Top 10 Death Note Antagonists

Top 10 Death Note characters who where against Kira / Light Yagami. Note that during the period Light had no memory of him being Kira, he began helping L to pursue Kira, so at that brief time the characters who were/and supported Kira (Higuchi and the Yotsuba Group) were the antagonists instead of the protagonists.

The Top Ten

1 L

Everyone loves him. But, is he really the antagonist?

Wait? Was L really the antagonist

L is awesome. no one can say that he isn't. I HATE Near! - llamabaconllama37

2 Mello Mello Mihael Keehl, universally referred to by the mononym Mello, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

Got to love that chocoholic badass!

Chocolate bear rules once again. :/

Armin Arlert has evolved into a sexy chocoholic badass. HOORAY!

Well, theoretically, he DID beat Near through his death.

Realistically, NO. But he was still useful during the Kira case, so excuse me while I go into a corner and cry.

(Y U DIE SENPAI WHY T_T)

3 Near Near Nate River, exclusively known by the mononym Near, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

I like L but I do not relate to him as much as I do with Near. Near is my favorite characters (besides Light) because he is so interesting to watch - from his analytical skills, strange thinking-methods and habits, or just his philosophy and wisdom. Near is extremely serious, unlike most children, yet he still plays with toys (in a stimulating way of coarse). I can't exactly describe what I like about Near but I can describe him as being an old child in a teens body. - glkm998

Top antagonist (against Light) because he actually managed to get Light and get him killed (curses to you Near! I hope you died a painful death! )

I never liked L as much as the other fans did but I did really like Near. Near was a very serious-looking analytical character. Thanks to him (and Mello) they revealed and killed Kira. Although, I do think Mello is a bit useless, he did contribute a few of his skills.

I love L, I Love Near. I don't get why so many people hate him :(

4 Naomi Misora Naomi Misora

She was an idiot.

Naomi Misora was a retired-detective who tried to stop Kira as justice for her fiancé. As resulting she lost her life to Kira just as her fiancé did.

5 Rem Rem Rem is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

I don't know if Rem is a guy or a girl but the sinigami killed L ='(

6 Light Yagami Light Yagami Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

Why is Light not even on here? He is the series' main antagonist! Just... Why? Why? Why?
