    Default Is Light already evil before the arrival of the death note?

    I just want to ask,do you think Light is already evil before the arrival of the Death Note?Or he became evil after he owned the Death Note?

    He wasn't evil to start with. Just naive, and immature.

    The Death Note corrupts him. As you can see from how his attitude changes when he forfeits ownsership.

    I agree...
    when he forfeited the deathnote, even he thinks that Kira is evil and he wanted to stop him(self).
    If you checked how the story went it started with a good intention and ended up with that annoying idea of being a God.

    Its not the death note itself, but the power it has. His "good intentions" to better the society with power not of his own was the real origin of how it turned out. Society canīt be changed by killing and terror - for the good it is.

    Nope, he wasn't evil.

    He just eventually got the DN and then...

    Absolute power = absolute corruption.

    He wasn't evil until quite a while after he got the Note. His behavior after he forfeited it proves that.

    Without the Death Note, Light would have simply grown up to be a brilliant detective like his father. His upbringing as the son of a policeman made him idealistic and very anti-crime while his brilliance made him arrogant, perhaps deservedly so. When the Death Note arrived, the power it gave him corrupted him, amplifying those 3 traits of his character to create Kira.

    He was...weak willed, I suppose. He made a great turn around in very short time and he had some really sad idea of "justice" but he wasn't evil.

    He was definently good before he had the death note. He just got too obsessed with his power.

    In the end, he was more obsessed with 'becoming God' than bringing justice, I think.
