Genya Shinazugawa was the main supporting character in the manga and anime series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. He was a Demon Slayer with the special ability to eat the flesh of Demons and gain some of their powers. He was also the younger brother of Sanemi Shinazugawa, one of the Hashira (or Pillars) of the Demon Slayer Corps.
Genya Death: Leagecy of A Hero
Genya died in the last fight against Muzan Kibutsuji, the main bad guy of the series who was the father of all demons. He took part in the fight against Kokushibo, who was Muzan’s best subordinate and the Upper-Rank One of the Twelve Kizuki (Demon Moons). Kokushibo was also shown to be Michikatsu Tsugikuni, the twin brother of Yoriichi Tsugikuni, the famous first person to use Breath of the Sun and an ancestor of the series’ main character, Tanjiro Kamado.
Genya joined hands with Muichiro Tokito, Sanemi Shinazugawa, and Gyomei Himejima, who were also fighting Kokushibo. He was able to eat some of Kokushibo’s meat and get some of his skills, like being able to make blades out of his own body. He also made up with Sanemi, who finally admitted that he was his brother and said he was sorry for pushing him away. Together, they fought bravely against Kokushibo, but his greater skills and experience won out in the end.
During the fight, Kokushibo hit Genya several times, killing him. He lost both arms and half of his body. He didn’t give up, though, and he kept using his guns and blades to help his friends. He also used his last bit of strength to hit Kokushibo in the neck with a blade covered in wisteria, which made Kokushibo weak enough for Muichiro to kill him.
Genya started to fade away like a demon after Kokushibo died because he had eaten too much demon flesh during the fight. He thanked Sanemi for being his brother and told him to keep living for the sake of their whole family. He also thanked Muichiro and Gyomei for helping him fight and said he was sorry for being a bother. He then gave a calm smile and turned into dust.
Genya’s partners and friends were saddened by his death, and they praised him for being brave and giving up himself. Later, his spirit was seen with Muichiro’s spirit when Tanjiro had his last fight with Muzan. They cheered for Tanjiro and hoped he would be able to beat Muzan for good.
Genya is the second oldest of six children. The oldest is Sanemi, and Genya is the second oldest. Their father was an alcoholic who beat up their mother and left them without food and money a lot. Genya looked up to Sanemi, who worked hard to provide for the family and keep them safe from their father.
When he was 10 years old, Genya experienced a heartbreaking incident when his father, overcome by anger, harmed their family. Sanemi came just after it happened, and out of a need to protect himself, he took action against their father. This tragic event left Genya deeply scarred, and she held resentment towards Sanemi for not being there sooner.
Driven by a desire to possibly reverse the past, Sanemi dedicated his life to the Demon Slayer Corps. He advised Genya to keep a distance, fearing the perils of the Demon Slayer’s life for her. However, Genya, seeking validation and driven by her own disdain for demons, who she felt played a role in their family’s tragedy, also chose to join the Corps, hoping to stand alongside her brother.
Genya wasn’t like most Demon Slayers because he didn’t have any Breath Styles or physical powers that made him stronger. Instead, he used his guns and the fact that he could eat demons. Genya could briefly take on some of the traits of Demons by eating their flesh or blood.
For instance, he could enhance his physical abilities and speed, recover more swiftly, and sharpen his senses. Additionally, he could harness certain unique powers, such as manipulating fire and ice.
While Genya had the capacity to consume Demons, each instance was accompanied by immense discomfort and the potential loss of his human essence. He needed to exercise caution, avoiding excessive or frequent consumption to prevent dependency on Demon flesh or an unintended transformation into one.

The Demon Slayer Corps members who are still alive respected Genya’s memory. They saw him as a hero and a true Demon Slayer. His name was written in stone along with the names of the other Demon Slayers who had died. He was also remembered by his brother Sanemi, who lived to fulfill Genya’s wish because he had survived the fight with Muzan. Genya’s guns were another thing Sanemi kept as a reminder of him.
Genya’s death also helped the world in a good way because it led to Muzan’s defeat and the end of the Demon’s danger. His sacrifice paved the way for a new age of peace and harmony between humans and former Demons, who were cured by a medicine made from Muzan’s blood. Genya’s spirit was also seen in the heavens, smiling and happy to be with his family again.
