Because either

A. It was never established that the demi-god cannot be killed, and therefore can be killed by the blade.

or

B. Then the boy couldn't have died for his own stupidity of taking on the demi-god

Also, how can a blade that can kill what cannot be killed, you cannot kill what cannot be killed Therefore the stupidity of the Kid for believeing the Blade can kill what cannot be killed got him killed

The blade is useless. If the blade can only kill something that can't be killed, the blade can't kill anything. If the blade did kill, the victim would be killable, and therefore the blade shouldn't have killed it.

The riddle is a paradox.
To kill what cannot be killed shows that the immortal demi-god is in fact mortal, which according to the story, it is not. Therefore it is not possible to kill the demi-god with a blade that supposedly possesses the power to slay it, and so the boy dies due to his ill-placed belief.

The guy got duped. That blade could do no such thing.

Plus, as people said, if the demi-God cannot die then it cannot, by definition, be killed by a sword. No matter what that sword it.




EDIT: Another paradox is that a bright boy should attempt to kill an immortal. That is a very stupid thing to do.
