In the intricate world of “Jujutsu Kaisen,” few characters have captivated and mystified fans like Ryomen Sukuna. Chapter 238, titled “Inhuman Makyo Shinjuku Showdown, Part 15,” penned by Gege Akutami, John Werry, and Snir Aharon, finally pulls back the veil on Sukuna’s true form, a revelation eagerly anticipated by readers worldwide.
Sukuna’s emergence as one of the pivotal characters in “Jujutsu Kaisen” has been a journey shrouded in enigma. From his storied past during the Heian era to his curse-wielding prowess, Sukuna’s backstory, abilities, and intentions have remained elusive, adding layers of intrigue to his character. This latest chapter brings forth some long-awaited answers, providing insights into his true form, which has been tantalizingly hinted at since the early chapters.

Sukuna’s Four-Armed Form: A Game Changer
Sukuna’s distinctive four-armed form has been a subject of speculation and awe. Initially described by Gojo Satoru, the series has depicted Sukuna in various flashbacks and color pages, yet he consistently chose to appear with only two arms. Even in his battle against Gojo, considered the strongest modern sorcerer, Sukuna restrained his full power, a choice that remained unexplained until their confrontation’s climax.
This form grants Sukuna unparalleled advantages in combat. With four arms, Sukuna is virtually undefeatable, even in physical or hand-to-hand combat scenarios. His ability to simultaneously execute jujutsu techniques while engaged in battle exemplifies his unmatched prowess. Unlike other sorcerers who sacrifice speed for power during technique activation, Sukuna, with his extra limbs and mouths, seamlessly blends speed and power, elevating his jujutsu techniques to unprecedented levels.
The Enigma of Sukuna’s Strength and His View on Power
The lore of Sukuna’s strength extends beyond his physical attributes. His approach to battle, marked by overwhelming aggression and complete disregard for anything or anyone, sets him apart. This perspective was poignantly highlighted during his interaction with Kashimo, where Sukuna’s body was described as perfection, free from the loopholes typically found in powerful cursed techniques.
Sukuna’s philosophy of strength is rooted in a unique understanding of love and power. To him, being the strongest is not a solitary journey but a testament to his era’s acknowledgement. His view on defeating opponents is almost an act of love, recognizing their desire to be acknowledged by the strongest. This mindset is consistent with Sukuna’s interactions across the series, where he shows respect for formidable opponents yet remains unyielding in his ambitions.

The Reason Behind Sukuna’s Restraint Against Gojo Satoru
One of the most intriguing aspects of Sukuna’s character is his decision to withhold his true form in his battle against Gojo Satoru. This chapter sheds light on this strategic choice. Sukuna’s four-armed form, while immensely powerful, would have been ineffective against Gojo’s Infinity. His strategy to first neutralize Infinity, leveraging the Ten Shadows’ General Mahoraga, underscores his tactical acumen. Moreover, maintaining a partial manifestation allowed Sukuna an “extra life,” a reset that proved crucial in his confrontation with Kashimo.
