1. Mahito

Alright, let's dive into Jujutsu Kaisen's most disliked character and talk about Mahito. The pure emotional roller coaster this curse put us all through is just... beautifully evil.

Imagine if your worst nightmare took a stroll in the park, whistling a tune while plotting the downfall of everything you hold dear. That's what Mahito feels like. This guy isn't just a villain - he's a walking, talking embodiment of "I'm going to ruin your day and enjoy every second of it." His special power? He can reshape souls, which is exactly as terrifying as it sounds.

Imagine going to him for a makeover and coming out as a completely different entity. Not cool, right? Mahito uses this power to hurt people in the most personal and invasive ways possible, making him a character that fans love to despise. I can't believe I used to like him.

Mahito's not just a one-trick pony with a creepy power. He's also the master of manipulation, turning friends into foes and making every encounter with him a psychological minefield. He plays with people's emotions like they're cheap toys, leading to some of the most heart-wrenching moments in Jujutsu Kaisen - like that one time when he turned Junpei, a potential friend and ally of our protagonist, into a cursed spirit. And, before that, how he used the fact Junpei's mother died gruesomely to another curse as a way to fuel Junpei's sadness and anger. Yeah, Mahito is twisted, earning him a top spot in the "Most Hated Characters Hall of Fame."

His actions don't just cause immediate pain; they leave scars on the characters and the audience, making his every appearance a moment to brace yourself for impact. I even stripped his pin from my backpack.

In short, Mahito is like that villain you can't wait to see defeated, making every minute of his screen time a deliciously hate-filled experience. And, speaking of defeat, his demise is beautifully unimportant. It's a win.
