Devilman Wiki

Tucap (チュキャップ Chukyappu?)[1] was a minor character in the original Devilman manga, seen briefly towards the beginning.


Tucap was a quadrupedal demon, 1.8 meters (5.9 feet) long, with well-developed hind legs. On his back he had a carnivorous plant, which bore a fanged mouth and was surrounded by cilia.[1] His round body, flat head, and strong hind legs gave him a somewhat toad-like appearance. He had a small tuft of hair on the back of his head.


Though Tucap was small among quadrupedal demons, he boasted amazing jumping ability, and the carnivorous plant on his back was a powerful weapon. Tucap could seize enemies with the cilia around the plant, then bite his prey with the plant's mouth. Once the plant bit into an enemy, it was impossible to escape. Its fangs could even cut through steel.[1]


Tucap was seen briefly by Akira Fudo, after he had donned the mysterious Demon Mask at the request of his friend Ryo Asuka, and was bombarded by strange visions.

Tucap was one of the many demons seen in the flashbacks. He could be seen in battle, chomping through his foe and causing a geyser of blood to spurt out.[2]
