Yuta Okkotsu, JJK 0's main protagonist and major supporting character in Jujutsu Kaisen anime is a special grade sorcerer cursed by Rika Orimoto, his childhood friend. Okkotsu is recruited by Gojo Satoru as a Tokyo Jujutsu High first-year student after he learns about the tragedy. Along with Toge Iumaki, Maki Zin, and Panda, he trains Okkotsu at Tokyo Jujutsu High.

The movie did not mention Yuta's first appearance in JJK. In the first anime season, he was the first to be mentioned. In Episode 5, season 1, Panda mentioned that Inumaki was a bit more gentle when Yuta is present. Mappa Studios adapted creator Gege Akutami's chapters that focused on Itadori Yuji. The JJK manga series' first chapters, however, had been released before this. They were all about Yuta Okkotsu, later adapted to a prequel movie. In Episode 6, Gojo stated that Yuta Okkotsu and Hakiri, a third year student at JJK had the "potential to be special-grade sorcerers equal with him**.

Yuta was able to make his debut in the Jujutsuverse with a solo movie. Yuta was thus made a star of the show. Yuta Okkotsu, a second year student and special-grade Jujutsu Sorcerer at the moment. He's currently not living in Tokyo. Miguel, who Gojo is fighting in JJK 0, has been his training partner in Africa. Fans couldn't catch him at the Jujutsu Kaisen events.

Yuta's Powers Origin

Yuta Okkotsu was born with the power and ability to control his powers after Rika Orimoto, his childhood friend, died. He was cursed because of her love and loyalty to him. Yuta eventually gains her overwhelming power from Rika Orimoto, the Queen of Curses.

Yuta was initially unable to manage Rika's power. He also felt isolated from the rest of his family. Yuta didn't want anyone to suffer (and tried to kill himself), explained the manga. Yuta learned close-quarters combat from Maki Zenin after Gojo had taken him under his wing. Yuta then used the ring Rika gifted him to imbue his cursed energy in that sword, making it powerful. Yuta gained confidence as he met new people, became more social, and was the best version of him.

Later in the story, it was discovered that Yuta wasn't cursed by **Rika. It was actually the reverse. Yuta cursed Rika accidentally because he could not accept his friend's death. Gojo revealed to Yuta that he is part of a Jujutsu family and related to Michizane Sugwara, who is considered one of the most important jujutsu wizards of all time.

Gojo Satoru is also a descendant from the Michizane family, which makes Yuta his distant relative. Everyone can see that Gojo Satoru's clan excels in jujutsu and their prodigies have immense potential.

Yuta OKkotsu: Abilities and Powers

Yuta Okkotsu has a variety of cursed energy methods and many ultimate Jujutsu Kaisen powers. We will focus on the main powers and characteristics he has as far as the anime is concerned. Here is a list of his powers and abilities:

**** Infinite Cursed Energy ****

Yuta Okkotsu has a lot of cursed energies**. We can safely assume that he will never run out during fights. He is a member of a strong clan and has a lot of energy. He also has Rika's ultimate powers. Combining both of these incredible abilities, he was able to create a tank inside himself that is full of an inexhaustible supply of cursed energy. So when it comes to cursed energy, no one in the jujutsu world can compete with him, not even his master Gojo Satoru (one with the blindfold).

Copy Cursed Techniques

Naruto's Kakashi hatake (The Copy Ninja) has been seen before. You also admired his Jutsu copying skills using the Sharingan. Yuta Okkotsu is now in Jujutsu Kaisen to challenge Kakashi. Yuta is able to copy cursed techniques without any extra tools or power. He is able to replicate techniques of other jujutsu wizards, which must be considered one his strongest and most valuable traits.

Okkotsu can copy any cursed technique that he sees**, and can do it easily again even though the technique was created for a particular person or clan member.

It was seen for the first time in Jujutsu Kaisen's 0 film during the Yuta-Geto Suguru fight. Yuta used Inumaki’s cursed speech to her advantage, even though the technique was only passed on within the Inumaki clan. Yuta is now a master sorcerer and has one of the greatest abilities.

Reverse Cursed Technique

This unique technique allows Jujutsu Sorcerers transform negative energy into constructive energy. Reverse cursed techniques may be used for healing and disintegrating cursed spirits. It is primarily used to heal. It is a very simple technique that can be used for healing. Even Gojo had trouble with it initially.

JJK 0 - Yuta and her friends are severely injured by Geto in the movie. Okkotsu saves the friends with Rika's help and begins to heal them by using the reverse cursed method.

Summoning Arms

Yuta Okkotsu also has the amazing ability to make anything you want. With Rika's assistance, he can summon weapons or objects. This was only shown once in the movie when Rika summoned a megaphone with the Inumaki clan symbol "Snake and Fangs". Rika asked him for it and used it to increase the cursed speech's power against cursed spirits. This cool ability will be shown in manga and anime, as well as the possibility to make weapons.
