Here is everything you need to know about Jujutsu Kaisen: Megumi’s Shikigami.
Eight-Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga
Eight-Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga takes its name from a class of divine entities in Japanese Buddhism. Mahoraga is the most versatile shikigami in the Ten Shadows Technique. It can effortlessly adapt its behavior based on the environment.
In other words, attacking the Mahoraga using a specific method ensures that it will never work again. This shikigami comes bearing a blade known as the Sword of Extermination. In addition, Mahoraga’s physical strength is off the charts, explaining why nobody has yet proved worthy of controlling this shikigami.

Divine Dogs are two identical wolves — one black, the other white. This shikigami pair works like ordinary tracking hounds. These two Shikigami were always summoned together, at least until the white version was slaughtered by a special grade cursed spirit.
However, fans were delighted to discover that the white dog wasn’t exactly dead. It could be summoned as a fusion with its twin.
Nue takes the appearance of an enormous bird with an extremely eerie mask and a set of humanoid teeth. This shikigami is one of the fastest entities in JJK. Megumi depends on Nue for multiple reasons — it can carry him and his friends to safety, and attack opponents on Megumi’s behalf.
If that’s not impressive enough, Megumi can fuse Nue and Toad, a technique known as The Well’s Unknown Abyss. This allows the toads to fly, although it makes them considerably weaker than the actual Toad shikigami. Nue has nearly died on several occasions, but its continued survival is a testament to this shikigami’s durability.
Arguably the largest shikigami at Megumi’s disposal, the Great Serpent was unfortunately decimated by Sukuna. This shikigami might never appear in the story again, but its accomplishments were nevertheless noteworthy. One of the best features of the Great Serpent was its rapid summoning time.
As useful as this was, the Great Serpent’s greatest asset had to be its curse destruction skills. While the other shikigami are also technically capable of deactivating curses, the Great Serpent’s speed and power made it a deadly addition to Megumi’s arsenal. Perhaps it will return as a fusion one day.

Max Elephant requires quite a bit of cursed energy to manifest, which is why Megumi only brings this shikigami out when absolutely necessary. Further, the physical “body” of Max Elephant doesn’t appear instantly, leaving Megumi at risk of taking enemy damage. Max Elephant takes the form of a pink elephant with markings all over its body.
While fans initially assumed that this shikigami would rely solely on brute force attacks, Max Elephant also spews a potent blast of water through its trunk, washing away any enemies in the vicinity. That said, Max Elephant’s gargantuan size comes in handy when Megumi battles Awasaka, who’s taken aback when the shikigami suddenly materializes above him.
