List of Most Powerful Villains In Black Clover
Without further ado, let’s get started with the list of villains in black clover.
Among the mid-ranked devil in Black Clover, it works for Nacht Faust, vice-captain of the Black Bulls of the Magic Knights of the Clover kingdom.
The devil has a short structure with pointed teeth and black horns that turns into a giant black creature when merged with Shadow Magic.
When by Unite Mode: Canis joins with Nacht, Gimodelo makes the latter gain ability to form a group of duplicates using his shadow.
Like Glimodelo, Slotos also falls under the category of mid-ranking devils who work for Nacht Faust, vice-captain of the Black Bulls of the Magic Knights of the Clover kingdom.
It is small in stature with a tail, horns, and wings by appearance. The appearance gets enlarged when it merges with Shadow Magic with a purple, horse-shaped mask.
Using Unite Mode: Equus, Slotos joins Nacht and thereby gives him an enhanced toughness of the body that makes him fight even in the immense gravity.
It is another mid-ranking devil in Black Clover that, just like Glimodelo and Slotos, works for Nacht Faust, vice-captain of the Black Bulls of the Magic Knights of the Clover kingdom.
Its appearance is also short and black, which turns into a large dark figure when merged with Shadow Magic.
Its prominent ability is speed. When by Unite Mode: Felis joins with Nacht, Plumede makes the latter gain increased agility.
Licht is the head of the Elf Tribe, who happens to be married to a human royal named Tetia.
He was not a demon initially, but after the Massacre of the Elf Tribe, he became a demon and later attacks the Clover Kingdom and gets killed by his brother-in-law, Prince Lemiel Silvamillion Clover, and the initial Magic Emperor.
Licht owns Demon-Dweller, Demon-Slayer, and Demon-Destroyer Swords, in addition to Sword magic that helps him enhance his fighting skills.
He could use Reinforcement Magic to increase his physical strength, Union Magic to make strong spells, and Forbidden Magic to extract powers from the underworld and cast spells.
It is a high-ranking devil in Black Clover who lives on the first level of the underworld, along with Lilith.
Since it is connected to the Tree of Qliphoth, it bears excellent magic powers that surpass the Dark triad.
It can use Demon Fire Magic to make the fire burn light, shadows, and invisible things.
It is also a high-ranking devil that, along with Nahamah, resides on the first level of the underworld. Since it is connected to the Tree of Qliphoth, it bears great magic powers that even surpass that of the Dark triad.
It can use Demon Ice Magic to make the ice freeze light, shadows, and invisible things.
After Nahamah was cut into two, Lilith joined their bodies together, and thereby both their abilities got significantly enhanced.
Rhya is an elf who happens to be one of the ten Apostles of Sephirah. He gets reborn into the Eye of the Midnight Sun’s Third Eye as a human.
His biggest strength is the Imitation Magic that makes him copy other magic for which he only needs to touch other’s grimoire.
Other than possessing incredible speed, strength, and magic powers in comparison to Patolli, he can also detect if the other person is being honest or lying.
Compound Magic, Seal Magic, and Transformation Magic are some of his other abilities.
This elf gets initially reborn as a human member of the Third Eye of the “Eye of the Midnight Sun” and later, after getting defeated in the Seabed Temple, gets reincarnated in an artificial body.
When forced to an extent, it can open its third eye and resemble the demon that attacked the Clover Kingdom many years ago.
This makes him even more potent in terms of more magic power, increased strength, and endurance.
The special magic named Demon Beast Magic can then be used by the evil to cast powerful spells and regenerate to great extents that other magic powers cannot do.
10. Moris Libardirt
Moris Libardirt controls the king of the Diamond kingdom and is a Magic Scholar. He begins to work for the Dark Triad of the Spade Kingdom after being forced out by Mars and becomes a host of Lucifero.

An elf and the head of the Eye of the Midnight Sun in Black Clover, Patolli gets a new life after losing his life in the artificial body of Licht and gets transformed into a Dark Elf.
