In the end of Death Note anime, Why did Teru..

..kill himself


According to Death Note Wiki, the explanation isn't clear and it's different in the anime and the manga.

The event you describe happened in the anime only, so we'll talk about that.

Light denies any knowledge of Teru. Teru is shocked and stabs himself with a pen which implies that he was upset that his "god" denied his existence and did it out of despair. However, this act also creates a diversion and allows Light to escape the warehouse so Teru could have been trying to help Light all along.

  • Ah, thanks, that had always puzzled me a bit but now that makes more sense, I guess Teru was just super devoted to him. – Oxcug Jan 5 '15 at 2:58
