Discover the powerhouses of the series Chainsaw Man with our curated list of the Top 10 Strongest Characters in Chainsaw Man. Let’s see who is the most powerful character of Chainsaw Man.
Anime and manga fans alike have been captivated by the intense action and thrilling storyline of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s hit series, Chainsaw Man. The series follows Denji, a young man with the unique ability to merge with the Chainsaw Devil. As Denji rises through the ranks of the Devil Hunters, he faces off against some of the strongest and most terrifying Devils in the series. But who are the top 10 strongest characters in Chainsaw Man?
Chainsaw Man Strongest Characters
Kishibe is one of the strongest assets of Tokyo’s Public Safety Devil Hunter. Kishibe has insane strength, speed, high battle IQ, instincts, etc. He has contact with three formidable devils. They are Knife Devil, Claw Devil, and Needle Devil. But he does not rely on them that much.
It is near to impossible to beat Kishibe in hand-to-hand combat. Kishibe easily broke Denji and Power’s necks bare-handedly. Even though he is not a hybrid Kishibe’s strength and speed are no joke. He can destroy Power’s weapons barehand. Kishibe is also an expert knife user. His high IQ combined with his knife skills and devil powers makes him one of the 10 Strongest Characters of Chainsaw Man. Kishibe himself stated that “He is the strongest Devil Hunter”.
If Kishibe is the strongest Devil Hunter in Japan, then without a doubt Quanxi is the strongest Devil Hunter in the world. She was the first person to turn hybrid. She has inhuman strength, speed, and high reflexes.
Quanxi was a Public Safety Devil Hunter of Japan but she turned against them because of Makima. Quanxi has total 4 fiends in her possession. Each of them possesses a unique and deadly ability. On top of that Quanxi can turn into a hybrid by pulling an arrow from her eye. Her hybrid form is an Arrow demon. By turning hybrid she gets a speed boost and the abilities of Arrow demon. Other than that Quanxi is nearly immortal because of being a hybrid.
Quanxi’s most vital asset is her Cosmo Fiend. It can trap anyone in an infinite library by saying Halloween. She defeated Santa Claus with the Cosmo Devil.
8. Santa Claus
Santa Claus is one of the oldest and strongest Devil Hunters. It is rumored that she has come back to life time after time and no one knows what she truly looks like. Even though Santa Claus is a Devil Hunter I said Quanxi is the strongest because in the series Santa Claus was more of a Devil than a human.
Santa Claus is not an expert in hand-to-hand combat like Kishibe and Quanxi. She relies on her Devil abilities too much. She has a contract with 4 formidable devils. They are Doll Devil, Hell Devil, Darkness Devil, and Curse Devil. Every one of them is the top-tier devil. With the help of Doll Devil, Santa Claus can make any human her slave doll upon body contact. She can transfer her consciousness to any of her dolls which makes her immortal until there’s any one of her dolls still processing.
Santa Claus promised Darkness Devil that she would kill Makima. Darkness Devil granted Santa Claus his power. Which made Santa Claus one of the strongest and most formidable characters even Makima was afraid of her and said Denji to stop her. But her mind transfer ability made her impossible to kill even with Quanxi and Denji working together it was impossible to beat her. Then Cosmo Devil trapped Santa Claus’s mind in the eternal Library.
7. Cosmo Devil
Cosmo Devil is one of Quanxi’s subordinates. It is a friend now. Cosmo’s abilities are technically unbeatable; they can transfer anyone’s mind inside its mind. Its mind resembles a gigantic library that has all the knowledge of the universe.
In that eternal library, it forces the enemy to understand everything. Thus the enemy becomes unable to say anything and move. The enemies can utter only one word which is “Halloween”. Other than that Cosmo has all the knowledge of this university.
Cosmo’s ability may seem unbeatable but there has to be a flaw. It’s not clearly shown or stated but I believe to trap someone Cosmo needs the enemy to utter the same phrase, “Halloween”.So Cosmo ranked 7th in the top 10 Chainsawman strongest characters list.
