10) Gun Devil Is Not The Final Villain
Whilst the Gun Devil is one of the cruelest villains in the series and plays a crucial role in the story moving forward, he is not the endgame. The real villain of the series is Makima and the control devil.
9) The Fastest Killer In The World
The Gun devil is the fastest killer in the ‘Chainsaw Man’ universe. It was mentioned in the manga that the Gun devil managed to kill 1.5 million people all over the world within the span of five minutes. This is a testament to this killer’s speed.
8) Gun Devil Charges Money For Contracts
It’s well known among the fans that the devils ask for certain things when making contracts, for instance, they might ask for a body part or the person’s lifespan. However, only the gun devil asks for material things such as money when forming contracts.
7) His Blood Enhances Abilities
The devils drink blood and eat flesh to replenish their strengths and powers. However, consuming the blood and flesh of the Gun Devil will give them more benefits than just replenishment. Upon consuming the flesh of this devil, the powers and abilities of other devils enhance greatly.
6) Gun Devil Killed Some Famous Mangakas
In chapters 75 and 76 of the ‘Chainsaw Man’ manga, a list of the Gun Devil’s victims was displayed. Many people skipped over the list, but if one looks closely, they can see the names of some very popular mangakas in the list. Names such as Hajime Isayama and Tite Kubo were on the list.
5) Fans Do Not Like This Character
Everyone who is caught up with the manga, or is into the later chapters, knows what the Gun Devil did. The ‘Chainsaw Man’ manga readers are not at all fond of the character. Some hate him even more than they hate Makima. The gun devil ranked 53rd in the first popularity poll and 50th in the second one. This shows just how much the fans dislike this particular character.
4) Gun Devil Has Certain Restrictions On Power
Many devils have restrictions on their power, the Gun Devil is one of them. He cannot kill anyone or anything born in the months of April, July, or October. This means he cannot kill that person by using his abilities.
3) He Is Extremely Powerful
It was very well established from the start just how strong the Gun Devil is, but certain instances make the fans realize it again. The Gun Devil once survived an attack from seven devils simultaneously. This was done with only 20% of his body, so fans can imagine how strong he must be at 100%.
2) He Can’t Be Killed In ‘Chainsaw Man’
The Gun Devil has split his body into various parts. Many of these parts are in the hands of various world governments and as such, no matter how you wound him or kill a body part, in essence, the Gun Devil cannot truly be killed.
1) Caused The Saddest Death In The Series
This is a spoiler for non-manga readers. The Gun Devil fused with Aki Hayakawa and became a fiend and took control of his body. After that, he wreaked havoc and caused a lot of deaths and destruction. As a result, Denji had to kill the fiend using his Chainsaw devil powers. By killing the fiend, he essentially killed Aki Hayakawa as well. This was the saddest death in ‘Chainsaw Man’ and it upset many fans.
