Having supernatural abilities might be one of the most common wishes we have on our bucket lists. But what if you’ll be a demon in exchange for it? Would you still take it?
Demon Slayer won’t be complete without the demons, and each has unique abilities that’ll make your skin crawl. But first, let’s learn about Blood Demon Art and its origin.
What is a Blood Demon Art?
When a demon eats humans, it develops its powers. Becoming stronger eventually results in supernatural abilities known as Blood Demon Art.
Each Blood Demon Art is unique. It can be based on a demon’s past, hobbies, or jobs in their former human lives.
More so, it doesn’t only manifest a single ability; it can reproduce multiples of it, making the demon untouchable and indestructible.
