Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen, shounen jump’s most beloved dark fantasy and action manga, has just released its latest chapter. And with season 2 of the anime creating brand new hype, we would like to bring to you a list of the Top 10 Strongest Villains in Jujutsu Kaisen.

Today’s article will discuss the 10 Most Powerful Villains of Jujutsu Kaisen not only in regards to physical prowess but also in terms of their manipulation and strategies.

10. Jogo 

Jogo Jujutsu Kaisen

Species: Unregistered special grade cursed spirit

The leader of the sentient cursed spirits whose goal was to eliminate humanity and replace them as the “true” beings, Jogo was a powerful unregistered cursed spirit who could even be a special grade. Soon he handed the leadership over to Mahito. 

Despite being arrogant and hot-headed, Jogo had good analytical skills. He wasn’t weak or lacked intelligence, instead, he was unlucky in matters of choosing his opponents. His first battle was against Gojo Satoru, the strongest sorcerer and his second was Sukuna, the King of curses.

9. Naoya Zenin

Naoya Zenin Jujutsu Kaisen

Species: Human

Naoya Zenin was the youngest son of Naobito Zenin, who believed that he was the true heir of the Zenin clan. He was also the head of the clan’s elite unit of sorcerers, the Hei. Since he was young, he was shown to be abusive towards his cousins Maki and Mai, belittling them for being born without cursed energy till they left the clan. 

Once he learned that Megumi will be the next head of the clan, Naoya didn’t hesitate to plot a way to kill him. He didn’t wait for the approval of his senior clansmen and attacked Megumi’s allies to draw him out and was even willing to kill them. Without a doubt, he is one of the 10 Best Villains in JJK.

8. Hanami

Hanami Jujutsu Kaisen

Species: Curse Spirit

Hanami was a cursed spirit that spoke for the trees. Her unique speech made them an intriguing antagonist in JJK. Her battle with Yuji and Todo is easily one of the most visually impressive fights in anime that kept the audience captivated till the last moment.

Hanami’s durability and capability to adapt to any situation makes her a force to be reckoned with. She was able to pick up on Todo’s technique very quickly with her tough resilience via trial and error. Hanami was also smart enough to retreat when faced against Gojo himself as her technique allowed her to even hide from the six-eyes detection. 

7. Yorozu

Yorozu Jujutsu Kaisen

Species: Thousand years old cursed spirit

A sorcerer who lived thousand years ago, Yorozu was incarnated via Tsumiki Fushiguro’s body for the Culling Game. Yorozu was a powerful sorcerer from Ainu when she was alive during the Heian era. She was also obsessed with Sukuna at first sight and she immediately wanted to relieve his loneliness with her love by killing him.

Yorozu didn’t care for Megumi Fushiguro or his sister. She possessed Tsumiki’s body and acted like her to fool Megumi for her own selfish gains. She laughed as she revealed her true self to Meumi, while claiming to be his elder sister. 

6. Uraume

Uraume Jujutsu Kaisen

Species: Thousand years old curse user

A recurring antagonist in the series, Uraume iwhite-hairedired monk who is a curse user from a thousand years ago and is a subordinate of Sukuna. Uraume sided with Kenjaku to seal Satoru Gojo and help Sukuna revive his true glory.

Apart from being loyal to Sukuna, Uraume is also extremely ruthless in battles. Uraume is an extremely experienced sorcerer who easily defeated over half a dozen powerful sorcerers.

5. Geto Suguru

Geto Suguru JJK

Species: Human

Once the best friend of Gojo Satoru, Geto’s fall from grace was truly an unfortunate sight. Ever since the Toji encounter, Geto started questioning his ideals, which eventually he deserted once he saw how terribly some villagers treated 2 kids with cursed energy.

Ever since then, his goal has been to kill every non-sorcererrer humans, including his parents. Geto’s cursed technique involves Curse Manipulation which makes him a formidable foe. 

4. Mahito 

Mahito JJK

Species: Cursed spirit

Even though he wasn’t the main antagonist of the series, Mahito managed to kill 3 protagonists of the story. That alone makes him one of the most dangerous curses in the jujutsu world. 

His domain and cursed techniques are a cruel demonstration which involves transforming humans into distorted beings. Mahito was able to head-on on with both Yuji and Nobara at the same time. His cheerful behaviour while disfiguring his victims easily makes him one of the most despicable villains.

3. Sukuna 

Sukuna JJK

Species: Thousand years old cursed spirit

Ryomen Sukuna, the King of curses, is the strongest cursed spirit to exist. As hinted in the beginning, Sukuna with the power of 10 fingers might be a fair competitor for Gojo.  We can see a mere glimpse of Sukuna’s power in the Shibuya arc which left the city and the heroes in tatters of ruins. 

Unlike other traditional villains, Sukuna has proved himself to be unique in the way that he neither sides with the other evil curses nor with the sorcerers. He merely wants to watch everything burn in accordanwith with his own plans. Not only he is one of the 10 Strongest Villains in JJK he is also one of the strongest characters.

2. Toji Fushiguro

Toji Fushiguro JJK

Species: Human

Dub as the Sorcerer Killer, Toji Fushiguro was the only person to have defeated Satoru Gojo. Despite being born with no curse energy, Toji puts up a good fight with jujutsu sorcerers. 

His heavenly restriction allows him to possess immense physical strength. And with the help of cursed tools, he becomes a force to be reckoned with. He played a key role in the story, being the one who started it all by stopping Lord Tengen’s merge as well as planting seeds of doubt in Suguru Geto’s mind.

1. Kenjaku

Kenjaku Jujutsu Kaisen

Species: Thousand years old cursed spirit

A master manipulator and strategist, kenjaku is an evil cursed spirit who is thousands of years old. He has plagued the Kamo clan by possessing Noritoshi Kamo and tainting his name in the history. He is Choso’s father as well as Yuji Itadori’s since he possessed Yuji’s mother before she gave birth to him which resulted in Yuji being the perfect vessel for the king of curses, Sukuna. 

Any and everything that has happened in the storyline so far has been planned by Kenjaku, the most dangerous sorcerer to ever exist. His role is similar to a puppeteer, pulling the strings from the background and watching the consequences unfold. He even managed to seal away the strongest sorcerer which left the jujutsu society vulnerable. 

Kenjaku just might be the one to truly defeat the recently unsealed Gojo Satoru.

Your Questions on JJK

Is Sukuna good or evil?

As of now, Sukuna has not done a single thing to be called good. So it’s obvious that we can mark him as one of the major antagonists of JJK. He tormented Yuji time after time and drove him towards being mentally broken. In the latest chapters, he took over Megumi’s body and yet again tormented Yuji and others.

Is Kenjaku stronger than Gojo?

If Gojo and Kenjaku were to fight head-on, it’s obvious that Gojo will dominate and win the battle overwhelmingly. However, as an ancient being Kenjaku has a lot of knowledge of CT and Curses so he never ever faced Gojo head on and always relied on tricks to stop Gojo. It’s really tough to say the result of their battle before as one is truly confident in his skill while the other one has a cunning brain.

Conclusion

Jujutsu Kaisen has been an indulging story with a lot of unique characters— protagonists and antagonists alike. The above 10 characters have proven themselves worthy of their spot on the list as the best villains in the animanga. 

Kenjaku might be the most cunning villain but the others are unique in their own ways, their strategies and macabre intentions put life in the manga. Seeing the outcome of our beloved heroes face off these villains has been the utmost entertainment.
