Demon Slayer is without doubt one of the most viewed anime of 2019. This is an amazing fact, considering the series’ recent release on manga. The series was brought to life by Ufotable’s animation. It aired for 24 episodes. The story of Tanjiro’s attempt to bring back Nezuko, has captured all attention. The Otaku sphere is captivated by the image of the most beloved older brother, with the cutest little sister.
This is a list of the most shocking revelations about Demon Slayer. We will not just discuss the anime but also the paper manga. Warning: This list will reveal some shocking details about the manga. Let’s not spoil the surprise! Here are the TOP 10 MOST Shocking Revelations of DEMON SLAYER!
10) NEZUKO REFUSES TO KILL TANJIRO
The very beginning is the best moment in the series. Things could have easily gone wrong after Giyuu explained the events that happened to Tanjiro’s sister, Nezuko. If Tanjiro was forced to kill his sister, there could have been many more cynical scenes.
We would have met a former good Samaritan who was now driven by revenge and nourished only by the desire to take the life of Muzan, the initiator of his nightmare. Instead, his emotional appeal was activated and Nezuko could see Tanjiro more as his brother than his food. She stood up for him against Giyuuu, and was instrumental in many of his most important fights.
9) MUZAN TURNS HUMANS INSIDE DEMONS
It was quite surprising to see Demon Slayer introduce Demon Slayer’s main antagonist to the protagonist early in the story, especially given how strict Muzan is towards those who hear about him. Tanjiro and Muzan meet in the middle night on the streets of a city overcrowded. However, Tanjiro’s keen senses of smell make it impossible for him to miss who it is.
Muzan is able to escape by one gesture, a simple claw strike to the neck of a person, instantly making him a demon. It is quite disconcerting to see Muzan do this so easily that half the country isn’t under his control.
8) MUZAN IS ONE OF THE MANY PERSONS THAT CAN CREATE DEMONS
One of the most terrifying scenes is shown when Muzan Kibutsuji first appears before the audience. Tanjiro spots Muzan Kibutsuji and creates a distraction by cutting the backs of innocent passers-by, turning them into demons.
Soon, we discover that Tamayo is capable of creating demons. The nurse teaches us the intricacies of healing a transformation to a demon. Tamayo transformed Yushiro, a young man, into a demon. He was grateful for his help. This transformation could be used to good effect one day.
7) TANJIRO BREATHES OF FIRE MASTERED BY TANJIRO
Before Giyuuu becomes the master of the previous water, Tanjiro was under the tutelage of Sakonji. These abilities are quite useful for Tanjiro, though he can sometimes break his sword while using them.
Tanjiro discovers new techniques to match his skills during his fight against the 11th moon Rui and demon. To defeat Rui, Tanjiro uses a new set of sword positions in his memory of his father’s Fire God Dance.
6) ZENITSU IS INCREDIBLY STRONG
Zenitsu is a unlucky man who asks Tanjiro for help because he doesn’t want to die fighting demons. We all wondered how Zenitsu survived despite knowing the outcome of the final selection.
5) ORIGIN OF FIRST UPPER MOON
The manga’s readers are still shocked. All of the first-level Demon Moons proved to be formidable foes for our main characters. These formidable enemies have led to some terrifying revelations.
Kokushibo is not only a Demon Slayer but also one the oldest crew members. His powers were based upon the Tsuki No Kokyu (Breath of the Moon), style. This style was derived from Yoriichi, kokushibo’s brother and the most powerful demon killer.
4) SHINOBU SACRIFICES HIS LIFE
From beginning to end, the current manga arc has had only shock episodes. One of the most memorable moments was Shinobu’s fight against Doma, the number 2 Superior Demonic Monkey Moon.
We find out that Doma was the one responsible for her sister’s murder. We expect her to defeat this opponent in her honor. While this could have been considered in some mangas, it won’t be in this one. Shinobu will now be subject to the demon Moon’s curse by giving up his life to give Kanao the chance to win this horrible fight.
3) DEMON KILLER MAK
It is a horrible job to be a Demon Slayer. It may seem like the two groups are in some way equivalent, but Muzan and his followers can access superhuman powers and are immortal. One thing did help to equalize the camps: this is known as the brand of the Scoundrels. It arrives in demon hunters once the heart rate has reached over 200 beats per hour and the body temperature has reached 39 degrees Celsius (102.0 F).
They can use this to gain speed and strength comparable to the most powerful demons. However, it is only possible for a short time.
2) SUZAN KILLS LOW MOONS
One of the most memorable and beloved moments of the series is the arc of Mount Natagumo. Tanjiro and his gang come across Riu, the 11th Demon Moon. Riu is a young boy who tries to establish a family in the forest and puts the demons under control. Muzan was furious when Giyuu finally brought Muzan down.
He organized a meeting with all the moons at lower levels. He insulted them and pointed out that they are constantly losing to demon killers. He finally gets fed up with their inability to do anything and kills all of them except one. While other series might have used these characters to help the scoundrels become more powerful, it is not the case here. Demon Slayer is a codebreaker and doesn’t give enemy “gifts” to heroes in pastures so they can train.

1) NEZUKO GAINS AND POWERS
Most series have Nezuko as a motivational figure. While she may have helped Tanjiro several times in battles to save him from being killed by the demonic moons, it is Tanjiro (or someone else) who usually takes the final blow. However, Tanjiro encounters one of the demonic Moons during the arc at Natagumo Mountain. Nezuko is captured during that battle.
Realizing that Tanjiro will die in the fight against Rui’s, Nezuko attains a new level and activates his first bloodthirsty power. He sets fire to all canvases that would have killed Tanjiro.
