Jujutsu Kaisen Ancient Sorcerers

The ancient sorcerers in Jujutsu Kaisen possess some formidable powers far surpassing modern Jujutsu – so here are the ten strongest of them.

The Jujutsu world has been around for a long, long time, bearing witness to the rise and fall of many sorcerers. While the modern era has only a select few capable sorcerers, they were pretty common in ancient times. Many sorcerers possessed unbelievable powers.

Jujutsu sorcerers are rare, and powerful ones are even rarer these days. Since the Heian era, known to be the golden age of Jujutsu sorcery, the overall powers of curses have only declined over the centuries. The balance of power finally changed with Satoru Gojo’s birth.

While Jujutsu Kaisen introduced Sukuna and the ancient curse user Kenjaku quite early in the story, a lot of the ancient sorcerers made their debut in the Culling Game Arc. The series has confirmed its third anime season, which will cover this arc from the manga. Here’s a list of the ten strongest ancient sorcerers in Jujutsu Kaisen.

10. Iori Hazenoki

Innate Technique: Explosive Flesh

Jujutsu Kaisen ancient sorcerer Iori Hazenoki

Iori Hazenoki is one of the incarnated ancient sorcerers introduced in the Culling Game Arc of Jujutsu Kaisen. As someone who can produce positive energy, Iori has a thorough understanding of how to manipulate his own cursed energy. He can use his powerful innate technique indefinitely without tiring or depleting his cursed vitality.

Explosive Flesh allows him to detonate his own body parts and use them as bombs. He then uses Reverse Cursed Technique to replace those parts and continues attacking his targets. He can use such a complex technique constantly throughout the course of battle.

9. Reggie Star

Innate Technique: Contractual Re-Creation

Reggie Star is also one of the incarnated ancient sorcerers introduced in the Culling Game Arc of Jujutsu Kaisen. He triggers his innate technique by burning a contract with cursed energy and re-creating whatever is written on it into existence.

He can then command those re-created items like Shikigami; the only difference is that they would disappear after carrying out their tasks. His immense cursed energy allows him to activate his technique constantly without exhausting himself.

8. Takako Uro

Innate Technique: Sky Manipulation

Jujutsu Kaisen Takako Uro

Takako Uro is one of the incarnated ancient sorcerers from a thousand years ago. During that time, she was the captain of the Sun, Moon, and Stars Squad, a group of assassins affiliated with the Fujiwara Family. Using her innate technique, she can control the sky like a tangible object.

She triggers her cursed technique, Thin Ice Breaker, by hitting the surface of the sky instead of hitting her opponent directly. The surface then shatters like thin ice, injuring her opponent. She can also use Domain Expansion. The series featured Takako, Yuta, and Ryu using Domain Expansion together, but they canceled each other out.

7. Ryu Ishigori

Innate Technique: Cursed Energy Discharge

Jujutsu Kaisen Ryu Ishigori

Ryu Ishigori is one of the incarnated ancient sorcerers from four hundred years ago. High amounts of raw cursed energy fuel his output, and he has large reserves of it. He can use domain expansion, which requires an enormous amount of cursed energy at once.

Even after casting his domain, Ryu had plenty of cursed energy to use high-level techniques several times. His innate technique allows him to fire directed blasts of cursed energy from his cannon-shaped pompadour. He is the only sorcerer who can continue to release the same amount of power whether or not his cursed technique is used.

6. Yorozu

Innate Technique: Construction

Jujutsu Kaisen Yorozu

Yorozu is one of the incarnated ancient sorcerers from the Heian Era. During that time, she was a jujutsu sorcerer from Aizu, acknowledged by the Fujiwara clan. She was incarnated in Tsumiki Fushiguro’s body. Using her innate technique, Yorozu can re-create any substance from nothing, depending on her familiarity with it.

She can create Insect Wings, Liquid Metal, Insect Armor, and so on. She can also use Domain Expansion, Threefold Affliction, which is mostly a blank space with several oversized, organic objects floating within it.

5. Hajime Kashimo

Innate Technique: Mythical Beast Amber

One of the ancient sorcerers in Jujutsu Kaisen

Hajim Kashimo was among the strongest sorcerers around 400 years ago. During the Culling Game Arc of Jujutsu Kaisen, he is one of the ancient sorcerers who reincarnated in a vessel prepared by Kenjaku. His cursed energy has the attributes of an electric current; therefore, his body is constantly in a state of electrification.

This makes Hajime’s cursed energy-reinforced physical assaults impossible to resist, as his hits stun the opponent upon impact. His innate technique reconstructs flesh to manifest phenomena that he converts from cursed energy. However, he can only use this technique once, as his body far surpasses the human realm and destroys him.

4. Angel

Innate Technique: Technique Extinguishment

Angel is an ancient sorcerer from the Heian Era who has been incarnated in the Culling Game Arc of Jujutsu Kaisen. Unlike the other incarnated sorcerers, Angel exists symbiotically with her vessel, Hana Kurusu. Angel is the only character with the ability to nullify other techniques. Her innate ability can negate cursed techniques, barriers, seals, and cursed objects, including special grades like the Prison Realm. 

Jacob’s Ladder is an extension of her innate technique through which she conjures a four-winged trumpet and creates an immense circle of light in the sky. By sounding the trumpet made of light, a pillar of light descends from the middle of the circle to engulf whatever is below. Hence, any curse will be extinguished under the light of Jacob’s Ladder.

3. Uraume

Innate Technique: Ice Formation

Jujutsu Kaisen Uraume

Uraume is a curse user from the Heian era and Sukuna’s subordinate. Their innate technique allows them to create and manipulate ice, ranging from small to large quantities, depending on the desired purpose. Using Frost Calm, an extension of their innate technique, Uraume can channel a cloud of freezing mist from their mouth and blow it towards their opponent.

Additionally, Ice Fall allows them to conjure a large amount of spiked ice. They can control that ice to float telekinetically through the air like shards. Uraume is also adept at using Reverse Cursed Technique with ease as they can manipulate their cursed energy into positive energy.

2. Kenjaku

Innate Technique: Unknown

Kenjaku, the brain of the operation

Kenjaku is one of the primary antagonists of the series and an ancient curse user from over a thousand years ago. Although the name of his innate technique remains unknown, it allows him to swap bodies with another person, even if they’re dead. By swapping, he can gain access to his vessel’s memories and abilities.

So far, Kenjaku has possessed countless bodies and has an unknown number of powerful cursed techniques at his disposal. Using Geto’s body, he acquired Cursed Spirit Manipulation. Likewise, he can also use Kaori Itadori’s technique, Antigravity System, and the inherited technique of the Kamo Clan, Blood Manipulation. On top of that, Kenjaku has a power Domain Expansion and womb Profusion.

1. Ryomen Sukuna

Innate Technique: Unknown

Like Kenjaku, Sukuna is one of the primary antagonists of Jujutsu Kaisen and an ancient sorcerer crowned with the title of Ryomen Sukuna. His real name remains unknown, but he is the strongest sorcerer in history.

His innate technique also remains unknown, but it grants him several extended techniques such as Dismantle, Clave, Spiderweb, and even Fire. Sukuna is without equal, even to this day. Hence, he can use just about any complex technique, including Reverse Cursed Technique and Domain Expansion.
