Demon Slayer Entertainment District Arc has been a wild ride so far.

Since the inception of the series, one major confusion that the fans had is how old Nezuko Kamado is in Demon Slayer? Does she even age now?

What happened to her after being transformed into a Demon by Muzan’s blood?

If you are looking for answers to these questions, you are at the right place. Today in this article, we will discuss how Old is Nezuko in Demon Slayer?

What powers does she have? And finally, whether she even aged now after being transfused with Demon King Muzan Kibutsuji’s blood. Read on the find out more.

How old is Nezuko? and Whether she even age now? 

Nezuko’s age before she was transfused with Muzan Kibutsuji‘s blood was 12 years. And she will continue to be a 12-year-old girl as the demons don’t age at all. 

If she hadn’t been transformed into a demon by Muzan, her age in the current Entertainment District Arc chapter of Demon Slayer would have been 14. 

But after she became transfused with Muzan’s blood and turned into a demon, she initially had the urge to consume human blood because, unlike humans who get their energy from foods, Demons need to consume the human blood to get stronger.

But Nezuko didn’t want to kill any humans; hence she restricted herself from consuming any human blood and used to sleep for six months-1 years to gain her energy.

What are Nezuko’s powers? 

At the start of the Demon Slayer, Nezuko Kamado, Tanjiro’s sister, didn’t have any powers because of the reason she had restricted herself from killing any humans to consume their blood. 

So to gain energy, she had to sleep for more than one year or so, and during her battle against Daki (one of the upper demon moon 6), Nezuko awakened her blood demon art powers. 

Blood Demon Art: This is the most powerful attack from Nezuko. Using this power, Nezuko uses a particular type of pink coloured fire flames that can easily kill any demon. But there is a catch using this power too much would cost Nezuko lose her blood; hence to restore her powers, she would have to sleep. 

Immune to Sunlight: Apart from that, Nezuko also developed sunlight resistance power in the Demon Slayer manga while fighting against the upper demon moon Hantengu. 

We know that the demons get afraid of the sunlight because as soon as sunlight touches their skin, the demons die. Even Demon king Muzan Kibutsuji is also scared of the sun. 

But both Nezuko and Tanjiro’s demon forms were the only two Demons who were fully immune from the sunlight.

Regeneration ability and the ability to change her body size: 

Those who have watched the Demon Slayer Entertainment District Arc Episode 7, Nezuko vs Daki, would know that Nezuko has powerful regeneration ability. When Daki’s Obi almost cut Nezuko’s hands and legs in half during their fight in Entertainment District Arc. 

We saw Nezuko quick regeneration ability. She regenerated her hands and legs and started attacking Daki with her immense powers. Nezuko’s regeneration ability is faster and more potent than most upper demon moons

Apart from that, one of the significant advantages Nezuko has over most other demons is Nezuko can shrink and enhance her body size whenever she wants; when Hashira Shinobu Kocho tried to attack Tanjiro and her sister Nezuko, that time Nezuko quickly shrank her body to a five-year-old girl and managed to stay away from her attacks. 

Also, in the Entertainment district arc Nezuko enhanced her body precisely the size of Upper Demon Moon Daki to fight her. 

Immense Powers and Strength: 

Nezuko Kamado also has immense powers and strength; earlier in Demon Slayer anime, Nezuko blew Temple Demon’s head off who attacked Tanjiro in the temple. She did that with just one kick.

Also, in Demon Slayer Entertainment District, Arc Nezuko showcased her immense strengths when she fought against Daki
