This guy had a 200+ IQ and the ability to kill people by writing their names into a notebook with no evidence left behind but the notebook itself

How the fuck did he screw up badly enough to actually get caught?

tl;dr: he's a fucking idiot who made mistake over mistake.

He was actually an idiot.

He thought he was the only mary sue in the world.

Can't blame him really.
>>
>>160925207
This article seems to be ignoring the fact that Light wanted the world to know that Kira existed and that criminals were being intentionally picked off from above

>>160925529
>Whatever the bogus justification may be, this is a major victory for his opponents.

Looks like he doesn't ignore it. He just calls that itself a mistake.
>>
>>160925951
Naturaly it was, but it was a distinct part of Light's objective. He wanted people to know that they'll be killed too if they commit a crime.

Even with all the fuck ups the author points out. He still managed to "exonerate" himself, kill L, and steal his position.

His two true mistakes were allowing Mello to get the Death Note and intentionally walking into Near's trap to try and spring it back on him.
>>
Light was not a genius, highly intelligent sure.

He messed up because his ego took over and his arrogance tripped over his central prerogative of world domination. The moment L died and he was yelling at his grave was the moment his end was certain.
>>
>>160925039
Easy. His IQ wasn't actually 200. Happens with any "genius" fictional character, due to the writer not being a fucking genius and therefore unable to think like one. You'll find the genius character soon making very stupid decisions that don't seem to be decisions a 200 IQ would make.
>>
>>160926126
Having a high IQ isn't the same as being smart. It just refers to the character's ability to understand complex concepts like getting perfect scores on the entrance exams to a high ranking university

He would have actually gotten away with everything if it hadn't been for Misa and Mikami
>>
>>160926255
He got away everything if you discount the fanfic 2nd part.
>>
>>160926255
Mikami was just going along with Light's stupid plan. Light knew that Near's whole objective was to catch him in the act of writing his name and went along with it anyway.
>>
>>160926036
>Even with all the fuck ups the author points out. He still managed to "exonerate" himself, kill L, and steal his position.
Mostly because he acquired a huge plot shield after Naomi Misora.

If Light wanted to be known as a God and kill everyone with hearts attack, he still made additional mistakes pointed out in the article such as :
>killing Lind L Taylor (destroying his God rep at the same time)
>not killing at random hours and even hinting he's a student
>showing L he can control his victims
>showing L he's involved with the cops
>showing L he's in the list of the few hundreds who the FBI was investigating

Way to go from 10 millions to 10 suspects. And then from that point L stops advancing whenever it's convenient so Light can keep going.
>>
>>160926316
The entire plan revolved around Mikami doing exactly what he was told to do.

The one thing he did by himself was the reason why Light was caught.
>>
>>160926297
1st part is written just as bad as the 2nd, if not more. People hate the 2nd because it doesn't feel cool and yaoi like the 1st, but the tactics were just as contrived with the occasional well-written interesting plan.
>>
>>160926374
>>showing L he can control his victims
He didn't have much of an option with this one. He had to conduct his tests, but no matter what, it would have been obvious that they were being manipulated

>Way to go from 10 millions to 10 suspects. And then from that point L stops advancing whenever it's convenient so Light can keep going.

Because L reaches the point where he needs to get decisive evidence on Light to close the case, but the only way to do that is to catch Light in the act of using the notebook which he wasn't stupid enough to do until Near came along.
>>
>>160926381
Light should've told him to test the notebook before showing up.
>>
>>160926452
Light's keikaku was definitely more well written (even if it was really convoluted) than the stupid shit of "Mikami panicked, went to the bank, so we stole his death note"
>>
>>160926551
>He had to conduct his tests, but no matter what, it would have been obvious that they were being manipulated
Not really, I'm sure he could think of many ways to test the victims and wait a while between two tests. It wouldn't be the first time for him, and keeping the secret that Kira can manipulate his victims is much more important than knowing exactly how far he could manipulate his victims.

>Because L reaches the point where he needs to get decisive evidence on Light
And instead L just lets Light and Misa off the hook whenever he can so they can keep going.
>sure Light just handle that Death Note
>third Kira is dead? Ok Misa you can go now we wont even tail you and we didn't even leave a single camera in your room even though we could because otherwise the story would be over right now
>you definitely were the two Kira so let's work together so you can look at my face everyday and shit
>>
>>160926708
>Not really, I'm sure he could think of many ways to test the victims and wait a while between two tests.

He needed the results quick enough to know if his busjacking stunt would work

>sure Light just handle that Death Note
How was he supposed to know that merely touching it would turn him into Kira again

>>third Kira is dead? Ok Misa you can go now we wont even tail you and we didn't even leave a single camera in your room even though we could because otherwise the story would be over right now

The other task force members were sold on the 13 day rule. L wanted to keep investigating Misa, but the team wouldn't let him.

>>you definitely were the two Kira so let's work together so you can look at my face everyday and shit

He tells Misa that he's just working for L, not L himself
>>
>>160926604
Light's part 1 keikaku was
>I forgot everything so L will absolutely let me go even though Misa (proven to be Kira 2) forgot too and Kira is now clearly different from before
>L will let me work with him AND touch the notebook for a minute or so
>actually L will be on site for the third Kira's arrest because helicopters, why the fuck not? Even though he would have been arrested before L got out if the cops didn't fuck up
>L will let me touch the notebook at all even with the rule that says everyone who touches the notebook will die if it's destroyed

And from that point
>Misa just tell the whole world you're Kira so Rem can be retarded and kill L for me even though Rem could just make a deal with L instead to let Misa live and arrest Light which isn't impossible

The whole Death Note switch was stupid because honestly anyone would take a page instead of the whole notebook but the plan works if you think Near used the Death Note to manipulate Mikami. The other mindgames of the part were better and easily just as good as part 1, but the anime skipped some of them.
>>
more like 160 at best

ego was too big, thats always a massive flaw on a criminal/villain, he couldnt even wait until they all started having a heart attack until he said "I win"
>>
>>160926822
>He needed the results quick enough to know if his busjacking stunt would work
He needed the busjacking because he told L he was involved with the police when he conducted his tests (or later? I forgot)

>The other task force members were sold on the 13 day rule. L wanted to keep investigating Misa, but the team wouldn't let him.
They had proofs Misa was the second Kira and the murders ceased for a while after that, it's foolish to let her go unmonitored.

