Fans of the Chainsaw Man manga are always looking for clever references and nods to pop culture movies, anime, songs, and the like in the manga, and it seems like they’ve found another one!
In a tweet by @Chainsawpedia, Nobara-devil’s pose is shown to be identical to the dance step from Bollywood’s international sensation movie RRR.

While a few readers were skeptical, many believe that the reference is intentional, as author Tatsuki Fujimoto is a big fan of cinema, and RRR saw success in the Japanese cinema.
