"Hey, hey, hey! Grovel, human!! My name is Power! Are you my buddy or whatever?!"

"All lives are equally trivial. Including mine. So any death, even my own, is nothing to be sad about. But... but...! Denji... can't die... cuz Denji's... Denji's... my first... friend."

Power (パワー Pawā?) is the tritagonist of the Public Safety Saga. She is a Blood Fiend ( () () (じん) Chi no Majin?) and a Public Safety Devil Hunter who is part of Makima's special squad.

Appearance

Fiend Form

Power possesses the corpse of an unknown woman or girl with long hair. She mainly appears being blonde. Her hair color varies from blonde to pink in manga illustrations, even appearing dirty blonde in some official art, and appears strawberry blonde in the anime. As a Fiend, she has red and yellow eyes that form a cross pattern, sharp teeth with defined fangs, and light red horns protruding from the top of her head.[3] If Power accumulates too much blood, her horns become larger and more curved, and she can sprout additional pairs of horns from the sides of her head.[4]

Power usually wears the standard dress shirt, tie, and slacks required of Public Safety Devil Hunters.[3] Normally, she wears breast pads to increase the size of her bust.[5] She almost always wears her jacket hanging halfway off her body giving her an untidy, half-dressed appearance.[6]

Devil Form

In her Blood Devil form, she appears as a tall humanoid with four arms and a mostly pale-skinned body. Her head has a pointed appearance with a red color, sharp teeth, and two circular eyes with cross-like pupils. She also has long horns, resembling how her Fiend form looked with too much blood, and longer hair in this form. Her chest has an open rib cage showing a chest cavity full of intestines up to her neck. Her arms have red coloration from hand to elbow. She has four-fingered hands and large claws. Her legs have the same red coloration from the mid-thigh down, ending in heel-like feet and she has a cat-like tail.

Personality

Power is childish, greedy, and almost entirely self-motivated. She tends to fight as if she has something to gain and is certain of her victory, and has no problems with running away from a fight where she is outmatched.[7] She feels the need to boast her superiority over her fellow Devil Hunters due to her status as a Fiend. She has no loyalty to humans or Devils, openly admitting that she will join whichever is the winning side.[8] Power also enjoys the thrill of a fight and enjoys showing off her strength and proving her own superiority. When she was in front of an army of zombies she got excited and told Denji to watch carefully how she single-handedly defeats all of them.[9] She is highly egotistical and often claims she is capable of doing things she cannot actually do, only to abandon them halfway through when the situation turns sour for her. She frequently deflects the consequences of her actions to those around her.

Power is a compulsive habitual liar; after getting in trouble with Makima for killing a Devil when she wasn't supposed to, Power immediately blamed Denji and claimed he told her to kill it.[10] She also blamed Denji for eating all of the emergency food that the team collected even while she had crumbs on her face,[11] and when accused of abandoning a fight because she was scared, Power falsely stated that she ran away merely because she was hungry.[12]

Power is also rude, unkempt, and feels as though those around her should clean up after her. She self-admittedly rarely bathes or flushes the toilet and sees humans as being overly sensitive for caring about their hygiene so much.[13]

Power has a tendency of imagining several ways of making humans kneel and suffer. When they were trapped in a hotel due to the ability of the Eternity Devil she spent most of the time there "planning" to win a Nobel Prize and become Japan's Prime Minister so she could raise up their taxes up to 100%.[14]

She has no problem gossiping and talking about her friends behind their backs; sharing the secret of Aki's shortened lifespan with the Angel Devil.[15]

Power sees no difference between pork, beef and human meat; being willing to eat all of them, even if the meat is disgusting zombie flesh.[16] She hates vegetables, throwing them away when she finds them in her meal.[17] Power is an insatiable glutton, eating all of the stored food that the team needed in order to survive the Eternity Devil's trap and hoarding food for herself at the Division 4's newbie welcoming party.[11][18] When asked by Aki about what reward she could want as part of their mission, Power stated that she desired to suck a human's blood until they die. When promised Denji's blood, Power became ecstatic at the prospect.[6]

After returning from Hell and witnessing the power of the Darkness Devil, Power develops severe PTSD, being completely afraid of being alone and feeling that she will be swallowed by the Darkness Devil. As a result, she needs Aki and Denji to help take care of her, helping her to eat, bathe, and sleep, revealing a more vulnerable side.[19]

Though she is extremely selfish, Power was able to experience compassion for the first time towards her pet, after only caring about the smell and taste of blood and the feeling of death when she was killing something. This compassion prompted her to act for the sake of another being when her pet Meowy was kidnapped.[20] Power also begins to care for a select few close friends, such as Denji, as evidenced by getting him a birthday cake, and later putting herself in direct danger in order to protect him. She also appears to care about Aki and is saddened and afraid when he becomes the Gun Fiend. Contrary to her core values, Power developed such extreme loyalty to her friend Denji that she denied her impulse to sacrifice him to Makima in order to save herself, ultimately saving his life at the cost of her own, and proving that she is capable of putting others before herself.

