Yuta Okkotsu, the newly introduced character in Jujutsu Kaisen, is now everyone’s favourite. After witnessing his powers in Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie, we can say that he might become the strongest character in the series, surpassing even Gojo Satoru.
Yuta Okkotsu is very strong and among the only four special grade Jujutsu Sorcerers in Jujutsu Kaisen. Not only strong, but he is also very skilled, and soon, he might become even stronger than Gojo Satoru, who is the strongest character in the entire series.
Yuta might show his appearance in the anime as well in the next season of Jujutsu Kaisen, and fans are desperately waiting for his arrival. He might try to kill Yuji Itadori on orders from the higher-ups at Jujutsu High.
Well, this is just a spoiler for you, and we will cover more details about the same from Manga in some other article. So let us know in the comments below if you want to know about it. Let’s see what makes Yuta Okkotsu so strong and how much more powerful he can become.
What are the Powers and Abilities of Yuta Okkotsu in Jujutsu Kaisen?
Yuta Okkotsu’s Curse Energy
Yuta Okkotsu has almost infinite Cursed Energy. His curse energy reserves are almost limitless and surpass even Gojo Satoru. Despite his Limitless, Gojo Satoru might run out of curse energy (though its chances are negligible), but Yuta will never.
In Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie, everyone is surprised by seeing the amount of Cursed Energy emitted by Yuta. The curse energy from his body brought everyone on edge. But, Yuta could not control or use his unlimited curse energy.
He was always surrounded by a thick aura of Cursed Energy but could not use it. After he learns to use the abundant curse energy within him, he becomes unstoppable. Yuta can use the curse energy to enhance his physical abilities like strength, speed, durability, reflexes, etc.
Using the curse energy Yuta’s physical abilities can be enhanced far beyond that of Itadori Yuji. We have already seen that Yuji is a monster in strength and durability. He was able to withstand multiple of Aoi’s powerful strikes easily.
Yuta can also pour his cursed energy into different objects and weapons to make them more powerful and deal more significant damage to the opponents.
Yuta Okkotsu’s Reverse Curse Technique
The reverse Curse Technique is probably the most useful curse technique. It allows the user to convert his own negative curse energy into positive curse energy and heal his own injuries. But Yuta can use this technique to heal himself and others as well.
The reverse Curse Technique is very rare, and only a few Jujutsu sorcerers can fully use it. We have seen Sukana utilising this technique to heal Itadori’s arms during his fight against the Special grade curse. Sukana eventually took him hostage by removing his heart from his body.
Yuta Okkotsu’s Special Ability
Yuta Okkotsu can copy the curse techniques of others. In Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie, we see him using Inumaki’s curse speech.
Imagine if Yuta could copy all kinds of curses like Megumi Fushiguro’s Ten Shadows and other powerful techniques from other Jujutsu Sorcerers.
If Yuta could copy Gojo Satoru’s Limitless and find a way to replicate his Six Eyes, he would surpass Gojo Satoruand become the strongest Jujutsu sorcerer in history. Because combining Limitless with his infinite cursed energy, he will become unstoppable as he will never run out of cursed energy.
The complete powers of his ability to copy cursed techniques are yet to be revealed completely but we can say for sure that if he manages to copy Gojo’s abilities like Cursed Technique Red, Blue, and Violet, he can eliminate any curse instantly.
Yuta can easily overpower Sukanaif he gains full control of his powers and abilities. But, there is something that gives him more advantage. He has the unconditional support of the Queen of Curses, Rika.
Cursed Spirit Rika
Yuta can summon the Cursed Spirit Rika. It is more of a partner than a summon. Rika is the cursed spirit of Yuta’s childhood friend, who loved him and died at a very young age. Rika became a curse and stayed with Yuta.
Rika is so powerful that she can destroy large towns easily. One of the Four Special Grade Jujutsu Sorcerers, Suguru Geto, calls her the Queen of Curses. Rika is also a special grade curse and very powerful.
Rika can also provide Yuta with her own curse energy, allowing him to use powerful large-scale attacks. She loves Yuta and would protect her at any cost.
Thus, if Yuta is attacked with a powerful attack or from his blind spot, Rika can cover up and protect him. Hence, anyone who wants to attack Yuta must pass through Rika first.
Rika also has huge amounts of cursed energy. During their first year at Jujutsu High, Suguru Geto tried to capture Rika and harness her cursed energy as it would make her unstoppable. However, Yuta fought and defeated Suguru with the help of Rika’s powers.
After that, Yuta gained a lot of experience and learned to control his immeasurable amounts of curse energy to apply them to various techniques. He can also harness Rika’s powers easily now and is among the Only Four fully Special Grade Jujutsu Sorcerers.
Is Yuta Okkotsu Stronger than Gojo Satoru?
Gojo Satoru is Yuta’s teacher and one of the four special grade Jujutsu Sorcerers. Currently, he is the strongest in Jujutsu Kaisen but if Yuta Okkotsu harnesses his powers and can apply them to the full extent, he will definitely become stronger than Gojo Satoru.
Suppose he could copy Gojo Satoru’s Limitless cursed technique. In that case, he will become unstoppable as his immense storage of curse energy would never be exhausted, and there will be no limit to the cursed techniques he could use.
Let us know what you think about Yuta Okkotsu in the comments below. Can he become stronger than Gojo Satoru?
Is Yuta stronger than Itadori Yuji?
Yes, Yuta is definitely stronger than Itadori Yuji. In terms of raw strength, speed, and agility, he cannot even reach near Itadori, but when he uses his cursed energy to enhance his physical abilities, he is far better than Yuji.
Also, when Itadori consumes and absorbs most of Sukuna’s fingers, the higher Jujutsu Sorcerers would hire Yuta Okkotsu to kill Itadori Yuji and Sukuna with him. They had him make a binding vow to kill Itadori.
Yuta killed Itadori, and as soon as his heart stopped, he healed him again with his Reverse Cursed Technique. Thereby he killed Itadori and fulfilled his vow but also managed to save his life.
Even if Itadori learns to fully control and use Sukuna’s powers, it cannot be said for sure that he could win against Yuta. So let us know in the comments below who you think is stronger.
Is Yuta weaker without Rika?
Rika is Yuta’s power and makes him stronger, but Yuta cannot be called weaker without Rika. He still has his huge reserves of Curse Energy, which are almost unlimited. Also, he can copy cursed techniques.
But, with Rika’s abilities, Yuta can pull off large scale attacks and target even long distances with huge powerful attacks. Without Rika, Yuta’s line of defence also is compromised as Rika is more like his partner and protects him from any dangerous attack.
Hence Yuta is not exactly weaker without Rika, but his strength increases exponentially with her. So, What do you think about this duo? Dropdown your thoughts in the comments below, let us know what you think about Yuta Okkotsu.
