Ron The Death Eater:
The AU depicts L and Watari as evil child abusing bastards and Beyond Birthday and Adopting and Adapting fem!Light ( Not Blood Siblings who go to school with the rest of the Kiras) as innocent children. The text makes a big deal over the fact that even a professional criminal like Wedy thinks L is being a bastard for trying to "reclaim" Beyond and split up the Yagami family.
In Mello is an inconsiderate All The Way Jerk Ass that demands that Fem!Matt become a Honey Trap for Kira. So when Light Yagami is a perfect gentleman and treats her like a goddess it's all too easy for Fem!Matt when it's time to betray one of them that she chooses to side with Kira.
In L doesn't really care about detective work or wanting to solve the Kira case. No, all L really wants to do is rape Light.
All You Need Is Love In Roger the caretaker of Wammy's House is the The Art Of Drowning Big Bad behind the Ancient Conspiracy and is behind the deaths of many people, including his daughter and children under his care.
In Matt was such an Blonde Ambitions abusive Jerk Ass to Mello that Mello finds Light (who he knows to be Kira) to be preferable boyfriend material.
Light gets this in where he's Brilliance Tarnished turned into a rapist and later L tries to rape him in revenge.
In Light's father Soichiro becomes an Constant Temptation Axe Crazy Abusive Parent, Dirty Cop, and raging homophobe who had Light's past boyfriends killed and this is what really drove Light into becoming Kira. This also gives Light a Freudian Excuse.
Mr. Yagami is the resident homophobe again in . However, he's portrayed A Cure for Love more sympathetically or at least with more complexity than in some examples. Though he is prejudiced he is well-meaning and he does genuinely care about his son
and gives his life for him. But because his son has written him off as "against him" and "evil," he doesn't care. Mr. Yagami gets this again in . This is even Death Note The Abridged Series Kpts4tv Lampshaded in a meta moment when Souichiro mentions that he got kicked out of the Death Eaters because he insisted on using a gun. In this abridged series Souichiro is characterized as a homophobic Abusive Parent Axe Crazy Pyro Maniac Gun Nut. " I Have No Son. I have two daughters." He seems really eager to get rid of his kids, tries to crush Light's unmentionables with his ESP powers, and when Sayu gets kindapped he's about ready to "cut his losses" until Light convinces him otherwise and even then he only decides to rescue her because he believes that she's been impregnated with alien spawn and intends to sell her into medical experimentation. Also, he's burned down a building for insurance money which resulted in the destruction of a nearby orphanage. It's pretty clear where Light gets his crazy genes. Also Aizawa becomes this within the space of an episode- he wants to violate Misa (though to be fair so do the rest of the taskforce), he got his own daughter pregnant, and it's revealed he pushed Sachiko down the stairs while she was pregnant with Light. Though at least some of this can be attributed to Aizawa being possessed by Souichiro's ghost. Also Near is a Shinigami and leader of the invading force that's conquering the Earth and has set Light up to take the fall. Light is also subject to this trope because this version is killing celebrities instead of criminals. Matsuda and Ide also get this in The Epilogue when Matsuda fathered eight children with Sayu and Ide becomes a serial arsonist because who is still in a coma no one gets his name right and he still gets no respect even after working on the Kira case. Matsuda has also effectively doomed the world because he didn't let Light
kill him. In Light and Misa don't want to go to Death Note The Abridged Series Team Dattebayo McDonald's and so Mr. Yagami decides to shoot them.
Souichiro: Pray that there's a Taco Bell in Hell!
Later it's revealed that Souichiro is very upset when he fails to kill them... because he missed.
Sourichiro: What kind of cop am I? I can't even shoot my own son in the face at point-blank range.
Light: That's okay, dad. The important thing is that you tried.
This Death Note AMV makes it look like Naomi poisoned her fiance.
presents Depraved Near the Necrophiliac.
turns Easy Wedy into a rapist.
On a Russian Death Note fansite that has since disappeared there was one L/Light fic called Family Guy which was an AU where Sachiko was Kira because she wanted to "help" her husband fight crime and was worried about him working late. Light and Sayu find out and help her to evade capture. Light becomes just as ruthless as his canon persona but it's all out of a desire to protect his family.
In the Slash Fic Yamamoto, Light's friend from school and Fever Dreams a minor character who doesn't get much characterization in canon becomes Light's abusive ex-boyfriend.
In Mello's Gods Of This New World goal seems to change from "stopping Kira" to just wanting to make "two worlds... burn." Also Matt becomes The Load to Mello and Near, being utterly useless for anything other than playing video games and eating their food.
Lampshaded in the fanfic parody when Light suddenly becomes a rapist The Human Whose Name Is Written In This Fanfiction Domestic Abuser in the L/Misa fic.
