List of Breathing Techniques of Demon Slayer

[ADS] Advertisement

Do you know the power and name of all forms of breath of each type in Demon Slayer or Kimetsu no Yaiba? In this article we will list all the breathing techniques presented in the anime and manga.

It is worth remembering that some were not presented either in the anime or in the manga, so despite the number of forms of each category of breathing, we will not have the name of all of them.

The names of the breathing forms of Kimetsu no yaiba will first be in romaji, then in ideograms with the reading in furigana followed by a basic translation.

The numbering of breath forms in Japanese

Those who have a basic knowledge of Japanese can count from one to ten and even recognize the characters [一二三四五六七八九十], but in Kimetsu no Yaiba breathing forms this is quite different.

Although the reading and pronunciation of the numbers of the forms is practically the same, old ideograms are used to number. Throughout the article you will find different ideograms commonly used in old documents.

  • First Form – [壱ノ型] – Ichi no Kata;
  • Second Form – [弐ノ型] – Ni no Kata;
  • Third Form – [参ノ型] – San no Kata;
  • Fourth Form – [肆ノ型] – Shi no Kata;
  • Fifth Form -[伍ノ型] = Go no Kata;
  • Sixth Form – [陸ノ型] – Roku no Kata;
  • Seventh Form – [漆ノ型] – Nana no Kata
  • Eighth Form – [捌ノ型] – Hachi no Kata;
  • Ninth Form – [玖ノ型] – Ku no Kata;
  • Tenth Form – [拾ノ型] – Jyuu no Kata;
  • Eleventh Form – [拾壱ノ型] Jyuu ichi no Kata;

The first character in the list above represents the number. The [ノ] is the particle [の] only written in katakana. The last character [型] means shape and style.
