** In the novel Another Note, Mello sympathizes with Beyond Birthday because of this.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyChristian: He wears a rosary necklace [[note]] Even though wearing one as a necklace is not technically correct. But, then again, Mello never was one for playing by the rules! [[/note]], as well as a matching bracelet, and crosses and even a Virgin Mary graphic appear on his clothes [[UnlimitedWardrobe occasionally]]. He also has a crucifix on the wall, a little cross charm on his gun, and a small Marian shrine on the mantle in his personal living space. He also refers in ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'' to [[{{God}} The Almighty]]. This, and a real name [[spoiler: Mihael Keehl]] that marks Mello as being possibly from a predominantly Catholic country or ethnic background, leads many fans to believe that he is [[TokenReligiousTeammate a practicing Catholic]]. It would also be [[AgainstMyReligion a plausible reason]] to fight against Kira besides besting Near, [[spoiler: whom he technically ''gave'' the role of L's successor to in a fit of sour grapes.]] However, it is never actually confirmed InUniverse if Mello actually ''is'' a Catholic, or if he ''was'' one but [[RaisedCatholic is not anymore]], or is one InNameOnly, or if he's some ''other'' type of Christian (real or made-up) that's similar to Catholicism but isn't, or if he just thinks the [[CreepyCoolCrosses crosses]], and such look [[RuleOfCool cool]].

* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: While L was a quiet, reserved man who could infiltrate a Japanese university, Mello is a loud, hot-blooded European. While L ate all sorts of sweets, Mello's TrademarkFavoriteFood is chocolate. While L employed a few petty crooks, Mello bent a mafia gang to his will. While L eventually died at Rem's hand, Mello took down Light with a ThanatosGambit.

* AdaptationalDumbass: While Misa wasn't [[OvershadowedByAwesome the most intelligent person]] in the original manga, she did have a good head on her shoulders and was serious about her actions, knew simple, slightly dangerous yet effective plans on how to get what was needed, like in the Yotsuba Arc where [[spoiler: she goes off on her own to investigate Higuchi from the Yotsuba group and records his admission that he is the current Kira]] which played a big role in finishing up that arc. The anime altered her intelligence to the point of downplaying any big moments she had in the manga and even [[AdaptationPersonalityChange changed her personality]] to be more airheaded and up-played her {{Yandere}} traits towards Light, making her a typical TheDitz character.

* {{Bowdlerise}}d: In the manga, Mello wears a rosary as a necklace, and he has a matching bracelet, a little cross charm on his gun, a crucifix and a small Marian shrine, and occasionally cross motifs on his clothes. [[note]] In any other series, Mello would be a ChurchMilitant! [[/note]] In the anime, all of Mello's crosses are edited away, and the crucifix and Marian shrine he has in his living space are never seen. Special mention goes to the rosary, where the crucifix is turned into a nondescript red stick charm.
