|“||Persistent. You’re all seriously persistent. And it bores me. It sickens me from the bottom of my heart. Whenever you open your mouth, you only remember that one dumb notion about avenging your parents, kids, or siblings. You’ve all survived. That should be enough for you. So your family got slaughtered. What’s the problem here? Think of yourself as lucky, and go back to the way you lived life before. Look at it this way. Being killed by me is the same as encountering a great calamity. You don’t need to think so hard about it. Rains, winds, volcano eruptions, earthquakes. Nobody tries to swear revenge on a natural disaster, no matter how many lives it takes. You can’t bring dead humans back to life. Why not just stop fussing over the issue all the time, and live quietly to earn your daily wages. Most humans live that life. Why can’t you all do that? There’s only one reason. The Demon Hunters are an assembly of deviants. And I’m tired of dealing with deviants. I’m the one who really wants to put an end to all this.||„|
|~ Muzan sophistically rationalizes his crimes to Tanjiro and Giyu.|

He created every monster in being and either programs or tasks them to devour humans, which makes their crimes fall into his shoulders adenine well. This caused many humans to die due to the countless demon creatures, creating a classify of war between demons and the monster hunters. In the zanzibar copal, he is voice Toshihiko Seki in the japanese dub ( who besides voiced Aaroniero Arruruerie ( while disguised as Kaien Shiba ), Rau Le Creuset, and Lord Embryo ) and Greg Chun in the English dub ( who besides voiced Garou, Henry Wu, Gabriel Miller, and N’Doul ). In the stage adaptation, he is portrayed by Yoshihide Sasaki .
Muzan Kibutsuji was born during the Heian Era of ancient Japan to a noble syndicate. ever since he was in his mother ‘s uterus, Muzan was extremely delicate and weak. The endanger of death constantly haunted him : his heart stopped more than a few times when he was a train fetus, he was declared a stillborn upon give birth due to having no pulse or breath. Had Muzan not wailed aloud, he could have been immolated at the funeral pyre. His frailty persisted into adulthood, preventing him from doing standard physical day by day activities. Muzan was diagnosed with a identical rare nameless illness and should have died at the long time of 20. His repair then traveled all around Japan and found the mystic Blue Spider Lily. Using it as function of his music apparently cured Muzan, but the doctor ‘s remedy was incomplete and Muzan still suffered casual relapses. Muzan, having lived in fear of death throughout his whole life, mistakenly believed his doctor was a failure and killed him out of rage.
however, as prison term went on, Muzan finally realized that he had become better physically and the sophisticate ‘s music was indeed working, but he was unable to walk in the sunlight anymore. Muzan besides realized that he had cravings for homo pulp as nutriment ; Muzan had now become a man-eating Demon. needle to say, his family was the first to fall victim to his ghastly appetite. Although the now-Demon Muzan promptly adapted to his new life and had no qualms about feeding on humans, the think that he had to avoid the sun wounded his self. He searched the entire country for the Spider Lily to overcome his weakness to the sun, but he was distillery unable to find it and the only person who knew anything about the Blue Spider Lily – namely the doctor – was dead. evening after becoming a herculean Demon, Muzan considered himself fallible and wanted to somehow get rid of his failing to the sun. With the search for Blue Spider Lily going nowhere, Muzan chose another option : create demons potent enough to withstand the sunday. That ‘s why he decided to reluctantly utilize his demon rake to sire as many Demons as he could. He hoped that one day there would be a monster that would be able to walk in sunlight without burning themselves into ashes and he could then devour them to gain their Daywalking abilities, allowing himself to be immune in sunlight. By giving a blue-ribbon few even more of his blood, he created a group of very powerful demons called the Twelve Kizuki who followed all his orders. once he was about killed by an incredibly brawny samurai warrior who possessed the “ Sun Breathing ” skill, being at a disadvantage and suffering a break down defeat. Since his meet with the Sun Breather, Muzan held a grudge against any Sun Breathers and killed any users in his direction.

