Tanjiro is stronger in the current season than when the show began. And he continues to gain experience and skill with each episode.

Muzan can transform anyone who assimilates his blood into a demon. He can also take control of the demons he creates, with a few exceptions.
Muzan cannot control Nezuko Kamado.
Muzan is a cold individual, driven by a singular goal. He wishes to become truly immortal and detests his weakness to sunlight.
Muzan has taken on a few different forms. However, his most popular appearance is when he has short curly hair and wears a suit. He is often compared to Michael Jackson in this form.
Muzan has taken the appearance of a woman and a child. This is because he can take control of a demon he has created by injecting his consciousness into them.
Muzan can also absorb and assimilate animate and inanimate objects. He plans to absorb Tanjiro’s sister, Nezuko, and assimilate her immunity to sunlight.

Zenitsu Agatsuma initially comes off as a cowardly and annoying character.
He detests conflict and often urges his allies to flee when danger is near. In addition, he frequently complains about the short life span of Demon Slayers.
Zenitsu’s true strength reveals itself when he is unconscious. He is a fierce and powerful warrior who can take on the mightiest foes when calm.
He needed to be unconscious to access his skills.
Zenitsu becomes more serious as the series progresses. He is much stronger when he consciously controls his abilities.
Zenitsu is also flirty. He seems to have a crush on Nezuko Kamado and will rush to her side if she is in danger without a second thought.

Inosuke is the most animated character in Demon Slayer. He is an exceptionally skilled fighter who often wears a boar mask over his head.
Inosuke lives for combat. He truly believes in his strength and loves to fight so he can prove it.
Inosuke ends up in trouble often because he overestimates his abilities.
Inosuke’s pride is a result of his impressive instincts. Unlike his comrades, Inosuke learned Total Concentration Breathing by himself.
Inosuke uses his unique breathing technique to conquer tough foes. While he can be loud, he is also very reliable.
Birthday: December 28th
Age: 14 (Anime)
Nezuko Kamado was the only one to survive the demon attack on her family. Unfortunately, she became a demon, and her brother made it his mission to turn her back.
Nezuko is not as violent around humans as other demons. This is because she does not need blood to replenish her power.
Nezuko requires a lot of sleep between battles to regain her strength. She grows stronger with each confrontation, and her growth rate is abnormal.
Nezuko is protective of anyone she sees as family. She gets along well with humans but doesn’t talk much.
Nezuko is an incredibly powerful demon. And Tanjiro will stop at nothing to find a cure. They make an interesting duo.

Kyojuro Rengoku is one of the most beloved characters on the show. He was the fire Hashira but died during the Mugen train Arc.
Rengoku was a jovial and loud Hashira. He stood at the pinnacle of the Demon Slayer Corp along with his peers.
Rengoku was known for his exceptional fighting skills and strong fire breathing techniques. He was strong even when compared to the other Hashiras.
Rengoku stayed true to his belief even in death. He believed that those born strong had a duty to protect the weak.
Rengoku died during the Mugen train arc. This happened following a fierce battle with Akaza, one of the upper three ranked demons.
Rengoku is no longer on the show, but his spirit continues as the plot unfolds.

Tomioka is the first Demon Slayer we see in the anime. He is an important supporting character and serves as Tanjiro’s introduction to the world of Demon Slayers.
Tomioka is the water Hashira, and it is incredibly skilled. He shows no mercy when handling demons, except Nezuko.
This is because Tanjiro’s determination to keep his transformed sister alive impressed Tomioka.
Tomioka usually walks around with an emotionless stare. He only breaks this facade when he receives shocking news about someone he cherishes.
Tomioka is willing to put his life on the line for the people he cares about. He even offered to commit seppuku when vouching for Tanjiro and Nezuko.
Birthday: February 24th
Age: 18 (Anime)
Shinobu is the insect Hashira. She is an interesting supporting character on the show and has a heavy back story.
Shinobu truly hates demons. She lost her family and older sister to demons and is in a constant state of rage and hatred.
This isn’t obvious at first glance because Shinobu has a cheerful demeanor and is always smiling.
Her smile is like a mask. Nevertheless, she tries to carry on her older sister’s smile.
Shinobu can be kind-hearted. She took in Tanjiro and Nezuko at her butterfly mansion, despite her hatred for demons. She later sympathizes with the siblings after hearing their story.
Age: 23 (Anime)
Kagaya is the head of the Ubuyashiki clan. He is also the commander of the Demon Slayer Corps.
Kagaya’s clan is cursed for birthing the first demon. As a result, the men have very short life spans and usually die under 30.
Kagaya is a kind and fair leader. He can be gentle or firm, depending on the situation.
Kagaya has the ability to soothe his listeners. He can make even the most volatile of people calmly consider his words.
Kagaya’s curse is slowly spreading from his head and eroding his body. As a result, he is blind by his first appearance in the anime.
Age: 133 (Anime)
Akaza is an important supporting antagonist on the show. He is the upper third-ranked demon and a powerful foe.
Akaza made a big impact in the anime after killing Rengoku. He displayed exceptional skill during the battle and respected Rengoku.
He believes that the strong should devour the weak. He loves to battle strong opponents to test his strength against them.
Akaza detests the weak. They make his skin crawl. A good example is his battle with Rengoku. He had nothing but disdain for Tanjiro and his friends.
Akaza goes through some major character development as the plot progresses. We look forward to the next time he clashes with Tanjiro.
Birthday: May 19th
Age: 16 (Anime)
Tsuyuri is Tanjiro’s first training partner after joining the Demon Slayer Corps. She is a powerful fighter with suppressed emotions.
Tsuyuri was rescued from an abusive situation and adopted by the Kanao sisters. However, she could not express emotions at first due to her background.
Kanae, her oldest sister, gave her a coin for making split-second decisions.
Tsuyuri’s first breakthrough happens after Kanae’s death. After that, she develops a fierce hatred for demons like Shinobu.
Tanjiro helps Tsuyuri come out of her shell. As the plot progresses, her emotions bubble to the surface, and she learns to act from the heart.
