Jujutsu Kaisen, profile of Mahito! technique, birthday, height, weight, etc.

First of all, we will explain Mahito’s profile, his appearance and the background of his birth as a curse.

Mahito is one of the curse that appear in the Jujutsu Kaisen, and he looks just like a human, so if he is wearing clothes, he looks like a human.

This is due to the fact that Mahito is a curse born out of “the hatred that people have for other people”, which makes him more human-like in appearance than other curses.

Mahito’s profile! Birthday, Height, Weight, Technique, Voice Actor, etc.

We have compiled a brief profile of Mahito in the table below.

Mahito is a newborn among the special grade of curses and is still in the stage of experimenting with his powers and having fun with trial and error.

He is notable for his childlike innocence and
, but at the same time he is cruel and inhumane, slaughtering humans while having fun.

Mahito’s appearance: a humanoid spirit with claws! Even more handsome in the anime!

As we said at the beginning, Mahito has a human-like appearance. He is strong enough to kill hundreds of humans, but he usually dresses like a human.

The movie above is an example of Mahito in anime, you can see that he is alike human and really handsome.

His hair is light blue and long, parted in two and tied at the ends like pigtails. Also he has a black eye on his left and a light blue eye on his right.

He usually wears clothes, but as he is a curse, people can’t see him when he walks around town.

Mahito was born out of the emotions of humans hating humans!

In chapter 20 of volume 3 of the manga (episode 9 of the anime), when Mahito was talking to Junpei Yohida, he talked about his origins.

I am a curse that was born…
from the stomachs of people who hate and fear toher people.

From this statement, we can see that Mahito is a curse born from “the feelings of hatred and fear that people have towards other people”.

In the first place, all kinds of “curses” themselves are created from a pool of negative emotions generated by human beings.

Mahito was born from the negative emotions of the ugliest one in the world, which is why his form is similar to that of a human being. This is why they are so powerful as curses.

Jujutsu Kaisen, the strength of Mahito and his techniques

Although Mahito is a newborn curse, as a special grade curse, he uses extremely powerful techniques and special abilities.

Furthermore, because he is a newborn, he grows and learns during his battles with the shamans, so he is a fearsome curse who becomes more accurate with each battle.

Here is an explanation of the Mahito’s techniques and strength.

Mahito’s technique “Idle transfiguration”.

Mahito's technique (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

Mahito’s innate technique is “Idle transfiguration“, which means to touch a soul and change its form.

In order to activate this technique, the Mahito must touch the opponent directly, but if he does, he will be transformed into a different form and die instantly, unless he has a means of defence.

The countermeasures are as follows

  • Don’t let Mahito touch you.
  • If touched by Mahito, you must protect your soul with his tecnique.

Therefore, if you are touched by a Mahito, unless you have a special way to protect your soul, even if you are a 1st grade shaman, you will die instantly before the Mahito’s technique.


In addition, the Mahito’s technique allows him to change the form of his soul at will, so he can also change his own appearance at will.

For example, he can create elaborate dummies, change parts of his body into animals or fish to move at high speed, or get wings to fly.

Mahito’s Strength: Mass-producing altered human beings and using them as pawns.

In addition, Mahito uses the technique “Idle transfiguration” on humans to alter their form and stock them inside his body as small dolls.

This allows him to spit out small altered humans from his belly during battle and treat them as pawns.

This altered human is so distorted and disfigured by Mahito’s technique that at first glance it looks like a spirit, and even the first grade shaman of Kento Nanami could not tell it was a human at first sight.

Incidentally, this modified human is short-lived, dying within minutes of being released by Masato. However, the modified human still has a little bit of ego left, so he can speak a little bit at the end of his life.

Mahito uses the modified human as an asset, but also as a psychological tool for those who are hesitant to kill others.

Mahito’s Strengths: The application of the techniques “Soul multiplicity” and “Body repel”.

Mahito's Strengths: The application of the techniques (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

Soul multiplicity” and “Body repel” are two of the techniques he uses against Satoru Gojo on the fifth basement floor of Shibuya Station in chapter 89 of volume 11 of the manga.

The “Soul Multiplicity” technique is an application of the “Idle transfiguration” technique, forcing the souls of two or more altered humans to fuse together.

In addition, the “Body repel” uses the rejection of the souls forcibly fused by the Multiple Souls to explosively increase the mass of the souls and release them at the opponent.

The more souls that are fused together, the greater the power and range of the attack.

When Mahito used it on Satoru Gojo in chapter 89, he consumed a large number of modified humans in Shibuya station before unleashing it.

Also, in chapter 121 of volume 14 of the manga, he uses “Body repel” from “Soul multiplicity” against Yuji Itadori.

Mahito’s strength: the application of the technique “Polymorphic soul isomer”.

Mahito's strength: the application of the technique (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

In chapter 129 of volume 15 of the manga, Mahito showed the application of “Polymorphic soul isomer“.

He used the modified human beings he had and forced them to fuse with “Soul multiplicity”. And this is not the type that opens up like a “body repel”, but creates an existence like an altered body.

The characteristics of the “Polymorphic soul isomer” are

Extremely high power
Extremely low defense

It has a very sharp performance, and although it has enough power to blow Aoi Todo through a building with one shot, on the contrary, Aoi Todo killed it instantly with one punch.

So It gains explosive power by burning up multiple souls.

The strength of Mahito’s domain expansion: “Self embodiment of perfection”.

The strength of Mahito's domain expansion: (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

Mahito’s domain expansion is “Self embodiment of perfection” and he used it against Kento Nanami in chapter 29 of volume 4 of the manga (episode 13 of the anime).

It’s a weird looking domain expansion where people’s hands and arms are entwined in a jet black space.

