Cosplaying as characters from the anime Demon Slayer has become increasingly popular as the show’s popularity has grown. If you've been asked to an anime convention, don’t forget to include a demon slayer sword in your cosplay if you want to achieve an authentic look.
What Sets Demon Slayer Swords Apart from the Rest?
Nichirin Swords, also known as Demon Slayer Swords, play a crucial role in the war against demons. Most Demon Slayers lack the extraordinary strength and talents required to contend with demons, so they need a special weapon in order to win the battle.
The training required to become a Demon Slayer is difficult in part because of the perilous nature of the job. The Final Selection is quite similar, placing candidates in a potentially fatal position with a very minimal chance of survival.
Demon Slayers use their Nichirin Swords or Demon Slayer Swords to bridge the distance between themselves and their enemies. Rarely can a human directly slay a demon without one of these one-of-a-kind swords.
One of the many things that make Demon Slayer Swords so unique in the Demon Slayer realm is how effective they are in the battle against demons.
Demon Slayer Swords and Their Hashiras
The world of Demon Slayer features several Nichirin Sword variations.
Aside from the fact that each Demon Slayer Sword has a unique handguard color for its wielder, the blade itself also changes hues based on the user. Those that employ these versions tend to be at the forefront of the corps because only those with sufficient talent can bring about this transformation.
Tanjiro Demon Slayer Sword
Contrary to expectations, Tanjiro Kamado wields a black Nichirin sword. Since Tanjiro had some sort of reddish hair shade, fans had hoped that they would see a bright red Nichirin sword on him.
The sudden blackening of the blade shocked everyone (which is a very rare color among demon slayers, by the way). The black blades are symbolic of the Sun Breathing school, as was revealed in subsequent manga chapters.
Dark colors like black are very dangerous to demons because they soak up so much sunlight. This is why most cosplayers go to such great lengths to acquire an authentic-looking replica of Tanjiro's Demon Slayer Sword.
Rengoku Demon Slayer Sword
The slain Kyojuro Rengoku, a pivotal supporting figure in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, was the owner of the reddish-orange Nichirin Sword. When it came to swordsmanship, Kyojuro was among the best of the best.
The words "Destroyer of Demons" are etched on the side of his standard-sized and shaped katana. His white-handled katana has a striking pattern of flaming red on both sides. A fan's collection of anime swords would be incomplete without the inclusion of the Kyojuro Rengoku Demon Slayer Sword.
Inosuke Demon Slayer Sword
Inosuke is an exceptionally gifted swordsman, having independently discovered Total Concentration Breathing and created his own Breathing Style, which he calls Beast Breathing.
Inosuke can easily hunt and kill demons by himself with his Nichirin Swords ( he is quite well known for being the only Demon Slayer to possess not one, but two Nichirin Swords).
Instead of a clean and smooth blade, the blades of his Demon Slayer Swords are chipped and scuffed along the edge of the blade. This allows the swords to rend and shred demonic flesh instead of causing a clean cut.
Mitsuri Demon Slayer Sword
Mitsuri Kanroji is a fierce and skillful fighter and a pivotal supporting character in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The majority of female Demon Slayer fans choose Mitsuri's particular Nichirin Sword over any other Nichirin Swords because it is thin, flexible, and also famously resembles a whip blade.
As a result of her extraordinary dexterity, Mitsuri is the only person who can wield her sword without accidentally slicing herself. If you can obtain a replica of Mitsuri's katana, you can reenact her legendary dexterity with a blade that she will sadly lose in the distant future (spoiler alert).
Sanemi Demon Slayer Sword
Sanemi, a Hashira in the Demon Slayer Corps, is renowned as a formidable and adept swordsman. In numerous instances, he has proven his superior skills and abilities in battle.
Sanemi, in his role as a Demon Slayer, always carries his Nichirin katana, a standard-sized and -shaped blade with a jagged pattern that resembles the jaw of a beast painted on it in a greenish hue. Sanemi's katana comes with a deep gray sheath decorated with silver scar-like markings.
Because this Nichirin Sword is so unique, cosplay enthusiasts who wish to stand out from the crowd of Inosuke fans are likely to look for an excellent replica of the Sanemi Demon Slayer Sword.
