Going into Chapter 102 and beyond, Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 2 exposes us to Yoriichi Type Zero, a 6-armed battle doll built for training. Not much else is known about the device aside from it originating from the Sengoku Period, and it is being used intensely by Muichiro for training purposes. As explained by Kotetsu, the young swordsmith, the doll’s 6 arms are meant to accommodate the movements and potential swinging actions of a trained swordsman.

The doll turns out to be a valuable asset for clear reasons, an opportunity for Tanjiro to hone his skills. At the urging of Kotetsu, he finds himself training against the doll to the point of inflicting serious damage. With luck, he could surpass Muichiro, but in carrying out his practice, Tanjiro uncovers something interesting within Yoriichi Type Zero. For now, though, you’ll have to wait until Demon Slayer season 3 episode 2 to find out more.
