As a shonen hero, Yuuji possesses nothing new. A loved one died, was thrust into a world of supernatural creatures, now he wants to become the best the world has to offer, discover that he is the chosen one, and train hard enough to become the strongest sorcerer there is.

Yuji was the only one who looked at Junpei and saw a teenager that he could befriend. Almost any other sorcerer in his place would have instantly attacked Junpei when he was about to attack his master, Sotomura.

While Yuji is shown to be excellent at close combat, and his ability to tap into Sukuna’s cursed energy reserves is an excellent advantage, he would be on another level if he managed to manage a Domain Expansion that is half as good. like Gojo’s. Without that, he would have to physically fight his opponents all the time, constantly putting himself in danger.

Sadly, Yuji still has a long way to go when it comes to understanding that not all lives are worth living.

two Strength: He has the powers of the King of Curses at his disposal

Thanks to the Binding Vow he made with Sukuna, Yuji was able to return from the dead, a feat that is unparalleled until now. Not to mention the fact that his injuries can easily heal themselves, how he doesn’t feel as much pain as he’s supposed to, as well as how much more physical prowess he has at his disposal.

Even though Yuji uses Sukuna’s strength to his advantage, he cannot do it of his own free will. The decision to help Yuji is always up to Sukuna and, as has been made very clear, he often refuses to help Yuji if he doesn’t feel like it.

There are other obstacles that stand in the way of Yuji’s ability to trust Sukuna, including the Binding Vow that he doesn’t recall making, as well as Sukuna’s inexplicable obsession with Megumi. In fact, it is due to Sukuna’s numerous secrets that she keeps hiding from Yuji, which puts the boy in constant danger.
