What is Gun Devil?
In Episode 5 of the Chainsaw Man series, Makima tells Denji about the Gun Devil, a devil born from a mixture of humans trying to get more weapons to fight devils, leading to many more crimes and conflicts.

As a result, the Gun Devil appeared and killed over a million people in less than five minutes.
The Gun Devil has not been seen since his first attack, but the fear of devils around the world has grown, making them all much stronger than before. All Devil Hunters hunt the Gun Devil in particular, so they hunted for pieces of him that the other devils could strengthen. Now that Denji has been introduced to the main threat lingering overhead, his real fight as a member of Special Division 4 can kick into high gear from here.
