Powers and Abilities: After abandoning his contract with Pochita, Denji transformed himself into a full devil. In this form, Denji has incredible speed and strength, capable of defeating multiple Hybrid Devils in seconds. Although he has been shown to take damage and even slowed down by being sent to hell and hurled into space, these actions only stopped him for a few minutes before he returned unscathed.
His immense power is even more evident in Hell, as it is implied that he defeated every demon residing there. Makima said that he killed them 26 times in this form. The form seems to lack Denji’s personality and consciousness, although it has been shown to retain some memories and often acts in accordance with them. After being defeated by Makima to save Kobeni, and later rescued by Power, Denji transformed back into his normal form and regained consciousness.
Powers and Abilities: The full capacity of Makima’s abilities is largely unknown. She has demonstrated a variety of abilities that are either inherent to her as a devil or borrowed from other devils. Makima has shown that she can control any being she deems inferior and is even able to force them to make contracts with her or another devil.
It seems that once the victim is under her control, she loses her memory. This ability works on humans, animals, devils, fiends, and hybrids. She can channel the power of her victims by summoning them through a chain connected to her body. She has been shown to be able to use the abilities of Angel Devil, Future Devil, Snake Devil, Punishment Devil, and Zombie Devil.
Even deceased people can be controlled in this way. Makima was able to form a group of weapon hybrids, three of which (Reze, Quanxi, and Katana Man) were former enemies who were now affectionate towards her. This suggests that Makima can both control individuals and subtly change their personalities.
Powers and Abilities: In her original form as a devil, Power claimed to be so feared that other devils would flee from her scent, but this is probably just Power boasting. Power can freely manipulate the blood in her body to make weapons. She can also manipulate other people’s blood through direct contact and prevent them from bleeding out, though she admits this is difficult.
Power can also warp her target’s regeneration abilities by mixing in her own blood. As a fiend, Power can restore her health by consuming blood. As a Blood Devil, she can regenerate herself from small amounts of blood after her death by consuming the blood of the stronger devil. After the defeat of Chainsaw Man by Makima, Pochita took advantage of this ability by pouring her blood into Denji’s body to consume herself.
Age: early 50s
Powers and Abilities: Kishibe is the strongest member of Tokyo Special Division 4, according to Makima, followed by Angel Devil. Kishibe has described himself as the strongest devil hunter. Kishibe has contracts with at least three devils who have been described as “quite dangerous.” Although initially dismissed by them as nothing special, Kishibe proved strong enough to single-handedly overpower two of the devils working for Quanxi.
Kishibe is very skilled at using knives in combat. After dodging Denji’s attack, he stabbed Denji repeatedly in the back before jamming the knife through his jaw into his brain and slitting Power’s throat. He also has excellent marksmanship, as he was able to precisely throw his knife through a passageway to hit Denji in the head.
Powers and Abilities: By pulling a pin in her collar, similar to a grenade, Reze can explode herself and transform into a hybrid form. She can also use the same technique, but instead of simply transforming, she blows her head off and leaves a decoy of herself to distract her enemies. This decoy can hold and throw its own head, then explode like a bomb, as well as its entire body, before Reze reveals herself.
Although she is a young girl, Reze has tremendous physical strength. She could effortlessly break an assassin’s arm and strangle him to death, and with a simple knife, she could cleanly sever Denji’s wrist in one blow. As a hybrid, Reze is able to restore her health by consuming blood. After drinking the Typhoon Devil’s blood, she was able to instantly regrow her severed leg.
Reze is skilled in unarmed combat. In her normal human state, she can skillfully disarm and injure an assassin by completely outmaneuvering him, bypassing him and putting him in a chokehold.
Age: 30+ (possibly 50+)
Powers and Abilities: Quanxi possesses a level of strength that has been described by Hirofumi Yoshida as beyond what is humanly possible. When wielding swords, she can cut through dozens of people and dolls without slowing down, stopping only when her weapons have been destroyed by the force of her own attacks.
Even one blocked strike was enough to incapacitate both Aki Hayakawa and the Angel Devil. Even in her human form, Quanxi has superhuman speed. She was able to disappear from the sight of five Devil Hunters by racing past them at lightning speed, cutting through an army of puppets created by the Puppet Devil before the original five Devil Hunters realized they had already been killed.
Quanxi is a skilled fighter in hand-to-hand combat, and Kishibe considers her one of the best in the world. She is highly specialized in the use of kicks. Within moments, she was able to put Denji, Tamaoki and Kusakabe out of action using only kicks.
7. Aki Hayakawa
Powers and Abilities: Aki has a contract with the Curse Devil that gives him a nail-like sword. In order to use it, Aki would have to shorten his life considerably. Aki points the nail at a random spot on his opponent’s body. He then says the word “fire” and the hand of the Curse Devil appears and flicks the back end of the nail to inflict damage.
By stabbing his enemy three times with the nail, Aki is able to summon the Escape Devil, which grabs the enemy and deals massive damage, killing him in the process. After losing the Fox Devil’s favor, Aki was taken to the Future Devil, who is held captive by Public Security, and managed to get a contract to use his abilities if he lets the Future Devil live in his right eye.
Aki has the ability to see a few seconds into the future. He uses this ability to predict his opponent’s attacks and plan accordingly. Aki Hayakawa had a contract with the Fox Devil. In exchange for giving him a part of his body, Aki could use his power in battle.
Aki lost the ability to summon him after he recklessly used the Fox Devil against Katana Man. Aki was able to hold up his hand and say the word “Kon,” at which point the Fox Devil’s head appeared and immediately bit into the target’s body, either swallowing him whole or cutting him to pieces where the Fox Devil’s bite intersected with him.
