Will Itadori Yuji die at the end of Jujutsu Kaisen? Who will kill Itadori? 

Itadori Yuji is the main protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen, and the manga is expected to conclude by the end of 2023. 

Those who have already watched the anime will know that Itadori Yuji is the vessel to Sukuna, the strongest cursed spirit, aka the King of Curses. 

Therefore as fans, you might have questions like whether Itadori Yuuji dies in the series or he will survive towards the end of the manga. 

Let’s discuss what will happen to Itadori Yuji at the end of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga. 

Itadori Yuuji’s death: Will Itadori Yuji die at the end of Jujutsu Kaisen?

Well, those who have watched the anime or read the manga would know that since the time Yuji Itadori consumed the first finger of Ryomen Sukuna, his fate was decided that he would have to die eventually. 

Because a single finger of Sukuna can kill a normal human being as it possesses an enormous amount of curse energy, but when Itadori consumed Sukuna’s first finger for a brief moment, he was transformed into Sukuna.

But later, he is able to control Sukuna as he returns to his senses after Sukuna fights with Gojo Satoru for a brief amount of time. 

Later on, in the series, we see that the higher-ups of Jujutsu High School also want Itadori Yuji dead because they do not want a dangerous vessel like Itadori to be present among them. 

Except for Gojo, all the higher-ups fear that Itadori will eventually be a re-incarnated Sukuna and may cause havoc and many innocent lives will be lost, and that’s probably the reason why Gojo takes Itadori as his student because he wants him to control the powerful curse technique, which will help him to Sukuna in control.  

Therefore only because of Gojo Sotoru, Itadori’s execution was postponed, and Yuji accepted the suggestion of Gojo to consume as many fingers as possible.

Then when the time comes, he will be executed, and Sukuna’s curse spirit will also diminish along with him. 

Itadori agreed to this as he wanted the world to be a safer place. 

In the manga, during the Shibuya incident, Itadori Yuji consumed more than 15 fingers, and that led to Sukuna taking over Yuji’s body and going on a killing rampage, as Gojo Soturo was out with another mission; therefore, he wasn’t able to help Itadori.

The Higher-ups had decided to execute Itadori.

Nobara Kugisaki tragically passed away while fighting Mahito, and Itadori was completely heartbroken as he lost his best friend.  

After this, the higher-ups brought in Yuta Okkotsu to kill Itadori after forcing him to make a binding vow.

Therefore Yuta confronted Itadori and managed to kill him and fulfilled the promise, completing the binding vow.

But later on, he also healed Itadori using his reverse cursed technique, so technically, Itadori Yuji died at the hands of Yuta, but later on, he was revived by him. 

You can go through the article below to know what happened in the Shibuya arc and also read about how Yuta managed to kill Itadori.

Does Itadori Yuji wants to die? Who will kill Itadori? 

Yes! Itadori Yuji accepts his fate in Jujutsu Kaisen and that he eventually will have to die for the betterment of the world. 

In Shibuya Arc, when Itadori Yuji consumed almost 15 fingers of Sukuna, he lost control of his body, and Sukuna took over. 

Then Sukuna wreaked havoc and took many innocent lives. 

The death of Nobara Kugisaki, Nanami Kento and Junpei Yoshino in front of his own eyes took a mental toll on Yuji. 

He eventually had a self-realization that neither the Jujutsu Higher-ups nor most of his colleagues wanted to see him alive hence he decided that after consuming 20 fingers of Sukuna, he would have to die. 

Furthermore, I think Sukuna will also want Yuji to die because his real plans are associated with Megumi Fushiguro.

As we all know that Sukuna, from the beginning of Jujutsu Kaisen, is obsessed with Megumi Fushiguro because he has his own powerful innate curse technique (Ten Shadows Technique). 

Considering the powers of both Itadori and Megumi, we can clearly understand that Megumi is more powerful than Itaodri; hence the ultimate plan of Sukuna is to reincarnate himself fully in Megumi’s body. 

Eventually, he will possess Megumi Fushiguro’s body after Itadori eats all 20 fingers. 

He would want to reincarnate himself within Megumi because Megumi possesses a stronger body and the one Sukuna can control fully; therefore, Sukuna will also want Itadori to die. 

Akutami has already hinted at the above theory in Chapter 212 of Jujutsu Kaisen. 

I believe the King of Curses, Sukuna, will somehow manage to separate himself from Itadori Yuji’s body and then probably he would possess Megumi and kill Itadori.

After fully possessing Megumi and reincarnating himself, he would have further plans for Megumi, which will be revealed in the later chapters. 

As per Akutami, he is already done with 70% of the manga and has a plan for the ending.

It wouldn’t be wrong to assume that Megumi, Itadori, and Sukuna’s fates are all intertwined, and probably Gojo Satoru will have to make a tough choice on whom to kill and whom to save.
