The color of which shading from pale green at the roots to black at the ends. Yushiro is seen wearing a button up shirt and white kimono over navy colored pants.


He shows undying loyalty to Tamayo, the doctor and Demon that saved him. Selfish and short tempered, in his first appearance he holds an arrogant attitude looking down on those around him. Even easily insulting Nezuko in front of Tanjiro with a scowl on his face. However, when speaking or admiring Tamayo, his expression takes a complete turn showing a different side. He admires Tamayo and is in love with her. When others get too personal to Tamayo he avoids them, showing even the smallest bit of desire towards her, he perceives them to be criticizing her. As Tanjiro says that all the Demons have a hard time controlling their appetite to feast on people, he seems to be offended, questioning Tanjiro whether he assumed all the Demons were that bloodthirsty to him. Given this, he will show respect for others, because he took back his statement that Nezuko was an eyesore and found her attractive and also covering Tanjiro's mouth to keep him from inhaling Tamayo's perfume, which is toxic to humans. He has dexterous hands, and made the dagger which is able to automatically collect a Demon's blood to Tanjiro.

Amakusa Arc

In the Amakusa Arc, Yushiro is the first to recognize the Demons, Susamaru and Yahaba as they strike the house and when Susamaru's handball crashes through the wall, he instinctively goes to protect Tamayo. Yet his head is stripped off just after he learns that Muzan's underlings are the Demons. As Tanjiro is battling the two demons Tamayo is protecting his body while Yushiro is developing his head anew. Yushiro starts yelling about how the tougher it is to mask the more people are covered beneath his Blood Demon Art. He even mentions the dislike against other interfering between him and Tamayo.

Yushiro and Tamayo get struck by the ball several times before he asks Tanjiro to stop the movements of the arrow projectiles. Eventually helping Tanjiro see the invisible arrows by assisting him with a talisman created using his blood Demon art.

Yushiro is a Demon of unknown energy, even though he has lived for a long time by the side of Tamayo, he himself a deceptively powerful demon that could seriously threaten Muzan’s existence, it is believed that Yushiro is also a capable warrior. But Yushiro, for his part, is more of a support combatant, helping others with his powers to discern invisible things using his demon art, or otherwise masking the presence of his allies outside battle.
  • Medical Knowledge - Being Tamayo's assistant, Yushiro is also a medical expert who is familiar with her unique methods and medications. He was able to bring back the almost dead Tanjiro to his strength, allowing him to get back into fighting.

When this Mind Control is used on Demons, he can take control of their techniques and abilities.This control that Yushiro has over his targets are on both mental and physical levels.
