Muzan originally had ailing health and was predicted to die before he reached the age of 20.[1] However, when he transformed into a Demon, he immediately gained incredible strength as well as an appetite for human flesh. During the the Infinity Castle Arc, his strength gave him the power to fight against five Hashira simultaneously, as well as Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke and Kanao.[2] Some of Muzan's well known abilities include his utilization to shapeshift into different forms, — such as a child, a woman, a married man — ability to track and locate the whereabouts of his subordinates, and immense speed to name a few.

Muzan's unique body constitution

Muzan's Demon anatomy.

  • Multiple Organs: Muzan has a unique anatomy, even compared to other Demons. Possessing a total of seven hearts and five brains, these extra organs are seemingly responsible for his abnormally powerful constitution. According to Gyomei Himejima, Muzan was also capable of rearranging the positions of his organs, preventing them from remaining in a fixed location.[3][4]
  • Regeneration Speed: Muzan possesses the fastest and most efficient regenerative power seen in the series. He was able to quickly regenerate his body after being caught in the huge explosion prepared by Kagaya Ubuyashiki and manages to circumvent the metal spikes added into the explosion.[5] He has also successfully overcome one of the Demons' prime weaknesses of being decapitated by a Nichirin Blade, as seen when he easily regrew his head after it was completely destroyed by Gyomei's flail.[6] During his battle against the three Hashira Obanai Iguro, Mitsuri Kanroji and Giyu Tomioka, Muzan even manages to immediately reattach his head the very moment their blades cut through his flesh.[7]
  • Body Deconstruction: Muzan has incredible control over his own body flesh, allowing him to deconstruct and reconstruct his body into/from multiple lumps of flesh. He uses this technique to avoid death at the hands of Yoriichi, by deconstructing his body into 1,800 pieces in a bid to escape.[8]
  • Extrasensory Perception: Muzan can feel the presences of both humans and Demons, including the latter's blood lust.[9]PLACE MARKER
  • Absorption: Muzan has displayed the ability to absorb, assimilate and dissolve organic and inorganic objects as seen when he began to absorb the flesh seed spike branches pierced into his skin, or when he began absorbing Tamayo and dissolving her drug. This is also seen in how he planned to eat and assimilate Nezuko to obtain her immunity to the sun. He has adapted to become immune to being beheaded by blades created with sunlight imbued metal. He's also surely capable of adapting to poisons even better than Upper Ranks, who became resistant to wisteria poison that kills normal Demons in seconds, and he was able to adapt himself to resist a drug specifically made to transform Demons back into humans.
    • Cellular Memories: Muzan was also shown to be able to "see" the memories of those he absorbed, as seen when he was able to "ask" Tamayo's cells that he had obtained upon absorbing her for information on what kind of drug she had injected into him. Upon being denied and insulted by Tamayo's surviving consciousness, he also showcased the ability to forcibly reveal the desired information by "watching" her memories, as seen when he was able to see her memories of her developing the drug together with Shinobu Kocho and Yushiro.
Muzan killing Wakuraba

Muzan's female appearance via shapeshifting.

  • Shapeshifting: Muzan can control his body's shape and even his presence, making him able to transform into someone completely different, without even those with extrasensory perception noticing, though he cannot fool Tanjiro Kamado's sense of scent. This shape shifting allows him to become a child, an adult, a woman, or even a pillar of flesh, eyes, or mouths to eat others, or a cocoon of flesh to dilate and adapt to poisons.

