Golden Dawn

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goldendawn_insignia.png
The Magic Knight Squad regarded as the best in the Clover Kingdom, Golden Dawn is mostly comprised of nobles and royals.
  • The Ace: They are the strongest Magic Knight squad, in the Clover Kingdom consistently earning the most stars.
  • Meaningful Name: A "Golden Dawn" is made by a "Midnight Sun", which hints at the two groups' true connection.
  • Odd Name Out: It's the only squad that isn't named after an animal.
  • Sharing a Body: Ever since Patry/"Licht" cast the reincarnation spell, nearly every known member of the Golden Dawn, with the exception of Mimosa, has been shown or implied to be a reincarnated elf. This may have been deliberate, as William says that the mana guided him to choose his subordinates, which suggests that Patry might have been influencing him to gather reincarnated elves together.

    William Vangeance 

William Vangeance

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (Japanese), Josh Grelle (English), Jerry Jewell (English, episode 53)note 

Debut: Chapter 2 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: World Tree

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_william_vangeance.png
Unmasked 

The captain of the Golden Dawn, a mysterious man who hides his face behind a mask. Little is known about him.

Uses World Tree Magic, capable of creating huge trees that absorb mana from within the earth. Once harvested, this natural mana can be converted and re-used by Vangeance for various purposes.


  • “Awesome McCool” Name: Captain William Vangeance, especially considering that people never refer to him without using Captain, so most of the time, his name is simply Captain Vangeance.
  • Cool Mask: Completely obscures the upper half of his face and is one of his defining features. Used as an insult against him when Asta is arguing with Klaus. Vangeance himself thought it looked lame when he got it, but he was so happy when Julius gave it to him that he wore it anyway. The mask is given justification in Chapter 79. Captain Vangeance wears the mask in order to hide what appears to be a Port Wine Stain Birthmark that completely covers the upper part of his face.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Because of his birthmark and his being a bastard, he was thought to be a cursed child, and once his noble father took him in because his heir had died, Vangeance's stepmother made his childhood hell. Only after he met Julius did his life starts to get better.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Though his full name is given on his introduction, everyone in the series usually calls him "Captain" or "Captain Vangeance".
  • A Father to His Men: Said to be able to connect with his squad members. A characteristic that is also seen in Licht, with whom he shares his body.
  • First-Name Basis: He and Julius address each other by first name. Licht also does the same for him.
  • Green Thumb: And quite the violent one, for he has World Tree Magic, which not only absorbs mana around him, but also creates giant trees to attack.
  • Hero Worship: It's pretty clear he holds Julius, the Wizard King, in very high regards. It's revealed that he helped Vangeance at one point with his face problem, and the esteem seems to come from there. His friendship with Julius is why Vangeance hasn't the heart to choose between him and Licht, so he lets Licht take over his body.
  • Heroic Bastard: He is an illegitimate child who was only accepted in his noble father's family because of his powerful magic and because the heir had died.
  • Identical Stranger: Has the same body frame, voice, and Ki as Licht, the leader of the Eye of the Midnight Sun. They don't seem to be the same, however, once Vangeance reveals his face to Yami. Later on, it turns out the reason they have so many similarities is that they share the same body. They aren't the same people, given that they have different pasts, but somehow, Licht managed to get control of his body.
  • Interspecies Friendship: Revealed to consider Licht, the elvish leader of the Eye of the Midnight Sun, a dear friend, and so lets Licht take over him.
  • Obviously Evil: His sinister appearance set aside, his behavior doesn't help ward off suspicions, with his thought about how troublesome it would if if Yuno did not become stronger, and it's clear that after Licht is introduced, he has a connection to him, and even Yami and Julius suspect so. It's later shown, though, that he isn't Licht when he reveals his face to Yami, so it seems that this is subverted. But then it turns out that he really does have a link to Licht as he lets Licht take over his body.
  • Red Herring: As covered in Identical Stranger above, Vangeance shares a plethora of traits with the Big Bad Licht, the early plot revealed someone in the Golden Dawn to be a high official in Licht's rankings, and it's revealed that even in-universe people were suspecting him, despite that, it seems that he is just a very reserved person and after he shows his face to Yami, suspicions of him seem to be cleared. And then in Chapter 142, this is ultimately subverted, as it turns out that Vangeance and Licht do have a connection together when Vangeance suddenly turns into Licht. From how they speak, though, they're technically not the same guy; it's more that they share the same body.
  • The Reveal: Not only is he indeed connected to Licht, but Licht can also take over his body.
  • Sadistic Choice: He has to choose between Julius and Licht, both of whom he treasures, but are fundamentally against each other, so instead of choosing, he decides to let Julius and Licht decide for him, and then has Licht take over him.
  • Scars Are Forever: He reveals to Yami that he has had his facial scar since he was born, and not even magic can heal it, so he must wear a mask to hide it. Later on, it's subverted, when it's revealed that it disappears once Licht is in control of his body.

    Langris Vaude 

Langris Vaude

Voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa (Japanese), Clifford Chapin (English)

Debut: Chapter 70 (Manga), Episode 48 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Spatial

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bclover_langris_vaude.png

The younger Vaude brother. A direct underling of Vangeance as the Vice-Captain of Golden Dawn, and somewhat of a sadist.

Like his brother, Langris has an affinity for Spatial Magic. Unlike his brother, Langris's spells erase whole chunks of space, tearing holes through magic, immobile objects and living persons alike.


  • The Ace: The second most powerful member of Golden Dawn and the heir to his family.
  • Ax-Crazy: It's left ambiguous how much of it is his own attitude and how much of it is being possessed by an elf, but Langris is not completely sane. While inter-class prejudice is common, his lifelong pursuit to make sure Finral is never happier than him and instant burning desire to hurt or murder Asta from the moment he met him don't do him any favors in this department.
  • Arranged Marriage: Betrothed to a noblewoman named Finnes, whom he finds to be plain. It doesn't help that she and Finral have a thing for each other, just one more thing about his brother that annoys him.
  • Big Brother Bully: Inverted. He is the younger brother and treats Finral horribly.
  • Broken Ace: Under his perfection, he is a mentally unstable man who envies his supposedly inferior brother for being happier than him.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Finral's Abel, to the point he tries to kill his brother during their fight in the tournament.
  • Child Prodigy: From the moment he developed his Tele-Frag powers, his parents refused to admit that anyone could be better than him, and while this was extremely unhealthy, they did have a point. Flashbacks reveal that he's a natural when it comes to magic, studies, athletics, and other types of hard work. His only weakness was (and still is) his anger and awful social skills. Other nobles criticizing him for this, while praising Finral for his natural talent at being a socialite. His parents telling him that he was perfect compared to Finral is part of what starts Langris' Sanity Slippage.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: That he can use spatial magic offensively gives him a massive advantage in battle but it's pretty clear that he doesn't have any strategies if he runs up against someone that he can't just Tele-Frag. Both Finral and Asta had methods that countered his magic and all he could do was try to overwhelm them by spamming attacks, which worked against the comparatively less powerful Finral but wasn't as effective against Asta.
  • Destructive Savior: His power causes a lot of damage and he doesn't care about it or even about civilians getting caught in the crossfire.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He cannot for his life grasp why people would like Finral over himself, unable to understand that being a superior mage doesn't translate to actual acceptance among others if you behave horribly. Best showcased when he's baffled over how Finnes, who he recognizes as a kind soul, could see Finral as a better mage because of his friendly and outgoing demeanor when it's those traits that would appeal to her to start with.
  • Foreshadowing: In Chapter 127, Finral notes that Langris's mana reminds him of Vetto and Fana's. Come Chapter 172, Langris is shown to be a reincarnated elf just like them.
  • Hate at First Sight: While Langris had an entire childhood to build his all-consuming envy of Finral because of growing up with the very real threat of Finral becoming better than him, Asta's mere existence infuriates him to irrational levels. It's bad enough when they first meet and Asta shows him up despite being a loudmouth commoner, but the longer he's around Asta during their two encounters just increases the amount of rage and violence he wants to inflict on him. He was so dead set on killing Asta during their fight at the magic knight games that it took everything Asta had been saving for Yuno to knock Langris out before he or Langris himself ended up dead. It's particularly notable because while he does still hate them and thinks of them as garbage for various reasons, he doesn't have the same degree of murderous hatred and Unstoppable Rage towards Yuno or the other Black Bulls other than Finral despite them having a lot in common with why he seems to loathe Asta.
  • Ineffectual Loner: During his fight with Asta's team, he orders Sekke and Fragil to not interfere. Guess what happens next?
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex:
    • He has been praised as the superior brother from the beginning of his life. As a result, when he started hearing about the fact that while people do consider him stronger, most people like Finral better for his outgoing and nice personality, he flipped over the fact that his brother can be better than him at anything at all. When Finral shows signs of being a genuine strong opponent to him, he snaps even further and attempts to kill him during the tournament.
    • This also the main source of his irrational hatred of Asta. He already had Hate at First Sight for him, but Langris goes completely off the deep end at the notion that an annoying, friend of his brother, magic-less commoner like Asta would ever have a chance at beating him. After this, he spends the entirety of his match with Asta's team trying to murder Asta as violently as possible with the tenacity of a wild animal. It turns out that the only people who believed him to be superior were his own parents, while the rest of the noble society believed Finral was better due to his natural social skills. Langris was the only one of his family to understand there was a contradiction between everyone else and his own family. His inability to process that his parents could be wrong about his complete superiority to Finral begins his Sanity Slippage.
  • In the Blood: Both he and Finral have crippling self-esteem problems, but cope with them in completely opposite ways. While Finral became an Extreme Doormat, Langris became a Sadist.
  • Jerkass: He looks down on his brother, insults the Black Bulls with no provocation, and doesn't care about the destruction his magic causes.
  • Number Two: He serves as Vangeance's right-hand man.
  • Parental Favouritism: His parents disowned his brother to make him the heir.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Always has a smug smile on his face. That is, until he drops it during his fight with Finral.
  • Reality Ensues: He's acknowledged as a powerful mage but his contemptible personality means others don't really like him and prefer Finral who's more social and amiable.
  • Sharing a Body: Implied during the tournament; Julius believed he has connections to the Eye of the Midnight Sun, and during his fight with Finral, his mana is shown to be similar to Vetto and Fana's. Once the elf revival is done, he's shown to share his body with the soul of Ratri, a dead elf who also is Patry's cousin.
  • Space Master: A user of spatial magic like his brother. Instead of teleporting to different locations his magic teleports matter out of existence.
  • Tele-Frag: His magic teleports and erases matter altogether. Its destructive capabilities made his parents favor him over Finral.

