Nezuko Kamado

The Chosen Demon, Tanjiro's Demonic Sister
Nezuko Kamado


Nezuko Kamado is the deuteragonist of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and the younger sister of Tanjiro Kamado. Originally a human, she was transformed into a demon by Muzan Kibutsuji during an attack that killed the rest of her family.

Despite her demonic nature, Nezuko retains her human emotions and forms a unique bond with her brother Tanjiro, who becomes a Demon Slayer to find a cure for her condition. Unlike other demons, Nezuko refuses to consume human flesh or blood, instead recovering her strength through sleep.

Nezuko's exceptional abilities as a demon, including her resistance to sunlight and her unique Blood Demon Art, make her a formidable ally to the Demon Slayer Corps. She often assists her brother and other Demon Slayers in battles against powerful demons despite being unable to communicate verbally due to the bamboo muzzle she wears. Her journey alongside Tanjiro forms the story's emotional core as they strive to defeat Muzan and return Nezuko to her human form.

Personality and Appearance
