Cursed Technique Reversal: Red ( (じゅつ) (しき) (はん) (てん) (あか) Jutsushiki Hanten・Aka?) is the Cursed Technique Reversal of the Limitless, an extraordinarily powerful extension technique passed down in the Gojo Family.


The reverse Limitless technique is powered by positive reverse cursed energy as opposed to negative cursed energy. This reverses the effect of the strengthened Limitless, producing a strong repelling effect rather than an attracting one.

The technique manifests itself as a small, but extremely bright red orb on the tip of the user's finger, representing the very essence of convergence and divergence brought into reality. When released, the explosive output is massive, creating a gigantic shockwave that blows everything away without prejudice.[1][2] The overall cursed energy output from Red is more than twice that of the strengthened Limitless, Cursed Technique Lapse: Blue.[3]

Throughout its history, Red has been notoriously difficult for inheritors of the Limitless to use. This is mainly due to the fact that the ability to use a reverse cursed technique is extremely rare and complicated to achieve, unbias even to the Big Three Families.[4]


Satoru Gojo unleashes Red for the first time.

Satoru Gojo was considered a prodigy from birth, special even for a bearer of the Six Eyes. However, even he struggled to figure out how to use a reverse cursed technique while he was a second-year at Jujutsu High. He tried to unleash it on a whim while escorting the Star Plasma Vessel but it didn't work.[5]

Satoru was only able to unlock the ability to use a reverse cursed technique after surviving his near-death encounter with Toji Fushiguro. He discovered the core of cursed energy and learned to pour reverse cursed energy into his Limitless technique. This allowed him to successfully utilize red in his rematch with Toji, blasting him a great distance away with a powerful blastwave.[6]

The explosive output of Red producing a powerful blastwave.

Following this major event in Satoru's life, he mastered the Limitless and learned how to have a reverse cursed technique flowing through his body to keep him fresh at almost all times. With such precision over each aspect of the Limitless, Satoru can unleash Red at will without any repercussions to his stamina or cursed energy reserves.[7]

When Satoru got angry during the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons, he blasted a giant cursed spirit with Red and annihilated it in one shot.[8] Satoru displayed his ability to unleash Red casually by blasting Jogo with Red just to showcase the massive difference between their strength. He did so after divulging how the Limitless works, further increasing the power of the cursed technique reversal. The bright red blast dealt moderate damage to Jogo before Satoru capitalized with a flurry of additional moves.[9]
