Gyomei Himejima is a very popular character among the Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) fandom. but if you haven’t read the manga yet, maybe you have spent a lot of time asking yourself: “what is it that makes it so special?”. To tell the truth, nobody blames you because it has never had its moment to shine in the series, but those who have read the entire manga series know its true potential and strength.
The first time we see some of his power in the manga is during Hashira Training, after the Swordsmith Village Arc, when this elite group prepares to battle Muzan Kibutsuji’s forces. Gyomei Himejima manages to move a rock through a city without any problemFurthermore, he can be sitting under a waterfall that could cause a lot of damage to the body due to the height and speed without even showing any displeasure.
The origin of his power may come directly from his past as a monk. He was already strong before becoming a demon hunter, despite having a fragile body and not being able to see, because his mission was not to “surpass the rest”, but to protect what was dearest to him.. She was taking care of nine children inside a temple, and one of them ran out of the compound and met a demon.
That demon caused a lot of trouble in the city and endangered the children of the temple, unfortunately Gyomei was only able to save one of the nine children. It should be noted that at that time, he was not part of the demon slayers in Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) nor did he have a Nichirin sword in his possession with which to cut off his head. Despite his frail body, he was able to physically defeat the demon for several hours with bare fists until the sunlight killed the monster.
The true power of Gyomei Himejima in Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)
This event expelled him from the temple because he had a new goal: Defeat these demons to protect his loved ones. As we see in Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer), his strength is not only physical, but as he demonstrated in his fight with the demon, it is will. Once he was recruited into the organization, Gyomei spent all her time honing his skills and training his body beyond limits. He was so strong that the upper moon number one considered him the strongest fighter he had faced in centuries..
Kokushibo, this demon second only to Muzan Kibutsuji, recognized that Gyomei took the human body and refined it to the limit. The latter was so strong that he was not only fighting at the same level with no great difficulty, but he also managed to save Sanemi numerous times as he was fighting quite recklessly out of her ego and fury.
