Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 was less action-packed than its recent predecessors, but it was nonetheless thrilling due to the mini-time skip and the several developments hinted at. Many of the cast members are excited about Gojo Satoru's long-awaited return, but sadly, their enthusiasm hasn't permeated the series' real-life following. Gege Akutami, the show's creator, may be gently hinting at Gojo's demise in his forthcoming titanic struggle, according to astute viewers.

Since the beginning of Jujutsu Kaisen, Gojo's standing as the strongest sorcerer has gone unquestioned, and every fight he's engaged in has only reinforced this fact. His opponent, Ryomen Sukuna, also regarded as the King of Curses, is the source of his concern for this fight in particular. Sukuna has a similar winning streak throughout JJK and is largely regarded as the only other sorcerer capable of competing with Gojo. Since Sukuna first challenged Gojo from within Itadori's body, their confrontation has been widely awaited. It's a struggle that's been years in the making, and fans are worried that it will be Gojo's first defeat.



Uncanny Similarities Between Gojo's Battle Uniform and Toji Fushiguro's

When fans examined Gojo's choice of attire, the theory that his demise is being hinted at gained traction. Gojo put on a tight-fitting black shirt and loose, flowing pants before confronting Sukuna. This clothing is identical to the one Toji Fushiguro wore in his failed effort to kill Gojo and the potential Star Plasma Vessel. Even though Toji put up a gallant fight, he was slain when he allowed his ego to impair his judgment in the middle of the conflict. Many admirers think it's deliberate that their clothes are identical and that Akutami is subtly warning readers to expect Gojo to die in a same way.

On the other hand, the similarities between Gojo’s and Toji’s outfits could be coincidental. Before revealing the fitted shirt, Gojo was sporting an official-looking robe that matched those worn by his two escorts, Utahime Iori and Principal Gakuganji of Kyoto Jujutsu High. The black undershirt that favors Toji’s could simply be standard issue for sorcerers preparing to go into combat. While Jujutsu Kaisen often teases plot twists in later chapters by hiding them in plain sight, there might not be any hidden significance to Gojo’s choice of outfit.


Gojo vs. Sukuna: Jujutsu Kaisen's Titanic Battle

Jujutsu Kaisen has repeatedly stated that absolute strength can be alienating for the sorcerers who wield it. After Geto Suguru died, Gojo dedicated his life to teaching the next generation to be strong enough to stand with him. He's almost admitting that his position as the strongest is lonely. Sukuna has never expressed a similar feeling, and he probably never will, but the joy with which he faced formidable opponents such as Jogo and Megumi Fushiguro's Mahoraga demonstrates that he would welcome the opportunity to face an equal. In actuality, Yorozu became obsessed with Sukuna after noticing a loneliness in his eyes that she believed only she could fix.

However their battle shakes out, its likely Gojo vs Sukuna will end up being an incredibly affirming affair for two peerless titans. If the foreshadowing rumors ring true and Gojo is defeated, it’ll probably be because of a desire to save Megumi Fushiguro. Gojo’s love for his students and determination to have them fully enjoy their youth might compel him to take some unnecessary risks in order to save Megumi from his unfortunate fate. On the other hand, Sukuna has no objectives in this battle past defeating Gojo. His single-minded goal could well be what grants him the victory against Jujutsu Kaisen’s strongest sorcerer.
