What’s up bitches! Today I’m gonna dish to you some of the strongest and some of the most ruthless demons of anime. I got my results by taking the popularity, strength, attitude, and savagery of the demon into account.
I am currently blogging this from Minneapolis and let’s just say…this list is about to be as cold as the winter weather here. So be warned!
5. Sebastian from Black Butler
Yes. You’re favorite demon butler made the list. With his many talents, strong dedication, and dry sense of humor, he has won the hearts of many Japanese girls out there who fantasize of a British husband. And the hearts of the many American teenagers . He is unrepentanly truthful and has such dry humor, he is always there to put anyone in their place. Super intelligent. A literal jack of ALL trades. You try to be a butler, head a team of hurricane leg staff members, clean the whole mansion, write a whole historical letter, save the master from death, and fight a lady with a chainsaw ALL WHILE STILL SERVING UP THE SASS! His loyalty to his master, Ciel, goes so far and is so unbreakable. But it does make sense… he is one hell of a butler.

4. Nezuko Kamado from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba
My heart! She’s so precious! And can kick some ass! She becomes stronger and stronger throughout the series helping her brother, Tanjiro, get out of the thickest of situations. She gets points for being the best kickball player you can have on the team and she gets points for her willpower. Her loyalty to her brother and his to her is so strong it makes me cry! THEY ARE NOT A FORGED BOND! This dedication and loyalty allows her to access unlimited amounts of strength that definitely puts her on the list! It goes to show you can have all the strength in the world, but when you have a fighting spirit, that’s what is going to allow you to win the battle.
Okay, so when demons smell blood, their senses kick in and they crave it. They can’t help but to eat humans in order to survive. Mad props to Nezuko though for not giving in on those instincts. Having the willpower to keep biting that bamboo piece and turning her head when a Hashira was intentionally spill blood all over to get her to bite. Also, she apparently has some Flame skills hidden in her back pocket that we may see more of in the coming seasons. This is a skill she accessed when fighting Rui and was able to incinerate his steel like webs in just seconds!
As for savage, ehhh not so much. But look how cute she is!
Nezuko is delivering more and more potential every episode with such willpower and determination. I can’t wait to put her at the top of the list once she and Tanjiro defeat Kibutsuji! (at least I’m hoping for that)

3. Inuyasha & Sesshomaru from Inuyasha
Alright, yes. Sesshomaru, by nature, is more powerful than his younger brother Inuyasha. He’s a full fledged demon! However, the thing that Inuyasha has that Sesshomaru doesn’t is drive! And Tetsusaiga. Before their father (who was one of the most powerful demons ever) died, he had his fang forged into two swords, Tetsusaiga (the sword of Attack) and Tenseiga (the sword of Healing). He handed down those swords to Inuyasha and Sesshomaru accordingly. Being a half demon does give Inuyasha some power but nowhere near as much as Sesshomaru. Also, his human blood makes him a little more soft-hearted than our full demon Sesshomaru. But with Tetsusaiga, Inuyasha is given the power to slay 1,000 demons with one swipe of the sword. Something Sesshomaru only wishes he could do. Until he created Bakusaiga, which made him top over Inuyasha once more.
Both of them are ruthless in their demon state. Yeah. Demon state. That’s easy for Sesshomaru because that’s him 24/7. Cold-hearted and non-chalant as hell. One of the most powerful demons to roam the land. However, for the majority of the series we see Inuyasha in what I call “half demon state”. Only few times we see him tap into his full demon powers… and it is quite terrifying. Blood of innocent men, women, and animals are shed. He’s lost all control of his powers obliterating everything in sight. His taste for blood and devouring humans enhance. And his lust for killing takes over. This state is so terrifying even Sesshomaru was intimidated by his younger brother’s demon power.
Even though we have the sibling rivalry of Sesshomaru’s natural strength topping Inuyasha’s given strength, there is still something that puts the two at even playing fields. Inuyasha’s drive! His determination to protect Kagome and exact his vengeance on Naraku goes as far as Sesshomaru’s natural strength.

2. Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul
Ghouls. Demons…Nowadays it means the same thing. The original meaning of demon is a being that comes from the underworld. Now, it has loosely turned into a supernatural being that preys on humans.
Even though he was weak at first and couldn’t grasp the concept of his new reality, Kaneki became a powerhouse by the final episode of season 1! Such a pivot in character! Don’t get me wrong. If I was tortured for days and forced to watch a couple get brutally slaughtered in front of me, I’d let the crazy side of me take over too!
Jason, the demon who tortured Kaneki, was an S Rank demon with such immense strength, and little tiny Kaneki (with the help of Miss Rize’s power) beat the shit out of him! Evading every move, blocking every punch, and literally kicking him a football field away! Pinning down this huge ghoul with his bare hands and then TORTURING HIM THE SAME WAY HE WAS TORTURED BEFORE EATING THE MOTHER FUCKER! That Savagery though!
White hair Kaneki delivered brute strength, fought at jet-like speeds, and developed the heart of chain mail. His peers at Anteiku were even worried about this change because he grew so cold to people and so willing to let this new power take over and escalate bloodlust and his desire to eat humans. All so he could become an even more powerful ghoul.

