Asta may be regularly outshined by his childhood friend, but it’s rare for him to be outdone by fellow members of the Black Bull. The combined strength of the Black Bull squad has survived the threat of terrorists, elves, and even demons. While working together, the Black Bulls are unstoppable, but how would each match up against the protagonist of Black Clover?
Asta has come a long way since he joined the ranks of the Magic Knights. Thanks to hard work, persistence, and an unrivaled dedication to training, he’s proven that even a powerless commoner can succeed as a Magic Knight. His power may be hard to rival, but the squad is full of a powerful mages who offer Asta some interesting sparring match-ups.
10 Yami Would Cut Straight Through Asta With Dimension Slash
Asta’s biggest advantages in combat lie in his Anti Magic weapons, physical endurance, and strength. Yami serves as a great counter to Asta’s physical endurance thanks to the time he’ spent training up his own skills as a swordsman.
The biggest question fans should be asking when considering an Asta vs. Yami matchup has to do with how the captain’s Dark Magic would fare against Asta’s Anti Magic. Considering how well Yami’s blade has worked against other devils, it’s hard to imagine that Asta could defeat Yami without giving in completely to Liebe’s power. At that point, Yami deserves a victory for forcing Asta to give up.
9 Asta Would Defeat Grey Before Drawing His Sword
Grey’s Transformation Magic is a powerful tool that the young mage is able to use to cast some ingenious spells. Unfortunately, Grey is more concerned about making eye contact with the people around her than honing her magical abilities into powerful and complicated techniques.
Without the help of her team, Grey would have a hard time dealing with Asta’s Anti Magic swordsmanship. It’d be impressive if the young mage even managed to overcome her timidity before facing the man who literally holds onto a devil.
8 Luck Outpaces Asta’s Big Muscles With His Powerful Lightning Magic
Luck has always been one of the Black Bull’s heaviest hitters. His lightning magic offers the young mage powerful offensive spells and buffs to his overall mobility. Asta may be faster than the average mage thanks to his rigorous physical training, but Luck’s speed and strength are enhanced by magic.
As long as Luck accounts for Asta’s Anti Magic sword, he should be able to quickly dispatch of the young magic-less commoner thanks to his incredible speed and powerful attacks.
7 Charmy’s Mana Recovery Is Meaningless Against Asta’s Anti Magic Abilities
Charmy may have the ancient powers of the dwarven people flowing through her blood, but that doesn’t mean she stands a chance against Asta and his Anti Magic.
The young food enthusiast uses her Cotton Creation Magic to create stamina-boosting food for her allies, but also has access to some powerful attack spells. During the attack on the Eye of the Midnight Sun, Charmy managed to defeat Rill in elf form, but Asta is a whole different beast than the Magic Knight captain enhanced by elven magic. But the demon inside of Asta would tear through Charmy’s Cotton Creation Magic with ease.
6 Secre Would Seal Asta With Arcane Magic That Not Even His Anti Magic Blade Could Cut
The trouble with Asta’s Anti Magic ability lies in its ties to the power of devils. Though devil magic is still largely a mystery for fans of Black Clover, it breaks the scale of magic used by the Magic Knights of Clover Kingdom.
Secre is one of the only characters in Black Clover who has personally cast a spell with forbidden magic and lived to tell the tale. After using forbidden magic to seal away a demon, Secre’s sealing magic took on a powerful new form that even Asta would have trouble dealing with. If Secre was able to seal a demon, she should have no trouble slowing Asta down.
5 Magna May Outrank Asta, But He Always Remains One Step Behind Him
Magna may be a fiery young mage, but he’s always fallen a bit short of the Black Bull’s top tier. It seems that no matter how far Magna pushes his Fire Magic, Asta is prepared with a new Anti Magic technique to motivate the hot-headed commoner into another strict training regime. Unless Magna is able to drastically increase his mana reserves or discovers some sort of complex Fire Magic technique, Asta would walk away from this battle with another win under his belt.
4 Finral Could Overwhelm Asta With Spatial Magic
Both Langris and Finral have proven that Spatial Magic is one of the most powerful magic types in the Clover Kingdom. The ability to move through space at will and manipulate the way other objects fit into that space has an incredible number of powerful applications in combat.
Asta may be more battle-ready than Finral, but if properly motivated, Yami’s wheels have proven that his green-hued Spatial Magic can be extremely difficult to deal with. Finral may have to resort to hit-and-run tactics until Asta is too tired to fight, but as long as his mana reserves hold out, Finral should be capable of defeating the powerless commoner.
3 Gordon’s Curse Magic Is Still Much Too Weak To Take Out Asta
Gordon’s Curse Magic is powerful, but it still lacks the forbidden potency to defeat Asta. Curse Magic has close ties to Megicula, which makes it the ideal form of magic to use against a boy who wields the power of a devil.
If Gordon had spent more time training to understand the Agrippa family’s Curse Magic with his father, he may have devised a way to defeat someone with Asta’s abilities. Unfortunately, Gordon lacks the motivation and the magic to stand up to Asta.
2 Nacht Can Call On His Own Devil To Overwhelm Asta
Nacht only recently made his anime debut, but fans have already embraced the demon-possessed vice-captain of the Black Bull. Thanks to his incredibly powerful Shadow Magic, Nacht easily won the hearts of Black Clover fans.
Nacht outpaces Asta in every category other than physical strength. He has more experience interacting with demons, more time on the battlefield, and way more magic power. Before Asta could even swing his Anti Magic sword, Nacht would have him caged in a shadowy prison with no hope of escaping.
1 Zora’s Traps Are No Match For Asta’s Magic-Seeking Sword
During the tournament to decide who would join the Royal Knights, Zora’s Trap Magic proved to be an incredible asset to Asta and Mimosa. Zora’s ingenuity pushed his team through the tournament and won him a spot on the squad, but that doesn’t mean he stands a chance against Asta in a battle of strength.
Asta proved during the Royal Knights Tournament that his Anti Magic sword can easily deal with Trap Magic. Using his Bull Thrust technique, Asta can seek out Zora’s traps and dispel them with Anti Magic. Without his traps, Zora is left to deal with Asta in close quarters combat — a fight he’s bound to lose.
