Toji or Gojo: Who is Stronger? The Most Anticipated Faceoff

Toji Fushiguro and Gojo Satoru’s face-off is one of the most anticipated fights in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2. For the first time, someone managed to bypass Gojo’s Infinity and almost killed him in the process. It makes you wonder how strong Toji really is to fight toe to toe with Gojo. So in this article, we will answer the question, “Who is stronger: Toji or Gojo?”

Toji or Gojo: Everything You Need to Know

Toji and Gojo’s first encounter occurred during the Hidden Inventory Arc. Gojo, together with Geto, was tasked to escort the Star Plasma Vessel safely to Master Tengen. However, the Time Vessel Association was against this mission, so they hired Toji Fushiguro, widely known as the Sorcerer Killer, to interrupt them.

Toji carefully planned his course of action—he knew better than engaging with Gojo and Geto head-on. He temporarily placed a bounty on Gojo’s head so that other sorcerers would hunt him down and exhaust his energy. Surprisingly, Toji’s plan worked. Gojo was eventually worn out after fighting multiple sorcerers who came after him, forcing him to turn off Infinity for a while to recover.

Gojo vs Toji

Of course, Toji did not waste any time and took the opportunity to attack Gojo. He pierced him with a long sword while the strongest sorcerer was off-guard. Gojo didn’t anticipate the attack because Toji had no cursed energy to make his presence known. During their fight, Gojo was also surprised by Toji’s agility and superior physical prowess. He had a difficult time reading his moves; hence, Gojo was overwhelmed by Toji during their first fight.

Toji or Gojo

While Gojo was on the verge of death, he had an awakening over the true nature of cursed energy. He learned to use the Reverse Cursed Technique to heal himself and came back even stronger. When he faced Toji for the second time, Gojo used the newly awakened powers of Limitless that allowed him to overpower the Sorcerer Killer and finish him once and for all.

What makes Toji so strong and dangerous in battle is his wit and tremendous physical strength. Despite having zero cursed energy, he defeated many sorcerers using raw speed, strength, cursed tools, and carefully planned tactics. But in all honesty, Toji may not be as strong when faced with higher grade curses, particularly those who can use Domain Expansion. The only reason he won against Dagon during the Shibuya Incident was that Megumi already disabled the guaranteed hit of Dagon’s Domain Expansion. Still, Toji has a lot of impressive feats that make him worthy of the title Sorcerer Killer.

Toji’s Abilities

Toji was one of the most elite fighters in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen despite being a non-curse user with no innate talent for jujutsu. He was even on par with some of the most dangerous and highly ranked jujutsu sorcerers in his era, owing to his innate physical strength much superior to all other sorcerers.

Tremendous Physical Strength

Toji possesses superhuman physical strength that makes up for his lack of cursed energy and inability to use cursed techniques. During the Shibuya Incident, he was able to effortlessly smash through Dagon’s toughest shikigami using Playful Cloud, a cursed tool that relies on the raw strength of its user. He also managed to slice Geto’s dragon-like curse in half using only a longsword cursed tool, and almost beat up Takuma Ino to death using his bare hands.

Immense Speed and Reflexes

Toji is known for his superhuman speed, making it difficult for his opponents to read his moves. Megumi also mentioned that Toji is incredibly fast, even faster than Sukuna with three fingers. He also noted that it is almost impossible to see Toji when he is on the move and that Megumi was impressed that Toji rivaled Sukuna without cursed energy in terms of speed.

Weapon Expert

Toji is highly skilled in using a wide variety of weaponry during battle. His overall fighting style revolves around the use of weapons to replace jujutsu. He uses a cursed spirit wrapped around him as a weapon inventory, allowing him to efficiently switch weapons in the middle of a fight.

Enhanced Senses

Due to his Heavenly Restriction and lack of cursed energy, Toji’s five senses are sharpened to their utmost peak. He is capable of seeing curses and jujutsu with only his increased senses and even acquired resistance to them. He can also track sorcerers even without using residuals since he can follow human footprints and scents.

Tactical Intellect

Toji carries out his missions with careful consideration, planning, and caution. He is quick to assess his opponent’s weaknesses and come up with ways to use it against them. When he was hired by the Time Vessel Association to intervene with the Star Plasma Mission, Toji devised a strategy to bypass Gojo’s Infinity instead of attacking him head-on.

Being the only one who possesses both the Limitless and Six Eyes, Gojo is definitely the strongest sorcerer in Jujutsu Kaisen. As a teen, he can already outclass many other sorcerers and single-handedly defeat cursed spirits. Even when he was completely worn out, teen Gojo was able to hold off Toji Fushiguro during the Star Plasma Incident. After his power awakening, he was able to finish off Toji as soon as the fight began. Most importantly, Gojo was the one who altered the balance of the jujutsu world simply by being born with both the Six Eyes and Limitless, which means that he already possessed immense power since birth.

Gojo’s Abilities

Immense Strength

What episode does Gojo fight Jogo?

Gojo is shown to have immense physical strength that was best demonstrated during his fight with Jogo and Hanami. He beat up Jogo with powerful punches and hurled him far away with a single kick. He also managed to rip out Jogo’s head and arm with brute force, and he easily ripped out Hanami’s roots as well.

Hand-to-Hand Combat

Gojo is highly skilled in close combat as a result of having tremendous physical strength to back up his techniques, in addition to his enormous amounts of cursed energy. He could easily overpower both Jogo and Hanami alone in close combat, effortlessly deflecting their attacks and landing powerful strikes after another.

Immense Speed and Reflexes

Gojo is capable of moving faster than the human eye can perceive. During their fight, he outpaced Jogo without much effort, throwing barely detectable punches and kicks. He is also capable of annihilating thousands of transfigured humans in five minutes.

Tactical Intellect

Gojo abilities

Gojo is a skilled tactician who can anticipate his opponent’s strategy with very little information. He has also demonstrated great adaptability to different kinds of opponents, knowing exactly what to do to counter their strategies and seek ways to defeat them. During his fight against Jogo, Hanami, Choso, and Mahito, Gojo was shown to be capable of devising different tactics while fighting at blinding speed, protecting bystanders, and reducing property damage, all while evading and dodging the four curses’ attacks.

Who is Stronger: Toji or Gojo?

Why is Gojo scared of Toji?

Gojo is definitely stronger than Toji even as a teen. If they were to have a one-on-one fight, Toji would be eliminated in an instant. The only reason why he “defeated” Gojo during their first fight is that Gojo was severely exhausted and has been fighting against multiple curse users for days. Still, he managed to overpower and defeat Toji right away as soon as he recovered. If Gojo was in his best condition when Toji first attacked him, I doubt that Toji would stand a chance.
