4. Daki (Upper Moon Six)

Nestled uncomfortably at the number 4 spot is none other than Daki, Gyutaro's sister, and the other half of the Upper Moon Six duo - the other rent-free resident of my memories.

Now, why does Daki earn the ire of fans far and wide, you might wonder? It's not just because she has a fashion sense that's a little too avant-garde for most (though let's be honest, that obi belt could probably strangle a mountain ox) - it's her cocktail of cruelty and arrogance that really sets people's teeth on edge.

She struts around with a superiority complex that could eclipse the sun, treating humans as nothing more than disposable playthings. And let's not forget her penchant for wrapping up her victims like leftovers with her deadly sash. Not exactly the neighbor you'd borrow sugar from, unless you fancy being turned into a human pretzel.

But here's where a twinge of sympathy hits us square in the face: tucked beneath her cold exterior and brutal ways is a tragic tale that's as old as time, or at least as old as the Taisho era they're all romping around in. Daki and her brother Gyutaro share a backstory that could make even the coldest hearts thaw just a tad. Their bond reveals a vulnerability in Daki that's hard to ignore, showing us a glimpse of the human she once was. It's this complex layering of character - a mix of vile deeds and a pinch of tragic backstory that saves her from being the ultimate villain in the eyes of fans.

She's not just a demon; she's a demon with a story, a past, and a reason for her madness, making us hate her a tad less and maybe, just maybe, understand her a smidge more. So, while she's definitely not winning any popularity contests, she's also not the most detested demon to ever grace the pages or scenes of Demon Slayer.

And that, my friends, is why Daki dances delicately at number 4 on our list.
