This sword is a replica of Giyu TomiokaNichirin Katanasword. His katana is in a shade of dark blue, complementing his breathing style, Water Breathing. The tsuba is hexagonal shaped with a bronze core and with an overlapping red border and his scabbard is black in color. On the side of his katana, the words "Destroy Demons" are carved.
Water Breathing: Giyu has completely mastered this breathing style, becoming arguably the most powerful and skilled user of this breathing style, to the point it even impressed Upper Rank 3,Akaza. Furthermore, Giyu created an entirely new form he namedEleventh Form: Dead Calm.
First Form: Water Surface Slash: The user generates enough momentum to create a powerful single concentrated slash.
Second Form: Water Wheel: The user leaps and vertically spins forward in the air while releasing a flowing attack in a circular motion.
Third Form: Flowing Dance: The user swings and bends their blade in a winding motion along with their body and dances in a flowing pattern, slicing everything in its path.
Fourth Form: Striking Tide: The user makes multiple consecutive slashes while twisting their body and sword in a flowing fashion to deliver multiple blows simultaneously.
Fifth Form: Blessed Rain After the Drought: The user changes the grip on their sword and decapitates the opponent in a single flowing strike that causes little to no pain. It is a “sword strike of kindness” used when the enemy willingly surrenders.
Sixth Form: Whirlpool: The user fiercely twists their upper and lower body, creating a whirlpool of air that cuts anything caught in it. Its effect and efficiently is enhanced underwater, where the user can draw water around their weapon to enhance their slashes.
Seventh Form: Drop Ripple Thrust: The user performs a fast and accurate stab, capable of reducing the impact of a moving target.
Eighth Form: Waterfall Basin: The user cuts the target vertically in a flowing motion which is most effective when they are falling downward.
Ninth Form: Splashing Water Flow: The user changes their footwork in a way that minimizes the landing time and surface needed when landing, allowing the user to move without limits. Ideal when fighting in a place with no solid foothold.
Tenth Form: Constant Flux: The user performs a continuous flowing attack which seemingly takes the form of a water dragon that increases in strength and power with each rotation due to momentum.
Eleventh Form: Dead Calm: The personal creation of the current WaterHashira,Giyu Tomioka. The user ceases all body movements and enters a state of complete tranquility, deflecting, blocking and cutting any incoming attacks with imperceptible speed with his blade. However, its effectiveness is limited as fast and numerous attacks can break through.
