The Best Ryuk Quotes From Death Note

He's a terrifying sight to behold, but Ryuk is easily one of the best characters in Death Note. Do you have a favorite Ryuk quote? For this list we're going to rank the best Ryuk quotes in all of Death Note, with the help of your votes.

Some of Ryuk's best quotes in Death Note are his snippy remarks to Light: "I didn't choose you. Don't you see this is all just an accident.

Ryuk also provides comedic relief throughout the series, especially when speaking about his love of apples: "For me, apples are like cigarettes and liquor for humans. If I'm deprived, I go into withdrawals."

    The Deal

    "You have lost, Light. Didn't I say in the beginning, when you die, the one who'll write your name down in a notebook will be me? That is the deal between the Shinigami and the first human to get their hands on the note in the human world. Once you enter prison, I don't know when you'll die. It's annoying to wait. Your life is already over. You'll die here."
