Who is the Violence Fiend in Chainsaw Man?
Galgali, a member of Tokyo’s 4th Anti-Devil Special Division, is the Violence Fiend and a Devil Hunter with Public Safety. Galgali, a man of average build, is covered in a plague medicine mask and is attired in a jumpsuit with a hood. He gets taller, more muscular, has spiky hair, and has four empty eyes when he’s not wearing his mask.
Galgali, who goes by the moniker of the Violence Fiend, is incredibly cordial and trustworthy. After Beam punches him in self-defense and orders the Spider Devil to leave after mistaking him for a human woman, he now pardons Beam. Galgali undoubtedly possesses this personality because he still possesses many human brain functions, which is remarkable for a demon. He maintains that his mask prevents him from eating, but he enjoys treating others as long as he enjoys food enough to make other people happy.
Under mysterious circumstances, the human whose corpse is possessed by the Violence Devil died at one point before the story began. He just recalls Makima rescuing him. Makima may have made this up, given her powers. Galgali, a member of the Fourth Special Division, is one of the numerous non-humanoids taking part in the offensive against the terrorists directed by Akane Sawatari. He takes part in the building’s zombie purge and almost gets bitten by Beam by mistake. He struck the Shark Fiend, blaming its bite for making him believe it was a zombie.
Before recognizing his error, he warns the Spider Devil to leave the area after mistaking her for a human woman. Aki asks for more help to battle Reze, and Galgali and Kobeni respond. She is kicked with lightning-fast kicks till she breaks the ground she is standing on and is then ejected off the top of Aki’s car, yet she survives unharmed.
He shouts a warning for Kobeni to stand down as he flees through a neighboring door after realizing that they are outmatched. Galgali shows up later to shield Aki from an explosive missile during their combat. She requests a break when they are about to meet Reze because she is running low on blood, and the demon’s violence threatens to disadvantage her. Galgali offers Reze an apology after Aki declines. Before they get a chance to attack him, the Typhoon Devil arrives. Galgali, unable to assist Denji and Beam in their struggle against Reze and the Typhoon Devil, merely observes the action.
At some later point, Kobeni and Galgali go out on patrol and encounter an unknown Devil that the Violence Fiend assassinated. When Kobeni asked what kind of Devil it was for reporting, Galgali said on a whim that it was the Grape Devil. They take a break afterward, and Galgali buys an ice cream which he offers to Kobeni. Kobeni confesses to the Violence Fiend that this is the second time she has eaten ice cream. She adds that Galgali is not that violent.
This one agrees by explaining that it is because the Violence Devil still preserved all its human cerebral capacities. He continues that he does not remember how he died but that Makima saved him. Suddenly, a man who appeared to be Kurose appears in a bullet-riddled car claiming that his partner Tendo and his superior Subaru were both shot. He orders them to report the incident to headquarters, and they flee to obey him.
Galgali with Kurose and Kobeni crossed paths with Aki, Power, and Denji. Much later, when the Fourth Division faced the Santa Claus puppets in the mall, Galgali remained outside with Kobeni. Both are ordered by Kishibe to clean the puppets inside the store. Inside, Galgali decapitates puppets while he asks Kobeni if everything is fine when she discovers that her car has just been damaged. Long after, Galgali and Kobeni, and the fourth division, are taken to Hell by the Hell Devil.
On the spot, Galgali does not feel well, and the group must face the Darkness Devil, which has just appeared. This separates the arms of each member of the division. Now separated from his arms, Galgali asks Kobeni to take his medicinal plague mask and go to safety. The Darkness Devil butchers everyone, and in a last heroic gesture, Galgali, face uncovered, tries to kick the demon. The Darkness Devil annihilates the Violence demon by piercing its body everywhere. Galgali makes an arm appear out of his mouth and tries to touch the Darkness Devil, but the latter slays him with a sword, crossing his abdomen, thus definitively killing the Violence Fiend.
What are the Violence Fiend’s powers and abilities?
Since fiends are typically weaker than devils, the Violence Fiend has exceptional power for a devil. He is compelled to wear a mask that releases poison in order to control his might. Reze had blocked her attack, but the Violence Fiend’s kicks were powerful enough to destroy the earth she stepped on. During his attack on Reze, the Violence Fiend demonstrated his ability to access his force and change certain sections of his body.
By doing so, Violence will enlarge and gain muscle mass, becoming immensely more powerful. The Violence Fiend’s main fighting style is unarmed combat, with him being able to knock Beam, the Shark Fiend, back with a punch and decapitate a zombie at point-blank range with a kick. As a typical Fiend, the Violence Fiend is able to restore his health by consuming blood. The Violence Fiend can revive in Hell, as a Devil, after being killed. This makes him immortal.
And this is the story of the Violence Fiend from Chainsaw Man. It’s a pity that Fujimoto keeps killing off such interesting characters since the Violence Fiend was a truly intriguing character that we would’ve loved to have seen more of. But there’s always hope we’ll see more of him sometime later.
