Kokichi Muta, aka Mechamaru, is an enigmatic sorcerer from Kyoto Jujutsu High. While fans might have chalked him off as just another side character at the start, the recent developments in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 have pushed him into the limelight!

Turns out, Kokichi Muta, the real person behind Mechamaru is stuck with a useless body due to a heavenly restriction. To achieve freedom, he betrayed the Jujutsu society and worked as an informant to Mahito and the others! However, after regaining his body, Muta engaged in a fight against Mahito!

While the fight ended, fans aren’t sure if Mechamaru is dead or not!? In this article, we’ll take a look at Mechamaru’s situation!

Is Mechamaru Dead In Jujutsu Kaisen?

During the fight, Kokichi Muta used all his life energy while attacking using the colossal Mechamaru. Throughout the fight, Mechamaru posed a threat to Mahito, with enough output to exorcise the Special-Grade curse.


During the fight, both characters used their best attacks, with Mechamaru using his hidden weapon, which opened the Simple Domain and provided Mechamaru with a chance to exorcise Mahito. Initially, Mechamaru believed that he had won, but as it turns out, Mahito faked his death and attacked Mechamaru and won the exchange.

Since Kokichi’s body was never shown, fans believed that he was actually alive in a classic shonen fashion. However, Kokichi died at the end of the battle, he had no defense to help him survive Mahito’s attack.

Still, fans will meet Mechamaru again, although in a different form! During the Shibuya Incident Arc, it is revealed that Kokichi had created small Communication Puppets and spread them in order to communicate with fellow sorcerers during the curses’ attack, which ran on his remaining cursed energy.

This is because Muta only betrayed the Jujutsu society to regain his body, he was a good person at heart who aimed to achieve his goal and then take out the opponents. Muta realized that his survival wasn’t guaranteed, and hence, created these puppets to brief all sorcerers about all the information he had on the curses and their plan!

These communication puppets played a fairly important role in the first half of the arc, helping Yuji and the other sorcerers a lot! After these puppets ran out of cursed energy, Kokichi Muta truly died, having lost all connection to the world.
