Who is Stronger: Yuji or Megumi? A Head-to-Head Battle

Although Yuji Itadori and Megumi Fushiguro are not shown as rivals in Jujutsu Kaisen, many fans have always debated about who would win if ever these two main characters have a face-off.
If you’re curious about our take on who is stronger, Yuji or Megumi, then continue reading this article to find out!

Yuji or Megumi: Who Would Win?

Yuji and Megumi are both first-year students at Tokyo Jujutsu High although Megumi has been training a bit longer than Yuji. This is evident in the way that Megumi has the most advanced technique among first-year students. And so far, he is the youngest student to create his own domain expansion even though it is not yet fully complete.

Still, we cannot disregard Yuji’s potential. When it comes to physical strength, he definitely has the upper hand. His body is also insanely durable; he can withstand continuous attacks even from the strongest opponents.

As you can see, both Yuji and Megumi have their own strengths. So, we will look into three of the most important elements in a fight in order to give the best possible answer to the question, “Who is stronger: Yuji or Megumi?”

Yuji vs Megumi: Battle of Physical Strength

Yuji Itadori

Yuji’s superhuman strength, one that could even harm curses like Hanami and Choso, would surely give him an upper hand in a hypothetical fight with Megumi. Even without using cursed energy, Yuji can destroy concrete walls and throw a car with pure physical strength. Yuji’s insane durability also makes him such a formidable opponent. He can even withstand numerous attacks from special grade curses such as Mahito.

Apart from that, Yuji is also the strongest martial arts expert in the series. He was able to fight toe to toe with Todo, a grade 1 jujutsu sorcerer who has a history of single-handedly defeating grade 1 and special grade cursed spirits. This surely says a lot about Yuji’s physical strength.

Megumi Fushiguro

Megumi’s physical prowess is just as impressive. Despite being a shikigami user, Megumi is not afraid to engage in close combat. His endurance is also worth acknowledging considering that he survived being beaten up by Sukuna and Todo—both of whom have demonstrated insane physical strength in every fight. Honestly, coming out alive and intact from a one-on-one with Sukuna is already a valuable feat.

However, by sorcerer standards, Megumi is still lacking when it comes to close combat, especially without the help of his shikigami. When it comes to raw physical prowess, Yuji definitely has more advantages over Megumi.

Now, Megumi will have an edge over Yuji if he can properly utilize his Ten Shadows Technique and Domain Expansion. Although his Domain Expansion is incomplete, the thick fluid shadow and shikigami can give Yuji a difficult time in battle. Inside his Domain Expansion, Megumi’s mobility also becomes enhanced so he can surely stand a chance against Yuji in close combat.

Most importantly, once Megumi summons Mahoraga, it will be over for Yuji—and Megumi too, unfortunately. Mahoraga is the most powerful shikigami that can be summoned from the Ten Shadows Technique. It will definitely give Megumi a guaranteed win.

But here’s the catch: Mahoraga also happens to be the most uncontrollable shikigami in the history of the Ten Shadows Technique. That’s why Megumi doesn’t summon Mahoraga unless he is extremely desperate and has no other choice. If ever Megumi summons Mahoraga, there’s a huge chance that it would mercilessly eliminate both him and Yuji.

Yuji Itadori

As for Yuji, he can take advantage of the fact that Megumi’s Domain Expansion is still incomplete. He could just counter all of Megumi’s attacks inside the Domain Expansion. After all, Megumi’s attacks don’t have a guaranteed hit to the target since his Domain Expansion is incomplete. Once Yuji successfully hits Megumi with a Black Flash, he can surely gain the upper hand even if they’re inside Megumi’s Domain Expansion.

Still, we will give this one to Megumi since he has an excellent mastery of the Zenin Clan’s prized Ten Shadows Technique. Even Gojo Satoru himself believes that Megumi has the potential to become as strong as him in the future.

Yuji vs Megumi: Battle of Intellects

One of Yuji’s most impressive qualities is that he is a quick learner. Even after he had just recently learned about Black Flash during his fight with Hanami, he managed to master and use the technique right away. And not just once, but four times!

Aside from that, Yuji is extremely intuitive and can easily adapt to changes in battle. With immense strength and tactical intellect, Yuji has overpowered a lot of opponents which only proves that he is one of the strongest sorcerers in the series.

Megumi Fushiguro

And so is Megumi, who is known for his immense tactical intellect. Megumi is an analytical fighter who managed to beat many opponents by outwitting them. He acknowledges that the opponent can be stronger than him, so instead of aimlessly charging at them, he thinks of a way to defeat them without engaging directly. With his reasoning skills and vast knowledge of jujutsu, Megumi is definitely not an easy opponent as well.
