Black☆Star Part in the Story-The New Student and Soul Observation

There is constant talk concerning Shinigami's son, Death the Kid's enrolment in Shibusen. Black Star, being the person that he is, is angered that there is someone who is talked about more than he is. He then proceeds to go outside and wait for Kid to appear, along with Soul. Kid, however, is three hours late, as he had spent the entire morning making certain that everything is perfectly symmetrical before his departure. Black Star grows even more impatient at his late appearance. When Kid finally does arrive, he immediately begins to admire the supreme symmetry of the school building; however, he is quickly devastated when Black Star ruins the symmetry by standing on and breaking ones of the spikes protruding out the main skull structure of the entrance. This greatly angers Kid and he prepares to do battle with Black Star, who ends up dragging an unwilling Soul into the fight.

During battle, Kid uses his partners, Liz and Patti with great dexterity and handles both Soul and Black Star with extreme ease. When Black Star expresses his frustration at Kid's long-range attacks, Kid decides to switch to close-range hand-to-hand combat, proving that he surpasses even Black Star in martial arts. The fight soon attracts the attention of the students inside the school; leading to Maka, Tsubaki and Stein having to go outside to watch the fight. Asking Maka to see if Death the Kid is Resonating with Liz and Patti, Maka sees that despite it being difficult to wield two Weapons, the three look up to each other, and thus achieve a perfect balance in Soul Wavelengths. On the other hand, Black Star and Soul's efforts to defeat Kid are futile against him

Black Star and Soul decide to attempt to actually work together as a Weapon and Meister pairing. However, their Wavelengths do not match at all, and Black Star cannot lift Soul in Weapon form. Frustrated, he sends his own Wavelength into Soul, which harms the Demon Weapon. In a 'emotional' moment, Soul decides to break up with Black Star as partners, but Black Star declares that they are still best friends. The two friends hug, but their moment is interrupted as Kid - not being able to resist - shoots the two in the head.

With new resolve, the two go against Death the Kid again. They almost manage to hit him, with Black Star managing to feint a kick and then grab Kid's leg to pin him down, which gives Soul an opportunity to slam into him in Weapon form. However, Kid still manages to dodge, and counter-attack the two. He then proceeds to use Death Cannon. Despite the situation looking grim, Black Star boasts that nothing will defeat him. Obviously, Kid's Death Cannon finishes both of them off.

Kid, surprisingly, loses consciousness too for seemingly unknown reasons. It is then revealed by Maka that, when Soul attempted to slash at Kid, he cut some of Kid’s bangs, with Kid not noticing his broken symmetry until after the explosion. Soul and Black Star both agree that this was their 'win from behind.'

Tsubaki then goes to Black Star and asks if he is alright, though, his only concern is if she saw him and how well he did. Black Star is later seen when Shinigami comes to take home.

Black☆Star Part in the Story-Remedial Lesson

Black Star and Tsubaki try to sneak up on Soul and Maka as they enter the Death Room after all four of them had been called there by Shinigami. However, his loud voice gives him away again, to Tsubaki's dismay.

The four meet up with Shinigami, who tells them that he is giving them extra lessons, much to the protest of Maka and Soul, since they all have collected no souls at all recently. Black Star does not seem to mind this much, laughing cheerfully. Shinigami thus gives them a mission in order to defeat Sid Barett, their missing former teacher who was rumoured to have died and come back as a zombie terrorising the other students (apparently the rumour is true) and trying to get them to experience the freedom from the fear of dying. He also says that there is also the person who turned Sid into a zombie to consider. Black Star eagerly accepts the mission. Shinigami then adds that if they fail this mission, they will be expelled.

Everyone else is distraught about the threat of being expelled apart from Black Star, whom Tsubaki tries to get to take the mission seriously. The four decide to go to Hook Cemetery, where Sid's grave is. Black Star however, does not take anything seriously, and jokingly suggests that they urinate on Sid's grave, which Soul heartily agrees to.

However, at that moment, Sid attacks Maka, but Soul manages to save her before she is harmed. Sid picks up his gravestone and begins using it as a weapon. He proves to be a formidable opponent, and Black Star ends up having to defend Maka at some points, and soon ends up taking a hard blow from Sid's Living End attack. Angered that he has been hit, Black Star manages to retaliate with a kick to Sid's solar plexus, which causes the teacher to be impressed at his skills.

