1. Demon Slayers Vs. Muzan

The Top 10 Demon Slayer Battles

The last battle against Muzan, Demon Slayer’s penultimate encounter, comprises almost every remaining living character in the series. Muzan is being pursued by the remaining Hashira and Demon Slayers, who are attempting to keep him outside until the sun rises and he can be dissolved.

The trio of Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu come together for the final fight. Tanjiro finally fully masters the Sun Breathing technique and Muzan sees Yoriichi in him — though his skills do not match the previous Slayer. Muzan has finally killed thanks to everyone’s efforts, but the battle is costly.

2. Gyomei, Genya, Muichiro, & Sanemi Vs. Kokushibo

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesKokushibo is a Demon Slayer of Upper-Rank One, and he proves himself worthy of his title as three Hashira and another competent Demon Slayer battle him. Moon Breathing, a variant of Yoriichi’s Sun Breathing, is used by Kokushibo. In Demon Slayer, Yoriichi is Kokushibo’s long-dead twin brother and a pivotal character.

3. Rengoku Vs. Akaza

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesThe Flame Hashira’s final stand against one of the Upper Demon Moons surpassed all expectations, outburning and outdoing what everyone thought was possible.

Rengoku refuses to quit his job or his apprentice Demon Slayers, despite Akaza’s quick regeneration and unholy strength progressively chipping away at him.

Rengoku’s unfathomable resolve to achieve what he must, releasing a flood of Flame Breathing Techniques more spectacular than the previous, holds the entire bout together. It may have ended in tragedy, but there could not have been a more fitting tribute to such a larger-than-life figure.

4. Tanjiro & Inosuke Vs. Enmu

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesTanjiro and his friends find themselves fighting not just demons, but a complete train in one of the Mugen Train arc’s most epic battles.

Lower Rank One Enmu fused his body with the train the Demon Slayers boarded, leaving them fighting the very thing they were riding. Tanjiro and Inosuke fight to the death, revealing Enmu’s deformed body behind the normal train’s exterior with their swordsmanship. The two Demon Slayers team up and defeat Enmu’s Blood Demon Art.


5. Giyuu & Tanjiro Vs. Akaza

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesThe confrontation between Akaza and Tanjiro, which has been long anticipated by Demon Slayer fans, is Tanjiro’s manner of avenging Rengoku’s death. Tanjiro has a chance against Akaza with Giyuu on his side, who unlocks his Demon Slayer Mark during the fight.

During the battle, Tanjiro gains access to the “Transparent World,” a previously hinted-at notion that allows him to avoid Akaza’s strikes and defeat him. After this encounter, the “Transparent World” technique becomes increasingly common in Demon Slayer, establishing it as a viable fighting style.

6. Shinobu, Kanao, & Inosuke Vs. Douma

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesShinobu fights Douma, Upper-Rank Two, alone at the beginning of the duel. Shinobu, on the other hand, loses the fight and is sucked into Douma’s body, leaving Kanao and Inosuke to fight when they arrive.

Kanao and Inosuke hold personal grudges against Douma, Kanao for the killing of Shinobu, and Inosuke for the death of his mother. Despite the fact that neither of them is on Hashira’s level, they manage to overcome Douma with the help of Shinobu, who had consumed wisteria poison before being absorbed. They were able to put a stop to the demon’s reign of terror.

7. Tengen & Company Vs. Daki & Gyutaro

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesThe battle against Daki and Gyutaro is spread out over multiple battles. Initially, Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Tengen believe they are just fighting Daki; however, it is revealed that Daki’s brother, Gyutaro, has been occupying her body, implying that there are two separate opponents.

Tengen and Tanjiro face Gyutaro, while Zenitsu and Inosuke take on Daki. Both squads must work together to sever the heads of the demons at the same time while fighting separate fights.

8. Mitsuri & Obanai Vs. Nakime

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesEven though she isn’t named until later in Demon Slayer, Nakime is established early on as a demon that wields her biwa to rule Muzan’s, Infinity Castle.

The two Hashira try to confront Nakime when Mitsure and Obanai are stuck inside Infinity Castle. Although Nakime’s Blood Demon Art is not as lethal as other demons’, it is irritating and difficult for Hashira to travel because she is continually changing the environment. Yushiro saves them from a lengthy and tough fight by surprising Nakime and defeating her.

9. Hand Demon vs. Tanjiro

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesThe Final Selection was the first true test of Tanjiro’s abilities, as it required him to confront not only lesser demons in a survival test, but also a monster glutton. Tanjiro is guilty of the deaths of the remainder of Urokodaki’s students, including Sabito and Makomo, and it is up to him to exact vengeance. The hulky demon, despite its robust skin and never-ending rush of hands, wasn’t prepared for Tanjiro’s first journey into Water Breathing, thus all that boulder cutting came in useful.


10. Tanjiro & Nezuko vs. Rui

The Top 10 Demon Slayer BattlesTanjiro’s battle with the spidery Lower Moon set both swords and the internet went on fire, pushing him further than any demon before.

Although his blade is broken and the majority of his body is broken, Tanjiro refuses to submit, risking everything to free Nezuko from Rui’s webs. You’d think his unleashing Hinokami’s latent power would be the show-stopper, but then Nezuko walks up with her own Blood Demon Art to kick things up a notch.
