Tanjiro Kamado has taken it upon himself to support his family, ever since the death of his father. Although their lives may be hardened by tragedy, they've found happiness. But that ephemeral warmth is shattered one day when Tanjiro finds his family slaughtered, and the lone survivor, his sister Nezuko, turned into a demon. To his surprise, however, Nezuko still showed signs of human emotion and thought, thus he embarked on a quest to fight demons and find a cure for his sister and make her human again.

Weaknesses: Cannot use Sun Breath techniques more than a few times without exhausting himself, doing so after using Breath of Water techniques wrecks havoc on his body and Demon Slayer Mark takes a toll on his stamina | Wisteria Flower

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Water Breathing: is one of the five main Breathing Styles directly derived from the Sun Breathing. The Water Breathing mimics the element of water, specifically the flow and flexibility of the liquid and infuses it with the users swordsmanship.

  • First Form: Water Surface Slash: The swordsman generates enough momentum to create a powerful single concentrated slash.
  • Second Form: Water Wheel: The swordsman leaps and vertically spins forward in the air while releasing a flowing attack in a circular motion.
    • Second Form: Improved - Lateral Water Wheel: An alternate variation of Second Form: Water Wheel that uses a horizontal spin.
  • Third Form: Flowing Dance: The swordsman swings their blade at his opponent in a way that mimics the movement of waves on the surface of water.
  • Fourth Form: Striking Tide: The swordsman makes multiple consecutive slashes while twisting their body in a flowing fashion similar to a harsh tide.
  • Fifth Form: Blessed Rain After the Drought: A "sword strike of kindness" that kills the target with little to no pain. Used when the enemy surrenders.
  • Sixth Form: Whirlpool: The swordsman fiercely twists their upper and lower body, creating a whirlpool that cuts anything caught in it. It can be used in a place without footing, and if used underwater can generate a large whirlpool that draws in anything nearby in addition to cutting them up like a large blade.
    • Whirlpool: Flow: A combination of Third Form: Flowing Dance and Sixth Form: Whirlpool. The swordsman combines the footwork from Flowing Dance and the twisting aspect of Whirlpool, resulting in the swordsman to hack his surrounding, conjuring a twisting, swirling, vicious flow of water to redirect projectiles from multiple angles.
  • Seventh Form: Piercing Rain Drop: A fast and accurate stab, capable of reducing the impact of a moving target. The fastest form of this Breathing technique.
    • Seventh Form: Piercing Rain Drop - Curve: A modified strike that hits in an arc from an angle in order to minimize the impact of a moving target.
  • Eighth Form: Waterfall Basin: The swordsman cuts the target vertically.
  • Ninth Form: Splashing Water Flow: Minimizes the landing time and surface needed when landing, allowing the user to move without limits. Ideal when fighting in a place with no solid foothold.
    • Ninth Form: Splashing Water Flow - Turbulent
  • Tenth Form: Constant Flux: The most powerful Water Breathing technique. A continuous flowing attack which takes a form of a water dragon that increases in strength and power with each rotation.
  • Eleventh Form: Dead Calm: An extremely powerful defensive technique and the personal creation of the current Water Hashira, Giyu Tomioka. Giyu ceases all body movements and enters a state of complete tranquility, deflecting and blocking any incoming attacks with imperceptible speed. However, its effectiveness is limited as fast and numerous attacks can break through.

Sun Breathing: is a style of swordsmanship utilized by the first Demon Slayer to use "breaths", Yoriichi Tsugikuni, and serves as the basis for other Breathing Styles derived from it as a result of Yoriichi changing the breathing techniques to suit the individuals he taught. The Sun Breathing combat style seemingly mimics the burning effect of sunlight on demons and replicates it with the users special swordsmanship and movements.

  • Dance: - A single high-powered vertical slash.
    • Flash Dance: Developed and utilized only by Tanjiro Kamado. Tanjiro utilizes a similar method like the Thunderclap and Flash technique of the Thunder Breathing, allowing them to use an advanced version of Dance by inhaling huge amounts of oxygen, increasing the pumping of blood through the entire body, focusing it on the legs, and releasing it all to assault the target with a slash. This technique was capable of outspeeding Genya Shinazugawa and Nezuko Kamado, as well as the fleeing Hantengu, although it is still said to be slower than Zenitsu Agatsuma's Thunderclap and Flash.
  • Clear Blue Sky: The swordsman spins their body vertically to create a 360-degree slash. It is likely the predecessor/progenitor of the Water Breathing: Second Form - Water Wheel.
  • Raging Sun: The swordsman unleashes two horizontal slashes to hit or defend from incoming attacks.
  • Fake Rainbow: The swordsman utilizes this technique to evade incoming attacks with high-speed twists and rotations, thus creating afterimages. The afterimages work most effectively on enemies with good vision as they will probably fail attack the afterimage instead of the actual body of the user.
  • Fire Wheel: The swordsman leaps behind the opponent and spins in the air while releasing a flaming attack in a circular motion.
  • Burning Bones, Summer Sun: A powerful defensive technique. The swordsman unleashes a circular slash that defends from imminent frontal attacks.
  • Sunflower Thrust: A single thrust attack with the point of the blade. It is possible for this technique to be the progenitor for the Water Breathing: Seventh Form - Piercing Rain Drop and the Mist Breathing: First Form - Low Clouds, Distant Haze.
  • Solar Heat Haze: The swordsman charges towards the target, attacking it with a haze covered slash that seemingly fails to land, but actually does hit the target. This technique is possibly the predecessor of the Mist Breathing itself.
  • Setting Sun Transformation: The user backflips into the air to deliver a powerful upended flaming sword slash.
  • Beneficent Radiance: The swordsman spirals into the air and delivers a powerful slash that surrounds the enemy.
  • Dragon Sun Halo Head Dance: Possibly the Sun Breathing 's most powerful singular technique. The swordsman unleashes a continuous fast and powerful sword attack that takes the form of a flaming sun dragon and is capable of decapitating multiple enemies at once. It is possible that this technique is the predecessor of the Water Breathing Tenth Form - Constant Flux.
  • Flame Dance: A two-combo strike which starts with a vertical slash and then a horizontal one right after.
  • Thirteenth Form: The user continuously performs all twelve forms of the breathing style in repetitive succession to increase the accuracy and agility of his movements while reducing fatigue. This form was created solely for the purpose of killing Muzan, since the repetition of all twelve forms aims to destroy Muzan's twelve vital organs (seven hearts and five brains) that move freely inside his body thanks to his shape-shifting ability.

See-Through World: Through becoming aware of every part of his body, and "closing" any unneeded actions out like one would close their eyes when trying to hear something, Tanjirou can enter the "see-through world." His speed and strength increase dramatically, and he becomes capable of seeing through an enemy, becoming able to observe every muscle, blood vessels, lungs, and all their contractions. In this state, his battle spirit, emotions, and intent are impossible to detect.
