The King of Death, also known as the Shinigami King (死神大王, Shinigami Daiō), is the ruler of all Shinigami (gods of death) in the Shinigami Realm. Though he is only referred to in the third-person and is never seen in the main series, the Shinigami King rules and governs all Shinigami. He also controls all "distribution" of each and every Death Note given to all Shinigami upon their "creation." It is unknown from the manga whether or not he creates Death Notes or just has a certain supply of them, as he is unwilling to replace lost ones. It is also not known whether the Shinigami King actually enforces all the various rules of the Shinigami Realm. In the manga one-shot special (a.k.a. Chapter 109), it is revealed that the King of Death has a large, globe-like body mass which has (somehow) been suspended in the air with chains. He has a skull for a head, which is recessed within a larger, outer skull-like formation. He has four arms which hang from his body, each with only three claws on each of his "hands." He is regarded as a sort of father figure by all "lesser" Shinigami; and is said to be almost immortal. Many Shinigami refer to him as the "Old Man," and How to Read 13 says that he "must be very old" because of this. How to Read 13 adds that "not much else is known about him." Also, it is probable that the Shinigami King is impossible for humans to comprehend.

corruption... blasphemy... sorrow... DEATH... About me... I'm Erich!xXx_xXx I love music and writing just shoot me some comment on my page...XD “I think that when you spend all of your time focusing on what everybody else wants and what everybody else needs and what is good for the band, sometimes you neglect what's the best for you,” “Definitely. If I wasn't ordinary, this wouldn't feel really strange to me. It would feel very deserved and feel like vindication whereas being ordinary, thinking that I'm probably a pretty normal, ordinary person, I feel like we got put in a fish tank, kind of by accident.” “Your biggest fantasy is walking away from the life (they think) you lead.” All people in prayers will suffer...xXx_xXx the end... In the democracy of the dead all men at last are equal. There is neither rank nor station nor prerogative in the republic of the grave. John James Ingalls Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good. William Mitford Death--the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening. Walter Scott Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live. Henry Van Dyke A punishment to some, to some a gift, and to many a favor. Seneca Men fear death as children fear to go into the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other. Francis Bacon It costs me never a stab nor squirm To tread by chance upon a worm. 'Aha, my little dear,' I say, 'Your clan will pay me back one day.' Dorothy Parker The fundamental law of the social order [is] ... the progressive control of life and death. Jean Baudrillard, Symbolic Exchange and Death The first breath is the beginning of death. Thomas Fuller The play is the tragedy "Man" And its hero the conqueror, Worm. Edgar Allen Poe A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic. Joseph Stalin I'm not afraid to die, I just don't to be there when it happens. Woody Allen Death and life were not Till man made up the whole Made lock, stock, and barrel Out of his bitter soul. WB Yeats I know death has ten thousand several doors for men to take their exits John Webster Verse, Fame, and Beauty are intense indeed, But Death intenser - Death is Life's high meed. John Keats Death is the veil which those who live call life: They sleep, and it is lifted. Percy Blysshe Shelley Break in the sun till the sun breaks down, And death shall have no dominion. Dylan Thomas And come he slow or come he fast, it is but Death who comes at last. Sir Walter Scott Death is one of two things. Either it is annihilation, and the dead have no consciousness of anything; or, as we are told, it is really a change: a migration of the soul from one place to another. Socrates To fear death is nothing other than to think oneself wise when one is not. For it is to think one knows what one does not know. No one knows whether death may not even turn out to be the greatest blessings of human beings. And yet people fear it as if they knew for certain it is the greatest evil. Socrates Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to day To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. Shakespeare, Macbeth I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge, that myth is more potent that history. I believe that dreams are more powerful than facts - that hope always triumphs over experience - that laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death From the movie The Crow Death ends a life, not a relationship.
