Each member of Kemetsu No Yaiba's Demon Slayer Corps is powerful in their own way, but this is how they'd stack up when rated together.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba is the breakout smash of this anime season, and the manga is already quite popular for being only a few years old. Set during Japan's Taisho Period but with demons running amok, Demon Slayer follows a little boy named Kamado Tanjiro who, after his family is slain and his sister turned into a demon, searches for the monster that destroyed his family and for a method to turn his sister back into a human.
In a world with demons running around, Tanjiro needs an organization to protect the population from demonic threats. Enter the Demon Slayer Corps. Tackling the most formidable demons demands powerful demon slayers. Here are the most powerful demon slayers, ranked!
15. Genya Shinazugawa
It is widely accepted that the Demon Slayer Genya Shinazugawa is a lesser threat than Upper Moon 1 perceived him to be during the battle with Genya and several Hashira. When Genya takes a bite off of a Demon's power, he gains their talents and uses them to create his own Blood Demon Art.
With the power to regenerate and the Nichirin pistol, he has a formidable arsenal. It's not like any of the slayers on this list could take on an Upper Moon on their own.
14. Inosuke Hashibara
Inosuke was able to endure the same harsh training as Zenitsu and Tanjiro, but he needed some encouragement to keep him going.
He is able to accomplish anything he sets his mind to and even survives his fight with Upper Moon 2. Inosuke, who was nurtured in the highlands, possesses the agility and sharp senses of a wild animal because of his upbringing. This allows him to move quickly and powerfully.
13. Zenitsu Agatsuma
Even though he says that he was compelled to take on the role of a Demon Slayer to pay off a debt, Zenitsu is not a man to be taken lightly; he is, in fact, a master of disguise.
When Zenitsu is unconscious, he is extremely powerful. It is only when he falls asleep that his body uses its Thunder Breathing Style to defend itself. In the midst of combat, he proved that he is a skilled fighter, fighting Upper Moon 6.
12. Kanao Tsuyuri
As soon as Kanao encountered Tanjiro, he could tell that she was the closest thing to a Hashira he had ever seen in terms of aptitude. Shinobu Kocho and Kanae Kocho trained her, and she was one of the few who survived the Final Selection.
As with Inosuke, she is a crucial part of defeating Upper Moon 2, but she must employ a slow-motion technique to perceive the universe.
11. Shinobu Kocho
Although she may appear laid-back, Shinobu, the first of the Demon Slayer Corps' Hashira (Pillars), wears her friendly demeanor to disguise the fearsome Demon Slayer she truly is.
For Shinobu's breath style, he uses the Insect Breath Style, a branch of Flower Breath. Infusing her attacks with wisteria poison makes quick work of any demon she encounters, even if the weapon itself isn't very powerful. With her enormous poison knowledge, she is far more lethal than a sword-wielding demon killer.
10. Obanai Iguro
Obanai is regarded as the second-weakest Hashira, behind Shinobu. Obanai, unlike Shinobu, was able to activate his Demon Slayer mark.
When he loses his vision, he is able to continue fighting at a high level. When he's out in the wild, he relies on his snake, Kaburamaru, to keep him updated on his surroundings.
9. Tanjiro Kamado
Tanjiro, the protagonist of the series, is the next name on the list. A Demon Slayer is a person who dedicates their life to hunting for and killing demons. As a slayer, Tanjiro's empathy for demons sets him apart from the rest of the pack. The demons he murders, certainly, but he recognizes that most of them had no choice in the matter.
It is later revealed that Tanjiro is capable of using the "Dance of the Fire God" breathing method, taught to him by his father, which is exclusive to the Kamado clan. Defeating many of the Upper Moons in the series relied heavily on Tanjiro.
