Asta is the main protagonist of Black Clover. Asta possesses a five-leaf clover grimoire and is a 3rd Class Junior Magic Knight. He was an orphan left under the care of a church in the village of Hage.


Asta is short for his age with a surprisingly muscular build. He has messy tufts of light grey hair sticking out in odd directions which are being held up with a black headband. His irises are golden and he usually wears a determined look on his face. He carries his grimoire in a wide, brown leather holster-like pouch which is attached to his belt.


Asta has a rather cheerful and hyperactive personality and has no trouble in expressing his thoughts. He tends to get excited very easily, which often annoys those around him. Asta is known to shout when expressing his goals or thoughts which makes others see him as some kind of airhead. Asta also had a strong determination to get his grimoire, despite not showing any signs of possessing any actual magic. He worked and trained especially hard only to receive nothing when grimoires were being given out until he received the five-leaf clover grimoire which eventually came to him.

Asta can also be incredibly reckless which often leads into his own misfortune. However, Asta can also be very heroic, as he stood up to the bullies who were bullying Yuno when they were both children despite him not having any magical abilities. Asta also believes that those who have done wrong must stand up for their wrongdoings. He also has an extremely strong sense of justice as he believes that everyone deserves to be protected in a fight.

Though Asta can be overly friendly, hyper and stubborn, he has earned the respect of almost everyone he meets, including nobles. He has also earned the affection of several girls despite people initially seeing him as a joke when he didn't get his grimoire.
