Jujutsu Kaisen Theory: Why Is Sukuna Interested In Megumi Fushiguro?

  • Ryomen Sukuna has shown a great interest in Megumi Fushiguro’s Latter’s Ten Shadow Technique.
  • Megumi’s self-serving nature
  • Ryomen Sukuna might have some relation with the Zenin Clan in the past, as Megumi was born with the Family’s most celebrated Cursed Technique. (Theory)

Why Is Sukuna Interested In Megumi?- Let’s talk about Megumi’s Second Encounter with Sukuna

In episode 5(Curse womb must die – 2) of Jujutsu Kaisen, Ryomen Sukuna asks Itadori to switch back already, but Itadori doesn’t.

Sukuna takes control of Itadori’s body and is about to set on a rampage to slaughter innocent lives.

Sukuna encounters Megumi and says there is no reason to be scared as Sukuna was in a very great mood at that moment as Itadori was facing some trouble switching back.

Sukuna was always thinking of different ways to take out Itadori’s heart as Sukuna could live without a soul (heart), but Itadori could not.

Sukuna removes Itadori’s heart and throws it away in front of Megumi.

As soon as Itadori switches with Sukuna, he is as good as dead.

After defeating the cursed spirit possessing Sukuna’s finger, Sukuna ate the finger and now was more powerful.

As Itadori could not switch back, Sukuna was now as free as a bird and decided to kill Megumi Fushiguro. Megumi was a bit scared at that moment.

At that moment, Megumi realizes that Sukuna could use reverse cursed techniques.

Megumi was shivering while facing Sukuna. He could use his Shikigami, but he still chose to fight Sukuna himself.

A few of Megumi’s Shikigami was destroyed during the battle.

The battle was one-sided as Sukuna dominated it as he was way stronger than Megumi.

Sukuna, while enjoying his fight with Megumi, realizes that Megumi uses the Shadows to create the Shikigami. He also realizes that it is not a generic technique that uses charms.

The cursed technique is adaptable as well.

The above was the first thing that Sukuna found exciting and why Sukuna is interested in Megumi.

When Megumi almost gave up, he had a glimpse of his past, which gave him the confidence to fight and strengthen his resolve.

Megumi, at that time, was planning on using his secret treasure cursed technique.

And Sukuna was thrilled and filled with joy, saying Megumi show me what you got. This was the second reason when

Sukuna wanted to see Megumi’s potential and grow him to see a great opponent.

But Megumi whispers some words in the end, which leads Itadori to take back control of his body.

There is very little information about Sukuna’s Cursed Techniques.

We learned about one of his cursed techniques while Sukuna’s fight with Megumi, i.e. reverse cursed techniques. 

This technique also allows him to reverse the curses, as he once regenerated Itadori‘s arm and fingers in a fight against a special cursed spirit.

There must be a reason he is titled the “King of Curses“.

In the fight against Jogo, Sukuna unleashed a different type of cursed attack technique.

Sukuna’s domain expansion technique is the Monovalent Shrine. There is also a rumour that Sukuna can copy others’ curse techniques and store them in his domain expansion, i.e. the Monovalent Shrine.

As the Manga suggests, Ryomen Sukuna was a human thousand years ago.

In the golden age of Jujutsu, sorcerers gathered all their might to challenge Sukuna, and all of them failed. Sukuna defeated them all.

He was crowned with the title of Sukuna.

The members from the Zenin Clan might have also challenged Sukuna facing defeat but giving Sukuna a run for his money.

He was a human sorcerer in the golden age of Jujutsu.

After Sukuna was dead, he turned into a cursed spirit.

Sukuna had such a strong curse that Sukuna’s body could not be destroyed entirely.

His remains were twenty indestructible fingers preserved in grave wax that traversed through the ages as super-strong cursed objects.

These cursed objects are continuously growing in power.

There might be a role of the Zenin Clan as the Zenin family is one of the oldest Jujutsu Sorcerers Family that has passed down its Latter’s Ten Shadow Technique which might have posed a threat to Sukuna.

Megumi was born with this Latterr’s Ten Shadow Technique, which is why Sukuna is Interested in Megumi.
