Why Is Itadori So Strong in Jujutsu Kaisen? – This is a question that every Jujutsu Kaisen fan is excited and curious to know.

Well, there are some fan theories and hints given by the author of Jujutsu Kaisen manga Gege Akatumi to answer – Why is Yuji Itadori so strong.

Yuji Itadori is the protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen anime by Gege Akatumi.

Yuji Itadori has superhuman strength just from the starting.

Itadori is physically strong, but he also has incredible mental power.

From the day when Yuji Itadori was just a kid, he possessed incredible superhuman strength, which distinguished him from the other kids around him.

The Jujutsu Kaisen anime started with Yuji being a high school student.

However, many things about his past are unclear and unknown to the Jujutsu Kaisen fans.

Despite being physically strong, he never shows interest in sports that need physical strength.

Even before Yuji Itadori could use cursed energy and cursed techniques, he was super strong and saved his friends from a curse.

After Itadori consumed Sukuna’s finger, i.e. a powerful cursed object, Itadori was in complete control.

Itadori could switch back whenever he wanted. He even suppressed Sukuna, who is also known as the “King of Curses”.

(Spoiler alert)

There is a rumour that the superhuman strength of Yuji Itadori has some kind of relationship with his mother, which might be revealed in the anime or manga further.

Itadori Yuji’s Powers and Abilities Explained-Itadori’s Cursed Technique

When we are speaking about Jujutsu Kaisen, cursed energy and cursed techniques are some that make it more interesting.

Yuji Itadori is one of the most influential and powerful students. He has great potential and a firm resolve.

 Everyone has a different cursed technique, just like Megumi uses Latterr’s Ten Shadow Technique.

Yuji Itadori can use cursed energy after eating Sukuna’s finger, a powerful cursed object. After he ate Sukuna’s finger, cursed energy began to flow through him.

Itadori has raw superhuman strength. He combines it with his cursed energy to land fatal blows. His cursed technique allows him to land harmful attacks with a delay after his physical attack.

Why is Itadori so strong?- An Instance when we could have got a hint regarding how strong Itadori is so strong.

Itadori Yuji always had a habit of visiting his Grandfather, who was ill in hospital. His Grandfather might have known that he had very little time left to live.

 Itadori didn’t know anything about his parents.

When his Grandfather was on his death bed, Itadori said that he had some free time and wanted to tell him something.

Itadori replied to it by saying, ” Not interested”.

But his Grandfather insisted on listening to him anyway.

It was about his parents, who might have had some relation to Itadori’s superhuman strength.

 Itadori had no interest in knowing about his parents.

So this was where the Jujutsu Kaisen fans could have known about Itadori’s strength.

His Grandfather passed away. Before he passed away, he asked Itadori always to help those in need as Itadori was special.

Some Instances When Itadori Displayed His Superhuman Strength 

At the start of Jujutsu Kaisen, we saw that Itadori was asked to leave the Occult Phenomenon Research Club, a club that studied and researched spirits-related instances.

Itadori was asked to join the Track and Field team.

Yuji Itadori was provided with the condition by Coach Takagi, their sports teacher (Coach Takagi is the only more problematic teacher than his students).

If Itadori could defeat him in a game of physical strength, then he could still be a member of the Occult Phenomenon Research Club. Or else he has to join the Track and Field team.

Itadori defeated him single-handedly.

When Itadori passed Megumi Fushiguro for the first time, Megumi experienced a cursed object’s presence.

Then, Itadori ran so fast that Megumi couldn’t even see him.

There were rumours in the school where Itadori was a student that Itadori could run 50 meters in just 3 seconds.

Itadori’s school friends Sasaki and Iguchi were in possession of one of Sukuna’s twenty fingers, which is considered a robust cursed object.

They unwrapped it without knowing what it was, attracting cursed solid spirits.

They were attacked by the spirits and were in a potent danger.

Itadori rushed to the location in an attempt to save his friends.

But unfortunately, this was when Itadori could see the cursed spirits without knowing about the cursed energy.

Itadori entered the second floor through the window and saved his friends from the cursed spirits without hesitating.

He also fought some of the cursed spirits despite being not able to use cursed energy and cursed techniques.

How Strong will Yuji Itadori be? 

The answer to this question is quite obvious.

Yuji Itadori is the protagonist of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime.

Itadori is quite strong when it comes to natural or raw human strength.

And speaking about the use of cursed energy and cursed techniques, Itadori has a long way to go.

Itadori is quite good when it comes to learning and understanding cursed energy.

One plus point is that Itadori is a student of Gojo Satoru, who is considered one of the strongest characters in the Jujutsu Kaisen Universe.

Gojo is also the most famous and loved character in Jujutsu Kaisen.

So being a student of Gojo, Itadori is guaranteed to become the strongest among the Jujutsu Sorcerers.

Can Itadori use Sukuna’s powers?

There is no hint about Itadori using Sukuna’s powers.

But there is a possibility that we may get to see it in the near future.

Sukuna’s primary cursed technique is the use of reverse cursed techniques.

It is an awe-inspiring cursed technique which also allows him to regenerate.

Sukuna’s domain expansion technique is the Monovalent Shrine.

It will be really amazing to watch Itadori use these cursed techniques and Sukuna’s domain expansion.
