I want to get all fired up with the tough guys who manage to survive in a place like that. Humans who are weak enough to die don't interest me.

— To Lolopechka in Water Crusade

Vanica 「ヴァニカ Vanika」 is a member of the Spade Kingdom's Dark Triad[1] and the host of the devil Megicula.[2]


Vanica is a woman with medium-length, dark-colored hair. Her most notable feature is an eyepatch that covers her right eye and is emblazoned with a spade symbol.

Vanica wears a high-collared vest and matching short skirt. She has a wide, dark-colored belt buckled at her waist and hangs her grimoire pouch off of it in the back. She also has a pair of belts forming an X on her chest. A third belt wraps around her skirt. Over this, she wears a dark-colored fur coat with a short, light-colored fur mantle on top. She also wears a pair of thigh-high, dark-colored boots and a tiara with five spikes.

When using 50% of Megicula's power, Vanica sprouts a pair of curved horns from the top of her head and bat-like wings from her back. A marking expands out from under her eyepatch, and her right canine teeth elongate. A dark-colored magic covers half of her body, including the right horn and wing.[3] When she reaches 70%, more of her body is covered, and a light-colored symbol appears on her chest. She grows a tail and its tip has a similar shape to the symbol on her chest.[4]

When Megicula takes control of Vanica's body, the hair on Vanica's right lightens in color, her right pupil becomes slit-like, and a dark-colored mark appears around her left eye. The mark is a circle with several dots along its length.[5]



Vanica is an enthusiastic individual. She likes to fight people who are in good condition because she believes that it is more fun than fighting weaker opponents.[6] She derides weaker opponents as "trash" and instead desires to battle incredibly powerful opponents, such as Lolopechka, in order to mitigate her sense of boredom. She fully supports Dante Zogratis's plan to create the Tree of Qliphoth, which will summon legions of devils into the world and bring about massive human casualties and catastrophic destruction, because it would weed out the weak from humanity and allow her to fight the strong survivors for her own amusement.[7]

Vanica likes doing things flashy. She hates being bored and is prone to jealousy.

Vanica is dismissive of her devoted followers. When they express thanks for reviving them, she considers their words to be nonsense and is completely untouched by their immense loyalty and reverence to her.[8] Later Vanica even showed that she truly held absolutely no attachment or empathy to her subordinates despite their loyalties and had no qualms with using them as literal human bombs to destroy the Heart Kingdom.

Vanica also possesses the same inhumane demeanor and disposition as her fellow Dark Triad members. Without hesitation, she orders her subordinates to kill and slaughter the citizens of the Heart Kingdom and has them focus their attacks in the densely populated areas of the Kingdom for the sole purpose of further motivating her true target to fight her more seriously.


During a fight with Acier Silva, Vanica takes a child hostage, which motivates Acier to become stronger,[9] and manages to curse Acier.[10]

Lolopechka fights Vanica

Vanica infiltrates the Heart Kingdom and fights Princess Lolopechka.

Vanica infiltrates the Heart Kingdom, fights the Spirit Guardians, and curses Princess Lolopechka. She then returns to the Spade Kingdom.[11][12]

Vanica attends a meeting with the rest of the Dark Triad and complains to Dante Zogratis that she was not allowed to do something flashy, like Zenon's attack on the Diamond Kingdom.[1]

Six months later, Vanica and her five Dark Disciples are sent to the Heart Kingdom to defeat Princess Lolopechka and the other mages there.[6] The group infiltrates the kingdom and then splits apart, with each member attacking a separate location.[13]

Vanica and one of her Disciples break into Lolopechka's underground chamber. Vanica expresses her desire to fight the Princess and explains that she attacked the kingdom's citizens so that Lolopechka would be more motivated to fight her. Noelle Silva points out that they have defeated Vanica's Disciples, but the Disciple who Mimosa Vermillion defeated seconds ago, stands back up. Vanica demonstrates how the curse she placed on her Disciples will keep resurrecting them, and tells the Disciple to handle Noelle and Mimosa. After the other Disciples around the kingdom revive, Vanica challenges Lolopechka.[14]

Noelle fires off Sea Dragon's Roar, but Vanica blocks it with her Blood Magic spell, Red Beast, and ridicules Noelle's attack. When Noelle is distracted by Mimosa, Vanica charges forward and has her beast wildly tear at a defensive wall of water.[15] Enjoying the fight with Lolopechka, Vanica reveals that Dante and Zenon are abducting the users of Dark Magic and World Tree Magic but refuses to explain more when Noelle asks.[16] After Lolopechka researches those clues and learns about the Tree of Qliphoth plan, she questions why Vanica wishes to destroy humanity, to which Vanica replies that she wants to fight the strong who survive. Lolopechka then traps Vanica in a column of water and creates around them all a giant body of water, which halves the power of Vanica's Blood Magic, dissolving her Red Beast. The water also boosts Noelle's power, and the Clover royal swims over and drives her lance into Vanica's abdomen. Vanica laughs as blood spills from her mouth.[17]

Vanica draws on 50% of Megicula's power and creates a large clawed hand, with which she slashes at Noelle. As Noelle continues dodging attacks, Vanica steadily increases how much devil's power she is using.[18] When Vanica reaches 70%, her limit, Secre Swallowtail flies into the Ludic Sanctuary and seals Vanica with Eternal Prison.[19] Megicula's Decaying World spell weakens the natural mana arrays, however, and the devil takes control of Vanica's body, destroys the prison and sanctuary, binds Secre, and curses Undine. Vanica complains about Megicula interfering with her fun.

Lolopechka crumples due to pain from her curse and distress over Undine. Seeing this, Vanica loses interest in fighting Lolopechka and prepares to kill her. Noelle tells Vanica to stop and charges at her, but Vanica dismisses her as slow and weak and strikes at her with spikes of blood. Noelle's Valkyrie Dress deflects the spikes from hitting vital spots. Noelle refuses to give up despite their difference in power, which shocks Vanica and Megicula, and drives her lance through Vanica again.[20] Noelle follows it up with a Point-Blank Sea Dragon's Roar, which Vanica destroys with a Red Beast. Vanica calls the attack pointless but then coughs up blood as the spell somehow injured her, much to Vanica's surprise. Remembering her fight with Acier, Vanica decides to take Lolopechka hostage in order to motivate Noelle to become stronger.[21]

Vanica then flies away from the Heart Kingdom and discards her Dark Disciples by detonating their devil power, thus turning them into bombs.[22]
