Death Battle Fanon Wiki
I'm gonna use the rules of the Death Note to my advantage. I already know that if I write down a cause of death I've six minutes and forty seconds to record the conditions and exact time of death. First, I need to know exactly how far I can go in terms of specifying the details of death. This should be interesting.
~ Light Yagami

Weaknesses and Faults[]

  • The Death Note cannot kill someone if their name is misspelled.
  • The Death Note has many restrictions on who it can kill. Click here for the full list of rules: [1]
    • It is unable to kill any being that is not a human ("The human whose name is written in this notebook shall die").
    • Light/Kira needs to know both the name of his target and who the target looks like. This is so the Death Note does not kill multiple people with the same name. Light was initially unable to kill L because L used a fake alias: sharing his name with pop-star Hideki Ryuga. If Light attempted to kill L, but accidentally killed Hideki, then L would know that Light is Kira.
    • The Death Note will not affect those under 780 days old or over 124 years old. The Death Note will not kill someone already 12 minutes away from death. The Death Note cannot kill someone at the time after they died from a different form of death.
  • The entire Death Note will be rendered useless under certain circumstances
    • If a victim's name is misspelled four times. (this victim will be freed from the Death Note as a result, unless the misspelling was intentional)
      • If this misspelling is done 4 times intentionally; the owner of the Death Note will die.
    • If Light loses possession of the Death Note for 490 days.
    • The Death Note can still be burned or destroyed.
  • Light himself is 100% human and so can be easily killed if he is unable to react against his assailants: especially if he doesn't know the name of his enemy.
    • The Death Note (and its pages) can be stolen: making Light vulnerable.
    • Light needs to maintain his alias as Kira hidden; since Kira admitted to committing crimes of assassinations and genocide.
    • Light needs time to write names: meaning he can be easily rushed if attacked by multiple opponents.
  • Light cannot undo the deaths he declares in the Death Note. He can alter how they die, but cannot stop the death of that individual: even if the name is erased, scribbled, written over or whited-out or if the page or book is burned or destroyed. If someone's name is written in the book they WILL die within 23 days after their name was written.
  • Using the Death Note exiles Light's soul from Heaven and Hell: they will go to a void of nothingness called Mu.
  • The Shinigami (Ryuk) that gave a human (Light) their Death Note is allowed to kill that human for the simple reason of disliking them.
  • Using the Death Note drains Light's lifespan.
  • Arrogant to a fault
  • Suffers from a god complex.
  • If someone gets the better of him he loses focus and his composure


  • Was eventually discovered and caught.
  • Was killed by Ryuk's Death Note.
