Megumi Fushiguro, who is, incidentally, one of the most popular characters in the Jujutsu Kaisen series, is also often discussed among the fans of the series. He is a complex character with an intriguing story, and there are a lot of things that can be said about him, especially in light of Sukuna possessing his body recently, but we are going to go back in time in this article, as we are, once again, going to talk about Megumi’s relationship with his father, Toji. Namely, after killing Toji, Gojo goes to Megumi to tell him about his father. And while he implied what he did, he did not finish his story as Megumi interrupted him. So, does Megumi know that Gojo killed Toji? Keep reading to find out.
Megumi, probably, knows that Gojo is the one who killed his father, Toji, although this has never been explicitly confirmed or denied. Namely, it was implied to Megumi that Gojo took care of his father, but Megumi never cared for Toji, so he never bothered to find out. Being as intelligent as he is, he probably figured it out at one point, but he never explicitly heard it from anyone, but knowing how the story has evolved from that moment on, we can assume that he has, in the meantime, connected all the dots.
The rest of this article will focus on Megumi Fushiguro and his relationship with his father, Toji, which was briefly addressed in the most recent episode of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, as well as with his mentor, Gojo. Due to the numerous connections that exist between the three, this Megumi’s relationship with his father is of vital importance for the series, which is why we will tell you everything you need to know. Be careful, though, as the article will be filled with spoilers.
Megumi was never explicitly told the whole story, but he probably deduced everything later on
The story of Toji and Megumi is a rather complex one and is not the ideal family story you’d imagine. Toji was born into the Zenin family, but with a Havenly Restriction that left him with zero cursed energy. Rejected by his family for having this condition, he simply abandoned them one day. This was especially ironic since the Heavenly Restriction gave Toji other superhuman abilities which made him exceptionally strong, but his family did not attach any value to it; many think that Toji could have slaughtered his whole clan had he wanted to and that them surviving was just a lucky coincidence for them.
After departing, he became a gambler and a professional sorcerer assassin. But, at one point, when he was much younger, he actually met the young woman who would become his first wife during this time; her last name was Fushiguro (her first name was never revealed). After they got married, Toji gave up his Zenin name and adopted hers, becoming Toji Fushiguro. He seemed to care a lot about her, as he gave up both gambling and his job to be wit her. Soon, Megumi, the couple’s only child, was born, and Toji’s memories show him actually being quite happy because of that. Also, it has to be mentioned that Megumi had a high propensity to manifest cursed energy.
And while Toji seemed to be happy for once in his life, his wife died suddenly at one point, and he was left alone with Megumi. The old Toji came back instantly, and Megumi became neglected quite fast, as Toji did not care much about him. During this period, he even met with Naobito Zenin to tell him that he would sell his son to the Zenin family if the boy’s cursed energy manifested itself at a later time, which his family happily accepted. As you can see, Toji did not care much for Megumi, and we can actually confirm that Megumi cared very little for Toji as well.
Megumi cared a lot about his mother, but he grew up without a father, basically. He had to take care of himself and his step-sister, who was actually the child of Toji’s second wife and was not related to Megumi directly (this is Tsumiki, in case you did not know), but his father wasn’t there. When Gojo wanted to tell him about Toji, he said he did not care and that he barely remembered the guy, which was actually more true than not. The fact is that Megumi really did not care about Toji; we could easily say that he hated him, and we wouldn’t really be wrong there. That is why he did not care about his fate, which is an important fact to know before we go to the main part of this story.
Namely, we know that Satoru Gojo ended up killing Toji Fushiguro, despite losing to him the first time. Gojo used his amazing skills and killed Toji with relative ease, after which he asked Toji whether he had any last words. Toji told him that Megumi would be sold to the Zenin family and that Gojo could do what he wanted with that fact. He then died.
Not long after these events, Satoru Gojo approached a young Megumi as he was coming back to school, with Tsumiki eagerly waiting for his return. He stopped him and told him who he was, how he knew him, and that he knew his father. But, just as he was about to tell him that he killed Toji, Megumi stopped him and told him that he did not care for “the guy.” Gojo stopped and told him that if he ever wanted to know more about his father, he should ask him, as it was an interesting story. He then promised to take care of him.
So, did Megumi ever ask him? No, he did not. Megumi never cared about his father nor did he bother to find out more about him, so he never actually asked his mentor about what happened to him. Did he find out? Well, not explicitly, as no one really told him, but he did not care about it either. Seeing how he told Gojo that he got the picture when he stopped him from explaining further, we assume that Megumi managed to deduce what happened to his father with time and that he eventually connected all the dots.
This is why we believe that Megumi does know that Gojo killed Toji, but since he never cared for Toji, he also never cared about that fact either. This was, sadly, never confirmed explicitly in the story and we cannot state with absolute certainty that this is true, but knowing how intelligent Megumi is and how his story evolved over time, it would be silly to assume that he couldn’t really connect all the dots, especially since he knows a lot about the jujutsu society and its history. This is why we think that it is more likely that Megumi knows about this than that not, and that is the premise that this article is based on.
