The Devils of Chainsaw Man each embodies a fear derived from the collective consciousness of humans, and Pochita, despite his cuddly canine appearance, is the Chainsaw Devil: an existence that not only represents the fear of chainsaws, but strikes fear within the hearts of his fellow devils as well.
Now, with a little sacrifice (of money instead of blood), you too can get a Chainsaw Devil of your own to vivisect and consume the fears and anxieties that haunt you. Chainsaw Man‘s official Twitter account recently announced the release of a life-sized Pochita plush based on his initial appearance at the beginning of the series.

The plush is equipped with a handle and a tail that resembles a chainsaw’s pull cord, allowing it to be wielded like a normal chainsaw. It also comes in two variants: one with Pochita’s tongue sticking out and the other with his mouth closed.
The plush will be available at arcade centers across Japan. For a full list of participating arcades, visit here.