    Mimosa Vermillion 

Mimosa Vermillion

Voiced by: Asuka Nishi (Japanese), Bryn Apprill (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 11 (Manga), Episode 12 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Plant

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_mimosa_vermillion.png

A shy and sweet young noblewoman and a newcomer to the Golden Dawn, like Yuno. Her unassuming demeanor hides a small mean streak, which melts away once she completes a mission alongside her cousin Noelle.

Mimosa specializes in Plant Magic, with most of her spells revolving around healing her teammates or scouting the area.


  • Betty and Veronica: The Betty to Asta's Archie and Noelle's Veronica because she is much kinder and gentler. Incidentally, both of them are royalty instead of one or the other.
  • Character Development: During the Royal Knights Tournament, she is much more capable, headstrong and competent in battle, especially as a support for Asta and a healer.
  • Girly Girl: To contrast with Noelle's tsundere. Mimosa is quite polite and carefree, but a bit insensitive compared to her harsher but more emotive cousin. On the other hand, she's not sure what to make of her budding feelings for Asta.
  • Green Thumb: Her magic involves the manipulation of plant life. She can even make large plants grow inside a long-abandoned ruin. She uses them to heal herself and others in addition to making maps of the dungeon she is currently exploring, making her a vital source of navigation advice through the otherwise hazardous area.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • She's actually rather disgusted with the nobles' emphasis on talent over effort, despite the pride she bears in her name. This is partially due to the fact that Mimosa's family used her to put themselves at a higher standing, due to Noelle's ineptitude. As a result, she admires how hard Noelle is willing to work to gain the respect of her family.
    • Despite her role as a support mage and meek personality, she has both at least one attack spell and some considerable leadership skills. Seeing the sweet and polite Mimosa taking charge was certainly a surprise to her teammates.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Mentions Noelle's struggles with her magic as casually as one would the weather. Unlike Klaus, she doesn't seem outwardly malicious about it. Noelle notes that this is not the first time this happened. Even still, they're close enough that Noelle goes out of her way to defend her instead of rushing for the Treasure Room as planned.
  • Instant Armor: Plant Form: Healing Princess Gown, not really armor, but it instantly covers Mimosa's body in flowers to enhance her healing magic.
  • Meaningful Name: A Mimosa is a type of flowering tree. It is also the name of a cocktail that is often served in high-class events.
  • Rescue Romance: After Asta saves her, and the rest of the group, from Mars during the Dungeon Exploration Arc, she confesses to Noelle that she can't stop thinking about him.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Another member of royalty like Noelle, and also a Magic Knight.
  • Ship Tease: Post-Dungeon Exploration Arc sees her flustered around Asta, and silently gushing about him.
  • Super Cute Super Powers: Her Plant magic manifests as bright and colorful flowers, and she can even form a dress for herself made of flowers that boosts her healing ability.
  • Truth Serums: The anime has one of her magic spells force people to speak honestly.
  • White Mage: Explicitly described as the healer of the group and a support-type sorceress.
  • White Sheep: Of the Golden Dawn, being the only seen person who is not a reincarnated elf.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Her uniform as a member of the Golden Dawn includes a Grade B.

    Klaus Lunettes 

Klaus Lunettes

Voiced by: Takuma Terashima (Japanese), Aaron Roberts (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 11 (Manga), Episode 6 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Steel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_klaus_lunettes.png

An arrogant and serious member of a noble family that dislikes the new peasant recruit Yuno. After completing a dungeon alongside Asta and Yuno, he significantly mellows out and strives to improve both his behavior and his magic. He becomes friends with Asta and Yuno from that point forward.

Uses Steel Magic, manipulating metal to forge a variety of finely-crafted items, such as barricades, spears, drills, or chariots.


  • Adaptational Expansion: He appears much earlier in the anime, introducing himself to Yuno.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: He never stops flaunting the superior magical reserves of nobility and believes that commoners such as the Black Bulls are nothing more than trash. He isn't actually as powerful as he thinks he is as he is quickly trashed by Mars, and Yuno is forced to stay with him rather than going to the Treasure Room.
  • Blue Blood: He's constantly talking about how he's a member of the nobility.
  • Break the Haughty: He's being subjected to this as his own commoner teammate (Yuno) and the members of the Black Bulls one-up him at every turn. It culminates in his final emotional apology in Chapter 21:
    Klaus: [hugging both Asta and Yuno tightly] You two... I'm so, so sorry!! I wouldn't acknowledge you because you were peasants. I'm ashamed of myself! The both of you... are magnificent Magic Knights of the Clover Kingdom!
  • Character Development: He goes from the textbook definition of a By-the-Book Cop and Upper-Class Twit to a much more empathetic individual to the point of hilarity. Even his own teammates are rather shocked by the change. Additionally, ever since the Dungeon Exploration Arc, Asta, the young peasant that he once saw as inferior garbage and a joke to the magic knights, is now his role model, and strives to be just like him.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He may be an elitist jerk, but he's sickened by what the Diamond Kingdom did to produce a mage like Mars.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: His magic is to create and manipulate metal to create weapons and barriers.
  • Hypocrite: Scolds Yuno for "wasting energy" by coming to the aid of Asta when the latter is caught in a plant trap. He then proceeds to waste time doing nothing but insult the Black Bulls and dismissing their efforts and accomplishments. It's even lampshaded by Yuno.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although he starts off an arrogant jerkass who's willing to insult the Black Bulls, as shown in his interactions with Noelle, a member of royalty, his actions after the Dungeon Exploration Arc show that he deeply cares about his co-workers.
  • Meaningful Name: His surname, "Lunettes", means "glasses" in French.
  • Sharing a Body: Turns out to be sharing the body with the soul of a long-dead elf.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His surname, in katakana, is "Ryunetto". This can be translated as either "Lunette" or "Lunettes", since in French, both have the same pronunciation. The official translation goes with the latter.
  • This Cannot Be!: This happens many times throughout the Dungeon Exploration Arc. Asta's Anti-Magic Sword, Mars's combat strength, Yuno's talent, Asta's Muscles, the list goes on and on...
  • This Is a Drill:
    • Steel Creation Magic: Fierce Spiral Lance summons a huge rotating lance that launches at a target, able to easily destroy a thick block of stones.
    • By the time of the Royal Knights Selection Exam he can use the spell Steel Magic: Blazing Spiral Lance, creating a huge drilling lance.
  • Training from Hell: His fellow magic knights later on talk about how he's become so obsessed with training that he doesn't do much else, and that he's even added harsh physical conditioning on top of his magical exercises. His thoughts reveal that he's doing this so he can become just like his role model Asta, and is proud of how strong following his friend's example has made him.
  • Tsundere: After he Took a Level in Kindness, Klaus routinely shows to be quite worried or impressed by others around him, before trying to claim that it's not like he was worried or anything. Klaus fits both sides of a tsundere accordingly, albeit with no real romantic subtext.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He goes through this after the Dungeon Exploration Arc, becoming a much more approachable, if proud individual who worries constantly about his co-workers' well-being.
  • Visual Development: The picture above is him at the start of the series. By the time of the Royal Knight tests, he's so buff that he's visibly thicker as his muscles can be seen from even under his heavy clothes. Klaus mentions that he subjected himself to extreme muscle training alongside his magic training so he could be more like Asta.

