Who is the Gun Devil in Chainsaw Man and what are his powers?
A principal antagonist of Part 1, the Gun Devil (or simply the Gun) is one of the most powerful Devils in the Chainsaw Man universe. Nearly the size of a giant, its head resembles an enormous pistol with a torso filled with human heads with two forearms resembling machine guns. To invoke him, the President of the United States gives him a year of each citizen of his country for an appearance of a few seconds.
During this short time, the Gun Devil uses its weapons and kills anything that has the misfortune to get in its way. The death toll is counted in thousands or even millions in some cases. Although he is the Devil to be slaughtered, it is revealed during the plot that the Gun has been mysteriously killed. Countries like the United States and China have shared their remains and use them as deterrents. In addition, if a Devil absorbs a piece of the Gun Devil, similar to a ball, its power increased ten times. The Devil Hunters thereby attempt to reunite its parts, which attract each other and locate the Gun Devil to eradicate it permanently.
The Gun Devil is extraordinarily quick and can was able to kill 1.2 million people in different nations worldwide in just five minutes. It moved with such speed that parts of its flesh burnt off the body. The Gun Devil can quickly and accurately fire bullets from a variety of weapons that are a part of its body.
He can shoot a bullet through the heart of every living thing born in the months of January, February, March, May, June, August, September, and November, or December, as well as through the head of every adult male within a radius of about 1,000 meters, every child up to the age of 12, and every living thing within a radius of about 1,500 meters.
The Gun Devil can discard his own flesh, which resembles bullets due to its own speed and power. When Devils of any kind consume pieces of the Gun Devil’s flesh, the Gun Devil’s power is greatly increased. These bullet parts attract each other and fuse together when touched and will attempt to rejoin the Gun Devil’s main body to regenerate.
As Makima said, Gun Devil’s body is currently separated into several parts and remains in an unconscious state. The United States possesses twenty percent of his body, twenty-eight percent is possessed by the Soviet Union, eleven by China, four by other countries, and the remaining thirty-seven are in the hands of Devils from all over the world like pieces of meat.
Who defeated the Gun Devil in Chainsaw Man?
The events we are about to describe here took place during the Gun Devil Arc, a major arc from Part 1 of the Chainsaw Man manga. The Gun Devil strikes the Japanese city of Nikaho in the Akita Prefecture for 12 seconds on September 12, 1997. His power to shoot bullets is immediately activated after he appears. The Gun Devil moves closer to Makima while slaughtering citizens and obliterating the towns he passes through. It is visible to Makima from a distance of 500 kilometers. The Gun Devil halts before turning to shoot Makima.
Makima uses her power before being struck by a bullet. Still, the Gun Devil murders Makima and Aki. It was Makima’s 29th recorded kill. Makima uses both the powers of the Spider Devil and the Angel Devil, as well as the contracts with Aki Hayakawa, Michiko Tendo, Yutaro Kurose, and Akane Sawatari, to combat it.
Makima “failed” to vanquish the Gun Devil, nevertheless. His remains infiltrated Aki Hayakawa’s corpse and turned him into the Gun Fiend. The Fiend quickly approaches Aki’s house and knocks on the door. Denji opens it after Makima instructs him to do so, but the Gun Field shoots him in the stomach shortly after.
Denji and Power are launched through the air in the direction of the attack as a big portion of Aki’s home are destroyed in this strike. The Gun Fiend then fights Denji, obliterating a large portion of the neighborhood. Denji ultimately defeats the Gun Fiend and kills him after receiving blood and cries for help from the locals. Still, this wasn’t the proper end of the Gun Devil, but he has not made an appearance since.
