Why is Tanjiro’s Head so Hard?

Kamado Tanjiro's head

The head of Tanjiro is one of the most dangerous weapons in the Demon Slayer universe. Tanjiro has humiliated several characters using his powerful headbutts. But why is Tanjiro’s head so hard anyway?

The 10th episode of the Entertainment District arc has finally given the answer.

In this blog, we will see why the main character’s head is so tough and who has he headbutted in the past.

Pro tip: Read the text in bold if you have less time.

Kie Kamado is the Answer

Wait, what? Are you wondering who is Kie Kamado?

Well, that’s Tanjiro’s mother. And she is the only reason why Tanjiro’s head is so hard.

In the last part of episode 10 of Demon Slayer Season 2, “Taisho secret” explained by Nezuko, informed us that her mother (Kie Kamado) had a really hard head. She supported this statement by telling when she was younger, her mother took down a wild boar by headbutting it!

How crazy is that!

Kie Kamado headbutting a wild boar (Inosuke?)

This simply explains why Tanjiro has a hard head.

There is actually no concrete reason other than this explaining why Tanjiro’s head is the way it is. The story hasn’t put much focus on this part really deeply.

But yeah, the consequences after getting headbutted by Tanjiro is not good by any means.

Who has Tanjiro headbutted?

In the anime series so far, the kind protagonist has headbutted the likes of

  • Sanemi Shinazugawa (Wind Hashira)
  • Gyutaro (Upper Moon 6)
  • Hashibira Inosuke
  • Shinjuro Rengoku (Former Flame Hashira) – Father of Rengoku Kyojuro

He also tried to headbutt Uzui Tengen (Sound Hashira) but failed. It seems like Uzui is the only one who escaped from the wrath of Tanjiro’s head.

Muzan vs Tanjiro’s head: Who is Stronger?

It can’t be denied that Muzan is really strong as he humiliated Akaza just by using his curse. But can he beat Tanjiro’s hard head?

What do you think? Tell me in the comments!

Until you write an answer to this question, have a look regarding who wins this one on one fight, Rengoku or Gyutaro?
