Thus with season 2 coming out, the most anticipated appearance is that of Uzui Tengen. So in case you need a briefing on him, let’s get into the Power of Tengen Uzui (Sound Hashira) in Demon Slayer 2021.

Who is Tengen Uzui (Demon Slayer)? 

Tengen Uzui is the Sound Hashira who appeared in the Entertainment District Arc. This flamboyant man comes from a shinobi background which explains his immense battle skill and knowledge. 

He is one of the two surviving children of a family of 10 children. This is because his family believed in succession through survival of the fittest. Thus the Uzui family selected its successors by making the children kill for the position.

Since his family practices polygamy, he has three wives who are all trained ninjas. In the Entertainment District Arc, he battled the Upper Rank 6 siblings, following which he retired as the Sound Hashira. 

His reason for retirement was due to injury, which included the loss of an eye and an arm. However, even after retiring, he stood guard to protect the remaining Ubuyashiki family during the Infinity Castle Arc.

As the Sound Hashira, Tengen relies on sound-based attacks and thus requires two blades. His blades hold great explosive power that can kill any demon below the Upper Rank without much effort.

Thus his Sound Breathing and power are further enhanced by his use of bombs. The bombs he uses are special anti-demon bombs.

Considering his shinobi background, he has endured the harshest training since childhood. Thus he excels in strength, stealth, poison resistance, speed, and endurance. 

Further, he also has a sharp sense of hearing which allows him to use echolocation and predict his opponent’s attacks through sound. He also has a great amount of battle experience, due to which he can make quick decisions. 

This has helped him figure out the best way to use anti-demon bombs in collaboration with his dual swords.

There are a total of five forms of sound breathing, out of which we have only seen three so far. 

  • First Form: Roar –

This form is a loud-sounding attack the resembles thunder. It uses the user’s force of the two blades with simultaneous explosions of bombs to create great physical damage. 

  • Fourth Form: Constant Resounding Slashes –

This defensive form uses bombs as long-range shields and spinning dual blades for close-quarter deflection. 

  • Fifth Form: String Performance –

The fifth form uses different ranges of attacks. One blade is held in the reverse grip while the other is spun using the connected chain. When coupled with the release of bombs, it has great effectiveness and damage. 

As mentioned before, Tengen’s shinobi background grants him an upper hand against most demon slayers and demons. This is because he possesses the speed, experience, and skill that baffle even most demon slayers. 

Furthermore, his raw physical strength is second only to Gyomei Himejima.
