Asa Mitaka’s recent string of bad luck in Chainsaw Man extended even further when she faced Primordial Fear in Chapter 123. Whether by chance or by some evil design, Asa found herself being pursued by none other than the Devil. — and was completely helpless after receiving its damned attack.
The Falling Devil is the first harbinger of the apocalypse prophesied by the Prophecy of Nostradamus. If its terrifying abilities seen here are anything to go by, humanity of Chainsaw Man may not have any hope of defeating its brethren.
Chainsaw Man reveals the devil’s terrible ability
The Falling Devil is humanity’s collective primordial fear of heights, and falling from high places is evident. When it first appeared, it created an avatar from the corpses of the residents of an apartment building, whom it was forced to jump off their balconies. This is one of the most terrifying feats a demon has achieved in Chainsaw Man; Never before have they shown the ability to unconditionally manipulate people’s behavior to the point of forcing them to commit suicide. Even Makima, the Demon of Control, needed to believe he was superior to humans before he could manipulate them to carry out his orders.
After crafting a vessel, the Devil introduced himself and revealed that it had come to Earth at the request of the “dwellers” of hell. With a new avatar, it adopts a chef motif and calls its ability a meal that must be completed. Otherwise, the offending diner (meaning a person under its effects) will experience death. Neither Asa nor Yoru had a chance to dissect what the Fallen Demons meant in this threat. With just one clapping, it traps Asa in its technique, severing her connection with Yoru in the process.
The Falling Devil forces everyone within its reach to relive the most traumatic incidents of their past while reversing the effects of gravity on them, sending its victims floating in the sky. God. The lower an affected person’s heart sinks as they revel in past trauma, the more their body will continue to “fall” to a higher level. Unless they get their emotions under control, they will continue to soar until they pass through a mysterious door in the sky that takes them to another location – most likely hell itself. The Falling Devil calls this technique an “appetizer”, a mere appetizer, implying that it may have even more terrifying abilities.
Why Chainsaw Man’s Savage Is Asa’s Worst Possible Opponent
The Devil’s ability to make people reminisce about his greatest hurts is especially powerful for Asa due to her numerous unfortunate past incidents. In this case, she is forced to experience the loss of her childhood pet cat, Crambon. The caretaker of the orphanage she lives in offended Asa’s attachment to her cat and, under the guise of wanting to give it a better home, brutally drowned it in a river. near. When Asa began to suspect foul play and inquired about Crambon’s welfare, he callously replied that it wasn’t fair that she was the only child at the orphanage with a family member family.
This has been a particularly harrowing experience for Asa, but it may just be one of many that she is forced to relive while hanging from the street railings for a living. It doesn’t help that many of Asa’s terrible experiences involve falling and always coming at the most inopportune times. As she continues to panic, the Devil feeds her fear and its technique is reinforced.
Since Yoru cannot possess Asa in her current state, this mental battle is up to the latter to fight alone. Her chances of victory look slim, especially against a Primordial Fear that has never been killed before — but that’s why a victory would mean more to her. Conquering the literal embodiment of a curse that has plagued her since childhood will give Asa a much-needed confidence boost in her life. Chainsaw Man.
