Gojo’s Strategy Against Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen and the Important Lesson He Learned

Since the conclusion of the epic clash between Satoru Gojo and Ryomen Sukuna in chapter 236 of Jujutsu Kaisen, fans have been immersed in numerous discussions about various elements of the fight. One question that continuously arises is whether Gojo truly unleashed his full power against the King of Curses during their intense confrontation.

During his airport afterlife sequence, Gojo shocked many fans by commending Sukuna and admitting that he likely would not have been able to defeat him even without the use of the Ten Shadows technique.

Despite lingering doubts from certain fans, it’s crucial to acknowledge the pivotal event in the Shibuya Incident arc that ultimately taught Gojo a valuable lesson: to never hold back or hesitate when facing his adversaries.

Jujutsu Kaisen: Satoru Gojo’s Valuable Lesson from the Shibuya Incident Against His Opponents

The events of the Shibuya Incident arc caused a sudden and unforeseen upheaval in the Jujutsu world. Kenjaku’s sealing of Satoru Gojo in the Prison Realm resulted in the chaos of Cursed Spirits attacking both humans and sorcerers.

It goes without saying that Gojo being sealed is the worst-case scenario for the Jujutsu sorcerers, as it is widely known that the entire country of Japan would be consumed by darkness if it were to actually occur.

Despite being aware that the Shibuya station was a trap set for him, Gojo still confidently entered it alone. However, he never expected the Cursed Spirits to overpower him, especially in a direct confrontation. In fact, he single-handedly defeated around one thousand transfigured humans in just 299 seconds.

Despite his own emotions and feelings towards his former best friend, Suguru Geto, it was ultimately Gojo’s downfall. Unbeknownst to him, the ancient sorcerer Kenjaku had possessed Suguru’s body after his death. This resulted in Gojo being temporarily immobilized and thrown into a state of shock.

Despite Gojo’s attempt to recover, he soon realized that he had fallen into Kenjaku’s trap. He found himself trapped within the Prison Realm, as memories of his late best friend flooded his mind and led him into the trap.

Despite considering all possible methods the villains could use to gain the upper hand, Gojo never imagined they would go to the extreme of using Geto’s body as leverage. The shock of Geto’s reappearance was amplified by the fact that Gojo had killed and buried him himself.

Ultimately, it was Gojo’s emotions and hesitation that led to his downfall in the Shibuya arc. When he was unsealed, Gojo took on the weight of responsibility for the events in Shibuya, blaming himself for not being more careful. From then on, it can be assumed that Gojo would be more cautious in letting his emotions control him.

Given the uncertainty of the time that had elapsed for Gojo in the Prison Realm, it is probable that he dedicated most of his time to strengthening his emotional and physical weaknesses. This was evident in his increased strength and wisdom upon his release.

It is clear that he remained calm and collected even when Sukuna, who had taken over Megumi’s body, attacked him. It is also likely that in the month preceding their epic showdown, Gojo had devised a strategy to not only rescue Megumi but also defeat Sukuna once and for all.

On the other hand, he may have also been ready to eliminate both Sukuna and Megumi if the circumstances demanded it. In addition, Gojo confidently declared that he could give his all in the fight, as he was aware that Sukuna was possessing Megumi. He assured that he would attend to Megumi’s well-being once he dealt with the King of Curses.

Thus, it is evident that Gojo did not hold back in any way against Sukuna and put forth his utmost effort to defeat the King of Curses. While Gojo undoubtedly had strong feelings for Megumi, it is improbable that he would make the same mistake of allowing his emotions to hinder the task at hand.

The Shibuya Incident served as a lesson for Gojo, highlighting the dire consequences that even the smallest error or hesitation could have on both the world and himself. Therefore, it is clear that during his fight against Sukuna, Gojo did not hesitate to take the King of Curses’ life, even if it meant sacrificing Megumi in the process.
