Tanjiro isn’t just empathetic and kind to everyone he meets; he’s also incredibly clever. This is evident even before he becomes a member of the Demon Slayers.

Muzan is the ideal antagonist. He’s strong, dangerous, and will eliminate anyone who gets in his way. He has created most of the man-eating demons in Kimetsu No Yaiba, and he even states that he’s “a living being who’s infinitely close to perfection”.

However, Muzan can’t tolerate being called pale or dead. After his initial encounter with Tanjiro, Muzan is preparing to send his underlings after the Demon Slayer when he bumps into three drunk humans. Muzan is content to leave them alone, and he even apologizes, despite the group’s rudeness. Then, one of the drunks comments on Muzan’s pale skin and how he looks ready to fall over, dead. Suddenly, Muzan’s demeanor changes. His eyes flash in irritation and anger, and he kills the group without remorse or hesitation. His strong reaction is a result of his fear of death. He devotes his life to making himself immortal, and cannot stand the thought of dying or being limited in any way.

For one, she doesn’t require human blood to survive; instead, she restores her strength through sleeping. She also displays incredible power and adaptability in her fights.

Other demons, including Tamayo, Yashiro, and the Lower Moon 5, have commented on Nezuko’s unique aura and abilities. Tanjiro asks Mr. Urokodaki if her uniqueness could be a Blood Demon Art, butMr. Urokodaki doesn’t believe so.

The Kamadofamily works with fire, butTanjiro and Nezuko's connection to the element has grown throughout the first season. When the swordsmith, Haganezuka, delivers Tanjiro’s sword, he calls Tanjiro a “Child of Brightness” because of his red hair and red eyes. It’s considered lucky in families that work with fire. Later, when Tanjiro fights against the Lower Moon 5 demon, he has a flashback of his father, who shares Tanjiro’s eye color, scar, and hair color.

When Tanjiro remembers his father’s fire-based kagura dance, he realizes that his father taught him a powerful breathing technique. When Tanjiro uses this, he unleashes the Hinokami Kagura Dance, a powerful move that turns his water into fire. Similarly, Nezuko’s Demon Blood Art is fire-themed. Her Exploding Blood takes the form of pink flames when she uses it. Despite being sickly, Tanjuro Kamado was quite powerful. Not only was he capable of perfectly performing the dance despite his condition, capturing the movements of Yoriichi, he was able to erase his presence. He was also able to behead a bear in a single blow armed with a hatchet. He taught his son some of the most important techniques that he uses.

10 Hidden Details You Missed in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba (11)

When Nezuko is introduced to the Hashira, most of them are completely unwilling to accept her. They assume she is a bloodthirsty beast like other demons. In order to test their theory, Sanemi injures Nezuko, knowing that demons need to eat in order to regenerate. He then presents his blood to her, which he describes as being irresistible to demons, like silvervine to a cat.

Nezuko turns away without saying anything, which shows her willpower. However, fans later get to see the true potency of Sanemi's blood during his battle with Upper Moon 1, as his blood is powerful enough to make the demon feel drunk.

4 Yoriichi Tsugikuni Is Never Established As A Pillar

10 Hidden Details You Missed in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba (12)

Yoriichi is easily the most powerful demon slayer to ever live. He comes the closest to killing Muzan single-handedly, making the demon hide from him for the rest of his life.

Despite the fact that the Hashira did exist at that point in time, and that Yoriichi fought alongside them, he is never confirmed to have been one himself. If he was, he wasn't one for long, as the Hashira rejected him after his brother became a demon and he failed to kill Muzan.

Muzan is obsessed with finding the elusive blue spider lily, as it is an essential item that would allow him to walk in the sunlight. Despite creating a large number of demons and having his best subordinates constantly on the lookout for the plant, no one is ever able to locate it.

He understandably gives up the search once Nezuko gains immunity to the sun, making fans wonder if the plant really exists.

10 Hidden Details You Missed in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba (14)

Akaza is forced to retreat from his battle against Kyojuro Rengoku, as the sun is rising and would have killed him if he dared to stay. As Rengoku is dying from the encounter, Tanjiro is enraged by Akaza's desire to flee. He called him a coward for not staying to fight, which enrages Akaza.

Tanjiro's words reminded him of his past, when a rival dojo killed his father-in-law and wife by poisoning the well, all because they could not beat Akaza in a fair fight. After getting chewed out by Muzan on top of that, he swore to kill Tanjiro.

1 Shinobu Never Obtained Her Demon Slayer Mark

10 Hidden Details You Missed in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba (15)

Despite the fact that many of the other Hashira obtained their mark, thanks to Tanjiro's mark spreading to other powerful demon slayers, Shinobu never obtained hers. This is because very specific conditions need to be met: Demon Slayers must survive a lethal heartrate of 200bpm and have a body temperature of 102.2 degrees Farenheit.

Not only did Shinobu not meet these requirements, but she was the weakest Hashira, unable to slice off a demon's head. Even if she did obtain her mark, she never would have beaten Doma in regular combat.
