[Jujutsu Kaisen] Dagon is popular for his cuteness!
Here is a list of the most popular scenes in Jujutsu Kaisen, along with the volumes and chapters in which he appears.
Dagon doesn’t appear as often as the other main characters, but even if he doesn’t have any lines, his mere presence is enough to make you feel relaxed and cute.
First appearance of Dagon (vol 2, chapter 10)
Dagon’s first appearance is in the 10th chapter of the 2nd volume of the manga.
It is the scene right after the death of Yuji Itadori on a mission related to a special grade cursed spirit that appeared in the boys’ home, when Geto(Kenjaku), Jogo, Hanami and Dagon are walking in the street.
At this point, Dagon was still not able to speak due to his conception, and his voice was saying “Puff, Puff“. Again, he is a cute mascot.
By the way, when you look at the characters side by side, you can see that Dagon’s body is surprisingly big.
Floating Dagon (vol. 2, chapter 16)
In the 16th chapter of the 2nd volume of the manga, when Geto(Kenjaku) opened the front door of his flat, he found himself in a tropical resort.
This is Dagon’s domain of birth, and Geto and his friends usually hide themselves in such a space isolated from the outside world.
Dagon, who is developing this tropical resort, is drifting in the sea.
His innocent eyes and cute mascot-like behaviour are the secret of his popularity.
Dagon is absorbed in soap bubbles. (vol. 10, chapter 84)
In chapter 84 of volume 10 of the manga, there is a scene where Geto(Kenjaku) was talking to Jogo before the operation of sealing Satoru Gojo.
Geto was explaining to Jogo about “the greatness of Gojo’s Limitless cursed technique.” and the fact that “Gojo can’t show his true potential in a space with a large number of non-sorcerers”, while Mahito, Hanami and Dagon are playing with soap bubbles.
I’m not sure why they don’t listen to him when they’re also participating in the Shibuya Incident.
This kind of innocence is also the reason why they are called cute.
It would be interesting to have a spin-off work that depicts the everyday lives of these cursed spirits.
Dagon is the mascot of Jujutsu Kaisen. (vol 12, chapter 106)
In the 106th chapter of the 12th volume of the manga, the team of Naobito Zen’in, Keto Nanami and Maki Zen’in encountered Dagon.
In this scene, Dagon is hiding behind a pillar, and after Naobito punched him, Dagon’s appearance is the most “cute” scene.
At this point, Dagon was still a juvenile and cannot speak any proper language.
This is the most cute scene of Dagon.
For Naobito and others, they should have defeated him in this cute state.
Dagon used to speak in baby language. (vol 12, chapter 106)
This is the scene from the 12th volume of the manga, chapter 106, after Naobito Zen’in gave Dagon a body blow.
ThenDagon spitted out all the human bones he has eaten so far and cries
For the first time, Dagon spoke a human language.
However, the next moment
How dare you kill Hanami?
You killed Hanami?!
Suddenly it was full on killing and evolved out of its cute conception state.
Dagon loves his friends. (vol. 13, chapter 107)
After Dagon has shed his skin and completely abandoned his cute figure to become like a gorilla, there is a scene in the 13th volume of the manga, chapter 107, where he has a conversation with Naobito Zen’in.
In this conversation, Dagon showed his love for his friends and his pride as a cursed spirit.
Hey, cursed spirit!
Do you know how many frames are in one second of an animated sequence?
My name is not cursed spirit.
These days, it’s all about resolution, and wanting to increase frame rate.
My name is Dagon.
Hanami, Jogo and Mahito.
4K, and 60fps that.
We all bear name!
Don’t you find it so unrefined?!
At any rate, the conversation was not going well at all.
Dagon was furious at being called ‘cursed spirit‘, and raged that “Hanami, Jogo and Mahito have name.“.
As Jogo said, it’s a line that also shows the pride of being an alternative to the human position.
And yet, for someone of his age, Naobito seems to know a lot about the latest technology.
Dagon’s dinner (vol. 14, chapter 122)
In the reminiscence scene of the 122nd chapter of the 14th volume of the manga, we see Dagon before his moult.
Dagon’s body has a space like a four-dimensional pocket, which can take in large amounts of water and objects.
Here, he locally floods the station and eats a lot of people with water.
Even non-sorcerers do not have completely zero cursed energy, so even if the cursed energy of each person is small, the amount of cursed energy will be large if there are many of them.
Dagon may have accumulated his cursed energy by eating people in this way, and this may have led to his evolution from conception.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] When Dagon evolves from conception, there is no longer cute factor.
In the 106th chapter of the 12th volume of the manga, Dagon’s mascot-like appearance gave way to a big, muscular body.
The big-eyed, slurred speech cutie Dagon was nowhere to be seen, and with his overwhelming strength, the cute factor has disappeared.
Incidentally, his speech has changed since he took this form, and he now speaks in a very clear language.
It seems that his intelligence quotient has also jumped up with his evolution, making him a very troublesome opponent in battle.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] Is Dagon’s name and appearance based on the Cthulhu Mythos?
It is said that the Dagon has its origin in the Cthulhu Mythos.
I think Wombo knows *exactly* what’s what and there’s nothing “random” about it. I give you Cthulhu, Dagon, Nyarlathotep, and Azathoth. pic.twitter.com/XYKcYju0zD

In fact, in the Cthulhu Mythos, there is a mythical creature called “Dagon“, which looks like the creature on the upper right in the image above. It looks like a “giant fish with arms and legs”, similar to the physique of Dagon in Jujutsu Kaisen.
On the other hand, “Cthulhu“, a divine creature, looks like the one on the upper left of the image above, with tentacles around its mouth, similar to those of Dagon.
Probably the name is taken from “Dagon” of the Cthulhu myth, and the figure might be referred to the body of “Dagon” and “Cthulhu”.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] Dagon from the anime version is also cute and soothing.
Dagon also appears in the anime version of Jujutsu Kaisen, and is still as cute and soothing as ever.
This video is the part of 5th episode of the anime, when he was walking around the city with Geto(Kenjaku), Jogo and Hanami.
In the anime, the colours are more vivid and you can see that “Dagon is so red“.
Conclusion of “[Jujutsu Kaisen] Dagon is cute! Is the model Cthulhu? The anime version is also adorable!”
In this article, we have introduced some of the most popular scenes of Dagon, the original story of Dagon, and the anime version of Dagon.
Although Dagon is an enemy character, he looks like a mascot, so if he doesn’t fight anyone, he’s just a cute character.
Especially after shedding his skin, fans reacted like “It’s surprising like when I my small kitten turns into a huge obese cat.”. lol.
