In the “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” manga and anime series, Tanjiro Kamado killed Hantengu, the Upper Moon 4.
During the Swords Smith Village Arc events, Hantengu is one of the demons who attempts to stop Tanjiro Kamado and the demon slayer corps.
Tanjiro and Misturi’s swordsmanship and ability to quickly analyze their opponent’s weaknesses played a key role in defeating Hantengu, who was considered one of the more difficult demons to defeat due to his unique abilities.
During their fight, when Tanjiro was about to use the Hinokami Kagura, In response, the identical clone of Hantengu, Urami used the Wood Manipulation technique to generate 4 giant dragons who hurled Tanjiro into the air to disbalance his attacks, further Hantengu used a sonic shriek burst Tanjiro’s eardrums so that he loses his balance.
Nezuko and Genya, trapped at that time, could not help Tanjiro.
But Mitsuri Kanroji intervenes and splits the dragon’s head in half, where Tanjiro is trapped.
After this, she also demands the upper demon 4 to release Nezuko and Genya.
In response, Urami launched one of his powerful attacks called Crazed Cry of Thunder Death and Blood Demon Art: Countless Striking Trees, which Mitsuri somehow managed to dodge using her Sixth Form: Catlegged Winds of Love and then she used Love Breathing, Fifth Form: Swaying Love Wildclaw to kill Urami but Zohakuten the most potent form of Hantengu attacks her from a point blank range and inflicted severe damage to her.
In response, Tanjiro, Genya and Nezuko push Mitsuri away, so she doesn’t inflict further pain.
But as Misturi was the strongest and Urami and Zohakuten were continuously attacking them with the wooden dragons; therefore, although Misturi was injured, I thought that she, Tanjiro, Genya and Nezuko would all attack him differently.

Zohakuten attacks Tanjiro Genya and Nezuko, but Nezuko uses her blood demon art and Tanjiro uses his Hinokami Kagura to stop him.
Genya takes down most of the trees with his attacks, and Tanjiro and Nezuko’s coordinated attacks burn down the trees, but they soon discover that Hantengu’s body is nowhere there and is gone.
Later on when Tanjiro identified where Hantengu was hiding.
Tanjiro uses his newly developed total concentration breathing technique and blitzes towards Hantengu with immense speed.
When he was about to decapitate Hantengu, Hantengu grows his body into Urami again, and he grabs Tanjiro by the skull and tries to crush him to the ground.
But Genya intervenes and stops him from crushing Tanjiro.
In response, Nezuko leaps towards Urami and again uses her blood demon art to set him on flame.
The attack was so powerful that even Genya with Tanjiro had to flee from that move as it would also burn them.
After Nezuko’s attack, everyone falls to the ground, including Taniro, and Genya, but Urami still somehow manage to stand up and starts to run.
Tanjiro then used his Thunder dance and flash, instantly combining Hinokami Kagura and Thunder Breathing, decapitating Urami.
As this was happening, the sun started to come up Tanjiro understood that this would be deadly for Nezuko as she was still in open ground and Demons could not survive sunlight.
As the sun starts to arrive, Nezuko’s body starts to burn, but still, during her dying moments, she tells Tanjiro that Hantengu is still alive.
As Hantengu starts to flee, Nezuko pushes his brother away from her and tells him to complete his duty by killing Hantengu.
Therefore Tanjiro used his supersense to capture the surrounding smells and looked for a fleeing demon body. As soon as he figures out Hantengu’s body, he attacks him and decapitates his head, killing Upper Demon Moon 4 Hantengu once and for all.
