10 Smartest Anime Characters Of All Time

9. Gojo Satoru - Jujutsu Kaisen

Bulma Dragon Ball

Gojo Satoru in Jujutsu Kaisen may play the idiot role, but he is far from stupid.

At his heart, Gojo is a revolutionary. He's keenly aware of how corrupt the Jujutsu system is, and knows that he could easily kill every higher up in the Jujutsu government. Yet, despite how happy it would probably make him, he doesn't. This is because he also knows that killing them wouldn't solve anything. If change is what he wants, Gojo needs to inspire a revolutionary spirit in those who have yet to be indoctrinated by the system, instead of just cutting off its heads only for it to grow more in their place.

His strategic knowledge is only half of his intelligence though, the other half comes from his understanding of his powers. Gojo, under his neigh-omnipotent surface, is still only a human. This means that he has the limits of any other person. So, he is constantly having to keep in mind his own limitations as to not overload himself. If he slips up for even just a second, it could spell his end.

Gojo has mastered the art of balance in both might and mind. If he dedicates himself to something, there is nothing he isn't capable of.
