The Grimoires in Black Clover explained

The Grimoire is a book, which is essential for a magic-user to be considered a magician. Each grimoire is different from the others, although only the names of two grimoires are known.

The grimoire responds naturally to the request of its master, but there are circumstances where magic is strengthened, and at the same time manifests, the factors are:

  • Being born with the ability to control magic.
  • The skill can be acquired through persistence, diligent study, and unrelenting effort.
  • On rare occasions, magical power is acquired from those with strong wills, when they are in or are in the midst of disaster and crisis.

The magic knights belonging to a royal family were blessed with a vast amount of magical power, besides controlling magic by instinct (except Noelle), which most of them don’t train, the case of Lower Class/Commoners are Few of those who manifest it with great magical power and having control of it, mostly always wait for the acceptance ceremony for this to happen.

How does a Grimoire work?

These books possess the characteristic of concentrating the magic of the users in the forms of various spells. When a grimoire is in use, it tends to levitate close to its wielder and follows wherever the wielder moves. Grimoires themselves choose their owners according to their magical abilities. An example of this is that the four-leaf Grimoire chose Yuno as Yuno has great spiritual, physical, and mental power that corresponds to the four-leaf Grimoire.

Asta had to take the bad part as he didn’t receive any except for the five-leaf grimoire, which is one of the most enigmatic grimoires on Earth. Each kingdom has grimoires with the insignia of their respective kingdoms, Clover, Diamond, Heart, and Spade. In the Clover Kingdom, the grimoires are classified according to the number of leaves that the clover drawing has on the cover of the grimoire, and can range from three to five leaves.

Each leaf represents something:

  • The first three leaves represent “sincerity”, “hope”, and “love” .
  • The fourth leaf symbolizes “good fortune”.
  • The fifth leaf symbolizes the “demon”.
