When people saw the infamous fight between L and Light in Episode 18 many fans felt they recognized L's fighting techniques to be very much like Brazilian dance-fighting capoeira. Tsugumi Ohba, the creator of the series said that he didn't write it that way but he loved the idea so much that he declared it canon. How cool is that?

2. How opposites operate

L and Light are always depicted as opposites. If you're unsure, re-watch episode 2 and pay close attention to their computers. Light uses a PC and L uses a Mac.

3. A little too smart for her own good.

Naomi Misora was supposed to be a kickass female character intended to help balance out such a male-heavy cast but she was abruptly killed off sooner than expected. Why, you ask? Because she was too smart. She pieced together the Kira case too quickly. Bummer, seems like she would have fit in well long-term with super geniuses like L and Light.

4. Name Games

Creator Obha said he deliberately chose names that sounded real but were unlikely to actually exist, which is pretty obvious when you notice names such as Quarter Queen, Believe Bridesmaid, and Blues-harp Babysplit.
