Chainsaw Man: Makima Powers and Abilities Explained

Before I talk about Makima’s Power and Abilities you must know about her. she is a senior fellow and leader of an experimental unit Tokyo Special Division 4 in Public Safety Devil Hunters.

When our man Denji transformed into Chainsaw man and killed Zombie Devil, right after the fight Makima appeared the following day. She gave him two options: join her squad or died as a devil by her.

Denji accepts her offer because first time in his life someone has treated him as a human and promised to give him the facilities that he once dreamed of, besides that my boy Denji develops romantic feelings for her.

After all, she is a cutie beauty with light red hair and two longer side bangs that frame her face. Yellow eyes with multiple red rings enhance her look and the attire she wore (white long sleeves, a black tie, black pants, and brown shoes) matches her perfectly.

Makima Personality

At first, she seems nice, gentle, social, and friendly woman and the smile on her face can make anyone relaxed. However, this is only a mask that she uses to fulfill her main goal. When Aki Hayakawa passes away, Makima begins to show her true colors to Denji. In reality, Makima is someone Machiavelli, cunning, and calculating who views people around her as merely “dogs” that she can use whenever she pleases and who must obey her without hesitation.

Makima is quite cunning, cold, and manipulative. Despite promising Denji a romantic and sexual relationship, she threatens him with extermination if he disobeys her. Her motivations for achieving her goals are ruthless and dispassionate, even if it means risking the lives of those she should be protecting.

Makima Weakness

Makima was practically unkillable because she was contracted to the Prime Minister of Japan, which essentially passed all fatal damage along to the citizens of Japan. Denji was able to eliminate her by utilizing her heightened sense of smell to identify people, which she used to recognize people.
