By now we have all witnessed the amazing wonders of Jujutsu Kaisen and how the world works with curses. While we know more about the good side, there’s less to say about the bad side. Suguru Geto, one of the main antagonists of the series, has been talked about ever since he made his debut in the manga and anime. As Jujutsu High’s amazing journey continues, we’ve rounded up ten facts about Suguru Geto spanning both manga and anime. So let’s get started!
Suguru Geto claimed to be an antagonist in both JJK series and Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Jujutsu High (series prequel). He was a student at Tokyo Jujutsu High and had experience in sorcery that rivaled Gojo’s. After a few shocking events in his life, Geto turned to the wrong side and killed over a hundred civilians in a single night. This action on his part led to him being expelled from Jujutsu High and gaining a reputation as the worst curse user of all.
Spoiler alert: The facts below contain information from both the Jujutsu Kaisen manga and anime. If you haven’t read the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, you are going to get huge spoilers. Enjoy the content.
1. Suguru Geto Called Unwizard Monkeys
Suguru Geto had a real hatred towards people who couldn’t use sorcery. Although we never see him get rid of regular humans in any other way, he usually calls them monkeys. His whole ideology was that wizards are superior to humans and part of the next stage of evolution.
The height at which he disliked humans was shown when he used to apply a spray to himself to disinfect “monkey stench”. His ideology confirmed that monkeys have two types, which could work for him. One those who give him money and the other who brings him curses. If they’re of no use to him, Geto would probably allow Curses to kill them without any worries.
2. Consider Curse users like family
While he disliked humanity, Geto was always considerate and loving towards curse users. He also confessed to considering them as a family, as an example calling his team of curses as a family. While at Jujutsu High, he was admired by many for his hard work in pushing his fellow curse users to a new level. While he was too kind to all jujutsu wizards, this act of kindness was always seen as an expression of a fake person.
3. Was one of the strongest in Jujutsu High
While at Jujustu High, Geto was considered one of the strongest in the school, aside from Gojou Satoru. Geto’s strength was so high that he was easily able to take down any opponent without breaking a sweat. His power ability was so strong that at one point in the manga, it was revealed that Geto was able to hold 2000 Cursed Units inside of him. One of the other reasons he’s also considered the strongest is that he was able to take down an entire village of over 100 humans in one night all by himself, which to be honest is no game of child.

4. Geto’s Unique Cursed Technique
Suguru’s Geto Curse Manipulation Technique is one of the most unique and incredibly powerful techniques in the JJK universe. This was one of the reasons why, as an antagonist, he was feared by many. The technique allowed him to absorb other viruses and make them his own. Another interesting technique he has is called Maximum Uzumaki. This technique allows him to gather all the cursed energy he has and convert it into a single attack. An attack like this can kill anyone with one hit.
5. Change of path for his ultimate goal
While many factors could have changed his mind about how his current ways were, during Gojo’s past arc we got to learn more about how and why he changed his ways. The death of Plasma Star Vessel Riko Amanai and how after that they were praised by the Star Religious Group. These qualities made one thing clear to Geto, that there was no hope for humanity. He began to develop a strong hatred towards non-wizards. This dislike slowly turned into hatred as Suguru continued to question how the Jujutsu corp exorcises curses just to save humans.
In Chapter 77 of the Manga, Suguru is seen reaching his breaking point when he finds two young women being abused by non-wizards. The two were none other than Mimiko and Nanako. Geto was so injured that he ended up killing all 112 villagers. It was then that he decided that wizards were superior to non-wizards and that killing non-wizards was the only path to evolution. His ideology behind it was to free all wizards from risking their lives to protect weak humans.
Humans are the source of cursed energy, but only curses and wizards can control cursed energy, while non-wizards cannot. He wanted to “address the cause” by killing all non-wizards. Geto’s ideas for evolution seem to be in line with Kenshuku’s current focus and may have caught his attention long before Suguru’s death.
6. Her unusual outfit
Suguru is a tall, slender man with long black hair partially tied behind his head while the rest drapes down his back. As a student at Jujutsu High, Suguru donned the traditional jujutsu high uniform. Later, after leaving the scene and committing many sins against mankind, Geto still believed himself to be a Buddhist priest and donned the appropriate attire. He matches the outfit with a gold kasaya garment over black yukata robes. His monk outfit also includes white tabi socks and zori sandals. Weird from a guy who kills several and compares himself to a monk, well that’s Geto for you.
7. Suguru’s Self-Made Army
Suguru’s curse technique “Curse Manipulation” is the largest and most powerful weapon in the character’s arsenal. Knowing that Geto can absorb a curse and then manipulate them into his own, the guy and composes his own army. If you think about it, Geto doesn’t need to find more people to join his team, and so he always works with a small group. Talking about the number of curses he can release, according to the manga, Suguru Geto can hold up to 2000 curses inside him, which is quite a lot.

8. Satoru Gojo’s Best Friend
Suguru Geto was one of the few people who knew Satoru Gojo as a very close friend. Geto grew up as Gojo’s rival, and the two made a promise to rise to the top of the Jujutsu world. The two pushed each other to be stronger, but Gojo proved to be more superior after unlocking all six eyes. Even though the two fought together and went on to claim a lot of accolades, their ideologies were completely different. While Gojo decided to save humans and exorcise curses, Geto wanted to use curses to finish off humans. So that’s why at the end of Gojo’s backstory, we see them go their separate ways.
9. Suguru Geto gets killed by Satoru Gojo
Well, it’s not in Jujutsu Kaisen but in Jujutsu Kaisen 0 where Suguru Geto meets his end. In order to gain a power to defeat Satoru Gojo, Geto decided to distract him by sending a wave of 2000 cursed spirits around Kyoto and heading towards Yuta, who had Rika’s power, which would be enough to defeat Gojo. But during the battle, Geto ends up blasting half of his body and finds himself confronted by Gojo, who delivers the finishing blow. It was noted that Geto died with a smile on his face.
10. Geto possessed by Kenshuku
In JJK’s manga, it was revealed that the Suguru Geto standing in front of the wizards was actually a corpse being controlled by Kenshuku. Although there is not much to say about him, but in Chapter 145, Master Tengen claimed that Kenshuku was a master of Barrier Techniques. Well, at least second to the likes of Master Tengen himself. Tengen also explains that his plan was to bring about the second “golden age of jujutsu”. With these notes, we can confirm that Kenshuku is over 1000 years old according to his wishes to Sukuna in chapter 136 of the manga. The chapter notes that Kenshuku makes a vow to Sukuna to revive the “golden age of jujutsu” of the Heian era.
