Tengen Uzui and Kyojuro Rengoku are the two pillars of the Demon Slayer Corps. They all stood in the ranks of high-level demon-slayer swordsmen, possessing many skills that could defeat the lower-level demons with ease. If Rengoku shines in his battle with the top legend Akaza in the Mugen Train arc, then Tengen Uzui excited fans with a flashy performance when fighting the top legend Gyutaro in the Entertainment District arc.
Uzui has special endurance and tactics, and Rengoku’s strength is so impressive that even the high-ranking Akaza wants to recruit him to become a demon. The two pillars can be said to be equal in strength, but if forced to choose one stronger, will Uzui or Rengoku be ranked above the other?
First, let’s talk about the skills of the two pillars. Both come from “not-so-good” backgrounds. Uzui comes from a long-standing shinobi clan, having to undergo rigorous and somewhat harsh training for ninjas from an early age. This has helped him to have more methodical combat skills compared to other pillars. During the battle with Gyutaro, Uzui used ninja skills such as moving secretly, pressing poison, investigating news …
However, in this respect, the Rengoku pillar also proved to be no less competitive. He comes from a family with a long tradition of mastitis, although he did not inherit the proper upbringing and training from his father – the former mastitis – but through books and records handed down from the “grandparents” era. brother”, Rengoku still perfected his fighting skills. Rengoku is considered the strongest of his generation, he mastered the breath of fire and masterfully used all five forms of this fighting skill to take down the strongest Xuan with ease before losing to the master. Akaza myth. Thus, between a trained Uzui and a self-taught Rengoku, it seems that Rengoku has a higher understanding of swordsmanship.
Another aspect to consider when comparing the strength of the two pillars is their sensory sensitivity. Usually, the pillars will possess special sensory abilities. Uzui has extremely good hearing, so he can listen to his opponent’s moves in combat and from there compose a score of his own, and then build a strategy based on this score.
As for Rengoku, he has a very sensitive premonition, just like Tanjiro follows a demon by smell, he senses the appearance of a demon, knows exactly if it is a high-class demon or not and based on these hunches to estimate the time. their regeneration time after each hit. Both of these abilities are very special, however, in battle, Rengoku’s quick hunch will help him react more quickly, although it is unlikely to guarantee victory. In contrast, Uzui’s score can guarantee a high kill rate, but requires him to have the endurance to hold out until he finishes composing the score, which is quite disadvantageous if he encounters strong and likeable opponents. End the war quickly.
Uzui and Rengoku are also considered to be the two pillars possessing the most formidable speed in the pillars of the Demon Slayer. Thanks to the ninja’s movement skills, Uzui runs very fast. However, his attack speed seems to still be a bit slow compared to Rengoku, because in the fight with Gyutaro he still needed the help of Tanjiro and the others to turn the situation around.
As for Rengoku, when faced with Akaza, he was able to put his mind on par with this dangerous demon alone, reaching speeds where Tanjiro describes him as unable to follow the duel. strength between him and Akaza. Although Rengoku eventually died, it cannot be denied that for an ordinary person swordsman, being able to both hold back the high level demon and save the lives of more than 200 passengers on board is almost an extraordinary thing.
The most talked about thing about cylindrosis and yin is their fighting will and character. Uzui is known for being flashy and somewhat conceited when he first appeared, but his eccentricity may be the result of a painful past as well as serving as a psychological tactic to help conceal. emotional weakness in front of the opponent. Because of this, when fighting Gyutaro, he kept his spirit, creating surprises in attacks.
Cylinder Rengoku does not have the eccentricity of his teammates. However, he has a moral code of his own and follows it strictly, which gives him surprising mental strength. Not only that, even at the last moment of his life, Rengoku was not shaken by Akaza’s attractive offer, even he made Tanjiro’s group respect before his noble personality. This is something that not everyone can do, when in the original comics, many members of the Demon Slayer chose to follow the devil’s invitation and join Muzan.
