  • More puzzling stuff happens in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 238, called “Battle Against the Strongest,” which begins with showing Sukuna’s special X-ray eyes to look at Kashimo, and how the authors explain Sukuna’s “perfect” form.
  • Sukuna now has four arms, so he can use two of them for hand signs while keeping the other two free. He also has two mouths through which he can chant for new powers that makes him superior to any other sorcerer in the JJK world.

Kashimo is amazed by how perfect Sukuna looks and calls him “beautiful” before attacking. Sukuna uses a powerful move called “Dismantle Slash,” which is the same move that killed Satoru Gojo. After some brief talking of love and mercy between Sukuna and Kashimo, Sukuna proves himself to be the strongest warrior alive and kills Kashimo.

The final panels of the Chapter then show us the ultimate duo – Yuji and Higuruma entering the battle to fight against Sukuna. But what happened to Yuji’s hands? Did he eat the last finger? Did he awaken his cursed technique?

Fans have always believed that Yuji Itadori would be the one to defeat Sukuna, right from the start. The big question was how he would do it. Well, now the answer might be just in front of us. As this chapter showed us the new wielding claws of Yuji which might be reminiscent of Sukuna’s cursed techniques.

Some believe Yuji’s changed forearms might be a clue about his Cursed Technique, which has been hinted at in the story before. But somewhere in Chapter 222, it was also said that Yuji’s Technique might be connected to switching bodies.

While the one thing that pops out the most is that being the vessel of Sukuna, the biggest advantage that Yuji has is that he could eventually acquire Sukuna’s cursed technique for himself. It was Gojo who had made it clear that over time, Sukuna’s cursed technique could merge with Yuji’s and he would make it his own.

Will Yuji become the strongest sorcerer after this fight?

Sukuna has never viewed Yuji as a danger, but that could change, especially since Kenjaku respects the young sorcerer greatly. Yuji might not be the strongest sorcerer, however, this fight can possibly change the whole game.

  • Since both Yuji and Sukuna have the same cursed techniques, Yuji should have a better chance of resisting Sukuna’s powers compared to anyone else. This is what everyone should be counting on right now.
  • As he defeats Sukuna, he will undoubtedly become one of the most powerful, although not necessarily the absolute strongest.
