Toji is one of the coolest and strongest characters in Jujutsu Kaisen, and for a reason!
Here are 10 things you might not know about Toji Fushiguro!
1) Toji is the only person to ever defeat Gojo
Toji devised a clever plan to defeat the most powerful sorcerer of his time, and it was a success.
He was able to kill both him and Geto, allowing him to complete his objective effectively and escape.
While this was a victory, it was short-lived. Gojo came back with an even better understanding of Jujutsu and annihilated Toji!
This is the only time Gojo has ever been defeated in a battle, excluding the sealing in the Shibuya Incident Arc. One can make a case for this, as nobody actually defeated Gojo in battle!
2) Toji Was Abused By The Zennin Clan:
Toji was the son of the head of the 25th Zennin clan. The Clan Leaders were decided by the cursed technique inherited by a person, and unfortunately, Toji didn’t have one.
In fact, he couldn’t even use cursed energy! This led to him being ostracized by the family and treated like trash. This was similar to what Maki faced but worse.
3) Megumi’s Mother Changed Toji
All of the abuse eventually caught up to Toji, and he became an unhinged maniac. After leaving the clan, he would go out with a lot of women for money, until he met Megumi’s mother, whose last name he took up.
According to author Gege Akutami, Megumi’s mother helped Toji in becoming a better person and finding peace in life.h
However, after suddenly passing away, Toji went back to his ways.
4) Toji Actually Loves Megumi
While this might sound crazy, and Toji didn’t even remember Megumi in season 2’s episode 2, Toji was actually looking out for his child.
His plan to sell Megumi to Zennin was supposed to be a way for Megumi to grow well, as he was sure that his child would have a good cursed technique, meaning he’d be treated well. Later, he even hinted at Gojo to look out for his son!
5) Toji’s Heavenly Restriction
Born with zero cursed energy, Toji was able to hone himself to the point of even “killing” the strongest sorcerer in history for a while.
This is because, in exchange for his cursed energy, Toji was gifted with a superhuman body. In fact, Toji was known as the “Sorcerer Killer” due to the amount of bounties he took!
6) How Toji Got His Scar:
As we previously explained, Toji was hated by his family. And, the Zenin clan has a vile method of dealing with kids who can’t become sorcerers: throw them into a pit of cursed spirits.
Later, Maki and Mai were thrown in these pits too, where Toji got the scar over his lips.
7) Toji’s Grade As A Sorcerer
Considering how strong Toji is, and just how feared he is by everyone who comes into his vicinity and the fact that he once killed Gojo, he’s easily a Special Grade sorcerer, right?
Unfortunately, since Toji got his powers from a heavenly restriction, the Jujutsu society didn’t have a morsel of interest in fairly rating him, and he was ungraded.
8) Toji Loves To Gamble
Toji’s main hobby apart from scamming women with his sexy look is, you guessed it, gambling!
There isn’t a bad habit this man wouldn’t pick up! Toji would spend all the money he’d earn from missions in an instant by dumping it all into gambling!
9) How Toji Got His Weapons:
When Toji left the Zennin Clan, he was left to fend off himself. As he couldn’t exorcise curses himself, he needed a cursed weapon, which the Zennin had plenty of.
However, Toji received none of them. Instead, he took jobs from shady people and earned enough money to start buying the weapons he needed to use!
10) Toji’s Pet:
Toji’s pet, aka his weapon storage curse, is synonymous with Toji now. Since Toji can’t use cursed energy, he would earnestly train the curse.
And, it eventually paid off as the curse started working according to Toji’s wishes!
