Tanjiro Kamado

Tanjiro Kamado Season 1
Height5’5″ (165.1 cm)
Age15 (13 until episode 3, season 1)
BirthdayJuly 14th

It is not clear how tall Tanjiro Kamado is during the first few episodes of Demon Slayer season 1 as he is still a child, but by season 1 episode 3, he is 5’5″ (165.1 cm).

Tanjiro Kamado was born on July 14th and is 13 years old for the first few episodes of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. However, there is a 2-year time skip between episodes 2 and 3 of season 1, making Tanjiro 15 from episode 3 onwards.

Though he is shorter than other Demon Slayer Corps characters, he is still a dominating force. Tanjiro gets the job done quickly and effectively.

The death of his family and the demonization of Tanjiro’s little sister Nezuko acts as the starting point for the whole series. Through determination and uncompromising will, Tanjiro joins the Demon Slayer Corps with the hopes of finding a cure for his sister and enacting revenge on other demons.

Nezuko Kamado

Nezuko Kamado Season 1
Height5″ (152.4 cm)
Age14 (12 until episode 3, season 1)
BirthdayDecember 28th

As the younger sister of Tanjiro by a year, it makes sense that Nezuko Kamado would be smaller than her older brother at only 5″ (152.4 cm). Nezuko is not the smallest character in Demon Slayer, but her height does make her seem more vulnerable.

Nezuko Kamado was only 12 years old when she was turned into a demon. By episode 3 of season 1, she is 14 years old. Demons do not physically age, which means that Nezuko gets stuck in the body of a 12 year old from the very beginning of season 1.

However, Nezuko’s sweet and youthful look is quickly varnished the minute anyone threatens her older brother, Tanjiro.

Zen’itsu Agatsuma

Zen'itsu Agatsuma Season 1
Height5’5″ (165.1 cm)
BirthdaySeptember 3rd

Zen’itsu Agatsuma is 16 years old and a year older than Tanjiro, but he is the same height as him standing at 5’5″ (165.1 cm).

Even though he is the same height as Tanjiro, Zen’itsu is perceived to be a lot shorter due to his cowardness. Physically, Zen’itsu is very strong and could easily take many of the other Demon Slayer Corps members in a fight.

Tanjiro, on the other hand, has a confident personality making him seem much taller than Zen’itsu.

Inosuke Hashibira

Inosuke Hashibira Season 1
Height5’5″ (165.1 cm)
BirthdayApril 22nd

Also measuring 5’5″ (165.1 cm), Inosuke Hashibira is a skilled Demon Slayer. His height conceals his strength well but in no way limits it.

Inosuke Hashibira is the same age as Tanjiro – 15 years old. He lacks the social skills that most 15 years olds have because he was raised by boars in the wild, so he can often seem much younger than he is.

He has the expert ability of scent and can rearrange his body to suit his needs. Not only will Inosuke pick a fight with anyone who looks at him the wrong way, but his ability to contort his body into any shape he needs means that he will most likely win. However, he is such a skilled swordsman that he doesn’t need to use his unique abilities half of the time.

Kanao Tsuyuri

Kanao Tsuyuri Season 1
Height5’1″ (154.9 cm)
BirthdayMay 19th

Despite being older than Nezuko by 2 years at 16 years old, Kanao Tsuyuri barely surpasses her height. She is only an inch taller than Nezuko at 5’1″ (154.9 cm).

As the series progresses, she does begin to open up to her fellow Demon Slayer Corps members but tends to stay out of big decisions, so she doesn’t get emotionally attached.

Kanao’s fearless intellect is often played down due to her closed-off personality. Like Inosuke, she does start to open up more as the anime progresses but still prefers not to influence decisions made by others.

Gen’ya Shinazugawa

Gen'ya Shinazugawa Season 1
Height5’11” (180.3 cm)
BirthdayJanuary 7th

Though the younger of the Schinazugawa brothers, Gen’ya is the taller. In fact, at 5’11 (180.3 cm), he is one of the tallest teens in the whole anime. He may look older, but Gen’ya Shinazugawa is only 16 years old.

His height does serve to intimate those around him, which isn’t softened by his moody, hot-headed personality. He is quick to anger in the 1st season of the show but mellows out by the 3rd. His relationship with his older brother (Sanemi) remains turbulent.

Sanemi Shinazugawa

Sanemi Shinazugawa Season 1
Height5’10” (177.8 cm)
BirthdayNovember 9th

Sanemi Shinazugawa may be 21 years old and 5 years older than his brother Gen’ya, but he is slightly shorter, measuring 5’10” (177.8 cm).

If Gen’ya is hot-tempered, then Sanemi is simply aggressive, which doesn’t help his status as the Wind Hashira. He is responsible for the death of their mother which tore the two brothers apart – even if Sanemi killed her to protect his younger brother.