The weakness of Mahito’s technique “idle transfiguration” is that it requires direct contact with the opponent, but since Mahito’s attacks hit the target absolutely in the domain expansion, if it is a normal opponent, Mahito’s victory is confirmed the moment he enters the domain expansion.

However, when he used it on Kento Nanami, Yuji Itadori broke in from the outside, and by doing so, Masato was half forced to touch the soul of Ryomen-Sukuna.

So this time, when he touched his soul, Ryomen-Sukuna got angry and crushed his domain expansion.

At this time, it was just a case of his incompatibility with Yuji Itadori, but against an ordinary shamans, Mahito’s dmain expansion is a terrifying technique that leads to instant death.

The strength of Mahito’s true form “Instant spirit body of distorted killing”.

The strength of Mahito's true form (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

The true form shown by Mahito in chapter 131 of volume 15 of the manga is the “Instant spirit body of distorted killing“.

When Mahito successfully performed the “Black flash“, he grasped the essence of his soul and embodied it with the technique “Idle transfiguration”.

He has a muscular body, a long and strong tail, black thorns on his elbows, countless tentacles on his neck, and his whole face is covered with a mask-like shell.

In his true form, Mahito doesn’t use the same tricky tactics as his altered counterpart.

His strength is greater than that of Yuji Itadori, and his body is also more robust than Yuji, making him the worst evolution of all.

Although he was defeated by Yuji Itadori, Mahito is a newborn curse, so he has a lot of room to grow and evolve, which is a scary thing.

Jujutsu Kaisen, How strong is Mahito? Attack does not work?

So far we have talked about Mahito’s techniques, strength and characteristics, but one of the main features of Mahito is his absolute defensive power.

To be precise, it doesn’t mean that he’s as tough as Hanami, but it’s not fair that even if a shaman’s attack destroys Mahito’s body, it does virtually no damage.

So let’s take a closer look at this cheat performance of Mahito.

No damage if you don’t interfere directly with Mahito’s soul.

Mahito was crushed by the rubble in the battle with Kento Nanami, but in chapter 24 of volume 3 of the manga, he crawled out from between the rubble as if nothing had happened.

In this case, the rubble that Kento Nanami sent down was filled with a magic power due to an extended technique, and Mahito’s body was also crushed and torn apart, but Mahito was not damaged.

In order to damage Mahito, it is necessary to perceive the form of his soul and then apply an attack that directly interferes with his soul.

So attacking him with ordinary techniques would be futile, as he would be regenerated in an instant.


However, the magic power of Mahito is not infinite, so if you use a tremendous strategy to continue to inflict damage until Mahito’s majic power is exhausted, the damage will eventually come.

However, if you take such a strategy against Mahito who is a special grade curse, you will not know how many hours it will take, and in the first place, considering the strength of Mahito, there are only a few shamans who can fight properly, so it is not realistic at all.

Mahito’s natural enemies are Yuji Itadori and Ryomen Sukuna!

No damage is done to Mahito’s body by normal attacks, but the blows of Yuji Itadori are effective.

From chapter 27 of volume 4 of the manga (the 12th episode of the anime), there was a battle between Yuji vs Mahito, where Mahito’s nose was bleeding from Yuji’s punch.

As Yuji is “vessel of Ryomen-Sukuna”, he always has other souls inside himself. So he can unconsciously perceive the outline of the soul, and can damage Masato.


Furthermore, another reason why Mahito is incompatible with Yuji is because the characteristic of Mahito’s technique, the act of touching the soul, is directly connected to touching the soul of Ryomen-Sukuna.

In fact, the first time was allowed, but the second time, Sukuna lost his temper and smashed through the deployment of Mahito’s domain, further damaging him to the point of being fatal.

For Mahito, Yui is a natural enemy in two ways, ‘perceiving souls’ and ‘if you touch him, he will make Sukuna getting rage’.

In a battle of sorcerers and spirits, there are many factors other than simple strength that come into play, and for Mahito, Eugene Torache is the worst of them all.

The battle between Yuji Itadori and Kento Nanami makes Mahito think of ‘death’ for the first time!

Mahito has never been close to the idea of death because of his special nature of no damage from normal attacks and because he has only been born as a curse for a short time.

However, in chapter 29 of volume 4 of the manga (the 13th episode of the anime), he was beaten up by Yuji Itadori, who was damaged by Mahito, and by Kento Nanami, a first grade shaman, and for the first time he became aware of death.

But on the contrary, this was an experience for Mahito and he was able to use the domain expansion at the last moment.

Even though he has only been born as a curse for a short time, he is able to use domain expansion, which is a terrifying growth rate.

The first time Mahito felt fear in the face of Yuji Itadori’s strength and determination!

In chapter 132 of volume 15 of the manga, the battle between Yuji and Mahito has come to an end.

In the fight with Mahito, Yuji Itadori has made up his mind.

I’ll keep killing curses for as long as I can.
That’s may role in all this.

He said this and started to hunt Mahito.

For the first time in his life, Mahito felt fear and awe, and ran away without shame, and this was the first time he showed his face after looking down on humans for so long.

Jujutsu Kaisen, the reason of Mahito’s death!


In chapter 132 of volume 15 of the manga, Kenjaku showed up in front of Mahito.

Kenjaku wanted the cursed technique of Mahito from the beginning, so he absorbed Mahito by “Cursed spirit manipulation“.

This is the end of Mahito, and the long term of fight between Yuji and Mahito is over.

Conclusion of “Jujutsu Kaisen, Mahito’s technique and domain expansion! The reason of death is what?”

In this article, I explained about Mahito, who appears in Jujutsu Kaisen, about his profile, strength, jutsu, strength of domain development and characteristics.

He is the nemesis of Yuji Itadori, and his strength and growth rate make him a difficult opponent to keep an eye on until the very end.
