Nezuko: Demon Form

In the Demon Slayer anime, every demon was a human before, including the first demon, Muzan Kibutsuji. Muzan became a demon by taking medicine made from Blue Lily Spider. For the past 1000 years, Muzan has ruled Japan, devouring human blood to survive and become stronger. To achieve this, Muzan hunted many humans, turning them into demons. Now, let’s delve into the main question: What is Nezuko’s demon form, and how did she become a demon? In this article, I will address these queries.

One of the darkest nights in the Demon Slayer anime saw the family of the protagonist, Tanjiro Kamado, attacked by a demon. Tanjiro, the sole breadwinner after his father’s departure, was away selling charcoal. The demon responsible was Muzan Kibutsuji, who killed Tanjiro’s mother, Kie Kamado, and his siblings. When Tanjiro returned home the next day, he discovered everyone dead, except for his sister Nezuko. However, Nezuko was no longer the same; she had been turned into a demon. Initially attacking Tanjiro, she was stopped by Giyu Tomioka, who was about to kill her. Tanjiro intervened, determined to find a cure for Nezuko’s demonic curse.

Tanjiro embarked on a journey to restore Nezuko to human form. As demons disintegrate when exposed to sunlight, Tanjiro kept Nezuko in a wooden box, shielding her from the sun during his travels. Although the Demon Slayer Corps considered Nezuko a threat and wanted to kill her, Tanjiro’s love for his sister prevented it. Despite being a demon, Nezuko never harmed humans. She was a unique demon, regaining strength through sleep rather than consuming human blood.

Nezuko’s demon form was remarkable. She assisted Tanjiro in defeating demons, a surprising alliance. In her demonic mode, a single horn protruded from her head, and she gained incredible strength and speed. Nezuko’s kicks could instantly kill demons. Infused with Muzan’s blood during the attack, she could heal wounds instantly and regenerate lost limbs. Nezuko could even control her body size according to the situation.

Her most potent technique was her Blood Demon Art, known as Pyrokinesis. When injured, Nezuko’s blood produced special pink flames harmful to demons and beneficial to humans. During the Entertainment District Arc, Nezuko used her Blood Demon Art to neutralize poison, saving Tengen Uzui.

While demons are generally harmful to humans, Nezuko was a special case. Her only weakness was sunlight, but by the end of season 3, she overcame this vulnerability.
