He is a famous and loved character among the Demon Slayer Manga readers.

Muchiro is one of the Strongest Hashira

He has great potential, and he is growing at a breakneck pace. It’s like Muichiro Tokito has no limits.

Muichiro first appeared in Demon Slayer Anime in episode 22 of Season 1 when Tanjiro Kamado was brought in the presence of all the Hashira at the Demon Slayer headquarters, where Tanjiro was put on trial.

Now, the question arises exactly Who is Muichiro Tokito?

Muichiro Tokito is the Mist Hashira. Hashiras are the highest-ranking swordsmen in the Demon Slayer Core.

There were 9 Hashiras, out of which the Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku was defeated and killed by the Upper Moon 3.

Muichiro is just 14 years old, and yet he is a Hashira. He is also short.

It is also said that He became a Hashira just two months after he picked up the Nichirin Sword for the first time.

Muichiro Tokito is what we call a Prodigy.

The Demon Slayer- Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train focused on the Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku.

Demon Slayer Season Two, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc focused on the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui.

In the same way, In Demon Slayer Season Three, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc, we will focus on the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito and Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji. 

Therefore, we can expect some great action from these Hashiras.

Muichiro Tokito is a very Strong Hashira, despite the fact that he is only 14 years old.

He uses Mist Breathing Technique.

There are six forms of the Mist Breathing Technique. The Seventh form of the Mist Breathing Technique is developed and used only by Muichiro Tokito, the current Mist Hashira.

Muichiro Tokito is the descendant of Yoriichi and Michikatsu(also known as Kokushibo or the Upper Moon One).

Yoriichi is the legendary strongest character in the Demon Slayer Universe.

So, being a swordsman is in Muichiro’s blood.

The fact that Muichiro became a Hashira just two months after he picked up the Nichirin Sword for the first time proves that he is exceptionally talented.

Muichiro is super focused and super strong. He has great concentration.

Muichiro lives in his domain. He is always looking toward the clouds.

Muichiro will awaken the Demon Slayer Mark.

The Demon Slayer Mark of Muichiro Tokito are in the shape of clouds on both sides of his face.

Muichiro lived with his twin brother, mother and father. Muichiro belonged to a woodcutter family.

The name of Muichiro’s brother is Yuichiro.

His mother was ill all the time. First, his mother had a severe cold, which later turned into bronchitis. 

Muichiro’s father was a hard-working man.

Muichiro’s father went to get medicinal herbs in a deadly storm and fell down a cliff. This resulted in his death.

Just a little after Muichiro’s father died, Muichiro’s mother also passed away due to her illness.

When their parents passed away, Muichiro and Yuichiro were just ten years old.

This is how the Tokito Twins were orphaned and forced to live by caring for each other.

One night a Demon attacked Muichiro’s Work Cabin. This Demon attacked Muichiro and Yuichiro.

Yuichiro lost his arm while protecting Muichiro. After that, the Demon insulted them both for being helpless and worthless.

Seeing all this, Muichiro was driven by rage and attacked the Demon by swinging the tools he had.

He gave the Demon a run for his money. He almost defeated that Demon with just mere woodcutting tools.

He fought the Demon till the sunrise. As soon as the Demon was exposed to the Sunlight, the Demon was turned into ashes.

Muichiro was severely wounded during this fight. 

Muichiro, in this wounded state, somehow managed to return to his home, where his brother was struggling with his life.

His brother also passed away. So now Muichiro was left all alone.

Amane Ubuyashiki, the wife of Kagaya Ubuyashiki, the leader of Demon Slayer Core, arrived at this site and treated Muichiro’s Injuries and helped him heal.

Muichiro had intense rage against Demons and developed a deep desire to hunt down the demons.

After this, he trained excessively and became a Hashira in just a matter of two months after picking up the Nichirin Sword.

Muichiro Tokito(Mediascrolls Theory)

Being a descendant of Yoriichi and Michikatsu, there is a possibility that he could use and adapt Sun Breathing, the most powerful breathing technique of all.

There is also a possibility that Muichiro has awakened the Demon Slayer Mark, and he is also the descendent of Yoriichi and Michikatsu.

He is unaware of Sun Breathing, which might be why he does not use it.