  • Combat Form: When fighting, Muzan can adopt a more monstrous form, with a dark-red mass covering his limbs, featuring sharp-toothed wide mouths, with his torso exposed. His hair becomes longer, messier and white. His speed, strength, reflexes, and power are greatly magnified in this form to the point that, despite having lost a great amount of stamina and endurance in fending off Tamayo's human transforming drug, he was still fully capable of easily outmaneuvering several low ranking Demon Slayers and consuming scores of them within minutes of emerging from his cocoon. The sharp toothed jaws/mouths located all over his body in this form not only serve as his main form of offense in battle, but also have the purpose of helping him recover faster since he can use the jaws to tear apart his opponents and eat their flesh, simultaneously killing his opponents and regaining his strength at the same time.[10]
      • Demon Whip - Muzan can stretch his arms and grow several sharp blades in his extended forearms and shape shift his hands into several bladed protrusions, which he could then swing like whips to easily tear his opponents to pieces. The sheer swinging speed of his attacks is extremely fast and the precision of his attacks is also extremely accurate. And, due to the sheer length of his arms, Muzan possesses such a massive attack range that not even three Hashira could get close to him.[11] These whip arms also have sharp-fanged mouths on them, which allows Muzan to inhale a large amount of air with them which he can than use to create an immense suction effect that forcibly attracts his opponents towards him and severely impedes their movements.
      • Spine Whips - Later, upon being further enraged, Muzan displays the new ability to grow-spine like protrusions from his back that extend into bladed, whip-like tentacles. With them, Muzan is able to drastically increase his attack range and number of attacks in tandem with his whip arms, allowing him to easily mow down hordes of Demon Slayers and corner four Hashira.
      • Leg Whips - Muzan later revealed that, due to his ability to freely morph and change his body, he can rapidly grow eight more spinal Whips from his thighs in order to perform incredibly fast sneak attacks. Thanks to his immense skill in shapeshifting, he can rapidly grow the whips and then dispel them faster than the human senses can perceive, as he manages to use them to critically injure four Hashira and Hashira-level Demon Slayers without them sensing or perceiving that Muzan's body had altered and morphed itself.
    • Infant Form: Upon being cornered by the Demon Slayers and pinned by Tanjiro until daybreak, Muzan, in a panic, shape-shifted into a gigantic mass of flesh, resembling that of a gigantic demonic infant, in an attempt to protect his main body from being burned by the sun so quickly. This form was shown to possess immense physical strength, as seen as Muzan was able to easily crawl through and push back an entire car that had been pushed by several of the Kakushi, and later was able to break Gyomei's chain despite him holding Muzan back with his full strength and being supported by several Kakushi.
  • Demon Blood Empowerment: As the first Demon and creator of the Demon race, Muzan's blood possesses powerful transformative qualities that, once ingested by a normal human, causes their bodies to immediately transform, giving them access to powerful regenerative abilities, enhanced strength, speed, reflexes and even gives them access to unique supernatural abilities called Blood Demon Arts. Muzan can also further empower a Demon by giving more of his blood, enhancing their preexisting abilities and giving them new ones altogether. However this ability is limited to how much blood the recipient can withstand and "adapt" to. If a human were to take in too much blood from Muzan, their body would mutate faster than they can withstand, causing them to self-destruct into one giant mass of flesh before disintegrating into ash. The same would also presumably happen to a Demon if they couldn't withstand the blood's effects, as implied by Muzan. Later it was revealed that Muzan has learned to weaponize this particular trait of his blood. By coating his claws and attacks in his blood, he could secretly and subtly inject an opponent during combat with his blood through the wounds he makes. The dosage would be too much to handle and instead act like a poison and destroy the human body's cells shortly after they enter. However, this process is much slower in comparison to his transformative blood method used to turn others into Demons, further adding to its subtlety.
    • Demon Blood Nullifying: As explained by Tamayo, as the creator and progenitor of the Demon race, Muzan is the only known Demon capable of inflicting life threatening wounds capable of completely destroying the cells of other Demons without the need of Nichirin Blades or sunlight, thereby making him the only Demon capable of completely nullifying a Demon's natural regenerative abilities and kill them.
    • Demon Blood Memory: In his final struggle for survival, Muzan is able to transfer the remainder of his blood along with his memories into a suitable body, turning his new host into a Demon and exerting his influence. He successfully did this with Tanjiro's on the verge of death, restoring his damaged body, and causing him to rampage against his comrades. Furthermore, this technique is compatible with the host's own abilities, making it so Tanjiro can not only use Demon abilities but also his own, as he gains immunity to sunlight and potentially the use of the Sun Breathing. This transfer, however, is not perfect as Tanjiro was reduced to a feral state, only attacking based on Muzan's desire to kill the Demon Slayers. This ability is also known to have been unknowingly used by Muzan whenever he created another demon or shared his blood with them, as seen when the Upper Ranks, Daki and Hantengu were able to catch glimpses of Muzan's memories of Yoriichi Tsugikuni during their battles against Tanjiro Kamado.
  • Telepathic Communication: Muzan has the ability to read the thoughts of Demons that he has shared his blood with when in close physical proximity to them, as seen when he read the minds of all the Lower Ranks as they all gathered before him.[12] Later it was displayed that he could also send telepathic messages and have full conversations with other Demons as well, as seen when he was communicating with Upper Rank 1, Kokushibo, to check how many Hashira he had defeated and to order him to keep the Hashira at bay until he finished recovering from Tamayo's poison. Muzan is also able to see what Demons see, as he could with Nakime. However this ability is limited strictly to what is in their perception, so if a Demon's senses are fooled, Muzan is unable to realize the difference.

