Dagon’s profile is shown in the table below.
Dagon has been seen since the beginning of the series, along with Jogo and Hanami, but the actual battle scene was during the Shibuya Incident.
In the story, we see Kenjaku and other cursed spirits relaxing in a resort-like place, but that resort is in Dagon’s innate domain.
The resort and the mascot-like appearance of Dagon make him seem like an unlikely enemy, but when it comes to battle, his water-based techniques and domain expansion make him terrifyingly strong.

[Jujutsu Kaisen] Explanation of Dagon’s cursed technique and domain expansion!
The following is a detailed explanation of Dagon’s techniques and domain expansion.
In the manga, it is hard to understand because it is in black and white, but Dagon’s body is designed in red, like a boiled octopus, and he deals with techniques derived from the sea and water.
He also draws his opponents into his domain of birth, like the resort area I mentioned earlier, and overwhelms them with his special cursed techniques.
Dagon’s cursed technique is manipulating water and aquatic life.
At the Shibuya Incident, the team of Naobito Zen’in, Kento Nanami and Maki Zen’in encountered Dagon, and the battle began.
At first, the Dagon looked like a mascot, but after shedding its skin and taking on a tougher appearance, it attacked with terrifying combat power.
Dagon’s cursed techniques include the creation of large amounts of water, and the appearance of large numbers of giant fish that bite his opponents.
Dagon creates localized floods with large amounts of water.
Dagon’s first cursed technique was to “generate a lot of water“, so much that it caused localised flooding.
The battle was fought above ground, but if they had encountered this water underground, they would have been submerged and all would have drowned.
Dagon’s body is surrounded by a band of water, which acts as a “water barrier” to prevent attacks from the opponent.
This is not a solid barrier in itself, but as it is water, no amount of strikes will break it and it will return to its original state.
Therefore, it is impossible to break through this barrier with a normal number of moves, but in this case, the “fastest sorcerer“, Naobito Zen’in, broke through this barrier with a series of super-speedy attacks.
Technique release “Death Swarm”.
“Death Swarm” is a technique used by Dagon in the domain to generate a large number of giant fish-shaped shikigami, such as sharks, to devour the opponent.
Due to the overwhelming amount of Dagon’s cursed energy, these shikigami continue to be generated indefinitely, and when combined with the special effects of the domain, they become an unstoppable force.
Even if his opponents cancel out the special effects of the domain by using the “Simple Domain” or the “Falling Blossom Emotion” like Naobito, there is still no end to the infinite number of shikigami, and in the meantime, they have to deal with Dagon at the same time.
Dagon’s domain expansion: “Horizon of the captivating Skandha”
The name of the realm of the Dagon is the “Horizon of the captivating Skandha“.
At first glance, Dagon’s domain expansion looks like a tropical resort with a peaceful scene of sea and sand, but the attacks within the domain are unbelievable.
By activating the “Death Swarm” that we have just introduced while deploying the domain, you can continue to create an infinite number of shikigami.
As mentioned above, there is a limit to how much you can use the “simple domain“, so the only way to deal with it is to deploy the domain expansion as well, and at least neutralize the special effect of “Horizon of the captivating Skandha“.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] See the domain expansions list
By the way, the space that appears in the expansion of the domain represents the domain of birth (i.e. the inside of the mind) of the user.
Dagon’s domain is also used for the meeting of Geto(Kenjaku), Mahito, Jogo and Hanami, where the scene is that of a tropical resort.
This is the space in which Kenjaku found himself when he opened the front door of his flat, and it seems that Dagon has connected the front door of his flat with his innate domain.
I don’t want to be pulled into Dagon’s domain expansion, but I envy them that they can enter such a resort at home.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] Dagon is born from “the feeling of fear of the sea by human being”.
A curse is basically the result of a person’s negative emotions, such as fear and hatred, piling up like a leaven and taking shape.
The bigger the object of these emotions, the more the curse will accumulate and the more powerful the cursed spirit will be.
Dagon is a curse born from “the fear of the sea“, and like Jogo and Hanami, it is based on human’s fear of nature and disasters.
Although Dagon, Jogo and Hanami are cursed spirits, all three are close to natural spirits, as Gojo said that Hanami is “close to a natural spirit“.
They’re an order of magnitude stronger than any cursed spirits out there, and when he use the techniques and domain expansions, even a first-grade socerers can’t handle them.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] Dagon’s ability! Extremely strong and tough!
So far, we have introduced the characteristics of Dagon’s techniques and domain expansion.
So next, let’s take a closer look at its strength and abilities from the actual battle scene of Dagon.
Dagon is a special grade of cursed spirit, even a 1st grade sorcerer can’t deal with it alone. Even in the main story, even the first class spellcasters struggled with him, especially after he used his domain expansion.
Dagon eats a lot of people!
Dagon has a space in his body where he can take in a tremendous amount of objects, and in the Shibuya Incident he swallowed and ate dozens or hundreds of people in the station.
In the Shibuya Incident, he swallowed and devoured dozens or hundreds of people in the station. The people he devoured were digested in his body and only bones remained.
When Naobito gave Dagon a body blow, Dagon vomited up everything in his stomach, but it is clear that he had eaten enough people to make a mountain of human bones.
Dagon was initially a juvenile (conception).
Dagon is also seen in the early part of Jujutsu Kaisen, when he is with Get(Kenjaku) and the others, but he is still in his conception.
In this state, he is just a mascot with an audible “boo“, but when his emotions get the better of him and he crosses the line, he sheds his skin and shows his true strength.
After Dagon’s moult, he becomes extremely powerful!
After shedding her skin, he is no longer cute and has transformed into a big, burly, muscular monster.
In this form, he can levitate in the air and boasts powerful blows, an ironclad defense and an inexhaustible supply of HP.
Although Dagon’s speed is much faster, his endless HP is the most important characteristic of his form.
Dagon’s domain of “Horizon of the captivating Skandha” is unparalleled!
The horror of Dagon’s domain expansion has been explained in the previous chapter.
Without the “simple domain” of or the “Falling Blossom Emotion” of Naobito Zen’in, there is no way to prevent the inevitable shikigami, and while he are dealing with the infinite shikigami, the main body of Dagon will attack you.
As a result of this wave of attacks, neither Kento Nanami nor Naobito Zen’in were able to cope with the shikigami within the domain expansion, leaving Kento Shichimi with a missing left eye and Naobito Zen’in with a missing right arm.
Even four sorcerers are no match for Dagon within his domain!
The three of sorcerers Naobito, Nanami and Maki alone could only wait to be annihilated by Dagon’s domain expansion, but halfway through the battle, Fushiguro entered the domain and activated the domain development “Chimera Shadow Garden“.
This eliminates the special effect of Dagon and makes it somewhat easier to deal with Dagon’s attacks.
However, they were too busy dealing with the giant fish shikigami to deal any damage to the Dagon itself.
In the end, even with four sorcerers, they were outmatched and lost.
After this, the battle situation changed drastically when Toji Fushiguro intervened and we were able to exorcise Dagon, but if Toji had not intervened, they would have been wiped out.
Conclusion of “[Jujutsu Kaisen] Dagon’s domain expansion and cursed technique!”
In this article, we have explained about Dagon, one of the special grade cursed spirit, its technique, domain expansion, strength, and the origin of its birth as a cursed spirit.
Dagon’s mascot-like appearance made him “cute” to many, but after his conception, he lost any trace of cuteness and instead became a fearsome and powerful enemy.
Although he didn’t appear in many scenes, his rage at the death of Hanami and his high sense of camaraderie made him a memorable spirit.
