===Friends & Allies===
* '''[[Kondou Isao]]''': Similar to many others, Sougo constantly teases Kondou and calls him by his nickname, Gorilla. However, Kondou is the only person besides [[Mitsuba]] whom Sougo is openly loyal to, loyal to the point where he sees himself as only one fitting to the position of vice-commander. This admiration stems from when he was a child--Kondou was the first person to make friends with him and became somewhat of a brotherly figure. Sougo went as far as threatening to kill an important foreign official for insulting Kondou and later pretending to betray Hijikata so that he could remain by Kondou's side.

* '''[[Hijikata Toushirou]]''': [[File:Wake Up Sougo.jpg|thumb|[[Episode 85]]]] He often commits acts of violence toward Hijikata in a deadpan manner or with a sarcastic smarmy attitude, leaving the audience constantly wondering whether he is really serious about killing Hijikata or not. For now, he just seems to play dangerous jokes. Sougo's ambition is to become Vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, the same position Hijikata currently holds.[[File:Sougo and Hijikata Episode 10 Woof.jpg|thumb|left|[[Episode 10]]]] Events during the [[Okita Mitsuba Arc]] hint that he is jealous of Hijikata always appearing to usurp the attention of those near and dear to him. It is an undisputed claim that he is the strongest swordsman, but Hijikata can bring out the weaknesses in him, shown in [[Episode 86]] when Sougo loses a match to him. A list of his 'attacks' on [[Hijikata Toushirou]] can be found '''''[[Trivia#.27Attacks.27_on_Hijikata_by_Okita|here]]'''''. Despite the fact that he always tries to kill him, Sougo considers Hijikata as an important figure and a friend, treating him with respect in serious situations as shown in the Prison Island arc.

* '''[[Sakata Gintoki]]''': [[File:Vlcsnap-2014-02-06-07h04m34s10.png|thumb|[[Episode 86]]]] Referring to him "Boss", Okita seems to get along rather well with Gintoki. [[File:Sougo and Gintoki Episode 183.jpg|thumb|left|[[Episode 183]]]] After a rough beginning, the two find common ground in their love of torturing and humiliating Hijikata. After witnessing the fight between Gintoki and Hijikata, Okita said he would love to clash swords with Gintoki one day. Although a hit from Hijikata would often result in a violent retribution from Okita, he doesn't seem to have a problem with taking a lecture or a knock on the head from Gintoki. When his sister came to visit, Okita bribed Gintoki with chocolate parfaits to pretend that he was his best friend. Though this was a charade meant to reassure his sister, Okita does consider Gintoki to be one of his 'three rotten friends.'

* [[Kagura|'''Kagura:''']]''' '''[[File:Kagura, Shinpachi and Sougo Episode 20-0.jpg|thumb|180x180px|Sougo and Kagura fighting in [[Episode 20]]]]Sougo calls her 'China Girl' or 'China'. After the Cherry Blossom party, they would often fight whenever they had a chance. Kagura is one of the only female characters in the [[File:Kagura and Sougo Episode 312-0.jpg|left|thumb|247x247px|Sougo saves Kagura from falling.]]entire series whom he has apologized to, the other being his sister. He's the only one who notices Kagura is faking her illness in Episode 297, but he chooses to sit back and sadistically watch her 'literally' dig her own grave. In the Yagyu Arc, when Kagura was in danger, Sougo saves her and states that only he was allowed to beat her; later, however, when Sougo bends her wrist the wrong way in his 'attempt' to mend it, Kagura retaliates by breaking his leg. When the two realise they will be unable to fight by themselves, they reluctantly team up, showing that despite their ongoing rivalry towards each other, they can work together when needed. This can further be seen in the Rokkaku Arc--when Kagura was shot in the leg and being chased by a group of terrorists, Sougo helped her escape at great risk to his own life. In chapter 534/Episode 312, he manages to save Kagura at the last minute when she falls from a cliff, holding on even though she shouts to let go before the incoming arrows come their way. He also tries to protect her from Nobume, whom he believed intended to kill her. In the aftermath of the Farewell Shinsengumi arc, it is not clear whether Sougo actively seeks Kagura out to say goodbye, but they have one last, bittersweet fight before he departs, during which they both tell each other to not lose to anybody else, echoing Sougo's earlier words in the Yagyu arc.

* '''[[Saitou Shimaru]]''': He respects him more than other Shinsengumi members. He has only heard him speak once at a convenience store where he had in actuality fallen asleep.

* '''[[Katsura Kotarou]]''': Formerly a wanted man due to his involvement in terrorist activities against the Bakufu, Katsura was constantly attacked by the Shinsengumi, especially Sougo. They become allies later during the Farewell Shinsengumi Arc.
