There is no doubt that Satoru Gojo contributed greatly to the global popularity of the series. After all, he has all the qualities that Shonen fans love: he’s a teacher, unparalleled in combat, has an eccentric personality, and is kind when it comes to helping anyone in need.
This week, Jujutsu Kaisen dealt a heavy blow to fans around the world. The highly anticipated battle of the strongest did not have the results fans expected. Gojo’s tragic death puts the future of the Jujutsu world in jeopardy.
Gojo admits his feelings of isolation and Sukuna is the only one who can understand it. Although this Chapter is extremely deep with implications, the conclusion is that Gojo admits that he is no match for Sukuna. However, Gojo does not seem to have died from Sukuna Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236.
Gojo’s thoughts on the final battle of life
Gojo admits Sukuna is much stronger than him. He said he used all his strength and years of training to fight, but it wasn’t enough. On the other hand, Sukuna is too strong for him. The cursed king had to fight him.
In fact, Gojo also said that he would lose to Sukuna even if she didn’t have Megumi’s technique. However, Gojo was happy that he did not die from illness but at the hands of someone stronger. He had fun fighting the Cursed King and felt satisfied when he used all his power for the first time.
How does Sukuna fare against Gojo in battle?
During the first round of the battle, Gojo and Sukuna both use their Domain Expansion at the same time. In Chapter 230, we see that Gojo has reached his limit after using Domain Extension five times. But Sukuna used it four times and his condition was much worse than Gojo’s.
Then, the second half begins, where Gojo brutally knocks out Sukuna in Chapter 232. However, Mahoraga soon appears from the shadows. It’s important to note that Gojo never lost consciousness in battle, but Sukuna did.
Sukuna needs help to kill Gojo in Jujutsu Kaisen
Throughout the battle, Sukuna never showed mercy. The two seem to be on equal footing, and there are brief moments where one dominates the other. Gojo truly believes he will win, and so does Sukuna.
Sukuna mainly relies on Mahoraga’s strength to deal with Gojo in the Jujutsu Kaisen. Compared to the superficial wounds that Sukuna inflicted on Gojo, only Mahoraga was able to cut off Gojo’s arm in Chapter 234. Mahoraga’s ability to adapt to any cursed technique is what makes the fight interesting. should be complicated from the start.
Gojo’s Infinity does not allow any attacks to reach him. Even the Cursed King has no way to overcome that barrier, which is why he needs Mahoraga’s power. Not to mention, the final attack that cuts alive the strongest witch can only be performed by Shikigami.
So it’s pretty clear that even though Sukuna is the main challenger in the fight, he needs Mahoraga’s power to win. Since the final attack was made possible thanks to Mahoraga, giving full credit to the Cursed King seems a bit far-fetched.
The only surprising thing Sukuna did was find a way to control Mahoraga, something no one in the Zenin Family had ever done. Since Gojo’s death did not appear on screen, many questions remain unanswered. Therefore, it is also difficult to determine how the final attack reached Gojo and why he did not see it coming.
