Who killed Gyutaro?
The battle we are talking about here happened during the Entertainment District Arc, when Daki and Gyutaro faced a team of your Demon Slayers and Nezuko. Tanjiro, Inosuke, Zenitsu, and Tengen Uzui participated in the battle on the side of the Demon Slayers. After a prelude battle between Tanjiro, Nezuko and Daki, after which Tanjiro and Tengen faced Gyutaro. It was ultimately Tanjiro who decapitated Gyutaro, although Tengen did a lot of the work; this allowed for the successful decapitation of Daki, as she could not be killed while Gyutaro was alive.
How did Tanjiro kill Gyutaro?
After Tanjiro’s and Nezuko’s fight against Daki, the battle in the Entertainment District escalated as Daki revealed Gyutaro within her. This prompted the intervention of the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, and the battle against the demonic siblings was split into two, with Tanjiro and Tengen facing off against Gyutaro, and Zenitsu and Inosuke going after Daki.
At one point, during the battle, Tengen gets badly poisoned by Gyutaro, but despite being severely poisoned and missing his left hand, Tengen takes up the fight with Gyutaro, saying that he has perfected the note technique. It turns out that his technique allows him to analyze his opponents’ maneuvers and read them like notes on a sheet of music. However, the poison has affected his ability to attack, so he can only deflect Gyutaro’s attacks.
Gyutaro manages to hit Tengen with a powerful attack to the left side of his face, losing his left eye, and then stabs Tengen. Tanjiro yells to Tengen after seeing him get stabbed, but Tengen orders him to ignore him and jump. Tanjiro leaps into the air toward Gyutaro and attempts to decapitate him, but is seemingly stabbed through the jaw by Gyutaro’s sickle. The demon panics as they gain the upper hand and pulses his poison to kill Tanjiro. But he endures the pain and swings his blade at Gyutaro.
It turns out that the demon siblings were able to keep the demon slayers at bay by using a hidden ability. During the fight, Gyutaro controlled his sister and was able to see through her vision, giving them an advantage. His poison also severely affected the demon slayers, but there was always one member of the team that slipped through and allowed them to continue the fight.
Tanjiro is seen swinging his blade at Gyutaro’s neck, even though the demon’s sickle pierces his jaw. His arm strength is not enough to cut through the neck, so he forces his whole body to push through, ignoring the pain. Gyutaro notices the change in Tanjiro’s scar as he develops a demon slayer mark and his eyes roll back in his head. The change in his demeanor proves too much as Tanjiro’s blade slices through Gyutaro’s neck, sending him into a panic.
Why did Tanjiro kill Gyutaro?
Gyutaro was one of the Twelve Kizuki and one of the most powerful demons. Since the Twelve Kizuki had direct orders from Muzan to eliminate Tanjiro and Nezuko, it is only natural that Tanjiro wanted to kill Gyutaro. On top of that, Tanjiro was a Demon Slayer so it was his duty, regardless of anything else, to kill Gyutaro.
Who killed Daki?
This battle was a follow-up of the battle between Tanjiro, Nezuko and Daki. While Tanjiro and Tengen Uzui faced Gyutaro, Zenitsu and Inosuke went on to fight Daki. Although Daki was significantly weaker than Gyutaro, she couldn’t be killed while Gyutaro was alive. It wasn’t until Tanjiro successfully decapitated Gyutaro that Zenitsu and Inosuke managed to decapitate Daki during their fight.
How did Zenitsu and Inosuke kill Daki?
As we have said, while Tanjiro and Tengen fought Gyutaro, Daki was fighting Inosuke and Zenitsu. At one point, Daki begins to collapse under the pressure as Inosuke approaches her, and manages to draw his two blades on either side of her neck. Inosuke buries his heels in the ground as he uses the Beast Breathing, Sixth Fang: Palisade Bite to effectively decapitate Daki.
Tanjiro smiles with delight as he sees Inosuke jump and catch Daki’s head in mid-air, rejoicing that he has successfully cut off her head. Inosuke says that they must act quickly to separate the head from her body. After they successfully decapitate Daki, Inosuke is seen fleeing with her head to prevent her from reconnecting it to her body.
He tells the other boys not to worry about him and to help Tengen instead, but before he can get to safety, Daki uses her hair to fight back. He manages to break their resistance, but before he can escape, Gyutaro appears behind him and impales him in the chest. Tanjiro watches in horror as Gyutaro grabs Daki’s head while Inosuke collapses on the roof.
As Tanjiro tries to decapitate Gyutaro after landing a surprise attack on him, Daki can be seen getting up in the face of the sudden turn of events and trying to help her brother, but before she can approach them, Zenitsu manages to break free from the rubble. He attacks them by using Thunder Breathing, First Form: Thunderclap and Flash to draw her attention, and then uses his Godspeed extension to quickly attack her neck. Zenitsu asks his blade to cut her neck, as he had the chance to escape from the rubble and attack her while Gyutaro was overwhelmed.
While Tanjiro and Tengen fight Gyutaro off and try to decapitate him, Daki can be seen resisting Zenitsu’s attempt to decapitate her. She attempts to kill Zenitsu with her obi at close range, but Inosuke unexpectedly rushes over and reveals that he has protected his heart from being stabbed by rearranging his organs.
He also reveals that poison has no effect on him, having grown up in the mountains before helping Zenitsu decapitate Daki. The three boys roar as they muster the strength to cut the demons’ necks. After the long fight, Zenitsu and Inosuke manage to decapitate Daki on the roof, while Tanjiro simultaneously decapitates Gyutaro on the ground.
Her decapitated head then fell to the ground, facing the head of Gyutaro. As their heads began to disintegrate, Daki screamed at her brother, blaming him for their defeat.
Why did Zenitsu and Inosuke kill Daki?
Daki was one of the Twelve Kizuki and although she herself wasn’t as powerful, her connection with Gyutaro made her a formidable foe. Since the Twelve Kizuki had direct orders from Muzan to eliminate the Demon Slayers, it is only natural that Zenitsu and Inosuke wanted to kill Daki. On top of that, both Zenitsu and Inosuke were Demon Slayers so it was their duty, regardless of anything else, to kill Daki.
