Freedom is dear to everyone, even a soldier. Jujutsu sorcerers are the soldiers of the living world that protect humans from cursed spirits. In order to maintain secrecy and avoid conflict between Jujutsu sorcerers, they follow a strict list of rules and a code of conduct.
The elders of the Jujutsu community see that no rules are broken by anyone. However, special-grade Jujutsu sorcerers like Gojo Satoru use their power and the Gojo family name to do as they please.
Yuki Tsukumo Jujutsu Kaisen is one such character. She hardly follows the rules of the Jujutsu world and does things as per her own will. Let’s get to know more about Yuki Tsukumo.

Who is Yuki Tsukumo In Jujutsu Kaisen?
|Japanese Name||Tsukumo Yuki (九十九 由基)|
|Ability||Immense Cursed Energy|
|Voice||Noriko Hidaka (Japanese)|
Yuki Tsukumo is a slender woman with long blond hair and brown eyes. She is a special-grade Jujutsu sorcerer like Gojo Satoru and Geto Suguru. Yuki Tsukumo has a chilled-out personality and rarely takes anything seriously. She hates to take on Jujutsu missions and instead travels overseas.
Yuki is bold and outspoken, and she does not care about her reputation. She openly admits that she cannot stand Jujutsu High and the elders who govern it.
Yuki Tsukumo was a star plasma vessel that was supposed to merge with Tengen. But a better vessel, Amanai, appeared, and she was chosen to merge with Tengen.
Thus, Yuki was no longer needed, and this became a bone of contention between Yuki and Tengen. Anyhow, Yuki is not pleased with the method of keeping Tengen’s immortality intact by sacrificing young girls.
Yuki is the teacher of Aoi Todo. Aoi Todo inherited her outspoken and brazen attitude. He also took up her signature phrase, “What Kind Of Girls Do You Like?”
Yuki took an interest in Aoi Todo when he saw a young boy appear bored by beating up older boys. Yuki took Aoi Todo under her wing and exposed him to a life of much excitement. The Aoi Todo trademark scar is the result of a harsh training session Yuki put him through.
Yuki Tsukumo does come in handy when there are major conflicts going on. She helped rescue Yuji Itadori and others from Kenkaju in Shibuya.
Though not a team player, Yuki does break a sweat for the well-being of her comrades. Her confident and candid attitude helps to motivate others around her.
Yuki Tsukumo and Choso were almost strangers to each other, but she did show concern about him when he offered to be bait in order to distract Kenkaju. Overall, Yuki is a complex character that is difficult to understand and define.
Yuki Tsukumo: Cursed Energy
Being a special-grade Jujutsu Sorcerer, Yuki Tsukumo Jujutsu skills are of Top notch category. Yuki’s true abilities were not revealed completely until her fight with Kenkaju.
Aoi Todo is an exceptional Jujutsu sorcerer who has achieved the rank of Grade 1, showing the fruits of the tough training Yuki put him through.
Yuki Tsukumo’s Jujutsu skills were first demonstrated when she easily devoured Uraume’s Icefall Technique with her dragonfly Shikigami. Yuki can use a number of cursed energy tactics. They are:
- 1) Massive Cursed Energy
Yuki Tsukumo possesses a massive amount of cursed energy. A given since she is a special-grade Jujutsu sorcerer.
Her expertise in cursed energy techniques and the immense amount of cursed energy she possesses makes her a formidable enemy.
In her fight with Kenkaju, her fighting skills and a massive amount of cursed energy made soul manipulation ineffective against her.
Even Kenkaju developed doubts about his capabilities to be strong enough to defeat a wild beast like Yuki Tsukumo.
- 2) Star Rage
Star Rage is Yuki Tsukumo Jujutsu’s innate technique. The Star Rage technique allows Yuki to add virtual mass to her body, making her attacks more powerful and effective.
Like Yuji Itadori, Yuki can use Star Rage to break down walls and bring down strong curses, and rogue cursed energy users with her attacks. Yuki can break off the arms and limbs of one’s body with a single punch.
- 3) Domain Expansion
Domain Expansion is a cursed technique that can be used by only a select few Jujutsu sorcerers and Yuki Tsukumo is one of them. However, due to Tengen’s plan, Yuki had to cast only a simple domain. Her Simple Domain can eliminate or counter any cursed energy within a limited space.
