Top 10 Saddest Death Note Deaths

The Top Ten

1 Death of L

Why did L not simply ask Soichiro Yagami to check his family and his son’s browser history when Light was at school? Would it not reveal him looking up the names of criminals that recently were killed with heart attacks? Not to mention, should the time of death have been recorded for deaths occurring before Light experimented with time of death, it would be stunningly close to the time and date Light looked it up(recorded in his browser history). If L got a permit for bugging and putting cameras in the house, how could he not get a simple search permit? He could have solved it that much sooner by doing the same in every household with a law enforcement employee and at least one school aged student within. In addition, Light’s habit of locking himself in his room during the time of the heart attacks would further incriminate him.

L was such an inspiring and amazing character, and many fans agree with me too. He was intelligent and cunning, and always knew the rival's moves which lead him to reach closer and closer to solving the mystery. It broke my heart when he fell off the chair, and Light ran to save him, as his blank eyes actually showed some emotion in them before they glazed over.

He died to save humanity. He was a good guy, and good guys never deserve to die. He also was honestly the best character, after his death, the story line became stupid because it was just about Light's success at being 'L two'

Well OF COURSE L's would be the saddest. He's my favourite character! And I don't like Death Note as much as I used to before L's death. Naomi's death is the second for me.

2 Death of Light Yagami

I cried for days after watching him die. He realized he f-ed up, and then dies in the claws (hands? I don't know) of ryuk and Near on the staircase representing that he can not go to heaven or hell, as he is in the middle of the stairs. Light is by far the character I cried for the longest time for in death note.

It's terrible because I feel that when he was dying, he finally realized what he'd done wrong and that he shouldn't have killed L, who was actually his best (and only) friend.

Light I feel bad that he died not one of my favorites but I appreciate his wits to the very end

I believe light represents what most of us would do if we were corrupted with a godly power.

3 Death of Naomi

That is when I started to hate Light Yagami.

Light Yagami's death made me so satisfied

I felt like some part of me new this was going to happen but I hoped and hoped that I would not but unfortunately it did I could not stand light after this

4 Death of Soichiro Yagami

He died believing that his son wasn’t actually Kira, and he never wrote a full name in the Death Note, so his soul rests happily in peace.

Bro, this was super duper sad. Even if Light said he would kill anyone to get his goal achieved, deep down he did care for his dad, L, etc.

It's sad because he died a proud father. Proud of his son. But it turns out that Light is in fact Kira. A father's dream is dead.

And light didn’t really care...

5 Death of Raye Penber

This was terribly sad.

6 Death of Mello

Mello was my favorite character.I wanted him to win! Anyways,he helped Near with catching Kira.Without him,I tink Near would not catch him. His personality is like mine. He is the chocoholic just like me...I think he was misunderstood... He deserved much more! I hate Takada! His death scene was so heartbreaking and schoking to me...

He was my favorite character, better then near

L’s was the saddest one in my opinion but Mello should by higher up! I thought Mello’s death was one of the sadder ones! It was sadder then Naomi Misora. This should be at least number three.

I hate Takada so much

7 Death of Watari
8 Death of Rem

I love Death Note and I am extremely sad about how it all ended.

Killed by love, probably the saddest death in any anime.

Rem was fantastic I love her character she was very interesting tbh and the way she gave her live was sad to me

9 Death of Takada Kiyomi

She had a bright future and the way she died was bad tbh bc her own lover planned her death and her partner did as well which is sad bc I appreciated her from the beginning tbh

It’s kind of sad she couldn’t tell Light was using her. I thought it was obvious

10 Death of Misa

I love Misa from when she was very introduced she def has my favorite knowing that she committed suicide makes it soooo sad bc she was funny and rlly talented

I think it's one of the saddest is because she was dragged through all of this mud because of Light. She was dumdum but still bruh

She most likely committed suicide after death of light

You call it saddest! for me it's the happiest death of death note!

The Contenders

11 Death of Hirokasu
12 Death of Aiber

He died in front of his son whos like 7 or something

13 Death of Matt

Matt's death showed us the significance of Kira. Mindlessly killed for a dumb reason. By far the most heartbreaking part of the entire show.

14 Soichiro Yagami

He in my opinion was a great model of a dad, and all Light wanted him to do in he last moments was to write of Mellow...


15 Death of Near (alternative)

All though I didn't really care about Near, and thought he's just a recreation of L with white hair, it is decently sad anyways.

16 Death of Lind. L. Tailor

very sad he died a day early it was to soon for him

17 Death of Mikami
18 Death of Matsura
