* ShowWithinAShow: Years after the Death Note case, comics and movies based on it become very popular; the ''Manga/DeathNote'' manga series could ostensibly exist within the pilot's universe

* {{Foreshadowing}} In a highly meta sense. While the detectives are investing the mysterious deaths caused by the Death Note, one of them hypothetically asks what they would do if they could kill people just by thinking about it (which isn't too far removed from the kind of power a Death Note would give). One detective says he'd try to create a just and righteous world by eliminating all those whom he believed the world would be better off without, while the other says he'd kill off anybody who got in his way or suspected him of murder. This conversation effectively predicts main series protagonist Light Yagami's actions after ''he'' finds the Death Note.

Readers liked it so much that it was adapted into the full series that it is today. However, there were plenty of changes. As quoted from the main page: "the schoolboy became a mega genius with a [[AGodAmI god complex]], the boring {{Film Noir}}ish detective became a freakish mega genius with a sweet tooth, and the DeusExMachina ending was replaced with {{Xanatos Gambit}}s by the bucketload, and the rest is history".

The rest of the one-shot plays out like a supernatural horror story, which ends with [[DeusExMachina the death eraser]] which Taro uses in the end to bring all of the victims back to life; years later, rumors of the incident become a popular urban legend and pop-culture phenomenon.

Before the hit manga ''DeathNote'' was first published in 2004, a year before, there was a one-shot pilot which ran in ''Weekly Shonen Jump'' #36.

* [[spoiler:HappyEnding: Taro gets this, but - due to him keeping and ''possibly'' still using the death note - it's not clear if this applies to anybody ''other'' than him.]]
