Zenitsu is one of the main characters from the Demon Slayer anime and manga series and has become a fan favorite in the fandom. He is known for being weak and whiny, but his alter ego, which appears when he’s asleep, is too badass for fans not to fall in love with him. Because of his popularity, there are several Zenitsu ships that fans have made up.
In this article, we will be taking a look at the top 5 most popular characters that are shipped with Zenitsu as a couple. So without further ado, let’s jump into the listing!
List Of The Top 5 Zenitsu Ships Loved By Fans
These are the top 5 couples with Zenitsu in them that are popular among fans. The ships are ranked from the least popular to the most popular. I’ve listed this ranking based on the search volume on Google and other search engine sites.
So here are the most popular Zenitsu ships according to Google search traffic:
- Zenitsu x Kaigaku
- Uzui x Zenitsu
- Zenitsu x Inosuke
- Tanjiro x Zenitsu
- Zenitsu x Nezuko
5/5. Zenitsu X Kaigaku
Zenitsu and Kaigaku go way back. They were both disciples of the former Thunder Hashiira, and they had a senpai-kouhai relationship. As a senior, Kaigaku graduated first and became a demon slayer. However, he surrendered to a demon during a mission in order to save his life and went missing afterwards.
Well, he did come back as an enemy, but that’s beside the point of this article. While it might be unbelievable for some of you to think that Zenitsu is being shipped with such a trashy character, most people seem to love this ship pretty much. I guess, you could say there is some sort of charm to this type of hero x villain shipping that people love.
4/5. Zenitsu X Uzui
Next up, we have a very unique pairing that ships Zenitsu and Uzui together. Uzui is one of the flashiest Hashira in terms of both appearance and personality. As a matter of fact, his personality might be a bit too much, as he always oozes confidence and charm.
This ship was formed thanks to the Entertainment District arc, where we get to watch the main characters (Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke) work together with Uzui on a mission.
Uzui pretty much has a god complex, whereas Zenitsu has an inferiority complex. This is exactly why this pairing is very interesting. They say opposites attract, and if they do, Zenitsu and Uzui would be a fine example of that.
3/5. Zenitsu X Inoskue
Number 3rd on our list is one of the most popular ships with Zenitsu and Inosuke in it. These two have known each other literally since the beginning of the story.
We have seen several moments where this duo plays a funny comedic routine to ease the dark atmosphere of the anime and manga. This fan-made ship explores the possibility of these two becoming a thing.
Among all the ships on this article, I would say that Zenitsu x Inosuke is probably one of the most fun couples there are. They’re both handsome and cute, but their personalities are too wild to predict.
Especially with Inoskue in the mix, there is no way this ship will get boring anytime soon.

2/5. Zenitsu X Tanjiro
Next on our list is the pairing of Zenitsu with the main character of the series, Tanjiro. Both Zenitsu and Tanjiro have a special brotherly bond and are pretty close to each other.
However, this Zenitsu ship explores the possibilities of them being even more than just friends. They would make a pretty great couple, I’m not going to lie. Tanjiro is kind and patient, which is a necessary quality to deal with Zenitsu, as he could get a little annoying at times.
Not to mention, both the characters are pretty handsome, which is probably the biggest reason why this ship is so popular in the Demon Slayer fandom.
1/5. Zenitsu X Nezuko
Finally, at number one, we have the official canon ship, Zenitsu x Nezuko. Right from the moment Zenitsu laid his eyes on Nezuko, he has been madly in love with her.
Throughout the series, we see Zenitsu trying to get close to Nezuko. And he succeeds in charming Nezuko, as we see them as a couple in the manga. Both Nezuko and Zenitsu were married, and they even have a child and a whole tree of family members descending after them.
The couple may not be as close as they could be in the anime, but that is something to look forward to in the coming seasons.
Either way, Zenitsu x Nezuko is the most popular ship in the Demon Slayer fandom, and this is the only fanon ship that actually became canon in the manga series.
So that’s it, folks! These are the top 5 Zenitsu ships that are adored by fans of the Demon Slayer series. I know there are a couple of other less popular pairings that I’ve not mentioned on this list, so let me know if I’ve missed your favorite ship in the comments!
