(2022) Power of Nanami Kento in Jujutsu Kaisen | Updated

This article is updated based on new theories and knowledge. 

In Jujutsu Kaisen,  the world is full of cursed spirits who are born from the accumulated negative emotions of the people. It is the job of the Jujutsu Sorcerer to defeat those spirits and restore peace in the world. The sorcerers use Cursed Techniques, which is a manipulation of Cursed Energy into a certain pattern.

The story revolves around Yuji Itadori, who is plunged into the world of sorcerers and curses after he comes into contact with a cursed object. In order to save Megumi Fushiguro, he ate that cursed object that belonged to the Demon God Ryomen Sukuna and gained his powers.

Who is Nanami Kento?

Nanami was a former office worker and was always dressed in a business suit. He was a graduate of Jujutsu High and describes sorcerers to be idiots, and that working in an office was idiotic too, so he decided to pick the lesser of the two evils.

With a ranking of Grade 1 Sorcerer, it is pretty obvious that Nanami was among the strongest Jujutsu Sorcerers. A special grade cursed spirit, Mahito considers him to be on a whole different level than other Jujutsu Sorcerers. Though not as strong as Satoru, Nanami was still a threat, according to Mahito.

Power of Nanami Kento in Jujutsu Kaisen- Cursed Power and Abilities

The latest episode of the anime has only shown a glimpse of Nanami’s powers. However, in this post, we will discuss everything we need to know about his cursed powers and techniques.

  • Swordsmanship –

Nanami used a blunt sword for combat and could defeat the curses very proficiently. When he combined his sword with his Cursed Technique, he can cut through anything.

He wields his blade with balanced striking and extreme precision. He exposed his target’s weak point with his cursed techniques and cut through that. However, against stronger cursed spirits, he cuts them down by creating multiple weak points until he destroys them. He could also use his sword precision to avoid his enemies’ attacks.


  • Black Flash –

It is a technique that immensely multiplies the user’s physical powers. It allows the user to create distortion in space when they apply cursed energy within 0.00001 seconds of a physical hit.

When this technique is applied, the user’s curse energy changes to black color. This technique requires such incredible concentration that no Jujutsu Sorcerer can use it at will, not even Satoru. Nanami’s record was using this technique 4 times in a row, and he claimed that he just got lucky.


  • Binding Vows –

Overtime is Nanami’s signature Binding Vow with himself. He could limit a certain amount of cursed energy where he utilizes during the time he is working for Jujutsu High. Once his normal shift ended and overtime hours began, his cursed energy increased tremendously.

Another binding vow he made with himself is Showing One’s Cards. It is one of the most common Binding Vows. By revealing how their cursed technique works, the user can maximize the output of cursed energy in their next attack.

Nanami Kento Cursed Techniques-

  • Ratio Technique –

This was Nanami’s Innate Cursed Technique that divides his target with ten lines and forcibly creates weak spots at the ratio point of seven to three. Nanami could choose which part to divide, including his target’s head, torso, arms, and legs. He could also apply this technique to non-living objects.


  • Collapse –

This was literally one of Nanami’s coolest techniques. Collapse is an Expanded Cursed Technique that makes a very large weak point in Nanami’s surrounding environment and allows him to destroy it with just a single blow. In the manga, Nanami first used this technique after unleashing both his Binding Vows to trap Mahito in the underground tunnel by destroying it.


Nanami Kento Future Role-

He will badly crush him with the help of Todo, and the two of them will become the reason for Mahito’s exorcism. In contrast, Jujutsu Kaisen’s plot is so much incredible.