Powers and Abilities: Beam is very resilient for a fiend. He can survive multiple close-range explosions caused by Bomb Girl, yet is agile enough to escape afterward. Beam has the ability to swim through solid objects, so he can pass through walls and the ground with ease. He does not seem to be able to pull others with him or pass through large objects.
Beam can transform his head into a giant shark head with multiple eyes and great biting power. Upon his full transformation, Beam’s entire body transforms into his Shark Devil form. As a fiend, Beam should be able to restore his health by consuming blood. As a devil, Beam should be able to resurrect in hell after death. This makes him virtually immortal.
Powers and Abilities: Cosmo can force her target to understand everything in the universe. This puts them in a semi-catatonic state where they can “think only of Halloween until they die.” Once this happens, the victim is unable to think or say anything other than the phrase “Halloween” until they die. As an ogre, Cosmo should be able to restore her health by ingesting blood. If Cosmo is killed, she will be resurrected in Hell as a she-devil. This makes her practically immortal.
Powers and Abilities: The Violence Fiend has extraordinary powers for a devil, although he is usually weaker than the devil. To keep his power in check, he is forced to wear a poison-spitting mask. In the fight against Reze, the Violence Fiend’s kicks were strong enough to shatter the ground she was standing on after she blocked his attack.
During his attack on Reze, Violence was shown to be able to access his power and transform parts of his body into the state of his release. In this way, said limb enlarges and gains muscle mass, increasing its power immensely. The Violence Fiend’s primary fighting style is unarmed combat; it is capable of knocking back a beam with a punch and decapitating a zombie with a kick at close range.
As a fiend, the Violence Fiend should be able to restore health by consuming blood. The Violence Fiend should be resurrected in hell as a devil after being killed. This makes him practically immortal.
Powers and Abilities: The Angel Devil is considered the second strongest agent of Division 4 after Captain Kishibe, but his laziness holds him back. The Angel Devil’s wings are strong enough to deflect gunfire and can be used as improvised shields. The Angel Devil can absorb the life span of humans through physical contact.
If they touch long enough, the affected human will eventually be killed painlessly. After Aki briefly grabbed his hand, the Angel Devil estimated that Aki had lost two months of his lifespan. The Angel Devil can convert the drained lifespans into weapons with supernatural properties, such as Aki’s katana, which can cut through the normally intangible Ghost Devil.
If you use up five years of accumulated lifespan, the Angel Devil can manifest a sword from his halo that appears to instantly kill anyone he cuts with it without leaving a trace. When he consumes ten years of his accumulated lifespan, the Angel Devil can manifest a sword from his halo. Its effect and strength are unknown, as he used it against Makima and she quickly struck him down before he could attack.
By spending one hundred years of his accumulated lifespan, the Angel Devil can manifest a sword from his halo. This ability is used by Makima against Power while controlling the Angel Devil. When using up a thousand years of accumulated lifespan, the Angel Devil can manifest a spear from its halo.
This ability is used by Makima against Chainsaw Man while she controls the Angel Devil. Makima threw this spear by summoning three humanoid beings. This technique is strong enough to defeat the Chainsaw Man.
Powers and Abilities: Princi can do everything a spider can do. It can walk on walls and has spider limbs with which it can pierce enemies. Princi has been shown to be able to dive into the ground and resurface to attack her enemies at any time. Princi has been shown to be able to unzip her body to summon someone Makima to her immediate location, even in Hell.
As a devil, the Spider Devil should be able to restore her health by consuming blood. As a devil, the Spider Devil is able to make contracts with people. As a devil, the Spider Devil should be able to resurrect in hell after being killed, making him immortal.
13. Asa Mitaka
Powers and Abilities: Asa Mitaka has the ability to read War Devil’s mind and she can witness the events happening around her as a ghost while she is under control of the War Devil. Moments before Asa’s death, the War Devil made a contract with her where they jointly share control of Mitaka’s body. To make this possible, the War Devil left only one-half of Asa’s brain intact, which, however, does not cause any special problems for the girl. Apparently, the transfer of control over the body can only occur at the request of the War Devil.
The War Devil also has the ability to read Mitaka’s mind, but it doesn’t seem like the girl can do the same for the devil. When one of them controls the body, the other remains to observe what is happening as an outside observer and is felt only by the controlling side, while not being able to physically interact with the environment. With the destruction of Chainsaw Man, the contract will be terminated and Mitaka will regain control of her body.
Up to this point, the War Devil can completely take over Mitaka’s brain and guide her body alone, however, she considers such an outcome undesirable and is ready to resort to it only as a last resort. When the War Devil replaces Mitaka, the girl gets scars on her face and the characteristic eyes of the War Devil. In this state, Mitaka exhibits the traits of a fiend: she has a deformed head and no control over her body.
After they change back, the resulting appearance attributes disappear. It is unknown if they exist in reality or only in Mitaka’s mind. In “hallucination” form, the War Devil appears as Mitaka with flowing hair, demonic eyes, and facial scars; in the same form, Mitaka’s appearance does not change in any way.
The ability to observe what is happening as a “ghost” while the Devil controls her body did not appear immediately for Mitaka. Apparently, she was absent during the murder of the head girl and the school teacher, but at home, she remembers this event after being reminded by the Devil.
Powers and Abilities: As the reincarnated Control Devil, Nayuta has the same powers as Makima. She also has all of the standard devil abilities.
