Will Asta become a Demon? When and Why? Is Asta a Devil?

Despite being Mana-less, Asta is on his way to becoming one of the most powerful magic knights in the Clover Kingdom thanks to his unique Grimoire.

Will Asta become influenced by the devil within his Grimoire, throw away his plans to become the wizard king, and turn into a Demon himself? Or will he forge his path forward?

Asta has not become a Demon, yet despite hosting and borrowing the powers of the devil within his Grimoire. By using his powers, Asta can transform into a demonic state.

Will Asta become a Demon? When and why?

Taking all of this into consideration, there might come a day when Asta might either lose control, and the devil in the Grimoire takes possession of him or takes full control over the devil. Either way, if these come to pass, then chances are, he will turn into a demon.

Is Asta a Demon?

Asta is not a Demon. Yet. This is proved when the Witch Queen uses her blood to heal Asta’s arms and discovers that he is not from the elf tribe or someone special but has a mutation that makes him mana less and gives him the ability to use Anti-Magic, he is not special, and that is what makes him special.

However, he does have a Demon within his Five-Leaf Grimoire whose powers he can borrow to fight.

I. Asta’s Demon Transformation

After the Witch Queen used her blood to remove the limits on Asta’s Anti Magic, Asta learned to channel antimagic throughout his body and attain a form that coursed through him and covered part of his body.

This form is drawn to strong magic and greatly increases his strength and speed while granting him the ability to fly. The overflowing energy swirls around him and erodes magic near him.

He drew this power from the devil residing within his Grimoire. Before, Asta was not completely in control of his actions.

At the same time, in this form, however, after the intense battle against the elves and the devil, Asta has gained better control over his transformation, being able to use a great portion of its power as his own to where he does not fly around out of control.

II. Will Asta become a Demon?

Asta, so far in the series, has a lot of connections to the devilish. He has no mana, a devil that resides in his Grimoire and can use his powers to transform into a demonic state.

Another thing to consider is that only demons can wield Five Leaf Grimoires, with only Asta as an exception.

Taking all of this into consideration, there might come a day when Asta might either lose control, and the devil within the Grimoire takes possession of him, or he takes full control over the devil. Either way, if these come to pass, then he will turn into a demon.

Who is Asta’s Devil?

Asta’s devil, Lieve, is the devil of antimagic and his own step-brother. Five hundred years ago, when Zagred (devil) failed to acquire Licht’s grimoire of despair, it was later stranded and found by Asta’s mother, Lichita. Asta later received the grimoire of antimagic.

Asta later received this Grimoire in which resided the devil of antimagic and became the only person able to wield it due to his mana deficiency.

Asta’s Grimoire of Despair

When the owner of a four-leaf clover Grimoire falls into absolute despair, the book is corrupted by its deep despair and hatred, becoming what is known as a Grimoire of Despair. During this process, the clover turns black and develops the fifth leaf.

These five-leaf clover grimoires can be taken and possessed by devils, who use the books to manifest their true powers. This grimoire then becomes the only link between the humans and the devils.

When Licht felt deep despair about the massacre of elves, his four-leaf clover turned five, birthing the grimoire of despair. After the devil of kotodama magic failed to acquire it, the devil of antimagic took the grimoire.

Asta later received this Grimoire in which resided the devil of antimagic and became the only person able to wield it due to his mana deficiency.

Devil of Anti Magic

The devil of antimagic is the devil who resides in Asta’s five-leaf grimoire.

It is unknown how Liebe generates antimagic, but so far, he has no magic and has been able to blanket negate magic.

During his fight with Asta, Dante asks Lucifero about Liebe, but Lucifero does not know the devil and considers it to be a low-ranking devil due to its spell-erasing power.
