Chainsaw Man's storyline includes a large number of major and minor characters. Each has a distinct personality and characteristics that add to the series' compelling narrative. With death looming in Tatsuki Fujimoto's action-packed manga series, who dies and who survives in Chainsaw Man?
Who Dies in Chainsaw Man?
The series claimed the lives of the following Public Safety Devil Hunters from Tokyo and Kyoto's Special Divisions 1, 2, 4, and 5:
- Aki Hayakawa: Makima uses Aki's devil contract to keep him under control during the battle with the Gun Devil. He was later possessed by the Gun Devil's remnants and became the Gun Devil's fiend. Eventually, Denji killed Aki.
- Power: After saving Denji from Makima, Power offered the last drops of her blood to him. She enters into a contract with Denji in the hopes of wreaking havoc in Hell at some point in the future.
- Himeno: To save Aki and fight the Katana Man, Himeno offers all of her body in exchange for using the Ghost Devil’s entire power. However, Himeno’s efforts are not enough to defeat the Katana Man because Akane Sawatari’s Snake Devil swallowed her Ghost Devil whole.
- Arai Hirokazu: Arai sacrifices himself to protect Kobeni during the Gun Devil's plot to assassinate its target devil hunters, despite being shot in the neck by an elderly lady.
- Beam: Beam is killed instantly by the Darkness Devil after it points in his direction and cuts him into pieces. Prior to his death, Beam manages to provide Denji with his own flesh and blood, allowing him to revive and grant his final wish.
- Galgali: Despite his best efforts to fight as the Violence Fiend, the Darkness Devil killed Galgali in Hell.
- Nomo: Nomo gives his life to keep Reze from pursuing Beam and Denji. He attempted to fight Reze using his Fox Devil abilities, but Reze is strong enough to avoid all of his attacks. Nomo is left with a severed head.
- Kato and Tanabe: They both attempted to use their Mold Devil abilities to stop Reze in the Anti-Devil 2nd Division's Training Facility, but they were unsuccessful after Reze's original headless body ran toward them and caused an explosion.
- Masaki Ando: He also tried to stop Reze’s attacks in the Anti-Devil 2nd Division’s facility but was swiftly killed in an explosion caused by Reze’s original headless body.
- Nakamura: Decapitated by Quanxi in her massacre during the International Assassins Arc.
- Makima: Makima relaxed her guard after capturing Pochita in the final confrontation in the cemetery. Denji, on the other hand, was simply waiting for the right moment to strike her down with the chainsaw made from Power's blood. Denji murdered and ate Makima at home.
- Subaru, Yutaro, and Michiko: They all died in a shooting incident among themselves. Prior to the incident, they were driving to Tokyo when a spike strip on the road crashed their vehicle.
- Kusakabe and Tamaoki: They both died at the hands of the Darkness Devil.
The following private-sector devil hunters died in Chainsaw Man:
- Akane Sawatari: Makima reported that Akane died at the hands of the Snake Devil through involuntary suicide.
- Tolka: Decapitated by the Darkness Devil.
The following devil fiends (except those who become devil hunters) died in Chainsaw Man:
- Cosmo and Tsugihagi: They are both beheaded by Makima even after helping defeat Santa Claus.

- Leech Devil: Before attempting to eat Denji in his weakened Chainsaw Man form, Aki Hayakawa's Fox Devil swallowed the Leech Devil's decapitated head.
- Ghost Devil: In his fight with Akane Sawatari, Aki decapitates the Ghost Devil's head. Because of Himeno's words, Aki summoned the courage to face his fear of the devil.

- Gun Devil (20% Deceased): Killed by Denji thanks to the blood and support of the onlookers.
- Marshmallow Devil: The first known devil killed by Denji.
