How did Gyokko find the Swordsmith Village?
In the Swordsmith Village arc, we can see that Gyokko was the one to find the location of the village. But, the manga writer, koyoharu Gotuge has not mentioned it in the manga. As the series has lots of plot holes that fans don’t care about. We can assume that Gyokko was able to find out the village while he was roaming around the country to find the swordsmith village.
It is because swordsmiths are the ones who create weapons for the demon slayers. As a result, destroying the swordsmith will result beneficial to the demons. Even more, They directly go to destroy the swordsmith village after finding it.
Gyokko vs Muichiro
At the start of the battle of Gyokko vs Muichiro, Muichiro directly goes to attack Gyokko’s neck. But, Gyokko uses his ability and hides inside the vessel. Then, Muichiro destroys one of his vases and Gyokko angrily returns after destroying his vase. Heading on, Muichiro loses his sight from the fight while helping the swordsmith and help them run away.
As a result, Gyokko was able to trap Muichiro inside a vase using Blood Demon Art: Water Prison Pot. Then, Muichiro was trapped inside a pot with a large amount of water. Also, he was unable to breathe inside the vase and tries to pierce the pot using his Mist Breathing. But, he was not able to do so.
Who Killed Gyokko?
Gyokko was already winning the battle with Muichiro, but his confidence let him suffer to death. While Muichiro was trapped he can easily kill him. Later, Kotetsu comes and was able to pierce the pot. After being free from the vase, Muichiro was able to get his Demon Slayer Mark after periods of time.
After gaining the Demon Slayer Mark, Muichiro was able to increase his speed and becomes more powerful. Thus, Muichiro was able to kill Gyokko using his Mist Breathing, Seventh Form: Obscuring Clouds. But, while dying Gyokko was unable to recall his human memories like other demons do.
