Aka: Kira

Gender: Male
Hair Color: Brown
Rank #5
Rank #8

Armed with the power of Ryuk's Death Note, Light Yagami is cold, calculating and self-righteous to the extreme, believing that he alone is able to rid the world of corruption and evil. With precisely-calculated moves, Light strategically manipulates friends and foes alike, no matter who he hurts – or kills – along the way. Above all else, Light's supreme confidence fuels his ongoing obsession with defeating L, his intellectual equal and rival.

Always secretive as to his true identity, Light is known simply as 'Kira' to the rest of the society – including his father, a detective assigned to investigate the ongoing, high profile murders.

I both liked and hated Light, but in the end, I liked him more than I hated him because if I found myself in possession of a deathnote, like him, I'd use it to kill criminals, because in that case specifically what he did was completely justified

An egotistical maniac.

Y'all have to realize this man killed anybody who commuted any sort of crime like "oh you stole a sucker from a gas station? Well that's a heinous crime so I guess I'll murder you"

He's a great anti-hero and an amazingly well written character but god I hate his personality and huge ego, I hated the way he treated poor Misa too.
