* Perhaps WMG, but why is Mello the one who knows about and is the narrator of the events in Another Note? He's a hell of a lot like the killer in that story, [[spoiler:Beyond Birthday.]] Both he and the killer were [[spoiler:raised at Wammy's to succeed L]], are sort of "partnered" with another successor (Near for Mello, [[spoiler:A for Beyond]]) are considered inferior for whatever reason to that partner, and do what they do to basically one-up their rival. L told Mello about the LABB Murder Case and nobody else knows - this could easily have been as a lesson to Mello not to be a B.

* Rem threatens to kill Light if he ever does anything to harm Misa or make her unhappy but according to Rule 34 of the Notebook, Death Note owners are protected from other Gods of Death meaning ''Ryuk'' is supposed to have soul rights to Light's name and is the only Shinigami allowed to kill him. So odds are Rem was bluffing him and [[MomentOfAwesome it worked.]] It would also explain why she doesn't take an alternative (such as killing Light) when she discovers Light's plan for her. -- Tropers/{{feral}}

* The Shinigami eye deal. A Shinigami who loses their death note gets to steal half the death note users remaining lifespan, guaranteeing that the notebook-less shinigami will outlive the human using it.
* Soichiro, who was 54, dies soon after making a deal that cut his lifespan. It cut their remaining lifespan. Soichiro died shortly after making the deal so he didn't have long. Misa got Gelus' reamining years added to her lifespan when he died, so she could have lived for hundreds of years, in theory.
* The Sakujo scene where Mikami kills Demegawa and his followers. Knowing the Modus Operandum of Kira, why Sakura TV didn't stopped the transmission with the first dead guy, instead of waiting for everyone to die. Maybe should be on the JustBugsMe page, but it doesn't bugs me, maybe because it was freaking awesome.
** Because Kira was sending a message. He was already angry enough at what they had done that he felt it neccessary to kill them on air. If they cut the transmission before he was finished, it might have only made him madder.

* People are upset with Near for being a "ripoff of L." That's the point. [[spoiler: He says so himself that he by himself is highly inferior to L but was chosen with Mello in order continue his legacy. Near being sub par to L on his own was done on purpose.]]

* Misa proves quite the KarmaHoudini in the second live action film, as she is shown to be released from custody despite having kiled Mogi, who here [[DeathByAdaptation dies in place of]] Ukita. But think about it: the police couldn't convict her without exposing the existence of the Death Note. Plus with the Note's destruction, she won't remember having ever been Kira, or having used the notebook.

** Light is also shown using his left hand to write with his own blood after getting the notebook from Higuchi and writing his name on the little piece of the death note he keeps in his watch. He uses his right hand in his attempt to write Near's name down, however.

* Light being Japanese is Fridge Brilliance (although it's likely simply due to the medium itself). This is significant because Japan is the only developed country in the past twenty years that has actually increased executions. US executions have fallen by half and even the number of Chinese has dropped off. Moreover, over 80% of Japanese people support capital punishment, meaning that Light would likely have had enormous popular support in his home country as Kira (especially compared to the rest of the world). What initiated such strong support for the death penalty? The 1995 sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway, which killed thirteen people, severely injured fifty and caused temporary vision problems for nearly a thousand others. Light would have been nine years old when this occurred and it probably would have been horribly traumatizing as it was the most serious attack in Japan's modern history and deeply affected the nation. Interestingly, the perpetrator of the attacks claimed to be Christ and said "hs purported mission was to take upon himself the sins of the world." For anyone who remembers the attacks, Light would very well seem to have become the very thing he most reviled.

* Not only does Light manipulate Raye into unwittingly killing his collegues, but he does this with the Death Note, making Raye a Death Note user. Raye, an innocent, loses both his life and his afterlife to Kira.

* When you think about it , it's no wonder the 'L is the father of Mello and Near' was never brought to canon ...considering everything that would bring up ..lets say L was 25 when he died , and Mello and Near would have been 14 when that happened , that means L would have been around ELEVEN when he became a father ! It's not the fact no one would sleep with a weird guy that's the issue there...it's the possibility of L having been raped by some psycho , pedo bitch !

** Also, presumably, in her bra. The fact Mello never saw her holding it after she took her clothes off is another mystery, as there would have been no way to conceal it in just one hand. She was holding the crumpled piece of the death note in one hand as we saw, but she had no other way -other than carefuly hiding it under the blanket she was wearing afterwards- of concealing it.

* Ryuk is the ''source'' of tons of this.
* [[EternalRecurrence Ryuk could be doing this again and again]] [[KarmaHoudini and never be punished for it.]]

to:

* Ryuk There's an entire world of Death Gods that feed off human lifespans ALL THE TIME! Most of them just randomly kill whoever they happen to see. One could be cutting your life short right now...
* The Death Note itself
is a whole can of FridgeHorror. As bad as Light was, what with his delusional quest to rid the ''source'' world of tons "evil" and become "God", the book could've possibly ended up in the hands of this.
''anyone'', anywhere in the world; as there are of course many other villains out there, who are far '''worse''' people than he could ever be. The possibilities of ruining the world with just this one magic notebook are endless...

** This would also invalidate one of the major rules of the Death Note. The owner must right the name and have a clear image of that person's face in mind. One must intend to kill their target.

** Except that there were others on the bus who could have connected him - such a mass murder and Light (and maybe the bus driver) being the only survivors would make it easy to narrow Light down.

** In the anime (at least) Rem says that a shinigami's internal organs have evolved or degraded to the point of withering, so they don't have functioning stomachs or other digestive organs. Ryuk also says that apples to him are like cigarettes and alcohol to humans; he doesn't need them, but he craves them nonetheless. Perhaps after trying them the last time he was in the human world, he got addicted to them? Plus the fact shinigami apples are black, withered and (according to Misa) taste like sand, human world apples look so much more appealing to Ryuk.

** In the case of Lind L. Tailor, there's no way Light would or could have misspelled it; in the television broadcast L set-up with the inmate actually named Lind L. Tailor, there was a clear sign on the desk in front of the man on television with his name on it. As for Light's second victim (the guy on the bike), Light luckily got his name right on he very first try. Also, not everyone in the world has a middle name, so perhaps middle names don't necessarily have to count, otherwise Light and all of the other Kiras would have had to include them every time they wrote a person's name in the death notes.
