Breath of the Beast (獣の呼吸,Kedamono no kokyū?), also known as Beast Breathing in the English Dub, is a Breath Style personally created and self-taught by Inosuke Hashibira after living in the mountains and fighting for survival. It is said to be distantly derived from the Breath of Wind. The style enhances a user's sense of touch, while being able to utilize several different techniques.
First Fang: Pierce (壱ノ牙穿抜,Ichi no kiba: Ugachi nuki?) - Inosuke stabs the target's neck with both blades.
Second Fang: Rip and Tear (弐ノ牙切裂,Ni no kiba: Kirisaki?) - A double slash with his two blades in both diagonals (like X)
Third Fang: Devour (参ノ牙喰裂,San no kiba: Kuizaki?) - Simultaneous horizontal slashes towards the target's throat.
Fourth Fang: Slice “N” Dice (肆ノ牙切細裂,Shi no kiba: Kiri koma zaki?)- A multiple diagonal double slashes with both swords.
Fifth Fang: Crazy Cutting (伍ノ牙: 狂い裂き,Go no kiba: Kurui zaki?) - The 'Mad Cleave' is a technique which slices everything in all directions.
Sixth Fang: Palisade Bite (陸ノ牙乱杭咬み,Roku no kiba: Ran gui gami?): - A simultaneous decapitation with his two swords from both directions.
Seventh Fang: Spatial Awareness (漆ノ型空間識覚,Shichi no Kata: Kūkan Shikikaku?) - Inosuke can identify the position of enemies by feeling small disturbances in the air. This technique was so strong that Inosuke could sense all the demons spread out through a whole mountain.
Eighth Fang: Explosive Rush (捌ノ型爆裂猛進,Hachi no Kata: Bakuretsu Mōshin?) - Inosuke charges towards his opponent while dual wielding, then he swings his blades to decapitate them.
