The Jujutsu Kaisen series’ Gojo is a fan favorite. What is it about him that makes him the series’ most powerful sorcerer?
Gojo Satoru is undoubtedly one of the most popular characters in shounen. Fans soon fell in love with Gojo’s character when Jujutsu Kaisen premiered in the Fall 2020 season, and he became the show’s poster child.
His enormous might as the greatest sorcerer in the Jujutsu Kaisen universe is what makes him so alluring. Here, we’ll look at what makes Gojo so powerful and whether or not he’s a little too powerful.
Little info about the story
Itadori Yuuji enrolls in a Tokyo Jujutsu High after becoming Sukuna’s (a powerful being in Jujutsu Kaisen Universe) vessel in Jujutsu Kaisen. Along with his classmates Megumi and Nobara, he studies to become a sorcerer there.
To work as a sorcerer, one must be able to see cursed spirits and possess high levels of cursed energy in order to use special techniques. The job entails tracking down and removing curses that threaten the lives of ordinary people.
Gojo is introduced in the first episode of the Jujutsu Kaisen. The audience soon finds out that gojo is a comic but the strongest character of Jujutsu Kaisen as he fights one of the strongest beings, Sukuna, with ease.
So, what distinguishes Gojo as the best sorcerer?
Explanation of Gojo’s Abilities
Gojo Satoru possesses extremely rare and unique abilities, but it can be challenging to understand how they work. Fortunately, Gojo’s abilities can be explained using his inherited technique, Limitless.
On a basic level, Limitless gives the user complete control over space by utilizing cursed energy.
The neutral and most basic version of Limitless, Infinity is Gojo’s power to slow down everything that gets close to him. This capacity, however, may be altered, resulting in a variety of ways.
Cursed Technique Lapse is the first technique. Limitless has been improved in Blue.
Blue is the outcome of Gojo boosting Limitless with bad cursed energy. As a consequence, the power to generate negative space is gained, leading matter to be drawn inside and fill the void.
Cursed Technique Reversal: Gojo’s following method is Red, which is the polar opposite of Blue. Gojo created Red by using a reversal method on the cursed energy that was used to create Blue, resulting in the opposite outcome. On the other hand, red produce more space, causing matter to reject.
Purple Hollow Technique, Gojo’s secret technique: Purple is an unusual color combination of red and blue. Positive and negative space combine to generate a singularity, causing an ‘imaginary mass.’ Consequently, an unstoppable orb emerges, wiping out everything in its path.
What makes Gojo the most powerful sorcerer?
Gojo is the first Gojo sorcerer in 400 years to be born with both Limitless and Six Eyes. At the same time, Limitless serves as the foundation for Gojo’s powers, Six Eyes tenfolds his abilities while lowering the amount of cursed energy required for his techniques to nearly nothing.
He’s the ideal storm for eradicating curses because of his astronomically unusual combo. On the other hand, Gojo could only play Cursed Technique Lapse: Blue with Limitless and Six Eyes alone.
At best, the technique could only produce tremendous gravitational pulls comparable to a black hole. Gojo developed the exceedingly difficult skill of reversing cursed energy to repel matter.
Cursed energy is by definition negative since it is born of bad emotions and can only do harm.
Positive cursed energy may be produced and utilized to heal by increasing bad energy. Gojo employs this extremely rare technique to create Cursed Technique Reversal: Red by inverting Blue.
Due to Six Eyes, Gojo can maintain a permanent barrier of Infinity around him for a tiny amount of energy. Gojo cures himself with good energy at the same time to relieve the physical strain of continually employing Infinity.
Gojo not only has a wide range of unique abilities, but he also possesses a large quantity of cursed energy.
It’s no surprise that he’s the strongest jujutsu sorcerer, given his incredible physical strength, intellect, and agility.
Is Gojo a little too powerful?
Gojo Satoru’s incredible power allows him to blast away foes easily, which provides some thrilling moments. It may, however, make confrontations quite predictable, reducing much of the excitement and stakes that make shounen conflicts so thrilling.
The universe of Jujutsu Kaisen seems to be aware of Gojo’s overwhelming overpowering. Like All Might in My Hero Academia, Gojo’s mere existence has driven many curses underground, fearful of being exorcised.
In the presence of Satoru Gojo, even the most powerful cursed spirits are rendered impotent. In episode 5 of Jujutsu Kaisen, Jogo, a special grade cursed spirit, was destroyed.
However, it seems that Jogo and his allies are working together to eliminate Gojo. It is unknown what the strategy is, but it will pose a significant threat to all Jujutsu sorcerers if it is carried through.
