Many candidates can attempt the Ten Tests at once, but only one can succeed. There is a version of the Ten Tests where it says that the slain contestants could not be brought back to life, which was a change to the tests, but I cannot find it in the Fortunate Succession.

The Red Emperor was seen as Emperor Yelmgatha's heir, but he did pass the Ten Tests while Yelmgatha was still alive and they were both seen as Emperors. I think that is a very unusual time.
