10 Things Demon Slayer’s Tengen Uzui And Satoru Gojo Have In Common
Tengen Uzui used the second half of demon slayer Season 2 as a flashy advertisement for itself. After attempting to kidnap Aoi from the Butterfly Mansion and subsequently recruiting the series’ protagonist into his party, Tengen took over as Tanjiro’s mentor and ally.
Perhaps the only anime character to match Tengen’s flashy mentorship is Satoru Gojo from Jujutsu Kaisen. Both serve their series as mentor figures and possess fighting techniques that are respected by both villains and fans alike.
ten Tengen and Satoru know how to raise their voice above the crowd
To date, Tengen Uzui is the only demon slayer being shown shouting Inosuke Hashibira. It’s an impressive feat considering Inosuke’s inflated ego and lack of decorum when dealing with his peers.
Satoru might not be the loudest character in Jujutsu Kaisen, but he does not hesitate to raise his voice to express his enthusiasm. Announcing Yuji’s return from the grave, he made sure his voice could be heard by Principal Gakuganji and each of the students present for Kyoto’s goodwill exchange event.
9 Gojo is one of the few anime characters who can match Tengen’s flashiness.
No one surpasses Tengen Uzui in terms of glitz, but there are some who come close. Satoru Gojo is one of the few anime characters who can match Tengen’s flashy behavior thanks to the global nature of his cursed technique.
Despite his relatively calm disposition, Satoru’s brilliance is something that cannot be missed. The Blindfolded Mentor doesn’t need to show his personality because of the way his glowing blue eyes and powerful cursed techniques flash in battle. Tengen may have beaten Satoru in the fashion department, but he’s never produced anything as flashy as Satoru’s Infinite Void.
8 The musical score is as mastered in Demon Slayer as Limitless in Jujutsu Kaisen
An anime mentor without the skills to hold the weight of weaker party members is not a good anime mentor. Both Tengen and Sotaru are capable of leading their students to victory with their superpowered techniques.
Tengen Uzui’s Musical Score Technique allows him limited precognitive abilities as long as he survives long enough to use it. With this technique, Tengen was able to track a higher-ranking demon with just one hand. On the other hand, Satoru inherited two of the most powerful cursed techniques from the Jujutsu Kaisen power system. The combined power of the Limitless technique and 6 Eyes is enough to make even the most powerful wizards and cursed spirits respect Gojo in battle.
7 Tengen and Satoru have a diverse set of combat skills
The former shinobi turned Demon Slayer carries a full arsenal into battle. Along with his signature Nichirin blades, Tengen carries wisteria-infused smoke bombs, poison kunai, and sonic breathbending wherever he goes. Sound Hashira’s skill set is incredibly diverse, but it’s not nearly as omnipotent as Satoru Gojo’s.
Gojo’s arsenal includes two of the most powerful cursed techniques in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen, cursed energybending, and martial arts training that can rival the best of the best. The various skills that Gojo and Tengen bring to the table make them virtually unstoppable.
6 Both Gojo and Uzui have the silver locks to match their skills
One of the first things fans will notice when comparing Satoru Gojo and Tengen Uzui is their beautiful silver hair. In the world of anime, silver hair goes hand in hand with strength. Ever since the days of Kakashi Hatake, fans have been searching for silver-haired characters who fill the role of super-powered sensei. Current fans are lucky to have two.
5 Tengen’s confidence is matched only by Satoru’s irreverence
Tengen and Gojo are two of the most confident anime characters of all time. While there are plenty of proud anime heroes who never doubt themselves, it’s rare to find a character who can speak as boldly as these two in the face of adversity.
The way Tengen embraced his flashy personality against a higher ranked demon is inspiring. Satoru is too powerful to inhale, but the way he toyed with Jogo before separating his cursed head from his cursed body showed a level of confidence few can match.
4 No silver-haired sensei is complete without his powerful underlings
No silver-haired sensei is complete without a student of limitless potential. Jujutsu Kaisen shows Satoru recruiting the next generation of wizards who he swears will one day surpass his own strength. That’s saying a lot considering Satoru’s power level, but Yuta, Yuji, and Megumi all show promise.
Tengen may not be as committed to teaching as Satoru, but his time with Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke can be considered mentorship. While fighting alongside the three young Demon Slayers, Tengen put on a flashy display of what it means to be a Hashira.
3 Tengen and Satoru are both acting suspicious despite their fight for good guys
Tengen’s introduction to the early Arc Entertainment District is marred by controversy. Tanjiro says it best when he refuses to acknowledge Tengen’s status as Hashira due to his suspicious behavior.
Satoru Gojo is suspicious in a different way than Tengen. Instead of trying to kidnap his underlings, Gojo justifies suspicion by serving the men he openly disagrees with. Instead of using his power to revamp the jujutsu society, Satoru blindly kills cursed spirits for a group of shady senior officials.
2 Both men are very tall and very charismatic
The physical similarities between Satoru Gojo and Tengen Uzui are surprisingly consistent across the board. Both are incredibly attractive and framed by gorgeous silver hair. Plus, both are well over 6 feet tall. Tengen Uzui is 6ft 6in and Gojo is just three inches shorter at 6’3″.
1 Satoru and Tengen lost loved ones to the dark side
Satoru Gojo’s past will be examined under the microscope in the next season of Jujutsu Kaisen. Manga fans already know that this new season will offer insight into Gojo’s past relationship with Suguru Geto. To sum up, Gojo and Geto were best friends and peers at Tokyo Jujutsu High until Suguru turned his back on the jujutsu community.
Tengen has a similar story, but it involves his father and brothers rather than a best friend. After training alongside his brothers as the last shinobi, Tengen abandoned his father’s mission and left behind a brother whose mind was lost in a web of lies and murderous intent.
