Black Clover Wiki

Aaaaaah! I want to hurry and make friends with everybody too.

— To Gauche Adlai in Assault

Gordon Agrippa 「ゴードン・アグリッパ Gōdon Agurippa[1] is a commoner of the Agrippa Family[2] and a 1st Class Junior Magic Knight of the Clover Kingdom's Black Bull squad.[3][4]


Gordon is a slender, young man with pale skin and short black hair that is slicked back. His face is long with a large nose and lacks eyebrows. He wears black eyeshadow in large circles around his red eyes, and also wears black lipstick and nail polish.

His attire consists of a dark grey jacket red trimming and red cuffs. His pants are a matching grey and are tucked into knee-high black boots. He wears a black belt over his jacket and a black pouch for his grimoire hangs on his left hip. Over this he wears the Black Bull's signature robe. His dark grey peaked cap has a black band and bill and the Black Bull badge.

After temporarily becoming an otaku, Gordon wears a short denim jacket with torn-off sleeves, a sleeveless shirt with "I♥マナ" ("I ♥ mana") printed on the front, a pair of jeans, a pair of glasses with swirly lenses, and a bandana wrapped around his head.[5]



Gordon is constantly mumbling to himself[3][6] and dislikes being in the sun.[7] His quiet mumbling makes it extremely difficult for him to communicate with anyone. When coupled with his grim appearance, Gordon often intimidates the people around him, leaving him in a near-perpetual state of loneliness.

In reality, however, Gordon is a deeply empathetic and kindhearted individual. He constantly fantasizes about bonding with his squadmates all of whom he considers his friends, and while unheard, he frequently makes positive and encouraging remarks directed at his fellow Black Bull members. He readily accepts new members of the Black Bull as his new friends without hesitation. Gordon also has great interpersonal insight, able to quickly perceive and understand people in a relatively short amount of time, even antisocial individuals such as Gauche. His friendly nature and positive words are constantly overshadowed by his very low volume and others talking over him, and he is somewhat sensitive to upsetting comments and the idea of being left alone.

Gordon is capable of raising his voice to a normal volume, especially in defense of his squadmates[8][9] and in other serious situations.[10]


Gordon was born into the Agrippa Family, a commoner family infamous for their Curse Magic. He grows up lonely and unable to make friends due to his magic and appearance. After receiving his grimoire, Gordon abandons his family and joins the Black Bull squad of the Magic Knights. Over the years, he comes to view them as friends.[11]

Gordon accompanies Yami Sukehiro and Finral Roulacase to the Magic Knights Entrance Exam that Asta is taking.[3] After the exam is finished, Gordon heads back to the Black Bulls base with Yami, Finral, and Asta.[12] When they arrive back to their headquarters, Gordon watches along with the rest of the Black Bulls as Asta takes the Black Bull Initiation Ceremony.[13]

Gordon does not accompany the Black Bulls to Raque because he dislikes the sun.[7] However, he later sulks in the corner after the squad returns because he was left out of the mission to the Seabed Temple.[14]

Gordon and Gauche researching

Gordon and Gauche research in the royal library.

Later, in search of a cure for Asta's cursed broken arms, Gordon reaches out to his family for information, but they refuse to help.[15] Instead, Gordon and Gauche Adlai research curses in the royal library.[6] However, they return unsuccessful and transformed into otakus. Asta reveals that his arms are healed, and Gauche and Gordon threaten to re-curse his arms.[16] Afterwards, Gordon is invited to the Star Awards Festival but is too nervous to go.[17]

Gordon and Grey make themselves heard

Gordon and Grey shout that they will protect their friends.

Weeks later, Gordon tries to socialize with Gauche Adlai and Grey. However, they are interrupted when Rades Spirito, Sally, Valtos, and an army of corpses attack the Black Bulls base.[18] When Sally enhances one of the corpses, Gordon destroys it with poison badgers.[19] Rades summons No.0 - Michael Caesal and easily defeats the Black Bulls, but Gordon refuses to give up after reflecting on what the squad and base mean to him.[20]

The other Black Bulls are shocked when Henry Legolant appears from the base,[21] and Gordon senses that Henry is human, to the puzzlement of the others. After failing to hit Henry, Rades tries to attack the other three, but Henry moves part of the base into the path of the attack, defending his squadmates. Henry introduces himself and promises to hurt those who hurt his friends. The other Black Bulls are shocked to see the base rearrange into a giant bull[22] and how recklessly it fights.[23]

When Sally manages to topple the base, the other Black Bulls come to Henry's defense, with Grey transmuting the Gel Magic into Plant Magic, which makes Gordon's Poison Magic more effective. Rades tries to take advantage of their distraction, but Henry defends them and defeats Michael Caesar.[24] As the Black Bulls celebrate their victory, Valtos reappears and then disappears with the other Eye of the Midnight Sun members. Afterwards, Gordon breathes a sigh of relief and mumbles about Henry being his new friend.[25]

Gauche turns on Black Bulls

Drowa attacks the Black Bulls.

