Demon Slayer Main Characters Ranked

1. Tanjiro Kamado

Demon Slayer’s protagonist is Tanjiro Kamado. He joined the Demon Slayer Corps to turn Nezuko Kamado human.

Tanjiro has demon empathy. This delays his attack. Demons have sometimes used this pause to exploit his comprehension and restart fight.

He matures and becomes more measured and accurate over time.

His courage in protecting the weak forces him to treat his opponents with respect and honour, whether they’re humans or demons.

Tanjiro’s fury and revenge are growing. His pleasant exterior hides this. Tanjiro seemed mindless, as many transitioning people do. 

Tragically, Tanjiro’s entire family died but Nezuko survived. This makes him a relatable and likeable protagonist. 

Tanjiro has potential. From his tremendous struggles to his dormant promise, one can only hope he can live the life he and his sister deserved before tragedy struck.

2. Nezuko Kamado

She’s Tanjiro Kamado’s and the Demon’s sister. Before Muzan Kibutsuji attacked her, she was human.

She possesses long, claw-like fangs and is fair-skinned.

She’s wearing a pink kimono with a hemp-leaf pattern, a pink liner, a red-and-green checkered hanhaba, and an orange-threaded large obi.

Nezuko was born empathetic, like her brother Tanjiro. She was a compassionate older sister who put her brothers’ needs above her own.

Nezuko doesn’t fear risking her life to protect her friends from demons, even after her rebirth.
Nezuko’s relaxed, kind response to Tanjiro’s apology confirms this.

Her fans want a happy ending for her.

3. Kanao Tsuyuri

Kanao Tsuyuri is the protagonist. Shinobu and Kanae Kocho adopted Tsuguko. She’s a Demon Slayer. 

Kanao has lovely eyes. Pink-lilac lashes frame her blue eyes. Kanao’s adoptive sister Kanae Kocho wears a pink-green butterfly-decorated ponytail. 

Traumatized Kanao is silent and undecided when she meets the Kocho sisters.
As a defence, she repressed her feelings and avoided making judgments.

Kanao defied Shinobu’s requests and made the final decision for herself, indicating her will was improving.

Kanao learns to express herself openly. Her relief when Tanjiro heals, her desire to train alongside Shinobu, and her disbelief at Shinobu’s plot to fight Doma show this. 

During her final confrontation against Muzan Kiritsuji, Kanao regained her ability to communicate her feelings and make her own decisions.

Her mysterious personality fits the Demon Slayer Universe, and her emotional path makes her likeable.

4. Genya Shinazugawa

He’s a Demon Slayer and Wind Hashira’s younger brother.

Genya refuses outside help. He’s not pleasant or polite. He learned to be nicer to Tanjiro. 

Genya’s rejection made Sanemi insecure. He was little compared to his friends. He helped his fellow soldiers despite being gravely hurt. 

This character’s skills are remarkable. Genya gains evil powers by ingesting demon flesh.

The person’s strength determines whether he can restore physical strength. This form temporarily overpowers Aizetsu.

Genya invented his own Blood Demon Art to battle Upper Rank 1 after eating two Upper Ranks (Kokushibo or Hantengu).

Similar to Nezuko’s, Genya’s Blood Demon Arts hurt other demons.

Genya combined his cells with his rifle. The barrel and muzzle have numerous eyes, like Kokushibo’s blade. Its strength and precision should improve.

5. Muzan Kibutsuji

Muzan Kibutsuj is The Demon Slayer’s adversary.


He’s both the Demon King and their progenitor.

Muzan became a demon as he tried to cure his terminal illness millennia ago. His desire is to be fearless and everlasting. 

He fights solar sensitivity.

Muzan is smart, vicious, and cold-hearted.

Muzan is vicious, smart, and cold-hearted. He’s never found quality in anyone and has little respect for subordinates. He only cries when his vision of greatness advances or when his subordinates submit to him. 

His narcissism, pettiness, and perfectionism are well-known.

