* ButIPlayOneOnTV: When Matsuda has the Taskforce reenacting their story in [[SoapWithinAShow Soap Opera]] form, Matsuda worries that [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself Light is getting]] LostInCharacter. He's supposed to be playing "Hikaru", not "the Boogeyman."

* {{Determinator}}: deconstructed:
-->'''Matsuda''' (throwing himself against a door, repeatedly): You know… Duck… I don't think this is working…
-->'''Duck:''' I'm sure you'll get it eventually. The trick is to keep trying and to believe in yourself, then any task can be accomplished. Or so public educational television tells me.
* DevilInPlainSight: Kira.
** And Duck:
-->''Naomi just knew [Duck] had that look on Light's face that he got when something extremely unpleasant was about to happen. It started with [[PsychoticSmirk the creepy smile]] and then the creepy smile would grow into [[SlasherSmile a creepy grin]] and then [[RedEyesTakeWarning the eyes would turn color until they looked crimson]] (she wasn't sure of the physics behind that but it did happen) and then [[EvilLaugh he would laugh.]]''

* DumbassNoMore: After doing so much writing for his [[SoapWithinAShow soap opera]] Matsuda actually [[GenreSavvy gains a measure of understanding of what's really going on around him.]]
* DysfunctionJunction:
-->'''Naomi:''' I'm very sorry to everyone. My companions don't try to be idiots it just kind of happens. Sayu and I were put through very traumatic experiences; it's just for me, well… I deal with this shit all the time so it doesn't really bother me. For a normal person I'm sure what we went through would have left them shell shocked with only the ability to [[CornerOfWoe remain curled in a corner rocking themselves back and forth.]] So I'm going to apologize on the behalf of everyone here except for Takada who really did try her best, it's not her fault that [[TheFool he's dumb,]] [[BreakTheCutie she's traumatized,]] [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial I don't have problems,]] [[JerkAss he's an asshole,]] and [[EnfantTerrible he's the devil.]]
** Also:
-->'''Naomi:''' Saying you're [[AGodAmI god]] just because [[WellDoneSonGuy you don't]] [[LukeIAmYourFather like your father]] is [[IRejectYourReality not accepting reality!]]
* EnfantTerrible: Duck
* EnforcedMethodActing: In Matsuda's [[SoapWithinAShow soap opera]] Light is cast to play the character of "[[MeaningfulName Hikaru Imagay]]" [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who is gay]] and [[CasanovaWannabe L wants to help]] Light portray that more realistically...
* EpicFail: [[IncrediblyObviousTail Stalking: Raye Penber is Doing It Wrong]], as [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Light notes in one of his letters:]]
--> '''Light:''' Mr. Raye Penber is very annoying and doesn't know when to LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE. I realize it is his job to follow me around like a lost puppy but could he at least put a small amount of effort into not being so bloody noticeable? It's almost embarrassing having to look behind me every day and see him there standing oh so inconspicuously behind me with that newspaper shielding his pasty face. [[NewspaperThinDisguise Yes, I can see him behind that newspaper]] the eyes in my face indicate that I am not blind. Your fiancé should note this fact next time he comes tapping along behind me, which should be any moment now I might add. [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Here are a few tips I wish to convey to your lover boy, please feel free to tell him for me as I think it's counterproductive for me to tell him. Besides it would just point out how inept he truly is:]] 1) when following someone try not to walk so loudly and when they stop walking you stop walking 2) when following someone do not literally follow them at every single moment of the day this includes lurking outside their room in the dead of night 3) [[LimitedWardrobe do not wear the same clothes every day especially when on a high school campus not only are you noticeable you look completely ridiculous]] 4) when on a bus that is being high-jacked by a man with a gun do not show your victim your ID with your real name, if you have to use a pseudonym it's not unheard of 5) [[WithCatlikeTread everyone can see you whispering in the back of the bus your voice is louder than you think]] 6) don't tell your victim what day your shift ends; you never know when they might have been paying attention. 7) when wearing the same clothes every day do not wear a [[ConspicuousTrenchcoat blue trench coat]], you want to be mistaken for a drug dealer every time you take a stroll? 8) when glaring at your victim and their date try not to look so completely bored, if you are going for the 'pedophilic-stalker' look be sure to complete it otherwise you look stupid 9) walk at a distance far enough away that your victim can't instantly grasp the fact that he is being stalked 10) try to look like you're doing something besides following your victim people might start to notice. I could go on but I think this should suffice, once again I leave with the statement THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU AND YOUR PATHETIC USELESS BEAU WHO CAN'T EVEN STALK HIS VICTIMS PROPERLY!!! Thank you for your time.
** Light's porn.
** Mello trying to be intimidating and get [[ActionGirl Naomi]] to take him seriously.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Takeshi the heroin dealer gives Light a few free pointers on how to avoid getting drugged and [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raped]] by L.
--> '''Takeshi''' (to Light): Have you been watching what you drink, he's probably spiked everything you touch.
--> '''Light:''' I know he does, thank you for the advice.
* ExtremeDoormat: [[YourLittleDismissiveDiminutive Light nicknames Raye]] "The Wallpaper." Also Matt.
* FakingTheDead: L doesn't let his successors know he is still alive because he doesn't want to have to talk to them.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Naomi gets angry when [[spoiler: Raye goes missing]] and Light and Duck aren't concerned. She issues the following threats to get them motivated:
-->'''Naomi''' (to Light): ...when I kick you out that's where you're going! Roommates with Misa and Ryuk!
-->'''Duck:''' Why haven't we done this before?
-->'''Naomi:''' Shut up I'm not done with you either, if you don't procure his body you'll be forced into elementary school years before your time and I'll make you [[spoiler: bring Light Yagami to parent-day so you can profess what a wonderful relationship you have.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Matsuda wonders why Duck refers to Raye by his first name.
* FixFic: So far the story has loosely followed Death Note canon except that [[spoiler: Naomi Misora, Raye Penber, and L]] don't die.

