This page shares its image with Memes.DeathNote.

How about Gauron instead: http://full-metal-panic.e-monsite.com/pages/biographies/gauron.html

Failing that, there's probably some appropriate image from Umineko no Naku Koro ni, or some good picture from a horror film (can't think of any right now, though).

Edit: Better picture.

Edit 2: Local picture, maybe too much of a smile:

+1 for Guaron provided one better isn't suggested.

No, the other one.
Another vote.
Check out my fanfiction!
"Perfect"? High praise.

Dunno, smirks don't show teeth; that's a Slasher Smile I think. This is a "devious little smile".

Doesn't really say "smirk" to me either.
please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.

Does this say smirk?

^The bottom panel, yes.

Why? It says that way more clearly if the whole page is there. The relevant part ("Duke Julius died!") would be legible even if it were half that size.

Not sure why there are only anime/manga suggestions so far, though. What about, like, Arnold Vosloo in The Mummy? Or more smirky and more psychotic? There are lots of examples on that page.

I'm okay with both 2 and 9. The lighting and distance in 11 mean I can barely see any smirk, let alone a psychotic one.

Looking though stuff on the page (yikes, X Just X, That Is All, Sinkhole Chaining, Zero Context Examples, Weblinks As Examples...), there's also Loki of Thor, Isard of Star Wars if you can see her smirkiness properly, and Alex of A Clockwork Orange.

Alucard has quite a few smirks in this blog post.

Or panel 4 of this strip, possibly with text from panel 2.

And though someone over at the IP discussions thread brought up that there are too many TF 2 images, there's also Scout.

I also like 9 and Loki from 12.

I like Imhotep if we can find a clearer image—he looks really good. Alucard looks good too.

Meanwhile, I wiki-sized Griffith. Here's the full page, and the relevant panel alone.

The one-paneler looks rather well.

I like the Griffith suggestion...either the full page or the single panel would be fine. Here's a couple others: Lelouch, Gendo.

I really like 16.1.

I like the Loki one. Alex is also good, but it almost seems like a better example of Kubrick Stare.

Too subtle?
I still prefer the current image. Why not just change the Memes.Death Note page image? There's tons of memes to choose from.

Just As Planned is pretty much the iconic Death Note meme, though. (...the four iconic Death Note memes, I think, actually.)

I think Loki is best so far. Alex's smirk is a little subtle combined with the Kubrick Stare, Griffith is too dark, and Gendo doesn't read as psychotic so much as Smug Snake.

I found some more of Jack Hyland: [1] [2] (I favour the bottom left of the second page.)

...Actually, I'm pretty sure the iconic Death Note meme is "I'll take this potato chip...and EAT IT!".

That's the second. The third is keikaku means plan.
"I'm an odd person that likes to write odd people." - JHM
Well, I think that image could just as easily be changed. I'm very happy with the current image.

Found another one, but it might not be clear enough.
