The lifespan humans can see with Shinigami Eyes only appears in a number system recognisable to Shinigami and just looks like random numbers to a human.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathIsALoser: While powerful and unable to be harmed by human means, most Shinigami are lazy and bored beings that only try to extend their lives and do nothing with the lifespans they've taken, some even dying because they forgot to do so. Ryuk is one of the few to be proactive, and they consider him strange for it.


Added DiffLines:

* DeathIsALoser: Considered a loser among the Shinigami, being a goofball almost running out of life because he lost his notebook.


* BlueAndOrangeMorality: ''[[CaptainObvious Of course]]'' Shinigami have no problems killing humans or with humans dying. Shinigami take human lifespans for themselves. [[HorrorHunger Why should they care about the human world beyond it being their food source?]] In fact if a Shinigami ''does'' care about a human, that means they "failed as a Shinigami", and ''that'' is punishable by death.

* DealWithTheDevil: Any deal made by a human with a Shinigami is going to end badly for the human every time. Is the death god offering you a Death Note to play with? You can be sure that the death god will write your name in his own notebook and steal your remaining years [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness once he gets bored with you]]. Is he offering you Shinigami eyes so that you can use your death note without needing to find out your victims' names? Say goodbye to [[CastFromLifespan half your remaining lifespan]]. Hell, just finding a Death Note and giving it up without ever using it may well earn you an immediate death by the Shinigami just because you're boring for not playing his game. If you encounter a Death God at all, your only chance of not dying young is to be so impossibly beautiful that the Shinigami falls in love with you.

Is he offering you Shinigami eyes so that you can use your death note without needing to find out your victims' names? Say goodbye to [[CastFromLifespan half your remaining lifespan]]. And the very worst part: using a Death Note even once will bar you from heaven or hell when you do eventually die and is a guaranteed one way ticket to CessationOfExistence. Hell, just finding a Death Note and giving it up without ever using it may well earn you an immediate death by the Shinigami just because you're boring for not playing his game. If you encounter a Death God at all, your only chance of not dying young is to be so impossibly beautiful that the Shinigami falls in love with you. At the very least, Shinigami are honest and up front about the price of what they offer.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassGods: While they're called gods, they're little more than immortal supernatural parasites who are for the most part infinitely selfish, and kill humans indiscriminately to feed on their lifespans to keep themselves perpetually alive. They don't answer prayers, they don't do anything positive for humans at all, and they only use their powers to advance themselves. In fact if they do anything to help a human, they are severely punished for going against their nature. They don't even do anything worthwhile with their infinite lives, they just play games among themselves and idly observe humanity. Whether or not they exist as a cosmic balancing force to keep humanity from growing out of control is never suggested or considered.