** Ryuk and Light...
-->'''Ryuk:''' Yeah, Light's great.
-->'''Naomi:''' I thought you said Light was a bastard.
-->'''Ryuk:''' He's my bastard.
-->''Naomi stopped walking for a moment to contemplate the horrifying idea that she had misjudged Light's relationship to his clown god and was in fact the shinigami's bitch. Somehow that idea seemed more horrifying than the prospect that Light was probably painting an upside down star on her wall in red paint. She decided not to comment.''
* FramingTheGuiltyParty:
-->'''Near's Agent''': I can't just leave without [the notebook]!
-->'''L:''' Certainly you can, just say Light Yagami gave you the run around and that his soldiers were undyingly loyal. Also tell him that we just don't trust you. Near will buy that.
-->'''Near's Agent''': Are you framing one of your employees?
-->'''L''': It'd be framing if there was any way to convince Near that Light was not in fact Kira and somehow not giving you the run around. You don't have to tell him that Light wasn't actually here and never actually met with you.
* FreudianExcuse: "The Beyond Birthday case made so much more sense now, BB wasn't a megalomaniac he was [[FoeRomanceSubtext L's spurned and neglected lover.]] Clearly the jam was just the aftershock of being forced into sex with someone that looked vaguely like a crack head. And she had prevented him from burning himself alive, if she had to have sex with L she might have tried to burn herself alive too. Naomi noted to herself that perhaps it was a good time to go to L.A.'s prison and apologize to that poor madman."
* FreudianSlip:
-->'''Naomi''' (to L): You're just jealous that I'm in his pants and you're not.
* FromTheMouthsOfBabes: Duck shares with his mother the following observation about Mello:
-->'''Duck''' Look, mommy, his pants are tighter than yours!
* FromNobodyToNightmare: "She was beginning to think that Mello, [[GodwinsLaw like Hitler]], had failed at his previous profession. Instead of being denied art school admission Mello had failed at being [[CampGay a fashion designer and now insisted on dressing the Japanese mafia in his own designs and showcasing his masterpieces on his own effeminate figure.]]"
* TheGadfly: L. At one point he hits on Naomi just to piss off Light.
* GenreSavvy: Matsuda actually gains a measure of understanding of what's going on after doing so much writing for his [[SoapWithinAShow soap opera]].

