Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has a myriad of strange characters. One of them is Zenitsu Agatsuma. He is known to be cowardly and cowardly so that he became one of the most hated characters, not only inDemon Slayer, but in the entire anime universe.
Even so, Zenitsu also has one advantage. He is the only user of the Lightning Breath inKimetsu no Yaiba. So, he was a force to be reckoned with—while he was asleep.
Yup, Zenitsu works really well when he’s asleep. He can fight well and can quite match Inosuke and Tanjiro. In episode 6 ofKimetsu no Yaiba: Entertainment District Arc, Inosuke even wished that Zenitsu could stay asleep so he could fight properly.
Hero Characters Who Are Afraid of Death Zenitsu is actually determined to save people’s lives as a Demon Slayer. However, he is a person who changes from being cowardly and hot-tempered when he wakes up. However, once he fell asleep, he tended to finish off all the demons that were in front of him.
As a user of Lightning Breath, one of the five main Breathing Styles used by Demon Slayers, Zenitsu’s explosive technique, Lightning and Lightning, destroys demons in the blink of an eye. Interestingly, Zenitsu could only use his Lightning Breath properly while he was asleep. This was obviously very unpleasant for most Demon Slayers. But, it turns out, if there’s one thing Zenitsu can shrewdly do—besides screaming—it’s falling asleep in the middle of a fight.
The reason why Zenitsu fell asleep in the middle of a blood and death fight was simple. He was scared. Most of the demons built by Muzan Kibutsuji have terrible appearances. All of them also possessed the power known as the Blood Demon Art.
, to be honest, it makes sense that Zenitsu was terrified by their appearance. In comparison, Tanjiro and Inosuke were not at all afraid when faced with the demons. The strange thing was that it was horror that pushed him to sleep. But, in the end, in Zenitsu’s case, this was justified.
Zenitsu seems to maintain a certain level of consciousness while asleep. In fact, in the Mugen Train and Entertainment District arcs , he continued to fight in a sleepy state. He doesn’t just drop one hit like he did at the start of the series.
While he looks extremely talented as a Lightning Breath user while asleep, in reality, he can only learn his first form. That form is Lightning and Lightning. However, Zenitsu has increased the power of his technique with what he refers to as Lightning Breathing, First Form: Lightning and Lightning – Sixfold.
Zenitsu was calm and focused while sleeping. He acts with extreme precision and little flair for the dramatic. This persona is a far cry from her loud, loud screams about anything when she’s awake.
But, behind his quirky and sometimes annoying attitude, the crux of Zenitsu’s problem is that he has very low self-confidence. He knew he could not be a coward but couldn’t help it. He said no one hated him more than himself. His hatred of himself was as paralyzing as his fear of demons.
On the bright side, Zenitsu seems to be on a path to self-improvement in Demon Slayer . In the Entertainment District arc, Zenitsu had shown his overwhelming fear of demons no longer paralyzed him. He didn’t complain before the solo mission and even challenged Daki, the Top Demon 6 of 12 Kizuki. Zenitsu must continue to fall asleep to perform his Lightning Breathing Technique. But now at least he doesn’t have to be scared until he faints.