Maka and Soul tries to engage in a Soul Resonance and use Witch-Hunt Slash on Sid, but end up failing and almost hit Black Star instead. As they try to hit Sid, the zombie buries itself underground, appearing only to attack and disappear again. Realizing that Sid is following the Way of the Assassination, Black Star deems that there can only be one assassin on the field: himself. He manages to use Trap☆Star to catch Sid, but ends up catching Maka and Soul in the process.

The four then interrogate Sid as to who turned him into a zombie, and on his whereabouts. Black Star manages to coax Sid into saying that it was Franken Stein that had turned him into a zombie by flipping Tsubaki's skirt. Soul, determined not to lose, flips Maka's skirt as well, which amusingly provokes no reaction from Sid. Maka uses Maka Chop on the boys and Sid, which manages to have Sid tell him that Stein is in Patchwork lab, a place on the outskirts of Death City.

The students, with Tsubaki holding Sid captive, go to the laboratory, and meet with Stein, who makes a rather bizarre entrance by falling out of the building on his chair. However, he proves to be an amazing fighter, being able to use Soul Perception in order to analyse his opponents beforehand, and he takes out Black Star easily whilst still seated on his chair. Maka and Soul proceed to attack, but Stein manages to disarm Maka and prepares to start dissecting her. However, Black Star manages to get him to let go by using his Certain Kill: Black☆Star Big Wave. But he is surprised as the attack does no effect to him. Stein explains that as he had seen Black Star's soul and Soul Wavelength, he had been able to change his own Wavelength to match Black Star's, therefore Resonating with him and making Blakc Star's Wavelength attack useless. He then attacks Black Star with his own Wavelength, which causes him to lose consciousness in a pool of blood.

His friends deem him to be dead, and Soul and Maka, the latter regaining her courage to fight Stein, manage to engage in a successful Witch-Hunt Slash. However, Stein still manages to defeat them. When it appears all is lost, Stein and Sid reveal that all of this is just a part of the extra lesson planned by Shinigami. Soul protests that he had still killed Black Star, but the Meister then regains consciousness.

The next day, the four students are in class, when Stein, much to Soul and Maka's shock, appears and tells them that he is now their new teacher. Black Star merely makes a grumpy remark that Stein is standing out more than him.

Black☆Star Part in the Story-Prologue

Black Star defeats Mifune in their first match.

Black Star first appears with Tsubaki on a mission to take down Alcapone and his men. Although Tsubaki reminds him of the Way of Assassination, Black Star ends up giving himself away by making a big entrance right in the middle of the villains' banquet, using Tsubaki in Weapon form like a microphone, much to the Weapon's chagrin. Alcapone's men do not hesitate to attack them, and the two are forced to retreat using Tsubaki's Smoke bomb Mode.

Tsubaki is saddened by their failure, saying that they had not been able to acquire a single soul as of yet, but Black Star remains ecstatic, claiming that he was as 'big as usual' and made a great stage performance. The two contact Shinigami and Tsubaki tells them of their failed mission. Shinigami wonders on why they are failing so much even when they are quite skilled. Black Star interrupts and promises to turn Tsubaki into a Death Scythe, and offers him his autograph as a current substitute, which earns him a chop to the head by Shinigami.

Shinigami then tells them that although he would like to watch over them all the time, things have become problematic recently because Alcapone and his men have begun to go after a Witch Soul of the Witch Angela Leon. He also tells them that Angela has an incredibly strong bodyguard called Mifune and that his soul is more powerful than the average human's. His soul alone will count as ninety-nine souls. Realizing that Mifune's soul and Angela's Witch Soul would immediately turn Tsubaki into a Death Scythe, Black Star eagerly dashes off to face Mifune, with Tsubaki following behind, not waiting to listen to the rest of what Shinigami has to say about Angela.

Tsubaki however, stops Black Star and tells him that in their current state, it would be impossible to defeat Mifune and Angela. They would need to go through this mission properly. Angered by her criticism, Black Star attempts to prove to Tsubaki that he can easily follow the Way of Assassination, by sneaking up on Tsubaki whilst she is bathing at a waterfall. He manages to do it at first, but then ends up screaming when he sees her naked body, which causes an angry Tsubaki to throw a shuriken at him.

