Jujutsu Kaisen, the show that made us all sit up and reconsider our career choices, because apparently, being a Jujutsu sorcerer is the coolest job market we've never heard of, is like a buffet of characters with each more complex and flavorful than the last.

On one end, you've got your classic, freshly-baked heroes with a dash of trauma for taste, and on the other, villains so chilling they'd make your freezer feel inadequate. It's a wild, wild world where high school students are not just worried about acne or prom dates but also about whether they'll accidentally ingest a cursed finger and become a demon's timeshare.

The protagonist pool is a mix of raw power, emotional depth, and the kind of teamwork spirit that would make even the most dysfunctional office team shed a tear. Yuji Itadori, our orange-haired, finger-eating enthusiast, leads the pack with the kind of optimism that's both infectious and slightly concerning, considering his diet. Then there's Megumi Fushiguro, the broody, animal-summoning heartthrob who makes you want to go through his Spotify playlists, and Nobara Kugisaki, who redefines "hammer time" in ways MC Hammer never could. This trio, under the tutelage of the eye-masked wonder, the perfect and charming Gojo Satoru, navigates the cursed waters with a blend of bravery, brawn, and the kind of banter that makes you wish curses were real, just so you could join their squad.

On the flip side, the antagonists are not your garden-variety evildoers. They're more like a meticulously curated garden of flesh-eating, soul-crushing flora. Sukuna, the King of Curses, is basically what you'd get if the concept of evil took a human (or, well, a semi-human) form and decided to go on a power trip. Then there's Mahito, with a smile so creepy it could curdle milk, and Jogo, who's essentially a walking, talking volcano with anger issues.

These characters bring depth to the dark side, making you ponder over the nature of existence and whether being turned into a curse would qualify you for a tax break. So, with those wonderfully diverse characters in mind, let's rate 13 of my favorite Jujutsu Kaisen characters in, well, just how awesome they are.
