Katana Man arc[edit | edit source]

During his battle against the Katana Man, Aki pulled out his Curse Spike to pierce Katana Man's body three times. This trigger served to summon the Curse Devil on Aki's behalf who manifested behind the Katana Man and picked him up before biting him and killing him.[5]

Aki later asks the Curse Devil how much life span he has left after using the Curse Devil's power, and the Curse Devil states that he has two years remaining.[3]

Tolka's master uses a nail to stab Denji three times without him noticing. She explains her contract with the Curse Devil to her apprentice and entrusts the fourth and final stab for him to perform as a test. If he succeeds then she will reveal her other devil contracts to him.[6]
