#1: denji from chainsaw man

Denji lives in a world that is cohabited by devils who can take the tangible form of fears and phobias. Denji is a devil hunter, who later is killed fighting a horde of demons. But the 16-year-old doesn’t perish, rather his soul fuses with the powerful Chainsaw Devil, giving him the power to transform into Chainsaw Man at will.

#2 Furlan Church from Attack on Titans: No Regrets

Furlan Church, along with his friends Levi and Isabel, are thieves in the Underground District who are enticed to the surface with the promise of citizenship and a clear record if they become part of the Survey Corps.

#3 Jazz from Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun

Jazz is the second son of the Andro family and his family’s ability is Furtive Glance (Pit), which simultaneously allows him to identify objects on a target and determine the shortest route to steal them (while also being able to extend his fingers like snakes to steal things). His character, which is among the Misfit Class Demons, is ranked Daleth (Rank 4) and his familiar is a Split Wolf.

#4: Rody Soul from My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission

Rody’s Quirk Soul, or superpower, is the ability to manifest as a small, bird-like animal named Pino (ピノ), who changes facial expressions based on his feelings, which is due to a link to his soul. Rody is also a resident of Otheon.

#5: Squalo from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
