What is Devil Contractor in Chainsaw Man? List from Season 1!

Chainsaw Man introduced us not only to the world of Devils, but also introduced the concept of Contractors. As many 8 Devil Contractors were revealed during season 1 of Chainsaw Man.

The new viewers who did not read the manga were definitely a bit confused about by the concept of Devil Contractors. While Devils do not necessarily need contractors, but with contractors on their side, Devils can exert their power better than they are alone. A contractor gets powers from the devil to unleash carnage.

This begs the question What exactly is a Devil Contractor? Who can become a Devil Contractor? What are their powers? And who have become a Devil Contractor in Chainsaw Man season 1 so far?

What is a Devil Contractor?

A devil contractor is a human who has made a contract with a devil. A devil gives a human its powers while getting something in return. A human needs to make some sacrifice and offer it to the devil. This sacrifice can be a body part, their sense, life span, their children, or even their legal responsibilities.

Once a contract is made, it is binding in nature and neither devil nor human can go back on their word.

In season 1 of Chainsaw Man, we saw just a handful of Devil Contractors. Below is the complete list of Devil and their Devil Contractors from season 1:

1. Pochita(Chainsaw Devil) and Denji
