* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Raye Penbar. Ironically, showing his relationship with his fiancee [[spoiler: shortly before he's killed]] was probably meant to inspire sympathy for him. For many readers/viewers the effect was just the opposite when they saw his treatment of her as controlling and misogynistic.

Added DiffLines:
*** Because him killing adults [[SarcasmMode was much more justifiable]].

* PossessionSue: When FanFic writers get ahold of Light Yagami it's usually this along with a side order of VillainSue and MaryTzu. ** L can fall victim to this in fanfic, too. Sometimes both him and Light at the same time.

** Near, along with Mello. [[TheyChangeditnowitSucks Some fans are not fond]] of L's succesors. In fact, Near gets even more bashing than Mello, and even [[WordOfGod the author]] said that he was more and more unlikeable as the story went on.

* FauxSymbolism: The apples. The artist assumed they were there for their religious significance, but the writer just put them there [[RuleOfCool because he thought they were cool]]. [[WordofGod So he claims, anyway]].

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Happens to some people, due to [[CrapsackWorld the dark and cynical atmosphere]], BlackAndGreyMorality, 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.

Just correcting a spelling error.
** Manga: [[VillainProtagonist Light Yagami]] is a brilliant, egotistical student who finds the titular [[ArtifactOfDoom Death Note]] and soon embarks on a quest to become [[AGodAmI the God of a "perfect" world]] he will create. After killing multiple criminals with the Note, the {{narcissist}}ic Light flies into a rage when a man denounces his public name of "Kira" ([[SerialKillerKiller "Killer"]]) on TV and gleefully murders him on the spot. Once FBI agents investigate, Light kills them as well, revealing himself to one to [[EvilGloating gloat]] and later gleefully forces the man's fiancee into suicide. Later, to eliminate his chief pursuer and rival L, Light pulls a MemoryGambit where he has he Death Note given to a man he knows will misuse it and pulls off a scheme that kills multiple people, including L. Light contemplates killing his own sister when she becomes a liability and only relenting for the scrutiny it will draw. Not even lovers are immune, as he uses one of his [[YourCheatingHeart two lovers]] as bait for another rival and forces her to burn herself to death, also eliminating any evidence along with her. When exposed, Light attempts to justify himself as a WellIntentionedExtremist, but is [[VillainousBreakdown revealed as]] "nothing more than a crazy SerialKiller."

* StrawmanHasAPoint: In-universe, crime rates drop 70% worldwide and wars come to an end as Light's work goes on. Those in dangerous or crime-ridden places might find themselves agreeing with him, or at least forgetting that he plans to move on to killing lazy and unproductive people afterward.* SuperlativeDubbing: This is considered one of the best anime dubs ever, though arguments still occur over which is superior.
