However, Tanjiro is not a descendant of Yoriichi Tsukiguni. Tanjiro is the descendant of someone who knew Yoriichi personally and was a good friend of his as well. Sumiyoshi was rescued by Yoriichi when a demon threatened his life. Since then Yoriichi often met him and they became close acquaintances.
It appears to be nothing more than a simple coincidence that the Kamado men have the same auburn hair as Yoriichi, and the Hanafuda Earrings they've passed down that Tanjiro now wears are the very pair once worn by Yoriichi himself.
Tanjuro Kamado was the name of Tanjiro Kamado's father. He passed away before the event of the main story of the Demon Slayer. It is not mentioned how long Tanjuro had passed before the story, but in several flashback scenes, we can see him interacting with a younger Tanjiro.
Even 400 years later, Muzan's fear of Yoriichi remained fully intact, as simply laying eyes on Tanjiro's hanafuda earrings caused him to recall their clash.
Kokushibo is reserved, silent, and aloof, maintaining an aura of unnerving tranquility and mystery that compliments his position as Upper Rank One.
But if we are talking about the human form, then it's a big fat NO, because Tanjiro has just mastered the Sun Breathing whereas Yoriichi is the inventor of it, also he's way more powerful and holds an unfathomable battle intellect, larger than any Demon Slayer in history, so in conclusion, no one is remotely close to ...
It was Yoriichi's sword, he found it inside Yoriichi Type Zero doll when he destroy the head. And then hotaru took the sword to fix it. Tanjiro also use Kyojuro's tsuba in this sword.
In the Anime
Tanjiro's ancestor was a good friend of Yoriichi and arguably was one of his only true friends. Therefore Yoriichi gave the earrings as a gift, and since then they have been passed down the generations until they reached Tanjiro.
No, they are not related. Tanjiro, by PURE COINCIDENCE, heavily resembles Yoriichi Tsugikuni, the creator of Breath swordsmanship, the only other person to use Sun Breathing, and the only person Muzan ever feared.
Yoriichi Type Zero ( 緑 より 壱 いち 零 ぜろ 式 しき , Yoriichi Zeroshiki?) is a Battle Doll constructed by Kotetsu's ancestors during the Sengoku Era.
Tanjiro certainly did a lot of good with his Water Breathing techniques, but his ability to use Sun Breathing both gives him an edge in battle and allows him to stand out among the incredibly powerful Hashira he fights alongside.
The black blade represents the Sun and is surrounded by prejudice and misconceptions, as historically every demon slayer who held it lived a short life. This could mean that Tanjirou is destined to break the pattern and set a new legend for black Nichirin blades in the Demon Slayer universe.
It was after Daki unleashed an attack and harmed multiple people, Tanjiro was extremely angry at this that his eyes were turning blood-shot red.
Unlike all other Marks users in his era, Yoriichi was able to defy fate and lived to about 85 years of age.
When Tanjiro first got his Nichirin Sword on Demon Slayer, and it changed color to match the personality of its user like all Nichirin weapons do, many fans were surprised that Tanjiro's katana turned black.
It involves covering a Nichirin Sword with Nezuko Kamado's Exploding Blood to raise its temperature to the point it turns bright red.
This color was first discovered by Yoriichi Tsugikuni when he became a Demon Slayer due to his Sun Breathing. In fact, it is a category of Yoriichi's gifted powers and abilities, which is meant to hamper the regeneration of Demons.
Case in point: he was the only one who could single-handedly take on Muzan and drive him to a corner. Yoriichi would be able to defeat every single Hashira on this list without breaking a sweat. Such was his reputation and skill in swordsmanship.
Mitsuri Kanroji is another Hashira who Tanjiro could definitely beat in Demon Slayer. Mitsuri's main trick up her sleeve is her muscle composition, which makes her muscles eight times denser than that of a normal human's. In other words, she's incredibly strong and powerful, and tough with plenty of endurance as well.
Muzan does this to continue his demon legacy and live in this world even after being dead. He chooses Tanjiro over everyone else as he considers him the perfect one to carry on his legacy. Muzan passes on his feelings and powers to Tanjiro, and he successfully turnsTanjiro into the new Demon King.
That being said, Tanjiro's rank is unknown, and his rank was last revealed in the Entertainment District arc. In that arc, they were at Kanoe, which is fourth from the bottom. Since Kiriya Ubuyashiki announced the disbanding of the organization, Tanjiro doesn't get the chance to become a Hashira.
Sakonji Urokodaki is one of the playable characters in Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles. A former member of the Demon Slayer Corps, Urokodaki is Tanjiro's master and he was also the master of Sabito and Makomo before they died.
Fortunately, Zenitsu was able to single handedly beat the Upper Moon 6. Not only did he defeat the demon, he also created a seventh form called the Flaming Thunder God. These are the demons who have been given the title of Upper Moon 6 in Demon Slayer.
Black. Toho Co., Ltd. Black is the most mysterious color of all the blades, and is held by the main character, Tanjiro. It is a rare blade and represents the sun; it also holds a theory that the demon slayers who own this sword are not to live a long life.
