Information about Tengen Uzui

The current Sound Hashira and the former Shinobi. He has three wives who work as scouts, but he is forced out of his post after losing a hand and an eye in a battle against the High Moons. He reappears in the final battle against Muzan, standing guard to protect Kiriya alongside Kyōjurō’s father.

History of Tengen Uzui

Tengen was one of nine children in a surviving line of shinobi. However, seven of his siblings died before he was 15, leaving only him and the second youngest sibling. The harsh and abusive training their father put them through caused his brother to become like their father: callous to life and using people as tools.

Disgusted by this worldview, Tengen chose to rebel with the values ​​instilled in him during his youth. He taught his wives to value their own lives first, then innocent civilians, and finally his own, even though it completely defied their training.

Some time later, they were taken over by Kagaya Ubuyashiki and Tengen joined the Demon Slayers. He became a Pillar some time before Sanemi Shinazugawa, as he was present at Sanemi’s first Pillar meeting and expressed his displeasure when the new Pillar confronted their leader.

Personality of Tengen Uzui

Tengen is a very eccentric person, who always wants to perform “flamboyant” actions. Although he has shown a carefree and forceful attitude towards some people – he gets excited by imagining how “flaming” it would be if Tanjiro Kamado’s blood vessels burst, and attempts to drag Aoi Kanzaki by force with him to the entertainment district so she can unwillingly help him on a dangerous mission – he also has a caring side that mostly only manifests to his most precious loved ones, including his three wives, Makio, Suma and Hinatsuru. He also shows a kinder side towards Tanjiro after their mission and begins to accept him more and more as the series progresses.

Despite being a shinobi who traditionally valued mission accomplishment above all else, Tengen rejected this ideology after seeing its effects on his family. Today, he feels that his subordinates, whether they be his wives or the demon slayers under his command, should value their lives and the lives of the innocent more than their mission or his. .

Abilities and Powers of Tengen Uzui

As the Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps, Tengen is a very powerful swordsman. He has displayed many abilities that allow him to easily defeat Demons in a fight and even allow him to fight on par against the Top Rank of the Twelve Kizuki. During his fight against Gyutaro, he was able to fight on par with Upper Rank 6 while protecting others at the same time, a feat made all the more impressive considering he also had to hold Daki back for a point in the fight.


Tengen Uzui’s Natural Abilities

Master Swordsman: A mainstay of the Demon Slayer Corps, Tengen is one of the most powerful and skilled swordsmen in the entire organization.

Echolocation: Tengen has been shown to possess superhuman hearing similar to Zenitsu’s, but far more advanced than his own, as it allowed him to easily hear noises in the depths of the earth. This allowed him to immediately understand that there were underground tunnels and caves directly below him by analyzing the sounds reflected and resonated by the taverns and to precisely locate and even guess the number of people inside by listening. the sound bounces off their physical body.

Immense Pain Resistance: Due to his upbringing as a ninja and his own father’s increased attempts to revive their clan by forcing Tengen and his siblings to train even harder and more painfully than necessary, Tengen has developed a powerful resistance to pain, as seen when he had little or no reaction to being caught in a hail of Kunai knives and being stabbed by them without even flinching or showing any form of discomfort or pain, continuing his fight against Gyutaro with full concentration. Later, it was also found that Tengen had suffered other severe injuries/pain during this battle and managed to acclimate/ignore the pain from those injuries as well.

Immense Strength: Tengen possesses great physical strength, as shown in his fight against Gyutaro and Daki. An example of this is his ability to wield his blades with great mastery while only holding them at the tips and with only two fingers, as well as his ability to fight Gyutaro with one hand after his left hand was severed[11 ]. In an arm wrestling match between Hashira, Tengen is ranked second, with only Gyomei passing him. He also managed to knock out Inosuke and Zenitsu with a single blow each, albeit in a comical way.

Enhanced Speed: Tengen possesses great speed, as claimed by Inosuke Hashibira. He was also able to cut off Daki’s head before she even realized what happened.

Poison Resistance: As a shinobi, Tengen demonstrated great poison resistance to the point of being able to continue fighting under the effects of Gyutaro’s poison which should have killed him instantly.

The art of the sword

A Unique Weapon: Befitting Tengen’s flamboyant personality, he wields an equally flamboyant set of weapons. His main weapons are two larger than normal Nichirin blades, which each have a notch at the end of their blade and are held together by a metal chain. His swords are said to have great explosive power, and it is claimed that, until Tengen’s fight with Upper Rank 6, no one had ever survived a blow from these weapons. He also carries bombs with him and uses his sonic abilities to ensure there is no collateral damage on humans when he throws them out of his line of sight. He is one of five Hashira to possess a unique weapon, the others being Shinobu Kocho, Mitsuri Kanroji, Obanai Iguro, and Gyomei Himejima.

Sound Breathing: A style of breathing unique to Tengen. Sound breathing is derived from thunder breathing. Tengen has developed a unique combat formula called “Score”, which involves reading his opponents’ moves and deconstructing them into sound. He can then analyze the rhythm of their movements, allowing him to take advantage of their openings to much greater effect. At the same time, he uses small but powerful anti-demon bombs made with special powder, which have been shown to be able to defeat even a high-ranking demon briefly.

First Form: Roar: Tengen raises his twin swords above his head and thrusts them with great force, creating an explosion with his bombs, causing a loud noise resembling thunder.

Fourth Form: Resounding and Constant Slashes: Tengen swings his swords out of the way and spins them rapidly as he drops his bombs, making this technique a combination attack and defense.

Fifth Form: String Performance: Tengen holds one of his swords with a reverse grip and spins the other using the string that connects them. He couples this by also dropping plenty of bombs to detonate. This technique was used to defeat a demon from the Upper Moon.
