Can we all agree that we have a thing for strong and
good-looking older sidekicks, especially the ones with some sort of visual
prowess and wicked sense of humour? Because Gojo Satoru from Jujutsu Kaisen is
considered to be the coolest character at the moment for no other reason than
those mentioned boxes that he ticks. Let’s talk about the strongest Jujutsu
Sorcerer Gojo Satoru.
GOJO SATORU’S LIFE AND HISTORY :
The balance of power has shifted since Satoru Gojo was born
in 1989 and a bounty has been placed on his head. After his birth, bounty
hunters began to hunt him down. He’s the strongest Jujutsu Sorcerer in the
world, In fact, he has even rivaled and surpassed Sukuna the King of Curses in
terms of strength. Satoru, like most sorcerers, sought to protect the world
from the Cursed Spirits that plagued it; however, Gojo considered the Jujutsu
Sorcerers' structure to be flawed, and as such in order to improve it, he
became a teacher at Jujutsu High in order to train new generations of
sorcerers. During his student days, Satoru was incredibly confident in his
abilities and reputation as a powerful sorcerer, gullible in his assessment of
others, often only considering their strength, and rather apathetic towards
anyone he considers weak. The next thing he did, after mastering the reverse
cursed technique in his following battle against Toji Fushiguro, was to be very
arrogant, convinced that he was the strongest in the world, which he is. He
claimed "everywhere in Heaven and earth, only he is honorable." As he
fights in the heat of battle, Satoru occasionally falls into a frenzied
fighting state, spurred by his uncompromising determination for victory and
strong evidence that he is the strongest. In his combative style, he is
aggressively domineering and displays his mastery of techniques while attacking
However, Satoru is far more human than he appears at first
glance, despite his haughtiness and strength. Satoru managed to build genuine
friendships with Shouko and Suguru Geto despite his arrogance and god complex.
Despite his disapproval of Suguru's moral compass, he remained best friends
with Suguru. The first time in his life, he developed compassion for and
protection of "weak people" because of Riko Amanai. Even with his
previous arrgoance and conceit temporarily clouding his feelings of grief and
empathy over Riko's death, after defeating Toji, Satoru quickly felt once more
the sadness and regret he felt over failing to save her as he retrieved Riko's
corpse with a sorrowful look, uncharacteristically being somber through the
entire time and he was emotionally distraught to where he showed none of his
previous haughty demeanor when he contemplated killing the Star Religious
members that were laughing over Riko's death, simply stating that their
laughter disgusted him.
At the end of the day, Satoru's experience with Riko made a
significant impact on him, but in a completely different way than how they
affected Suguru. Unlike Suguru, whose moral compass turned him toward darkness
after watching the Star Globe ruthlessly mock Riko's corpse, seeing Riko's
selflessness and compassion allowed Satoru to abandon his old ways of
arrogantly thinking he was above having to protect the vulnerable, realizing
that his power makes him responsible to maintain the balance of the world by
protecting those who cannot defend themselves.
GOJO SATORU’S POWERS AND ABILITIES :
As the strongest jujutsu sorcerer within the jujutsu
society, Satoru Gojo earned this alias due to the abundance of cursed energy he
possesses. In contrast to most sorcerers, Gojo can utilize a Domain Expansion
multiple times per day while most people can only utilize it once. Besides
being one of the few sorcerers who can heal themselves using a Reverse Cursed
Technique, Gojo perfected this skill on his deathbed after his first fight with
Toji Fushiguro. Through this technique, he can not only heal himself, but also
make the positive energy flow into the Infinity, which gives him access to Red
and Hollow Purple attacks.
From a bare-bones level, ‘Limitless’ is an innate technique
derived from the Gojo family, which provides its users with absolute control
over space through cursed energy manipulation at an atomic level, in turn
leading to numerous subsequent results and abilities within the overall
capability. From Space manipulation as just the base level of Limitless, it
further progresses into 3 standard forms and 1 non-standard form. As the
neutral form of the Limitless, the Infinity is commonly called the capability
of stopping, although this is incorrect because the true power of the Infinity
is to slow things down. When something attempts to hit Satoru, the object will
instead strike the infinity between him and them.
The idea of infinity likewise factors into his signature
Cursed Techniques. Against Jogo, he deploys an attack he calls Cursed Technique
Reversal: Red, and later, in Episode 20, Gojo uses an ability called Hollow
Technique: Purple. These both rely on the manipulation of the concept of
infinity to manifest huge blasts of energy. Given that getting into the
mathematical weeds of how infinity can create large balls of power is likely a
fruitless task. Understanding Gojo's technique implicitly requires the viewer
to suspend some disbelief. Nevertheless, access to infinity is the general
basis for Gojo's immense power.
Gojo has also the power of Six Eyes or the Rokugan. Those
beautiful sky blue eyes are not just for show, my people. Rokugan, or Six Eyes,
describes a rare ocular jujutsu passed down by the Gojo family which provides
the user with exceptional abilities, most notably enhanced perception and the
ability to use the Limitless Cursed Technique to its fullest potential, but
despite the ability being inherited, Gojo remains the only sorcerer to be born
with both the Six Eyes and the Limitless Cursed Technique within the manga's
timeline, making him invincible.
WHY DOES GOJO SATORU WEAR A BLINDFOLD :
Because of the powers of both Six Eyes or Rokugan and Limitless,
using his eyes at all times, would tire him out too quickly. His eyes just work
too well. The power of Six Eyes shows cursed energy in way too much detail.
Even with his eyes covered, he can see everything very clearly. He can even see like high-resolution thermography when
wearing a blindfold and he can recognize things that don't have cursed energy,
such as buildings, through the residue and the flow of the cursed energy. Gojo
only takes off the blindfold when he wants to use Domain Expansion that can
trap someone inside the wielder's Innate Domain. In this space, their attacks
can't be avoided, pretty much assuring they win whatever fight.
HOW OLD IS GOJO SATORU :
The beginning of Jujutsu Kaisen is set in 2018,
which makes Gojo, being born on December 7 in 1989, 28 years old in the current
timeline. This applies to both the anime and manga’s current events.
