protagonist!? Screw that! He's more of an antagonist!!! gohanRULEZ 06:52, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't matter wether he is the hero or the villain of the story, but the fact that everything is told from his point of view makes him the protagonist. An antagonist is not always a villain, but simply someone who opposes the main character. Therefore Light would be more of a protagonist despite the fact that he may (or may not) be the villain of the story. Yoyoddd 21:16 (UTC)
Um shouldn't we make an extra page on the mantle of kira??? Because when i type kira it come's up here. I think we should have a page about being kira.AyyamS 03:12, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
the whole "from your viewpoint of justice" thing is unneccessary, as it does not influence the character in the slightest. he is the protagonist, and he is an anti-hero, by definition. your view of justice does not change the fact he seeks his view of justice in the manner of an antihero.
Personally, I don't see why people hate Light so much. I mean sure he's evil as Kira, but I bet a lot of those people would go on a psycho killing spree too. MasterTDI
well hes obbviously the protoganist because hes the lead charecter
Guys, he's not an antihero, he's a villain protagonist.
Could someone please fix the encoding stuff? Most of the character pages are engulfed in copies of the same wallpaper. --RadicalEdward2 03:06, April 4, 2010 (UTC)
Light never said he was God. He said he would become the god of the new world. There's quite a difference lads.

Actually, he later states that he IS God, and that no one can defy him. Mikazuki 18:08, March 20, 2011 (UTC)
same seiyuu and english voice actor to Setsuna F. SeieiEdit
Coincedentally, both Light's Japanese and English voice actors have also voiced Gundam 00 character Setsuna F. Seiei. Light's Japanese voice actor, Mamoru Miyano, has also won the "Best voice actor award" for this role. At the same time Light and Setsuna are voiced by Brad Swaile.

Light's crucifix position Edit
Anyone noticed how often Light makes this position?
Maybe not noteworthy to be added to the trivia, but I just thought it was interesting enough to point out. xD
It is noteworthy, go on and add it to the trivia
Also, Light stays very atheletically fit (maintaining a BMI of 17.1) and all he does is sit in his chair.
Raito = Light?
Raito = Laito = Lait = Light
L is represented as a R in japan. Lait also sounds like Light.
Funny fact: Yagami is backwards Imagay
I can't believe Light died *sobs* Edit
I know... Close to the end, I kind of wanted him to die. He clearly had became evil throught the manga. Like he didn't seem to really care about people anymore, like not caring about the death of his father and just randomly thinking about killing Misa... Right at the end it made me sad again though. I probably wouln't have if they hadn't shown him all young and trying to help the word. And his manga death was so unpleasant... He deserved it, it's still sad though... His death in the anime made me sad too :( I think it was mostly seeing L. I wonder if they could be friends? They wouldn't have to be enemies anymore, since the trial thing is over... Sorry for rambling ^_^ Mai Is Me (talk) 05:52, August 17, 2012 (UTC)
Could be Light's inteligence lower than L ? I have some reasons by demanding this :
Light had luck with these gods of death , Ryuk , and also used Rem to kill L and Watari , instead of L who hadn't a help like that and still could locate him and deduced that is Kira (he always know that Light is Kira but he couldn't prove this)
He just used Misa who is a mindless person, to kill them .
The intelligence attribute isn't something assigned by evaluating Light Yagami. It was sourced from the databook.

is light good or bad?
Gokuzko 19:33, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
That's really a matter of opinion, but I personally think that by the end of the story he's bad. Crime rates dropped and many criminals were killed, but that came with a price: the world's freedom & Light's sanity. 04:28, February 24, 2012 (UTC)
Could someone modify the contents? There is an invisible #12.Just sayin.
he died today
Light's Quote Edit
This quote should be added to Light's Page: "This is the first time in my life, that I've been provoked to hit a woman"
He's 178cm, which means he's 5'10.
