It was during this era when a group of humans was carrying out the acts of slaying demons and cleaning the population of harmful demons. Muzan played the most crucial role in the creation of these demons. It was he who turned humans into demons by forcefully administering his ‘demon’ blood into the bloodstreams of the said humans. As a result, he created a huge army of demons that went on massacring the human population of the area. 

Tanjiro Kamado, who is a humble teenager in a village and also our hero, encounters this malicious devil when he discovers his family being mercilessly killed one day after returning from work. The demons did not even leave Tanjiro’s little sister; she was transformed into a demon, but she was different from the conventional demons. In the promise of killing Muzan one day, he is taken up by the head of the group of Demon Slayers. This becomes the starting point of his journey. 

Now, coming to the Final Battle Arc of the manga, the killing of Muzan is the most important episode. Muzan is such a powerful demon that he cannot be killed by any one of the demon slayers. In order to kill him, everybody has to work together in unity. 

Everyone, who was fighting against Muzan, had to incorporate massive attacks on him to finish him once and for all. When Muzan saw that he was losing his strength, he administered his ‘demon’ blood into Tanjiro in hopes of him becoming the new powerful demon king after Muzan dies. Muzan knew that his end was near. By the end of the battle, he was weakened by everybody. Eventually, Muzan perished under the sunlight.

As it is known that demons get killed when they are decapitated, when poisoned with the fluids of Wisteria flowers, or when they are exposed to sunlight. Muzan faced his death when he was weakened by the attacks of the demon slayers and brought under the sunlight. 

In short, it can be concluded that Muzan was not killed by any one demon slayer. He was weakened by all of them, mainly our hero Tanjiro, and he died under sunlight which is his arch enemy above all. No matter how powerful he became, he could never survive under sunlight which was his weakest point. Hence, the manga came to an end with Muzan being killed and everybody rejoicing days happily without the existence of demons any longer.