* HetIsEw: Subverted, this fic is taking a break from the rampant [[SlashFic Slash]] (NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat).
* HookersAndBlow: Naomi suggests this is what L spent all his money on. His reply seems to suggest he wanted to [[MeddlingParents but Watari wouldn’t let him.]]
* HumanInterestStory: Poor Takada tries to interview Naomi and Sayu about their kidnapping. ''Tries.''
* HypocriticalHumor:
-->'''Light:''' [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude You are on the same wave length as cult fanatics and celebrities as far as naming children are concerned.]] You named [[spoiler: my son…]] Duck…
-->'''Naomi:''' You named [[spoiler: your son]] curtain.
-->'''Light:''' Naomi, don't interrupt.
* IAmNotMyFather: when Naomi is comparing Duck to Light and L.
-->'''Duck:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Are they supposed to be my role models?]]
* IHaveThisFriend: Light tells L and Naomi that Kira texted him informing him that he's "misplaced" his notebook, er so what should we do about it?
-->'''L:''' Light-kun, it's already obvious that you're Kira.
-->'''Light:''' No, I'm not Kira... And you look like a meth addict so no one will ever believe you.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: When L handcuffs himself to Light.
* [[IKnowKarate I Know]] UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}
* ILied
* IRejectYourReality: [[LamarckWasRight It seems Duck has inherited]] [[spoiler: Light]]'s art of denial. Upon learning that [[spoiler: Light]] is his biological father Duck decides he likes his mother's paranoid theory about him being [[spoiler: an avatar for the murder notebook better [[LikeFatherLikeSon and so he styles himself]] [[AGodAmI a God.]]]]
** {{Lampshaded}} again during one of Light and Naomi's arguments:
-->'''Naomi:''' It's like you have this belief that if you say things enough times they suddenly become true.
-->'''Light:''' I do not.
-->'''Naomi:''' I'm the god of the new world?
-->'''Light''' (''confused''): But [[AGodAmI I am the god of the new world.]]
-->'''Naomi:''' [[ShutUpHannibal No you're not.]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist I have good intentions?]] [[TheRival Raye Penber]] [[ExtremeDoormat is wallpaper?]] [[LooksLikeSheIsEnjoyingIt I don't get high off the murders of rapists and other murderers?]] I can keep going, you know, if I really want to.
-->'''Light:''' [[InsaneTrollLogic All true, I don't say them to make them true I just have to remind everyone else that they're true. If I didn't say anything people would assume that Matsuda's theories are correct, and I just won't stand for that.]]
-->'''Naomi:''' Yeah, completely buying that.
* IWroteOurStory: Matsuda's soap opera... sort of...
* ImNotHungry: L drugged the éclairs.
* ImStandingRightHere
-->'''Light:''' I think your successor thinks we have the combined I.Q. of Matsuda.
-->'''Matsuda:''' You guys know I'm right here.
* IgnoredEnemy: L, Naomi, and Mello get into an arguement in which Mello outs himself as the one and only transvestite terrorist-and becomes very miffed when neither L nor Naomi care enough to stop bickering because of it.
* InformedAbility: [[KnowNothingKnowItAll Mello's genius IQ.]]
* InfractionDistraction: while Light is killing criminals...
-->'''Naomi:''' What are you working on anyway, we both know you're Kira.

-->'''Naomi:''' Wow that is the most boring pornography I have ever seen. This is porn for you?
* InTheBlood: [[HypocriticalHumour Light]] declares that Misora's four year old son is EVIL!
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Naomi sees that Mello still believes he's menacing after getting his ass handed to him and she still thinks it's just sad.
* InsaneTrollLogic:
-->'''Naomi:''' [S]ince you keep claiming to be God this must somehow be your fault.
-->'''Light:''' I'm not sure that's how god complexes actually work, Naomi.
* IrritationIsTheSincerestFormOfFlattery: "The team looked at L who looked about ready to shoot himself at the fact that his successor had stolen his entire get-up. At least Mello had the decency to become a transvestite mafia lord for the sake of originality, Near was just a sad little chip off the old block."
* ItsAllAboutMe: L is even worse about this than ''[[AGodAmI Light]]'' and that's saying something.
* JerkAss: L, Raye Penber
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Light... [[YouWillBeSpared he spared Naomi and Raye in this fic-verse.]] [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial "Not about you" indeed.]]
* KidWithTheLeash: Naomi feels like this. She knows Light is a psycho [[MoralityChain but he could be so much worse...]]

