Chainsaw Man: Every Main Character Information


Personality of kishibe

Kishibe is a calm simple person. Because of his capability and strength, he can do his tasks formally and shows no emotion when his actions. 

Although he speaks with a calm and polite approach, his deeds frequently show the brutality he has accumulated throughout many seasons spent Devil Hunting. Although he may express emotions like surprise or sadness over certain events, his facial expression and voice are completely neutral.

Despite all this stoicism, Kishibe has proven on many occasions that he is an extremely sentimental and emotional person. In his classes with Denji as well as Power despite his declared dislike of Fiends and Devils, He becomes a bit affectionate toward the pair, telling Makima of his worries about their security. 

He then helps take responsibility for Meowy for them to show his appreciation while they are on an excursion. In the same way, he is unable to gaze at the body of Quanxi following her death, due to their apparent past friendship despite their attempts to kill each other earlier in the daytime.

Kishibe has been in pursuit of devils for an extended period, making Kishibe quite insane. Kishibe believes the most dangerous devil hunters aren’t the bravest or strong and the craziest because they’re the ones with no fear.

While Kishibe was initially dismissed by them as not being unique, Kishibe proved strong enough to subdue two of the thugs that work for Quanxi by himself.

Kishibe is extremely strong for a human being. He could pick Denji as well as Power up off the ground using just one arm and take their necks and snap them without any of them being in a position to stop him.

Kishibe past

However, little is available about the backstory of Kishibe. In the story that was a part of The Chainsaw Man manga fans were able to view the younger Kishibe. Kishibe and discover a little of his background. 

The hunter came across the girl he would later call his Devil Hunter partner, Quanxi quite early in his life and was immediately enamored with her.

He even went in the direction of asking her to be his girlfriend upon their first meeting. It’s not hard to imagine that it didn’t go well. Quanxi was averse to his offer and then promptly punched him. 

Through the years, working side-by-side, Kishibe attempted time and repeatedly to persuade his companion, often repeating the question. Unfortunately, however, Quanxi’s answer to each question was the same.

Based on this piece of facts, it’s safe to conclude that Kishibe was not always the calm person he is today, however, he was straightforward throughout his entire life. Despite his poker face nevertheless, Kishibe is not void of emotion and emotions, as he has proven often. 

He’s a romantic who becomes quite fond of Power and Denji throughout the show. In fairness, these two characters have a way of stepping into hearts without invitation.


While we have sent Kishibe pull off miraculous escapes and fabulous fights with the strongest of foes and supporting Chainsaw Man through the shadows for a long time now, it’s apparent to come to the conclusion that he is without a doubt one of the strongest if not the strongest Devil Hunter.

He solo’ed both Power and Denji during their training for fighting the Katana Devil and despite their best efforts they couldn’t overcome him and continued to lose. Even in the fight against the darkness devil and the many battles against subsequent enemies as well as rescuing Nayuta from China, Kishibe has done it all.

While he might not beat Denji in pure firepower, he is resilient without any cure and as they say in a business where men die young, you gotta fear the old man.
