How Is Ultra Instinct Different From Ultra Ego?

In a way, Ultra Ego is the antithesis of Ultra Instinct. A god of destruction teaches Ultra Ego and an angel teaches the Ultra Instinct. The forms hold some resemblance to the teachers. The first difference must have been noticed by the above-mentioned description of both abilities. Ultra Instinct increases the user’s defense whilst Ultra Ego focuses on the offensive ability.

Ultra Ego is used at optimum power when the user is lost in the thrill and lust of the battle. He needs to be in the mind of destruction and chaos to use this power properly. In Ultra Instinct, the user fights with a certain finesse.

Ultra Ego is more of a chaotic way of fighting with the user letting his emotions take the reign. Ultra Instinct is the opposite as the user needs to get rid of all unnecessary emotions to achieve it. These are the major differences between Ultra Ego and Ultra Instinct.
