Let’s start with his appearance. He looks like your average jacked-up teenage boy, with lean muscles all over his body.
The reason anyone can figure out that he is a shark fiend is that he has a fin over his head. His features are very similar to a shark, sharp knife-like teeth, short hair, and always wears trunks. When he switches to his shark form, he gets rather scary. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 34)
He gets three huge eyes with a giant shark head. When he fully transforms, he looks exactly like a shark. His entire body transforms into a mutated shark-like body. The only difference is his three eyes, and fins. Fins are a replacement for his legs. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 49)
Overall, Beam is a very intelligent devil and quite motivated too.
He is very passionate and loyal. Beam follows Denji wherever he goes, it does not matter how stupendous the plan is. He will always be there. Even if he knows that Denji is wrong, he goes along with it. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 49)
One cool fact about Beam? He loves to fight against evil. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 34)
Strength And Skills
Well, after hearing about a devil, who can shift his form into a shark. You might be wondering about his abilities and special skills. Well, for a demon he is pretty strong and has immense stamina.
He can survive bomb blasts; however, he is not immortal. A fatal blow to him cost his life. Whenever he transforms into his shark form, his strength multiplies. His head that turns into a shark head gets stronger so with it, his endurance also increases. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 34)
Devil Transformation/ Regeneration
Remember what I said about him being immortal? Well, if he dies, he goes to hell. In hell, he will become immortal. So technically, he is a mortal but will become immortal after his death.
You might be wondering how he got the name, “Beam”? Well, the basis of his name was derived from “Cherubim”. Cherubim is one of the highest-ranked angels in the history of Christianity.
There is not much history about Beam, but know this, he does big things in the future. A fearless devil who wants to assure that there is nothing but peace. He is affiliated with his task force and has to complete missions.
Public Safety Devil Hunters
Beam is associated with the ‘Special Division 4’. He is one of the devil fighters that are in the group. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 34)
The moment he first became affiliated with Denji was amazing for him. It felt like he could not stop gushing over him and kept calling him ‘Lord’. It was kind of a dream for Beam because he himself wanted to be with him. He admired him. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 39)
His relationship with Denji developed in a very different way. I mean, Beam was a ruthless devil, but he admired Denji. No one would have ever expected him to give his life to save someone else’s. But guess what happened? He sacrificed his own life for Denji. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 63)
When you admire someone, you look for things with which you can impress them, or you want to become like them. Seeing Denji changed Beam for the better.
His relationship with Denji is kind of funny too. It is almost as if Denji sees Beam as a child. An annoying child who wants your mobile phone to play games.
Whenever Denji and Beam had to go for patrolling, Denji had to tell him to stay hidden. The reason? Well, when you see someone who looks like Beam, you will get scared and run for your life. I mean, I would. To maintain secrecy, Beam had to stay in cover. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 40)
Well, Beam appears in 4 different arcs that include: Katana Man arc, Bomb Girl arc, International Assassins arc, and Control Devil arc. I will be briefly describing them all.
Katana Man Arc
In this arc, there is another antagonist, Akane Sawatari. She was affiliated with the ‘Gun Devil’ and had a deal with the Snake Devil.
As you know that Beam is a part of the ‘Special Division 4′, he, with his partners, goes on to capture Akane Sawatari from her hideout. He swims through the wall and finds himself in the middle of many zombies. Well, he transformed himself and won that fight easily.
I mean a mutated shark human who can bite the head of things, of course, he can take care of a few zombies. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 34)
He accidentally was going to eat his fellow devil but then was punched hard, which caused Beam to convert into his original self. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 34)
Now, why did I tell this in his story? Well, because that is when he first got associated with his ‘master’ Denji. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 37)
Bomb Girl Arc
The Bomb Girl, who is the Bomb Girl? Reze is the Bomb Girl. She is the main villain of the Bomb Girl arc. Well, she puts up a heavy fight with both Denji and Beam. She tries to bomb them; I hope you found that pun funny. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 45)
The fight goes on to become very intense which leaves Denji and Beam getting hurt. However, everyone knows that they would not stop attacking her. Eventually, they attack Reze and end up hurting her. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 49)
You might be wondering how this ended? Well, Denji gets his neck broken and Beam heals him by feeding him blood. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 51)
International Assassins Arc
Beam is like the protector of Denji, he is an advisor. When Denji was losing blood, Beam was the one to tell him to be cautious, otherwise it would damage him more. If anyone touches him, Beam gets filled with rage. So much that he transforms and then beats everyone. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 45)
This is the arc in which Beam sacrifices himself for Denji. He literally shouts and begs to accept his wish. His wish was to revive Denji and Beam would take his place in death. Beam gets killed instantly and Denji survives. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 65)
If I were, to be honest, this scene was quite emotional. Seeing the bond between those two, I expected nothing less. Quite similar to how Neji sacrificed himself for Naruto. But giving away your life for someone always strikes close to the heart.
Control Devil Arc
Though Beam is dead, he was mentioned. A woman who was interviewed told the channel that Beam was associated with Denji. And she saw their fight with none other than the Typhoon Devil. (Chainsaw Man Manga: Chapter 89)
This arc was the one where fans got teary-eyed. After almost 20 chapters, Beam got mentioned again. And this time he was the hero that everyone knew.
To Be Announced
There was an announcement made that this manga will be adapted into an anime in 2021. The trailer has been released but many of the details are still very confidential. So as of yet, we do not know who the voice actor of any of the characters is.
Whenever they release, we will be the first ones to tell you!

Well, Beam is one of the characters in this manga that you just want to see. I mean, how does he develop? What is his role? What does he do when he is not with Denji? Beam is one of the fan favourites. Not many people sacrifice themselves, but he did without even thinking twice.
Everyone needs a friend like Beam. Everyone needs someone who would be willing to sacrifice themselves for you. This is how it goes, and this is how it should be.
