* ADayInTheLimelight: In the anime, Kyoko receives the most character development among all the Apostles of the Stars, featuring several scenes about her lonely life with her parents abroad and her relationship with her JapaneseDelinquent friends and her beloved Train. However, while it leads to a HighHeelFaceTurn as expected, it receives no conclusion at the finale, leaving the entire affair to feel meaningless.



* AnimalMotifs (Oh, have a ''guess''. Here's a hint: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin It's right there in the title of the series]].)

* {{Anticlimax}}: In the manga, Train getting turned into a kid via nanomachines is a serious issue, requiring him to visit Eve's creator to figure out how to reverse it. In the anime, Tearju is missing from the series until the anime's GeckoEnding, so Train just...gets better. Somehow.

* AtopAMountainOfCorpses: The lite version. Janus defends Rinslet from a group of 30+ mobsters and is shown afterward sitting on a pile of their mostly unconscious bodies. (A couple are still groaning.)

* FailedASpotCheck: Woodney, the guy who claims to be Number 13, the Black Cat. He speaks with Train, the ''actual'' former Number XIII, multiple times and doesn't notice the fact that Train openly carries a black gun with "XIII" on its barrel and has the same Roman numeral tattooed on his collarbone, always revealed by his loose collar. Sven [[LampshadeHanging even notes]] that Woodley is completely oblivious as to whom he's speaking to.

** Chrono Number II, Berzé, is spotted by Train in a crowd ahead and flash steps behind the group to speak to them.
** Number VII, Janus Hazard, flash steps behind Rinslet while introducing himself.

* GeckoEnding: A very bizarre case, as the anime actually does get to the end of the manga, and then suddenly a new arc comes out of nowhere with only one very minor piece of foreshadowing ([[spoiler: Rinslet finding a CD with the word "Eden" printed on it,]]) to keep it from being a complete AssPull.

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Most hair colors in Black Cat are fine, as it's set explicitly not in Japan. Leon's and Jenos's dark green is probably just stylized black and Echinda was blonde before her Tao mutation, but Sven's green and Rinslet's purple just deny explanation.

Added DiffLines:

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: A lot of the non-Japanese names in this manga sounds quite funny. But "Tearju Lunatique" takes the cake, as it seems the author just made up a name that sounds "foreign" despite it being rather ridiculous and doesn't have any meaning.

* CaptainErsatz: Many characters appear to have been borrowed wholesale from other manga. Train is a lot like [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Himura Kenshin]], [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike Spiegel]], and [[{{Trigun}} Vash]]... ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' seems to be the most obvious one: Creed is a bit like Vicious, Jet is like Sven, Faye is similar to Rinslet...

** In the original pitch of the series, Sven had a beard, which was degraded into (still BadAss) PermaStubble.

* TookALevelInBadass: Eve is a textbook example of how to do this the right way through character development. At the start of the series her shapeshifting powers are largely undeveloped and limited to turning her hands into blades, and Eve herself is an emotionless {{tykebomb}} taking orders from a scumbag weapons merchant. By the end of the manga she's [[TakingTheBullet taken a bullet]] and [[NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow lived to tell about it]], used {{Heroic Resolve}} on at least one occasion, [[ThrowingDowntheGauntlet thrown down a gauntlet or two]], and her developing imagination has shown her dozens of other ways to use her powers. She ends the series as the strongest of the main heroes aside from Train (...maybe) and arguably the most {{badass}}.

* MoodWhiplash: Anime only but seeing Train go from a brooding, BadassLongcoat to a BadassAdorable IdiotHero at the span of one episode can be quite jarring.

* AnachronismStew: The setting the series takes place in has a bizarre mix of different time period tastes despite being located on Earth. People wear either modern or classic clothing, conventional modern and futuristic technology is shown, the locations' architectures overlap in-between early 20th Century to present day, 1950s-style cars are being driven, and '''steam locomotives''' are being used.
