Ever wondered what the cute, dog-like creature in Chainsaw Man is?
Well, its name is Pochita!
Let’s dive into the fascinating world of “Chainsaw Man” and explore the intriguing character known as Pochita.
Spoilers for the entire series may be revealed as the character is discussed.
The Chainsaw Devil
Have you ever heard of the Chainsaw Devil?
He is an important character in the manga “Chainsaw Man.”
Fear of chainsaws is personified in him, making him the Chainsaw Devil.
Before becoming Denji’s beating heart, Pochita was known as the Chainsaw Man.
By agreeing to become physically merged into Denji, he produces a hybrid out of the two of them. By pulling the chainsaw cord from his chest, Denji can turn into Chainsaw Man.
In the thrilling opening chapter, our protagonist, Denji, faces a risky encounter with a horde of zombies.
Denji’s fate takes an unexpected turn when he merges with a mysterious entity named Pochita.
This extraordinary fusion not only brings Denji back to life but also establishes an extraordinary bond between them, as Pochita becomes his very heart.
He absolutely adores Denji and is ready to risk his own life to save him.
Pochita gives up his body to become Denji’s heart and help him reach his goals, while most devils despise or detest people in general.
This unique devil possesses a power that sets it apart from all others: the ability to completely erase other devils from existence. It’s no wonder that this devil is considered the most feared of its kind!
The Eraser Devil’s power is truly extraordinary. While other devils may possess various abilities and strengths, none can match the sheer force of erasure that this devil wields.
With a mere touch or a single thought, it can make other devils vanish without a trace. It’s like they were never there in the first place! Imagine the astonishment and fear that other devils must feel when faced with the Eraser Devil.
Its power is so potent that it can make even the most formidable devils tremble in fear. After all, who wouldn’t be afraid of being completely wiped out of existence?
It’s important to note that imagine a powerful being who not only has the ability to harm someone’s physical form but can also make it seem as if they never existed in the first place.
This incredible power allows them to erase not just the person but even the very memory of their name or title from the minds of the public.
It’s a truly remarkable ability that can make someone vanish from the collective consciousness, leaving no trace of their existence behind.
Pochita has a round, pink body and resembles a little devil with a chainsaw protruding from its head.
This chainsaw on its head is one of Pochita’s defining features and is often used as a weapon by the main character, Denji.
Is the strongest Devil in Chainsaw Man?
Now, he is undeniably a lovable character, but it’s worth mentioning that there are some devils in the series who might give him a run for his money in terms of strength.
So, while Pochita may not hold the title of the strongest, he, though not the mightiest devil in the series, actually represents the less powerful version of one of the strongest devils.
In his true form, this incredible creature takes the shape of a friendly yet imposing humanoid devil.
Picture this: it boasts not one, not two, but four chainsaw arms, along with a chainsaw head that bears a striking resemblance to Denji’s.
Quite a sight to behold, wouldn’t you agree?
Facts about Pochita
- You will be astonished to learn that early Pochita designs resemble those of Makita chainsaws. Even Pochita’s eye could be seen on the actual chainsaw as a white circle, as he shares the same color. People are certain that the author drew inspiration for Pochita from that location and even named him after them. The first portion of Pochita’s name is “Pochi”, which is a common Japanese dog name, and “Ta” is derived from the name Makita.
- Similarities exist between Denji and Pochita and the popular Disney characters Goofy and Pluto. Goofy was a relatively poor individual attempting to make an honest living through his profession. Aside from Pochita, he also had an orange dog that occasionally assisted him.
- Pochita was rated ninth in both character popularity polls, but we have a feeling that after recent revelations about his past, he will be ranked much higher.
- Pochita’s greatest desire is to be embraced, which may explain why Denji returned to his normal self in the first chapter of the story after Makima hugged him.
