In action animes, you have the protagonist, you have your favourite character and then you have the MVP, the GOAT, the Sensei character. They are always nonchalant and they always kick ass singlehandedly. Jujutsu Kaisen takes this a step further with its cool Sensei, Satoru Gojo.
While his chaotic energy makes him a strange fit for a sensei type character, Satoru Gojo is the strongest man in the Jujutsu Kaisen Universe. However, is he the strongest of them all? How does Gojo Sensei compare to other Senseis in anime?
1. Kakashi Hatake (Naruto, Naruto Shippuden)
Naruto has an overwhelming amount of strong and badass characters. To stand out amongst them is a feat of wonder in itself. Kakashi Sensei has a fanbase of his own and could easily have his own show. Known and feared as the copy ninja, Kakashi uses his Sharingan to near perfection and always steals the show in any scene he is in.
His great intellect and years of battle experience give him the upper hand in almost all situations. How does our dearly beloved Kakashi Sensei stand up to Gojo Sensei though? And we are talking pre-war, Mangekyo Sharingan holding, Kamui wielding Kakashi.
For this to be a fair comparison, let's say cursed energy operates in a similar way as chakra. Kakashi’s Kamui manipulates dimensions of space and so does Gojo’s innate technique. What's more, Kakashi can copy every technique Gojo can do, even his innate techniques and domain expansion.
However, even if Kakashi were to get an edge due to his copying skills and speed, Sharingan uses up a lot of Chakra. Gojo on the other hand can conserve his energy infinitely due to Six Eyes. Stamina is where Gojo has Kakashi beat. So, even though it’d be an interesting fight, Gojo would eventually beat Kakashi.
2. Shota Aizawa (My Hero Academia)
Aizawa Sensei is the definition of “No forks to give”. This Man goes everywhere with his sleeping bag and gets inside it every chance he gets. Aizawa is not looking for a chance to get some shut-eye, except for the battlefield. Aizawa’s quirk allows him to erase his opponents’ quirks as long as they are in his field of vision.
This is the reason why he’d be a worthy opponent to Gojo Sensei. The only threat to Gojo’s infinity is someone who could turn it off and leave him vulnerable to physical damage. However, Satoru Gojo’s physical prowess is no joke. Even though Aizawa is an agile and skilful man himself, Gojo’s skills are on a whole other level.
3. Koro Sensei (Assassination Classroom)
There is nothing Koro Sensei can’t do. He has the perfect offence and defence and is absolutely unkillable. Seeing as he used to be an assassin before being turned into a super-being, Koro Sensei also has plenty of fighting experience. However, he has plenty of weaknesses that Gojo could and would absolutely take advantage of.
Since both of them have inexhaustible infinite energy, an actual fight between the two would drag on forever. However, if Gojo was to engage him in a juicy gossip (which Koro is very vulnerable to), he’d be able to knock Koro Sensei off in one fell swoop with one of his innate techniques.
4. Biscuit Krueger (Hunter X Hunter)
Biscuit ‘Bisky’ Krueger did not get much screen time on Hunter X Hunter. However, Bisky is easily the best instructor in the entire show. She can devastate her opponents with devastatingly precise control over Nen. She can ascertain anyone’s strengths and weaknesses by one glance.
And this is probably the reason why she would immediately give up a fight with the invulnerable Satoru Gojo. However, we doubt Bisky would even wanna fight Gojo. She’d much rather admire the beauty of the tall man in a blindfold than pick a fight with him.
5. Kisuke Urahara (Bleach)
Kisuke Urahara isn’t exactly a Sensei-type character. He’s more the laidback, chaotic, scientist type whose blade is to be feared and revered. He is a master of misdirection and is probably the most intelligent being in the Bleach Universe.
He can pretty much predict anything in advance and is hence prepared for everything. If Urahara were to go up against Gojo Sensei, he’d know in advance he has no chance of winning. However, it would still be an intensely interesting spectacle. The two geniuses going toe-to-toe with each other would be a treat for the eyes even if we knew the eventual fate of the fight.
