Black Clover franchise has become one of the most popular anime-manga franchises these days. The current arc – Spade Kingdom arc is dealing with a much broader perspective than just the Clover Kingdom.
The current arc introduced various new characters like Princess Lolopechka and the Dark Triad from Heart and Spade Kingdoms, respectively.
These new characters, being the strongest of all, turned the rankings upside-down. So, let’s see who is the strongest character in the current Black Clover Universe.
Note for anime fans: SPOILERS FROM MANGA WILL BE HIDDEN EXCEPT PANELS, SO DON’T WORRY.
Gaja is a Stage Zero mage of the Heart Kingdom and the spirit guardian of Princess Lolopechka & the water spirit – Undine. He is an honorable and strong warrior who once battled the devil Megicula and got away with just a scar.
Gaja possesses immense magic power and can levitate without using magic, which makes him a force to be reckoned with.
On top of that, his formidable lightning magic and Heart Kingdom’s usage of mana of nature gives him an edge to come above Yami.
Mereoleona Vermillion is the current captain of Crimson Lions. Mereoleona is much much stronger than most of the mages in the Clover Kingdom. If not for her less interest in politics, she was the first choice for the leadership of Crimson Lions.
She is a fire-magic user. Her battle with Rhya, the Faithless proves her mantle of the ‘Lioness.’ and her control over mana.
She can use Mana Skin on par with the elves. Except for being a strong fire magic user, she is a great leader, teacher, and strategist. She was also the captain of the Royal Knights.
Yami Sukehiro is the fan-favorite captain of the Black Bull Magic Knight squad and is the user of another arcane stage magic — Dark Magic. Recently, in the manga, Yami has mastered both Ki and Mana Zone & has a new all-devouring spell — Black Moon Black Hole!
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.
7 Fuegoleon Vermillion
Fuegoleon Vermillion, the former captain of Crimson Lions, is the strongest fire mage and Magic Knight in the Clover Kingdom. He is also the most desired candidate for the title of 29th Wizard King followed by Yami and Nozel Silva.
While being an excellent Fire Magic-user Fuegoleon has shown the best leadership qualities amongst other Magic Knights Captain and is a renowned strategist for war.
After Fana’s defeat, fire spirit Salamander chose Fuegoleon as its next partner. With his latest upgrade, he was able to beat the likes of elves with a single blow.
6 Princess Lolopechka
Princess Lolopechka is the current ruler of the Heart Kingdom, and the wielder of the water spirit – Undine. She is a strong and just queen and prioritizes the safety of her citizens.
Lolopechka is a user of Water magic and the Spirit magic. She has immense magic power, so much that she can rival an entire Magic Knights squad by herself(and that’s saying something!). She is also able to hold a kingdom-wide mana barrier all the time.
5 Julius Novachrono
Julius Novachrono is the 28th Wizard King of the Clover Kingdom. He is a fantastic fighter and even more fantastic ruler. He is just and righteous and is loved by his subjects more than the real king of the Clover Kingdom. He also loves to discover new types of magic.
Julius is a user of Time magic, which is extremely rare magic as he can control and manipulate time itself.
His immense magic reserves and grasp over Mana Skin is on par with the strongest of the elves. Even without Time magic, his experience, skill set, and mana make him one of the deadliest opponents in Black Clover.
Note: Although he is currently not in his prime, he is just too strong to not be on this list. He died at the beginning of Elf Ressurection arc but brought himself back to life using his Time Magic, at the expense of a considerable portion of his power.
Zenon is one of the three rulers of the Spade Kingdom and the weakest member of the Dark Triad. He is relentless, strong, and an excellent military commander.
He is a user of Bone Magic – magic that can create and manipulate bones. He also possesses immense magic power with a rough estimation of 80% of what Megicula owns.
Zenon is stronger than the Devil of Kotodama magic and is feared by even Luck Voltia.
Vanica(Left), Dante(Centre), Zenon(Right)
Vanica is also one of the three rulers of Spade Kingdom and the only female member of the Dark Triad. She likes to do things with a blast – utterly opposite of Zenon.
Her magic ability is unknown; however, her being a member Dark Triad says a lot about her battle prowess. She is known to have immense mana, even on par with the devil(s) itself.
Dante is currently the strongest mage in the Black Clover universe. He is the third ruler of the Spade Kingdom and the leader of the Dark Triad. He has a twisted personality and sees people with low mana as nothing but his pawns.
Dante is an Arcane Stage mage with his magic being Gravity magic. Besides his overpowered magic, Dante has the endless mana from the devil and excellent control over it.
Note: Both Dante & Vanica are known to have magic on par with the “devil”. But Megicula is the main antagonist of the arc, so the devil of Kotadama magic is used as a reference for Dante and Vanica.
If the story reveals the “devil” to be Megicula, both Dante and Vanica will acquire #1 and #2 positions.
1 Megicula – Strongest Black Clover Character
Megicula is a devil and currently the strongest character in the Black Clover universe. He is a devil in alliance with the Spade Kingdom mages. Megicula possesses incalculable magic power and is a user of Curse magic.
He is the one who put a curse on the mother of Noel & Nozel’s mother – Acier Silva, which eventually led to her death. He has currently placed a curse on Lolopechka – the princess of the Heart Kingdom.
Note: There are various strong characters like Devil of Kotodama magic, Licht, and Lemiel Silvamillion Clover(First Wizard King) & Acier Silva – who are not mentioned in this list because of their death.
If alive, all three of them would be easily among the top 5 with the exception of Acier Silva.
