Eight-Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga, also known as Mahoraga, is one of the ten shikigami of the Ten Shadow Technique used by the members of the Zenin family. It is considered the strongest shinigami of all and also the most uncontrollable. If you’re wondering why this is so, it’s because no user of the Ten Shadows Technique has managed to tame it in the history of the Zenin Clan.

It has a large, strong humanoid body that can easily overwhelm anyone at first. It looks more like an evil boss, doesn’t it? This shikagami is remarkable because it can adapt to any phenomenon or situation, which makes it special. Below you will find all the information you need to know about this Shikigami’s abilities.

How does Megumi summon Mahoraga

If you remember, the user of the Ten Shadows technique (in this case, Megumi) must create a shadow puppet (like we did as kids) to summon the Shikigami. But in the case of Mahoraga, the user has to do that clench their fists, raise their hands and say out loud an incantation to summon this gigantic figure. A user of the Ten Shadows technique must say the following words:

‘With this treasure I call Eight-handled sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga

In Japanese it goes like this: “Nufurubebe Yuyura, Yuyura, eight hands of swords, alien gods, generals, Maakura” (Furube Yurayura Yatsuka-no-Tsurugi Ikaishinshō Makora).

Remark: The rule of the Ten Shadows technique is that you must first tame the Shikigami. Only after you tame him can you summon the Shikigami in question. However, there is a hole in this rule that the user can take advantage of, namely by summoning it before taming it. But that will result in an unfavorable situation. Nevertheless, users of the Ten Shadows Technique can summon it at any time to dispel it by performing an exorcism ceremony. Such is the case when Megumi summoned Mahoraga without taming him beforehand.

In addition to his incredible physique, Mahoraga has some serious powers and abilities. That makes it the most powerful Shikigami in existence. They are as follows:

  • Superior physique: As previously mentioned, Mahoraga has a more advanced physique that can knock down anyone with physical attacks. For example, Mahoraga sent Sukuna flying with a single punch, which also resulted in Sukuna flying through several buildings. That’s exactly how this body benefits the monster.
  • Sword of extermination: In addition to his incredible physique, Mahoraga possesses a sword on his right hand. It is called the Sword of Extermination, which has positive energy wrapped around it. This sword wielded by Mahoraga can be of great help in battle.

  • Amendment: The most important skill in Mahoraga’s arsenal is the Adjustment Technique. This allows the Shikigami to adapt to any situation it faces. In attack, if it initially fails to break through a defense, it can adapt to it later. In his defense, if he is injured by a specific attack, the wheel at the top will spin, allowing him to adapt to it. Therefore, if an enemy tries to use that specific attack against them, Maharoga can now easily counter it.

Is it possible to beat Mahoraga?

Well, the Zenin family has been very unfortunate that no user of the Ten Shadows technique has ever tamed this beast. But without a doubt it is possible to beat Mahoraga. This was an incredible feat reached by Sukuna in the Shibuya incident arc.

Sukuna came up with a brilliant strategy to counter Mahoraga’s adjustment technique, and he emerged victorious in that battle with his pyrokinetic abilities. [SPOILER] We also see Gojo Satoru perform this feat when we see him fight Mahoraga in his heated battle Gojo vs. Sukuna battle.

And that’s all we know for now about this legendary Shikigami. We hope we have been able to explain everything about this monster with examples. In the meantime, tell us which of the Mahoraga’s abilities you like in the comments below.
