Nobara Kugisaki is one of the protagonists of the horror series Jujutsu Kaisen. It will not be an exaggeration to say that her choice of weapons is extremely special. A very big reason why the show is gaining popularity is greatly due to its interesting and crazy characters.
Adapted from the manga of the same name created by Gege Akutami, Jujutsu Kaisen largely deals with dark themes. The show was launched in the fall of 2020, but it didn’t take long for it to land its spot among the top anime.
How is Nobara Kugisaki like?
Nobara is a Grade 3 Jujutsu Sorcerer who is a confident woman and knows exactly what she wants. Her personality is a middle ground of Yuji Itadori, who is a goofy brat and Megumi Fushiguro, a rather serious person.
Her equipment consists of a Straw doll, Rubber mallet, Nails and Hammer, which is considered quite unique by the fandom. She can be relatively sassy during battles to her opponents. Even while on the verge of death, she is brave and belittles her enemies.
Jujutsu Kaisen’s Nobara Kugisaki powers
Even though she is a Grade 3 sorcerer, her skills are remarkable enough to be promoted by Aoi Todo to Grade 1. Her combat skills are excellently showcased when using her four signature weapons.
Her Straw Doll Spell is used to take down opponents without physically combating them. She also uses her other weapons to perform this technique, by shooting the nails when hitting them with her hammer. Resonance and Hairpin are also one of her Innate techniques that she hugely depends on.
The former is performed by linking her Straw doll to the curse and the curse experiences everything the doll does. The hairpin technique is used to spread the nails on hard objects and then eradicates them to control the environment.
