Asta Devil and the Demonic 5 leaf Grimoire
Every Black Clover fan who has been keeping up with the anime, as well as manga, is already aware of Asta’s Devil. In this post, we will be discussing all the possible theories behind the secrets of the anti-magic Kid, Asta, and his Five Leaf Grimoire.

How did Asta get Demon Powers?
It all starts when Asta and Yuno entered the Magic Knights Entrance Exam. Yuno gets a rare 4-leaf clover, and Asta gets a never-seen-before 5 leaf clover grimoire. The Grimoire is referred to as the Demon Grimoire throughout the series. There’s a Black Clover quote that says, “The three leaves of the clover represent faith, hope, and love. Within a fourth leaf dwells good luck. Within a fifth leaf… resides a demon”.
The Grimoire that chose Asta has the power of an Anti Magic Devil. The name of this devil is still unknown. However, we know one thing for sure. Among all other demons that have been introduced in the series, Asta’s Devil seems far more superior and stronger.
What is Anvil and Wevil in Black Clover?
Well, the term “Wevil” refers to Word Magic Devil. And, the term “Anvil” refers to Anti Magic Devil. Asta’s Devil is the one that’s called Anvil. And the other Demon we saw during the Eye of the Midnight Sun arc was called Wevil as it uses Word Magic.
Demons in Black Clover
So far, only four demons have been introduced in the series. While the anime did leave a lot of information about the devils, there’s no such big revelation to the Devil that resides within Asta’ Grimoire. Technically, there were 5 demons but we have excluded the Demon Licht turned into.
The first demon that was introduced to the series was Asta’s Demon. As of now, there is no hint of the magical prowess, powers, strength of him. Considering how confident the demon is, it’s safer to assume that the demon is far more superior than the other ones that have been introduced in the anime.
Secondly, We got introduced to Zagred the Wevil, Word Magic Devil. The main antagonist for the Midnight Sun arc, and the reason behind the massacre of the Elf tribe. He is also the one who plotted the reincarnation in order to get his hands on a grimoire. As he crumbles to death, we saw Asta’s Devil mocking him and his strength.

In the recent Heart Kingdom arc, we have been introduced to a few more demons. As of now, only two of them are introduced. But it is highly expected that Asta and the Black Bulls might encounter other strong Devil, including Zenon’s Devil. For now, we sure have an idea about Megicula and Lucifer.
Megicula is a high ranking devil who is Vanica’s devil. The curse on Acier Silva(Noelle’s mother) and princess Lolopechka were bestowed upon them by the Devil, Megicula.
The other one is Lucifero, the name itself comes from the Italian pronunciation of Lucifer. Lucifer is another high ranking devil who serves, Dante. The true strength of his devil is yet to be known, however, one thing is sure, the devil is one of the strongest ones from the Demonic Kingdom.
Recently, when Dante asks Lucifer of Asta’s Demon, he says that this demon is not among the superior ones. So no one knows much of his demon either.
Is there the Demon Kingdom in Black Clover?
There are high chances of having the Devil Kingdom in Black Clover. As there have been lots of Demon invading the other Kingdoms in the series. We could expect an entire demon race attacking all these Kingdom in the nearby future.
Technically, there are 52 cards in a deck. All the Kingdoms in Black Clover anime are based on the 4 divided ranks of a deck – Clover, Diamond, Heart, and Spade.
However, in each deck, there’s a Joker. What if this Joker denotes another Kingdom full of devils and demonic curses. What if Asta’s Devil comes from the Same kingdom? We will surely get an answer to this in the upcoming arcs of Black Clover.
What is the secret to Asta’s Demon strength?
There have been lots of secrets revolving around the strength and the true ability of Asta’s Devil. No matter how strong opponents appeared, we never saw the Devil take control of Asta’s body. Moreover, with ability as rare as Anti-Magic.
The demon sure is a way to destroy any kind of magic. And, as per our speculations, we might just get what we are looking forward to, in the current arc of Black Clover.

Asta’s Demon and Past
It seems just like the other Demons and Yuno, Asta also belongs to the Spade Kingdom. But, considering how the creator chose the Spade Kingdom for Yuno’s past makes things clear. Asta is not from any four of these Kingdoms.
In the recent episodes, Asta and the others fight a bug with man-made mana. So, there have been theories claiming, Asta being a homunculus created in a lab with zero magical prowess. But that may sound absurd as the creator has assured that Asta isn’t a homunculus.
But, as we look deeper into it. We realize the power Asta has, was somehow for Asta only. If anyone else were to use the Demon Grimoire, then they will end up getting their mana neglect by the Anti Magic Devil. Since he had no magical prowess, Asta could easily control the Grimoire.
This is a completely different topic, however, we did write something on the same. Do check it out here.
Is Asta’ Demon stronger than any other demon?
As we mentioned before, no other devil has ever heard of an Anti-magic Devil. Which makes it all the more assuring that the Demon within Asta’s Five Leaf Clover Grimoire has some kind of hidden strength or power to it, the others aren’t aware of.
There’s a popular theory on the internet regarding Asta’s Demon that claims, Asta’s Devil is actually absorbing all the magic Asta neglects. This is quite possible, as the demon we have seen could use more than 1 magic attribute. Absorbing the mana until he could either take away Asta’s body or become an opponent far more formidable.
The creator did answer how the Devil got into Asta’s grimoire but the background of him seems way far to get introduced in the series.
Will Asta Get any Stronger?
Devils are selfish beings, who make a pact with humans in order to take their body as a host. However, in Asta’s case – it seems the demon did take quite a liking to Asta. As he grew throughout the series. It’s a matter of time until we see an Asta Demon centric episode/chapter.
Asta is training on a regular basis to keep himself strong physically. On the other hand, if Asta were to completely master his Demonic powers, he’d be pretty much unbeatable.
Will Asta Become Wizard King?
Considering Asta as the main protagonist of the shounen anime series. It seems obvious that Asta will become a Wizard King in the future. However, there’s already way so many candidates to be the next Wizard King before Asta.
As for Yuno, he seems wise, but considering how the series is getting Asta-centric, it’s hard to believe that Yuno would be as popular as Asta until then.
We did write something regarding who will become the next Wizard King in Black Clover, you can check it out.
What if Asta is not from either of the Kingdom that we have seen so far?
Yes, that sounds ambiguous. And why would one believe this? You may not think the same way, after reading this popular theory from the internet.
If we stick to the basic definition, Mana is a form of life force that could produce magic. And it is obvious that without life forces, our bodies won’t operate until we die, so It’s definitely impossible for Asta to be born without any magical prowess.
So, the past of Asta holds another secret power that might get unveiled soon beside Asta’s Demon.
We have included everything available on the internet regarding Asta’s Devil. If there’s any other information regarding the demon – we will be the first one to update it. So, make sure you bookmark us for more info.
