Sukuna Vs Mahoraga in Episode 17 Explained

Mahoraga vs sukuna

The battle between Sukuna and Mahoraga finally dropped with episode 17. In this article, I will explain the powers of Mahoraga, Why Mahoraga’s sword is so deadly, Megumi’s Ten shadow technique, and Haruta’s cursed technique.

Megumi ten shadows Mahoraga

Megumi explained his cursed technique in episode 17, which is the Ten Shadows technique. Upon inheriting the Ten Shadows technique the user receives 2 divine dogs, which we have seen in season 1. The divine dogs and the other nine are called Shikigami. Apart from the divine dogs if the user wants to use the other 9 Shikigami’s, they have to defeat that Shikigami to make them surrender to the user. Once defeated, the user can fully control that Shikigami.

The Ten shadows technique user can summon every Shikigami but can only control those that have been defeated. The one who defeats all the 10 Shikigami is called the “Master of 10 Shadows technique”. The user can’t take help from anyone for defeating that Shikigami. Even if he takes help and defeats the Shikigami, he will not be able to control it.

This technique is inherited in the Zenin clan members, and it is passed down from generation to generation.

Haruta Shigemo Mahoraga

Haruta Shigemo’s Cursed technique is explained in episode 17. His technique is named as ‘Miracles’. It allows him to erase small miracles happening every day from his memory and store them under his eyes as marks. When his life is in danger, these stored miracles are released, saving him from death. There are six marks under his eyes which represent six miracles. Once all the six marks turned white, he became vulnerable to life-threatening attacks.

His technique is similar to the myth that a cat has 9 lives.

Mahoraga vs sukuna

Mahoraga and Sukuna’s battle starts with Mahoraga attacking Sukuna with his blade. But Sukuna is The King of Curses, so he blocks the attack and using some punches and dismantle throws him far away.

Mahoraga’s blade possesses positive cursed energy, enabling it to instantly eliminate any cursed spirits with a simple touch.

During his battle, they destroyed many buildings. In the battle between Mahoraga and Sukuna, the two are evenly matched and neither has a clear advantage. But Mahoraga gains an edge in the battle by using his Dharma chakra to adapt to the dismantle of Sukuna.

Mahoraga’s most powerful technique is adaptation to different attacks. So, if a jujutsu user attacks Mahoraga, and Mahoraga doesn’t get killed by the attack immediately. So, eventually he will adapt to that specific attack and after one point his Dharma Chakra will spin and he will be able to nullify the attack completely. Mahoraga can not only adapt to cursed attacks but also normal kicks and punches.

Mahoraga can be defeated only by using an attack that can kill him in a single shot. A very powerful attack that Mahoraga won’t be able to survive, and if he isn’t able to survive the attack, he will not be able to adapt to it and finally will get killed.

Sukuna’s domain expansion is unique because it is an open domain. Open domain means there are no boundaries. Compared to a closed domain, which can be broken from the outside, an open domain can’t be broken. The domain has a range which is 200 meters, but Megumi was also within the same range so for the sake of saving his life Sukuna opened the domain a little less, around 140 meters. Within the range of his domain, everything will be cut and turned into ashes. As a result, from roads to buildings, everything, including civilians, was chopped off.

But Mahoraga was not affected by his domain because he already adapted to this technique. So, Sukuna killed Mahoraga with the fire arrow that he used against the fight with Jogo. Because Mahoraga had no idea what the attack was, and it was so powerful that Mahoraga was killed by a single shot.

When Sukuna killed Mahoraga he also killed Haruta because he thought so many people had been killed by him. Let’s kill this one too.
