Black Clover manga is currently exploring the Spade Kingdom arc, which seems to be the most phenomenal action-packed arc by far.
However, its preceding arc — the Elf Resurrection arc disrupted the balance of strengths between various Magic Knights since the people who got taken over have retained the mana of the elves.
This disruption in strengths led us to this question – Who is currently the strongest Magic Knight captain in Black Clover?
Note: Even though the facts in this list are up-to-date with the current events of the manga; there are NO MAJOR SPOILERS FROM THE MANGA.
Kaiser Granvorka, or ‘Lord Kaiser,’ is a member of the prestigious royal noble family of the Clover Kingdom and the current captain of the Purple Orcas.
Lord Kaiser is the user of extremely potent Vortex magic and vast reserves of mana. His vortex magic can create whirlwinds of mana and dissipate any spell; his magic is so strong that he is known as “Kingdom’s Ultimate Shield.”
Rill Boismortier was appointed as the captain of Azure Deer at the age of 19, thus becoming the youngest Magic Knight captain in history. He is a user of Picture magic and is yet another human-host of an elf.
Rill, by nature, is a child. However, he has immense mana and ever-flexible picture magic, which makes him a force to be reckoned with. After completing his training with the spirit guardian, Rill has become even stronger now.
8Jack the Ripper
Jack the Ripper is the current captain of the Green Mantis Magic Knight squad. He has a twisted personality and loves to slash things up with his blades all the time.
Despite his looks, he is simply powerful. He uses Slash magic and is known to adapt and cut through anything. During the battle against elves, his Slash magic was able to adjust and even cut Langris’s Spatial magic — which is a considerable feat in itself.
Another human-host of an elf, Charlotte Roselei, is the current captain of the Blue Rose Magic Knights squad. She is a royal of Roselei family and uses arcane-stage magic — the Briar magic.
Her briars were initially red, but she lost a part of her strength when the curse of Roselei family activated. It was then only that the color of her briars changed from red to blue. Despite this, she is strong enough to be acknowledged by Yami himself.
Nozel Silva is the eldest son of one of the three Royal Houses of Clover Kingdom — House of Silva. He is a user of Mercury magic and the current captain of Silver Eagle Magic Knight squad.
Nozel is the only one who took his mother’s steel magic attribute. Everyone in the Clover Kingdom acknowledges he strength — Nozel is known to be a whole squad in itself due to mercury magic’s immense capabilities in both offense and defense.
Nozel is strong enough to easily interchange William Vangeance for the position of top 5 anytime!
William Vangeance is the current captain of the Golden Dawn Magic Knight squad. His skills are acknowledged by the Wizard King, Julius Novachrono himself.
William uses arcane stage magic — World Tree magic. His world tree magic is extremely flexible and can accomplish a range of things — from sucking up mana and subduing the enemies over a city-wide range to connecting through Magic Knights all over the kingdom and supply them mana. These spells go to show that he possesses vast mana reserves.
Dorothy Unsworth is not only the captain of Coral Peacock but a witch from The Witches’ Forest; and a human-host to one of the strongest elves — Apostles of Sephirah.
She is a user of Dream Magic, and her spell called Glamour World can easily trap anyone in her dream world. In the glamour world, anything and everything happens according to the will of Dorothy.
Mereoleona Vermillion is the eldest daughter of one of the three Royal Houses of Clover Kingdom — House of Vermillion. She was the temporary captain of Crimson Lion, appointed captain of Royal Knights squad, and a fire-magic user. Her strength, battle prowess, and capability to use mana skin is off the charts.
Not only she surpasses elves, but she was able to handle blows from five of the strongest elves, thereby justifying her title of “Lioness.” Mereoleona is far beyond “strong,” as she was able to instill fear in the mind of Rhya, the Faithless.
Fuegoleon Vermillion is the eldest son of one of the three Royal Houses of Clover Kingdom — House of Vermillion & the younger brother of Mereoleona. He is the current captain of Crimson Lion. He is also a fire-magic user and the owner of fire spirit — Salamander.
Fuegoleon is the perfect leader, & has shown the ability to motivate every soldier on the battlefield. Fuegoleon is extremely strong and was acknowledged by Mereleona herself about being as powerful as her. After receiving the fire spirit, his strength has reached unfathomable heights.
Yami Sukehiro is the fan-favorite captain of the Black Bull Magic Knight squad. Yami is the strongest Magic Knights squad captain in Black Clover and is the user of another arcane stage magic — Dark Magic.
In the manga, Yami has mastered both Ki and Mana Zone & has a new all-devouring spell – Black Moon Black Hole! His spells can erase any enemy magic that enters the area. In addition to that, Yami can further compress his Mana Zone to unleash and all-destroying attack: Dark Magic: Death Thrust.
He hails from a country other than the four kingdoms, where a concept of Ki is prevalent. Yami overcomes the extreme lack of speed of dark magic, by lacing his sword with darkness and using the katana swiftly to subdue his opponents.
Note: Other strong Magic Knight captains would include Julius Novachrono & Acier Silva. If Julius had not been the Wizard King & Acier had been alive, they would have taken the first and second position respectively without breaking a sweat.
