Where Did The Image Of 'Thukuna' Come From? The Jujutsu Kaisen Meme About Sukuna Explained

The Jujutsu Kaisen fandom refuses to let the internet breathe between each new Lobotomy Kaisen meme it deploys on the general internet populace, and the image fans have dubbed as "Thukuna" may be the new Doman Expansion. Thukuna is how a person with a lisp may say the name Sukuna if they have a lisp.

But Thukuna bears little resemblance to the JJK character he is based on. In fact, his wild expression barely serves to distract from the main physical attribute distinguishing him from Sukuna; a distinct lack of teeth. Here's where the image of Thukuna originated, and how it became such a big meme online.

Where Did The 'Thukuna' Photo Originate?

While it is unclear who exactly photoshopped a frame featuring Sukuna to remove more than half of his teeth, it's safe to say that the earliest known use of the image was an October 7th, 2023 post by TikToker @satorugojodayo. Unfortunately, the same post may also be the first time someone has ever "gosuku'ed" all over the place.

How Did The Image Of 'Thukuna' Spread Online?
