Muichiro Tokito (時透 無一郎 Tokito Muichiro) is part of the Demon Slayer Corps in the Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) series. He is a genius and only took 2 months before becoming a Pillar at a young age and he uses the Breath of Mist (霞の呼吸 Kasumi no Kokyu). He has long black hair which fades into turquoise and pale green eyes. His eyes always look blank and most of the time he doesn’t show emotion and is expressionless. His Demon Slayer uniform has wide loose sleeves unlike the cuffed gakuran look and doesn't wrap his calves giving off a kimono style.

Muichiro's mother died due to sickness and his father died trying to find medicine for his mother leaving Muichiro and his older twin brother, Yuichiro to fend for themselves. Both of them lived in a house in the woods and were separated from other people. Since they were descended from the first breath of Demon Slayers, Amane Ubuyashiki came to recruit them to join the Demon Slayer Corps but was refused many times. One night, their house is attacked by a demon resulting in Yuichiro dying and Muichiro destroying the Demon using every tool at his disposal in a fit of rage and desperation. Seeing his brother slowly passing away he loses his memories and leaves to join the Demon Slayer Corps.


Muichiro seems to always be forgetting things and his mind is constantly wandering. He doesn't let his emotions control him and his actions are decided based on logic. However, before his twin brother died he had a much more caring personality, showing compassion and kindness. When his brother is killed by a Demon Muichiro loses his memories and becomes passive. After his memories returned he started to express his feelings more allowing himself to display more emotions.

Skills and Abilities

  • Master Swordsman: Being a Pillar of the Demon Slayer Corps, Muichiro is one of the most powerful and skilled swordsmen in the entire organization.
  • Enhanced strength: Despite his body appearing to be the smallest and seemingly weakest of the Demon Slayers and Pillars, Muichiro has been shown to be stronger than Tanjiro Kamado, who is older than him, by a large margin. He is able to knock him out with a neck chop.
  • Omnipresent Rage: Although Muichiro has lost his memories, inside him is the suppressed rage deeply hidden inside him which is the source of his willpower towards training and his strength.
  • See Through World: Similar to Tanjiro Kamado, Muichiro has the ability to see the ‘See Through World’, which granted him superhuman kinetic vision similar to Kanao Tsuyuri. The ability allows him to see the muscles, blood flow, and joint movement of his opponents, which enables him to accurately predict and anticipate the movements and attacks of his opponents.
  • Crimson Red Nichirin Blade: During his battle against Upper Moon One, Kokushibo, Muichiro gained the ability to dye his Nichirin Blade in a crimson red color, which would nullify a Demon's powers and regeneration.
  • Demon Slayer Mark: Muichiro's mark is first awakened during his battle against Upper Moon Five, Gyokko. The mark appears as several mist-like shapes on his face and arms. When activated, he gains a tremendous increase in speed, strength, and reflexes. The power increase grants him the strength to move his severely poisoned body but once the mark vanishes he immediately begins suffering from the effects of the poison, showing that the mark is only effective while it is manifested.
