The Demon Slayer Corps is comprised of some of the most powerful beings in the Demon Slayer manga universe, although even they have their heavyweights. These swordsmasters, known as the Hashira (or “Pillars”), possess talents and traits that would make even the most powerful Demons wary in a one-on-one encounter. Kagaya Ubuyashiki and the Pillars are humanity’s first line of defence against Muzan Kibutsuji and his Twelve Demon Moons. Examine this list of the top Demon Slayer Most Powerful Pillars.
When it comes to Shinobu, this Insect Hashira is also very strong on her own. Shinobu’s style of “Insect Breathing” comes from Kanae’s style of “Flower Breathing,” which shows how close they are.
Shinobu seems calm and friendly, but she hates Demons very much because they killed her sister. This made her want to keep improving her skills until they reached the level of Hashira, even though she doesn’t have the strength to cut off a Demon’s head or many of the other superhuman skills that other Pillars have.
Tengen Uzui was born into one of the final Shinobi families to survive. Even though poisoned and losing a hand, Tengen was an all-around effective fighter due to the abilities he acquired during his upbringing.
The guy embodies his favourite term, flamboyance, in every aspect of his appearance, from the nunchuck-style wielding of his Nichirin Blades to his jewel-encrusted attire. Tengen’s Sound Breathing enables him to record his struggles in his mind as a musical score and act accordingly.
This Demon Slayer powerful pillar died several years before the main Demon Slayer plot. Kanae Kocho, a master of Flower Breathing (derived from Water Breathing), was a gentle woman with a strict side. Her breathing method made her a great warrior, and she died only after defeating the wicked Demon Doma. Despite this, Kanae fought Doma until daylight before being severely wounded, demonstrating both extraordinary skill and stamina.
Being descended from a long line of Flame-Breathing swordsmen, Kyojuro Rengoku took great pride in his profession. The vow Kyojuro made to his mother to utilise his tremendous strength to protect others is a major source of his dedication.
Kyojuro Rengoku is regarded as one of the most powerful Demon Slayers. His achievements include unleashing a sea of flames on his opponents utilising the Breath of Flame method. Aside from that, he knows how to protect others, once dividing his attention between saving train passengers and defeating many Demons!
This respected Demon Slayer was not only a Thunder Hashira, but he was also a brilliant teacher who dedicated his life to instructing the next generation of Demon Slayers. Despite his firm conviction in his students, he was devastated when his former protégé Kaigaku betrayed the Corps and joined the Twelve Kizuki. Jigoro committed ritualistic suicide as a result of his anguish.
Sakonji Urokodaki’s reputation as a “Cultivator of Swordsmen” is well-respected among Demon Slayers; attaining the Hashira rank and surviving to old age are accomplishments that are well-known throughout the Corp.
It is said that Sakonji wears his tengu mask because demons tease him about his kind face. In addition to possessing a good sense of smell, he shares this quality with Tanjiro Kamado.
She is shy, kind, and sensitive. Her soft personality is the exact opposite of how strong she is. Even though Mitsuri didn’t have a blade, she was strong enough to rip off the tentacles of the original Demon Muzan without using it.
Mitsuri, on the other hand, made her own “Love Breathing” when she became a Hashira. This lets her use her thin sword like a whip and makes her incredibly fast as well as strong. Those who think too little of this Demon Slayer will pay for it.
Harsh and stern, this Serpent Breathing master is also one of the most dedicated Demon Slayer most powerful pillars. Obanai Iguro was able to confront the first Demon Muzan despite being blinded and badly wounded because of his resolve and ability to twist and bend his blade like a slithering serpent. Obanai Iguro’s will is unrivalled, despite not being the most strong Hashira.
Obanai’s remarks are also highly abrasive, yet he makes it plain when someone has earned his favour. He does not conceal his attraction to Mitsuri the Love Pillar, although she appears to be completely unaware of it.
Muichiro inherited swordsmanship as a descendent of the original Breath users and is a master of Mist Breathing despite being only 14 years old (he joined the Demon Slayer Corp at around 10 years old).
Muichiro attributes the revival of his memories to Tanjiro, adding that his father likewise possessed kind red eyes.
The scars on this Hashira’s body show how long he has been fighting Demons. Sanemi Shinazugawa is a master of Wind Breathing. He is known for being rude, stubborn, and angry. Aside from being a great swordsman, Sanemi’s blood is known to make Demons feel high. This can work both for and against him, since Demons are distracted by the smell of his blood but want to feel its high.
Sanemi’s ruthlessness as a Demon Slayer is understandable given that his blood is like gluten-free liquor to demons and that he was forced to kill his demon-infected mother, who had just finished consuming his smaller siblings, when he was young.
Giyu Tomioka is a skilled swordsman, but he did not always recognise this. The patterned half of his haori is worn in commemoration of Sabito, a young swordsman who sacrificed his life during his Final Selection Exam to save the lives of his fellow students.
Giyu, encouraged by his peers, accepted his position as Pillar and activated his Flame Mark. Giyu is also the one who requested that Sakonji Urokodaki teach Tanjiro and that Nezuko’s inner strength be considered reliable.
Gyomei Himejima is the highest and unquestionably the strongest of the Demon Slayer Pillars under the leadership of Kagaya Ubuyashiki. Despite being blind, Gyomei attacks with pinpoint accuracy utilising a spiky ball and hand-axe on a chain manufactured from the same materials as Nichirin Blades.
Gyomei’s Stone Techniques are distinct from those of Breath users; he increases and focuses his strength through chanting and meditation to levels comparable to those of demons.
