Why Does Nezuko Wear The Muzzle: Right with the release of Demon Slayer, the popularity for the character of Nezuko has seen an exponential rise in popularity. From her powers to her love life to her looks, everything has been under debate. One such aspect that raises many eyebrows is her Bamboo Muzzle. Even though the beginning of the anime narrates the story of how she got the muzzle, the use of the object is yet unknown. Plus, people keep asking what would happen when if she took it off. Well, you have come to the right place for the answers. Here you will find everything about Nezuko’s Muzzle and what is use of it.
When Was The Muzzle Put On Her?
Of all the members of Tanjiro’s family, Nezuko was the only surviving member after the massacre. But the only member was also not in her normal state. It turned out that Nezuko was gradually turning into a demon. She had grown fangs and her powers were developing day by day. In addition to this, she was also developing a strong urge to devour human blood and flesh. In the Final Selection Arc of the story, Tanjiro met with the Water Hashira Giyuu Tomioka.
At first, even he was skeptical of Nezuko’s state as a demon. But when he came to know that Nezuko was not the threatening demon as the others. Thus, this was the time he gave her the muzzle. But what was the use of the bamboo muzzle? Keep reading further to find out.
Why Does Nezuko Wear The Muzzle?
It is explained in the manga that the Nezuko’s muzzle helps her in controlling the urge to consume human blood. In addition, it also helps in hiding her fangs. Carrying a demon in the open might cause more havoc than the demon itself. Thus, with the muzzle on, Tanjiro could safely take Nezuko all around in towns. But would her powers be affected if the muzzle is taken off? Will Nezuko start attacking humans? Well, the answer is not as simple. Nothing has been black or white in Demon Slayer ever. Thus, all actions have grey consequences in the long run.
What Will Happen If Nezuko Takes It Off?
There are two scenarios in which taking off the muzzle would affect Nezuko. In the initial days of her conversion, taking off the piece might be more dangerous. This is because Nezuko was not well-versed in controlling her demonic urges. But as time passed by, she learned how to control those urges and also how to help any human in danger. Very early during her conversion, Water Hashira Giyuu Tomioka had taught her not to attack any human.
Plus, the value of protecting them was also put in her early on. Thus, even if the muzzle was taken off, she wouldn’t attack a human being. But in the early stages, she might not have done the same. Even so, Tanjiro would not let blood get on his sister’s hands. And so, we hope that you got the answer for all the questions regarding Nezuko’s muzzle.
