Mereoleona has got to be more beast than human. I mean, even without the Fire Spirit Salamander, who chose her brother, she is among the most powerful fire mages alive.

Just thinking back to her battle against the elves makes me wanna give her a standing ovation. It was a 1v5, for crying out loud!

She stands up to Lucifero and refuses to back down, even punching him and later mocking him.

And the upcoming battle with his former senior Yami Sukehiro and twin brother Nacht Faust is quite anticipated.

5. Noelle Silva

Magic – Water Magic

Noelle has come a long way from a hesitant and insecure novice who couldn’t even control her Water Magic to a strong fighter served by the Water Spirit Undine herself. 

After losing Undine, we all thought Noelle’s overall power would go down by a LOT similar to Naruto after losing Kurama recently. However, Tabata pulled a fast one on us and gave Noelle something better than an elemental spirit.

Noelle is now the host of Sea God – Leviathan and she’s strong as f**k!

Even before Undine, during the Elf Reincarnation Arc, Noelle’s whole Sea Goddess thing showed us how immense her mana levels are.

Her Valkyrie Armor borrowed from one of her mother’s spells and enhanced her offense, defense, and mobility.

Noelle’s battle and victory against Vanica were quite emotional. When Megicula emerged, she didn’t back down either, eventually destroying her heart. Saint Stage Noelle is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with.

4. Sukehiro Yami

Species – Human

Magic – Dark Magic

Our favorite, Captain Yami, is one of those characters who entered the show powerful but has only grown mightier since. He is constantly surpassing his limits like his protégé, Asta.

Yami could take on Licht at full power early on. He uses Dark Cloaked Dimension Slash: Equinox to slice the devil Zagred in half.

He is even able to defeat Captain Dorothy and shatter her Glamour World, which is a commendable feat.

Yami is a master swordsman and also possesses the ability to sense Ki, which gives him a sixth sense to perceive things others can’t.

Additionally, after the Qliphoth Advent Ritual, Yami gets a modified body structure comparable to Asta’s devil possession. He is overflowing with magic and is a legend, and I will fight whoever disagrees.

Also, Yami was able to fight the formidable Dante and, despite being heavily injured, deals some blows to the Demon King, Lucifero. None of the other Captains could do this, not even Mereoleona.

Recently, we discovered that Yami apparently massacred the whole of the Yami clan apart from his sister, Ichika.

Yami is supposed to be a samurai assassin in addition to a powerful mage. If he masters Zetten like his sister, his swordsmanship, Dark Magic, ki, and determination are to take him to the top.

3. Yuno Grinberryall x Sylph

Species- Human

Magical powers- Wind magic + Star magic

Also, Yuno possesses a Four-Leaf Grimoire, which contains a powerful wind spirit named Sylph which enables him to access Spirit Dive, which enhances Yuno’s abilities, like boosting his power, increasing control over the wind, and the ability to use the unique spirit-based techniques.

Asta is the courageous and most persevering character and is driven by the will to never give up on becoming the Wizard King. He has beaten all odds time and time again in a world of magic where he possesses Anti-magic.

The source of Asta’s Anti-magic is a low-ranking demon, Leibe residing within Asta’s grimoire, the five-leaf clover.

Asta and Leibe share a firm bond and portray the central aspect of the series, painting the power of friendship, overcoming personal struggles, and inspiring each other.

Both of them together can access a powerful form called Devil Union Mode. Which significantly amplifies Asta’s strength, speed, and magical resistance.

The Devil Union mode makes them truly invincible to any human or demon!
