Let it be known that I have a thing for characters like Gojo Satoru. And it isn’t just because they are so ridiculously strong. It’s just how effortlessly cool Gojo can be that gets me. And I know I’m not the only one. The man has been peak anime husbando material ever since Jujutsu Kaisen went into publication. And the anime has only made the thirst worse. Why? Because we got to see all that power and attitude in action.
But when you’re the Gojo Satoru, being OP is your birthright. Quite literally. As part of the Gojo family, he had the chance to inherit either the Limitless technique or the Six Eyes jujutsu, and he ended up inheriting both. That’s partially why he’s regarded as the most powerful Jujutsu Sorcerer in the world at a ridiculously young age. But then he also has insane amounts of cursed energy, is named a Special Grade, and is infamous amongst curses for his skills. Gojo isn’t just all smoke and mirrors, he’s genuinely too powerful for words and he is well aware of his skills.
I mean, I’ve brought this up before, but Gojo reminds me of yet another white-haired mentor figure with a rare eye-based power: Kakashi Hatake from Naruto Shippuden. And he, too, was immensely popular amongst fans for both his incredible skill and wit that directly opposed his more laid-back attitude. Characters like Gojo and Kakashi are such an intriguing addition to any anime. It isn’t just about power with them. Tons of characters in Shonen are overpowered as hell, that’s just the name of the game.
What makes the likes of Gojo and Kakashi stand out, are their personalities. They are fleshed out and complex while maintaining this air of aloofness. And that’s why fans love them. The whole ‘being better than the rest’ bit? That’s just a bonus. But a bonus worth discussing in today’s Character Analysis! Today, it’s the invincible Gojo Satoru, the strongest character in Jujutsu Kaisen!
Limitless: So Strong, It Breaks The Laws Of Physics!
I mean, there are a lot of things that add to Gojo Satoru being as powerful as he is but the most impactful of them happen to be the powers he inherited. And he happens to be the only person in 400 years to have mastered both powers simultaneously. But in a way, both Six Eyes and Limitless work best in tandem.
The Limitless technique is just that – it’s the ability to literally bend space at will, stretching it into the concept of infinity. Think a Domain Expansion, but no holds barred. Gojo can manipulate space in the same way convergences work in maths. Where there is a finite space between two objects, Limitless can multiply that to infinity. How? Well, you can technically divide a number by the nth degree and never reach 0. It might break down into near-impossible digits, too small to be fathomed, but it’ll never be fully 0. And that’s the same concept.
No matter how much someone tries getting into the infinitely divided space, they won’t ever reach through. Not before they slow down to the point where they basically stop existing altogether. It’s the mother of all barriers. The only thing that can break its hold, is the user. Maybe it can be countered by Domain Amplification or disturbed by a Cursed Object strong enough, but it’s unlikely.
Six-Eyes: The Gojo Family Trait!
While Limitless is an amazing ability to have in your arsenal, you can’t access its full potential without the Six Eyes. And there can only be one user of Six Eyes at any given time. Luckily, Gojo happens to be that person.
Six Eyes is an ocular jujutsu that enables its user to have insane brain processing powers with a heightened perception overall. What this does is allow the user to break abilities like Limitless down to their very atomic potential. The vast perceptions help them be aware of multiple things at once, using the complexity of the technique to their best advantage.
So, it’s easiest to think of Six Eyes as an auxiliary technique, helping their bearer utilize each of their traits at their maximum potential. It even helps with Gojo’s immense cursed energy reserves, processing the energy itself so efficiently that he will never run out.
No wonder Gojo is strong, he’s operating on a totally different level!
