family. It allows the user to control space however he wants because this skill basically turns infinity into something real. “Limitless” has various capabilities and it ranges from stopping time to fusing infinities that can literally erase the enemy of its existence.

What makes Gojo’s “Limitless” more unique and powerful is that he did not just inherit the limitless cursed technique from his family but also the “Six Eyes” which is very rare because it is said that he’s the only sorcerer who possesses it in the last hundreds of years (Jujutsu Kaisen, Chapter 68)!
