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, standing over 190 centimeters, and is apparently considered by many women to be attractive. 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 normally 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, as he is usually nonchalant and playful towards people such as his students and colleagues, 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 and saying that he could defeat the King of Curses easily.

Abilities and Powers

Satoru Gojo shows off his overwhelming power.

Overall Skill: Satoru is said to be one of, if not 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 has great physical strength to fight against powerful curses without problems, delivering powerful punches and throwing Jogo a large distance with a single kick during their fight.

Satoru's immense speed.

Superhuman Speed and Reflexes: He has great speed, managing to follow the movements of Jogo without effort, and throwing almost imperceptible punches and kicks. He was shown to be able to move faster than the eye can perceive.

Tactical Intelligence: Gojo was shown to be quite tactical and has shown to be able to figure out what his opponent is planning with just enough information. He's also shown to be extremely adaptable to pretty much any enemy he's faced so far, knowing exactly what to do in order to counter their techniques and defeat them.

Jujutsu

Cursed Energy Manipulation
Immense Cursed Energy: Satoru Gojo is known within the Sorcerer society as the strongest Jujutsu Sorcerer. He earned this alias thanks to the superhuman amounts of Cursed Energy he possesses. Gojo's Cursed Energy is vast enough to allow him to use a Domain Expansion multiple times per day, as opposed to other Sorcerers that can only activate it once a day at most.

His control over Cursed Energy is also nothing to scuff at, since he can activate his Domain for less than a second, use Reverse Cursed Techniques and even combine positive and negative Cursed Energy. Satoru 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
Gojo defending himself from Jogo's volcanic attack.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" forms 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 which separate them, the opponent will never touch Satoru due to the infinity between them. Satoru is able to 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: Aoi?): The reinforced version of the neutral limitless, Blue is the byproduct of Gojo amplifying the Limitless and Negative numbers causing impossible situations like Negative one apples to be born. Through the creation of these impossibilities, Gojo creates a scenario where the world itself is forced to attempt and correct itself and fill in the negative space, therefore, causing things to be pulled together at the spot of this impossibility resulting in attraction.

Cursed Technique Lapse Maximum Cursed Energy Output: Blue (術式順転出力最大「蒼」 Jutsushiki Junten Shutsuryoku Saidai: Aoi?): Using the power of attraction, Gojo causes a single point to attract everything around itself. Gojo is also capable of moving the point around himself to attract everything around him to that point. Cursed Technique Lapse Maximum Cursed Energy Output Blue.png
Cursed Technique Reversal: Red (術式反転「赫」 Jutsushiki Hanten: Aka?)[3]: Being an inversion of Blue, Red has the opposite effect. By using his reversal technique to invert the properties of Blue, Satoru activates the divergence of his infinity and in turn causes a a technique that attracts to become one which violently repels. This is first shown when Gojo released a allowed the ability to interact with a void creating a great explosive vacuum repelling even a special grade curse target. Being an ability which is powered by positive cursed energy and formed as reverse curse technique the ability has two times the destructive ability of Blue.[4] Cursed Technique Reversal Red.png
Hollow Purple (虚式「茈」 Kyoshiki: Murasaki?): After combining "Blue" and "Red" together, Satoru snaps his fingers creating the release of imaginary mass which effectively erases or deletes everything in it's path. Satoru Gojo using Purple to attack Hanami.png
Barrier Techniques

Gojo's Immeasurable Void.png Unlimited Void (無量空処 Muryōkūsho?)[5]: Gojo's Domain Expansion. It creates a space "inside the Limitless", which causes the actions the opponent takes in life to be forced upon them indefinitely. The opponent can seemingly see and feel everything, but the information is never-ending, limiting their movement and thought processes.[6] Gojo's control over his Domain is so fine that, uniquely, he can activate it for a 0.2 second interval, limiting its lasting effect on those he traps within it.[7] Those he makes physical contact with are also immune to its effect.
Other Abilities
The Six Eyes: Not much is known about the Six Eyes but it is known that they play some role in the precise usage of the Limitless. Satoru Gojo arrives on the battlefield.png
