As Jujutsu Kaisen’s absolute strongest sorcerer, Gojo Satoru has always compared favorably to other powerful anime characters, but there are a few of them from other anime whose abilities are enough to defeat him.
Gojo Satoru is a major character in Jujutsu Kaisen and the greatest sorcerer alive. His mastery over cursed energy is so great that he breaks no sweat despite encountering curses with monstrous powers of their own. His ability, Infinity, keeps him protected from physical attacks, and his enemies always fail to defeat him.
However, outside of his own universe, there are characters with the ability to counter Gojo’s space manipulation. Some could win in an instant, while others would be pushed to their limit. Gojo’s strength predictably leads to him being prideful, but these characters may just humble the jovial and easy-going Sorcerer.
1. Ryomen Sukuna with his 20 fingers(Jujutsu Kaisen)
Gojo is generally acknowledged as the most powerful Jujutsu character with access to unrivalled power. However, fans would agree that his main challenger would be the King of Curses(Ryomen Sukuna) himself. Sukuna’s true strength is still unknown, much like his past. Nonetheless, we have already seen him destroy special grade curses easily and his full power is rumored to be completely terrifying and monstrous. Malevolent Shrine, Sukuna’s domain expansion, can compete with Gojo’s Infinite Void, and Sukuna’s knowledge of cursed energy is astounding. Fans are eager to see these two characters fight at peak strength.
2. Julius Novachrono and his ability to warp Time (Black Clover)
The Wizard King of the Clover Kingdom, Julius Novachrono is also the absolute strongest mage in Black Clover. He possesses Time Magic, giving him the power to manipulate time. This means he can accelerate and decelerate, stop and reverse time. With such a tremendous ability, he can defeat opponents in countless ways.
The fight between Gojo’s Infinity and Julius’ Time manipulation would make for an intriguing battle and raises questions about the subtleties of both powers. Can Julius’ mana zone overpower Gojo’s Infinity? A victory for Julius certainly is not guaranteed, but he is definitely amongst the few anime characters who can challenge the eccentric sorcerer.
3. Sasuke Uchiha’s Sharingan enables him perform Multi-Dimensional Attacks(Naruto)
Recognized as one of the two strongest ninja in history, Sasuke Uchiha is a complete monster. As a prodigy from a young age, Sasuke has progressed to reach unattainable heights, and his presence, alongside Naruto’s, acts as a deterrent, preventing war between the neighboring shinobi villages.
Gojo’s abilities and prowess make him untouchable to almost all physical attacks. But Sasuke’s skills exceed the physical and his Genjutsu could trap and torture Gojo. It can’t be confirmed if attacks like Amaterasu would work on the sorcerer, but Gojo possesses nothing in his arsenal that could threaten Sasuke’s Susanoo. The shadow Hokage has a good chance of winning.
4. Defending Against Lelouch’s Geass is impossible (Code Geass)
Like a chess master, Lelouch expertly moved pieces to succeed in this game of life. Gojo is a lot smarter than he acts, but he has not demonstrated the terrifying foresight that Lelouch has. The young protagonist could deceive Gojo and make him fall prey to his Geass.
5. Light Yagami Can Kill Any Human just by writing their name in his Book(Death Note)
Light Yagami is the twisted protagonist and later antagonist of Death Note. For a short time, Light was the most influential human in the world, controlling public and government behavior by combining his inhuman intellect with the supernatural abilities his Death Note provided him.
By writing someone’s name in his book, Light Yagami has the ability to end anyone’s life. Light can also manipulate an individual’s actions before their death and decide how they die. Although Gojo’s abilities far exceed that of any ordinary human, he is still human and is therefore vulnerable to the abilities of Light’s Death Note. It is possible Gojo can cheat death, but until he shows such an ability, Light Yagami can defeat him.
