Best Shinobu Kocho Quotes That Will Remind You Not To Fall For Outer Appearances

Shinobu Kocho is one of the main characters of the anime demon slayer. She used to live with her parents and two sisters. But when her parents were killed by a demon, she joined the demon slayer corporation. To save other people from the fate she suffered. She was a petite woman with a weak-built body. And hence, was called the weakest member of Hashira in terms of strength. But she was an amazing swordsman and had immense stamina. And amazing reflexes.

She was usually friendly and had a smile on her face. But it later turned out that it was a façade. As she was harboring the anger of her parent’s death in her heart for a long time. She used to infect her victim’s demons. With a poison she invented because she could not decapitate their bodies.

Having faced a lot of traumatic events in her early childhood, Shinobu turned cold and ruthless. She disliked demons and hated them. But to honor her sister’s memory, she tried to befriend them. And see them more considerably.

1. “Humans and demons, we both should get along together.” – Shinobu KochoShinobu Kocho1

Shinobu said these lines to Giyu Tomioka while she was going to support other members in fighting. Against the 12 demon moons. Though Shinobu herself hated demons, she said these lines while being considerate of her sister Kanae’s thinking. Kanae was killed by a demon, but she had a positive attitude towards them. Hence Shinobu wanted to honor her memories and thus tried to inculcate her feelings.

2. “I’m the only slayer who cannot cut off a demon’s head in Hashira, but I’m kind of a great person who made poisons to kill demons.” – Shinobu Kocho

Shinobu was the weakest member of Hashira due to her petite figure. Even though she was a swift and skilled swordsman, and had many abilities due to her physical restraint she did not yield the strength to cut off a demon’s head as other Hashira’s, but nevertheless, she compensated for it by her unique abilities.

She usually injects dem0ns with poison to kill them.

3. “Yes, I am angry, Tanjiro. I’ve been angry the whole time. My parents were killed. My sister was killed. & My disciples, except Kanawo, were killed. They must have lived calm lives with their families if their families weren’t killed by demons. Pisses me off. Screw you, idiot. Why my poisons don’t work on you, bas***d!” – Shinobu Kocho

Despite always having a smile on her face, Shinobu was always angry on the inside and carried a great rage within her. The cause of this hatred towards demons was because her sister, whom she loved dearly, and her family were killed by a demon when she was young, and hence, she grew up with only a feeling of hatred and revenge in her heart.

She feels that if the demons didn’t kill those humans, they might have a normal, happy life, just like her family.

4. “I once believed that the road of happiness continued forever and ever into the distance. When it was destroyed, I realized for the first time that it lies upon a thin sheet of glass. And just as we were saved, there were those whose happiness hasn’t yet been destroyed. So, I wanted to get stronger and protect them. That’s what we promised each other. Even if we’re weak and can’t cut off demon heads, if we defeat one demon, we can save dozens of people. And if we can defeat an Upper-Rank Kizuki, we can save hundreds. It isn’t about whether we can or cannot do it. There are things we have to do.” – Shinobu Kocho

Shinobu had a rather sad childhood and a traumatic storyline. Her parents and sister were killed by a demon when she was young, and she has carried the anger toward demons ever since. Almost all of us believe in “happy ever after” until that dream is somehow shattered because of some incident, the same happened in the case of Shinobu.

Having a perfect family, she believed in that dream too, but once that was destroyed, she understood that happiness is just as fragile as a piece of glass, which can be shattered at any moment, but she knows that there are others like her who need saving.

Even though she could not save her own family, she could save others who might go through the same ordeal if no one helped them, and thus, she took upon herself this role of demon slaying, even though she was not as physically powerful as others.

5. “How can you feel sorry for something that’s killed, humans? I’ve never heard of anything so absurd. But if that was how my sister truly felt, then I must carry it on. If there’s a way not to kill these pitiful demons, I have to keep trying to come up with it. Without ever extinguishing the smile my sister said she loved.” – Shinobu Kocho
