The Jujutsu Kaisen manga has been on a roll for months now, with characters like Gojo and Sukuna putting on a vulgar display of power.

This has led to a power creep, as other characters are struggling to keep up with the insane pace and power levels.

So, we’ve made a list of 5 characters who desperately need a power-up to square up!

1) Panda

Panda, a Grade 1 sorcerer was believed to be fairly strong, and we’ve been proved wrong time and time again in crucial situations.


During his fight against the special grade spirit Hanami, Panda could barely keep up. Furthermore, Kashimo completely annihilated him during the Culling Games!

While it is hard to see Panda get a power-up, as Principal Yaga is dead, if someone could use cursed energy in the way Yaga mentioned to Principal Gakuganji, then, we could see Panda stirring things up!

2) Inumaki Toge:

The second-grade rice balls ingredient-speaking sorcerer is a fan favorite for being funny and having a really cool cursed technique!


Throughout the anime, we’ve rarely seen him in major fights as his cursed technique has massive consequences.

Inumaki’s cursed speech technique allows him to command people and curses to perform certain actions.

This can range from “jump” to “die”. Whenever Inumaki says anything extreme, the toll on his body increases significantly as well.

Due to this, his ability has remained dormant, waiting to be used to its full potential.

In fact, Okkotsu Yuta used his copy cursed technique and displayed just how strong the cursed speech technique can be!

Fans are eagerly waiting for the day Inumaki manages to step up and save the day.

3) Itadori Yuji

Even Itadori Yuji, the main character isn’t safe from the insane power creep caused by Gojo and Sukuna!

Since the moment Sukuna left his body, Yuji has become a cursed object with insane levels of strength.

However, he was manhandled by Sukuna in the last fight, leaving him feeling useless.

Hence, it is vital for Itadori to unlock something new! In fact, Itadori’s new cursed technique was hinted too! You can read about it in detail by clicking here. 

Even during his confrontation with Sukuna, it seemed like Itadori had something up his sleeve! Now, we wait and see.

4) Choso

Itadori’s big brother, Choso was a force to be reckoned with when he initially made his appearance.


Choso even defeated Naoya, who was supposed to become the head of the Zennin clan.

However, since then, Choso has fallen behind the curve. He was dropped unconscious by Yuta with just one shot, and Kenjaku toyed around with him as well.

In order to protect his brother, Choso has to step up somehow, because dealing with a threat like Sukuna won’t be easy, even in a team. Perhaps a domain expansion could help level the field!

5) Todo:

Aoi Todo, the besto friendo of all, lost his arm in his fight against Mahito after failing to open a simple domain fast enough.

However, he still managed to provide a crucial distraction later, allowing Itadori to pummel Mahito into the ground.

Back then, he announced that the Boogie Woogie technique was dead, meaning his fate as a Jujutsu Sorcerer was effectively sealed shut.

However, people have been speculating and hoping that perhaps Todo could form a binding vow to use his cursed technique again. Additionally, a domain expansion could do wonders, pushing him into the Special Grade category!
