10 Best Techniques used by Tanjiro
According to Cbr.com, there are a total of Ten forms Tanjiro used to defeat Demon’s and starting from the first form.
1. First Form: Water Surface Slash
This form stands for a swordsman’s strength into a strong horizontal slash. Its simplicity should not be mistaken for weakness and more powerful than second. As long as Tanjiro manages to put more concentration the water surface slash is capable of cutting through the thickest of necks.
2. Second Form: Water Wheel technique
This form is also the same as the first form that Tanjiro updated himself. In this Technique, Tanjiro uses a lateral water wheel to remove the demon’s head with a horizontal strike more powerfully than the first form.
3. Third form: Flowing Dance
This Technique concentrates more on breathing and concentration that is what makes the Water Breathing Techniques so powerful. In just one flowing dance, masters of this technique can strike through multiple objects or enemies without using much amount of energy. Even without the animation that follows Tanjiro’s sword during this technique, the way he swiftly guides his sword through the air is beautiful and satisfying.
4. Fourth Form: Striking Tide
The form is used to resemble the flow of a more powerful tide, and although Tanjiro uses only one rotation, the fourth form may give Tanjiro the power to float through the battlefield like Levi in Attack on Titan.
5. Fifth Form: Blessed Rain After the Drought
This form comes when Tanjiro switches from the first to the fifth form while battling with Mother of Spider Demon, it seems to be an act of mercy. Tanjiro is well-known for his ability to empathize with the demons even after witnessing them commit atrocities.
6. Sixth Form: Whirlpool
Tanjiro introduces the true power of the sixth form while fighting inside the water by just creating a literal whirlpool that pulled two demons directly into his blade. When combined with the footwork of the third form, this ability is able to create a whirlpool effect on land as well. At last, Tanjiro combines the sixth and third forms in order to redirect a demon’s magic projectiles.
7. Seventh Form: Piercing Rain Drop
The Seventh Water Breathing Form goes by two different names, but its utility in combat remains the same. Tanjiro introduces the Seventh Form as the fastest thrusting technique of all the water-breathing forms.
8. Eighth Form: Waterfall Basin
Waterfall Basin Technique is one of Tanjiro’s best AoE attacks. Tanjiro can use the eighth form to kill multiple enemies with a single powerful attack. Of all of Tanjiro’s water-breathing techniques, this one may be the most unrealistic, as it defies the power of gravity badly.
9. Ninth Form: Splashing Water Flow
Tanjiro uses this ability to reduce the landing area of his steps. He uses this technique to fight against the demon inside the room. When the floor and ceiling were rotating, he uses the Ninth Form to flow through the room without having to worry about losing his balance.
10. Tenth Form: Constant Flux
As Tanjiro sprints through the battlefield, slicing through Rui’s webs with each rotation of his body, his strikes continue to build strength as he flows closer to his enemy. It seems that if given the right amount of distance, Tanjiro’s sword could cut through anything by taking advantage of constant flux.
