There are many ways to improve Minecraft’s gameplay, from adding valuable resources to brand new combat mechanics. Many players look to Forge mods to add these features, but some may get overwhelmed by the immense amount of possibilities. Instead of trying to add tons of modifications to find the right combination, using premade modpacks is a great way to quickly find what you want. Introducing Demon Slayers Unleashed, a collection of mods that completely changes how you play Minecraft. This brings new mobs, blocks, machines, weapons, abilities, and so much more. There’s always a task to do while playing this modpack, especially with friends. Luckily, our panel simplifies the entire process for installing it on your server. However, there are tips and tricks that’ll help you have a wonderful, and highly combative adventure. With this in mind, we’ve created this Apex Hosting tutorial to show you how to set up and start a Demon Slayers Unleashed Minecraft server.


Demon Slayers Unleashed is a collection of ~80 Forge mods for Minecraft 1.16.5 that creates highly combative experiences for players. The creator, hungryhippo3460, released this pack in 2021 and based it off the manga series, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. Since then, it’s gathered around 860,000 downloads on CurseForge and increases every month.

Getting Started

Demon Slayers Unleashed Train

Upon entering your new world, you’ll notice a steam train near spawn. This is a reference to the modpack’s manga series, which is a good addition for the fans. Besides this, you’ll also see two book items in your inventory: Materials & You and Chronicle of Shadows. The first one allows players to review basic information to get started, while the second goes into more advanced knowledge about other mods in the pack. It’s highly recommended you review these books, as there is detailed information relating to minerals, recipes, and more. However, we’ll be summarizing them and extra materials so you may begin your Demon Slayer journey.

Basic Equipment

Minecraft Part Builder
Minecraft Tinker Station

The first task you’ll want to do is create some equipment to defend and prepare yourself for the upcoming attacks. This process includes making parts for every weapon or tool through a Part Builder with pattern materials. Once enough of these are crafted, using a Tinker Station to put them together is required to make it. These critical resources are detailed in the Materials & You book, including all their recipes. Without using them, you’ll be unable to create the needed equipment to mine stone, slay creatures, among other survival aspects.

Demon Hunting

Demon Fight in Minecraft

When you’re prepared to take on demons, adventure out in the night to find them. However, be careful since these range in size, power, and levels. You may find yourself face to face with a boss instead of a weakling, giving you low odds to win against it. Although, there are humans scattered around the world that fight these monsters. Combining forces with them is a great strategy to kill demons, which can drop some great loot to increase your character’s strength.

After slaying a powerful enemy, you’ll be given some cosmetic items and a valuable sword. This is the backbone to the modpack, as each sword has unique properties that allows you to become stronger. For example, there is a water-based attack to cause significant damage against demons. This will likely be your first power, but it depends on the first monster you successfully defeated.

Demon Slayers Unleashed Sword and Outfit


Obtaining Power

Demon Slayers Unleashed Advancements

As you continue killing monsters, make sure to check your Advancements in the menu to see specific Demon Slayer goals to complete. One of these tasks include sometimes a creature dropping an item called Muzan’s Blood, giving the player an opportunity to drink it. Doing this will turn them into a demon! This opens the door to fight against humans rather than alongside them. Choosing a side dictates what powers and abilities you can use, but can all be mastered if you’re smart enough.


Spartan Weapons

Minecraft Spartan Weapons

Rather than trying to obtain demon swords from random encounters, players can choose to start mining minerals for weapons. There are tons of unique ones available for you to craft, from daggers to katanas. Additionally, they come in the form of vanilla and modded materials, meaning there are iron and special ore variants to use. Each type of item has its own Traits and upgradable slots for extra powers, such as attacking quicker. This is a wonderful way to continue demon hunting, as there are many different kinds of tools to use.

Resource Books

Besides slaying monsters of the night and working your way through the swords, there are tons of other useful activities from the modpack. For example, creating smelting machines or building underwater devices are a few tasks players can do in-game. If you’re wanting to explore these and others, then there are additional books to use like Materials & You.

Puny Smelting

Minecraft Puny Smelting Book

The first is for smelting and introduces new materials to use for crafting recipes. It showcases what type of machines to create in bases and new upgrades for equipment. A good example of this are Spartan weapons that require specific materials that need smelting. These contraptions can move liquids and help produce more ingots for your tools or structures. Puny Smelting requires 1x Book and 1x Grout block in a crafting table to make, which isn’t too expensive.

Tinker’s Gadgetry

Minecraft Tinkers Gadgetry Book

As for the second book, it allows players to view what type of gadgets and armor to craft. This is an important aspect to the rest of the modpack, as it grants you access to a wide range of abilities to use. For instance, there are items called slings that flings the player or creatures over great distances. This can come in handy in intensive combat situations with demons. Crafting Tinker’s Gadgetry requires 1x Book and 1x Skyslime Ball in a crafting table.

Fantastic Foundry

Minecraft Fantastic Foundry Book

The last resource to use gives players more materials to find in the world and extra machines to help their smithing or crafting process. This isn’t as important as the other books since it’s for advanced users only, making it a late-game item to create. It requires 1x Book and 1x Nether Grout block in a crafting table to make. One of the main features from Fantastic Foundry is fuel, allowing players to make more metals out of alloys.


Common Issues

My Game Crashed

An unfortunate issue many players face is crashing on their launcher while playing the modpack. This mostly happens at random times, but can be a result of a bad installation. CurseForge allows players to easily reinstall any instance of Minecraft, meaning you can quickly redownload all the files to start gaming again. We highly recommend doing this, as the exact cause for crashing tends to be a rendering or data problem. Sadly, there isn’t a way to fully prevent this kind of situation, but a reinstallation of the modpack tends to solve all issues.

The Server/Client is Lagging

In cases where your client is lagging or freezing, it could mean your memory isn’t allocated enough. We strongly recommend having enough RAM allocation towards your game, so these problems don’t arise. However, sometimes the server can be responsible for the lag and results in all players having the issue. Fixing this requires you to follow our optimization guidelines, which ensures the stability of your gameplay experience. Combining both of these solutions will greatly improve the game and reduce any lag.
