One of the main protagonists of the series, Megumi Fushiguro is another first-year student at Tokyo Metropolitan Cursed Technical College from Jujutsu Kaisen. Along with Itadori Yuji, he’s on a hunt for killing the curses out there. The descendant of the Zenin family. you can’t expect less from Megumi.
That cold personality makes him somewhat charming. Hence, this figures why Megumi already has a huge audience that loves him.

Being one of the most stoic Anime characters, Megumi has continuously shown us how he doesn’t care about what others think. Megumi’s wish is to get rid of curses and he thinks that being a Jujutsu Sorcerer is selfish. When it comes to his ideology, Megumi thinks that the whole world is unfair. Moreover, being a Jujutsu Sorcerer, his job is to ensure the safety of people. Even though he helps a lot of people, he thinks that being a Jujutsu Sorcerer is somewhat selfish.
The most charming part of Megumi is the fact that he doesn’t consider himself the hero. Unlike our protagonist “Itadori Yuji,” he’s the exact opposite. Megumi is highly targeted. You just can’t make him stray away from his mission. Even if someone is dying and it’s not part of his mission, Megumi won’t feel bad leaving that guy alone. This was a scene in Anime along with Itadori. However, Itadori changed Megumi. After that specific incident, Megumi feels like helping the ones in need.
On the other hand, Megumi is pretty suspicious. He never tells anything about him. Even Nobara complained about how Megumi is hiding something. Well, fans love that about Megumi-Kun.
Even though he thought saving the bad guys is just out of the question, being with Itadori for a couple of days changed Megumi’s ideals. He decided to save Itadori while fighting Sakuna. Megumi didn’t run away!
Appearance-wise, Megumi is quite secretive. He looks like someone who’s always there, however, he’s never there. Hence, I’m talking vibes here. He’s taller than Itadori, coming up at 5″9. Moreover, with that dark spiky hair, Nobara thinks that he’s some kind of a playboy. Wearing that traditional Technical College outfit, Megumi makes people’s hearts flutter.
When we talk about Megumi’s physique, he’s lean, however, you can’t expect him to be any less either! In the Anime series, Megumi is always hiding something. According to Gojo, Megumi’s potential is greater than Itadori’s. That still doesn’t change the fact that even someone like Sakuna saw something similar in Megumi, and that’s why he’s showing a consistent interest in Megumi Fushiguro.
History (SPOILER ALERT)
When Megumi was just a kid, his parents died. That’s where Gojo stepped in. Seeing Megumi’s potential, he went on and supported Megumi and his stepsister. Even though the Zenin clan was pretty powerful, Gojo decided to invite and train Megumi into the Technical College.
At the start of the series, Megumi was on a hunt to collect the cursed object that was in the hand of Itadori Yuji’s friends in their school. Belonging from the Occult club, no one knew what this cursed object was. Megumi called the higher-ups, and they told him that he can’t come back if he doesn’t get the cursed object back. That’s where Megumi became pretty much dedicated to his work.
When Megumi encountered Itadori, he saw a weird attraction and thought that Itadori was attracting the curses. Hence, Megumi followed Itadori till they reached the hospital. That’s where he explained the scenario to Itadori, and upon finding out that Itadori didn’t have the cursed object, they both ran straight to the school.
Even though Megumi tried to stop Itadori from coming into the school, things started to get worse. There was a cursed spirit in the school that was on the brink of eating Itadori’s friends. Even though Megumi tried his best, he couldn’t mess with that overpowered spirit.
That’s where Itadori tried to fight the spirit. Having no talent for cursed energy, Itadori was instantly beaten. But that’s where he decided to save everyone by eating the cursed object, also known as the Sakuna’s finger. Hence, Sakuna decided to destroy the world right on his arrival, however, Itadori managed to control everything. That’s where Megumi decided that it was a must.
Megumi has always been that one secretive character. When he joined the Jujutsu college, he joined it as a Grade 2. This is enough to give us a glimpse of what sort of powers Megumi would be capable of. In the Anime series, he is considered to have more potential than anyone around. That includes the main character Itadori too!
Therefore, let’s talk about what sorts of abilities Megumi possesses.
Room for Potential: First thing’s first, Megumi is said to have unrivaled potentials. He surpasses Mai, Maki, Sakuna, Gojo, and practically anyone in the series. If this isn’t surprising, I don’t know what is. The use of Shikigami along with usual combat makes him even more capable. Even though Megumi fought and lost to Sakuna, he was still somehow managing to put up a fight.
Most of all, Megumi is hiding a trump card. Something that is worse than anything we’ve ever seen. Hence, it makes sense why Sakuna is vouching for Megumi.
Cursed Weapons: By using Shikigami and Hand To Hand Combat, Megumi can fight in the sleekest way possible. That’s exactly what makes him so unique. However, to use the weapons, he needs to engage both hands, and that’s the only con we see in Megumi. All in all, a decent competitor to any character in the series.
The unrivaled intellect: If Megumi is known, for one thing, it’s his intellect. The way he perceives the battle and his judgment on the whole situation makes him a pretty formidable opponent. Moreover, Megumi has a sharp eye. It allows him to watch weak spots and attack accordingly. He has been training under Maki Zenin. Hence, it makes him a pretty badass one. Hence, with a high intellect with a sharp mind, everyone should look out for Megumi while fighting him.
Ten Shadows: One of the most fearsome Zenin Clan’s techniques, Megumi was able to inherit this one. Well, it required countless hours of hard work and mental training to receive it. However, he can create 10 Shikigamis by using his shadows. By using these shadows, Megumi can do practically anything. Hiding in shadows to storing objects in them. The only limit is your imagination.
Nue Shikigami: One of his most handy Shikigami, Nue is a literally OWL that is strong enough to be used as an offense in a battle. Moreover, Nue has saved Megumi countless times. From fighting to Sakuna to any other special cursed battle, Megumi can use Nue in a pretty proficient way.
Toad Shikigami: The Toad Shikigami allows Megumi mostly for running away. Using Toad and Nue, he can run away from the battle. Moreover, Toad saved Nobara from a plethora of cursed spirits in the storyline.
Divine Dogs Shikigami: Black and White dogs are probably the most popular ability of Megumi. While both were destroyed by Finger Bearer cursed spirit, we got to see a refined version called “Divine Dogs: Totality“
