Playful Cloud is a three-section staff connection by three rings in between the joins of the weapon. Each staff is decorated with a flame-like pattern near the ends by the metal which connects to the chains.
It is the only special grade cursed tool that is not imbued with a cursed technique. Instead, Playful Cloud's strength relies on the raw power of its user. Playful Cloud has been best utilized by those with incredible physical abilities rather than those with high levels of cursed energy.
Playful Cloud amplifies the user's strength with its cursed energy, allowing even those with little to no cursed energy to overpower special grade cursed spirits.
First shown in possession by Suguru Geto during his attack on Jujutsu high, Playful Cloud is an extremely powerful weapon that allowed the curse user to fight on equal terms against an enraged Yuta Okkotsu. After a heated clash between the two, Suguru lost possession of Playful Cloud after being struck by Yuta. After his failed attack, Playful Cloud came into possession by Tokyo Jujutsu High.
Maki Zenin & Megumi Fushiguro
Playful Cloud's powerful abilities were displayed again when Maki Zenin, a girl with little cursed energy, was able to wield it to contend with a special grade cursed spirit. When his weak points were struck by a blow from Playful Cloud, Hanami was knocked away with great force.
Maki and Megumi were able to trade cursed tools mid-battle to confuse Hanami, leaving him open to attack from Playful Cloud. Even Megumi, who possesses only average physical strength, was able to harm Hanami using the staff. Megumi did admit however that he's uncomfortable wielding a three sections staff. Playful Cloud equalizing power allowed Maki to contend with Hanami despite being injured although she was eventually overpowered.
The special grade cursed tool also helped Maki better contend with Dagon during their fighting in Shibuya. In the middle of this battle, Toji Fushiguro appeared and took Playful Cloud from Maki.
As a special grade cursed tool, Playful Cloud possesses a considerable amount of cursed energy. This makes it compatible with Aoi's cursed technique, allowing him to switch it out with any desired target. After Megumi left Playful Cloud in the river, Aoi was able to summon it to his side by switching it out with Yuji. With a powerful blow infused with his own cursed energy, Aoi was able to smash Hanami's weak points and nearly defeated the cursed spirit.
Enhanced by Toji's innate physical prowess, the pure power provided by Playful Cloud devastated Dagon. In Toji's hands, Playful Cloud ripped through swarms of the special grade curse's shikigami. It even destroyed Dagon's water shield in a single hit, a technique that withstood blows from Naobito, Nanami, and Maki at the same time.
By rubbing the edges of Playful Cloud together, Toji sharpened the three-section-staff into a spearing weapon. By stacking the chained ends of the weapon together, Toji even vaulted himself high into the air and stabbed Dagon through the head in one motion. While delivering the finishing blows, Toji snapped the chain on Playful cloud and violently murdered Dagon. This ultimately broke all the links between the weapon, leaving Toji with a single sharpened staff.