As the two make their way to Magic Castle Cinder where Angela and Mifune reside, Tsubaki asks Black Star if he has a plan. He confidently replies that the first thing he will do is make a big entrance, much to Tsubaki's despair. However, Black Star then swears to Tsubaki that he will make her into a Death Scythe, and she smiles and says that she knows he will.

However, as they reach the castle, they see Alcapone's men killed, and they are attacked by Mifune. Mifune asks them if they are after Angela. Black Star introduces himself to Mifune and declares a duel with him as he thinks he is quite strong. Mifune gives the two a chance to leave, but Black Star orders Tsubaki to change into Chain Scythe Mode. Noticing that Black Star is a person from Shibusen, Mifune prepares to attack, engaging in his Infinite One-Sword Style.

Mifune quickly proves to be more than a match for Black Star, as the Meister struggles against his swordsmanship. Mifune says so to Black Star, that his Weapon is the only thing protecting him, and that no matter how potent a Weapon is, if its Meister is not competent, it will be useless. He gives one last chance for Black Star to leave, saying that he does not like to kill a child. However, Black Star, angered at Mifune for calling him a child, proceeds to attack Mifune by throwing Tsubaki at him in Shuriken Mode, followed by Smoke bomb Mode, and then attempts to cut Mifune under cover of the smoke by grabbing one of his katanas. However, his loud voice gives him away, and Mifune strikes him down.

Tsubaki watches on, horrified, thinking Black Star is dead. However, the Meister gets up, and yells at Mifune for hitting him with the back of his blade, saying that only he can do those kind of moves. Mifune instead says he feels sorry for Tsubaki, as she has to put up with him. He calls Black Star a 'small kid.' However, Tsubaki defends Black Star, saying that he can succeed if he tries, despite being a bit of an idiot at times. Black Star, now furious at Mifune, accuses him for trying to stand out more than him, and declares that the main role will always be himself. Deciding to take the fight seriously, he successfully follows the Way of Assassination. By covering himself with Tsubaki's Smoke Bomb Mode, he uses Tsubaki's Dummy Star Mode to distract Mifune, before taking down Mifune with one hit using his Certain Kill: Black☆Star Big Wave. As Mifune is defeated, Black Star states that it obvious he lost to someone as great as him.

He proceeds to interrogate Mifune on the whereabouts of Angela. Mifune refuses to say anything and Black Star is about to lose his patience when Angela herself arrives and begs the two to spare Mifune. Black Star is startled as Angela is only a small child, and that Mifune is defending her until she can fend for herself. Mifune tells Black Star that he can take his soul, but he would fight to the death for Angela. In the end, Black Star does not kill the two, repeating Mifune's words as he leaves, that he would not like to kill a child.

Back at the DWMA, Black Star gives all of Alcapone and his mens' souls to Shinigami, who asks him why he is not taking them when the going is good. Black Star declares that someone as great as him has no need to take credit for someone else's work. He asks for Tsubaki's opinion and she happily agrees.

Later however, Black Star is back to his old tricks again, peeping on Tsubaki in the school baths, which earns him a shuriken thrown into his head.

Soul Eater Black☆Star Abilities

Black Star using Soul Resonance with Tsubaki along with the Uncanny Sword.

Physical Fitness: Black Star is noted to be the fastest Shibusen student (with the possible exception of Kid, who purposely did not perform as well has he could so that he could get a perfect 8 seconds time), surpassing Kirikou. His agility and speed are almost to an incredible level, as he can run 100 metres in less than six seconds, jump from tree to tree, and dodge multiple attacks with ease. Aside from his speed, Black Star is also incredibly strong and has great stamina, being able to endure punishing physical workouts such as five hundred one-handed press ups. Tsubaki also comments that he never gets ill. His strength and speed cause him to be a force to be reckoned with even without Tsubaki present. His instincts in combat are so acute, that things like switching stances and attacking and defending are completely natural. Sid even goes as far to say that Black Star is a 'heaven-sent warrior.' His endurance is also great, as he can keep on fighting without a drop in form despite suffering from serious injuries and wounds and continuing fights with powerful enemies despite great amounts of blood loss. His physical prowess grow even more as the series progresses. Even Stein, the strongest person to ever graduate from Shibusen, has a hard time when sparring with Black Star, commenting that Black Star is close to outdoing him in terms of physical combat. As well as martial arts, Black Star is adept at wielding Tsubaki's Weapon forms with great efficiency, and is flexible in battle, switching to different Weapon forms for different styles of combat. He is also regarded as the strongest attacker out of his team, consisting of Maka and Kid.

