Go forth! Walk the flowery path to our triumph...!

— To Magna Swing and Sol Marron in Coral Peacock's Vice-Captain

Kirsch Vermillion 「キルシュ・ヴァーミリオン Kirushu Vāmirion[1] is a nobleman of Clover Kingdom's House Vermillion,[2] a 1st Class Senior Magic Knight and vice-captain of the Coral Peacock squad,[3][4] and a member of the Royal Knights squad.[5]


Kirsch is a young man dressed as a soldier. He has long side-parted hair that is tied back with a braid going across his hairline and a thin band around his head. He has two dark hanging earrings and sports the Coral Peacock vest.

After the Royal Knights Selection Exam, Kirsch cuts his hair short to reflect his changed outlook.[6]


Kirsch refuses Asta

Kirsch is disgusted by Asta's compliments.

Kirsh is very dramatic and vain, promoting his looks with every chance he gets. His obsession with beauty does not end with his own face; he finds Asta's body ugly for having muscles because he feels that beauty is leaving one's body in its natural state.[7] Like other nobles, Kirsch looks down on those of lower birth.[8] When Asta greets him casually, his demeanor turns grim and he is visually disgusted that someone of a lower status is addressing him so informally.[9]

Despite his megalomaniac behavior, Kirsch is an excellent leader worthy of being the vice-captain of Coral Peacock, for which he does most of the work instead of his sleeping captain.[3] When Magna and Sol are countered during the exam, Kirsch is quick to appear next to them and help them adjust their attacks for more optimal results.[10][11]


Kirsh was born into House Vermillion, and sometime later, his younger sister Mimosa Vermillion was born.[2] When they are children, Kirsch and Mimosa are taken by their parents to hover over a small village. They see a young girl steal a loaf of bread, and Kirsch tells his sister that the poor are filthy and will remain sullied.[12]

After becoming a Magic Knight, Kirsch is promoted to vice-captain of the Coral Peacock squad.[3]

Kirsch creeps out his team

Kirsch creeps out Magna and Sol.

For the Royal Knights Selection Exam, Kirsch is placed on Team C with Magna Swing and Sol Marron.[13] He later complains that neither is from a noble family and tells them not to taint his beauty.[14] He continues to criticize and creep out his teammates, before greeting his sister. Asta then greets Kirsch, who is disgusted by such informality and deeply criticizes the boy. Kirsch is delighted when Mimosa cheers for his team to win, but is surprised when she adds that it so her team can beat his.[15]

As the second match begins, Kirsch encourages his teammates to let their beauty shine. Magna and Sol charge across the battlefield and Kirsch sends clones to critique their fighting styles, suggesting that Magna should analyze his opponents and make use of both close- and long-range attacks and that Sol should make five smaller golems and use them more creatively.[16] Kirsch stays behind to protect their crystal, and when one of the opponents attacks it, Kirsch dissolves the spell and reveals that he has covered the battlefield with cherry blossoms. He then creates two protective tunnels leading to the opponents' crystal for Magna and Sol, who destroy the crystal as Kirsch cheers. The match ends with Team C making a dramatic pose.[17]

After the match, Kirsch asks the other Magic Knights how beautiful his fight was, but insults Asta when the boy compliments him. Kirsch then says that in their next match, he will crush Asta like the cracked bowl he is. Asta counters that a cracked bowl lasts longer, but Kirsch points out that only a poor person would continue to use a cracked bowl.[18]

Kirsch is later impressed by Langris Vaude's Spatial Magic, saying that it is to be expected from House Vaude.[19]

After the battlefield is changed for the second round, Kirsch claims that his beauty will not change and that he will beautifully defeat the filthy, to which Mimosa objects, claiming that Asta is not filthy.[20] To begin his second match, Kirsch declares that he will save Mimosa who has become tainted by the commoners, and covers the battlefield with cherry blossoms and creates multiple clones.[21] However, Asta dispels all of the Cherry Blossom Magic with Black Hurricane, which disgusts Kirsch.[22]

Kirsch complains about his magic being tainted, but Magna points that he anticipated Asta's improved Anti Magic and that Kirsch should not underestimate commoners, like Magna himself. Kirsch is surprised to learn Magna is a commoner and refuses to work with him. He heads out on his own and orders Magna and Sol to guard the crystal.[23]

Asta sword presses Kirsch

Asta traps Kirsch with a sword press.

