Makima (マキマ) is the Public Safety officer who took/adopted Denji as a human pet after the chainsaw incident. Her role in Chainsaw Man is to be the overseer of everything that conspires, and she is later revealed to be the Control Devil (支配の悪魔) that has been living for thousands of years.
Makima is the main antagonist of the Public Safety Saga and is finally put to rest after Denji eats her body. She embodies fear, control, and conquest in Chainsaw Man.

Table of contents
Makima is a light-red-haired woman who rocks a loose braid with bangs – nearly reaching her eyes. She is described as extremely beautiful and alluring, with two side bangs reaching the chest area of her shirt.
Her yellow eyes possess multiple red circles that embody control and domination. Her choice of clothing is a regular off-white office shirt with long sleeves, a black tie, black pants, and brown-colored shoes.
Makima is a female devil who embodies the peak of strength in the current world of Chainsaw Man. Her strength comes from fear and control. However, she has already fallen at the hands of Denji.
Since Denji ate the deceased Makima, a comeback is quite impossible – especially since there’s a new control devil in town.
Makima has worked as a Peace Officer and Devil Hunter with Public Safety. She is currently affiliated with the following organizations:
- Four Horsemen
- Public Safety Devil Hunters
- Tokyo Special Division 4 (Head)
- Tokyo Special Division 5 (Head)
Currently, no stable relationships have been known when it comes to Makima. However, she has managed to create a special bond with the following characters:
|Japan’s Prime Minister||Contractee|
Debut & Character Portrayal
Tomori Kusunoki has portrayed Makima in the official Japanese version of the Anime. In contrast, Suzie Yeung has been responsible for the English version of the Anime.
Having said that, Makima was initially revealed in the following publications:
Makima has a controlling and cunning personality. She wears a smile on her face and often seems like a nice, gentle lady at first glance. However, that’s a part of her abilities as the Control Devil.
Despite all of this, she yearns for a genuine family, but that’s not really possible due to her standing. Makima’s true personality sees people around her as nothing more than “dogs”. Therefore, in true fashion, she uses them however she likes.
She has promised Denji a sexual romantic relationship at many points, but at the same time, she threatens to exterminate him if things don’t go her way.
Alas, Makima’s ultimate goal is to live a happy life with Pochita for eternity. However, the Control Devil is unable to form equal relationships – therefore resulting in an all-out war.

Makima is a devil that can control anything and everything – making her one of the strongest individuals in Chainsaw Man. As a devil, Makima relies on “fear” and “control” as her primary power source and possesses all regular devil abilities.
She can make contracts with humans regardless of whether the contractee is willing. Makima has contracted the entirety of Japan with the Prime Minister. Therefore, any ailment or illness attacking her will automatically be transferred to a random Japanese citizen.
Due to this ability, she can be shot or mutilated multiple times, only to stand back up again with no visible scars or damage. Before the Public Safety Saga, Makima was killed 26 times.
Makima possesses two basic enhancement abilities that strengthen her to new heights.
Allows Makima to make hand-to-hand combat her secondary domain without needing her loyal subordinates to do the job for the. Her strength can shatter Pochita’s chainsaws in an instant.
Makima relies more on smell than sight regarding interactions. This is also her primary way of remembering people.
Makima possesses two major Supernatural abilities that allow her to take control of others:
This ability allows Makima to control any being she believes is inferior to her. She can use Domination’s effects to channel the abilities of any devil she has brought under her control.
This ability is limited to living beings and can also be used to control the dead. Makima can take memories from individuals by controlling them while changing their personalities in subtle ways.
Makima can use an invisible force to damage targets by performing subtle actions like staring. She generally uses the phrase “Bang! (バン！)” while using this ability.
