Every demon in the show had powers unique to them. While one demon could teleport, the other used logical strategies to win against the demons. Spells and tricks were great for confusing an enemy, but it’s almost entirely useless when going up against demons. Physical strength is important for defeating other demons.
In Demon Slayer, physical strength is the main focus. So it’s important to know what type of strengths each demon possesses. Here are some of the top five demons.
5. The Swamp Demon
The Swamp Demon was introduced to Demon Slayer as a low-ranking demon. It came in at number five in The Most Powerful Demons article. The same demon was responsible for the abduction and murder of young girls in a small village.
The way he fought Nezuko and Tanjiro was a testament to how skilled of a fighter he is. The fact that most ordinary demon slayers would have been killed when fighting him is no doubt.
4. The Hand Demon
He is as seen in the Demon Slayer Mugen Train movie, equally a formidable foe. He has a tendency to show incredible strength and pain endurance. He even boasts of killing several demon slayer trainees to Tanjiro during their fight. He also killed 13 of Sakonji Urodaki’s students.
Though The Hand Demon is just a minor antagonist, he has had one of the highest confirmed kill counts in Demon Slayer. This is rather impressive to say the least.
The only female antagonist we’ve got is Susamaru. She is incredibly strong, fast, and has incredible nimbleness. Watching her in action is mesmerizing.
At the start of the first season, she battled Nezuko at Nezuko’s temple. She was able to sever Nezuko’s leg with her Temari balls despite their teamwork against her. With this victory, Susamaru and Yahaba were able to put up a worthy fight for the three demons and the demon slayer.
After seeing episode 19 of Demon Slayer, which featured Rui, it is no surprise to see him at the top of this list. Muzan’s favorite Lower Rank 5 demon, Rui is a lot stronger thanks to more than his share of blood from Muzan.
Rui was responsible for killing and capturing 20 new demon slayer recruits. Thanks to a surplus of Muzan’s blood, Pelihair inherited the power to create demons. This ability let him create a spider family. With their creation, fans have been given one of the best fight scenes in Demon Slayer to date.
The villain and father of all demons, Muzan, is at the top of the list. With his powerful connection to the demonic creatures, this minion can always control them from anywhere long distance.
He installed a failsafe into each of the demons. If any of them reveals his identity, he will instantly kill them. Most if not all of Muzan’s demos are frightened of him. This is mainly because he does not hesitate to kill demons for his own enjoyment.
