** The live action movies have another, subtle example. In the first film Light for the most part wears casual brown clothing, switching to all black in the sequel as he has fully embraced his Kira persona. He ends up wearing white once he loses his memory, then starts dressing in black again once it's back. Takada also starts wearing all black once she actively starts using the Death Note.

Added DiffLines:

* TheWorldIsNotReady: [[spoiler: L burns the two notebooks that once belonged to Ryuk and Rem. He knows that man cannot handle the power, even while knowing a Shinigami could bring a new one every time]].

Added DiffLines:

* ItsPersonal: At first, L is invested in the case because he finds it fascinating how Kira can murder remotely. Then he figures out that [[spoiler:Light manipulated Naomi into killing herself and Light's girlfriend]], and all bets are off.


* {{Deconstruction}}: To both idea of Death Note itself and the character Light Yagami. If the medium is the message, then this film series shows how terrifying it would be if people like Light Yagami exist in real life.

If the medium is the message, then this film series shows how terrifying it would be if people like Light Yagami exist in real life. [[WordsOfGod Shusuke Kaneko, the director of first two films,]] admitted that this was intentional since he not only wanted to show how dangerous to undermine the corrupting influence wielding such power, but also explore the Japanese youth's desire to have such. He also compared the use of the Death Note to how users attacked one another on message boards and blogs.

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/deathnotethelastname.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"Checkmate."'']]
* AdaptationalHeroism: Misa has more of a conscience than the original, and even comes to acknowledge Light's evil nature and her MadLove of him that, by her own admission, she just can't quit.
* AdaptedOut: Near and Mello do not appear, as the Light arc is the main focus instead.
* ChekhovsSkill: At one point, Matsuda says that although he's incompetent, [[ImprobableAimingSkills he's very skilled at guns]]. [[spoiler:This allow him to shoot Light's watch, which contained a piece of the 'Death Note' that he planned to write a name in, and then Light's leg, during the final confrontation]].
* CrazyPeoplePlayChess: [[AGodAmI Light]] and [[ProperlyParanoid L]] at one point.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Typically, when someone has a heart attack, they are either [[HollywoodHeartAttack screaming]], or silent. [[spoiler:When L has his "heart attack", he has a short conversation with Light, realizing that he is Kira before he seemingly passes away. This is a subtle hint to the audience that Rem's writing didn't kill him; rather, L wrote his own name in the Death Note to die after a time period, as a ThanatosGambit]].
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Demegawa]].
* LaughingMad: Takada pulls one off after [[spoiler:she is captured by the Investigation Team for being the third Kira]], and later, [[spoiler:Light after he rejoices in the notion that Ryuk can kill any of the Investigation Team members in a precarious situation]]. For the latter scenario, [[spoiler:a HoistByHisOwnPetard occurs instead, when Ryuk writes Light's name down instead]].
* NotHisSled: [[spoiler:L]]'s death from a heart attack appears to play out exactly like the anime and manga, where [[spoiler:Rem wrote L's name in the second 'Death Note' to prolong Misa's life span. When he has his heart attack, he falls off his chair and realizes that Light is Kira as he dies]]. However, the final confrontation reveals that [[spoiler:this wasn't the case, as L had already written his name in the first 'Death Note' beforehand to ensnare Light, causing Rem's writing to have no effect]].
* ObviouslyEvil: By this movie, Light is sporting sinister black attire, and yet no one assumes he's actually Kira.
* RuleOfSymbolism: In the final confrontation, [[spoiler:when Light is waiting for Sochiro to give him the Death Note after the former has written down the latter's name, the floor he's standing on has a chessboard pattern, symbolizing how he seemingly has the upper hand over the Investigation Team. However, when everything goes pear-shaped for him and Misa due to the Investigation having heard everything he's said, L reveals himself as alive, and sits on a chair that is lying on the same checkered ground, while revealing his ultimate plan that stopped Kira. That shows that L is now the winner instead of Light. Finally, when Light tries to use his 'Death Note' scrap in his watch, and fails, he ends up outside the chessboard-styled floor. This resembles a black chess piece being eliminated by a white chess spiece, solidifying his loss, and [[{{Foreshadowing}} his eventual death]]]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Demegawa, Sochiro Yagami and Misa Amane]].
* ThanatosGambit: At the end, [[spoiler:L writes his own name in the Death Note to die 23 days in the future to protect himself from Rem when he confronts Light. Watari still dies but Light and Misa are caught red-handed]].
* TreacheryCoverUp: At the end, [[spoiler:Light's family were led to believe that he died trying to stop Kira.]]
* VillainRespect:[[spoiler:Light's inner monologue, after he has seemingly killed L with the help of Rem]].
-->''"[[spoiler:So long, L. You've been a good rival to Kira, god of the new world. With a single mistake, I could have been the one to die. To set Misa free... and to have her use the 'Death Note' turned out to be a risk. Now watch my revolution succeed]]."''
* WhamShot: ''So many of them'' in the final minutes.
** Firstly, [[spoiler:due to circumstances carefully planned by Light, Rem is forced to use his 'Death Note' to extend Misa's life span by writing down names that threaten her life. He writes down a name, and it cuts to an elevator with Watari and Misa inside. The sound effect associated with the 'Death Note''s heart attacks occurs as the doors open, with Watari clutching his chest and silently falling, dead]].
** However, it turns out [[spoiler:Rem wrote two names to save Misa. The second was none other than '''L''', as the aforementioned sound effect appears again, along with a slow-motion shot of L and his chair falling]].
** After that, [[spoiler:Light appears to have beaten L, and retrieved his original 'Death Note' from Misa. He proclaims that loose ends need to be tied... '''[[{{Patricide}} by writing his own father's name to give him the second 'Death Note']]''']].
** When [[spoiler:Sochiro arrives with a suitcase supposedly having the second 'Death Note', Light gives him a eulogy towards Sochiro's impending death, and demands the second 'Death Note'. Sochiro opens the suitcase, and it turns out to be empty. This reveals that Sochiro wasn't affected by Light's writing, for some reason]].
** [[spoiler:The Investigation Team arrest Light and Misa, and a familiar voice calls out to Light. Light looks up and is completely shocked, [[NotQuiteDead as it's L]]]].
** [[spoiler:L then reveals that the 'Death Note' Light has is a fake, as L holds up the real one. He then allows Light to know his real name, as he opens up the 'Death Note' he's holding to reveal a recent, particular entry]]...
-->''[[spoiler:L Lawliet\\
Dies peacefully of heart failure, 23 days later.]]''
** Finally, [[spoiler:Light orders Ryuk to write down any name to take down the Investigation Team that have finally identified him as Kira. Ryuk obliges, and lets Light see the name he wrote down]].
-->''[[spoiler:[[HoistByHisOwnPetard Light Yagami]]]]''
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Misa ends up looking at L's face, getting his name due to her Shinigami eyes. She leaves, and Light happily declares to himself that he's won, because all he has to do is call Misa for this new information. End of film, right? [[spoiler:Wrong, as L, like the manga and anime, secretly pickpocketed Misa of her phone when the two met, and immediately has the Investigation Team arrest Misa]].

