Who is Stronger Than Gojo? The Strongest Sorcerer’s Rivals

By know, we already know that Gojo Satoru is the strongest sorcerer in the universe of Jujutsu Kaisen. We also already have a couple of blogs where we discussed how Gojo stands against characters in other animes/mangas. In this blog, let’s try to answer, who is stronger than Gojo in Jujutsu Kaisen? If you’re ready, read on!

Who is Stronger Than Gojo Satoru?

As of now, we can’t argue anymore that there is no one stronger than Gojo currently active in the Jujutsu Kaisen. He proves time and time again that his title of “strongest” isn’t just an empty claim he made at the beginning of the story. In fact, his very presence deterred the curse user. The whole underworld black market that consists of Curse Users lay low in fear of catching Gojo’s eyes. Furthermore, his threat alone carries enough weight for the whole Jujutsu Sorcerer Society, making him do as he wills, such as postponing the secret execution of Yuta Okkotsu and Yuji Itadori.

The creator himself, Gege Akutami, supports the claim that Gojo Satoru is the strongest. According to Gege Akutami in an interview, he created Gojo to be the strongest character and be easily distinguished.

Question: “Please tell us the background of the character’s (Gojo Satoru) creation.”

Gege: “I wanted to create the strongest character that could be easily distinguished.“

This statement from the author himself puts an end to the debate about whether there is anyone stronger than Gojo. But being the strongest doesn’t mean that he will be undefeatable. Gojo himself may be defeated at some point, allowing our protagonist to mature. We’ll just have to wait and see how the story plays out.

Who is Gojo’s Rival?

As the strongest Jujutsu sorcerer in the current generation, Gojo Satoru has the right to brag. In fact, Gojo really valued himself and thought that he had a special existence. Having that kind of mentality, he doesn’t believe that anyone is his equal, so he didn’t develop any sense of rivalry toward any of his peers.

Who is stronger than Gojo Satoru?

On the other hand, Suguru Geto views Gojo as a rival and someone whose strength he has to catch up to. That’s why he feels disheartened when the distance between their strengths widens after Gojo learns the Reverse Cursed Technique. As an exceptional Cursed Spirit manipulator, Gojo respected and trusted him enough to turn his back on him. But that is the limit, as Gojo didn’t see Geto as a rival.

Who Can Possibly Surpass Gojo?

Gojo is a special being that possesses the perfect synergy of two inherent techniques of the Gojo Family, Limitless and Six Eyes, which make him a force to be reckoned with. But there exist individuals who have the potential to surpass him, some of whom he nurtures himself. These are the individuals that can possibly surpass Gojo.

Can Itadori Yuji Be Stronger Than Gojo?

Itadori Yuji is the protagonist of the story. He is the body of Ryomen Sukuna, who is the King of Curses and a genius who comes along once every thousand years. He is very different from other people because he is stronger than most people without using Cursed Energy. According to Gojo, Yuji’s body will eventually learn and inherit the Cursed Technique of Sukuna, and we all know to some extent how exceptional Sukuna’s Cursed Technique is.

Is Yuji stronger than Gojo?

Yuji is also a genius among Jujutsu sorcerers because he has lived as a normal person for all these years and has only known about Jujutsu for less than a year, but he is now able to get rid of special-grade cursed spirits without using any cursed techniques, just by manipulating cursed energy directly. Yuji also experienced Black Flash, which is really hard to pull off, earlier than Megumi and Nobara, even though the latter came from a Jujutsu practitioner. With these qualities, Itadori Yuji has the potential to surpass Gojo in the future.

Can Yuta Okkotsu Be Stronger Than Gojo?

Yuta Okkotsu is the main protagonist in the prequel Jujutsu Kaisen 0. He is Gojo Satoru’s distant relative and the descendant of one of the big three vengeful spirits, Sugawara Michizane. Yuta has more cursed energy than Gojo and is adept at controlling it. Yuta can clad his whole body, including the Cursed Tool, in large amounts of Cursed Energy, making each attack he makes lethal and restricting the damage he receives to a minimum.

Is Yuta stronger than Gojo?

Adding to that is his mastery of weapons, especially a katana, which he learned directly from Maki Zenin. He also has a copy of the Special Grade Vengeful Cursed Spirit, Rika Orimoto, the Queen of Curses, that helps tip the tide of battle in his favor. Furthermore, Yuta Okkotsu is capable of copying any technique as long as he has a great understanding of it, earning him the title of Special Grade Jujutsu Sorcerer. He knows how to use weapons well, has a lot of cursed energy, a Special Grade Vengeful Cursed Spirit, and can copy Cursed Technique, all of which could make him better than Gojo.

Can Megumi Fushiguro Be Stronger Than Gojo?

Megumi Fushiguro is a first-year student at Tokyo Jujutsu High. He inherited the Ten Shadows Technique from the Zenin family. It lets the user summon and control up to ten (10) exorcised Shikigami. In the past, the heads of the Zenin and Gojo families killed each other in a fight for the aristocracy. The Gojo Family’s head is a wielder of Six Eyes and Limitless, just like Gojo Satoru. On the other hand, the head of the Zenin family possesses the same cursed technique as Megumi, the Ten Shadows Technique. This means that the innate technique itself has the potential to go toe-to-toe with Gojo’s.

Is Megumi stronger than Gojo?

But the problem is that in the history of the Ten Shadows Technique, no one has ever been able to get rid of Mahoraga, the strongest Shikigami he could call. It is so strong that Sukuna, with the strength of 15 fingers, has to activate his domain expansion to quickly end the battle since it will become more complicated as the battle goes on. Considering this, the head of the Zenin Family has not even managed to exorcise Mahoraga, yet he’s been able to go toe-to-toe with the head of the Gojo Family in the past, who has a similar technique to Gojo Satoru.

This means that on the off chance that Megumi Fushiguro manages to successfully exorcise Mahoraga and turn it into his commandable summon, he can possibly surpass Gojo. Furthermore, Megumi doesn’t just rely on his Shikigami but also fights head-on, just like Geto Suguru.

Can Sukuna (Incarnated) Be Stronger Than Gojo?

Sukuna used to be the most notorious human from a thousand years ago. He is neither a Jujutsu Sorcerer nor a curse wielder. After his death, he became a cursed object and turned into the curse he embodies (the demon god). And, because the legend of the Demon God is still feared today, Sukuna has been growing stronger over the last thousand years, so his full capabilities after incarnation are unknown, possibly even stronger than when he was still a human.

gojo vs sukuna

Like Gojo, his Cursed Techniques, like Dismantle and Cleave, are best for one-on-one and deathmatch fights. After consuming the remaining five fingers, Sukuna may be able to go against full-power Gojo, and since he is the manifestation of the legendary Demon God, he will continue to grow as long as he is feared.