* LawOfInversePaternity: [[spoiler: Duck and Light ''hate'' each other. Much to Naomi's [[{{Squick}} disgust]], Duck would rather have ''Ryuk'' as his father and he quickly latches onto the idea that he's the AntiChrist spawn of the ''death note'' as a more favorable alternative.]]
* LegoGenetics: Naomi theorizes that Light was mutated by his heavy notebook usage and [[spoiler: that he passed that mutation onto Duck.]]
* [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Licensed Sexist]]: Light
* LighterAndSofter: There are much fewer deaths of series regulars and Light/Kira is much more mentally stable in this ficverse "sticking to a diet of murderers and rapists" and doesn't [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope jump off the slippery slope]].
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: Light and L's bickering , {{Lampshaded}}.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: [[spoiler: Light and Duck.]]
* LiteralGenie: when Duck convinces Shidoh to do his bidding...
-->'''Duck:''' Right, well I asked him to find Schrodinger's Cat, he misunderstood the directions. I hope you like cats, he just keeps bringing them, I almost want to tell him to stop but I also want to see how far he's going to take this before he gives up. He's very tenacious for a half-wit.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Raye Penber

--> '''Naomi:''' [[spoiler: Your fault.]]
--> '''Light:''' [[BigWhat My what?]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Duck is a chip off the old block.
* MayDecemberRomance: Naomi is ten years older than Light.
* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: If anyone is going to destroy the world it's going to be Matsuda. Later Light tells L and Naomi that Kira told him that he has "misplaced" a Death Note.
--> '''Naomi''': Are you saying that we lost the notebook and that no one noticed? How could you lose something like that? That's like Roosevelt losing the atom bomb, woops it got stolen, guess we'll have to write that one off.
* MistakenForGay
* MistakenIdentity: [[spoiler: Mello and Matt are brought to the Taskforce in [[WigDressAccent a simple disguise.]] L, who never cared enough to know who the Wammy's kids were apparently buys their lame excuse, does not recognize Mello at all (instead insisting he must be Matsuda's character Hikaru Imagay brought to life). Similarly Mello has yet to realize that Ryuuzaki is his beloved L and takes to calling him "crackhead."]]
* MookFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Naomi talks to and bonds with Bubba over the fact that Mello dresses like a male prostitute.]]
* MonsterClown: Light shows Ryuk to Naomi, [[TooMuchInformation much to her annoyance]].

** [[OriginalCharacter Duck]] refers to L as "Uncle Pedophilia and Light as "Ted Bundy". Duck also renames Wammy's House as "Wammy's Dog Fighting Arena for Boys" and gives Mello and Matt new aliases- Mello is "F" (either for "[[Literature/LordOfTheRings Frodo]]" or "[[LoserArchetype Failure]]" his choice) and Matt is "D" (either for "{{Dracula}}" or "[[ExtremeDoormat Doormat]]" again, his choice).

* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: L gets very grabby around Light.
* NoSocialSkills: L, of course. "L had an annoying habit of speaking very loudly on his cellphone as if his conversation was far more important than anything anyone else could be doing.

* OnlySaneWoman: Naomi. She is very moved when Mello (of all people) realizes how very stupid it all is too.
* OpenSaysMe: averted when Matsuda repeatedly throws his shoulder against a door and it fails to open played straight when Light shoots the lock off and kicks the door down.
* OriginalCharacter: Duck
* ParentingTheHusband: or rather parenting the AxeCrazy StalkerWithACrush
--> '''Naomi:''' Light, wait up! You're going to put someone's eye out with that gun.
--> '''Light:'''That's sort of the idea.
* PathOfInspiration:
--> '''Duck:''' This is wonderful, now I can even start my own religion claiming to be an avatar of Kira's own god, and I'll be legitimate.

