‘Demon Slayer’ has quickly become one of the most popular anime of all time. Fans genuinely enjoy the anime and the amazing characters. Kibutsuji Muzan is the anime’s primary antagonist and he is very cruel and rude. Despite his cruel nature, fans are truly fascinated by him and some even adore him.
However, the cruel and cold demon king also has some emotions. Despite how he treats his upper moons, he does favor one upper moon among the rest even if it isn’t clear. Read to find out Muzan’s favorite upper moon.
Who Is Kibutsuji Muzan?
Kibutsuji Muzan, as mentioned above, is the primary antagonist in ‘Demon Slayer’. He is the strongest demon in existence and is also the first of his kind. Muzan got turned into a demon accidentally. Ever since he was born as a human, Muzan had always been sick and he was told that he wouldn’t live past 20. Many doctors tried to heal him, but only one succeeded. The doctor used a special medicine to cure Muzan but it ultimately turned him into a demon.
Personality-wise, Muzan is very calculative, suspicious, and careful. He tries his hardest to make sure that no one, especially the Hashira, is aware of his whereabouts. Muzan is also very cruel and doesn’t tolerate disrespect and inefficiency. He created his twelve Kizuki a long time after he was turned into a demon. The twelve Kizuki consist of six lower moon demons and six upper moon demons. Muzan created them to make his work easier and to eliminate the demon slayer corps.
Who Is Muzan’s Favorite Upper Moon?
This is a very interesting question because a character like Muzan having a favorite upper moon demon is very unusual. However, he most definitely has one. Fans believe that Muzan’s favorite demon is Akaza because he trusts him the most and he’s the one he contacts the most.
However, it is actually Kokushibo. It seems very weird because he doesn’t interact with the upper moon all that much, but he’s the one that Muzan is the closest to. After Tamayo, Kokushibo is the oldest demon after Muzan. He is also the only demon who has a breathing style. Despite being the older twin of Yoriichi, the person who scares Muzan, Kokushibo is trusted by Muzan.
In addition to that, Kokushibo is kind of the second in command of the demons. Muzan views him more like a business associate than a subordinate. This means a lot since Muzan is exceptionally powerful and doesn’t respect many people. Therefore contrary to what many fans may believe, it is actually Kokushibo that Muzan favors the most.