[-[[caption-width-right:350:'''Light Yagami:''' The law has its limits.\\
'''Shiori Kashino:''' Everything has limits.]]-]
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the original manga, Takuo Shibumaru (Light's second victim when he was testing the notebook out) was a lecherous asshole who sexually harassed a woman but never went further than teasing. In the anime, he was [[AttemptedRape trying to rape her]], likely so we wouldn't feel bad when he dies. Taken to an even more extreme level here, where he's a sadistic, remorseless murderer and ''definitely'' deserved to die.
* AdaptationalDyeJob: Misa has black hair, while Naomi Misora goes from having black hair to brown hair. Though you can't really blame them for Misa. Almost never will you find a Japanese person with hair lighter than dark brown.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: As Light calmly explains how [[spoiler:he got Naomi to kill Shiori, Ryuk throws one at him that actually gets Light to ponder his dark actions]] This causes Light to '''almost cry''' when he responded.
-->'''Ryuk:''' Light, do you know what? You're far worse than a god of death. Shiori truly loved you. Didn't you love her at all?\\
'''Light:''' ''(With watery eyes)'' I don't know.
* ChekhovsGunman: The bus that Light, Shiori and Raye are on, and which is also hijacked later on, has advertising of Misa Amane all over it. [[spoiler:Later on, she ends up receiving another 'Death Note' at the film's end]].
* ComfortingComforter: Soichiro tucks a blanket around L's shoulders when he encounters him sleeping upright on a sofa, despite the fact that L has been bending all his efforts to try to implicate his son for murder. The paternal gesture doubly speaks to Soichiro's character seeing as L had dozed off in front of panel of television monitors ''he was using to spy on Soichiro's family.''
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Naomi [[spoiler:kidnaps Shiori]] in the art gallery, they are standing aside a painting, Ekusuhso Kenak's Mask and Death. It depicts the Grim Reaper being stabbed by his own scythe, with the weapon being guided by many masks. [[spoiler:This is [[RuleOfSymbolism symbolism]] of Light eventually losing to L and the Investigation Team in ''Death Note: The Last Name'']].
* FreakOut: Ryuk, when Light tells him that he can't give him apples, as there are cameras in his house.
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: in the live action movie:
-->'''Lind L. Tailor:''' Kira, you yourself are a hypocritical, vile, and immature criminal.\\
'''Light:''' Immature?
* MythologyGag: In the ending, when L meets Light, his way of eating consommé chips brings to mind the infamous [[MemeticMutation "I'll take a potato chip and eat it!"]] scene from the anime.
* RuleOfSymbolism: After being threatened by a criminal in the opening scene, he throws away a book he has, "The Compendium of Laws", into a bin, before he notices the 'Death Note'. In other words, he discards his faith in the outside law for a new one that can allow him to take the law in his hands.
* SequelHook: Already expected, as it was advertised at the time that there would be a sequel, ''Death Note: The Last Name'', released in the same year. [[spoiler:A celebrity, Misa Amane, receives another 'Death Note', while Light meets L for the first time]].
* SilenceIsGolden: [[spoiler:Sochiro's scream of horror towards watching the surveillance footage of Shiori being shot by Naomi]] is done this way.
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: An actual American played Lind L. Tailor ([[spoiler: L's decoy]]). The news broadcast had a Japanese voiceover, but his [[DeepSouth Dixie]] accent was still clearly audible.
* {{Ubermensch}}: Light is seen reading Nietzsche's 'Beyond Good and Evil' shortly before being approched by Naomi Misora for the first time. In German even!
* YouDidntAsk: This is Ryuk's explanation for why he hadn't told Light why, if you have a Death Note, your lifespan is hidden from a human who has traded for Shinigami-sight (which allowed Misa to discover who he is).
