JJK 239 Spoilers hint Yuta’s next opponent isn’t Sukuna but his Sensei

Yuta Okkotsu vs Kenjaku

After months of prolonged silence surrounding Kenjaku, the latest Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 239 spoilers have brought him back into the spotlight, hinting at a decisive moment in his plan. The chapter mainly centers on Kenjaku’s battle with Takaba, but there’s a sneaky clue that he might have his sights set on Gojo’s body for his next move.

In this article, we’ll talk about why Kenjaku might be after Gojo’s body, what might happen if he does manage to take over, and who could stop him if it happens.

The Clue in JJK 239 spoilers: Does Kenjaku plan on taking over Gojo’s body?

  • In Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 239, Kenjaku drops an interesting comment when he hears about Gojo’s defeat. He mentions that “Gojo has a good face,” which might sound odd at first, but given the context, it’s an obvious hint that Kenjaku might be planning to take over Gojo’s body.
  • For those keeping up with Season 2 and the Shibuya arc, you might have noticed that Gojo’s birth marked a turning point in the power balance, favoring sorcerers. Kenjaku might be keen to shift the balance back towards curses, gaining access to everything Gojo spent years mastering.

Honestly, it’s not that surprising. Who wouldn’t want to step into the shoes of the most powerful sorcerer in history? It’s not like any of us wouldn’t jump at the chance to switch bodies with Gojo—though our reasons might be slightly different from Kenjaku’s.

Of course, this was just a small clue, and it doesn’t guarantee that Kenjaku will definitely succeed. But in Jujutsu Kaisen, the less likely something seems, the more likely Gege is to surprise us.

So, if Kenjaku does manage to take over Gojo, what happens next? Can any of the sorcerers even hope to stand against him?

Yuta’s crucial role in facing Kenjaku: The potential showdown

Jujutsu Kaisen has made it quite clear that Yuta holds a unique position in the series. Gege has also emphasized time and again that he’s the only sorcerer capable of picking up after Gojo’s legacy. So, if Kenjaku does take over Gojo’s body, it’s almost certain that Yuta would be the one to stand against him.

  • Kenjaku mentioned in JJK 239 spoilers that he is closely monitoring the sorcerers, with a particular focus on Yuta. He’s well aware that Yuta poses the most significant threat to his plans. If Kenjaku were to inhabit Gojo’s body, Yuta is the only one with a chance to summon the strength needed to defeat him.
  • Realistically, there are no other contenders who could take on Kenjaku in this scenario. Yuji, at his current power level, wouldn’t stand a chance, and while Hakari could pose a challenge, his odds of victory are slim. It appears that, as painful as it may be for Yuta, he’ll have to face this challenge head-on.

Could Yuta defeat Kenjaku?

In terms of power, Yuta and Kenjaku are evenly matched, with Gojo’s strength being the wildcard. Yet, Gojo himself said, on multiple occasions, that Yuta has the potential to surpass him. Gojo even hinted at this confrontation back when he was being sealed in Shibuya. He warned Kenjaku about Yuta, suggesting that even without him, Yuta would come for Kenjaku.

  • However, it won’t just be a physically challenging battle – it’ll also take an immense toll on Yuta emotionally. We’ve yet to see how Yuta reacted to Gojo’s death, but he is likely devastated, and this might finally be the thing that sends him into extreme rage.

You also cannot miss the poetic drama that this battle would bring. Think about it: Yuta trying to take down the mentor he deeply cares for is similar to what Gojo went through against Kenjaku. And Yuta might succeed where Gojo couldn’t: defeating the curse that exploited his loved one’s body.

Speaking of Gojo’s death, is it possible that Gege may have drawn inspiration for this plot twist from another manga? We dove into this idea extensively in Spiel Times’ Seventh Edition Newsletter.
