Demon Slayer Characters: Muzan Kibutsuji
Muzan Kibutsuji is one of the middlemost demon slayer characters to which the Kimetsu No Yaiba story has been plotted around.
The character Muzan Kibutsuji is one of the main demon antagonists of Kimetsu No Yaiba: Demon Slayer.
Muzan Kibutsuji is the first demon ever existed in the history of Demon Slayer with a lifespan of over 1000 years and a begetter of the demons under “Twelve Demon Moons.”
He is the one in charge of killing Tanjiro Kamado’s Family, and the one transformed Nezuko into the demon through splashing his blood on Nezuko.
His grievous assault on Kamado’s family was the result of his pledge that he undertook when he suffered a death-kissing defeat from one of the ancestors of Kamado Family Yoriichi Tsugikuni.
Yoriichi Tsugikuni was a breath of the sun user, which is a swordsman technique to take on even some of the strongest demons among the Demon Slayer Characters.
Since Muzan escaped his death, he was more careful about encountering the breath of the sun users as it may again put his life in danger.
He developed a technique to identify potential “Breath of the Sun” users. The warriors of Breath of the Sun” usually put the Hanafuda earrings in their ears.
Somehow he managed to notice the Hanafuda Earrings worn by one of the Kamado’s family members. That was the actual reason for massacre performed on innocent members of the family.
In his twenties, he looks more or less like a man. With his pale skin on the course, curly black hair complements his vibrant personality.
He has amygdaliform plum-red eyes with vertical pupils.
His razor-edged blue hue nails not only does compliments to the beauty of his hands but can also be used to do an offensive trick against his opponent.
As being the progenitor of all the demons, he has the caliber to manipulate his appearance at his will.
The trick to manipulating his physique often carried out when he has to hide from demon slayers and when he is in a complicated affair.
An instance where Kibutsuji Muzan demonstrated his ability to manipulate his appearance is when it was time to meet “Lower Moons.”
He disguised as a woman before being visibly present in front of lower moon demons.
He wore a black light cotton kimono, a Japanese attire usually worn in summer.
With that attire in operation for him, not even a single demon of Lower Moons able to identify Muzan.
Another instance where he showcased his talent of efficiently altering his physical appearance is when he turns himself into an 11-year-old boy with pale white skin along with black hair.
When we talk about Muzan Kibutsuji’s character, we can imagine a merciless demon with exceptional attributes to think.
Not even a single human whom he met has any value in front of him; that’s primarily because he is almost immortal against any human.
Even he pays no value to his lower-ranked breeds concerning to the fact that even a faint mistake by any of the demon leads them to be slain by Muzan.
He is more into self-obsession of being the powerful demon and thinks of himself as a perfect demon.
With no real challenges posed to Muzan in his lifespan of 1000 years except that encounter to Kamado family member, the ego into him has heightened to an extent level.
What Muzan Thinks of His Personality
With that said, Muzan into a state of thinking where he thinks himself immortal and rarely takes any threat seriously.
He has zero-tolerance schemes for any of his subordinates and to those whom he thinks weak or invaluable.
He punishes the wrongdoers brutally, setting up an example for others to not repeat the mistake by any chance.
Though, he has a concern over his inability to counter sunlight.
Like all the demons except Nezuko, they have constraints that they can’t expose themselves to direct sunlight.
His only concern, which is perturbing him all through the day, is becoming immune to exposure to sunlight.
His strong self-driven personality towards finding a solution for his inability leads him to more narcissism acts.
In a wish to attain immunity against sunlight, he started the assault on innocent people and started converting them into demons.
His thinking was to convert as many people into a beast as possible, and someday one of his converted demons will find the solution to his problem.
His murderous approach gets to a great height when he brutally kills two drunk people for being rude to him. He also killed their female companion just to establish superiority over them.
Attribute to Blend in Human Society
He was adaptive and able to think rapidly in a complicated situation. Muzan Kibutsuji blended himself in the human population in a way that no one can suspect him as a demon. He has his own family to which his identity of being a beast is hidden.
A long journey in human society has helped him develop the skills to play different roles in a distinctive part of human society.
As being part of human age, he attained the potential to think like humans and also learnt to put intellectual tactics in different kinds of situations.
A short History of Muzan Turning into Demon
As a young man, when Muzan wasn’t a demon, he was diagnosed with a deadly disease, and supposed that he would die before the age of 20.
In pursuit of a cure to his disease, he met a doctor.
The doctor started his treatment, and in the quest of his cure, he wandered across the country and found “Blue Spider Lily.”
His doctor used “Blue Spider Lily” as a medicine to cure Muzan of a deadly disease. Though he got cured, the reaction of that medicine turned Muzan into a demon.
As soon as he turned into a demon, he found himself unable to get exposure to the sunlight as it was deadly to him.
Demon-turned Muzan killed the doctor in a fury and later started repenting as the “Blue Spider Lily” was working.
He then tried to quest for that “Blue Spider Lily” throughout the country in a hope to reverse the side effect but couldn’t hit the fish eye. Later he adapted to his new personality as being a demon.
Power and Strengths
His regenerative power is so agile and quick that even he can regenerate his head after a severe injury to his head and body.
Nichirin blade is one of the most lethal armor for demons, but Muzan has also overcome this weakness.
As the series progresses, his regenerative power was enhancing day by day, making him a true immortal.
He can detect and differentiate between demons and humans efficiently.
He adapted to bear the attack carried out by demon slayer with the Nichirin blade.
