Hantengu's Weakness

The main battle for the Swordsmith Village Arc has just begun on Demon Slayer Season 3, and the most recent episode has revealed a significant weakness that could be the key for Tanjiro and the others to defeat Hantengu and his lethal clones.

The rest of the Upper Ranks have been dispatched by Muzan Kibutsuji to make their move and make up for the loss of one of his most powerful fighters after Gyutaro was defeated in Demon Slayer Season 2. However, this implies that Tanjiro will face his toughest battles yet.

The battle between the Upper Four, Hantengu, and Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Genya Shinazugawa in Demon Slayer Season 3 has begun. It was quickly made clear why the anxious-seeming demon had such a high rating overall. Tanjiro and the others now have to contend with the numerous clones that have been produced from the original demon after Hantengu’s actual strength was revealed upon his initial decapitation. Tanjiro learns that each of the clones would become weaker the more they diverge from the main bodies, which presents a weakness to take advantage of.

Tanjiro continues to battle the flying Hantengu clone, Urogi, in Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 4, but just as Urogi is about to attack, Tanjiro quickly rips through his head. Tanjiro understands that the pieces that had been chopped were not as powerful as the original clone bodies and begins to worry about the clone spreading further as a result of this small error. Then Tanjiro realizes that each of them probably has a certain amount of strength, therefore more cutting will significantly weaken them.

As of the most recent Demon Slayer Season 3 episode, Tanjiro is figuring out how to deal with Hantengu rather quickly, but actually defeating the Upper Rank foe is more easier said than done. Tanjiro has previously discovered a variety of flaws in his adversaries, only for those demons to counter with a different strategy they had been holding back.

Demon Slayer season 3 episode 5 is titled “Red Sword”, and the synopsis is as following:

“Tanjiro rushes to Mameko, who is struggling, and fights back and forth, but is attacked by Karaku with a fan, and Nezuko and Mameko faint. At that time, a group of goldfish demons attacked the swordsmiths one after another, and the village was in danger. When Mitsuri hears the news, she sets out to rescue the village.”
