    Default Who is Light Yagami?

    I'm starting this thread with the question, 'Who is Light Yagami?' What do you think of him, (personality wise), and how would you sum up his character? We all know he's a genius, but how do you feel about him as a person? If you met him in reality, would you like him, or would you hate him? Give me your feedback...

    Oh, i'd hate him. I see through people like him all the time. Arrogant people suck. Well, people who are too arrogant.

    He's quite similar to myself. I expect we'd get along just fine. He has excellent ideas, and his plan for a perfect world is brilliant. He ultimately screwed up the execution, but he was doing quite well for a while.

    well, i don't think i would be able to get along well with him. He would come off as an arrogant and hypocritical person. If i can see through him, I guess i would pity him. For all his cleverness, he is actually an innocent at heart. I mean, he wants to create a world where there is no evil. How much more innocent can one get? Where there is good, there must be evil. Without evil, there is no good. Yet, Light does not see that. He believes that he can create a perfect world void of all evil. Though that is commendable, it is not practical, even with the Death Note. If i can ever meet him in reality, I would most probably not like him. For one, he is too arrogant. For another, he is a hypocrite. Also, he is super competitive. I would say over-competitive. It is ultimately because of this competitive streak in him that lead to his fall. But, I would say he is a very interesting character. If I were to meet him in real life, I would not like him, but I will still be intrigued by his innocence and devilish streak, and might even observe him and his actions.

    Light seems like the kind of person I'd get along quite well with, as long as he kept in mind that if he in any way tried to purposely insult me by acting overtly superior, I'd have to kick his ass.

    That is, unless he started rambling about his overly-optimistic "perfect world" bullshit. Then I would once again have to kick his ass.

    I don't know if we'd get along or not. Because he's good at acting, isn't he? If he wants somebody to like him, he's good at making that person trust him. But if I could see through that act I might want to befriend him to try and get him to drop his crazy ideals. He was actually my favourite character from the manga to be honest ^^

    he's arrogant and hypocritical, both traits spawning from an over-idealistic and naive goal.

    he seeks a "perfect" world without crime ... which in actuality would probably mirror Hammurabi's mesopotamian society (ruling by fear), by making himself the antithesis of what his entire "world" stands for. That can be seen in two different ways : hypocritical or noble (taking the fall for himself to make the world a better place)

    he's insane, of course, and a very interesting person. I'd either want to study him (lol) or stay far, far away and make myself as harmless (to his plan) as possible.

    I don't like his personality and all of his talk about justice, perfect world and so on while all he do is killing, it might still be acceptable if he kills only the criminal, but no, he kill the innocent people too, that makes him the same with others common killers. From that point, I began to hate him. And more he’s a bad looser, he can’t accept his defeat, maybe that’s true for all people with superiority complex.

    But he is really a brilliant person, and his entire attempt to defeat his opponent is admirable, very cunning indeed. He able to predict mostly his opponent movement and make same plan to his own advantage, I really like it.

    I guess he is really the bad guy right from the start; we just follow the story from the antagonist's point of view.

    Light is arrogant, sure. BUTBUTBUT. He doesn't let that out to anybody but Ryuuku, most of the time. If you just happened to meet him, you'd prolly find him a nice person. Just, really smart. He wouldn;t have made it as far as he did without a damn good ability to hide his true feelings, after all.

    Taking that into consideration, I'd prolly like him. As long as he doesn't start talking too complicated with me, we'd be cool.
