What would Kimetsu no Yaiba’s hashira look like as demon moons?

This artist manages to turn these powerful demon hunters into the enemy

The second season of Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) has ended with the impressive fight between Tengen Uzui and Gyutaro, the sixth upper demon moon, but the fandom is not ready to put this franchise to rest yet. While we wait for updates on the third season (hopefully April 3, 2022), netizens are keeping the spark alive with all kinds of projects, from cosplays to fan-fiction. Of course, this means that there are also illustrations between them, and one of them is going viral after giving Hashira a makeover by turning them into superior demon moons..

The work is courtesy of jeezartz, an artist on Instagram that you may know This user makes a ton of high-quality anime artwork based on his favorite IPs. During the second season of Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer), jeezartz started inking a couple of hashiras as upper demon moons and those posters made their fans wonder what these hunters would be like as demons.

Shinobu looks downright terrifying in her buggy makeover, and is even given some purple markings to show her status as Upper Moon. Kanroji receives some delicate pink tattoos to highlight her strength, while Ginyuu sports some blue horns and wavy markings. Obani is more or less pure nightmarish sensation with her demonic snakes, while Rengoku’s flames burn bitterly on her own skin. Yuichiro has a low-key makeover with two gently glowing horns, while Tengen is the definition of flash with his red-tipped horns. And of course, Sanemi and Gyotomei join the gang with some really intricate demon markings.

Some of the fan comments of Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) have the following opinion:

  • “They would be extremely powerful. As humans they are the strongest Hashira generation in over 100 years, most upper moons were nobody until they turned and lived for a long time. Give that to the Hashira and they will probably be unstoppable”
  • “My take on Gyomei: He already has incredible strength and speed at the base, add an extra pair of arms and OP blood art and he’d be unstoppable. If he stays blind, he’d also be the only upper moon who could conquer decapitation.”
  • “Demonic Gyomei could probably topple Muzan. Especially if her weapon is also demonized.”

As you can see, the Hashira are just as terrifying as the Upper Demon Moons of Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer), if not more so. This group of pillars is said to be the strongest in a century, so you can imagine what kind of strength they would have as demons. So if the franchise ever wants to explore a hypothetical one-shot featuring the Hashiras, well, let’s just say their fans would like the idea.
