* Episode 12: Gelus is just so sad-looking and [[spoiler:his death to save Misa's life was pretty heartwrenching]]. Especially [[spoiler:for poor Rem who was couldn't do anything but watch.]] Especially since it was basically [[spoiler: one StalkerWithACrush sacrificing himself to save the object of his crush from ''another'' Stalker.]]

** This exchange, right before [[spoiler:Gelus' HeroicSacrifice]]. Rem even sounded like she felt sorry for poor Gelus.
-->'''Rem:''' Today's her last day, isn't it?\\
'''Gelus:''' ''(on the edge of tears)'' She looks so full of life... it's just not fair...

** Not only does Light reveal he's Kira, he proceeds to ''mock'' her, asking Naomi if she wants to talk to his father now, knowing that thanks to the Death Note, she's lost all her free will and is about to [[spoiler:commit suicide]], and they ''both'' know she can't do a damn thing about it. And he does it all with a smirk on his face. Light, you utter ''bastard''.

* There's something incredibly sad in the last two rules of the Death Note: "All humans, without exception, will eventually die" and [[spoiler: "When they die, the place they go is Mu (Nothingness)."]] Even if we all know that death is unavoidable, it's still a gloomy, laconic reminder of human inability to control life and death.

* [[spoiler: Ukita's death]] in Episode 11. When Aizawa and Matsuda see his body on the TV, Aizawa tries to go after him, but L argues that it's too dangerous and that they need to think rationally. Aizawa accuses him of not caring until he notices that L is shaking and trying to keep himself calm.
-->'''L:''' Please control yourself. We've lost [[spoiler: Ukita]].

* 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 him, 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]]''.

** [[spoiler: Light losing it was bad, ''Matsuda'' losing it was horrible. He so ''genuinely'' seemed to admire Light, and seeing him shoot him repeatedly with tears streaming down his face (which provides the page image), then having to be stopped from killing Light by the other officers was some seriously upsetting stuff.]] And of course, [[spoiler:Light]]'s reaction to this is tear jerking as well:
---> [[spoiler:'''Light''': Matsuda, ''you '''idiot'''''! ''Who '''the hell''' do you think you're shooting at''?!]]
** [[spoiler:When Light realized that he there was no one left to help him, and him still not realizing it was largely his fault.]]

** There’s some FridgeHorror at work too: consider that [[spoiler:she traded half her remaining life ''twice'' for Shinigami eyes, and she dies only a year after the main story -- that means she would have only had four years left to live even had she not found her own Death Note. The poor girl never had even half a shot at a normal life.]]

* The fact that at the end of it all, the people left behind still couldn't decide whether Kira's actions were right or wrong.
* Evil as Light may have been, his actions as Kira ''ended war and reduced crime by 70%'' — [[spoiler:a result that didn't survive more than a few months past his death]] — and positively affected thousands, perhaps ''millions'' of good people around the world. [[spoiler:Now their savior, the man who brought them justice where no one else could, is gone]].

*** This -- especially in the anime where [[spoiler: he's lying on the ground in the moments after being shot, calling out to Takada and Misa, asking what he should do in a voice like that of a little lost child.]]

Light dies bleeding out cold and alone, all of his allies dead, everyone who trusted him now seeing the monster he has become, every effort completely in vain as crime returns to its usual rates only a few months after his death.]]

[[AC: Episode 14]]
* L calling Light his only friend. For a moment this actually seems to get to Light, given how shocked he looks, but then in the next scene he's still resolved to kill L.