Given his long life and little hurdles, his egocentrism is understandable.

He’s mostly unconcerned, except of the heat.

This villain fits the story well. His admirers adore him. 

6. Zenitsu Agatsuma

Zenitsu Agatsu is a Demon-slayer.

Young, pale Zenitsu. His brown eyes turn golden, and his expression is terrified. 

Zenitsu is presented as a charlatan who claims he has little time to live because of his Demon Slayer work.
He believes he’s worthless despite his strength.

He couldn’t believe he’d killed any demons and thought Shoichi was Shoichi, although knowing Shoichi was a child without demon-slaying talents.

Despite his weaknesses, Zenitsu consistently meets others’ expectations. When feasible, he’ll make amends. Zenitsu respects his peers and coach Jigoro Kuwajima. 

It looks like a standard comedic relief figure. His breathing method is then demonstrated. 

His unconscious fighting talents show how thoroughly his unconscious has been trained.

7. Inosuke Hashibira

Inosuke Hashibira, a traveling friend of Tanjiro Kamado, is one of the core characters of Demon Slayer. He is also a Demon Slayer in the Demon Slayer Corps.

Inosuke, a medium-height, pale-skinned young man, has a toned, muscular frame, especially in his stomach and arms.


His face is feminine. His eyes are enormous and broad, with long eyelashes, green irises, narrow eyebrows, and a small jaw.

His short, black hair is past his shoulders. The blue tips create a shaggy, uncontrolled fringe that falls over his eyes. 

He’s egotistical and short-tempered, thinking he’s the finest warrior.
He’s dangerous because he underestimates his opponents and refuses to lose.

Inosuke’s childhood among boars may have made him ignorant of human nature. He assumes others will attack him and can’t accept kindness.

8. Giyu Tomioka

Giyu Tomioka, the Demon Slayer’s main support character, is Giyu Tomioka. He is the Demon Slayer Corps’ new water Hashira.

Giyu, a tall, pale, powerful man his age, is emotionless.

He’s sporting a cyan Demon Slayer suit with white leg wraps and dark-blue zori. His socks match his attire. 

Giyu smiles sadly.

Giyu is quiet, has a strong sense of fairness, and has no patience for wasteful people.

Nezuko Kamado survived because to Tanjiro Kamado’s determination, but he kills other demons without remorse, as do other Demon Slayers.

Giyu is protective and loving despite his quiet and stoic nature.


He first reveals this by threatening seppuku for Nezuko and Tanjiro if they devour a person.

9. Kyojuro Rengoku

Kyojuro Rengoku, a Demon Slayer support character, is Kyojuro. He is the Demon Slayer Corps’ new Flame, Hashira.

Young Kyojuro is tall and athletic.

Long, yellow hair with crimson highlights. His bangs are shoulder- and chin-length. Black forked eyebrows and golden eyes with white pupils complete his appearance. 

Kyojuro is unconventional and happy about his Hashira duties.

His intense training and discipline made him affable, kind, and skilled with a sword.

Kyojuro was a loyal warrior who upheld his mother’s principles. His main value is that strong people should help the needy. 

His breathing makes him interesting.

10. Kagaya Ubuyashiki

To his subordinates, Kagaya Ubuyashiki, the commander of the 97th Demon Slayer Corps, is also known as “Oyakata–sama.” He is also the patriarch of the Ubuyashiki family.

Fair-skinned Kagaya with long black hair is gorgeous.

His skin is withering and he’s cursed. It covers his eyes, blinding him. 

He wears a black kimono and a white haki with a pink and purple hazy design.

Kagaya cares about the Demon Slayers. They’re like his kids. He’s good under pressure and admits his faults.

He’s polite but objective and prejudice-free. He acknowledges Tanjiro and Nezuko’s pain and supports their cause even when others disagree. 

He’s flowing, pleasant, and tactful. He employs phrases and intonations to be heard. 
His actions effect the tale greatly. Fans love him for this reason.
