Muzan Kibutsuji is the main antagonist of the Demon Slayer anime by Koyoharu Gotouge.

Muzan is responsible for creating countless demons and taking countless lives to achieve a specific goal.

Muzan Kibutsuji is also known as the ” King of Demons. “

The main question here is Why did Muzan turn Nezuko into a Demon?

Before answering this question, let us look at a few facts being the reason for Muzan to create an Army of Demons.

Muzan’s ultimate goal is to be the most powerful being/demon to exist and be able to walk into the sunlight.

Walking into sunlight is the only inability that the demons have.

Muzan wants to overcome this ability as he cannot walk in the daylight, which harms him as well as all the demons.

How did Muzan Turn Nezuko Into a Demon: How can a human being be turned into a Demon? 

The answer to the question took over 200 years for Lady Tamayo to figure out and turn a single Human into a Demon. 

Lady Tamayo died on her quest to find the answers related to Demons.

Along with being a demon Lady Tamayo is also a doctor who helps people.

Demons need human blood and flesh to survive and grow stronger. 

Lady Tamayo is a good Demon who consumes blood from blood banks to stay alive, and she is also a who can use Blood Demon Art.

Lady Tamayo once used her Blood Demon Art to save Tanjiro.

Her Blood Demon art is Scent Of Illusory Blood: Visual Dream.

Lady Tamayo also has some connection to the Master of the Demon Slayer Mansion.

The Master of the Demon Slayer Mansion once mentioned Lady Tamayo to Tanjiro, saying Give my regards to Lady Tamayo. 

Lady Tamayo collects blood samples of many demons to examine the blood and find a solution to create a Demon back into a human.

Muzan Kibutsuji is the only one who can turn Humans into Demons apart from Lady Tamayo.

Lady Tamayo is also a Demon created by Muzan.

Muzan can turn Humans into demons in just a matter of a few seconds.

He just needs to scratch a human and give a tiny amount of his blood to one he turns into a demon.

Muzan might have streamed his blood into Nezuko, which eventually led to Nezuko turning into a demon.

Even Giyu Tomiyoka was surprised to see that Nezuko was trying to save Tanjiro even in her transformation phase.

And that is the reason, Tomiyoka decided to let Nezuka go without harming her and sent her to Uro Kodaki( A former Hashira).

Why did Muzan turn Nezuko into a Demon in Demon Slayer?

This can be an incident that Muzan killed all the members of the Kamado Family and found the determination of Nezuko to save her younger siblings. 

Due to this trait of not giving up, Muzan decided to turn Nezuko into a Demon who would eventually grow into a stronger Demon. 

Muzan decided to kill all the users of the sun breathing and also the people who knew about the Sun Breathing ( the most powerful breathing of all) as he was defeated by Yoricchi.

Yorichhi is the creator of the Sun Breathing.

All the other breathings ate weak imitations of the sun breathing, Sun breathing being at the top of the hierarchy.

The different breathing techniques are derived from the Sun breathing Technique, as Sun Breathing is the hardest to master.

Muzan killed all the members who practised the Sun Breathing technique with the help of Kokushibo.

Kamado Family uses the Sun Breathing when doing their traditional Dance using Hinokami Kagura.

So Muzan might have got news about a Family who had the knowledge about Sun Breathing. 

And Eventually, Muzan decided to find them and kill them all.

He must have found something in Nezuko and turned her into a Demon.

Nezuko is the only Demon who has not consumed a single ounce of human flesh and blood.

Nezuko sleeps a lot to recover her body.

Nezuko was in a deep sleep for six months, and during this time, her body might have undergone some changes that no one could understand.

Tanjiro is trying his best to get the answer to the question Is there a way to turn a demon into a human again.

Tanjiro once asked lady Tamayo Is there a way to turn a demon into a human again.

Lady Tamayo answered there is a way.

Tanjiro was excited to know about this. 

But then Lady Tamayo’s words to Tanjiro were:

“There is always some kind of medicine or aid no matter the wound or ailment.

I don’t know how to turn back a demon into a human yet, but there must be a way.

And I promise we are going to find it. We are dedicated to establishing such a treatment.”

Toward that end, Lady Tamayo asked Tanjiro to do something for her.

In order to discover a cure, the first step was studying the blood of several different demons.

Lady Tamayo asked for Tanjiro’s permission to study Nezuko’s blood.

Also, she asked Tanjiro for more demon blood samples.

  • There is a possibility that Muzan might have planned something for Nezuko.
  • There might be a possibility that Nezuko could develop the ability to walk in the sunlight as she didn’t devour a single human being. And she is also from the Kamado family who use the sun breathing so that it might provide her with the immunity to sunlight that other demons lack.
