Megumi Fushiguro ( (ふし) (ぐろ) (めぐみ) Fushiguro Megumi?) is the deuteragonist of the series. He is a first-year student at the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College, 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 color, dark trousers and shoes.

Personality

While outwardly stoic and calculating, Megumi wishes to help protect people he sees as good or kind. He belives that the world is unfair and that a Shaman 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 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 saving.

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

Abilities

Megumi entered the college as a Second Grade Shaman. He is considered to have high potential by Noritoshi Kamo, Mai Zenin, and even Sukuna. Sukuna 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.

Physical Power

Although 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

Megumi's technique makes it difficult for him to wield weapons at the same time, as his curse forms need both hands. He has started to train with polearms under Maki Zenin's training. He also once used tonfa to confront Noritoshi Kamo.

Cursed Power and Technique

Cursed Technique: Megumi's Curse Form is called Shadow Technique of Ten Types ( () (くさの) (かげ) (ぼう) (じゅつ) Tokusa no Kagebōjutsu?), a curse form originated from Zenin Family, about using shadows to create Shikigami, and processing ten at once. He can create various advanced Shikigami, and uses the shadow to contain objects, as well.

  • Jade Hounds ( (ぎょく) (けん) Gyokuken?)[1]: Fushiguro created 2 black and white Shikigami dogs that chase and devour curses. [2] Later, after Jade Hound: White was destroyed by Sukuna, its abilities and curse power was inherited by Jade Hound: Chaos.
  • Chimera ( (ぬえ) Nue?)[3]: An owl-like Shikigami that can fly. Strong enough to carry a human, its offensive abilities are mostly dive attacks from the sky.
  • Monster Serpent (大蛇 (オロチ) Orochi?)[4]: 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.
  • Toad ( () () Gama?)[5]: Multiple large toads, using their tongue to pin opponents and hold them down.[6]Megumi also used a toad to rescue Nobara Kugisaki.
    • Bottomless Well ( (せい) (てい) () (らず) Seiteishirazu?)[7]: using a combination of 2 Shikigami: Toad and Chimera, the toads gain wings and the ability to fly.
  • Banshou ( (ばん) (しょう) 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.
  • Escape Rabbit ( (だっ) () Datto?): A large amount of rabbit Shikigami that distract the enemy, so that the user can escape from an enemy.

Shaman Techniques: These technique are ones that any shaman is capable of using.

  • Domain Expansion: A technique where cursed energy is used to construct a three-dimensional enclosed space or pocket dimension covering the surrounding area. Currently, Megumi's technique is incomplete.
    • Chimera Shadow Garden: The area is flooded with a large amount of fluid shadow.
