~ Nakime rejecting Douma's 'proposal'

Nakime is a supporting antagonist in the manga and anime Kimetsu no Yaiba. She became the new Upper Moon Four of the Twelve Demon Moons after the demise of Hantengu and serves under Muzan Kibutsuji.


Nakime has pale white skin, but wears red lipstick as a contrast. Her nails are long, sharp and purple. She wears a plain black kimono. Her black long hair is cut in bangs, that cover her face. Later on, she brushes her hair aside to reveal she only possesses one big eye, which has her rank engraved in it.


She is stoic and calm, but still cruel and ruthless. While rarely speaks, she speaks very blunt and straightforward when she does. Like all other demons she is extremely loyal to Muzan. Her Blood Demon Art is also very powerful and she is able to use it skillfully. She has complete control over the layout of the Dimensional Infinity Fortress and is able to relocate everyone and everything in it to wherever she pleases.


She summons the Lower Moons to the Dimensional Infinity Fortress. Not long after being summoned, the remaining Lower Moons are purged by Muzan after he deems them as weak and useless. She stays silent while Muzan kills all of them. Later, she also summons the Upper Moons for a meeting. They ask her where Upper One is and she quickly replies, that he was here first. She remains silent for the rest of the meeting and sends everyone back once it's over, despite Douma still wanting to ask her something.

After Muzan gave her the new title of Upper Moon Four and gave her more of his blood, she used her new powers to create eyeball-spiders through which she can see. Using this she located Kagaya Ubuyashiki, who Muzan wants to kil. When the Demon Slayers attacked Muzan, Nakime transported all of them to the Fortress and separated them. She keeps playing her Biwa and manipulating the environment, keep isolating Demon hunters from one another and/or sending them directly to Upper Moon Demons to their doom. While two of the Demon Slayers (Mitsuri Kanroji and Iguro Obanai) eventually reach Nakime and try to kill her, she is able to calmly keep them at bay, by constantly manipulating structures of the fortress and to fortify herself. While extremely ferocious and desperate battles against other Upper Demon Moons that cost several Demon Hunters their lives raged on other sections of the fortress, here Nakime's battle against Mitsuri and Obanai was quite comical. Ultimately however, she is the last Demon Moon to remain after all others were defeated. While her Blood Demon Art is not potently lethal or destructive, her ability to manipulate Infinity Fortress' structures is formidable enough to tie down two top Hashira-level Demon Slayers, preventing them from reinforcing other fellow Demon hunters.

While she is focused on keeping the two Slayers at bay, Yushiro sneaks up behind her and uses his powers to manipulate her sight. This sent false information to Muzan, fooling him into thinking that Mitsuri and Obanai are dealt with by Nakime. But when he realized that was not the case upon seeing Obanai and Mitsuri teleported onto the Demon lord, infuriated Muzan demanded Nakime what happened, only to be answered by vengeful Yushiro. Yushiro announces his intention to avenge his fallen mistress by casting Muzan out from the fortress and onto earth. Muzan at first attempted to mentally wrest with Yushiro in a bid to reclaim Nakime, but was interfered by Tanjiro, Giyu, Mitsuri and Obanai. Resorting to giving up on Nakime, Muzan manipulates Yushiro into killing her. Her death caused the Dimensional Infinity Fortress to collapse.
