Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 232 saw the vulnerable Satoru Gojo being slashed with the Mahoraga’s sword, a cliffhanger that has resulted in widespread discussions surrounding the sorcerer’s fate and his underlying motive. We know that Gojo Satoru is a sorcerer who performs with unexpected ease when it comes to crucial battles, and he is also obsessed with the idea of being the strongest. But, it is important to understand how he derives this sense of motivation and consistency during a battle with just his pure carnal obsession with power.
Has the Mahoraga trapped Gojo or is it the sorcerer’s secret move towards a bigger agenda in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 232?
It seems that the Mahoraga has slashed Gojo with its sword after the Shikigami acquired its fourth rotation of the wheel and took complete control over Gojo’s Infinity. Now that it holds the power to break through the invincible barrier, it has also given Sukuna the upper hand to actually impose his Domain Expansion on Gojo.
Moreover, the Mahoraga can now withstand Gojo’s tactical attacks with complete knowledge and breakthrough against the Infinity.
With this knowledge in our hands, it would also be foolish to conclude that the Mahoraga has trapped Gojo in the events during the battle. Gojo has an innate desire to remain and constantly prove himself as the strongest being there is.
He is confident and at times even arrogant of his abilities. Since this battle has taken a turn where he has faced his strongest enemies to date, Gojo might simply choose to defeat the Mahoraga at its strongest and prove to Sukuna the true nature of his powers.
Why does Satoru Gojo feel the need to prove his supremacy and constantly validate himself?
From the very beginning of Jujutsu Kaisen, we have seen that Satoru Gojo has been extremely confident about his strength and his domination over the Jujutsu world and Sukuna himself.
During the battle against Toji Fushiguro, we witnessed how he almost came back from the dead. This is an indicator of how Gojo loves the element of drama and dramatic presentation of himself.
Satoru Gojo is undoubtedly the strongest sorcerer alive, but that has resulted in the growth of an individual who constantly needs a sense of validation for his actions and his strength. He receives this from the battles he fights, making them a showpiece of elegance. The major question however is – Will Satoru Gojo win against the Mahoraga? The theatrics in his battle form and his mindset are major factors that complement his character.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 232: Will Gojo be able to defeat Mahoraga?
- Gojo Satoru is a man who believes in surprises, twists, and crises. His major element of motivation comes from the onset of a major crisis, which sets in motion the various surprises and twists he employs to make it a theatrical performance of his strength.
- It can therefore be highly expected that Gojo Satoru has something or the other up his sleeve to defeat Mahoraga, and it is to prove his dominance over the strongest duo he has ever faced.
The Mahoraga and Sukuna are formidable enemies, two of the greatest to have ever stepped into the world of Jujutsu Kaisen. Gojo clearly knows this fact, and while fans are concerned with the attack by Mahoraga he is probably safe, given the fact that the weapon is meant for cursed spirits and Gojo isn’t one. Gojo Satoru definitely has some move up his sleeve to face and take down Mahoraga and Sukuna, might even be a new form of Cursed Technique Reversal, something that extends beyond the purple.
We can say in conclusion that to defeat Mahoraga and Sukuna, Satoru Gojo needs a solid plan of action. This plan demands that it be put into action much earlier in the plot, which is hopeful that Gojo has already done so. Any missing step would be fatal and the entire narrative might be in favor of the King of Curses and the strongest Shikigami.
