According to the source manga, Genya has a special ability that allows him to eat demons. He has immense bite strength and a special digestive organs which allows him to tear through the demons. This ability allows him to overcome his other shortcomings such as the inability to perform the breathing styles. Some speculate that it is a result of an experimental procedure that Genya underwent in the Final Selection. Also by consuming demons, Genya can mimic the appearance as well as some of the powers of that specific demons.
