Warning! Contains reveal for Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222!
With Jujutsu Kaisenclimactic battle between joyous And tribe Fast forward, the series has given its ultimate villain a major upgrade. Gege Akutami’s manga has identified Sukuna as one of its most dangerous entities, which makes this upgrade even more terrifying. In many ways, however, this is inevitable as it is foretold from the very first chapter of the series.
Chapter 222, translated by John Wery, shows how the different characters prepare for the final clash between Gojo and Sukuna. To give Sukuna as much power as possible, Uraume traced most of the Cursed King’s remaining fingers. Each of these fingers contains a portion of Sukuna’s power and is what allows him to possess Yuji at the beginning of the manga. Uraume was able to find all but one of the fingers, which Sukuna speculated meant that Gojo was holding the last one. However, he is fortunately able to make up for this by eating the mummy of his original body that Kenjaku found in Chapter 220.
Sukuna gains strength ahead of Jujutsu Kaisen’s climactic clash
This is a disgusting power, but it makes perfect sense in the context of the rest of the series. Prior to the parts of the Shibuya Incident and the Game of Destruction, one of the main goals of the series was for Yuji to eat all of Sukuna’s fingers, which were causing havoc throughout Japan. Each of these fingers makes Sukuna stronger and thus harder for Yuji to contain, but he can do it anyway. However, now that Sukuna is in Megumi’s body, however, each new finger and body part is eaten making Sukuna a more overwhelming force that Megumi cannot overcome. This would make him an even more insurmountable threat to Gojo.
Of course, given Gojo’s absurd strength and abilities, this still wasn’t enough for Sukuna to defeat him. The recent Gojo with Jujutsu Kaisen has returned from being released from the prison kingdom, but based on the brief clash he had with Sukuna and Kenjaku after his return, he still seems strong. stronger than ever. Gojo’s Infinite Ability is nearly insurmountable, and even at his peak, Sukuna would have a hard time defeating him. Therefore, to make the final battle interesting, Sukuna needs to get some major upgrades despite his strength.
Sukuna’s new upgrade can help him defeat Gojo
In many ways, Jujutsu Kaisen’s story since Sukuna assumed his terrifying new form has been devoted to raising Sukuna’s powers to the right level to allow him to compete with Gojo. Worryingly for the main characters, this could be a sign that Sukuna will win the upcoming battle against Gojo, which will force the other much weaker heroes to take him down. Whoever wins in the end tribe however, his latest upgrade will be much harder since he now has the ability Jujutsu Kaisenmost powerful figure.
