Genya Shinazugawa's hair color is Black, but it turns Black vĩ đại yellow after consuming demons.


At the time of his debut during the Final Selection, Genya was a short, young man with large, inward-slanting eyes.

His hair is styled into a buzz cut, with only a small clump of messy Black hair left vĩ đại grow on the top of his head.

Genya refusing Tanjiro's offer for a rice cracker.

Genya was initially a foul-mouthed and ill-tempered individual; a "lone wolf" who refused any help from others and did not show any interest in being polite or having any manners. During Final Selection, he roughly handled Kanata Ubuyashiki by grabbing her hair and yelling at her due vĩ đại his impatience. His ill temper and brash way of speaking heavily resembles that of his older brother, Sanemi.

He became more open vĩ đại cooperation during the battle against Hantengu, an Upper Rank, where he worked alongside Tanjiro Kamado, Mitsuri Kanroji, and Nezuko Kamado. After some time, he learned vĩ đại become more sociable and less ill-mannered towards others, particularly towards Tanjiro and his friends.

Genya also appears vĩ đại be very confident in battle, telling Aizetsu vĩ đại focus on him despite the latter already having stabbed Genya with his Yari, and later announced his name vĩ đại the demon and declared that he is the one who will kill him.

As a child, Genya was caring and loving towards his family, looking out for them due vĩ đại their father's abuse and being the second oldest of his siblings. His protective attitude stems from a promise he had made with Sanemi following their father's death, when he stated that it was now their job vĩ đại be a role model for their siblings and look after their mother. He was deeply regretful of his inability vĩ đại save his brothers and sisters following their mother's transformation and blamed himself heavily for his own accusation of Sanemi killing her, despite acknowledging later that he was not at fault and she transformed into an uncontrollable demon.

Sanemi's refusal vĩ đại acknowledge Genya made him insecure as he came vĩ đại realize just how weak he is compared vĩ đại his companions. Nonetheless, he did whatever he could vĩ đại help his allies, even if it got him horribly maimed in the process. Despite his brother's harsh rebukes, he bore no ill will towards him, a belief reinforced by Tanjiro and eventually by Sanemi himself.


Overall Abilities[]

As one of the five that survived Final Selection, Genya possesses a relatively strong foundation as a Demon Slayer even without utilizing a Breathing Style. His skills were exemplified in the battle against Hantengu, the fourth strongest Upper Rank, when he snuck up on two of his clones and successfully shot two of them and proceeded vĩ đại decapitate them. When he consumed the flesh of Aizetsu, Genya managed vĩ đại overpower the Upper Rank, stabbing Aizetsu into a tree with his own Yari and ripping off his head. When Mitsuri Kanroji, the Love Hashira, was nearly struck and killed by Zohakuten, Genya, along with Tanjiro Kamado and Nezuko Kamado, managed vĩ đại save her before the attack connected. After gaining power from Zohakuten, Genya became strong enough vĩ đại pick up and fling a gigantic tree without much effort, surprising the likes of Tanjiro and Nezuko, and then proceeded vĩ đại throw 3 more. Genya was also capable of ripping both of Urami's arms off.

Against Kokushibo, the strongest Upper Rank, Genya consumed his hair and a chunk of his flesh katana, gaining enough strength vĩ đại develop his own Blood Demon Art which played a pivotal role in the defeat of the Upper Rank.
