Black Clover really knows how to maintain the suspense, even though we have seen the demon that resides within Asta’ grimoire, there isn’t an actual revealing of the strength or the whereabouts of that Demon, making fans all the more agog to Asta’s Demon’ true identity. Well, that’s what we are here for, discussing all the possible secrets of Asta’s Demon. So, without any more delays, let us get this started.
(Note: The blog may contain spoilers from the Black Clover manga and anime If you aren’t keeping up with the anime or haven’t read the manga. You may stop reading now)
Everyone who’s keeping up with the Black Clover anime knows there’s a demon inside Asta’s Five Leaf Clover grimoire. There’s even a Black Clover quote, 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. So there are quite a few possibilities of either Asta being a demon child, somewhat half-demon and half-human child, or Asta getting some hidden demonic power from his parents.
Since the anime started, Asta manifests a hidden power that is beyond Magic and is yet to be discovered within the Clover Kingdom.
There’s another cool theory which actually might be true. What if Asta’s demon is taking in all the magic power Asta neglects. In short, all the magic attacks Asta neglects aren’t actually neglected. They’re being absorbed by Asta’s Demon. Now, you must be thinking how can a Demon use more than one form of magic or collect more than one type of magic, then let us take you back to the time the first Wizard King and the Demon fought. Got it now? The Demon was using all types of magic.
The Demon that got summoned back in the era of The First Wizard King was using the all magic-mana types. Which makes it more clear how Asta’s Demon can easily absorb the magic that is being neglected (so-called) by Asta.
Who is Asta’s Demon and how did he get inside the Grimoire is still a question left unanswered. The most possible answer would be, Just like Yuno’s Wind Spirit, Asta’s Demon is a Demonic Spirit. Strong enough to devour all magic-mana types of this era. The demon seems to be holding in and absorbing all the magic power until he gets the minimum amount of magic required to obtain a physical form or take over Asta’s body.
Another theory on Asta’s Demon might sound little Narutoish. What makes me say that? You will find it out soon.
After hours of scrolling on the Internet, we finally got through something that was making sense. What If Asta’s Demon was with Asta since the beginning? Wait, I’ll explain.
Asta is a descendant from a demon from the dimension of demons. And Asta actually had some magic power inside him but the demon cancelled it out. Basic maths.
If we stick to the basic definition, Mana is a form of life force that is used to 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 until or unless he was created as an artificial being (i.e. a homunculus that we saw in the anime Full Metal Alchemist). The creator of Black Clover made it easier for us by denying that Asta isn’t an artificial being. In the world of Black Clover, mana in the Normal World is positive while mana in the Other World (Demon) is negative. If the two manas blend together, they would negate each other, which can result in the explosion and disappearance of the two manas.
So here comes the Naruto reference, What if the Demon got sealed within Asta by his parents during an attack on them. And, Asta doesn’t belong to this Kingdom, he belongs to the Spade Kingdom, known for their association with the Demons. Asta’s father formed a patch with the demons and sealed one within Asta. Resulting in Asta and Asta’s Demon cancelling out the magic, hence making him a kid with no magic powers.
Well, that’s what we have for today. Theories are possibilities that might or might not be true, we appreciate much more theories and other possibilities in the comment section. Do let us know what do you think about it. Make sure to follow our Instagram for exclusive anime news: @TheSpoilerGuy
