Gojo Satoru stands above almost every character in the series; aside from the king of curses, no one capable of defeating him has been introduced in the story. Despite acting like he does not care about everything, he has a tender side deep down, which has caused him so many problems.
Gojo Satoru is the strongest sorcerer of today and the epitome of strength in Jujutsu Kaisen verse; however, he retained a fatal weakness, which was having too much humanity and not making a demanding judgment, which was also a character trait of none other than Itachi Uchiha and was the reason for his death.
Gojo Satoru’s humanity was the reason for his downfall in Jujutsu Kaisen
The six-eye user is a jack-of-all-trades and is the only reason curses do not go wild in the series. As stated in the manga, when Gojo was born, the balance of the world was tilted.
Everybody in the verse looks up to him as a role figure, and due to being hailed as the strongest, Gojo never really showed any emotion.
Even when Geto died, he didn’t show remorse, which led fans to believe he did not have a weakness.
This claim was thrown out of the window during the Shibuya arc when Gojo could simultaneously exercise Mahito, Jogo, Choso, and Hanami by opening a domain but didn’t.
However, due to his hesitation about the civilians nearby, he only opened a domain for 0.02 seconds and was able to prevent any harm to ordinary people.
If he had decided to sacrifice all the people, none of the incidents after Shibuya would have happened.
But he hesitated and chose to save the civilians instead of killing the curses, which set the ball rolling for all the future events in the series.
Itachi Uchiha and Gojo Satoru shared the same weakness
This character was also seen in Itachi Uchiha from Naruto. Itachi was often proclaimed the most talented Uchiha ever, and as a character, he was a major fan favorite.
He also saved the leaf village numerous times in the story and always, from the get-go, had a soft side for his little brother.
During the Uchiha massacre, Itachi didn’t spare anyone, not even his parents, but when he came to Sasuke, he couldn’t bring himself to end the life of his beloved little brother.
The identical brother later went and killed him in the series; this is also the case with Gojo Satoru, who refused to destroy the body of his best friend, Geto Suguru.
Due to his refusal to let go of his body, Kenjaku was able to take over and cause all the terrible events, which is also the reason why Shibuya Gojo was termed a criminal.
