Abilities Of Chainsaw Devil

The Chainsaw Devil, also known as the Devil that Devils fear most, is one of the most powerful entities in this series, after the Primordial Devils.

He can fend off all devils in hell. Even Makima, the main antagonist, was unable to resist the temptation in his heart and caused an international conflict.

Abilities of chainsaw man

The Chainsaw Devil is a devil with all the devil’s abilities. These abilities include the ability to create contracts with people, restore his health through blood consumption, and revive him into hell after his death. 

Unlike most devils, certain aspects of his personality have not changed. He would return to kill other devils no matter how many times they were killed.

In exchange for Denji’s blood, Pochita helps Denji to pay his debts. This is his first contract with Denji. Later, it is revealed that this contract was a real one and not a promise made by Denji. After Denji’s death from the Zombie Devil, Pochita was made the heart of Denji.

1. Extreme Speed 

As Beam noted, the Chainsaw Devil is renowned for his incredible speed. He was relentlessly brutal in his attacks on Makima and other hybrids when he was fighting them. His movements are almost instantaneous, giving the impression that he is teleporting to his enemies.

2. Extreme Durability 

The Chainsaw Devil is extremely tough. He can withstand sonic lashes and explosions that could send him into space as well as atmospheric entry burns without any major injuries. Even after being weakened by public admiration, he was able to withstand Makima’s Thousand-Year Spear attack. He was still in critical condition.

3. Immeasurable strength 

According to Pochita, he could not even do basic social interactions, such as hugging or receiving a hug. This was even more evident when he visited the Burger Shop where even small movements of their arms could cause several deaths, most likely accidentally. 

He had to use his intestine scarf to transport Kobeni, in order not to injure her unintentionally. Later, while fighting the hybrids his attack on Quanxi as well as the Broadsword hybrid was so strong that it destroyed many buildings and instantly decapitated both of the victims.

4. Immeasurable Healing Factor 

Pochita, a full-dead Devil, has regenerative powers that are so powerful that Denji used them to remove Pochita’s body and leave it without a heart. This allowed Pochita to regenerate completely, to imitate Denji and his foul Makima.

5. Devil Erasure

This is his most famous ability, making him the Devil that Devils fear most. The Chainsaw Devil can consume other Devils and cause their “name” to disappear from public consciousness.

War Devil later stated that she would make the Chainsaw Devil puke the Nuclear Weapons Devil. The erasing of war can even be partial. After having eaten a portion of the War Devil’s body, the concept of “war”, however, has not broken out in the world.

6. Chainsaw Appendage 

Pochita is an embodiment of the fear of chainsaws. A chainsaw-shaped appendage protrudes from her head and functions as a real chainsaw. When the tail cord is pulled, this ability activates. He is a full devil and can form chainsaw arms. He can also create chainsaws with his legs.

7. Chain Entanglement 

Pochita can disconnect his chains from the chainsaws and wrap his body around his opponent. This allows him to draw them closer to himself. It’s capable of capturing multiple opponents. Beam said that the Chainsaw Devil could use its chains to hook around buildings to move quickly in the past. However, this is yet to be confirmed.

8. Assimilation of the body 

Pochita can fuse with a human body, replacing missing or damaged organs. Pochita transformed Denji into a human/devil hybrid, unlike the devil becoming a fiend after taking over a corpse. Later, it is revealed by Makima that this contract led to the fusion. Pochita is made the Denji’s heart in exchange for Denji leading a normal life.

9. Demon Transformation

If Denji’s agreement with Pochita is ever broken, Pochita has the right to possess Denji and have him return to his former form. Makima claimed that he had killed her 26 times while in this state. 

Pochita seems to have control over the form as it recalls Denji’s dreams. He tries to fulfill their contract by having a hamburger and going on dates with a girl

After Denji was defeated by Makima in order to save Kobeni and then saved by Power, Denji’s contract was restored. Pochita returned to his heart form and Denji transformed into his normal hybrid. 

If Denji takes out his heart, Pochita can still transform into his devil form. However, Pochita retains a calmer personality and has two arms that are similar to Denji’s hybrid form. His arms are still covered in armor.
