Satoru Gojo ( () (じょう) (さとる) Gojō Satoru?) is one of the protagonists of Jujutsu Kaisen. He is a teacher at Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College.

Appearance

Satoru Gojo is a tall man, towering over his students, and is apparently considered attractive by many women. He has white hair that's often spiked up, but Gojo lets it down when he's in more casual attire. Gojo has bright blue eyes, but they're usually covered by his signature black blindfold or a pair of dark sunglasses.

While working, Gojo wears an all-black high-necked jacket with matching pants and dark dress boots. In the past, Gojo has worn bandages over his eyes rather than his simple blindfold. He has several different casual attires that usually include long-sleeved shirts and slacks. He even wears long-sleeved hoodies to the beach with black swim trunks.

Personality

Satoru is a complex individual. He is usually nonchalant and playful towards people such as his students, (close) colleagues, and friends, but unsympathetic and cruel with people such as the sorcerer executives. He is very confident in his abilities and reputation as a powerful sorcerer, casually dismissing personal threats from Sukuna by saying that he could trounce the King of Curses. In a crisis, Gojo is capable of being cold-blooded. He will prioritize his enemies' destruction over saving innocent people when he thinks that the sacrifice is unavoidable. However, this only extends to the people killed by his opponent; Gojo will not do any lasting harm to or kill anyone innocent to gain the upper hand.

Abilities and Powers

Satoru Gojo shows off his overwhelming power.

Overall Skill Level: Satoru is said to be the strongest sorcerer in the series, holding both immense amounts of cursed energy and a dangerously powerful technique. He has also demonstrated himself capable of utilizing the Domain Expansion technique.

Immense Strength: He possesses great physical strength to fight against powerful curses without a problem, delivering powerful punches and throwing Jogo a considerable distance with a single kick during their fight.

Satoru's immense speed.

Superhuman Speed and Reflexes: Satoru is a speedy fighter, managing to follow the movements of Jogo effortlessly and throwing almost imperceptible punches and kicks. He was shown to be able to move faster than the eye can perceive. Satoru can also eliminate a thousand transfigured humans in five minutes.

Tactical Intelligence: Gojo is quite tactical and capable of figuring out his opponent's plan with minimum information. He has also shown to be extremely adaptable to any enemy he has ever faced so far, knowing precisely what to do to counter their techniques and find ways to defeat them.

Jujutsu

Cursed Energy Manipulation
Immense Cursed Energy: Satoru Gojo is known within jujutsu society as the strongest jujutsu sorcerer. He earned this alias due to the superhuman amounts of cursed energy he possesses. Gojo's cursed energy is vast enough to use a Domain Expansion multiple times per day. In contrast, most sorcerers can only use it once.

He has excellent control over his cursed energy, capable of activating his Domain in a split second, use reverse cursed techniques, and even combines positive and negative cursed energy. Gojo is also known to have two overarching abilities, being the first in one hundred years to have both the Six Eyes and the Gojo family's Limitless cursed technique.

Inherited Technique
Satoru Gojo activating Red and Blue.png Limitless (無下限 Mukagen?): At the base level, Limitless is an innate technique which is derived from the Gojo family. Having been naturally inherited, this technique works via precise manipulation of space at the atomic level, resulting in multiple subsequent results and techniques within the overall ability. With the manipulation of space as just the base level of the technique, Limitless has three standard and one "non-standard" form beyond this.
Infinity (無限 Mugen?): Being the neutral form of the Limitless, the Infinity is commonly known as the ability to stop, although this is a common misconception as the true power of the Infinity is to slow things down. When something attempts to hit Satoru, the person or object in question instead hits the infinity between himself and them. According to Satoru, this is the convergence of an infinite series and comes straight from the paradox of Achilles and the tortoise. Akin to the way Achilles will never catch the tortoise due to the potential, infinite amounts of finite space separating them or how the real number one will never touch the real number two due to the infinite amount of fractions that separate them, the opponent will never touch Satoru due to the infinity between them. Satoru can decide what does and doesn't touch him and can do so based upon mass, speed, and danger ratings. Satoru stops the bugs.png
Cursed Technique Lapse: Blue (術式順転「蒼」 Jutsushiki Junten・Ao?): The reinforced version of the neutral limitless; Blue is the byproduct of Gojo amplifying the Limitless and negative energy, producing a vacuum. Through these, Gojo creates a scenario where the world itself is forced to correct itself and fill in the negative space, causing things to be pulled together at the particular spot.

Cursed Technique Lapse Maximum Cursed Energy Output: Blue (術式順転出力最大「蒼」 Jutsushiki Junten Shutsuryoku Saidai・Ao?): Satoru creates a center of gravity capable of attracting everything. He can also move the point of gravity at will. Cursed Technique Lapse Maximum Cursed Energy Output Blue.png
Cursed Technique Reversal: Red (術式反転「赫」 Jutsushiki Hanten・Aka?)[4]: Being an inversion of Blue, Red has the opposite effect. Using his reversal technique to invert the properties of Blue, Satoru activates the divergence of his infinity and causes a repulsive force. Being an ability that is powered by positive cursed energy and formed as a reverse curse technique, the ability has two times the destructive ability of Blue.[5] Cursed Technique Reversal Red.png
Hollow Purple (虚式「茈」 Kyoshiki・Murasaki?): Satoru snaps his fingers, combining "Blue" (attraction) and "Red" (repulsion), firing an invisible force that erases all matter in its path. Satoru Gojo using Purple to attack Hanami.png
Barrier Techniques
Satoru Gojo using Curtain to begin training.png Curtain ( Tobari?): Gojo can create a barrier that surrounds a certain area. The barrier can seal the area off from other people or a specific person wanting to get in.
Gojo's Immeasurable Void.png Unlimited Void (無量空処 Muryōkūsho?)[6]: Gojo's Domain Expansion. It creates a metaphysical space that causes the victims to receive all kinds of stimuli and information endlessly, restraining their thought processes and actions. [7] Gojo's control over his Domain is so fine that he can activate it for only 0.2 seconds, limiting its lasting effect on those he traps within it.[8] Those he makes physical contact with are also immune to its effect.
Other Abilities
Satoru Gojo arrives on the battlefield.png Six Eyes (六眼 Rokugan?): Not much is known about the Six Eyes, but it is known that they play some role in the precise usage of the Limitless. It has been stated that similar to Limitless, Six Eyes is also an Innate Technique inherited through the Gojo family.
