Who is Master Kishibe in Chainsaw Man?
Kishibe is a Public Safety Devil Hunter from Special Division 1, but after the assault on the Special Divisions, he became a captain of Special Division 4. Kishibe is a direct and stoic individual. He is so strong and skilled that he typically performs his tasks with calm formality and little emotion. Although he usually speaks in a cordial and calm tone, his actions frequently reveal a great deal of ferocity honed during years of hunting Devils.
When certain events occur, he occasionally exhibits emotions like surprise and sadness, but his face and voice are consistently completely neutral. Kishibe has frequently shown that he is a passionate and sentimental person despite his stoicism. He develops a fondness for Denji and Power while training them despite his declared dislike of Devils and Fiends, and he confides in Makima his concerns for their safety. Later, he watches over Nyako when they are away as a favor for them.
Similar to how he won’t look at Quanxi’s corpse when she dies despite the fact that the two of them attempted to kill each other earlier in the day because of their implied prior relationship. Given how long he has been pursuing Devil, Kishibe is a touch irrational. The most dreadful Devil Hunters, in his opinion, are not the brave or the strong, but the crazy because they are the ones who are unafraid. Kishibe met Quanxi for the first time when he was younger. Quanxi initially rejected Kishibe’s proposal of marriage when they first met, and she later struck him in the face.
She was asked this issue repeatedly until, nine years after their first encounter, she finally revealed she was drawn to girls. Kishibe later came across Himeno while visiting the graves of his former classmates. He introduced her to Aki Hayakawa and handed the new recruit over to her.
In a subsequent event, Kishibe ran across Himeno again in a cemetery. He informed her that all of their former allies, who were too rational, had been killed. He also explained that all hunters dream of killing the Gun Devil and that the type of Devil Hunters that Devils dread the most are the crazy ones rather than the strongest or most courageous. He inquired further about Aki. She is profoundly affected by her words as he understands that although Aki can reach the Gun Devil, he is not insane enough to survive.
Is Master Kishibe a Devil in Chainsaw Man?
Before we give you a precise answer, let us first explain what the Devils in Chainsaw Man actually are. A race of mythical beings known as devils can be found all over the earth. Devils are born in hell, and each one has a name that corresponds to an existing or feared entity. They materialize in accordance with the collective consciousness associated with their names. In both directions, devils who pass away in one world resurface in the other, effectively becoming immortal. Devils who pass away in Hell also reappear in the realm of humans and vice versa.
The series has often implied that Devils become considerably stronger by ingesting blood, especially that of another Devil since the major source of food for the Devils is the blood of humans and other Devils. Naturally, the majority are exceedingly hostile toward both people and devils, but others are only mildly hostile and obtain their food in other ways. The Primal Devils are an alternative to the regular Devils, and they are those who have names that represent the anxieties that are present in the human psyche by nature.
Although Kishibe has numerous contacts with several different Devils and is certainly enormously powerful, he is not a Devil, which is something you might think. Kishibe was never a Devil nor anything else besides a regular human and although Fujimoto might change that in the future, there is nothing to indicate that Kishibe is a Devil at this time.
Is Master Kishibe a human in Chainsaw Man?
As far as humans in Chainsaw Man go, there is nothing special we can add to the equation – they are regular human beings and are treated as such. There is really nothing special about humans, save for the fact that their fears are the source of a Devil’s powers and that they can be hosts to various Fiends and Hybrids.
Kishibe is one of only a small number of exceptionally powerful humans in the series. He does have contracts with several powerful Devils, but regardless of that, he is incredibly powerful even without that, which is why he is considered to be one of the best, if not the best Devil Hunter in Public Safety.
Is Master Kishibe a Fiend in Chainsaw Man?
Let us first define the terms used to refer to the enemies in Chainsaw Man before we can offer you a detailed response. Fiends are Devils that have, as a final option to surviving, taken possession of someone’s corpse. A Devil that turns into a Fiend loses most of their supernatural abilities as well as their capacity to contract with people. These can be distinguished because of the variations in the shape of their heads.
Fiends have the personalities of the Devils who gained control of their corpses, but because different Devils retain different amounts of mind of the original corpse they end up possessing, their personalities meld. Fiends have some of the same supernatural prowess as their corresponding Devils, but only smaller, and some of them have the ability to briefly assume their original Devil forms. Blood can also be used to replenish their health, although they cannot enter into agreements with humans or devils.
Fiends are, as we know, well and they do exhibit some traits of the Devil that possessed them. Since Kishibe is most certainly alive and doesn’t have any odd features on his body (save for a few scars, but that is normal for a man of his experience and history), we can absolutely confirm that he is not a Fiend in Chainsaw Man and that there is no way he could even be one based on what we know about the character.
Is Master Kishibe a Hybrid in Chainsaw Man?
Before we respond to your question specifically, allow us to first define what Hybrids in Chainsaw Man are. It happens very infrequently for a human to merge with a Devil; hybrids (actual name unknown) are humans with the capacity to assume a Devil’s shape. Furthermore, signing a contract is the only way to become a hybrid. Hybrids are undetectable from regular humans as contrasted to Fiends, as long as they don’t transform into Devils; yet, they can transform into human-Devil hybrids and manifest the paranormal skills of their respective fused
In addition to gaining their respective Devil’s ability, their strength, speed, and durability all significantly increase after the transformation. Their metamorphosis typically affects their heads and arms, although competent hybrids can even turn their legs into weapons. Similar to Devils and Fiends, they have the ability to regenerate themselves by ingesting blood, however unlike those creatures, their capacity for regeneration is almost infinite, and they can recover their health even after having their heads or hearts severed from their bodies.
Had Kishibe ever exhibited any additional powers or the ability to transform into anything else, there could be a possibility that he was a Hybrid, but since he is simply a human with some Devil-given powers (thanks to a bunch of contracts he has with them), we can definitely rule out the possibility that he is a Hybrid.
