Throughout Tanjiro's quest to restore his sister to her human form and avenge his family, he meets a bunch of other Demon Slayers who become staples of the plot.

¹Age when he died.

Tanjiro Kamado

Demon Slayer's main character, Tanjiro's life got turned into a walking nightmare when a demon slaughtered his family and turned his sister, Nezuko, to the dark side. Driven by anger and love for his sibling, Tanjiro joins the Demon Slayer Corps to eradicate the demons and, hopefully, find a way to revert Nezuko back to a human.

While a warm and kind person, Tanjiro is more than willing to make tough decisions. He is under no illusion that demons should be sparred or that killing would make him no better than his enemies; Tanjiro gets the job done.

Nezuko Kamado

Nezuko Kamado is one of the youngest characters in Demon Slayer as she is only 12 years old at the start of the story when she is turned into a demon. A few episodes later, Nezuko is 14 years old, however, physically, she has not aged since that faithful and tragic day, and that's something that will not change unless Tanjiro finds a cure.

Nezuko's transition into demonhood naturally altered her personality, making her far more fearless and direct than she was as a human. However, she retains some of her previous traits, particularly her desire to protect Tanjiro.

Zenitsu Agatsuma

Despite being a bit older than Tanjiro, Zenitsu Agatsuma doesn't generally come across that way since his natural disposition is to flee. Although he doesn't always show it, Zenitsu is far from incapable with a weapon, a familiarity stemming from his training-fueled upbringing as Jigoro Kuwajima's pupil.

Zenitsu has fair skin and golden eyes. His hair is bright yellow (thanks to being struck by lightning) and shaped in basically a bowl cut.

Inosuke Hashibira

Inosuke Hashibira tends to jump into battle without much thought. Although he is very much capable of taking care of himself, Inosuke's habit of overestimating his own abilities tends to drop him in boiling water, particularly since he constantly wants to challenge anyone who could possibly match him in combat.

Inosuke was raised by boars as a child, something reflected by his selection of headwear. Inosuke's background means he often struggles with human traditions, emotions, and customs, although he slowly changes thanks to his affiliation with the Demon Slayer Corps.

Kanao Tsuyuri

Kanao has large, gentle-looking pink eyes and thin black hair worn in a ponytail. A rough upbringing thought Kanao to completely close herself off as a method of self-preservation. For the longest time, Kanao showed little to no emotion and refused to make any decisions for herself, opting to leave such matters to others or chance.

As with most heroic Demon Slayer characters, Kanao matures quite a bit as the series progresses, although only hints of that have been provided by the anime.

Genya Shinazugawa

Another character with a tragic backstory, Genya witnessed his siblings be murdered by his demonized mother. He also saw his only surviving brother, Sanemi, kill his mother. Although he cannot use Breathing Techniques, Genya is a strong fighter who has the talent for absorbing demon abilities.

Genya's hot-headed nature doesn't make him the easiest Demon Slayer to work with, at least during the early stages of the anime. However, Genya becomes more sociable as the series goes on.

Sanemi Shinazugawa

The Wind Hashira looks absolutely crazy and not someone to be messed around with. The psychotic nature of his gaze seems like it'd be enough to freeze any enemy in its tracks.

One can only wonder just how much damage this Hashira will be able to inflict with his attacks. Manga fans might be aware, but it's the potential of the anime and its visuals that have got fans excited to see Shinazugawa in action.

Giyu Tomioka

Not one to waste words, Giyu keeps things close to the chest and believes others should follow suit. As a child, Giyu was saved from a demon by his sister at the cost of her own life; frustratingly for the kid, Giyu's attempts to inform people of what happened only resulted in him being ostracized.

As a rather senior member of the Demon Slayer Corps, Giyu presents a strong and aloof figure, although he isn't quite as confident as he appears to be.

Shinobu Kocho

At first glance, Shinobu appears to be the friendliest and most likable member of the Demon Slayer Corps. She always has a smile on her face and seems up for a good joke. However, this is simply a coping mechanism to restrain her uncontrollable hatred for demons stemming from the death of her sister, Kanae Kocho.

Shinobu can be unbelievably vicious, both with a blade and words. This Demon Slayer character can reduce the strongest of warriors to insecure puddles of mush with a few choice sentences. She will also grin while doing it.

Tengen Uzui

In a nice change of pace, Tengen's back story doesn't have all that much to do with demons; that said, it is very much tragic. Born into a ninja clan and trained by his cruel father, Tengen was thought to only ever seek self-fulfillment, regardless of the cost to anyone else. Tricked by his parent into killing a few of his own siblings, Tengen eventually left the nest to try and carve out his own path.

Tengen's personality is a bit all over the place, courtesy of his harsh childhood and his attempts to move away from his father's teachings.

Mitsuri Kanroji

The Love Hashira is one of the more unique and interesting characters in the show. Her appearance might've been brief, but the impact this Demon Slayer will have is going to be quite spectacular.

Anime fans can't wait to see her powers in battle, which are bound to be quite a visual spectacle. After all, the very idea of Love Breathing — if one can even call it that — sounds like nothing ever seen before in the show.

Obanai Iguro

Obanai Iguro is the Serpent Hashira, which is already indicative of just how powerful he is. Not much is known about this character, with his design conveying that he's pretty mysterious.

