1 – Gyomei Himejima (Rock Pillar): He is the strongest Hashira in Demon Slayer. This fact has been established in the manga, as Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu all agree that he is the strongest member of the Demon Slayer Corps.

2 – Sanemi Shinazugawa (Pillar of Wind): He is one of the strongest Pillars in the series. He was so strong that he went around hunting demons with mountain blades when he was a child.

3 – Muichiro Tokito (Pillar of Mist): He is the most talented and young swordsman of the Demon Slayer Corps. He was able to become Mist Hashira within two months of taking up a sword.

4 – Giyu Tomioka (Water Pillar): While he wasn’t necessarily impressive during the fight against Akaza, he did prove to be quite strong during the fight against Muzan.

5 – Obanai Iguro (Serpent Pillar): In terms of overall combat skills, Iguro is pretty close to Giyu Tomioka.

6 – Rengoku Kyojuro (Pillar of Flame): He is definitely stronger than Mitsuri, since he was his mentor when he joined the organization.

7 – Mitsuri Kanroji (Pillar of Love): Kanroji doesn’t seem like a character that possesses a lot of strength, but that’s not the case at all. He possesses a level of strength higher than average humans due to his muscular build.