    Alecdra Sandler 

Alecdra Sandler

Voiced by: Genki Ohkawa (Japanese), Matt Shipman (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 12 (Manga), Episode 15 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Sand

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alecdora_square.png

A haughty and not-so-mighty Golden Dawn knight, Alecdra has sworn eternal allegiance to William Vangeance. Secretly harbors a murderous grudge against Yuno because of his magical prowess and quick rise through the ranks.

Alecdra wields Sand Magic, summoning golems of sand to battle in his stead, or conjuring clumps of sand to crush and let suffocate his targets.


  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Worse than Klaus. To make this point clear, he throws insults at everyone in the room.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Of the sand variety. He's so far seen using it primarily to restrain his targets.
  • Driven by Envy: Toward Yuno for being favored by William, even though he's a commoner. Shown to be pretty petty as well, when he puts a bunch of things in Yuno's boot in a volume illustration.
  • I Owe You My Life: His overzealous loyalty to William comes from an incident when he got stranded and injured during a battle and had already resigned to die when William showed up to rescue him.
  • Jerkass: He makes pre-character development Klaus look like the nicest guy ever.
  • Undying Loyalty: So loyal that he compares William to a god and becomes irritated when William pays more attention to Yuno than him.
  • Upper-Class Twit: Makes it clear that he expects nothing from the "dirty rat" (Yuno), despite the latter's talent.
  • Yandere: Non-romantic version. He can't stand the idea of a "street rat" like Yuno being favored by their captain/ more useful to William than him.

    Shiren Tium 

Shiren Tium

Voiced by: Masayuki Akasaka (Japanese), Randy E. Aguebor (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 2 (Manga), Episode 4 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Stone

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_shiren_tium.png

A nobleman and a 1st Class Intermediate Magic Knight. He is never fazed and always calm and collected.

Shiren is a practitioner of Stone Magic. His only known spell creates a real-time detailed map of his surroundings, which includes the positions of his allies and enemies. Often brought into various military operations as a result.


  • Sharing a Body: Turns out to be sharing the body with the soul of a long-dead elf.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name can be spelled as "Shiren Tium" (which matches up with the katakana of his name quite nicely), and the anime uses it but some fan translations use "Siren Tium".
  • The Stoic: Shows little to no emotion. He doesn't even get amazed by Nozel's easily going through the Eye of the Midnight Sun's hideout traps, unlike his other two teammates.
  • Terse Talker: The few times he does speak are incredibly short.
  • Utility Magic: Able to create a stone model of a location that includes changes happening at the place as well. Because of how valuable this is, he is enlisted as a Royal Knight, despite not having participated in the tournament. He invades the Eye of the Midnight Sun's hideout with Nozel.

    Hamon Caseus 

Hamon Caseus

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese), Kyle Philips (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 22 (Manga), Episode 20 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Glass

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_hamon_caseus.png

A nobleman and a 2nd Class Intermediate Magic Knight who is always jolly and enthusiastic.

His Glass Magic conjures up shards of glass to cut through his targets.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: A minor case. In the manga, Asta's criticized for eating in a way that the nobles find disgusting, but it isn't shown who says it. In the anime, Hamon's depicted as saying it, which kind of fits with how much he loves food.
  • Big Eater: Likes to eat food, and even shares his food with his teammates and Charmy, a fellow food lover.
  • Big Fun: He's a chubby man who's cheerful and jolly, sharing his food with others.
  • Glass Weapon: Has Glass Magic, letting him erupt glass blades from the ground to cut through enemies.
  • Gratuitous French: All his magic spell names are in French. They all contain "Verre", the French word for glass.
  • Nice Guy: Definitely one of the nicer guys in Golden Dawn.
  • Sharing a Body: Turns out to be sharing the body with the soul of a long-dead elf.
  • Utility Magic: Can use his glass magic to track down something like a crystal.

Silver Eagles

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/silvereagle_insignia.png
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: A trait they share with most nobles. They are very prideful of their magic, and can't handle the idea that peasants can be good with magic.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Noelle's older siblings may not have been the nicest of all people when they were young, but it soon becomes clear that they do love each other, as evident when Nozel teams up with Noelle to fight the elves after the latter decides to help them and later when Solid tells her to join her friends.
  • Badass Family: It's implied the order is mostly composed of members of the Silva family. All of them are tough as nails badasses.
  • Big Brother Bully: Noelle's older siblings took their time tormenting her during their childhood, pushing the guilt for their mother's death on her and ridiculing her lack of magic competence. Nozel forbade her from taking the exam and forced her into the Black Bulls so as to not shame the family publicly. Solid would often destroy her things when they were kids. Nozel's actions are justified in Chapter 176 - not only he did he not want to have Noelle disappear from his sight, but he kept her off the front lines all because he was concerned that Noelle wouldn't become powerful enough to defend herself.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: The reason why the Silvas became a dysfunctional family is because of Acier's death. When she died giving birth to Noelle, her older siblings mocked her for indirectly causing their mother's death as well as her power incontinence. Even then, Solid went so far as to destroy Noelle's toys. They would have been killed by the elves had Noelle not been compassionate enough to help them.
  • Blue Blood: All members of the Silva family are of royal lineage.
  • Break the Haughty: They don't seem to be taking their defeat to the Black Bulls in the ranking very well, especially Solid. They are also surprised when Nozel sincerely apologizes to Noelle in Chapter 176.
  • Bright Is Not Good: They all wear white uniforms and aren't initially the nicest of people, save for Noelle.
  • Dysfunctional Family: They are first shown as dysfunctional, through Noelle being constantly mocked by his older siblings for causing their mother's death and failing to control her powers, Solid destroying Noelle's toys when she was young and Nozel purposefully keeping Noelle out of the front lines. Fortunately, Noelle helping her siblings fight the elves and Nozel reconciling with her brings them all closer together.
  • Hate Sink: Aside from Noelle, the Silva family often tends to Kick the Dog at every opportunity. This is eventually subverted when Nozel apologizes to Noelle after she steps in to protect her siblings from the elves and later when Solid proudly acknowledges her for who she is.
  • Jerkass: When they are first introduced, they all take the time mock and laugh at Noelle for not controlling her magic very well.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After the Silva family mocked Noelle for her entire life, they are easily defeated by the Black Bulls, of which Noelle is a part of. Even better, Nozel teams up with Noelle to protect her siblings from the elves and acknowledges her strength, and Solid later admits how proud he is of his younger sister.
  • Making a Splash: All members of the Silva family have inherited some variation of magic connected to either water or liquids. Nozel manipulates liquid mercury, Nebra uses Mist, and Solid uses Water.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: Or at least in the good guys' side. Like most of the nobility, they look down on other people for being weaker or poorer than them.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Nozel is a captain and both Nebula and Solid have a lot of stars.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: They all resemble their late mother to some degree. In particular, Noelle closely resembles Acier, albeit with a different hairstyle.
  • So Proud of You:
    • In Chapter 176, Nozel admits that he underestimated Noelle's strength when they protected their brothers from harm.
    • By Chapter 190, Solid acknowledges that Noelle has become stronger and tells her to come home soon after, accepting her for who she is.
  • Thicker Than Water: Even though Solid and Nozel abused Noelle throughout their childhood, they eventually prove that they're not completely heartless. First, Nozel and Noelle join forces to help their siblings who are being attacked by the Elves. And later, Solid acknowledges that he has come to accept Noelle for who she is.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Except for Noelle, all of the Silva siblings have white hair and cruel personalities, at first.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Even when they're grown up, Nozel and Solid have no problems mocking Noelle. Well, until the Royal Knights arc, at least.

