Near is an anime character that gets a lot of hate, but that doesn't mean we can't take a look at some of his best quotes. Sure he wasn't as cool as L, and he did end up taking down fan favorite Light, but Near has some great quotes that are worth looking at. This list ranks Near's best quotes from Death Note, with the order influenced by your votes.

Near's win or die attitude is shown off in lines like: "If you can't beat the game, if you can't solve the puzzle, you're nothing but a loser." Near also has some great quotes about his rival, Mello: "To Mello, it's like playing a videogame against me, I think. See who gets to Kira, the last boss, first." Despite his arrogance, Near still has a great deal of respect for L: "For me and Mello, L has been the only person we adore, and the only person who deserves our respect."
