Demon Slayer - Kimetsu no Yaiba wouldn't be the spectacular show it is without the demons themselves. Whether they're villainous or heroic, they're often the ones driving the story forward. Even if you're a huge fan, there might be a few Demon Slayer fun facts you didn't know. 

Let's dig into some interesting Demon Slayer trivia. Did you know that demons don't need to blink? For some reason, their eyes are constantly wet, rendering blinking totally unnecesary. Also, did you know that Daki's abilities might have been inspired by a yokai called the rokurokubi? Now you do!

    Akaza Refuses To Eat Women

    Akaza has a code of personal ethics that's even more important to him than his desire for strength - he refuses to eat women. This is actually a major detriment - he would be a lot stronger if he weren't passing up so many food opportunities.

    Despite this self-imposed limit, he still manages to be one of the strongest demons around. That's probably why Muzan lets him get away with it.

    Demons don't tend to move much during the day because they're avoiding sunlight, but they don't use that time for sleep. That's because demons don't need sleep to survive.

    That being said, they are capable of sleeping, and it does provide some restorative benefits - that's why Nezuko uses it as a replacement for eating humans.

    Enmu is the primary antagonist in the Mugen Train arc and movie. Many of his fighting methods involve trapping people inside of their dreams in order to make it easier to hurt them in the real world.

    His name is a perfect reflection of these abilities. His name contains the kanji en (魘) which means "to have a nightmare" and mu (夢) which means "dream" or "vision."

    Tamayo's voice actor, Maaya Sakamoto, is married to another voice actor in the Demon Slayer cast, Kenichi Suzumura. Suzumura plays Obanai Iguro, one of the Hashira. 

    On December 27, 2021, Sakamoto announced that she and Suzumura were expecting their first child. It's difficult to imagine their respective characters doing the same thing, but if anyone wants to write the fanfic, they should go for it.

    Tamayo's exact age remains unknown, but we know that she has to be at least 500 years old.

    How do we know? Because she was seen living during the same time period as Yoriichi Tsugikuni. She became a demon shortly before that time.

    Muzan Kibutsuji was born during the Heian period - that is, during the 900s. This is also when he became a demon. During this period, he married five different human women.

    Because of his extreme verbal abuse, all five of them took their own lives. Clearly, he's not that great at the whole relationship thing.
