It should be pretty obvious that we’ll be going into *Heavy Spoilers* in this guide, especially if you’ve been keeping up with the series via the anime instead of the manga. Consider this your final Spoiler Warning before proceeding.

Is Gojo Satoru Dead in Jujutsu Kaisen? Answered

Sadly, Gojo Satoru is dead as of Chapter 236 in Jujutsu Kaisen. The specifics of how this occurs still aren’t entirely clear though.

As has been shared through Reddit and Twitter, the death occurs in only a few panels. Said images show Gojo cut in half, with blood leaking out of his mouth and lower abdomen. Sukuna can also be seen nearby having presumably delivered the finishing blow, and Hajime Kashimo is seen leaping into the fray to pick up where Gojo left off.

Things aren’t made much clearer by reading chapter 236 via the Shonen Jump website and app either. The majority of the chapter takes place as Gojo passes away, with him enjoying a reunion between himself and his classmates Haibara, Nanami, and Geto. The focus then shifts to Sukuna standing above Gojo’s body, and he explains that Mahoraga managed to adapt to his Limitless in a way that let him cut not just Gojo, but also all of the space and matter around him.

We’ll likely receive more details in the chapters to come, but for now this is all we have to go off of.

Did Sukuna Kill Satoru Gojo? Answered

On the plus side, it is a safe bet to say that Sukuna killed Satoru Gojo in Jujutsu Kaisen.

The two were locked in an intense battle for the majority of the most recent chapters. While Gojo certainly gave Sukuna a run for his money, the King of Curses managed to push Gojo’s Limitless and Reverse Cursed Energy to their breaking points on several occasions. Gojo likewise lost an arm due to Sukuna’s summoning of Mahoraga via his control over Megumi‘s body.

This put Gojo on the back foot for most of the chapters leading up to 236, and it wouldn’t be shocking if he finally hit his limit in their fight; albeit off-screen or in-between what was properly shown.

Can Gojo Be Brought Back to Life? Theories Explained

With all of this in mind, you might now be wondering if Gojo can be brought back to life in Jujutsu Kaisen.

While we’re inclined to say no given how the series treats death, there are some specific scenarios where this might be possible. Most all of them revolve around the use of Reverse Cursed Techniques to heal Gojo ASAP, and even then they’d be pushing the limits of the rules the series has established. Plus, the fact that he met and talked with his dead classmates feels like a dead giveaway that he’s just as gone for good as they are.

This is a Shonen we’re talking about though, and stranger things have happened in the genre. It could be a little while until we get a firm answer, as it seems like the next few chapters will be focused on the fallout of this climactic death.
