My Favourite Jujutsu Kaisen Theories

MANGA SPOILERS AHEAD

I love a good theory as much as the next person. Jujutsu Kaisen has risen in popularity by tenfold since the anime aired and with this popularity has come an increase in theories. As the story progresses especially in the manga, there’s questions viewers have that these theories aim to answer:

Why is Yuji Sukuna’s Vessel?

There’s a theory that Yuji can be Sukuna’s vessel because he’s linked to Sukuna.

Sukuna is an actual Japanese legend – he’s a being with 4 arms and two faces. In some places the legend says that Sukuna was a kind spirit who saved villagers, but in other places the legend says that Sukuna was evil and that he killed and tortured people.

Because in Jujutsu Kaisen Sukuna is presented as pure evil though, this has lead some viewers to speculate that the ‘kind’ side of Sukuna could be Yuji.

This theory explains that the evil side of Sukuna was sealed away in his 20 fingers while his good side reincarnates as Yuji. This is used to explain why Yuji is the ‘1 in 1 million’ who can act as Sukuna’s vessel and why Yuji has enhanced superhuman physical abilities even before he ate his first cursed finger.

Is Yuji a Cursed Womb Death Painting?

This theory is discussed HERE. I loved reading this article because it explains a few theories regarding this question and what we have learnt in the manga about Yuji, Choso, their relationship and Yuji’s parents.

What is Toji’s Cursed Spirit Worm?

Toji has a cursed spirit worm that he takes with him to hold his weapons. Although Toji can’t actually see the spirit since he has zero cursed energy, he can sense its presence with his heightened senses. There’s a sad theory I saw HERE made by Tumblr user kaitinumaki about why this cursed spirit stays with Toji.

  1. People do realize if Yuji gains Sukuna’s abilities, the same could be said about Sukuna gaining itadori’s. Some hints in the manga get me thinking he is going to memory manipulate Megumi. xfire says no way current Megumi would do what he says willingly. Sukuna is the Grandfather of Yuji After His grandfather died Yuji Got sukuna And sukuna has like same hair as His Grandfather

    1. Interesting theories! I definitely think that for whatever Sukuna wants to make Megumi do, there will have to be some form of manipulation to make him do it since Sukuna without the 20 fingers doesn’t seem able to just ‘take’ whatever he wants atm 🤔
