His primary asset is his Wind Magic which allows him to generate and manipulate wind. He can also use his Spirit Magic to summon Sylph to assist him in his battles and further enhance his Wind Magic.

Recently, it is revealed that Yuni is the prince of the Spade Kingdom. And his original magic is Star Magic. It is one of the most powerful magics in Black Clover that grants too many overwhelming abilities. His star magic also gives him a better ability to manipulate the spatial sense.

Asta’s partial devil union lasts for five minutes and complete devil union for five seconds, after which he needs a cooldown time.

He is also able to summon Anti Magic Swords like Demon-Slayer Sword, Demon-Dweller Sword, Demon-Destroyer Sword, and Demon-Slasher Katana. In his complete union form, almost no characters can come close to defeating him.

2) Lucifero


Lucifero was the surprise package of the spade Kingdom Arc and is really one of the most powerful characters and the most powerful devil of the underworld. Lucifero wields anti-gravity magic that gives him control over the manipulation of gravity all around him.

Lucifero, after regaining his full power, is near impossible to defeat, and Asta was only able to defeat him with the help of the other fighters and also because Lucifero was still not at his maximum power level. Nevertheless, he takes second place on this list.

1) Julius x Lucius x Astaroth

Julius x Lucius x Astaroth

The most powerful character in Black Clover is Julius, or we can say Lucius Zogratis, the host of Astaroth devilHe has been the mastermind of all the events in the Black Clover series till now. 

Julius is the 28th Magic Emperor of the Clover Kingdom’s Magic Knights. He excels in Time Magic which grants him the power to manipulate time. He can accelerate, decelerate, stop or even reverse the flow of time.

In this way, he can also heal injuries. In addition to this, he can use Restraining Magic and Transformation Magic. His immense magic power and speed further compliment his strength. He possesses a coverless grimoire that contains various time-based spells.

However, in the manga chapter 331, it was finally revealed that the devil Astaroth was residing within Julius the whole time. Julius has the split personality of Lucius Zogratis. 

Astaroth, the King of Underworld also has time magic which explains Julius’ powers. It really means that with the most powerful devil and the most powerful control over time, Julius is really the strongest character in the entire series.

Special Mentions:

1) Paladins


Paladins are the purified humans that are transformed by Lucius, the antagonist of the series. Presently, the final arc is going on, and we have seen a glimpse of their ability that is very overwhelming.

Lucius created these Paladins as his army against every mage. These Paladins have the purified souls of powerful devils, which means they can use that devil’s magic in purified form. Currently, the known members are Sister Lily, Heath, and Yrul.

2) Ryuzen Seven

Ryuzen Seven

Ryuzen Seven is the group of seven most powerful mages in the Land of Rising Sun, serving under Ryudo Ryuya, the shogun of the country. These seven mages use advanced ki-manipulation called Zetten.

In terms of physical strength, they are far more potent than Asta. Asta was not able to fight any of them, even with the help of Liebe. Presently, the series will show the full potential of Ryuzen Seven.

That’s why we have ranked them in the Special Mention category. Among Ryuzen Seven, the strongest one is Yosuga.
