Shoichi (正しょう一いち Shōichi?) is a young boy rescued by Tanjiro Kamado and Zenitsu Agatsuma when they approached him to help his older brother, Kiyoshi, escape from the House of Drums. He also has a younger sister, Teruko.


Shoichi is a young boy of around 8-10 years old, with black hair and light brown eyes. He wears a blue haori over a light green tunic.

Although his personality is not completely worked out, it can be assumed that he is a loyal brother since he decides to follow his big brother to save him after he is kidnapped by a demon. He has also shown a protective side during his interactions with his younger sister. Presumably Shoichi is braver than average, as he decides to follow the two Demon Slayers, Tanjiro and Zenitsu, to the House of Drums. Even when separated from others with Zenitsu, he shows more courage than the Thunder Breath user.


Although not much is known about his personal history, Shoichi comes from a family of three children, of which he is the youngest.

Shoichi is presumably the middle child.
Zenitsu mistakenly thinks that Shoichi is a powerful warrior after losing consciousness in the Drum House while being accosted by the Tongue Demon. When Zenitsu came to, the demon had been killed, which Zenitsu attributed to Shoichi. In reality, Zenitsu had defeated the demon in his sleep.
