Jujutsu Kaisen has been making a lot of ruckus on the internet as the second season of the adventures of Gojo Saturo and his gang continues. With Yuji Itadori having eaten several fingers of Sukuna, the hunt for more fingers and how long Itadori can take continues.


Comparing Kaisen to other anime, My Hero Academia seems to be among the most popular series out there Talking about the powers of certain characters between the two anime, Jujutsu Kaisen wins by a mile as one particular character in the anime simply doesn’t know when to stop!


Jujutsu Kaisen Character Wins In Terms of Power Against My Hero Academia

In terms of manga and anime adaptations, both Jujutsu Kaisen and My Hero Academia seem to have performed exceptionally well. Although since JJK is a recent series, the animations are better than Boku No Hero.


Comparing the two series, there is an equally bad antagonist for both the lead heroes. With Mahito beating Itadori and Shigaraki fighting Deku, the bad forces are ready for an all-out battle. However, which of these villains has the higher power? Based on their powers, the creators of the mangas have created a very specific skill set of rules and within those rules of battle, Mahito from Jujutsu Kaisen emerges victorious.

As per the reports, Gege Akutami, the author and creator of Jujutsu Kaisen allowed the character of Mahito to go crazy and inflict physical, mental, or emotional damage to his opponents (case in point, Gojo Saturo). On the other hand, Kōhei Horikoshi, the writer and illustrator of My Hero Academia has set a certain boundary for the character of Shigaraki. Shigaraki is held back by the author so that he doesn’t do any kind of long-lasting damage to anyone deemed important (aka plot armor?).


Within these set rules of inflicting damage upon others, Mahito from Jujutsu Kaisen is the clear winner as the character has already fought with Gojo Saturo numerous times and has often emerged victorious.
