Chainsaw Man has been the talk of the Year in the Horror-Action-Gore Category. Although it started serializing in December 2018, the story picked up pace early this year and piqued a lot of interest through its unique and diverse way of world-building. The story has come a long way, underwent major modifications and the introduction of exciting characters. The Manga is right now 96 chapters strong and totally content. Many Devils and Devil Hunters have been introduced and sacrificed. So, it is the right time to settle a popular question that, Who are the Strongest Characters of them all?
To fairly understand the Comparison, let us take an overview of the Plot under context. Chainsaw man is set in a world where all the things, let it be abstract or surreal and highly feared by humans, takes a physical form as a Devil. The powers of these Devils are based on their level of fear among the masses. For Example, fear of Blood Loss, Snake, Shark, and Typhoon gives birth to their weak devil counterparts. Then some highly feared and popular things give birth to Very Strong Devils like Gun Devil, Bomb Devil, Hell Devil, and Eternity Devil. In recent Chapters, there has been an Introduction to The Devils born out of Primal Fears like Darkness, Future, Nazis, Nuclear Bombs, and Aids.
To battle these Strong Devils that show up anywhere in the world and result in Mass Murder, The Devil Hunters Squad has been created. The Devil Hunters are extraordinary people who form a contract with a devil constrained in the Agency Prison in exchange for their body parts. Devils feel satisfied when they receive some sacrifice and live for it. The more the Devil Hunter sacrifices, the more power he gets from the Devil. The powers are attributed to the type of devil under contract with; similarly, the power level is according to the fear instilled by that devil on Humans. But When a Devil is vanquished by a Devil Hunter, they don’t actually die off. Because fear doesn’t end once instilled, the devil will revive after some years, so it is tried to restrain and keep them captured rather than killing them. Having such a complex but intriguing story build-up, it will be very exciting to know the Top 15 Strongest of these all, and ultimately find out the most Powerful Character in Chainsaw Man.
The protagonist is Denji, whose father died with a gruesome Debt following Denji. He becomes a private Devil Hunter to pay the debt and befriended a low devil named ‘Pochita.’ Overwhelmed by a powerful demon, he dies once, but Pochita fuses its heart with Denji’s and awakens him as the Chainsaw man. He can grow Chainsaw from his hands, legs, and Head by pulling a rope trigger from his chest. Later he was caught and made to join the Devil Hunter Squad by Makima for not killing him on the spot.

Curse Devil has an inevitable grab; he grabs the person and bites of their shoulders and crushes both their arm, mortally killing them. This devil is not restrained, so it made a contract with Santa Claus and Tolka’s Master too. Curse Devil can be manifested anywhere when summoned; it can grab and mortally wounds anyone. Aki lost most of his life by summoning the Powerful Curse Devil, leaving only 2 years left to live for him.
- 12) Bomb Devil (Reze)-

She is a Devil Hunter from Germany, who had come to Japan to extract Denji’s Heart. She had a contract with the Doll Devil, which gave her the ability to make anyone in the world a Doll, listen, and do everything she says.

She transforms into a Doll Centipede and grows stronger and stronger as the night approaches. She easily overpowers everyone and transmits her pain to the other dolls, making her unstoppable.
- 10) Angel Devil-
He is a pure devil, like Power, who is a Devil Hunter now after being restrained. He has the most peculiar ability, i.e., to rob the life span of anyone just by touching them.

He is quite nimble and very experienced in Devil Combat. He can use the life span collected to manifest weapons but can not return them. We never got to see his true powers until Makima took him under her control and manifested a 1000 year slash sword from his Halo.
- 9) Quanxi-
Quanxi is introduced as a former Devil Hunter, regarded as the strongest Devil Hunter ever. She, for some reason, left the squad and started living with Demons. She has four friends with her and is quite intimate with each other. Cosmos Devil is one of them; they make all the bidding for Quanxi. She has immense physical strength comparable to Kishibe but under the Chinese squad. She later underwent a contract with the Arrow Devil and became an Arrow Devil Hybrid.

There is no match to him in hand-to-hand combat. He easily subdued two of the fiends under Quanxi and had been rejected by Quanxi numerous times.

With Extraordinary wit and calm, he can subdue most of the powerful demons and is dispatched to only dire missions.
- 7) Hell Devil-
Hell is a hugely feared domain; in course, with it, the Hell Devil is very powerful. Hell devil takes a form of a disfigured face centaur with flaming flesh and sharp fingers. He had a summoning contract with Santa Claus; when summoned, he can force anyone into hell directly. In the void of lifelessness and darkness, he can kill anybody and enjoys sovereignty in hell. He can manifest into a huge palm and drag anyone to the depths of hell; he also displays immense strength and durability. Although in the recent chapters, he was easily killed by Denji, he deserves this high rank.
- 6) Punishment Devil-
Punishment Devil does not manifest freely; it can only be summoned when one calls for it with wholehearted scorn and hefty sacrifice. Punishment devil had only two contractors in the whole history, making it very hard to access. Although Makima summons The Punishment Devil by sacrificing a bunch of Criminal Lives and seeks his help to sub-strain the Gun Devil.

