* AffablyEvil or FauxAffablyEvil: Is a bit of both, as he can be genuinely nice to Light and Misa, but fits the latter in his malicious way of curing boredom. Of course, it's worth noting that Shinigami are not hard-wired toward compassion for humans to begin with, so from Ryuk's standpoint, his actions do not seem immoral.

** It is interesting to note that he pretty much loses this speech pattern after the explosion. It's quite possible that he merely affected it to fit in while he was in the mafia, and after the explosion, reverted more to his regular way of speech because there was no more need to keep up the act.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Mikami goes to the bank on the 25th of every month, unless the bank is closed on the 25th. When Mikami goes to the bank on the 25th and again on the 26th, it's so strange that it tips Giovanni off that ''something'' went down and it leads him to find the real death note.
