Appearance Toji Fushiguro
Toji is a tall, muscular man with mid-length straight black hair that reaches to his ears. His eyes are green, just like his son’s, and he has thin black eyebrows and a scar on the corner of his right lip.
For casual attire, Toji wears a simple outfit consisting of a long-sleeved shirt and matching pants with sandals. While fighting, Toji wears a tight fitting short sleeve shirt, sports tan baggy training pants with a black belt weaved through the waist and black martial arts slippers. While still a member of the Zenin family, Toji wore a dark colored haori over a black yukata.
Toji Fushiguro Personality
Toji is a cool headed, confident man who makes a living using his skills and does not sweat the small stuff. He appears to enjoy insightful conversation with others as long as it somehow pertains to himself and can trade witty banter with the highly sarcastic likes of Satoru Gojo.
Upon meeting, Satoru asked Toji if they had met before. Toji, on the other hand, reassured him that he was not the type to recall a random man either. In battle, Toji has a crazed expression as if he’s lost in the thrill of the fight, but he’s always maintaining a cool and calculated head and plotting his next move.
Toji is an assassin who’s garnered the name “Sorcerer Killer” and spends his time gambling between assignments from shady clients.
He married a woman and left her just as quickly, leaving his newborn child behind without knowing their gender and eventually forgot their name.
Toji even planned on selling Megumi to the Zenin family he had left behind, exploiting the young Megumi for the cursed technique he would eventually inherit.
Toji doesn’t question his client’s motives as long as the money is right and generally doesn’t do any extra work for free. He’s bold and dangerously calculated in his strategies, using his jujutsu knowledge to outwit even the most prophesized sorcerers.
This garnered him a reputation large enough to attract the attention of the wealthy Time Vessel Association for such an important job that could ensure their future. While he thought the religious members of the organization were crazy, he got along well enough with their middle man to invite him to eat.
As a non-sorcerer raised in the Zenin family who values cursed techniques above all, Toji is a man who has suffered due to the interests of the sorcerer clans in a very similar manner to Maki Zenin.
His evil actions result from his dejection towards the jujutsu world as he attempts to spite it. Born without cursed energy, Toji eventually left the Zenin family and married a woman, taking her name “Fushiguro”.
He sold their son to the Zenin family because he believed in young Megumi’s potential to be a real sorcerer, naming him “Megumi” because it means blessings.
Toji completed his final mission for the Time Vessel Association and should have cut and run when faced with a rejuvenated Satoru Gojo.
However, due to his disdain for the jujutsu world and the sorcerer families, Toji chose to try and cut down the most gifted sorcerer in the world as another way to spite them all.
Unfortunately, this pride cost Toji his life. Unable to look past his demons, he deviated from his natural instincts and ignored the uneasiness plaguing him during the fight.
Keeping up with his cold persona, Toji chose not to utter any final words at first. In his last moments, he thought of his ex-wife and their son, so he decided to tell Satoru that Megumi would be sold into the Zenin family in a few years.
This would eventually lead to Satoru becoming a close mentor for Megumi in the future as well as granting Megumi a chance to work as a jujutsu sorcerer.
Granny Ogami’s Séance Technique returned Toji’s soul from the dead, turning him into a walking manifestation of carnage. He would attack anything in his path, mostly focused on crushing the strongest opponent available.
While endangering his own son with this outburst of aggression, Toji chose to return to death by committing suicide to protect him. He also did so without ever revealing their connection to each other. Instead, with his final words, Toji expresses that he’s glad to hear that Megumi refers to himself as a Fushiguro instead of a Zenin.
Abilities and Powers Toji Fushiguro
Overall Skill Level: While Toji is technically a non curse user with no innate talent for jujutsu, he was one of the most elite fighters in the jujutsu world when he was alive.
With innate physical prowess far superior to all others in his path, Toji contended with the most dangerous and highly ranked jujutsu practitioners this era had to offer.
He defeated special grade jujutsu users on three separate occasions, one of which was a young Satoru Gojo, who was still considered a prodigy and one of the world’s strongest sorcerers at the time.
The other sorcerer who was considered the strongest at the time was the curse manipulator, Suguru Geto, who was effortlessly taken down by Toji along with several of his strongest cursed spirits. Toji referred to Suguru’s abilities as rabble compared to his own strength.
Toji used the jujutsu knowledge from the Zenin family and turned it against sorcerers, earning him the moniker of “Sorcerer Killer. During the Star Plasma Vessel Escort Mission, an assignment given to the two strongest sorcerers by Master Tengen, Toji was hired by the Time Vessel Association to assassinate the Star Plasma Vessel.
Toji was able to completely derail the escort through a series of tactical moves over a few days. This wore down the escort team and lured them into a false sense of security before he abruptly made his move.
Toji’s elaborate planning led to him successfully pulling off a surprise attack on a user of the prestigious Six Eyes, ocular jujutsu that grants god like perception.
Toji took full advantage of his lack of cursed energy, making him the perfect assassin thanks to his status as an “invisible man”. The culmination of all Toji’s talents allowed him to successfully defeat the Star Plasma Vessel’s escort team and assassinate the girl, completing his assignment while nearly killing both of Jujutsu High’s most blessed sorcerers in the process.
Toji was only defeated when he pitted his pure physical prowess against the literally infinite power of the awakened Limitless technique wielded by Satoru Gojo.
Even in the face of this power, Toji was able to create clever ways to combat the abilities of the Limitless that were known to the Zenin family. Only the secret Hollow Purple technique was powerful enough to put down Toji once and for all.
Yuki Tsukumo, another special grade sorcerer, found that Toji was the only case where a Heavenly Restriction has eradicated someone’s cursed energy completely.
