JJK Gojo’s Moves and Combos
JJK Gojo is a special grade fighter in Tekken 8, which means he has access to the new “Heat” system, a mechanic that allows him to cause chip damage, unlock additional moves, and change the properties of some of his attacks
To activate the “Heat” system, you need to fill up a gauge by landing hits, blocking attacks, or taunting your opponent. Once the gauge is full, you can press the R1 button (or RB on Xbox) to enter the “Heat” state, which lasts for 10 seconds. During this state, JJK Gojo’s eyes will glow blue, and he will be able to use his signature abilities from the Jujutsu Kaisen series, such as the Limitless and the Six Eyes

JJK Gojo’s Strategies and Tips
Now that you know JJK Gojo’s moves and combos, let’s talk about some strategies and tips on how to use him effectively in Tekken 8. Here are some of the things you should keep in mind when playing as JJK Gojo:
- JJK Gojo is a very versatile and unpredictable fighter who can adapt to any situation and playstyle. He can be offensive, defensive, or balanced, depending on your preference and the opponent’s behavior. Experiment with different moves and combos, and find out what works best for you and against your opponent.
- JJK Gojo’s main strength is his ability to manipulate space and time, which gives him a lot of mobility and options. He can move around the stage quickly, avoid or counter attacks, and attack from different angles. Use his moves, such as Infinity Rush, Infinity Shift, and Infinity Domain, to surprise and outsmart your opponent and create openings for combos and attacks.
- JJK Gojo’s main weakness is his reliance on the “Heat” system, which limits his access to his most powerful moves and abilities. He can only enter the “Heat” state once per round, and only for 10 seconds. Therefore, you need to be careful and strategic about when and how to use the “Heat” system and make the most of it while it lasts. Don’t waste it on unnecessary or ineffective moves, and don’t let your opponent interrupt or avoid it. Try to use it when you have an advantage or when you need a comeback.
- JJK Gojo’s ultimate move, Infinity Overload, is a very risky and rewarding move, which can either win or lose you the round. It can only be performed when your health is below 30%, and it requires two inputs, which can be interrupted or blocked by the opponent. However, if you manage to pull it off, it will hit the entire stage, cause huge damage, and end the round. Therefore, you need to be very careful and confident about when and how to use it, and make sure you have enough distance and time to execute it. Don’t use it recklessly, and don’t rely on it too much.
