Black Clover just closed one of its most intense arcs yet, but creator Yuki Tabata was not about to wrap the story without a few loose strings. Asta and Yuno helped defeat Lucifero after a grueling battle, but there are more devils eyeing the Clover Kingdom. And this week, fans learned the secret identity one of the devils has been using.
So if you aren’t caught up with Black Clover, you have been warned! There are massive spoilers for the manga below. Seriously, you’ve been warned.
At the end of chapter 331, Black Clover took the entire fandom by surprise when it revealed the missing Zogratis brother. The mysterious devil has been hiding for a while, and fans were confident he would appear once Lucifero was dealt with. The guess was spot-on, and it turns out Lucius Zogratis has been hiding under the name Julius Novachrono the whole time.

Yes, that is right. The current Wizard King is a front for the Time Devil, and Black Clover fans are freaking out.
The reveal was made by Tabata at the last hour, and Zogratis confirmed his identity during a meeting with his siblings. It turns out Lucius has been using the Time Devil’s powers to coordinate the timeline to his liking, so the Zogratis brothers aren’t too put out by Lucifero’s loss. After all, Julius’ identity is still a secret to the world, and his title as the Wizard King will keep the knights off his back for now. But as you can imagine, this big twist has taken netizens back in the best kind of way.
