top 45 most popular death note characters


Death Note is an all-time classic. A show that happens to be the introductory anime for a lot of you out there. And that’s why fans love and talk about this series even to this day.


However, what makes this anime so beautiful is the vast cast that the story has to offer. And that’s why I have decided to list down the Best Characters in Death Note.


I know most of you aren’t even able to remember more than 15 characters in the series. However, keep on reading this list and you will be experiencing a nostalgia train that you didn’t know you needed.


I hope you enjoy it.




1. Light Yagami


light yagami


Light Yagami is the main character of the anime series Death Note. He is a talented and intelligent young man who is corrupted after obtaining the Death Note, a notebook that can kill anyone whose name is written in it.


Light decides to use the notebook to rid the world of criminals, and his actions are eventually known as the work of “Kira.” His ultimate goal is to create a new world that is free of injustice, populated only with honest and kind people, and he becomes known as the “God of the new world.”


Light is known for his intelligence and calibre as an individual, making him a fan favourite and admired by a ton of people who have watched the show. Needless to say, people loved him so much that he became the star from his anime. 




2. L




L is a famous detective who endeavours to capture Kira, a mass murderer. During his investigation, he grows suspicious of Light Yagami and makes it his goal to prove that Light is Kira.


He is a slim, tall, and pale man with messy black hair, black eyes, and noticeable shadows beneath his eyes due to insomnia. He wears a long-sleeved white shirt and blue jeans and prefers to be barefoot.


L is very private and only communicates through his assistant Watari, using a capital letter L drawn in the “Old English MT” or “Cloister Black” typeface to represent himself. Other than being a genius, L is also known for his sharpness, deduction skills, as well as dry humour.


The dry humour particularly is something that goes unnoticed but does deserve some love and respect from fans of the series. His character brought the charm that the show has. 




3. Ryuk




Ryuk, a Shinigami, drops a Death Note into the Human World to relieve his boredom. Light Yagami finds the notebook and uses it to rid the world of evil and injustice, which satisfies Ryuk’s need for entertainment.


Despite finding Light interesting, Ryuk does not actively assist him and only helps when he has something to gain. Ryuk is intelligent but easily manipulated by Light due to his desire for entertainment.


He has a fondness for apples and video games and experiences withdrawal symptoms without them. Ryuk has always highlighted the fact that at the end of time, it will be Ryuk who will be taking Light’s life no matter what. 


And in the manga as well as in the anime, this phenomenon has taken place, making Ryuk a remarkable character from a narrative standpoint. 




4. Misa Amane


misa amane


Misa Amane, a successful model and actress, becomes the Second Kira after acquiring a Death Note. She approaches Light Yagami, the original Kira, to show gratitude for killing the man who killed her family and to pledge her assistance.


Misa’s Shinigami Eyes enable her to uncover L’s true identity, and she devotes herself to aiding Light. Although Misa has a sunny personality, witnessing her parents’ murder has affected her psyche.


Misa is often considered reckless with the powers that she was bestowed. It wouldn’t be incorrect to say that she adds flavour to the story with her presence since her personality adds randomness to a rather calculated franchise. 



5. Mello




Mello, one of the two successors of L who was raised in Watari’s orphanage for gifted children, becomes fixated on capturing Kira and proving himself as L’s rightful successor after L’s demise.


He chooses not to collaborate with Near and decides to locate Kira on his own, departing from the orphanage. Mello is willing to go to any extent to catch Kira, such as abducting Sayu Yagami and planning the deaths of most of the SPK members.


He even tries to coerce the US president into providing him with financial and material assistance to aid his pursuit of Kira and avoid Near.



6. Matsuda Touta


Matsuda Touta


Touta Matsuda is a young member of the NPA and Japanese Task Force. With black hair, brown eyes, fair skin, and an average height, Matsuda initially lacked experience but later became a valuable asset to the team.


Despite his brash attitude, which can hinder investigations, he excels in infiltration and has impressive marksmanship skills. Matsuda is a risk-taker who is willing to take chances, even if he recognizes the benefits of Kira’s new world order.


Despite facing many dangerous situations, he remains loyal to the Task Force and continues to serve the NPA once the Kira case is resolved.



7. Near




Near is one of the successors of L, characterized by his exceptional intelligence, keen observation skills, and cunning nature. However, he lacks social skills and struggles with interpersonal interactions despite being highly perceptive.


Although he appears childish, Near is obsessed with solving complex puzzles and approaches investigations with a similar mindset. While he maintains a calm and composed demeanour, his emotional range is more evident in the manga than in the anime.


Near is emotionally distant, sensitive, and relies heavily on others. He greatly admires L and models his investigative strategies after him. He is also recognized for a very unique approach to his detective methods.


More specifically, Near is known to love toys and he inculcates them in his deduction endeavours time and time again. This adds a layer of personality and charisma to his character. 



8. Rem




Rem is a female Shinigami who gave Misa Amane a Death Note. The original owner of the Death Note was Gelus, another Shinigami who sacrificed himself to save Misa from being killed.


Rem delivered Gelus’ Death Note to Misa, whom she actively assists despite viewing most humans with contempt. Rem is willing to risk her life to defend Misa, but her actions are seen as improper for a Shinigami.


Her skeletal appearance includes long, spinal cord-like arms and bone-like skin, with light-blue features, except for the anime where they are purple. Her actions lead to a story we wouldn’t have expected.



9. Jeevas Mail


Jeevas Mail


Matt, an accomplice in the Kira case, is a character in Death Note who prefers staying indoors and enjoys video games. He is rarely seen in the anime and only appears during Kiyomi Takada’s kidnapping.


Despite knowing little about Shinigami or killer notebooks, Matt still goes along with Mello’s plan to pursue Kira. His personality is relatively normal compared to the other Wammy’s kids, and he has become popular in the fandom despite only appearing in sixteen panels of the manga.


