Since the beginning of Jujutsu Kaisen, Gege Akutami has been giving hints that Sukuna is interested in Megumi, and this possible interest in Fushiguro has been brought up even more recently.
So, why is Sukuna interested in Megumi?
With its unique story, power system, and very likable characters, Jujutsu Kaisen has taken the anime world by storm.
Every character has their own unique traits and curse techniques, from Gojo’s crystal blue eyes to Itadori’s desire to save people by eating their fingers.
Everything about him, from who he is to what he can do, is the main focus of the story. Because of this, people are very interested in what he does with the Demon God Sukuna.
Why is Sukuna Interested in Megumi?
Megumi Fushigoro’s Ten Shadows Technique is what makes Ryomen Sukuna interested in her. In the anime and manga, there are hints that Sukuna wants Megumi to improve his technique and give him a body because he couldn’t beat Itadori’s.
During the Cursed Womb Arc, when the three first-years faced a special grade demon, Sukuna became interested in Megumi.
Itadori’s life was in danger, so he had no choice but to let Sukuna take over his body and give Fushiguro time to find Nobara and escape.
After Sukuna took over Yuji’s body, Yuji was not able to wake up right away. Fushiguro got ready to use his “trump card” to wake Itadori up or, in the worst case, kill him.
During this scene, Sukuna’s interest in Megumi’s cursed technique grew, as did his sense of what he could be.
In the most recent chapters, Sukuna made a bet with Jogo that if Jogo could kill him, he would kill every human in Shibuya except Megumi.
Even before this scene, it was said that Sukuna only cared about Fushiguro. Below, we will try to figure out why this is the case.
Sukuna to Become Megumi’s Shikigami
Sukuna was happy when Itadori first ate his finger. He thought that being alive in a fleshly body was better than being alive in a cursed spirit body.
But Yuji’s self-control was better than he thought, which led to Sukuna being locked up in his body.
In fact, he now has to deal with the constant fear that Yuji will eat his fingers and put him down for good.
What could be better than having his own body to be truly free? And this is why Sukuna is so interested in Megumi.
The Ten Shadows Technique of the Zenin Clan is Megumi’s cursed technique. It lets him summon up to 10 Shikigami, each of which has its own unique abilities.
Once a Shikigami is killed, its cursed energy is passed on to the others, making them much stronger than they were before.
In this situation, the last Shikigami standing would be the strongest and most skilled, right?
Some people think that Sukuna wants to use Megumi’s ability to create a new body.
By making a deal with Megumi and becoming his new Shikigami, all Sukuna will have to do to get a very powerful body is kill the other Shikigami and get away from Fushiguro’s control.
But this can only happen if the shadow technique is perfected and maybe even changed into something completely different. This would also explain why Sukuna wants Megumi to stay alive.
What is Sukuna’s True Cursed Technique?
The first theory is a bit far-fetched, but this one has more clear signs, which makes it more realistic.
Sukuna is the most powerful cursed spirit to date and is known as the King of Curses. However, not much is known about his powers.
At first, people thought that Sukuna’s cursed technique had something to do with cleaving. However, when he fought Jogo, he suddenly attacked with fire and said that he would use Jogo’s special ability to fight.
If you think that Sukuna can copy other people’s cursed moves, these few panels are important. When we look at Malevolent Shrine, Sukuna’s technique for expanding his domain, we can see that this theory is even more likely to be true.
People think that, as the name suggests, the shrine is where Sukuna can keep the skills he has stolen from cursed spirits and sorcerers.
He might also be interested in Megumi and his Ten Shadows Technique because he wants to learn it and add it to his skillset.
Su kuna’s strength is still a mystery, but there’s no doubt about his ability to drive people insane.
Some fans joke that he’s like Hisoka, but without the perversion. This is because a character this strong wouldn’t care about Megumi for any reason other than to see him grow into an interesting opponent.
We can only wait until Akutami Sensei shows us something else that will blow our minds. And make guesses. Why do you think it’s happening?
