Demon Slayer: Why does Muzan hate Doma?

Demon Slayer’s Muzan Kibutsuji actually likes a handful of his demons, but surprisingly, Upper-Rank Two isn’t one of them.

WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga, available in English via Viz Media.

Despite being the Progenitor of Demons in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no YaibaMuzan Kibutsuji generally has little more than disdain for his creations. He has some favorites among the Kizuki, such as Rui (Lower Five), Gyutaro (Upper Six), and Akaza (Upper Three), but perhaps surprisingly, an official Murderer of demons The “fan book” written by manga creator Koyoharu Gotouge revealed that top rank two Doma is a demon that Muzan really doesn’t like. As lower ranks six, four, three, and two can attest, Muzan is not averse to taking out demons he’s not happy with, even if they’re Kizuki. So how did a demon that is not favored by Muzan become top rank two, and why doesn’t Kibutsuji kill him anyway?

Doma, also known as Akaza’s bane of existence, makes enemies wherever he goes despite being by far the kindest and most polite of all demons. In Akaza’s case, his hatred for the Upper Two stems from the fact that Akaza is a founding member of the Kizuki, while Doma joined much later, but quickly surpassed Akaza in both power and rank. Higher rank one Kokushibo treats Doma like a subordinate who needs to be lectured, and Nakime abruptly declined Doma’s offer for a romantic date. It could really be as simple as the fact that Muzan doesn’t like Doma because he finds it just as annoying as everyone else.

When Muzan gathered the upper ranks after Gyutaro’s death, he angrily asked why none of them had eliminated the Demon Slayer Corps or located the Blue Spider Lily. While Doma offered to gouge out his eye in regret for recruiting Gyutaro, he also admitted that he never found Blue Spider Lily or Ubuyashiki because he is not good at detective work. Surprisingly incompetent to be the third most powerful demon in the world behind only Muzan and Kokushibo, Doma couldn’t even make it through the first meeting of the upper ranks in 113 years without pestering Akaza to hit parts of Doma’s head, twice. .

Muzan Kibutsuji certainly seems like the kind of man who would kill someone for the high crime of being really annoying. Strangely, though, Doma is free to do as he pleases: run his house of worship called the Eternal Paradise Faith, in which he eats his followers so they can live forever as part of him. Doma’s penchant for eating women may play a part in why he became so powerful so quickly, as he once commented that women are more nourishing to demons thanks to their ability to nurture babies with their bodies. . Doma’s power as Kizuki’s top rank two of the twelve is probably what keeps him safe from Muzan’s murderous roving eye.

At the end of the manga’s “Swordsmith Village” arc, Muzan revealed that he never wanted to create other demons in the first place. The only reason he did it was in the hope that a demon would become powerful enough to resist sunlight. If Muzan were to consume such a demon, he would gain the power for himself and achieve his dream of becoming the perfect being. The most likely reason Muzan never killed Doma is that he couldn’t risk losing such a powerful demon. Muzan probably believed it possible that one day, Doma could become strong enough to survive in the sunlight, so killing him might have been detrimental to the reason Muzan turned him into a demon in the first place.

When Muzan killed most of the lower ranks, he probably did so with such confidence that none of them could be powerful enough to withstand the sunlight. Doma, on the other hand, had too much potential to justify killing him just to get him to stop talking. Once Nezuko Kamado became immune to sunlight, Doma surely stood by for the inevitable conflict with the Demon Slayer Corps, in which Doma succeeded where even Akaza failed by killing one of the Hashira, Shinobu Kocho. At the end of the day, Doma’s potential outweighed her annoying personality, if only slightly.
