* L ends up in the reverse situation that Light was at the start of the manga: he is dying in less than a month, with a Death Note and a shinigami watching him so as to see the fun. Light had assumed he would have to pay consequences and wrote as many names as he could before Ryuk showed up. What does L do in the same situation? Burn the notebook and spend the rest of his limited time on solving crimes and settling his affairs. He expressly shows and tells Ryuk that he will not fall victim to the same temptation that corrupted Light. It shows that L, for his moral ambiguity, was not just a detective interested in the challenge but also in right and wrong.


** Light's side: When this film changed the InternalReveal scene with Naomi Misora, at first, was initially disappointing, but after TheReveal, it felt right and showed Light just as much a genius, just as manipulative and evil. To elaborate: when he saw Naomi at the train station after he killed Raye, he also noticed a paper she was holding that belonged to a wedding chapel. Then, when she met Light for the first time, she introduced herself as Raye's fiancé, which gave him the idea to go to that same wedding chapel where she and Raye were going to get married, and discover Naomi's real name. This is because he realized that no one uses fake names in weddings! He then orchestrated the entire art centre standoff [[spoiler:by writing both Naomi's and his girlfriend Shiori's name in the 'Death Note', and let the Investigation Team and L watch the whole thing to provide Light an alibi. And due to his girlfriend's intended murder, he gains his father's sympathy and gets to join the Investigation Team. Now, he has an opportunity to destroy them from the inside out]].

* What does Yuki Shien do to take on an entire armed police squadron headed quickly towards his way? Since he has the Shinigami eyes, he makes Ryuk take off all the officers' helmets, so that he can see their names, and writes their names in a 'Death Note' page already labelled with "sudden death"! In other words, he kills them all in seconds.

** L: After [[spoiler:Light has pulled a particularly vicious and complicated {{plan}} with the dual aims of removing himself from suspicion and getting onto the Kira task force, this is apparently successful until L introduces himself to Light while very conspicuously and portentously eating a pack of chips of the same flavor and brand as Light used to conceal a mini-TV that allowed him to continue being Kira even while being under surveillance. The implicit message, that L knows exactly who Light is and what he did, just can't prove it yet, is not lost on Light who pulls a wonderful "oh shit" face.

*** You see, he had to pick a brand of potato chips that was so horrible that there was no chance anyone else would grab them before he did. And in the movie at least, L caught it, and bought a bag of those exact same horrible chips.
