Demon Dweller Sword Facts and Where to Get Your Own Replica
What’s in this article?
The Black Clover anime and manga feature tons of swords, but few come close to the sheer size of the Demon Dweller sword. While Yami wields a lightweight katana, just like One Piece’s Zoro, Asta carries around the series’ Berserk inspired swords whose magic powers allow them to counter the magic produced by enemies.
Asta relies on it in key fights where he serves the Clover Kingdom as a member of the Black Bulls. While the anime adaptation of the Black Clover manga is yet to be completed, the sword’s central role in Asta’s story means that it’s revealed lore tidbits that clue us in on the true nature of anti magic swords.
Quick Facts About the Demon Dweller Sword
All of Asta’s anti magic swords are summoned from his Five Leaf Grimoire. Though little is known about Asta’s grimoire, what’s clear is that his magic comes from the anti magic devil that resides in it. Asta’s devil has supplied him with three swords so far, each more powerful than the last.
1. It’s an Ancient Anti Magic Weapon
The Demon Dweller sword is Asta’s second sword and is an anti magic weapon. Asta is one of the only known people capable of wielding it because he was born without magic, an anomaly that’s no doubt fascinating for the magic-obsessed Wizard King.
Anti magic weapons are summoned using grimoires where they are stored in the form of writing. This implies that the weapons are spells and/or magical constructs rather than real weapons. What’s especially telling is that they can only cut through mana and its magical derivatives, dealing only blunt force damage when used against non-magic targets.
2. It Has Two Other Sister Swords
Though most mages in the Black Clover universe stick to just one weapon, Asta is capable of summoning new swords each time he grows stronger. Basically, the more swords Asta has, the more powerful he is. Because of this, Demon Dweller has two other sister swords.
The Demon Slayer sword is Asta’s first sword and borrows its looks and name from a sword in the Berserk manga. This sword is capable of cutting through magic but also of removing mental enchantments as demonstrated when Astra lifted a charm cast on a comrade by tapping their head with his sword.
Asta’s third sword, the Demon Destroyer sword, is currently his most powerful one as it is able to disrupt reincarnation magic. Its causality break ability allows it to destroy the causal relationship between a spell, space, and time, preventing people from reincarnating into elves.
3. It Can Absorb Magic
The Demon Dweller sword is capable of absorbing magical energy from other magic users before releasing it as a blast of energy. Asta demonstrates this when he uses the Demon Dweller sword to sap up Noelle’s mana and release it as a magical slash.
When the sword fires slashes without using another person’s magic, it will instead release anti magic energy.
Get Your Very Own Demon Dweller Sword
Asta’s Demon Dweller sword may only have magical abilities in the fictional world of Black Clover, but its real life replica lets you bring some of that magic into the real world. This sword is designed mainly for display and as a prop, so while it may look menacing, it’s best mounted on a wall or coupled with an Asta outfit.
This sword is made of high density foam, making it extremely lightweight despite its size. The sword’s blade is polished to look like faded steel and features a clover-like crossguard.
- Material: High density foam
- Length: 80 cm
The Demon Dweller sword is a favorite in the Black Clover fandom thanks in no small part to its abilities and cool design. While you can’t get one that can actually cut through magic bonds in real life, Demon Dweller sword replicas can still look magical in your Asta cosplay.