Strong Wavelength: Black Star is a practitioner of Soul Menace — an attack that Stein also uses. By resonating with one's own soul, one can drive their own Soul Wavelength directly into an opponent's body through a physical strike on them. Only people who have a strong Wavelength and the ability to manipulate one's own Wavelength, can use this move, and Black Star has both qualities. Although Black Star is not as proficient in using it like Stein, he has managed to create two of his own variations of Soul Menace: Planet Destruction Cannon and Certain Kill: Black☆Star Big Wave. Stein once gives Black Star a pot of Soul Absorption Liquid, which drains his Wavelength at one touch, in order to make his Wavelength stronger. At first, Black Star can barely put his hand in it, but, when asked about it later on in the series, he replies that he became annoyed and drank it all. According to Stein, not even an average adult Meister would have lived if he or she did that. His Soul Menace attacks get so strong, that even Stein cannot negate his Wavelength. His soul itself is stronger than average, and like his body, can take a lot of punishment. This is even farther alluded in that his soul as shown in resonance with Tsubaki early in the series is only slightly smaller than Maka's soul in resonance with Soul as a Death Scythe a good 50 chapters later. His Soul Wavelength is also powerful enough to blow away madness from the surrounding area.

Ninja Abilities: Black Star is originally an assassin, specializing in ninja tactics and stealth, but his arrogance often leads him to reveal his whereabouts, defeating the purpose his role as assassin. The few times he uses his ninja stealth is when he peeps on Tsubaki (which normally ends up with him yelling and showing his whereabouts upon seeing Tsubaki's nude body) when she is bathing, or when he finally takes the fight seriously. When he does use his ninja arts though, he is deadly, being able to erase every trace of his existence from the enemy's eyes, and striking them before they notice him. Likely due to his lack of a sixth sense — Soul Perception — Black Star has developed his natural five senses, most notably his sense of hearing, and has quick reflexes. He is able to recognize unstable footsteps from Crona and is able to hear the conversation between Sid and Nygus when they ware talking about Stein's arrival. His strong soul and his lack of a sixth sense in turn makes him stronger against insanity as he cannot sense it as well as others.

Shadow Weapon: After Tsubaki absorbed her brother's soul, Black Star gains access to the Uncanny Sword. At first, the sheer power of the sword is far too high for Black Star to handle. However, through practice and making peace with the entity within the sword, Black Star gains access to its remarkable power. He demonstrates his new power in the face off against Mifune in their last battle. During the battle, Black Star uses the sword, granting him unprecedented power and speed, new powerful Weapon forms and the ability to use his own shadows as Weapons.

Madness: Black Star later acquires the ability to change his Wavelength to one of madness. This ability, loosely translated as 'Madness Release' (発狂 Hakkyou) increases his power, giving him almost superhuman strength, as he is able to lift up the Cyclops with one hand. His power over the Uncanny Sword also increases. In this form, his usual white and blue Spartoi uniform and scarf changes to black, his bandages are bisected with black lines and his pupils turn into large stars up until they almost completely block out the irises. Although this ability grants him great power, even he has the possibility of slipping into insanity if he uses it for too long, unless he forms a Chain Resonance with someone like Maka, who can use her courage and Anti-Demon Wavelength in order to act as a support to Black Star's sanity.

