* AmnesiacDissonance: Even after Light falls in love with L and realizes that his plan to rid the world of crime had been fundamentally flawed and doomed to fail from the start, he still convinces himself that he was nonetheless justified in using the Death Note for as long as he did -- until he loses his memories of the Death Note for good, whereupon he becomes absolutely repulsed at the thought that Kira might have manipulated or even been him and firmly believes that L shouldn't let his feelings for him get in the way of punishing him if he turns out to have indeed been Kira, even rejecting all the possible explanations/justifications L brings up for making his punishment less severe.

* BirdsOfAFeather: In spite of Light and L's obvious differences in opinion on Kira and justice, it becomes clear that both of them are deeply screwed-up {{Manipulative Bastard}}s who could never be happy with anyone else because they need someone who provides them with constant intellectual stimulation and never becomes boring to them.

* LoveMartyr: Light
* LoveRedeems

to:

* LoveMartyr: Light
LoveRedeems: [[ZigzaggingTrope Zigzagged]]. Light's realization that killing L, someone he has grown close to, would cause him to lose the last of his sanity contributes to his decision to stop being Kira, but he doesn't view it or the impromptu sex they had on the roof as the sole reason for his decision. In addition, developing feelings for L doesn't stop Light from still being a prideful ManipulativeBastard who has little empathy for others outside of his family or L; he becomes more willing to admit that he might be wrong about some things and take L's feelings in consideration to make their relationship work, but he's still hardly a nice person. The author describes Light as not so much "redeemed" as "rehabilitated".
* LoveRedeems LovesMyAlterEgo: The final chapter makes it clear that while L really does love Light back, he still hates Kira and would be far from quick to ever forgive Light if he found out the truth one day.

* MultitaskedConversation: Light frequently has to communicate with the Shinigami and L at the same time.
* {{Mutants}}: [[spoiler: Since L proved that [[ByTheEyesOfTheBlind Light can see something that no one else can see]], and that [[{{Seers}} he reacted to events he had no way of knowing about]], and [[BreakingTheBonds somehow Light's chain broke...]]]] the taskforce now thinks Light has superhuman powers.

Matsuda pesters him to [[MindOverMatter levitate something]]. something]].
* MythologyGag: One of Light's reasons for giving up on being Kira is his theory that since he can no longer use Misa to deflect suspicion away from him, he would eventually have to give a Death Note to a fanatical but mentally unstable Kira follower if he ever came under suspicion again for being Kira which would lead to his downfall -- which is indeed exactly what happened to him in the second half of the manga and anime.

Similarly, while Light has had sex with other men, L is clearly the only person in the world outside of his family capable of making him feel anything close to love.
