Yes, that's exactly what Light is...obnoxiously confident. Everybody that claim's themself as god is...besides God himself.

So you don't agree Yagami Light is arrogant? You don't think calling yourself "God" is conceited?




No. My point was that the experience of controlling the lives of billions of people and being able to control every aspect of the world, would lead to confidence. A real god would be more concieted than Light, simply because they have experience in being a god.

Butting in for a second - confident != arrogant. Arrogance is an unwarranted sense of self-worth. If you are as important as a god and think of yourself as being as important as a god... well, that's just the truth. And y'know, that quote of absolute power refers to humans. Perhaps gods are above that. o.0


Yes, but just because you can do though things, doesn't mean you're a proper god. A god's sense of self-worth should be based on whether they are good at being gods.

Of course. So I assume we agree then that just being a god doesn't make a character by definition more arrogant than Light.

You know what? I give up. My point was tiny and unimportant anyway.

Gotta agree. He calls himself God. What mere human will do that?



On the contrary, many monarchs throughout history have declared themselves to be gods; what makes Light more conceited than these people?


They are conceited people in the first place. They're no better than Light. No one is fit to be a God other than god himself. They're the same like Light, claiming themselves to be Gods.


1. How do you know God exists?

2. How do you know God is a "he"? (note that you said "god himself")


lol iagree whith ya

The fact is, Yagami Light calling himself god shows his ultimate arrogance yet. Even if he got like 100% on all subjects during the Ten-Oh university graduation exam, having a perfectly healthy body, incredibly great athleticism, having the Death Note and even having his name "Yagami" that is related to god sounds to me the experience of being a god, yet being a mere human. He is arrogant, but he really does have the qualities of being god. Unlike others that proclaimed themselves god, Light really does have the qualities of god. The only thing he doesnt have unlike other gods is immortality and invincibility and other god like qualities. So you might as well consider him a demi-god, since he cant have god like qualities while being human. Humans cant become god, its that simple. The highest limit they can reach is demi-god, nothing more.

1. Light doesn't believe in God. When he says "I will become the God of the new world" he means that he will become a "ruler" of the new world, not really a God.

2. It's "themselves" not "themself." Also, how do you know that there are more than one God? (note that "themselves" is a plural)


1. That's what makes him conceited. He thinks he can rule the world with a notebook. How much more arrogant can he get?

2. Well, how do you know it must be "themselves"? Why can't it be "themself"? Again, when someone thinks of "God" it just occurs to everyone that there is only one god.


1. I beg to differ. I don't call it "arrogance" due to the fact that he actually had a chance of becoming a "God" of the new world. Without L and Near, Light would have become a "God." I believe one is not arrogant if they have a reason to be arrogant. For example, let us assume that I am the fastest man in the world. When I say "I'm the fastest man in the world! I am a "God" of speed," is that arrogance? I believe not. I was just stating the fact that I am the fastest man in the world.

2. Do not use your error as an excuse. It never occurred to me that God (if such a thing existed) was a man, or was only one existence.



1. The fact that he thinks he can rule and control the world. The fact that he thinks he's needed in this world, he thinks he's so important. That's his arrogancy. Ok, so you are the fastest man in this world...do you think your speed is a necessity in this world? If you do, then your arrogant as well.

His arrogancy is just over the top. He thinks the world cannot work without him.


2. Error? where? Because I wrote himself instead of themself? It's my own personal preference. Everybody has their own.

But this question is stating "Which anime character is most arrogant" and I just simply answered: Light, because a mere human like him calls himself "god" which he is not.

And too much confidence, will eventually lead to arrogancy. That's exactly what happened to Light
