Demon Slayer Season 2 Characters To Expect
He is the main protagonist of the series, a gentle young man with a lot of determination and who does not give up once he has a goal to achieve. He also has a highly developed sense of smell. He became a demon slayer after long training with Sakonji Urokodaki, the master of stream-style breathing, currently used by the protagonist. He also has control of an incomplete breathing style of “fire god’s breath”.
She is Tanjirō’s younger sister and the only survivor of her family with Tanjirō after Muzan Kibutsuji’s attack, although she became a demon. However, she retains her memories and feelings for her brother. Having become sensitive to sunlight, her brother transports her in an oak wood box during his travels. Despite being a demon, she has a sweet and kind character; but when it comes to defending her own, she does not hesitate to draw her claws. It is worth mentioning that she has the power of a demonic moon, and she has not fully activated her demonic power. Urokodaki suggested to Nezuko to see all humans as her family to protect them and fight other human-eating demons.
He is a demon slayer and traveling companion of Tanjirō and Zenitsu, who wears a boar mask. He lived most of his life in the forest where he fought with animals and demons. His personality is similar to that of an animal, he acts on impulse and is too proud, but as time goes by he will learn that to survive you do not always have to act defensive and that it is good to get help when you need it. He is a skilled swordsman who uses two swords to fight with a peculiar form obtained by breaking the edge of his sword to make his cut more painful.
He is a demon slayer and travel companion of Tanjirō and Inosuke. Zenitsu has a cowardly personality due to his low self-esteem, but still wishes to live up to the expectations of others, despite being constantly scared, crying, and running away. The sense of hearing is highly developed to the point of being able to hear and differentiate the breath or heartbeat of beasts, demons or humans. This character will be able to develop this sense to the point of being able to listen to thoughts. He says he wants to live a modest life where he can be of use to someone and has the idea of marrying some pretty girl. He becomes a completely different person when he falls asleep during a fight, because that is when he forgets his fears and his body acts on its own thanks to the arduous training of the ancient pillar and great master of thunder breathing. As an interesting fact, this character got the yellow / orange color of his hair after being struck by lightning on his head.
Giyu is the first demon slayer Tanjiro met. He initially tried to eliminate Nezuko, but chose to avoid it after seeing her brother’s tenacity. Before leaving, he told her to visit Sakonji Urokodaki. Later it was revealed that he is the pillar of water and this character will help Tanjiro on many occasions. Despite not being the strongest pillar, he can defeat lower moons with evident ease and this showed the eleventh water breathing posture.
He is the antagonist of the series and the one who transformed Nezuko into a demon and the one who ended the life of the Kamado family. He lives in human society posing as a human. A millennium old, he is the first demon and the ancestor of most other demons and is presumed to be so powerful that he controls the 12 demonic moons and if any demon betrays him by giving information about him, this demon will die instantly. His blood is what contaminates the human and turns him into a demon, this blood is injected through his nails that apparently work like needles giving immense power to a demon, but it must give a little amount of blood otherwise, this demon will die from too fast a mutation.
