The 15 Best 'Jujutsu Kaisen' Fights (So Far), Ranked
Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the hottest shonen to hit the world of anime in the past decade. Like any great shonen, it's filled with exhilarating fights. For this list, we're counting down some of the best fights to appear in Jujutsu Kaisen. We'll only be focusing on the top Jujutsu Kaisen fights from the anime and the prequel film, which means there are some amazing manga-only fights that won't make it in.
But there are a ton of exciting fights to celebrate. One dramatic one from the movie was Yuta Okkotsu versus Geto. Haven't seen the movie yet? Well, you probably remember Gojo's epic showdown with the volcanic Curse, Jogo. Which fight is your favorite?

Yuta Vs. Geto
In order to fulfil his goal of eliminating all non-Sorcerer humans, Geto needs more power. He decides that a great source of that power is Rika, a super-strong Curse that's attached to Yuta Okkotsu. In order to get Rika's power for himself, Geto must destroy Yuta.
Yuta doesn't understand Geto's goal, but he knows he isn't about to let himself be defeated by someone who just knocked out all of his friends. So he makes a declaration of immortal love to Rika and promises to be with her for eternity if she'll lend him every ounce of strength she has. This allows him to create a massive beam of energy that doesn't just take out Geto, but also destroys the Vengeful Spirit Tamamo-no-Mae Incarnate and the Maximum: Uzumaki technique that Geto created out of thousands of Curses.

Gojo Vs. Jogo
Before Gojo's showdown with the flame-spewing Curse, everyone knew he was powerful. But the full extent of his abilities don't become apparent until this fight. He uses a move called Infinity, which functionally makes him impossible to touch. By using his Cursed Technique Reversal: Red he's able to create enough energy to send Jogo flying.
Gojo eventually expands his Unlimited Void domain and forces Jogo to process so much information at once that his brain nearly shuts down. We're really glad we're not Jogo in this fight.

Itadori And Todo Vs. Hanami
After Hanami turns a competition between schools into a survival game, Todo and Yuji team up to try and defeat him. While Hanami is attacking with a range of dangerous Cursed Plants, Todo and Yuji combine punches, kicks, and Black Flash with Todo's Boogie Woogie technique. Boogie Woogie lets him rapidly switch places with a target of his choosing. By moving Hanami around, they're able to confuse the Curse while targeting their attacks.
Yuji might have thought Todo was a little weird at first, but now he knows that when things get intense, he can count on him in battle.

Itadori And Nobara Vs. Eso And Kechizu
This fight contains one of Nobara's greatest moments. After the Death Womb Paintings hit her with a poisonous attack, she's able to use her Straw Doll Technique: Resonance to transfer her pain straight to them. It's moment of triumph for her, and it plays a big part in the enemy's ultimate defeat.
But at the end of the fight, Nobara and Yuji have to contend with the reality of what just happened. This was Nobara's first time taking a life. While she isn't initially bothered by it, Yuji is. Though he's glad to have survived, he can't let go of the fact that others suffered because of him. It's a fight that goes from exhilarating to existential within minutes, and that's part of what makes it so great.

Itadori And Nanami Vs. Mahito
Though Yuji has plenty of motivation to annihilate Mahito after the Curse cruelly takes Junpei's life in front of his eyes, he's no match for him at first. Just before Mahito lands a fatal blow, Nanami shows up and saves him. The two have to deal with Mahito's constant transformations and attempts to trap them in his domain all while being forced to encounter the ruined bodies of people Mahito has transfigured. They're still alive, and they're begging Yuji to take them out. This horrifies him, and it makes it hard to focus on the fight.
In the end, it's neither Yuji nor Nanami who gets Mahito to scuttle off into the sewer - it's Sukuna, who shows off his might when Mahito dares make contact with his soul.

Megumi Vs. Finger Bearer
The clash between Megumi and the Special Grade Cursed Spirit containing one of Sukuna's fingers is probably the fight that best shows off Megumi's abilities. At first, Megumi is convinced that defeating the Curse is impossible, but once he's able to focus on his future potential instead of his current limitations, he's able to channel that future power and defeat the Finger Bearer.
By blending in with liquid shadows and summoning multiple Shikigami, he's able to avoid fatal blows and eventually land one of his own.
