Not to be confused with the same-named Creator/MarvelComics character. Or the horror movie ''Film/TheBlackCat''. Nope, not even Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's poem.

** Despite the one-sided nature of their relationship, Train and Kyoko get a lot of it. He doesn't reject openly her mad affections as usual in the VillainessesWantHeroes trope, being just uncomfortable with her allegiance to the Apostles of the Stars, and calmly accepts her as an ally when she drops it (he even takes a bullet meant for her, and in the manga he states outright he wishes to protect her). Later in the manga, when Train is confronted by two doppelgangers of people he cares about in the Doctor's warp world, one of them is Saya and the other is Kyoko of all people. Finally, the anime shows them sharing a scene in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, where he seems to have moved to the same city as her (although in said scene, characteristically, she just finds one of Train's stray cats while unaware that he is walking away behind her back).

** Rinsley gets some with Sven in the anime's opening, where she turns angry at him for flirting with a woman in the classic {{Tsundere}} way. This is a marked contrast to the anime itself, where she only gets tease with Jenos and even ends up dating him, and to the manga, where she has a brief crush with ''Train''.

* 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.

** Eve, Kyouko, and Train get [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of themselves in ''Manga/ToLoveRu''.
*** Understandable, of course, because the two have the same artist, and an assistant on ''Black Cat'' is the writer for ''To-Love-Ru''.

* HighHeelFaceTurn: Kyoko leaves the Apostles of the Stars with Charden after falling in love with Train (at least in the anime; in the manga, she falls in love with him ''after'' leaving them).



* ShipTease: Train and Kyoko, mostly because he doesn't reject overtly her mad affections as usual in the VillainessesWantHeroes trope and because they share a scene in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue (although in said scene, she just finds one of Train's cats while unaware than the latter is walking away behind her back). He is shown to be mostly uninterested in her, though.

* {{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.

* 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.

* 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.

''Anime/CowboyBebop'' seems to be the most obvious one: Creed is a bit like Vicious, Jet is like Sven, Faye is similar to Rinslet...
