4) Ui Ui
Ui Ui was a young jujutsu sorcerer who was on a mission with his sister, Mei Mei, and Yuji Itadori when the Shibuya Incident occurred. They were investigating a curse at Meiji-Jingumae Station when they were attacked by a powerful cursed spirit.
- Ui Ui was able to use his innate technique to create a barrier that protected them from the attack, but he was injured in the process.
- He was then taken to a hospital, where he remained for the rest of the incident.
Ui Ui is a talented jujutsu sorcerer, but he is still young and inexperienced. He is also not very confident in his abilities. However, he is a loyal and resourceful ally, and he is always willing to help his friends. During the Shibuya Incident, he showed great courage and determination, and he played a vital role in helping Mei Mei and Yuji survive.
3) Small-pox Deity
The Smallpox Deity is a special-grade cursed spirit that was summoned by Geto Suguru (Psuedo) during the Shibuya Incident. It is a large, humanoid curse with pox-covered skin and a long tail. It has the ability to create a Domain Expansion called Graveyard, which traps its opponents in a coffin and then crushes them with a gravestone.
The Smallpox Deity was first encountered by Mei Mei and her brother Ui Ui. It quickly trapped them both in its Domain Expansion and began to attack them. Mei Mei was able to survive by using her cursed technique to create a diversion, and Ui Ui was able to escape by using his Simple Domain.
Mahoraga is the most powerful shikigami in the Ten Shadows Technique, and it was summoned by Megumi Fushiguro during the Shibuya Incident. Mahoraga is a towering, eight-armed creature with a sword in each hand. It is capable of adapting to any and all phenomena, making it incredibly difficult to defeat.
Megumi summoned Mahoraga in an attempt to defeat Haruta Shigemo, a special-grade sorcerer who was working for Kenjaku. However, Sukuna intervened and killed Mahoraga before it could defeat Shigemo. Sukuna was impressed by Mahoraga’s power, and he commented that it would have killed him if Megumi had summoned it when they first met.
Initially shown as Psuedo Geto, Kenjaku’s real identity was not revealed previously. However during the Shibuya Incident arc some disturbing facts were unveiled regarding him.
- He possessed Geto Suguru’s body and used his identity to gain the trust of the Jujutsu sorcerers.
- He gathered a group of powerful cursed spirits, including Mahito, Jogo, and Hanami.
- Kenjaku also orchestrated a series of coordinated attacks on Jujutsu High and other locations in Shibuya.
Kenjaku’s goal was to seal Gojo, the strongest jujutsu sorcerer in the world. He was successful in sealing Gojo, but he also suffered significant losses, including the death of Mahito, his most powerful ally. He used his vast knowledge of curses and his ability to possess other people’s bodies to orchestrate the attack, and he was able to stay one step ahead of the Jujutsu sorcerers at every turn.
The Shibuya Arc isn’t just a story—it’s a tapestry woven with threads of destiny, emotion, and discovery. From characters like Atsuya Kusakabe, Ui Ui, and Smallpox Deity, to Mahoraga, each thread contributes to a narrative that tugs at our hearts and ignites our imagination.
