Beginning of Nezuko’s Transformation

Nezuko's Early Struggle as a Demon

In the Swordsmith Village Arc, Nezuko and Tanjiro visit a village of swordsmiths. This arc is pivotal for Nezuko as a demon. After big events involving the demon siblings Gyutaro and Daki, the demon king Muzan Kibutsuji gets angry that Gyutaro died. He sends powerful demons like Gyokko and Hantengu to fight the Demon Slayers. This sets up important battles and events for Nezuko’s story.


While in the village, Tanjiro meets the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji. He learns about a secret weapon that could help him. This arc has big fights and reveals that move the story forward. They show the demon hunters’ ongoing struggle against Muzan’s forces.

Lady Tamayo’s Vital Role and Medicine

Lady Tamayo plays a key role in turning Nezuko back into a human. She makes a medicine that can reverse the demon transformation. This medicine was developed from Muzan Kibutsuji’s blood. It starts Nezuko’s slow change back to human. At first, there were doubts it would work. But the medicine gradually shows the impact, marking an important step in Nezuko’s transformation.

During the battle of Tanjiro and Gyutaro, Nezujo first time experienced the sun after becoming the demon. Tanjiro tried to protect her but she pushed Tanjiro to kill the Upper Moon demon first. Even though Tanjiro killed Gyutaro, he was crying because Nezuko survived the sun even after getting the burn. Even though she is still a demon, it gives a hint about how she will become human again

In Infinity Castle, Nezuko begins turning back into a human. This is important because it starts her change back. Sakonji Urokodaki helps in this phase. He gives Nezuko special medicine from Tamayo to make her human again. But it doesn’t work right away. At first, Nezuko struggles with the medicine. She gets sick and sleeps a lot.

After receiving the medicine, Nezuko becomes ill and is taken care of by Sakonji Urokodaki. During this period, she sleeps for an extended time, which is crucial for her recovery process.

Nezuko’s change back to human happens slowly over some chapters. In Chapter 185, Nezuko runs away after waking up. It seems like the medicine didn’t work. But later in Chapter 195, an important sign of change happens: one of Nezuko’s eyes turns normal. This shows the medicine is working, but slowly. Finally, in Chapter 196, Nezuko fully transforms back into a human.

Nezuko’s Memories and How They Impact Her

How did nezuko survive the sun?

Nezuko’s memories are very important in her journey from demon back to human in Demon Slayer. At first, as a demon, she loses most of her human memories. She only keeps memories of her family. This contributes to her childlike behavior and influences what she does in the series. Nezuko’s unique ability to resist eating humans, unlike other demons, comes from her strong connection to and need to protect her family, especially Tanjiro.

During her change back to human, particularly in the Swordsmith Village Arc, Nezuko starts to regain more of her memories. This helps her gradually become human again. She can speak again, which she had lost as a demon. This shows she is overcoming her monster side and can survive in sunlight. Being able to speak again is symbolic. It represents Nezuko’s determination to hold on to her humanity against all odds. Regaining her speech coincides with her retrieving memories and maturing to her pre-demon level.


Nezuko’s transformation in “Demon Slayer” shows resilience, inner strength, and the power of human bonds. Her journey has struggled against her demon nature. But it’s her human memories and tie to Tanjiro that anchor her and lead her back to being human. Nezuko evolving from a demon with limited abilities and memory to a human regaining speech and memories displays the power within and family ties to conquer even the biggest challenges.