Other than curable energy manipulation, Yuki is a master hand-to-hand combatant. She combines her martial arts skills with her cursed energy in close-hand combat to land strong attacks on the opponent.
When fighting against Kenkaju, Yuki was able to punch through his defense and send him flying. She can take direct hits from the cursed womb and survive. She was even able to keep her shikkigami active, showing her advanced durability.
Maybe in future, we will see her complete domain expansion.
Yuki Tsukumo vs Kenjaku in Jujutsu Kaisen
Everyone underestimated Kenjaku’s strength, but truly speaking, Kenjaku is far stronger than Yuki Tsukumo. He alone defeated Yuki, Choso and Tengen.
The fight between Kenjaku and Yuki pushed them both to the edge. Yuki Tsukumo and Choso stayed back with Tengen to protect him against Kenjaku.
Kenjaku wanted to capture Tengen and merge him with most of the non-sorcerers. Kenjaku wishes to force humanity to evolve in a world where all humans transform into cursed spirits.
Choso offered to engage Kenjaku first in order to drain his cursed energy and make him reveal his cursed techniques. Yuki watched him closely from a distance. Choso’s piercing blood attack was a sure hit that forced Kenjaku to reveal his cursed technique.
Yuki understood his gravity manipulation and jumped into the fight. Kenjaku adopted a different attitude with his new opponent and kept from engaging her directly till she revealed her powers.
He deployed a cursed spirit to engage Yuki. The cursed spirit was supposed to neutralize all curse techniques, but Yuki’s Shikigami tore a hole through it.
Kenjaku understood her cursed technique, the Star Rage, which added virtual mass to her without changing any of her body characteristics.
Also, her Shikigami Garuda can use the same technique. Yuki hit Kenjaku with a punch to the face and sending him flying and breaking both his arms.
Kenjaku started to take the war more seriously. He healed his arms using the reverse curse technique and used his domain expansion, unknowing of the fact that it was exactly what Yuki wanted him to do.
Tengen was on the lookout for Kenjaku to expand his domain so that he could destroy his domain’s outer barrier by trapping it within his barrier, thereby nullifying the effect of his domain.
But contrary to what they were expecting, Kenjaku’s domain, The Womb Profusion, was without any outer barrier. This derailed their plans. Yuki used her Simple domain in order to counter Kenjaku’s domain.
But Kenjaku’s domain was too strong, and Yuki was unable to stop it. Tengen destroyed his own barrier in order to remove Kenjaku’s barrier.
With no barrier present, The Tomb Of The Star is visible and open for attack. Yuki is heavily injured by Kenjaku’s domain expansion but refuses to give up.
She attacks Kenjaku with Garuda. Kenjaku used a lot of cursed energy for Domain Expansion. He is not able to use his cursed technique for some time. Yuki used this situation as an advantage and attacked him without giving him time to recover.
Choso attacked Kenjaku from behind in order to attack him. He used his blood-piercing technique point-blank on Kenjaku. But Kenjaku used The Neck spin, a cursed technique that rotated his upper skull cap and allowed him to escape from a direct hit.
Both of them attacked Kenjaku with all their might. But Kenjaku gained his technique back. Choso was injured and unable to fight anymore. Yuki, however, did not stop.
Kenjaku used an opening and made a fatal attack on Yuki at her core. Her upper body is separated from her lower half, and it is a gory scene to witness.
But Yuki is stubborn and grabs hold of Kenjaku’s leg. She is ready to sacrifice herself in the battle. She concentrates a massive quantity of mass and turns herself into a black hole.
A heroic feat indeed, but her sacrifice goes in vain as Knjaku is able to save himself by using gravity manipulation. Kenjaku goes ahead and captures Tengen.
Is Yuki Tsukomo Currently Alive?
After the culmination of her fight with Kenjaku, Kenjaku is able to defeat her and Choso. Choso lies brutally injured while Yuki lies torn in two pieces with her upper body separated from her lower half.
But in a recent chapter, it was unveiled that Yuki is still alive. She is also an expert in the reverse cursed technique. Maybe we will witness her in action in the future.