Matt’s brown hair and green eyes are hidden behind white goggles, and his attire includes a red and black striped long-sleeved top, blue pants, black gloves, and black boots.



10. Mikami Teru


Mikami Teru


Teru Mikami is a prosecutor who is handpicked by Light Yagami to become the Hand of Kira, a vigilante who punishes criminals. He is described as an attractive young man with shoulder-length black hair and a penchant for business suits.


Mikami possesses a strong sense of justice and believes in punishing evil, which makes him an ideal candidate for Light’s plan. He also has an obsessive personality and follows a rigid daily routine.


Mikami appears to be afflicted by some form of mental condition, as evidenced by his habit of saying “delete” whenever he writes a name in his Death Note.



11. Misora Naomi


Misora Naomi


Naomi Misora, a former FBI agent and fiancée of agent Raye Penber, begins investigating Kira after he kills her fiancé and the other FBI agents assisting L. She comes across Light Yagami, who slowly gains her trust by suggesting that she could help catch her fiancé’s murderer.


Light asks for Naomi’s identification, and he uses the Death Note to kill her by writing her name. Naomi’s body is never found due to the specifications made by Light in the Death Note.


Her character ended fairly early. However, for as long as she was there in the story, her contributions were amazing.



12. Yagami Souichirou


Yagami Souichirou


Soichiro Yagami is a prominent character who serves as the Chief of the National Police Agency and leads the Japanese Task Force and is also the father of the main protagonist, Light Yagami.


Soichiro is a responsible and serious man who values justice and cares deeply about his family and colleagues. During the Kira investigation, he strongly believes in his son’s innocence and even resorts to abducting Light and his girlfriend to prove it.


When his daughter is kidnapped by the Mafia, Soichiro struggles to balance his duty as a police officer with his obligations as a father. Eventually, he chooses to make the exchange as Sayu’s father.



13. Aizawa Shuuichi


Aizawa Shuuichi


Shuichi Aizawa is a highly intelligent and serious member of the NPA and Japanese Task Force in Death Note. While he is respected by his colleagues, he is also sceptical of L’s methods and often challenges the basis for his conclusions.


Aizawa’s wife Eriko and daughter Yumi miss him due to his constant work schedule, which has caused marital problems. In the series, Aizawa is the first member of the Task Force to suspect that Light is Kira, and he stops Matsuda from killing Light in the final episode.


Although Aizawa leaves the Task Force briefly, he returns before L’s death.



14. Penber Raye


Penber Raye


During his investigation of Kira, FBI agent Raye Penber, who was engaged to Naomi Misora, decided to cease his investigation of high school student Light Yagami after following him on a date.


However, when Light and his date Yuri were taken hostage on a bus by criminal Kiichiro Osoreda, who demanded financial reports of the amusement park they were headed to, Penber saw Light write a note to his date and realized his true identity.


Penber then revealed himself as an FBI agent and prepared to take action, but Osoreda became frightened upon seeing the Shinigami Ryuk and started firing at him. Before Penber could apprehend him, Osoreda ordered the bus to stop and fled the scene.



15. Wammy Quillsh


Wammy Quillsh


Watari, whose real name is Quillsh Wammy, is a significant character in Death Note. He has white hair, and grey eyes, and is L’s handler and logistics supplier to the Japanese Task Force.


He is also the founder of Wammy’s House, an orphanage for gifted children in Winchester, England, where he trains and sends out children with special talents into the world. Watari is skilled in espionage and marksmanship and wears disguises when necessary.


Although he has been a fatherly figure to L since his time at Wammy’s House, he acts as L’s butler in his role as his handler. Watari represents himself with a Cloister Black “W” on computer screens and is known for his fondness for Earl Grey tea and dislike of dirty rooms.



16. Shidoh




Sidoh is a Shinigami whose Death Note is taken by Ryuk and eventually ends up with the Mafia. Despite wearing clothes that obscure his features and being described as “cowardly,” Sidoh is persistent in chasing what he wants, such as his Death Note and chocolate, which he loves.


With little time left in his life, he hopes to retrieve his notebook quickly and eventually track it to the Mafia. To get it back, he agrees to help Mello’s gang against the Japanese Task Force and Near’s SPK.


Death Note 13: How to Read describes him as being intimidated by humans, particularly Mello.



17. Jealous




Gelus is a unique-looking Shinigami who, unlike most of his kind, has a kind and caring personality towards humans. He fell in love with Misa Amane and used his Death Note to save her from her destined murderer, knowing that he would be punished for extending human life.


As a result of his actions, Gelus gave his life to protect Misa and was reduced to dust, leaving behind only his Death Note. His appearance is doll-like, with a patchwork body of mismatched fabric, blue and white skin, a yellow left eye, and small, torn cloth-like wings.


Rem delivered his Death Note to Misa as it was she whom he saved, as she feels it is right.



18. Takada Kiyomi


Takada Kiyomi


Kiyomi Takada, a former classmate and girlfriend of Light Yagami, became Kira’s representative on the NHN television station due to her belief in his ideals. Described as an intelligent and graceful woman, Kiyomi had gained a reputation as “Miss To-Oh” during her time at university.


Her beauty and poise made her very popular with viewers, but her strong sense of pride also made her desire to be the centre of attention. This led to a rivalry with Misa Amane, whom Kiyomi believed was unworthy of Light’s affection.


Another character that seems to be a bit underrated.

Soon after, Shibuimaru dies in a motorcycle accident caused by a truck collision. Light experiences guilt over his death, as Shibuimaru was not a criminal. While the manga depicts Shibuimaru and his gang harassing the woman, the anime portrays them attempting to assault her.
