Redeemer, and its a fact of fiction. You'd be hard pressed to find anything in fiction when Holy/righteous power doesn't inflect more damage upon unholy/demonic things and vise versa.
well i guess the extra damage effect explains itself. but if it were just about taking bonus damage (x2, x5 x10..etc) from a super effective weapon, i don't think damage alone (even severe damage) would be something that HIM couldn't fix, I'd still say HIM's character is portrayed as someone who is intended to be "The Devil" and quite practically a "Miracle Maker" and has demonstrated feats of Resurrection, transforming matter, moving stars (the sun) , granting wishes/Heart desires, freely modifying himself or forcibly shape shifting an opponent, and summoning virtually an object. Something simple as fixing an appendage(claw) should still be quite well within his power.

You're grammar is hideous and offends me. Get off the damn phone and find a computer. I know you well enough that you can type in near perfect grammar.
Mimi's claws attach via a symbiotic relationship, while Him's claws are natural. Just because she can have them like this, and humorous glue them back on, doesn't mean that Him can.
I can express meaningful ideas and concepts fairly decently but I'm pretty much the polar opposite to anyone who is able to spot grammatical errors a mile away, unless i really stop and try to actively search for them i could otherwise just easily end up going through a complete text subconsciously estimating the writers intent (including mine) and just mentally filling the blanks as needed. No intent at causing offense to the grammatically acute. Your token of good faith is appreciated though.
as for the claws while HIMs claws are indeed natural he has demonstrated they are also removable, its a simple trick for him to have them detach and make them levitate and control them mentally.http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=111http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=112

Merely that it is just the art style shift/coloration. (idk, I hope you get my point)
The main evidence that I found between the event of Jr. having his hand cut off and having it restored (no, i am not including the possibility of Jr.'s nergal powers providing a means of regeneration) and HIM's hand(claw) being cut off and it not being reattached/restored is the will of Redeemer in his actions.
maybe "blue mode" might be the swords response to the targets sin level, that or the redeemer chooses the setting/power level.
in jr.s case it was yellowhttp://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=63
but in the other 2 cases its definetlly bluehttp://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=113http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=95
i guess there could be some "Holy Repel" effect imbued at the injury site that rejects the evil claw from connecting back on.

Incorrect. There is a ruler of Hell known as Satan in this story. Him is only a Underworld Lord.
its just that no one in GT other than HIM seems to fulfill the role of the classic devil, corrupting humanity, leading mortals a stray, tempting mankind into sin and wickedness, making contracts (deals with the devil), preying on insecurities, taking advantage of people in their most desperate hours, tainting souls, gaining strength from the sins and negativity of humans. His hell seems to be the one where the sinners go. no other domain seems to have any emphasis on Sins
. The red distorted faces screaming in his domains sky may in fact be human souls, his domain is the only 1 to ever be referred to as "fire hell" and it does seem resemble the "classic hell" of fire and brimstone.
I'm willing to speculate that HIM usurped "fire hell" from Lucifer and caused him to become some goofy imp with no memories. that or the GT Lucifer has some absurd level of power he just hasn't been using and actually has a serious mode or fulfills a grand purpose that we haven seen yet. in any case HIM seems to be handling all the traditional Devil work for now.
