What are Devil Hunters in Chainsaw Man?

Devil Hunter

As the name suggests these are normal humans or otherwise who have taken the liberty to fight and kill the devils on themselves whenever the threat shows up in the Chainsaw Man world. These humans posing as devil hunters make contracts with devils so that they can stand a chance while fighting against them. The contracts give them a fair advantage against devils, bigger than standard law enforcement. Denji, the protagonist plays an important role in the story as he is the devil hunter in both the public safety division and the private sector.
