  6. In episode 2, when the International Criminal Police Organization begin their meeting you can see that they each had a sign that said their nationality and name on them. All the names are actually names of famous soccer players from each of their respective countries

  7. After Light and L’s fight in episode 18, many fans asked if L was using capoeira (which is a form of dance fighting). Ohba hadn’t intended for L to be using similar techniques, but he liked the idea so much he declared it canon

  8. In the Death Note pilot manga, there’s a special tool known as the Death Eraser. It can erase names in the Death Note and revive everyone who had been killed by the Death Note

  9. Although in Death Note 13: How to Read, L’s intelligence is ranked below Light’s and Near’s, when Ohba was asked about this he replied saying that the smartest is actually, “L, because the plot requires it”

  10. Near and Mello were almost L’s twin sons. Ohba had considered this, but the idea was later put aside as he felt it was too out of L’s character. Although… Mello did inherit L’s sweet tooth and Near was given the hobby of stacking objects as a development from L’s habit of stacking sugar cubes
