The story of Jujutsu Kaisen is set in a world full of curses, cursed spirits, cursed powers, and techniques. However, most of the population is unaware of this, while the Jujutsu Sorcerers protect them in secret by exorcising the cursed spirits. The series starts with Yuji Itadori, a normal high school student, who is dragged into that world after eating a cursed object (a preserved finger) that belongs to the King of Curses Ryomen Sukuna and gained his powers by becoming his vessel.
Now, Yuji and the other Jujutsu Sorcerers are looking for the remaining fingers of Sukuna and exorcising the cursed spirits that cross their paths. It is necessary considering that the cursed spirits’ main objective is to eradicate all humanity by reviving Sukuna using all his 20 fingers.
What are Cursed Spirits?
They are a race of spiritual beings born from the cursed energy that are actually people’s negative emotions congregated together. Cursed Spirits are corrupt spirits that haunt humanity and vary in all kinds of shapes and sizes, and have pretty creepy looks. They believe that they are the true manifestation of life, and humans are fake beings that should not exist.
As the series continues, the manga has introduced us to many cursed spirits and their varying powers. Let us discuss the ranking of the strongest Cursed Spirits in the series.

He is a special grade Cursed Womb: Death Painting whose aim was to help curses take over Japan. His innate cursed techniques comprised of Rot Technique and Maximum Decay.

He was brought to life by Mahito with the same goal of helping curses to take over Japan. He possessed a high amount of Cursed Energy which helped him to enhance his innate cursed techniques. He had the same techniques as his younger brother namely: Rot Technique and Maximum Decay. However, he possessed an additional innate technique known as Maximum Wing King which was one of his special moves in battles. It provided him with great mobility and allowed him to attack with lines of blood from a long-range. This puts him in ninth place in this rankings.
Choso is another one of the antagonists in this series completing the trio of brothers. He was also a Special Grade Cursed Womb: Death Painting who was revived by Mahito. Choso is far ahead in terms of power than these two younger brothers. His innate cursed technique is Blood Manipulation which allowed him to manipulate his own blood and produce a variety of attacks. His Blood Manipulation attacks include: Slicing Exorcism, Convergence, Piercing Blood, Supernova, Blood Edge, Flowing Red Scale, and Blood Meteorite. Thus, with a vast array of attacks, he comes ahead of his brothers in eighth place in the list.
Tamamo-no-Mae is a Vengeful Cursed Spirit and one of the sixteen special grade cursed spirits. It was controlled and used by Geto’s Cursed Spirit Manipulation Technique. It proved its might in battle against Yuta as he was lucky to escape with his life. Combined with Maximum Uzumaki, it was able to land a devastating blow.

Mahito is one of the primary antagonists of the series who is aligned with Geto. He aims to eradicate all of humanity and replace everyone with Cursed Spirits.

His innate cursed technique includes Idle Transfiguration which allows him to use the following techniques: Soul Multiplicity, Body Repel, Polymorphic Soul Isomer, and Instant Spirit Body of Distorted Killing.

His barrier techniques include Coffin of the Iron Mountain and Domain Amplification. Thus, with a diverse set of attacks, this fiery cursed spirit manages to come in third place in the rankings.
2. Rika Orimoto-
Rika is a character in the prequel series of Jujutsu Kaisen. She was cursed by Yuta and it transformed her into a powerful Special Grade Vengeful Cursed Spirit. As a result, Rika’s power was unmatched. She was also considered a grave danger by the higher-ups. After full manifestation, she could use both physical attacks as well as jujutsu. She had a special ability whereby she could summon a megaphone of the Inumaki Family. It allowed Yuta to speak into it and emulate a cursed speech user. She has immeasurable cursed energy and she can take the shape of any cursed technique. Thus, the second place in this list belongs to none other than Rika.
The King of Curses Sukuna is unarguably the strongest cursed spirit in the series. Although born a human, he is perceived as a demon among legends. He was a Jujutsu Sorcerer 1,000 years ago and is the main antagonist of the series. He is now a reincarnated cursed spirit living inside Yuji’s body. The series has hinted that no Sorcerer, except Satoru, can rival his power. His Domain Expansion, Malevolent Shrine, allows him to create a Buddhist Shrine decorated with skulls.

Life took a sudden turn for me when I finally decided to watch Kimi no nawa & Clannad. While both of them made me cry and introduced me to this vast world of anime. The Anime and Manga world is an escape for me from this complicated real world and serves as a relief. Being a content writer for OtakusNotes still feels like a dream and has been one of the best things to happen to me this year. It has been a productive distraction for me and I am loving every moment of it.
