** Tsugumi Ohba's and Takeshi Obata's next series, ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'' had a thinly veiled SelfDeprecation in which a series that was a stand-in for Death Note, was be pressured by the Editor to continue dragging the story out past the main rivalry. This leaves the impressions that Ohba and Obata ''originally'' did not plan for the series to continue pass the "Light vs L" plot.

* AscendedFanon: Ohba originally had no intention of meaning anything when L kicks Light in retaliation for being punched, but when fans identified L's kick as a move in ''UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}'', Ohba decided to just ThrowItIn and take over the idea that L was a practitioner of said martial art.

** ''How To Read'' also mentions that in the planning stages it was briefly considered that Mello and Near would be L's twin sons but that idea was scrapped, likely as it would mean someone like L actually managed to have sex with a girl and the author just couldn't see that ever happening[[note]]as well as with L being 25 at the time of his death and Mello and Near being young teenagers when they're introduced, that would have brought up some uncomfortable implications about the age of their "father"[[/note]], so Mello and Near became {{Tykebomb}} orphans instead. Mello was also going to have white hair, as seen in an early color poster featuring the younger versions of him and Near (on the main page), but had his hair changed to blond by the time Obata started doing color images with his adult self.
