In this blog post, we are going to cover the topic “Who Is Akaza” also “How strong he is?”. So without wasting any time let’s talk about Akaza in detail below.


Who Is Akaza ?


Akaza is a member of the Twelve Demon Moons, Upper Moon Three, and used to be known as Hakuji when he was human in the Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) series. The Demon form of Akaza is very muscular and very slim, with very pale skin. 

In human form, instead of pink, his hair was black with pale blue eyes and he wore a dark blue yukata. He had three thick black lines on each forearm, which indicated that he was a criminal. His full name is Akaza Naoyasu, with a height of 5’8″ / 173 cm, age is 18.

He is in upper rank 3. Akaza is one of the 12 Kizuki, the strongest demons who serve directly under Muzan Kibutsuji in Demon Slayer. He is Upper Rank 3, making him particularly powerful. The Upper Ranks went 100 years without being killed by a Hashira while killing a large number of Hashira themselves.


How Strong Is Akaza?


Akaza is a strong, stubborn, and battle-crazed Social Darwinist who enjoys combat, especially against strong Demon Slayers. He drew out fights to relish every moment of them, complimenting his opponents when they used strong techniques or landed blows on him, usually remarking that their skills and swordsmanship were magnificent.

Akaza hated anyone he deemed weak, so much so that it made his skin crawl just looking at them. Although he had genuine respect and admiration for those that were strong, he demanded to know their names, and he wouldn’t stop until he found out; he remembers all the names committed to memory as a tribute to their courage.


Akaza Powers And Abilities:

As the holder of the third-highest position in the Twelve Kizuki, Akaza is an extremely powerful demon, having been able to defeat Kyojuro Rengoku and numerous Hashira, as well as countless Demon Slayers in the past.

Akaza possesses incredible abilities and attributes, most notably his martial arts prowess, which can outmatch the swordsmanship of even the most skilled Demon Slayers, and his ability to sense Fighting Spirit which allows him to predict his opponent’s attacks and discern their weaknesses, making him nigh-unbeatable if they are unable to create a countermeasure against this ability

Extrasensory Perception –  

Akaza possesses supernaturally honed sensory abilities able to sense things outside the normal range of perception. His extrasensory perception ability can physically manifest as his Compass Needle technique. On top of being able to sense the auras of demons and humans, he can also tell how strong or weak an individual is just by looking at them

Flesh Manipulation –

Like all demons, Akaza possesses the ability to control and alter his own flesh to a certain extent. He briefly displayed this ability when trying to escape Kyojuro’s death grip by consciously detaching both his arms and later regrowing them.

Immense Durability –

As an Upper-Rank demon, Akaza’s body is exceedingly durable as he harbors an extremely high concentration of Muzan‘s blood. During his fight with Kyojuro, the Hashira had trouble cutting various parts of his body despite using a katana and possessing superhuman physical strength, showcasing Akaza’s immense durability.

Immense Regeneration –

Akaza possesses one of the most incredible regenerative abilities in the series due to assimilating a massive amount of Muzan‘s blood, which he displayed constantly. He was capable of instantly recovering from slash wounds both minor and severe and even limbs slashed off by his opponents with little effort.

Speed & Reflexes –

Akaza has extremely fast reflexes that he showed during his fight against Kyojuro where he moved at such a speed that Tanjiro and Inosuke couldn’t detect his blisteringly fast movements, the latter even remarking that he was in “a different dimension”.


Akaza Blood Demon Art


Death’s Destructive Art – Akaza’s Blood Demon Art is a martial arts style where he combines shockwave-like attacks with the Soryu Style he mastered when he was human. The shockwaves that Akaza manipulates are blue in color and can take many forms, such as nigh-invisible air pressure, flowing streams, or cannon-shaped spikes.

He can generate them at any distance and from anywhere in his body. In combat, Akaza uses his shockwaves to amplify the destructive capabilities of his punches and kicks, making his attacks glow faintly blue.



Who turned Akaza into a demon?

Hakuji, with nothing left to protect and having lost his will to live, accepts and becomes the demon Akaza. After becoming a demon, he lost his memories of the time he became a human, with only one single desire to become stronger despite not knowing the reason why he wanted to become strong.

What kind of demon is Akaza?

Akaza is a strong, stubborn, and impulsive Demon who enjoyed fighting, especially strong Demon Slayers. He looked down on anybody he deemed weak, but genuinely respected those who were strong in his eyes, regardless of their race.

What is written in Akaza’s eyes?

Akaza has short pink hair and yellow eyes with a blue-colored sclera, the kanji for Upper Moon Three written onto his irises.