  • Curse: Muzan possesses the ability to put a curse onto the Demon he creates by sharing his blood. If any Demon he created even utters or says his name out loud the curse activates and destroys them, regardless of their original intent. This was seen with Susamaru who had accidentally said his name despite having no malice or ill intent towards him and was still destroyed by the curse, implying that the curse is automatic.[13] However the curse can also be intentionally triggered by Muzan. This was seen when he killed Nakime, who was manipulated by Yushiro. Because of this, many Demons serve Muzan out of fear and respect, simply referring to him as "that Man" when necessary to speak of him. However, it has been proven that if Muzan is weakened or someone has sufficient willpower, Demons can break free from the curse which has been seen with Tamayo and Nezuko.
  • Demon Control: Muzan can control Demons to a certain extent, as seen when he was able to take control of Nakime's body in order to try to force an absorption of Yushiro's cells in order to stop his interference when he attempted to usurp control of the Infinity Castle. However, this ability requires extensive concentration as Muzan immediately lost control of her the moment he lost focus due to needing to defend himself while in the middle of battle. Other Demons can also wrestle control back from him. Muzan can also remotely detonate a Demon: by closing his fist, he can crush a Demon's head from a distance.
    • Possession: Later as seen in Tanjiro's consciousness as a demon, Muzan can actually implant a small part of his consciousness into a demon he creates using his blood, provided that he injected them with gigantic amounts of his blood during their creation. As seen where a silver of his mind was still actually present inside Tanjiro's mind despite having already been killed by sunlight, and later attempted to sway,control and possess Tanjiro into "inheriting" his will and stay as a demon. However a clear difference between his power to "control" a demon and to "possess" him is the fact that he could no longer forcibly take control of a demon and force them to do as he wills and instead he must convince them to do his bidding, giving his victims the chance to resist him and escape from his grasp.

Blood Demon Art ( (けっ) () (じゅつ) Kekkijutsu?):

  • Black Blood: Brambles (黒血 (こっけつ) () (きょく) Kokketsu: Kikyoku?): Muzan uses his own flesh and blood to create several spiked-barbed wires to entangle his target.[14]
  • Shockwave: Later, upon being forced into a corner by Tanjiro and Obanai and weakened by Tamayo's four stage drug, Muzan showcased another unique ability of his combat form, in which he morphed his torso and upper body into a gigantic beastly mouth. From this, he released a strong shockwave scream, capable of severely internally injuring anyone caught up in its range. When Tanjiro and Obanai were caught in its blast, even Kiriya and his sisters, who were connected to them through the crows in the area, received a brunt of the attack. This technique is capable of causing heaving convulsing, paralysis and respiratory impairment. It is mostly used as a defensive technique, however, meant to keep aggressors away. This technique requires a charge time before use, and thus cannot be used consecutively, although it is largely hinted that Tamayo's drugs further imperil his ability to use this attack. Its impact can be mitigated through the use of a Nichirin Blade as self-stabbing can dispel some of its effects.

