Ever since the start of the Jujutsu Kaisen, many have wondered who would win in a Yuji Itadori vs. Gojo situation. More about it further down the article.
Jujutsu Kaisen is the animated version of Gege Akutami’s manga with the same name. It’s produced by Studio MAPPA and first aired on October 2, 2020.
The news about making Jujutsu Kaisen into an anime was officially announced on November 25th, 2019. The manga’s creator, Gege Akutami, and the main cast also appeared at Jump Festa 2020 on December 22, 2019.
Ever since the anime first aired, it has gained immense popularity, and as such viewers have always wondered what would happen in a Yuji Itadori vs. Gojo situation.
Introduction Of Yuji Itadori And Gojo
Yuji Itadori is the main character in the series Jujutsu Kaisen.
He is a first-year student at Tokyo Jujutsu High School, where they learn about sorcery. His life takes a wild turn after eating a cursed finger belonging to a powerful cursed spirit named Ryomen Sukuna.
Now, Yuji, along with his classmates, has to deal with curses and fight them off. He’s got a deep reason for doing this. He wants to honor his grandfather’s legacy and help people, no matter what.
But there’s a problem. After he’s done eating all twenty fingers of that cursed spirit, he’s supposed to be executed. But he doesn’t want to be alone when that happens.
On the other hand, Satoru Gojo mentors Yuji Itadori and is a teacher to him.
Satoru Gojo initially made his appearance in another short series by Akutami titled Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, where he taught a boy named Yuta Okkotsu at Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.
Later, this short series became a prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen, known as Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
In Jujutsu Kaisen, Yuji is dealing with a similar curse problem as Yuta, so Gojo helps him get stronger while also protecting other characters in the story.
Additionally, Gojo is one of the most powerful characters in the whole series and has a signature blindfold, which many fans have felt similar to Naruto’s Kakashi’s mask.
[JJK] Yuji Itadori Vs Gojo: Who Would Win In A Teacher Vs Student?
Back to the topic at hand, viewers have always wondered about the Yuji Itadori vs. Gojo fight. What would happen and who would win in a teacher vs. student situation?
Like most of the Shonen protagonists, it’s for sure that the student will eventually surpass the teacher. So, in the future, Yuji will surely win against Gojo if they fight head-on.
However, for now, Yuji isn’t strong enough to defeat Gojo on his own.
Yuji is definitely a very powerful sorcerer and a big reason for that is his incredible physical strength. Although we don’t know exactly why he’s so strong, it’s clear that it gives him a significant advantage in battles.
Even before he learned how to use cursed energy, Yuji could throw a shot put with such force that it could actually damage a metal pole.
Meanwhile, Gojo is not only incredibly powerful, but he’s actually one of if not the strongest users of cursed techniques currently alive.
Additionally, he holds the title of the most skilled Six Eyes technique user ever seen in the Jujutsu Kaisen world.
On top of that, Gojo possesses the Limitless technique, a legendary power from the Gojo clan, one of the most potent cursed abilities in history.
So in conclusion, Gojo would currently win a Yuji Itadori vs. Gojo fight. However, in the future, Yuji will definitely turn the tables around.
But we might never see that happen in the official series as the recent manga releases have left Gojo to presumably die.
