Magna, adept in Fire Magic, brings a punk-like attitude to his fights. Despite having less mana than royals, he compensates with a fighting style that uses fire magic to create projectiles and powerful attacks. Magna's spell, Soul Chain Deathmatch, equalizes mana between him and his opponents, making battles a test of willpower.
8 Gauche Adlai
Gauche, a former noble from House Adlai, wields mirror magic. Using his mirrors to reflect energy attacks, his devastating "Mirror Refrain" attack is amplified by his mirror eye magical tool. Gauche's power and tragic past make him one of the strongest members of the Black Bulls.
7 Secre Swallowtail
Secre Swallowtail, the former servant of the first Wizard King of the Clover Kingdom, played a crucial role in protecting the protagonist, Asta.

Luck Voltia, a 5th Class Junior Magical Knight, is known for his love of battles and relentless spirit. Initially ostracized due to his fervor, Luck found solace upon joining the Black Bulls. He specializes in lightning magic, harnessing it as both a projectile and reinforcement. Utilizing lightning, Luck augments his speed and power, making him an exceptional one-on-one combatant. Following months of intense training, Luck achieved a new level of power that enables him to channel natural mana into spells, conjuring authentic lightning.
5 Charmy Pappitson
Charmy Pappitson, a 1st Class Junior Magic Knight and a dwarf-human hybrid, possesses an extraordinary blend of magical abilities. She can manipulate two distinct magic types: cotton and food magic. Her Cotton Magic allows her to create and manipulate cotton at will, even summoning sheep to aid her in combat. Additionally, her Food Magic enables her to consume other types of magic, replenishing her own reserves. Charmy's proficiency in wielding two different forms of magic grants her versatility and unpredictability on the battlefield. Through training in the Heart Kingdom, she has unlocked greater control over both her Food and Cotton Magic, enhancing her capabilities and making her an even more formidable adversary.
4 Nacht Faust
Nacht Faust serves as the trusted vice captain of the Black Bulls. After his family's ill-fated attempt to study and control devils resulted in the loss of his parents and brother, Nacht underwent a transformation, aspiring to become an honorable fighter. His Shadow Magic grants him the ability to traverse through shadows, covering vast distances and even immobilizing opponents.

Notably, her most striking ability is the Valkyrie armor, which shrouds her in water and empowers her with a formidable water lance. Further training allowed her to attain True Water Magic, and by merging with the water spirit Undine, Noelle ascends to the rank of a Saint Stage magician.
Asta engages in combat wielding his extraordinary anti-magic swords in the renowned Black Clover manga. Despite being a 3rd Class Magic Knight, Asta possesses a unique advantage by possessing the rare five-leaf clover grimoire. In a world where magic reigns supreme, Asta stands apart as an anomaly, born without any magical abilities. However, he compensates for this disparity with his remarkable ability. Asta can summon anti-magic swords capable of dispelling any magic they come into contact with. Although his tactical decision-making may not always be the most astute, his proficiency with anti-magic swords establishes him as one of the most formidable fighters in the entire series.
As the embodiment of magic's antithesis, Asta harnesses immense power. Equipped with a repertoire of weapons including a short sword, claymore, and greatsword, each possessing distinct properties for canceling magic, he proves his versatility. Through intensive training under Nacht, Asta attains mastery over his Unite Form, merging with his devil partner, Liebe, thereby vastly amplifying his anti-magic capabilities. Further honing his skills, he achieves mastery over the swordsman technique known as Zetten, which synergizes the potent forces of Ki and Anti-Magic.
