The third season of Demon Slayer opened in style with a special extended-length chapter introducing the remaining Five Upper Moons. Although some of them continue to hold great mysteries, we have been able to meet Gyokko in this arc, the fifth moon in the hierarchy and from the outset one of the most striking for having an abstract design and away from the more human aspect that the rest of the Superior Moons have.
That is why it was not surprising that Gyokko had an ace up his sleeve to surprise his enemy as it happened in the confrontation against Daki in the previous season. In his case it has been a second transformation revealing its original appearance. From that moment on, the one-on-one combat between Tokito and Gyokko took a new turn as the latter shed his skin, letting himself be seen in his true form.
Gyokko receives new fighting techniques and a power increase with his final form
Although it maintains many of the characteristics of its extravagant first appearance, this transformation has meant an increase in character power: In his own words, the scales on his body are hard as diamonds and his short and numerous limbs are replaced by two muscular arms capable of performing rapid punches and turning whatever receives these blows into fish.
This form has been seen according to Gyokko’s words by three other people throughout his entire life. His way of fighting undergoes another change with this transformation: more focused on brute force and close range unlike the constant summoning of demon fish that he has been using to destroy the village and its inhabitants.
Based on the manga chapters, we are in the final stretch of the current arc, but that does not mean that the Blacksmiths Village is still in danger. Ufotable has shown us another example of its technical deployment in this second round between Gyokko and the Pillar of the Mist combining action, techniques and some humor to give a visually up-to-date combat.
