Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotōge. The story follows Tanjiro Kamado, a boy who becomes a demon-repellent after his family has been slaughtered and his younger sister, Nezuko, is transformed into a demon. As a loyal reader of manga Kimetsu no Yaiba, you must know about the Top 10 Most Powerful Kimetsu No Yaiba Male Characters below.
10. Tanjiro Kamado
The second character on the list is the protagonist, Tanjiro Kamado. Though a newbie, Tanjiro shows great promise. He is intelligent, has enhanced sense of smell, and able to critically analyse attack pattern of his opponents and plan his attacks accordingly. The reason he is now a Demon Slayer, is to hunt the demon who murdered his family and turned his sister into a demon. He practices Water Breathing Style, and later, the Dance of the Fire God peculiar to Kamado family. Even though he has a ton of potential, Tanjiro still has a lot to learn, that is why he is placed tenth on this list.
9. Kyojuro Rengoku
Kyojuro Rengoku. A Hashira with strict principles, who believe that those who have power should protect the helpless. He practices Breath of Flames, and has a strangely pleasant manner. Kyojuro displays ridiculous strength of his hand and arm, and able to move lightning-fast.
He agrees to take Tanjiro as his disciple and trains him. At one time, Rengoku managed to fight demons as well as protecting 200 passengers of a train. He was also able to withstand Akaza’s attacks, even though sadly, he was later finished off by that Upper Moon Three demon.
8. Muichiro Tokito
Muichiro Tokito is slightly air-headed and often gets lost in his own thoughts. Nevertheless, he is one of the strongest Demon Slayer there is. He is dedicated and excellent at sword-fighting. Even though his body is small, his overwhelming physical strength casts shadows on Tanjiro’s. Muichiro uses Breath of Mist style, which is the derivation of the Breath of Wind style. He has mastered his style, and with his unlocked Demon Slayer Mark, Muichiro is capable to kill Upper Moon Demon without many difficulties. He also can see the see-through world.
7. Sanemi Shinazugawa
Sanemi has lost many people he cherishes to demons, this constitutes most part of his hatred towards demons. Due to his years of fighting with demons, he acquires many scars on his body, showing his abundant battle experience. He has been killing demons even before he knew about Demon Slayer Corp.
Akaza respects the strong. He likes to fight with strong demon slayers, and looks down upon the weak. When Akaza was a kid, he killed 67 swordsmen with his bare hands. He even was still human when it happened. He even was able to match Tanjiro and Giyuu in a battle. Akaza has the Upper Moon Three title, this itself shows how great his power is. He too managed to defeat Kyojuro Rengoku. Akaza would have won against Tanjiro and Giyu and killed them easily, if it wasn’t because he had lost his will to fight.
Doma is the Demon Moon Two. From the outside, he appears friendly, approachable with charismatic aura. But he is actually deadly. He lacks emotion, and likes to devour his followers and other young women to become stronger. He apparently never goes all out and unleashes his full power. He defeated Kane the flower pillar, and Shinobu the insect pillar easily. He is too strong, that even his ice clone can substitute him in fighting the duo. He is considered as the third strongest Demon in the series.
4. Gyomei Himejima
Even though Gyomei is blind, he is, without a doubt, the strongest Demon Slayer. Wielding a powerful hand-ax with a spiked flail, and supported by his inhumane strength which has reached the peak through Total Concentration technique, Gyomei Himejima easily make the other Hashiras seem inferior. He is a Stone Pillar, who practices Breath of Stone.
Kokushibo is a member of the twelve demon moons, with a position of Upper Moon One. He is the most powerful of them all. Kokushibo is a Breath of the Moon user, and a very talented swordsman. At one time, he is outnumbered by three strongest Pillars. But even they could only stop him temporarily. As a breath user, Kokushibo has an insane amount of strength and reflexes, supported by his demon constitution.
2. Muzan Kibutsuji
As the first demon to exist, Muzan is the strongest Demon in existence and possesses incredible amount of strength. By just giving away his blood to other demons, he can make those demons stronger, with the condition that they do not die first. This shows how powerful he is.
He is easily able to defend himself against five Hashira and Tanjiro at the same time, who was even slowly mastering the breath of the sun.
He has lived around 1000 years, and no one has been able to kill him. No matter how his enemies chopped off his head, he simply regenerates. Only the sun can defeat him.
1. Yoriichi Tsugikuni
He is the creator of the first Breath Styles, the younger twin brother of Michikatsu Tsugikuni or Kokushibo. Yoriichi is the strongest known character in the entire history of the series and the most powerful swordsman. He is a Demon Slayer born with the Demon Slayer Mark and See-Through World. He himself was able to force Muzan Kibutsuji into a corner, until he managed to escape. Yoriichi was considered to be a real monster by Muzan. Before his death, he fought his twin brother. Inspite of his blindness and old age, he managed to gain the upper hand in the fight, before he eventually died standing up without bruises nor injury.