It consists of numerous demons damaging the target directly from a portal from the sky side.
- 5) Cosmos Devil-
Cosmo is one of the fiends under contract with Quanxi; she has one of the most overpowered techniques in the story. Cosmo can force her target to understand everything in the universe. This renders them in a semi-catatonic state in which they are “only able to think of Halloween until they die.” Once this occurs, the victim will be unable to think or say anything other than the phrase “Halloween” until their death. Cosmo used this ability on Santa Claus, rendering her helpless and saved Quanxi. She is repulsive and mad on the outer side, so she doesn’t seem like Danger. But as we saw, when push comes to shove, she has an unexplained gun up to her hand.
- 4) Gun Devil-
13 years ago, the guns and ammunition mafia flourished like anything. Mass treacheries and Raids revealed the production and transportation of Tons and Tons of Guns by the Media all over the world. This made the Gun Devil the most dangerous and powerful devil all over the world. One day the Gun Devil just appeared in India and killed 57,912 people in just 26 seconds and teleport throughout the world, killing about 1.2 Million people under 5 minutes. This made it the most hated and feared Devil ever again. Most of the Devil Hunters all over the world joined the squad to take revenge on the Gun Devil for killing off their families. The Gun Devil was later revealed to be dead. But other devils who get a part of the Gun Devil’s Corpse get immensely Powerful.
- 3) Control Devil (Makima)-
The Highest official in The Devil Hunter Squad after Kishibe, she was initially thought to be a human, But later in the story, it is revealed that she was a devil all Along, a Control Devil. She had been living for centuries since mankind thought of subduing others under them. It seems only Kishibe knew of this and plotted to defeat her in silence. Recently we found that The President of Japan had formed a contract with Makima that, every time she dies, she can transfer the death to a Japanese citizen at random. In the recent chapters, the president of America contracted with the Gun Devil in exchange for 1 year of the life span of every citizen of America to kill Makima. Makima unleashed her full abilities and took all the devil hunters under her control to fight the Gun Devil. She could not kill the Gun Devil Completely, but the fight ended in just 12 seconds and was the most awesome fight in the whole story.
- 2) Darkness Devil-
Darkness is regarded as a Primal fear; it one of the strongest devils ever mentioned and the most overpowered Devil shown in the manga until now. Darkness Devil had only one appearance when the Hell Devil summoned Denji and his group the hell forcibly. The Darkness Devil is huge and monstrous; he has the immense physical strength to lift many humans and Devil at ease. It has a Darkness sword, which when it touches a human or devil, they cough up a huge amount of blood. Its unique ability to chop off the arms of any number of people in an instant, rendering them useless. Even the Control Devil, Makima, could do nothing against it rather offered up numerous sacrifices to save Denji and her group. The Darkness Devil has a special ability known as death stare, through which It killed off many devil hunters just by a deep stare. In the whole story, only Santa Claus is shown to form a contract with the Darkness Devil.
The Most Powerful Character in Chainsaw Man-
- 1) Chainsaw Man (Denji)-
Denji entered into a body fusion with his pet demon “Pochita” and becomes a hybrid Chainsaw man Devil. He can grow chainsaws from his limbs and heads and can cut nearly anything in his reach. Initially, he had less power and durability, but as he joined the squad, he befriended Power and Aki he learned the Normal Human Manners. After getting trained by Makima and Kishibe, he gained huge intellect and learned to fight efficiently. It was later revealed that the whole world wanted Denji’s Heart, Devils, and Humans alike. It is said that when a devil rebirths from Hell. The first sound they hear is the same sound that Denji’s Chainsaw Motor makes. In recent chapters, Denji transformed into a True Devil; he was the first devil hybrid to become a true devil in the manga.
It was revealed that he had killed Makima 27 times already in this form; he had immense strength and durability. Even after being plunged into space, he came back unscathed. He even went back to Hell, killed every devil there, and came back to kill the Hell Demon. In this state, he forgets his own personality and becomes something else completely. His most Overpowered ability is that when h kills and eats the flesh of any devil, then the devil can not survive rebirth anymore. It will be erased from existence itself. In the history of that world, there were no Nazis, Aids, or Nuclear Bombs, because The Chainsaw Man had eaten them and erased them completely. Only Makima in the whole world remembers some devils that The Chainsaw Man killed and ate. Presently, Denji has used this True Devil form only once, which took Makima to use up everything she had to sub-strain.

More and More last moment, Trump Card Devils will be unleashed. I can only imagine the blast it will have. Do read and follow this story to have a unique and fascinating Treat.
