Added DiffLines:

** Even if that was the case, Mello and Near just being figments of Light's imagination means that he literally went to Yellow Box Warehouse, telling the Task Force to follow him, with no obvious reason whatsoever for doing so. They most certainly would have questioned his actions. Not only that, but he also mentions Mello and Near several times to them, and they mention them several times to him. No one shows a hint of confusion that would probably follow if Light started talking about two supposedly imaginary people.



to:

** Light is a sociopath who was bottling up his real self behind a facade for years. His mental state literally drops from its highest, most triumphant point to its lowest, most horrified point, realizing that [[spoiler: ''he's lost.'']] It's not the first time that Light has had such outbursts of insanity, either.




to:

** And then...he uses the Death Note to do what? Maybe kill a few people that he wants dead, but Near made his disgust for humans believing themselves to be divine clear.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Near and Mello are not real]]
You most likely know that Light is '''ABSOLUTELY FREAKING CRAZY'''. As such, it's quite possible that he could hallucinate. So Mello and Near might not even be living, breathing people: they're make-believe people Light hallucinated.

However, this brings the question: Why would he hallucinate two detectives trying to catch Kira? Answer: [[BloodKnight Because he wanted an enemy to fight.]]


Think about it. He's 18, but still looks and sounds like a child. Also, it would make sense if he's to be kept in the same role L was; getting involved sexually or romantically with someone could cause...problems. So perhaps he was castrated at an early age to prevent those problems and distractions.

(Perhaps Matt and Mello managed to escape this because they were in a "control group" of intact boys, or were deemed "too old" for castration to be effective.)


** Also, for a series that has a lot of Biblical nods and references, it was eunuchs who killed the [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen queen/cult-leader]] Jezebel. Near is the one who ''orchestrated'' kidnapping of Takada, even if he didn't do it himself.

* Similar to the idea of L having Asperger's mentioned above, Near's phenomenally high intelligence, seeming inability to take care of himself (How To Read ranks his "ability to live everyday life" as almost zero, and refers to Lester as his guardian) and odd, almost obsessive habits suggest that he might have a form of Savant Syndrome similar to that of the Rain Man.

* Just something to keep in mind about autism/savant theories: Not every socially inept person is autistic, and not every autistic person is a genius savant.








Both of them seem to have an AmbiguousDisorder, and were raised as child prodigies.

Added DiffLines:

* So going by this, L's full name is Lawliet River?


...is because shortly after finding out L was dead, he somehow ended up time traveling with The Doctor, and after a few adventures, The Doctor brought Near back. Four years too late. Instead of having the Doctor bring him back to the proper time, Near decided that the situation wasn't bad at all, and started his investigation from there. So while he tells everyone he's seventeen/eighteen, he really is only thirteen.

* A brother of my best friend is autistic, so I did get an impression of the behaviour of persons with autism: And after Near`s very first appearances in the manga, it was practically canon for me, that he was aperson who experiences autism. Especially in the scene, when he and Mello learn about L`s death and Mello gets freaked out completely, while Near doesn`t even seem interested in the conversation and keeps solving a puzzle. Also I recall one scene, in which he builds a perfect model of a city out of dices (if I remember rightly, it was San Francisco). These passages seem to imply that he is indeed an autistic savant. However: In my opinion, most of the time, he doesn`t act like an autistic person would and has abilities such a person wouldn`t have. (e.g. he seems able to interpret facial expressions). So my guesses are: a) I`m mistaken, because said brother suffers from a very severe form of auticism, while Near might be implied to suffer from a less severe one. b) Ohba-san did not have the chance to get in touch with autistic persons and/or portraying him as a person with autism was getting too complicated/in way of telling the story
