Black Clover: Magic Knights Ranking System and Character Ranks

Black Clover: Magic Knights Ranking System and Character Ranks

The Order of the Magic Knight is a group of selected mages that protects the Clover Kingdom from a variety of threats, such as local crimes and invasions from other nations.

Anyone is welcome to join the organization. However, they would first need to pass the magic knights entrance exam, which consists of several tests to gauge each candidate’s physical and magical prowess.

Candidates who pass the exam are inducted by a captain into one of the Magic Knights’ squads and assigned the rank 5th Class Junior Magic Knight.

To advance and reach the top, they must complete countless missions, receive lots of stars, and accomplish many incredible feats.

Magic Knights Ranking System Explained

Members of the Magic Knights are divided into five ranks, each of which (except for the Grand Magic Knight, and the Wizard King) is further subdivided into five classes.

A class is similar to a rank within a rank, with the highest class being the first and the lowest being the fifth.

Magic knights must first advance from fifth to first class in each separate rank before moving up a rank.

To do this, they must accumulate/earn enough stars and merit by completing countless missions and accomplishing many incredible feats before the annual war merits conferment ceremony, an event where they will be officially promoted.

Magic Knights Ranks in Order

Black Clover - Magic Knight Rank in Order

Here is a list of the ranks from lowest to highest.

5. Junior Magic Knight (Subdivided into 5 classes)

4. Intermediate Magic Knight (Subdivided into 5 classes)

3. Senior Magic Knight (Subdivided into 5 classes)

2. Grand Magic Knight

1. Wizard King/Magic Emperor

5, 4 and 3. Junior, Intermediate, Senior Magic Knight

The Junior Magic Knight is the lowest rank in the magic knight assigned to entry-level mages.

They always start their journey as a 5th-class junior magic knight, and as they begin to earn stars, they gradually work their way up each class and rank.

Little is known about the other ranks in the magic knights. Even the promotion does not follow a set pattern.

All we know is that magic knights start as 5th Class Junior and work their way up to become a Grand Magic Knight, who eventually qualifies to become the Wizard King.

2. Grand Magic Knight

The Grand Magic Knight rank, unlike other lower ranks, isn’t further subdivided into classes.

While little is known about this rank, fans speculate that since it comes right before the wizard king’s rank, its members are powerful enough to surpass the wizard king.

And Based on the hierarchy, only the captains of the magic knight squads have the strength to accomplish the feat.

So, it’s safe to say that Grand Magic Knights are assigned to Captains of the Magic Knight Squad.

1. Wizard King/Magic Emperor

The Magic Emperor/Wizard King is the highest rank in the organization and the ruler of the Clover Kingdom.

The Wizard King is in charge of maintaining the peace and guarding the town and its inhabitants from lethal dangers. He is regarded to be the strongest mage in the kingdom.

To effectively govern the nation, the wizard king must possess outstanding leadership qualities and diplomatic acumen.

Becoming a wizard king is a dream come true for many young mages in the kingdom. This is what has continued to motivate our main characters, Asta and Yuno.

To become the wizard king, a magic knight must have attained the rank of the grand magic knight, be incredibly powerful, possess leadership skills, and be respected by everyone in the kingdom.

What is Asta Rank (Spoiler)?

Asta has advanced to the rank of 1st Class Senior Magic Knight of the Clover Kingdom in just three years of joining the order of the magic knight.

He was promoted during a special merit awarding ceremony after the events involving the Dark Triad and the Spade Kingdom.

Everyone, including the captains, believed he should have been ranked higher to the rank of a Grand Magic Knight for his display of strength against Lucifero. It’s possible that his ranking was affected by the circumstances surrounding the Devil Trial.

What is Yuno Rank (Spoiler)?

Yuno is the Vice-Captain of the Golden Dawn Squad and has advanced to the rank of Grand Magic Knight of the Clover Kingdom.

He was able to achieve this feat in just three years of joining the order of the magic knight, becoming the youngest magic knight to attain the grand magic knight. This achievement was formerly held by Rill Boismortier, Azure Deer Squad Captain.

Who Becomes the Wizard King After Julius Novachrono?

We are yet to know who will succeed Julius Novachrono and take over as the 29th wizard king. 

Yuno and Asta are potential contenders but are not likely to take on the title of 30th Wizard King as their powers and mental capacity to rule a kingdom have not yet reached their full potential.

Most fans believe Fuegoleon Vermillion is the perfect fit. Not only is it his ambition to succeed the wizard king, but he is also the most qualified candidate.

Fuegoleon is the captain of the crimson lion squad with a charismatic personality that translates his leadership skills.

He is an excellent tactician, fast to take hold of a situation and deploy orders appropriately while maintaining composure.

Not to mention, he is extremely powerful and has a strong resolve to never give up.

Who Becomes Wizard King: Asta Or Yuno?

Black Clover - Asta and Yuno

This is a tough question that every fan of black clover has thought about at least once without coming up with an answer. Our only hope is to wait on the creators to shed light on the matter. Nevertheless, most fans are rooting for Asta to succeed as the wizard king.

Since the beginning of the series, Yuno and Asta forged a bond over their ambitious goal of becoming the next Wizard King.

We know one of them would eventually end up on that seat.

From the start, Yuno had an advantage over Asta as he was a prodigy with a natural knack for magic.

Asta, on the other hand, was unable to use magic one bit. But he didn’t let that affect his dream, he never gave up and focused on improving what he had.

Today, Asta has become a fine magic knight accomplishing many incredible feats.

As we said earlier, it’s a tough call, and our only hope is to wait on the creators to shed more light on the matter.
