Who Has More Cursed Energy Than Gojo?

This article will find out who has more cursed energy than Gojo.

Cursed energy is an essential element of the Jujutsu Kaisen universe. It’s why the world of cursed spirits and jujutsu sorcerers happened.

Cursed energy is born from the negative emotions of humans, like fear, anger, envy, etc. And when cursed energy is collected enough, it will “give birth” to cursed spirits. And jujutsu sorcerers learn to control cursed energy to exorcize cursed spirits.

With that said, all the events of the Jujutsu Kaisen world revolve around cursed energy. But we will not dive too deep into the origin or the role of cursed energy in this article because the main character of this blog is Gojo.

If we look at all the characters we met in the Jujutsu Kaisen series, we won’t quickly find that a person has more cursed energy than Gojo. Because Gojo is a Special-grade jujutsu sorcerer, his cursed energy outperforms a regular jujutsu sorcerer. But there’s one guy who could pass Gojo in this field.

Yuta Okkotsu – A Future “Gojo?”

Talking about who has more cursed energy than Gojo leads us to Yuta Okkotsu. Yuta was a student of Gojo before the main timeline of Jujutsu Kaisen happened. He was the one to achieve Special-grade when he had just gotten into Jujutsu High school. And in less than one year, he could control his power and defeat Geto Suguru – another Special-grade Jujutsu sorcerer. 

This is a considerable feat!

So, how does Yuta have a higher cursed energy than Gojo?

The reason for this might come from his ancestors. In the finale of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Gojo investigated the origins of Yuta. He found that Yuta was a descendant of Sugawara Michizane – one of Japan’s three Vengeful spirits. And the enormous cursed energy of Yuta might be because of this. 

How Much Cursed Energy Yuta More Than Gojo?

All we know is that Yuta has higher cursed energy than Gojo, but we don’t know the exact number from the author. If Jujutsu Kaisen had a scouter like Dragon Ball, that would be easier. However, what if we apply the number to their cursed energy?

Let’s say that a typical first-grade jujutsu sorcerer’s cursed energy is around 40 to 50 points.

Then, the cursed energy of Gojo must be around 100 to 150 points. If so, the cursed energy of Yuta must be about 200 points. However, his cursed energy can be up to thousands of points with Rika!

In Jujutsu Kaisen 0, the original Rika can boost the cursed energy of Yuta to infinity!

However, this new Rika is stronger than before. But it’s still enough to give Yuta a lot of cursed energy.

Who is Stronger, Yuta or Gojo?

Even though Yuta has a considerable amount of cursed energy, Gojo is still stronger. 

Here’s the reason:

Yuta can run out of cursed energy, but Gojo can’t!

This is what Yuta says in the fight with Yuji in chapter 140. Because Gojo has Six Eyes, he only needs a very, very, very little cursed energy in total when he uses cursed techniques.

And Gojo can get back that cursed energy quickly just by nature recovery. So Gojo can’t ever go out of cursed energy. But with Yuta, he can run out of cursed energy. 

And he is almost empty cursed energy when fighting with three strong opponents in Sendai Colony Arc. Yuta has used the Reverse Cursed Energy constantly when fighting with them. And his cursed energy reduces no stop.

But with the support of Rika, Yuta can continue the fight and get victory.

In chapter 178, the author explains the connection between Rika and Yuta. “Rika” stays with him after Rika Orimoto passes away (you can find this in Jujutsu Kaisen 0). And through Rika, Yuta can:

  • Use his cursed techniques.
  • Regain cursed energy.
  • And unlock the true power of Rika.

That said, Yuta has a lot of cursed energy, but he can run out of cursed energy if he can’t call Rika or if Rika lacks cursed energy. But with Gojo, the cursed energy he needs is negligible, so Gojo is still higher than Yuta in a fight for endurance.

For example, both Gojo and Yuta can use Reverse Cursed Technique, and let’s say it would take ten cursed energy points to be cast.

With Gojo, he has Six Eyes, so the real cursed energy needed is might around 0.001. And with some time, he can recover this amount of cursed energy and keep fighting. 

But with Yuta, the needed cursed energy of the Reverse Cursed Technique is 10, as usual. That means his cursed energy will be lost after using it ten times. This time, he needs Rika to supply energy so he can use other techniques.

That’s how we can understand about cursed energy of Gojo and Yuta. Yuta has higher cursed energy than Gojo, but Gojo outperformed Yuta in optimizing and using cursed energy. So, to sum it up, Gojo is still stronger than Yuta.


This is just a theory. However, there is another potential guy who has more cursed energy than Gojo in the series…

It’s Sukuna Ryomen!

Do Sukuna's tattoos relate to his power?

Sukuna, in Chapter 117, showed us why he used to be the strongest of the Heian ages. And his cursed energy is genuinely immense. He killed Jogo, exorcized Mahogara, and saved Megumi’s life. But after all, he still looks normal.

The number of cursed techniques he used can quickly destroy a city!

2x Flame arrow, 1x Domain Expansion, 1x Reverse Cursed Technique, Uncountable Dismantle, and Cleave.

With a common jujutsu sorcerer, he might faint out of cursed energy after trying to use those techniques. But Sukuna made it like a piece of cake. And this time, he just has 15 fingers!

How much-cursed energy Sukuna has if he collects enough 20 fingers?
