10. Mahito: 7/10

Mahito, our resident existential crisis in the form of a curse, earns a solid 7/10, and here's the dramatic tale of why. Picture a being who looks like he's just stepped out of a cursed fashion magazine, with a smile so eerie it could make a haunted house feel like a cozy cottage in comparison. Mahito's the guy who'd turn a philosophical debate into a life-threatening situation without breaking a sweat. His unique ability to manipulate souls is not just a party trick but a full-blown existential nightmare, making you ponder the fragility of your own existence. It's like going to therapy, but instead of leaving with a sense of self-improvement, you're left questioning every life choice you've ever made.

Now, why 7/10? Because, in a plot twist that Shakespeare would envy, our dear Mahito meets his very uneventful end, turning his story arc into a tragicomedy that would have audiences both laughing and crying into their popcorn. His demise was so poetically irrelevant, you'd half expect a spotlight and a slow clap as he took his final bow. Mahito, in his pursuit to unveil the darkest corners of the human psyche, became a victim of his own narrative - a cautionary tale wrapped in a cursed enigma. His death was not just a moment of silence but a standing ovation to the chaos he brought to the screen, making us all stand and cheer for an encore from the great beyond. Mahito, you may have left the stage, but your cursed existence will be remembered as one of the most intense ones in Jujutsu Kaisen history.
