Demon Slayer season 3 “Swordsmith Village Arc” is back with another amazing episode, and this time, the series introduced us to a Demon Slayer who uses guns as a primary weapon to fight demons. Guns are used in the demon slayer series, but they are not the primary weapon as Demon Slayers use swords to combat, which are specifically designed to fight demons.
In Episode 2, we saw glimpses of Genya, who was initially introduced in Episode 22 of Demon Slayer, where Tanjiro apparently broke his arm. Genya is the younger brother of Sanemi Shinazugawa, the Wind Hashira. But apparently, they don’t get along that well. The reason for that is still to be revealed in the anime.
Genya can be seen using guns in the recent episode when Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokita are suddenly attacked by the upper moon rank four demon, Hantengu. Tanjiro and Muichiro cut off the demon’s head, but he just splits into multiple entities. Muichiro gets sent flying in the forest by one of these split entities.
Tanjiro and Nezuko seem to be in deep trouble, and that is when Genya enters the scene, firing on the demons and potentially saving Tanjiro and Nezuko from a dangerous situation.
What is Genya’s Power?
Genya’s powers are yet to be revealed in the anime series, so here is your spoiler warning if you would like.
Genya is known for his immense physical strength. He has a unique ability to consume the flesh of demons, which temporarily grants him demon-like powers and the ability to heal quickly. However, consuming demon flesh has a drawback, as well as it takes a toll on Genya’s body.
What differentiates Genya from other demon slayers is his ability to use guns against demons. He uses guns specifically crafted from the same material from which the demon slayer swords are made. These bullets are then infused with Genya’s blood, which creates a powerful spell. Once hit with Genya’s bullets, demons become weaker for the time being, and their ability to regenerate also becomes weakened.
Considering that upper moon rank 4 demon, Hantengu has the fastest regeneration ability seen so far in the anime, Genya is likely to play a crucial role in taking down this threat.
