  • In the Anime of Soul Eater, White Star was shown to consume souls despite the fact it was told in earlier episodes only demon weapons can consume soul. This is seen as one of the various inconsistencies within the anime. In the manga, he was killed as a result of his crimes.
  • Both White☆Star and Excalibur share the same English dub voice actor, Troy Baker.
