Akaza vs. Kokushibo: Who Would Win in a Fight?

Akaza vs. Kokushibo: Who Would Win in a Fight?

Continuing with our comparisons of Demon Slayer characters, we have, once again, decided to focus on two demons. In this article, we are going to compare the powers and abilities of two members of the Twelve Kizuki, Akaza and Kokushibo, who are the Upper Ranks Three and One, respectively. This comparison is, in most cases, quite clear, as the Twelve Kizuki are ranked based on their powers and abilities, but we are still going to give you a category-by-category comparison so that you know who the stronger is and who would win in a direct clash between these two demons, Akaza or Kokushibo.

Kokushibo is undoubtedly stronger than Akaza and would defeat him in a fight. Since the Twelve Kizuki are ranked based on their powers and abilities, Kokushibo is stronger than Akaza in every aspect. That is a fact that even Akaza is aware of, which is why he wants to become much stronger so he can actually surpass Kokushibo, but only after having surpassed Doma.

Now that you have the short version of the answer, the rest of the article will be divided into several categories, as we will talk about these two characters and reveal which of them is stronger. In the end, we will give our final verdict and explain why Kokushibo is definitely stronger than Akaza.

Physical powers and fighting skills

Akaza stands out for having incredible physical strength. He has repeatedly shown his unbelievable strength, most notably when punching or kicking, which is powerful enough to send shockwaves ripping through the earth. Despite Giyu sweeping his sword downward, dismembering the head and jaw of the Second Upper Moon, Doma, with his arm, and even penetrating Kyojuro’s solar plexus, Akaza easily split Giyu’s sword in half with a single side punch.

His strength is further enhanced by his Blood Demon Art, enabling him to hit the ground and make holes in it. He was able to totally knock down several adult males in a battle with just his bare fists and legs when he was a human at the age of 11, and was later able to kill kendo experts, all before becoming a Demon. He was so powerful that Muzan believed he had already been a Demon before they met.

Kokushibo Anime

Kokushibo demonstrated great physical prowess by effortlessly raising a massive blade that was several times heavier than a typical katana and attacking with it it continuously at astounding speeds without pausing or exerting any effort. It can be assumed that Kokushibo had physical strength greater than or equivalent to higher rank three Akaza, a demon who can break the earth with his bare fists since he absorbed more blood from Muzan Kibutsuji than Akaza.

Kokushibo has developed into the second-strongest sword fighter ever, after his younger twin brother, Yoriichi Tsugikuni, after spending more than 400 years practicing and perfecting his swordsmanship techniques and considerably enhancing his physical abilities even further.

Akaza is probably the best and most skilled fighter among the Twelve Kizuki, and we have acknowledged that fact even in comparison to Doma, but when it comes down to Kokushibo, Akaza doesn’t stand any chance at all, and that is why Kokushibo wins this one easily.

Points: Akaza 0, Kokushibo 1


Strongest Twelve Kizuki (Upper Demon Moons) in Demon Slayer Ranked


Akaza is incredibly quick, as evidenced by the fact that he moved at such high speeds during his battle with Kyojuro that even Tanjiro Kamado and Inosuke Hashibira could not see him. The latter said that Akaza appeared to be in “another dimension.” He frequently demonstrated the ability to move so swiftly that it appeared as though he was teleporting, able to do so even for Tanjiro, who could feel the future. Even one of the swiftest Demon Slayers, Giyu Tomioka, was quickly surpassed in speed by Akaza despite only awakening the Demon Slayer Mark.

Kokushibo had incredible speed, probably much exceeding that of all the other Kizuki, as evidenced by the fact that he severed Akaza’s limb before the latter even understood what had happened. He often demonstrated his incredible speed. He could easily outperform Muichiro’s techniques at first, moving so quickly that it appeared as though he had teleported.

Kokushibo’s speed, according to Muichiro, was in a different dimension than his own. In spite of having his arm severed just as he arrived, Kokushibo could ” teleport” to the area where Genya was shooting him with his shotgun before the shots could reach him. He then quickly severed his second arm and body, giving the impression that he was not even moving.

Do we know how fast Kokushibo is? Well, he’s fast enough to go unnoticed by even Doma and Akaza, who are extremely fast themselves, which is why we really did not doubt the point division here.

Points: Akaza 0, Kokushibo 2


Because Akaza absorbed a significant amount of Muzan Kibutsuji’s blood, she has one of the most amazing regenerating abilities in the entire series. He can effortlessly regenerate from Tanjiro’s minor and major wounds and from Giyu and Kyojuro’s amputations of limbs. His immense regeneration was also demonstrated when he had his head cut, but he simply regrew a new one; this was, before, thought to be impossible, i.e., it was thought that only Muzan could accomplish such a feat.

Akaza surprised by his severed arm

Like other Demons, Kokushibo can heal his wounds without any trouble. Still, because he is one of the twelve Demons that make up the Twelve Demonic Moons, his healing happens considerably faster, displaying his immense power. In addition to his physical form, Kokushibo can regenerate his katana, which is forged from his flesh and blood. Similar to what happened with Akaza, his regeneration evolves to a point where he can reconstruct his head, approaching Muzan’s level of evolution.

Kokushibo managed to survive a slice by Yoriichi and a considerable beating by a group of Hashira before dying. Akaza, on the other hand, was almost killed by Kyojuro and Tanjiro. There is no doubt that Kokushibo surpasses Akaza in this category as well.

Points: Akaza 0, Kokushibo 3


Demon Slayer: Here’s Why Akaza Won’t Kill Women!

Blood Demon Art

Technique Development is a special talent that Akaza possesses. Akaza starts off by assuming a distinctive Soryu stance. There are now two different job descriptions. The first position entails bending his knees into a half-squat, extending his right arm with a half-clenched fist facing his body, and bending his left arm with an open palm. The second position is nearly identical to the first, except that he opens his palm over his right arm while fully clenching his fists in a downward bend over his left arm. Then Akaza unleashes his Destructive Death fighting style while enhancing his martial arts moves with shockwaves.

He can make and control dozens of razor-sharp blades in the typical crescent moon form from his own body thanks to his Blood Demon Art, the Crescent Moon Blades, which complements his earlier fighting style, Moon Breathing. They can be either brilliant yellow or bright blue in hue and are thought to have been formed from his blood. Kokushibo’s strikes are incredibly unpredictable and difficult to predict because these crescent moon swords constantly change in every aspect, including their shape and size. The swings of his blades are incredibly lethal and dangerous because of the Blood Demon Art, which considerably increases the effectiveness of his methods. Getting around his Blood Power is challenging because of how unstable it is.

Not only is Kokuhisbo’s technique more powerful than Akaza’s, it is also more versatile. It could easily destroy the Upper-Rank Three in direct combat, which is why Kokushibo wins this final point as well.

Points: Akaza 0, Kokushibo 4

There is no doubt that Kokushibo is more powerful than Akaza

And now for our article’s most important and interesting section – the analysis. Here, we will use what we have learned about these two characters and analyze how all these facts would (or would not) help them in a fight against each other. Let us continue.

The points have been more than clear in this aspect, and there is really not much that we have to add here. It’s not just the hierarchy – although that aspect makes it quite clear, to be honest – a simple objective evaluation of these two proves that Kokushibo is leagues above Akaza. The guy is a combination of a Demon and Demon Slayer and has some amazing skills; Akaza’s are nothing when compared to these. He is faster, stronger, and a more versatile fighter, which is a fact that Akaza was also aware of, so it makes sense that Kokushibo is stronger than Akaza.
