What Does Gojo’s HOLLOW PURPLE Mean in Japanese?

hollow purple written in kanjiJujutsu Kaisen

Hi, it’s Junko from Japan. Hollow Purple says KYOSHIKI MURASAKI in Japanese. The word MURASAKI stands for “purple.” Gojo Satoru has three Cursed Techniques for attacking. All of them are named after colors, and Hollow Purple is the strongest one.

In this post, I’ll explain what’s the original Japanese meaning of KYOSHIKI MURASAKI and how it works!

How to Say Hollow Purple in Japanese?

kyoshiki murasaki written in japanese kanji

KYO = empty, imaginary, hollow, void
SHIKI = formula, style
MURASAKI = purple

If I literally translate KYOSHIKI MURASAKI, it would be “void formula purple” or “void cursed technique purple.”

The last symbol MURASAKI isn’t common. Usually, we use this Kanji letter for purple, and I think it’s cool too.

In Jujutsu Kaisen, Hollow Purple is the secret technique only a handful of Jujutsu sorcerers in the Gojo family know its existence. Using an unordinary symbol may show how rare the technique is.

What Is Hollow Purple?

Hollow Purple is cast by combining the Cursed Technique Blue and Red. The Blue has the power to draw something into the void space while the Red repels everything. Gojo Satoru put these opposite powers together and creates a massive amount of void energy. Then Gojo pushes it out toward the opponent at high speed like a cannon.

How Strong Is Hollow Purple?

Hollow Purple is the strongest Cursed Technique Gojo uses. In manga and anime, the size of Hollow Purple seemed an invisible sphere with approx 40 ft. diameter and hollowed out forest in a wide range.

Here are the all techniques in order of attack power. It’s said the Red technique has at least the double power as the Blue.

  • JUTSUSHIKI JUNTEN AO (Cursed Technique Lapse: Blue)
  • JUTSUSHIKI HANTEN AKA (Cursed Technique Reversal: Red)
  • KYOSHIKI MURASAKI (Hollow Purple)

What Episode Does Gojo Use Hollow Purple?

Gojo used Hollow Purple in episode 20 of the Jujutsu Kaisen animation. In the manga, it’s in episode 52.
