Megumi Fushiguro ( (ふし) (ぐろ) (めぐみ) Fushiguro Megumi?) is the deuteragonist of the Jujutsu Kaisen series. He is a first-year student at the Jujutsu High and also a descendant of the Zenin Family.


Appearance

Megumi is a tall, dark-haired boy with light green eyes. He wears the standard uniform of Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College which consists of a long-sleeved shirt and a high collar of dark colour, dark trousers and shoes.

Personality

While outwardly stoic and calculating, Megumi wishes to help protect people he sees as good or kind. He believes that the world is unfair and that a Sorcerer is a tool to ensure kind people are given more chances to live. Claiming it to be his selfish and irrational desire, he does not see himself as a hero for doing this. This belief that good people deserve saving motivated him to save Yuji Itadori from immediate execution and refused to regret the choice even as Sukuna was about to kill him. The other side of his worldview is that he is quite callous when discussing the deaths of criminals and killers as he believes they are not worth saving.

He is also quite a secretive person, as shown when Nobara complains that Megumi hardly tells them anything about himself.[1]

Abilities and Powers

Overall Skill: Megumi entered the college as a Grade 2 Sorcerer. He is considered to have high potential by Noritoshi Kamo, Mai Zenin, and even Sukuna. The King of Curses notes that Megumi's willingness to use hand-to-hand combat makes him different from other Shikigami users. According to Satoru, Megumi has even more potential and skill than Yuji. He is able to use his physical attacks in combination with his Shikigami to entrap his opponent.

Enhanced Strength: While not as strong as Yuji, Megumi has been shown to possess a high level of physical proficiency. When he was in junior high, he beat up half the punks in the area.[2]

Weapon Mastery: Although Megumi's technique makes it difficult for him to wield weapons at the same time, as his shikigami need both hands to be summoned, he has started to train with polearms under Maki Zenin. He also once used tonfa to confront Noritoshi Kamo.[3]

Great Tactical Intellect: Megumi has showcased a high level of tactical thinking. He is capable of quickly spotting various weaknesses his opponents may have, being the person to recognize Hanami's branches as his weak spot. Megumi is also capable of determining Cursed Techniques his opponents may have, shown during the fight him and Yuji had against Awasaka.

Jujutsu

Inherited Technique
Megumi exorcises the Finger Bearer.png Ten Shadows Technique (十種影法術 Tokusa no Kagebōjutsu?) is a technique originated from Zenin Family, which uses shadows to create Shikigami, and is able to process ten at once. Megumi can use this technique to create various advanced Shikigami and store objects, as well as himself within shadows.
Divine Dogs (玉犬 Gyokuken?)[4]: Fushiguro created two black and white Shikigami dogs that chase and devour curses. [5] Later, after the White Divine Dog was destroyed by Finger Bearer, its abilities and Cursed Energy were inherited by Divine Dog: Totality. Fushiguro using Jade Hounds.png
Divine Dog: Totality (玉犬「渾」 Gyokuken: Kon?): is an improved version of the black Divine Dog Shikigami which inherited the power of the fallen white Divine Dog. It can be summoned by Megumi Fushiguro's Ten Shadows Technique and is powerful enough to contend with Special Grade Cursed Spirits. Divine Dog Totality.png
Nue ( Nue?)[6]: An owl-like Shikigami that can fly. Strong enough to carry a human, its offensive abilities are mostly dive attacks from the sky. Fushiguro using Chimera.png
Great Serpent (大蛇 Orochi?)[7]: A giant snake Shikigami which can be used as surprise attack coming out of the ground and binding the opponent. This shikigami was destroyed by Sukuna. Fushiguro attacking Sukuna with Monster Serpent.png
Toad (蝦蟇 Gama?)[8]: Multiple large toads, using their tongue to pin opponents and hold them down.[9] Megumi also used a toad to rescue Nobara Kugisaki. Megumi's frog saves Nobara.png
The Well's Unknown Abyss (不知井底 Seiteishirazu?)[10]: using a combination of two Shikigami: Toad and Nue, the toads gain wings and the ability to fly. Fushiguro using Toads Bottomless Well.png
Max Elephant (満象 Banshō?): An elephant Shikigami that is capable of releasing a large amount of water from its trunk. Megumi can only use its base form since it consumes a lot of Cursed Energy. Max Elephant.png
Rabbit Escape (脱兎 Datto?): A large amount of rabbit Shikigami that distract the enemy, so that the user can escape from an enemy. Rabbits.PNG
Eight-Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga (八握剣異戒神将魔虚羅 Yatsuka-no-Tsurugi Ikaishinshō Makora?): The most powerful Shikigami that may be summoned via Ten Shadows Technique.

Barrier Techniques
Fushiguro's Chimera Shadow Garden.png Chimera Shadow Garden (嵌合暗翳庭 Kangō An'eitei?): The area is flooded with a large amount of fluid shadow. Within this domain, Megumi is capable of summoning multiple shikigami and even creating a double of himself from the shadow.
