When it comes to the intriguing characters of the anime and manga world, Pochita from Chainsaw Man definitely stands out. Pochita, also known as Iblis Chainsaw or Gergaji Mesin, is the strong and powerful hybrid character who fuses himself with Denji, creating Chainsaw Man, the strongest hybrid human employed as a Demon Hunter for the Public Safety Bureau. Let’s explore the mysteries of Pochita from Chainsaw Man and understand his powers and abilities.
Who is Pochita in Chainsaw Man?
As per the series, demons are the manifestation of human fear. Pochita is the embodiment of human horror towards chainsaws. In the manga Chapter 87, it is revealed that Pochita was fighting against the four horsemen demons before he almost died. In a weak state, Pochita was rescued by Denji and he ultimately adopted the form of a small dog, which Denji named Pochita.
Denji and Pochita’s relationship grew stronger as Pochita became a loyal friend to Denji. Denji was an orphan and had to repay his father’s debt to the Yakuza. Pochita offered to help by merging his heart with Denji to create Chainsaw Man. In the deal, Denji promised to share his dreams with Pochita. When Denji is weak and his life is in danger, Pochita takes over his body, and their bond is confirmed when Pochita touches Denji and Power in the latter part of the Public Safety Story Arc in the manga.
What are Pochita’s powers and forms?
Pochita has three different forms – the original Iblis form, the weak form and the form of the heart of Chainsaw Man. The original Iblis form is the most powerful form of Pochita as it’s the only form that can eliminate other demon entities. In this form, Pochita appears as a human with four hands, four chainsaws in every hand, and chains wrapping around his neck and body.
In the fully evil form of Pochita, he has armor-like skin with sharp horns on his head. This form appears in the manga, and if Denji breaks the contact, Pochita can take full control of Denji’s body and transform into the original demon form. While the demon form is much stronger than Chainsaw Man, it handicaps the human side of his personality.
In the weakest form, Pochita appears as a small dog-like creature. While he doesn’t have the strength to fight, this form serves as a useful weapon for Denji to hunt down and survive against higher-ranking demons.
In the anime, the heart of Chainsaw Man takes the form of Pochita who fused with Denji’s heart. While he looks similar to his weakest form, he no longer has chainsaws on his head. Instead, a chain extends from Denji’s chest that transforms him into Chainsaw Man when pulled.
What are Pochita’s strengths and weaknesses?
Like all the demons in Chainsaw Man, Pochita has similar abilities such as healing, strength, speed, and endurance. However, his unique ability is his Chainsaw form. Being the embodiment of chainsaw horror, he can transform his limbs and head into a chainsaw and use it to cut through anything.
Pochita is also known for his healing abilities. He can regenerate any part of his body and even create a temporary body when required. In Chapter 95, Pochita creates a second independent body to deceive Makima.
In conclusion, Pochita is an essential character in Chainsaw Man, as he gives birth to Chainsaw Man and plays a vital role in Denji’s life. While highly-sought after, he is still a mystery to many. But with this guide, you can now understand the powers and abilities of this powerful demon.
