Who Is The Smartest In Death Note

No one can beat Death Note when it comes to shedding light on what morality is and how justice can be served, and all the characters involved in this trial often find themselves being a very lost cause. Although most of the focus in the series was on Light Yagami and L, the series also featured a bunch of characters who have attained mastery over playing mind games. The characters in the series are known for exceptional psychological skills like concocting forethoughts, manipulation, and strategizing each action with a well-devised plan. This article will list ten characters from Death Note who are acclaimed for their genius. Aizawa is very strict and stern when it comes to his job and doesn't like anyone in the NPA or the Task Force to goof around whilst the situation is dire. He takes great pride in his work and chooses to work within the law. Aizawa was the first person who suspected Light Yagami to be Kira, but as he had no evidence, he disregarded his suspicion.

Naomi is a former FBI agent who left her job after getting engaged to her fiance Raye Penber.

Aizawa is taken as the smartest person in the entirety of the Task Force, due to his keen intellect and quick thinking skills. As a former Secret Service and CIA agent, Halle is one of the most intelligent female characters in Death Note. She joined SPK to find out the real identity of Kira, who at that time turned out to be Kyosuke Higuchi. Over the course of time, Halle has come across many complex cases which makes her the most experienced person in the series. Apart from working under Near she also passes crucial pieces of information to Mello, which expands her ground where she gets surrounded with all the vital intel she could possibly gather. Naomi is a former FBI agent who left her job after getting engaged to her fiance Raye Penber. She is regarded as one of the most intelligent agents in the series, who had the chance to work with L in assisting him with the LABB case. Naomi was very cautious as she noted every little detail possible like not revealing her real identity, as it was the cause of how her fiance got murdered. If it wasn't for her grief taking over her investigative abilities, she would have become the greatest addition to the SPK. As she had previously worked with L, together they would have devised a better strategy to catch Kira. Reiji was the most intelligent individual among the eight members of the Yotsuba Group. He spent six years in the United States and graduated from Harvard University. He is also talented in Shogi at the 4 and level.

Reiji also possesses incredible social skills through which he can analyze his target's attributes by digging out every little detail about them. Pretending to be L, he even tricked mastermind Light Yagami into believing that Kyosuke Higuchi was the prime suspect of the SPK. Throughout the series, Watari was sidelined as L's butler, whereas he was the founder of Wammy House, which produced some of the most brilliant detectives like L, Near, Mello, Matt, and Beyond Birthday. He trained all of them to their greatest extent and worked as a middleman between L and the NPA. As a wealthy individual, Watari provided everything to the SPK for the Kira investigation. Throughout his life, he maintained L's identity a secret, and never let even a small mistake happen that could have cost both of their lives. Teru was a criminal prosecutor who played a pivotal role in shifting the suspicion from Light Yagami by taking his place as Kira and continuing the killing that had been stopped. He became the owner of Gelus's Death Note, through which he continued Kira's work.

Teru's personality is similar to Light Yagami's as they both share the same objectives and ideals. Although Teru was blinded by the glory of his idol, Kira, if he tried to work on his own intuitions, he would have outclassed everyone with his superior intellect. Although Mello was counted as one of the most intelligent detectives that the House of Wammy has ever produced, he carried an inferiority complex towards Near. He didn't want to catch Kira to stop his atrocities but to prove to everyone that he is the greatest detective of all time. Mello could've been L's successor but due to his egoistic disposition, he ruined everything. However, his death played a major role in revealing the real Kira. If Mello didn't let his emotions get the better of him, he would have outsmarted Near whilst then capturing Kira without dying in the process. After the death of L, Near became his successor as well as the No.

1 detective. For Near, each and every investigation is a puzzle as he has a knock for solving complex problems. It has also been evident that Near has a pragmatic approach to life as an existentialist, which makes him more mature than L, Mello, and also Light. He was the one who suspected that the fake L could be the real Kira. It was also the efforts of L and Mello, which brought Near to a conclusion where he found out that Light Yagami was the Kira all along. L is hailed as the world's greatest detective, whose identity remains a secret for his own safety. He is the only one who figured out that Kira lives in the Kanto region and is a high school student who wants to play Justice. Although no one knew the very existence of Death Note and Shinigami, L managed to join the pieces of the puzzle and successfully figured out the medium through which Kira was able to kill people. L totally believed his suspicions regarding Light Yagami. Moreover, if Light hadn't outplayed L with the help of Ryuk and Rem, the former would have got him in no time. Light Yagami was just a high school student, but after laying his hands on the Death Note, he started developing a god complex. From creating a fake bottom in his desk to hiding the notebook to using a shinigami to make his bids, Light exceeded everyone's expectations with his pure genius. It is not a child's play to trick the world's renowned detective like L that easily, but Light was the only individual who managed to do so. Light had backup for all of his plans and also used human subjects to act as Kira while he was under suspicion.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

39;ll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.

Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings.

When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.

That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
