Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 237 - Kashimo's Mythic Beast Amber explained

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 237 begins with the Kashimo vs Sukuna battle. It also portrays the mysterious curse technique – Kashimo’s Mythic Beast: Amber. It is known to be an ancient CT that draws its primary inspiration from Eastern mythology and has the ability to manipulate electricity. It gives Kashimo the edge to overpower Sukuna as the former can also change his form during the battle, converting himself into a shapeless and formless entity made up of electrical flow.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 237 – the battle between Kashimo and Sukuna

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 237 introduces us to the battle between Kashimo and Sukuna. While Uraume and Hakari are at a distance, Sukuna is delivered a Curse Tool by a theatrical turn of events. Kashimo begins a philosophical line of questioning and focuses on questions of morality and Sukuna’s childhood, to which the latter replies bluntly and takes an absurdist approach.

Kashimo, upon his realization that he might be overpowered by Sukuna in no time, uses his mysterious Cursed Technique – Mythic Beast: Amber. This results in the transformation of Kashimo’s body and renders any phenomena created by electricity a weapon for him. Kashimo transforms and practically surpasses the limits of mankind, meaning that once his CT ends, his body will crumble into nothingness and he will die.

What is Kashimo’s Mythic Beast Amber?

Kashimo’s attacks in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 237 remain pretty straightforward in the beginning, but these wave-like attacks hold the capacity to obliterate everything in their way. But, he has a secret CT in his arsenal – the Genjuu Kohaku or the Mythic Beast Amber. This allows his body to be transformed into a pure form of energy, leaving his flesh and blood behind and basically merging with a natural element.

  • Mythic Beast Amber gives Kashimo the ability to harness raw electricity in a variety of forms and his sound and wave attacks could actually obliterate anything in its way.
  • This even overpowered Sukuna’s reactions and the versatile CT was actually able to manipulate magnetism.
  • Kashimo also has the ability to disable Sukuna by attacking his nervous system and targeting his opponent’s brain and its electrical signals, giving a surprising blow to his formidable enemy.

Does Kashimo’s Mythic Beast Amber stand a chance against Sukuna?

Kashimo has become a suitable opponent against Sukuna with his Genjuu Kohaku. But the King of Curses has remained an undefeated contender and his Domain Expansion of the Malevolent Shrine is a challenging obstacle for Kashimo. The Genjuu Kohaku is a devastating cursed technique, but it still holds an unfair position against Sukuna’s capabilities.

  • Sukuna has the knowledge of a thousand years of war and he is a tactical fighter to begin with.
  • If he had the ability to defeat Gojo in a whiff, he could simply choose to overpower Kashimo in a puff.

Kashimo is able to think straight in these situations and he is not letting his emotions entirely overpower his thoughts, but he has to pull stronger moves than the Genjuu Kohaku or a stronger strategy than just brute attacks to defeat the King of Curses.


With Sukuna having started his transformation and Kashimo taking an elemental form, the battle in Jujutsu Kaisen 237 has just begun and we are yet to witness the twists that are to be introduced. While the outcomes are unclear and uncertain, fans are waiting eagerly for Kashimo to overpower Sukuna and for the return of Gojo Satoru, both of which would be miracles at this moment.
