Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 251 spoilers have revealed Maki and her comeback. Moreover, fans were surprised to see Yuta use Sukuna’s Cursed Technique against him in the previous chapter of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga. The suspense around the next chapter’s events peaked as the chapter concluded on a cliffhanger. Plot leaks and unprocessed scans of JJK Chapter 251 have appeared on social media as the publication date approaches.

In this article, we shall look at Maki and her return to Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 251 and also look at all future predictions.

JJK Chapter 251 finally shows Maki back on the big stage

During the recent Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 251 spoilers release, Maki was seen entering the battlefield at the last hour. She enters the fight and pierces Sukuna with her Soul Splitter Katana in a fantastic turn of events. According to the leaks, Sukuna is criticized by the narrator for succumbing to her unexpected attack.

It is a standard procedure for jujutsu sorcerers and a mediocre scheme that Sukuna might have easily avoided. The editor further remarks, “A THURST (OF SWORD) FROM A DEMON WITH NO CURSED ENERGY,” near the conclusion of the chapter.

Maki can easily enter and exit any domain due to the absence of cursed energy in her. She enters the domain with a special purpose – to slash Sukuna’s soul and separate Megumi’s – as it is the purpose of her katana. Yuji has been planning all along to save Megumi, however, Megumi’s soul has already given up on that proposal and has succumbed to his fate as a slave. So, it is not clear whether she would be able to separate the two souls, but she is an advantageous comrade in battle.

Can Maki defeat Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 251?

  • Maki can defeat Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen, however, that can never be a solitary mission. It is something that can be achieved only if Yuji and Yuta give her a helping hand. Sukuna is already boiled and busted after all of the previous battles and Yuji’s soul-seizing punches.
  • He does not have the same reversed energy output and can perform no big tricks to eliminate his opponents quickly.
  • Moreover, his fate is barely hanging by a thread, given that if Megumi wakes up the next hour and decides to stand up against him, Sukuna is gone for good.

But the actual challenge here is – Megumi has given up. Maki could’ve defeated Sukuna but not until Megumi splits them from within. Her katana is one of the strongest weapons from the inventory of cursed tools. A katana as such can split and obliterate a man’s soul. Given that this individual has no cursed energy and therefore her movements are extremely unpredictable and her physical strength and agility surpass any normal individual, she can easily defeat Sukuna with a little bit of assistance in this situation.


Jujutsu Kaisen 251 leaks have shown us what Maki could do to prove her worth in such dire times. It introduces a completely powerless character in front of Sukuna to basically mock him and his condition. However, she should be able to defeat Sukuna given that her abilities are far more heightened and sharp than other sorcerers who solely rely on their cursed energy.