Thus began the accursed fortune between Muzan and Kamado siblings fostered .
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
One prison term, Muzan traveled to the mountains where the current Kamado Family members lived and injected his blood into them in a wish to turn them into Demons. Muzan ‘s demonic lineage was besides much for most of the syndicate members ‘ bodies to tolerate, though, and they perished. Believing the Kamado family to be dead, Muzan left in disappointment. however, the eldest daughter, Nezuko, ended up receiving a considerable sum of his blood in her body and turned into a very powerful devil fledgling from the dose she received. only Tanjiro Kamado, the oldest child of the Kamado family, remained human, being away from his home during the time the tragedy struck. To revert Nezuko second into a human, Tanjiro began a long and parlous journey of taking on Demons as one of the demon hunters. finally, Tanjiro Kamado coincidentally picked up Muzan ‘s aroma and approached him on an urban street. At first, Muzan did n’t know who Tanjiro was until he saw a pair of earrings on Tanjiro ‘s ears – earrings worn by swordsmen who use Breath of Sun swordsmanship ; The lapp swordsmanship technique that once drove Muzan to brink of death. But since he is walking with his ( human step- ) daughter, he put up a kind facade and pretends to wonder who Tanjiro is. Tanjiro is brainsick at him and wants to kill him. In holy order to get away and distract Tanjiro, Muzan slices a random passerby ‘s neck and turns him into a demon. While that monster attacks his wife, Muzan gets away with his class. Before entering the passenger car, he tells his wife he has to do something and they should go ahead. He then walks through an alley where a drink guy bumps into him. The intoxicated starts mocking him and states, he does n’t like fancy-pants like him.

The brawny brother then angrily attacks him, only to be kicked into the air and be killed. The drunkard ‘s girlfriend holds his cadaver, crying. He then rhetorically asks her if he looks pale or weak, then replied to himself, stating he is infinitely close to perfection. He then stuck his feel into her brow. due to her body receiving thus much rake from him, that it could n’t handle the devil transformation, she melted aside and died in a ghastly manner. Muzan then summons his subordinates, Susamaru and Yahaba, ordering them to kill Tanjiro : the devil hunter who seems to have a joining to the dreaded fencer who used the deadly Breath of the Sun – the fencer who is the only human came airless to killing the demon godhead. After the demise of Kyogai and late Rui, the Lower Rank Five, Muzan was frustrated by the Lower Ranks constant failures. He called the Lower Rank One, Two, Three, Four and the stream Six to a merging, rebuking them and believing he no longer needed the Lower Ranks. As a leave, Muzan started to kill the Two, Three, Four and Six one by one, as they respectively were begging for Muzan ‘s blood, trying to flee, trying to deny Muzan ‘s opinion and trying to think about flattering his overlord. Enmu, the Lower Rank One, was the only Lower Rank left. however, unlike others, Enmu showed no fear over the brink of death and even coolly accepting it for saturated excitement. Enmu ‘s sadistic streak impress Muzan, and he sent Enmu on a mission. Muzan continued to send his Ranks to kill off the Demon Slayers. however one day, he felt that Nezuko was able to walk in the sun. He was so shudder to consume her and last reach perfection, that he immediately killed the family he was hiding at. He arrived at the Demon Slayer Estate and confronted their leader Kagaya. He predicted this however and sacrificed himself by placing bombs. Kagaya died and Muzan, heavily injured, was attacked by all of the Demon Slayers.

While the Demon Slayers fought and died and Muzan healed inside of a fleshy cocoon, all of his Ranks were killed, except the one controlling the Fortress. He burst out of the cocoon, in full healed and stronger than always. Dozens of Slayers surrounded him, but he simply killed each of them and alone grew stronger with each one he ate. finally, he confronted Tanjiro, who told him that he should no longer exist. Muzan was tired of them wanting to avenge their sleep together ones. In his eyes, they should see themselves as lucky and move on with their lives. Muzan told them that they should see his actions as a lifelike calamity, comparing his slaughtering to earthquakes or storms. Following the destruction of the Infinity Castle, Muzan about killed them. During the concluding struggle against them, Muzan was very shock that he aged 1,000 years old.