Giyu Tomioka

Giyu Tomioka Season 1
Height5’9″ (175.3 cm)
Age21 (19 until seen again in episode 15, season 1)
BirthdayFebruary 8th

At the start of season 1, Giyu ages from 19 in the first few episodes to 21 when he appears again in episode 15. But his height stays the same: 5’9″ (175.3 cm). He is one of the few characters that we meet before the 2 year time skip between episodes 2 and 3.

Giyu is one of the older members of the Demon Slayer Corps. His status is not necessarily reflected in his height like tends to be the case in Attack on Titan, but instead in his strength.

However, he is much taller than Tanjiro and the other main characters. This can make his disinterest in other characters seem like intimidation but he is actually a gentle, caring guy.

Shinobu Kocho

Shinobu Kocho Season 1
Height4’11” (149.9 cm)
BirthdayFebruary 24th

Shinobu Kocho’s 4’11” (149.9 cm) height very much works in her favor as her cute and calm appearance conceals a vicious personality. At 18 years old, she is 2 years older than Tanjiro but has a far more developed hatred for demons as they killed her sister. 

When we are first introduced to Shinobu, she is a smiling delight. But her witty tongue soon pulls down older, taller Demon Slayers Corps members with a few words.

This cruelty is not necessarily driven by her status as the Insect Hashira but by her pure hatred for demons.

Tengen Uzui

Tengen Uzui Season 1
Height6’6″ (198.1 cm)
BirthdayOctober 31st

One of the tallest and oldest Demon Slayer Corps characters, Tengen Uzui towers 6’6″ (198.1 cm) which is significantly taller than Tanjiro and Nezuko. When he is introduced in the series, his height can be both intimidating and reassuring.

Tengen Uzui is 23 years old, making him one of the oldest main supporting characters in Demon Slayer.

Tengen is a complex character to pin down. His father trained him to be a ruthless ninja, tricking him into killing his siblings to achieve self-fulfillment. Once he could get out of his father’s clutches, Tengen started to break his father’s habits.

Mitsuir Kanroji

Mitsuir Kanroji Season 1
Height5’6″ (167.6 cm)
BirthdayJune 1st

Also known as the Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji is 19 years old and 5’6″ (167.6 cm). Her entire appearance is far louder than most of the other Hashiras with bright pink hair and luminescent green eyes. Compared to most of the other Hashiras, she looks far younger than she is.

She may have only appeared in the show a few times so far, but she has been very impactful on Tanjiro’s character development.

Obanai Iguro

Obanai Iguro Season 1
Height5’4″ (162.6 cm)
BirthdaySeptember 15th

Though he is the Serpent Hashira, Obanai Iguro is fairly small for a male character in Demon Slayer, standing at only 5’4″ (162.6 cm).

At 21 years old, Obanai Iguro is the perfect example of an average Hashira – though it is hard for a Hashira to be average compared to other human characters.

It is yet to be determined just how powerful Obanai is, but considering he is a Hashira, it can be assumed that is he is highly skilled. Even if his only real skill shown so far is that of mystery.

Senjurō Rengoku

Senjurō Rengoku Season 1
Height5’1″ (154.9 cm)
BirthdayApril 27th

Senjurō Rengoku is only 12 when season 1 starts, which is why he is only 5’1″ (154.9 cm) tall.

Despite coming from a long line of Flaming Hashiras, Senjurō is not a skilled Demon Slayer. He does try his best to follow in his family’s footsteps but quickly comes up short.

Muichiro Tokito

Muichiro Tokito Season 1
Height5’3″ (160 cm)
BirthdayAugust 8th

Despite being the same age as Nezuko at 14 years old, Muichiro Tokito is slightly taller at 5’3″ (160 cm). However, unlike Nezuko, Muichiro is very standoffish.

He is the Mist Harisha but lacks the social skills that most of the other Harishas have. This is not due to a lousy personality but rather a lack of memory.

Before the series starts, Muchiro undergoes a tragic event that erases his memories. He is not closed-off because of a tragic past but because he can not remember how to express his emotions.

Gyumei Himejima

Gyumei Himejima Season 1
Height7’2″ (218.4 cm)
BirthdayAugust 23rd

Gyumei Himejima is the tallest character in Demon Slayer so far at 7’2″ (218.4 cm), though he is yet to become an established character.

At 27 years old, Gyumei Himejima is the most senior acting Hashira. He is the stone Hashira, though very little is known about Gyumei at this point. However, based on the Demon Slayer manga, he is a very strong, dedicated Demon Slayer Corps member.

Kyojuro Rengoku

Kyojuro Rengoku Season 1
Height5’10” (177.8 cm)
BirthdayMay 10th

Kyojuro Rengoku is one of the taller characters in the show at 5’10 (177.8 cm). Kyojuro Rengoku is 20 years old and is a fresh change of pace to the doom and gloom of the Demon Slayer Corps, acting as the Fire Hashira (if you couldn’t already tell from his hair).

Kyojuro can simply be described as a good guy. His charm and ability to see the best in a bad situation sets a nice change of pace to the gloomy backstories of many of the other characters.


Sabito Season 1

Only 13 years old, little is known about Sabito. It is never made clear in the show just how tall Sabito is before he dies early on in the series.