By eliminating all cursed energy, Toji’s body was sharpened to the point where he developed a resistance to curses and could detect them with his highly refined five senses.
This also allowed him to dominate and utilize a cursed spirit capable of storing his wide arsenal of weapons. Yuki considered him to be truly superhuman and told Suguru that he shouldn’t be ashamed to have lost to him in a fight.
When resurrected by Granny Ogami’s Séance Technique, Toji’s body was able to overwrite her technique and acted purely on fighting instinct. At the start of his out of control rampage, Toji killed Ogami with a single blow and nearly beat grade 2 sorcerer, Takuma Ino, to death with his bare hands.
He also took on a special grade cursed spirit, Dagon, and single handledly dominated him. Dagon was a powerful curse that Maki and grade 1 sorcerers Kento Nanami and Naobito Zenin could not defeat together.
In comparison, Toji made exorcising Dagon look effortless, cementing his own status undeniably on the level of that of a special grade.
Shortly afterward, Toji confronted Megumi, and the latter compared Toji to a fully realized Maki. He also recognized Toji as a “monster” capable of taking out a special grade cursed spirit and assessed his shikigami were no match for him. If Toji had not chosen to sacrifice himself, Megumi, too would have been another victim of Toji’s rampage.
Master Weapons Specialist: The Sorcerer Killer is capable of employing a wide variety of weapons in battle. His entire fighting style is based around using weapons to substitute for jujutsu. He keeps a vast arsenal in his cursed spirit, allowing him to efficiently switch weapons out based on necessity.
Toji has used non-cursed tools such as swords to perform a sneak attack, so no cursed energy will be detected. Armed with a normal handgun, he’s also an expert marksmen with extremely precise aim.
The Sorcerer Killer can counter jujutsu users because he is also a master of wielding cursed tools. He’s used a cursed tool broadsword to counter and slice open giant cursed spirits.
Toji has employed knives and daggers, sometimes one in each hand. Additionally he employs his special grade cursed tool: The Inverted Spear of Heaven with a mastery worthy of that ranking. He could capitalize on the dagger’s powerful nullification technique to negate even the most powerful sorcerer’s abilities.
Toji successfully complements his physical gifts with high adaptability and dexterity with all his weapons. By attaching a chain to the Inverted Spear of Heaven, Toji changed his entire fighting style to suit a long ranged battle.
When he first confronted Dagon, Toji took Playful Cloud, a weapon that Megumi stated was difficult to use, from Maki and used it to its maximum potential.
Enhanced Senses: Thanks to his Heavenly Restriction, Toji’s lack of cursed energy resulted in his five senses being heightened to their absolute peak.
He was able to see curses and jujutsu with just his elevated senses and even developed a resistance to them. This also allowed Toji to track sorcerers without the use of residuals, as he was able to follow human footprints and odors.
Immense Strength: Toji possesses a superhuman degree of physical strength, enough so to effortlessly yank Playful Cloud from Maki’s hands, another person with great physical gifts.
Using Playful Cloud, a tool that depends on physical strength, Toji was able to easily smash through Dagon’s hardest shikigami. With another cursed tool, he was able to cut through Suguru’s toughest curse, and used his bare hands to beat Takuma Ino’s face so badly he almost died.
Immense Speed and Reflexes: Toji has been noted to have superhuman speed, so much so that his opponents can’t read his moves. He could dodge Satoru’s cursed technique Lapse: Blue, completely avoiding the field of attraction before Satoru even realized it.
Megumi also stated that Toji was ridiculously fast, even faster than Sukuna with three fingers. In their fight, Toji could avoid a point-blank stabbing attack despite getting his foot caught in Megumi’s shadow, thanks to incredible agility and reflexes.
He also stated that seeing Toji while he moves is near impossible and was impressed his speed rivaled that of Sukuna’s without cursed energy.
Toji’s speed was enough to easily counter Suguru’s curses in exchange. He quickly avoided Suguru’s Rainbow Dragon by moving on top of a building despite the swift curse in front of him.
His reflexes were also quick enough to counter Kuchisake Onna’s scissor blades, which were already so close to him that they cut his flesh when he first noticed them. As soon as Suguru came in close range, Toji cut him and the Imaginary Vengeful Curse down in a flash.
Inside Dagon’s Domain, Toji was so fast that he could run on water like it was nothing, shocking the special grade. He only got faster as their fight went on, allowing him to plow through the endless stream of shikigamis with ease.
Great Tactical Intellect: When it came to his assignments, Toji approached his missions with careful calculation, caution, and patience. Toji has retained a plethora of information from being a member of the Zenin family, including understanding the workings of the Limitless and the Six Eyes.
Using this information, Toji could plot out a way to slowly wear down Satoru and his escort team. With connections to the curse user community and funds from the Star Religious Group, Toji put a bounty on the Star Plasma Vessel’s head.
By posting it on a website for curse users with a time limit, evil sorcerers flocked to collect the bounty. He knew they’d be unable to win, so this was free labor, a smart way to use his resources.
The time limit also worked in his favor, luring Satoru into lowering his guard once the mission was over. Once Satoru deactivated the Infinity, the Sorcerer Killer immediately acted and only then jumped in to fight the sorcerer directly.
Toji is clever in battle and quick to analyze his opponent’s abilities. He correctly assumed Suguru’s technique early in their battle. He quickly recognized his Kuchisake Onna’s ability within her Domain.
He also came up with several ways to counter Satoru’s limitless in their final bout. When he was brought back by Ogami, Toji instantly created a theory that was correct on how exactly he was able to keep his individuality despite his technique.
