Tamayo ( (たま) () Tamayo?) was a skilled doctor and close ally of Tanjiro Kamado. She was turned into a Demon by Muzan Kibutsuji.


Tamayo took the form a beautiful woman with long, dark brown hair, parted in the center and worn braided back into a large, low bun, which is held in place by a floral hair pin. She had large, gentle eyes that didn't possess pupils, only a haze of pale pink that fades to dark lavender the higher it goes, and notably red lips in contrast to her pale complexion.

Tamayo wore a dark purple kimono that was decorated by wavy pale purple tree branches and red flowers, with a cream-colored obi to secure it around her waist, as well as plain white socks and violet zori sandals.

Before, Tamayo wore her hair tied in a low ponytail and had slitted pupils.


Tamayo was a gentle, wise, and incredibly intelligent individual. Having devoted most of her life to researching the science behind Demons and Demon Transformation, she was one of the most knowledgeable people on the subject in the series. Despite the generally chaotic relationship between human kind and Demons, she showed a great deal of kindness towards humans and made it a part of her mission to the assist injured or sick with her expansive medical knowledge - Tanjiro Kamado being among them. Tamayo had a strong preference against violence and, instead of killing humans for their blood, chose to buy blood from consenting donors in order to survive.[1] She was adamant in teaching her assistant, Yushiro, against violence and often reprimanded him for his habit of hitting others.[2] She was one of the few Demons who, in her later Demon life, was able to regain and retain her human emotions up until her death at the hands of Muzan Kibutsuji.

Abilities and Powers

Medical Skills - Tamayo had displayed impressive skills in the fields of medicine and pharmaceuticals, possessing the skill to alter her own body so she can survive on only a small amount of human blood. She was also able to convert the terminally ill Yushiro into a Demon without Muzan's blood, and is later able to reverse the process when treating the man they encountered in the Asakusa Arc.[3] To further showcase her pharmaceutical skill, Tamayo was also able to assist Shinobu in saturating her body with deadly Wisteria Poison without it so much as causing her the slightest illness; a tactic she would use effectively against Upper Moon Two, Doma.

  • Anti-Blood Demon Coagulant: Tamayo created this medicine to prevent blood demon arts from progressing. Yushiro used this medicine to cure Zenitsu after his fight with Kaigaku.[4]

Demon Abilities

Though she tried to stay away from fighting, Tamayo is an extremely strong Demon.

Blood Demon Art ( (けっ) () (じゅつ) Kekkijutsu?) Most of her Blood Demon Arts were focused around illusions and tampering with the mind. However, her more offensive techniques were strong enough to momentarily stop Muzan, the strongest Demon.

Blood Bewitchment ( (わく) () Wakuchi?): Tamayo created a branch of blood techniques, that requires her to draw her own blood that then creates numerous effects/reactions from her intended targets using the bloods scent.

  • Aroma of Visual Fantasy ( () (かく) () (げん) (こう) Shikaku Mugen no Kō?)[5] - A hallucination that hinders the vision of the affected by creating beautiful flower patterns around them.
  • Mystical Fragrance of the White Day ( (はく) (じつ) () (こう) Hakujitsu no Makō?)[6] - Acts as a truth serum, causing brain function to decrease and will make the recipient confess their lies and not keep their secrets. It can be harmful to humans.

Flesh Seed ( (にく) (しゅ) () Niku no Shushi?) - Using her own flesh and blood, Tamayo creates multiple minuscule flesh seeds that surrounds her intended target. The seeds then burst and grow into gigantic flesh trees with numerous pointed/spiked branches that then pierces and restrains her target, the strength of this technique was powerful enough to stop Muzan, even if only momentarily.
