In a very short period of time, the Sound Hashira Tengen
Uzui from Demon Slayer : Entertainment Arc, became popular ever since the
releasing of the anime in winter 2022. His character traits, his beauty and his
fighting skills have captured millions of hearts in the blink of an eye. The expectations
from this character became extremely high after the Flame Hashira Rengoku
Kyojuro’s performance in Mugen Train Arc. And it was no surprise, Tengen Uzui
has met each of them precisely. Let’s talk about the sound Hashira Tengen Uzui.
This article contains some major spoilers, if you have not watched
the anime yet, you can skip straight to the tutorial.
UZUI’S LIFE AND BACKGROUND :
Tengen is eccentric and flashy, and he always looks for ways
to be "flamboyant". He enjoys festivals and is very into flashy
clothing. Tengen’s exuberant and flamboyant
personality makes him very demanding of others. He treated the Demon Slayers
harshly during the Hashira Training Arc, and even insulted them for not having
any substance, even though they could barely survive his stamina
training. Also, He hates plainness, which is evident when the Hashira
expresses his hatred for it. Even though Tengen has a caring side, he hides it
behind an extravagant facade and only shows it to those who are very close to
him. Before joining Demon Slayer Corps, Uzui Tengen trained as a Shinobi, which
led to extreme training, and also caused his siblings to die, except for his
younger brother, who just turned cold and heartless. Tengen possesses great
skills in explosives and weaponry due to his intensive training as a shinobi. The
fact that Uzui Tengen admires Kyojuro Rengoku and compares himself to the other
Hashira implies that he has an inferiority complex. According to him, he is not
gifted with talent, and he doesn't believe he can match Kyojuro's proficiency. As
Tengen reflects on the loss of so many lives over the years, he also expresses
regret. Kagaya Ubuyashiki was kind enough to praise Tengen for his hard choice.
He also said that Tengen showed a willingness to fight for human life, despite
all the contradictions and conflicts he hides behind his confident façade. This
made Tengen admire Kagaya. Tengen, a traditional shinobi who values the
completion of the mission above all else has now rejected this ideology after
witnessing its effects on his family. He now believes that his wives and
the Demon Slayers he commands should be more concerned about their lives than
his missions. Tengen hated the idea of being like his father or brother
who were indifferent to human life and wanted to abandon everything he had been
UZUI’S POWERS AND ABILITIES :
In his capacity as a Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps,
Tengen is among the most skilled and powerful swordsmen within the
organization. Unlike most Demon Slayers, Tengen uses a dual-wielding
swordsmanship style to utilize his Nichirin Cleavers, making use of a
nunchuck-like grip. Tengen shows off his extraordinary swordsmanship skills as
he faces off against Gyutaro, adapting to the Upper Rank's mantis-like fighting
style and going toe-to-toe with him for a prolonged period of time despite the
Upper Rank having over a century of combat experience. Tengen also demonstrated
the ability to combine his sword wielding expertise with his anti-demon bombs
in a way that made him even more dangerous, as well as the ability to wield his
Nichirin Cleavers with just one arm. While Tengen is well-known for his
traditional slashes and swings, he has also been shown to spin his blade by its
chain. This allows him to block blows and attack in retaliation with the blades
in constant rapid motion with his blades.
He also invented the Sound Breathing technique on his own. Sound
Breathing seemingly combines Tengen's heightened sense of hearing, his Musical
Score technique, his Shinobi expertise as well as his dual Nichirin
cleavers and his anti-demon bombs.
In Demon Slayer, Uzui Tengen was trained as a Shinobi before
joining the Demon Slayer Corps. In addition, Tengen was subject to extreme
training, which resulted in the death of all his siblings, except his younger
brother, who turned cold and heartless. Tengen is a skilled shinobi,
possessing great skills in explosives and weaponry, thanks to his intense
shinobi training. He was also extremely pain-tolerant and resistant to poison,
which helped him fight Gyutaro’s poison.
TENGEN UZUI DIE IN DEMON SLAYER?
You will be delighted to know that Tengen doesn’t die in the
battle with Gyutaro. In fact Tengen is one of the very few Hashiras who die far
in the future from old age. However, he does retire from the Demon Slayer Crop
right after winning the battle against Gyutaro. He gets heavily injured in the
fight and he loses one of his arms and his eye.
