Demon Slayer: 5 Anime Villains Rui Could Defeat (& 5 He Would Lose To)

Demon Slayer Updates: Like few other anime villains have ever had before, the demons that Tanjiro and Nezuko face in Demon Slayer have managed to gain fans’ sympathy.

Between Nezuko, Lady Tamayo, and Rui, it is very clear that in the realm of the Demon Slayer, even demons deserve some attention. Rui is easily the most villainous of these three distinct characters. Rui taunts, endangers, and almost kills the characters whom fans of the series have come to enjoy the most during his tenure on television.

Demon Slayer: The main characters, categorized by preferences

Yet, in a way that few other anime villains ever do, Rui has continued to win fans’ sympathy. With this in mind, imagining Rui as a hero, facing off against other antagonists in the same way anime characters so frequently do, becomes an enjoyable mental exercise.

The list matches Rui against five anime monsters he would be able to beat and five that would cause him to undergo a few training arcs before a real battle could take place.

With His Blood Demon Art, Rui Beats Isabella (The Promised Neverland)

Isabella may be one of the most hideous anime villains ever on TV, but Rui is not far away. While he is the lesser of 12 demon moons, his interaction with spiders will give the audience a chill. Tanjiro and his friends are working together to ruin the great Devil.
Rui never shows any more strength in terms of physical strength than Isabella does in The Promised Neverland’s first season. Even, Rui is in possession of some powerful magic of blood that he might use to quickly dismember the resident mother of Grace Field House.

Frieza (Dragon Ball) His Strong Kii beats Ruiss

Demon Slayer

Throughout the extended run of the Dragon Ball series, Frieza has evolved tremendously as a warrior. In fact, since his debut in Dragon Ball Z, his power as a fighter can be traced through the several different character designs that he has had.

Rui Defeats Reiner With His ODM-Like Mobility (Attack On Titan)

Demon Slayer

While it is not completely clear if, with his demon blood magic art, Rui will be able to cut through the shell of the Armoured Titan, Reiner’s habit of jumping headfirst into most of his conflicts would certainly place him at a disadvantage against Rui.

In the first season of Demon Slayer, Rui reveals the ability to emulate the force of flight using his websites. The way he flies through the air is similar to how, with their ODM gear, Mikasa and Levi are able to imitate flight.

Through this, Rui will navigate his way through the body of the armored titan and use his webs to break through the vulnerable points in the armor of Reiner.

Meruem defeats Rui with his Nen & brute power (Hunter X Hunter)

Demon Slayer

To stop Rui’s blood magic art from making any real effect in the battle against these two anime antagonists, the combination of Meruem’s physical toughness and Nen should be enough.

Rui Defeats Grell (Black Butler) With His Attack Range Superior

Demon Slayer

In their capacity to slash through virtually anything, Rui’s demon blood art and Grell’s chainsaw scythe are identical. The only distinction between the two arms is the versatility of the spider web of Rui.

With his swordsmanship, Utsuro (Gintama) defeats Rui

Demon Slayer

In Gintama, the Samurai share a lot with the demon slayers wandering around Japan in Demon Slayer. Utsuro could comfortably beat Rui as long as he had access to a nichirin blade, just as Rui was beheaded in large part because of his excellent swordsmanship by Giyu Tomioka.

Tsukasa (Dr. Stone) is defeated by Rui With his Supernatural Power

Demon Slayer

Without a doubt, Tsukasa is an aggressive and dangerous adversary in Dr. Stone’s universe, but if the show’s science-centric plotting teaches audiences something, it should be that nothing other than an extraordinarily powerful human is the greatest high school primate.

With his pace, power, & perseverance, Garou (One-Punch Man) beats Rui

Demon Slayer

Garou is one of the greatest villains of anime introduced during the last decade. Fans celebrate One-Punch Man in large part because Saitama is able to dispatch even the most powerful villains in a single blow easily. Though Garou is different.

Rui Beats Griffith (Berserk) With His “Family” strength

Demon Slayer

When setting up its fighting scenes, Berserk is close to Demon Slayer in its emphasis on the art of swordsmanship. Though both shows lean into the mystical at times, the toughest swordsman wins most of the fights.

Griffith is still a powerful swordsman, but if he couldn’t tap into the strength he acquired after converting to Femto, Rui would definitely be able to defeat him with his demon blood magic art.

With His Anti-Magic, Liebe (Black Clover) beats Rui

Demon Slayer
The demon who gives Black Clover’s protagonist his power is better prepared to cope with Rui. Liebe can make Rui sweat without even having to lift a sword against him, just like Shinobu, who was able to invent a toxin that helps her to take demons off balance.

In Black Clover, the reason Asta is so powerful is primarily due to the fact that Liebe has given him his anti-magic powers. Rui would be nothing more than an angry little boy if Liebe could bring his anti-magic into the realm of the Demon Slayer.
