13. Mukago

20 Strongest Female Characters in Demon Slayer Ranked

Mukago is a demon who belongs to the twelve Kizuki and holds the position of the Lower Rank Four. Despite belonging to the 12 Kizuki, it looks like Mukago has little to no loyalty towards Muzan and would rather flee for her life if it means her survival. Not much is known about the Demon, but the fact that she entered the Lower Rank Four would mean she is powerful. However, Muzan ended up killing her after he had read her thoughts about her abandoning him.

12. Suma

20 Strongest Female Characters in Demon Slayer Ranked

She is a kunoichi and one of the wives of the Demon Slayer, Tengen Uzui. While it doesn’t seem she is a particularly strong ninja, Tengen appears to have faith in her abilities, even assigning her to investigate the movements of the upper-rank demons alongside her co-wives. Suma resembles Zenitsu when it comes to acting overly emotional over simple situations.

11. Makio

20 Strongest Female Characters in Demon Slayer Ranked

Makio is one of the wives of Tengen and is also a kunoichi herself. It looks like Makio is the one who would constantly keep Suma’s emotions in check, as she is often seen berating the co-wife when Suma gets emotional. She was first seen working undercover in the Ogimoto House and fed information to Tengen via crow. However, communications stopped when Daki caught her with an Obi, and she was stored in an underground bunker.

10. Hinatsuru

20 Strongest Female Characters in Demon Slayer Ranked

Another one of the wives of Tengen, who is also a capable kunoichi. She infiltrated the Entertainment District as an Orion to expose the demons lurking around the district. She learned that the lead orion in Warabihime was actually the female Demon Daki. She was unable to make any moves to stop the Demon or inform her husband, so she drank poison in order to be removed as an Orion so she could look for her husband. However, Daki wrapped an Obi around her to restrain her if she would do anything to expose the Demon.

She was later found in a brothel by her husband and was given an antidote for the poison she took. After recovering, she assisted in the fight against Gyutaro.

9. Susumaru

20 Strongest Female Characters in Demon Slayer Ranked

While she is not a member of the 12 Kizuki, she appears as a strong demon, especially in the early portion of the series. She served as a primary antagonist of the Asakusa Arc. Before becoming a demon, she was a young girl fond of handball. Muzan turned her into a demon and implanted her with the desire to join his ranks. He also killed enemies while using her handball which caused her to have the ball as her choice of weapon.

Susumaru bears the mark of the twelve Kizuki. However, after her defeat, Tanjiro and Tamayo find out that the mark is fake. Tanjiro figured that Muzan only manipulated her into thinking she was a member of 12 Kizuki to make use of her loyalty and abilities as a disposable demon.

Susumaru is a demon who uses several Mari Balls as her choice of weapons, often launching them toward oncoming enemies. She is a decently strong demon and gave the group a hard time overcoming her.

Viewers didn’t get to hear of her story when she was alive. Sadly she passed prior to the start of the series. Kanae was a late Demon Slayer and is the biological sister of Shinobu Kocho. During her time as a Demon Slayer, she served as the first Flower Hashira. Kanae and Shinobu were taken in by Gyomei Himejima after demons slaughtered their parents.

After becoming the flower Hashira, it was Kanae who noticed Kanao being dragged by a leash by a random man. The two sisters eventually took her and adopted her as their younger sister. Kanae died because of the Demon Doma was able to wound her fatally. Before she died, she told Shinobu to leave the Demon Slayer Corps to live a normal life.

Before the series, Daki was a poor girl who was undeniably beautiful in her village. She was initially named Ume, and her older brother was responsible for raising her. She was training to be an Orion and was growing in popularity. She stabbed a samurai with chopsticks in the eye when he insulted her brother.

As punishment, her boss and the samurai had her burned alive. Her dying body was found by her older brother Gyutaro. Desperately searching for help, Gyutaro ran into the Demon Doma, who offered to save the two under the condition they become demons and work their way to the Twelve Kizuki.

After discovering her husband gambled off a dress she was supposed to wear for a performance, she killed him and rushed to the stage in a hurry with a shabby dress.

She is one of the fastest female swordsmen in the corps, even outspeeding the central trio before mastering Total Concentration: Constant. By the time the series reaches the Sunrise Countdown Arc, she is able to keep up with the Demon King Muzab Kibutsuji.

Originally Kanao was a nameless girl that the Koncho sisters bought. However, since being picked up by the two, she began her training as a Demon Slayer and eventually joined their ranks. According to Goto, because of being raised by her adoptive sisters, Kanao had been slaying demons since she was a child. She later marries Tanjiro after the series.

4. Tamayo

20 Strongest Female Characters in Demon Slayer Ranked

Tamayo is a demon created by Muzan but allied herself with the Demon Slayers to fight Muzan and put an end to him making more demons. Tamayo was the one who created the drug that was able to turn Nezuko back to being human and was also used to weaken Muzan enough to deliver fatal blows. 

Tamayo is not seen fighting, but fans can easily assume that she might be one of the strongest demons, given that she has survived as long as she did. She is a skilled doctor who even managed to alter her body in order to survive without a lot of human blood. Tamayo also teamed up with Shinobu to allow her to get her vengeance.

She managed to inject wisteria poison into Shinobu without causing the girl any sickness. This way, if Shinobu were to die and get consumed, the Demon who devoured her would also die.

She uses her swords as a way to inject Wisteria poison into demons. Shinobu was able to kill Domu by sacrificing herself to the Demon. She had Tamayo fill her body with a high concentration of Wisteria Poison since she knew Doma would eventually devour her. Her sacrifice allowed her to finally kill the Demon who killed her sister.

Her compensation is eight times denser than a normal human being. To maintain this, Misturi has to eat more than an average human as well.

Her Nichirin sword is shaped and held like a whip in order to suit her fighting style. Unfortunately, she was sadly put out of commission by the hands of Muzan.
