Worst Characters from the Anime Death Note

Before you read the list I want to assure you that I love Death Note and I just hate these characters.

The Top Ten

1 Misa Amane Misa Amane is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

Yeah no I don't want this comment to be me ranting how much I disdain, extreme understatement, Misa but wow I don't like her. I'm not joking she's on UMBRIDGE levels of dislike, yeah that's how far down the barrel that I've gotten to describe my feelings towards Misa. Although one thing good about Misa is that throughout the later parts of the anime she's gradually given less screen time, to the point where it's just silent cameos, as if the manga creators (and anime producers) knew that they had made a mistake with this character and were trying to fix it as best as they could. - Anonymousxcxc

Black Critic Guy must have Misa Amane aka Mia Sutton dominate his list of worst female anime characters. She is so overrated for being such a dainty, Angelica Pickles-esque brat. She is way too one-dimensional. I think the live-action version of Mia Sutton will not be different from the anime version. I think Death Note will be a live-action movie based on anime that will fall as flat as Dragon Ball Z: Evolution if not just because of the idiotic casting choices.

The most annoy character in here I liked Light I thought his mood made the show more interesting - donovanthorn

Hands down. She's so annoying! - Goku02

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

Am I the only one who supports Light?

He used to be one of my favourites until he turned evil :( Never particularly disliked him though. - Goku02

Well in a way he was always corrupted, he just thought that what he was doing was right and for the sake of justice. Even if what he did was completely in the wrong for most people, to him it was just doing what he thought was right. I guess in a way Light shows that the concept of good and evil isn't black and white, but rather an abundance of grays as both those who are "good" and "evil" are just doing what they think is right. It's all about perspective really. - Anonymousxcxc

You know, At the beginning I really liked light.but as the story progressed he became so twisted I hated him.Rem was right,"Light Yagami,you are truly disgusting"

He killed L ; - ;

3 Kyosuke Higuchi Kyosuke Higuchi is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

What's so bad about him (besides the fact that he became Kira in the middle of the series - venomouskillingmachine

4 Kiyomi Takada Kiyomi Takada is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

What I don't get is that Kyiomi is supposed to be proud smart but she is really dumb by being easily manipulated by Light. Most women would question themselves why a guy eventually contacted them. Also she acts smug all the time not realizing that Light was using her. Jeeez even Misa was aware of Takada's existence because Light told about her, meaning that she was always going to be the beard.

I hate her so much! I just wanted to wring her neck in ever one of her appearances!

I really don't understand why so many people hate Misa. Kyomi is SO annoying.

Kiyomi is such a follower of Light, and she’s too easy to manipulate. Not to mention she has no likeable traits. One could argue that Misa is also very easy to manipulate, which is true, but at least Misa has some funny moments and a personality that stands out. Kiyomi however, is extremely bland. Kiyomi just does what everyone else tells her to, and it’s so annoying. It’s like she has no real personality true to herself.

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

Absolutely loathed that guy - Metalblade94

This guy is still better than takada - NathanRiver666

6 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.

He is a failed attempt to make a badass character. Instead of a badass character, they made an annoying antagonist

He had so much wasted potential. I was expecting him to develop and redeem himself. He never did - NathanRiver666

Scuse me get the hell out of this list.

I hate mello his smug attitude his cliché I will beat my rival thing and how the plot makes it so he has to win and I was excited to see the moment he dies

7 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.

How come Mello's above Near on the list? I mean I don't hate Near (I only dislike him), but he was a much worse character than Mello

Misa Aname may be a one-dimensionally annoying, overly feminine, teenage, girly, negative brat who should permanently top this list, but Near has also been proven very weak.

He's just an L wanna be

I never liked Near. It just felt like he was trying to copy L all the time. The ending sucked and I think Near should never have existed and L shouldn’t have died when he did. L made everything interesting.

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

My second least favourite. SHE KILLED L! - Goku02

I liked her until she killed L

So overrated. She’s the reason misa was able to get away with being so annoying. Misa barely did anything for her, then this stupid thing becomes obsessed with her. Worst deathgod ever.

She was a good character, even as a shinigami she showed human qualities. I wish she wasn't so attached to Misa. It happened too fast - at first she isn't, but then is ready to protect her from Light.
I kinda wish she was L's shinigami, to be honest. - Kana79

9 Halle Lidner
10 L

He's actually more overrated than any other death note character, just because he died doesn't mean he was the best. L was just doing his job besides so many other people have also died unreasonably on Light's hand, not just L. So stop making him out as if he's some God, he's not. He's only loved MORE because people are bitter towards Light, misa, near and mello.

People on this site when they see their favourite character in a worst characters list no matter which rank they are in:"Lol wut? X is the best character. The hell you on? Get him off this list." Just because you like him doesn't mean that everyone else will as well.You must learn to respect their opinions. you saying to remove him from this list will do nothing whatsoever.

I understand people have their own opinions but L is liked a MAJORITY of people so..

so what?
