From the beginning of Demon Slayer, it has been emphasized that Nezuko is a unique demon. Despite being influenced by Muzan Kibutsuji, Nezuko has abilities that even Muzan does not have, like sunlight resistance. She also has an awakened form and immense regeneration which makes her one of the strongest demons.

One of the iconic abilities that Nezuko has is size alteration. It allows her to change her size and height. She can look like a small child that can fit a basket or enlarge herself to be big enough to compete with other demons.

Fans love this ability as they can see different versions of Nezuko. Some use it for humor while some fans think that this ability gave her an advantage as a demon. Her size alteration ability helped her travel inside the box without being worrying about sunlight.

The size alteration ability was first introduced in the first episode when Nezuko attacked Tanjiro. Her size grew like an average adult man. She returned to her original size after Giyu knocked her down to the ground.

Throughout the series, it has appeared that Nezuko’s size changes depending on her instinct and desires. If fans will look back on what happened during the first episode, Nezuko couldn’t control herself. Her power was overwhelming which explained her adult man transformation. Meanwhile, the small version of Nezuko appeared whenever she is in defense and protect mode.

She uses this version whenever she needs to run away from other demon slayers or when she needs to fit in the wooden backpack. For her original size, she is mostly in this form after she vowed to herself that she would never harm humans. In this version, she shows that she is not a scary demon and can resemble a normal human girl so she would not scare other humans.

Nezuko’s size alternation ability is truly one of the interesting powers in Demon Slayer. It gives her an advantage against her enemies and even helps her travel with her brother safely.
