Warning: This article contains SPOILERS for Jujutsu Kaisen #237If taking down Satoru Gojo wasn’t shocking enough, Jujutsu Kaisen fans must now accept the possibility that Sukuna has now made the triumphant – and necessary – return of Megumi Fushiguro impossible, suggesting that the famous characters are dead for good.
While the latest chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen mainly focused on the fight between Sukuna and Hajime Kashimo, the finale revealed a surprising plot twist. Sukuna’s appearance has changed from her modified Megumi physical form to her original body. Previously, this form was only seen in flashbacks when Sukuna roamed Earth as himself, before he was defeated and sealed by the Jujutsu magical community. What’s more shocking than that scene is the implication it causes, namely that Sukuna has completely taken possession of Megumi’s body and permanently overwritten his soul.
Sukuna reveals her true self, sealing Megumi’s fate
For most of the series, fans have grown accustomed to the idea that whatever manifestation Sukuna will eventually manifest, it will somehow be through his possession of Yuji. Indeed, Yuji’s mental toughness proved more than enough to quell all of Sukuna’s attempts to gain full control of his body. However, Sukuna actually used her time in Yuji’s body to search for and locate another more useful and less stubborn vessel, that of Megumi. Indeed, while “cooperating” with Yuji has its own benefits, Megumi’s higher witchcraft aptitude and Ten Shadow Technique are a much better match for Sukuna’s powers.
When Sukuna possessed Megumi, fans understood the possibility of him regaining control of his body. Unlike Yuji, Megumi is more susceptible to mental torture, which Sukuna proves to be very good at. His use of Megumi’s Ten Shadows Technique to hurt Yorozu, the sorcerer who possessed the body of Megumi’s sister Tsumiki, was soul-crushing. However, there is always the hope that Megumi will somehow refuse full control of Sukuna, or mount a guerrilla campaign on a spiritual level to sabotage what she can of Sukuna’s power. Even Satoru Gojo surmised that since Sukuna still appeared in his modified Megumi form, he was not yet in complete control.
Megumi’s body now belongs to Sukuna
However, while that may have happened during their fight, Sukuna’s transformation into her original form against Hajime shows that Megumi has been broken and now has no chance of regaining control of her body. mine from Sukuna. Perhaps the ultimate breaking of Megumi’s will was seeing his Ten Shadow Jutsu kill the next person he cared about most after his sister: Satoru Gojo. Now Sukuna has unleashed his true, original form upon the world and consider it Jujutsu Kaisen has shown little hesitation in killing off even famous characters, so it’s highly unlikely that fans will see the return of Megumi Fushiguro.
