Kenjaku is one of the most mysterious characters in Jujutsu Kaisen. His evilness knows no bounds, but very little is known about his past except for a handle of people whom he had possessed. While Yuta Okkotsu destroyed Suguru Geto’s body, he is currently without a host. No one knows his location and what his true motives are.

Even though the powerful curses like Mahito, Jogo, Dagon, and Hanami were with him, none knew about his true motives. But there is another person who might have known about his plans all along. His name might come as a surprise to the Jujutsu Kaisen fans, but it holds significant ground as a fan theory. That person is none other than Yuji Itadori’s father, Jin Itadori.

Jin Itadori Might Have Known Kenjaku’s True Motives

Jin Itadori is Yuji Itadori’s father. Very little is known about him in Jujutsu Kaisen. Fans believe that he might be the one to know the full extent of Kenjaku’s plan. Before taking over Suguru Geto’s body, Kenjaku controlled Kaori Itadori’s body. Kaori Itadori died before conceiving Yuji Itadori. But after Kenjaku took over her body, Yuji was conceived.

Yuji Itadori might be part of an experiment, which Jin Itadori was well aware of. He knew Kenjaku possessed Kaori and struck a deal with him. Since Kaori was dead before bearing any children, Kenjaku might have told Jin that he would experiment. The result would benefit them both. Jin would get a son, and Kenjaku would get the results of his experiment.

The thought of getting a son made Jin forget about all the evil motives of Kenjaku. So, even if Kenjaku had told him about his true motives, he remained unbothered. It was a win-win situation for both. An agreement between the two is a very likely event to have happened in the past.

Jin Itadori Connects Binds Several Jujutsu Kaisen Fan Theories Together

Jin Itadori knowing Kenjaku’s true motives in Jujutsu Kaisen might be the answer to several fan theories. In the beginning, Yuji Itadori was an ordinary kid but had superhuman strength. He was as fast as an Olympic sprinter and held weights without any problem. Itadori even subdued the King of Curses without any Cursed Energy.

Fans believe it might be a result of Kenjaku’s experiment. It made Itadori more potent compared to a normal human being. Kenjaku has the notorious title of being the most evil sorcerer in Jujutsu history, and one of his evil works included the nine Death Womb Paintings. Even though Yuji Itadori was not one of those, he was still experimented on.

It may explain why Choso found a connection with him. Jin Itadori knew everything but kept his mouth shut due to the agreement. Yuji Itadori’s grandfather, Wasuke Itadori, had warned Jin to stay away from Kaori, otherwise he may die. Wasuke Itadori sensed something evil from her, but Jin neglected his father’s word.

It may all happen due to the Yuji Itadori being born. While it is still a fan theory, it is pretty interesting to think that out of all the powerful sorcerers in Jujutsu Kaisen, Jin Itadori is the only one who knew Kenjaku’s ultimate plan. But until Gege Akutami decides to reveal everything, it will remain a fan theory.

Jujutsu Kaisen can be streamed on Crunchyroll.