After being saved from the Arrows of Judgment, Gordon and the other Black Bulls notice light coming from the horizon. Suddenly Gauche begins glowing[26] and is possessed by Drowa, who turns on Gauche's squadmates.[27] After they are defeated, the elf leaves.[28] Later, some other Black Bulls return to the base and find Gordon, Grey, and Henry sitting among the rubble.[29] When Charmy returns and finds her garden destroyed, she feeds her squadmates with Sheep Cook: Master Chef's food, which restores their magic power. Once the base reassembles, the Black Bulls head out to protect the kingdom.[30]

When they reach Hecairo, Gordon fires off Verbotenes Obst through one of the base's cannons, and Henry amplifies the strength and directs it at the possessed Coral Peacock.[31] After Asta exorcises the elves, the Black Bulls' celebration is interrupted by Rades, Sally, and Valtos.[32] Gordon informs Asta that the three attacked the base earlier.[33] Once all three are convinced to help save the kingdom, Valtos teleports the base to the capital.[34]

When they see a group of elves attacking from the floating dungeon, the base is warped inside Clover Castle.[35] Gordon lends his Poison Magic to one of the cannons again, and the amplified shot strikes the possessed Nils Ragus.[36] In retaliation, Reve pulls part of the base into her Glamour World while Drowa and Patolli combine spells to break apart the rest of the base.[37]

Demon-Destroyer Sword frees Black Bulls

Gordon and the others are freed from Eclat's paralysis.

As Gordon, Grey, Henry, Asta, Rades, and Valtos fall, Gordon creates a large cloud of poison which Grey transmutes into cotton, cushioning their fall. Yami orders the Black Bulls to handle the elves as he heads into the Shadow Palace. However, before the Black Bulls can act, Drowa and Eclat immobilize them all.[38] Asta's Demon-Destroyer Sword frees him, Gordon, Grey, and Henry from the enchantment, and Gordon refracts one of Drowa's attack with his poison.[39] When Asta is reflected up into the air, Gordon helps lift a section of the base around Asta, allowing him time to enter his black form.[40] Following Asta to the top of the dungeon, Gordon and Grey ride atop Henry's mini base and protect an immobilized Asta with a mirrored curtain of transmuted poison.[41]

Drowa creates a mirror ball to scatter light and distract Asta's black form and then tries to catch them all with a large reflection of Eclat's eye, so Henry has them cram into the base and Grey transmutes the outside into mirrors. Before Drowa can destroy the mini base, Henry jettisons the other three and then throws himself at the elves.[42] Gordon covers Drowa's mirror ball with poison so that Asta's black form will be drawn to the elves.[43] After Asta strikes the elves with his Demon-Destroyer Sword, Gordon watches as the boy exorcises the elf spirits.[44]

Black Bulls tackle Gauche

Gordon, Grey, and Asta tackle Gauche.

Gordon and Grey lean over Gauche, which startles him when he wakes. Gauche eventually drops his aloof nature and thanks everyone for saving him and his sister. Gordon, Grey, and Asta tackle him in a hug. Suddenly, the other Black Bulls drop from above and land in a pile of cotton. With the Black Bulls reunited—except Finral, they prepare to follow after Yami into the Shadow Palace.[45]

While the group is recovering their strength, they are attacked by two elves, but Fuegoleon and Mereoleona Vermillion arrive and defeat the elves.[46] The gate to the Shadow Palace is shrinking and more possessed Golden Dawns attack, so the Black Bulls and Kirsch Vermillion remain to hold them off while the captains, Asta, Noelle Silva, and Mimosa Vermillion fly to the gate.[47] Shortly after, Yuno and a group of Magic Knights arrive in the castle and defeat the elves. Gordon watches as Yuno's pendant reopens the gate to the Shadow Palace and as Yuno and Charmy fly into it.[48]

Black Bulls barge into courthouse

The Black Bulls crash the trial.

A few days later, the Black Bulls barge into the Magic Parliament Courthouse to rescue Asta and Secre.[49] Damnatio Kira shrinks their spells, but Asta uses the Demon-Destroyer Sword's ability to remove the effect. Nozel and Fuegoleon then interrupt the fight and pass on a mission from Julius: the Black Bulls will be exiled while the squad investigates devils and monitors Asta and Secre.[50]

Gordon, along with Grey, Gauche, and Asta, returns to his family home. After dinner, Gordon asks his father to teach them about devils and curses. Nathan shows them his workshop, which horrifies them, but he reveals that he has been using his research to create treatments and cures, which surprises Gordon. Nathan then creates a map that shows the locations of curses throughout the kingdom, and they notice a particularly powerful one in the Heart Kingdom.[51] Gordon stays to continue studying Curse Magic while the other Black Bulls return to their base.[52]

During his research and training, Gordon learns how to modify his Poison Magic, turning it into medicine that can boost his allies' abilities.