    Nozel Silva 

Nozel Silva

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese), Ricco Fajardo (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 2 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Mercury

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_nozel_silva.png

The oldest member of the Silva siblings and the captain of the Silver Eagles. He is a rude but competent man.

Uses Mercury Magic, which manipulates mercury in its liquid state.


  • Animal Battle Aura: It takes the form of an eagle.
  • Animal Motifs: The magic takes the form of an eagle and he's captain of the Silver Eagles. He's an aloof and proud nobleman.
  • Big Brother Instinct: In Chapter 176, as Noelle fights the elf, Nozel's first instinct is to raise his mercury barrier to protect the rest of his siblings and join forces with the youngest of the Silva siblings for good.
  • Death from Above: He can raindrops of mercury as projectiles.
  • Foil: To Fuegoleon. Whereas Fuegoleon is a flame magic user, connected to warm colors and is a Cool Big Bro to the members of his team, Nozel uses metallic liquid as a form of magic, is connected to cold colors, especially silver, and is an Aloof Big Brother to his brothers at best and at worst, he's abusive to Noelle.
  • The Force Is Strong with This One: As a royal and captain of a Magic Knights Squad, he has immense magical power, generating an intense pressure that intimidates Asta when he faces off with Fuegoleon.
  • Freudian Excuse: He only acted indifferently towards Noelle as not only did he not want the latter to disappear from his sight again but he purposefully kept her off the front lines, because he was concerned that she wouldn't get any stronger.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • When Asta is kidnapped, he makes a sound point that with the town being attacked, the Magic Knights don't have the resources to drop everything to save another person and that they now need to prepare for another attack instead.
    • While Noelle protects the rest of the Silva siblings in Chapter 176, Nozel admitted that he didn't want her to disappear from his sight again, all because he was concerned that she wouldn't become powerful enough to defend herself.
  • Jerkass Realization: He realizes what a jerk he has been to Noelle in Chapter 176 after she shows up to help her siblings from the elf.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his abusive behavior towards Noelle, it becomes clear he deeply loves his sister, as shown when Noelle teams up with him to fight the Elves and protect their siblings.
  • Noble Demon: When Nebula and Solid begin prodding and scorning Mimosa's family and Golden Dawn after Asta is kidnapped and Leon is maimed, he silences them by pointing out that their misfortune was partially the Silver-Winged Great Eagle's fault for not being prepared for such an occasion. Later, he even reconciles with Noelle and helps their family fight the elves.
  • This Cannot Be!: The look on his face when the Black Bulls beat them in the rankings just screams this.
  • Underestimating Badassery: In Chapter 176, he tells Noelle that he completely underestimated how strong she has become as part of their reconciliation.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: In Chapter 176, he admits to Noelle that he purposefully stopped Noelle from joining the Silver Eagles and forced her to join the Black Bulls because she heavily resembled Acier and he didn't want Noelle to disappear from his sight again.
  • You Remind Me of X: In Chapter 177, when Noelle uses a spell to charge at the elf, it quickly reminds Nozel of their late mother.

    Nebra Silva 

Nebra Silva

Voiced by: Yurika Aizawa (Japanese), Mallorie Rodak (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 2 (Manga), Episode 4 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Mist

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_nebra_silva.png

A smug and overconfident woman, and is quick to laugh at people. Nebra is the first daughter of the Silva family.

Uses Mist magic, capable of manipulating mist to create clones and contain her enemies.


  • Early-Bird Cameo: We first see her accompanying her brother Nozel to the selection exams, watching in the background.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: She wears a purple cape and is a refined, yet bitchy, noblewoman.
  • Making a Splash: Same as her relatives Nozel, Solid, and Noelle. She's far more technical and precise than Solid or Noelle, forming snake-like coils out of mist to attack.
  • Self-Duplication: She can create clones out of mist.
  • Smug Super: She always wears a cruel and overconfident smile, especially when she's around her little sister or peasants. She does have the skill to back it, as one of the highest ranking members of the Silver Eagles.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Elegant and refined, but the Wizard King notes that she "plays" with her enemies too much. Not to mention her treatment of Noelle.

    Solid Silva 

Solid Silva

Voiced by: Shouma Yamamoto (Japanese), Christopher Wehkamp (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 22 (Manga), Episode 20 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Water

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_solid_silva.png

A sadistic and arrogant man who took pleasure in making Noelle's life hell when they were kids.

Uses Water Magic, manipulating water to form weapons and other things.


  • Alliterative Name: Solid Silva.
  • Big Brother Bully: He deserves a special mention due to his sadism. In a flashback, he's seen being a complete Jerkass to Noelle, which includes him breaking her toys just because. By the time of the Royal Knights Arc, however, it leads to his downfall when he insists on fighting Noelle who has become stronger than him.
  • Big Brother Instinct: In Chapter 190, he stays behind to fight the elves, allowing Noelle to escape with the other Black Bulls.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Alecdra warns him to not go off on his own immediately after being put in the same team. Noelle exploits this along with his Big Brother Bully tendencies, by asking Yuno to send her to destroy Solid's team crystal, knowing he'll go after her without thinking.
  • It's All About Me: The Wizard King tries to get him to work with a team rather than solo, but his face is what sells it. He drops it after Noelle defeats him.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Like Nozel, he deeply loves Noelle as shown when he vows to surpass Noelle and tells her to come home soon after in an act of reconciliation.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After he spent several years mocking Noelle for her lack of magic competence, even when she's become stronger than him, Solid gets a taste of his own medicine in the Royal Knights arc when Noelle curb-stomps him during their match and destroys the crystal he was guarding.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Alecdra and the Wizard King note that Solid often has trouble remembering to work as a team rather than rushing into things by himself.
  • Making a Splash: He prefers focused water projectiles instead of Noelle's torrents and Nebra's coils.
  • Sore Loser: He is distraught when the Black Bulls beat them in the rankings.
  • This Cannot Be!: He says it word-for-word to having his magic reflected back at him, forcing him to kneel from the impact. He has a similar reaction when Noelle overpowers him and destroys the crystal he was guarding.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Even after Noelle learned to control her magic, he makes the mistake of underestimating how more powerful she became and is utterly curb-stomped in their match.

Acier Silva

Voiced by: Luci Christian (English)

Debut: Chapter 111 (Manga), Episode 71 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Steel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/acier_steel.png

Noelle's deceased mother and former captain of the Silver Eagles.


  • Always Someone Better: She was this to Mereoleona despite Mereo's magic being strong against Acier's. Mereo never managed a single win against her, and years after her death fondly reminisces on her power to Noelle.
  • Death by Childbirth: She died giving birth to her second daughter, Noelle. This loss, when coupled with Noelle's lack of magical skill in comparison to her siblings, understandably caused the Silva siblings to mock her for indirectly causing Acier's death.
  • Death by Origin Story: Her death impacted the Silva family so much that they prevented Noelle from joining the Silver Eagles and made her join the Black Bulls.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Implied by her title "Steel War Princess" and her name meaning steel in French. Also, her picture looks like she is manipulating metal to form her armor and weapons and the fact that her oldest son's magic is Mercury, a.k.a. liquid metal.
  • Lady of War: Mereoleona described her as "taking to the battlefield as if she was dancing across it".
  • Like Parent, Like Child: Noelle looks identical to her, both in regards to her likeness and compassion towards others. Her other children, Nebra, Nozel and Solid, resemble her to various degrees. This is one of the reasons why Nozel didn't want to lose sight of her ever again.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is French for steel.
  • Missing Mom: Acier becomes one to the Silva siblings shortly after Noelle's childbirth resulted in her death.
  • Posthumous Character: She died after Noelle was born, but her legacy still affects the relationship between her children and is remembered fondly by those who knew her.
  • Red Baron: The Steel War Princess.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She was only shown in flashbacks as she died shortly after Noelle's birth. Her kindness impacted the entire story — Noelle wouldn't have teamed up with the Black Bulls and be accepted for who she is, and she certainly would be compassionate enough to help her siblings whenever they're in serious trouble.
  • Warrior Princess: Her title was "The Steel War Princess", and Mereoleona looked up to her as the only fighter who she could never defeat.

