Although famous for its unique appearance, many fans of this anime are curious about the true identity of Sakonji Urokodaki. Because he always wears a mask and never shows his real face, even until the Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba manga series ends. But on several occasions, Tanjiro revealed that Urokodaki's real face actually looks soft and calm. Very different from his very assertive and disciplined personality.
A gentle and loving figure
Urokodaki's own body looks not too tall, with white hair like the elderly in general, while in his youth it was known that Urokodaki's hair was actually black. Although at the beginning of the Demon Slayer anime series, Urokodaki is shown to look like a tough and grumpy old man, actually he is a gentle and compassionate figure.
A very disciplined teacher
He trained his students very disciplined and hard. But he actually cared deeply about his students and looked at them as his own family. This is seen when he fully believes that Nezuko is a demon who will not eat humans, and he also believes that Tanjiro will find a cure for his sister.
Defending Tanjiro and Nezuko
When Tanjiro and Nezuko are arrested and tried by the Hashira, it turns out that Urokodaki has written to Kagaya Ubuyashiki to trust Tanjiro and Nezuko, and even Urokodaki dares to give his life as collateral.
Have a keen sense of smell
In addition, Urokodaki also has a very sharp sense of smell, even known to have a sharper sense of smell than Tanjiro.
The reason Urodoki always wears a mask
One interesting fact revealed that the real reason Urokodaki always wears a mask is that in ancient times when he often fought against demons, demons often insulted Urokodaki's face that was too soft and not scary.
During the Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba series that lasted until the manga ended, Urokodaki was an important and influential figure in the story, where he had been Tanjiro's teacher and instilled intuition in Nezuko not to eat humans. In addition, in the last fight, Urokodaki was responsible for protecting Nezuko's body which was then the target of Muzan, and he also gave the drug Tamayo to Nezuko so that Nezuko could return to being human.
