Jujutsu Kaisen: Who Was Tōji Fushiguro's Wife?
Share:

The characters we’ve seen in Jujutsu Kaisen are diverse and come in all shapes and sizes. Some are more important, and some are less, but it is common knowledge that these characters are very intriguing, regardless of their role. One of these characters is Tōji Foshiguro, a supporting villain from the anime series who appeared in two arcs of the manga. Tōji Foshiguro is unique in many ways, and that is why fans have developed an interest in him, especially since he is bound to appear in the upcoming second season of Jujutsu Kaisen. In this article, we are going to tell you who Tōji’s two wives were in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga and anime series.

Tōji Fushiguro actually had two wives, but both are unnamed as of the time of writing. The first one was Megumi’s mother, whom Tōji married and whose last name he took; Megumi was born as their only child. He later left her and married a second unnamed woman, who was Tsumiki’s mother, so he became her stepfather. He left her as well and then lived a life of his own, alone. 

The rest of this article will focus on Tōji Foshiguro and his two unnamed wives, that have been mentioned in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga and anime. Tōji Foshiguro might be a secondary villain overall and in terms of his on-screen time, but his private life is nevertheless a very important aspect of the story (especially in relation to Megumi), which is why we will tell you everything you need to know. Be careful, though, as the article will be filled with spoilers.

Tōji Fushiguro had two wives. Both were left unnamed, but both are quite important.

Tōji Foshiguro was an enemy in the Gojō’s Past Arc, where he was the principal villain. He is Megumi’s father and a former member of the Zen’in Clan. Born as Tōji Zen’in, similar to Maki, he was born with a Heavenly Restriction, which rendered him completely devoid of cursed energy.

In exchange for this, he has gained superhuman physical abilities and highly developed senses, enabling him to see and sense cursed spirits. While he was young, he even visited Gojō and was surprised that the then-young sorcerer could see him, as Tōji was known for being undetectable. But even that was not enough for the Zen’in Clan. He played a major role in the series as a secondary villain, but sadly, his age was never revealed.

As for his private life, it all started when he was quite young. Rejected by his family for this condition, he simply left them one day, and many say that the fact that he decided not to kill them was a lucky coincidence for them, as Tōji would have been able to do it with ease. After leaving, he became a sorcerer assassin. During this period, he met his first wife, a young woman whose last name was Fushiguro.

The two of them ended up marrying, and Tōji discarded his Zen’in name and took her name, thus becoming Tōji Fushiguro. The couple had one child, Megumi, who had a high potential of manifesting cursed energy. During this period, he even met with Naobito Zen’in to tell him that he would sell his son to the Zen’in family if the boy’s cursed energy manifested itself.

Tōji never had a proper relationship with his son; he even “forgot” who he was at one point, although this was a ruse because, when he was revived 12 years after his death, he recognized his son immediately and even sacrificed himself to save Megumi when he found out that Megumi had left the Zen’in Clan.

He was willing to sell his son to the Clan, but he also told Satoru that it would happen, knowing that the latter would do something about it, so we can assume that despite being a horrible father to him, he still cared at least a bit. We don’t know whether he actually cared about his mother, though, despite the fact that Megumi seems to hold her in very high regard and that he seems to have been quite close to her.

Megumi avoids a fatal stab from Toji

While he was still young, Megumi’s mother died at one point and Toji met another unnamed woman he married. But, while they did not have a child of their own, his second wife had already had a child, a daughter named Tsumiki, who thus became his stepdaughter and took the name Fushiguro, just like her mother. Tsumiki thus became Megumi’s stepsister, although this fact was revealed much later in the story, and it shocked Megumi as well.

His second marriage was not a happy one either, and he left his second family as well, opting to live a solitary life from that point on. So, what happened to him later? Later, he was hired to assassinate Riko Amanai, who was under the protection of both Gojō and Getō, both of whom he managed to defeat in their first encounter. He was even able to bring Gojō to the brink of death, and he was only saved by learning how to use the Reverse Cursed Technique, which allowed him to heal himself.

Tōji Fushiguro boasted enormous power during both fights. Against Satoru, he was able to demonstrate his speed and used his blind spot to attack him and slash his throat.

In Getō’s case, he used his anger (because he shot Rika and told him that his best friend, referring to Gojō, was dead) to make him careless, but he did not kill him, being afraid that all of Getō’s curses would be released in the process. Later on, though, he faced a revived Gojō once again, and this time, he was easily overwhelmed. Tōji wanted to take some time to develop a new approach for Gojō, but he was overwhelmed when Satoru combined his old techniques into a new one, the Hollow Technique: Purple.

With this technique, Tōji Fushiguro was (easily) killed by Gojō during their second meeting. Tōji Fushiguro, as he was dying, was then approached by Satoru, who asked him whether he had any last words; Tōji told him that Megumi was about to be sold to the Zen’in Clan and that he could do whatever he wanted with that piece of information. He then died; Gojō then proceeded to locate Megumi and tell him everything about his father.