  • Sunlight: Muzan is noted to be immune to being killed via decapitation, as seen when Gyomei destroyed his head and he still managed to regrow it. Thus the only other known way that he can be destroyed is by sunlight. This is further given credence by his attempts to locate and devour Nezuko in order to gain her immunity to sunlight.
  • Crimson Red Nichirin Blade: Demon Slayers who have awakened the Demon Slayer Mark may unlock the power to change the color of their Nichirin blade into a shining crimson red. This especially applies to Demon Slayers who use the Sun Breathing or the Hinokami Kagura. A hit from a Crimson Red Nichirin Blades can hamper demonic regeneration and even incinerate their cells, disabling or maybe even killing Demons with high regenerative abilities. Muzan is no exception to the fact, as seen in his battle against Yoriichi Tsugikuni.
  • Complex Poisons/Drugs: Muzan has also shown a weakness to infliction by incredibly complex poisons or drugs that are foreign to him. As seen during Tamayo's attempt to humanize him via drugs, he has to take time and concentrate hard to analyze a drug's composition by transforming into a cocoon of flesh to analyze and immunize himself to the drugs or poison. Later, upon his learning of the aging stage of Tamayo's drug, Muzan realizes that his body is also expending the majority of his strength as it fends off the extreme aging effect of the drug, leaving him little power to use in combat against the Hashira.



Blood Demon Art ( (けっ) () (じゅつ) Kekkijutsu?): Hantengu can split apart into several younger looking forms, each with their own personalities and powers created from various facets and emotions of Hantengu. Each is identified by their clothing and a kanji tattoo in their tongue labeling their core emotion.

Demon Form Description Attacks
Hantengu profile

Hantengu

Main form of Upper Moon 4 which is a diminutive version of the original body and also the body possessing Hantengu's "core." This body has incredible physical fortification and durability, that not even Genya's Sun Steel bullets or sword could penetrate his flesh, despite Genya using his demon enhanced strength to further strengthen his attacks.

N/A
Hantengu profile (Sekido)

Sekido

One of the first emotion clones shown by Hantengu, his main form of offense is his ability to conjure powerful lightning and thunder attacks using a Khakkhara ( (しゃく) (じょう) Shakujō?) staff created from his own cells.[15] The lightning attacks themselves are powerful enough to nearly kill fellow demons, as seen with Nezuko, and to completely paralyze demon slayers. However a weakness to this is that Sekido cannot electrocute something created from his own cells as seen when he could not channel his lightning through the severed leg of Urogi. When angered and enraged enough Sekido can forcibly absorb and assimilate his fellow emotion clones and form Zohakuten.

Flesh Staff:
When Sekido left his Staff impaled in Nezuko to continue shocking her with lightning, Sekido displayed the ability to grow a new Staff from the palm of his hand using his own flesh and bone, showing that Sekido can create more than one staff for battle.
Hantengu profile (Karaku)

Karaku

The second of the emotion clones created by Hantengu. This clone has the power to create a maple leaf like fan using his own cells. He can use it to create powerful gushes of wind capable of easily leveling an entire building and nearly crushing humans and demons respectively to death and leave behind maple leaf like craters. A weakness to this fan is that other people can make use of it once taken from Karaku.

Flesh Fan: When Karaku's arm was torn off and seperated from him by Nezuko and he was then blown away by his own technique,Karaku showed that he could easily regrow and create a new fan from his flesh similar to Sekido.
Aizetsu Profile

Aizetsu

The third emotion clone created by Hantengu. This clone possess the ability to fashion a long spear Yari from his cells, that can then extend and shrink according to Aizetsu's will. He incorporates this ability in close range combat by extending the reach of the spear during mid thrust and slash, allowing him to easily butcher his opponents from a long to mid range combat.

