In Jujutsu Kaisen, Satrou Gojo is introduced in the story as the strongest there is. The series even goes so far as to show that the balance of power in the world shifted when he was born. One of the main reasons that Gojo’s birth was so monumental was due to the fact that the two cursed techniques that he was born with were an incredibly rare combination. Satoru Gojo’s limitless technique is usually passed on in the Gojo family. However, the fact that Gojo was also born with the six eyes technique is what makes him unique and powerful in Jujutsu society.

Six eyes are considered extremely rare in Jujutsu Sorcery, as the series states that Gojo is the first in 400 years to be born with both limitless and six eyes. When a sorcerer has both of these techniques, their grasp on limitless and cursed energy is elevated above practically everyone else. With glowing blue eyes, having this trait lets Gojo perceive the flow of cursed energy and even lets him see everything while his eyes are covered.

Because six eyes allow a large amount of input, Gojo must cover his eyes to dampen the strain of that much visual information on his mind. In Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Gojo wears white bandages to cover his eyes but uncovers one during an intense battle with another sorcerer. For the rest of the series, Gojo can be seen either wearing black sunglasses or a black blindfold around his eyes whenever he’s not in battle. Whenever Gojo does uncover his eyes, it’s a telltale sign that things are getting serious and that there’s an intense battle ahead.

And that’s why Gojo covers his eyes in Jujutsu Kaisen.