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crimsonlionking_insignia.png
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Subverted. Unlike most nobles, the Vermillions are friendly and believe that, through training, anyone can become a great Magic Knight.
  • Badass Family: Much like the Silver Eagles, the highest-ranked officers are composed by a single family: the Vermillion family.
  • Hot-Blooded: While Fuegoleon isn't as much, the rest of the members are definitely explosive, strong-headed and loud.
  • Playing with Fire: Most members of the group appear to be using some variation of Flame Magic.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Following Fuegoleon's coma, the Crimson Lion Kings are the team most invested in defeating the Eye of the Midnight Sun.

    Fuegoleon Vermillion 

Fuegoleon Vermillion

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (Japanese), J. Michael Tatum, Mikaela Krantz (young) (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Flame

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_fuegoleon_vermillion.png

"Being weak is nothing to be ashamed of. Staying weak is!"

A strong man with a brotherly and kind personality. He is the widely-respected captain of the Crimson Lions, recognized as a true Magic Knight.

Uses Flame Magic, manipulating fire to create large forms that can attack the enemy.


  • Animal Motifs: A lion with his flowing hair and his title as Captain of the Crimson Lion Kings.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses an arm after being caught in a trap during the raid on Castle Town.
  • Artificial Limbs: Crafts a replacement out of flame when he finally wakes from his coma.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Picks apart the magic and strategy of the sorcerer Asta was fighting, before decimating his foe in a single blast.
  • Battle Aura: Takes the form of a lion when he gets serious.
  • The Bus Came Back: After being put in a coma and staying so for more than 100 chapters, he wakes up at last to fight Randall with Salamander's help.
  • Cool Big Bro: Not only to his actual brother but also to Asta and Noelle, as soon as he meets them.
  • Facial Markings: A small one on his forehead and red ones around his eyes similar to his siblings.
  • Foil: He is the Cool Big Bro flame magic user to Nozel's Big Brother Bully metallic liquid magic user. They especially part themselves in regards to how they treat Noelle. While Nozel bullied, belittled and gave her the cold shoulder her entire life, Fuegoleon is immediately friendly towards her, and when she shows doubts about her power, he assures her that she can become a better mage as long as she keeps training.
  • Hot-Blooded: Not as bad as Leopold, but he has his moments.
  • Meaningful Name: Named Leon, when he's the head of the Crimson Lion unit. The fact that his last name is Vermillion lends further credence to this. His full first name, Fuegoleon, also references fire ("Fuego" is "fire" in Spanish).
  • Not So Stoic: He gets particularly fired up and hammy when he's trying to set an example for the other knights.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He stops Nozel from attacking Asta and calls him out on his douchebag attitude to the other guests in the Valor Ceremony.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He's not on one, but has just about inspired one from every Magic Knight in the manga. As the Wizard King put it: Licht "...might have just awakened a sleeping lion and robbed a bear of her cubs at the same time." Nozel was furious about Fuegoleon's condition, as was his older sister Mereoleona, Yami made sure to take the Big Bad seriously when he later fought him, and the rest of the Magic Knights vowed to get stronger so that it might never happen again.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: He is a lot calmer and mature than his siblings Leopold and Mereoleona.
  • The Stoic: Never loses his composure, even when he looks ready to fight Nozel.
  • Theme Naming: Named after a large cat-like his subordinate and relative Leopold.

Mereoleona Vermillion

Voiced by: Junko Minagawa (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)

Debut: Chapter 105 (Manga), Episode 70 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Flame

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bclover_mereoleona_vermillion.png

"Nothing is more powerful than a woman who has resolved herself."

An inhumanly strong woman, and the oldest child of the Vermillion family. Unusually skilled and capable, she leads the Royal Knights and the Crimson Lion Kings in her brother's absence. A gifted hand-to-hand fighter, Mereoleona claims she has never been defeated on the battlefield.

Uses a particularly brutal brand of Flame Magic capable of burning through other spells. Each of her own spells revolves around summoning fists of fire to pummel her opponents from every direction.


  • The Ace: Mereo is crazy powerful, renowned as completely undefeated, and is made the Captain of the elite Royal Knights unit, who also completely crushes one of the strongest members of the Third Eye.
  • Action Girl: The strongest Magic Knight in the Clover Kingdom, a powerful hand-to-hand combatant, and user of a brutal form of Flame Magic to literally pummel enemies.
  • Animal Motifs: Lions, of course. A lioness, more specifically, as "female lions do the hunting!"
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Mereoleona states that all their enemies must be destroyed at any cost because they will never stop until they destroy them first. When Asta asks why she's unable to respond.
  • Berserk Button: Don't slack off, don't call her "Sisleon", and don't disgrace the Crimson Lion Kings. It's likely to set her off something fierce.
  • Blood Knight: Takes great joy in fighting.
  • Boobs of Steel: One of the most powerful female characters and also very stacked.
  • Brutal Honesty: After going at length on how awesome Noelle's mother was, she then tells Noelle that she isn't like her at all.
  • Cool Big Sis: With her team, she encourages Noelle to do her best, and is the first person to talk to her about her mom. Later, it's revealed she's an awesome older sister to Fuegoleon, who encourages him to get stronger and has nothing but true faith in his abilities.
  • Determinator: Takes on a small battalion of elf mages to buy Asta and Zora time to escape, and even after getting blasted nearly to death and expending her entire reserve of magic she stays on her feet, fully intending to fight until her last breath with her bare hands.
  • The Dreaded: Even captains such as Charlotte and Yami find her scary. Given her temper, it's obvious why.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Mereoleona does not believe in taking it easy when she's training people, putting them through intense practice.
  • Dynamic Entry:
  • Facial Markings: She has the same reddish circles around her eyes as her brothers.
  • Fiery Redhead: Even more than Leopold, if such a thing was possible.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Before she even uses her Grimoire, she is capable of punching through spells and attacks, and her fists are engulfed in flames.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: It does not take much to make her erupt.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Seems to have saved Asta and Zora from the elves and stayed back to buy them time. Though she claims it's because they will get in way. They come back to rescue her anyway.
  • Hot-Blooded: She's even more hotblooded than Asta at times.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She acts very harsh, but she truly wants to help the Crimson Lion Kings to rise again after Fuegoleon's fall. As Yami notes during the Hot Springs Training Camp Arc, she dragged him and Charlotte to the hot springs so her members are able to model after them. She also gives Noelle advice and encouragement without being prompted to.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: She's very skilled at hand-to-hand combat, incorporating her flame magic into her physical blows. Zora even notes that she's more of a fighter than a mage.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Even in this cast, Mereoleona is noted to be psychotically fast, and she loves to throw out brutal hits.
  • Made of Iron: She can take incredible amounts of damage without flinching or showing much injury whatsoever.
  • More Deadly Than the Male: She's both stronger and much more aggressive than her male siblings, which is expressed in her brutal, melee fighting style compared to their ranged ones. As she states herself, she's a lioness and "female lions do the hunting!"
  • No Indoor Voice: Almost everything she says is through shouting.
  • No-Sell:
    • She is capable of punching and burning through spells. Her battle against Rhya included him throwing every spell he knows at her, but she burns through them and never receives any damage.
    • This is Played for Laughs when she no sells Zora's stinkbug prank.
  • Playing with Fire: She can even climb up a volcano without breaking a sweat. She can also burns other people's spells.
  • Red Baron: The Uncrowded Undefeated Lioness.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: She has absolutely zero issue stripping down for a mixed hot spring until Sol uses her magic to make a wall to prevent the men from seeing them. She apparently expected the hot springs to be co-ed.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Fuegoleon. He's calm, reserved and dutiful. She's wild, free-spirited and passionate.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: She gives Asta some vague advice and leaves him to figure out how to climb up the volcano on his own. It actually works and he ends up figuring how to better control his demon mode.
  • Super Strength: She has inhumane strength and speed, as noted by Rhya.
  • World's Strongest Woman: Mereoleona is stated to be the most powerful person in the Clover Kingdom, at least with the death of Julius. Her potential was such that she could easily have become Wizard King if she wished to. The only reason that her brother's the captain of the Crimson Lions and not her is that she didn't feel like doing it.