Soul Eater Black☆Star History

Black Star's Soul

Black Star comes from a long line of assassins known as the Star Clan (星族 Hoshizoku). The clan was known as a group of ninjas who did anything for money. They victimized people in many areas, killing many innocent people, which made them infamous in various places. Due to their actions, the entire clan was exterminated by Shibusen thirteen years prior to the series. Black Star, who was still an infant at the time, was taken in by Shibusen, where he was raised by Sid Barett. He showed skill and talent in his abilities from a very young age, but was still ostracised by many, blaming him for everything that the Star Clan had done in the past. He and Maka apparently knew each other from childhood, and there is a possibility that they were friends from a young age, since in a flashback, Maka thought that Black Star was 'cool' and did not bear any malice over his heritage. Black Star bears no malice over the loss of his clan, because he understands that his parents led a wretched life and eventually paid the price for it.

Due to his ego, many people ignored him, and he constantly failed to collect any souls of Evil humans. On the day of the Shibusen entrance ceremony, he stood on top of the DWMA and declared his greatness to the new students below. At first, it seemed as if everyone ignored him and left, but then Black Star found Tsubaki applauding. Impressed that someone had noticed his greatness for the first time, the two introduced each other, and after finding out that Tsubaki was a Demon Weapon, they became partners.

Soul Eater Black☆Star Appearance

Black Star is a young boy of Japanese descent and is twelve to thirteen years of age. He has bright blue spiky hair, with the spikes sticking in out in the manner of a star-shape. He is rather short, not that much taller than Maka, but has a well-muscled build due to constant training. His eyes are green and when under the effects of madness, his eyes adopt star shaped pupils, which is seemingly a distinct trait of those belonging to the Clan of the Star. His main outfit is a sleeveless black shirt with a funnel-like collar, with white trousers that are black from the knee down and just a little short of being full length jeans. On the front of his collar, two short strips of grey material adorned with rivets stretch down fro, the top of the collar to the breast of his shirt. Black Star has similar strips wrapped around his neck in the form of a scarf, and around his waist in the form of a belt. Rivets can also be seen on his pockets and on the ends of his trousers. On his hand, he wears gray fingerless gloves with heavy wrist weights and has a band going across the back of each hand, adorned with a star. Black Star's footwear are basic black boots with white tips, with a star shape visible on the toe of each boot.
On his right shoulder is his star-shaped tattoo, showing his heritage as a member of the Star Clan which is just a shade lighter than his normal skin tone. In earlier concept art, this tattoo had a more complex design with black markings and a symbol in the centre.

As of joining Spartoi, Black Star now wears blue pants with the hemline rolled a few inches above his ankles, with white shoes and a white belt that is similar to an obi. His feet are wrapped in bandages up to his ankles and his hands and arms are also wrapped in bandages up to the elbow. As per his previous attire, Black Star wears a sleeveless top. In this case, it is a custom, white, muscle shirt. Another new addition is a long white scarf, wrapped around his neck with the majority hanged loosely. He also has a fairly noticeable scar running across his tattoo on his right deltoids, numerous smaller scars scattered across his arms, and a faint scar-line running down his right eye—all of which were caused by Mifune during their last match. The spikes in his hair are a lot messier and not as star-shaped. Black Star has also grown in height, almost equaling his partner, Tsubaki.
His soul is bright blue, and has numerous sliks coming out of it in the manner of his hairstyle. When Resonating with Tsubaki, various black tattoos appear around it.
In the Chapter of Lust in Eibon's Book, he is transformed into a girl. His build becomes similar to Tsubaki's, although his attire is still the same, apart from the fact that his trousers turn from blue to white. His hair becomes slightly shorter and no longer spiky, taking on a more feminine look. He is also well-endowed (a fact that he does not hesitate to declare incredibly loudly to his friends).

Soul Eater Black☆Star Personality

Black☆Star's soul, under the influence of Tsubaki's Uncanny Sword mode.

