Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed anime and manga series. It follows the tale of Tanjiro, who is trying to turn her sister Nezuko into a human again. She was transformed into a demon by the main antagonist of the series, Muzan Kibutsuji, who also killed the rest of Tanjiro’s family. Nezuko then later become one of the Strongest Female Characters In Demon Slayer.
Throughout the journey of Demon Slayer, fans meet several women. However, only a few of them were strong enough to leave their impact on the story. So, here is the list of the 13 strongest female characters in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba
The first name on this list is Makomo, who was the former apprentice of Sakonji Urokodaki. The same person who trained the likes of Tanjiro and Guys. However, Makomo didn’t get much time to reveal her strength as he died during the final selection test along with another student named Sabito. She has a really kind and helpful personality, as she always helped Tanjiro during his training by pointing out the flaws in his techniques.
12: Spider Demon (Daughter)
The older sister Spider Demon appeared when Tanjiro and his friends came across one of Twelve Blood Moon Kizuki for the very first time. She has a body count of 80 humans. However, despite being powerful enough, she was no match for Rui. Also, the insect Hashira Shinobu managed to defeat her without any difficulty.
11: Spider Demon (Mother)
The mother Spider Demon was also a part of the Spider demon family. However, she is not the biological mother of any of her children. Just like the sister demon, the mother demon was used and dominated by Rui. She can even create puppets using spider webs and fight her opponents from a distance. In her ending moments, she was happy that she would finally rest in peace, and the other family members won’t ridicule her anymore.
10: Serpent Demon
The Serpent Demon was one of the strongest female demons. She is even worshipped by the members of Iguro’s family.However, nothingg much is known about this demon except for the fact that she had a sinister liking towards Obanai. In the past, Hashiras was sent to slay her, and they did their job without any struggle. So, it is likely that the strength of the Serpent Demon was beneath that of the Twelve Kizuki.
Susamaru is one of the strongest female demons that Tanjiro and his friends have faced in the anime series so far. She was sent by Muzan Kibutsuji himself to assassinate Tanjiro. Her superior physical strength and her great intellect made her one of the strongest female characters in Kimetsu no Yaiba.
6. Kanae Kocho
The next name on this list is Kanae Kocho. She was the Flower Hashira and was the older sister of the insect Hashira, Shinobu Kocho. Kanae Kocho proves herself as one of the strongest female demon slayer characters the moment she competes against the Upper Rank 2 demons. She managed to give a pretty tough fight to a demon-like Doma. However, she was fatally injured during the battle that led to her death.
7: Kanao Tsuyuri
Kanao Tsuyur is an adoptive sister of Kocho and Shinobu. She has been fighting demons from a very young age and was trained by two Hashiras. She even showed flexibility and strength when Shinobu was training Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu. Also, Kanao Tsuyuri is a perfect candidate to become the next Hashira.
The anime fans are yet to see Daki, but they already saw her glimpse in Demon Slayer Season 2 trailer. Daki is the main antagonist of Entertainment District Arc and is one among the Upper-Rank Demon directly working under Muzan Kibutsuji. She has exceptional strength and is capable of sending her opponent only with a mere punch. Daki’s monstrous strength made her one of the strongest characters of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba.
5: Shinobu Kocho
The Insect Hashira, Shinobu Kocho, is certainly one of the strongest female characters in Demon Slayer. She doesn’t even have enough strength to behead any demon. So, she uses poison on her sword to kill the demons. The lack of physical strength made it difficult for Shinobu to go toe to toe against the Upper-Rank Demons. However, she is still strong enough to give them a good fight with her sheer intellect and skills.
Tamayo is one of the very few demons who managed to maintain her human emotions despite being a demon. She does not like to involve in a physical conflict as her main focus is on the medical side. Her pharmaceuticals surpassed every single character in the series. Tamayo does not rely on physical strength. Her ability to cast illusions is really strong. She managed to stop Muzan Kibutsuji with it. However, it’s a shame that Demon Slayer never featured Tamayo going all out in a battle.
Nakime wasn’t really strong when she was first introduced in the Infinity Castle Arc of Kimetu no Yaiba. She was the mysterious Biwa Demon whose job was to summon other demons on the command of Muzan Kibutsuji. However, after the death of Hantengu, she cemented her place as one of the four Upper-ranked demons of the Twelve Kizuki. After gaining strength, she became one of the main antagonists of the Infinity Castle Arc.
2: Nezuko Kamado
Nezuko Kamado is the cutest and strongest female demon of Kimetsu no Yaiba. Her power increases drastically as the series moves forward. She was able to stand against a guy like Giyuu, and that too at the beginning of the series. Nezuko’s physical strength evens that of the Upper-rank demons. She also has the ability to shrink and expand her body size. Nezuko’s Blood Demon art is also very powerful, and she already saved Tanjiro with its help against Rui in the anime series. She is also the very first demon who managed to develop resistance towards sunlight.
1: Mitsuri Kanroji
When the fans first saw Mitsuri Kanroji, they never thought of her to be the strongest female character of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba. The Love Hashira has a quite shy and bubbly personality, but once she’s in a battle, she is the exact opposite of it. She has an immense amount of strength despite her thin body. Mitsuri Kanroji uses a special sword, and only she is capable enough to wield it. She is quite flexible as well and is also one of the strongest Hashiras in the Demon Slayer. With bare hands, Mitsuri demonstrated how strong she is when in the manga, she grabbed one of Muzan’s tentacles and ripped it off him.
