Choso ( (ちょう) (そう) Chōsō?) is a supporting antagonist and later an ally of Yuji Itadori in the Jujutsu Kaisen series. He and his two brothers, Kechizu and Eso are Cursed Womb: Death Paintings who have sided with Pseudo Geto's group.

Appearance

Choso is a man with black wild hair that some tied in two ponytails, thin eyebrows, and a black rectangle covering the bridge of his nose that sometimes bleeds.

Choso wears light colored long sleeved shirt and light colored baggy pants, black scarf, two black sashes that cover his body in a X pattern, and a black sash around his waist.

Personality

Choso bears strong attachments to his brothers and is very overprotective of them. At first, he sided with Pseudo Geto's group in Shibuya because he want to avenge the death of his younger brothers, Kechizu and Eso. However, after receiving a vision during his battle with Itadori, Choso was eventually convinced that Sukuna's vessel was actually one of his younger brothers. He then became furious at Mahito and the other cursed spirits for manipulating him into harming Itadori.[1]

Abilities and Powers

Overall Skill: Choso is a special grade Death Painting. This is due to the fact that he not only has massive amounts of cursed energy, but also an extremely powerful and well-balanced cursed technique. He has enough skill and experience with his technique to create original techniques and modify existing ones. Despite being an inexperienced fighter, Choso has contended and won against Yuji Itadori and Naoya Zenin, two powerful and experienced fighters, further solidifying his place as an extremely powerful curse. He is the strongest Death Painting, even among the special grades. He is, however, arguably the weakest member of Pseudo Geto's group.

Enhanced Strength: Choso has great amounts of physical strength to go with his cursed energy. This is further enhanced by his Flowing Red Scale. He greatly injured Yuji during their fight and hit him hard enough to crack walls numerous times. With blood-hardened fists, Choso hit Yuji hard enough to make a dent in the latter's shoulder and even incapacitate him.

Enhanced Reflexes: Choso has immensely fast reflexes. He was able to go back and forth with Yuji during their fight, dodge some of the student's blows and sometimes, counter too fast for the student to handle. Choso's reflexes are so good that he was able to react to Naoya's speed even when caught off-guard. Even when Naoya increased his speed, he was able to adapt and react using his Flowing Red Scale: Stack.

Enhanced Durability: Choso has great durability, able to continuously take hits and continue fighting. Even Naoya commented that Choso was unnaturally tough. He not only has a sturdy body but great endurance. He continued taking heavy hits from Yuji during their fight and eventually lasted to the point of victory. This might be due to his nature as a Death Painting. It is possible that Choso is more durable than Jogo. However, he is far behind Hanami in terms of durability.

Choso matching Yuji blow for blow

Enhanced Speed: Choso has great speed, able to even catch Naoya off-guard when the latter was overwhelmed by a tide of blood. He is fast enough to string extremely fast attacks together and match Yuji's rush of punches blow for blow.

Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Choso has exceptional martial arts skills, being his main form of combat. He used a variety of techniques when fighting with Yuji and Naoya, such as sweep kicks, punches, kicks, palm strikes, hand chops and many more. He repeatedly matched and overwhelmed Yuji Itadori during their fight using martial arts alone. As expected of his age, Choso has an extensive knowledge of martial arts techniques which he uses in his fights.

Poisonous Blood: After successfully wounding Uraume, Choso revealed that like his two younger brothers, his blood also possesses poisonous properties that can fatally injure even a powerful curse user.

Blood Connection: Choso has implied and later confirmed that he possesses the ability to "sense any transformations" that occurs to those he is related to by blood. This is seen when he was able to immediately detect the deaths of his younger siblings due to death being the final transformation of organisms. As shown with Yuji Itadori, this occurs when he experiences a vision right at the moment of his relatives' "death".

Blood Conversion: As one of the Cursed Womb: Death Paintings, Choso possess the unique constitution of being able to convert his cursed energy into blood, allowing him to create a nearly unlimited supply of blood for his Blood Manipulation Techniques. This effectively eliminates the technique's weakness of possibly killing its user due to blood loss and allows Choso to easily resupply himself with blood as long as he has cursed energy. This allowed Choso to overwhelm Naoya and eventually win during their fight by creating a tide of blood that obscured the latter's line of sight.

Jujutsu

Cursed Energy Manipulation
Immense Cursed Energy: Choso has large amounts of cursed energy which he constantly uses to power his cursed technique without exhausting himself in the slightest. The true size of his cursed energy was seen from the fact that he was able to create a massive tide of blood which completely obscured Naoya Zenin line of sight, and from the fact that he was able to use Supernova immediately after, he must not have been using his full cursed energy. His Piercing Blood is able to reach the speed of sound, not only due to cursed energy reinforcement, but due to his skillful control over his cursed energy and technique.
Inherited Technique

As stated by Choso, due to Noritoshi Kamo having mixed in his own blood into his mother while pregnant with him during his experiments on her, Choso's innate technique is in fact the inherited technique of the Kamo Family.
Slicing Exorcism (苅祓 Karibarai?): Choso releases a stream of blood that is capable of slicing through human bodies. Choso using Slicing Exorcism.png
Convergence (百斂 Byakuren?): A technique that compresses and condenses the blood to its limit. It is the key for using some of Blood Manipulation's more powerful techniques to their limit. Choso using Convergence.png
Piercing Blood (穿血 Senketsu?): Choso claps his hands together and fires a stream of blood from the tip of his fingers. As observed by Noritoshi Kamo, Choso's version of this technique is incredibly powerful with an immense amount of pressure focused into his shots, shown when he used it against Uraume. Choso can also use this technique to inject his poisonous blood into his opponents. Choso using Piercing Blood on Yuji.png
Supernova (超新星 Chōshinsei?): After using Convergence to create multiple small orbs of blood, Choso has the orbs shoot out in every direction like a buckshot. Choso using Supernova on Naoya.png
Blood Edge (血刃 Ketsujin?): Choso shapes and strengthens his blood's lethality by rotating it at a high speed. Blood Edge.png
Flowing Red Scale (赤鱗躍動 Sekirin Yakudō?): Choso manipulates the blood in his body, including the temperature, pulse rate, the number of red blood cells, and its composition, so that he can increase his body's speed and power. Two vertical lines appear over each of his eyes when this technique is activated. Choso's fury.png
Flowing Red Scale: Stack (赤鱗躍動・載 Sekirin Yakudō・Sai?): Choso intensifies Flowing Red Scale in order to increase his body's capabilities to an even higher degree than normally. He can even adapt this ability to perform certain functions like in his fight against Naoya when he focused it in his ocular muscles in order to react to Naoya's speed. When this is in use, the lines over his eyes and his nose gain three arrow-like markings on both sides. Flowing Red Scale Stack.png
Blood Meteorite (血星磊 Kesseiseki?): Choso hardens some of his blood and throws it at his target. Blood Meteorite.png

Trivia

  • According to Jujutsu Kaisen Official Fanbook[2]:
    • During the Shibuya Incident, despite not being interested in the plan, he was willing to cooperate. However, he had no reason to take lives after Gojo was sealed.
    • The blood of Choso’s younger brothers, Eso and Kechizu, has the same toxicity as his. However, since Yuji is Sukuna’s vessel, and he has resistance to poisons, he’s fine when exposed to their blood. This rule applies to Choso's blood too.