6. Gun Devil
Gun Devil is the most wanted devil in the whole world. As the name suggests it gets its power from the fear of Guns. During a terrorist attack in America, the Gun devil appeared for the first time. Within 5 minutes of its appearance, it killed 1.2 Million people around the world. Thereafter it disappeared leaving some of its chunks here and there.
Gun Devil’s true power has never been properly shown in the series. American president manifested 20% of its main body to kill Makima. But Makima defeated it without a sweat.
5. Punishment Devil
Punishment Devil does not have that much of appearance and his abilities are also unknown. But it is clear from the name that this Devil gets its power from the fear of punishment or torture. Makima first summoned it to attack the Gun Devil. It cornered Gun Devil to the point where Gun Devil agreed to become a friend and submit to Makima. So this feat alone is a testimony to its overwhelming strength.
4. Hell Devil
Hell Devil is one of the strongest devils in the show. It gets its power from the fear of Hell. Till now it has been summoned twice. Once it took the shape of a huge hand and the other time it was a Centaur engulfed in flame.
Its abilities are very simple yet deadly with proper sacrifice it can be summoned to send any individual to hell. The Anti-Makima squad summoned it to send Makima into hell but Makima easily outsmarted them by sending Denji’s strongest form.
3. Control Devil
Control Devil or Makima was the main antagonist of the show’s first half. In this list, many devils are technically stronger than Makima yet they are ranked low because of Makima’s high IQ. Makima as a devil has inhuman strength, speed, and extremely high regeneration.
Makima’s main strength lies in her ability to manipulate others and make them submit to her. As the name suggests, once she makes anyone submit under him that person has to follow every order of her. Other than that she has some similar abilities with Darkness Devil. She can use some kind of thrust to crush her enemies.
Denji killed Makima at the end of the first half. Then the Control devil incarnated as Nayuta. Nayuta is currently under Denji’s care. Makima was one of the Chainsawman strongest characters ever.
2. Darkness Devil
Darkness Devil is one of the supreme devils of the show. Other devils can’t even stand in front of him. As the name suggests it gets his power from the fear of darkness. The other devils stated that Darkness Devil embodies primal fear. So it is technically immortal. Other than that it has high speed, inhuman strength, and extremely fast regeneration.
Darkness Devil’s identity is still a mystery but most of his abilities are somehow connected to darkness. It can manifest peach-black darkness around it and its enemies. It can also manifest a blade to slay its enemies. Upon contact, the enemies vomit and burst out of the blood.
Darkness Devil reigns over other devils so it can summon and kill any other devils on its own. It does not care about other devils’ presence or anything. Only Control Devil and Chainsaw Devil are two devils which it thinks of as its competitor.
1. Chainsaw Devil
The Chainsaw Devil, also known as Denji, is the strongest character in Chainsawman. Denji is a hybrid who can merge with a devil at his own will. He has inhuman strength, speed, high battle instincts, regeneration, etc. He can turn any of his body parts in Chainsaw. Chainsaw Devil became the strongest devil from Chainsaw Man Season 1.
In the first half of the show Pochita(Chainsaw Devil) was introduced as a regular devil it was not clear why every high-ranking devil is after Pochita’s heart. But later Makima revealed that Chainsaw Devil is the strongest and most feared devil because Chainsaw Devil hunts other Devils. What makes him deadlier is that whoever gets cut by Chainsaw Devil he/she can’t be reborn. Pochita had put a limiter on Denji’s body so Denji could not unleash all of Pochita’s power. But Makima tricked Denji and forced him to remove that limiter.
Upon removing that Denji turned into the final form of Chainsaw Devil and instantly obliterated every other devils present there. One after another Denji kept on killing all the other devils. Once again Makima’s trick made Denji weak. Even in that vulnerable state, it was near impossible to stop Denji. That’s how big the power gap is between other devils and Chainsaw devil.
Overall, Chainsaw Man is full of powerful and terrifying characters. Each of these characters has their unique abilities, making them formidable opponents in battle. The ranking of the top 10 strongest characters in Chainsawman may vary depending on the perspective and opinion of the readers. But these characters are considered to be the strongest among all others in the series.
