Warning: The following article contains spoilers from the Kimetsu no Yaiba manga

Demon Slayer is a 205 chapters manga and has become one of the most popular series in the last five years. Everyone has been curious about the main demon slayer cast because each character has a charm of its own.

Amongst the cast is Zenitsu Agatsuma who is one of the main protagonists in demon slayer, and is undoubtedly very strong as seen in the third season. Though he’s hero in sleep and zero while he’s awake, Zenitsu never fails to entertain us.

Zenitsu’s battle strength is probably the biggest fan’s surprise in the demon slayer movie, Demon Slayer Kimetsu manga and anime. He seems like a pervert with him running after Nezuko or pretty much every girl, but he has a light-hearted side which simply wants to be loved.

Demon slayer Anime fans have been wondering about the main character’s age and whether Zenitsu’s actual age is the same fans guessed because he looks so young. In this article, we will be discussing How Old is Zenitsu Agatsuma, Zenitsu’s techniques, comparison with other demon slayer characters and unfolding many more widely searched questions about him. Keep reading to find out about Zenitsu’s love affair.

How Old is Zenitsu in Demon Slayer?

Zenitsu Agatsuma looks pretty young because he’s always scared and trying to get behind Tanjiro Kamado for protection. But to fans surprise, Zenitsu is not the same age as others and is actually 16 years old instead, which makes him older than Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko and Inosuke Hashibira. Nezuko is amongst the characters in Demon Slayer as she is only 12 years old when she becomes a demon in the start.

Zenitsu is different from other demon slayers because despite having a very low self-esteem, his fighting capabilities are extraordinary. He only needs a few seconds to show off his skills and save his loved ones. Zenitsu sets himself apart from demon slayer characters and even other Hashira by the fact that he literally can kill demons in his sleep.

Why does Zenitsu Agatsuma Only use One Technique?

Zenitsu is one of the most interesting characters in demon slayer. A reason behind it is that he fights the most intense battle with only one technique.

Zenitsu was trained by Jigoro Kuwajima, a Thunder Pillar. Zenitsu did not have the courage or desire to be in the demon slayer corps. He always tried to run away from his training and cried when he got tired, but Jigoro continued to train him.

Zenitsu would have perfectly mastered other Thunder Breathing forms, but his low self-esteem prevented him from learning it at all, and so he could not learn the other five forms. Hence, Jigoro convinced him to only perfect Thunder the first form, Thunder and Flash technique, which he did perfectly.

So far, Zenitsu has only used the first form in demon slayer anime, and he continues to use the first form only in all demon slayer manga chapters, until chapter 146. In chapter 146, Zenitsu uses his very own Seventh Form: Flaming Thunder God technique against the upper-rank demon Kaigaku, in the Infinity Castle Arc. This technique has only been used by Zenitsu, and although it looks very similar to the first form, it is indeed very different because Zenitsu’s speed and power are more than double when he uses it. He’s on a whole other level when using the Seventh Form: Honoikazuchi no Kami.

Do Zenitsu and Nezuko Get Married?

Demon Slayer doesn’t really show romance between characters and although Zenitsu Agatsuma is extremely scared of demons, he still ends up developing a huge crush on Tanjiro Kamado’s demon sister. The first time Zenitsu sees Nezuko is in episode 14 of the anime when she comes out of the wooden box, and that begins Zenitsu’s never ending chase of Nezuko.

Nezuko also protects Zenitsu on their dangerous adventures together. She may not have romantic feelings for him at first, but she always did care for him.

Many demon slayer fans have been wonderful if Zenitsu and Nezuko end up getting together, and the answer is yes, they do. Zenitsu does not treat Nezuko like other demons. He loves her and always admires her.

The manga does not show their marriage, but by the end their descendants are shown, proving that they did get married. Zenitsu and Nezuko’s descendants are their great-granddaughter Toko Agatsuma and Yoshiteru Agatsuma.

Who Does Zenitsu Agatsuma Admire?

Zenitsu Agatsuma extremely admires his former teacher, Jigoro Kuwaijima, who used to be a Thunder Hashira. Zenitsu would have never joined the demon slayer corps or trained if it was not for Jigoro, who always encouraged him and pushed him to bring the best out of himself.

Zenitsu also has a lot of admiration for Rengoku, the flame Hashira. The flame Hashira is one of the Mugen train passengers, and the Zenitsu becomes inspired by his charisma and willpower. Although he is Zenitsu’s polar opposite because of how courageous he is, he still managed to earn a place in his heart. This is why Zenitsu, Inosuke Hashibira and Tanjiro Kamado are seen crying their eyes out after the flame Hashira’s death.

Is Zenitsu stronger or Tanjiro Kamado in Demon Slayer?

When it comes to breathing style, Tanjiro is a child prodigy who has mastered two breathing styles, sun breathing and water breathing. Meanwhile, Zenitsu is a strong demon slayer, but he has only mastered two techniques from Thunder Breathing.

Moreover, when it comes to willpower, then Tanjiro probably has one of the strongest willpower among all demon slayer corps members. However, there is one thing in which Zenitsu is stronger than Tanjiro: “Speed”. When Zenitsu is asleep, he fears no demon, which makes him extremely strong.

Secondly, Zenitsu’s speed is so fast that it even surprised the upper moon Kaigaku in the manga and the Sound Hashira in the demon slayer anime. When Zenitsu is asleep, he’s not only extremely fast, but his sword skills are extremely accurate. Furthermore, he does not even feel severe injuries until he’s awake.

It can be concluded that Tanjiro Kamado is stronger than Zenitsu in terms of breathing techniques, courage, and that he fights more intelligently, But when it comes to speed, there’s a chance Zenitsu has an upper hand. However, if the two were to fight, Tanjiro would win because the Sun-breathing technique is no joke and Zenitsu cannot go up against it.

Is Zenitsu stronger than Inosuke Hashibira in Demon Slayer?

Demon Slayer: Zenitsu and Inosuke

At first, Zenitsu may look weaker than Insouke Hashibira because of his courage and raw strength, and Insouke Hashibara might be stronger than Zenitsu in the starting episodes of demon slayer anime. However, Zenitsu’s strength significantly improves as the series progresses.

Zenitsu could only use one form of Thunder breathing, yet he could do it so well that his master could see the potential he had and kept on encouraging him to train more. Even the Upeer rank demon, Daki acknowledged Zenitsu for being so fast and powerful, which is why she did not eat him at first.

Moreover, by the mid of Demon Slayer manga, Zenitsu learns the seventh form of thunder breathing as well, which means his speed and abilities increase by trifold. Inosuke Hashiba can use his raw strength and durability to put up a good fight against Zenitsu. But once Zenitsu uses his Thunderclap and God’s Speed, Insouke Hashibira would be sliced into pieces in a moment’s notice.
