* KickTheSonOfABitch: His murder of Light at the end of the series. Moreso in the manga and the second movie, where Light begs him to write the names of the Task Force in his Death Note. Ryuk instead writes ''Light'''s name, and shows Light what he did.

* FalseFriend: Though he "betrays" Light and kills him in the end, this trope is [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; Ryuk made it perfectly clear that he was fated to kill Light as soon as he met him, and as far as things go, he really ''was'' Light's friend for all intents and purposes. It's just that loyalty and emotional attachment traditionally doesn't come with the package when you're friends with a god of death. [[BlueAndOrangeMorality From Ryuk's point of view]], killing Light once his usefulness was lived up is just the natural way of things. No hard feelings.

* {{Foil}}: His relationship with Light and the way it ends is a nice foil to Rem and Misa's relationship. Rem genuinely loved Misa and, when forced into a situation where her only choice was to use the Death Note to save her, chose the very un-Shinigami like route of sacrificing herself in order to save Misa. Ryuk on the other hand, while fond of Light, mostly just sees him and his shenanigans as entertainment; when Ryuk finds himself in a similar situation as Rem, he just kills ''Light'' with his Death Note rather than try to save him.