At the beginning of the series, Black Star starts off as rather arrogant, loud and immature. Although he fights as an assassin, he prefers to forget the Way of Assassination by shouting and making his presence known, the reason being that he is a massive attention-seeker. He cannot stand having someone else get more attention than himself, and will proceed to beat down anyone more popular than him so he can be popular again. His loudness is often shown in his tendency to often shout when he speaks and his trademark cries of 'Yahoo!' (ひゃっはあ! Hyahhaa! in Japanese).
His arrogance stems from the fact that he seems to exhibit a superiority complex. His delusion of 'starness' as he calls it (スター性 Sutaa Sei) is so great that he constantly gives out autographs that nobody wants, including when he signs Maka's face when she is recovering from a recent battle. According to Stein, Black Star's soul is 'a terribly self-absorbed soul.' His catchphrase is 'I will be the man who will surpass God,' which he is actually trying to do according to Stein. Because of this, he shows tacit jealousy towards Death the Kid. When referring to himself, Black Star uses an honorific (俺様 Ore-sama, literally translating to 'the great me') which shows he holds himself with high regard. He constantly refers to himself as 'BIG' and the other people around him as 'small.' His arrogance later develops into a constant hunger for power, up until the point that people suspect that he may choose the 'Path of the Demon.' His arrogance can also hinder him as he is short-tempered and uncooperative when it comes to team battles, as he always tries to take the lead when the most important thing is to cooperate with each other. He accuses the people around him for being sloppy instead of admitting that he is the one getting frustrated. His confidence stems from him being used to winning all the time, so consequently, losing prominent battles causes a great negative change in him, up until the point he loses his ability to use Soul Menace.

His hubris does not allow him to take any insults on his abilities, such as when he disregards Nygus when she tells him that he is only human. He can be unobservant, and has a short attention-span, as he is shown not to remember their battle plans on the Lost Island mission. He hates being told what to do and thus mostly disobeys the Shibusen rules, often skipping classes and arriving late because of picking fights with people. He likes fighting as he sees it as a chance of proving every one that he is the best. Another thing is that he is incredibly tactless, and can sometimes be disrespectful, even insulting to his friends and even his superiors. He often has an informal way of speech and behaviour, even towards people of a higher rank than him. He loves playing practical jokes and winding people up for the fun of it. He is also a big glutton, having a massive appetite. He seems to like manga, and is a fan of the fictional manga hero, Charisma Justice.

All of his methods of going about solving anything are generally headstrong and dependent on physical strength. From time to time, he will abandon Tsubaki if she tells him to hold back or run away, which ends him up in a worse situation. This might come from people mostly seeing him as a member of the Clan of the Star and judging him for their actions rather than his own. However, he does not hold grudges against Shibusen, the organization that had killed the Clan of the Star, saying that his father and mother had paid for their crimes, which shows a surprisingly mature side to Black Star's personality. He does not like to dwell on the past, and is therefore, quick to forgive people. He tries to forget his heritage, but deep down, he is shown to be insecure about it.

Despite his rather large ego, there are more positive sides to his personality. Although it is hard to tell through his arrogance, he does genuinely care for his friends. He always arrives to his friends' aid if they are in danger, seeing himself as a protector of the people whom he classes as weaker than himself. When Black Star saves Maka from Sid, the first thing he says when Maka thanks him is, 'You're small and I'm BIG. There's no problem about it.' It is shown in team battles, that he views the safety of his friends as a priority. However, he will also take his friends' wishes into account, and will step back and allow them to fight alone if they want to. He also has a determination that knows no bounds. He constantly trains to become stronger, and is dedicated on his goals, putting all of his effort in everything he does (this has its downsides, especially when Black Star develops tunnel-vision on pursuing something that is wrong, being too stubborn to see the wrongness of his aims). He prefers to go his own way, which sometimes involves going against orders. However, despite his determination, he always fails at tests of intellect regardless of the effort he spends in studying. He never forgives the people who hurts his friends, setting off immediately to get revenge in order to defend or restore respect to his friends.

He also has a very positive and upbeat temperament (although he has his short-tempered and cheeky side) often laughing and smiling even in the glummest of situations. His cheerful demeanour can sometimes act as a support to others when they are down. He is also very honourable, not wanting to take any credit that he does not deserve. Tsubaki also mentions that although he tries to hide it, Black Star would never want to stand out for doing something bad. He detests the idea of betrayal or deception, up until the point he is angered when he realizes that the fact that he had killed Mifune is kept a secret from Angela. He also keeps on ploughing forward through adversity, whilst others may decide to run away, showing his bravery, although his bravery may sometimes border on recklessness.

