Yuta Okkotsu is the protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and was set to be the original protagonist of the series until Gege Akutami replaced him with Itadori. But nevertheless, Yuta has returned to the main storyline of Jujutsu Kaisen and has, in the meantime, become one of the series’ most popular characters. Yuta is incredibly strong, and his Copy technique is quite intriguing, so in this article, we are going to tell you how far it goes, especially in relation to Gojo’s techniques. In this article, you are going to find out whether Yuta is able to use one of Gojo’s most powerful techniques – Hollow Technique: Purple!
Hollow Technique: Purple is an amazingly powerful technique
As fans of the series will probably know, Satoru Gojo’s Purple is an exceptionally powerful technique that is the result of colliding the two aspects of his Limitless technique. It is a combination of Blue and Red, two opposites (Blue embodies negative cursed energy, while Red embodies positive cursed energy) that collide and create one powerful form of artificial mass with destructive consequences. In order to use it effectively, one has to have the Six Eyes as well, as Hollow Technique: Purple is a manifestation of Limitless. Now, Gojo is the only known character who can use this technique, but could Yuta use it as well? Let us see.
With the help of his Copy technique, Yuta may imitate any other natural skill and stay in contact with Rika. Although the precise workings of this technique are unknown—especially in light of the fact that Yuta can employ it even in the absence of Rika—we can surmise that it has something to do with the nature of Rika’s cursed energy and the fact that Yuta can utilize it in her absence. Usually, Yuta simply sees a technique and is later able to recreate it, although – as we’ve said – we don’t know all the details so it is possible that there is something more to it.
Now that we have explained the background of this, let us see whether Yuta is able to use Hollow Technique: Purple.
As of Chapter 250, Yuta is unable to use Purple
The question of whether Yuta can use Hollow Technique: Purple, or any of Gojo’s techniques for that matter, has been a burning one ever since we found out what Yuta can do. In an earlier article, we theorized that Yuta could theoretically copy Gojo’s technique but that the effectiveness of these techniques is debatable since one needs Six Eyes to use their techniques efficiently. In Chapter 250, Sukuna even confirmed that Yuta was probably unable to copy Limitless, as he does not have the Six Eyes, so it could very well be that Yuta cannot do it.
But, Yuta’s Domain is very special and very specific, as we have seen. Each sword contains a separate technique and even Yuta doesn’t know which one he will use before he touches a particular katana. It has been confirmed that the number of swords is unlimited, which means that Yuta could – theoretically – have all the techniques at his disposal. This is a new Domain so even Sukuna doesn’t have a thorough understanding of how it works.
Based on what has been said so far, Yuta Okkotsu is not able to use Gojo’s techniques, at least not efficiently. He has shown his ability to use several different techniques, including Jacob’s Ladder and even Sukuna’s own techniques, but so far – Gojo’s seem to be unavailable to him, mainly because he doesn’t have the Six Eyes. Whether that will change in the upcoming manga chapters is unclear.
It could be that Yuta really cannot use these techniques, but it could turn out that his Domain works in such a way that it allows him to use Gojo’s techniques as well, because of its special properties; Akutami doesn’t shy away from making overpowered characters, so this wouldn’t really surprise us all that much.
