Ryomen Sukuna or simply known as Sukuna, is one of the most beloved antagonists of all time. He is one of the main adversaries of a series titled Jujutsu Kaisen. Sukuna is a mighty cursed spirit. He is also renowned as the undisputed King of Curses. Though he is undoubtedly a bad guy, fans took quite a liking towards him. However, there is certainly a reason behind it. Ryomen Sukuna’s twisted mind, unpredictable behavior, sarcastic nature, bold personality instantly became everyone’s favorite.
Sukuna is ready to kill who looks down on him, including his own kind. However, Gege Akutami is yet to reveal the full potential of Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen. But he already revealed that during his time, Sukuna’s power was on the same level as Gojo Satoru. So, below are all the interesting facts about Ryomen Sukuna that everyone Jujutsu Kaisen fan must know.
Who is Ryomen Sukuna & How Did He Become a Curse?
At the beginning of Jujutsu Kaisen, it was revealed that Sukuna was an Imaginary Demon. He existed during the golden age of Jujutsu almost 1000 years ago. However, Ryomen Sukuna was actually an immensely powerful human sorcerer. But all the other sorcerers killed him. Sukuna was so powerful that he was considered a threat to humanity. As a result, all the other sorcerers collectively decided to kill this unbeatable sorcerer.
After the death, Sukuna became a cursed spirit. However, the curse was way too strong to hold for his body. As a result, the cursed spirit of Sukuna got divided into 20 indestructible fingers. These fingers are known as Special grade cursed objects. Yuji Itadori, the primary protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen, consumed these fingers, and he became a vessel to Ryomen Sukuna. He will complete his reincarnation inside Yuji Itadori’s body once he eats all twenty of his fingers.
Ryomen Sukuna’s Real Appearance
Since Sukuna is now inside Yuji’s body, his physical appearance has changed a lot. We can also say the present Sukuna to be the altered version of Yuji. When Sukuna appeared out of Yuji, tattoos and marks also appeared on Itadori’s body, along with a second set of eyes, and the fingernails also got sharp. On the other hand, the original appearance of Ryomen Sukuna is quite intimidating, just like a demon.
According to the legends, Sukuna has two faces and four arms. The fact that Sukuna’s cursed energy got divided into twenty fingers pretty much explained the four arms thing. Also, Sukuna used to wear a loose Kimono with two additional holes for two extra limbs. There is a possibility that the fans will get to see this demon Sukuna once he completes his reincarnation.
King Of Curses Power & Abilities
It is not wrong to say that Sukuna is the most powerful cursed spirit in the entire Jujutsu Kaisen series. The anime fans are yet to see it, but the manga readers already got a glimpse of what Sukuna is capable of during the Shibuya Incident Arc. His cursed energy is as strong as Gojo but is entirely different in nature. In the anime, he demonstrated his power when he almost killed Mahito. Ryomen Sukuna is a master in hand-to-hand combat and can kill any opponent in close-range combat.
Furthermore, he can unite his curse energy to enhance his hand-to-hand prowess making it extremely difficult for any opponent to counter. Also, it goes without saying that Sukuna has immense speed and tremendous strength. Along with them, the super-fast reflexes of Sukuna make him even more lethal. Ryomen Sukuna has a great intellect, and he can create strategies instantly to deal with his opponent. Also, the King of Curses has the ability to create new eyes and mouths wherever he likes on the body of his host.
Ryomen Sukuna’s Jujustu
Since Ryomen Sukuna is the undisputed King of Curses, it goes without saying that he has an immense amount of cursed energy. With its help, Sukuna can use the Reversed Cursed technique that allows him to regenerate and heal any damaged part of this body just by reversing the curse. Sukuna can bind people with vows and can make a contract with him. He also has a Binding Vow with Yuji Itadori when he revived him after this apparent death.
The innate cursed technique of Sukuna is still unknown. But he can slash any target just by using his cursed energy. Also, just like everyone else, Ryomen Sukuna also has a unique domain expansion known as Malevolent Shrine. This domain expansion has a unique characteristic. It does not create an entirely different space. Instead, it forms a binding vow using an escape route.
