Those who forget their history are bound to repeat it. Stare into the abyss and the abyss will stare back. Light learns this too late to count...
Hypocrite provides examples of:
- Back Story: the narrative relates a Yagami family vacation to Germany.
- Chronic Villainy: Light might have recognized the hypocrisy of his actions but he's already set in his path.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Light is sickend at the thought of being compared to Hitler.
- I See Them, Too: Ryuk informs Light that he sees L too.
- The Not-Love Interest: Light reflects that his annoying, sibling-like relationship with L was the closest he'd ever come to love.
- OOC Is Serious Business: L is impassioned as a ghost as he never was in life. This more than anything else convinces Light that this is serious and this is real.
- Stalking Is Love: Light is flattered that L might be stalking him from beyond the grave.
- Through the Eyes of Madness: when Light starts seeing L's ghost following him around, Light begins to question his sanity.
- Would Be Rude to Say "Genocide": Kira prefers to call his villainous actions "justice."
