    Nacht Has A Significant Birthday

    Nacht Faust's birthday is April 30th. April 30th is Walpurgis Night, a German day that's connected to devil worship and witchcraft. The date is mentioned in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's famous play, Faust, which Nacht takes his last name from.

    Also, the first parts of Nacht's devils' names spell out the word “Walpurgis.” ワルプルギス Warupurugisu: ワルグナ (Waruguna), プルメデ (Purumede), モデロ (Gimodero), and ロトス (Surotosu). While it's not confirmed that Tabata chose the date because of these connections, it seems highly likely that he did.

    Yuno Was Supposed To Pass Away Early

    In an interview with Weekly Shonen Jump, Series Editor Fukuda revealed that originally, Yuno wasn't going to live past Chapter 7 of Black Clover.

    It's hard to imagine the rest of the series without him, so we're glad that plot point didn't make it past the drawing board.

    Gauche Is The Smartest Member Of The Black Bulls

    When asked to rank the Black Bulls from most to least intelligent, Tabata listed Gauche as the smartest. We're assuming that this doesn't include social or emotional intelligence.

    Asta is listed as the least intelligent. While that seems harsh, it ties him to old school shonen heroes like Goku and Luffy who are awesome without being bright.
