* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Happens to some people, due to [[CrapsackWorld the dark and cynical atmosphere]], GrayAndGrayMorality, and the fact that AnyoneCanDie. The cast does not offer many characters one can truly root for; what few sympathetic ones there are either killed off or ground into the dirt, if indeed they get attention at all.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Many, many fans would like to forget that [[spoiler: Rem kills L.]] Others like to ignore the bits involving Near and/or Mello. Some even take that a step further and pretend the second season as a whole never happened. And there is yet another group of fans who would very much like to believe that [[spoiler: Light won and/or lived.]] And that's just the manga, there are those that much prefer how the movies went (though few would include L Change the World in their continuity).

Some even take that a step further and pretend the second season as a whole never happened. And there is yet another group of fans who would very much like to believe everything that [[spoiler: happened afterward, considering Light won and/or lived.]] And that's just to have remained L's partner instead. Some ignore [[spoiler:what happened shortly afterward, L's death]]; some accept the previous spoiler, but reject everything that occurred after it; some accept everything until the ending of the series, when [[spoiler:Light is killed]]. Complicating things further, the anime (slightly) adjusts the manga's ending. [[spoiler:Light still dies, but he dies]] with slightly more dignity, managing to escape but then [[spoiler:getting killed by Ryuk, who doesn't want to be bored while Light's in prison. In the manga, there he has a FreakOut prior to his death]].
** There
are those that much prefer also fans who don't like the FoeYay added in episode 25, to the point of pretending it never happened.
*** A small fandom accept it as fanservice while a bigger one hate
how the movies went (though few would include it made L Change the World look like he accepted defeat.
** Many fans are displeased by and choose to ignore how {{Word of God}} interprets Light and L's relation, and such,
in their continuity).How To Read.

Added DiffLines:

* RecycledPremise: Paranormal elements aside, Death Note is a story about brilliant yet secretive student committing crimes "for the greater good of society" and slowly becoming a megalomaniac in process, all while playing mind games against a genius detective [[spoiler:(which eventually get him in trouble and his worldview brutally shattered in the end)]]. In other words, it's pretty much a modern, more fictional version of Dostoevsky's Literature/CrimeAndPunishment.

* EscapistCharacter: Light is handled well enough to be this rather than a VillainSue.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Light defends his usage of the Death Note by citing how wars have ceased entirely since the rise of Kira. Aside from this one comment, the intriguing prospect of Light using the note to end global wars is never elaborated upon.

** Apparently, Hideki Taniuchi is a big fan of IDM scene. ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhU8tOypxac Taikutsu]]'' borrows the main riff from ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAkgUeJDgQ8 Turquoise Hexagon Sun]]'' by Music/BoardsOfCanada, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXOCFn9jtx4 Near's Theme]]'' is pretty much an instrumental rendition of Music/AphexTwin's ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-Pkx37kYf4 Nannou]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRKtdYfpYI0 Suiri]]'' sounds suspiciously like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i524g6JMkwI Cliffs]], another track by Richard D. James.

* IronWoobie: Soichiro Yagami. He's the most decent man in the series, but he has to suffer due to his son’s and L's actions. [[HeyItsThatGuy Pun]] [[HilariousInHindsight not]] [[Series/IronChef intended]].

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Even plenty of anime fans mistake it for {{Seinen}}. The original manga was published in ''Magazine/ShonenJump''.
** To be fair, the rating on the English release of the manga says for "OT" (Older Teens). This should be the first thing you look at before reading.
