Chainsaw Man Wiki

The Punishment Devil ( (ばつ) (あく) () Batsu no Akuma?) is a devil that embodies the fear of punishment.


Because of the circumstances in which the Punishment Devil made its only appearance in one gigantic amalgamation of several Devils, it is rather difficult to pinpoint exactly how it looks. They are a being of what may be several conjoined humanoid bodies with distorted faces, each carrying a different weapon. Outside of the bodies they have several conjoined arms on a opened mouth that looks very similar to the mouth of Snake Devil. In the colored manga the inner body is a very light brown or brownish-yellow and the outer body with the conjoined arms on a mouth have a bolder yellow.


The Punishment Devil's personality is currently unknown.



At some point Yutaro Kurose and Michiko Tendo made a contract with the Punishment Devil, for an unknown price.[1]

Gun Devil arc[]

Makima uses the abilities of the Punishment Devil, along with several other devils and their contracted humans, to battle the Gun Devil.[1] It is used to torture the Gun Devil enough off screen to the point it had to become a fiend.


As a Devil, the Punishment Devil possesses all of the standard devil abilities. Besides those, not much is known about the Punishment Devil's abilities. It has a contract with Yutaro Kurose and Michiko Tendo for an unknown price.[1]
