yeah, i think he did become corrupted, but think about it, lets say that someone tries to do a stunt like this in the real world. kills most criminals police can't even catch (maybe a certain 9/11 terrorist) and makes the crime levels spike down drammatically, as well as strike fear into the people who thought about becoming a criminal themselves. if an opportunity like that arouse where this was possible would you take it, would you rather have things the way they are and just hope people will change out of their own free will?
I don't think he's evil, but his definition of justice is demented and one-sided. He doesn't care about the consequences of killing criminals without trial. It's almost like he's egotistic thinking of himself as a god. Uncle Ben from Spiderman once said, "With great power, comes great responsibility." It's sounds corny, but it's true. If you let having power get the best of you, you will suffer in the end.
I think that Light is evil, it seems that anime loves to put characters that are evil
but yet are trying to do good and that have originally good intentions but they lose
themselves in a battle that seems pointless and endless, but yet still it is the "good
fight", but Light is still evil.
He started out good and in the name of justice but then he went crazy with power and on killing everyone who found out about the death note and became a mad man lol
if he was like a robot it would be a paradox and he would explode
Kira kills criminals which is good
then kira kills fbi agents and even causes his father to die which is evil
so then if kira is evil he should write his own name in the note book? lol!
Do you guys think it would have been any different to the whole tyrany thing if it had been someone else with the deathbook?
Well i think that perhaps it might have been, but it would have to be someone very good and holy like the pope.
I agree! Light did kill a lot of people. He used 2 be good by killing the bad people. And, he started killing people he knew. Then, he became a psycho and started killing every one...
I think evil may be too strong of a word. He did do something that he thought was for the good of the world, and though they were evil things he did at first have good intentions.
Doing bad things for good intentions doesn't negate that he did bad things, however.
