Is Makima Stronger Than Chainsaw Man

The Chainsaw Man anime adaptation is just around the corner. The hype surrounding this particular show is surreal. Studio MAPPA will have a tough challenge upfront to satisfy the manga reader with more than extraordinary adaptation. We can believe that fans cannot wait to see their favorite characters in action. Chainsaw Man has arguably the most colorful characters in the series. The author Tatsuki Fujimoto did a wonderful job to create such diverse characters.Today's article is going to discuss the 21 strongest characters in Chainsaw Man. Since not many important characters have been introduced to the series, it should be a quick discussion right? Well, not so fast. Keep in mind if we are going to talk about the strongest characters, we need to talk about the key battle element in the series: the devils. Not only that, we have many types of demons, starting from a normal demon, a hybrid, or a fiend. Not to mention that some people are able to make a contract with the demons. So, what are we going to do with this information? In this article, if a character has a contract with a certain devil, it will only be counted as the devil user, not the devil itself. Also, if there is a hybrid or a fiend, it will mention their name and what kind of devil this character actually is.

Turn Your Manga Into A High Performing Machine

With that being said, all the rules are set. And one more thing, reading this article means that you are ready to witness massive spoilers. Having been named "Eternity Devil" should perhaps increase its rank higher than this. The fact that this devil is placed on number 21 might make non-manga readers wonder how absurdly overpowered the other devil actually is. The Eternity Devil is able to manipulate time in certain places. Time does not move wherever it resides. More than that, it can make bodies to battle its opponents, making the battle more and more difficult as it goes on. As I said earlier, having this devil in the lower part of the ranking shows that this devil is still among the easiest one to defeat. But this time, our Denji needs some more resilience to be able to beat it. Another strong looking devil who resides in the lower part of the ranking. As the name suggests, Typhoon Devil is a devil who is able to create… Well, a typhoon (what a surprise). As a typhoon, its area of ​​damage is so wide, that its attacks are not only affecting its enemy, but also civilians.

Not only that, it can also release them whenever Akene needs it.

It provides a difficult battle for Denji later in the series. But as always, Chainsaw Man does save the day. Combining his power with the goofy Shark Devil, Beam. Their battle did create some unimaginable manga panels and phrases that we would never have thought we needed. Her appearance as a villain is a bit plain, that perhaps some readers (including me actually) might forget who she was. That is until we remember who actually killed our beloved Himeno. Akane has a contract with the Snake Devil. It has the ability to absorb living things. Not only that, it can also release them whenever Akene needs it. That is why she was able to resurrect the Katana Devil and use Himeno's Ghost Devil. But eventually, her antics are finally stopped by Aki, who gallantly fights his best friend's devil. Sadly, Akane's damage to her surroundings cannot be undone. I suppose it is a lose-lose for both of them.

Kobeni made it into the list? Why of course! Some of you might think there is no way a weakling crybaby like her manages to get into the list. Especially when we barely know anything about her power. But that is exactly the point. She is surrounded by mysteries. And since we cannot measure her true power, it is safe to put her on the lower part of the ranking, until further information is given to us. One factor that makes me personally want to put her into the list is that she is among a few characters who are still alive and healthy. By no means putting Beam lower is the same as disrespecting him. As I said earlier, and I will repeat it as much as necessary, this show has too many powerful characters to begin with that natural selection is needed here. Beam's power is rather simplistic. As the Shark Fiend, he can do whatever the shark does, but better.

This ability alone plays a huge role to help stop the Darkness Devil from rampaging.

Strength, swimming ability even on the land, he has it all. His crazy endurance is also what makes him more difficult to handle by the enemies. Overall, Beam is not weak. Not at all. But there are too many ridiculously overpowered devils in the series that makes him outshined in terms of power and skills. The Spider Fiend. Well, personality-wise there is not much to say about her. The question is, why put her above Beam who is arguably more fun to see? First thing first, she can do everything that Beam does, except for turning into a shark. She can submerge into the flat surface, she has a strength to defeat her enemy, she is able to stab her opponents with her legs. But one important ability is that she can teleport from one place to others. This tiny difference between Prinz and Beam is crucial. This ability alone plays a huge role to help stop the Darkness Devil from rampaging. It was Prinz who brought Makima to face Darkness Devil, and averted its attention towards Makima.15.

The manga reader will of course remember her as the vomit kisser (if you do not know what that means, probably you have not caught up yet). But now since we talk about power, let us discuss why Himeno is placed a bit lower than some of you might think. It is true that her Ghost Devil is immensely powerful. It can vanish, thus able to attack swiftly without being seen or touched. But it is not immune to special attacks such as Akane's Snake Devil absorption skill. Sadly, it is not difficult to counter Himeno's Ghost Devil once you know its ability. So it is why we cannot really put her up there in terms of power. But on other aspects, she is definitely somewhere near the top. The Violence Fiend who is extremely polite and friendly, in contrast to his name. But when he needs to, he will prove to everyone why he is called the Violence Devil. His strength is absolutely brutal, being able to destroy almost everything with a single punch or kick. Those who are able to withstand his power most likely can survive any kind of physical attacks.

In fact, he is the first villain who managed to push Denji beyond his limit.

Apart from that, there is not much to say about Galgali. He is arguably one of the most reliable Public Safety Devil Hunter out there, and his comrades know his true value. Especially Kobeni who is the closest to him. A hybrid is always difficult to deal with. Even though he is currently being placed at number 13, Katana Man is far from weak. In fact, he is the first villain who managed to push Denji beyond his limit. The Katana Man is possessed by the power of the Katana Devil. Being a hybrid means that he is able to control the devil's power by himself. More than that, Katana Man is extremely skilled using his power. It took a while before Katana Man was eventually defeated by Denji. Before he met his death, we witnessed one of the most beautiful interactions between the protagonist and the antagonist. I mentioned a lot about power this, power that, but not this Power. Arguably has the status of the best girl, Power's power is more powerful (what a sentence it was) than we might think. As a Blood Fiend, Power has the ability to manipulate blood as she wishes to. The most amazing thing about this is that she is able to use it to regenerate herself, since a devil only needs to give some amounts of blood to revive themselves. In Power's case, she does not need to rely on other's blood, because she can make it by herself.

Since the anime adaptation is coming pretty soon, spoiling more about Power, for me would be a sin. It would be better to keep the best girl a secret and let the non-manga readers find out how amazing Power actually is. Another mysterious character whose backstory is almost unknown. But about his skills and powers, we have a glimpse on how strong Yoshida might actually be. Yoshida is one of a few characters, more specifically, a human being, who has a superhuman ability. He is extremely skilled in close combat, and has a contract with Octopus Devil in his arsenal, making him more dangerous than he looks. Since he is one of the few characters who survived in the series, we might have a chance to see him in the future. Especially knowing that he actually is one of the most popular characters by fan choice. Putting Aki here might be the right choice. Although he has superhuman strength, it is still much inferior to other characters. But in exchange, Aki has a lot of contracts with different kinds of devils. To keep it brief, Aki has a contract with at least 3 devils.
