Female characters have received the short end of the stick in shonen anime and manga, except for Black Clover and a select others. There has been a lot of criticisms levelled at the series over the years, especially with its similarities to My Hero Academia at the time of release. While both series share a common trope with an underpowered underdog hero amidst a society of super-powered individuals and his talented rival, Black Clover truly shines in terms of its depiction of female characters.
Characters in this series ranges from the complex emotionally turmoiled mind of Noelle to the fiery passion of Mereolleona, and the quirky Charmy to the powerful Witch Queen. Strong female characters with depth abound in the series, getting rid of the idea that shonen mangakas cannot write female characters. With that in mind, let’s look at the 10 most powerful female characters of Black Clover that have appeared in the manga till date.
Noelle, Fana, and 8 other formidable female characters in Black Clover
10. Sol Marron
Sol Marron, a member of the Blue Rose Knights, is her captain Charlotte Roselei’s devoted assistant; it goes without saying that whenever Charlotte is anywhere, Sol is too. Sol is an Earth Mage who can call out enormous Earth golems to fight for her. Though she possesses a three-leaf clover grimoire, she is not well recognised for having a lot of successes in battle.
She only made it to the second round of the Royal Knights Exam before being defeated, which is largely due to her general lack of strategic aptitude. As such, the fact that she makes it on to this list despite ranking at the bottom speaks to the series’ merits rather than her demerits, because of the feminist potential that is envisaged in the same.
One of the team’s lesser players is the endearing Black Bulls half-dwarf, half-human player. But only when she doesn’t take her fights seriously can this be said to be true. When she’s fully engaged, she can use her magic in a variety of ways, like changing into her other half and conjuring forth a big sheep that will battle for her. She has the ability to make food magic, enabling her to consume other forms of magic and defeat opponents that are much more powerful than she is. Over the years, numerous foes have undervalued her before being shocked by her true abilities.
With the revelation of her Human-Dwarf hybrid ancestry and the awakening of her Food Magic, Charmy is unquestionably one of Black Clover‘s finest female characters. She is now a very well-rounded combatant who is able to both heal and aid her allies. She also possesses a tremendous amount of offensive power. Based on debates about elf-human hybrids, Charmy’s background suggests that she possesses enormous mana reserves. She has more than enough tools to secure her place on this list even if this isn’t the case.
8. Charlotte Roselei
The Blue Rose, a member of the Magic Knight team, is led by Charlotte. A noblewoman who was born into the House Roselei. She has a reserved, sober, and uncaring disposition, caring nothing about people outside of the Magic Knights. She also appears to despise most men which might put off many readers although there are depths to her character that the manga will likely explore. However, despite these flaws, Charlotte’s affection for Yami is really adorable and the couple has been popular in fandom shippings.
Furthermore, Charlotte is a person who is constantly looking for methods to do better. This was seen in her desire to train under the guidance of the Spirit Guardians. Charlotte Roselei, a Magic Knight Captain, is unquestionably one of Black Clover‘s most powerful characters. She is a very adaptable opponent thanks to the many applications of her Briar Magic. She shares the majority of the women on this list’s royal heritage, which endows her with incredible stamina and mana reserves.
Fana is still one of Black Clover‘s most powerful female characters, despite having lost control of the Fire Spirit Salamander. She has the expertise and knowledge necessary to be effective in a combat thanks to the battles she participated in while a member of the Eye of the Midnight Sun.
Her mana supplies and power, as well as her magic abilities for Fire and Crystal, were increased by her Elf Host status.
6. Vanica Zogratis and Megicula
Categorising both these characters together might seem like a cop-off but hear us out. Megicula’s powers when alone is truly earth-shattering, but with Vanica’s own magic combined with it (as Megicula’s host), the duo have proven close to unstoppable. Megicula performs a similar support role to her host and is a curse-warding magic user. She is also capable of using Acier Silva’s powerful Steel Magic because she holds his soul.
Vanica Zogratis’ Curse-Warding and Blood Magic, meanwhile, contribute to her strength as a warrior. With the former trait, she excels in a support position, assisting teammates and impeding foes with her curses. She can participate in frontline combat because to the latter quality, which also gives her the flexibility to make almost any weapon.
5. Noelle Silva
In Black Clover, Noelle Silva has at last discovered her true potential. Several people who knew her mother have even made direct comparisons between her skills and those of Acier, one of the greatest Magic Knights ever seen. Noelle has enormous mana reserves thanks to her royal title, which also enhances her endurance, which is practically unmatched. Her inability to manage her magical reserves was the main obstacle, but she has made significant progress in conquering it.
She has gained strength, though, and has mastered using her substantial mana supply to cast some of the most potent water spells in the show. She will undoubtedly outperform most, if not all, of the women above in her role as the primary character.
4. The Witch Queen (or the Queen of Witches)
The queen of witches is a strong leader, but fortunately the heroes didn’t have to actually defeat her. She has mastery over Blood Magic, and with it, she is able to perform a variety of tasks, such as heal a victim, make weapons, or take control of their body.
Her ability to predict the future makes her a deadly foe. She is so formidable that the Clover or Spade Kingdoms haven’t had the bravery to invade her realm in years due to her strength. She has remained living for more than a hundred years thanks to the strength of her magic, and nothing appears to be trying to change that.
3. Mereolleona Vermilion
As the stronger, older sister of Fugoleon, Mereolleona soon became everyone’s favourite both on-screen and beyond since her appearance. Her indomitable, fiery ability, mentorship of Noelle and burning love has managed to take down several elves during the invasion of the elves. That combined with her wild spirit (literally) can enable her to triumph over seemingly any adversary, while destroying the myth that there is no place for strong women in shonen.
Mereoleona is a devastating, unstoppable force thanks to her vast mana reserves, affinity for mana from her time spent in the wild, and noble pedigree. Her limitations are difficult to categorise because she overcomes practically every obstacle Black Clover sets in her path.
The issue with most characters on this list can be attributed to their lack of screen time and achievements is that they don’t actually know any combat spells. Lolopechka is one of these characters. As with everyone else on this list, Lolopechka has the disadvantage of not having experience fighting in war. With her immensely large mana stores, Lolopechka can cast spells over the whole Heart Kingdom.
Her possession of the Water Spirit Undine highlights her hidden power even more. She is regarded as one of the most powerful individuals on the globe and the princess of the Heart Kingdom, especially in light of the fact that she possesses limitless mana stores.
1. Dorothy Unsworth
What can rank higher than pure elemental power? The power to create, of course. Black Clover fans were first exposed to Dorothy as a joke figure who was frequently found dozing off. She does, however, develop a carefree, playful, and vivacious attitude. After the Elf-Reincarnation storyline, Dorothy swiftly established herself as a key figure in the series. She was possessed by the elf Reeve during the Arc, greatly enhancing Dorothy’s magical power.
Dorothy Unsworth is a witch from the forest of witches and despite sleeping all the time, she is immensely strong. She is even stronger than the Queen of Witches. Although we haven’t seen her fight very often, what we have seen of her has been quite terrible. She is the leader of the Coral Peacock Magic Knights. In her dream realm, which she can draw anyone into, Dorothy uses Dream Magic. Even if someone attempted to steal her magical power, she would just engage them in a creation battle in which she would win and the other person’s body would disintegrate. While Mereolleona and Noelle, and even Roselei might rank above her in terms of feats, she outclasses the rest in terms of her potential, that can be termed nothing less than omnipotent.
