L vs Light: Who's Better In Death Note?
It's hard to say who was better in the anime and manga series Death Note, but both Light and L were cerebral powerhouses.
Although Light prevails in this intellectual contest, L wasn't an idiot. Light was able to prevail because of...
THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH NOTE.
Misa's Shinigami vision and
L will never let anything go, even when Light falters
makes a few unintentional errors. This renowned
survived this long against Kira because he always takes extra precautions to be certain of something.
L is capable of leaping major risks, as he did when confronting Light, although Light is an excellent actor and can easily fool someone.
L quickly perceives Kira's thinking like that of a young adult with an ego and a competitive streak who despises defeat.
L takes advantage of Light's personality during their intellectual duel because he is similarly inclined and is aware of it.
