“Do I look like someone with any talent? […] See, this country is vast. It’s teeming with people who’d blow your mind. Some are complete enigmas. Some can take up a sword and become a Hashira in two months. Me, chosen? Don’t give me that crap! Just how many lives do you think I’ve let slip through my fingers until now?”

Tengen Uzui Fight


Tengen is a person that always wants to be “flamboyant” and needs everything to be flashy and outstanding all the time. He is funny most of the time but in the fight, he knows what to do. As a trainer, he harshly deals during the Hashira Training Arc and abuses them for the reason of having difficulties when they could not survive the stamina training.

Uzui usually talks boastfully, in front of Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke he always makes himself in a big and high place while making them or calling them trash. He also asks a lot, he asked those 3 to be like him by being humor and stooping down to him, between his demands, asking Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke to be dogs when he says it or even monkeys, whenever he tells them to be something they must do what he says.
