Satoru Gojo and Toji Fushiguro are two of the strongest characters in the Jujutsu Kaisen anime. The two did fight once in the anime, but that was way ago. If there was to be a rematch, who would win in a fight between Gojo and Toji?
Although Toji did defeat Gojo when they were younger, now, Satoru Gojo is so powerful that he would certainly be able to defeat Toji. Toji’s power at the time was a surprise for the younger and less experienced Gojo, but Gojo has grown so much since then that he would easily deal with Toji now.
Now that you have the short version of the answer, we are going to compare Satoru Gojo and Toji Fushiguro in more detail. Through several categories, you are going to see exactly who the stronger of the two is and why our answer is like it is.
Satoru is claimed to be one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful characters in the series, wielding both immense amounts of occult energy and dangerously powerful techniques. Today, Satoru Gojo’s power is feared even by the highest dignitaries of the exorcist society, and it is such that he can overturn decisions made by the pundits like the capital punishment of a person.
He declares in particular that it would be easy for him to kill them all and to overthrow the current society if he really wanted to. Satoru even claimed that he could defeat Sukuna at his full power.
Although Toji is technically a non-exorcist with no innate talent for the occult and simply devoid of occult energy, he was one of the best fighters in the occult world during his lifetime.
With innate physical prowess significantly above average, Toji has fought against the most dangerous and highest-ranked exorcists of his time. Yuki Tsukumo, an S-class exorcist, even declared that he was a true superman. Toji used the occult knowledge of the Zenin family and turned it against the exorcists, earning him the nickname “Slayer of Exorcists”.
Despite Toji’s skills and the fact he became so powerful despite being a non-exorcist, he is currently nowhere near Gojo’s levels, which is why Gojo wins this one easily.
Points: Gojo 1, Toji 0
Powers and abilities
He has great physical strength and can fight against powerful plagues without problems, delivering powerful punches and even being able to throw them a great distance with a single kick. He has great speed, managing to keep up with the movements of an S-Class exorcist effortlessly, and throwing almost imperceptible punches and kicks.
He has been shown to be able to move faster than the eye can perceive. Satoru has proven to be quite tactical and has shown that he is able to figure out what his opponent is planning with just enough information. He’s also shown to be extremely adaptable to pretty much any enemy he’s encountered so far.
Toji possesses a superhuman degree of physical strength, enough to effortlessly snatch Floating Cloud from the hands of Maki, another person with great physical gifts. Using Floating Cloud, an item that depends on the user’s physical strength, Toji was able to easily crush Dagon’s toughest familiar.
With another cursed object, he was able to slice off Suguru’s most resilient plague and only used his hands to strike Takuma Ino’s face, and this so badly that he nearly died. Toji has been repeatedly described as having superhuman speed, so much so that his opponents cannot read his movements. Regarding his missions, Toji approaches them with discretion, caution, and patience.
Just as it was in the former category, Gojo has far surpassed anything that Toji has to offer and that is why he is the clear winner in this category as well.

Satoru, in addition to his overwhelming level of occult energy, is also an incredibly fearsome martial art master, with extraordinary physical prowess to support his skills. He was able to completely dominate Jogo in melee, delivering several precise attacks on the scourge kill points. He was even able to fight and largely dominated Jogo and Hanami in close combat, easily countering their attacks and delivering powerful blows to them that quickly forced them into submission.
Toji is able to use a wide variety of weapons in combat. His entire fighting style is based on the use of weapons to replace occult energy. He keeps a vast arsenal in his scourge, allowing him to effectively change weapons as needed.
Whether it is a cursed object or not, and whether the weapon is sharp or not, Toji has shown extreme skill and intelligent use of his weapons. He can fight with multiple weapons at once and can even combine them. Armed with a pistol, Toji has shown himself to be a sniper with extremely precise aim.
The two of them have a completely different approach to fighting – Gojo prefers melee techniques, while Toji prefers weapon-based techniques – and they’re both experts in their respective fields. That is why we are going to give a point to both.
Points: Gojo 3, Toji 1
Satoru is known within exorcist society as the most powerful exorcist. He got this pseudonym because of the immense amounts of occult energy and powerful techniques he possesses. Satoru’s occult energy is large enough to use Territory Expansion multiple times a day, unlike other exorcists.
He has excellent control over his occult energy, being able to activate his Territory Extension in a fraction of a second, use the inversion spell, and even combine positive and negative occult energy.
Unlike any other known case in the world, Toji does not possess any occult energy. His innate oath completely removed the occult energy from his body. This makes Toji undetectable to other exorcists, making him able to move through barriers undetected or even sneak past the Sixth Eye. This aided his unpredictability in battle and caused others to underestimate him based solely on occult energy.
You do have to credit Toji for becoming as powerful as he did without any occult energy whatsoever, but Gojo is simply on a different level when compared to Toji and he has to get this point.

Satoru Gojo Vs. Toji Fushiguro: Who Win?
If you’ve read the Gojo’s Past arc, you know that Toji defeated Gojo when they fought some time ago. Gojo was much weaker then, and he wasn’t experienced as he is now, which enabled Toji to defeat the exorcist with relative ease.
Today, the situation is largely different, as Gojo is one of the most powerful characters in the whole franchise – if not the most powerful – whereas Toji is a simple remnant of the past.
That is why Gojo is the clear winner in this match-up.
