Sun Breathing is known as the strongest of the various breathing techniques within Demon Slayer, so let's explore the history of the original style. The swordsmen of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba utilize various breathing techniques to fight against the threat of demons.
Apart from all the Five Main Breathing Techniques, Moon Breathing is also branched out of Sun Breathing. Kokushibo, Upper-Rank One, is the only Known user of this technique. Despite being inferior to Sun Breathing, it is stronger than other Breathing Techniques.
Stone Breathing is considered to be the strongest Breathing Style in Demon Slayer. However, its techniques are not as impressive as the raw power behind it. The strongest Fifth Form of this Breathing Technique uses the flail and axe used in this fighting style to great effect.
Alternatively known as Dance of the Fire God, Breath of the Sun is the most powerful breath style in all of Demon Slayer history. It is currently a well-kept secret within the Kamado Family, the only known people who have managed to tame this notoriously difficult breathing style.
First Form: Dance
The simplest Sun Breathing technique on this list is a high-powered slash that can absolutely decimate opponents. Tanjiro unwittingly pulls off this move during his fight against Rui, marking the first instance of him using the Sun Breathing technique.
7 Shinobu Kocho, The Insect Hashira
That being said, one has to admit that she's arguably the weakest Hashira when it comes to pure strength. However, brawn is not the only way to determine strength in Demon Slayer.
Taught to him by Sakonji during his training in the mountains, it is one of the five main styles derived from Sun Breathing. Though Tanjiro succeeds in making use of Water Breathing throughout the early parts of his adventure, he eventually discovers that he's better suited for Sun Breathing instead.
Hinokami Kagura (ヒノカミ 神楽 かぐら , Hinokami Kagura?, lit. Dance of the Fire God) is a Breathing Style only known and taught by the Kamado Family, later revealed to be the first Breathing Style, Sun Breathing ( 日 ひ の 呼 こ 吸 きゅう , Hi no kokyū?).
1 Breath of the Sun
It's the oldest and most powerful breathing style that was used to develop the Flame, Water, Moon, Thunder, Stone, and Wind Breathing techniques that demon slayers use to this day. It mimics the intensity and versatility of the sun, lessening a demon's ability to regenerate.
Beast Breathing is a Breathing Style that mimics Beasts/wild animals, specifically their unpredictable, ferocious and wild nature, including movements, attacks and senses, and replicates it with the user's movements, techniques and abilities.
It is possible that his disease is at fault for that or, because he knew the Hinokami Kagura, there was no need for him to leave his family, but whatever it is, Tanjuro Kamado was not a demon slayer.
The 4-7-8 breathing technique, also known as “relaxing breath,” involves breathing in for 4 seconds, holding the breath for 7 seconds, and exhaling for 8 seconds. This breathing pattern aims to reduce anxiety or help people get to sleep. Some proponents claim that the method helps people get to sleep in 1 minute.
Even 400 years later, Muzan's fear of Yoriichi remained fully intact, as simply laying eyes on Tanjiro's hanafuda earrings caused him to recall their clash.
His sword's tsuba is hexagonal shaped with a bronze core and with an overlapping fuschia border. As a Hashira, Giyu's blade has the words Destroy Demons ( 惡 あっ 鬼 き 滅 めっ 殺 さつ , Akki Messatsu?) engraved on the side.
Gyumei Himejima is the tallest character in Demon Slayer so far at 7'2″ (218.4 cm), though he is yet to become an established character.
When Haganezuka sees Tanjiro's reddish hair, he becomes hopeful that he will get to see a bright red Nichirin sword. However, once Tanjiro unsheathes his weapon, the blade turns a dark black, to the concern of Urokodaki and the anger of Haganezuka.
A Demon Slayer's powers are not limited to their breathing, but they also rely on the nearly magical swords they use to decapitate demons. These special swords, named Nichirin Blades, are forged with a special ore that absorbs sunlight — the demons' biggest weakness.
Kuina and Kanata were born into the Ubuyashiki family. They are the youngest children in the family.
What's intriguing about the use of total concentration breathing in "Demon Slayer" is that in real life, it's not a far-fetched concept. Deep breathing exercises have been documented for reducing stress and increasing performance for soldiers and athletes (via Healthline).
Gyomei can defeat Akaza without even awakening his Demon Slayer mark. Akaza is too inferior in front of Gyomei.
13 Gyomei Himejima Is The Oldest Hashira (26)
Gyomei is not only the oldest—26 years old, to be exact—but the tallest out of the Hashira and the main cast. His appearance may be intimidating, but he's a lot gentler than people think. Gyomei keeps to himself most of the time, usually spending time with his prayer beads.
He has black spiky hair, and a prominent scar that runs across his forehead horizontally. He has been blind with no irises nor pupils.
