** This may or may not have been intentional, depending on when the trend picked up, [[http://akihabaranews.com/2013/08/12/article-en/kira-kira-names-shiny-names-kids-chagrin-many-japan-1701127852 but Light's name is written with the kanji 月, meaning 'moon'.]]. It's a [[JustForPun kirakira]] name.

* {{Woolseyism}}: ''Death Note'' is a story so intricate that it leaves very little room for changes of any kind... and yet, the anime's dubbing team somehow snuck in this little gem:
--> '''Misa:''' I would never dream of living in a world without Light!\\
'''L:''' Yes, that would be dark.

** From the Drama we have the Mello puppet. Its concept is so bizarre and and mind-boggling, but somehow it was crazy enough to work. Too bad they do next to nothing with it.
** To add to that, it's more than a bit jarring that [[EnsembleDarkHorse Matt]] is not in it all. You'd of thought that the creators would've wanted to give one of the fan favorites a time to shine, but due to how the story was adapted, he was written out.

** During his incarceration, Light theorizes that another Kira might be controlling him. This is actually a very interesting concept and would've turned the entire series on its head if it had been true.
** The whole idea of [[spoiler:Mello being Near's split personality in drama.]]



* UnintentionallySympathetic: Light is this in spades. He was villanous from the moment he picked up the Death Note, and only on very rare occasions can he be called anything close to an AntiHero, yet that doesn't stop his arguably MisaimedFandom from rationalizing his actions and RootingForTheEmpire. The fact that [[spoiler:he dies [[AintTooProudToBeg pathetically begging for his life]] and scared shitless]] doesn't help either, and can be very hard to watch for some people, no matter how well-deserved one may think it is.

** Near is even more of this in the drama, where he is actually played by a girl.

* OutGambitted: Despite his death, [[TheChessmaster L]] can be considered to have ultimately out-gambitted Light via ThanatosGambit if you believe that he specifically set things up so Mello and Near could play off of each other's strengths to bring down whoever had killed him (which happened to be Light). Which is funny enough because, ultimately, the one gambit Light himself was too haughty to resort to was the thanatos gambit.

* LoveToHate: Light.Light is a delusional KnightTemplar and only gets worse with time, but few can deny that he's an intriguing {{Chessmaster}} who can match wits with the world's greatest detectives.
