In this video, we go over the entirety of Death Note lore and compare Light Yagami / L to Batman. Could Batman solve the case and catch Kira or would Light figure him out first? Is he smarter than L or would he fall short?
(Includes lore and information from the Death Note Manga, Death Note: How To Read, The BB Investigation Novel, L: Change the World, and various Batman iterations in the form of Rebirth Batman)

  • Should I make another video on Batman or even L in the future? Let me know. Q&A (Read More) Q. What about Rem? A. This is in reference to the "Post-L" scenario I gave, and Rem fades away after dealing with L so Rem wouldn't be around to do anything, and I already explained that the first situation would have to end too quickly in either Batman or Light's favor for Rem or Misa to even appear. So in no situation would Rem ever be involved in Batman VS Kira. Q. You said Rebirth Batman, so why are you bringing up other Batman variations? A. The events of Convergence merged the Golden Age, Silver Age, Post Crisis and New 52 characters together into a single iteration that we call "Rebirth." This is why rebirth characters remember Rainbow Batman even though that happened way back in the Golden Age or how the current Superman knows about events that only Post Crisis experienced.

  • This is kinda bullshit, because DN is realistic story with a touch of mystery and stiff rules, and Batman is DC superhero character, and their comics are batshit crazy(heh), complete fecking madness with no logic or any restraint. Seriously, seeing if person lies by looking at them? Outsmarting 4-dimensional alien? And while being physically normal human? Clasterfeckery! Those universes are not compatible at all, unless you reduce the idiocy that superhero comics shit out.

  • This is really interesting

  • In one of batman's animated movies, he called himself batman inside his own head.. so he knew when someone was pretending to be his inner voice.. thats how he sees himself to his core.. and Bruce is the alter.. At what point does being named as a child cause the name written in the note book to take effect? What if someone went through a legal name change or had been a child of a troubled origins and ended up with a name change with out knowledge of the change?

  • Oh I wonder IF THE WORLD'S GREATEST DETECTIVE CAN SOLVE DEATH NOTE GUYS. It's not like Batman lives in a universe where he is friends with a superpowered alien and a shape shifting martian, so he's definitely going to rule out a book that kills people.

    Moiz CanteenwalaMoiz Canteenwala5 ngày trước
  • This would make for such a great story. I can imagine Light using Batman's no killing rule against him, like Joker does but by murdering Alfred or Catwoman or even the Joker. It would just be a really interesting arc.

  • Light knows no master detective is stupid enough to have their alias as their real name. As far as Bruce's subconscious is concerned, his true name is "Batman". Light wastes his efforts searching for Bruce's name that never was. By sheer folly, Batman wins.

  • While this was a pretty good video, but have disagree that the first scenario would go as quickly as you think. It would be difficult for Batman to prove that Kira exists or even where he Is operating (Unless he provokes Light In a similar way to L, but it would be out of character for Bruce to sacrifice human lives to help his Investigation.) And I don't believe Light would completely ignore Batman forever; he will eventually see him as a threat. The fact that an American Vigilante In a bat-suit Is going around Kanto Japan and spying on students for no apparent reason will attract the public's attention, and by extension, Kira's. He will then most likely figure out that Batman Is on to him and change the pattern of the deaths. And if the police decide to hide the names of criminals. I believe that Light would be entirely focused on getting rid of Batman first, then killing the Innocent. Light would try his best to prevent mistakes that lead to him being caught, even killing criminals less frequently. There is an excellent video by this VIworldr name Korotos Mystery Shack that points how Light lost in EP 2 of Death Note. (In how him killing Lind L Taylor leads to L finding out Kira is indeed a person and is in the Kanto Region.) But unless if Batman similarly provokes Light, In a similar way, he would be stuck looking for a criminal with an untraceable weapon. While Bruce might still find a connection with the time patterns, there are so many schools In Kanto, Japan, that finding Light so fast would be nearly impossible.

    • Well depending on which universe this takes place in if it's in the DC verse he wouldn't even need to prove anything but I'm assuming it's the DN verse but even in the show the police were atleast suspicious that something was happening and L knew or atleast had a strong feeling light was in Japan since alot of his first victims were Japanese also the shinto? Killer was something only aired in Japan And I can guarantee batman wouldn't be seen much less by the public he is well aware if hes spotted it would put Kira on edge and switching the kill pattern would only confirm Kira is in Japan since suddenly changing his pattern would tell batman he's trying to throw him off the trail

  • Question so is there any reason the Batman didn’t you know go to court when he was arrested where a lawyer or who is reasonably qualified could indemnify him against this and also probably get Gordon arrested for assaulting a billionaire who is the only person keeping Gotham afloat

    • @Tamara Anthony So if the magic book works like that, does that mean it is bound by legal documents of birth, so if someone has no citizenship does that mean they are immune to the death note because they have no legal documented name of any government?

      Victor RolstonVictor Rolston6 ngày trước
    • The Death Note doesn't care about aliases or what the victim considers to be their real name to require Bruce Wayne In this case.

  • Since the owner of the death note can see the true name with shinigami eyes, allow me to add another variable. This comes from the inheritance cycle books. A person's real name is his name in the ancient language. It remains the same one throughout their life but it can be changed. Although a rare occurrence it does happen. Since Batman essentially has impossible in his utility belt, that's just another tool for him in this quest. Choose the winner now😁

  • One thing I'm surprised wasnt mentioned here as a way to meet Light: Bruce meeting him as Bruce Wayne instead of Batman. He's a billionaire philanthropist, and starting an international scholarship program or something wouldnt be something out of the ordinary. Light is basically a valedictorian, so he could interview Light under the guise of the program and go from there. As mentioned, he'd probably have a pretty good idea that Light is Kira pretty quickly regardless, but could still probably find questions and conversation topics to confirm it further without giving away what he's doing

  • 19:00 Batman’s moves in the night in pretty sure light shopped afterschool and if I’m pretty sure light woulda notice Bruce Wayne cruising around or just anyone in the streets to recognize him woulda kinda make a fuss he would see and think something of it and how u said earlier he would find it Batman is Bruce Wayne

  • I doubt it cuz like come on Batman is smart he woulda came close but Kira woulda figured out he was Bruce Wayne before he could

    BellBell12 ngày trước
    • @Bell I mean that’s ONE possibility most likely tho at least what I think since light was really cocky in the early episodes he wouldn’t be as deductive as he was when he was working with L, so I think Batman takes it most of the time

  • The problem is he'd die before getting a chance. The way the book works is you need to imagine the person while writing their name in the book. Normally you'd think "oh Light couldn't kill him because he doesn't know he's Bruce Wayne" The problem with that is that Batman sees himself as Batman, that is his name & he views Bruce Wayne as the mask to fit into society. All Light would have to do is imagine Batman while writing "The Batman" in the book and that's the end of Batman.

  • Light figures out Batman's true identity and writes down his name right in front of him. Nothing happens. Light frantically tries it again and again as Batman approaches, quickly exceeding the 'incorrect name limit' of the notebook and making Batman immune to its effects. *Light:* "Why isn't the notebook working?!" *Batman:* "Because you wrote down _'Bruce Wayne.'"_ *Light:* "Yeah! that's your name, right?!" *Batman:* _"No."_ Batman knocks Light out and hauls him to jail. Meanwhile Ryuk is laughing his ass off in the corner, because Bruce's 'true name' does indeed come up as *_Batman_* in his Shinigami vision.
