A Cursed Corpse ( (じゅ) (がい) Jugai?) is a nonliving object that has been endowed with a curse, allowing it to gain self-control. They can appear naturally as hostile creatures, but more often used as dolls and puppets for sorcerers.


Cursed corpses are defined as inanimate objects possessed by a curse that is capable of standing on its own. These type of curses that appear naturally are hostile to humans.[1] Cursed corpses created by sorcerers have a core that acts as their heart, allowing them to act independently from their creator.


Masamichi Yaga, the foremost practitioner of puppet jujutsu is capable of using his cursed technique to create a number of cursed corpses. Each of which are capable of following a set of pre-determined commands.

He was also able to develop the Abrupt-Mutated Cursed Corpse: Panda, who was born sentient and possesses three cores. Each of Panda's cores possesses unique traits, allowing him to switch modes at will, making him the most complex cursed corpse to exist.[2]

Kokichi Muta, a sorcerer granted the ability to control cursed corpses over a wide range can utilize them as remote controlled proxy's for himself. Unlike Yaga's cursed corpses, Kokichi's puppets are operated directly through a cursed energy link and do not appear to possess cores.[3]
