One Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba artwork has gone viral for imagining Kyojuro Rengoku's demonic form! While he was first introduced at the tail end of the first season along with the other Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira, properly took center stage during the events of Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train. Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado, Inosuke Hashibira, and Zenitsu Agatsuma boarded the titular train at the final moments of the anime's first season, and the movie confirmed that they were there to support Rengoku is saving people from disappearing on this mysterious train.
At the climax of the film Rengoku finds himself facing off against Akaza, the first of the Upper Moons that we have actually seen in action in the series. Akaza recognizes Rengoku's strength and offers him the chance to become a demon (and thus even stronger), but Rengoku refuses. Artist @rorokonaa picked up on that idea and imagined what it would look like if Rengoku really did accept the offer to become a demon. Going viral with Demon Slayer fans on Twitter, you can check it out the awesome demonic makeover below:
