Brotherly Relation Between Jin Itadori And Sukuna Was The Secret Behind Yuji’s Strength

Welcome to the world of Jujutsu Kaisen, where powerful curses try to take over the Kawasaki City of Kanagawa.

But we all know for every villain in any world, there is an equally powerful group of heroes, and in JJK, they are Jujutsu Sorcerers.

Even though every sorcerer intends to save the world, some are actually more powerful and can easily dismantle the highly graded curses.

Key Takeaways

  • In JJK anime, Yuji Itadori is the main protagonist, and Sukuna is one of the main antagonists.
  • Sukuna engulfed his twin brother while still in the mother’s womb.
  • Sukuna‚Äôs twin brother was reincarnated as Jin Itadori, which makes Yuji his nephew.

One such sorcerer is Yuji Itadori, the main protagonist of the show. When it comes to raw physical strength, no one comes close to Itadori.

However, in the first episode, we learned that Itadori engulfed the finger of Sukuna, a.k.a. King Of The Curses, and wasn’t affected by it.

And this phenomenon shocked all the sorcerers in the JJK world. But for fans like us, we wondered if Sukuna was somehow related to Yuji.

This theory seemed highly delusional then, as Sukuna was a curse, and Yuji was a human.

Despite that, when Yuji’s parents were revealed, we came to know that just like Choso, Itadori was also the result of a cursed womb.

Ancient curse user Kenjaku had taken over the body of Yuji’s mother, Kaori Itadori, and his father, Jin Itadori, had no idea about it.

Then, Chapter 257 was revealed, where Gege, the creator of JJK, revealed the connection between Jin Itadori and Sukuna.

Chapter 257 Reveals The Connection Between Sukuna And Jin Itadori

Spoilers Alert!! If you haven’t updated with manga yet, this section has some info that has yet to be shown in Anime.

Back in 2023, when Gege unveiled chapter 257, it was filled with many secrets.

The chapter began with a full-fledged fight between Yuji and Sukuna. For the first time in the series, Yuji had the upper hand.

However, the most significant moment came when Sukuna revealed some crucial information about Yuji’s past.

Yuji’s father, Jin Itadori, is actually the reincarnation of the Sukuna’s twin brother.

The fans always discussed the theory of Sukuna engulfing his twin, but in this chapter, Gege himself confirmed the fact.

Now it’s known that having a twin is bad luck in JJK verse. This is why Sukuna ate his twin while still being in his mother’s womb.

Like many fans, we thought that Yuji might be the one who is reincarnated. But boy, we were wrong.

During the fight, Sukuna said,

I dodged my fate as a twin. I ate my other self inside the womb.


After this confirmation, we finally understood why Yuji had immense potential from his birth.

It also reveals why Sukuna can always shine during the time of battle.

This whole revelation has excited the JJK verse, and the manga story has taken a different path.

But that’s a story for some other day.


Who Defeated Sukuna 1000 Years Ago?

Before being a curse, Sukuna was a sorcerer known to have uncontrollable powers, and he was defeated by fellow Jujutsu Sorcerers 1000 years ago.

What Happened To Gojo Satoru In Jujutsu Kaisen?

Gojo was defeated by the Sukuna and was ultimately killed.

Why Does Gojo Cover His Eyes?

Gojo has the power of six eyes, which makes him one of the best sorcerers in JJK verse. However, if he doesn’t cover his eyes on a daily basis, he will get tired quickly, so he chooses to cover his eyes.
