Warning: Contains spoilers for Chapter #238 of Jujutsu Kaisen. Latest chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen hinting that the series could finally give Yuji a much-needed boost of power to help him fight the devious King of Curses. This power-up has been a long time coming and could finally see Yuji take the spotlight once again and re-establish himself as the main protagonist of the series.
After Gojo’s shocking defeat and death at Shinjuku, the war against Sukuna seemed to be one-sided, with even the battle with Kashimo a near stalemate. Sensing this, many mages in waiting joined the fight, including Hakari, Higuruma, and Yuji. Although the battle seems difficult, Yuji’s new mysterious power may turn the tide in the witches’ favor.
In Chapter #238, Yuji can be spotted with a pair of mysterious blade-like objects protruding from his forearms which he appears to be clasping as he descends into Sukuna with Higuruma. While it’s unclear exactly what these are, the most likely explanation is a Cursed Tool similar to the one Yuta used in Chapter #178. Yuji also appears to have grown sharp claws like Sukuna, which has led to speculation that he may have finally awakened Sukuna’s Cursed Technique, one of his own, or even will eat Sukuna’s last missing finger.
That said, despite the similarities, it seems unlikely that Yuji would be able to perform Sukuna’s Cursed Technique after the latter switched vessels. While it is possible that Sukuna’s last finger (believed to be in Gojo’s possession) could play a role in this process, it would be pointless for Yuji to confront a fully regenerated Sukuna. Completely with the strength of just one finger without also enhancing one’s own abilities.
For that matter, another popular belief among fans is that Yuji may have awakened his own Cursed Technique. However, such a development would be epic and so far no other characters have mentioned it or any kind of build-up to it which seems odd to say the least, though Upcoming chapters may provide some explanation about that. problem.
However, regardless of the nature of this power-up, Jujutsu Kaisen ultimately set the stage for Yuji’s fateful battle against Sukuna and also gave him the opportunity to return to center stage once again with as the main character. Although Sukuna seems unbeatable at the moment, Jujutsu Kaisen The battle in Shinjuku is nearing its climax and only time will tell if Yuji’s strength will make him the last man standing.
