Demon Slayer’s Rengoku & Uzui Had Different Weaknesses – But Both Hashira Are Heroes

The first few seasons of the hit anime Demon Slayer introduced viewers to the strength of two of the nine Hashira. The Flame Hashira, Rengoku Kyojuro, captured hearts during the Mugen Train film, and his fight with Upper-Moon Three, Akaza, became a memorable moment of the entire series. Season 2 introduced the Sound Hashira, Uzui Tengen, who amazed viewers with his flashy techniques. After witnessing Uzui’s abilities in Demon Slayer’s “Entertainment District” arc, Rengoku’s death leaves fans questioning whether he was stronger or weaker than his comrade. Uzui and Rengoku’s strengths fall within different categories, but they both live up to the title of Hashira.

Kyojuro Rengoku adored his mother, who sadly passed away from illness when he was young. Before she died, she reminded her son that because he was strong, it was his duty to protect the weak. Rengoku respected his mother highly and firmly stuck to the morals she instilled in him at an early age. These morals reflect in his fighting; during Demon Slayer’s “Mugen Train” arc, Rengoku promised he would not let a single passenger die at the hands of a demon. He stuck to this, which cost him his own life and ensured his fellow slayers and all the civilians survived the attack.
