He possesses no magical power, but he overcame his weakness by increasing his physical strength, which allowed him to join the Magic Knight Squad known as the Black Bulls after acquiring a five-leaf clover grimoire. The grimoire allows him to use Anti-Magic effectively despite his lack of mana, later honing his senses to predict an opponent's attack by sensing their qi. Asta originally used the magic-nullifying Demon Slayer Sword and the magic-siphoning Demon Dweller Sword he acquired at a dungeon, later acquiring the Demon Destroyer Sword that allows him to exorcise elf-spirits should he inflict enough damage to their host bodies using it.

Asta later learns his weapons and grimoire once belonged to Elf Race's leader Licht, the book itself revealed be have demonic origins as its creation was engineered by one demon with another sealed within it. After the Witch Queen used her magic to increase the Anti-Magic flow in Asta's body, he gained the ability to transform into Black Asta by tapping into the power of the demon within his grimoire.

While extremely powerful as a member of royalty through his use of light magic, Augustus's overconfidence that his position alone made him superior to potential opponents convinced him to not hone his skills.

Gauche was later recruited by Yami while attempting to escape prison and reach the orphanage. Though Gauche initially doesn't get along with the squad, even making attempts on Asta's life when Marie developed a crush on the youth, Gauche eventually starts to break down his walls. Following the Midnight Sun's attack on the Black Bulls' base, Patry cryptically hinting it when they first met, Gauche ends up being possessed by the Elf Droit (ドロワ, Dorowa) of the Apostles of the Sephirah before Asta exorcises the elf spirit while Droit accepted the Black Bulls to be nothing like the barbarous humans who killed him and Ecra long ago.

Licht expressed a desire for his people to co-exist with humans and befriended Lumiere while falling in love with the human's sister Tetia. After Licht and Tetia conceived a half-elf child, they married with the elves present when Tetia's family and the human royals attacked with Licht watching his wife and people massacred. After his Grimoire transformed into a Five-Leaf Clover Grimoire, Licht struggles to keep the demon from possessing him before using the magic stones to turn himself into a mindless monster to prevent his possession. Lumiere is then forced to kill his friend to stop his rampage after extracting the elf's mana, Licht reduced to a skeleton littering the area Hage Village would be built on while being demonized by the Clover Kingdom's stories of the event. While Patolli assumed Licht's identity after reincarnated into the body of William Vangeance five centuries later, he has Sally create an artificial body for Licht's soul to inhabit once all the Elves have been fully revived. Once revived, while indifferent to Asta possessing his grimoire and swords, Licht takes back the Demon-Dweller Sword and accompanies Rhya to Clover Castle where he proceeds to fight the demon with Yami and Charla. Once the demon is defeated and the elf souls are allowed to pass on, Licht decides to join his people in the afterlife while his artificial body is used by Rades to keep Patolli among the living.