Mifune and Death the Kid are prominent figures in Black Star's life, and they help him mature profoundly. When Black Star is frustrated and indecisive in his pursuit of power, they both help him decide his choice in life. During and after the infiltration of Baba Yaga's Castle, Black Star changes dramatically. He retains most of his positive traits, remaining honourable and sincere both in and out of battle, and still cares for his friends, but most of his negative traits, like his arrogance and his temper, are no longer present. He no longer declares that he is going to surpass God, and he actually starts to admit his faults, saying that some people can do things that even he cannot do. He also develops more respect for his superiors, treating people more like equals. He is more cool-headed and focused in battle. He no longer pursues power in order to stand out and surpass God, but to protect his friends and help maintain order in the world. He decides not to take the 'Path of the Demon' but the 'Path of the Warrior' and he seeks to become a 'Warrior God' (武神 Bushin). He also develops a great sense of responsibility, as he decides to redeem the names of the ones fallen by the Uncanny Sword and to grant Masamune's wish to master the way of the warrior, even if it means causing suffering to some people.

However, he is still slightly immature. He can still be a little too informal and to people, and sometimes exhibits his usual headstrong and proud ways, but it does not go over a manageable level. His childish sense of humour still sometimes embarrasses people, especially Tsubaki.

In the Lust Chapter of the Book of Eibon, Black Star switches gender, and his personality becomes more feminine. He becomes a rather clingy and attention-seeking young girl. He changes back to his male form rather quickly, showing that he is not that lustful, despite his attempts to sneak into the bathroom to peek on a naked Tsubaki (which consequently causes him to start screaming at the sight of Tsubaki, which gives him away).

Soul Eater Black☆Star

Black☆Star (ブラック☆スター, Burakku☆Sutā) occasionally called Bla☆Star (ブラ☆スター Bura☆Sutaa) by Kirikou, is one of the main Meisters that the series follows. Black Star is the only survivor of the infamous Star Clan, which explains the star on his shoulder. His Demon Weapon partner is Tsubaki Nakatsukasa. He is a Shadow Weapon Meister (暗器職人 Anki Shokunin in Japanese) which is translated into Dark Arm Meister in the English dub. Currently, he is a Two-Star Meister and a member of the elite student unit, Spartoi.
He is exceedingly arrogant and loud-mouthed for an assassin, preferring to make a big entrance rather than to sneak up on his opponents, and tries to upstage anyone who gains more attention than he does. He frequently calls himself a "big" man destined to surpass God, thus driving himself to his physical limits and making him one of the most athletic students at DWMA. He is a skilled combatant even without a weapon, and has the power to utilize a technique called "Black☆Star Big Wave" (黒☆星ビッグウェーブ Koku☆sei Biggu Wēbu) to attack opponents with his soul wavelength. He is the sole survivor of the Star Clan, a family of ninjas who slaughtered for wealth until they were wiped out by DWMA, which took him in as an infant. He is oppressed by anyone who recognizes the clan's symbol, a star-shaped tattoo on his shoulder. Due to his obsession for power, some believe he will eventually descend down the path towards a kishin like his father. In the manga, he becomes a member of the elite meister unit Spartoí at DWMA. In the anime, Black Star participates in the battle against Asura alongside Maka and Death the Kid. He gets along very well with Soul.

Soul Eater Soul Evans Trivia

Soul's headband has a rectangular sticker with the word 'soul' and a circular sticker with a mouth and the letters E-A-T on it. This references his name, 'Soul Eater.' His headband looks a little different in the very first chapters of the manga.

His last name pays tribute to the famous American jazz pianist Bill Evans.

In Chapter 69, it appers that the round sticker with the 'E-A-T' letters that was on Soul's sweatband is now stuck to his locker.

In the official popularity poll taken by the manga's readers, Soul ranked 4th.

Part of his design may have come from Emine in Ohkubo's previous manga, B. Ichi. Both characters have white hair and red eyes and wear shoes with teeth marks on their soles.

Soul's theme song is, 'So Scandalous.' He also has a character song with Maka: 'Mauve Iro no Sympathy.'

Soul Eater Soul Evans Death Scythe Abilities

Form Manipulation: This allows Soul and Maka to change the appearance of Soul's Weapon form. To what extent is not yet known but they have been seen to manipulate the length of the scythe blade in Soul's Weapon form.

