Jujutsu Kaisen: Yuta Cursed Speech Explained

In Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen, all the sorcerers use different cursed techniques. The cursed technique wielders can use these techniques owing to their respective lineage and encounters with cursed energy. As such, Cursed Speech is an inherited technique that is special to the Inumaki clan. Toge Inumaki, given his inheritance, has been known to use this technique in the series.

However, aside from Jujutsu Kaisen 0, in chapter 178 of the manga, Yuta Okkotsu was seen using the Cursed Speech, putting fans in a frenzy. But before understanding how he can use the technique, one needs to understand what Cursed Speech is.

The technique can empower the user’s verbal commands with cursed energy. Hence, whoever the command aims at has to comply with it. For instance, if the wielder commands the opponent to halt, the opponent will be compelled to stop their movement.

To activate Cursed Speech, one needs to have particular seal markings, which are called Snake Eyes and Fangs. These markings could be either on the wielder’s cheeks and tongue, or they could use a cursed tool with these markings, and it would work depending on the skill level of the wielder. 

How did Yuta have Cursed Speech?

Yuta Okkotsu using Cursed Speech is in accordance with his cursed technique “Mimicry”. Using this technique, he can mimic the cursed techniques used by other sorcerers. As it happens, Yuta uses this technique to copy Toge Inumaki’s Cursed Speech using a cursed tool, displaying his overwhelming curse energy levels. The fact that he does not even face any resultant backlash proves his extraordinary prowess.

Moreover, Yuta goes on to harness multiple copied cursed techniques, all at the same time. While he has a fully manifested Rika, Yuta swiftly combines Cursed Speech with Dhruv Lakdawala’s cursed technique and defeats Ishigori. Owing to his status as a Special Grade Cursed Jujutsu Sorcerer, Yuta is undoubtedly one of the most powerful and versatile sorcerers in the series.