His powers are yet to be revealed, but the idea of Serpent Breathing certainly sounds like a blast. One can only wait and see how his character evolves over time.

Muichiro Tokito

The Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito doesn't show much outward emotion and can come across as uncaring or disinterested. More often than not, Muichiro goes off on his own, often seeming to be stuck in his own head.

While this attitude might not make him the most approachable of characters, Muichiro's backstory sheds a light on the development of his personality. It all stems from a personal tragedy that left him lacking the memories and context to shape and harness his anger.

Gyomei Himejima

The Demon Slayer anime has yet to dive into Gyomei Himejima, the Stone Hashira, too deeply, as he has mostly served as a minor background player. While the character doesn't play a role in the show's next saga, the "Entertainment District arc," Gyomei's importance is likely to increase in the following season (or the one after) once the anime gets to the "Hashira Training Arc."

Gyomei is huge, quiet, strong, and cautious. He is dedicated to the Demon Slayer Corps, but that doesn't mean he fully trusts his companions.

Kyojuro Rengoku

Taking center stage in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train, Kyojuro Rengoku burst onto the scene like a ball of fire. Energetic, charming, and good-natured, Kyojuro has a sincerity to him that most other characters in the anime lack, outside of perhaps Tanjiro.

Kyojuro's optimism is not a facade to mask his inner turmoil or a way to lure people into a false sense of security. He is the type of person who looks for the positives even in the worst of situations.

Sabito

As his Final Selection training under Sakonji hit a wall, Tanjiro inadvertently found himself an aggressive new teacher in the form of Sabito. While initially dismissing Tanjiro as being too weak to make the most of Sakonji's training, Sabito eventually pushes the hopeful Demon Slayer beyond his limits.

Sabito's time in the anime concludes quite quickly, coming to an end after just a handful of early episodes. However, he plays a significant role in Tanjiro's development, perhaps even more so than Sakonji. His backstory also hits pretty hard, which is hardly a surprise for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Muzan Kibutsuji

The antagonist of Demon Slayer is one of the most fascinating characters in the entire show. Muzan might not have featured many times so far in the anime, but the cold-hearted manner in which he destroys some of his most powerful lieutenants is quite chilling to witness.

Muzan's power seems to be immense, and one can't really understand how Tanjiro and the rest of the Demon Slayers even stand a chance against this powerful being. However, there's still a lot of time for the characters to get stronger and put up a good fight if nothing else.

Rui

Tanjiro's most terrifying opponent in Demon Slayer's first season, Rui is unsettling in more ways than one. Although he generally keeps a civilized tone, the Lower Rank demon is incredibly dangerous and unforgiving, an attitude stemming from his transformation as a demon that led to him being rejected by his human parents. Ever since then, the villain has tried to create a new "loving" family to replace the one he lost.

Although not one of the highest ranking members of the Twelve Kizuki, Rui should not be underestimated. The villain backs his strong physique with abilities that allow him to enhance other demons or even change their appearances.

Akaza

The Upper-Rank Three Demon that was introduced in Demon Slayer: Mugen Train has made quite an impression. His brutal fight against Rengoku was a visual spectacle that ended with the Flame Hashira's premature demise.

Akaza is not someone to be trifled with, and he's bound to play a major role in the events to come. Unfortunately, only the manga fans are aware of how events will play out — anime fans will have to wait awhile for that.

Daki

Introduced as one of the main villains of Demon Slayer's Entertainment District Arc, Daki is vicious and cruel, a personality stemming from insecurity and a desire to get Muzan's approval. The Upper Rank Six demon has a tragic backstory as she was a courtesan who was burned alive, only to be "saved" by her brother, Gyutaro, on her deathbed. The siblings have always been joined at the hip, even if they tend to argue frequently.

RELATED: Demon Slayer: Things You Might Not Know About Daki

Not much is known about Daki, outside the fact that she was turned into a demon as a teenager and has been around for more than a hundred years. Although her exact height has not been revealed, Daki is quite tall, towering over the likes of Tanjiro and Nezuko. However, she is shorter than her brother or Muzan.

Gyutaro

Daki's sibling, Gyutaro is the Twelve Kizuki's true Upper Rank Six powerhouse. With a rather unique physique and a penchant for brutality, Gyutaro has an intimidating presence due to both his appearance and personality. Although he does care for his sister, Gyutaro shows little regard for nearly anyone else and especially likes to target people he believes are more fortunate than him.

Similar to Daki, Gyutaro's height and birthday have not been revealed by Demon Slayer. Also like his sister, Gyutaro is over a hundred years old. He is also considerably taller than Daki, so he is most likely around 5'10".

Doma

Demon Slayer concluded the stellar anime adaptation of the Entertainment District Arc by introducing Doma, the Twelve Kizuki's Upper Rank Two demon. A powerful and twisted figure, Doma's agreeable and charming exterior is little more than a mask that can came off at a moment's notice. Completely unfeeling, the Demon generally maintains a calm demeanor throughout most situations, and he regards humans to be pathetic lesser beings worthy of pity and the villain's idea of salvation (death, basically).

Anime-only fans have yet to experience the terror that is Doma, so they can look forward to a future filled with cults, charismatic psychopaths, and vicious fights.
