Giyu is a tall young man of muscular stature and pale complexion, who is almost always seen wearing a neutral or emotionless expression. He has unruly black hair of uneven length that sticks in clumps around his head, which he wears tied in a low ponytail at the base of his neck. His bangs fall over his eyes in an uneven fringe. His eyes are sharp and reasonably thin, their irises a deep sapphire that fades to a lighter blue and their pupils a bluish black, and are framed by thin eyebrows.

Giyu Tomioka

Giyu wears a dark cyan tinted version of the standard demon slayer uniform with white buttoned leggings and a pair of white zori with dark blue straps, the socks under the same cyan color as his uniform. On that, Giyu wears a haori that is divided in the middle into two different patterns: the one on the right a plain pink-red and the one on the left geometrically patterned with squares of green, orange and yellow. Later, these haori belonged to his deceased older sister, Tsutako Tomioka, and his deceased friend Sabito.

As a child, Giyu did not have such long bangs and still kept his hair tied up. He also wore his late sister's haori, and like all Sakonji's students, wore a fox face mask made by him.

During his battle with Muzan Kibutsuji, he lost his right arm. After the fight, Giyu cut his hair to shoulder length, wearing it loose instead of tied up.


Giyu always has a serious expression on his face. He has a reserved personality and a strong sense of justice without any tolerance for those who do not know their own limits. Although he let Nezuko Kamado live because of Tanjiro Kamado's persistence, he shows no hesitation when killing other demons and has no respect for them like most of the slayers. Despite this, Giyu violated the code of conduct of the Demon Slayer Army by protecting Nezuko when Shinobu tried to kill her. This implies that he doesn't completely despise demons and is willing to make an exception for a demon by letting them live if they don't kill and eat humans. This shows that he is more pragmatic in his dealings with demons rather than out of hatred for demons.

Giyu seems to have a complex with what others think of him and is shocked when Shinobu Kocho claims that he is hated by many. Other than that though, he doesn't seem to be hurt by his punches.

He has a hard time interacting with others, so he usually keeps his distance. He even goes out of his way to tell Akaza that he hates talking and wants to keep his name to himself, as he believes that names are not meant to be shared.

It is later revealed that Giyu is suffering from an inferiority complex that he has developed since his participation in the final selection. This becomes severe to the point where he considers giving up his position as a Water Pillar until Tanjiro helps him realize that instead of acting on his survivor's guilt, he should cherish his life and continue to live for the people who sacrificed their lives for him. This feeling of guilt strikes again when he thinks that Tanjiro died after the fight against Muzan. Giyu, as he sheds tears, admits that he is still the one who is saved.

Despite his aloof and stoic nature, Giyu shows himself to be protective and caring towards his family and friends. This is first shown when he puts his life on the line for Tanjiro and Nezuko. Giyu has been shown to lose his usual cool and stoic demeanor when those he loves are in danger, as seen when he is very angry at Akaza's attempt to kill Tanjiro and visibly shocked when he learns of Shinobu's death. This is also shown in the fact that he still wears half of Sabito, his deceased best friend and his older sister's haori as a reminder of them. However, Giyu seems to be particular for whom he shows emotions, as he does not seem to react at all when he is informed of the death of Genya Shinazugawa, Muichiro Tokito and Kyojuro Rengoku.


Skills & Competencies

As a Pillar of the Demon Slayer Army, Giyu is a very powerful swordsman. He was able to easily defeat the transformed Spider Demon Father and Rui, the Fifth Lower Moon. During his fight against Akaza, the Third Upper Moon, he was able to hold his own for a while. As for Kyojuro, Akaza is amazed by Giyu's skills to the point that he proposes to the Pillar to transform him into a demon, which Akaza submits only to the most worthy of his opponents. The latter, claims that he has not fought a Water Pillar as skilled as Giyu for fifty years and that Giyu has a very developed sword art.

Natural Abilities

Overdeveloped speed: Giyu is very fast, having been able to tie up Inosuke Hashibira before he even realized what had happened. He was also able to cut off Rui's head in the blink of an eye.
Overdeveloped stamina: Giyu has great stamina. He was able to continue to fight against Akaza with some scratches, knowing that Akaza has a great attack power. After being hit by Muzan's attack and receiving a blood injection, he was able to continue fighting alongside Obanai Iguro, unlike his other fellow Pillar, Mitsuri Kanroji, who was badly affected by the same attack.

Crimson Red Sun Sword Blades: During the fight against Muzan, Sanemi Shinazugawa fiercely clashes her sword with Giyu's, temporarily turning both of their blades into a crimson red sun sword.

Mark of the Demon Slayers: During his battle with Akaza, Giyu awakens his Demon Slayer Mark, which appears as a liquid-like design on his left cheek. When activated, he gains tremendous speed, accuracy and stamina, to the point that he could engage in a long battle against the Third High Moon on level ground. However, he was unable to get close to Akaza's head, which eventually led to his blade being broken, and a near fatal wound if Tanjiro had not intervened.

Sword skills
Breath of Water

It was taught to him by Sakonji Urokodaki, the former Water Pillar before him. The user can increase the amount of oxygen in his blood by controlling his breathing rate, which increases his strength and agility to match that of a demon. He has learned to do the breath of total concentration at all times like all Pillars, further increasing his base strength, speed and endurance. He knows all the techniques of the Breath of Water and has developed an additional form of his own.

Tsutako Tomioka: Tsutako is Giyu's older sister. Little is known about the relationship between Giyu and Tsutako, except that they both had a great and loving sibling relationship. One night, Tsutako hid young Giyu and sacrificed herself to protect him from the demons that were attacking their home. Giyu also cared a lot about his sister, that he felt guilty for her death and thought he was better off dead before Sabito went after him for that reason.
