Every manga universe has wild card theories that become true, as well as mysteries the author is in no rush to reveal. Here lie a list (or a discussion) on things that make you scratch your head in Beelzebub, as well as pet theories you hope will someday be true...
Things that make me go "hmm":
Who is Saotome's demon contract with?
Is Grandpa Kunieda uncontracted?
Is Beel ever going to wear clothes?
What is Jabberwock's relationship with Laymia?
Things that I kind of want to happen:
Furuichi gets a contract with someone and promptly causes them to lose all their powers.
I want talk about the old Guys. The Grandpas who doesn´t need a contract, i think more about there are all pure Demons. All of them treat there students like demons. XD I think Grandpa is a Demon even like Behemoth and the Saint Ishiyama headmaster. There are all old Demons who live quiet in the human world. I think there are many of them and more and more will come to conquer Beelzebub and his contractor.
About Saomtome i got an other interisting question. When Saotome Safe Oga from the Pillars befor the Training Arc. But non of them was know, what Saotome is or was. I mean when u the strongest from the last world, all other one should know you. Only Jabberwock and Behemoth an all other know Saotome, that was a little bit mystery. That non of the small Demons know the strongest Demon from last war.
About his contractor, that could no other one then King Beelzebub. When he was the Winner of the last War, then his Demon must be the Demon King.
And then lets talk about the biggest mystery in complete Beelzebub. I talk with many Fans about that Charachter. Got Natsume later a bigger Part in Beelzebub. From the first Arc and entries Natsume got always a mystery aura around him. He is the real strongest behind Aoi and Toujou. He always get a own fight or best position and his kick speed and power is amazing and everything it looks like he keep his power low. I will not suprise, when all other got down in the fights against Lunana and Furichi will stay at last or the only one without any cut.
The last opponent from Oga is not Toujou it will be Saotome and Beelzebub Father.
Seriously, I've already lost my faith in Natsume. I think at the beginning Tamura planned something big for him, but with the recent events Natsume seems to me a strong guy but nothing special. Or it or he is pretty good actor.
In my opinon, Natsume seems pretty developed. He's the kind of guy who'd rather someone else take the lead, while he operates outside of the limelight. I have never though of him as an enigma.
Going back to what Black Hawk was saying...I think its a bit too obvious if Saotome was the contractor to the Demon King, but at least that would explain why the King is enamored with old-school games, if that's what he was exposed to back then.
It would be great for Ikaruga to appear in the manga again, I want to know what kind of demon she's contracted with as well.
Hey I was doing some rereading and you know the mysterious figure which appeared over the Ishiyama school ruins? I think that was Aoi's mother because girl's hair from the her friend's flashback and the mystery person's matches up.
Beelzebub mysteries I'm interested in:
Satome's contractor, Aoi's parents and grandpa, this great war in demon world, what does Beel's dad's face look like and last but not least:
WHO THE FLYING FUCK WAS THE GUY WHO BLOCKED BEELS FOOT IN DEMON WORLD?
I mean seriously we know NOTHING of this guy and from what it looks like, he's in a completely different faction! WHO IS HE?!!?!?
If you are doing a quick re-check of loose ends in this series, let me contribute. I'm particularly curious about:
i. How exactly Toujou is getting stronger by the day.
ii. Why it is that Dr. Forcas told Saotome that it would be troublesome if he helped Beel's side too much.
iii. Whether there is significance to the fact that only six humans are strong enough to feel demonic power (Oga, Kunieda, Izuma, Toujou, Miki and Shizuka) and if so, whether said characters are going to become more important (well Oga, Kunieda and Toujou are already important).
(Sometimes I get the feeling that the series was going in one direction around chapter 80, but later Tamura-sensei was told to expand it to make it longer. So he made a major detour and that's why things like item iii, Athrun, the person atop the rubble in chapter 38 and so on were never mentioned again.)
The only thing I want to know right now is what Arthrun (did I write his name right?) is up to and who is his boss.
For the rest, I too think that Saotome could be the contractor of the Demon King; I mean, it wouldn't be impossible.
Strange, no one mentioned Kunieda's mother?
I think Saotome is too young to be the demon lords contractor since Hilda who looks like a teenager or atleast a young adult is over a hundred years old and from what little we have seen of him the demon lord looks like an adult. Another thing that makes me think Saotome isn't the DL cotractor is that the from symbol his hand is different from Oga, and Oga's symbol was suppose to be the symbol of the family.
Athrun should really return, I miss him.
Hey guys I just remembered a mystery way back from chapter one.
Remember Alaindelon floating down the river? He had an arrow sticking out of his chest and we never found out how that happened or who shot it.
Of course it could have been part of the ploy to drop baby Beel on the hapless chump who found him.
Another thing to consider: Saotome's contractee didn't have to be a child. If we assume the Demon Lord is mentally the same age as Saotome, Ikaruga, Kunieda's parents, etc, he could still be a valid choice. Maybe that's why the Demon Lord knows so much about 80s video games and pasttimes, he came to Earth as a teenager and hung out at Ishiyama High with the rest of the gang.
About the Old Guys I don't think that they are 100% Demons I think they are defenders from demons who are causing too much trouble in the Human World.
I also think Natsume's character is well developed.
The other demons that are named before Dragons, it was said that powerful demons were named before Dragons right like Jabberwock.
Does SATAN exists in the story?
Well Satan and Beelzebub is a different being.

So since the arc may or may not be related to demon contractors, I want to pose a question: which is more likely, a demon with more than one contractor or a human with more than one contractee?
Because I was thinking, we know very little about how contracts work outside of Oga and Beel's very specific arrangement. For example, I doubt the 15m rule extends to other demons since Beel is a baby. If En contracted with someone he might give that person half a kilometer, or something. Also, suppose these three freshmen are contractors -- what if they're all contracted by the same demon? That would actually cause them to function as a unit, even if they don't seem to be related to each other (as of yet).
A human with more than one contractee would ruin the narrative purpose of contracts (the stronger the demon the stronger the human becomes), I guess. And it would allow endless power-ups, thus making a poor plot device.
But a demon with more contractors would be interesting. There are two possible outcomes in the current arc, not mutually exclusive: the demon becomes three times as strong, and the contractors get a third of the demon's power each. That would mean Oga would defeat Nasu pretty easily, but have trouble when facing the three first-years together (thus explaining the New Year Dream).
However, if that were true, wouldn't Hilda prefer to find several strong contractor for Beel instead of relying on Oga solely?
Second i don´t think Hilda can´t overstand 3 Human idiots. Ogas stupid actions actions are already enough for Hilda. Three of them, interisting to see Hilda on rampage.
And i agree with you in the other Points. What will be the Sideeffects if a Human has more then one Contract. We saw on Furichi what it can bring to only summon only one Demon. I think by three you die or loose controll of your Body and yourself.
