Jujutsu Kaisen: Every Major Death in Order

Every Major Jujutsu Kaisen Death in Order

Unlike some other similar anime series, Jujutsu Kaisen is not shy with killing off its characters, even if they are the good guys. Sure, a lot of villains have died as well, but Jujutsu Kaisen is one of those series that killed off some of the good guys early on as well. Now, some of these deaths were quite insignificant, but there is a substantial amount of relevant deaths in the series, and we are going to talk about them in this article, in which we are going to list every major Jujutsu Kaisen death in chronological order.

Editor’s Note: This list was updated in January 2024 with Kenjaku’s death.

Suguru sends several cursed spirits on Yuta and Rika, but Yuta manages to fight back and save his friends as well as heal them. As Yuta returns to battle, Suguru releases more spirits, but Yuta uses Rika’s power to defeat them. Suguru manages to understand what Rika’s power is and further expresses his desire to possess her.

Suguru then takes on Yuta in close combat and overpowers him, causing Rika to pull Yuta away from Suguru. While Suguru faces Yuta, the master of curses expresses his views on non-exorcists. Yuta rushes at Suguru, but the latter manages to break his sword. After a brief conversation, the two have with each other, Suguru decides to use all his flails against Yuta and Rika through his Whirlwind technique.

Yuta decides to fully unleash Rika’s power at the cost of his life, and both fire an energy beam powerful enough to exorcise all of Suguru’s curses and force the latter to retreat. Suguru ends up with his right arm ripped off and expresses his desire to possess Rika. Suguru then meets Satoru, and the two begin to chat.

mechamaru death

Chapter: Chapter 128
Episode: 31

Mechamaru started by sending many robotic dolls meant to be a diversion. They didn’t have souls, so Mahito’s Innate Technique didn’t work on them, but they managed to divert his attention for long enough for Mechamaru to appear to vanish. As the earth beneath Mahito and Geto began to collapse, Mechamaru readied another attack while Mahito believed he had escaped. Suddenly, the two stood before a sizable dam facing a monstrous robot. This massive robot was Mechamaru’s Mechmaru Mode: Absolute, a formidable machine with deadly weapons.

As Mechamaru and Mahito engaged in combat, Pseudo-Geto activated a veil that hindered Mechamaru from communicating with the outside world, especially Gojo, whom Mechamaru intended to summon to help him in the battle. However, Mechamaru still had a plan to eliminate at least Mahito. They were both excited about the battle. Mechamaru began with his formidable Absolute Cannon, which seriously hurt Mahito but did not kill him. Mahito changed his feet to deflect the blow. However, they also knew that they each held a trump card because they both knew that just these cursed energy strikes wouldn’t defeat Mahito.

We soon learned that Mechamaru had avoided being killed by using a Simple Domain to counteract Mahito’s Domain’s effects. However, Mechamaru then commits a deadly error: he lets his guard down. Mechamaru was happy, believing he had killed Mahito, but little did he realize that Mahito was still alive and had transformed, preparing for another attack. When Mechamaru finally tried to murder his opponent, Mahito was able to touch him, which ultimately caused Mechamaru’s death as well as the death of his mechanic puppet, which was in Kyoto.


mahito death

Chapter: Chapter 133
Episode: 46

Namely, just before Yuji was going to murder Mahito, Kenjaku, aka Pseudo-Geto, showed up and promised to assist Mahito. Mahito attempted to kill Kenjaku after realizing what he planned to do, but was unable, and Kenjaku then proceeded to use Geto’s original Cursed Spirit Manipulation technique to turn him into an orb and then consume him. And this was the end, as far as Mahito is concerned. There was a chance that Pseudo-Geto could bring Mahito back with the technique, even if only temporarily, but even that ended when Yuta decapitated Kenjaku in the Shinjuku Showdown Arc, seemingly killing him and Mahito as well.


Gojo death

Chapter: Chapter 236
Episode: TBA

In Chapter 236 of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, Sukuna seemingly killed Satoru Gojo by cutting him in half. He explained that he used Mahoraga’s ability to adapt the technique to the whole world and all of existence, which is how he could bypass Gojo’s Limitless and cut him, as he did not technically cut Gojo, he cut the space Gojo was in, and Gojo ended up being cut as a collateral victim of being in that space. The explanation angered many fans as it was perceived as a Deux ex machina and made no sense overall.

Kenjaku death

Chapter: Chapter 243
Episode: TBA

In recent events in Jujutsu Kaisen manga Kenjaku is revealed to be hunting the remaining players of the Culling Game. He explains that he can track the Incarnated players through a cursed object he placed in all of them. Ioiri Hazenoki arrives to confront Kenjaku, but before their battle begins, Kenjaku reveals that he has planted Cursed Spirits monitoring the Cursed Energy of every Sorcerer in Shinjuku.

Kenjaku and Hazenoki engage in a fierce battle, resulting in Hazenoki’s defeat and death. Kenjaku then senses a shift in Cursed Energy as Fumihiko Takaba leaves Shinjuku. Suspecting that Ui Ui’s Innate Technique was used to teleport Takaba closer to him, Kenjaku faces Takaba in another intense confrontation.

During the battle between Takaba and Kenjaku, Yuta Okkotsu joins the fray unexpectedly. Yuta surprises Kenjaku, swiftly decapitates him, and defeats him. Kenjaku’s attempt to use Cursed Technique Reversal: Anti-gravity fails against Yuta’s speed and strength. In his final moments, Kenjaku reflects on the reason he couldn’t detect Yuta earlier, realizing it was due to Takaba. Yuta’s intervention marks the end of Kenjaku’s threat.
