About Muichiro Tokito
Muichiro Tokito being a very well-known character from the series Demon Slayer is a major supporting character from the series. Muichiro is a fellow demon slayer of Tanjiro Kamado in Demon Slayer Corps. Currently, he is ranked as Mist Hashira – one of the top-ranked combatants of the Demon Slayer Corps. His brother Yuichiro Tokito is also known as the descendent of the Upper Rank one Demon of Twelve Kizuki, Kokushibo. The most adorable feature about Muichiro is his appearance, which makes him look like an adorable innocent girl. He is a young man with relatively shorter height and has a wheatish complexion with long and straight hair. Just like any other character from Demon Slayer, Muichiro also has beautiful long hair that turns blue at the ends.
As for his personality, you can know Muchiro as an air-headed person who seems to get lost in his thought and can’t keep his mind in one place. He hardly shows any emotions and always wears that apathetic look on his face. However, he tends to get serious and concentrated when it comes to devoting himself to being a Demon Slayer. When it comes to combat, he is a very strong demon slayer being a Hashira. Muichiro is a Mist Breather and a child prodigy who was able to master the techniques only within two months of training. He is now even able to overpower much older Demon Slayers like Tanjiro Kamadro and Genya Shinazugawa.
Will Muichiro Tokito Die in Demon Slayer?
Muichirou is indeed a very important and loved character from the series but is it possible that he will die in the course of the series. Anime series are popular for killing most loved characters, and when observed, it looks quite important from the plot’s progress point of view. So, as per this statement, I reveal that Muichiro Tokito will die in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba. Now the question comes that how will he die? Who will kill Muichiro Tokito? This unfortunate event took place during Muichiro’s fight with Kokushibou. Yes, fate, or I must say the writer took both of the blood relatives against each other into a battle.
Muichirou was super strong and has been known for his unmatched skills, but the young boy doesn’t have a match with the Upper-Rank One of the Twelve Kizuki, Kokushibo. During their battle, Kokushibo being his ancestor, made an impressive remark on Muichiro’s strength as he praised their bloodline. Since Kokushibo gained fame for being hopelessly brutal on every opponent, even his own descendent, it was obvious that he wouldn’t go easy on Muichiro. Although Muchirou gave a tough competition to Kokushibo in the battle, he was overpowered by his immensely strong demonic strength and was killed when he was hit by one of Kokushibo’s attacks.
