Death Note Drinking Game

Death Note - The Chuggernauts

The Death Note Drinking Game will have players drinking to the anime Death Note based off the manga with the same name. This anime follows Light as he discovers a mysterious book that allows him to kill anyone in any way he wants simply by writing their name and cause of death. This series deals with a lot of similar topics throughout, such as light developing a god complex and socially awkward genius detectives. In these ways it makes the perfect template for a drinking game. So grab a drink and try not to lose your composure as quickly as Light loses his mind.

Players will be drinking to the anime Death Note. Additionally players will also finish their drinks during the dramatic chip eating scene or any time someone sees Ryuk for the first time.


Death Note Drinking Game Rules

Drink one whenever:

  • Someone mentions death. (Death, dead, dying, killed, murder, etc…)
  • Someone performs a mundane task dramatically
  • Ryuk bites an apple
  • Someone dies on screen from their name being written in the Death Note
  • Someone takes a bite of candy
  • Anyone says “L”
  • Light mentions how much hes helping humanity
  • L sits awkwardly

Finish your drink whenever:

  • Light takes a potato chip. AND EATS IT!
  • Someone sees Ryuk for the first time.

The rules that require players to finish their drinks only come up a few times throughout the series so they aren’t too overwhelming. And if you’re wondering what chip eating scene we’re referring to don’t worry, you’ll know it when you see it.


The Death Note Drinking Game follows a pretty good pace and makes sure players are drinking fairly consistently with how frequently “L” is mentioned by name and just how often the topic of death is talked about. So grab a couple drinks and watch Light on his morally questionable quest for justice.
