Minecraft supports a plethora of mods that can be installed. These are third-party codes that add new features or significantly alter existing ones, resulting in an entirely new gameplay experience. When players get tired of playing the vanilla version, they can switch to the modded version. 'Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)' is one of the most popular mods available.
Demon Slayer is one of the most well-known Japanese anime series of all time. Millions of people have fallen in love with the series. It is safe to assume that some of them are Minecraft fans. As a result, with over four million downloads on CurseForge, this mod has done exceptionally well in the community.
Everything to know about the Demon Slayer mod for Minecraft
How to download and install the Demon Slayer mod?
To install this mod, players must first install the official CurseForge app, which handles all modded game versions and even instals Forge and Fabric APIs. Look for the 'CurseForge app for Minecraft' and download the software from the first website you find. Then, install and launch the app.
Find the sandbox game and create a new profile with the 1.16.5 game version once the app has opened. Remember to specify the game version, as the mod only works with 1.16.5. After creating the profile, go to 'Add more content' and look for 'Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)' in the mod list.
Install the app and let it download and install the mod onto the modded game version. When you're finished, press 'Play' to open a secondary official game launcher, which will launch the modded game version.
How to become a Demon Slayer and progress further
The creators wrote about how players can become a Slayer or a Demon in Minecraft on the main mod page on CurseForge. To become a Slayer, players must either kill a Demon or craft a sun sword (Nichirin Sword).
Once a Demon Slayer, players must follow the custom advancements added to the mod in order to progress further in the quest.

Similar to becoming a Slayer, players can also choose to become a Demon in the modded game by finding a special ore called 'Muzan Blood Ore". Hence, both the Demons and Slayers have different questlines.
Once players become demons, they can get different demonic power packs by killing other demons in the wild. Furthermore, they will need to consume blood in order to increase their level. Three drops of blood will increase one level in the game.
Custom key binds
Along with all the new features, the mod even has some custom key binds that players must know in order to use special abilities and combat tactics. Here is the list of custom key binds for the mod:
- R : Change breathes or blood demon arts
- Right Click : Use breathing or blood demon art (need nichirin sword or blood demon art item)
- S + Jump : Back Step
- M : Demon slayer mark (need advancement grant)
