Asta is one of the main characters in Black Clover anime. Ever since we remember him, he has only one goal and that is to become the wizard king. The path to becoming the wizard king is not an easy one and Asta will surely be facing many difficulties along his way in Black Clover.

Not having Magic is not a disadvantage for Asta
One of the difficulties we can think of is that he has no magic (not legit). Yes, it’s not legit. Even though he may not have any magic abilities, he makes up for it with his brute strength and speed, and having anti-magic abilities more than covers up for not having magic abilities.
We have seen in many scenarios that he has been able to keep up with and even defeat many powerful opponents using his anti-magic abilities. So, it’s more than enough proof that not having magic is not a disadvantage for Asta in Black clover. Rather, I would say it’s actually an advantage for Asta since not having any magic at all enables him to wield the anti-magic sword.
Asta’s Grimoire – Black Clover
Enough wandering, let’s get to the point. I think, Asta’s greatest enemy in achieving his goal will be his own Grimoire, the black clover. Doesn’t make sense? keep reading and it will. Asta has been able to win against many powerful opponents, that is all thanks to his physical strength, hard work, and Grimoire.
Asta’s Grimoire is not normal. It is a five leaf clover, it is said that in the fifth leaf resides a demon. Demon, what do demons do? mostly demons are the creators of destruction and chaos and it could be in this case too.
When the Black Bulls when to the witch’s forest and fought diamond kingdom and eye of the midnight sun, Asta unlocked his black form. When he first tapped into this power, we saw that in his conscious, there was also the conscious of a demon. Asta had to defeat/overcome the demon in a battle of will power in order to get his black/demon form.
Considering how the Black clover has been hyped in the manga, the demon that we saw in Asta’s conscious must have much more in store than we have seen till now. I think that there will come a time when the demon will try to take over Asta again. What we saw during the Witch’s forest arc was just a trailer.
Asta’s greatest enemy in Black Clover
Asta wants to be the wizard king. For that to happen he has to be the person who can protect everyone. If the demon is Asta’s enemy then he will definitely be his greatest enemy. Fighting one’s conscience is the most difficult task. The demon’s objective would be to destroy everything in its path and Asta’s objective is to protect.
So, I think Asta’s greatest enemy will be the demon inside of him, or in other words, his own Grimoire. What do you guys think?
