Jujutsu Kaisen Wiki

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 Tokyo Jujutsu High and also a descendant of the Zenin family.

Appearance

Megumi is a tall, dark-haired boy with light green eyes (depicted as a dark blue in the anime adaption), and spiky dark blue hair. He wears the standard Jujutsu Tech uniform which consists of a long-sleeved over-shirt with a high collar (featuring a golden button with a swirl that all Jujutsu Tech uniforms have), matching trousers and ankle high boots.

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. On the contrary, 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 that doesn't like to talk about his past, as shown when Nobara complains that Megumi hardly tells them anything about himself.[3]

Abilities and Powers

Megumi contending with a Finger Bearer.

Overall Skill Level: Megumi entered Jujutsu High as a Grade 2 sorcerer and is considered to have high potential by Noritoshi Kamo, Mai Zenin, Satoru Gojo 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, as he is able to use his physical attacks in combination with his shikigami to entrap his opponent.

According to Satoru, Megumi has equal or even more potential and skill than Yuji and later implies that Megumi could even be on par with Gojo himself someday. He can contend with and even defeat special grade cursed spirits, and he and his friends were recommended by Mei Mei and Todo to be Grade 1 sorcerers.

Enhanced Strength: While not as strong as Yuji, Megumi has been shown to possess a high level of physical proficiency, and when he was in junior high, he beat up half the delinquents in the area.[4]

Enhanced Speed: Although not as naturally fast as Yuji and Maki, he has been shown being able to follow their moves and fight alongside them effectively.

Megumi's durability.

Enhanced Durability: Fushiguro has a large amount of durability. He has been shown to take hits from Sukuna at three fingers and from Aoi Todo and survive. He has survived a blow from a Finger Bearer and later won against it.

Enhanced Endurance: Fushiguro has unnatural endurance. He is able to constantly use Domain Expansion despite it pushing him to his limit. He was able to engage in a Domain tug-of-war with Dagon for an extended period of time, and continue fighting with Toji after that, even taking a stab wound and continue fighting and still be able to summon Mahoraga.

Megumi's superb reflexes.

Enhanced Reflexes: Fushiguro has considerably better reflexes than others. He was able to react to Awasaka's attacks, dodge Noritoshi Kamo's arrows and even managed to react to Toji's attacks despite not being able to see him.

Megumi and Maki using cursed tools.

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. He often used a jet-black sword, which he was quite skilled with, until it shattered.[5]

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 Jiro Awasaka.

Jujutsu

Cursed Energy Manipulation
Immense Cursed Energy: Megumi Fushiguro was able to summon Divine Dog: Totality, Nue, Toad, Rabbit Escape twice in a row, and Max elephant, which consumes a large amount of cursed energy. He was also able to activate domain expansion (another technique with high cursed energy consumption), showing his excellent control in cursed energy within one hour during the Shibuya Incident. He was even able to summon Mahoraga after using Domain Expansion.
Inherited Technique
Megumi exorcises the Finger Bearer (Anime).png Ten Shadows Technique (十種影法術 Tokusa no Kage Bōjutsu?) is a technique that originated from the 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?)[6]: Fushiguro summons two black and white shikigami dogs that chase and devour curses.[7] Later, after the White Divine Dog was destroyed by Finger Bearer, its abilities and cursed energy were inherited by Divine Dog: Totality. Divine Dogs.gif
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 (Anime).png
Nue ( Nue?)[8]: An owl-like shikigami that can fly. Strong enough to carry a human, its offensive abilities are mostly dive attacks from the sky, but it has also been shown to use lightning. Megumi summons Nue.gif
Great Serpent (大蛇 Orochi?)[9]: 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. Great Serpent.gif
Toad (蝦蟇 Gama?)[10]: Multiple large toads, using their tongue to pin opponents and hold them down.[11] Megumi also used a toad to rescue Nobara Kugisaki. Megumi's Toad rescues Nobara (Anime).png
The Well's Unknown Abyss (不知井底 Seiteishirazu?)[12]: using a combination of two shikigami: Toad and Nue, the toads gain wings and the ability to fly. Bottomless Well (Anime).png
Max Elephant (満象 Banshō?): An elephant shikigami that releases a large amount of water from its trunk. Megumi can only use its base form and without any other shikigami activated since it consumes a lot of cursed energy. Max Elephant (Anime).gif
Rabbit Escape (脱兎 Datto?): A large number of rabbit shikigami that distract the enemy so that the user can escape. Rabbit Escape.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. So far, not a single user of the Technique has been able to exorcise Mahoraga. Eight-Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga.png
Barrier Techniques
Fushiguro's Chimera Shadow Garden (Anime).gif Chimera Shadow Garden (嵌合暗翳庭 Kangō An'eitei?): Megumi's Domain Expansion floods the area 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. When the domain is deployed, Megumi is capable of hiding within an enemy's shadow and attack from their blind spot. Currently, Megumi's Domain is incomplete and can cause physical backlash

Equipment

Conventional Weaponry

Megumi standing off with Noritoshi (Anime).png Megumi used a pair of wooden tonfa during his fight against Noritoshi Kamo.[13] He is able to skillfully use them to deflect cursed energy imbued arrows of his enemy. He is also able to imbue his tonfas with his cursed energy in order to increase their strength and durability. However, during the confrontation both of them are destroyed.
Cursed Tools
Megumi's black sword (Anime).png Megumi's primary cursed tool was a sword with a jet-black blade. Like his other weapons, he mainly keeps this cursed tool within his own shadow thanks to his inherited technique. As mentioned by Hanami, this weapon is stronger than Kasumi's katana in terms of cutting power as it is seen that he is able to damage the respective cursed spirit. He put it to use by exorcising the curse of Yashohachi bridge, but it was subsequently destroyed in the fight against an awakened Finger Bearer
Megumi hits Hanami with Playful Cloud (Anime).png Playful Cloud (游雲 Yū-un?) is a special grade cursed tool that embodies pure and solid power, which he briefly gained from Maki Zenin during their confrontation against unregistered special grade cursed spirit Hanami. Despite being able to successfully land a hit against the cursed spirit, he does not feel comfortable while holding this three-sectioned weapon. After his strike, they swap the weapons again.
