Jujutsu Kaisen manga is currently in its final stretch after killing off several characters – so here’s a list of the 10 strongest characters that are currently alive.

Jujutsu Kaisen’s brutal storytelling doesn’t even spare the most popular characters, such as Gojo and Nanami, and so many more. The story is set in a world where negative emotions pile up and give birth to cursed spirits who threaten the people’s safety. 

Jujutsu sorcerers risk their lives to defeat those curses and also guide young students to do the same. However, the battle against curses is never-ending since they will continue to exist as long as humans do. If that wasn’t bad enough, there are also curse users who go against the sorcerers.

After losing against Jogo in the Shibuya Incident, Maki goes through a lot of trials before unlocking the full extent of her heavenly-restricted body, which is comparable to Toji Fushiguro.

Yuji can also use Black Flash, which multiplies the output of his physical attacks.
