Over the past few chapters, Jujutsu Kaisen fans have finally got to experience the battle between the strongest characters in the series- Ryomen Sukuna and Satoru Gojo. After an intense back-and-forth fight where it looked like either of them could win, chapter 236 of the series finally brought this to a devastating conclusion.
What Happened since Gojo was Unsealed?
One of the biggest twists of the Shibuya arc saw Gojo, who was seen to be insurmountable, be sealed in the prison realm after getting tricked by Kenjaku. After a 3 year wait, fans finally saw the strongest Jujutsu Sorcerer escape towards the end of the Culling Game Arc.
While many fans were questioning his mental state after spending an extremely long period of time in isolation, Gojo put the theories to rest as he immediately charged at Kenjaku and Sukuna while showing off his powers.
Following this, Sukuna, who now possesses Megumi Fushiguro’s body, and Gojo set December 24th as the date when they will have their deciding fight.
Who Killed Satoru Gojo?
In latest Jujutsu Kaisen chapter, the powerful sorcerer Satoru Gojo was killed by the cursed spirit Ryomen Sukuna. Though Gojo was considered nearly invincible, Sukuna managed to outsmart and defeat him through clever strategy and exploiting Gojo’s few weaknesses.
Fans were shocked by Gojo’s death, as he was one of the strongest and most popular characters in the series. However, his death serves an important narrative purpose, raising the stakes for protagonist Yuji Itadori and removing a key ally as the threats in the story escalate. Gojo’s absence leaves a power vacuum in the jujutsu world that evil forces can exploit.
How Did Gojo Die?
Many did not believe that it was actually possible for Satoru Gojo to die, but Sukuna was able to find an ingenious method to pull it off. While it was believed that his reliance on Maharoga during this battle was a move made out of desperation, and he also faced a lot of criticism from the fans for this, it turned out to be the deciding factor.
With each hit that Maharoga took, it was able to analyze Gojo’s limitless technique quicker and with more efficiency. This created a manual for Sukuna on how to overcome his ability.
After this completely suited his need, Sukuna was able to unleash a slash that could cut through infinity, space and the world itself while causing Gojo’s inevitable death. It is also implied that Sukuna was not using all his powers and he still had many other things up his sleeve to defeat Satoru Gojo.
Hence, the man who was considered to be unparalleled in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen finally met his end.
Can Gojo Come Back to Life?
While Gojo has died, it brings in the question of whether he can be brought back to life. We know that it is not impossible for a character who has died to come back to life in Jujutsu Kaisen, as seen in the case of Toji Fushiguro. As a beloved character and one of the most powerful jujutsu sorcerers, his resurrection would excite many fans. There are several narrative pathways the story could take to bring Gojo back:
- Reversed cursed technique – This mystical ability has healed injuries before, so it may be able to restore Gojo from death’s door. His immense power could let him overcome limitations other characters face.
- Reincarnation – Some unofficial translations reference Gojo rediscovering himself, tying into Buddhist reincarnation concepts. This spiritual rebirth could revive Gojo with new abilities.
- Intervention by allies – Characters like Itadori, Yuta, and Kenjaku might find ways to free Gojo’s soul and restore his body. Their arcane knowledge could unlock a resurrection ritual.
- Alternate timeline Gojo – Some fans theorize the story could travel to another timeline where Gojo is still alive. This would reunite readers with a version of the character.
While uncertain, these possibilities give hope. Gojo’s return would shake up the jujutsu world and reignite the action-packed battles that captured fans’ imaginations. Only time will tell if this powerful fan-favorite cheats death