-one of a million fics in which L Investigation coerces Light into having sex with him in an attempt to get him to confess to being Kira.
In the fanfic parody L seems to think that rape is an acceptable alternative investigative technique, L's Proof much to the horror of the Japanese police.
In L sexually assaults Light in the name of science.
Lab Specimen In L is a Lawliet Eleison Bastard Boyfriend and keeps his prisoner, B, as his own private fucktoy.
In the AU Light inherited Lies On demon blood from his mother and she encourages him to kill criminals (though she is considering his need to feed and is unaware of his identity as Kira).
In Souichiro becomes an Light and Dark The Adventures of Dark Yagami Axe Crazy Rabid Cop that swears on a regular basis. In one scene, he interrogates Mikami by holding a knife to his neck like The Joker. Souichiro is later
revealed to be the Villain Protagonist Marty Stu Dark Yagami, thanks to Easy Amnesia and Time Travel, so Dark is his own father. Then there's the shocking plot twist that reveals that Light is actually Blud the Shinigami and . Also L Omnicidal Maniac who wants to kill everything and everyone simply because he can is responsible for the events that lead to the start of the series. His goal was apparently to create some sort of detective version of
Outer Heaven, by creating a world where crime and Kiras would always exist, and thus, the world would always need detectives. In L isn't satisfied in just collecting genius orphans in his search for a successor and with help from Watari begins kidnapping and disappearing genius children from around the globe and putting them through reckless testing and experimentation. Many are My Stupid Reality Driven to Suicide and those that return are like Empty Shells.
In Light got his murderous inclinations from his mother.
Parental Influence In Souichiro takes the side of the rapist police officers, Sex Note absolutely refusing to believe that any police officer could ever abuse their authority.
In Souichiro is a homophobic The Shinigami Wing Deal Jerk Ass, Mikami becomes a kidnapper pedo-rapist, Misa is very stupid, and L is more interested in getting into Light's pants than solving the Kira case.
In L is given this treatment at times. He doesn't actually do anything worse than what he's done in canon (well, the part about kidnapping an innocent bystander for the sake of confidentiality is new); if anything, Story Of The Century his personality seems frostier and sometimes even crueler, and he comes off as a Smug Snake and a Bad Boss towards the rest of the task force. It reaches a point where his To be fair, the story is told from Heroic Sacrifice at the end earns him the treatment one may get from crossing the Moral Event Horizon instead. At least until after he dies. Original Character Erin's perspective, and her relationship with him is pretty rocky, so that may color his portrayal somewhat. On the other hand, he also develops a Sugar and Ice Personality and has his share of sympathetic moments too, and is ultimately proven to be a tragic figure of the same caliber as
Light and Misa. Speaking of, Light and Misa try to kill Erin, an innocent girl who confronts them just as Light is in the process of writing his own father's name in what he thinks is Misa's notebook. It's assumed that Light might have gone on to kill everyone else afterwards had he not been thwarted. From their standpoint, it Actually, it might be accurate to say that for L, Light and Misa, this trope along with was probably justified, but still. Draco in Leather Pants are zig-zagged with each other.
In Light shoots a Sweet Company Mary Sue with a gun. As Lampshaded by the Sporker, this is very Out of Character because 1) this is the same guy who, in canon, wouldn't accept a handgun for self-defense, 2) Light is not the type of villain to Kick the Dog just For the Evulz 3) Light has more effective means of killing people. Also L Took a Level in Dumbass so he may be more effectively paired with the Mary Sue.
In Matt is a womanizing douchebag that makes Those Who Stand For Nothing Fall For Anything Light's Jerkass tendencies look nice in comparison. Later in the story L physically abuses and rapes Light.
Light Took a Level in Jerkass in . Yes, he's a killer but in canon he's a bit more Vacancy discerning with his targets than he is here- at least at this point in canon Light usually goes after murderers and such, and he's not so far gone that he'd just off someone for annoying him; but in this fanfic Light kills Misa before even meeting her. He just saw and heard the screechy blonde celebrity on TV and found her annoying, so he killed her.
In Near is a A Visit To Wammys House Creepy Child and Yandere for L who spends his time sabotaging Mello's projects to keep him in second place and making Voodoo dolls of Light because he's jealous of the attention L gives him.
Here's another fic where Soichiro becomes an Abusive Parent: , in which Souichiro regularly beat Light and Sayu throughout their childhood. It's also implied What Is Justice? he had their mother killed. This fic makes another Ron The Death Eater with the surprise plot twist where .
sweet little Sayu becomes Kira In the AU Dark Fic L was wrong about Light being Kira—he was innocent—but Wrong years of every kind of abuse has brainwashed Light into thinking he must be guilty otherwise there would be no purpose to all the pain he went through. L is devastated when he learns he tortured an innocent but Watari just wants to cover the whole thing up.
