Gojo Satoru is a really important character in Jujutsu Kaisen and is effectively the face of the overall series. Satoru is often said to be the most-loved character of the series. Unfortunately, however, in the Culling Game part, Gojo had a big fight with Sukuna in Shinjuku. The battle proved to be super intense and close and resulted in the death of Goju.
Even though he’s dead, fans are guessing and making theories about him maybe coming back. No one is sure, and this uncertainty makes people think that if he does come back, it might prove to be his saddest sacrifice. This is bound to make his character in Jujutsu Kaisen more complicated and meaningful.
Gain and Loss: Gojo’s Death and Potential Revival in Jujutsu Kaisen
In JJK Chapter 221, “Gain and Loss,” Gojo was unsealed. This happened 131 chapters after he was sealed in “The Shibuya Incident, Part 8.” Yuji and friends found a sorcerer who could free Gojo by nullifying the Prison Realm.
While trying to free Gojo, Sukuna took over Megumi Fushiguro. When Gojo was freed, he challenged Sukuna to a duel, the battle lasted from Chapters 223 to 236. By Chapter 235, Gojo seemed to win, but Chapter 236 revealed he lost his life to Sukuna.
Fans had different feelings about Gojo’s death. Some wanted to stop watching the series, but others, even though Gojo was arrogant, still liked the character. Some believe Gojo might come back, thinking he could survive or there might be a surprise.
However, he’s dead, but fans are guessing and making theories about him possibly coming back. No one is sure, and this uncertainty makes people think that if he does return, it might be his saddest sacrifice.
Gojo’s Potential Return to a Happy World as a Bittersweet Sacrifice
For some, Gojo’s death was anticipated for the story to progress and maintain tension. This allows the next generation of sorcerers he mentored to step up and finish off Sukuna. While some are sad to see Gojo go, it’s seen as the right choice for the story’s development.
Gojo’s death is one of the saddest moments in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga. After Gojo’s death, many fans suggest that he might come back, and it makes sense because he is the only character as powerful as Sukuna.
But one Twitter user (@JujutsuCurry), who also wants Gojo to come back in Jujutsu Kaisen, suggests that Gojo has to sacrifice something very important for his revival in the world.

While I would love to get Gojo back in whichever way possible the idea of him losing some or all of his powers and finally no longer being lonely makes me a bit sad. It gives the impression that he has to give up a part of himself in order to fit in + pic.twitter.com/tpfe3g8JC6

The user suggests that if Gojo comes back in any possible way, the idea is that he loses some or all of his powers and finally is no longer lonely. As some fans might know, Gojo is the most powerful, but he never wanted the title of being the strongest. This gives an idea in which Gojo might lose all his powers and become an ordinary person.
