Muzan also was capable of possessing other beings and easily getting them to pass their will. The final form of his was seen producing the whip-like structure from all of the body parts, and it was able to shake waves.

Sanemi Shinazugawa

This character within the anime can be seen acting best within the situation, no matter where he was put in. He always managed to survive. He even survived the moon breathing attack, which was at the 1st sight even when Muichiro Tokito (mist pillar) got deeply wounded. Even during the battle with Muzan, Sanemi (wind pillar) was seen quickly figuring out conditions for activation of the Red Nichirin blade and then transformed the sword he had to the red blade. Well, for sure, Sanemi’s abilities, they are the highest amidst the pillars, and this makes him one of the strongest demon slayer characters

Obanai Iguro (the 2nd weakest Hashira)

Shinobu, he is referred to as the weakest hashira but obanai, he is the 2nd weakest, but the best is that he was able to activate his demon slayer mark (Shinobu was not able to). It is what allowed him to get at the peak of the performance during the fight and win even when he wasn’t able to use his lost vision. He is seen relying upon his snake named Kaburamaru. The snake used to tell him all about what he needed to know in regards to the surroundings.

Kokushibo (Twelve Kizuki- Upper rank 1)

Muichiro Tokito

He is seen lost within his thoughts always, but even after this, his dedication as the demon slayer, it was most powerful of all. He is the mist pillar which can be seen utilizing the breath of the mist style (derived from the breath of wind style). Well, he did master his breathing system to such an extent that he was able to use it during the fight to make it easy and to overwhelm the demon of the upper moon and also for the creation of the totally new form of breath style. Muichiro even unlocked the demon slayer mark, which provided him much more strength for killing the upper moon demon with ease. 


He was the upper rank 2 demon. He was living a double life as a cult leader, and this cult was used for getting access to many of the human bodies, which were contributing towards the strength of him. Also, he had a very high tolerance for the pain and his sadistic tendencies; it is what caused his downfall.
