Few characters are as cool and strong as Jujutsu Kaisen's Satoru Gojo. Because of the nature of his powers, fans of the fantasy anime might have all sorts of questions about what he can do and his limitations (or lack thereof). For instance, can Gojo fly in JJK? Here's everything we know so far!
What Are Satoru Gojo's Powers?
Satoru Gojo is easily one of the strongest characters in Jujutsu Kaisen. Not only is he a master in hand-to-hand combat, with immense strength and reflexes, but he's also a brilliant tactician. Moreover, he possesses the most dangerous and powerful cursed technique.
He earned his reputation as the strongest Jujutsu sorcerer because he possesses vast, unseen-before amounts of cursed energy.
This allows him to perform a domain expansion several times in a single day; an impossible feat for any regular sorcerer.
Gojo is also able to use a Reversed Curse Technique to heal himself when needed, which is another rare feat in the Jujutsu society.
Gojo's Limitless Power Explained
His inherited technique, "Limitless," is what concerns us here, as it earned him the reputation of being able to fly. But what does Limitless really do?
Limitless is a complex ability that allows the user to manipulate cursed energy at an atomic level and utilize it to control and alter space.
Over the course of the series, we see several versions of Limitless, from relatively tame (or as close as it gets with Gojo) to absolutely awesome.

Can Gojo Fly?
While this seems like an uncomplicated, yes or no question, fans of the manga don't seem to agree. Gojo's inherited ability, "Limitless," allows him to control cursed energy and manipulate space. This latter ability is where his power to defy gravity comes in.
Viewed this way, we would say that Gojo cannot quite fly, though he can definitely float in the air.
In one scene in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, Gojo fights against Jogo. At some point, he and Yuji are spotted levitating above the lake.
And then, there's a scene showing him seemingly floating in the air.
Taking that into account, it wouldn't exactly be wrong to say that Gojo is flying. However, he doesn't do so in the same sense that a winged creature would.
Gojo doesn't use his own physical abilities to fly, nor does he travel this way as witches are sometimes known to do.
Instead, he can create something similar to a black hole and move the point of gravity at will. This ability explains how Gojo can defy the laws of gravity and leave the ground.
Ultimately, it comes down to his manipulation of cursed energy rather than his ability to fly, per se.