Six months later, Gordon returns to the Black Bull base and wishes to join them on the mission to rescue Yami.[53] After Asta uses his new Unite to defeat the demon sent from the Spade Kingdom, he suddenly drops out of the form but is saved by Finral, who uses portals to drop him onto the roof of the base. Gordon and some of the other Black Bulls greet him.[54] They travel to the Spade Kingdom[55] and smash through the walls of the castle to the ritual chamber.[56]

Moris Libardirt attacks them with tendrils that begin disassembling the base and bypass Rouge's protection. Grey, with Gauche's help, transmutes the tendrils into plants, so Moris switches to Gravity Magic. Gordon touches Henry and uses Curse-Worker's Neighbor to alter Henry's curse, enabling Henry to target a specific person to drain. Henry then drains Moris's magic power and uses it to reinforce the base. After the base punches Moris, the rest of the Black Bulls show up.[57] The Black Bulls shout for Yami, waking him up. When he laughingly asks if they all like him that much, they enthusiastically affirm that they do, and he echoes the sentiment.[58]

Lucifero uses Moris's magic and life to accelerate the ritual, causing the second gate to open. As the devils pour out, Lucifero takes control of them and merges them all together, and the Black Bulls watch in dismay as the coffins holding Yami and William are pulled into the mass of flesh. While Lucifero's monstrous form breaks out of the castle, Gordon helps Henry absorb more magic power, enabling him to combine portions of the castle into the base. The created Ultra Giant Bull then punches Lucifero.[59] The Black Bulls gather together in the cockpit, and Gordon continues altering Henry's curse, although the devil's increasing power surpasses what Henry can drain.[60] They all encourage Asta to defeat the monster without hurting the captains[61] so they do not lose hope when Lucifero heavily damages the base.[62]

After Asta slashes the monster in half, the base catches Yami as he falls. The Black Bulls then gather around Yami on the hand and are overjoyed to see him.[63] The tearful reunion is cut short when Lucifero partially manifests from the monster's remains and crushes the area with heavy gravity.[64] Most of the squad is buried and trapped beneath the base's rubble.[65]

After Lucifero is defeated and Yami and Nacht Faust are on the verge of death, Rouge reaches a thread into the rubble, and the rest of the Black Bulls fly out on The Mini Bull through one of Finral's spatial portals. With help from Charmy's magic-restoring food, Mimosa's Ultimate Magic, Flower Princess Utopia, saves the captain and vice-captain. With the Black Bulls together again, they thank Nacht for his help and welcome him, which he accepts.[66]

A year and three months later, the Black Bull and Golden Dawn squads take the base to investigate devil activity along the kingdom's border.[67] Yuno defeats the high-ranking devils, but Adramelech escapes.[68] Afterward, Nacht tells the Black Bulls to behave before he heads back to the Capital. Magna and Luck begin fighting, so Gordon and Grey plead for them to stop. When Nacht returns with Vanessa Enoteca and Finral, he informs the rest of the squad about the attack on Asta and his apparent death. However, they all refuse to accept that Asta is dead and head out together to find him.[69]

The search for Asta leads the Black Bulls back to the Witches Forest where they ask the Witch Queen for her help. The Witch Queen tells the Bulls that Asta is alive but too far away for any of them to summon him. Suddenly, Dorothy Unsworth arrives and reveals that there is a way to reach Asta. By combining their magic with Finral's spatial magic, they can cast the Door of Fate, a massive compound magic spell that will allow them to reach Asta. The Black Bulls, Dorothy and the Witch Queen immediately begin work on the ritual. Right as they are about to begin the spell, they are interrupted by the arrival of paladin Damnatio Kira and several guardian angels who have been sent to thwart the Black Bulls from retrieving Asta.

Damnatio begins to attack the ritual site but the Black Bulls fight back with their combined efforts and magic. Gordon uses Curse-Worker's Neighbor on Henry in order to use his magic absorption to neutralize Damnatio's scale magic and give the rest of the Bulls a fighting chance. Damnatio unsheathes a sword and retaliates against the duo, slicing the Black Bulls hideout to pieces. However, Gauche had used his mirror magic to create copies of Grey to restore everyone's injuries, allowing Gordon and Grey to continue absorbing Damnatio's magic. Damnatio unfortunately catches onto their strategy and wounds Gauche and Grey with the rest of the Black Bulls being defeated soon after. In a last ditch effort to stop Damnatio, Gordon, Henry and Secre attempt to fly into the paladin only to be sent crashing into the ritual site.

The efforts of the Black Bulls were not in vain however as they successfully managed to buy time for Asta to arrive and step through the portal. Asta quickly defeats Damnatio, allowing the Witch Queen to use her magic to heal everyone's injuries. Asta reveals to everyone that he does have a plan to fight Lucius and uses his demon dweller sword to share his anti-magic powers with the rest of his squad. Now imbued with anti-magic, the Black Bulls depart for the Clover Kingdom. Upon arriving, the Black Bulls immediately head to assisting the overwhelmed magic knights. Gordon arrives to the aid of captains William Vangeance and Charlotte Roselei, using his enhanced Curse-Worker's Neighbor spell on their curses to empower them both.