8. Mitsuri Kanroji
Demon Slayer has a tendency to have Demon Slayers that aren't as dangerous as they appear to be. Demon Slayers like Mitsuri Kanroji, the Corps's Love Pillar, are among them. Muscle density eight times that of a typical person makes Mitsuri immensely powerful, despite her small limbs and modest demeanor. Despite the fact that the human body is not designed to endure these kinds of blows, she nevertheless managed to rip off Muzan's arm.
Mitsuri employs the Breath of Love method and wields a blade only she can master. Mitsuri utilizes her sword like a whip instead of a standard sword because it is so thin and delicate. Her power and distinctive weapon make her the Pillar with the fastest techniques among the other pillars.
7. Tengen Uzui
Most people's first impression of Tengen Uzui is that he's a formidable Demon Slayer. Originally a shinobi, this flashy demon-killer is now a demon hunter. Because of this, he fled home and joined the Demon Slayer Corps, where he became known as the Sound Pillar.
Although Tengen shares his other Pillars' ability to outrun demons in terms of strength and speed, his breathing technique makes him distinct. A breathing technique peculiar to Tengen called the Breath of Sound is used by him in his battles.
6. Kyojuro Rengoku
The Flame Pillar of the Corps is this joyful Demon Slayer. Demons are engulfed in a sea of flames as a result of his Breath of Flames technique (not to be confused with Tanjiro's Dance of the Fire God). Even Rengoku agreed to take Tanjiro under his wing and teach him.
A demon of the Upper Moons named Akaza was able to hold Rengoku at bay for a short period of time before taking him out, but he was able to defend the 200 passengers of the train he was fighting in.
5. Muichiro Tokito
Muichiro, despite his appearance, is a devoted Demon Slayer and one of the most powerful of his kind. Mist Pillar, uses the Breath of Mist style, which is based on Breath of Wind.
A demon of the Upper Moon is no match for Muichiro's mastery of his breathing style, which has allowed him to create an altogether new shape for it. In addition, he obtained the Demon Slayer Mark, which allowed him to easily dispatch the Upper Moon demon.
4. Sanemi Shinazugawa
As a result of losing so many people to demons, Sanemi has a profound loathing for them and is prone to lash out at everyone who crosses his path. As a demon-killer for many years, Sanemi's body is covered with scars.
Sanemi's prowess with the blade and mastery of the Breath of Wind style surprised even Kokushibo, the Upper Moon One demon with hundreds of years of talent and experience.
3. Giyu Tomioka
Tanjiro's first encounter with a Demon Slayer was with Giyu Tomioka. Tomioka points them to Urokodaki and the Demon Slayer Corps after seeing a freshly turned Nezuko guard Tanjiro. Even though Tomioka isn't the most gregarious person, his fellow Pillars regard him as one of the most powerful members of the group.
Breath of water style is Tomioka's specialty as Water Pillar and he is an expert in it. When he faced the Father Spider Demon and a Lower Moon demon, Tomioka didn't even have to put on a brave front. The most competent Water Pillar in the last 50 years, even Akaza, an Upper Moon monster, claimed.
2. Gyomei Himejima
Gyomei Himejima, the Stone Pillar of the Demon Slaying Corps, is at the top of this list. Hand-axe with spiked flail attached with lengthy chain is Gyomei's weapon of choice instead of Nichirin Blades, which are typically used by Demon Slayers. Gyomei's Breath of Stone technique makes him the strongest Demon Slayer in the world.
All of Tanjiro and Inosuke's other Pillars believe Gyomei to be their strongest Demon Slayer. Furthermore, Kokushibu claims that Gyomei's innate physical abilities have been trained to their maximum pinnacle, and the Upper Moon 1 demon admits that he has never seen a warrior of Gyomei's ability in the last 300 years.
1. Yoriichi Tsugikuni
No doubt, Yoriichi is the strongest demon slayer ever to have existed. In order to recreate his actions, a fighting doll built in his likeness required numerous limbs. As a child, he was a genius who nearly killed Muzan with his strength. The demon was so terrified of Yoriichi that he never appeared in front of him again.
