Last Updated on May 22, 2022 by Joydeep Ghosh

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Season 2 Entertainment District arc will introduce us to the most flamboyant swordsman in the Demon Slayer Corps, the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui.

We got to see the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui only twice until now, and that too for a minute or so in the first season of Demon Slayer. 

In the Entertainment District Arc of Demon Slayer Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu, along with Nezuko, will accompany Tengen Uzui in the mission.

Here is everything you need to know about the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui.

Who is the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui?

Tengen Uzui, one of the Hashira’s, is among the strongest swordsmen in the demon slayer corps.

His true strength will be revealed in the Entertainment District Arc and trust us you will be amazed to see his skills.

Tengen is the master of Sound Breathing, which develops the Thunder Breathing Technique used by Zenitsu and his master, a former Hashira.

Tengen’s sound breathing is something to be reckoned with as it is a unique breathing technique.

Like Inosuke, he too fights with two swords and is very skilled in using both of them.

Tengen’s personality is also unique and exciting. He has an obsession with anything glamorous and flamboyant.

He regards himself as one of the most flamboyant people to live and tries to do everything flamboyantly.

Tengen’s interaction with Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenistu will be ironic as they all have different personalities.

The more interesting question is, “Will Tengen accept Nezuko as a fellow demon slayer?” Will he allow Nezuko, a demon, to accompany them?

Will Tengen accept the master’s and Renoguk’s decision to consider Nezuko as a demon slayer member despite being a demon?

In the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Season 2 Entertainment District Arc., let’s find out.

Tengen Uzui recognizes Tanjiro Kamado as he is the only person who had found and fought the Demon King Muzan Kibutsuji.

Tanjiro also headbutted Sanemi, a Hashira who attacked Nezuko, and Tanjiro went against him to save his sister.

What will happen if another upper moon demon shows up to attack Tanjiro when he is accompanying Tengen?

Will we witness another awestruck battle between a Hashira and an Upper Demon Moon? Who do you think will win?

With so much excitement about the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui, it is hard to wait to see him in action.

Let us know more about his past and how he became a member of the demon slayer corps and eventually a Hashira.

What is the Backstory of the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui?

Tengen Uzui was a Shinobi before becoming a demon slayer.

He hated the Shinobi ideals, where a mission was given more priority over the lives of Shinobi undertaking them.

For the same reason, he left his clan and became a demon slayer to protect innocent lives from demons.

Tengen’s father had put him and his siblings through harsh training and had them kill each other.

Tengen had killed 7 of his siblings before realizing what he was doing.

His father considered it right as strong ones should survive, but this very thought of taking innocent lives made Tengen despise his father and his clan.

He left it along with his wives and became Demon Slayer to protect people from demons.

Tengen Uzui has the most unique and flashy personality.

He is tall and muscular, but most of all wear flashy gemstones and colours around his body.

His presence is intimidating, and no one would want to go against him.

Tengen hates demons when Tanjiro and Nezuko are captured and brought to the Hashira headquarters.

He was the first to say that he would gladly execute Nezuko and Tanjiro by slicing off their necks in the most flamboyant way.

How many wives does Tengen Uzui have?

As harsh and tough he might seem, he is very caring. In Demon Slayer Tengen Uzui has three wives, Makio, Suma, and Hinatsuru.

He deeply cares for them and is always protective of them.

In his clan, polygamy is followed, and the clan leader chooses the bride as the boy reaches 15 years of age but even after this, Tengen treasures his wives.

He has trained them in the same Shinobi way of life to protect themselves if the need arises.

He even sends them on small recon missions to gather information, but if he senses the slightest danger, he brings them back and would leave anything to protect them.

By the end of the Entertainment District Arc, Tengen Uzui expresses his trust towards Tanjiro and even says that as long as Tanjiro is around, he can leave to protect anyone without hesitation.

In the beginning, he might have been hard on the trio, but he indeed cares a lot for his comrades.

How strong is Tengen Uzui in Demon Slayer?

Tengen Uzui is definitely amongst the most remarkable swordsmen in the Demon Slayer Corps. Also, he is not a Hashira for nothing.

Only Tengen and Inosuke are the two demon slayers known to fight using two swords.

Not only his skills with the sword but Tengen’s physical abilities are way beyond that of ordinary human beings.

Being a Shinobi also adds to the account as he has immense strength and stamina.

His hearing is also very sharp, and he uses it in combination with Sound Breathing to a deadly effect.

Tengen is considered to be the fastest, even among the Hashiras.

Tengen is also resistant to poison as he could endure the effects of Gyutaro’s poison, which could instantly kill any human.

His strength can be known by the simple fact that he could defeat Upper Demon Moon Six while protecting everyone else.

He is a true Shinobi in skill and technique. He can inflict maximum damage to his opponents while keeping the damage to his surroundings bare minimum.

Tengen used Sound Breathing, a derived form of Thunder Breathing, the same as used by Zenitsu.

Tengen can use his hearing ability to locate enemies and friends over a large area.

He can pinpoint their location and action from the sound waves bouncing against their bodies.

He can also hear underground sounds of all kinds and tactics the enemy is playing. His ability is known as Echolocation.

With this technique, he uses his super-hearing ability to its maximum. Combined with Sound Breathing, he is powerful.

It will be amazing to watch Tengen Uzui in action in the Entertainment District Arc of the Demon Slayer Season 2.

His strength and personality are unique in their way. He also recognizes and respects Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira.

When he heard that the Upper Demon Moon Three Akaza defeated Rengoku, he was shocked that even Rengoku couldn’t beat an Upper Demon Moon.

He swore to kill the Demon and avenge his death.

Tengen eventually fought the Upper Demon Moon Six, but this would be his last fight as a Demon Slayer.

The Former Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, retries due to losing an arm and left eye in the battle against the Upper Demon Moon Six.

Does Tengen Uzui die in Demon Slayer?

Tengen Uzui is the only known member of the Demon Slayer Corps and the only Hashira who had retired due to permanent disability.

All other Hashira’s have died in battle or retired due to old age.

Tengen Uzui fights bravely against the Upper Demon Moon Six in the Entertainment District Arc.

He protects all of his comrades but loses his left eye and an arm in the battle.

He chose to retire as he could no longer fight with his two swords and was incapable of fighting against Upper Demon Moons due to losing eyesight.

Tengen thus retires as a Hashira but still supports the Demon Slayers as an advisor.

After the Entertainment District Arc, he believes and trusts Tanjiro Kamado, Inosuke, and Zenitsu.

He, too, accepts Nezuko as a fellow Demon Slayer like Kyojuro Rengoku.

He doesn’t have any children, but he is determined to be a father figure for the trio and have their backs.

This is a transition in his behaviour from when he met the three at the Entertainment District.

This is all you need to know about the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui. But words are not enough to describe his flamboyant spirit.

So check out the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Season 2 Entertainment District Arc to see the Flamboyant Hashira in action.