Before I reveal the #1 Demon of Anime, let’s take a look at some of our other demon friends who didn’t quite make the cut but should be mentioned.
Ikoma from Kotetsujo No Kabaneri
Naraku from Inuyasha
Hyakkimaru from Dororo
Rui from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba
All the Homonculus from Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
And the #1 Demon of anime is…
1. Teresa from Claymore (Tie)
It’s a tie!
Miss Teresa of the Faint Smiles is the number Claymore for a reason. She has proven herself a worthy adversary in combat taking on FOUR CLAYMORES (powerful human-like creatures with demon like powers) BY HERSELF… and bitch still didn’t use her Yoma (in other words full power). Literally, she was sitting in a chair nonchalantly as one of the Claymores was whipping their quicksword around ready to kill her and she still sat in that chair not giving a singular fuck! But she’s not the best Claymore because of her strength. She has a unique ability to sense the demonic energy from any Yoma (in other words demon) around her. Anticipating their every attack and sensing their every move making her one step ahead of her opponent. As for a human… HAH no human stands a chance against her!
Okay, now let’s talk about Savagery. My girl is a straight savage…with a heart. She has been known amongst the Claymore to be cold and ruthless. However, that simmered down a bit once she took in an orphan girl named Clare who she rescued from a pack of Yoma. Not too much later after that, Clare was in danger of some very sinister bandits while Teresa was away. When Teresa arrives back at the town she left Clare. She finds it burned to the ground and Clare to be knocked unconscious after being raped by one of the bandits. THIS SET MOTHER TERESA OFF! Notice I said “Mother” because she quickly became Mama Bear and slaughtered each of those bandits in cold blood.
Which, if you know the series, breaks the code of the Claymore and is punishable by death. So Teresa is put her life on the line Clare and had a bounty on her. All in all, I’m saying my girl is a SAVAGE when it comes to Clare. She did have a chance to kill one of the Claymore who were coming after her however withdrew her sword and spared her life. Even one of the other Claymore stated that the old Teresa would have never done that, so Clare has made her a bit soft in the savage department.

1. Muzan Kibutsuji from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba (Tie)
This was tough!!!! I believe Teresa and Kibutsuji are on even playing fields when it comes to strength! Her having the ability to sense her opponents every move and him having the ability to read his opponents thoughts… it would probably be the longest battle in history. Longer than Goku and Kid Buu (and we know even that battle was). DEMO, the reason why I think Teresa would lose the battle is because we truly do not know Kibutsuji’s full powers. If he was able to make a demon that can control spider webs from his fingers that can cut through steel, the bitch got power! If he was able to create a demon that can play the drums and it rotates a whole house around, bitch got power! If he can create a demon who can play a Shamisen and it puts your mind through an Itachi genjutsu and teleport you where it wants…BITCH GOT POWER! Then again, Teresa knows her way around the sword… but I wouldn’t be surprised if that shit breaks when it comes in contact with his neck. Then she would be screwed. All she has are her fists, meanwhile he has a meat-looking demon thing that comes out of his body and can shape shift into anything while probably reaching as far as a hundred meters. So her ass may be as good as dead.
And let’s not for get this man is a complete SAVAGE. He is ruthless. He is so powerful it’s ridiculous. He only made two appearances in Season 1 and he is at the top of the list. There is a reason! That first appearance was all I needed to see to place him up here.
Just imagine walking down the street one day and someone bumps into you. You say I must get going but they keep harassing you and call you “ugly” or “old”. Most people keep walking because they know it isn’t worth it. BUT NOT KIBUTSUJI! He had to prove a point: Do I look imperfect to you?! BAM! Punch a guy into a brick wall instantly killing him. BOOM! One kick launching another guy storeys high. Killing instantly. “Hey. How about I stick my finger in your brain and force my demon blood into body so you can die a painful death. Being turnt to mush and evaporating into thin air.” And give NO FUCKS about how he killed these innocent people.
Or shall I mention. “You mentioned my name, servant?! You shall not say my name! I will summon a pair of arms out of your mouth to rip you to shreds. Leaving just your clothes in a pool of blood.” Give NO FUCKS about how this person was trying to help him. Just like how he gave zero to no fucks at all about massacring his lower Kizuki ranks. Some begged for forgiveness and pleaded loyalty…he killed them. Some asked for more of his power… he saw this as a demand so he kills them. Some tried to run… bitch was twenty football fields away and he still cute his head off. Literally, it took someone to say, “please kill me by your all powerful hands. This would be a dream,” for him to be like Hmm…this guy just stroked my ego. Here take some more power and do my bidding. He is a man who knows what he wants and that’s perfection. Nothing less! Scary thing about all of this. We haven’t even seen him unlock his full powers yet …not even 25 percent.
The man gets 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 x2 for SAVAGERY!
However, we have seen the power of Rui of the Twelve Kizuki. The Twelve Kizuki are supposed to represent a fraction of Kibutsuji’s power…Are you kidding? That mother fucker was like Jason!
He wouldn’t die! His Demon Blood Art was far superior to anything Tanjiro had faced! He back Tanjiro so far into a corner I thought, “This may be the final episode of Demon Slayer. Tanjiro is about to be out!” AND HE WAS ONLY OF THE LOWER FIVE! Given this knowledge, I think it’s safe to say Kibutsuji’s strength is God-like.