Flight: Through Soul Resonance with Maka's Grigori Soul, Soul can manifest wings in his Weapon form, allowing him and Maka to fly. The two debate over what sort of wings they want, and thus it takes a little time for them to achieve this ability. At first, Soul makes sharp spiky wings, which, although achieving momentary flight, is rejected by Maka due to their unattractive appearances. After yielding to Maka's wish for more 'fluffy' angel-like wings, Soul's wings take on the form of a tiny pair of feathery wings, which achieves flight, but with incredibly low speed. After settling their argument, Soul creates a pair of large strong feathery wings which allows them great speed and versatility in the air.

Soul Eater Soul Evans Abilities

Blade: Like most Demon Weapons, Soul can change a part of his body into his Weapon form; in his case, he can transform his entire arm into the blade of a scythe, or partially transform it from the elbow downwards to make it easier for fighting. The blade is shown to point in different directions when he trasforms his arm just below the elbow. When becoming a Death Scythe, Soul, rather like Spirit, can have his blade come out of his arm rather than having his entire arm transformed (unlike Spirit's blades, Soul's blade runs parallel to his arm and is longer and narrower). Despite having the ability to perform a partial transformation, Soul's use and threat to the enemy is greatly reduced in the absence of his partner, although he has displayed decent combat skill, shown in the first encounter with Free where he stabbed the werewolf and managed to knock one of his ice attacks away to protect Maka. In battle, he does exhibit rather strong will, proceeding to get up even after being injured several times, shown in his battle against Giriko. However, as stated by Kid, Soul's speed and slashing skills are of a low standard.

Anti-Demon Wavelength and Soul Perception Achieved Through Soul Resonance: Soul has been shown to take advantage of Maka's Soul Perception and Anti-Demon Wavelength during Soul Resonance. When resonating his soul with Maka's, he can sense souls as well as she can. As a musician, he senses souls by hearing their Wavelengths, instead of seeing them like Maka. When Resonating, he shares the Anti-Demon Wavelength from Maka, protecting himself from insanity.

Black Blood: Soul posseses the Black Room inside his mind, inhabited by Little Ogre, which is born when he is infected with the Black Blood. Once the Black Blood is activated, Soul can allow it to invade the blood stream of those performing Soul Resonance with him. The Black Blood gives Soul and his infected partner(s) immense strength, at the cost of Soul, and possibly his partner, plunging into madness. Soul only uses this strength as a last resort, although Little Ogre constantly tempts him, playing on his dismay of not being a powerful Weapon on his own. However, as Soul gains more control over the insanity, he becomes gradually able to only draw out the strength of the Black Blood, and not the madness that comes with it. This does seem to strain him after overuse, however, as he has not learned to fully control it yet. When he uses too much power, he accidentally activates the Black Blood, although he still has control over its madness.

Piano: Soul's talent as a pianist becomes very useful as the series progresses, as he develops the ability to manipulate Wavelengths by treating the Soul Wavelengths of people like music. One thing he can do with this ability is create a perfect Chain Resonance even under impossible conditions. Inside the Black Room in his soul, he plays a piano, creating soundwaves and a rhythm that all the Soul Wavelengths of the Resonating individuals can follow. His piano-playing thus creates an almost perfect Resonance, and the team under his control can attack with great strength and fluidity in their movements. The team members of his Resonance rely on him to maintain the Resonance. Soul can also control their speed and efficiency in combat. By increasing the tempo of the song, the team members gain speed in their attacks, and by striking certain chords, their attack strength increases. He can also do the inverse of this i.e. slow down a person. He can also spread his partner Maka's Anti-Demon Wavelength through his piano, sometimes through great distances (he needs a medium to send the soundwaves through for this to be possible, though). After becoming a Death Scythe, he gains the ability of spreading Wavelengths using Arachne's ability of using spider webs. This makes his piano more powerful and he no longer needs a medium as he provides one himself. By playing the opposite sounds of a person's Wavelength on his piano, he can disrupt and incapacitate an opponent. Although this ability is invaluable, Soul risks falling deeper and deeper into the insanity of the Black Blood if he plays too long, and thus limits his playing time. He also needs Maka's Soul Perception in order to sense everyone else's Soul Wavelengths, meaning he cannot use his ability alone.
