Spider Devil Chainsaw Man’s full explanation

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

There’s one particular character in The Chainsaw Man that captures a lot of fans’ curiosity. I’ve had my fair share of questions about her too. This intriguing character’s name is Princi, the spider devil. Princi is a devil who embodies the fear of spiders. She has eight legs ending in curved points that can surely tear into flesh like a perfect keen knife.

The spider devil being a devil herself works for the Special Division 4 which is a devil-hunting division. Her fierce nature and scary visuals have brought The Chainsaw Man into a more intriguing series, which goes beyond the horror of actions. Let’s dive a little bit deeper.

How deep is Princi’s character?

Princi‘s character is a very relatable one in The Chainsaw Man. It calls attention to the very common fear of spiders. Princi‘s roots go all the way back to hell, which makes her an extremely fierce and interesting character in Chainsaw Man. She also takes a human form most of the time so she seems very friendly to humans, even working as a devil hunter.

Princi is involved in certain plots like The Assasains arc, The Katana Man arc, and the Control Devil arc. In The Katana Man arc she and the rest of Special Division 4 raid Akane Sawati’s hideout. In The International Assasains arc, Princi obeys a few orders of Makima. Then she goes from the ground to hell and faces The Darkness Devil who has killed almost all the devils. She tries to stab him but he’s faster. He flings her back and injures her limbs. Makima finds out about her battle and orders Princi to summon her there. Then she emerges from Princi‘s body and tricks The Hell Devil to bring them back to earth. In The Control Devil arc Princi is shown to be limbless, and being controlled by Makima.

Princi‘s interactions with different characters like Makima and The Darkness Devil showcase her abilities and potential in The Chainsaw Man. Even though the fear of spiders is one the most common fears in the world and Princi‘s supposed to be very powerful because of it, she seems a lot weaker even than The Gun Devil. I believe it’s because people might be scared of spiders, but very few people live in constant fear of them. She still possesses all devil abilities such as Enhanced Strength, Summoning, and Intangibility.

The Spider Devil’s visuals

Princi has sharp, spider-like features with a personality that mirrors her looks. A spider in many cultures is a symbol of patience and persistence, due to its hunting technique of creating webs and waiting for its prey to be stuck in it. Spiritually they are a symbol of creativity and resilience, also the darker aspects of human nature. These symbols go hand in hand with Princi‘s personality as The Spider Devil in The Chainsaw Man.

Why The Spider Devil is different?

Unlike the typical demonic and violent characters that devils own in shows, Princi has a more friendly human-like demeanor. She mirrors a relatable fear and works herself through challenges like a normal human. She doesn’t have superpowers, just a few devil powers that help her be different from humans. This is the beauty of The Chainsaw Man in my eyes. the series doesn’t need to input special supernatural elements into its characters. It gives them decent powers balancing with their alluring personalities, Princi being one of them.

Conclusion: The Enduring Allure of Spider Devil

Usually, when people end up in situations that make them face their fears, It’s not a scene to watch. While watching The Chainsaw Man I realized working with fears can be an interesting thing. Princi as The Spider Devil rolls with a primal fear of humanity and still slays big time. Her character goes beyond horror and demonic traits. She tickles your brain in a good way. Her interactions with other characters showcase the depth of her personality and the mystery of her existence.

I believe everything can be beautiful once there’s a meaning attached to it. Princi as a Spider Devil was needed in the series, for she is fierce and mysterious, but sharp and friendly and kind at the same time. She gives the series a sense of direction even without having crazy combat skills.

In conclusion, The Spider Devil continues to stand for me as a character that is beautifully written and masterfully drawn. Princi is the symbol of simplicity that comes in contrast with the chaotic world around her. I think we need more of that in real life as well as animes.
