5. Nakime – Upper 4

Nakime replaced Hantengu as Upper 4, controlling dimensions and teleporting at will. Her elusive nature made it nearly impossible to locate her, while her ability to transport individuals put everyone on high alert. Despite her combat abilities being less aggressive, her potential to send opponents into dangerous territories was a constant threat.

And it’s been a huge inconvenience as well, getting teleported and disoriented over and over again.

4. Hantengu – Upper 4

At first glance, Hantengu’s appointment as Upper 4 may seem baffling. However, his emotional manifestation abilities proved him to be a challenging adversary. His cowardice, far from being a weakness, fueled his strength, with his hatred striking out at opponents whenever they exploited his vulnerabilities. So far, we’ve seen the emotions of anger, pleasure, sorrow, joy, hatred, and resentment being manipulated by him, and he also has the Kanji for “Fear” etched on his tongue.

Demon or not, that had to hurt.

He does get replaced by Nakime eventually.

3. Akaza – Upper 3

Martial arts master Akaza emerged as one of the most dangerous opponents within Demon Slayer. Winning a duel against the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku (rest in peace, you absolute KING), and boasting about killing another Hashira, Akaza’s deadly combat skills sent shivers down the spines of viewers, making his presence a game-changer.

He does have the ability to annoy you to death as well.