"The battlefield is my only lover."

A woman who dislikes men, leading the Blue Rose Knights to become a mostly female faction. Always looking calm and collected, Charlotte harbors a secret crush on Yami, causing her to completely lose her focus when she's around him.

Uses Briar Magic, which transforms her sword into a rose bush she can manipulate at will.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Sol refers to Charlotte as "Char", much to the latter's chagrin.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Yami's Archie and Vanessa's Betty due to both women being in love with Yami.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Vanessa challenges her to a drinking contest. Charlotte lasts about three drinks before passing out.
  • Does Not Like Men: It seems to be a thing in her order as it's stated by Sol that the few men who are among the Blue Rose Knights are nothing more than chore boys. The only exception is Yami.
  • Fairytale Motifs: To Sleeping Beauty. Her magic transforms her sword into roses and thorns and she was cursed by a witch to lose control of her magic on her eighteen birthday, with the curse only broken by falling in love.
  • Green Thumb: She can create thorns from her sword.
  • Identical Stranger: She and the elf lady whom Rhya tried to go have a drink with have almost exactly the same face. Funnily enough, Rhya, upon meeting Charlotte for the first time, declares that he will beat her and take her to a bar. She's later possessed by said elf.
  • Lady of War: Always calm and graceful on the battlefield, using Briar Magic to transform her sword into a rose bush.
  • Magic Knight: She fights using Briar Magic to transform her sword into a bush of thorns.
  • Rescue Romance: An interesting case in that the romance is what rescues her. She was cursed by a witch to suffer Power Incontinence on her eighteenth birthday that would doom everyone around her, with her falling in love being the Curse Escape Clause. She had resolved to defeat the curse with her own power but ultimately succumbed to it. Much to her frustration, Yami of all people was the one who broke the curse.
  • The Rival: As they compete for Yami's affection, she and Vanessa come to see each other as this.
  • Something About a Rose: Not only is her squad's sigil a rose, but her magic turns her sword into a rose bush of thorns.
  • Tsundere: Type B around Yami.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: According to the Volume 12 Question Brigade, Charlotte is the most beautiful woman among the characters.

An upbeat woman who has a strong distaste for men. Sol's entirely devoted to her captain, almost obsessively so, and is really friendly with other women.

She uses Earth Magic, often creating golems out of dirt and riding them into battle.


  • Ambiguously Brown: The only dark-skinned character in the setting, other than an unnamed Shining General of the Diamond Kingdom.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Her very strong feelings for Charlotte can easily be seen as romantic. She even has a nosebleed when seeing Charlotte naked. She is also very enthusiastic about washing Noelle's back in the hot springs.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her power, said to have special properties that grant her great mobility.
  • Expy: She somewhat resembles pre-Eclipse Casca. She even claims to especially like women who have guts.

  • Straw Feminist: She has absolutely zero respect for men and seems to enjoy treating them like servants. She outright states she would have done the same with Yuno had he joined the Blue Rose Knights.

Magic Attribute: Bronze

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_sekke_bronzazza.png

An opportunistic jerkass who attempts to join the Magic Knights by making Asta look bad. After being put in his place, he outgrows a touch of the jerk and becomes a washed-up loser and hopeless womanizing gambler.

Uses Bronze Magic, using Bronze to manipulate and create objects. Can notably grant them a poisonous side-effect.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Asta calls him "Bah-hah" after his laugh.
  • Agony of the Feet: A bandit stabbed him through his boot and sock with a poisoned knife after being run over. It wasn't as bad as it appeared to be and Sekke overreacted.
  • Barrier Warrior: His signature magic his a spherical shield adorned with spiked protrusions resembling cannons. So far, he's never gotten the chance to show what it does besides block attacks.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Initially appearing to nice and friendly, he reveals to Asta that he was simply using the latter as a mean to make himself look good. This is subverted when he manages to be somewhat likable after Asta beats him and yells at him for trying to pass on one of his dreams when he thought he was going to die from a poison that turned out to be a simple numbing agent.
  • Break the Haughty: He tries to act like he's a big shot and is definitely rude. However, he's such a Butt-Monkey that you can't help but feel sorry for him.
  • Butt-Monkey: Nothing goes well for him, ever. If he appears, something bad will happen to him, without fail. It seemed like he was getting better in the tournament, being able to meaningfully contribute to his team's victories, but then Finral teleported him to the bathroom stall where Yami was taking a shit and, well...
  • Casanova Wannabe: He has tried to woo Noelle and Vanessa a couple of times. It never works.
  • Cool Bike: He can create one with his spell Shooting Star.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Asta defeats him in about three seconds.
  • Death Equals Redemption: Parodied. When he's apparently on the verge of dying from poison, he entrusts his dreams to Asta, finally making peace with the fact that Asta defeated him... except he wasn't anywhere close to dying. He soon goes back to being the same asshole in no time.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: He uses Bronze magic, for both attack and defense.
  • Humble Pie: Sekke comes to realize he's a big-talking jackass quite easily. That doesn't stop him from trying to save face.
  • Hypocrite: Doesn't want people to view him like a bug, but views commoners and the forsaken as such, if not worse. At least until karma comes a knocking.
  • Jaded Washout: The result of being bested by Asta was that he went from having good prospects for the Magic Knights and ended up a loser in his own eyes.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Wanted to become a Magic Knight, but was adamant about not being in the Green Praying Mantis guild because he hated the idea of being viewed as a bug. Also, getting poisoned by a bandit after trying to poison Asta was arguably deserved.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Brags about his role in the royal capital's invasion, even though he wasn't even seen at the scene, and later proves to be a coward during the Magic Knights' attack on Vetto.
  • Perma-Stubble: When he becomes a member of the guild he wants to be in the least of all, he goes from a clean-faced smooth operator to wallowing and disheveled, and his face shows it.
  • The Resenter: He resents Asta for defeating him effortlessly, and Yuno for stopping him getting revenge on Asta.
  • Signature Laugh: "Bahahah..." Turned into an Annoying Laugh in the anime that becomes the subject of Petit Clover segments.
  • Sore Loser: He tries to cripple Asta with a poisonous lizard spell after Asta utterly curb-stomps him in the exams. Later on, when Asta and Yuno are being publicly celebrated as the best members of the two highest-scoring Magic Knight squads, Sekke calls out that they're both just commoners with awful magic. Asta and Yuno both soon make him shut up by displaying their powers in front of the crowd.
  • Tempting Fate: When he said he didn't want to be in the Green Praying Mantis guild and acted like a dick to Asta, it was now the only possibility.
  • Terrible Trio: Forms one with two other guys, who accompany him on his date and go with him to the beach to get some girls. They, like Sekke, are complete losers.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: While he isn't nearly as crappy a person after Asta gives him a taste of Humble Pie, he's still annoying.

  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She's weird and spends most of her time asleep, but she can back that Captain title up.

    Kirsch Vermillion 

Kirsch Vermillion

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (Japanese), Kyle Igneczi (English)

Debut: Chapter 113 (Manga)

Magic Attribute: Cherry Blossom

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bclover_kirsch_vermillion.png

The vice-captain of the Coral Peacocks. The brother of Mimosa Vermillion, he's a shallow man obsessed with beauty. As such, he has a huge hatred of commoners, or more accurately, of anybody and anything that is not up to par with his standards. His skills, though, are undisputed, and his magical insight is his best asset.

He uses Cherry Blossom Magic, manipulating huge amounts of cherry blossom petals to create clones, obfuscate enemies and conjure up whole blizzards.


