The secrets of the most potent Pillars of the Demon Slayer are revealed here.
Shinobu Kocho has played a crucial role in the success of Demon Slayer Corp. Her importance is not limited to the battlefield. Her lightning-fast fighting style is complemented by her Insect Breathing skills and a modified Nichirin Blade. Shinobu is a big threat to demons because of her chemistry knowledge, but she is also a great assistance to humanity.
Shinobu wanted to create a world free of evil and at peace with itself above all else. Shinobu, like her fellow Hashira, desires nothing less than the complete and total destruction of Muzan, the Demon King, and her anger sometimes gets in the way of that goal.
Kyojuro Rengoku, who comes from a long family of Flame Breathing swordsmen, takes great satisfaction in his work. The promise he made to his dying mother, that he would always utilize his extraordinary strength to protect others, is a driving force in his life.
Kyojuro is one of the strongest characters in Kagaya Ubuyashiki’s group of Pillars and a skilled fighter in the Demon Slayer Corps. Many of his fellow soldiers look up to him, including Giyu Tomioka and Mitsuri Kanroji. Even though Kyojuro loses his life in battle against Akaza, the Flame Hashira still triumphs.
The legendary swordsmanship of Muichiro’s ancestor, Michikatsu Tsugikuni, may have been passed down through the generations. Muichiro’s genetic inheritance gives him the strength to join the Demon Slayer Corps at such a young age.
Quickly becoming a Hashira, and hence the official Mist Pillar, is Muichiro. Muichiro’s skill with the sword is unrivaled; he is on par with Yoriichi Type Zero in a duel. The defeat and beheading of Upper Rank 5 Gyokko is Muichiro’s crowning achievement.
Even before she joined the Corp, Sanemi Shinazugawa had extensive experience battling demons. His unyielding determination as a demon hunter is understandable. In addition, Sanemi had to murder his demonic mother when he was a child.
Sanemi’s Wind Breathing skills put him on par with the Upper Moon Demons, who ultimately prove to be no match for him. There aren’t many warriors who can take on the Wind Hashira.
Under Kagaya Ubuyashiki’s command, Gyomei Himejima is the most formidable demon slayer. Using a spiked ball and hand-axe on a chain (both manufactured from the same materials as Nichiren Blades), Gyomei attacks with pinpoint accuracy despite his blindness.
Gyomei uses chanting and meditation to boost his overall strength, but waking his Demon Slayer Mark significantly increases his abilities. It is at this point that the Stone Hashira becomes an unrivaled fighter, one who even Kokushibo must consider seriously.
