Valorant’s latest agent Iso is here and fans can’t hold their horses to try out the latest duelist, the only duelist to grace the meadows of Valorant in a long time since Neon. As crazy as his preview looks, fans were quick to point out similarities between the new agent and Jujutsu Kaisen protagonist Satoru Gojo.
Jujutsu Kaisen boasts one of the biggest fandoms in the world and Gojo has been one of the most popular characters in the history of animes. His uniqueness makes it easy to pick him up from a crowd and being a likeable character, his similarities with Valorant’s Iso has given fans a new reason to get excited.
Why do fans think Iso is based on Satoru Gojo?
Anyone familiar with Iso and Gojo will quickly point out the recognisable purple aura that surrounds both characters besides the fact both hail from Asian ethnicity. One key similarity is their ability. Iso’s Ultimate ability resembles Gojo’s Domain Expansion beyond a doubt and both abilities are executed in the same fashion which makes it hard to tell the two apart. In the manga, Gojo boasts something called Infinity which essentially protects him from physical attacks as is the case with Iso who can become bulletproof.
While there are plenty of comparable points between the two characters, it would be a far-fetched statement to say Iso is based on Satoru Gojo. While the resemblance is uncanny, it will be safe to assume that the character designers drew some inspiration from the anime when Iso was in the works.
Fans often crave JJK crossovers with their favourite game and this is as close to one that Valorant players can get at the moment.
