There will always be plenty of debate concerning the strongest and weakest members of a group as powerful as the Hashira of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, but what about the average members?
Some Demon Slayer Hashira are more potent than others, while others have more sad backstories and better character designs.
The Hahira grew in importance as the manga progressed, and while they all had significant contributions to the series, some were more notable than others.
Who Is The Most Average Demon Slayer Hashira?
The Demon Slayer manga has established that some Hashira are far more strong than others and has divided the nine characters into three power levels.
Where does that leave the others, with Gyomei Himejima, Sanemi Shinazugawa, Iguro Obama at the top, Matsuri Kanroji, Tengen Uzui, and Shinobu Kocho at the bottom?
Let’s look at Giyu Tomioka, Kyojuro Rengoku, and Muichiro Tokito to see why they’re the most average Demon Slayer Hashira?
Giyu Tomioka: The Water Hahira
Giyu Tomioka, the Water Hashira, could have become one of the most potent Demon Slayer Hashira, if he hadn’t been so adamant about not straining himself because he didn’t want to.
Giyu is a more normal Demon Slayer Hashira merely because he wouldn’t be one if he had his way.
He didn’t go all out in a fight until he fought alongside Tanjiro Kamado against Akaza, and even then, he chastised the villain for forcing him to do so.
Giyu was one of only two Hashira who survived the last battle against Muzan and the Upper Ranks, and he was the previous Hashira standing and fighting.
Lower Five was, however, the most powerful demon Giyu has killed in Demon Slayer, which isn’t quite as spectacular as some of Hashira’s other achievements.
Kyojuro Rengoku was a well-to-do kid who got himself into trouble.
Hahira is well compensated for her toil in Demon Slayer, who is one of the more subtle elements.
Kyojuro Rengoku descended from the Rengoku family’s long line of Flame Hashira, a prominent and affluent family.
He’s the only Demon Slayer Hashira who didn’t join the Demon Slayer Corps as a result of personal sorrow but rather because it’s what his family does.
All of this isn’t to say Rengoku was a brat or unworthy of his position; instead, he was the most fortunate of the Demon Slayer characters.
Demon Slayer’s Most Ordinary Hashira Is Muichiro Tokito
Tokito, the Mist Hashira, was powerful enough to 1v1 with an Upper-Rank Five and win.
Yet, from his austere disposition to his unoriginal character design, he’s the most “meh” of all the Hahira.
Muichiro only donned a baggy version of the normal Demon Slayer Corps uniform to make his moves harder to predict.
The others have all swagged out their Demon Slayer Corps uniforms to various degrees, making them stand out in a crowd.
Even though he’s perhaps the finest swordsman on this list, his drab appearance and general emotionlessness make him as generic as any other Hahira.
To be fair, Gomez and Sanemi wouldn’t have been able to fight Kokushibo if Muichiro hadn’t given him a fatal wound.
Muichiro might not have received the posthumous title of Most Average Demon Slayer if he had lived through this encounter. Demon Slayer Hashira had spent more time focusing on his personality than his history.
