[[folder:Live Action Films]]
* The entirety of the finale of ''Death Note: The Last Name'', from [[spoiler:the emotional punch in the gut when Light and the audience realise that the Death Note didn't work on his father, and he saw everything, to the scene when he's walking home with Sayu, who's crying because she thinks Kira killed Light.]] Just... ''[[KickTheDog ouch]]''.
** The look of absolute horror and heartbreak on [[spoiler: Soichiro's]] face when Light demands that Ryuk kill them all. Kinda makes one glad we ''didn't'' see his reaction when [[spoiler: Light wrote his name in the Death Note. It couldn't have been pretty.]]
** [[spoiler:Light's death in the movie. [[DiedInYourArmsTonight Dying in his father's arms]], still claiming he was justice. The arms of the father he'd tried to murder only minutes before. [[OutlivingOnesOffspring Oh, Soichiro]]...]]
* [[spoiler:L had to write his own name in the Death Note to prove Light was Kira. He eventually dies of a heart attack in an empty hotel room, when even his anime counterpart had people crying out for him and doing what they could to find his murderer. The last shot of him is his corpse slumped in his coach, just seconds after he said his last good-bye to Soichiro and told him he was a good father.]]
* In ''Change the [=WorLd=]'', the scene where Maki, one the kids L has to protect [[spoiler:decides ''not'' to kill the villain (who is also her father's murderer) and ends up crying as L holds her and says "You're a good girl. I believed in you."]] And there's the bit at the end: [[spoiler:L takes the other child, a little boy, to Wammy's, and finally give him a name: Near. He then hands him a bag, the newly-named Near looks inside and pulls out the toy robot he had liked in a store.]] Several moments later, as L leaves, his voice-over reveals that [[spoiler:he's not ready to die; he wants to live longer.]]
* From ''Light up the NEW World'':
** After being told that Light may still be alive, [[spoiler: Misa writes her own name in a Death Note, specifying that she'd die in his arms. As Light is without a doubt dead, she dies alone and with a sad look on her face, most likely having known all along that the possibility of Light's survival wasn't true and that she'd see him in death instead.]]
** [[spoiler: When Nanase threatens to shoot Mishima, Arma writes her name down and saves his life, causing her own death. Ryuzaki bursts into tears, knowing that there's nothing he can do to save her.]]

** Even worse when you remember that [[spoiler: anyone who uses the Death Note can go to neither Heaven or Hell. Light essentially forced Raye Penbar to murder his allies and gave him a FateWorseThanDeath for good measure]].

** The worst thing about it? Light gives her an out. He tells her how young and beautiful she is and that she has her whole life ahead of her, and she responds that she doesn't have anything to lose anymore. She had her own life to lose, but she was too blinded by her desire for revenge to think of that.

** That's one of the saddest things about Death Note. Light was so smart and could have done anything he wanted, but when he found the Death Note it basically ruined his life. He was never a bad person when he didn't have the Death Note.

* Episode 4: Raye Penber uses the Death Note unknowingly when [[spoiler: Light holds him hostage and forces him to write down the names of the FBI agents investigating Kira. Penber's allies die by his own hand.]] Made even worse by the fact that Penber cannot go to Heaven nor Hell now that he has been forced to use the Death Note.

**Just [[spoiler:L's death,]] full stop. He's just seen [[spoiler:Watari]] go, and the whole scene is incredibly tense anyway. [[spoiler:Then we see the spoon fall...]]
