The Yuta vs Sukuna battle in Jujutsu Kaisen manga has taken a toll upon its readers following the recent duel in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 249. While Yuta vs Sukuna currently gives Yuta and Yuji the primary advantage, it is also possible that Sukuna might overpower Yuta’s domain and Rika’s cursed energy reserve to emerge victorious.

The battle has taken a very sharp turn and currently interrogates the more philosophical questions in Sukuna and Yuta’s minds, as well as the emotional conflicts that they preserve within themselves. In this article, we will try to examine who will win between Yuta vs Sukuna in the ongoing battle in Jujutsu Kaisen manga.

Yuta vs Sukuna – a complete recap of the battle in Jujutsu Kaisen 249

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 249 starts with Yuta defeating Kenjaku and his horde of cursed spirits and finally entering the central battlefield where Sukuna and Yuji are dueling. Yuta defends Yuji and goes on to take Sukuna headfirst. In the beginning panels of the story, Yuta is seen lamenting and reflecting upon Higuruma’s death and his possible indecisive actions. However, he soon consoles himself and recovers from that psychological loop.

  • Soon after, he launches a straightforward attack on Sukuna and after convincing himself that he indeed wanted to end Kenjaku with his own hands releases his Domain Expansion technique.
  • The technique known as the All-Encompassing Unequivocal Love is a guarantee that Sukuna shall perish. Yuta’s cursed energy is beyond human comprehension and even Sukuna is quick to realize that.
  • Seeing Yuta in all of his aggression, Sukuna quickly summons his Hollow Wicker Basket – an anti-domain technique that historically precedes the Simple Domain.

Moreover, Sukuna is quick to realize that Yuta’s Copy and Domain Expansion might simply be distractions to keep two of his hands busy. He believes that it is actually Yuji Itadori‘s soul seizing punches which are the main weapon against his body. Sukuna fears this plan and he intends to take both of the sorcerers head on, but whether he will succeed or not is a question for later.

Jujutsu Kaisen Sukuna vs Yuta – who will win in this battle of the ages?

Sukuna vs Yuta is undoubtedly the biggest and the mightiest clash in a thousand-year history of Jujutsu Kaisen. Yuta might be the only person in the last thousand years that has made Sukuna nervous. Moreover, it is Rika and her stature that keeps him vigilant and cautious before making any hasty decisions. Sukuna is a great strategist, but at this moment it is Yuta’s soul alone that he fears soulfully.

Sukuna vs Yuta is also a very intriguing and tricky battle because if Sukuna wins Yuji will take over Yuta’s spot, but if Yuta wins then Yuji’s entire role as a protagonist will be simply deemed null and void. This battle however at this point favors Yuta and his Domain Expansion, something that Sukuna needs to be careful about. Moreover, Yuta’s sure hit inside his domain guarantees that he will eventually emerge as the victor if Sukuna slips or misses at any point in the game.

Is Yuta powerful enough to face Sukuna alone?

Yuta is simply not powerful enough to face Sukuna alone even though he has Rika at his side. It is impossible for Yuta to win without Yuji’s assistance in this battle. Yuji needs to step in and engage Sukuna in a battle of bare and raw strength of fists for Yuta to perform something mystically unexpected. It is also the case that Yuta vs Sukuna is simply an extension of Yuji vs Sukuna, a battle that has digressed and taken a turn without us even expecting it.

Sukuna is simply on cloud nine after Higuruma’s death, but he is confused and startled. His memories of Yuji’s soul are constantly bothering him, leading him into monologues that are tricky and confusing for his mind to process. He believes that Yuji’s influence on his soul has left an impression and he is not his thousand-year-old self anymore, making him a very toned-down version of who he used to be. Therefore, Yuta will need Yuji all along the way to defeat Sukuna, no matter the consequences or the circumstances.


The Yuta vs Sukuna battle in Jujutsu Kaisen is expected to go on for a few more chapters before Gege Akutami again kills off someone. Whether it will be the end of the story with Sukuna’s death or another major heartbreak for the reader with Yuta’s demise is only a question time can answer, but looking at the present scenario we can be hopeful that Yuta and Yuji will finally put an end to this meaningless bloodbath.
