Death Note II: The Hidden Note is a Flash Forward Fic of Death Note that takes place nineteen years after the original. While at an orphanage, a boy named KJ is given a box on his eighteenth birthday. Inside, he finds a letter from his mother telling him who he is. What follows is a story of revenge against the man who was responsible for his father's death.

  • Amazing Freaking Grace: During Angela's mother's funeral, the song is played on the bagpipes.
  • Author Avatar: William Cattlefarmer. The first one KJ meets when he comes to Canada and they end up being good friends.
  • Badass Normal: KJ grabs Ryuk and slams him up against the wall when he didn't tell him where Angela was. Who else has ever attempted to do that before, much less gotten away with it?
  • Batman Gambit: Most of KJ's plans depends on people acting the way he thinks they will. Which they often do.
  • Exposition Fairy: Ryuk is this at times. Mostly near the beginning when he's telling KJ about Death Notes and Shinigami.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Near comes to the conclusion the new Kira has this in store for him, since the new Kira knows who he is, has the Shinigami eyes and hasn't killed him yet. He turns out to be right.
  • Fourth Wall Psych: KJ seemingly asks the screen if it agrees with him and a second later we see that he actually just got up close to Ryuk's face.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: Near seems to do this when he realizes He held the actual Death Note in his hands some time ago and put it back.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: By the end of the first chapter, we find out Light and Misa died before the story begins.
  • Over Protective Dad: Angela's dad has two bodyguards follow her around at all times. Justified considering the last time he left her alone it resulted in his wife Rebecca's death.
  • Story-Breaker Power: KJ was born with eyes of the Shinigami. He could easily kill the one responsible for his father's death, but he has a better idea...

  • Switch to English: In the third chapter, KJ and Ryuk are speaking in Japanese. That is until William talks to him in English. It's then assumed that English is used from then on.
  • The Tape Knew You'd Say That: The dvd the SPK get from the new Kira was split into two parts. Because he knew Near would get angry when he mentions how he was reponsible for his wife's death.
  • Tranquil Fury: When Near hears that the new Kira is responsible for his wife's death, he gets really angry.
  • Translation Convention: In the first two and a half chapters, it's implied that the characters are actually speaking Japanese. Even though to us, they only ever talk in English.
