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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
