2. Ryomen Sukuna

Ryomen Sukuna, the infamous King of Curses, the living nightmare. Why is he about as beloved as a porcupine in a balloon factory? Glad you asked.

Picture Sukuna as that one guest at a party who not only crashes it without an invite but also decides to wreak havoc just for the fun of it. With a smirk always playing on his lips and a glint of mischief (or, let's be real, outright malevolence) in his eyes, Sukuna is the embodiment of chaos. He's not the type to kick back and watch the world burn; oh no, he's the one holding the matchbook and gleefully striking the matches. His reputation for being heartless and causing trouble wherever he goes makes him the character fans love to hate.

He's like that villain in movies you hope gets his comeuppance, yet you can't help but be intrigued by every move he makes. I have to admit, as evil as the guy is, he is such a badass.

Now, why do fans give Sukuna the side-eye more than any other character? It's not just because he's a bad boy - it's because he's the worst boy. Sukuna doesn't just cross the line - he does a gleeful dance on it before using it as a jump rope. His power is immense, making him a constant, looming threat over our beloved characters. He's not just any antagonist; he's a master manipulator, turning situations and even people to his advantage with a flick of his cursed fingers.

And let's not forget, he's squatting in our protagonist Yuji Itadori's body like an unwelcome tenant who refuses to pay rent, causing more than just a little internal and external turmoil. Sukuna's blend of power, cunning, and utter disregard for anything resembling morals makes him the character you're warned about in scary stories, the boogeyman of the Jujutsu Kaisen universe, earning him the second top spot on the "Most Disliked Characters" list.
