The manga series Black clover has introduced various characters and different unique aspects of magic over the years. Yami Sukehiro is one such character with his unique “dark magic”. With that in mind, is Yami a Devil Host? Yami Sukehiro is one of the most important characters apart from Asta in the Black Clover franchise. He was introduced into the manga and anime adaptation as the captain for the Black Bulls in the Clover Kingdom.
Before becoming a captain, Yami was a member of the Grey Deer squad, formerly known as Aqua Deer, and was brought in by the acting Wizard King Julius Novachrono. Yami is one of the strongest captains in the series and might also come up on the top in the whole magic world. Apart from the manga, we have Yami in the anime series as well, where Junichi Suwabe gives his voice to the character.
Yami is just a man who every girl ships for. He’s a tall, muscular man with black hair and grey eyes. His hairstyle is quite messy and combed backward, making it look like it’s sticking outside. Along with this, he also has a stubble mustache and beard, making him look even more badass.
Yami has quite a simple wardrobe with only a white T-shirt and brown trousers. As the captain, he adds his outfit with his Black Bull squad banner with the squad’s insignia on it. The banner is placed over his right shoulder and is held by two strings that connect on the left shoulder.
Powers & Abilities
Having his motto of surpassing his limits, Yami has bagged a lot of skills to his name. His dark magic is one of the rarest forms in the entire Black Clover universe. With this magic, Yami can generate and manipulate darkness, which he mostly uses to enhance his Katana. One of the advantages of having such unique magic is that it can absorb any other elements such as light magic and send it to nothingness.
The rarity of this element also affects other world magic, for example, the devil magic. This made Yami ranked in the Arcane stage, alongside William Vangence’s World Tree Magic, Asta’s Anti Magic, and Julius Novachrono’s Time magic.
Apart from his magic abilities, Yami is also arguably the strongest swordsman in the Clover Kingdom. Describing himself as a Magic Swordsman, Yami was easily able to take down elf Patri, who was the leader of the Eye of the Midnight Sun. He defeated him with his sword covered in Darkness. Yami has also mastered the art of Ki, which has made him such a better fighter. Ki was a technique that originated in his homeland. With this technique, a person is able to tap into their sixth sense and is able to sense incoming surprise attacks.
After the elf arc and during the preparation of the Devils arc, we saw Yami learn the overpowering Mana method. Under Mereoleona Vermillion, Yami trained under extreme conditions to master the Mana zone. With the mana zone, Yami can manipulate the mana energy in the particular radius around him, which helps him increase the effectiveness of his spell.
Is Yami Sukehiro A Devil Host?
The story until now has revealed that Yami Sukehiro still possesses dark magic. In manga Chapter 323, we witnessed Yami moments before jumping into action against Lucifero. During this time, Yami’s torn body was getting healed by Vanessa and Grey. While healing him, we hear Grey revealing that there is something different inside Yami’s body and that it resembles the devil that possesses Asta.
With that being said, there is the possibility that Yami could have come under a Devil union during the Tree of Qliphoth ritual. So there is a high chance that we will get a Yami devil union mood in the future manga chapters. One thing is for that Yami, after the devil ritual, has gained a huge buff as he was able to block Lucifero’s punch easily. Let us reminds you that Yami before had to rely on Asta to finish Dante, who had only 80% of Lucifero’s fragmented powers. Now he can easily block the actual devil king’s punch, which according to Yuno, “a single hit can end their life”.