I mean it's still good and entertaining but the very concept of a Death Note limits your possibility to write tactics and stuff so you have to resort to weird things like Light continuously taunting L that don't always make perfect sense.
>>

Yeah, the police thing was stupid.

>They had proofs Misa was the second Kira and the murders ceased for a while after that, it's foolish to let her go unmonitored.

L wanted it. The rest of the team was stupid and took the 13 day rule as concrete proof of her and Light's innocence. Not L's fault
>>
>>160925039
Because he didn't have Rem as a plot device to save him, truth is Light was a fucking cocky idiot who got lucky that Rem loved Misa for no reason, L would have beaten him otherwise
>>
>>160927202
Misa fucked him over to begin with
>>
>>160927252
And the story wouldn't have been able to progress at all without Misa and Rem because the premise sounds cool but actually works horribly and only part 2 could use it (mostly) correctly without adding two gamebreakers halfway
>>
>>160927252
Without Misa he would have been caught much quicker, she was LITERALLY a human plot device
>>
>>160927395
Without Misa, he and L would've likely hit a stalemate. Light never produced a shred of physical evidence and L was never going to give his name. Misa did both

>200 IQ

Light had 145 at best he was a gifted studyfag who would've ended up being an above average inspector
>>
>>160926574
According to the epilogue chapter, Near wrote in the Death Note he stole "Mikami doesn't test his note then kills himself in prison three days later"
>>
>>160925529
even if you want your deaths to be known you yourself are meant to be hidden, every successful serial killer knows this.
with the death note all he had to do was set the times for the deaths so that it didnt reveal his schedule so that it would be impossible to narrow down suspects.
>>
the 2015 drama fixes the following death note asspulls and plot holes:
-Light is canon stupid, justifying all the many mistakes he has to make to narrow the suspects.
-The FBI Agents don't carry around their real names like idiots.
-No shinigami kills on Light's behalf (that's cheating)
-Near doesn't use a Death Note to win (that's also cheating)
-Mello is a Near split personality and so actually matters in his moments and also doesn't die for no good reason
>>
>>160930038
of course it also creates the asspulls and plotholes:
-L just kinda forgets to share or press on evidence he has.
-Prosecutors get to walk right into our secret fort base because
-Light forgets he has a Death Note on him for a while and Mikami forgets how to talk in the final showdown could've so easily been the first Death Note adaption where Light wins
>>

It's because he took the Lind L. Tailor bait

>>160925951
do you really think you can kill every criminal in the world without anybody suspecting that maybe this isn't normal and there is some higher power doing this?
>>
>>160930773
He could still have quit playing after that and never get caught but he was too bored and autistic about "winning"
>>
>>160931693
The classic rise and fall

>>160931400
The point is criminals would get the message anyways so not covering his tracks is a mistake.

>>160926255
Misa literally had nothing to do with Light's defeat, that was all on him and Mikami.

IQ doesn't mean you can't make mistakes. He lacked knowledge and you can only make a decision as good as your own knowledge, IQ lets you get maximum out of your own knowledge.
A complete retard is going to buy a new computer, and plug it in, instead of checking if the old one is plugged in. A genius is going to google it on a smartphone, and then plug the computer back in.

>How the fuck did he screw up badly enough to actually get caught?

He didn't though. He beat L and the story ended. It was pretty great.
>>
>>160926708
They had misa stalked for weeks, she was let outside and had matsuda on her for weeks with nothing happening, months of her giving no hints and then next moment comes along and Light proves that it is impossible for Misa to be Kira.

L now has a death note and a shinigami to deal with, you are trying to say L would give a fuck about Misa after months of her not being suspicious and proving to be a airhead when he has the real fucking infront of him.
>>
>>160927045
>they had proofs Misa was the second Kira

They had proof she was INVOLVED, she could have easily been threatened as a pawn which is why they took her in for questioning because they don't have facts to actually arrest her, then Light clears her with irrefutable evidence that it was impossible for her to be kira and proves to be nothing else but someone who was used as a pawn.
>>
>>160935931
This. That last chapter of the manga and last episode of the anime, when L dies, was very good. I hope another great series like this happens again.
>>
>>160927202
Bruv, Misa was supposed to have remembered L's name, if anything that was the plothole that was ignored.

>>160927395
Are you stupid? The only reason he was arrested in the first place was because of Misa. They would never have got a hand in the death note otherwise
>>
>>160936584
>Misa was supposed to have remembered L's name, if anything that was the plothole that was ignored.
Misa never really needed to know L's name. Even if she had remembered it, Light probably would have sat around and waited for Rem to kill L instead. Misa traded her life away a second time for nothing.
>>
>>160925772
This. It's like you guys never read a story in your life. The answer is always hubris.
>>
>>160938572

Light says the best case scenario was for Misa to remember L's name. That way he could stop the killings for a few months, wait for the case to run out of steam, and then quietly off L and the rest of the investigation team in accidents and get back to work.
>>
>>160938750
If that's the case, there's no good reason he shouldn't have killed the rest of the investigation team right after L died. He found Rem's Death Note alone and then called the others to see her sand, he could have written them all down instead.
