I previously made a post on the Top 10 strongest jujutsu kaisen characters, well here is the top 5 smartest characters in the anime since jujutsu kaisen features not only powerful characters but also intelligent ones.
So here is my list:
Kento Nanami is not only smart but also very wise. He often appears calm and indifferent in stressful situations, but his stoicism is merely a product of his ability to separate his emotions mainly from his work.Kento Nanami is very practical and never does more work than necessary to accomplish a job. His hatred of working overtime has made him highly efficient, and he can analyze a situation quickly to find the best path to a resolution. His Ratio Technique is reliant upon precision strikes and demonstrates his keen attention to detail which also makes him able to cause weak spots on his opponent’s body. He takes his position as Itadori Yuji’s mentor very seriously, and in their time together, proves himself to be an intuitive teacher and talented sorcerer.
The principal of Kyoto Jujutsu High, Yoshinobu Gakuganji acts like a frail old man, don’t be fooled there is more to him than meets the eye. In reality, Yoshinobu is a shrewd and cunning sorcerer whose devious mind more than overcompensates for his relatively weak body. He is adept at manipulating others to do his bidding, such as when he used both Curses and his own students as tools to try to eliminate Yuji Itadori during the Goodwill Event.
Yoshinobu can quickly analyze and rate his opponents merely by observing them, ensuring that he never puts himself into a situation that he cannot overcome. So yeah he does deserve the 4th spot.
Being a doctor at Tokyo Jujutsu High, Shoko Ieiri is a former classmate of Satoru Gojo and an accomplished sorcerer. She is one of the few sorcerers who can use the reversed healing cursed technique, making her an invaluable asset and worthwhile comrade.
Although she is depicted as being rather gloomy and jaded, Shoko is still extremely intelligent and capable. Her ability to use the reversed healing cursed technique is a testament to her skill and the amount of time she dedicated to mastering her abilities. Shoko may not be on the front lines fighting Curses, but her value cannot be overstated. That places her on the 3rd spot.
A special grade jujutsu sorcerer and teacher at Tokyo Jujutsu High, Gojo Satoru is not only one of the most powerful sorcerers alive, but he is also extraordinarily intelligent. Although he acts playful and carefree with his students and friends, deep down he is a cold and calculating individual.
Gojo has a very tactical mind and is able to quickly predict and adapt to his opponent’s strategy. His ability to control everything around him while also minimizing damage to himself and others points to his immense powers of analysis and is one of the reasons why he is considered the strongest sorcerer. I know many might disagree with Gojo being number 2 on the list but let’s see who tops the list.
So here is our topper, while he may not be able to match Satoru Gojo in terms of cursed energy, Aoi Todo is one of if not the smartest characters in the series. Claiming to have an IQ of 530, Aoi has an innate understanding of jujutsu and can totally analyze his opponents’ movements in mere seconds. For example, he teaches Yuji how to control his cursed energy within minutes of meeting each other. Then, he is able to immediately synchronize their attacks tactifully while fighting Hanami despite the two having never fought together before.
His Boogie Woogie Technique appears simple, but it’s very difficult to use in combat, yet he can harness its full potential on both offense and defense. Aoi is not merely smart, he is also philosophical, preferring to be his authentic self rather than scheme for power or pretend that he’s something he’s not.
So there you have it, the top 5 smartest Jujutsu Kaisen characters, if you know anyone that deserves any of the spot above and wasn’t listed, Please go ahead and make it known in the comment section.
