Episode 10 of Chainsaw Man reveals a major flaw in Power’s bloody arsenal that needs to be fixed – otherwise she could die.
Kodoani.com – The following contains the reveal for Episode 10 of Chainsaw Man“BRUISED & BATTERED”
While humans and hybrids in Chainsaw Man make a pact with the devil, granting them demonic powers beyond human comprehension, there are some twists in those dealings. First, contracts often shorten life, as seen with Hayakawa’s Curse giving him two years to live, and Himeno, whose pact with the Devil ended her life in a bloody battle against The Samurai Sword again.
Even Denji has a major limitation that his body will be depleted by blood loss; without this fuel, he is much more vulnerable. It can lead to Denji’s death, which is why he has to consume more enemy health on the field. Coincidentally, the Power of Chaos also has a major problem that can get in the way of Power’s mission, making things difficult for Makima’s party in the future.
Chainsaw Man’s power became too anemic
After the attack on the Public Safety Unit, Makima wants to recalibrate; she survived an attack so is now forming a new division, which leads to Kishibe teaching Denji and Power. However, the sessions lead to him killing them, giving them blood, and resurrecting the teenagers, all thanks to their abilities.
They attempt to ambush Kishibe later at his house, with Power using her blood to create spears, etc., attempting to stab the teacher to death. It’s all part of his brutal game, but after they fail and he takes them down, he admits Power has a big problem. She is anemic when using her blood to create these weapons, which makes her very tired and vulnerable to attacks. In fact, it can lead to an enemy that kills Power already losing mana, especially since they won’t revive her the way Kishibe did.
Chainsaw Man’s Power needs a new solution
Now, this could lead to Adaptive Power for the future. She can try to use the enemy’s blood to make hammers, spears and knife rain, saving her own blood. Or she can go with the blood bag that Kishibe uses to revive the practitioners. Strength may also require hunting stronger demons, mixing their blood with hers, or keeping them in a blood bag, as absorbing this heightened health makes her stronger.
Assimilation of blood like this and becoming a parasite is something Makima’s science team could easily look into. After all, they need their soldiers to be as strong as possible, especially since they still need to hunt the Gun Demon after taking down the Samurai Sword.
Finally, Power is also a weapon of mass destruction as big as Denji, so Makima must upgrade her as soon as possible. Power can easily turn things around but if this movie isn’t fixed, teenagers won’t be a huge asset. This is a dilemma that Makima cannot solve right now, with mysterious attackers targeting them from all sides as Chainsaw Man continue.
