It’s difficult for Black Clover fans to forget Vanessa. The mage would almost seem like a Miss Fanservice until viewers spent more time watching the show. Vanessa is less interested in impressing anyone and more interested in getting drunk and lying around the house.

She has quite a bit of mystique surrounding her, and where she’s come from. The list delves into everything about her, and her journey since joining her family in the Magic Knights. Though we don’t see her as often as some of the others, she’s an important thread in the tapestry of Yuki Tabata’s universe.`

10 FROM A CITY OF WOMEN

Vanessa is one of a handful of women from a special part of the Clover Kingdom inaccessible to most. Deep inside the forests, there exists a land of witches—all mages with their own power, left alone by the rest of the kingdom.

These women aren’t supposed to live outside the forest, and people from the outside are supposed to be forbidden.

9 FREED BY YAMI

Without realizing it, Yami entered the forest where all these powerful mages were and wound up in trouble pretty much instantly. The end result of this was Yami getting knocked into a building where Vanessa was locked up in a cage by the queen of the witches.

Yami destroyed her cage by mistake, then told Vanessa that she should live however she wanted, resulting in her following Yami and joining her in the group.

8 ALSO KNOWN AS...

Vanessa is voiced by Lydia McKay in the English dub, meaning she’s done characters like Ultear from Fairy Tail, Kyoko Honda from Fruits Basket, and Boa Hancock from One Piece.

Her Japanese voice actress is Nana Mizuki, legendary voice actress and singer who’s done more voice roles than could be listed, but includes Hinata Hyuga from Naruto, Tsubasa from Symphogear, and Moka Akashiya from Rosario + Vampire.

7 WANTS TO HELP NOELLE CONTROL HER POWERS

Noelle joins the series at the start of the anime as the second major new recruit of the guild. And while Asta doesn’t seem to have magic at all, Noelle has too much magic—she can’t control her powers because of it, and practicing to learn is looked down upon by the nobles.

However, Vanessa goes out of her way to help Noelle learn to use her magic, even helping her find a magical item that can control her powers.

6 IN LOVE WITH YAMI

It’s unsurprising considering what we know about her backstory, but Vanessa is actually in love with Yami. It’s rarely discussed, but because Yami saved her life when she was so young, she fell for the man.

When she talks about the kind of man that’s her type, she’s almost always describing a man that’s exactly like Yami.

5 A COSPLAY CONTEST

One of the funniest moments of Black Clover occurs when Vanessa gets in a cosplay contest against Charlotte Roselei. In the show’s Star Festival, there’s a moment where Vanessa and Charlotte both realize they’re vying for Captain Yami’s affections.

Though Charlotte tries to excuse herself, she winds up getting pulled into a cosplay contest against Vanessa. Charlotte chooses to dress up like a witch, but Vanessa instead goes with a nun outfit.

4 HER NAME MEANS BAR

Interestingly enough, Vanessa’s reputation as a hard-drinking mage is acknowledged early on. To begin with, her Magic Knight title is the Drunken Frenzy Witch, explaining her tendency to be drunk after her big missions.

But the other thing is that her last name, Enoteca, seems to mean “Wine Bar” in Italian.

3 HAS WON EVERY FIGHT

Something interesting about Vanessa is that so far she’s been completely undefeated in combat. She’s had six battles so far in the series, and she’s won all of them.

Having said that though, all of her matches tend to involve her working with the rest of the Black Bulls, which means she isn’t really winning battles on her own, but she doesn’t really have to. She can aid others in their battles and is far more useful in a back-up role.

2 SMALL MANA POOL

Vanessa has access to a three-leaf clover grimoire, indicating she can be pretty strong on her own, but she lags behind some of the higher-level mages. What she’s most known for is the fine control she has over her magic, rather than her mana pool, which can run out quite quickly.

Just maintaining her special magical kitten makes it difficult for her to keep her strength up, and we’ve seen her run out when she’s not being backed up by her friends.

1 MAGIC KITTEN ROUGE

The reason Vanessa was so sought after and kept in a cage by her mother was her control over her thread magic. The Witch Queen has the ability to see the future, and as a result, was able to see that Vanessa would one day develop the ability to control magic that would allow her to control fate itself.

That power resulted in the Red Thread of Fate, which is represented by an adorable little magic cat known as Rouge. Rouge can protect anyone Vanessa cares about, which is every member of the Black Bulls, making it harder for them to be defeated.