* ProdigalFamily: L, with good reason, is morbidly embarrassed by his successors.
* ProperlyParanoid: When Naomi is chatting with Light she finds it's something they have in common.
* PsychoticSmirk: Light and Duck. And [[SanitySlippage Naomi.]]
* PushedInFrontOfTheAudience: Thanks to Matsuda and Duck, Naomi and Sayu have to go on TV and [[HumanInterestStory talk about their kidnapping experience.]]
* TheQuietOne: Matt
* RealityEnsues: Naomi points out how L's whole setup is not practical for any situation other than the Kira case and overall looks totally ridiculous.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech
* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated: [[spoiler: L isn't dead but the computer thinks he is.]]
* RidingIntoTheSunset: parodied on Matsuda's soap opera "The Boogeyman" where the GreatDetective Y rides off into the sunset, again not bothering to tell anyone his name, and leaving his spurned and neglected lover Hikaru Imagay behind.
* RightInFrontOfMe: when the taskforce is talking about Mello in front of a (disguised) Mello. HilarityEnsues.
* RousseauWasRight: When Naomi attempts to teach Duck about ethics:
--> '''Naomi''': [Most people] believe that man is essentially good and ride upon that faith throughout life.
--> '''Duck''': That's a silly thing to believe. If I believed in the essential goodness of man I'd be [[VisionaryVillain Kira]] too and we certainly don't need two of those.
--> '''Naomi''': Duck, Kira is a serial killer who believes he kills the irredeemable scum of the earth. I don't think he should be your role model of men who have faith in humanity.
--> '''Duck''': He wouldn't bother if he thought there was no chance of redemption, he believes that most people have that spark of goodness in their hearts and only some are the scum of the earth. If he thought that all men were worthless he'd either do nothing or [[OmnicidalManiac he'd just kill everyone.]]
* SadisticChoice:
--> '''L''' If you're finally going to admit that you're Kira I'll have you know that so far your various futures entail your being my sex slave, the government's sex slave, or locked up in some mental institution. Of the three I prefer your being my sex slave but the decision is yours. Or Naomi-chan [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim could shoot you]] [[Comicbook/VForVendetta behind the chemical shed, if that's preferable.]]
* ScarpiaUltimatum: when L presses the issue of the above...
--> '''L''' So really the only options that we have left after we prove that Light is Kira are for him to be my personal sex slave or to be shot behind the chemical shed. Prove to ourselves at least, I don't think we'll ever convince Soichiro or Matsuda even with the thirteen day rule. So Light since this is your immediate future which would you prefer, death or sex slave?
* ScyllaAndCharybdis: Naomi relates how it SUCKS being stuck between L and Kira's warring egos:
--> '''Naomi''': You do realize that if L or Kira were to find out they would kill you... If Light finds out he'll probably kill you. However he might keep you around as a pawn and use you to reach his ultimate goal of creating a cult civilization in which he's god. That means that if you don't find yourself drowning in a swimming pool you'll find yourself brainwashed and tortured and then thinking nothing at all... If L finds you that's a whole different story. L won't kill you but he will tie you to a chair and leave you there to rot for fifty days and then pretend to execute you only to leave you alive so that the government can perform nasty experiments on you. He probably won't give you a trial but instead will leave you in a mental institution or have you killed off by thugs. [[TheAssimilator Then he'll steal your name and use it as yet another detective name]] and that will be the end of that.
--> '''Duck''': [[OnlySaneMan Why do you work for these people?]]
* SdrawkcabName: This fic mocks the overused "Imagay" fandom in-joke.
* SelectiveObliviousness: Raye Penber, Matsuda
* SheIsNotMyGirlFriend: Misa is most definitely not Light's girlfriend. He's not interested in L either despite L's many come-ons.
* SherlockScan: [[spoiler: Four-year old Duck [[PropheticNames Sherlock]] Penber shows he's already a very talented detective by deducing that Light is Kira.]]
* ShootOutTheLock: during the raid of Mello's base this is Light's solution to Matsuda's "door problem."
* ShoutOut: To ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' also a TakeThat
--> '''Light''': Those weapons of mass destruction are slippery little devils. I'm beginning to think that the notebook is secretly [[Literature/LordOfTheRings the one ring lacking both a dark overlord and a fiery Mount Doom in which to destroy it.]]
** And:
-->''For some reason Naomi found herself thinking of Film/TheGodfather, and the horse's head tossed into a bed. Except the horse's head was Matt's and it was Mello's leopard printed waterbed that was soaked in blood.''
** Naomi asks L why he thinks he's [[{{Franchise/Batman}} Batman]]. Mello seems to think he's Creator/SamuelLJackson.

* SissyVillain: Mello
* SlippingAMickey: L drugs Light and has his way with him.

