Black Clover manga is an ongoing series and, up until now, has presented us with unique characters; among them, some have extraordinary magic and skills related to it. In chapter 228 of the series, the term ‘Arcane Stage Master‘ was introduced. The term refers to the people who possess the power that cannot be classified under normal Magic Stages.
The series is written and illustrated by Yuki Tabata and is published by Shueisha Inc under Jump Comics. As of January 24, 2021, the series has a total of 27 volumes and sold over 11 million copies. The series also has its own Anime under the same name; there are four seasons in total, and the fourth season is set to end on March 30, 2021.
The story follows Asta and Yuno, two orphaned boys who make their way through Clover Kingdom’s Order of the Magic Knights and aim to become the Magic Emperor. While achieving their aim, they go on various adventures and encounter numerous powerful foes and friends alike.
Grey is one of the strongest Arcane stage mages in the Black Clover. She is from the Clover Kingdom’s Black Bull squad; her real name is unknown. Her main magic ability is Transformation Magic, which grants her the ability to take on the form of other humans and objects.
Even though she lacks the same power as her peers, her versatility and utility make up for it.
Grey is ranked as an Arcane Stage Mage as she can alter inanimate objects and is ranked 10 in the list of arcane stage mages as she is unable to defeat any devils or Triad members on her own.
9) Secre Swallowtail-
Secre Swallowtail was a former servant of Prince Lemiel Silvamillion Clover, the first Magic Emperor. She is a noblewoman and a top tier support magic user.
Her main ability is Sealing Magic, and this magic attribute makes her capable of closing and opening objects; she can also use Healing Magic.
Due to Forbidden Magic altering her magic, Secre is ranked as an Arcane Stage mage. Even though she can’t win against any dark disciples, she is ranked above Grey as she was able to seal the First Magic King, which is not an easy feat.
Still, she is considered to be one of the strongest Arcane Stage Mage in Black Clover.
8) Vanessa Enoteca-
Vanessa Enoteca is a witch from the Witches’ Forest and also a 3rd Class Junior Magic Knight of the Clover Kingdom’s Black Bull squad. Her main magic ability is Thread Magic, which grants her the ability to manipulate thread.
Due to her ability to change fate, she can change the outcome of any battle, which enables her to protect her friends from any grave danger.
Even though she has defeated the witch queen once and is one of the Arcane Stage Mage, Thread Magic doesn’t gain her any favored outcome against stronger foes, and she has to rely on her teammates. So, she is ranked eight and has the potential to go further.
7) William Vangeance-
William Vangeance is the first captain of the Clover Kingdom’s Golden Dawn squad of the Magic Knights and uses World Tree Magic to generate and manipulate world trees.
He can use Healing magic as well as can absorb nearby mage’s mana to increase his magic power, powerful enough to cover the city of Kiten.
His normal magic stage is Stage Zero, and he is said to be the closest person to becoming the next Magic Emperor. Even though he is officially an Arcane Stage Mage and his powers surpass many yet, he was defeated by Zenon, a member of the Dark Triad.
So, he is ranked seven on this list as he has the potential to grow more in terms of both power and skill.
6) Patolli (Dark Light Magic)-
As one of the strongest elves using dark light magic, Patolli exceeds all expectations and is one of the strongest arcane-level mages. His dark-light magic is considered to be the unique one.
He was the owner of the five-leaf grimoire that was later taken away. Patolli’s combination of magic makes him immensely strong and grants him greater control over his surroundings, capable of manipulating darkness and light in unforeseen ways.
Being one of the strongest magic elves, he can use various modes simultaneously and can also switch between his two forms, placing him so high in the rankings.
Licht was the leader of the Elf Tribe and one of its ten Apostles of Sephirah. He is not officially an Arcane Stage Mage, but his ability to use Sword Magic and Forbidden Magic, which enables him to draw power from the underworld, earned him the title.
He is the original owner of the Demon-Slayer Sword, Demon-Dweller Sword, and Demon-Destroyer Sword and can utilize elve’s magic technique to produce more powerful skills.
He can also combine his magic with others’ magic to build various strong magic skills. He is 5th on the list as he is one of the powerful mages in the series and also fought Zagred, one of the high-ranking devils.
4) Yami Sukehiro-
Yami Sukehiro is the first captain of the Clover Kingdom’s Black Bull squad of the Magic Knights and a former Grey Deer squad member. His Dark Magic ability enables him to naturally affect the other world and absorb other light magic and change them into darkness.
He uses Reinforcement Magic to counter his slow Dark Magic and uses Restraining Magic to restrain his opponents with darkness. He is a master swordsman and has the ability to infuse his Dark Magic with his sword to make a powerful skill known as Dark Cloaked Dimension Slash.
3) Yuno (star and wind magic)-
One of the very few who can wield two different elemental forms of magic, Yuno definitely stands in the top 3 in the rankings of the Strongest Arcane Stage Mages.
His wind tornado and similar stacks can hardly be deflected, and with his sylph in sage form, Yuno’s defensive prowess far surpasses any arcane level magician of his age.
Yuno can use attacks such as meteor showers on his opponents, divide and attack through different branches and can even channel his magic by a combination of both.
In his sage mode, he has absolute control over the amount of mana he spends during a spell., which makes him one of the strongest arcane-level magicians.
Asta is a 3rd Class Junior Magic Knight and also a temporary Royal Knight. In the series, he is the user of unique energy, Anti Magic; this ability grants him the skill to cancel out any magic and earns him the title of Arcane Stage Mage. Asta possesses both a high level of physical strength and speed.
Asta’s devil magic is second to none, and in his partial and complete union form, he is one of the strongest arcane-level magicians. Although the irony is his brand is a form of anti-magic with his three swords and Yami’s Katana, Asta still is one of the strongest characters.
1) Julius Novachrono-
Julius Novachrono is the 28th Magic Emperor of the Clover Kingdom’s Magic Knights and also a former captain of the Grey Deer squad. He is the sole wielder of the most unique and rare form of magic known as Time Magic, which enables him to manipulate time and trap his foes in an endless time loop.
As was found in the recent manga edition, Julius was the host of Astaroth, the time devil who gave him the power to control and manipulate time. With Julius’ ability and battle prowess, it is no surprise that he stands at the top of all arcane-level magicians.
So here, we conclude the complete list of the top 10 Arcane Stage Mages in Black Clover. Read the official Black Clover series from MangaPlus Shueisha or Viz Media, or watch its Anime on Crunchyroll. Stay tuned with us for such similar posts.
