* GivingTheSwordToANoob: [[spoiler: Misa]] is granted the Death Note, but never uses it wisely except under Light's direction.



* GodsHandsAreTied: If a shinigami uses the Death Note to extend the natural life span of a human (for example, by stopping an attacker), the shinigami dies.

* CliffHanger: The second to last episode. [[spoiler: The episode ends right as Light's clock strikes at the time he dictated in the Death Note that Near's team and the task force would die.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: in the post-series oneshot, Near has a magnificent example of this, using [[KirkSummation a single sentence]] ([[spoiler: You abominable monster!]]) to demolish C-Kira's motive for killing.

* IHaveComeTooFar: Light sincerely believes this; he has a HeroicBSOD after his second killing before coming to realization. It's what drives him at that point.

Added DiffLines:

* QuittingToGetMarried:
** Naomi Misora has agreed to do this because her fiance, Ray Penber, worries about her in her line of work, though it often comes across as just him being a misogynist.
** Also, Light asks Misa to retire from filming in the manga version when he (rather unromantically) says they'll get married.

* OmnicidalManiac: By the second episode, it seems that Kira has at ''least'' a few followers wishing he'd just kill everyone.

Added DiffLines:

* BeaconOfHope:
** Soichiro Yagami, despite being a bit stern, is the voice of reason within the Kira Investigation Group and always helps set the group back on track if they begin to stray morally. Even when it seems that the only way to progress is to do something wicked, Soichiro will fight it or look for another way, only showing force as an act or when he has no choice.
** Touta Matsuda, while a bit of a comic relief, is pure in his sense of justice. He seeks to end Kira's seemingly endless cycle of killing and to give all those lost the justice they deserve. He is the ever-optimistic pawn in the system, but nonetheless will fight for what he believes in, only becoming violent when more lives are at stake, such as when he [[spoiler:shoots Light after learning he is Kira and plans to kill more people]].

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first few chapters actually come off as strange compared to the later ones. The way the story and even pages of the manga are set up is different and while L retains the [[TheFaceless faceless]] role at first, he's shown in a meditating pose, slouching on the ground and practically every kind of sitting position ''except'' his iconic squatting in chairs.