As he flies away, Kirsch senses the locations of Mimosa and Zora Ideale and is frustrated that Asta is hidden from him. Asta then yells at him, drawing his attention, and Kirsch attacks the boy, who struggles to defend against the swarm of cherry blossoms. When Asta escapes, Kirsch chases him into a cave but stops short because he can sense magic. He creates three clones which trigger the landmine traps. With the traps gone, Kirsch approaches Asta but falls into a normal pitfall. Kirsch prepares to fly out when Asta appears overhead. The noble tries to defend with magic, but Asta's crossed swords nullify it and slam him into the ground,[24] knocking him unconscious.

Kirsch is left in the pitfall with Asta's Demon-Slayer Sword laying across him. Not to underestimate the royal, Zora leaves a trap beside the pitfall and then collapses the cave's entrance.[25] After digging her way into the back of the cave, Sol frees Kirsch and slaps him awake. He accuses her of messing up his face, which she denies. He brings up his disgust with her being a commoner, but she reminds him that the Magic Emperor told everyone to overcome their differences, and asks if he could put aside his selfishness.[26]

Kirsch bursts through the rubble and confronts Asta, interrupting the boy's fight with Magna.[27] When Asta focuses on him, Kirsch flies higher in the air to keep the boy from reaching him, and unleashes his full power, planning to defeat Asta and destroy the crystal. When Kirsch draws his fan back, his arm is caught in a binding trap that Zora set. Asta takes the momentary distraction to leap up to Kirsch and swing his sword up into Kirsch's chin, knocking out the vice-captain again.[28]

After Team B wins and Kirsch wakes up, Zora critiques Team C, pointing out that Kirsch's arrogance and loss of composure made him unsightly. Comforting her distraught brother, Mimosa tells him that his recognition of the power of commoners and his determination to continue fighting after being dirtied are the most beautiful he has ever been. Kirsch agrees that the match was indeed beautiful.[29]

Magna and other Knights support Asta

Kirsch and other Knights arrive to support Asta.

As Asta collapses from exhaustion after defeating Langris, Magna catches him while Kirsch and many other Knights take to the field in support of Asta.[30]

Several days after the exam, Kirsch and the others selected to be Royal Knights all assemble in the Royal Capital and are placed under the command of Mereoleona Vermillion.[31][32] After the squad travels to the Gravito Rock Zone, Mereoleona explains the situation and divides the squad into teams. Luck Voltia infiltrates the dungeon with Kirsch, Noelle Silva, and Ben Benfunk.[33] As they make their way deeper, Kirsch is flooding the tunnels with his cherry blossoms.[34]

Kirsch and Noelle are shocked when Luck and Ben begin glowing.[35] Kirsch marvels at the beautiful change in their magic power but realizes it feels like Langris'. When Luck's sudden attack on Noelle misses, Kirsch raises cover with his cherry blossoms and orders Noelle to cast Nest of the Sea Dragon. However, Luck crashes through the shield and ricochets around the hall, knocking Kirsch and Noelle to the floor.[36]

Kirsch and Noelle manage to escape, with only Kirsch getting heavily injured. Noelle carries them in Cradle of the Sea Dragon and they reunite with the remaining Royal Knights on the shore below the dungeon. Kirsch joins the other injured Knights in Eilia's Booth while the group listens to a message about the chaos in the kingdom. After the group decides to save their fellow Knights, they depart, chasing after the dungeon.[37] The Royal Knights reach Clover Castle just ahead of the dungeon.[38]
