All you need to know about the Shikon Jewel in Inuyasha

“All the important details about the Shikon Jewel in Inuyasha.”

The Shikon Jewel, also known as the Jewel of Four Souls or the Sacred Jewel, plays a crucial role in the anime series Inuyasha. It is a highly sought-after jewel desired by demons and protected by humans. Its power can transform a demon into a human, but its misuse can lead to its destruction. The story follows a young girl named Kagome who accidentally loses the jewel’s shards and teams up with Inuyasha, a half-demon, to retrieve them before they fall into the wrong hands.

The Shikon Jewel consists of four souls: the wild soul, harmonious soul, wondrous soul, and fortunate soul, derived from Shinto philosophy. While the four souls together have the potential for good or evil, in this world, the jewel is predominantly used for malicious purposes.

The jewel was created centuries ago by a powerful priestess named Midoriko, who could purify the souls of demons. In her final battle against evil demons, she trapped their collective souls within her own heart, which became the Shikon Jewel. Only two humans, Kikyo and her reincarnation Kagome, possess the spiritual power to purify the jewel.

Kikyo protected the jewel until she was deceived by a demon named Naraku, resulting in her death and Inuyasha’s imprisonment. Naraku, controlled by the demon within the jewel, manipulated events to corrupt the jewel with their hatred. Eventually, Kagome shatters the jewel into shards, and it becomes a sought-after prize by various beings.

Throughout the series, the shards of the jewel grant incredible powers to their bearers but cannot grant wishes like the complete jewel. The shards offer enhanced physical and spiritual strength and possess unique abilities, such as enabling travel through the bone-eaters well or transforming the bearer into a demon.

In the final battle over the jewel, Kagome and Naraku are drawn into it due to previous wishes made upon it. Inuyasha enters the jewel to rescue Kagome, and together they realize that the only way to end the conflict is to wish for the jewel’s disappearance. Kagome’s selfless wish fulfills the desire for peace, and the jewel vanishes, releasing Midoriko’s soul and purifying the trapped yokai. With the destruction of the Shikon Jewel, the saga surrounding it comes to an end.
