Nicknamed "Claymores" by people outside the organization after the great swords they wield, these warriors possess superhuman strength, speed, and regeneration, as well as senses that can detect demons and demonic energy. These abilities come from having had the flesh of a demon surgically implanted in their bodies when they were only girls, and a Claymore who releases too much of her power at once runs the risk of not being able to turn back. [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer Society rejects them]] for their monstrous traits, and their own organization treats them as [[WeHaveReserves expendable pawns]] by sending them on one dangerous assignment after another until their luck runs out. Desertion from the organization is punished by death, as is breaking the iron-clad rule not to kill a human under any circumstances.

Notable draws for the series include its WorldOfActionGirls, drawn-out and gory fight sequences featuring some [[OneWingedAngel really hideous demons]], and its exploration of what makes someone a human or a monster. Stylistically it takes inspiration from the generation of action manga that Yagi read as a youth including ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' and ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra''. Readers who enjoy Claymore and don't mind dipping into seinen might like ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', a DarkFantasy with gory medieval combat that also focuses on loss, corruption, and revenge, or ''Manga/{{Zetman}}'', which puts all of the mutation and demons into a [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism cynical]] take on the {{superhero}} genre.

Added DiffLines:

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: One Claymore mentions that it is entirely possible for humans to become strong and talented enough to defeat bog-standard yoma in open combat (i.e. [[TookALevelInBadass Raki]]. The problem is, all the combat prowess in the world doesn't help them ''identify'' yoma, hence the need for Claymores. Well, that and the Awakened Beings, which no human stands a chance in hell against.