Beyond the Sanzu River
In this by-product bonus chapter that deals with the contiguous consequence of the final struggle against Muzan and Tanjiro ‘s reelect to humanness, it is revealed that Muzan ‘s soul is indeed condemned to Avici ; the worst and the most agonizing region of all hells. here Muzan is seen in his true, demonic form. Regarding his know with the Breath of the Sun, he plainly expressed, “ dirty ” .

|~ Yoriichi Tsugikuni’s thought of Muzan in their first – and last encounter|
The writer of Demon Slayer reveals more of Muzan ‘s past in an consultation that was not covered on the main narrative of the manga. Although possessing astute insight and cutting beware ascribable to being a member of the Ubuyashiki family, he used this family trait to make others suffer. not long after turning into a Demon and was even posing as a human, Muzan married five times, but his extremely offensive diatribes and afoul anneal drove each of them to commit suicide. As the drawing card of demons under the guise of a civilized and innocent world, Muzan is deep down a callous, pitiless, intimidating, heartless, egomaniac and extremely egotistic perfectionist with a awful self-absorbed streak. He never tolerates anyone who mocks him, even to the steer of killing a pair of intoxicated bystanders who were simply crude to him, alongside their female companion, while proclaiming his own delusional magnificence. He sees himself as arrant since he is deity and identical brawny. The alone thing he ‘s weak to is the sun. That is why he turned other humans into demons and spread his blood so that one of them might find a solution against the sunlight, so he can become sincerely arrant. He by and large wants to keep himself out of danger by using his allies and wants to enjoy his life without any injury coming to himself. Muzan is besides shown to be intolerant towards failure, shown when he purged the Lower Ranks after the death of Rui the Lower Rank Five, plainly because he believed the Lower Ranks were becoming nothing but useless failures, and he alone needed Upper Ranks to do his dirty work rather. In cattiness of this, Muzan spared Enmu, the Lower Rank One, because he admired Enmu ‘s sadistic streak and gave him a part of his blood which the latter had shown when facing sealed death. Muzan besides sees his subordinates as nothing but useful tools towards them, and all of his subordinates were once human who followed him because of their hopeless life or sadistic mottle. Muzan lures in people at their lowest to become demons, much corrupting them wholly. Rui, Gyutaro, Daki and Akaza are prime examples of this.

Behind the myriad of facades Muzan displays, and wholly offsetting his insatiate ego and crave for perfection, Muzan has besides proven to be quite cowardly. He constantly avoids conflict whenever he can, prove during his confrontation with Giyu and Tanjiro. He states that the duet managing to survive should already be sufficient and that they should barely live to earn their wages and put a stop to the hertz of revenge. This trait besides complements his manipulative nature, bending many demons to his will to do his bid while he does n’t get his hands dirty. His cowardice was further testify during his confrontation with Yoriichi Tsukiguni. After arrogantly taunting and mocking the Demon Slayer, Muzan groveled and crawled aside when he was defeated, trying to run away. Muzan has attempted numerous times to escape, either by splitting himself or merely running away, he besides remarks multiple times for the Demon Hunters to equitable die and not give up crusade, once again cementing his cowardly nature. He subverts this cowardice in his last moments, accepting that he was going to die when burning in the sun, and deciding to leave behind a bequest by turning Tanjiro into the Demon King. While truly crying over Kagaya ‘s words that all things die in the end, Muzan remains pitiless for the countless atrocities he has committed and dies as he lived – an agglomeration of pure evil. To prevent himself from being exposed, he curses his subordinates in a terrific manner so that none of them may utter his name, or else they will be killed immediately in a ghoulish fit of cruelty. This showed him to be highly paranoid and fueled Tanjiro ‘s disgust towards him, causing Tanjiro to believe Muzan is the only true demon in the world. Muzan is very craft and intelligent. He is perceptive adequate to be able to seamlessly blend into human company and he even started a syndicate. He can hide his evil side and put on a friendly facade if necessary. He is manipulative and can promptly get people on his side for him to use them. His barbarous and levy nature has gained him the capital admiration of many demons .
