* DarkAndTroubledPast: Like all successors, he's an orphan, making it not unlikely he [[HarmfulToMinors witnessed his family die]], with apparently no remaining family that could have (or wanted to) adopt him, and was [[LaserGuidedTykebomb groomed]] from an [[ChildSoldiers extremely young age]] (likely being confronted with [[HarmfulToMinors very graphic crime scene evidence]] during the process) to succeed the world's greatest detective, and actively being pushed to compete with his peers no matter the cost to his mental health.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsPetty: When it comes down to it, his entire motive for being evil is motivated purely because he was bullied at school.


Added DiffLines:

* TautologicalTemplar: When his mother scolded him for [[BullyHunter fighting bullies at school]], Mikami declares her an enemy of justice, and when she and said bullies subsequently die in a car accident, he's ecstatic, taking it to mean that God was looking out for him. He takes Kira's mission even further than Light himself when he begins to kill reformed criminals and even [[FelonyMisdemeanor lazy people]].

* AmbiguousDisorder: Has the inferiority complex, impulsiveness, and black-and-white perspective of somebody with borderline personality disorder.

Additionally, people with BPD often desire closeness, but due to their disorder tend to alienate people more than anything; from what little we see of him during his time at Wammy's House, he's always isolated.

* DeathSeeker: Some of the material in the series seems to point to the fact that Misa isn't exactly concerned with her own life. Misa deliberately seeks out dangerous situations: for one example, she walks home alone, at night, on a deserted street, and for another she begins the entire attack on Sakura TV while being across the street in person. She then shows up on the mass-murderer Kira's doorstep and volunteers to be his girlfriend ''while knowing full well that he could kill her.'' She in fact explicitly offers Light the option of killing her if she gets to be a burden. Also, she begs Rem to kill her when she feels that she has a good justification to ask that of Rem, and, mind you, when Soichiro informs Misa that both she and Light are to be executed, it is Light's life that she begs for. And of course when Light dies, she kills herself soon after.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterTic: Near is always doing something with his hands. If he isn't playing with toys or stacking things, he's twirling his hair.


Added DiffLines:

* EpicFail: During one phone call Near is shown throwing a dart at a board which completely misses. A few scenes later and the viewer is given a top-down view of the dart board showing a large pile of darts on the floor and ''none'' stuck into the board itself.

* TheBeard: Becomes Light's official girlfriend (and in the manga, finance), but he keeps her around only to make him look "normal" enough to not be Kira. She knows this, too, and hopes she can make him actually love her.
* BeastAndBeauty: With Gelus who she never met, and then with Rem. Both are shinigami so in love with her they are willing to disregard the laws of life and death for her sake. Plus she's probably the only human Rem regards fondly. Unfortunately subverted in that Misa doesn't seem to care that deeply for either of them, and lets Light manipulate Rem as he pleases.
