The Clover Kingdom attracts enemies beyond its boundaries. Thus, the kingdom is protected by the Magic Squads led by the Magic Emperor.
Black Bulls is one of the nine squads of Magic Knights that serve the kingdom. Led by their captain Yami Sukehiro, they’re known for their destructive ways which pose more harm than the threat of the mission itself. With the addition of Asta to their squad, they’ve managed to have better command over their performances.
The following characters are ranked from weakest to strongest in descending order:
Grey is a 3rd Class Junior Magic Knight within the squad. Her real name is unknown, and she uses Transformation magic, where she can transform herself into objects or other human beings. In addition to that, she can transform things other than herself(including enemy spells).
Although Grey does not possess incredible physical strength, exceptional intelligence and vast amounts of magic – she is skilled at controlling her magic. She even displays superior acting and observational skills as she can adapt the attitude and actions of the person she’s transformed into.
12 Finral Roulcase
Finral is a 1st Class Junior Magic Knight of the Black Bulls and also, a nobleman from House Vaude. He uses the rare Spatial Magic where he manipulates space. The main drawback to this magic is that he can only create a portal to a place that he has seen previously. Finral also uses the Reinforcement Magic to increase his physical abilities.
His strengths lie in his magic control, his ability to sense magic and his wit for combat. The most notable spells used by Finral are the Fallen Angel Gate (creates a portal to space), and Fallen Angel’s Wingbeat (launches mass of spatial magic at the target sending them to different locations).
11 Vanessa Enoteca
Vanessa is a witch hailing from the Witches’ Forest and a 3rd Class Junior Magic Knight. She uses Thread Magic to generate and manipulate threads; and is quite agile with incredible reflexes. She is shown to be highly intelligent – enough to be a tactician when required. Vanessa utilises her magic control, magic sensation and intelligence to sway the combat towards her victory.
Vanessa’s Red Thread of Fate is a highly useful spell that tilts the outcome of the events in a more favourable direction for the user or the people they care about. But this spell is merely a catalyst and not attack-based. Along with her Grimoire, she also owns a wand to cast her magic.
10 Gordon Agrippa
Gordon is a 1st class Junior Magic Knight and a user Poison Magic(used to create and manipulate poison). He also specialises in the use of Curse Magic.

Gauche can cast Real Double to call upon his reflection from the mirror world to fight with him.
7 Henry Legolant
Henry is noble-born and a 5th class Junior Magic Knight from the Black Bulls Squad. Henry uses a magic house in combat. With the help of Recombination Magic, he rearranges the location and shape of the rooms within the magic house. Due to a curse, Henry siphons magic from others and is unable to consciously stop it. This magic adds up to the one he uses to cast spells. Henry resides within his magic house because his magic absorption is unstable outside it. In light of this, Henry possesses large amounts of magic power to the point where heavy spells barely exhaust him.
6 Zora Ideale

She also uses cotton-based Creation and Restraining Magic. Charmy also makes use of Food Magic to consume other types of magic and Reinforcement magic to increase her physical strength.
She possesses a large stock of magic power that fluctuates according to her mood and requirements. Due to her biology as a hybrid, she has a dual affinity towards cotton and food.

Another one is Glutton’s Banquet where a wolf generated, uses a fork and knife to stab and drag magic into her mouth.

He displays a heightened level of instincts where he unconsciously modifies his body movements best suited for defence. He has also mastered the sense of Ki which allows him to use his sixth sense to distinguish unseen attacks and people. His inability to use magic prevents him from suffering from exhaustion that comes from draining magic. Asta wields three swords: Demon-Slayer Sword, Demon-Dweller Sword and the Demon-Destroyer Sword.
1 Yami Sukehiro
Yami Sukehiro is the captain of the Black Bulls Squad and one of the strongest characters in the Black Clover universe. He hails from a foreign country called Hino and uses Dark Magic to generate and manipulate the element of darkness. He usually channels this magic through his sword.

Cats, food, anime and novels are the best way to grab my attention. At the peak of my comfort, I’ll be found sleeping or binge-watching shows. I love to write and sketch about things I love – especially anime.