* SmugSmiler: Light and Duck.
* SoapWithinAShow: Matsuda's soap opera which is very loosely based [[IWroteOurStory on the lives of the Kira Taskforce...]]
--> '''Matsuda:''' Well, Inamo it turns out had an affair with Y's evil twin A and that A is now back in town but Y doesn't want Hikaru to know because he's afraid that A will seduce Y because they're identical and it's really hard to tell them apart.
--> '''Light:''' And let me guess Hikaru is going to sleep with both of them because he's not only gay but he's also a whore.
--> '''Matsuda:''' Um, well, I don't know if I'd use that term but what if he really can't tell the difference and then… Wow Light, you have really good ideas! You should help me write sometime!
--> '''Light:''' You know, this is excellent proof that I'm not Kira. Ryuzaki may be miserable and death-seeking but if I had been Kira then surely Matsuda would be dead by now.

* SpitTake: Naomi with her coffee, repeatedly when Duck is asking about his parentage... and suggests that he really wanted ''Ryuk'' to be his father.
* StalkerWithACrush: Light towards Naomi. Also L towards Light:
--> "Light had been extremely careful and it would have been ridiculous to jump to the conclusion that he killed via notebook rather than magic bath towel. For months L had been convinced that Light had killed via bath towel, or magic shower soap, or just showers."
* StalkingIsLove
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: "Hello, my name is [[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign Hikaru]] [[SdrawkcabName Imagay!]] [[TransparentCloset My name is a play on my sexuality!]]"

* TakeThatAudience: or Take That Fandom. The Meta joke of Matsuda's soap opera, staring Hikaru Imagay the gay prostitute.

* ThereAreNoTherapists: After the LABB, [[JerkAss L refused to help pay]] for Naomi's therapy.
** Light's parents ''attempt'' to make him seek help from a therapist when his mental issues begin to become obvious after blatantly stalking an older woman and her fiance, crashing at their place, and refusing to leave. Light's parents concede that their son ''MIGHT'' just have a problem and should probably get help. Naomi notes that it's [[AxeCrazy a couple]] [[SerialKillerKiller of years]] [[PersonOfMassDestruction too late.]] Nor is there any therapy available for all the times [[DateRape L drugged and had his way with Light]]. [[TooDumbToLive But L did give him a gun...]]
* TheyWouldCutYouUp: L points out that even if he arrested Light as Kira the world governments wouldn't execute him right away. They'd want to ''study him'' first to see what effects long-term usage of the notebook has on a human body...

* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: It's Mello, bitch!

* TrojanPrisoner: [[spoiler: Duck does this for Mello and Matt.]]
* UnreliableNarrator
* VeryPunchableMan: Mello [[spoiler: (with Naomi doing the punching.)]]
* VillainsOutShopping: there's an almost domestic scene at Naomi's house where [[EvilOverlord Light]] and [[OverlordJr Duck]] are ignoring each other in the living room.
-->'''Naomi:''' I'm leaving, I'll be back later. Take care of yourselves and try not to destroy any furniture in your petty battles for world domination.
-->'''Light:''' My goal is not world domination.
-->'''Naomi:''' Light, you said you'd be god of the new world. What do you call that?
-->'''Light:''' A new era of enlightenment.
-->'''Duck:''' [[AtLeastIAdmitIt To save face and not sound like a jackass I'll be frank, my goal is world domination.]]
-->'''Naomi:''' Whatever. Try not to get any blood on the carpet.
* VivaLasVegas: Where Naomi kidnaps Raye to in order to get married.
* WalkingWasteland: Naomi argues that, hypothetically, Kira might be one of these and [[ItMakesSenseInContext therefore there really is no need for]] [[StalkerWithACrush L to be watching Light shower.]]
* WeCanRuleTogether: To placate Misa, Light and Naomi insist that Misa is Goddess of the New World and Naomi is more like secretary.

* YouHaveToBelieveMe
* YourCheatingHeart: Misa is Light's "girlfriend" but Naomi is the only one that Light has an active interest in ([[{{Asexual}} despite not having a sex-drive]]). Naomi [[spoiler: slept with Light once and he knocked her up.]] Naomi gets married to Raye while Light continues to stalk her, and meanwhile L continues to stalk Light.
* YourLittleDismissiveDiminutive: Light berates Naomi and her little [[ItMakesSenseInContext wallpaper / curtain.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook / OlderThanTheyLook: Naomi notes that when Light is Kira he carries himself like an old man and when he has relinquished his memories he suddenly looks and acts as if he's five.
