Chainsaw Man Online: Character Origins – Hell Devil
The Hell Devil, also known as Jigoku no Akuma, is a fearsome entity that represents the terror associated with Hell. This article delves into the appearance, plot involvement, and abilities of this formidable devil.
In its physical form, the Hell Devil takes the shape of a centaur-like creature. Its head lacks distinct features, except for a massive mouth frozen in a grimace. The entirety of its body is engulfed in flames, emitting an intense heat.
The Hell Devil plays a crucial role in various story arcs within its narrative universe. In the International Assassins arc, it manifests as a colossal six-fingered hand. This occurs when Santa Claus utilizes the Hell Devil’s power, sacrificing one of her flawless dolls and three children. The resulting manifestation transports everyone in a building to Hell.
- Control Devil Arc
In the Control Devil arc, the Hell Devil is summoned by Kishibe’s ‘Anti-Makima Squad’ as they seek to eliminate Makima and condemn her to Hell. Six Devil Hunters from the squad slit their throats, enabling them to summon the Hell Devil physically. However, Chainsaw Man, in his Full Devil form, quickly obliterates the Hell Devil into several pieces. Later, one of the Devil hunters resurrects the Hell Devil using their blood, intending to utilize its ability to send Chainsaw Man to Hell.
As a Devil, the Hell Devil possesses a range of standard devil abilities. These include the power to form contracts with humans, with the condition that a price must be paid. Additionally, it can restore its health by consuming blood.
The Hell Devil has been involved in two notable contracts so far:
- Santa Claus Contract: Santa Claus formed a contract with the Hell Devil, sacrificing three children and one of her own bodies that she transformed into a perfect doll. This contract grants Santa Claus the ability to send all living beings within a designated area to Hell.
- Anti-Makima Squad Contract: The members of the Anti-Makima Squad formed a contract with the Hell Devil, offering their lives in exchange. This contract allows them to physically summon the Hell Devil. By materializing their souls into the Hell Devil, the Devil Hunters gain the power to send their targets to Hell. Notably, the Hell Devil can summon a gigantic hand for this purpose.
VI. Devil Powers
The Hell Devil possesses a unique ability known as Hell Connection. Through this power, it can manifest itself as a colossal hand with six fingers. This hand emerges from a door in the sky, connecting to one of the numerous doors in Hell. Using this connection, the Hell Devil can selectively send certain individuals to Hell, subjecting them to its terrifying realm.
The Hell Devil’s terrifying presence and abilities make it a significant character in its narrative universe. Its embodiment of the fear associated with Hell, coupled with its formidable powers, adds depth and intensity to the storylines it is involved in.
