Great Characters Wiki

L Lawliet is one of the hero antagonists of the Shōnen Jump manga/anime series, Death Note.

Upon discovering a mysterious serial killer that goes by the name "Kira" who is secretely a high schooler named Light Yagami, world's greatest detective L Lawliet seeks to uncover the identity of Kira and bring him to justice. Upon meeting Light Yagami, L becomes suspicious of him, and seeks to prove that Light is Kira.

Why He Rocks

  1. He is a very intelligent and observant detective who has managed to solve many complicated cases, and has managed to track every single one of Kira's hidden traits. He has also managed to identify Kira's personality, and figure out that there's a second Kira.
  2. He's also very skilled in hand to hand combat. Especially when he kicked Light in the face while being handcuffed to him.
  3. He is very hilarious, as he does goofy and childish things while trying to crack the Kira case. Like how he creepily stares at Light in a theater, and eats a large amount of sweets while he's working.
  4. He's also very stealth when it comes to taking and hiding things. Like when he snatched a phone from Misa when Light was attempting to call Misa to tell him what L's true name is.
  5. He's also great at concealing his identity. Like in the beginning where he kept his face and name hidden from being revealed to Kira.

Bad Qualities

  1. He can at times be rather ruthless to the people he's interogating. Like how he put Light and Misa in captivity for fifity days straight while not showing the slightest concern of them.
