Demons are always scary, powerful monsters across nearly every work of fiction.  Their unpredictable Blood Demon Arts, twisted worldviews, and grotesque aesthetics are enough to give even the most experienced slayers nightmares. Here are the five most powerful Demon Moons in Demon Slayer.

Gyokko: Upper Moon 5

Gyokko was #5 among Muzan’s elite Upper Moons squad, a bizarre and short demon with a mouth for eyes and an eyeball for a mouth. He had some pretty flashy abilities and always put a creative spin on all of his attacks. He seemed obsessed with arts and crafts, often working these talents into his combat.

Gyokko traveled between handmade decorative pots, summoned fish-like demons, and even used water to trap his opponents. He nearly got the best of Muichiro, the young Mist Hashira. Luckily, he dispatched him quickly and decisively after activating his Demon Slayer Mark.

Hantengu: Upper Moon 4

Hantengu is the Upper Rank 4 in the twelve Kizuki. At first glance, it might be difficult to understand why Hantengu was appointed to this position among the Upper Moons. He proved himself one of the most formidable opponents in the series.

Hantengu was a coward, but it fueled his power. His Blood Demon Art divided him into his primal emotions. When his weaknesses were attacked, his hatred would take over and attack his opponents.

Akaza: Upper Moon 3

Akaza was a martial arts master strong enough to win a duel to the death against Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira. He also claimed to have personally killed at least one other Hashira. Akaza was one of the most formidable opponents in the entire series.

Akaza also had one of the series’ most tragic backstories, which many anime-only fans may not know about him. Before Muzan even found him, he labeled him a demon solely because he was strong enough to kill hundreds of trained fighters with his bare hands.

Doma: Upper Moon 2

Doma was by far the most wicked demon in the twelve Kizuki. As the Upper Rank 2, no strategy was too extreme for him, and he would do anything to win. His jaw was blasted to oblivion by Akaza, and his body fell apart after a heavy dose of Wisteria poison, but nothing fazed him.

Doma was responsible for the deaths of a few people dear to the Corps, including Kanae Kocho and Inosuke’s mother. His death required teamwork and careful planning on the heroes’ part, because in a one-on-one fight, Doma is nigh-unbeatable, even for the Hashira.

Kokushibo: Upper Moon 1

Kokushibo was a demon slayer during the Sengoku Era. He became a demon and retained much of his swordsmanship skills. He combined his Breathing Techniques with Blood Demon Art, earning him the Upper Rank 1 position in the twelve Kizuki.

Kokushibo admitted that he became a demon because he wanted to outlive his expected lifespan since he activated his Flame Mark. Surprisingly, Kokushibo is also related to Muichiro, the Mist Hashira. Before he died, he had a child and Muichiro is one of his descendants.
