The Witch Queen told Asta and his friends a bit about the history of the elves in Black Clover Episode 65. She stated that the elves possessed great magical abilities and were so strong that many of them were her equal in terms of magical strength (and she is very prideful; for her to admit that says a lot.)

What is really baffling me thou is when she stated that the leader of the elves was the former wielder of the Anti-Magic weapons that Asta currently uses, which subsequently blew Asta's mind and mine too!

How is it possible if people with Magic can't wield them? We know that the only reason that Asta can use those swords is because he was born without magic and hence the sword does not weaken him. However, the leader of the elves possessed strong magical powers and yet he could still wield the Anti magic weapons. Even the Wizard King admitted that only people without Magic could wield those weapons. Are there any exceptional rules to how the Anti magic weapons work?

  • She says they're the remnants of the weapons wielded by the Elf leader, and in the flashback they looked very different to Asta's ones (much shinier). It's possible that they weren't anti-magic back then, or they worked differently. – ConMan Jan 9 at 22:15
  • Yea but then they could have gotten old and dulled in appearance @ConMan I guess thats a possibility thou – Rumpelstiltskin Jan 9 at 23:50
  • Maybe through a curse seal technique. – Ch.Siva Ram Kishore Jan 10 at 3:01

    I feel like this is the kind of question where the answer is potentially "Wait until they explain it in the show/manga itself". – ConMan Jan 10 at 3:45
  • I'll have to agree with ConMan, this is something we have to wait for the official explanation, we would just be speculating. For the longest time, I assumed some sort of Kamijou Touma thing was going on with Asta. – pboss3010 Jan 10 at 13:10

Maybe they could use magic that levitates swords but the "levitation/gravity magic" doesn't "physically contact" the swords, or at least it drains the mana slower.

it would normally be impossible unless:

  1. the wielder ran out of mana.
  2. the wielder has a huge amount of mana.
  3. the wilder concentrates all of there mana away from the sword.

  • Running out of Mana is detrimental to a mage (In the black clover universe) it causes exhaustion which would make it impossible to lift those 2 heavy swords, and in extreme cases loss of consciousness. – Rumpelstiltskin yesterday