Relationships

Meowy

Despite initially wanting to eat her and taking care of her only so that she could be fattened up, Power cares deeply for her cat, Meowy.[21] She was willing to sacrifice Denji's life to save her from the Bat Devil.[22] When she thought Meowy was dead after being eaten by the Bat Devil, Power became despondent and empathized with Denji before allowing herself to be eaten.[23]

Denji

Power and Denji initially had a rocky relationship, with Power being entirely willing to trick and sacrifice Denji to the Bat Devil for Meowy's sake. However, after Denji saves Power and Meowy, they begin living together at Aki Hayakawa's home and develop a more amicable relationship. They often bicker and become annoyed with one another, as well as cause trouble for Aki as a pair. Power eventually develops strong affection for Denji, even going so far as to deny Makima's wishes and put her own life on the line to keep him safe. Power considers Denji to be her very first friend, and so values him highly. As is mentioned by Makima, Power became a sister figure to Denji, and the two often bicker like siblings.

Aki Hayakawa

Power takes up residence at Aki's home after she joins Public Safety. Aki frequently winds up being annoyed by Power's rude and brash tendencies, and she seems to enjoy needling him. Despite this, she does grow to care for Aki as time goes on, and seems saddened after the events with the Gun Fiend. The two might be described as developing a similar relationship to a disgruntled elder brother and bratty little sister, with Power constantly causing trouble that Aki has to deal with.

Makima

Power has always had a deep fear of Makima, likely due to her prowess as the Control Devil. Even with Power's personality, Makima's unsettlingly calm commands cut through Power easily. Makima offers Power a chance to be her "pet" again if she hands over Chainsaw Man, immediately turning the worry in Power's eyes to excitement. But due to Makima's cold-hearted personality, Makima kills her without remorse.

Abilities

In her original form as a Devil, Power claimed to be greatly feared to the point where other Devils would flee from her scent, though this is quite possibly just boasting.[24] As a Devil, Power possesses all of the standard Devil abilities, such the ability to make contracts with humans for a price, restoring her health by consuming blood, take over a dead human body and their consciousness, becoming a Fiend, and reviving in Hell after being killed.

Right now, Power has only one contract, being with Denji.[25] In exchange for promising to find and befriend the reincarnated Blood Devil, Power gave Denji her blood. Denji used her blood to create a blood chainsaw and disturb Makima's regeneration.

Physical Abilities

  • Enhanced Strength: Power is far stronger than the average human. She can wield a massive hammer made from her own blood, kill a bear with little effort and crush the Sea Cucumber Devil's body in one swing.
  • Enhanced Speed: Power is a quick fighter, able to land an attack on Denji when she betrayed him while evading Denji's own swing.[26] She was able to disappear from the Katana Man's sight as he gunned down the Devil Hunters before landing an uppercut that he couldn't block.[27]

Devil Powers

  • Blood Manipulation: Power can freely manipulate the blood in her body to form weapons.[28] She can also manipulate other people's blood through direct contact and is able to prevent them from bleeding out though she acknowledges that it is difficult.[29] Power can also distort her target's regenerative abilities by mixing her own blood.
    • Blood Hammer: Power can create an enormous hammer out of her own blood which she uses to crush her opponents.[28] She can also make smaller handheld versions.[30]
    • Blood Knife: Power can create knives out of her blood to stab or slice her targets.[31] She is also proficient in dual-wielding these.[32]
    • Blood Spear: Power can create a spear out of her own blood and uses it to stab at her target. By placing her blood in bottles and hiding them in the area as traps she can make spears suddenly appear from the environment to take her opponent off-guard.[33]
    • Blood Scythe: Power can create a scythe out of her blood which she uses to slice her targets.[34]
    • Thousand Tera Blood Rain (サウザンドテラブラッドレイン Sauzando Tera Buraddo Rein?): In her Full Devil form, Power can generate thousands of blood swords and spears from the blood surrounding herself, levitate and throw them to her enemies. She can use this technique several times. This technique is strong enough to halt Makima for a couple of seconds.
    • Blood Transfer: Through a contract, Power can transfer her blood and life energy to someone, similar to Pochita's ability to assimilate Denji's body. It was enough to completely heal the critically damaged Chainsaw Man's body.
  • Blood Empowerment: As a Fiend, Power is able to restore her health by consuming blood.[35] Also as the Blood Devil, her regenerative powers are at a higher level than other Devils. When Power drinks too much blood or drinks blood from a stronger Devil then her, her power drastically increases. It is shown that she sprouts additional horns from her head after drinking too much blood.[4] In this state, a single punch from Power has enough force to launch Denji into the ceiling.[36] She can regenerate herself from small amounts of blood even after her death by consuming the blood of the stronger Devil. After the defeat of the Chainsaw Man at the hands of Makima, Pochita exploited this ability by letting the blood of her inside Denji's body consume itself. After drinking blood of the Chainsaw Man, Power revived as a Devil from the small amount of blood that Denji have consumed. Her speed, strength, durability and blood manipulation abilities have been increased dramatically. After her transformation, she is also able to resist Makima's domination powers.

Skillset

  • Acting Skills: Power is an amateur actress, capable of faking her death by lying on the ground in order to fool Quanxi.[2]

Other Abilities

  • Enhanced Smell: Power has a keen sense of smell, recognizing the scent of blood from a distance, while Denji was oblivious, and following it in order to track down the Sea Cucumber Devil.[37] She can memorize and recognize specific scents, being able to detect Aki's presence from his smell alone, despite him being behind a door.
