Muichiro Tokito (時透 無一郎) is a major character in the 2016-2020 dark fantasy manga series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and its 2019 anime adaptation. He is one of the two deuteragonists (alongside Mitsuri Kanroji) of the Swordsmith Village arc and its third season adaptation.

He is one of the nine Hashira, a group of the nine greatest Demon Slayers in the Demon Slayer Corps. Specifically, Muichiro is the Mist Hashira who made use of the Mist Breathing sword style. He is also the youngest of the Hashira at only 14 years old, being considered a prodigy of the Corps who became a Hashira only two months after joining the Demon Slayers.

He is voiced by Kengo Kawanishi in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Griffin Burns in the English version.

Appearance[]

Muichiro is a 14-year-old boy at the time of his death and had a youthful appearance befitting said demographic. His soft cyan eyes are large and empty-looking and his complexion is very light. He is fairly short and had a delicate figure which led Tanjiro to believe he is physically weak. Muichiro's black hair is long and straight and faded to soft cyan as it approached his waist. In keeping with his overall appearance, Muichiro wore his hair entirely loose. There are two clumps of hair protruding from each side of his head ever so slightly, and two strands of hair left down to frame his face that are barely shorter then the hair at his back. Lastly Muichiro had unkempt bangs over his forehead.

Like most Demon Slayers, Muichiro wore a variation of the standard Demon Slayer Corps uniform. However, Muichiro's customized uniform differed from the basic uniform in several ways. The sleeves of his uniform are far longer and looser then the standard, conveying a similar appearance to a kimono. Furthermore, there are no bands tying his trousers at the calves, which made them far looser then the standard uniform. Lastly, as opposed to the black shade attributed to most Demon Slayer uniforms, Muichiro's uniform had a slight turquoise-tint to it.

While his small physique certainly gives him advantages such as smaller hit detection, his size can be his liability when injured: because he is small he can succumb to wounds much quicker than his fellow Pillars who are bigger.

Personality[]

Muichiro can be described as sarcastic, but innocent, with a tendency to be insensitive without meaning to harm anyone. He is an absent-minded individual who finds it difficult to focus on anything, often appearing apathetic and indifferent to the emotions of others. Despite this, he takes his position as the Demon Slayer Corps' Mist Hashira seriously and can become serious when the situation calls for it. He is devoted to his master, Kagaya Ubuyashiki, but can also display a cold and arrogant side to those he doesn't respect.

Muichiro's past reveals a more compassionate and optimistic individual, but after the death of his older twin brother, he lost his memories and adopted his brother's indifferent personality. However, his interactions with Tanjiro helped him regain his memories and become more emotionally expressive, leading to him getting back his old personality, caring more for his peers. He also displays a kindness that aids him in building friendships among the Demon Slayers, making happy memories like those he shared with his family before his memory loss.

History[]

Muichiro is introduced after the Hashiras conduct a meeting with Kagaya Ubuyashiki regarding Nezuko's fate. Without caring for the meeting, he was distracted by the clouds passing over the mansion. Muichiro accepted Kagaya's order that Nezuko is an ally and a fellow Devil Hunter.

Muichiro is next seen hearing about Kyojuro Rengoku's death at Akaza's hands.

He isn’t seen until Swordsmith Village where he is seen arguing with Kotetsu about the Yoriichi Type Zero. Muichiro coldly states how little Kotetsu is to his worth before being called out by Tanjiro. Although he lets him talk, he soon knocks him out cold and takes the key to it. Soon he meets back up with Tanjiro before both run into Hantengu. Muichiro is swiftly able to decapitate it, but doesn’t know the demon wanted that all along and is blown away by one of the clones.

He lands away in a far off spot in the village and attempts to run back, but encounters Gyokko, Kotetsu, and Kanamori. Muichiro tries to decide between saving the chief of the folk who helped him, and chose the latter. Soon he engages in a fight against Gyokko and nearly drowns to death by him, if it weren’t for Kotetsu giving Muichiro some air bubbles to help him live.

As he was drowning, he reflects back on his past and unlocks the Demon Slayer Mark to help in his fight and becomes more of a matchup against Gyokko. Soon, Muichiro was able to behead Gyokko and save the two, but not before fainting.

Powers and Abilities[]

Muichiro, descendant of the first swordsman who pioneered the breath styles, is hailed as a genetic prodigy. From an early age, he exhibited innate powers that manifested unconsciously, fueled by a profound sense of hatred, particularly when it came to protecting his elder brother, Yuichiro.

This combination of genetic heritage and intense emotions may have awakened special abilities within Muichiro, allowing him to naturally develop his Abilities.

Overall Abilities: Muichiro is a powerful and skilled combatant, known for his talent and accomplishments at a young age. He became a Hashira after just two months of training, a feat achieved only by Gyomei Himejima. Muichiro can easily overpower older Demon Slayers like Tanjiro and Genya. After awakening his Demon Slayer Mark, he defeated Upper Rank Five Gyokko single-handedly. His techniques and contributions were crucial in defeating Upper Rank One Kokushibo.

Demon Slayer Mark: Muichiro's mark increases his offensive and defensive abilities when activated, granting him increased strength. However, the mark's effects are temporary and he suffers from the poison's effects once it disappears.

Bright Red Nichirin Sword: Muichiro dyed his Nichirin Sword bright red, hampering the regeneration of Kokushibo and contributing to his defeat.

Transparent World: Similar to Tanjiro, Muichiro gained the ability to see the Transparent World during his battle with Kokushibo, aiding him in landing a critical blow.

Extrasensory Perception: Muichiro has honed senses that allow him to discern the aura of demons from humans.

Immense Speed & Reflexes: Muichiro's speed and reflexes are exceptional, surpassing even Upper Rank demons. He can deflect and evade attacks with ease and perform movements faster than the eye can see. He decapitated Gyokko before the Upper Rank could react.

Immense Stamina & Endurance: Muichiro has incredible stamina and endurance, remaining steadfast even with severe injuries. He continued fighting despite having his arm, legs, and torso sliced.

Immense Strength: Despite his small physical build, Muichiro possesses immense strength, breaking armor and slicing through tough materials.

Omnipresent Rage: Muichiro's willpower and strength stem from his awakened rage, which is always present within him. He remained resolute in battle despite fatal injuries.

Master Swordsman: Muichiro is one of the most skilled swordsmen in the Demon Slayer Corps. He impressed Kokushibo, who has lived for much longer, and could keep up with Yoriichi Type Zero, a powerful swordsman doll.

Mist Breathing: Muichiro's proficiency in the Mist Breathing style is exceptional. He created a technique that played a pivotal role in defeating Gyokko.

Techniques: Muichiro has several powerful techniques, including thrust attacks, rapid slashes, circular slashes, quick dashes, and aerial slashes. His personal creation, the Obscuring Clouds technique, disorients enemies with changes in movement tempo.

Equipment: Muichiro wields a standard Nichirin katana, which can be dyed bright red with his Demon Slayer Mark. Note: This summary is a condensed version of the provided text, written in a less formal style.
