Spoiler warning for anime-only watchers.

Demons in Demon Slayers aren’t your stereotypical demons with horns and a tail. Rather, they are human to a degree and tend to know about various human techniques that borderlines on near replication. That is why Demon Slayer as a series has been long running and even got the anime adaptation.

The villains of the series are far too intriguing along with the characters that are battling them, from outright massacre to carefully hitting a weak point, you are going to see all sorts of battle in this series. For the time being, let us take a look at some of the 8 strongest Demon Slayer Character – Ranked for those who are curious about power scaling of the characters.


Tengen Uzui - Strongest Demon Slayer Character

He might be a flamboyant person with a harem of 3 wives, but there is a reason why he is called the “sound” Hashira. Tengen can easily go toe to toe with an Upper Moon demons without dying, something that automatically places him at one of the strongest Demon Slayer character to be shown in the anime so far.


Zenitsu Agatsuma - Strongest Demon Slayer Character

Surprised? Of course, who will expect the rather wimpy and cowardly Zenitsu to be on this list? He may seem like a weakling at the beginning, but thanks to having mastered a single technique of the thunder breathing ability, Zenitsu has the capability to utterly annihilate demons in seconds. The catch with this power is… It only works when he is sleeping.

Therefore, this ability as of now is extremely limited, however the potential of Zenitsu eventually mastering this ability to be able to use it while awake potentially makes him one of the strongest Demon Slayer characters.


Akaza - Strongest Demon Slayer Character

Of course, the battle-hardened maniac who yearns for great battles is certainly going to be on this list. Akaza of the Upper Moon rank 3 serves as the pinnacle of a “martial” artist. Unlike other demons, Akaza relies more on his fist while utilizing his demonic abilities to annihilate his opponents.

He was for this very reason to even fight against a Hashira and bring him to the brink of death while not even seeming to be as serious, making him one of the strongest Demon slayer characters of the series. However, we may just see even more insane feats from Akaza as more seasons of the anime come by.


Muzan Kibutsuji - Strongest Demon Slayer Character

Said to be the progenitor of all demons and the main antagonist of the series, Muzan is rightfully a terrifying entity, both for his own kin and the Demon Slayer Corps.

While not much has been shown of Muzan in the anime, the very fact that his mere presence causes demons to freeze up in horror is a testament to his insane power, something that the protagonist of the series, Tanjiro, will have to contend with in the near future.

Muzan, due to being the creator of all demons and hence having the strongest power out of all, is clearly one of the strongest Demon Slayer characters in the series.


Tanjiro Kamado - Strongest Demon Slayer Character

To be precise, Tanjiro Kamado may not seem to be the strongest as of now, but his fast learning capabilities (being the user of the sun-breathing techniques) and undying determination make him one of the most likely candidates to be one of the strongest Demon Slayer characters. The very fact that he survives against strong demons that are outranking him speaks volumes about his willpower.

He may not be the strongest in strength, but he is very well close to being one of the strongest Demon Slayer characters in the future and therefore, deserves to be on the list.


Kokushibo - Strongest Demon Slayer Character

The Upper Rank 1 of the Twelve Kizuki, Kokushibo is one of the strongest Demon Slayer character featured in the series, being able to utilize breathing techniques of the Demon Slayer Corps themselves, he is a terrifying opponent to behold.

This character however has yet to make a proper appearance in the anime, therefore fans will have to wait for a while longer to see this force of nature make an appearance.


Gyomei Himejima - Strongest Demon Slayer Character

The Stone Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps, Gyomei Himejima is quite possibly one of the strongest Hashira to be featured in the story and the most ironically emotional.

Gyomei, despite his stone colored sword symbolizing coldness, is anything but stoic and can express emotions through tears even, this is in stark contrast to his terrifying power which makes him one of the strongest Demon Slayer characters.


Yoriichi Tsugikuni - Strongest Demon Slayer Character

The original user of the sun breathing technique and truly the strongest Demon Slayer character in the series, Yoriichi has been regarded as the only Demon Slayer who could threaten Muzan's existence quite easily.

This character so far has made a few appearances in the anime as flashbacks, but not properly.
