Tengen Uzui first appeared in Demon Slayer’s Hashira Meeting. Uzui, just like other Hashira, is initially antagonistic to the central protagonist Tanjiro Kamado. But as the series, an understanding is developed between the warden who wields a sound as well as the Kamado brothers. He is a key character in the sequence of events in the Entertainment District arc, where the three wives from the ninja world team up together with Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Nezuko to take on two of the upper ranks of the Twelve Kizuki, Daki, and Gyutaro. The arc is one of the highlights of the Demon Slayer manga. Studio Ufotable’s animated adaptation has been praised for its stunning animation and intricate fighting choreography.