What we do know is that Sabito’s teachings will have a lasting impact on Tanjiro and his demon-slaying capabilities.

Sabito pushed Tanjiro to his limits during his short time teaching the Demon Slayer Corps member and Tanjiro’s full potential was realized.

Muzan Kibutsuji

Muzan Kibutsuji Season 1
Height5’10” (177.8 cm)

Muzan Kibutsuji is clearly the main antagonist in the Demon Slayer series even though he has only appeared a few times so far. Part of his impact is his height of 5’10” (177.8 cm) which is one of the tallest in the show.

It is unclear exactly how old Muzan Kibutusji is, only that he is more than 10,000 years old. This makes him the oldest demon of the whole series.

However, what really drives his antagonistic quality home is his uncaring temper and willingness to kill even his own people. He is set up to be the perfect heartless villain.

From the power he has exhibited so far, the Demon Slayer Corps crew will have to up their game to defeat Muzan and his band of demons.


Tamayo Season 1
Height4’11” (149.9 cm)
BirthdayJuly 2nd

Another character that is yet to make an appearance more than a few times, Tamayo is thought to be 4’11” (149.9 cm). Tamayo is approximately 500 years old and is the only demon whose birthday has been confirmed by the Demon Slayer creators: July 2nd.

What we do know of Tamayo is that despite her short stature, she had the skill and guts to try and kill Muzan.

She was unsuccessful but did manage to break away from Muzan’s control, focusing her powers now on medicine and pharmaceuticals.

Yushirō Yamamoto

Yushirō Yamamoto Season 1
Height5’2″ (157.5 cm)

Unlike other demons, Yushirō Yamamoto was made by Tamayo and not Muzan. Perhaps this is why he is shorter than many of the other demons at only 5’2″ (157.5 cm).

Yushirō Yamamoto is roughly 35 years old, considerably younger than all of the other demons in Demon Slayer.

Yushirō may not be strong enough to kill Muzan, but he was strong enough to prevent him from changing into his demon form with the help of some Demon Slayers, partly because Muzan has no control over Yushirō.

Despite being a demon, Yushirō has shown to be working on being a good guy. He has somehow made it possible to survive without hunting humans and even help to heal Tanjiro from the brink of death.

Aoi Kazaki

Aoi Kazaki Season 1
Height5’4″ (162.6 cm)

Rather small for a Demon Slayer Corps member at 5’4″ (162.6 cm), Aoi Kazaki is shown to be a little weaker than some of the other members. Aoi Kazaki is 16 years old, which is an average age for one of the newer Demon Slayer Corps members.

She doesn’t fight demons but does work at the Butterfly Mansion and is an important member. To make up for her lack of skill, Aoi is very tough, pushing Tanjiro and his friends to their limits in training.


Akaza Season 1
Height5’8″ (172.7 cm)

Introduced in the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: The Movie – Mugen Train, Akaza is moderately tall 5’8″ (172.7 cm), and is one of the tallest characters introduced yet. Akaza is thought to be roughly 200 years old, if not older.

In the movie, his fight with Rengoku was certainly one to remember, with his height helping him show his brute strength.


Daki Season 1
Height5’7″ (170.2 cm)

It is unclear how tall Daki is as she is often in her demon form, which warps the character’s appearance. She is taller than Tanjiro but a lot shorter than Muzan, so fans estimate that she stands at around 5’7″ (170.2 cm).

At an estimated 113+ years old, Daki is one of the younger demons featured in the series. Still, this doesn’t mean she is any less villainous.

Daki is one of the main villains of Demon Slayer, though her cold-heartedness is less because of her nature and more because she wants to earn Muzan’s praise.

She is a very powerful demon being part of the Upper 6. Her brother Gyutaro was responsible for her demonization though rather than tearing them apart, the act made them inseparable.


Guyataro Season 1
Height5’10” (177.8 cm)

Like his sister, it is hard to tell Gyuatro’s true height. But based on other characters, he looks to be as tall as Muzan – 5’10” (177.8 cm). Gyutaro is a fair few years older than Azaka at 126+ years old. 

Gyutaro is one of the more gruesome-looking demons that has shown up in the anime so far with a brutal personality to match.

Kagaya Ubuyashiki

Kagaya Ubuyashiki Season 1

Kagaya Ubuyashiki hasn’t been in the Demon Slayer anime enough to really distinguish her height. She is 23 years old, but it is unclear when she was born.

What is clear is that the Ubuyashiki family is very powerful with the ability to have foresight into the future. That is why Kagaya is able to make guesses that turn out to be true.

Sakoji Urokodaki

Sakonji Urokodaki Season 1
Height5’8″ (172.7 cm)

Sakonji Urokodaki is 52 years old and 5’8″ (172.7 cm) tall. The oldest featured human character in Demon Slayer. He is old enough to have once been the Water Hashira, served his time, and then retired, passing the title off to Giyu.

Though retired, Sakonji still taps into his Hashira powers by acting as the main water breathing teacher.