Patolli, before transforming, could use rare Magic named Light Magic to manipulate light and increase its speed of moving, Creation Magic to make shape objects from the light, Healing Magic for the healing, and Reincarnation Magic to make the dead souls revive once again in the bodies of living creatures.
In addition to it, he could also combine with Drowa’s Mirror Magic his Light Magic to form the Union Magic. He was able to fight off in a one-on-one battle with Julius Novachrono.
In the form of Dark Elf, his abilities and powers get enhanced many times and grant him the use of certain more powerful magics like Demon Light Magic which is more powerful than the Light Magic and can manipulate black light and affect spells from hell.
He is among the low-ranking devils in the Black Clover present in the former grimoire of Licht that is with Asta and is the source of his anti-magic.
Using the anti-magic, he can cancel the effect of others’ magic and even manipulate the swords.
One thing about this devil that makes it enter among the strongest Black Clover villains is that it despises even the devils, making it unpredictable.
It also does not possess any magic power, which makes it easy for him to travel between the living world and the underworld. This interesting ability even the high-ranking devils do not own.
7. Witch Queen
Witch Queen is the mother of all the witches and rules the Witche’s Forest in Black Clover.
It bears magic powers comparable to elves, so much so that it can sense any mana in its surroundings and can entirely cover the Witche’s Forest. She can also control the birds to catch people.
Witch Queen bears Blood Magic to create or manipulate blood, Healing Magic for the purpose of recovery, and Creation Magic to form any objects from the blood. She can foresee the future as well.

He is the only one to own immense mana that most of the powerful elves do not own.
His unique ability is to perform the Kotodama magic that makes him change the surroundings and get magical and physical objects.
4. Zenon Zogratis
Zenon Zogratis is a host of the Beelzebub and is among the Zogratis siblings to be a member of the Dark Triad of the Spade Kingdom.
Since it is a devil host, it bears tremendous magic power that can be clearly justified when it easily defeats the army of the Diamond Kingdom.
This devil-possessed attribute of his makes him the owner of great power, and he can use both his Bone Magic to make and manipulate his own bones and Beelzebub’s Spatial Magic to manipulate space.
He is definitely one of the unique characters in manga and anime.
3. Dante Zogratis
Dante Zogratis is the host of Lucifero and a member of the Dark Triad of Spade Kingdom.
He is among the strongest antagonists of the anime series, and owing to his manipulative and toxic nature added to the superpowers he inherits. It becomes hard to defeat him.
His personality is easy-going and calm, yet he possesses great physical strength, high speed, great magic power, and quick body regeneration.
Along with his Body Magic, he can also use the Gravity Magic of Lucifero as he is devil possessed.
To further add to it, his ability to use up to 80% of Lucifero’s powers makes him immensely powerful and undefeatable.
2. Vanica Zogratis
This Zogratis sibling is part of Spade Kingdom’s Dark Triad and is the host of Megicula. The devil is the one that has imposed curses on Princess Lolopechka and Acier Silva.
It uses the Curse-Warding Magic to create some powerful curses that bear the ability to weaken the enemy’s spells.
As the devil has control of the soul of Acier Silva, it can use its Steel Magic to manipulate steel. And similarly, since it has Vanica’s soul under its control, it can use its Blood Magic to manipulate blood.
Megicula owns immense magic power and is tremendously strong that it cannot even be killed by a zero-ranked mage of the Heart Kingdom.
Now we come to the most powerful evil character in the Black Clover animated series.
And we know you will also agree with us. It is the highest-ranking devil among the three rulers of the underworld, along with Megicula and Zenon’s Devil.
Spade Kingdom’s Dark Triad member Dante Zogratis and the magic scholar Moris Libardirt act as his host.
He uses Gravity magic to manipulate gravity which makes even the strongest characters collapse in front of him.
Lucifero bears great magic power, speed, strength, and durability that can destroy the world and happens to be connected to the Tree of Qliphoth. He can even possess the devils no matter where they might be present.
That’s all with the list of villains from Black Clover who can act as powerful antagonists, much more than the protagonists, and undoubtedly have a considerable fan base equalling the latter.
These amazing characters bear some exciting powers that make the story and the arc even more fascinating, and we surely cannot miss them.
