YMMV: Light and Dark The Adventures of Dark Yagami
  • Ass Pull: the Life Note, each special ability of the Royal Death Note, Naomi's true identity... Dark's magic cellphone is both a metaphorical and literal asspull.
    • Although the Life Note is fairly common in Death Note fanfiction and appeared in the manga pilot in the form of a Life Eraser.
    • The Everything Note enables Dark to become king of the world, destroy all "nuclears," and go back in time.
      • "HE HAS A DARN EVERYTHING NOTE! THAT TIT IS TAKING THE PISS NOW!"
    • A Teleport Note enables Hal Linder (who is inexplicably male in this version) to teleport into Dark's house.
    • A Ghost Note enables L to come back as a ghost... even though ghosts don't "exits".
    • The Pain Note in the spinoff series lets Raye put anyone in pain. The Sick Note appears to do the same thing too. Neither one actually advances the plot once the author has exacted his insane "revenge" on canon characters. Both are just lying on the floor when needed. Ditto Near's Blind Note.
    • The Talk To Dead Dudes Note and the even more utterly unhinged Talk To Not Dead Dudes Note which mysteriously just float up from the bottom of the sea.
    • The Anti-Life Note is then Asspulled out to Retcon the previous Asspulls. Except it apparently doesn't work.
    • In what must be the one of the oddest Asspulls ever, Creepy Dude gets a Secret Death Note, which can't be detected by "Death Note radars"... from a volcano God.
    • Hell, the very existence of a "Death Note radar" is an Ass Pull.
    • The Blind Note apparently exists solely as a reason for Light to hate Near (see Kick the Son of a Bitch).
    • The Reset Note Does Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
    • The Debu Note - a "fat note" from a Japanese sketch show - gets a Shout-Out.
    • There are "Sex Notes". What they do is unclear, but they seem to give TIOSEFAJ blonde hair and a killer rack. In the epilogue, it's mentioned Samanther/ Light's Mom has a sex note but it's not a Note, merely a book where she's written down people she wants to have sex with. Dark/ Soichiro being the only name on it so far.
    • The Shield Note saves people written down from the nuclear bomb that destroys the world. Yet there are some characters who inexplicably survive without the use of one, so it's effectiveness may be in doubt.
    • The original canon says that there can only be six Death Notes in the human world at one time. As you can see, the fic stamps all over this rule, although it can be partially explained by the various notes not being ''death'' notes.
  • Badass Decay: Most of the characters in the story suffer it in some form but Light definitely suffers the worst from it.
  • Black Hole Sue: Dark Yagami.
  • Canon Defilement: most of it. L randomly getting a Life Note is particularly bad, though.
    • The author admits that he changed Naomi from being Japanese to being British because it would make the story cooler.
  • Cargo Ship: "She locked at near. 'You just thinked about making a laddie out of lego and sexing it.'"
  • Crazy Awesome: Blud's description in chapter 13, just read it: "Standing over him snarling and dropping bits of blood and slobber was a fierce dude with twenty feet tall. His blood mowhawk was blooder than ever and there were dead peeps stuck to the spikes screaming in pain. His tooths had been sharpened so they were all sharp and bumpy like a saw and strong enough to chomp bone or concrete or even diamond but he didnt eat them cos they were pricy. He was wearing a coat of armer made of lava with guns and swords and cannons stuck to it. He was driving a motorbike and it was powered by nuclears which made it faster." Plus the 17 crossbows, stuck together with blood and "duck tape"!
    • Every last page, word, punctuation mark, and space in this story positively exudes this trope. Never before has this much insane awesomeness been seen in one location.
  • Critical Research Failure:
  • God-Mode Sue: When Dark becomes King of the Shinigami, possibly even before.
    • Sayu
  • Ho Yay: Light and L.
  • Les Yay: Sayu/Misa, Takada/"Desk Lady", Naomi/Night.
  • Mary Sue: Dark Yagami: Somewhere between Villain Sue and Jerk Sue; and Night Yagami, whose skin is made out of death notes and who has Shinigami eyes and ears. She's also prophesied to "sign" the song that ends the world.
    • And as it turns out, Dark is his own father.
  • Narm: Many lines in the story. Here's an example.
    “YOU HAVE LEANED WELL FROM ME!”� he whispered like moldy bread. “LEARNED WELL LIKE A FOX WHO WENT TO SCHOL AND DID WELL AND THEN WENT TO COLLEGE”�
  • Shocking Swerve: There's usually one per chapter.
  • So Bad, It's Good: So many Asspulls and pointless rambling asides about how macho Dark is that they somehow become massively comedic.
  • Tear Jerker: Blud's emotional final words when he meets his end at Dark's hands
    “BEFORE I DIE DO ONE THING FOR ME! GIVE”¦”¦ ME”¦ A”¦”¦ BLOOD ”¦ B”¦A”¦N”¦A”¦N”¦N”¦A”¦N”¦A”�
    • A relatively straight example: “I HAVE KILLED MY ONE TRUE SON! NOW WHO WILL I TAKE TO SOCCER PRACTISE?”� “My deer father. You are bestest dad a dude could have.”�
    • Dark almost remembering Samanther's name...
  • Thirty Sue Pileup: It's quickly turning into this thanks to Night's cloning machine.
  • The Untwist: Chapter 23.
    And in Darks room was”¦”¦ DARK! DARK YAGAMI! DARK FRIGGING YAGAMI YOU GUYS!
  • The Woobie: Ruyk. "Why can't I eat a blood banana?" Practically everything he says could end ";_;"
  • Villain Decay: Light starts out acting as Kira, but quickly takes a backseat to Dark, who also later inexplicably stops being villainous.
  • What an Idiot: After successfully sniping Light dead in the park, L found a Life Note and "accidently writ Light in it."
    "THIS DUDE CKIRA IS ACTUALY A KIRA! HE HAS A DEATH NOTE AND SOMEONE TOLD ME A CAR EXPLODED AND HE WAS THERE DANCING WITH A DEATH NOTE"
    " It could be a coinsidense." L said back munching on pixy sticks. "these things happen all the time."
    • That actually isn't an example of What an Idiot, since it was revealed that "L" was actually Dark disguised as L, and was purposely ignoring CKira's activity.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?
