I want to die defeating Muzan, and I pray that it will purify my filthy blood. Then, if I am reborn as a human being in a peaceful world without demons, I will tell you of my feelings for you.
  Obanai Iguro in regards to Mitsuri Kanroji in Sorrowful Love

Obanai is a fairly mesomorphic valet of short stature and a pale complexion. He has straight-edged black haircloth of varying lengths, the longest reaching down to his shoulders and the shortest stop at his cheekbones, which he wears down with two shorter strands hanging between his eyes. His eyes are almond-shaped and tilt upwards on the far sides, and are unusual due to Obanai possessing heterochromia—his right eye is yellow and his left eye is turquoise. He is partially blind as he can barely see out of his properly eye. [ 4 ] Obanai ‘s mouth is besides unusual : when he was twelve, it was forcefully cut from its corners to his ears to make it appear more like that of a snake, leaving a large wind that he keeps hidden under the bandage he wears over his lower expression. [ 5 ] He wears a dark blue amobarbital sodium version of the standard Demon Slayer uniform, along with a black and white pinstriped haori, the hem and cuffs of which are striped distance ways rather than vertically, which covers his hands. Obanai besides sports bandages in place of the leg-wraps around his calves giving the resemblance of kyahan, adenine well as another set of bandages that cover his mouth, and flannel with blue-strapped zōri on his feet. He is besides always seen with his white snake, Kaburamaru, wrapped around his shoulders. During their battle with Muzan, Obanai and the early remaining Hashira are attacked by the demon ‘s flail whips, and Obanai is left with three long biased scratches over his eyes, rendering him wholly blind.

Obanai is a very harsh and stern individual who shows no concern for those who do not abide by the Demon Slayer rules. His expectations for his mate Demon Slayers are nigh-unrealistic, berating Tengen Uzui for suffering heavy wounds against the “ weakest ” Upper Rank and telling him to “ fight to the death ” when Tengen insists on retiring. Tengen ‘s retirement besides highlights Obanai ‘s devotion to the future of the Demon Slayer Corps, often at others ‘ expense, such as when he ties up lower-ranked Demon Slayers and uses them as obstacles during Hashira Training for relatively petty reasons. He besides sees the modern Demon Slayer recruits as weak and incapable of improvement, expressing storm when Tengen informs him that Tanjiro Kamado survived the battle with Daki and Gyutaro. Obanai has a rather big habit of pointing at people with his finger while berating them or talking ill about person. Despite his merciless personality, there are two people he cares profoundly about : Kagaya Ubuyashiki and Mitsuri Kanroji. He has a crush on Mitsuri, which is most of their companions have detected save for Tanjiro and Mitsuri herself.

[ 8 ] Like all the Hashira, Obanai has a big deal of deference for Kagaya besides .
Obanai is besides noted to possess an huge sense of self-loathing due to the fact that he was born to a selfish and base kin who would mercilessly sacrifice evening neonate children to a demon for their own monetary acquire. Obanai considers himself and his family so tainted that years after they were killed, he still felt as if his family were digging their nails into his skin to make certain he could n’t go anywhere. [ 9 ] He even goes a far as to believe that, in decree for him to ever be worthy of Mitsuri, he would first have to die and cleanse himself of his corrupt rake before confessing his feelings to her. [ 9 ] His breeding besides seems to be the cause of his gynophobia since he was born into a family of only women who treated him like a joyride. The injury of his past can besides be seen in the form of his grimace bandages that he dons to cover the nasty scars he received, never removing it until the concluding struggle. Obanai has an incredible feel of decision, continuing the competitiveness against Muzan even after he is wholly blinded and covered in wounds. His ability to protect Giyu and Tanjiro throughout the fight, equally well as thanking Tanjiro for helping him and late even took a blow for him proves that Obanai was able to drop his initial grudges and become friendly with people he was uncivil to prior .

After Obanai, Giyu, Sanemi, Gyomei, Zenitsu, Inosuke and Kanao were heavily injured by Muzan ‘s attack, Obanai was the first to regain consciousness and aid Tanjiro despite having his eyes clawed out during the attack earlier. tied though Muzan was hard weakened by the drugs in his system, he and Tanjiro managed to fend off and push the Demon King into a corner by themselves, displaying incredible stamina and endurance. After getting directly hit by Muzan ‘s Shockwave Energy Blast proficiency, he however took a collision for Tanjiro when Muzan was about to bite his head off. When the Demon King swelled his flesh and exponentially grew in size, Obanai even possessed adequate stamina to unleash one technique that aided in slowing Muzan down. evening though Obanai lost his life at the end of the conflict, he was undoubtedly one of the biggest contributors in subduing the Demon King. Demon Slayer Mark: During the concluding struggle against Muzan, Obanai awakened his own Demon Slayer Mark.
