Gojo vs Ichigo: Who Would Win? Battle of Superhuman Powers

Despite having their own unique elements, we cannot deny that Jujutsu Kaisen and Bleach possess a lot of noticeable similarities. In fact, Gege Akutami admitted in an interview that he is a huge fan of Bleach and that it definitely influenced him as a mangaka. From the protagonists to the power system, Jujutsu Kaisen seemed like a modern take on the classic shonen formula.

This time, we will answer the most common question among shonen fans which is, “Gojo vs Ichigo: Who would win?”

Curses and hollows are essentially two sides of the same coin. They are born out of negative human emotions, but they are not visible to ordinary people. Just like Ichigo who is half hollow, Itadori is also half a cursed spirit because of Sukuna who is residing in his body. Apart from that, Domain Expansion and Bankai basically work the same way with only some nuances.

Due to their similarities, it is not surprising for the two characters in these series to be pitted against each other. If you’re ready for this hypothetical matchup, read on.

Gojo Satoru: The Undisputed Jujutsu Sorcerer

Gojo Satoru, regarded as the strongest jujutsu sorcerer in the series, is one of the most popular characters in Jujutsu Kaisen. Sure, he is currently sealed in the Prison Realm as of writing, but that’s because no one else is strong enough to defeat him head-on. Gojo sits atop the power hierarchy as he is the only one who possesses both the Limitless and Six Eyes.

These techniques give him vast perception and tremendous brain processing power that allow him to see cursed energy in great detail. As such, he can easily read his opponent’s movements and see things from miles away. Not only that, but Infinity also provides him with an invisible barrier that makes him literally untouchable. Gojo Satoru absolutely overpowers everyone else in the series.

Ichigo Kurosaki: The Ultimate Hybrid

Ichigo Kurosaki used to be an ordinary teenager with an innate ability to see spirits until he met Rukia Kuchiki, who turned him into a substitute soul reaper. Later in the series, it was revealed that Ichigo is actually a soul reaper, Quincy, and hollow hybrid. With the range of his abilities, it is no wonder that Ichigo is considered one of the strongest characters in Bleach.

On top of that, Ichigo is shown to have an immense amount of spiritual energy that far exceeds those of other soul reapers. He can effectively use his Bankai and Getsuga Tenshou even when he is already worn out in battles. Ichigo’s Bankai, Tensa Zangetsu, proved to be powerful enough to eliminate Yhwach, the son of the Soul King. As a part-Quincy, he can also absorb vast amounts of Reishi in the atmosphere, making him such a powerful and formidable opponent in battle.

Physical strength

In terms of raw physical prowess, Ichigo is definitely far superior to Gojo. He can blow up mountains and destroy Aizen’s Kurohitsugi with only his bare hands. He’s already strong enough as he is, but when Ichigo turns into his hollow form, his abilities become even more enhanced that Gojo might not make it out alive in a hypothetical one-on-one battle. Moreover, Gojo’s Infinity will be useless because Ichigo can cut through dimensions. He can easily bypass Infinity by using Gran Rey Cero, a powerful technique that can distort space and time.

Ichigo and Gojo may be on par in terms of speed, with Ichigo only slightly superior to Gojo. Why? Ichigo is already quick and agile even before learning Shunpo, but he became even faster after mastering it. Shunpo is a movement technique that allows him to move as fast as lightning and more than the eye can follow. Ichigo can even dodge Candice’s lightning attacks that come with the real speed of lightning. On top of that, his speed becomes even more enhanced when he transforms into a hollow and uses his true Bankai. Gojo is also as fast as the speed of light, but Ichigo has more feats that prove his incredible speed.

In terms of technique, Gojo has the upper hand since his abilities are more versatile. His cursed techniques can be modified and used differently to adapt to the situation at hand. Of course, his abilities will be useless if not used properly, but luckily, Gojo’s tactical intellect allows him to effectively utilize cursed techniques to his advantage. It is more impressive to think about how Gojo learned to use the Reverse Cursed Technique for the first time while he was on the verge of death. His quick thinking and determination are also one of his best assets. On the other hand, Ichigo also has a lot of powerful techniques, but most of them depend on his sword, which is why he falls flat when it comes to flexibility.

Ichigo is not only a superhuman; he’s also a hybrid of shinigami, Quincy, and hollow, which is why he has superior durability compared to Gojo. His hollow transformation alone grants him tremendous durability. Plus, Ichigo can use Blut Vene, an advanced Quincy technique that provides the user with inhuman durability.

On the other hand, even though Gojo has Infinity as an invisible barrier, it is deemed useless to Ichigo since he can cut through it using various techniques that can distort space. Gojo can use the Reverse Cursed Technique to continuously regenerate, but Ichigo is also capable of healing himself, so no matter how you look at it, Ichigo definitely wins when it comes to durability.

Gojo vs Ichigo: Ichigo wins


Ichigo Kurosaki is far superior to Gojo Satoru in many aspects, so we strongly believe that he would win in a hypothetical one-on-one fight against Gojo. Still, they have their unique abilities, and who knows? Gojo might pull off something new that may give him an upper hand. After all, both characters are still growing in power as their respective series progress. All we know is that Gojo vs Ichigo will be an epic fight if ever that happens.
