Demon Slayer is one of the adventurous shonens I have ever come across. The enthralling plot with a perfect blend of characters establishes a unique harmony between readers and the series itself. I have been a staunch follower of Demon Slayer right from the beginning of series, which persuaded me to be demon slayer bookworm at the early’s of my 18. One of the inspiring characters of Demon Slayer for me was Shinobu Kocho. She was an 18-year petite girl with a beautiful appearance.
What impressed me about her character is her being the positive standpoint lady. Despite losing her beloved elder sister Kanae in an assault launched by an Upper Moon Demon Doma, she always wanted to befriend the demons. Although she used to brood the death of her elder sister, she also wanted the humans and demons should be friends.
If you are a fan of Shinobu Kocho, I have compiled a list of top 10 secrets about Shinobu Kocho that you might not be aware of. Let’s get started.
Top 8 Secrets of Shinobu Kocho
Shinobu Kocho- A Medical Expert
She was a medical expert with an ability to concoct antidots to assist her beloved ones in an emergency of life. She demonstrated her mastery in pharmaceuticals when Zenitsu got severe injuries from the venom of spider demons.
It was Shinobu Kocho who cured Zenitsu of the venom by administering the antidote prepared by herself.
She even can bring some flowers like wisteria into play to concoct the poison for demons. It was seen through the demon slayer episodes of her experimenting with the plants to combine a deadly combination of poison to rot her foes into hell.
Shinobu Had Inferiority Complex
She was a frail built personality. Kocho was short in height, and so was petite. She always thought of having a good personality as others do in the Demon Slayer Corps Team. Her thinking was that a well-built body has dimensions of possibilities to defeat the enemies. She even mourned her body built when she was taking on with Doma in the last fight of her life.
While fighting with Doma, she thought if she could have a well-built body with height, the outcome would have been different.
With such a personal trait, it was astounding for us to see Shibonu as a knight. She always is ready to take part in fights with her teammates.
Unable to Behead Demons
Shinobu was one of the strongest blade wielders in the demon-slaying corps. Despite this prowess, she can’t behead demons as like others can do with a single wield. She was the only one in the team with the inability to slit the throat with her blade.
The subject is still unclear about why she can’t behead demons, but what we think her pygmy or petite build could be the potential reason for her inability to perform such an attack.
Instead of Beheading demons, she uses her blade to inject a deadly poison into her enemies, which ultimately turns her foes into a body.
She was the goddess of a calm personality that nothing could bother her when she is in her best mood. Her signature “Woo-hoo” word phrase has got fan-wide recognition all across the fan society.
She is friendly to a great extent that she even wants to befriend those who mercilessly assailed her elder sister Kamae. Whoo, but what do you call such a personality who is interested in doing a friendship deal with the race responsible for her sister’s loss? Not that cool, though.
Shinobu’s Sister Death Provoked Her to Be a Demon Slayer
Shinobu loved her sister more than anything else. No matter what, both were used to live together. One day the upper moon demon, Doma, killed her sister Kanae which ultimately became Shinobu’s most considerable provocation to be the demon slayer. She wanted to avenge her sister’s death because of other demon slayer characters.
She trained hard to give a lesson of the murderer of her sister but ultimately fell short of her goal.
Shinobu Kocho Death
In what it feels to be a horrific turn of events in the Demons Slayer Series is the death of Shinobu Kocho. Yes, you heard it right. Shinobu Kocho’s souls is resting in peace well above eternity. When she was taking the fight with Doma, an upper moon demon who was immune to Shinobu’s poison, she ultimately got killed. At the time of her death, she wasn’t able to breathe.
Her lungs were brutally injured due to an assault by Doma. She is no more, as she devoured, eaten, lost; but the reality is she is no more the part of Demon Slayer Adventure.
Shinobu Kocho’s Death Impact
The death of Shinobu Kocho left her fans in the lurch as many of her fans didn’t want to continue reading the Demon Slayer Series just because their beloved character is no longer part of the series.
