Does Nezuko Become Human in Demon Slayer?

Demon Slayer is arguably one of the most popular animated series of the past decade. It is a great combination of comedy, action tragic, thrill suspense, and horror

Following the release date of the record-breaking film Demon Slayer: Infinity Train the fans are eagerly anticipating the return of its second season.

The coming season will reveal many facts regarding the Sun Breathing Technique and Demon Slayer Mark. We’ll also find out more about the power of Nezuko

So far, the show hasn’t made any progress in reaching the ultimate goal of Tanjiro Kamado, which is to transform his sole relative, Nezuk, back to her normal self.

In the very first episode, we are shown the horror that swept over the family of Kamado. The house that was filled with laughter and joy was instead filled with the blood of dead and rotting bodies. In his whole family, which included parents and siblings, Tanjiro was the only one to find Nezuko alive.

The other victims were killed with the help of an undead demon that was later revealed to be the main adversary, Muzan Kibutsuji. 

When she was still breathing, Tanjiro made haste to transport herself to the hospital. However, on the route, Nezuko began to attack her and demonstrated her strength and superhuman power.

It proved that she was not a human anymore and was instead changed into the form of a demon. Amid her attacks, they encountered Giyuu, the demon slayer, who wanted to take down Nezuko to save Tanjiro. 

But, Tanjiro didn’t let Giyuu cause harm to her, and Nezuko also displayed the signs of her human being in good health.

After pondering the issue, Giyuu recommended Tanjiro meet Sakonji Urokodaki, who was an ex-demon hunter. 

Urokodaki told Tanjiro about demons as well as the Demon Slayer Corp. He also explained to Tanjiro about Muzan, who was the one responsible for the destruction of his family.

He assisted Tanjiro with training and showed him how to become the demon-slayer. Tanjiro has made it his aim to turn Nezuko back into a human and take on Muzan. We will examine the possibility that Nezuko was able to transform back into a human. 

This article is full of spoilers from the Demon Slayer manga.

Can Demons Transform Back into Humanity?

Although it is a fact that human beings can easily turn into demons, they cannot do the same. Muzan Kibutsuji, who was the first demon, was the sole being that could be capable of transforming a human into a demon. Demons are not old and have endured for centuries or millennia.

If they’re not killed by demon slayers, exposed to the sun, or killed by certain methods, they aren’t likely to be killed. Hunger isn’t enough to cause them to die. 

Therefore, for these creatures to return to human beings is not something you’ve ever heard of before. In the Asakusa Arc, Tanjiro happened to meet two demons, Tamayo and Yushiro.

The demons were the sole ones, except the demon Nezuko, who were completely free of Muzan’s influence. Tamayo holds the title of doctor, and he has a deep understanding of humans as well as demons. 

Tamayo is the sole demon besides Muzan, who can transform a human into a demon. Although she did it only once to Yushiro, and that was after she was mortally sick.

Following a meeting, Tanjiro was informed that she was not alone. Tamayo has never heard of a demon turning back. 

But, she offered the demon some assistance and began to study the issue with the expectation that Tanjiro would be able to bring her blood from the 12 Kizuki, which would aid in finding a solution.

Can Nezuko Transformed Back into a Human?

Yes! Nezuko can return to being human because of Tamayo’s treatment. Tamayo is a demon that has dedicated her entire life to studying demons and their transformations. 

When she first met Nezuko, Tanjiro, and Tanjiro, she told them that she’d find a solution if Tanjiro offered her the blood of the twelve strongest demons that are under Muzan.

Through the entire series, it was demonstrated that each time Tanjiro overcomes any of the twelve Kizuki in the series, he’ll give Tamayo the sample of blood. 

In Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Chapter 196, Tamayo was the one to give her the drug that made her human again. This could mean that there’s still hope for demons everywhere.


In the final chapter, we witness her gradually transform from demon to human and then regain all the memories she had when she was human and demon, and she is thinking about these memories. She also begins speaking, and we can hear her shouting at Tanjiro.

Who is Nezuko Kamado?

Nezuko is the sister of the protagonist, Tanjiro Kamado. She grew up within the mountain ranges with her parents and siblings. Her brother was the one who was a charcoal seller in the nearby village on the mountain. 

On the day he returned to work in the late hours, Tanjiro saw his entire family dead, except Nezuko. She was, however, severely injured, and it appeared that Nezuko was injured as she attempted to shield her siblings. 

When Tanjiro had been taking the one living relative to the doctor, Nezuko was transformed into the form of a demon. In the aftermath of her transformation, she attacks her older brother. Then, she reverted to her normal self and was trying to curb her desire to eat human flesh.

As Nezuko was trying to prevent her back from attacking Tanjiro, the two were stopped by Giyu Tomioka. Giyu Tomioka has the status of a water Hashira who fights demons before coming to take down Nezuko. When he sees Nezuko still in her human senses and fighting to save her younger brother, she is spared by the Kamado siblings. 

Giyu tells Tanjiro to accompany Nezuko to meet Sakonji Urokodaki. Her elder brother was preparing to become a demon slayer, whereas Nezuko had been sleeping for two years. Thus, Urokodaki predicts that Nezuko, rather than eating humans, is sleeping to recharge her energy.

After Tanjiro transforms into a demon-slayer, Nezuko accompanies her elder brother in slaying evil demons. Later, she meets the good demon Lady Tamayo who tricks her into believing that everyone is part of her family, and she must protect them. Together, they fight many powerful demons. 

Then, Inosuke and Zenitsu join the group. Additionally, Zenitsu has a crush on Inosuke, who is also a crush on. Nezuko must go through numerous trials due to being the only demon to not devour humans since many are unaware of Tamayo. 

This is even though Kagaya Ubuyashiki, the leader of the Demon Slayer Corps, prohibits targeting her. Many Hashiras are opposed to the action however after she proved her worth, she’s now accepted as part of the Demon Slayer Corp. She is fighting Muzan and her enemies.
