Black Clover Wiki

Lucifero 「ルチフェロ Ruchifero」 is a highest-ranking devil and one of the three rulers of the underworld,[3] residing on the lowest level.[4] He has contracted with Dante Zogratis, a member of the Spade Kingdom's Dark Triad,[5] as well as with Moris Libardirt.[6]


Lucifero is a tall figure with four bat-like wings, four curved upward-pointing horns coming from the temples and the sides of his head, long light-colored hair, pointed teeth, and dark-colored sclera. his hands are thin and boney with black fingernails. His lower body is covered in a long, dark-colored skirt.

Due to the manifestation being incomplete, Lucifero's skin is twisted and heavily covered in wrinkles.[7]

In order to manifest through the second gate, Lucifero combines countless devils into a tentacled blob. One tentacle has the devil's four horns and a mouth with black pointed teeth.[8]


Like most devils, Lucifero is arrogant and cruel, looking down on those he considers weaker than himself, like lower-ranked devils and humans. As such, he holds little regard for their feelings, using and killing them as he sees fit[9][10] and forcing them to prostrate themselves before him.[11] He also greatly detests when they interfere with his plans.[9][12]


Lucifero seizes Liebe's body.

After discovering that Liebe has reached the living world, Lucifero attempts to take over the low-ranked devil's body. Liebe's foster mother, Richita, tries to stop Lucifero, so the devil plunges Liebe's left arm through her. However, she refuses to give up and succeeds in forcing Lucifero out. He laughs and promises to return one day.[9]

During his fight with Asta, Dante Zogratis asks Lucifero about Asta's devil, but Lucifero claims to not know the devil and considers him to be a low-ranking devil due to his spell-erasing power.[5]

After the Dark Triad to the Spade Kingdom, Moris Libardirt also becomes a host for Lucifero and uses his devil-boosted Modification Magic to copy over Lolopechka's inherited knowledge, which allows him to devise a method of accelerating the Qliphoth Advent Ritual.[13]

A few days later, the first gate to the underworld opens, and Dante is able to access 100% of Lucifero's power that was granted to him.[14] Morris alters the Tree of Qliphoth, enabling it to continue without the Dark Triad, who have all been defeated. As the same time, Lucifero has prepared a method to escape after the second gate opens.[15]

The Ultra Giant Bull punches Lucifero's monstrous manifestation.

After the Black Bulls defeat Moris and knock him unconscious, Lucifero forces Moris's body to expel the last of his magic and life in order to accelerate the ritual, opening the second gate. As the horde of devils pour out, Lucifero seizes control of them and pulls them into a large mass, along with devils from the first level and the coffins holding Yami Sukehiro and William Vangeance. Lucifero then shapes the mass into a giant creature into which he can manifest. His new body bursts out of the castle and increases the gravity in the surrounding area. However, the Black Bulls take the pieces of the castle and some of the devil's magic power, and combine them into the base, creating the Ultra Giant Bull, which punches Lucifero.[16] He recovers and increases the gravity around the base, causing it to crumble. One of his tentacles threatens to crush the Resistance members at the front gate, but Mereoleona Vermillion and Fuegoleon Vermillion combine their Fire Magic and incinerate the tentacle. The Ultra Giant Bull punches with Mana Corkscrew and then fires numerous magic beams, tearing holes through the monster. However, the devil regenerates and increases gravity again, crushing the base.[17]

Lucifero partially manifests from the monster's remains.

Lucifero's monster form continues to grow, but Asta releases a flying slash that slices the monster in two, as well as destroying the coffins holding Yami and William.[18] As half of the monster's body falls toward the castle town, Yuno Grinberryall shoots an arrow that destroys enough of it to save the citizens and Magic Knights below.[19] The leftover flesh then swirls together and compresses into a sphere, from which Lucifero manifests in a half-complete form. He forces all of the humans to lie face down in the ground. When he sees Asta flying toward the capital, he recognizes Asta as the one who stopped his manifestation, and suddenly appears next to the Black Bull.[20] When Liebe angrily demands to know if Lucifero recognizes him, Lucifero claims not to know Liebe and uses gravity to slam Asta into the ground. After Asta and Liebe Unite, Lucifero warps space to avoid their first attack, but when they track down Lucifero, he catches the Demon-Slayer Sword in his hand. He drags a finger along the edge, drawing a drop of blood, which infuriates him. He then punches Asta, sending him crashing next to the ruins of the Black Bull base. As Lucifero approaches where Asta landed, the captains rally around Asta and prepare to confront the devil.[21]

Battle Prowess


  • Gravity Magic: Lucifero uses this magic attribute to manipulate gravity.[22][23] With just a simple gesture, he can drastically increase the gravity of the surrounding area, causing even the strongest of mages to collapse.[24] Additionally, he can warp space in order to evade attacks[25] and can affect intangible concepts, like dreams.[26]


  • Immense Magic Power: As the strongest devil connected to the Tree of Qliphoth,[4] Lucifero possesses immense magic power[27][5] that threatens to destroy the living world if released.[4] Even in an incomplete form, his magic power is overwhelming and constantly increases, faster than Henry Legolant can drain it,[28] and allowing him to combat seven boosted Magic Knight Captains at the same time with no effort.[29]
  • Immense Strength: Even in an incomplete form, Lucifero is strong enough to stop a swing from Asta's Demon-Slayer Sword and completely hold it in place with just one hand. He can also send Asta flying into the ground with tremendous force with only a single punch.[30] With one hand, he caught an incoming punch from Mereoleona Vermillion and crushed the bones in her left forearm.[31]
  • Immense Speed: Even in an incomplete form, Lucifero is able to clear great distances in an instant.[32]
  • Devil Possession: Lucifero has the ability to take control of the bodies of low-ranked devils, regardless of where they are.[9] Once the second gate opens, Lucifero can control countless devils all at once and combine them into a body into which he can manifest himself.[35]


  • Lucifero is the Italian pronunciation of Lucifer.
    • In the Italian epic poem Divine Comedy, Satan is imprisoned in the lowest circle of Hell and is referred to as Lucifer.
