How Many Fingers Does Sukuna Have in Jujutsu Kaisen?

Ryomen Sukuna is The King of Curses — and for many, the strongest sorcerer to ever live. True to that, each of his severed fingers carries a fragment of his soul and a massive amount of cursed energy. But how many fingers does Sukuna have? And after he eats all of them, what will happen?

Here’s how many fingers Sukuna has eaten in both the anime and the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, as well as what will happen once he recovers them all.

What Happens When Sukuna Eats All of the Fingers?

Sukuna has a total of 20 Cursed Fingers in Jujutsu Kaisen. After consuming all of them, he will be able to regain his original power and fully reincarnate. Sukuna’s original form has four arms (thus 20 fingers), four eyes, and two mouths.

How Many Fingers Has Yuji Eaten in the Anime?

Yuji has eaten a total of 15 fingers in the anime. He ate the first finger during the incident in Sugisawa High School and the second one as part of a test by Gojo. The third and fourth ones were eaten by Sukuna without Yuji’s consent after the fight with the Finger Bearer at Eishu Juvenile Detention Center and after the battle at Yasohachi Bridge, respectively.

During the Shibuya Incident arc, an unconscious Yuji was then forced to eat his fifth finger by Mimiko and Nanako Hasaba. After they were found by Jogo, the curse then forced the still-unconscious Yuji to eat the remaining 10 Fingers, all of which were in his possession.

How Many Fingers Has Sukuna Eaten in the Manga?

As revealed in the manga’s 222nd chapter, Sukuna has eaten 19 of his fingers, as well as his mummified corpse (which according to him, makes up for the cursed energy stored in the remaining finger), before starting his battle with Gojo. Sukuna believes that to pull off Yuji’s execution indefinitely, Gojo hid the last finger.

Can Itadori Control 20 Finger Sukuna?

Although there’s no way to know — given the current events in the manga — and even if we consider how he was still able to keep The King of Curses under control for most of the time after consuming 15, I don’t think Itadori would be able to control Sukuna at the full might of his powers. The reason for that lies in how, after consuming all fingers, Sukuna would be able to fully reincarnate, thus getting full control over his body.

You can read Jujutsu Kaisen officially through either VIZ’s official app or MangaPlus. Don’t forget to also check out the 2024 release schedule for the manga, so that you can keep note of both the breaks as well as the days when new chapters will debut.
