Jujutsu Kaisen Toge Inumaki

Toge Inumaki is a popular character in Jujutsu Kaisen, known for only speaking rice ball ingredients. Though he appears very little in the story, he expectedly loses an arm at the end of the second season. Here’s an overview of the situation.

Toge Inumaki is a major character in Jujutsu Kaisen. He’s a second-year student at the Tokyo Jujutsu High and a Cursed Speech user. Because of his technique, Toge always speaks in rice ball ingredients to avoid accidentally cursing others. However, despite his silent nature, he is still well-loved among fans.

Despite playing a major role during the Goodwill Event and the subsequent attack by Hanami, Toge doesn’t appear all that much in the following arcs. Because of all the chaos going on in Shibuya, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 barely shows him and focuses on other characters. His status is finally revealed when he Yuta makes his debut in the main story in the second season finale.

While Toge looked perfectly fine the last time we see him in the anime, the finale episode features a scene where he is standing with his arm cut off. Now the question is how Toge lost his arm in Jujutsu Kaisen. Delve deeper to find out. Warning: This article contains brief spoilers from the manga!

How did Toge Inumaki lose his arm in Jujutsu Kaisen?

Jujutsu Kaisen Toge arm

Toge Inumaki plays a very small role in the Shibuya Incident Arc. The last time viewers see him is when Yuji is heading toward the Shibuya Station to find Gojo. As Yuji is surrounded by a bunch of transfigured humans, Toge arrives to help him. Having his senior there helps Yuji make up his mind to go to Gojo’s location.

Toge doesn’t appear for a while after that but it can be assumed that he has been the transfigured humans. He makes another brief appearance later in the story when he’s seen looking over the civilians in Shibuya. What happens next to Toge is shown towards the end of the arc.

When Yuji leaves Toge behind to enter the Shibuya Station, he ends up fighting Choso. We all know what happens afterward. Yuji loses to tremendously and loses consciousness while Jogo feeds him several of Sukuna’s fingers at once, allowing the King of Curses to take control of Yuji’s body. Sukuna then plunges Shibuya into chaos.

When Megumi summons Mahoraga before passing out, Sukuna is forced to fight one of his strongest opponents. During his intense fight against the humongous Shikigami, a large part of Shibuya is destroyed, even more so when Sukuna unleashes his Domain Expansion.

The part of Shibuya that Sukuna destroys while fighting Mahoraga is where Toge is last seen. He loses his left arm during Sukuna’s attack on Shibuya. Judging by the scale of Sukuna’s destruction, it’s already a miracle that Toge survived at all as countless civilians died by the attack.

Toge’s role has significantly lessened since the Shibuya Incident Arc, only for him to briefly appear once or twice in the manga after that. It’s unclear why his arm cannot be regenerated using Reverse Cursed Technique, but it’s likely because the damage is done by Sukuna’s domain. After all, if Reverse Cursed Technique is effective, Yuta would’ve been the first one to heal his friend.

Though Toge Inumaki no longer has a major role in the story, him losing his arm serves as a significant plot point in Jujutsu Kaisen. When Yuta appears at the end of the Shibuya Incident Arc, he holds Yuji responsible for Toge’s condition and vows to kill him. What happens next, viewers will get to see in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 3.
