The late Flower Hashira was a kind woman and the elder sister of Shinobu Kocho. In terms of strength, she was most likely as strong as the Fire Hashira Rengoku. 

This is supported by the fact that Kanae was able to hold off the Upper Rank 2 Doma until sunrise. Through the manga, we have seen a total of four of the Flower Breathing forms and its final form. 

This was showcased through Kanao, who was taught the Flower Breath. Kanao then used the Final Form: Equinoctial Vermilion Eye to defeat Doma and avenge Kanae.


  • 14. Shinobu Kocho –

Shinobu is the Insect Hashira that specializes in poison. Her dependence on poison arises to make up for her lack of physical strength. 

As a member of the Demon Slayer Corps, she has played a vital role in healing all Demons Slayers. Further, she also played a huge role in the poisoning and ultimate defeat of Muzan.

Despite her lack of physical strength, she has displayed complete expertise in the four forms of Insect Breathing. She is in no way weak as she contributed to the defeat of the demons in the Spider Demon Arc.

As a teacher, he has produced extremely powerful swordsmen. His greatest students include Giyu, the most powerful water Hashira, and Sabito, a swordsman who had great potential. 

Furthermore, he trained Tanjiro to develop battle skills and prepare for the Demon Slayer Exam in a short amount of time. To add to this, he also taught Nezuko how to overcome her bloodlust.

This Love Hashira is well known for her unique muscle composition. She is one of the most reliable Demons Slayers and also the kindest. 

Her main contributions to the series began in the Swordsmith Village Arc. Here she contributed to the defeat of the Upper Rank 4 and gained her Demon Slayer Mark while doing so. 

In the Hashira Training Arc, she was in charge of flexibility training. Further, she was the only Hashira able to physically rip off one of Muzan’s tentacles with her bare hands.

Rengoku was the enthusiastic Flame Hashira. In the Mugen Train Arc, he fought against Akaza, who acknowledged his strength and also pressed him. 

It was at this point that he surpassed all other Hashira. This was because he was closest to gaining his Demon Slayer Mark and access to the transparent world

Other than managing to protect all others from Akaza he also managed to hold him off until sunrise. Thus if he had survived, you would have been the first to gain the Demon Slayer Mark. 

Furthermore, with his Breath of Flame and skill, the final fight against Muzan would’ve been easier and different in many aspects.


  • 8. Giyu Tomioka –

Giyu is the Water Hashira and the demon slayer that recruited Tanjiro into the Demon Slayer Corps. His major fights include those against the Spider Demon, Lower Rank 5, and Upper Rank 3 demons.

In his fight against Akaza, he was praised to be the strongest Water Hashira in 50 years. Furthermore, he has completely mastered all forms of the Water Breathing style and has even created the 11th form.


  • 7. Iguro Obanai –

Iguro is the Serpent Hashira that played a huge role in the final moments of Muzan. His preference for the Serpent Breathing probably stems from the rage of his traumatizing childhood with the serpent demon.

In the final arc, despite his injuries and loss of eyesight, he managed to inflict severe damage to Muzan. Furthermore, he was the most resilient Hashira as he managed his attacks without passing out. 

Thus he contributed the most in the final battle that led to the ultimate defeat of Muzan.

Michikatsu Tsugikuni is the twin brother of Yoriichi, the founder of the breathing styles. Being the favored child of a rich family, he received the best of education and swordsman training.

However, after Yoriichi began using the Breath of Sun and establish the semi-Hashira training, he too joined the cause. Here he learned the Breath of Moon, which is the closest reflection to the Sun Breathing technique. 

However, no matter how powerful of a Demon Slayer he was, he remained inferior to his brother. Thus giving into jealousy, he decided to become a demon which brought great harm to the Demons Slayer Corps.

As the Upper Rank 1Kokushibo, became one of the strongest demons. This was especially because he possessed demon attributes and Hashira-level swordsman skills. 


  • 5. Muichiro Tokito –

Gyomei is the strongest Hashira who uses Stone Breathing. The Stone Hashira is a pious being who is blind and thus relies on senses similar to that of a transparent world. 

In the series, he is one of the most trusted by Kagaya and thus played a vital part in trapping and holding down the Muzan. This granted Tamayo enough time to administer the drugs required to bring Muzan down. 


  • 2. Tanjiro Kamado –

Tanjiro Kamado is the sole inheritor of the Hinokami Kagura, a tweaked copy of the Breath of Sun. Although he began his journey as a demon slayer much later as compared to his peers, he has shown great growth and potential.

On multiple occasions, he has rushed to the aid of all those in trouble, willing to put his life on the line to protect and save. He is thus the most compassionate demon slayer as he extends his compassion to humans and demons.
