The Unexpected Twist in the Battle Between Satoru Gojo and Ryomen Sukuna
In Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 235, it was seemed like Satoru Gojo had emerged victorious in his battle against Ryomen Sukuna, marking the end of their conflict. As a result, many fans weren’t very excited about the next chapter. However, in chapter 236, Mangaka Gege Akutami had a surprise twist planned for the series that fans weren’t prepared for.
Fans discovered online that in the spoilers, the battle between Gojo and Sukuna had ended, but surprisingly, Gojo was the one defeated, not Sukuna. The chapter gradually revealed this turn of events. At first, it seemed like a flashback chapter, but it ultimately unveiled that Gojo had been split in two.
In reaction to Gojo’s alleged sad death, fans are expressing their disapproval on the social media platform “X/Twitter.”

#GojoSatoru is not dead. Remember what Kasimo was saying. The RCT operate from the head. #Goatjo itself said that Toji should stabbed him in the head. Yes Gojo is cut in half. But his head is still intact#GojoSatoru #Gojo #jjk236spoiler #jjk336 #jjk236 #GOJOALIVE pic.twitter.com/pw4XefsyFB

What will Happen in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter #236?
According to the leaked spoilers, in Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 236, Gojo finds himself in an illusion where he reunites with Geto. They discuss Gojo’s death and the consequences it might have for Gojo’s father, with Shoko handling those matters. Gojo talks about his fight with Sukuna, admitting that Sukuna held back and didn’t use his full strength, even though Gojo gave it his all.
He wishes his friend, who once talked about leaving everything to him, could have been there to witness the fight. Nanami joins the conversation, expressing sympathy for Gojo despite not agreeing with how he died.
Nanami reflects on Mei Mei’s advice to “go north” to discover a new side of oneself or “go south” to stay true to oneself, choosing the latter and thanking Haibara for her support. Gojo says his goodbyes to Geto, Yaga, Nanami, Haibara, Riko, and Kuroi.
The entire conversation takes place in an airport waiting room, presumably in Okinawa. The chapter then cuts to Shinjuku, where Gojo’s lifeless body is seen on the ground. Sukuna explains that Mahoraga adapts to attacks, particularly nullifying Infinity when faced with it.
