Jujutsu Kaisen’s Mahoraga Adaptation, Fully Explained!

Cursed Techniques are the essence of Jujutsu Kaisen, and in some families, like the Zenin Clan, a person’s reputation is built on the strength of their technique. If he had been from his clan, Megumi would have been treated like a king because of the power of his Ten Shadows Cursed Technique, which enables him to summon and control 10 Shikigami.

Even though each has its advantages, the last Shikigami, Mahoraga, is what all users of this technique need. This character is powerful enough to stand against the likes of Sukuna and Gojo. As a result, he easily ends up in the top 5 strongest characters in the entire series due to his unique adaptation ability. In this article, let’s see this ability and examine why this makes Mahoraga such a scary opponent to face in Jujutsu Kaisen.

Who is Divine General Mahoraga?

Eight-Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga, the tenth and last Shikigami of the inherited Ten Shadows technique, is the strongest of them all, not only because of his signature adaptation ability but also because of his strength and durability. This menace is a huge human-like creature with an eight-handled wheel hovering above his head, which is the source of his terrifying power.

Who is Divine General Mahoraga?

Mahoraga is so strong that, in the history of the Ten Shadows technique, which has been in existence for many centuries because it is an inherited technique of the Zenin Clan, not a single person has ever been able to tame the beast alone.

It was first called by Megumi against Haruta. Still, it would later fight Sukuna, where the King of Curses would overcome it. Finally, Sukuna took over Megumi’s body and controlled the beast, which he used to fight Gojo in the Shinjuku Showdown arc.

What’s the process behind Mahoraga’s adaptation?

If he happens to come across a person or a system that can’t be stopped by the usual means, his wheel will eventually stop and finally help him determine what could be done in order to defeat this. One example would be the Sukuna’s final combat with Gojo Satoru, the King of Curses, who kills only the Infinity with Mahoraga after it adapts to Infinity, which it does by slashing the surrounding space instead of physically cutting Gojo.

What's the process behind Mahoraga's adaptation?

It also seems that the complexity of whatever Mahoraga goes up against seems to influence how quickly he can adapt to it. For example, he adapted to Dismantle quite rapidly due to its nature of being a simple slashing attack, but adapting to Infinity proved to take far longer due to the complexity and strength of the Cursed Technique.

Additionally, the speed of his learning or adaptation became much faster the more times he faced new techniques or attacks. Even once he has figured a way to cope with it, his adaptation provides him with a means to further study it and think of other solutions to destroy it.
