  • Big Bad: Muku
  • Brought Down to Normal: Mui can stop a person from using chakra. But luckily it doesn't work on Sage chakra

  • Kick the Dog: Muku stabbing Mui after the latter went through much effort to revive him.
  • Laser-Guided Karma Subverted. Mui being stabbed by Muku after sacrificing the latter to the box would be karmic, had the former revive the latter out of his guilt as a father. The fact that Muku stabs Mui so callously comes across as both ungrateful and major Kick the Dog moment.

  • The Stoic: Mui, the fact that he does a Slasher Smile is usually a hint that he's an imposter.
    • Ryūzetsu is one as well

  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Mui, he framed Naruto for a crime he didn't commit, sent him to jail and extracted his chakra all to see his son again.
  • Winged Humanoid: Satori is certainly winged, but barely passes as humanoid.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: Gamabunta strongly implies with supplementary imagery is what the Box of Paradise causes to those trapped in it to become mindless attackers.
