Inosuke appearance

Inosuke is a man in his 20s with average height and pale skin with a well-built and toned physique for his age, sporting big, defined muscles, especially over his stomach and upper arms. 

His face tells a completely different story. He has an extremely beautiful and feminine look, with big eyes, framed by a plethora of eyelashes long and long Irises are dark to light green, thin eyebrows, and what looks like a tiny, well-mannered mouth.

His long, black hair extends just above the shoulders, before fading to blue towards the tips, creating an uneven and unruly fringe that falls right above his eyes. It puffs out, before curling and falling to the forehead.

Inosuke wears an altered version of the traditional Demon Slayer uniform that consists of baggy hakama trousers with a tinted dark gray-blue that he wears around his hips by an oversized belt of soft brown deer fur. 

Contrary to his travel group of companions, Inosuke does not wear haori. The typical leg wraps made of cloth are replaced with what appear to be knee-high socks made of the hide of bears that show his toes and heels as well as the soles of the sandals worn by his feet.

The most distinctive feature of his is the hollowed-out, gray boar’s head that he wears to hide his own eyes, which he has altered so that he can see when wearing it that has been found to belong to the mother of his late adoptive boar.


Inosuke personality

Inosuke is a very impulsive and confident young man who believes that he is the best fighter in any situation, continually challenging all people he meets and wishing that others respect and praise his ability. 

The constant desire for the top spot is a reason for Inosuke to be quite controversial, since he regularly will try to persuade others, particularly Tanjiro Kamado, to fight him, though when it comes to this latter case, he generally does not succeed due to his obliviously gentle nature.

Inosuke is a bit angry side to his personality and is particularly vengeful when people he loves are injured. He also directly challenged Muzan and demanded that he pay for his sins by murdering and nearly killing each of the Demon Slayers.

Due to his being raised by boars, Inosuke is also shown to have a lack of understanding of human relationships. At least at the moment of his debut since he appears to often believe that people who come near him are trying to get him killed and does not seem to comprehend the kindness shown by others. 

Books Worth Reading:

He is unable to write or read and is unable to pronounce people’s names correctly, like saying Monchiro rather than Tanjiro and Monitsu rather than Zenitsu. He is sometimes very unkind, with no intention of treating anyone as if they were enemies initially.

As the story unfolds, Inosuke is influenced more and more by Tanjiro’s methods and grows more used to generosity and affection, and can recognize the worthiness of other people than himself. He develops feelings of affection for Tanjiro as well as Zenitsu Agatsuma even though he maintains his pride and constant desire to be praised. 

He also learns to think more carefully when fighting by employing more sophisticated tactics that he learned from experienced Demon Slayers, and not jumping into fights without taking into account his thinking.

Inosuke has succeeded in employing successfully using the Repetitive Action technique to move a huge boulder.

why does inosuke wear a boar mask

You have often seen Insouke wearing a Boar Hide or mask whatever you like to call it. Many people think that the boar mask is only for camouflage but there is a deeper story and reason behind this.

We all know that Inosuke was an orpahn and grew up in the mountains with wild boars. He even considers one wild boar his mother who took care of him.

It is believed that the boar mask he wears is of his late adoptive wild boar mother. This could be the reason why he always wears it.


One more reason behind wearing a boar mask is that he doesn’t want people to look into his face while he is crying or he is happy. That is why he always hides it with a boar mask.
