spirited away no face

Franchise: Spirited Away

No-Face is a peculiar creature that first appears as a ghost, later as a monster.

The restrained spirit distributes gold and is transformed into a ravenous monster by the boundless greed of the bathhouse attendants.

It’s only when Chihiro refuses his gifts and feeds him a magical ball of herbs that his power breaks; it regains its original form and follows it as a faithful companion. The enigmatic figure of the oaf is symbolic for almost all characters of the fairy tale.

1. Ryuk


Franchise: Death Note

Ryuk is a shinigami — that is, a psychopomp god, often referred to as a “death god,” a spirit of death. It appears from the beginning of Death Note: from chapter 1, Ennui, of the manga, and from episode 1, Renaissance, of the anime, which is its adaptation. In the shinigami world, he is surrounded by other “death gods” who spend more of their time playing cards than killing, as they did in the past; they only kill a human to survive (see what killing does in shinigami).

As he is bored, Ryuk, to distract himself, decides to drop one of the two “Death Note” he has in the world of Humans, which fascinates him. This “death book” is capable of killing anyone if you write in it the name of a person whose face you also know, in order to prevent people with the same first and last name.

A seventeen-year-old high school student discovers the Death Note, Light Yagami, who is disgusted by the violence of the world around him and quickly sees in the notebook the opportunity to play the role of a ” God. ” Ryuk is forced to stay with Light, as he must accompany the owner of the Death Note until the latter dies or until the latter destroys the notebook or relinquishes the right to possess the Death Note.

To please him or in exchange for certain services, Light offers Ryuk red apples, for which Ryuk feels a real addiction: he adores them, a real addiction, finding them sweeter than those that can be found in the “World of Dead »
