8. Eso

Eso is yet another character who looks like he stepped out of a cursed painting, because, much like his brother Kechizu, he literally did.

Eso, one of the notorious Death Painting Wombs, is like that one guest at a party who not only crashes it but also decides to wreak havoc just for kicks. His unique, shall we say, "fashion sense" (if you can call it that), complete with creepy, extra eyes, and a vibe that screams "I'm here to ruin your day," sets the stage for why fans love to hate him. He's not just a villain - he's a walking, talking nightmare that specializes in making our beloved Jujutsu Kaisen heroes' lives miserably interesting.

Now, let's get to the juicy part of why Eso climbs the charts of infamy. It's not just his looks or his creepy powers (though, let's be honest, being able to curse someone with a touch is pretty scary), but it's his role in the story that really grinds people's gears. He attacks with a ferocity that makes you think, "Whoa, dude, take a chill pill!" But no, Eso's all about bringing pain and suffering, targeting our heroes with a glee that's both terrifying and, in a weird way, kind of impressive. It's his delight in chaos and destruction, coupled with a power that's just downright eerie, that secures his spot as one of the most disliked characters.

Fans respect the hustle but can't help but root for his downfall, making every scene he's in a blend of "What's he going to do next?" and "Somebody please stop this guy!"
