Ever since the first season, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has been breaking records over records! The Demon Slayer Movie: Mugen Train has also left a big impact on the audience. The movie was premiered on October 16, 2020, and late 2020 to mid-2021 internationally. Just when fans were charmed by Rengoku, he was taken away from us. Many were sad enough to fill a bucket of tears, myself included, but Inosuke got a grip of us! His last words were cruel as well as a miracle.
Rather than cruel, it was more practical. And Inouske has always been that way. Did you know that the boar head which Inosuke always wears is actually his mother’s? The mother who gave birth to him or the mother boar who raised him? Obviously, the latter! So, this very article is dedicated to the boar-headed boy, Inosuke Hashibira, as we see if he will die in Demon Slayer.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a manga-based anime written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotōge. The manga has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump since February 15, 2016, and is republished in English by Viz Media. The Manga series ended on May 18, 2020, with a total of 205 chapters. As Kimetsu no Yaiba is set in the Taisho era, Japan, it is about human-eating demons who roam about the human land during the night.
Besides being a short-tempered and proud young man, who likes to think that he is the strongest, Inosuke is actually a young boy with a feminine face, whose face is hidden under the boar-headed mask. Inosuke always tries to challenge those he comes across with. He even challenged Tanjiro for a duel but completely failed because of Tanjiro’s oblivious kind nature. Inosuke wants to be recognized as the strongest and wants people to respect and praise him.
His animal instincts are super strong. It is believed that he was raised by boars, and it is also believed, by Inosuke himself, that a boar gave birth to him! (See, the same proud and short-tempered young man to have such a ridiculous cute side!) Apart from Inosuke’s overall abilities, where he was able to master his own Breathing style – Beast Breathing and uses them in fights. He also has extrasensory perception, i.e., his senses are honed to such lengths that he can detect things outside the normal range of perception. Inosuke once tried to kill Nezuko because he could sense the demon’s smell from her.
The boar-headed boy is a package of abilities. He is flexible, has enhanced touch and strength, has immense speed and reflexes, and stamina and endurance, possesses an incredible will and spirit. Finally, he is even poison-resistant.

Will Inosuke Hashibira die in Demon Slayer?
Inosuke Hashubira may be fatally injured, but he never dies. Nor will he die. For non-manga readers, this will be a spoiler, a good one, though, but it never happens. Inosuke Hashibira dying, that is.
In the movie: Mugen Train, Inosuke shows great mobility, physique, and even the Lower Rank 1 demon, Enmu, failed to make him sleep, thanks to his mother’s boar-head! Demon Slayer: Entertainment arc’s latest episode shows at the end how Inosuke stares up the room above his floor as he feels something’s off (I smell trouble!). Even in the manga, there are instances where he was gravely injured, but that never came down to his ending!

Inosuke as a Demon Slayer
Inosuke, despite his young age, is a skilled swordsman and is able to destroy his opponents with his above-mentioned abilities. His Breathing Styles are all inspired by his origin, mountains, and boars. His Nichirin katanas have defeated demons on various occasions. In the Infinity Castle arc, Manga chapters from 137 to183, he has polished his skills and can be considered an equal to that of a Hashira. In the Hashira Training arc, Manga chapters 128-136, he managed to move a boulder twice his size with only his bare hands!
In the first season, Inosuke is seen to be optimistic, or rather an energetic one, who rarely remembers anyone’s name. He would usually call Tanjiro Gonpichirō, Kentaro, Monjiro, Santaro, Soichiro, referring to Zenitsu as Monitsu, Chuitsu, and even Nezuko as Pyonko, in his dream in Mugen Train. He surely is an oddball, isn’t he? But even so, he cares for his close ones. Whenever someone, who he cared for, would get hurt or injured, he would rush out to kill the responsible b*****d! Such instances happened in the Manga when Doma killed Shinobu. Doma was also the one who killed his mother. Inosuke was truly angered and attacked immediately.