  • Agent Peacock: His strength in battle is directly proportional to his flamboyance.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Inverted. He is Mimosa's annoying older brother.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He analyzes Magna and Sol's battle techniques and comes up with ways to improve them in a couple of minutes.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: His quirky behavior doesn't change the fact that he is a vice-captain.
  • Bishounen: And boy, is he aware of it.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: For all his posing and narcissism and Large Ham tendencies, he is a genuinely badass Magic Knight and competent vice-captain.
  • Character Development: He appears to have developed past his Fantastic Racism towards commoners after the Royal Knights tournament, both by being defeated by some, having to work with some and having Mimosa spell out to him that she thinks he is a jerk.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: More or less. At the end of their match, he admits to Mimosa that the fight was beautiful.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: As a means to showcase his Character Development, Kirsch cuts his hair before officially joining the Royal Knights.
  • Family Theme Naming: Kirsch is the name of a type of fruit brandy, similar to how Mimosa is the name of a cocktail.
  • Fatal Flaw: His immense Pride and his prejudice of commoners. Both combine when he refuses to admit that magicless commoner Asta could be a threat and ditches his own teammates after learning their equally humble background. He ends diving straight into Asta's team trap. Even when he is bailed out of there he is so frantic he can't fight properly.
  • Humiliation Conga: It starts with Asta dispelling his petal fog he has covered the entire battlefield with. Then he learns his teammates were commoners the entire time, causing him to ditch them to face Asta's team on his own. They manage to catch him off guard, with a non-magical trap no less and gets Asta's anti-magic sword to the face for good measure. He has to be rescued from there by Sol, goes back to the fight, is hit with the sword in the face again and his team's crystal is destroyed.
  • Lack of Empathy: Years ago, he saw a Street Urchin stealing food and concluded that poor people were just ugly on the inside.
  • Large Ham: His default mode is giving passionate speeches about beauty while posing dramatically the entire time.
  • Petal Power: He has Cherry Blossom magic.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: A member of the Vermillion family and a vice-captain.

Purple Orcas

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/purpleorcas_insignia.png
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: From everything that's been seen of the Magic Knight squads, they're the worst. Their former captain collaborated with the Eye of the Midnight Sun, their vice-captain offered to kill an old woman for asking his help in finding her granddaughter, the squad as a whole has a history of treating commoners in their ranks like garbage, and just overall seem to have the least scruples about who they allow to join them. No wonder they came in second-last in the latest Star Festival, barely beating out the squad led by the youngest Magic Knight captain, who seems to treat being a Magic Knight as a side gig to his painting.
  • Hufflepuff House: They have the absolute least amount of development and screentime of any of the squads.

  • Invisibility: His magic. Proved advantageous for him to find information and gain the upper hand in business deals.
  • Reused Character Design: Has the same design as a character from Yūki Tabata's previous manga, Hungry Joker.

Magic Attribute: Ice

The vice-captain of the Purple Orcas. A ruthless man of noble origins.

Uses Ice Magic.

  • Sharing a Body: He ends up being possessed by an elf after Patry revives his brethren.

    Orsi Ofai 

Father Orsi Ofai

Voiced by: Yoji Ueda (OVA), Kazuki Nakao (Anime) (Japanese), Brian Mathis (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 1 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Flame

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_orsi_ofai.png

The priest in charge of the orphanage.


  • Adaptational Expansion: In the anime, he and the other residents of Hage are shown more after the events of Chapter 1. He's shown to be greatly surprised that Asta's made it into a Magic Knights squad.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Though he's still rather nice, he's shown to have little faith in Asta more often in the anime:
    • In Episode 7, he automatically assumes Asta failed the Magic Knight exam and is already suggesting a party to cheer him up when he gets back. He is completely shocked that Asta managed to get in.
    • In Episode 30, he's proud that Yuno was able to get promoted while assuming that Asta is most likely being a burden to others. He's then shocked again when he finds out that Asta has been promoted as well.
  • All There in the Manual: His full name's shown only in his character profile in one of the volumes.
  • Doorstep Baby: In the anime, he's the one who finds Asta and Yuno on the church's doorstep and takes them in. And he's also the first one to fall victim to how rough Asta is.
  • Good Shepherd: He is a priest who raised Asta and Yuno when they were left on his doorstep.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A very slight case of him being a jerk. He has little faith in Asta's succeeding, but genuinely cares about him, and is shocked when he doesn't receive a grimoire. While he is shocked that Asta passed the Magic Knight exam, he's shown being proud regardless.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: Asta apparently views him this way. He thinks about bringing Sister Lily and the kids to the city but doesn't include him. When Asta sends a letter in Episode 30, he includes Sister Lily, the kids, and the mayor, but not him. This is most likely due to Orsi's blatant Parental Favoritism towards Yuno.
  • Parental Favoritism: He doesn't bother hiding the fact that he favors Yuno over Asta.
  • Playing with Fire: Has flame magic in the anime.

    Lily Aquaria 

Sister Lily Aquaria

Voiced by: Ai Kayano (OVA), Miyu Kubota (Anime) (Japanese), Dawn M. Bennett (English)

The nun whom Asta is enamored with, and a pupil of Sister Theresa Rapual.

She's a non-violent practitioner of Water Magic.


  • Adaptational Expansion: Shown more often in the anime and is even given a role in a filler arc.
  • Apologetic Attacker: She immediately does this after she uses her Water Magic on Asta.
  • Beauty Mark: Has one below to the side of her left eye.
  • Damsel in Distress: In the anime, Salim de Hapshass has her kidnapped as part of his scheme to take Yuno's grimoire. It ultimately fails, and Lily even attacks Salim after he tries to attack Yuno and the others.
  • Hero's Muse: Asta sometimes thinks about her and wants to marry her after he should become the Wizard King. Asta mentions her vaguely when talking to Rebecca, which once causes Noelle, who eavesdrops on him, to mistakenly think that she (Noelle) is the muse.
  • Making a Splash: She has Water Magic.
  • Megaton Punch: Often rebuffs Asta with one made of Water Magic.
  • Orphanage of Love: Runs one with the priest.

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 1 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Flame

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nash.png

One of the orphans.


  • Adaptational Expansion: In the anime, it's explicitly shown that he hasn't any hope about Asta because he, Asta, and the others are poor and thus can't have dreams, unlike the wealthy.
  • All There in the Manual: His name wasn't revealed in any of the chapters, but the character information provided in the volumes listed his name and the other orphans'. Only in Chapter 158 was his name revealed in a chapter at last.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As shown when all he has to say in response to Asta's not getting a grimoire is "Are you kidding me?" with a blank stare.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's incredibly snide and bratty toward Asta. However, when Asta manages to become a magic knight, he is shown to be happy that Asta was successful.
  • Playing with Fire: Shown to be able to cast flame magic.

The head of the Grimoire Tower and the one in charge of the ceremony in which 15-year-olds are given their own grimoires.


  • All There in the Manual: His true name's revealed in the official guidebook.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Generally keeps his eyes closed, but opens them once when assuring people that, yes, someone among them wants to become the next Wizard King.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite telling Sister Lily and the priest that he doesn't know whether Asta's book is a grimoire, he seems to be one of the few characters who see that Asta's grimoire is no ordinary one.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Looks like the traditional old wizard.
  • Wizard Beard: His age and vocation as the keeper of grimoire is reflected in his long and white beard.

Wizard Kings

First Wizard King

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 1 (Anime)

The man who saved mankind from a demon.


    Julius Novachrono 

Julius Novachrono

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Robert McCollum (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Time

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_julius_novachrono.png

The eccentric but beloved current Wizard King. An aficionado for finding and studying new types of magic. A magic geek, if you will.

Uses Time Magic, granting him the power to manipulate time.


