Just a few weeks ago, Jujutsu Kaisen fans collectively held their breath as rumors spread like wildfire, suggesting that Gojo had died in his battle against Sukuna. Thankfully, it turned out to be nothing more than a false alarm. But the incident did spark an intriguing question: if Gojo were to fall, who could possibly step up and confront the dreaded King of Curses?
We are well aware that Gojo Satoru stands in a league of his own, but the vast expanse of the jujutsu world does harbour some exceptional talents who might have what it takes to continue the battle against Sukuna. Admittedly, the odds of victory may seem slim, but when faced with such an unthinkable scenario, these are the three Jujutsu Kaisen sorcerers we believe can take on Sukuna if Gojo loses.
1. Yuta Okkotsu
- When it comes to potential contenders capable of challenging Sukuna, one name stands out prominently: Yuta Okkotsu. Praised by none other than Gojo Satoru himself, who has expressed the belief that Yuta could eventually surpass him, this young sorcerer’s extraordinary abilities make him a formidable force to be reckoned with.
- Already earning the title of Special Grade sorcerer within a mere three months of training with Miguel, Yuta possesses unparalleled power that rivals that of the mighty Gojo.
In a riveting encounter where Yuta attempted to execute Yuji Itadori, his mere presence alone sent shockwaves through his adversaries. Naoya and Choso, both seasoned fighters, felt compelled to caution Yuji to flee for his life, fully aware that crossing paths with Yuta Okkotsu meant certain doom.
2. Kinji Hakari
- Kinji Hakari is among the select few who have earned Gojo’s seal of approval in Jujutsu Kaisen. Gojo considers him one of the only two Jujutsu Sorcerers who could potentially surpass his own power, with the other being Yuta Okkotsu. Notably, even Yuta acknowledges Kinji’s superior strength when emotions run high.
After all, Hakari is a force to be reckoned with, combining elite close-quarters combat skills with the possession of serrated cursed energy. However, what truly sets him apart is his exceptional prowess as a jujutsu specialist, armed with a dynamic domain that amplifies his abilities to staggering levels.
- Kinji’s remarkable feats were prominently displayed during the Culling Game, where he achieved a remarkable victory over none other than Hajime Kashimo — who was not only the strongest sorcerer in the game, but also one of the most powerful sorcerers Kenjaku encountered in four hundred years.
3. Hajime Kashimo
Despite belonging to an era four centuries past, Hajime Kashimo’s power became the stuff of legends during the Culling Game. In a jaw-dropping display, he effortlessly vanquished over forty opponents in a mere twelve days, earning a fearsome reputation within the Tokyo colonies.
- Hajime’s cursed energy pulses with the properties of an electric current, electrifying his entire being. This charge infuses his physical attacks, making them nearly impossible to defend against. Every strike delivers a shocking jolt upon impact, leaving his adversaries reeling and defenceless.
- Yet, it is not just his electrifying power that distinguishes Hajime. What truly sets him apart is his exceptional battle intelligence. With remarkable speed, he assesses his opponent’s strengths and weaknesses, adapting his strategies on the fly to exploit vulnerabilities and secure victory.
His calculated approach ensures that he maintains the upper hand, leaving his foes scrambling for solutions. Hajime might not actually be able to defeat Sukuna, but he could give the King of Curses a run for his money.
When it comes to the potential candidates who could take on Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen, there are only three logical choices.
Yuta Okkotsu, with his untamed power and the admiration of Gojo himself, stands as a force to be reckoned with. Kinji Hakari, hailed as a contender to surpass Gojo, combines elite combat skills with unmatched jujutsu expertise. And then there is Hajime Kashimo, the calculated thunderstorm, armed with electrifying power and exceptional battle intelligence.
Though the odds may be stacked against them, these three sorcerers embody the resilience and determination required to face the unparalleled might of Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen!
