1226 Jujutsu Kaisen – Satoru Gojo Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure – WonderCon 2023 and Hot Topic Shared Exclusive
This new 1226 Jujutsu Kaisen Satoru Gojo Funko Pop! is a stunning anime Pop! that really does capture all of the power, style, and charisma that the iconic anime sorcerer possesses.
I have just one question mark against this cool Pop! The figure seems to be the same as the 1114 Jujutsu Kaisen Satoru Gojo Funko Pop! where he is wearing a blindfold, with this 1226 Jujutsu Kaisen Satoru Gojo almost being a blindfold less chase variant… only it is not.
Compared to the Satoru Gojo Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure – WonderCon 2023 and Hot Topic Shared Exclusive below you can see it’s the same figure, with the same pose with a different head.

Satoru Gojo is a legendary Jujutsu Sorcerer and a mentor to all the students at Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.
At the very beginning of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, we see Satoru confront Ryomen Sukuna a highly dangerous cursed spirit who has found his way to possessing the body of Yuji Itadori a high school student. Gojo immediately displays his power by seemingly effortlessly overpowering Ryomen Sukuna with his bare hands.
A little later Satoru Gojo again displays his power when he severs the limbs of the evil sorcerer Juzo in a feat of strength and skill.
Why does Satoru Gojo often wear a blindfold?
Gojo wears a blindfold because of his “Six Eyes”. His “Six Eyes” heightened sight quickly drains him of energy and tires him very quickly. So to counter this he wears a blindfold.
“Six Eyes” requires Satoru to use cursed energy, which would use all his energy reserves when not wearing a blindfold. The only time he doesn’t wear a blindfold or glasses is when he needs to go full power.
So that is why you often see Satoru Gojo wearing a blindfold?