  • The Archmage: As his title would imply, he's considered the strongest mage of the Clover Kingdom, and is the military commander of all mages in the kingdom.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Says to Asta and Yuno that the only requirement to become Wizard King is results, right before opening a door to reveal a dozen other talented young sorcerers as part of the Medal Presentation. He finally proves why onscreen when he wipes out an entire squad of mages who completely overpowered the heroes and Captain Vermillion in seconds without getting a scratch.
  • Benevolent Mage Ruler: He has been shown to be a kind, approachable man who protects his kingdom and takes interest in the skills of the youth of said kingdom.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A magic Otaku that often neglects his duties to do whatever the hell he wants and study other types of magic.
  • Dare to Be Badass: To Asta and Yuno right after his statement about becoming the next Wizard King:
    Wizard King: [motioning to the other young sorcerers in the hall] Do you think... you'll be able to produce more results than these guys?
  • Deus Exit Machina: Leaves right before a bunch of powerful sorcerers come to terrorize the kingdom.
  • Dissonant Serenity: He maintains his affable, friendly tone as he threatens to slaughter the Eye of the Midnight Sun members who attacked the Clover Kingdom.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": People largely refer to him by his title.
  • Flash Step: He appears to do this thanks to his Time Magic, allowing him to avoid attacks by slowing time. It looks as if he's instantaneously teleporting when in reality he only looks that fast because time is slowed down for everyone else but himself.
  • The Gambler: In his old lady disguise, he's seen beating Sekke in a game of cards.
  • Go Out with a Smile: He smiles during his last moments, happy that he's seen so many different magics and known so many people.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He's certainly nice to his allies and is a Reasonable Authority Figure, but he won't hesitate to kill his enemies by reducing them to dust.
  • Gratuitous Greek: His Mana Zone spell, Chrono Stasis Foresight, is in Greek.
  • Keet: Surprisingly enough, he's this around rare magic due to his "magic maniac" tendencies as explained by Klaus. He's ecstatic when he sees the rare magic in Yuno's tome, but is saddened when Yuno tells him that he's been unable to use it since. He also gushes over Asta's Demon-Dweller Sword until he realizes that the sword is draining his mana.
  • Nice Guy: From what we have seen of him, he's shown to be a kind and laid back ruler devoted to achieving equality for the people of the Clover Kingdom.
  • Peaceful in Death: As he dies, he entrusts everything to Yami and thinks about how great it is to have met so many different people and to have seen so many different kinds of magic.
  • Perpetual Smiler: The man is almost always shown smiling. Even while he's slaughtering the enemy's magic squad. He does stop smiling at one particular occasion when Langris uses magic reminiscent to that of Vetto and Fana.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: A chillingly casual one:
    Wizard King: You can't possibly have gone to kill, without being prepared to be killed, right?
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Created the current ranking so that everyone has a chance to be recognized if they put in the work. This is because of Zara, Zora Ideale's father, being the ideal epitome of a Magic Knight, despite being a commoner and not getting recognized, around Julius when they were both just Knights.
  • Shapeshifting: He disguised himself as an unassuming old lady in order to see the skills of Asta.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Because of transliteration issues. Mage King, Sorcerer Emperor, and Wizard King are all valid translations, though the official translation (for the manga, anime, video game, and all licensed merchandise) goes with the latter.
  • Stealth Insult: Throws many of these in when awarding the sorcerers at the Valor Ceremony in an attempt to correct their social deficiencies. They mostly take them as compliments.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: His surname, Chrono, alludes to the fact that he's a Time Master.
  • Time Master: It's currently unknown what exactly his magic entails, but he's shown to be capable of putting his foes in a stasis bubble where the victims experience a split second for an excruciatingly long period of time, unable to move or speak all the while. He's also able to inflict Rapid Aging on an enemy, which the enemy leader finds out firsthand.
  • World's Strongest Man: As the current Wizard King, he's the strongest mage in the Clover Kingdom.

    Augustus Kira Clover XIII 

Augustus Kira Clover XIII

Voiced by: Jun Miyamoto (Japanese), Sonny Strait (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 29 (Manga), Episode 23 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Light

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/augustus_anime.png

The king of the Clover Kingdom.


  • 0% Approval Rating: He is not hated per se, but his subjects have thought that they would prefer Julius as their king. His lack of talent is not helped by his personality.
  • Always Someone Better: Julius is this to him. Augustus has the title; Julius has the intelligence, charisma, leadership skills and public approval expected from a king.
  • “Awesome McCool” Name: His first name's an obvious reference to the Roman emperor, although the Clover king's far less impressive.
  • Cool Crown: He always wears it.
  • Emerging from the Shadows: Appeared hidden behind a curtain in Chapter 29, and finally revealed on Chapter 107 to be not as impressive as he may have seemed to be.
  • Forgettable Character: Is a little shocked when Julius seems to have forgotten about him, and even says during one of Julius's announcements that he wants to stand out, too.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: He acts entitled to his subjects' respect and brags of how awesome he is, but it's painfully obvious that he is aware of Julius' popularity.
  • Light 'em Up: Possesses this kind of magic, much like the first Wizard King.
  • Manchild: He throws tantrums when things don't go his way and internally gloats that the tournament "was Julius's idea but now it's mine", like a child who got away with stealing candy.
  • Public Execution: Demands that Asta and Yuno be executed immediately in front of a huge crowd after they criticize him for not being as great as he thinks. Fortunately, Julius convinces him to take it back.
  • The Resenter: Hasn't gotten over Asta and Yuno's remarks about him, hoping that they'll lose soon.
  • Royal Harem: Shown to be sitting next to two women on his first appearance.
  • Staff of Authority: He carries a scepter when he's in front of the public.

    Salim de Hapshass 

Salim de Hapshass

Voiced by: Yoshiyuki Shimozuma (Japanese), Todd Haberkorn (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 3 (Manga), Episode 5 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Lightning

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/salim.png

A noble of the Hapshass family whom Yuno beats with ease in the Magic Knights Entrance Exam.


  • Adaptation Expansion: His magic is never shown in the manga, but the anime has him use lightning magic.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: He is just an arrogant noble in the manga, but in the anime, he also reveals himself to be pretty vengeful and remorseless, as he tries to attack Yuno even after being given a chance to be free as long as he never returns to Hage.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In Episodes 12 and 13, he schemes to take Yuno's grimoire, angry that he made him unable to join the Magic Knights. The filler episodes also make him the son of a congressman who turns out to be corrupt, and Salim's testimony apparently exposes his father's wrongdoings. Salim, even if he isn't involved with his father's corruption, probably is punished in some way for his scheme to take Yuno's grimoire.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Defeated very quickly by Yuno.
  • Demoted to Extra: He had a much bigger role in the one-shot.
  • Jerkass: A very mild one in the manga, but in the anime, he shows off a lot more arrogance.
  • Shock and Awe: Uses this kind of magic in the anime.
  • Starter Villain: He's the main antagonist in the one-shot, essentially playing the same role as Revchi does in the first chapter.
  • Upper-Class Twit: Pretty much a milder version of the noble characters who are far more arrogant and prideful about their status.
  • The Worf Effect: Before he appears, some of the examinees talk about how strong the aristocrats are. Then comes Salim, who invites Yuno to a fight with him and is beaten in a matter of seconds.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He had green hair in the one-shot. In the anime, he's depicted as a blond instead.

  • Break Them by Talking: During his battle with Asta, he tries telling the latter to give up because he's a loser. Fortunately for Asta, Yuno gives him some words of encouragement and he quickly defeats Revchi.
  • The Bus Came Back: He was completely absent following his initial appearance until Chapter 170, where he escapes from detainment because of the elves' attacks on the royal capital.
  • Chain Pain: His magic is creating and manipulating chains.
  • Evil Gloating: This is what causes his plan to fail. If he hadn't gloated about Asta's being a loser, and had run away as soon as he could, he would have gotten away with it.
  • Rugged Scar: Gotten during his last mission with the Purple Orcas.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name in katakana is "Rebuchi", which can be rendered as "Lebuty" or "Revchi", the latter of which the official translation uses.
  • Starter Villain: He's the first villain to appear in the series.
  • Variable-Length Chain: Since they are made of magic.

  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Formed by her and her two friends during their date with Asta, Finral, and Luck.
  • Matchmaker Crush: Willing to help Asta with his crush, but thinks to herself that it doesn't mean that she has to give up on him.

A nun who works at the church in the town of Nairn and former Magic Knight.

She's a master of defensive Flame Magic, able to heal others.


  • Badass Teacher: She used to be Fuegoleon's magic instructor.
  • Friend to All Children: The reason she became a nun is that she saw children dying on the battlefield and decided to quit as a magic knight. She considers children to be the third leaf of the Clover Kingdom.
  • Good Shepherd: A nun who looks after children and tries to make Gauche into a better role model for his little sister.
  • Healing Hands: Her Soothing Holy Light spell.

  • Mama Bear: Don't mess with the kids under her care.
  • Never Mess with Granny: She may be old, but she is still a former magic knight.
  • Parental Substitute: She is the closest thing Marie and Gauche have to a parental figure. She's harsh on the latter for being a violent thug who's a bad influence on Marie, sort of like how a mother would be frustrated with a delinquent son, but she worries about him all the same. Likewise, Gauche calls her an "ogre" and disrespects her, but he still cares about her too (really, really deep down).
  • Playing with Fire: She uses flame magic.
  • Scars Are Forever: Has a scar over her left eye.
