Demon Slayer Ranks: Lowest to Highest Explained, Which is Worst and Best?

In Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Tanjiro joined the Demon Slayer Corps, whose goal is to protect humans from demons, in the hopes to find a cure for his sister, Nezuko. The organization has 10 ranks. What are these ranks in Demon Slayer and which ranks are the best and worst?

Anyone can join the Demon Slayer Corps but they must pass the Final Selection first. It is a test or an entrance exam in which participants must survive for seven days on a mountain filled with demons.

They won’t be getting any help from the outside world. Once they pass the exam, they will be able to join the organization wherein they will be separated into different ranks.

As mentioned, there are 10 ranks in the Demon Slayer Corps. After the demon slayer passes the Final Selection, he or she will be given a standard uniform, choose an ore for their sword, and a talking bird for communication.

He or she is automatically placed in the lowest rank, which is Mizunoto. At the lowest rank, those in this category are paid around 200,000 yen, and the salary increases as they get promoted. 

Below are the ranks available from lowest to highest:

  • Mizunoto
  • Mizunoe
  • Kanoto
  • Kanoe
  • Tsuchinoto
  • Tsuchinoe
  • Hinoto
  • Hinoe
  • Kinoto
  • Kinoe

To get a higher rank, demon slayers must complete their missions.

Demon slayers can check their rank through their hands by using a process called Wisteria Flower Engraving. All they need to do is state the password and their arm will reveal their status.

Another rank available is the Hashira. It is comprised of elite individuals who were able to either kill 50 demons or one of the 12 Demon Moons as a Kinoe. Hashira are paid as much as they want.

Of course, the worst would be Mizunoto as it is the lowest rank. The rank also gets the lowest pay.

The best rank would be the Hashira as it comes with several benefits like getting paid how much they desire, having a specific region to monitor, and being assigned to missions that were not completed by lower ranks, which means they are uncommon.

But being a Hashira is not that easy as they get the more dangerous missions which mean stronger demons to defeat.