Flesh Spear: Like Sekido and Karaku,Aizetsu's spear is also likely created from his own flesh and bone and thus explaining its ability to grow and shrink at will.

Urogi
The fourth emotion clone created by Hantengu. It that takes the form of a gleeful harpy-like demon with wings and bird talons with power to blast sonic screams from his mouth as his main attack and uses his claws and talons as his secondary weapons. Urogi's claws were also stated to be sharp enough to cut right through diamond

Flesh Detachments:This clone is also capable of creating several miniature clones of himself from his severed body parts. The clone is also capable of firing sonic screams, however only possess less than a tenth of their original power allowing even the weakest demon slayer to easily shrug its attacks off.

Hantengu profile (Zohakuten)
Zohakuten

The most powerful emotion clone of Hantengu. It is formed by Sekido after forcibly absorbing all the other clones: Karaku, Aizetsu and Uragi. This clone can conjure and create a five headed wooden dragons to attack his opponents by beating on the five drums attached to his back to control the dragon and activate his powers/techniques. The wooden Dragon heads themselves are capable of breathing out the attacks and powers of the other emotion clones as seen when the heads breathed the lightning and thunder of Sekido, emit the Sonic Screams of Urogi from both his dragons heads and his main body, Create powerful wind attacks that leave behind gigantic maple leaf craters of Karaku and breath out spear like thrust attacks at its opponents of Aizetsu. Additionally as noted bt Tanjiro,Zouhakuten's version's of the emotion clones powers were much more powerful than theirs,making him all the more deadly. Also Zou Hakuten has also demonstrated the ability to use own unique Blood Demon Arts.

Countless Striking Trees ( () (けん) (ごう) (じゅ) Muken Gōju?)[17]: Zohakuten unleashes his dragon-like trees towards the enemy, making them rapidly grow bigger and multiply as they rush towards his opponent.
Crazed Cry of Thunder Death ( (きょう) (めい) (らい) (さつ) Kyōmei Rai satsu?)[18]:An attack utilized by Zohakuten's wooden dragons, which demonstrate the ability to combine the unique powers of Urogi and Sekido's powers to create an attack of thunder and sound.
Compressed Sound Waves ( (きょう) (あつ) (めい) () Kyōatsu Meiha?)[19]: Zohakuten emits wavelike-screams — similar to Urogi — which are powerful enough to destroy a human's body; For stronger individuals, the attack can temporarily stun the opponent as seen when he attacked the Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji.

Hantengu profile (Urami)
Urami
The final emotion body detachment created by Hantengu as a last line of defense, being essentially a larger more physically powerful version of his "core" with its primary purpose is being a living armor used to hide Hantengu's true body inside its heart. N/A


— Hantengu's Blood Demon Art —


Appearance

Sakonji's face has never been revealed since he is always seen wearing a red tengu mask that covers his face. He appears to be an elderly individual as noted by the countless number of students he's trained as well as his silver-colored hair. In his youth his hair was black and he fashioned it into a topknot.

He is always seen wearing a cloud patterned wikipedia:jinbei kimono with navy colored pants which are fastened at his shins by white wikipedia:kyahan guards. He also wears traditional black wikipedia:tabi socks, and sandals similar to Tanjiro, except his sandals have blue straps. On the occasions when Sakonji travels, he wears a white cloth that covers his head and wraps around his neck.

Personality

Upon meeting the Kamado siblings, he is cold and strict when speaking with them, specifically Tanjiro as seen when he slapped him after witnessing his indecisiveness to kill the Temple Demon. he actually has an extremely compassionate personality. Though he pushes his students hard, he also cares for them deeply, viewing them as family, and is one of the few Demon Slayer Corps characters to entrust that Nezuko would never eat a human. Similarly, he wholly trusts that Tanjiro will find a way to restore her humanity.
