Top 10 Arcane Stage Mages in Black Clover-
- 10. Grey-
Grey is a 3rd Class Junior Magic Knight of 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 on 1 vs. 1 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.
- 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.

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 has to rely on her teammates. So, she is ranked 8 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 become 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 7 on this list as he has the potential to grow more in terms of both power and skill.

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. Even though he is a skilled fighter and a formidable opponent, he ranks below Asta as he can’t win a solo match against Dark Triad Members.
